'The entire house went silent': Family members guilt trip a couple into having kids, so they clap back in a way that shuts down the conversation for good

For childfree couples, the holiday season is usually the time of year you get chased around by all of your aunties and older cousins, pestering you about your life choices, your aging physique, and your inability to (so far) provide your bloodline with an heir. What is it, the 1700's? Is that all we're good for?

'My coworkers are saying I'm cold for not helping her out': Woman refuses to babysit colleague's 4 kids during her PTO, faces backlash in the office

We often talk about work-life balance these days, with many folks managing to keep their professional and personal lives completely separate, meaning no work at home (rip remote workers). However, what happens when a personal issue becomes a work issue, too? That's the situation the OP found herself in. OP has been working at her company for a while now, and there's this colleague who seems to harbor some envy. We will call her Karen.

'That's 14 people in a small kitchen': Landlord brings young children to showings at the home of another couple with youngsters

'That's 14 people in a small kitchen': Landlord brings young children to apartment showings at the home of another couple with youngsters, tenants complain she's being 'very unprofessional'

How would you feel if you knew your landlord was bringing a baby and a toddler to your place while she showed it to prospective tenants? I think most people would protest that, yet one landlord thinks she's actually perfectly fine bringing the kiddos along. As a parent, you love your kid more than anything else, and you think everything they do is cute and sweet and perfect. Even though you're head over heels in love with them, not everyone is as enamored with your little ones' antics. Parents…

'I got a detention for pretending to be a Pokemon': 25+ Kids who were reprimanded for the silliest reasons

We should really just let kids be kids . You only get so long to have a carefree childhood. As a child, you avoid adult responsibilities and can spend all day either playing or at school (and then playing once school lets out). That's your time to frolic in the grass, make up games, play on the playground, and run around with your friends. Knowing that you only get to be a child once, some teachers and parents are still crazy strict with their little ones. People who answered the question poste…

'Don't you have to dodge tiny stars on your way to the moon?': 30+ Smarty-pants people who thought they knew everything, but were actually comically misinformed

Lots of people are utterly convinced they're geniuses , but when you talk to them for more than a few minutes, you can tell the real truth about them. Most people you talk to are just normal, average people, and they usually have interesting lives. However, it seems like every party or social event has at least one person that is the know-it-all . They think they're smarter than everyone else in the room, and they can't help but brag about it. At a recent party, a stranger walked into the event…

'He tried to fight... [so] I got security involved': Entitled parents at a metal concert bully the crowd into letting their small children squeeze to the front; woman puts the dad in his place

Metal concerts are intense. For anyone who loves accidental punches to the face, getting their toes stomped, and eating the floor before having a 250lbs man help them back to their feet knows that a mosh pit is not a place for the weak. And it's certainly no place for a small child.

'I can't be the only one who thinks it's crazy for my husband to buy his ex a house': Woman won't let her husband buy a house for his ex-wife; family makes her out to be the bad guy

What do you think about this situation? So, a married couple is living together and expecting a baby together. Her husband was previously married with kids until he divorced his ex-wife after she cheated on him. The husband let his ex and kids stay in their fully paid-off home, and he moved out. Fast forward a bit, and the ex loses the house and is left with no money (we're still a little confused about how that happened). She's now in an apartment. The OP's husband wants to buy her another hou…

'No real man wants to disappoint their mom': Manager lets a 22 year old employee rush home during his shift to hide contraband from his mommy in a wholesome act of understanding

Nobody wants to disappoint their parents– especially their mothers. In fact, it was ingrained deep into our psyche at an early age that when our parents got mad at us, that was sort of okay, but if they were disappointed in our rebellious behavior, there was no greater pain on Earth. Obviously as we all grew up and moved out of the house, we became accustomed to our own illicit activities, but mom doesn't need to know what we do with our spare time or what vices we hide under our pillows.

'I don't want my server to have a sense of humor': Waitress faces online backlash for her jokey sense of humor with customers

This waitress wanted to share a story about a family interaction at her job, but commenters took the customers' side! The OP has a few memorably cringe lines. If a waiter ever handed me water and in the same breath told me about how it had “came out of the dinosaurs years ago. [It's] just filtered super well," I'd hesitate to eat there. What a weird thing to say about a fresh beverage! Perhaps one of the worst ways to make water sound appetizing is to remind the customer of how water filtration…

'Your daughter was baiting seagulls into the playground with gummy worms': 25+ Times kids were completely hilarious without even trying

Kids are so funny , it's no wonder they're keeping their parents in stitches. Kids just do and say lots of wild things. They're new here, they're still learning, and they don't often have a filter. Therefore, they're often hilarious, just saying and doing things that adults wouldn't dare to utter. These people shared their funniest stories from the children around them, from their own kids, to siblings, to grandkids . Other shared stories from their own childhoods.

'Foolish, FOOLISH man': Husband complains his wife should have dinner ready because she does nothing all day, she maliciously complies and refuses to clean anything

You would think most of us would know at this point that being the primary “breadwinner” in a family does not mean you are entitled to make a fuss when dinner is not on the table upon your return home from work. It's 2023, people! We should have more realistic expectations of all parties in a family dynamic, and therefore, we should have equal respect for the financial and emotional contributions that all parties make. Unfortunately, these kinds of expectations do not gradually fizzle from one…

'I get a knock on the door. It's the neighbor's mom...holding a receipt': Entitled parent insists neighbor pay for bake sale, neighbor agrees and brings receipts

Sometimes on a warm afternoon, the local kids will hold a bake sale . Maybe in your neighborhood they sell lemonade and chocolate chip cookies, and in others, kids sell baked goods , like breads or slices of bundt cakes. Of course, lemonade is a bit easier to make than baked goods. So parents might volunteer help out with that part. It's really sweet to see kids get excited about being little businesspeople for a day as they sit outside and play store keeper. Plus, if you live in a bustling are…

'I didn't mean to say it out loud, but COME ON': Teenager gets in trouble for honest reaction to news that her sister is pregnant again

Sometimes, we say things we absolutely shouldn't but we are human, and we just can't help ourselves. In a few of these instances, you may be able to argue your way out of trouble, but if you've hurt someone's feelings (especially those of a close family member), good luck trying to talk yourself out of it. In this story , we have a teenager whose older sister has six children. Now, six is a lot, especially if you have to frequently rely on the help of your mother and sister because of all that…

'Three-day suspension if anyone sang Gwen Stefani's "Sweet Escape"': 30+ Rules that schools and workplaces insisted on

'Three-day suspension if anyone sang Gwen Stefani's "Sweet Escape"': 30+ Foolish rules that schools and workplaces insisted on

Rules are in place for a reason. That's what administrators will tell you. But sometimes rules are created that end up antagonizing everybody. When I was in high school, there was an inordinate amount of fighting. It was commonplace to witness at least one or two student fights per day. Not a lunch period went by without a scuffle. The school responded to this by implementing two rules. One was a zero tolerance policy, so if your bully hit you, the two of you would both get suspended, even if y…
