30 times people said stupid things on the internet… and got caught out!

If you hang around the internet for too long, especially in the comments sections of mainstream websites and social media, you're bound to come across comments that have been posted by people who you'd normally assume would have trouble working out how to turn a computer on without banging their heads on it. Here are a few.

The internet isn't just gifs of cats falling over

Although it certainly seems like it is. There's another side to people online, a much more FML side. Even though they don't realise it at the time, some people should think before clicking on send. Or sitting down to type. Or buying a computer and/or smartphone. Here's a few examples of situations that got out of hand, things you really didn't want to know or headline news that didn't go unnoticed by our team.


1 - Come on dude, get the message already.


2 - Not the best example of a LinkedIn profile, the movie is about a crook you doofus!


3 - Not a national holiday, not a time be a-celebratin'!


4 - Let me Google that for you.


5 - Liberials, the inhabitants of Liberia?


6 - The Fox News Science page. The SCIENCE page.


7 - Deep thinkers have it hard. Not shrinked though!


8 - He wanted the D, show some compossion.


9 - Mental Health awareness doesn't sound right in this context, black hat dude.


10 - Cue "I'll be there for you" and one lonely umbrella.


11 - Some people can't even steal tweets without messing up.


12 - Yep, posting this in a group where the author also posts was a great idea.


13 - Someone called for a Nice Guy?


14 - Actor (famous in his own mind) goes into a monologue. Loses.


15 - Slave labour is alive and well and living in London.


16 - Otherwise, in Ivanka's world…


17 - Ubermensch is a thing, no women allowed.


18 - Self deprecation can be cute. Self harming is just wrong.


19 - Homeschooled by a parent who doesn't understand social security numbers? This kid is going places. Dark places.


20 - Quit your bullshit, dad.


21 - Bad review, badass staff.


22 - Sometimes, someone will comment something that makes no sense and will cause you to fall off your chair.


23 - This is a very bad attempt at drawing people into a half-assed pyramid scheme. Don't do it, kids!


24 - Weed ain't no drug. Delete me.


25 - No. No. No. No. There IS a limit.


26 - Soups all look the same.


27 - Faith-based maths. 


28 - Screengrabbing a stranger's selfie: always edit out the search bar!


29 - They'd not spoken in 10 years… why impart this information?


30 - Saving the best for last: our pet peeve is unoriginal questions from horndogs.

 
We need a drink after reading all of those.

The fact that these people are out there, that they exist, that they probably have a right to vote, drive cars, have children, well… it doesn't bode well for the future, does it? Of course, we're playing at being condescending, and everyone is allowed a little slip up from time to time, especially on line. But come on, pull yourselves together. We'll never come together as one and explore inner and outer space at this rate. Peace.

IMO, in the customer / toilet / shop owner / phone call / rape story, the shop owner is at fault. I don't have all the story, but it seems the customer only asked for the toilet. The customer couldn't know what the call was about and implying he politely asked the shop owner could have just said "sorry this is an important call blablabla" ; no need to yell immediately. Of course it implies the customer was polite ; but my point is the single fact the shop owner was on phone for a (very) sensitive topic doesn't make the customer automatically in the wrong.

A lot of these could be avoided if people just used the handy dandy block button. Not excusing their behaviour but sometimes ignoring just isn't enough.
