14+ People Who Are The Reason We Can't Have Nice Things

Diply 23 Jun 2018

You know those kinds of people who come along with their own kind of energy, and even though you're proud of them for doing their own thing, you also kind of wish they'd take all of that uniqueness somewhere else?

Maybe they're just a little too chill. Maybe they're a little too extra. Regardless of how they do it, they kind of just ruin it for the rest of us.

1. Apparently, this sign was like this for two days.

Honestly, I'm kind of hoping that whoever's in charge of updating it just forgets that their screen is displaying outside, and that they end up putting something even more embarrassing up there for the world to see.

2. On the one hand, I'm cringing really hard at this. On the other hand, my birthday is coming up — and one of you had better buy me this card.

I've been giving you this free content for months now. The least you can do is cough up $1.50 for a card.

3. Well, thank goodness we need someone to cover four shifts from 10–2 every day.

Oh wait, you can't work with mayonnaise? I'm afraid that this isn't going to work at all. This is a strictly pro-mayonnaise work place. Thank you for your application, though.

4. Just because your promposal was memorable doesn't mean that you should have done it.

Then again, if they're as big of a nugget fiend as you are, then maybe this is actually the right way to do it. Who am I to judge? Oh, that's right, the guy writing the article.

5. If I ever stop laughing at older people being inept at Facebook, please check my pulse because I'm probably dead.

Or maybe older people have just been trolling us this whole time while they're actually off having fun in their own, much cooler social media platform.

6. For something that's specifically built for relaxing, who knew that getting into a hammock could be so stressful?

You know who knows? Dogs know. Ever seen a dog get into a hammock? It's horrifying.

7. Finally, a mechanism that can help me ketchup to the competition.

But seriously. I see all these weird robots getting made, and I have to wonder about practical applications. Like, do we really need a robot that runs like a hyena?

8. Apparently this is what $4,000 can get you for a "custom" door job.

Remember, doormakers. If you cut the hole too big, you can just jam the extra space with foam and no one will ever know the difference.

9. So this is a thing that exists.

I was horrified until they called it their "In-dentured Dessert," and now I'm torn, because that pun is excellent. So sure, I'll give it a passing grade, but I'm not going to try any.

10. Great. I'm trying to learn about physics or something for my exam, and the only thing I'm going to be able to remember is the name "Throckmorton."

So clearly, I'm even going to get the name part of the exam wrong.

11. A friendly reminder that you can't use the same solution to fix every problem.

Ironically enough, the 3st floor has been having problems with their water fountains not working properly.

12. Finally, a solution to the problem that nobody knew existed.

Mainly because I'm not fancy enough to wear ties in the first place. The second you invent an umbrella that also doubles as socks with sandals, you're working with my kind of aesthetic.

13. Now here's a picture to make you appreciate that copy editors are a thing.

Trust me when I tell you that these captions I write would be way less decipherable or entertaining if there wasn't a team of people making sure I don't sound like a complete numbskull.

14. From now on, I think that we should call forearms "arm thighs."

Sure, the bicep is really the thigh of the arm, but this box obviously doesn't give a hoot about biology.

15. This just kind of seems like you're rubbing it in at this point.

Like, are you saying that people in wheelchairs should watch their step? Or are you saying that I should watch my step to make sure I don't step on the stranded people in wheelchairs?

16. I don't think I've ever seen someone demand a refund for gas before, but I think I'm about to see it happen.

I don't know enough about cars to understand what exactly would happen if you put gas in your engine, but I've got to imagine it wouldn't be good.

17. Who knows? Maybe this is actually what she's going for.

DumpaDay | DumpaDay

Maybe she's working toward some huge mosaic of pictures of her eye at the various events that she's gone to, reminding her that the memories came from what she saw, not what she photographed. It's pretty deep, y'all.

18. Rack city. Rack, rack city.

What's blowing my mind about this one is that the bus driver seems to have chosen to just go along with it. You've gotta think that's way too much a liability to allow.

19. Personally, I'd think that dealing with your phantom elevator problem would be pretty much the only move, but I guess a sign will do for now?

Man, I thought I hated this picture, and then I noticed they spelled "elevator" wrong. It just got so much worse.

20. They never said they were open for 24 hours in a row.

I'm guessing they're only open four days a week, during a seven-hour period, but they take about an hour-long lunch somewhere in the middle, depending on how they're feeling.

21. Say what you want about this guy, but he's clearly putting the kind of thing out into the world that he wants to.

If you really want to add some variety to your life, you could add in some hip hop. I'd keep this going, but I can't really think of anything else that rhymes.

Oh wait, tip-top. Nailed it.
