Choosing Beggar Gets Free Computer, Asks For Free Upgrade Next

Apparently the free computer wasn't good enough. Some folks are really just busy looking for something to complain about, as they move from one want to the next want. The fact that this choosing beggar got a free computer, and then pitched a fit after being rejected on getting a free upgrade (normally costs $300) is absurd. Boggles the mind, really.

Total Stranger Wants Website Built For Free

The world as we know it operates under some guidelines, with an expectation that folks are maintaining social decency. Choosing beggars would seem to operate under a different set of self-encouraged rules. They approach otherwise peaceful negotiations and sales, with belligerence and irrational demands. Take this lazy roommate who morphed into one giant excuse whenever the utility bill showed up. Now that's infuriating.

This boss came in hot on the scene, and thought they'd try to go full bully alpha mode. Well, that didn't shape up too well for them. Nope, not at all.

If you're getting tired of having to respond to calls, do what this guy did and turn yourself into basically a living scarecrow. Sure it's a little creepy here and there but your friends and coworkers will be none the wiser. It's like the futuristic version of glasses with eyes drawn on the outside.

Tech Memes for the Computer Fiends

This one goes out to the heroes of every office, school and setting in need of general administration. The computer savvy, the IT people, the tech support and tech workers who know more about computers than everyone else and make Karen from accounting and Dave from sales look like the useless cave people that they are. But honestly, if you know literally anything about computers you'll probably get most of these. For more, here are excruciating moments of tech support gore as well as the story of a tech support worker whose manager threw out 40 computers not knowing what they were.

Ways Coders Politely Reject "Million Dollar Ideas"

Someone on AskReddit asked for coders to share the various ways they've gone about turning down the big, million dollar ideas from enthused individuals that can get deluded by their own blinding excitement. Sometimes it's a process of poking holes in the plans, while other times it can work to just take the idea completely seriously, and then watch the "ideas person" slowly melt into the realization that there will be work required of them, in the process of bringing the idea to reality as well.
