Dad Orders Box Of Crickets, Wrongly Assumes They're Sealed Off

This story about a dad who ordered a box of crickets for the family's pet lizard, never gets old. Apparently, dad assumed that the crickets arrived in a box, sealed off, and not susceptible to breaking free to get absolutely everywhere. Dad was very wrong. His assumption resulted in just the kind of chaos that folks can get a kick out of. I mean, at least the cats experienced a dreamy day of wonderful play.

Insanely Demanding Woman Wants Person to Watch Her Diabetic Dog for Cheap

We can't think of a worse pet sitting situation out there. This lady doesn't even promise the small amount of money she offers, deliberately withholds information about the dog's condition until after the sitter would have agreed, and then calls her weak for not wanting to totally derail her life for a hundred bucks. Absolutely phenomenal. We've seen people make insane lists of rules before, like this bride's friend who made a list for a bachelorette party.
