In fact, these 11 women came together to share the most spiteful things they’ve done after a breakup, and you should honestly take notes (or just highlight and screengrab a bunch) because these are straight-up inspirational.

Read on for 11 stories of the most mic-drop ways to cope with being single again.

Parents Are Sharing Successful Instances of Reverse Psychology and It’s Honestly Inspiring

image

My parents used reverse psychology on me all the time and I think that’s why I grew up into a nerd of an adult who loves books and is always eating vegetables. Since I was their oldest child, I’m kind of impressed by my parents in retrospect — but it seems they instinctively knew the most effective way to get me to do anything was telling me to do the absolute opposite.

Even through my teenage years, my mom and dad quickly realized the best way to get me to stay in on weekends was to tell me they really, really wanted me to go out and be with my friends. In my head, I’d always be like, “Why don’t they want me here though?” and figure out a reason to stay — much to their surprise delight.

So, when parents got together on reddit to share their proudest moments of successful reverse psychology, we knew they’d be creative, hilarious, and even insightful.

Read on for some of our favorite ways parents used reverse psychology on their kids and save some tips to use on yours.

1

Kids won’t eat their veggies?

2

Too much energy? Play this game.

3

Is your kid afraid of shots? Try this.

4

Tired of constant boo boos?

5

Teach your kids not to procrastinate from an early age.

6

Use the “I bet you can’t do that” approach.

People Are Sharing the Most "Michael Scott" Things Their Bosses Have Done and We Want to Leave Work to Watch 'The Office'

image

Having Michael Scott from The Office as your boss would be… interesting with a touch of cringe, if we were to imagine working a day at Dunder Mifflin. From Michael’s undeniable sincerity (and oblivion to office etiquette) to his unwavering company loyalty, he really embodied workplace leadership in his own very unique way. 

Recently, people got together on reddit to share the most Michael Scott things their own bosses have done, and they’re making us want to walk out of work to binge The Office for the rest of the day. 

Read on for 11 times bosses proved they were worthy of Michael Scott’s World’s Best Boss mug. 

1

When he made an employee’s funeral super duper awkward.

2

When he effectively made this employee Jim Halpert.

3

When he was upset his employees weren’t sufficiently impressed with him.

4

When he went through a round of fake fires.

5

When he brought a Tinder date to watch him get promoted.

6

When they started their own version of the Dundies.

7

When he used an egg timer to keep conversations to under five minutes.

8

When he revealed his undying love for ice cream.

9

When he’s lowkey gross to women.

10

When he wanted all the employees to hang out with him.

11

When they overshare at work.

People Are Sharing Personal Unsolved Mysteries and It's Turning Us All Into Sleuths

image

Have you ever lost something in your room and had it turn up in, say, the kitchen trash can? These trivial — yet trippy — occurrences are enough to pretty much blow our minds and have us calculatedly retracing steps all day, like we’re detectives who were just assigned to solve our own mysteries.

These stories are a bit more baffling than that — or, we should say, most of them are. From a library card disappearing right before the librarian’s eyes to inexplicable visits from strangers who leave photos of themselves behind, the internet came together on reddit to share incidents so confusing, they’ve been trying to account for them for years.

Read on for 25 stories so mysterious, they’ll leave you searching for your magnifying glass (hint: it’s not where you last placed it).

1

We demand an explanation!

2

They disappeared just as suddenly as they appeared.

3

This person’s asking all the serious questions.

4

Houdini hangs out in public libraries?

5

Is this daughter in cahoots with mom’s secret admirer?

6

Inexplicable meteorology.

7

Terrifyingly confusing.

8

Mystery playing card?

9

For me, the real mystery involves this emergency axe.

10

Did the mom never believe it or was she just too scared of the possibility?

11

Hello, Brandy.

12

The further from home, the more mysterious the encounters.

13

Decade-old ocular mystery.

14

Red Hot Chili Peppers? Really?!

15

Disappearing Mario

16

Maybe someone at the violations office has a crush!

17

This makes zero sense whatsoever.

18

How does one even get there?

19

The 3AM detail adds a bit of creepy to this already confusing tale.

20

Maybe they saw an actual dragon-dragon.

21

This *is* mysterious! How does one manage to bed a longtime crush?

22

I once found $500 in a house I was moving into, so perhaps I just solved it.

23

This brings toilet paper frustrations to a whole new level.

24

Sounds at least like an *advanced* calculus teacher to us.

People Are Sharing the Dumbest Things They Believed as Children and It's Hilarious

image

The best part about being a father is that it gives you a chance to be a kid again. You get to see things through a child’s eyes again. All of the wonderment, the curiosity, the excitement of things that you’ve become numb to, you get to experience enthusiasm for all over again.

It’s a truly great feeling and it never gets old, which is why I’m always stoked when I can finally close my laptop for the day and get to wrestle with my son and give my daughter raspberries on her belly while answering the incessant “What’s that?” and “Why?” questions.

It also makes me realize just how profoundly dumb I was as a kid about the most basic things about the world. For example: I thought all TV was live as a child. So when Michael Jackson debuted “Remember the Time” on television, I was deeply troubled.

image

You see, I thought that the King of Pop was, non-stop, performing the music video beat by beat, note by note, and step by step every time it was on television and I expressed to my mother that I felt bad for the singer, because when did he have time for his family and friends, or to just get some rest? Plus the massive amounts of stress associated with doing it the same way, and perfectly, with enthusiasm, every single time? It seemed way too much for a single individual to bear.

So when someone posed this very relatable question on Twitter, asking other people on the platform what the dumbest things they believed as children were, I was immediately interested. Lo and behold, there were other people who thought like me.

imageimage

And a lot more who had completely different ideas of their own. Kids might say the darndest things, but they also think the darndest things. I mean, if you don’t have anyone around to tell you otherwise, how else would you make sense of the wackiness we’re exposed to on a daily basis?

imageimage

The same guy provided some other hilarious childhood thoughts he had, but he wasn’t the only one. There were some people who provided some, uh, interesting ideas about the structure of their family growing up.

image

I can’t blame her though, when I was a kid, I wanted to “marry” my older brother because I thought that getting married just meant you lived in a house with somebody who was slightly abusive towards you and the two of you got to share money.

image

If you grew up in a religious household like mine, then the concept of bad things happening to you because you were misbehaving or not listening to what your parents were telling you to do is very, very real.

image

I find it hard to fault Marco above here, pickles and cucumbers don’t taste anything alike. Do they look exactly the same? Yes. Is one in a jar filled with brine? Absolutely. On a completely unrelated note, I wonder what a pickle plant would look like if if actually existed…

image

I know there’s a ton of you out there reading this one and thinking to yourself going, “Wait, it’s not?” No, it isn’t. It just “distracts” other drivers behind you. I remember wanting to keep the light on as a child trying to play my Gameboy (it didn’t have a backlight) and my parents barking at me to shut it off because they didn’t want to get a ticket. All of those wasted hours sitting with my imagination, when I could’ve been playing Kirby’s Dreamland! Ugh!

image

Yes, there were throngs of children who believed that if they swallowed seeds they would look like something out of the movie Annihilation. I’d imagine it had something to do with parents not wanting their kids to choke and die, so they told a terrible lie instead to not deal with the potential of that happening.

image

Oof, this one is probably knocking the wind out of a lot of people. When you’re a child you have all of these dreams of freedom and that you’re going to go out into the world and do whatever it is you want when you’re an adult. Which you totally can do, it’s attainable, it just take a butt-ton of work and ingenuity in order to get to that point.

image

I’m not going to lie, this one depresses me to no end. I miss staying up late trying to rage into the night because I wanted to squeeze every ounce of excitement and beauty from the day when I was a child. Now, when I’m an adult and I face something that inconveniences me slightly, all I want is to just go to sleep. LAME.

image

I’m going to go out on a limb here and say this one isn’t anywhere near as relatable as the others on this list. I mean what else are those little black nubs on the hood of a car for? I pointed those out right away when I was a kid and remember asking my mom what two perfectly symmetrical bugs were doing sitting on the hood our whip.

image

Man, the moon can be such a stalker, right? An honest mistake, especially when you haven’t gotten to learning about the solar system in class. As for this dude below who to thought that all dogs were boys and all cats were girls, though…

image

I see you, and I know exactly where you’re coming from. What are some of the dumbest things you used to believe when you were a kid? Here I’ll drop another one: after finding out pro-wrestling was staged, that the performers knew how to “fall” in certain ways that made sure they didn’t get hurt.

People Are Sharing the Lies They Kept Up for Years and Honestly It's a Lesson in Commitment

image

If you’re old enough to be reading the internet, you’ve definitely told a regrettable lie before. Maybe it was back in high school when you said you were going to some movie to get your parents off your back, but were actually hanging out with friends. Or maybe you just casually mentioned something in passing to impress a significant other, but now it’s five years later and they’re still bugging you to serenade them with your concert-level clarinet skills. 

Whatever your white lie is or was, it’s probably hilarious if you’ve managed to keep it going for this long. At least it is to me and to the internet. To prove it to you, we’ve collected some hilarious stories of people who went to great lengths to keep up their inconsequential lies.

1

At least this shows how much he cares.

2

Brandon sounds like an amazing person.

3

He probably played “Chopsticks” on repeat.

4

5

Of course, they could have practiced the weather — but what would be the fun in that?

6

You can get away with a lot if you act like you’re entitled to it.

7

In my school, you’d have been better off saying you didn’t.

8

Nearly 40 and the parents still don’t know.

9

I’d love to follow this guy around for a few days.

10

Oh, she’s 21 in do— I mean, daughter… years…?

11

I can personally never remember whether people do or don’t wear glasses.

12

Parental statutes of limitations are a real thing!

13

Honestly, who even *is* the bassist for the Goo Goo Dolls?

14

He should say it was a phase.

15

Oof, no one could have predicted how this would go down.

16

I mean, just LOOK AT THEM.

17

I don’t know, every German person I know speaks better English than me.

People Are Sharing Why They Broke Up With the Partners They Thought They'd Marry

image

If you’ve considered having a forever-partnership with your significant other, you probably think you know a lot about them. First of all, you’re probably wrong (sorry). But even still, you guys probably go together like peanut butter and jelly, considering you’ve been together all this time and want a future and maybe children and a house, etc. 

So it might interest you to read about other people, people who weren’t as lucky in love as you are, who ended up breaking up with the person they thought was their “one” and opening up to reddit about their tales. Come on, who doesn’t love to read about the romantic misfortunes of people online? 

For the most part, these stories will probably have you thinking GOOD RIDDANCE, even though you know deep down that none of these writers would be who they are today if it hadn’t been for these insane stories that shaped them. Crazy how the world works, huh?

1

The impulsive cheater.

2

The engagement ring thrower.

3

The unbothered liar.

4

The over-involved mom.

5

The girl who fell in love with the best friend.

The would-be Thanksgiving guest.

7

This piece of trash.

8

The “one day” dude.

9

The army distraction.

10

The Disney adorer.

11

The guy who’s obsessed with preexisting conditions.

12

The guy who didn’t love her, plain and simple.

13

The accident survivor.

14

The gaslighting abuser.

15

The dude from the wrong caste and religion.

16

The obsessive control freak.

17

The high school sweethearts.

People Are Sharing Photos of Their Unusual Body Parts, and the Internet Is Amazed

There’s hardly a more debatable and subjective topic than appearance. Tastes differ so much when it comes to what people look like and what’s considered beautiful. Yet for some people, nature had a secret plan hidden up its sleeve. It defined that these people would be unique and outstanding no matter whether it was in style or not.

We at Bright Side value human diversity. After all, this is what makes the world such an interesting and pretty place. Have a look at people who perfectly showcase their “imperfections.”

1. Chameleon mode

2. Legolas, is that you?!

3. Grabbing all he wants isn’t a problem for this guy indeed!

4. Some of us need makeup to stand out — he was born that way.

5. Who said toe rings were out of style?

6. Guess this guy did…

7. Third nipple’s a charm!

8. At least you can save some money at your nail salon!

9. No hair dye needed with a style like that and a clear blue eye to boot.

10. Who couldn’t see the whole world in these?

11. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5…wait!

12. What are you made of, dude?

13. It’s really hard for this man to keep his nose out of someone else’s business!

14. Her loved one would spend a long time counting birthmarks on her beautiful body!

15. Waardenburg syndrome causes deafness and changes in pigmentation, in this case it’s eye color.

16. This could be an awesome add-on to the dwarf company. Anyone shooting a new LoTR movie yet?

17. Black & white — a perfect match without any mascara at all.

18. These ears were made to hear I love you!

We’re totally amazed with these wonderful body peculiarities and even more proud of the people who aren’t afraid to show them. Being unique should be considered an advantage, not a flaw.

Which body part did you find the most unusual? Maybe you have one of your own? Please share in the comments!

People Are Sharing the Dumbest Things They Ever Got Grounded for and It's Making Us Love Our Parents

image

Oh, the good old days of childhood. It’s wild to think there was a time before 9-to-5’s, bills and the other daily annoyances of being a grown-up. Once upon a time, life just consisted of occasional homework, summer vacation, and having your parents pay for your existence. Those were the glorious days.

But then there were those not-so-nostalgic parts of growing up, like when homework went from simple worksheets to hours and hours of essays and papers. Or curfews, which were like — why can’t I just hang out with my friends forever? Everyone had their own house rules, no matter how bizarre their families were.

And breaking those rules often resulted in punishment, another part of childhood I really don’t miss. It seemed sometimes like parents just wanted to find any reason to discipline us, no matter how arbitrary those reasons might have been.

People banded together on reddit to share their stories of times their parents got mad at them for the dumbest reason. This list will make you laugh, and might even make you grateful you didn’t grow up in houses like these.

1

What did you— look that up or something?

2

Welcome to the house I grew up in.

3

But Mom, these are YOURS!

4

Don’t you love household misogyny?

5

“That’s impossible!”

6

Oh no, these are just tragic.

7

No boys allowed!

8

Ugh, I remember getting yelled at for a 97.

9

Because: pregnancy.

10

Nope, you didn’t hurt your foot.

11

Pepsi? On the … roof? What an accusation!

12

People, do your research!

13

Classic pre-internet mom.

14

I *swear* I was looking for the cat.

People Are Sharing Red Flags They Discovered in Partners Years into Their Relationships

image

Relationships are about as interesting as they are tricky. Most of us end up meeting someone we’re particularly compatible with, then fall madly in love and start planning our lives in a big-picture way, overlooking and often ignoring small details.

For example, you might be dating a person for two years before discovering that they actually hate sushi and have only been eating it around you because they’re afraid of hurting your feelings. It’s a tiny detail in the long run — granted, one you might have preferred to discuss oh, I don’t know, two years ago earlier — but it might leave you questioning all other kinds of things and potentially spiraling out of control. Like, does your partner even like you or do they just keep you around so your feelings don’t get hurt? You get the idea.

To our great delight, some kind of Machiavellian redditor posed the following question to the community: What’s something you found out about your S/O years into the relationship that made you reevaluate the whole thing?

The responses are simultaneously cringeworthy and pleasurable to read, you know, in a schadenfreude way. So grab some popcorn, and hug your S/O for being who they are — or don’t, because who knows what kinds of secrets they’ve got hiding up their sleeves.

1

Surprise!

2

Seriously, bro?

3

Ohhhh *now* I see what you mean…

4

“This will take me awhile to process.”

5

Wait, WHAT?!

6

Run, don’t walk.

7

This sounds like a really frustrating situation to be in.

8

Eight years in hiding.

9

“We have nothing to hide from one another. Or so I thought.”

10

University of What?

11

These coincidences are so crazy, it’s like the couple’s meant to be.

12

“She was formulating a plan to murder me.”

13

Seven-year shocker.

14

“I never realized how intelligent she was.”

15

If only you knew this from the start.

16

Think you could have said something like… nine months ago?

17

22 years and you think you know a person…

18

You know it’s bad when parents have to be brought in.
