We've seen our fair share of bosses that never should've been put in their places of power in the first place. With that being said, it's nothing short of deeply satisfying to see a boss show the rest of the world why they were given the reins like they were. This boss pulled off some straight up tech support magic, and left everyone else in speechless awe. Pretty awesome that she was able to extract that number in under 8 minutes. You don't even need to know what that means to appreciate the timely manner with which she pulled it off.
Social media can be a good thing. Sites like Facebook and Instagram allow people to keep in touch with family and friends - a luxury that people are learning is incredibly important as the world copes with the Covid-19 pandemic. But there's a darker (and untintentionally hilarious) side to being able to share images with your followers. We're talking about the fact that people can hit the "share" button and share convoluted memes and posts that they seem to think are ultra deep. You know, "We live in a society" type sentiments. They often have to do with some very teenage feelings about loneliness and dating, and, even worse, the negative effects of the same technology they're using to share their "deep thoughts." The r/im14andthisisdeep subreddit is an impressive archive of these kinds of posts, a veritable hub of cringey thoughts that, frankly, we can't help but eat up. We've put together some of their latest and greatest offerings, but you can enjoy some more of this content here if you end up craving more.
Everyone's got 20/20 hindsight, but many are blind when it comes to predicting outcomes and sharing takes that stand the test of time. It's not always fun to look into the past, especially when you're the one with the embarrassingly wrong analysis immortalized forever on subs like r/agedlikemilk. For us passive observers on the other hand, this stuff is mad entertaining.
This dog is doing a whole lot better than our buddy who unsuccessfully tried to herd some sheep. That being said, give a dog enough time and environmental stimuli, and it's bound to try and herd something. Check out some more gold from Tumblr with these odds and ends from the brilliant minds of Tumblr.
It's weird. Humans have this ingrained proclivity to attach themselves to the most unexpected objects. Like, for instance, a Roomba. You never know. You find that Roomba cleaning up your perfect mess and suddenly you're infatuated with this beautiful piece of technology.

This fun Tumblr thread escalates quickly after a few folks share their hilarious experiences with befriending some of the hard working, earnest Roombas of the world. It considers what it'd look like if there were a knife-wielding Roomba on board a human starship, and all the kinds of chaos that would inevitably ensue.

Man, it sounds like this home has all the dang advices. It was only a matter of time before something like this occurred. It was one thing for the daughter to accidentally connect to the wrong device and play some disruptive music in the middle of her mom's virtual book club. But it's a whole another matter when you find out that the song that was playing was "WAP."
It feels like a year has passed since we Americans received that $1,200 stimulus check. While some people used the payment to pay rent or keep themselves afloat in the beginning of the pandemic, we noticed that some of our geekier friends were committed to spending that guap and stimulating the economy. Not by making a few frivolous clothing purchases or decking their home-prisons with houseplants. Instead, these crafty computer geeks dropped that sweet government money on fresh PC builds. Bright lights. Coolant. Enough memory to run some serious games. While these concepts might be lost on many of us, they're basically a religion over at r/pcmasterrace. The subreddit is a home for people eager to share their builds with like-minded individuals, and has proven itself to be a wonderful source for highly specific memes. We've thrown a few of them together here, but if you need more, the subreddit is flush with 'em. And we promise they won't crash your computer.
Sometimes you're having a conversation with a human being that you otherwise thought was perfectly rational, and not prone to fits of blind and entirely irrational rage, and then they pull a fast one on you. This particular customer opted for being a waking nightmare. Fortunately, the tech support employee who fielded the situation kept their cool, and it all worked out in the end.
It's quick little exchanges like this that spotlight just how much things have changed. Yes, in those olden days before emails were around people were still able to get stuff done. Might've taken a little extra exertion, but the world still kept spinning madly on. Anyone who has ever had a conversation with someone in a younger generation has likely had that, "dang I'm getting old" moment.
We love a good old IT revenge. Especially when it involves some shady brokers that took their IT guy for granted, as they ran their firm like a candy store, and ultimately learned IT guy was absolutely crucial. Plus, the fact that they ended up having to pay another guy on contract basically a year's worth of IT guy's salary was truly the icing on the cake.
