These People Were So Brutally Honest That You Just Have No Choice But To Respect It

In an era of internet catfishing and Fake News, you truly never know anymore if someone is telling the truth. And it’s not just people on the internet who lie all the time. It seems like everyone has a hidden agenda, and are prepared to lie to your face to get what they want.

So it can actually be pretty refreshing when someone is brutally honest. The truth might hurt, but at least you know you’re not getting played. We all know those 1-800 numbers are scams, but finally, someone admitted to it.

Laugh Or Cry

It’s clear that this poor man is having a rough go, and the only way to get any help from strangers is to play the sympathy card. He probably had to set aside every ounce of pride to write that sign.

Let’s hope that none of his ex-wife’s family drives past him.

Finally, Someone Said It

Why have we, as a society, just sat back and accepted terrible hand dryers in bathrooms for so long? It has been decades and we still act like the soft bathroom air blowing on our hands is actually doing anything.

The only reason we keep using them is that it takes four sheets of paper towel to dry your hands. There’s no winning.

Kids Have No Chill When It Comes To Old People

A teacher tasked her classroom of kids to write letters to the local retirement residence, and the results prove that kids have absolutely no filter. All they had to do was draw a flower and smiley face and call it a day. These letters are a reminder that I’d rather kick the bucket than end up having the next generation take care of me.

This Is A Hoarder’s Paradise

I don’t understand the obsessive yard-sale people. They think they’re getting such incredible deals, but in reality, we all know it’s junk.

Unless you’re one of the lucky few who stumbles onto an old Louisville Slugger signed by Babe Ruth that a mom foolishly threw out, then you’re just buying someone else’s junk.

It Sounds Like A Heck Of A Deal

I was already suspicious when I started reading this box spring. No stains or bed bugs sound too good to be true.

Then you find out there’s been one death. You can’t just say that with no explanation. Did someone die peacefully in their sleep? Or was someone murdered? The answer will greatly affect my decision.

Don’t Get Your Expectations Up At The Carnival

Everyone has always known that carnivals rig their games, but this woman’s booth is just owning up to it. I’m a four-time champion at my family’s summer cornhole tournament, yet I’ve only ever won a small teddy bear at the carnival’s Ski-ball. That’s no coincidence.

Let’s Check Back In On Frankie In 15 Years

Kids don’t come up with these things themselves. Frankie here has definitely heard his mom tell his old sister that she’ll have to start paying rent unless she gets a job and starts contributing around the house.

Frankie obviously just took it to heart and assumed he was a freeloader too. Only time can be the judge of that.

Caller ID Finally Did Its Job

The real phone scam is the fact that I pay an extra $5 a month for caller ID and it still comes up ‘Blocked’ when a telemarketer calls. I believe that phone companies and telemarketers are working together to annoy their customers.

I’m not sure what special phone plan this person is on, but I want it.

Finally, A Realistic Beauty Standard

Thanks to fast fashion and online shopping, you’re now more likely than ever to get ripped off when you buy online. People want to know they’re getting what they pay for, and this ridiculous inflatable swan-thing is exactly what you expect. Bravo to whoever makes this product.

She’s Been Waiting For Months To Use That Line

Getting ghosted is never fun, but sometimes the sting of upfront rejection can hurt even more. This breakup line is easily the best way to let someone down.

Even though it might be embarrassing, this person will see the humor in it eventually, and it will make a fun first date story.

You Can Cut Me Off At Any Time

I’ll admit that I can have some bad road rage. Don’t we all? Even though I’d never do anything to hurt someone else, I’m quick to curse and flip the bird if someone cuts me off in heavy traffic.

But if this person did it, I’d accept their license plate’s apology and move on. I hate getting cut off, but at least they knew in advance that it would happen.

At Least I Won’t Have High Expectations

I can’t even count the number of times that I ended up disappointed because I ordered Chinese takeout from the place claiming to have the best spring rolls in town. Spoiler: they never have the best spring rolls. At least if I ordered from Ok Chinese Food, I know what I’m getting.

That’s One Way To Get People To Be Careful

I’m sure anyone skiing from a peak like this is an expert, but people can still slip up and forget their basic safety standards. This sign is a harsh reminder that when you get yourself into trouble, other people have to clean up the mess.

You’re sacrificing someone else’s Sunday family dinner just so that they can rescue you.

Teachers Are Our Future

Everyone says they don’t have any faith in the next generation, but if they’re learning from teachers like this, they’ll do just fine. Millennials grew up with ridiculous optimism because they believe everyone is a winner and that everyone needs to be your friend.

Now, kids will grow up with a realistic view of how harsh the world really is.

This Is Me When I Buy Avocados

I always show up at the grocery store with such good intentions. I go at the beginning of the week when I’m convinced I can eat healthy for seven days straight. Then Thursday hits and I order a pizza, and by the time Sunday rolls around, all the produce I bought has gone bad. It’s an endless cycle.

I Prefer The Term ‘Lazy Sponge’

No one goes to the museum of natural history to check out the sponges in the geology hall. We’re there to see the dinosaur bones and Egyptian mummies.

This museum has finally accepted the fact that their sponges aren’t the museum money makers, and labeled them accordingly.

I’d Accept Spit In My Food For 10% Off

I think every restaurant should have a sign like this. When you get seated at that center table with no leg room that’s right on the path between the dining room and the kitchen, you know it’s going to be a bad meal.

At least a sign like this will inspire you to drown out all the noise and enjoy your 10% off meal.

Now You Don’t Have To Sift Through All The Other Ugly Stuff To Find The Sweaters

The ugly sweater trend has blown up in the last few years, and thrift stores are the best place to find authentic ones. Unfortunately, thrift stores are one of the most stressful places on earth. It’s complete chaos, and if you don’t have patience, you’re doomed.

Whatever thrift store did the dirty work and gathered all the ugliest sweaters is the real MVP.

We All Know Blue Raspberry Isn’t A Real Flavor Anyways

I’m so tired of candy companies trying to act like their snacks are somewhat healthy. It doesn’t matter if they have 100% real fruit juice in them, it’s still packed with sugar and artificial flavors.

It’s refreshing to see these candy buttons admitting that they have zero nutritional value and are 100% artificial.

This Might Be A Little Too Much Honesty

It’s nice to see this frat house following the law and making sure everyone drinking is of age. But the lines get a little blurry when they say “18-ish” to sleepover. I think we can all agree to remove the “ish,”

Maybe also write “18 and able to consent to sleeping over,” but I guess that might be to much text to fit on that sign.
