Choosy Beggar Wants Homework Assignments Done Before Payment

The world's just never going to run out of terribly entitled, delusional, and downright cheap individuals that insist on wasting the time of sellers just trying to have a rational negotiation. It sounds like this choosing beggar wanted 22 homework assignments done, but without having to worry about paying for all that hard work. Yeah, good luck. For another ridiculous choosy beggar scenario check out this dude who complained about a $1 taco, and proceeded to get set straight by the owner

Twitter Thread: Guy Assumes Classmate's Stealing His Seat, Learns Otherwise

Someone's chopping up some onions in here, man. I swear. These aren't tears from sadness. Just a simple biological response to some fresh cut onions for an afternoon omelette. That's all. Alright, seriously though, this story from Twitter user @thomas___mcfall is making the rounds again, and it serves as quite the powerful example of the importance of not making assumptions about people that you don't know. In this case, the setting is a classroom, and the characters involved are a couple classmates from different corners of the world. One classmate mistakes another classmate's completely genuine niceties for selfishness/insensitivity. It turns out that he couldn't have been more wrong. 

Guy assumes that his classmate's stealing his seat every day, but he learns otherwise.

Teacher Uses Gummy Bears To Retaliate Against The System

Let this be a lesson to all of us that the power of gummy bears should absolutely never be underestimated. Gummy bears can motivate someone to dig deeper than they otherwise would never will themselves to go. Good for the teacher for using something that they already had to improve a situation from the unwanted place that it otherwise was stuck in.

The only logical next step is to write a note back to the classmate that wrote him this one, and say "not much, you?" But, just make sure that they have to wait at least 10 years before reading that.

Student Corrects Teacher, Teacher Can't Handle It

While it is a teacher's responsibility to know things, they're still human and are capable of getting those things wrong. It's when a teacher says something wrong and doesn't own up to it when things get weird. What's the value in lying to kids just so that you can maintain a false sense of authority? Sometimes teachers don't give their students enough credit, like this tumblr thread about a teacher underestimating their students for a social experiment. With the veritable weirdness some educators display, luckily there are also teachers who pulled total bro moves.

Dumbest Rules People's Schools Enforced

Just because they're rules doesn't mean that they're logically sound. In fact, some rules end up creating more unwanted chaos than originally existed. The old saying about how "if it ain't broke, don't fix it", is still being passed around for a reason. There's a strange order to the things that we view in this life as being disorderly. Of course, there are plenty of exceptions, but sometimes folks can really help themselves out by not tinkering around too much with what's already there.
