Entitled Folks and Their Astounding Boldness

It's absurd, the things entitled people will demand. Most people have a basically realistic view of the things one should expect another person to go out of the way to do for them, but there are a select few who have no idea. Influencers will leave bad reviews for restaurants that don't give them free food. People will post a job listing for a nanny position and end up not actually paying any money. Customers will get mad that the company they buy stuff from also gives some of their product to charity. It's a wild world out there full of entitled people with their absurd audacity.

Company Won't Accept Mortgage Payments, Tells Customer They've Defaulted

There's a type of business that makes itself deliberately hard to navigate just so they can charge weird fees. Some companies will even hide or delay just how much interest they've charged just to bully customers into paying for late fees they didn't even know existed. Navigating the corporate landscape as one person can be an absolute nightmare, but after dealing with the absurd process of paying their own mortgage, this person realized they didn't have to put up with the nonsense. For another tale of financial absurdity, here's a guy who got hounded for a trivial debt and ended up mailing them a dime.

Misfortune Monday: The World Keeps On Turnin'

The world is a merciless place filled with chaos and misfortune of all stripes. It's almost not even worth it thinking about what could go wrong, just because so much can go wrong. Worried your dog will escape your fence? Well he's already chewed up your shoes. Afraid your car will get towed in that iffy spot? Well it's been crushed by a tree. It's clear that in life, things just keep happening and we only have a little bit of control over the menagerie of misfortune that might befall us.

Deceptive Products Designed By Real Jerkwads

"Passing the savings" on to the consumer is great and all, but what really matters is that you're passing the actual product to the consumer. Everyone has had a moment with lying packaging, trick containers and misleading and awful products that ended up being more cardboard and air than anything else. The lengths some manipulative and terrible products will go to is something that feels like it should only exist in cartoons.

The Most Dangerous Things People Have Eaten

We've all heard stories about stuff like poisonous blowfish, but when you really think about it, there's a surprising number of foods that can kill you. It's not just poisonous foods, but also strange and specific allergies, extremely dodgy and less than hygienically stuff, or just something you might just choke on. There's a wide world of dangerous food out there, and many of us have found ourselves on the wrong end of the spoon. People will also eat the worst things, simply out of politeness.

The Worst Things People Ate Out of Politeness

As generally decent people, we pride ourselves on displaying a dizzying amount of decorum as houseguests. We will gladly sit at a great aunt's table and swill cloyingly sweet tea just to smile and glowingly lie through our rapidly decaying teeth over how grateful we are for the privilege. We will laboriously swallow dry biscuits and tamp them down with stalks of celery like we're muskets loading themselves. Sure, we'd rather not, but that social contract is nigh unbreakable. We'd much rather spend an entire night uncomfortable than say an unkind word about a mother-in-law's dismally soggy quiche. Go us and our willingness to tolerate these cursed food abominations. The things people eat to be polite are some of the worst foods people have eaten. Pour one out for those of us who wish we could pour this lukewarm soup into the waste basket.

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.

Horrible Coworkers People Had to Endure

Work comes with a distinct set of expectations. As long as people are basically cooperative and don't get on each other's nerves, everyone can walk away happy. But sometimes a person's explosive personality, annoying habits, or smell can get in the way of that. Particularly bad coworkers will even steal lunches or use sonograms to trick their boyfriend.

Harsh Moments of Technological Gore

There are two kinds of device owners, people who revere their laptops like a hollow Easter bunny made of flammable glass, and the other ones. The ones who store pieces of bologna in disk trays and drill speed holes in their keyboards, or people like this lady who claimed her computer was losing files, but was actually just deleting them. So naturally, tech support has to face some waking nightmares.

Strange and Cursed Images To Feel Weird About

Cursed Images are a good reminder of how lost and repulsed we can be by random images with zero context. You could call it something like a sensory response to cognitive estrangement. You could also call it "being disgusted by seeing a bowl of pennies filled with milk." Little of column A, a lot of column B.

People's "Man, I Gotta Get Outta Here" Moments

Maybe it's a 6th sense, maybe it's sheer panic, maybe it's using your eyes to see an angry pig barreling at you like you're made of slop. There are moments in our lives where we know that the right thing to do is just leave and never come back. There are also those moments where a particular place beats us down to the point where we say "screw this, I'm out.' There are moments we just know when it's the time to nope on out.

Cursed Foods That are Uncomfortable to Look At

In some cases, a closeup of just about any pot of slime is gonna look bad, but then there are those cursed foods from Lucifer's larder that are so creatively horrible that they're just hard to look at. Props on people for trying something new, but dear god some of this food was created in the underworld's kitchen.

Twitter Thread: Old Wax Figures are Some Prime Nightmare Fuel

Wyatt Duncan takes us on a journey of really not great wax figures that are presumably somewhere right now, moldering away in people's basements and love dungeons. Judging by how many creepy wax figures we've seen, it must be really hard to do this correctly. For some insight on why these are so creepy, here's a tumblr thread on the uncanny valley aspects of why unrealistic animation is less unsettling than realistic animation

Twitter thread on creepy old wax figures | Wyatt Dunkin @WyattDuncan More than ten years ago Hollywood Wax Museum held an online auction and sold off hundreds life sized wax figures. These figures were auctioned thousands and thousands dollars. This is thread most cursed figures were sold this auction. SEINFELD BACK FUTURE

Entitled People With Their Childish Demands

Nothing stirs the blood and busts out a wicked riff on the heartstrings quite like people who make insane demands of people while displaying absolutely no self reflection. Entitled people and their absurd audacity will grift strangers, talk mad trash and do it all as if they're still in the right. It's kind of incredible.

Products That Are Too Marked Up For Their Own Good

Just about everything is a little bit of a racket. Hell, if everything was sold at cost, there'd be no reason for anyone to run a business. It's when businesses use brand sway and deceitful practices to drive insane markups that things start to seem unfair and hairy. Even if you are spending a lot on movie theater sodas and designer eyeglasses, at least you're not following these bits of the dumbest financial advice people have gotten. On the other side of it, here are reckless uses of money that people didn't regret at all.

The Worst Business Practices People Have Seen

Interacting with a dysfunctional institution is an interesting thing. To see something so big not work correctly is a sight to behold. Whether it's working at a place that inspires a "screw this i'm out" moment, or somewhere that's so bad up front that you get a real red flag interview, or just being a customer at a place so unprofessional it's shocking, we can pretty safely assume that it's better to spend your time in businesses that actually function.
