Maybe it just wasn't his day. Maybe the nerves got to him. Trying to put on a performance on live TV can be a nerve-wracking experience. At the very least he might be encouraged to manage his bloated ego for moving forwards.

Angry Customer Doesn't Realize That It's April

Hey man, these are strange times. Time itself seems to be kicking along at the strangest pace. It could be a result of the dystopian world we all found ourselves muddling through about a year ago. With that being said, it doesn't hurt to check that calendar before bombarding a call center with a fiery complaint that absolutely could've been avoided in the first place.

Karen Won't Accept That Woman Doesn't Work At Store

There's entitlement, and then there's blind ignorance that ultimately manifests in a nightmare of a human being that refuses to hear the obvious truth their being told. This particular case of an entitled Karen is just plain old discouraging. All the credit goes to the woman being "accused" of working at the store, for delivering a spicy silencer of a comeback. Check out another case of an insufferable Karen with this Karen who lied about a back injury, and ended up getting outed.

Film Tropes That Grind People's Gears Like None Other

There are far too many elements present throughout a movie that can possess the audience with all kinds of unrealistic expectations, or just flat out frustration that life certainly ain't like it's portrayed in the movies. Like the whole waking up with no bedhead situation. Or perhaps the frequent examples of entirely unnecessary self-sacrifice. Maybe you'll resonate with some of these.

Teacher Assumes TV Trolley Doesn't Need To Be Plugged In, Learns Otherwise

Just because someone's a teacher doesn't mean that they haven't fallen through the cracks, and missed the boat on something that's so obvious it's pretty much in the realm of common sense. With that being said, it sounds like this teacher was just having one of those days. Tech support has to weather the storms of ignorance enough as it already is. The least the rest of us can do is to show them the respect and patience they deserve. Glad that everything was able to be resolved in this tale though.

Woman Can't Stand Roommates, Breaks Lease, Roommates Flip Out

If you're not prioritizing your own needs, then people are bound to take advantage of that and walk all over you. When it comes to maintaining the balance in the fragile ecosystem that can be an apartment/house with younger roomies, it can end up being a bit of a struggle. Dramas can break out at a moment's notice, and if people aren't committed to playing nice with one another, you can find yourself in some real hot water. In terms of the scenario we have here, it seems like the woman's decision to move on out of the place was totally warranted.

Unfortunately, this isn't the first time that we've encountered a tale involving a company failing to recognize one of their employees for what they're worth, and we highly doubt it'll be the last time.
