Student Corrects Teacher, Teacher Can't Handle It

While it is a teacher's responsibility to know things, they're still human and are capable of getting those things wrong. It's when a teacher says something wrong and doesn't own up to it when things get weird. What's the value in lying to kids just so that you can maintain a false sense of authority? Sometimes teachers don't give their students enough credit, like this tumblr thread about a teacher underestimating their students for a social experiment. With the veritable weirdness some educators display, luckily there are also teachers who pulled total bro moves.

Vegan Employee Suggests Coworker Eat Burger Outside

Being basically cooperative, we don't want to step on people's toes. In this case there's an employee eating a burger in a designated eating space, and their coworker happens to not like that. Compromise is important, but it's also important that people agree on what "compromise" means. Prickly attitudes transcend dietary preference, like this entitled uncle who demanded a meat meal at a vegan wedding.

Simple Questions That Reveal A Lot About People

Asking questions is how we get to know each other, and some totally innocuous questions have a way of revealing more about people than you'd think. Sometimes they're good for revealing red flags during job interviews or getting to the bottom of an awkward and bad first date. Also, definitely make sure anyone in your social circle is on the right side of the shopping cart theory of morality.
