Girl finds herself living with 4 other people in 2-bedroom apartment after being lied to by roommate, resulting in roommate moving out when she takes it too far: 'We're packed like sardines'

When someone lives away from their parents, the possibility of seeing them split into two options - Either they travel to see their parents or their parents travel to see them. Traveling to your parents is usually not a problem. You can stay in your childhood bedroom and feel comfortable in the space in which you grew up. But when your parents come to visit you, it can get quite… tricky, to say the least. The biggest problem of all, is the sleeping situation – Where will your parents stay? Will…

Mother mad at scientist husband for secretly naming their daughter after an insect: 'She said I had taken advantage of her trust'

Something is really bugging this couple, and it's the name of their daughter. Specifically, the fact that she was named after a genus of cicada without the wife's knowledge. See, the husband is an entomologist (insect scientist) and made a suggestion for their daughter's name when the pair had run into complications with the previous name they were interested in. The problem is that when the husband made the name suggestion, he did so while withholding the fact that the name was actually a genu…

'At the age of 11 I received a speeding ticket... on my bike': 20+ Nonsensical reasons people got in big trouble

I think everyone has at least one time they got in trouble for reasons that completely baffled them. As a kid, you put a lot of trust and faith in your teachers and parents . So when your favorite third-grade teacher suddenly punishes an 8-year-old you for doing something ordinary, it's quite confusing. It startles you and makes you question authority. Although the reasons make no sense to the kids involved, maybe the adults in the room are just having a bad day. Especially when the person is a…

Babysitter falls asleep on the job and fails to hear the baby crying, resulting in a dispute when the parents find out: ‘Hire a nanny next time’

Every parent needs a trusty babysitter they can leave their kids with from time to time. Whether you need them to watch your kids while you're at work, going out with friends, or simply in case of unexpected emergencies, it is always important to have someone you can count on. For many parents, that trusty babysitter is often a teenager who is looking for a way to make some money, and watching kids while they usually sleep seems like an easy way to do so. But it is crucial to remember that thos…

Step-mother gets an answer she wasn't prepared for when she asks 17-year-old if she's a suitable replacement for step-child's mother: 'She was never second best [...] because she was never in the running'

It's often said that you should never ask questions that you don't know the answer to. It should also probably be said that you should never insist on an answer to that question once the chance to give one has been politely declined. Doing so is just setting yourself up for a bad time when the person you're demanding an answer from gives you one that you really don't want to hear… and when things get sensitive, a confrontation is sure to follow. This step-mom insisted on placing herself on the…

'I can't wait to never see her again': Principal demands school teacher provide a doctor's note for 1 sick day despite being 17 days absent herself, teacher quits

'I can't wait to never see her again': Principal demands school teacher provide a doctor's note for 1 sick day despite being 17 days absent herself, teacher quits

Working as an educator is difficult. Rowdy kids, long hours, and meh pay all add to a common feeling of discontentment among teachers. They really aren't paid enough to deal with everything they're putting up with. One teacher described their experience with their new school principal who really had it out for them, for no apparent reason. It might be worth mentioning that the teacher works in special education, teaching kids who have learning disabilities… so it's sad that the principal's trea…

‘I won’t walk 3 miles, forget it': Teenager leaves brother stranded for 3 hours after his exam, pocketing the money their mother gave him to get home

Being a teenager is bad enough when you don't have a sibling who thinks everyone should bow down to them. And on that note, this story is about sibling rivalry at its finest. One 15-year-old uploaded screenshots of a baffling conversation he had with his condescending sister who left him stranded for 3 hours at school after an exam he had. Apparently, their kindhearted mother had given his sister some money to use to get an Uber for him once he'd finished his exam. The money was meant for that,…

28 Parenting Tweets to Share at the Dinner Table

Kids are something else. Imagine you're a parent (you probably are if you clicked on this post). It's 6:00 AM, and your kids are already battling each other outside their shared bathroom. They refuse to get ready together and lock one another out, causing chaos, as usual. You shuffle around, getting things ready, making breakfast, and occasionally pulling them apart. One kid hates their outfit, the other one hates you. It's just a typical morning. Their expressions are storm clouds of teenage r…

Gen X parents on blast after calling their teenaged son ‘entitled’ when he grumbles about earning $11.50/hour: 'That was my starting wage in 1984'

Do you remember your first job? You probably washed dishes at a restaurant, stocked shelves in the mall, or scooped ice cream from your local sweets shop. It wasn't glamorous, but every two weeks, your paycheck would come, which (as a teenager) meant that you were rolling in riches! Even if the bottom line on your paystub was only a couple hundred bucks, you felt like a king. Nowadays, a couple hundred bucks doesn't go very far does it?

‘Mom, am I adopted?’: Twin sisters take genetic test only to discover they share no DNA, parents refuse to admit that one of them is adopted

Siblings should always tease one another, that is pretty much the most basic rule in the siblings' rule book. One of the common ways to tease your younger siblings is by telling them they are actually adopted, and coming up with the most elaborate story for what happened with their actual birth parents, hiding their baby pictures, and sometimes even asking your parents to go along with it. The girl in this Reddit story discovered that her life is not far from being a big adoption prank, except…

‘Please don't tow my parents car': College tenants parents arrive to celebrate their graduation, landlord demands $200 for 1 hour parking

I can still remember that one landlord who was so stingy that it was almost remarkable he owned any land at all. The roof had been leaking for months, and one night it began cascading down the wall like a small waterfall. I called my perpetually absent landlord up but he never answered. Voicemail… great. He never did fix that roof and I ended up moving, but I can understand what having a cheap landlord is like. A couple of college students were living together throughout their semester, and the…

'Privacy isn't necessary': Top Mildly Infuriating Parenting Moments of the Week (May 16, 2024)

There is a specific dynamic that emerges when you spend time at your parents' place as an adult. You start to notice all the crazy house rules, patterns, and habits that make absolutely zero sense. However, no matter how many times you try to explain a more efficient way of doing something, there is nothing you can do to change their minds. Living with my parents during that time back in 2020 resulted in a clash of personalities that thankfully did not lead to complete and total combustion. Sti…

'Go home, mom': Family bands together to get even with grandma who used her spare key to enter their home without permission

Another day, another family drama. One person, who we'll call OP, shared an entertaining story about their upstairs neighbors who got even with a family member of theirs who took it one step too far. OP lived in an apartment complex with two-story buildings and shared outdoor stairwells. Their upstairs neighbors were seemingly calm, chill people to whom they said hello once in a while. One day, OP's peaceful reading session was shattered by a commotion - shouts, running, pure family hysteria. E…
