For some more mistakes here are some classic facepalm moments of dumbness.

Inappropriate Times People Laughed Too Hard

Funerals, weddings, classrooms and plays are all places where the social contract demands silence. But sometimes something happens. Sometimes the speaker says something unexpected. Maybe you're just ready to party. To be fair, people say absurd things in complete seriousness all the time, and we can't expect things to always go as planned.

Boss's New "Take Prank Callers Seriously" Policy Backfires

Pizza delivery is one of the industries that has seen a few changes since the pandemic started, but the customers are the same people as always, so what can you do. The manager at this pizza place decided to respond to a rise in prank calls in probably the wrong way. For more pizza stuff, here are the many strange customers one pizza deliverer met.

Modern life has a lot of institutionalized authority and expectations. We're so caught up with our own lives, work and relationships that sometimes we forget that we can just choose to not comply with society's expectations. It's almost always a bad idea to tell off your boss or get revenge on a lying customer, but there are some people who do not give a rip.

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.

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.

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.
