*IMPORTANT* Prohibited post topics *READ BEFORE POSTING*

658 Upvotes

Well hello, my fellow redditors!

In the last weeks, we had a lot of posts that were not reposted but were extremely similar to other posts on the same topics.

Due to this issue, we have decided to stop allowing posts about the following topics mentioned in the list:

•Parking mistakes

•Tipping fees

•Shrinkflation

•Price complaints

•Inflation

•Packaging being too big

•People falling for AI art

Posts that infringe on these rules will be taken down immediately and the user may be temporarily banned.

Also, note that this list is subject to change and will most likely be expanded as time passes so make sure to always check it before posting.

Henlo frens!

Good to see all of you here UwU.

Grab on to your bodypillows, I have a smol announcement about the purpose of this subreddit.

This community is meant as a fun, lighthearted place where we can commiserate with each other about those annoying little irritations that hinder our day to day enjoyment in life.

That means that suitable posts here can be about my children.

And things like a wall socket or tile being placed out of allignment. A crack in a phone screen. Duckling shit on your new car. Incomprehensible software. Mismatched buttons. You know, the little things.

This subreddit isn't meant to incite rage mobs that go after people. For that reason we say:

No reddit meta posts

No posts about being banned from subreddit. No posts about up- or down-votes. No posts about shitty moderators or users or subreddits. No posts about reddit.

All jokes and tomfoolery aside, that sort of thing gets us in trouble with site admins. If we allow one type of post about reddit it then very easily moprhs into allowing posts that directly call out other subreddits or users, we just can't allow any of it.

That rule already existed for years and we have just made it more clearly visible in the sidebar on old and new reddit. We're gonna be a little strict on it for a bit I'm afraid. 🥺

Thank you all for being awesome and have a very Merry Christmas! Celebrate Christmas in the traditional European way, with a suasage roll!

How are they not responsible if there’s rocks flying off their truck on the free way?

Failed an important test, then I was uninvited from the camping trip.

Failed an important test that makes a huge difference in my life. Also mildly infuriating, the test is a pass or fail not percentage based, I failed by three questions. Literally the only thing standing between myself and getting a job that I’ve wanted forever is this test. In my opinion it makes sense that I would be slightly depressed. My in laws go camping on holiday weekends and we are always invited and plan on going. I was uninvited because I might be sad. I haven’t even had a conversation with her yet for her to know that I’m upset. My husband only informed her that I failed.

For the low, low price of nearly a half million dollars, you can be the proud owner of this burnt out shell of a house. The American dream is alive and well, folks.

My son's doctor kept saying he was fine when he in fact has thrush

4.2k Upvotes

I think I said the words " are you sure?? " 3-4 times. She just kept saying he looks fine and to keep doing what I'm doing. His lips are visibly half white and peeling like crazy. Then she pulled out her laptop and googled thrush. Was pointing at pictures of white tongues and saying " see now that's what you need to look for " and " now you know ". I had to physically peel my son's lip up and say that's what this looks like though!! His gums and lips are covered in white. That made her eyes widen and she said " wait let me see that ". Rolled over and went " oh you're right. Let's put him on some Nystatin"... Excuse me??? You just spent 5 minutes patronizing me and slowly pointing at Google images of thrush like I'm stupid. Thanks lady.

Bonus was that the pharmacy chain I use had a complete system shutdown yesterday across the board so I can't even get his medicine till later today when it's ready.

Edit: removed a repeat sentence

My workplace learned nothing from COVID. New sick policy.

Post image
407 Upvotes

New sick policy came down from management. Previously, it was, "If you're sick, work from home or take the day off."

Now they want us to come in sick and infect everyone.

COVID-19 taught us nothing. I'm so disappointed in my bosses.

It's not illegal in my state. So this can only qualify as mildly annoying. Dog was pacing back and forth, not retained in any way, and completely freaked out.

They've been crossing from their driveway (where the gray gravel is) THROUGH my iris side garden and using my yard to get back to their driveway. I don't care if they use my side of the property but not at the expense of my flowers .. come on man, who does that :(

The bill for our daughters emergency flight

90k for a flight that was less than an hour. Still waiting to hear what insurance will cover. Worth it for my baby to have had the best care possible though.

Dropped $330 on a "new" vacuum cleaner on sale for Memorial Day

Drove 1.5 hours to a big box store, saw that one of the vacuum cleaners one our list of potential buys was on sale for more than $100 off! Drove home, cut the box open, and started unpacking. My first clue something was off was the dust covering the brush rolls. Continued to unpack and found I spent over $300 for a used vacuum. So thank you to whoever reboxed this used vacuum to still look new from the outside so that I could waste my time and money on it.
