People That Didn't Understand Everyday Objects

Someone on AskReddit asked for people to share their most hilarious and outright ridiculous experiences with witnessing other people not understanding how to operate everyday objects. Confusion can strike in the most seemingly of obvious situations. Sometimes people's brains take a break, and they forget how to operate.

Bad Grades People Thought Would Ruin Their Lives

Twitter user @PAYOLETTER started a thread on Twitter about bad grades people received during school. Bad grades that they assumed would ruin their lives. It's a funny thing. When in the middle of receiving a bad grade, the mind can leap toward conclusions about the future, things that haven't happened yet, and convince itself that it knows what exactly will come of receiving a bad grade. That sounds like some kind of heightened intelligence with an admirable level of processing power. Where was that during the test? 

Maybe the mind doesn't know what will happen. Maybe it's just a place thoughts pop up. Maybe in the moment of great stress, the "failed grade," and the ensuing thoughts of future scenarios...you can look at those thoughts as just that. Thoughts. Not what is. Are you merely your thoughts or something else, maybe, that can see them as that. An awareness? Isn't it impossible to be something if you're aware of it in the first place?

These people's stories about what they thought would happen after a failed grade vs. what is, certainly contribute toward the reality that what is, can be a damn hard thing to predict.

Dude Messes Up By Not Washing His Hair Properly For 10 Years

This guy experienced quite the wakeup call when he realized that he'd been washing his hair incorrectly for over 10 years. What he previously assumed was an unavoidable case of white flakes peppering the barber shop's floor every time he went in for a visit, was actually a symptom of very poor hygiene. Or at least that's how it sounds. Sounds like he proceeded to make sure things were squeaky clean up top, for going forwards. Lesson learned. Better late than never!

A viral Facebook post from Kristin Hagan is making the rounds, and it's all about old ladies who just can't seem to figure out how Facebook bios work.
