It's spring cleaning season, which means it's time to dig through the treasures deep in your bedroom that haven't seen the light of day since your high school years. With the New Year's Eve glasses from the turn of the millennium on your face, you peep through the center 0's of ‘2000’ and shuffle through yearbooks, old costumes, and miscellaneous junk that you once thought held value. While most of it is probably overdue to be tossed in the trash, sometimes you can find some hidden treasures...

'I spent hundreds of unnecessary dollars in oil changes': Man finds out his car's odometer was set to kilometers instead of miles 7 years after he bought it

New fear unlocked. So, this man bought a used car about seven years ago. Everything checked out, the car ran great, and all of the paperwork was in order. The only peculiar thing he noticed was that he was putting "miles" on the car pretty fast, but he didn't think much of it because he drove a lot and took a lot of weekend trips. Fast forward SEVEN years when he took the car into the shop. After arguing with the technician about how many miles were on the car, the OP uncovered the truth.

'The pizza is CRAWLING with ants': Blind guy accidentally eats leftover pizza with a few extra toppings

In a lot of cultures it's super normal to eat bugs, however, in most Western societies, just the thought of having creepy crawlies on your plate gives people the heebie-jeebies. But if you didn't know you were eating bugs, would that make it better? Would the husky crunch of bug legs in your mouth be delicious or revolting? For a blind person, this is apparently a very real possibility.

'An anonymous individual began stealing my sandwiches': Dude accidentally feeds sandwich stealing child a really spicy sandwich

Being taught not to steal other people's things is a really important lesson to learn at a young age. The older you are when you learn this lesson, the more serious the consequences. For instance, if you go around stealing other people's sandwiches at the age of 9 years old, it seems a suitable punishment that one of those sandwiches might end up being hotter than the blazes of the burning sun itself. I feel like this is the best result if your parents, mentors, and teachers have somehow failed…

'I left a bad review': Company threatens to sue former employee, blasts their 'work ethic'

This person probably never imagined that a company would take their bad review so seriously. As a company, you rely heavily on your star rating . Lots of places maintain five stars, or sometimes four, but once your business has three stars or less, lots of people will avoid it just based off of that. After all, if enough people have had a negative experience at your restaurant or store, why would a customer bother going in there? Instead, they'd rather go to a place brimming with five star revi…

When generations of a family are brought to their knees over a kid's biology assignment, it's pretty safe to say that the foundations of the family house of cards were a little bit shaky to begin with. This situation plays out pretty much exactly the same as Ned Stark pouring over the Baratheon lineage and realizing the thing that was right in front of everyone's noses...

'[They] lock you out of the car completely': Customer service rep puts driver on hold while pet cat is stuck inside locked car

Car sharing is a brilliant idea — you can rent out your car for others to use while you're not using the car yourself. As a car owner, you make some cash, and as a customer, you can drive a car that's already located near to you, without having to deal with a typical rental service. What could go wrong? It's just one of many new services run by apps in today's modern age. But since it is a rather new idea, there are still some kinks that need to be straightened out. Just check out the story of…
