20 cringeworthy comments, DMs, and texts: 'Bro, how is the shark older than the USA? I doubt the shark has been alive for 2023 years'

The things people say on the Internet, man! It's remarkable what people elect to post on public forums for everyone else's amusement and consumption. Granted, sometimes it's totally intentional. People who fancy themselves to be aspiring comedians often turn to social media to find an audience. But oftentimes, the funniest Internet comments are the unintentionally hilarious ones. The ones where people forgot they were posting this online for everyone to see. The ones where people shared way too…

'When people start randomly talking to you at work': 25+ people's pettiest pet peeves

Sure, people's various passions, interests, and worldviews make them unique individuals, but sometimes it's your specific pet peeves that make you truly stand out. For instance, there are a lot of people in this world who are interested in science fiction movies, but not a lot of people in this world who are annoyed to no end by the breathing patterns of their nearest coworkers. We all would like to think that it's the positive aspects of our personalities that make us special, but we should be…

'I still cringe': 20+ online dating mishaps from hopelessly single folks

Without physical and social cues, dating can get lost in translation really quickly. When written incorrectly, a joke can get easily misinterpreted, sarcasm can remain unclear, and the potentiality for a first date can go down the drain in an instant. This is the reality of how most relationships begin in this day and age. It's sort of like how actors and performers discuss the differences between auditioning and working on a play or film. Mastering the art of auditioning is its own craft, sepa…

'I desperately need my [bonus]': Boss withholds holiday bonuses and throws a Christmas party instead, ignoring the votes of the majority of the office

If you had the choice between a bundle of cash and a cringey office Christmas party, which would you chose? For some, the Christmas bonus means a new set of tires or an in-home heater repair, but to others they'd rather peacock through the workplace, guzzling free cocktails and flaunting their shiniest blazer.

'[They] clap at the end of movies': 30+ Little moments of cringe that get on people's last nerve

Everyone has a thing or two that gets under their skin . For a surprising amount of people, that thing is “breathing.” So many people left thoughtful and interesting replies to our Facebook post asking, “What's something other people do that you find really cringy?” And many people replied that “breathing” and “eating” really bothered them. I understand---some people just breathe kind of loudly or in a whistly manner, and they're not usually aware of that. They're not even doing anything wrong!…

'He thinks his Groot impression will impress her': 20+ Moments of cringe that still haunt people years later

Kids and teens can't help but have a few embarrassing moments . Okay, maybe more than a few. As a kid, you're able to let loose and say and do pretty much whatever you want. Children usually know not to say bad words or talk back to adults. But there are a lot of nuances they don't understand, and a world of knowledge that they haven't had time to learn from. That's probably why it's so much fun to be around little kids while they're letting off steam, bouncing off the walls and babbling about…

'I had a dream I was a raw chicken cutlet': 15+ bizarre and cringe dreams stuck in people's memories

It's hard to find psychological meaning underneath some of these wildly bizarre dreams. For instance, how can one find meaning behind dreaming that you are a raw chicken cutlet climbing a cliff? Could it be that you feel like your life is uncooked and begging for adventure? Could it be that you don't quite feel like a human? That you're completely misunderstood? We're grasping at straws here because the dreams these folks shared via this r/AskReddit thread are so “out there” one has to wonder w…

Top 40+ Photos from the Weird Side of the Internet (November 16, 2023)

The internet is many things: a place to connect with friends, read, write, shop, and discover a treasure trove of the oddest photos imaginable . When the internet was younger, it was a pretty magical place to be. You could find a lot of interesting websites about celebrity gossip or your special interests or websites like ours, full of memes, videos, and fails . I personally really miss the original Farmville game from Facebook… the hold it had on society in the mid 2000s-2010s was really somet…

'I don't want my server to have a sense of humor': Waitress faces online backlash for her jokey sense of humor with customers

This waitress wanted to share a story about a family interaction at her job, but commenters took the customers' side! The OP has a few memorably cringe lines. If a waiter ever handed me water and in the same breath told me about how it had “came out of the dinosaurs years ago. [It's] just filtered super well," I'd hesitate to eat there. What a weird thing to say about a fresh beverage! Perhaps one of the worst ways to make water sound appetizing is to remind the customer of how water filtration…

You might do a double-take and think you're misreading these signs. Fortunately, you're not crazy. These are actual signs from billboards, retail stores, and public bathrooms galore. Some of the requests being made are so ridiculous that you begin to question everyone else's sanity. For instance, do people really wash their feet in the sink of a public bathroom? Do people really tweet about a fire in the building before evacuating? Do the marketing teams of these major chains really not catch g…

'If someone tells you they had 10 crazy roommates [...] they are the crazy roommate': 30+ red flags to watch out for when choosing who to live with

Finding the right roommate is just like finding the right apartment: sure, desperate times call for desperate measures, but you cannot compromise too much, or else you'll face the consequences. At the end of the day, a bad roommate can ruin a great apartment, whereas a great roommate can at the very least improve the experience of living in a bad apartment. At least the two of you are getting along as you suffer through it! If the two of you do not get along, it doesn't matter if you have a was…

'What I ordered vs. what I got': Top Mildly Infuriating Moments of the Week (September 28, 2023)

Sometimes, being an adult means having to endure life's countless inconveniences. These can range from having a food craving and receiving a soggy delivery to waiting at the DMV for what feels like an eternity. When you find yourself confronted with one of life's mildly infuriating moments, there often isn't very much you can do. You can throw a fit, but 99% of the time, that will do absolutely nothing.

'For a winter play... I offered to do the worm across the stage ': 25+ Moments of cringe that keep people awake late at night

We all have at least one moment in our lives that makes us shrivel up with embarrassment (and if we're being honest with ourselves, there's definitely more than one cringey mistake we look back on). I used to be way more embarrassed when I made mistakes, but the older I get, the more mistakes I make. I'm getting used to it, I suppose. If you let you of your need to be perfect and impress all your friends, you have a little less cringe to look back on at night wondering, “Why did I ever say that…
