We're just having a friendly conversation. Though you never know when auto correct will strike next. So double check every word, and have a laugh at some people who should have made sure they said what they meant.

Polite-ish Ways To Tell Someone To Shut Up

Some of us are talkers, and hopefully you know who you are. There comes a time in every conversation's life when it's time for that conversation to end. Maybe it's when the one person starts talking about their favorite cat names. It could be when you find yourself saying "wow, that's crazy" for the fifth time. But being basically polite people, it helps to have strategies that are better than shouting "I hate you I hate you I hate you." Our politeness gets us into some weird situations, like these worst things people ate out of politeness.

Tumblr Users Explain Older Generations' Confusing Texts

This enlightening Tumblr thread shines light on the glaring differences that can arise in a texting conversation between a millennial and a boomer or GenXer. Basically, it boils down to the millennials (or younger generations in general) trying to text like they think they'd sound in real life, while the boomers are apt to text more formally and technically correct regardless of how it'd sound when read out loud. 

These different approaches definitely contribute toward some avoidable misinterpretations between folks. What you might've viewed as a passive aggressive text from a parent was actually just them trying to space out their words more. Weird. 

A funny Tumblr thread on different texting tones based on generation people are born in. | averagefairy old people really need leam text accurately mood they're trying represent like my boss texted wondering my semester is over so she can start scheduling more hours and like my finals are done 15th!

This one's an oldie but a goldie. Whether or not this is an actual series of conversations between a mischievous daughter and her exasperated mother, doesn't matter.

Dude Doesn't Know How to Fish, Tries to Borrow Boat

He doesn't know that you need a license, that you need to get up early, or that there are different kinds of fish. Dude doesn't even how the boat is stored and he want to just go and take it. And to top it all off the reason he needs the truck is because he messed up his own car. You can't ignore the boldness of entitled people and their frustrating demands.

Anti-Vaxxer's "Reasoning" is as Incoherent as One Would Expect

Many of us have had that moment where you're talking to a friend or family member and then BAM, they hit you with their stupidest beliefs. After watching a single fringe Youtube video they now think they're an expert who's done "research." Sometimes they snap out of it, like this Anti-vaxx mom who switched sides.

Most Polite Ways To End Conversations

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about the most effective, polite ways to shut down conversations with persistent chatterboxes. We've all been there, busy just trying to muddle through a day, maybe in a rush to get somewhere, and then you cross paths with the immovable, breathless, object that is a passionate chatterbox. It's as if they are so involved in venting to you or whatever ears are around, that they're incapable of seeing the clear sign that nobody wants to hear what they have to say. Consider trying out these polite conversation enders the next time you fall prey to a chatterbox in the wild.

Persistently Uninterested Tinder Match is a Bullet Dodged

Pretty much the only benefit of online dating is that if you don't want to talk to someone, you don't even have to respond. Sometimes people don't do a great job of conversations, so we get moments like this. For some other dating mishaps, here are women who dated toxic "nice guys"  as well as a woman who bombarded a man's phone with a storm of texts.

This dude unknowingly got a first class pass aboard the troll train. Yep, this is a good old-fashioned case of a wrong number getting tricked and toyed with.

Son's Shirt Says "Players Gonna Play", Karen Gets Offended

Karen's always looking for something to get mad about. Such is the way the world works for her, until she gives herself over to exploring that strange thing called peace. In the meanwhile, we have another golden example of someone getting all kinds of worked up over a whole bunch of silly nothing. Yes, it seems that one parent's son wore a playful shirt, and then Karen proceeded to express great discomfort over the signal that the shirt was sending out. Okay then, Karen.
