Being a waiter or waitress can be pretty tough at times. Complaining customers, lame tips-- the list goes on. But of course there are the select few awesome diners who actually appreciate their servers (or just want to give 'em a laugh), and they leave a clever notes on the receipt.
It all started with the 'Dogshaming' meme, where owners took to the Web to expose their misbehaving pooches. Then there was bunny shaming, which taught us that even those little guys can get into trouble. But that ain't got nothin' on the latest version -- baby shaming brings this trend to an entirely new level of adorable.
Anyone who's ever been the victim of a pickup line can probably agree with this response: WOOF. While a lot of them can be pretty awful ("Do you have a bandaid? Cause I just scraped my knee falling for you."), all are straight up hilarious.
We've covered our fair share of some cute n' tiny animals. Mini horses, baby owls-- you name it, we're big fans. But this time around, we've scoped out something new and adorable and OMG we want them right now! Guys, it's tiny turtle time.
If you've ever held some sort of customer service position, you know it can be incredibly trying, to say the least. Whether you've been a waiter, bartender or even a stylist, getting feedback on comment cards is just part of the ole job. While some notes can be harsh, according to our Instagram findings, a decent amount are actually really helpful.
We've gotta hand it to the sign-makers of the world. They come up with some pretty creative stuff that makes us scratch our heads and get in boozy moods. But the street signers? Well, they're a whole 'nother funny animal.
Ahh, summer. 'Tis the season of watermelon art, diving fails and-- you guessed it-- belly flops. When we were kids, this pool move was awesome. But nowadays... who are we kidding? It's still (painfully) awesome!
We've come across a ton of cute stuff in our time, like baby owls and sleepy kiddos. But we're going out on a limb here and claiming our latest finds are among the most adorable. Guys, it's animals with their teddy bears. Aww, come on now!
The great thing about art is that we can express ourselves in endless ways. Feeling inspired by Grumpy Cat? Paint a detailed portrait of Tardar Sauce-- we won't judge. Or maybe 'Star Wars' gets you all jazzed. Heck, make a Lego scene to reflect those feelings! It's all fun in our books, and we're especially fans of the offbeat type of art, like that of the banana variety.
Weaning into a new week can be a bit tough sometimes. Or all the time. That's why things like soothing jellyfish and Daily Distractions exist. You know, to give us an extra pep in our steps when the day seems to be dragging. And we have a feeling these happy geckos will do just that!
Raise your hand if you love trampolines! We sure do, particularly because they're like an instant way to revisit our inner five-year-old. While trampolines are no doubt fun, they can be hilariously painful, too (see: epic fails). If you think about it, though, the trampoline concept is also straight up confusing. That's why these animals are all, "what the heck, man?!"
Let's imagine you're ordering a pizza online. Before clicking "order," have you ever noticed that small area where you can write comments or additional directions? As far as we're concerned, this feature is highly underused, because this is where pizza box art is born.
The restaurant biz is super competitive, which is why standing out from every other place is a key compenent to success. Of course a good restaurant should have great food, but first impressions (aka the kind that happen before you even walk into an establishment) are often overlooked. This is where creative signs come into play.
If you've ever tried to pull off a photobomb, you probably know it's tougher than it looks. Ruining a picture takes a lot of skill, although there are the select few who've already gotten it down. (See: babies, this stingray and Kevin Spacey) But we haven't covered 'em all.
