Wild Things Students Did To Make Themselves Legends

There are a few reasons students become legendary. Sometimes it was a prank or wild thing that that student did and got away with. Sometimes it was a moment of defiance against some stupid school rule. Some of these are memorable because they're straight up dumb, but you be the judge. No one heard from us that it's a good idea to hide 30 open jars of mayo in the vents before leaving for summer. For some extra shenanigans, here are some mad lads who made the world their big briny oyster.

The Weirdest Colors Paint Store Employees Had To Match

Employees have to deal with a lot of ridiculous customer demands that make work frustrating, but sometimes people just want something really weird. Paint and hardware stores specifically will have people walking in nonstop with random objects whose color struck them as something they would want all over their walls for the foreseeable future. This extends to soap, dirt, melons and body parts.

Teen Driver Forces Parents Hand On Stupid Rule, Actually Wins

It sucks to find yourself on the receiving end of a stupid rule, especially when it's an overzealous parenting decision. It's rare, but sometimes teens find a way to turn the tables, like this kid who rented out his stepmom's house after giving away his PS4. At least the parents ended up admitting defeat. When people can't see reason, it forces others to take stock of the power they have over a situation, like this dude who fought back when a store owner wouldn't change his phone number.

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.

Employee Arrives Late, Cool Boss Pulls Fire/Hire Switcheroo

After this employee came in late, their boss decided to use the minor infraction as an opportunity to give them a raise in the most convoluted, yet effective way possible. There are so many bad bosses out there, like this boss who said employee computers couldn't idle, or this boss who tried to take priority over the army. But at the end of the day, it's the cool and competent bosses who we remember the most, like this boss who used an eye gag to remove problem customers.

People Who Proved They Weren't The Dumb One

More often than not, the more ready someone is to call someone else an idiot, the higher chance they themselves are the true moron. People will double down and say some wildly dumb things, but rarely do we get to prove these people wrong. It's at least a little nice to challenge the absurd things people say in complete seriousness.

Guy Teaches A Lesson To Handicap Spot Hog

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.

Things People Did Before They Were Cool

Almost everyone has a story of seeing some now-legendary band for 5 bucks, or can claim to be the first person to invent a now-popular sandwich. If anything it's the people who got into bitcoin early on accident that we all envy the most. At least we can all be forward thinkers in our own minds. It's fun to be on the leading edge of good things before they get ruined by money and popularity, but there's just as much a chance that a huge trend will quickly become something no one talks about anymore.

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.

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.

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.
