County Mower Shreds Dad's Shrubs, Dad Revenges With Rebar

This tale of pro revenge involving an inconsiderate county mower and a dad who wasn't going to put up with anyone's nonsense reminds us of another revenge involving a steel-enforced mailbox and a snowplow. The grin on dad's face must've spanned from cheek to cheek. Sounds like the county mower was ultimately unsuccessful with trying to get dad to cough up cash for those broken blades too. Talk about the icing on the cake.

Parents of Ugly Babies Share What That's Like

We knew kids were weird and stupid already, but for a decent amount of time they're also ugly too. It's true that none of us would look too great if we had soft heads that just got pushed through a human being like a play-dough fun factory, but it's kind of a toss-up how different people take it. They're not supposed to look great when they're fresh anyway. Life is weird like that. You're born into this world and it's just a matter of time before you start realizing all the illogical things your parents do.

Tired Mother Mistakes Girl For Employee, Learns Otherwise

Fortunately, this tale of a customer mistaking another customer for an employee has a happy ending. Normally, we come across frustrating tales of Karens and other entitled walks of life going out of their way to rudely demand things of customers that were minding their business, just trying to take care of their own shopping needs. Sometimes, those scenarios even end up escalating into situations where the confused customers still ask the other customers to help them out, as if they worked there. Pretty unreal. This story though just involves some good old fashioned tomfoolery and an overriding, welcomed sense of humor.
