Yet somehow these people all end up naming their kid some variation of the same thing, not realizing it until their kid is one of dozens of “Theo”s in their class when they sta…

Each year, millions of cats and dogs get adopted out, and someone at the shelters will have to name them. According to Forbes, the number of pups who got their fur-ever home in the US last year was 1.5 million.

Now, there aren't millions of pigs, lizards, rabbits, or birds sitting in the shelters, but a few of them always come through these shelters' doors, too! A…

'There is no way': Pokemon inspired baby-names start dispute between friend and expectant mother

A little bit of fandom-inspired baby naming has caused a rift in this friend group. In the past, some parents would test out potential baby names by yelling them out the front door a few times. (Parents used to call their kids home for dinner while the kids were out in the neighborhood playing with friends). If you felt weird shouting the name out the door, you'd know that wasn't the right moniker for your baby. The modern-day equivalent might include a few more stop-gaps. You should absolutely…

'I got fed up with her': Coworker keeps getting employee's name wrong on purpose, employee claps back

Pronouncing someone's name incorrectly can be an honest mistake unless it's someone you have been working with closely five days a week for the past year. In the beginning, it's totally excusable, but after a while, it becomes clear that this is no accident. This is someone who is actively seeking to get your name wrong under the guise of having “difficulty” with it. Furthermore, Saoirse is not that uncommon. Has this coworker even heard of Saoirse Ronan? Not only does she come across as unkind…

'I’m sorry what was your name again?': Woman gets petty after acquaintance keeps conveniently 'forgetting' her but remembering woman's husband

It's perfectly normal to forget someone's name the second or third time you run into them socially, but this lady seemed to be doing it on purpose. Not only did she always make a point about not remembering the Redditor's name, but she seemed perfectly capable of remembering OP's husband. It's the kind of social interaction that seems fishy. If this lady only saw OP with her husband, why would she always make a point of remembering the husband and treating OP like she was invisible? While I hav…

Tattoos are so personal to the individual getting their skin adorned. Everyone knows that tattoos last forever, but it's a hard concept to fathom until you actually get the tattoo. Depending on where you get it, you'll either 1) look at it every day, so you'd better love it! or 2) never look at it if it's on your back or legs, and you'll kind of forget you have it at times. Regardless, you do have that art work forever, and even if you can't see it, other people probably can. Along with your ha…
