‘She never planned to pay me’: Woman places a $250 order for same-day pick up, then flips the script when presented with products

You need to be careful when you sell products online because oftentimes, people will say anything to get what they want. They will make up a whole family to get a discount if they have to. One person was selling some Christmas products (prefilled stockings) on Marketplace when she was contacted by a mother who wanted to make a large order for her kids. At first, the lady asked for a discount, which OP felt was reasonable as it was such a big order. They agreed on the price of $250, and made a p…

'We're not a daycare': Elementary school principal humbled by small-town mom after forcing students to walk 5 miles home from school

'We're not a daycare': Elementary school principal humbled by small-town mom after forcing students to walk 5 miles home from school

I feel like there are a few lessons I've learned throughout my lifetime that ought to be addressed. First of all, some individuals exploit their position of authority by using it for personal gain rather than the benefit of those around them. The lesson here is that, although it is something we are all familiar with, it says more about the person in power than it does about us. The second thing I've learned at the ripe old age of twenty-five is that motherhood is a superpower. A mother is stron…

Everyone says there is never a perfect time to have children and that you can never be fully prepared for such a monumental life change, and that may very well be true.

'I wish I was joking': Honest confidante rebukes the baby names chosen by her pregnant friend, saving the child from a lifetime of embarrassment

One of the huge downsides of having 8 billion people on the this Earth is that there are only so many 'unique' names to chose from.

Well, with the turn of the century, it seems like a lot of people have gotten extremely creative with baby names– and not in a good way.

‘We had to close the store before Christmas’: Local school organizes toy store for families in need with substantial discounts, new customer base ruins it for everyone

Good deeds are a dime a dozen, but this school really gave it its all so that kids would get great Christmas gifts from their parents who did not have a lot of money. Unfortunately, along comes a Grinch, today known as a Karen, and has to ruin it for everyone. In this case, many Karens. Let's start at the beginning… One school used to organize a toy store for families in need, and this store would be stocked to the brim with all kinds of donations.

'The entire house went silent': Family members guilt trip a couple into having kids, so they clap back in a way that shuts down the conversation for good

For childfree couples, the holiday season is usually the time of year you get chased around by all of your aunties and older cousins, pestering you about your life choices, your aging physique, and your inability to (so far) provide your bloodline with an heir. What is it, the 1700's? Is that all we're good for?

'That's 14 people in a small kitchen': Landlord brings young children to apartment showings at the home of another couple with youngsters, tenants complain she's being 'very unprofessional'

How would you feel if you knew your landlord was bringing a baby and a toddler to your place while she showed it to prospective tenants? I think most people would protest that, yet one landlord thinks she's actually perfectly fine bringing the kiddos along. As a parent, you love your kid more than anything else, and you think everything they do is cute and sweet and perfect. Even though you're head over heels in love with them, not everyone is as enamored with your little ones' antics. Parents…

'He tried to fight... [so] I got security involved': Entitled parents at a metal concert bully the crowd into letting their small children squeeze to the front; woman puts the dad in his place

Metal concerts are intense. For anyone who loves accidental punches to the face, getting their toes stomped, and eating the floor before having a 250lbs man help them back to their feet knows that a mosh pit is not a place for the weak. And it's certainly no place for a small child.

Sometimes on a warm afternoon, the local kids will hold a bake sale .

Of course, lemonade is a bit easier to make than baked goods. So parents might volunteer help out with that part. It's really sweet to see kids get excited about being little businesspeople for a day as they sit outside and play store keeper. Plus, if you live in a bustling are…

'We were all left stunned': Doctor refuses to page cardiac team for patient with heart palpitations, warns patient not to leave ward; so patient complies and calls team from hospital bed

Everyone makes mistakes, but not all mistakes cost lives, so working at a hospital, you better know what you are doing, lest the mistake end in tragedy. In this case, one patient was very lucky, due to his own quick thinking and frankly, courage, to do what he knew was right.
