Mailman Won't Deliver Packages, Gets Rightful Comeuppance

This isn't the first time we've encountered a story involving a villainous character who couldn't be pushed to do their job correctly, and we strongly doubt it'll be the last time. It was only a matter of time before this mailman went on to get his rightful comeuppance.

Karen Gets Mad At Tech Support Because Her Computer Has A Desktop

Man oh man, our hearts really go out to the poor people that are working tech support and having to deal with the wildly, hopelessly entitled human beings in this world. In this case, it sounds like Karen was very, very lost. Basically, she got all enraged over her computer literally having a desktop function. Like, what do you even do with that? If you're looking for another juicy tale from the world of tech support check out the time that a client dragged out a ticket for days, and never realized that their device just wasn't plugged in

Tumblr Post: Humans Live In A Mildly Magical World

Yeah, so those crazy things like the placebo effect that are a part of our daily existence are actually pretty much magic in action. It's truly wild that we can alter our very state of existence just by believing that something will make us feel a certain way. It's pretty humorous that we totally overlook the magical aspects of life. Like, we might as well be wizards.

Amazing Pet Finder Names That Definitely Kind of Work

With so many animals being pushed into the system, you can only name incoming cats "Snowball" so many times before you get bored and start using a random word generator. It seems like they've even freed themselves from conventional names and just started going for parts of speech and infomercial personalities. That said, even if their name is JG Wentworth, these cats are probably all better pets than Prancer, the most irredeemable dog.

I mean, let's be real. There's something about this version that's honestly more appealing. It could be the steady procession of fails in a play that was seemingly destined for doom from its very onset.

Man oh man, just imagine what must've been going through this kid's head after he landed that wildly impressive trick. To be able to have that moment with Tony Hawk must've lighted his heart right on up.

Um, this guy has nerves of literal steel. The way he handles losing his literal engine pretty much escapes what one would think is possible in terms of keeping cool under the awful weight of impending physical doom. Clearly, the guy is going to make a great pilot one day.

25 Incompetent Moments of "Unique" Construction and Installation

Can it even be called a "living" room if there's no toilet in there? "Not my job" moments surround us, thanks to our tendency to not want to do our jobs correctly. Sure, that means a lot of way-too-low ceiling fans and stop signs that say "go" but do you think you could do better? Well you probably could. Thanks to these moments of professional inadequacy we can all feel like we'd do a better job.

People's Dumbest "I Don't Need A Doctor" Moments

Unfortunately, the internet breeds a whole lot of aggressive moments of pure and utterly profound ignorance. Many of us can fall prey to those times when we look to the internet and its collection of definitely unqualified "medical professionals" to provide advice on issues that are definitely in need of medical attention. Maybe these stories will make you feel a bit better about your own mindless moments in the realm of needing/not needing medical advice.

Twitter Thread: The Appalachians Are Older Than Most Things

Like this tumblr thread on the age of the Appalachians says, those mountains are older than bones. Not individual bones, but like the advent of bones. Alex Petrovnia gets into the geological wonder of a mountain range that spans continents and eras. It's weird how sometimes the most mundane things can be extremely interesting, like this thread on lobsters orthe electric story on the naming of Triscuits.

The Most Disrespectful Houseguests People Have Had

Every person's house is a castle, and sometimes castles get put under siege. Whether it's the neighbor's horrible kid, a random dude who got in during a party, or a brother-in-law who needs to stay for one night for six months, we've all had moments that made us wonder "why do I ever let people in here." The bar never seems to hit rock bottom when it comes to the worst houseguests people have experienced. Sometimes distance isn't even enough in the case of people's worst neighbors.

Husband Cheaps Out On Hotel Room, Doesn't Tell Wife, Drama Ensues

So, apparently there are some folks out there that define the difference of an extra $40 to be worthy of being deemed "extortionate." Clearly, this husband didn't account for the fact that the person he was giving an earful to on the phone would feel compelled to leave a reminder note about their particularly unpleasant encounter. Suffice to say, when the truth was revealed to his wife, it certainly ended up stinging him a bit.

Unreasonable Vegan Employee Refuses To Deliver Food With Meat In It

Some companies can be unreasonable, and there are some occupations out there people are sure no one enjoys. But when you refuse to do the job you agreed to do, and push the responsibility onto your coworkers, there become fewer and fewer questions about who's being impossible. It's not even a dietary restriction thing, it's a having coworkers thing. For some "intriguing" dietary stories, here's an uncle who demanded a meat meal at a vegan wedding and an irrational neighbor who demanded nutless baklava.

Misfortune Monday: That's How It Goes

Sometimes our lives feel like magnets for goofs, blunders, mistakes and errors. But luckily that's just sometimes. Unless of course you're the cause of all the spilled eggs, forklift crashes and exploded toilets in your life. Then we can't help you. But odds are, life is usually fine except for the odd misfortunate moments that intercept our usually okay lives. If there's ever a chance to look for some perspective it's on non-sequential but semi-regular Misfortune Mondays.

The reality is that all of us have a hard time completing our jobs successfully at one point or another. We're only human, after all. Fail is always lurking right around the corner. You just hope that your moment of forgetfulness and the failure that results doesn't end up looking like a whole branch of a bank being left open for any criminal to cruise in and take a crack at cracking open that safe. Of course this is the internet, and people are always searching for new ways to drive their clout up. Maybe this is staged.
