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.

Dumbest HOA Rules People Had To Deal With

A Homeowner's Association is supposed to make sure that a place is basically pleasant to live in, but many have the opposite affect. A really bad HOA is run by corrupt, power hungry people making self-serving and draconian rules about the exact hours one should take out their garbage cans. People have to deal with some real nightmare HOA situations.

People Reveal Awkward First Date Stories

So, it's Valentine's Day. Today a lot of people are thinking about their relationship status and reminiscing over past dates that either make them smile or crawl in a little hole. On a first date, people want to feel calm, cool and collected. But it's just not always possible. An awkward first date doesn't cancel out the possibility of a second date, but it sure does not feel good in the moment.

An Ex Employee's Rant About Worst Boss Behaviors

Sometimes you can find yourself situated in the gig that you grew up thinking you wanted all along, only to come to realize that the job is being proactively ruined by an absolutely terrible boss. A terrible boss will effortlessly stink up a peaceful environment with tidal waves of toxicity and anxiety, and make the rest of the employees that are just trying to get their jobs done feel like their tasks are insurmountable. If anything, it wouldn't hurt to keep these bad boss behaviors in mind for your future gigs.

We know that complaining about "Karens" has gotten old, but that's really this obnoxious anti-masker's name. It makes perfect sense that she'd be in trouble for refusing to leave the store because she wouldn't wear protection.  Thanks to the Brook Park Police Department, this Karen got the kind of justice she deserved.

Entitled People With Their Childish Demands

Nothing stirs the blood and busts out a wicked riff on the heartstrings quite like people who make insane demands of people while displaying absolutely no self reflection. Entitled people and their absurd audacity will grift strangers, talk mad trash and do it all as if they're still in the right. It's kind of incredible.

Times Real Life Boss Fight Moments Occurred

There's no denying the fact that this wild world is packed with its fair share of absolute units and real life bosses. By bosses we mean those folks that seem like they have certain skills just maxed out at 100. Or, a real life boss moment could be when someone escalates an otherwise calm and docile environment into a complete chaotic, adrenaline-charged mess of a moment. Like those two bros that came in brandishing a 2222-card Yugioh deck. Talk about an eternal game with no end in sight.

Entitled Teen Wants To Steal Tattoo Artist's Design, Doesn't Understand Their Anger

Man, it's got to be profoundly frustrating to be a tattoo artist in a day and age rife with entitled individuals like the one we have here. For whatever puzzling reason the kid in question thinks that it's totally chill to go and steal a tattoo artist's design, ask them for an edit, and then they have the audacity to question the artist's frustrated response. At that point it seems like the entitlement has clouded the individual's head to such an extent, we're not even sure that the typical reality check would get anything done.

Picky Eater Husband Demands Fancier Meals

So like does this guy want his wife to make two dinners every night or something? Seems like if he doesn't want to do any cooking, he might have to learn how to grit through the pain and learn how to eat a vegetable.

Employee Gets Karen Translator Fired For Being Difficult

Wow, after reading through this glorious tale of pro revenge it would seem that this Karen translator was so aggressively clueless that she didn't even realize her job was pretty much useless. If one is able to lock down a paying gig that doesn't actually really carry any weight in a company's profitability, then it's probably wise to not stir up a fuss about someone else who's a big player for the company.

Pettiest Reasons People Held Grudges

People's capacity for holding petty grudges is truly astounding. Sometimes you might completely unknowingly rub someone that you regularly cross paths with the wrong way, and ever since that unfortunate moment it's as if they've undertaken a lifelong personal vendetta against you. If you ever find yourself on the other end of a petty grudge it never hurts to try to smooth things over. With that being said though, sometimes folks just refuse to let things go.

Bridezilla Fires Maid Of Honor, Asks If She's A Bridezilla

Weddings just have an uncanny knack for bringing out the very worst in people. Sometimes bridezillas are completely blind to their own toxic antics. It would seem that this bridezilla in particular, is in dire need of a little wakeup call. She even goes so far as to share her series of text messages with her bridesmaids, and it becomes pretty dang clear that there's some rude behavior going on.

Most Hypocritical Behavior People Witnessed

Someone on AskReddit fired up a thread about the most painfully hypocritical behavior that people ever witnessed. Few things in this life bring one's blood to a boil like witnessing someone do the very thing that they openly condemn everyone else for. It's a gross display of ignorance and pretty much some of the most unbecoming behavior that one can adopt.

The retail world and service industry are no strangers to the obnoxious Karen who seemingly exists to abuse shift workers, and it seems like the plague has produced a new breed of Super Karens who complain to managers about anything and everything all while refusing to wear a face mask in the midst of a global pandemic. 

For the essential workers out there who have had to continue dealing with crazy ass Karens, these memes and posts are for you. Thanks to the internet, the evil-doings of Karens are now very well-documented, and so we can roast Karen from the safety of our own homes.
