Wife Thinks Husband Is Restaurant Manager, Demands Free Meals, Fires Employee

The internet stood in judgement of this intriguing case, wherein an overzealous wife of an employee vastly overestimated her powers. Managerial duties don't transfer via osmosis, but she sure felt like she had the authority to get free meals for her friends and fire a waitress who got in her way. Sometimes people's partners have a hard time with reality, like this Karen military wife who demanded salutes or this Lying brother who covered up the fact his wife was the breadwinner.

We've all heard stories about stuff like poisonous blowfish, but when you really think about it, there's a surprising number of foods that can kill you. It's not just poisonous foods, but also strange and specific allergies, extremely dodgy and less than hygienically stuff, or just something you might just choke on. There's a wide world of dangerous food out there, and many of us have found ourselves on the wrong end of the spoon. People will also eat the worst things, simply out of politeness.

A collection of cursed images that are deeply unsettling.

Back in 2015, someone learned their lesson about drones, presumably. Champion Skiier Marcel Hirscher was on his second run of the day when a camera drone plummeted out of the air, just missing him. And it shatters well too, the only way a drone knows how.

This viral video from TikTok user @carriejernigan1 has been making the rounds across the vast and disorienting online expanse that is the world of TikTok. It's no surprise. There's something innately captivating about ghost towns. Plus, plenty of people love to scare themselves a little bit. Not to say that this is scary, but it's definitely unsettling.

Entitled Folks and Their Unconventional Audacity

The absurd audacity of entitled people knows no limits. There's a kind of personality out there who's able to jump through as many logical hoops as it takes to make any self-serving request seem reasonable. There are bosses who will expect workers to pay for their own materials, landlords who see no problem asking people to pay 6 months up front, and complete strangers who will get angry at you for not sharing your Netflix password. It's amazing, watching how laughably bold entitled people will get.

Spicy April Fools Pranks People Planned

Nothing stirs up emotions quite like a solid prank. Maybe not "filling someone's car with bees" or "seducing your boss's wife" level pranking, but something like giving someone a jelly donut filled with mustard. People pull off some sinister pranks, and they're great to hear about, even if just to get ideas. We can't guarantee that anyone will trust you after doing crap like this, but it is kind of awesome.

It's probably not a good idea to smash a superheated metal ball with a hammer without a plan. Okay, we're gonna go out on a limb here and say it's definitely a bad idea to smash a superheated metal ball with a hammer unless you're a blacksmith who know why he's smashing that ball in the first place. And it's probably an even worse idea to do it in a t shirt. That said, the result is some real chaos god/level 60 battlemage material.

Manager Won't Make Customers Leave, Customer Stays Until 5 AM

Anyone who's worked retail knows that there are some infuriating customers out there, and sometimes they need a push in the right direction. This manager had it in their head that no one should be told to leave at 2 am, so this employee made a point to show just how bad of an idea that can be. It got results. For more customer stories, here are bold and mistaken customers who were at the wrong store.

Employee proves point to manager by letting customer stay til 5 am | r/MaliciousCompliance Posted by u/Ratsincorduroy 23 hours ago Proved my manager s better warn customers closing time oc M used work at store open until 2AM every night week, so as can imagine 2AM rolled around always ready get out there. Around 1:45AM would walk around and let each customer know individually store closing 15 minutes, and ask them if they needed help finding anything before then did this about 4 months working

Safety Failures Of OSHA-Defying Boldness

Sure, the get 'er done mentality is an effective way to motivate yourself to complete tough jobs and long hours, but when it's used by your boss to justify lowering you on a backhoe over the side of a cliff, you're entering safety failure territory. Anyone with a physical job is regularly tempted or ordered to take scary shortcuts in the form of safety failures that would make OSHA faint. Gotta admit, jacking a car up with a plastic chair doesn't really seem worth it.

The Worst Things People Ate Out of Politeness

As generally decent people, we pride ourselves on displaying a dizzying amount of decorum as houseguests. We will gladly sit at a great aunt's table and swill cloyingly sweet tea just to smile and glowingly lie through our rapidly decaying teeth over how grateful we are for the privilege. We will laboriously swallow dry biscuits and tamp them down with stalks of celery like we're muskets loading themselves. Sure, we'd rather not, but that social contract is nigh unbreakable. We'd much rather spend an entire night uncomfortable than say an unkind word about a mother-in-law's dismally soggy quiche. Go us and our willingness to tolerate these cursed food abominations. The things people eat to be polite are some of the worst foods people have eaten. Pour one out for those of us who wish we could pour this lukewarm soup into the waste basket.

Absurdly Overpriced Stuff People Have Seen

We all know someone who, against better judgement, will buy into the complete BS of an expensive product, and assume that the high price tag is a legitimate marker of quality. It's sad to see, but when someone spends literally any money on a rock in a bag, that's kind of on them. Here are some products that are getting more expensive and somehow worse, as well as some signs someone is trying way to hard to look rich.

Ridiculously overpriced products | patchyj 1.5k points 4 days ago couple years ago, Mark's and Spencer Food high end supermarket UK, tried selling "Cauliflower Steak" which thick slice cauliflower 2.50 covered plastic could literally buy whole cauliflower same row bit further down 40p.

Parents of Ugly Babies Share What That's Like

We knew kids were weird and stupid already, but for a decent amount of time they're also ugly too. It's true that none of us would look too great if we had soft heads that just got pushed through a human being like a play-dough fun factory, but it's kind of a toss-up how different people take it. They're not supposed to look great when they're fresh anyway. Life is weird like that. You're born into this world and it's just a matter of time before you start realizing all the illogical things your parents do.

Weird and Wild Junk People Were Told In Sex Ed

For a whole lot of people, sex ed was more of a fear factory than a sober discussion of scientific facts, and it's really weird how much unverified information and questionable analogies people are prepared to hare in order to get kids to do what they want. Yeah, a lot of awkward sex questions get asked in sex ed, but at least they sometimes get answered.
