An Imaginative Conversation On Getting Out Of Work

It doesn't even matter that this is pretty much guaranteed to be fake. The conversation itself is ridiculous and entertaining. Maybe, the best course of action is to just play dumb if you really, really need to get out of work. That goes without saying that it'd certainly be a risky move, and not particularly an advisable, definitely unethical life hack. Check out some more highly unadvisable life pro tips over here

Employee Gets Pet Fox, Big Stink Ensues, Boss Calls Her Out, She Complains

Something is awry in this scenario. Of course, people should be encouraged to embrace whatever pet they've chosen to add to their home. Even if it's something atypical like a pet fox. But if you decide to roll with the fox for your pet, it sounds like you've got to go the extra mile to ensure that you're not carrying around that fox's stink with you wherever you go. Unfortunately, this employee assumed a defensive stance when she was called out.

Dumbest Things People Were Paid To Do

Money can cause all kinds of trouble. There's something hardwired into the human DNA that reacts when there's money flying around, that can end up manifesting in people doing some truly dumb stuff. Especially if you find yourself in a place in life where you're hurting real bad for some extra change. Or, maybe you get particularly lucky like some of these folks and end up being paid to do absolutely nothing. That corporate money is just stupid money.

Monstrous Manager Snaps On Employee, Employee Claps Back

Sure, everyone has their off days, and sometimes people end up hitting breaking points where they just need a mental health day. That still doesn't excuse being a complete monster to another human being, who didn't do anything to you. It sounds like this manager had a whole lot of nasty business boiling underneath the surface. The reaction did absolutely not fit the "crime." Life happens. People are late. Plans are ever vulnerable to falling apart in a reality that by its very nature is completely spontaneous. Good on this employee for standing up for themselves. For some more manager drama check out this incompetent manager who suspended an employee, and then still expected them at their shift

Choosy Beggar Tries To Severely Lowball Wedding Caterer

On a strange level it's almost intriguing to witness what kinds of bullish displays of entitlement can present themselves when a wildly irrational choosy beggar is stirring up the pot. Just the way that a choosy beggar goes about rationalizing their lowballing behavior. It's something else, man. This particular choosy beggar was doomed from the very start. Good for the wedding caterer for not getting tripped up for a second, and standing their ground. For some more juicy content involving a wildly entitled human being, check out the time that an entitled customer demanded a salt-free burger, got just that, and pitched a fit

Client Drags Ticket Out For Days, Didn't Have Her Device Plugged In

Our hearts truly go out to the people in this world that are working tech support. By its very nature the standard tech support job unfortunately brings with it the inevitable series of impossibly testy and ignorant customers. It's honestly a wonder that some of these people are able to make it in this day and age with things being as technologically-infused as they are. It sounds like this particular client wasted people's time to no end, and couldn't have cared less about it. For another ridiculous tech support tale check out the time that a customer believed that the internet literally runs on magic

Man Ignores Fact That Girlfriend Skips Outings Because Of Budget, Asks If He's In The Wrong

The fact that this poor girl worked an extra job just to try to keep up with an affluence and inconsiderate family is just a tad bit heart breaking. On top of that, it sounds like this guy is just about as clueless as they come. Based off what he shared regarding his own financial situation, it doesn't seem beyond reason to suggest that he could've helped her out a bit. But on, instead it was just pure confusion on his part over why she wasn't joining the various outings. Um, maybe because the money was tight. 

Man doesn't notice that his girlfriend skips out on outings because she's too broke to join.

Wife Announces Pregnancy, Husband Assumes It's A Joke, Cringe Ensues

It sounds like this guy's wife was quite the trickster. The problem with repeatedly joking that you're pregnant is that eventually you'll end up losing some much needed credibility in the process. This scenario in particular brings to mind the whole "boy who cried wolf" predicament. Could the husband have kept his cool just a bit more? Sure. Also though, it sounds like he'd hit a breaking point of his own for when it came to being played around with.

Incompetent Drivers Who Should Be Banned From The Road

The amount of actually qualified drivers on the road is shocking. It wouldn't be too stupid an idea to just start prying licenses out of people's idiotic hands. Sure, people would be be mad about it, but if you're the kind of idiot driver who finds yourself driving for an hour on rims or constantly has plywood flying off the back of your truck, just go be mad on the bus.

People's Brilliant Ideas That Were Dumb Upon Review

It could be caused by inebriation, tiredness or just our own lack of mental faculties, but we get bad ideas. Sometimes our ideas are phenomenal, but that's only because we've just "invented" something that already exists. As stupid as our brilliant thoughts are, we can all have faith that even a stupid thing we invent could be used for something other than its intended purpose.

Tumblr Thread: The Plant World Is Actually Nuts

The plant world is bonkers. There are battalions of mint and strawberry bushes waging war against one another with an unnerving level of strategy involved. Naturally, as Tumblr so often does, this particular thread ends up escalating even further into the nightmarish land of the Kudzu vine. It turns out the Kudzu vine is basically a massive, green, alien life force that's here to literally smother everything to death. If you're looking for some more gold from the world of Tumblr check out this recent thread we shared about a tragically misunderstood, nice guy named Vinny.

Bride Asks Shower Guests To Ship Gifts To House, Guests Disregard Request

It sounds like this bride was pretty dang clear about exactly what she wanted/needed when it came to the gift giving process for her bridal shower. Basically, by having all of her bridal shower guests actually present their gifts to her in person, she ended up having to decide whether she'd shell out some serious dough for shipping those gifts to her place in California, or returning all the gifts and then repurchasing them. Both of those routes aren't particularly appealing. Thus, it's no surprise that a fair number of people in the comments section were in agreement that the bride wasn't in the wrong for not being too stoked about the whole situation. 

For some more wedding drama check out this post about a best man who roasted a bridezilla, and the drama that ensued

Tumblr Thread: The Tragically Misunderstood Nice Guy Named Vinny

This is just the kind of imaginative Tumblr thread that keeps us going. You have a wonderful human being named Vinny who just so happens to carry with him a whole lot of mannerisms that could be easily misinterpreted by suspicious onlookers.

The Dumbest Things That Smart People Have Done

Just because someone has the "book smarts" doesn't mean that they're not staggeringly clueless in other parts of life that require nothing more than some common sense. It can be beneficial for the world's brainiacs to have their egos put in check every now and again. Otherwise you run the risk of having to deal with some people that are sold on the naive idea that they know everything of importance in this world. That's just not an outlook that's good for anyone.
