People that are rude to servers are their own kind of toxic monsters. Seriously, why would you ever go out of your way to be mean to someone who is just doing their job, and trying to help you out? But alas, we share a planet with these people. In this particular scenario we've got a couple mean Chads that thought they'd order up all the Johnnie Walker Blue they could stomach, only to realize that that would be their ultimate undoing.
It's hard to define what exactly makes something cringe. It's really a vibe. It's the embarrassing images and comments people post on the internet without irony that inspire others to log off. It's something that makes you feel ashamed just for having witnessed its awkwardness. So why do we subject ourselves to this pain? Well, because it's funny. If you're in a masochistic mood, we've got a whole bunch of cringe content for you to wince through. To be fair, a few of these specimens from r/cringepics and r/cringetopia are cringe in a self-aware way, which is actually kinda based.
Being able to squawk about your perceived achievements and intelligence is one of the unfortunate byproducts of social media. It's given a chance for Brain-Tyrants who believe they're literal geniuses to spread their wings and fly into the ceiling fan of self-congratulation. Thanks for clogging up the internet, you mistaken brain-lords.
Not all memes are fun and games. Some memes are meant to make you think. We found a goldmine of platitudes, carefully crafted by the internet's most profound pseudo-philosophers. Did you know the 'earth' without 'art' is just 'eh'? Pretty deep, right? A wise person once said, 'we live in a society.' Don't ask us what this means...you wouldn't get it.
Nothing melts our icy hearts like reading a story about a driver having to deal with some road rager that couldn't keep their stuff together, for like a minute (if that), and ends up being the butt end of a petty revenge. It's a beautiful thing, really. A lost art form.
There are things that make you sad, there are things that make you cringe, and then there are things that mix these two distinct feelings together into one big mess that can only be labeled as "yikes". We challenge you to get through this collection of sad cringe posts, and once you're done check out some dank memes that will hopefully help you recover.
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.
Talk about some wild and outlandish dating etiquette. Real or not, it's unfortunate to consider the realistic possibility that many human beings have encountered a scenario like this while out navigating the dating world. Some people are in fact out there just looking to get a free meal.
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.
What a classic choosing beggar scenario right here. They want something, they get the something, and then their own blinding entitlement leaves them convinced that they somehow got screwed over. It's fascinating (in a bad way) on some level to watch this kind of interaction so grossly devoid of logic, play itself out.
There are things that make you sad, there are things that make you cringe, and then there are things that mix these two distinct feelings together into one big mess that can only be labeled as "yikes". Here are ten prime examples from the past week.
Check out the previous list, if you dare.
We don't know if we should cringe or shed a tear at this roundup of posts, so we're just gonna avert our eyes respectfully. Take a look inside, if you're good with dealing with secondhand embarrassment, or check out the previous list since you're already in too deep to turn back.
