Classmate "Saves" Goldfish By Releasing Them Into Ocean, Gets Reality Checked

Well, this is a pure and good old-fashioned fail right here, folks. Our hearts absolutely go out to the poor goldfish that were set "free" into the very body of water that they never wanted anything to do with in the first place. Was the classmate's heart in the right place? Sure. Sure, but that doesn't mean that what they ended up doing was nothing less than an absolute catastrophe. For some more drama from the aquatic realm, check out this story about a pet store employee who saved a starfish from being tortured by a Karen.

Clueless People Who Missed The Joke By Miles

With every great joke uttered, there's always someone out there with the potential to miss that joke by miles. Not only that, but they'll have the sheer audacity to treat the joke teller like they're the moron. It's obliviousness like that that feels like a kick in the teeth to humanity in general. Is there helping bozos who didn't get the joke? Maybe, but only if they want to be helped.

Tumblr User Thinks Honey's Made From Bees

This is one of those wild Tumblr interactions that we sorely hope is nothing more than a devilish troll on the part of the one profoundly clueless Tumblr user. The dude suggests that honey comes from bees that have been squashed up in some kind of grinder device. Seriously, where do people read some of this stuff? 

Check out some more gold from Tumblr with this thread about trade school and the point of tests.

Boss Disregards Tech Support's Friendly Advice

Many of us have ended up fielding our unfortunate share of lengthy updates that can then end up making it very hard for us to do our jobs, because our computers end up being necessarily incapacitated while they're updated. With that being said, the bossman in this tech support tale certainly learned his humbling lesson after pressing the very button he was advised to not press. Learn something new every day. Check out another ridiculous tech support tale with this lady who bought a wired mouse, and then got angry that it wasn't wireless

Loud Neighbor Thinks Sound Waves Go Side-To-Side, Pro Revenge Ensues

Just when we thought we'd maybe seen it all, we come across a frighteningly clueless human being who has been operating under the assumption that sound waves only move side-to-side. Either that was some kind of totally awful excuse for inconsiderate behavior, or they really meant that. I almost hope it was just a lame excuse. Either way, the pro revenge that ensued was quick and brutal. For some more juicy revenge drama check out this boss who docked an employee's wages illegally, and went on to pay the price

This isn't the first time we've seen someone make a complete fool of himself with a pricey new toy that he doesn't understand how to work in the first place, and we're sure it won't be the last. Clearly this guy missed memo on it being necessary to slow the boat down as you approach the pier.

IT Guy Assumes Professor Understands Technology, Professor Proves Otherwise

Don't judge a book by its cover. For better or for worse. What initially seems like a promising situation with a professor who gives off technology savvy vibes, ends up devolving into a puzzling situation where the IT dude has to work around the professor's glaring lack of knowledge on how an internet browser works. At least the issue was able to be "resolved."

Professor wants Chrome installed on their computer, gets Chrome installed, still asks for Chrome.

The Dumbest Questions From Customers

Someone on AskReddit asked for people to share the dumbest questions they've ever heard from customers. The responses really end up contributing a solid argument to the case that so many of us, turn our brains off when we walk into establishments. Just cause customer service exists, doesn't mean we have to stop using our brains.

Regional Director Doesn't Understand Computer Reboot, IT Patiently Enlightens Them

The more tech support tales that we come across, the deeper our appreciation becomes for all the cluelessness that IT wizards encounter on a daily basis. They really cross paths with some folks that genuinely don't know how to turn off their computers. Take this regional director for instance. The poor tech support employee involved in the painstaking interaction is forced to patiently guide them through the proper way to actually reboot their computer. And for the record, no, a black computer screen does not necessarily mean that the computer is in fact off. 

Check out some more juicy tech support drama with this tech support employee who got fired and unfired on the same day. What a trip.

Senior Network Engineers Fail To Follow Rule Zero, Company Wastes Thousands Of Dollars

Man, this is one of those outrageous tech support tales that almost seem too full of cluelessness to be real life. We have what seems to actually be a perfectly reasonable CEO who ends up being strung along for an ungodly long amount of time, because multiple senior network engineers are unable to put their heads together to resolve a rudimentary tech issue. The thing about taking video calls is if you want folks to be able to see/hear you, you've got to allow for those functions to run on your phone. You'd think this would be common sense, but hey, some tidbits of common knowledge are lost on folks. At least the matter was resolved.

Dumbest Things People Have Said With Full Confidence

It's remarkable to witness the ungodly displays of confidence that can end up encircling completely ignorant statements. This particular AskReddit thread pays homage to those very moments. You've likely been out in the wild at one point or another and heard something reminiscent of one of these at one point in your life. From there, it's really up to you as the listener to either intervene or just let the ignorance carry on as it seems to so stubbornly do.

People's Dumbest Assumptions About Jobs
