Finding out my girlfriend was cheating on me.

She and I were going to go to the same college, but she started a semester before I did. Went up to visit her one weekend and had a great time on the campus and met a lot of cool people. Then I get a Facebook message from a guy I met there that was, "Hey listen, I'm sorry to be the one to tell you this, but think you're a really great guy so I think you deserve to know the truth. She's been cheating on you." I decided to call her and ask her about it and she admitted it. It was very painful because it was the first long term relationship I had and it was especially hard knowing I would have to see her on campus in a few months when I started. Funny thing is that pretty much all her friends that I hung out with when I was there visiting sided with me and ended up becoming some of my closest friends throughout my college years.

AOL Instant Messenger.

It was a huge part of my teenage years and it's sad that they finally ended it in December. I remember how fun it was to stay up all night chatting with my friends, customizing my profile, and coming up with cool away messages.

Breeding and selectively engineering dogs to make them cuter and smaller. It's really weird when you think that people have done this to create dogs that are small enough to fit in your hand or look just like a teddy bear. It's like borderline mad scientist behavior, especially when you consider that many of these dogs have health problems because of the way they are.

"Not a meal, but we used to only shop for food at Aldi when I was a kid because we were poor and their lower prices were what we could afford. I remember I used to love going as a kid because they had the carts where you had to put a quarter in to get it out and you'd get it back when you returned it. I was always the one that returned the cart so my parents would let me keep the quarter." - -eDgAR-

Such a disgrace to be so poor, you had to shop at Aldi.

Dude I still have no idea wtf you're talking about or what that has to do with being an edgy 15-year-old like the kid I was talking to.

You were really edgy once.

Being single. People seem to have this idea that just because someone is single they must not be happy. Sometimes people just don't want to be in a relationship at the time and more people should be okay with that instead of saying stuff like, "I'm sure you'll find someone" or trying to set you up.

Wish my friends would try setting me up. It’s a struggle to find dates at all.

And there's nothing wrong with wanting that, some people would prefer being a relationship than being single. My point is that a lot of people think all people that are single are miserable and want to be with someone. I can definitely understand the struggles of dating too, have you tried asking your friends?

Alzheimers. It's a fate worse than death. Slowly losing who you are piece by piece while those you've spent your life loving become strangers, the life you've spent so many years creating becoming a confusion. My grandfather suffered from it and it was heartbreaking to watch.

This is also mine, but for me the biggest part of it is also having to put my family and friends through that. It's such a terrible experience for everyone and I would hate to burden those I love like that.

Nirvana - "You Know You're Right" (Acoustic boombox version)

This was recorded very close to his suicide and you could just hear the pain in his voice. When he belches out, "It's another opiate, but to me it's everything" it gives me chills every time.

I love this episode. Took me a bit to realize it was him the first time I saw it because he had this "Hollywood hunk" look to him. Don't get me wrong, he's always been a good looking guy, but in this episode it was just so different than what I was used to.

One day I was driving back from work when I saw a huge cloud of black smoke in the distance. It turns out to be a burning vehicle, so I decide to take my phone out and video it as I'm passing. Right as I'm next to it, something in the car explodes or something because I heard a loud bang. Even though I was a decent distance from it, it scared the hell out of me. Here is the video.

This is scary because of just how creepy it was, but a friend of mine were walking back to his house after going to a concert. It was late at night and as we were crossing this little foot bridge, I noticed something weird sticking out. It was a mummified rat that someone had posed hanging in the air using thick wire. Here is the picture I snagged of it on my shitty flip phone. Really creeped me out to think that someone took the time to mummify and pose this rat, seems like something a serial killer would do.

Edit: Actually looking at it again after all these years, I think it could actually be a squirrel.

When I was in college, I drunkenly hit a pint glass that was on my shelf. I sliced my finger pretty badly, but was too drunk and stubborn to really get help. Security followed the trail of blood from the bathroom to my dorm room and asked if I was okay. I showed him my finger and he told me he had to take me to the emergency room. I ended up getting a bunch of stitches and the doctor said that I was incredibly lucky because I was very close to slicing a tendon and causing permanant damage. I feel so lucky not only that security came and forced me to get medical help because I probably would have made that wound worse, but also that one drunken mistake didn't lead to something that would have an effect on me the rest of my life.

He really was, drove me and my girlfriend there himself and waited to be able to drive us back too and it was like 4am. Dude was probably my favorite security officer even before this, he was younger than the rest and much chiller about things.

I have only met 1 other person that does this, but I don't use nailclippers for my toes. I just use fingernails to sort of peel them off. Here is a video I made to show what I mean.

You should try reading the book, the references there are so hard to find, but if you look carefully there are at least 5 on every page.

I usually need the TV to help me fall asleep. What I watch varies on my mood, sometimes it's some fantastical cartoon like Futurama, sometimes it's a more realstic show like Parks and Rec. It really depends on my mood.

Regardless of what I watch, it becomes a sort of first step into sleep, slowly leading me into my dreams. I get into this zone where I am listening to what's going on and am taking it in. I try to think of myself as some sort of observer in the show instead of someone simply watching it through a screen. In my head I recreate what the world around them looks like, where they are standing, what they are doing, where they will go. It helps my imagination get going and takes me away from all the troubles, the stress, the anxiety, the whatever that I feel during the day.

My dreams don't usually take place in the universe of what I am watching, but sometimes they might. It's more of a vehicle for imagination for me, a start to sleep and awesome dreams. Sometimes it fails too and I end up lost in my own thoughts and unable to sleep, but when it works it is great. I don't know if anyone else does this too, but it's my weird way to fall asleep.

I saw a shadow person.

When I was about 17, I was at my friend's apartment building, which his parents owned. It wad a pretty old building in Pilsen, and according to his dad it used to be owned by So Capone, but I'm not sure how true that was. We had an apartment on the top floor that they let us use to just hang out and it allowed us easy access to the roof ao we could go smoke cigarettes.

One night, we were about to go up, but I had to pee, so I told him I'd meet him up there. After I was done, I went up the stairs to the attic portion that was connected to the roof. There were no lights, so we always used our phones to guide us. We had those old flip phones without lights, so you only had the light from the screen to help navigate the cluttered mess that was up there.

As I made my way to the roof door, I saw a shadow pass by me. Now this wasn't like the shadow of something moving with the light of my phone, this shadow felt solid like a person. I followed the direction it went thinking it was my friend. I kept saying that I knew it was him and to stop playing around. It passed me a few more times, before heading to the other side of the attic and that's when I heard my friends voice from downstairs.

He got a call from his girlfriend and was in another room talking to her the whole time. I have no idea what that shadow figure was, but it really freaked me out and I told my friend what happened and that I did not want to go back up there.

This wasn't me quitting, but it's a pretty great story of some coworkers that had enough of the shitty, mean owner of the restaurant.

I worked at a sushi restaurant that had a really high turnaround rate. The reason why is because one of the owners was a huge bitch who loved to yell at people. I saw people come and go, most usually lasted only a few days. There was a sushi chef there that had been there for a while. He was pretty cool and we got a long great when we worked together. His girlfriend also worked there as a cashier and a lot of times they were scheduled together.

One Saturday that I was supposed to be off, I get a call from Carol (the bitch boss) asking me if I could come in. Apparently Max and his girlfriend had had enough of her and they both just straight up left and walked out of the restaurant. The place was pretty small so usually it was just the cooks in the back, the sushi chef, and the cashier/delivery driver. So, when they left, they basically left the place empty aside from the cooks, who did not speak English that well.

I decided to take the shift for the extra money and when I got there Carol was already there behind the sushi prep area making orders. She usually didn't come in at all on weekends, but would still watch the security cameras occasionally from her laptop at home and if she saw you standing around doing nothing, she would call and yell at you. It turns out that was exactly what she did to Max and his girlfriend and they had finally had enough. Carol showed me the security footage of Max yelling at her over the phone, hanging up, then taking off his apron and both him and his girlfriend flipping of the security camera and walking out.

She was showing me because she couldn't believe how disrespectful they were and how they could just leave the restaurant like that when there were customers in it. Personally, I thought it was pretty badass they walked out together, I know I wanted to quit hundreds of times when I was there, but I was a broke college student that needed the money.

Last I heard of them was that they both got jobs at the sushi place that was competing with the restaurant they walked out on.

I feel like I’ve read this one before but I don’t know how to search for it.
