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.

Horrible Names People Encountered

You'd think parents would have better judgement, but sometimes people get stuck with incredibly silly names. There are some parents out there who either didn't give a name enough thought, or tried to get too clever with it. Man it would really suck to be named after a transformer.

Obvious Stuff People Learned Way Too Recently

We often take the names of things, and certain processes completely for granted. We often overlook the logical process of how something came to be just because we've never had to actually think about how it got that way.. It makes us feel smart to finally figure something out, but stupid that it took that long. There are a lot of obvious things people realize way too late.

Obvious stuff that people realized way too late | posted by weakenedstrain 42 here song Jingle bells, Batman smells, Robin laid and egg never knew why Robin would lay and egg seemed so random and weird Just this winter, walking down hallway at work finally clicked into place: Robins are birds. Birds lay eggs. Yep. Sharp tack over here.

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.

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.

When People Realized Their Kid Was Dumb

We can't totally blame kids for being weird and dumb, but we can at least laugh at the stupid things they do, as well as the dumb things we did when we were kids. Strange and interesting things will come from the mind of a child who doesn't exactly know how the world works. They're constantly proving that they're stupid and weird.

Stupid Ways People Tried to Solve Escape Rooms

People are really bad at escaping from escape rooms. They'll totally miss obvious clues, disregard warnings to not break things, and even bring in their own tools to escape more effectively. One wonders why you'd deliberately sabotage your own experience you've paid money to have, but sometimes you just have to let people do dumb things.

Stupid Moments That Prove How Kids are Weird and Dumb

Kids are pretty dumb and easy to trick. Even if no one is trying to make them look dumb, they do a fantastic job of looking stupid all on their own. It's not exactly their fault, I mean, they're completely new here. They basically were in fact, born yesterday. So while kids are dumb and weird, they're sort of allowed to be that way.

Moments of kids being strange, funny and stupid.

Dumb Mistranslated Tattoos and Shirts that People Witnessed

In this wide world, we see a lot of hilarious translations and translation fails. Languages are complex and hard to understand completely. These frustratingly interesting observations on language and silly literal translations are a good example of that. This can come to a head when overzealous tourists try to get a tattoo in not only a language they don't understand, but in characters that are also completely foreign to them. Case in point, you don't want to misstep and end up as the "goldfish man"

Hotel GM Ejects Terrible Customers for Their Nonsense

Getting pushed around at your job by awful customers is one of the worst parts of any customer-facing job. That's why it's so damn satisfying to see your boss actually stand up for you and deliver a finishing blow. Some bosses are incompetent, but more sympathetic ones can save your skin.

Manager Doesn't Know What A Computer Is, Throws Away Forty of Them

People have a pretty abysmal knowledge of computers, but almost never so bad that they try to have them removed from their office. IT people have to be very patient when a customer's computer won't work. Sometimes people don't know what a power button is. We don't envy people who have to deal with this level of ignorance on a daily basis.

Pickup Lines That Actually Worked For People

When it comes to pickup lines, it helps to be creative, but the key thing is gonna be "does this person actually think I'm attractive?" Almost no one is gonna respond to some overused hack "did you fall from heaven" line so it helps to be in the moment. Here are lines that worked for men and women. And for some field tests, here are some tinder wins and fails that ended in heartbreak and puns.

Stupid Design Screw-Ups of The Human Body

The human body is an amazing thing. It can heal itself, think really good, and it's one of the most persistent biological machines out there. Seriously, we run down our prey not with speed but with sheer willpower. That said, there are some definite design flaws in the human body that have caused a lot of us some major problems. The fact that one trip can send you to the hospital, or that choking is a thing. Anyway, here are some flaws people pointed out, as well as some possible improvements.
