its so weird that one of the few things that completely and entirely unites an entire generation of jaded adults is an encyclopedic knowledge of spongebob quotes
EVERYONE KEEP TURNING THE EFF UP!!!
ive been meaning to make work-related comics forever, so enjoy some choice movie title bastardizations.
(these all actually, seriously, happened, with no humor or awareness on the part of the customer at the time as far as I could tell. so, yes, someone actually asked for a ticket to “Detergent” with a straight face.)
this dudebro in my english class said that ophelia deserved to die because “she led hamlet on” and my teacher threw her book against the wall
your teacher’s aim sucks
if i as a retail worker have to work with a dozen cameras pointed at me to deter me from stealing $10, cops should have to work with a camera pointed at them to deter them from arbitrarily maiming and killing people
To donate £5 to the charity supporting the male victims of domestic abuse, text the message: MKDV46 to 70070
At first I though this was a joke
Don’t ignore this Tumblr
Yet they still do even when it’s right in their face.
Ok. Regardless of the fact that I don’t think 91,000 notes is tumblr “ignoring it,” there are a few issues with this. First of all, that “40%” statistic is from a men’s rights group in the UK called parity, which is outspokenly anti-feminist. Rather than acknowledge that when domestic abuse of men does happen, it’s more likely to be at the hands of another man, they weasel-words themselves out of citing any actual statistics but a self-report survey done as a companion to the BCR, the british crime survey, all the actual data of which STILL reports women as the primary sufferers of domestic abuse (ie 55-60+ percent.)
Now, we can sit here and mince words all day, and I can certainly agree that violence against men is prevalent and important, but it is absolutely unethical and ignorant to pretend that men aren’t also the primary perpetrators. Rather than creatively painting the primary victims of domestic abuse as the perpetrators, it may be advantageous to look at some neutral statistics, bearing in mind that statistics for BOTH are probably higher, since abuse reporting for EVERYONE is low.
There, at the National Domestic Violence Hotline website, is this statistic: “From 1994 to 2010, about 4 in 5 victims of intimate partner violence were female.” and they cite their sources.
The other reason this bugs me is that when you try to look this up, most of the sources are from Parity, meaning no, nobody’s “ignoring it-” they took those flawed, misrepresented statistics and ran with them, implying worldwide issues from a single survey in the UK/Wales.
Look. It’s important to protect EVERYONE from domestic abuse. But if you’re attempting to do that by misrepresenting the primary victims, I don’t want any part of it.
Well. You’re right but it’s actually a little worse than that, even.
They might have been straight-up lying.
I just got a wrong number text from a stranger that said: “hey can we use ur pool there’s a moose in ours”

If you could be in any Broadway musical, what would it be and what role would you play?
Holy. Crap. I just found an email argument between me and some random internet person about evolution and creationism. Apparently I thought this was important enough to print out and save for TWENTY YEARS!!!
Cannot tell you how many times I’ve been on the phone with Hank and it’s clear he isn’t listening and then I say you’re not listening and then he says, “Hold on someone on the Internet is wrong about something.”
