10 Life Lessons Gained by Wasting Your Childhood Playing “The Sims”

If you’re like me, you could have been a millionaire if you spent as much time learning about finance as you did playing “The Sims” growing up.

I guess we’re all not millionaires then, yeah? Anybody?

But we did learn some completely useless things about life, so here they are…

Twitter Thread About Mom’s Top 3 Albums Quickly Becomes Hilarious

It all started with a simple question:

For those who are uninitiated, this question is actually a popular meme that makes fun of the way some people hop on the bandwagon of something popular without knowing much about it.

But, Twitter being Twitter, people definitely had plenty of answers. It’s just how Twitter does it.

Wow, this mom is harsh AF!

Oh gawd…

All these threats!

More threats!

Do you know how is in charge?!

Help!

Just cat mom things…

Yep, all the classics! 😀 😁 😂 🤣

20+ Times Things Got Really, Really Weird With Complete Strangers

Meeting new people is an inevitable part of life, and for some folks it can be cringey AF because they’re just so damn awkward and they make every situation they’re in that way.

Yeah, don’t blame the strangers. Blame your own damn self!

Let’s get real, ya’ll!

1. SLAP! Oh shiiiiiii…

I played this game with some buddies in college where we would slap each other’s necks really hard.

I saw my friend studying at the library, went from behind him and slapped him really hard.

It turned out to be some total stranger and not my friend! I almost went #2 in my pants and so did the other guy.

2. Walmart is always weird…

An old man behind me in a Walmart checkout called out a common nickname of mine. I turned to face him and didn’t immediately recognize him. He was gushing with tears in his eyes about how much he loved me and how he couldn’t wait to go home with me.

I asked him if it was possible he had me confused with a different person. The guy’s tears started falling, and he began choking apologies through sobs. Apparently, I was a dead ringer for his long-dead wife.

Combine that and the dementia setting in and presto, Walmart meltdown.

3. Beardfinger!

I did something awkward at work.

There was a guy who came in with his kids and had a big bushy beard. He came up to the cash register and asked me where to find an item. I was a little overenthusiastic I suppose because I stuck my fingers out straight ahead to point him in the right direction and they went straight into his beard!

I felt like I had assaulted him, but luckily we laughed it off.

4. Too many feelings…

One time, I was in a sporting goods store at the mall. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw a shirt with a really cool design and fabric.

I started feeling the fabric to see how warm it would be, when all of a sudden I heard, “Dude. What’re you doing.” I looked up and it wasn’t a mannequin. It was a man.

My eyes grew wide and I fled. Left the mall even.

5. Wait… what?!? DAD!!!

Once, when I was about 10, I got in the passenger side of what I thought was my dad’s car.

I was waiting for a few minutes and then the real owner of the car came. At first, I was terrified that he was going to kidnap me and steal the car, so I started scrambling for the door handle. Then he started yelling at me for being in his car. That’s when I realized I was in the wrong car and booked it back to the store, where my dad was waiting and laughing hysterically.

He saw me get in the wrong car and just waited to watch it play out.

6. The vomit comet

When I was about 13, I went on a school trip which included a boat ride.

It was a windy day and the sea was rough, so like most of my friends, I got extremely seasick. The toilets were full of puking school kids so when it was my turn to churn I found a space along the rail and let loose.

I aimed down at the sea but the wind whipped my vomit about 20 feet over to a middle-aged man who was enjoying the sea air. As I watched in horror, he registered that he was being spattered with something, but it was only when my second wave hit that our eyes met and I saw his face change from confusion to horror.

I had no words, just more vomit, so he hurried off, presumably to clean himself. Thankfully, I didn’t see him again; but I’m sure I ruined his day.

7. Yeah, race isn’t a good conversation starter…

I worked security at an aquatic theme park and was watching Jeopardy in the employee entrance. One of the veterinarians came through and watched it with me for a bit. He said he watched it religiously and was hoping to get selected as a contestant. He’d heard that they like to have a diverse group of contestants, and they hadn’t had a black guy for a while, so he liked his chances.

A few days later, there were two black contestants on the show, so when I saw him the next time, I asked:

“Hey, did you catch Jeopardy last week?”

“No, why?” he responded.

“There were two black guys on it,” I explained.

He just stared at me blankly for a few seconds, then walked off. That’s when I realized I was talking to a completely different gentleman.

8. Abort hug! ABORT!

I went to a new doctor years ago because the medicine I was taking to help quit an addiction of mine was making me very sick.

After meeting with her and having a great conversation about how she also struggled with the same addiction for years, our appointment came to an end.

As I was leaving the room and opened the door, I turned around to thank her for the encouraging words. Her arm was raised up in a “gimme a hug, not a handshake” position. I thought, okay sure, and went in for the hug.

As soon as I did, I heard her say, “Oh, okay?” in a puzzled tone and immediately realized she was reaching for the door behind me, not asking for a hug.

I aborted the hug which made me look more awkward and raced out of the doctor’s office as fast as I could.

9. TBH… this is fucking hilarious!

My dad loves buying clothes for me but he’s bad at guessing my size.

He’ll find a complete stranger that he thinks looks like me and have them try the stuff on. Then he’ll take their picture and send it to me.

It’s super weird and I can’t get him to realize how creepy it is.

My favorite pics he’s sent is a five-year-old wearing a hat (we had the same hair color) and a scared looking older woman wearing a coat (we were the same height).

10. Stealing a fist bump…

I thought some random guy was trying to give me a fist bump while walking down the street.

It turned out, he just was trying to scratch his nose. I just got an awkward high five and fist bump thing.

I avoided all eye contact after that and slowly shuffled back to my grandmother.

11. Hey, a compliment is a compliment!

I got on an elevator with a woman and she had on these really nice boots on, so I complimented them by saying, “Nice boots.”

She cupped her breasts and said, “Well, you’re not shy; thank you, they’re real.” Then I immediately realized I said she thought I said, “Nice boobs.”

Longest elevator ride ever.

To this day, whenever I say boots in any context, I do so with a very hard deliberate “T.”

12. Oh you want some of this…?

I took an Uber once where the driver obviously stopped at McDonald’s on his way to get me and had the bag on the passenger seat.

He kept munching on fries and my desire for them grew so much that I asked him if I could have some. I wish this was a love story and I wish I could tell you we shared his fries and are still great friends to this day, but I cannot.

He gave me a firm no and kept on driving.

13. What a jerk off…

Had to use a public restroom and the guy in the stall next to me forgot to lower the volume (or put his headphones in) and I heard the jingle from a very specific company that makes animated adult entertainment.

The person quickly made sure the video was no longer audible for me but it was too late, I knew what he was going to do. I don’t think he knew that I knew what he was watching, but to have to sit there waiting for my body to clean itself out while knowing that he was watching animated adult videos in the stall next to me made me nervous as all hell.

14. Ya best leave them alone…

I was at a bar bathroom in a stall doing illicit drugs with a friend and he started talking about the two hot chicks at the bar.

All of a sudden, we heard a guy say, “Are you talking about the two girls at the bar?” My friend said, “Yeah, they’re hot.” He responded, ‘Well, one’s my sister and the other’s, my girlfriend.”

We tiptoed out of there as he was finishing his business in his stall.

15. Speechless…

One time, I was driving around town with my friend when I noticed I was being followed by an older car. I made several left turns that eventually made us go in a big circle, to which he followed. At this point, I was getting nervous, so I pulled into a convenience store and turned around. He did the same exact thing.

After this, I decided I’d pull into the closest business and go inside. I pulled into a shop where I knew the owner and walked in with my friend. The stranger followed us in, looked around a bit and said, “My soul is saved… Is yours?”

At that point, my friend, the owner and I were all speechless. The stranger then stared at us, calmly walked back to his car and drove away. I’ve never been so confused in my life.

16. Sores

I worked at a hotel front desk. An old, maybe 75-year-old lady called the front desk and wanted a pillow delivered to her room. When I got there with the pillow, she wanted me to come inside. I’m like “Uh no, here is your pillow,” but she insisted, so I did.

I got inside and she shut the door. She told me to put the pillow on the bed, then went to a drawer in her dresser. At this time I was like, “I need to return to the front desk,” thinking the worst.

She proceeded to pull out a box of bandaids and wanted me to put them on the open sores on her feet.

I noped out of there as fast as I could and left before she came down for morning breakfast.

17. Behind you…

I was standing behind this guy waiting for the elevator in a hotel. We were down in the lobby and it was busy with lots of people coming and going, so he obviously hadn’t noticed me. Once the elevator doors opened, he got in, but he still didn’t see me walk past him on the other side. As SOON as the doors closed, while obviously still under the impression that he was alone, he let out this heinous flatulence that went on for about ten seconds.

Midway through, out of the corner of his eye, he spotted me standing just behind him. The poor guy almost jumped out of his skin. He was staring at me as if he’d just seen a ghost. I was staring at him with what I can only assume was a fairly horrified expression.

18. Toe virgin

The first time I went to get a pedicure, I went with my mother-in-law. She’s a very loud woman who often doesn’t understand what she’s saying.

She kept screaming at the pedicurist, “BE GENTLE WITH HER, SHE’S A TOE VIRGIN. SHE’S A TOE VIRGIN. DON’T POUND HER.”

God help me, I will never go back.

19. Oh hai!

I hooked up with a guy in college and fell asleep in his dorm room.

I woke up in the middle of the night needing to go #1 so badly but I was unable to find any of my clothes right away. I ended up spending so long trying to find them in the dark that by the time I had enough to wear out in the hall, I didn’t think I’d make it.

He was still sleeping, so I grabbed a big reusable water bottle and squatted over it. It was blissful relief until I looked over and saw his roommate staring at me in horror.

20. 7/11 moves…

I tried to make some moves on a girl when I was in high school.

We were in a 7/11 near the back, and because of the late hour, I figured we were alone. When she turned me down and left, I decided to drown my sorrows with a bag of Sour Patch Kids and physically ran into the older, bearded man who had been buying nuts.

He gave me a sympathetic look and opened his mouth as if to say something, and I panicked. I said, “See you tomorrow!” and left the store.

21. Yeah, and….

The first time I hung out with a girl I knew from a bar, I paid for dinner because she had comped me so many cocktails before.

She took that as a sign that I wanted to hook up with her and I got really uncomfortable.

I ended up apologizing for buying dinner.

22. Donut judge me!

I was at the grocery store with my wife and when we were passing the donut section I said, “I’m going to humiliate those donuts.”

I knew it was something that would make her laugh.

When I said it, I turned around and saw that there was a woman in line who was not my wife.

She didn’t laugh.

23. Well, this worked out tho…

When I was in college, I was waiting for a shuttle bus and a girl I had previously been in a class with walked up to the stop with a guy I didn’t know.

I said to her, “Hi, how are you,” and we had a short exchange of pleasantries. Then she turned to the guy next to her and in sign language said: “I don’t remember her name.”

So I sign, “That’s okay, I don’t remember your name either.” I then offered my hand to the guy with her and introduced myself.

Hey, nice boots! 🤣🤣🤣

Guy Who Disowned Sister for Marrying His Bully Asks The Internet if He’s the Bad Guy. They Assure Him He’s Not

Whatever your dilemma in life, chances are there’s a subreddit for it. For instance, if you’re struggling with whether or not you handled a situation in the right way, there’s the AITA subreddit, where you can ask strangers, “Am I the asshole?” for a given situation. Redditors then (mostly) comment with YTA or NTA, meaning You’re The Asshole or Not The Asshole.

Usually people get a mix of comments, but the following thread, “AITA for cutting my sister out of my life for getting engaged to my worst highschool bully?” gave user /MightBeAnAsshole overwhelming support in the form of over 5,000 comments.

Here’s the set up…

Photo Credit: Reddit/AITA

So yeah, the bully is borderline psychotic.

Maybe one isolated incident of somebody getting hurt, but breaking an arm and a detached retina?

Nahhhh, that guy is no good.

Unfortunately, the guy’s sister fancied the bully.

Photo Credit: Reddit/AITA

And the parents don’t seem to be much help either.

Photo Credit: Reddit/AITA

As mentioned, reddit users were quick to swoop in and assure /MightBeAnAsshole that he was not, in any way, an asshole.

Because really, how could somebody’s family be okay with that past violence?

Photo Credit: Reddit/AITA

One user rightly pointed out again that the bully isn’t even sorry… which is nuts.

Photo Credit: Reddit/AITA

Yeah, remember… the sister IS A TWIN.

Photo Credit: Reddit/AITA

Some saw the sister’s point of view, but that still doesn’t make the guy an asshole

Photo Credit: Reddit/AITA

Some wanted the guy to remind the bully of their past deeds

Photo Credit: Reddit/AITA

As you can probably tell, I completely agree with the sentiments the other reddit users shared. There’s no reason why you have to keep somebody in your life who condones somebody who was physically or emotionally abusive to you. Or, in this case, both!!!

If people do reprehensible shit, they should pay some kind of consequence. And sometimes the best way to get back at them is completely deny them your time or attention.

This Woman Is Waging a Hilarious War Against Selfies

If you’ve never seen a picture of a person impersonating a cadaver and taking a picture of it, then you’re in luck! STEFDIES is a photo series by an anonymous woman who pretends to be, well, dead in photos.

And there’s a good reason for it!

The STEFDIES series reminds us we will one day die, like our face down figure. Hence seeing her in the photograph wakes up not only the image but us. We are given the opportunity to ‘die before we die’ and really take in the moment in the photo as we must in life. It is not about death, it is about life.

STEFDIES is a constant reminder of how precious life is. The breath inside is what we all ultimately seek.

So that’s fun!

You know what’s more fun? Her pictures!

1. Looks like London?

2. At a petting zoo!

3. A friend joining her for an art show!

4. Okay, that could actually be lethal…

5. Submerged

6. Outside Notre Dame

7. Clowning around!

8. Eiffel corpse!

9. Smashed on the rocks!

10. Under the Golden Gate bridge…

11. In Madrid!

12. At Disney World?

13. Enjoying a snack…

14. Parking lot probs…

15. Along the English countryside…

Check out her website here and Instagram here, and enjoy all that weirdness. You’ve earned it.

17 of the Toughest “Would You Rather” Questions Ever (with Answers)

This Ask Reddit roundup is going to be slightly different…

How? The Humans of Tumblr staff is actually going to answer ALL of these questions to give you some insight into our twisted minds.

The following answers are still anonymous. I may have answered some of these myself, but you’ll never know which.

Let’s get to it!

1. Would you rather have to sprint every time you use your legs no matter the distance, or have to yell anytime you want to say something?

Sprint every time.

I’d be in amazing shape and people would get used to it.

Nobody would ever get used to me yelling constantly.

2. Would you rather be a strawberry with human thoughts or a human with strawberry thoughts?

Both sound adorable! Who thought of this one?

But… human with strawberry thoughts.

I like being a human and I’d like to know what strawberries think. I don’t think being a strawberry with human thoughts would be that fun. And you wouldn’t be around for very long.

Idk, I’m probably overthinking it?

3. Speak every language fluently or play every instrument perfectly?

I would speak the shit out of those languages!

Tbh, I could care less if I can play any instrument if I can talk with anybody in the world! That would be amazing!

Sign me up!

4. Would you rather fight Mike Tyson once or talk like Mike Tyson for the rest of your life?

Hahaha, wtf? I guess fight him once?

I mean, I’d probably get royally fucked up, but I don’t want to have that lisp for the rest of my life. That’s worth getting pounded on for thirty minutes.

5. Always oral or never oral?

Never oral.

First and obvious reason.. I couldn’t have kids! And, tbh, in my experience… oral is overrated. But maybe that’s just been because of the people I’ve been with?

Idk… are we supposed to be answering questions like this at work? Is this allowed? lol

6. Cat with a human face or dog with human hands?

Wait, I’m confused. Is this me? Or my pet?

I guess if it were a pet… a cat with a human face because a dog with human hands would be trouble.

But if it were me, I’d want those hands. And dogs are cooler to be than cats. I want to be let outside to shit.

7. Cum every time you fart or fart every time you cum?

Cum every time I fart.

I mean, don’t fart that much, but having those feel amazing wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world.

And that’s a second secret I’d have if I let a silent, but deadly one loose.

Boom!

8. Would you rather give up access to the internet or give up access to motor vehicles?

So this is all access to all motor vehicles yeah?

Because if that’s the case, I’d still give them up. I can still ride a bike or a skateboard. It’d take me longer, but I’d be in better shape.

I for sure wouldn’t want to give up access to all of the world’s knowledge.

9. Get stuck at all red lights in traffic, or have incredibly slow internet (dial up slow) after dark?

Pfft, red lights for sure.

So what I have to wait another 30 seconds or so? Yeah, it might be frustrating, but there’s no way I’d want to have the internet by slow.

FUCK that.

10. Would you rather be on death row for a crime you didn’t commit, and the most important person in your life is free but they committed the crime… or be free, but the most important person in your life is on death row for a crime you committed?

Easy. I’d roam free.

Because if I’m enough of a psychopath to commit a crime like that, my conscience wouldn’t bother me if somebody else took the fall for it.

11. Kind of a spin-off but my friend once said “If you had to fuck 2 people and their combined age was 28, how old would each one be?”

14 and 14. Super gross, but the least horrible age to pick.

You know what’s just as weird? 14 is the minimum age to get married in 33 states in the United States with parental consent. Yeah….

12. Would you rather have hiccups for the rest of your life or constantly feel like you have to sneeze?

Feel like I have to sneeze.

I feel like I could get used to that, but if I was constantly hiccuping, that’s literally a loop the body goes through and it would drive me insane.

13. Would you rather have tastebuds on your fingertips or smell with your perineum?

No, I’m not going to smell everything with my taint.

Tastebuds on fingertips.

Next!

14. All songs exist but they are all performed by Pitbull, or only one Pitbull song exists but it’s performed by every artist with their own cover interpretation?

I happen to actually like Pitbull, so no judging! But I’d rather have one Pitbull song performed by everybody else. Lots of different ways that could go.

Variety is the spice of life, after all!

15. Would you rather know how you’re going to die or when you’re going to die?

When I’m gonna die.

That way I’d make the most of the time I had left and I’d be able to not worry about dying randomly.

16. Would you rather have everyone twice your age and older talk like an adult from Charlie Brown or everyone half your age and younger talk like a minion?

Kids talk like minions.

First, I don’t need to listen to kids that much. Second, I could get used to the minions language eventually.

17. Would you rather be ugly but smell amazing or be handsome/beautiful but stink?

Ugly but smell amazing.

There’s plenty of “ugly” people who live amazing lives.

And beauty is in the eye of beholder, right? RIGHT?!?!

Thank you staff! Those were certainly enlightening answers!

😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣

12 Bartender-Approved Liquors To Class Up Your Drinking Habits

Back when I was a young man, I admit I was a little intimidated every time I walked to the bar. What would I order? There are SO MANY ALCOHOLS!

15 People Reveal Their Most Embarrassing Moment With a Total Stranger

Oh reddit… you entertain us for hours and hours…

The question was this: What’s the most awkward situation you’ve ever been in with a stranger?

Listen, meeting new people is nothing new, and most of the time we can navigate all of that with relative ease. But what happens when things go south quick and we just can’t fucking even?

12,000+ comments later… we have these gems!

1. Dat ass!

I was at a bar with some friends watching a basketball game, and this guy kept asking me to check out his girlfriend every time she went away.

For example, when she got up to go outside for some air, he stayed in and was like: “Be honest, is that not the best butt you’ve ever seen?”

He did this several times. I felt so uncomfortable, and there’s no nice way of putting it — she wasn’t attractive whatsoever to me.

I’m glad that guy is happy with her, though.

2. Awkward, but necessary…

My boyfriend and I were with another friend and we were walking home from a movie.

We came across a guy sitting in a small patch of grass rocking back and forth. My boyfriend wanted to keep walking, but I felt the need to ask if he was okay. He immediately broke down and said he wanted to end it all. It turned into a really awkward situation because the other two didn’t know what to do.

We ended up sitting with him for a while as he broke down, and we called emergency services because he was apparently very far from home.

He eventually calmed down enough and we drove him to the hospital. He was very thankful once he was there and safe.

I still think about him every time I walk past that patch of grass, I really hope he is okay.

3. “I could be!”

On a trip to Orlando, my husband, son, and I spent some time in the swimming pool at our hotel.

There was a large family enjoying a family reunion at the hotel that week as well. They were a super nice family! We were all kind of hanging out together and our kids were playing.

Well, imagine my surprise when I watched my husband swim into the shallow end and wrap his arms around a woman standing there.

He burst out of the water and said, “Oh, you’re not my wife!” to the 50-something lady.

She said, “I could be!”

He has since had Lasik!

4. What. A. Dick.

A woman at a gas station didn’t know how to put air in her tires, so I helped her.

She called her husband on speaker phone to let him know she found some nice man to help her. Then, I heard him call her an idiot and say that I was only helping her because I wanted to get together with her.

She stammered and tried to explain that nothing was going on between us.

After she got off the phone, she looked at me as if her husband just caught her cheating. No thank you; nothing.

And for some reason, I felt guilty for even helping her out.

5. British things…

Not long ago, I made a short visit to the local supermarket on my usual dog walk.

My dog was tied up outside, and as I was crouched down to unclip him a woman came out of the shop and fell over me.

For a few brief seconds, I was sandwiched between my dog and an old woman.

We’re British though, so everyone looked embarrassed and we both said sorry.

6. Nose rip!

The most awkward moment of my life thus far was with a stranger. I was in a Quebec airport going through customs with my family. Because of some recent changes to their system, they didn’t have everyone in a line, but instead in a large pen where they would release around 50 people at a time.

When my family got to the front, they released us and everyone was running forward in a mass, trying to get to the kiosks. Next to me was a tall Swedish man trying to get his family a kiosk; he was running forward and waving his arm behind him in a “come on” motion, clearly frantic. Well, somehow his middle and pointer fingers went perfectly into my two nose holes.

As he then ripped his arm upwards to motion his family forward, my nose was also ripped forward, and I immediately began bleeding everywhere.

He looked at me in horror, and the customs agents looked at me in bewilderment. The language barriers made the situation all the more awkward!

7. Standing novation

It was my first time voting in a presidential election and my polling place was at a library.

When I got to the front of the line and started filling out the required papers, I mentioned that it was my first time and asked what to do next.

After hearing this, the woman who was working there raised her voice and said “Hey everyone, we’ve got a first-time voter here!”

She started clapping so they would all clap as well.

Nobody clapped, and I was just standing there really embarrassed before quietly saying, “Can I just go vote now?”

8. Pure fear!

One time, I was in a parking lot waiting to get into my friend’s dad’s car.

I saw a car that looked identical to the one I needed to get into, so I got into it.

It turned out, it was not the car I was supposed to be in.

The stranger’s expression of pure fear still pops into my head from time to time.

9. That amused sparkle…

This happened to me in Japan. I was in a clothing store and my wife was shopping.

Being the dutiful husband that I am, I remained silent and stayed out of the way, barely moving a muscle.

A little girl, maybe 4 years old, approached from one side and slipped her hand into mine.

I looked down. She must’ve thought “Wow, this mannequin’s hand is warm.” Then it clicked.

She looked up at me with such a look of terror.

In a flash, she was gone, and I hope she will forever remember with terror the amused sparkle in my eyes.

10. The gas station

When I was a teenager, my friends and I would spend the weekends staying up late playing video games and eating junk food. I was also a cross country runner, and on this particular night, I was experiencing some extreme chafing from a long run I took earlier that day.

While we were at the gas station getting Doritos and energy drinks, I announced to who I thought was my friend, “Man, my pecs really hurt.” Upon realizing it was a complete stranger with whom I had just shared this intimate detail, I simply stared at him and said, “You’re not my friend” and walked away.

I didn’t go back to that gas station for a long time.

11. Tickle, tickle, tickle…

My wife and I went out for a drink one night.

We walked into the bar and I immediately saw someone I knew. I walked up behind him and tickled his sides. It turned out, I didn’t know this person.

He just gave me a weird look and walked away. We got his spot at the bar though.

12. Hey franges!!

I had just pulled into a parking spot at the mall. I saw my friend and his girlfriend pull in a few spaces past mine.

Thinking it would be funny, I snuck up to their car and started slapping their window like a crazy person.

It turned out, it was not them in that car.

I still cringe years later remembering the look of pure terror on that poor girl’s face.

13. Deleted!

I was at a bar with my brother’s old phone.

A random girl asked me if she could use my phone to call her own because she had lost it. She began dialing her number and bam, right there on the screen is her name saved on my phone.

My brother’s contacts must have transferred when I took his phone. Her eyes got real big and she looked up at me with what could only be described as confused fear!

I tried to ask her if she knew my brother, to which she said she did, but she was obviously still weirded out.

She deleted her number from the phone and fled so fast.

14. You’re not my dad!

We were lining up for Disney’s Tower of Terror.

12-year-old me spent the entire lineup desperately trying to catch the attention of a cute guy who was there with his dad. I ended up sitting in the same car as him on the ride.

As the ride started, I grabbed my mom’s hand for support.

Near the end, I realized that my mom was on the other side of me and I’d been holding hands with the cute guy’s dad the entire time.

15. Cheese explosion!

During my first week at college as a freshman, I wandered into the cafeteria, still unsure of how things worked.

I spotted a pizza station and waited in line. I grabbed a slice of pizza with the pizza slice grabber, but the scalding hot pizza slid off and landed face down on the cute girl’s foot behind me.

Sauce and hot cheese explode everywhere up her leg. And since it was the end of summer, she was wearing sandals.

In a panic, I muttered “I’m so sorry,” and ran out of the cafeteria without eating for the rest of the day.

16. “Nevermind me!”

I worked at Old Navy and some lady was looking at men’s shirts.

She stopped me and held up a shirt to me, asking if I thought it would fit her son. I looked around and no one else was there.

We stood in silence for maybe 30 seconds before she started laughing and said, “Oh! Haha, you don’t know my son; he lives in Michigan. Nevermind me! Haha.”

And then she went and bought it.

Those were the cringiest, craziest stories!
