You see it over and over again, someone parks like a jackass, then finds that someone can be a jackass right back to them. This guy who wasted an illegally parked Karen's time is another good example. People will never learn when it comes to this stuff, which is why people keep having to step in.

Client Demands Unblocked Spam Filter, Regrets His Decision

There's nothing quite like that sweet "I told you so feeling" you get when a customer gets exactly what they wanted and learns that they screwed up. It feels good to drink in the visceral feeling of an outsmarted horrible customer. Customers are often wrong, but too few of us don't give a rip, so this kind of interaction is as rare as it is sweet.

Parents and Their "I Just Looked Away For a Second" Moments

Oh, the unparalleled panic of losing your kid at the store. It's common knowledge that kids are weird and dumb, and as it stands they shouldn't be trusted. Look away for a second and they're off trying to drink toilet water or join a new family. Sure, we eventually grow to resent the illogical things our parents do, but for a real long time it's you being the idiot.

Tumblr Thread: The Yarn Community Has Serious Drama

One wouldn't think that the yarn and knitting community would go to bat for their extremely strong opinions on the kind of material that's most likely to set a baby on fire, or that there would be people faking their deaths, but you would be wrong. Tumblr gets into the politics and colorful internal drama of the yarn people. It's reminiscent of this tumblr foray into the drama of the art world.

Lazy Manager Karen Lets Everything Fall To Pieces

In this world, stories of incompetent managers and entitled Karens aren't rare. There are dumb bosses like this manager who suspended an employee and then expected them at their next shift. In the apocalyptic world of entitled Karens, there are tales like this military wife Karen who demanded salutes. But when the two are one in the same, things can get especially ridiculous. At least this one had a happy ending.

Dumb Things People Witnessed That Leave Little Hope For Humanity

There are some real dumb idiots out there. We all like to think that just cause we have cars and planes and indoor plumbing that the standards for your average person's grasp on reality is vastly better than say, a dirt-farming medieval peasant. But then you talk to someone for 5 minutes and realize that they don't believe in air. What's worse is the dumb things people say with mystifying confidence.

Bus Driver Strategically Gets Rid of Bus Zone Parkers

It's all about aligning those incentives and consequences. This bus driver was told not to pick people up outside of the designated zones, but dudes just kept parking in those zones, so naturally something had to give. When put in a no-win situation, it's time to change the game. Parking can be a big source of stress and justice, like this one where a guy teaches a lesson to a handicap spot hog.

Times Travelling Americans Realized "I'm Not In The U.S."

Culture shock is real, and sometimes a very small detail is enough to make you realize that the things you take for granted are definitely not standard. It could be as small as finding out milk is sold in bags, or as big as realizing that traffic laws are more of a suggestion than anything else. That said, non-Americans get some serious culture shocks when they get to the States, and some would be shocked to realized that there are some Western foods that are weird to visitors.

Humorous Times People and Things Were Singled Out Unfairly

With all the misfortune life likes to throw at people, there are moments when life has a way of singling certain people and things out in a way that's so unfair, it just becomes funny. To think that the universe has an agenda against one particular person or thing may be severe, but sometimes it sure seems like it.

The Worst Foods People Have Eaten

Food is one of the great joys of life. But when it goes wrong, cursed food can quickly become one of its great terrors. Sometimes we eat stuff that sucks to be polite guests, sometimes we don't realize what we're eating is gonna be bad, and sometimes we're just stupid. At least when it's over we have new insight on the worst things we've tasted.

The Dumbest Dogs People Met

A smart dog is an amazing thing to behold, like this story of a dog who figured out how to herd a lawn roomba. That said, dog geniuses are hard to come by, and the spectacle of smart dogs are far outweighed by the hilarious, pitiful and shocking antics of incredibly stupid dogs. For all their shenanigans, their dumbness is still endearing.

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.
