In this case though, the confusion runs so deep, it's so profound, that it's almost wholesome.

Guy Reaches Breaking Point With Rent Division Between Roommates

It seems like this guy was being taken advantage of just a bit. Of course the last year has been historically difficult for so many people. There's a balance between being understanding/compassionate and also respecting your self through standing your ground and not letting people walk all over you. Human beings can be terrible when it comes to taking advantage of someone's good graces. By the sound of it, this guy is feeling a bit of regret over having to confront his roommates, but it also sounds like he didn't really have any other choice.

Wife Says Family's Broke, Husband Reminds Her They're Millionaires

Honestly, it's probably best to do what you can to steer clear of those revealing talks about the state of your personal finances around the dinner table. Especially whenever there might be some alcohol involved. There are just certain subjects that have a tendency to set people on edge. In this scenario, we have a couple who ends up being at odds over how they present the state of their financials to the rest of the world. The wife wants to paint a BS picture of them being broke, while the husband is more concerned with people knowing that they're in fact millionaires. Maybe just take a break from sharing all that information, and focus on something else.

Entitled Lowballer Doesn't Understand Lowballing

What a classic choosing beggar scenario right here. They want something, they get the something, and then their own blinding entitlement leaves them convinced that they somehow got screwed over. It's fascinating (in a bad way) on some level to watch this kind of interaction so grossly devoid of logic, play itself out.

Half Brothers Get Greedy, Threaten To Sue, Costs Them 158K

What we have here is a tale as old as time itself. Some half brothers get obnoxiously greedy, fly too close to the sun, and pretty much melt their wings off to the tune of $158K. If they'd have simply been reasonable human beings and offered some sliver of understanding in regards to the circumstances of the inheritance that was so graciously left behind, they might've actually gotten their share of the money. But alas, they took the different, ill advised route.
