Misfortune Monday: Life Is Uncertain

For every small thing that can go right, there's about a hundred things that can go wrong. Trampolines get blown away, septic tanks explode, cars drive into lakes, and frisbees get caught in trees like way up there. We know that the world is unpredictable but that doesn't stop us from continuing to try to get things right. That said, bad things just keep happening.

Biggest Red Flags People Got During Job Interviews

Not all jobs are made the same. Looking for a job can be a dramatic adventure fraught with personal doubt and harsh self evaluation. It's a moment that inspires many painfully relatable job interview memes. Honestly it's weird that we have to name our own value as people and jockey with employers who would like nothing more than to get as much work out of us as possible for the least amount of compensation possible. Some jobs are definitely better than others, and it's apparent during the interview process. A lot of them are worth a "screw this, I'm out."

Retail Memes For The Customer-Weary

Tyrannical managers, dull coworkers and entitled customers. That's what anyone who's worked retail will tell you is their experience, day in, day out. Many of us will work in a store or restaurant at some point, and there's not much to do but battle through the daily grind and look at retail memes to dull the pain. For a fun story, here's an entitled customer who expected a store to stay open late just for them.

Times People Said "Screw This" And Noped On Out

There are moments in our lives when, despite everyone's best efforts to keep us around, the benefits clearly don't outweigh the risks, and we have that freeing moment when we realize we can just leave. It can be a bad job or sketchy situation. Sometimes it just take a "screw this, I'm out" moment for us to notice that it's probably a better idea to set out for greener pastures.

Inconsequential Things People Hate With A Passion

The more you get to know people, the more you realize it's the smallest things that often make us the most upset. Car got totaled? Too bad, gotta move on. Someone took your designated parking spot? This cannot stand. We all have our preferences, things that get under our skin, and petty things we're extremely passionate about.

Horrible Things That Are Somehow Legal

There exists a crappy balance between legality, convenience and profitability that we run into every day. Whether it's a company making their infrastructure deliberately confusing, someone making claims that are technically not unprovable, or slight miserable inconveniences, some stuff just feels like it shouldn't be allowed. For some intriguing adventures, here are things people later found out were illegal.

Guy Wastes Time of Predatory PS5 Scalper

Sold out PlayStation 5s have been a boon to predatory scalpers everywhere, who are able to buy the consoles, continue the cycle of scarcity and resell them for a stupidly high price. It's unclear who'd be willing to pay upwards of a thousand dollars for a new game console, but people are dumb, so it's probably worth a shot. This guy got the attention of a dude trying to sell a PS5 for 900 dollars with a straight face, and decided to inconvenience him. For more messing with scammers, here's a guy who used made up neighbor drama to troll a scammer.

For some stupid reason, people think they can bully artists into drawing stuff for them. Seriously, this happens a lot, like this artist who trolled entitled fans who asked for free drawings. That said, every entitled individual with unreasonable demands is an opportunity to make a jerk look dumb.

Boss Micromanages Themselves Out of The Job

Bad managers have a habit of losing sight of all the non-necessary and extra tasks they demand of their employees. It just so happens, a lot of times when employees revolt by doing their exact job description, the shortcomings of the boss are revealed. It's kind of beautiful, actually.

Man Orders Boxes, Repeatedly Gets Granola

Anyone who has ever muddled through the rollercoaster of trying to deal with customer service that works for a massive company knows that the process can be profoundly frustrating.

Entitled People And Their Cartoonish Demands

It seems like everywhere you look there are entitled people with audacious demands. A boss who wants someone with 5 years of experience who will work 60 hours a week in exchange for old DVDs. A miserable stranger who wants to trade a stained gym bag for a brand new laptop. Entitled people never seem to get their laughable demands, but that doesn't stop them from trying.

Client Refuses to Understand What Broken Arm Entails

This guy gets a lot of belligerent customers, whether they're a private school upset about getting upgrades after a charity or a treasurer who doesn't understand numbers. In this case it's a client who seems to want him to outsource the work, but also not outsource it at the same time. Sounds like a fun person to do business with.

When People Realized Their Boss Was Dumb

It can be really frustrating to realize your boss is a goddamn moron. Some bosses are just good at hiding the fact that they have no idea what they're doing, but some are not quite so good. Don't get us wrong, many bosses are competent, but these ones really let the stupid cat out of the idiot bag.

Imperfect and Frustrating Things To Boil Perfectionist Blood

We're human beings who make bad, convenient decisions and overlook small errors. It's probably best that we learn to overlook small "not my job" moments or annoying little design failures, but some of them are hard to overlook. Even one out-of-place sprinkle can inspire some strong feelings about what should go where. It's not fair.

Entitled Neighbor Throws Tantrum Over 15 Dollars

If this was any more money, even 50 bucks, it would make at least some sense why they wouldn't be able to pay it all back on time. Word on the street is that their dog wasn't even sick. You can really tell people stop wanting to have a productive conversation when they start saying "honey" a lot. It's stupid and weird, but that's the path chosen by entitled people with their audacious demands.
