Teachers' "That's Amazing But Please Stop" Stories

Students are curious and motivated individuals especially when it comes to breaking the rules or mocking each other. They'll go to impressive lengths in order to tastefully vandalize restrooms or expertly cheat the system. You can't tell them it's the right thing to do, but it's at least impressive. To give the kids some credit, here's a Tumblr thread on a teacher who underestimated their students during a social experiment.

'Sure Grandma, Let's Get You To Bed' Memes Mock Doubtful Truths

We love an easily exploitable meme format, and September's brought us some gems in that department. Our new favorite super-versatile meme has got to be 'Sure Grandma, Let's Get You To Bed'. The trend started on Twitter, but is popping up all over Instagram and Reddit- probably because it can be used in reference to just about everything. Most examples feature the "Grandma" character saying something (like "Netflix used to come in the mail") that sounds extremely hard to believe. The granddaughter character brushes the information off as nonsense, and suggests Grandma needs to rest her addled mind. We've put together some of our favorite examples of the meme, but we're willing to bet you'll find a lot more flying around the meme universe.

Wholesome Memes for a Little Boost

Life can give us a lot of garbage to deal with, so it's healthy to have a reminder that all the time there are people pulling through for each other. Even among the rough, there's some diamonds of positivity to grab onto. For example, there's this wholesome security team who saved an office's plants, or this wholesome neighbor who's helpful for no reason.

Getting used to a new work dynamic can be stressful, and this new employee decided that they wouldn't be bullied into participating in free donut day.

For some more office shenanigans, here's an employee who annoyed their coworker with plants.

Seventeen Saucy 'Shaq Reading' Memes

Shaquille O'Neal is a lot of things: a basket ball legend, a talented sports analyst and an avid Twitter user. He's also famous for playing a genie in the terrible 1996 flick Kazaam. But over the last few years, we've enjoyed Shaq's appearance in memes the most. The most popular format to feature the athlete has been Sleeping Shaq, but we're here to celebrate Shaq Reading. The memes feature Shaq staring smugly at the camera with an open book. The photo was part of the American Library Association's 1990s "READ" campaign, but it's definitely made more of an impact as a vehicle for humor. This gallery, which includes some of our favorite examples, is only the tip of the Shaq Reading iceberg. If you need to know more, you can pore over the meme's entry at Know Your Meme.

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.
