'I had to politely tell her how ridiculous it looked': Kid prevents parent from baking random TikTok recipe

'I had to politely tell her how ridiculous it looked': Kid prevents parent from baking disastrous TikTok recipe

Today is a great day to remember not to believe everything you read online. This is especially true if you're swiping through social media apps like TikTok and saving the recipes for later. A lot of them might look good on camera, but they won't actually taste good. I actually do sometimes make TikTok recipes but only by first looking up a proper recipe for it elsewhere. For example, there was a parmesan potato recipe going around that looked excellent, so I just looked up a proper recipe onlin…

20 Cooking Mishaps for Wannabe Chefs Who Can’t Catch a Break

Nice going there, chef! If you're a viewer of The Bear but you can't cook to save your life, you may have found yourself pretending to be Carmy in your tiny kitchen as you boil a pot of pasta to complete imperfection. The truth is that no matter how many times you choose to mumble “yes, chef or ”no, chef" while you're cooking, some hopeless wannabe cooks simply are not capable of improvement. It's the same for folks who can't exercise via running. Some people are just not meant for it. After al…

'I'll make sure it's $30 Every. Single. Time': Employee gets in trouble for expensing $1.02 above the limit, maliciously complies and costs the company 3x her normal spending

'I'll make sure it's $30 Every. Single. Time': Employee gets in trouble for expensing $1.02 above the limit, maliciously complies and costs the company 3x her normal spending

Sometimes, being a stickler can backfire majorly. This manager learned that the hard way after calling out an employee for expensing a mere $1.02 more than the usual limit. She was given a stern “talking to” despite the fact that she rarely spends anywhere close to the $30/day amount when she travels for work. Well, that all changed quickly when the Redditor decided to maliciously comply following her manager's unnecessary tirade. She shared her story via this thread on Reddit's r/MaliciousComp…

'Girl [is] sleeping across all 5 seats in the cellphone charging section': 25 Times that airports were the worst part of the trip

Airports are one of those necessary evils in life. Sometimes you want to be zipping down a ski slope or splashing in some clear blue water at a beach somewhere. But in order to get there, you'll have to endure a few hours of airport nightmares . I can't begin to tell you how many fake cell phone chargers there are in our country's airports. Judging by the folks at r/mildlyinfuriating who shared pics of their latest airport adventures, people absolutely love to get stickers that look like chargi…

Update: 'It was enough to fire him immediately': Food hall managers keep kids and "fancy bigwigs" waiting outside in 90 degree heat

Dining halls serve hundreds or thousands of people each day, so keeping things running smoothly is paramount. If you've ever wanted to waste a lazy afternoon, spend some time watching videos of how professional chefs make lunch for the masses. It's fascinating to see the processes behind budgeting for the ingredients, then cooking a massive meal for hundreds of people . Instead of cooking for just one person, lunch chefs have to cook for hundreds, sometimes only with one or two people to help t…

20+ bizarre food delivery stories: 'A grown man [who] insisted that I refer to him as Snow White'

20+ bizarre food delivery stories: 'A grown man [who] insisted that I refer to him as Snow White'

Who hasn't had an embarrassing late night delivery story? We all get food cravings, especially after a long day or a night out. Sometimes, it's the only time you allow yourself to eat certain things. For me, that would be cookies and McDonalds. It happens more frequently than I'd like to admit, and when it does happen, I like to destroy all the evidence of the delivery once I'm finished eating and pretend like nothing ever happened. I mean, do calories even count after 11 p.m.? Though my intent…

'She will straight up ignore you': New sister in law gets called out for avoiding everyone in group setting

'She will straight up ignore you': New sister in law gets called out for avoiding everyone in group setting

This person is baffled by her SIL's decision to attend family events— and then refuse to say a word to anyone. Maybe there's at least one person like this in every family. Sometimes there are underlying reasons why people aren't talkative at the function. If you go to a party and one person just won't chat with anyone, they tend to get ignored. If that's what they want, that's what they'll get. This person wasn't about to ignore the non-speaker at this family party, though. It seems like this w…

‘He wanted me to make him a sandwich 3 hours after closing time’: Servers Share Most Entertaining Celebrity Customer Stories

‘He wanted me to make him a sandwich 3 hours after closing time’: Servers Share Most Entertaining Celebrity Customer Stories

Servers wait on people from all walks of life, and that includes celebrities. In this thread, they shared the good, the bad, and the ugly. Back when I was a waitress, I didn't meet a single famous person. I guess the diner I worked at wasn't exactly in high demand, and it was also in a pretty rural area, so I doubt most people have heard of it. There was this one time when I thought I had waited on Paul Rudd, but nope, it turned out it was just a look-alike. To be honest, I wish I had him as a…

'Owner's called me 12 times in the past 3 days': Server quits on the spot after being tipped $0 by customers

'Owner's called me 12 times in the past 3 days': Server quits on the spot after being tipped $0 by customers

A waiter lost out on hundreds of dollars, but the restaurant's owner acted like nothing was wrong. It's poor management decisions like this that lead employees to quit… and this person did quit on the spot after being treated badly. Some people move from serving to managing and completely forget all the actual problems that waitstaff encounter. It seems like once the apron is off and the newly-appointed manager works on spreadsheets or takes naps in the back office, they stop caring about their…

'Arguing with customers online always leaves a bad taste': Customer writes snarky BBQ review after owner insists they write one

A lot of diners only leave reviews for restaurants when things go wrong. Unless you're an avid foodie who documents their day-to-day eating via review writing, you probably only leave reviews when a place has wronged you. Maybe you leave one star for the Italian restaurant that served you microwaved noodles, or leave a warning for the next person to order from the coffee shop that gave you spoiled milk in your beverage. There are lots of times people have exceptional meals, but don't think to l…

Mom gets back at cruel P.E. teacher for making kids run in the blistering heat: 'No one likes him!'

Mom gets back at cruel P.E. teacher for making kids run in the blistering heat: 'No one likes him!'

Everyone had an unnecessarily toxic gym teacher at one point in their schooling. Did they motivate you to be better about exercising? No. Did their cruel tactics build character in you? No. Were any of their methods productive besides helping you learn how to avoid the wrath of a bad person? Certainly not! Of course, there are effective gym teachers out there, but today, we are talking about the bad apples that need to be called out. So with that in mind, this post goes out to any of you who ha…

'She used the extra key': Landlord enters tenant's apartment while they're at work, replaces fridge, then leaves all food outside to spoil

Just because you pay someone rent every month doesn't give them the right to enter your apartment whenever they want… This landlady did exactly that, using her extra key to enter her tenant's apartment and replace the fridge. Her tenant wasn't home, and was actually at work when this happened. The tenant took to r/mildlyinfuriating to express how angry they were after they came home and found all their food out on the counter… Left to spoil. Who raised this woman? I'm sure it's not the first ti…

‘You’ve got some nerve…': Entitled guest mistreats server, server decides to teach the guest a ‘lesson’ in manners

Serving customers is not always an easy task. Having said that, most people who decide to work in the hospitality sector are people who like engaging with customers and have excellent interpersonal skills. Nevertheless, it should be noted that there is no justification for rudeness or improper behavior on the part of clients. The story that follows is an account of an irritated server. For some time now, the Original Poster (OP) has been employed by his brother-in-law, who runs a Mexican restau…
