Had a guy I use to work with that everyone picked on. The boss treated him like absolutely crap and belittled him in front of the other employees. The guy is really really weird and awkward, there's no denying that....but I always treated him nicely.

His first Christmas there, he came over and gave me a $50 gift card to Best Buy and thanked me for being nice to him.

I use to talk to him a lot at work and he told me he was adopted from India, one of like 15 kids his family adopted. He has no friends, none of his family really talks to him besides his dad who lives in NY, he eats out every day because he can't cook. My wife loves to bake so she baked him some cupcakes for his birthday. I brought them to him at work and he started crying. He's a 48 year old man and he started crying because I brought him cupcakes for his birthday. It was heartbreaking.

He left the job years ago and to this day, he still calls me for advice and text me all the time. He's a bit of a pain in the butt but he's a good guy and I try to give him some of my time.

*EDIT Wow, my first ever gold. Thank you to whoever did that :)

**EDIT 2 Thank you for the kind words, I really appreciate it, honestly. Just remember, it only takes a second to say "hi" to someone. To ask someone how their day is going. To say "good morning". You never know how much that can mean to someone.

Girl put her number in my yearbook nearly 20 years ago. It hit me like last Tuesday that she might've actually wanted me to call her...

Edit: It's officially my headcanon that it was that very girl that gilded this comment.

The amount of money pissed away on awards could've paid his bills easily. SMH

My wife and I couldn’t get our newborn baby to stop crying at the restaurant, so we embarrassingly started to pack up to go home when the couple sitting next to us offered to hold him so we could enjoy a night out. Our baby slept on this kind strangers shoulder the entire evening! by humansof in HumansBeingBros

I bet you've never in your life:

  • complained about a meal you chose to order because you ordered that meal
  • complained about work because you chose to go to work that day
  • complained about a job because you chose to work at that company
  • complained about a living situation because every day you make the decision not to move is a day you chose to continue living there
  • complained about the political situation of the country you choose to live in

I could keep going, but I don't think I need to.

As much as people shit on the AT&T brand, at the end of the day these folks are just doing their job. I've been yelled at too many times for things completely out of our control(yay past retail life!)

5 bucks says the lady had a question about her facebook account. Was in their store one day and this Karen-esque lady was berating a worker for not knowing about Facebook. I made a comment because I was in shock,
"Lady, you know this is AT&T, not Facebook, right?"
"I bought the phone here! They should know this."
"And when my car breaks, I take it to a mechanic, not the sales person."

Fortunately she settled down and that is the end of the story but I just couldn't understand her logic. The employee thanked me after she left.

  1. These kids are in holding because their parents/guardians are being arrested for illegally crossing the border. In the United States, when an adult is arrested their children aren’t arrested with them. These children need to be kept somewhere. They are given food, water and beds to sleep in. They are able be visited by their parents or at the very least communicate with them via iPads and the like.

  2. I hope you were just as upset about this when the last president was doing it. Obama (I forget his last name) built those “cages”.

The situation is obviously less than ideal and no one on either side wants this, but it makes far more sense than the alternative. If we really want to put a stop to this, we need to stop incentivizing illegal immigration.

Edit: I’m being downvoted for telling the truth.
