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.

It's everyone's nightmare that some foreign object will find itself in their path while speeding down the freeway, and it's a common enough occurrence that fears of it happening are completely founded. This guy says that the tire was rolled onto the freeway by some guy, which is just about the stupidest cause for any serious accident. Luckily he was able to walk away from it.

Absurdly Overpriced Stuff People Have Seen

We all know someone who, against better judgement, will buy into the complete BS of an expensive product, and assume that the high price tag is a legitimate marker of quality. It's sad to see, but when someone spends literally any money on a rock in a bag, that's kind of on them. Here are some products that are getting more expensive and somehow worse, as well as some signs someone is trying way to hard to look rich.

Living in a remote place is a great way to not have access to fresh fruits and vegetables, and this is wild. Twitter user KataraPiujuq showed some of the crazy high prices for fruit and vegetables, and how it's a bit of an issue.

Twitter Thread: The Wildly Creepy Junk Kids Say

There are many clear signs that kids are weird and stupid, but sometimes that weirdness manifests itself as intense creepiness. Being  impressionable and not really understanding the world too good, kids have extremely vivid imaginations and sometimes just say things. Things about faces in the walls and dead people watching them. The kind of things you really hope are untrue.

Entitled People and Their Goofy Demands

It's hard to tell what's going on in the head of an entitled person who thinks that it's okay to demand someone work for them for free. Entitled folks can come in all stripes, from godawful customers to absurd landlords to wacked out potential bosses. There's just a type of person out there who are convinced that their incredible demands are reasonable.

The Most Absurdly Expensive Things People Witnessed

After a certain point, price doesn't denote quality or value as much as it just becomes the principle of buying an outrageously overpriced thing. Does a 30,000 dollar melon taste 29,995 dollars better than a 5 dollar melon? We don't know, we haven't tried one. But probably not. For out of touch rich people, spending money seems to become a sort of game, and for any reasonable bystander it's a jaw-dropping game to watch.

Tattoo Artist Deals With Totally Feral Karen

Karens just keep bursting into tattoo shops like this male Karen who didn't believe this tattoo shop owner and get a reckoning. It's a bummer to have to deal with people who try to get vengeance when they can't get a deal they wanted, but that's a part of life. Why does it have to be a part of life? Just ask the Karens like this one who got booted by an IT employee.

The Arecibo radio telescope in Puerto Rico collapsed and shattered in a disheartening moment for astrophysicists everywhere. The main cables holding up the massive 900 ton receiver failed and the whole thing collapsed into the Gregorian dome. Groups are focusing on getting funds from the U.S. Congress to rebuild the observatory.

Wild and Dumb Stuff Teachers Confiscated

Sometimes it was a normal thing that a teacher mistook for something else. Other times it was a living thing. Sometimes weapons, and other times just weird. It's strange to be an adult and realize how schools are just pure chaos with adults trying their best (sometimes) to keep things sort of in order. Here are people sharing the drama that became their school's "incident".

Spooky Signs that Say a lot with their Creepiness

Scary signs serve the valuable purpose of warning people of possible danger. They're not supposed to be nice or fun. That said, some spooky signs are way scarier and outright threatening than they need to be. Again, we're glad that people are telling us that snakes might come up the toilet, but sometimes a spooky sign is just too dang scary.
