The Best Stuff People Found In The Garbage

"Value" is a very slippery concept, and what one person might choose to throw away could equally be seen as a major score for someone else. There are idiots throwing away guitars, TVs and jackets just because of a small fixable issue, and it's the sworn duty of the rest of us, the shameless garbage sifters, to pluck that ripe fruit-o-the-trash. Ironically it's often the stuff that people try to sell that's the real garbage, like this weird and dumb stuff people tried selling online. For a glimpse at the kind of people throwing nice stuff away, here are some of the most expensive things people witnessed.

Boss Demands Daily Email Check, Employee Puts It On Time Sheet

It's amazing how quickly stupid tasks become irrelevant the moment it starts costing the company money. The powers that be came down and told this part-timer that they'd have to check their email daily, so naturally, for this employee, it seemed like that should count on company time. For another one, here's a micromanager who demanded too many updates, so an employee fought back with even more updates.

Weird, Bad and Absurd DIY Situations

A whole lot of us have looked at some fixture in our home and thought "man, it wouldn't be too difficult to gussie that thing up a bit. I could borrow Doug's saw and crack that baby open. Maybe throw some extra pipes in there. Yeah, I could have a super toilet." Most of us who have that thought realize very soon after that it's not as easy we might think it is. The rest of us go for it and end up with some low budget DIY engineering solutions.

Worst Valentine's Day Gifts People Received

Valentine's Day rolls around once a year to either throw the world's hopeful romantics into a lustful frenzy full of promise and loving gifts and positive energy, or it can push other folks into a misery-drenched state of loneliness unlike anything they normally experience on a daily basis. It's a highly commercialized "holiday." Many people end up digging deep into their bank accounts, and dishing out the big bucks on fancy meals that would otherwise never be considered. Obviously, this year's a bit of a curveball for everyone. Like, can you even get into a restaurant in the first place? And if you decide to go that route for the Valentine's Day date, is it really something that you're comfortable with considering the circumstances of this tumultuous time? Outside of that though, the process that can go into trying to get your special someone a meaningful gift can be a nerve-wracking one, riddled by self doubt. All this pressure can build up over whether or not you're actually getting something that they'll appreciate, or if you're just unknowingly digging yourself a deep hole because you failed to get them something that reflects how well you know them, and how much they mean to you.

Maybe, there's all this momentum around Valentine's Day because of the sea of sappy Rom Coms we have available at our disposal. Romantic movies can end up contributing toward this overriding narrative that you need someone to be happy, and if you end up with that special someone, you're obligated to provide them gifts on Valentine's Day. Who knows? To each their own. Everyone will naturally do it a little different.

With respect to this AskReddit thread though, we have people sharing the very worst of the Valentine's Day gifts that they've ever received. Can you imagine just being in the same room as someone who was receiving one of these gifts? The amount of awkward silence that must've ensued after some of these gift exchanges, must've been palpable. I mean, hey, you live and you learn. Sometimes you end up fully committing to a gift for your partner that you've deluded yourself into thinking they'll like, and not completely loathe. 

We can all fall prey to bouts of well intentioned confusion. If you're lucky you'll be able to get away with a wipeout on a Valentine's Day gift by riding the "it's the thought that counts" wave. Because at the end of the day, it really is. If you have an agreement with your partner where you guys are game with giving each other Valentine's Day gifts, then it's really up to the both of you to not be too critical of one another when the gift exchange part of the process rolls around. Or, maybe the silly banter and roasting of each other is one of the funnest parts of the whole situation. All in all, we hope that these Valentine's Day gift fails make you feel a little bit better about any unfortunate moments you've experienced on Valentine's Day.

Unfair Manager Threatens Staff, They All Walk Out

It's everyone's fantasy at some point in time to be able to just say enough is enough and walk out the door of their job. These employees were put through enough that they felt it was a reasonable option. And not only that, they came back for burgers. For another satisfying walkout story, here's an employee who walked out but ended up getting promoted. And here are some "screw this, I'm out" moments.

A Homeowner's Association is supposed to make sure that a place is basically pleasant to live in, but many have the opposite affect.

Entitled People and Their Comical Demands

There's something spectacular about witnessing the unadulterated audacity of absurd entitled people. Whether it's a bridezilla trying to bully a wedding photographer into working for free, a landlord who's baffled why they have to provide their tenants with working faucets, or just some guy who's trying to buy a brand new TV with a wallet full of monopoly money, it never seems to get old. Entitled people with their laughable boldness keep finding new ways to demand ridiculous crap.

It's a personal choice to spend your whole day learning about mistakes and horror, but at the same time it can get to be an enormous bummer that makes you lose faith in people. That's why it's a decent idea to clear the air every once in a while with some wholesome memes.
