Might've overcommitted on that one, my dude.
Man, with all the stories about Karens going off on customer service employees and generally depositing large amounts of toxic energy into an otherwise peaceful environment, we hardly ever here from their kids about how difficult it is to have them as parents. This thread peels back the curtain on what it's like to grow up with a Karen as your mom. It's no easy situation.
You never know what you're going to find behind the next "right swipe" in the wild world of Tinder. Some people that use the app are actually able to strike up a reasonable conversation that gives way to a legitimate relationship on down the road. Other folks use the app to try out the best and worst of their pickup lines that they have on hand. The following collection of moments from Tinder have some wins, fails, and just generally shameless one-liners.
One of our favorite pastimes is admiring the cringe explosion that is old people using social media. Twitter user @dogwithablog_69 has made all of this a lot easier with this Twitter thread of the elderly and technologically ignorant completely abusing Facebook's cheerful status banners. The collection is impressive, a very worthwhile way of getting your Monday procrasturbation on.
We thought there was nothing quite as laughable as an teenager on Instagram complaining about their myriad trials and tribulations, but man, some of these cringe-filled pictures are starting to change our mind.. This pseudo-deep shit that people are putting out there is completely bonkers. And of course, we love it.
When a fandom gets too big, it can develop its own set of weird rules and become toxic. All of a sudden you have people who all like the same thing judging each other over certain parts of that thing they like. Sometimes the fandom itself is obnoxious to people who are minding their own business, making it even harder to associate yourself with that thing you like. For a more fun look into fandom, here's a tumblr thread on how Darth Vader is the queen of drama.
Before the internet, people would show that they were tough by maybe wearing a muscle shirt or owning a comically huge truck. Maybe they'd throw some flexes your way or pick a fight at a bar. Now, thanks to social media, dudes can make their toughness known with cringey posts that promise they're capable of messing someone up. The r/iamverybadass subreddit does an amazing job of cataloguing this specific kind of "badass." And we can't get enough of hilariously toxic masculinity.
It's a pretty well-known fact that ignorance is bliss. These tidbits from an especially uncomfortable AskReddit thread are definitely proof of this theory. One masochistic user asked the community to share all the glorious factoids they wish they hadn't learned, and honestly - we feel the same way. Sometimes you really don't want to learn something every day.
This would appear to be a case of Karen's son trying to sabotage his computer, so that he was able to get a new one. Unfortunately, Karen approached the situation with stubborn ignorance and some belligerence to wash the whole mess down. Check out some more juicy Karen drama with this chill teacher who foiled an anti-breakfast Karen.
It would be really interesting to have this much undeserved confidence. Who in their right mind thinks they have a better understanding of a language than an grandma who's been speaking it for her entire life? And on top of that, he goes in and tries to "correct" them. It sounds like a recipe for an extremely awkward relationship. Here are some more entitled people and their demanding boldness, as well as some facepalm moments of mystifying dumbness.
Just cause you're a regular doesn't mean that you get a free pass for treating the hard working staff anything less than great. There's just some kind of mentality that seeps into the mind of a regular (sometimes), where they think that they can trouble the waiter/bartender because they've been there so many times, and leave a decent tip. Enough is enough. Sounds like these ladies did not make their return after staging a very unnecessary public freakout.
