'Over a DECK BOX?!': New neighbors get fined by their authoritarian HOA for having a delivery box on their property, sparking a heated debate over HOA futility

DEFUND HOA. This is a mantra that many homeowners and condo-dwellers have chanted in the streets of their prospective neighborhoods with great fervor for many generations. While the concept of an HOA probably means well–keeping landscaping alive, houses looking pretty, and covering the costs of amenity upkeep–the uniformity of suburban Karens can maliciously overpower even the simplest HOA.

‘Well, you asked for it’: Professor demands blind student stick to assignment guidelines without consideration for their disability, student complies by turning in a black piece of paper

Professors in college can be divided into two personality groups. Either they couldn't care less about college or the class they are teaching, constantly missing classes and passing everyone on their test. Or, they are extremely strict and tough, with hardly any consideration for their students. Now, even without these professors, college is hard enough, so imagine having to go through college with the latter professors, while also being blind.

No matter which way you slice it, going to the dentist is tedious and a little traumatizing– however, for u/1ithe, a teenaged girl with the ‘metabolism of a hummingbird', her routine wisdom teeth removal surgery turned into an episode of Rick and Morty immediately after she was knocked out, largely because she was never fully unconscious.

gym gym-stories story at the gym reddit leggings workout working out viral tiktok

Kindhearted gym-goer considers telling a girl that her workout leggings are transparent, narrowly escapes his own public humiliation: 'It's a trap!'

If your best friend has their fly down, a stain on their shirt, or food in their teeth, it's common courtesy to tell them, right? Coming from a friend, flagging a wardrobe malfunction isn't uncouth, but at the gym, it's a different story.

'I offer $55k over asking price [on a different house]': Snobby realtor loses $10,000+ on a sale after underestimating a female executive's net worth

It's 2024 and there's still a wage gap between men and women. Although bigotry in the workplace is no surprise anymore, you'd think that out in the purchasing world, money would speak louder than gender. However, in our next tale, a chauvinistic realtor shoves his foot in his mouth after assuming a woman's financial capability... And no amount of fresh-baked cookies, commission incentives, or low-interest rates could change her mind after that blunder.

‘Sell your car and give me the money’: After having an expensive wedding, entitled groom asks friends for a loan, and goes as far as asking them to sell their car for him

‘Sell your car and give me the money’: After having an expensive wedding, entitled groom asks friends for a loan, and goes as far as asking them to sell their car for him

Do you think friends should loan each other money? Not small amounts like buying each other coffee or lunch, but pay-your-friend's-this-month's-rent kind of money. On the one hand, friends should be there for each other, and feel comfortable enough to ask for help when they need it. On the other hand, big sums of money can cause a lot of tension between two people, no matter how close they are. The thought alone of having to ask a friend for your money back can make anyone feel extremely uncomf…

'I'm not on duty, back off': Doctor refuses to provide medical care on flight, passenger tries forcing him to do so anyway

'I'm not on duty, back off': Doctor refuses to provide medical care on flight, passenger tries forcing him to do so anyway

What type of passenger are you on a long flight? Are you the type who falls asleep as soon as the plane takes off, only waking up when the meal is being served and when the plane lands? Or are you the type that never falls asleep, so you binge-watch an entire TV show while snacking on the complimentary snacks and drinks, and maybe chat a bit with your neighboring passenger? I think it's great that every person can find what to do on a flight in order to relax and enjoy the experience, but the e…

'A shipment of live Alaskan crabs escape[d] their container': 10+ Airline workers share the craziest things they've witnessed

Air travel is almost never an enjoyable experience. Sure, it may be exciting because it's taking you away to exciting places or home to visit loved ones—but the actual process of the travel itself is tolerable at best. Hours of waiting in endless queues and crammed uncomfortable seating, all the while a vague threat hanging over you that you may miss your flight (or have it canceled) and be stuck waiting at the airport for even longer. The whole experience is tedious and causes a lot of undue s…

‘She expected us to chase him’: Karen leaves her purse outside a store, then blames entire staff inside when it's taken

Do people just leave their valuable belongings at random places hoping no one will take them, or is it just this one Karen? When I worked in retail, I had a few regular customers who would occasionally ask me to put some shopping bags behind the counter while they went to get their car. Some even asked me to keep an eye on their kids while they ran to a different shop or took a phone call outside. Either way, I am no stranger to weird requests from customers. But I have to say that when I read…

'Pilot: "I'm not flying this"': Airline industry workers share the wildest things they've ever seen

The ordeal of air travel opens the doorway for some insane behaviors. You have groups of complete strangers who are collectively sleep-deprived, stressed, and overstimulated, crammed into far-too-small spaces for far too long. Air travelers usually have a lot riding on the success of their trip, too, and literally can't afford for things to go sideways, with holidaygoers having spent their literal life savings and cashed in all of their PTO in order to make this trip work—usually also facing un…

'This is going to cost you': Small photographer stands up to big corporation with a massive lawsuit after they used his photos without paying

Can someone explain to me why big corporations think it's okay to take advantage of ‘the little guy’? This photographer did a commercial job for a big company that was a pretty big deal for his career. The problem was, that they only paid him a third of the amount up front. When he tried to contact them about the rest, they completely ghosted him and then continued to use the pictures beyond their licensing agreement. Now, I can sort of understand when small companies need more time to pay and…

'I'm not driving 250 miles to look at some soil': Gardener shares wildflower seeds with a fellow hobbyist, they demand an in-person follow up when the seeds don't grow

Gardening is a challenging, yet rewarding, hobby that some people were born to do. However, if you're as horticulturally hopeless as I am, you'd know that it's a gift to have a green thumb. Personally, I'm the kind of gal who accidentally kills every house plant that crosses the threshold of my home and I am certainly not a green-thumbed individual– but at least I know my limits when it comes to garden work!

These people were pretty sure their friends were totally uninformed about the things they were saying. It happens to everyone at some point. You absorb some information from a documentary or a YouTube video, but you might misremember it. You think you know exactly what you're talking about, but when you go to mention it in a conversation, the other person stares at you like you have two heads. It's a universal experience that never ceases to be embarrassing! These folks shared the very silly th…

Man Reluctantly Accepts the Neighbor's Cat After They Leave Her Behind; Wholesome Friendship Blooms in a Classic 'Who Adopted Who' Scenario

Rescue animals can sometimes choose their rescuer. As human beings, we like to maintain a semblance of control over our own lives, but when it comes to pet ownership, nobody is ever fully prepared for the unconditional love that comes along with animal adoption. However, that love can come as a surprise to those who aren't even looking for it.
