For the record I don’t mean bullying strangers is okay. I mean if someone is kinda toxic towards me online and I have time that day, I will happily engage in a bit of back and forth. It’s weird and probably unhealthy but I find it funny most of the time to just argue with people online.
It is a dick move to ask someone to marry you for example during sport game on jumbo screen where thousand and thousands of people are staring at your partner EXPECTING them to say yes.
Im really curious about this. Do people actually mean it when they say "im sorry for your loss" after some random person on the internet wrote that a realtive/friend of them died? Most of the time this just feels like a side information to me, but the comments all start with some kind of condolences. With that logic i wouldnt be able to stop feeling sorry, because people loose their loved ones every other second around the world. I am aware that i dont have much empathy, so i am not really sure about this.
The same goes for news of people dying (like natural disasters, plane crashes or terrorism). If noone is involved that i know, i am not fazed by it at all.
She is no longer a stranger to us.
This morning I was out for a walk with my two dogs. Now it's important for context that you understand how pretty my dogs are. They are both rescue husky mixes that look fairly unusual and have really beautiful blue eyes. It's not out of the ordinary for people to stop me and ask about them, compliment them, and want to pet them. Having these ridiculously gorgeous dogs has somewhat desensitized me to people yelling out of car windows and across streets because maybe three times a week someone will yell a dog-compliment at us.
So we were walking along the sidewalk when a man working on some new construction across the street yelled, "Oh my God, I love your doggers!"
I gave him a big smile and yelled back, "Thanks! Wanna say hi?" He looked slightly surprised but smiled and started walking over. When he crossed the street he was suddenly acting a bit awkward and not really paying much attention to the dogs. I had them sit so maybe he'd feel comfortable petting them, but honestly I was... keep reading on reddit ➡
Point is not to spend time on average or above average when you have the best already out there. So, help us in finding those gems
Please explain why flying ghost magikarp has gone missing...
Alot of people asked me to post some more stories after I posted my last one. But I didn't know which one to do. Ive for a good amount of then however alot of them aren't as bad as the ones I've already told. But this one is probably one of the worst.
Please note I can't remember exactly what was said but I'm putting it into what I think they said.
Due to me working in a supermarket I meet a lot of different people and most of them are incredibly nice and respectful however, I also see alot of Karen and Male Karen's? (Unsure of the name they have) and that is exactly who this story is about.
It was midweek and I was working the tills when a man (Entitled dad) and his son approached and began loading on their shopping. And they had alot of shopping. After scanning their items I told them the amount (I think it was around £145 and the ED began rummaging round in his wallet and pulling out notes of money. After counting it all out it turns out he was a few pounds short and decided his... keep reading on reddit ➡
At the start of fallout 4,the vault-tec guy who knocks on your house and asks for your information (SPECIAL Stats and name) has the same fedora and suit as the mysterious stranger.
So I just got off the phone with the police because a week and a half ago I was chatting with a girl on reddit. Eventually we exchanged instagram accounts after which she asked if I wanted to have video sex on hangouts. She's a pretty girl and we had a good time. Or so I thought...
This afternoon I received a message from her saying she recorded everything and she wants me to pay €500 or else she'd send the video to all my contacts. I'm not the guy to start to panic so I called the police for advice. They told me to block her so that she can't send me threats anymore so that's what I did. I came up with the idea to post on my social media that if anyone receives a video of me to not open it because I am being blackmailed.
But to do that I first had to inform my parents. So i'm calling my mom. She says i'm very dumb but she appreciates me informing her. She then passes the phone to my father so I can explain myself to him. He asks if i'm just naked on the video, or if i'm performing a... keep reading on reddit ➡
This happened earlier today and I'm worried I've turned into an inconsiderate AH. TLDR at the bottom. Written on mobile.
I live behind a popular station and cars normally park on my road to commute to work or to pick-up people from the station. Because of this parking is limited, causing some people to park illegally across drive ways or on double yellow lines.
Before the lockdown this one woman took to parking on our private driveway while she waited for her friend. The driveway is obviously part of my garden but directly behind the station.
Each time she did it I asked her not to cause we need our parking space and its our private property. She would tell me she wouldn't be long and would normally be gone after 10mins. I've caught her doing this 3 times and seen her on our security system 11 times.
Today, I left in the car to pick up my daughter from nursery. When I returned she was waiting for her friend in my driveway. I flashed my headlights but she indicated that she wo... keep reading on reddit ➡
I’m on mobile so I’m sorry for formatting. Also I’m sorry if this doesn’t fit this sub, I didn’t know where else to post.
I (31M) was at the grocery store today and while I was checking out the man in front of me, probably in his 50s, got into a verbal altercation with the the person behind the register who was a teenage boy. It escalated and the man went behind the register and got in the cashiers face. I intervened and told the man to fuck off.
The thing is I was nervous. I’m 6’3” and around 250lbs, and probably twice this mans size, but I was so nervous. My hands started to shake as the man started to confront me instead of the cashier. Another employee intervened and the man went to speak to the manager, but when I was done checking out he decided to start following me out of the store. He started berating me for nosing into his business, mocked me for shaking, and invited me to go outside with him. I called the police at that point and the man left.
I feel like an idiot. I k... keep reading on reddit ➡
2 or 3 weeks ago, I was running by myself (I’m a young woman) at 7:30 am by Third Beach when a woman (person A) stopped me and complimented my jacket. She started asking me personal questions like my name, where I live, etc. which made me very uncomfortable. She got progressively aggressive and asked if I would run with her (the opposite way I was running mind you) and I said no to which she replied, that’s ok I’ll just follow you. She had crazy eyes and would not leave me alone for several minutes. She also was standing super close to me, as if she had never heard of COVID before (ew).
Luckily, a woman (person B) ran by, so I caught up with her and explained the situation and asked if I could run with her. As we’re talking I turn around, and person A is chasing us, yelling wait, asking for a cellphone, saying that she’s trying to get away from me and asking person B to run with her alone. Person B is an angel, tells person A that she’s my friend and we’re running together. Eventuall... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'm pretty easy-going and whenever I need help, I often stop and ask for directions. I have also been known to give compliments if I like an article of clothing on a stranger. If we're waiting in line, I try to strike up a conversation too.
However, it has never happened to me. Not that I go out seeking for it or anything.
Has anyone ever just stopped you randomly in the middle of the street?
Important Edit: I didn't expect it to blow up that much, or people to take it that seriously. This story was originally written as taking place in Germany. I don't live in Germany, I just picked this country to not disclose where I leave. The rest of the events are real, though. Apologies to those that apparently got offended that I spread "dangerous lies" about their county. (if you didn't get this intro, check the comments)
I am living in a rural part of a Central European country I cannot disclose (apologies for my English), next to a fairly large forrest (I apologize for not being able to give you the exact location, this is a throwaway and I'd like it to stay anonymous). For the past two nights, strangers riding a black minivan without license plates are wandering around my house at 12-2 o'clock at night. At this point I've started being very worried about this situation, especially since these guys pass in front of my house three or four times in a row for like 10 minutes,... keep reading on reddit ➡
Obligatory didn't just happen, but 8 years ago.
Be me, 18, girlfriend at the time just started uni, she was moving up North to stay in a student apartment. Wanted me to "come and meet the gang". I have terrible social anxiety.
So I get up there, and obviously the night starts with drinks. They're all poor students so drinks in the apartment. Drinking games ensue.
Now, I'm awkward and don't really know how to start a decent chat with a stranger, so what do I do?.. I hit the hard liquor... hard.
Anyone ever played that game "Roxanne"? Where you listen to Roxanne by The Police and drink when he says Roxanne.. I start this with straight vodka. Now it was BYOB so I'd brought a 70cl of vodka with me which I intended to share, did I? Nah man, I drank it within 40 ish minutes of arriving.
The last thing I recall of that night was shuffling cards.
I woke up next morning. In a bed. Really comfy, my first thought:
"Fuck I'm comfy.... Where the fuck am I?"
I roll over and see my girlfri... keep reading on reddit ➡
