There's no denying the fact that we love our dad jokes here. What we might love even more than the typical dad joke is when we get to see a daughter overwhelm her dad with pride over her successful telling of a dad joke herself. Dad pretty much looks like he's never been more proud of something before in his life.

Driver Jams Seatbelt In Car Door, Doesn't Realize Car Door Is Locked

Honestly, the embarrassment should fall on the mechanics a bit too. It seems like most everyone involved in the hilarious conundrum of a car door that got jammed up with a seatbelt was confused. Our brains are funny like that though. Sometimes we get so caught up in aggressively trying to figure out the solution to a problem that we end up overlooking the glaringly obvious.

The Worst Business Practices People Have Seen

Interacting with a dysfunctional institution is an interesting thing. To see something so big not work correctly is a sight to behold. Whether it's working at a place that inspires a "screw this i'm out" moment, or somewhere that's so bad up front that you get a real red flag interview, or just being a customer at a place so unprofessional it's shocking, we can pretty safely assume that it's better to spend your time in businesses that actually function.

Guy Who Didn't Work at Walmart Fired by Walmart Manager

This random dude wearing a blue shirt had a run-in with a manager who was eager to fire someone she didn't even recognize. This one's kind of the opposite of this chef who was hired by a law firm just to foil the security guard. Employees of huge retail chains have to put up with some strange problems at work, like this guy who got hired and through a series of mistakes, never did anything but still stayed employed for months

Karen Demands Stranger Work Shift For Store They Don't Work At

Nothing quite like getting a call from an angry Karen who you've never crossed paths with, who proceeds to bombard you with a request to turn up to work a shift for a store that you simply don't work for. Seriously, Karen. Pull it together and leave the good people of this world that are just going about their daily business alone. For another solid tale of a Karen misunderstanding check out this story about a Karen assuming that a customer worked at the liquor store she was at. Absolutely absurd and discouragingly clueless.

Company Won't Replace One Computer, Wastes Thousands of Dollars

There are few companies where management actually knows what's going on. This person had a nearly unusable computer that doubled as a server, and since no one wanted to actually do anything about it, the company felt the pain for the next long while. Weird how some stuff just slips through the cracks. In an opposite but similar vein, here's a guy who improved company efficiency but had that disbanded by management. For an IT triumph, here's a time when management illegally banned overtime pay but IT got it all back.

Entitled Folks with Their Outlandish Demands

Every day it becomes more apparent that some folks live in a fantasy land where they can just flout the conventions of decency and demand free stuff. Entitled people with their absurd audacity will expect people to work for them for free, try to abuse the trust of strangers, and throw tantrums when they don't get what they want. There's no good way to deal with entitled people and their laughable boldness.

Tumblr Uncovers the Nine Types of Movie Posters

We know that big movie studios stick to classic money making formulas, and that can lead to bland, predictable movies. But it looks like it's way worse when it comes to advertising for those movies. It's interesting, but a little disheartening seeing how predictable human behavior is, especially when it comes to entertainment. It's like they said, you can't unsee it. If anyone thought this was enough, Tumblr went hard analyzing The Incredibles to oblivion. Tumblr has a thing for analyzing movies, like this hyper analysis of Davy Jones in Pirates of the Caribbean. Here's a tumblr user who ranked the marvel movies based on how many trains were in them, and here's tumblr's dicussion of the visual affects of Jurassic Park.
