Dad Re-Homes Son's Fifth Pet Hermit Crab

This dad asked the people of Reddit's AITA community whether or not he was in the wrong for taking the initiative and re-homing his son's fifth pet hermit crab. The whole idea of enabling a kid to have "practice pets" that are still very much so alive beings, is kind of twisted. On top of that, the decision to give the kid hermit crabs for his practice pet was misinformed and an ongoing lapse in judgement as well. Hermit crabs are very high maintenance, picky creatures that can also live upwards of 30 years!

Moments That Show How Dumb and Strange Kids Are

It's no question that kids are stupid and weird. They're horrible liars, they don't know how to read, they lack basic coordination skills and a lot of them look like they've never worked a day in their life. From sharpie-ing the dog to attempting to eat wax fruit, there's more than enough proof that kids are stupid and weird.

Guy's Roommate Enforces Weird Rules, He Moves Out Mid-Lease

This guy asked folks on Reddit whether or not he was in the wrong for stranding his roommate with full rent, because he simply couldn't take any more of his roommate's strange rules. The gist of it is that his roommate's girlfriend moved in with them. Said girlfriend seems to have suffered some kind of trauma in the past, and can't stand being caught alone with the guy when her boyfriend isn't around. Considering the uniquely tough time that we're all living through, and how many folks are forced to be at home most of the time, this created quite the conundrum. So, most folks agreed the guy really didn't do anything wrong.

At least the cats got to have a magical day playing with all of those crickets. That being said, this dad learned a valuable lesson in not making assumptions about cricket deliveries. As one can imagine, when those little critters break free, it is very hard to round them back up again.
