'We found about 2,000 jars of green beans': Grandpa detests green beans, hides thousands of cans from his wife for decades

It's remarkable the lengths this grandpa went to avoid having to eat green beans. The fact that his distaste for the vegetable became one of the defining characteristics of his personality well beyond his lifespan is also kind of iconic. I could only dream that the future generations of my family will be talking about my disgust for feta cheese. When you consider the personality traits of the people within your family both living and dead, you might begin by listing out their passions and inter…

‘A breath of fresh air’: Heartless Karen throws tantrum about homeless man who ‘stinks,’ kind hotel employee pretends he's a guest and gives him free room with a hot shower

What a world we live in where kindness is something we have to “sneak” into our place of employment. It takes a truly caring person to risk their job in order to do the kind thing—especially when it comes to the U.S. and its homeless population. Most of the rules and regulations go against helping a houseless person. You constantly see employees “shooing” away homeless people from their property as if they were nothing less than a rodent who wandered in. It's heartbreaking. But what are you sup…

'Guess I need to bring my horse': College student's parking request gets denied, student rides horse to school

This college freshman really wanted their horse to come to school with them. Depending on where you live, that might be a completely normal thing to do. Lots of people ride horses around their neighborhoods as a means of transportation, and it works out just fine. I mean, that's what people did before the existence of cars anyway. Before cars ruled the streets, you had to get around on foot. If you wanted to get somewhere fast, you could get there at whatever speed your horse could run. These d…

It's human nature to judge a book by its cover.

'I just proved my worth to another company': Overworked analyst attempts to climb the corporate ladder, but is dismissed by higher management

Before signing a contract, there are a few things to watch out for. Above all, a shared goal of maintaining a healthy work-life balance. Secondly, employers tend to underestimate how much employees yearn for peace and quiet. In other words, we expect nothing but silence after five o'clock. No phone calls, no meetings, and most definitely no unnecessary bonding time with coworkers after office hours. The story below is from a devoted analyst who worked for a multinational construction materials…

As a kid, when the other kids were being mean, adults always told us to ‘turn the other cheek’ or simply let the mean jabs go by the wayside.
