I'm a fiend for Halo Top Ice Cream, especially the chocolate peanut butter pint. My local supermarket's computer algorithm knows this and will constantly give me coupons and receipts every time I buy a pint.
They know I'm going to come back for more and end up saving me some money every time I get some of that low-calorie deliciousness. I'm not an extreme couponer or anything like that, but getting those $1 or coveted $2 off coupons makes me feel like I have a little reward program, and I get a little bummed out every time I lose a coupon or accidentally throw it away.
And I get it, Halo Top might not be everyone's cup of tea, and it's been meme'd into infinity...
...but I still like it and the little rewards program I set up for buying it. JUST LET ME HAVE THAT, GUYS.
And as bummed out as I am when I lose a coupon, I'd be even more livid if I found out that someone managed to steal my ice cream coupons and use them for themselves. Because I'm the one who originally paid for the Halo Top, dagnammit, why the heck should they reap the benefits of my spending, right?!
Which is why I audibly gasped when Twitter user @gracearnprie discovered her Domino's account had been hacked and someone did the unthinkable:
today I got an email confirming a domino's order I didn't make bc someone HACKED my account to use my points to get a free pizza so I called the store and the guy literally took it out of the oven, threw it away, and told me he'd tell whoever came for it to fuck off— Grace (@gracearnprie) July 4, 2018
They used her points to get a free pizza. Her free pizza. The nerve. The gall.
Devastated, Grace contacted her local Domino's to let them know of the scoundrel's scheme and they were not having it. The employee promised to throw the pizza away and get in the crook's face to let them know what a scumbag they were for hacking into someone's account.
Not everyone believed Grace, initially.
But she had the proof.
The Domino's confirmation email.
And the call to the shop.
Some people still doubted her and noticed a time "discrepancy" in her story.
And it gently had to be explained to them.
it’s the timezone difference between florida-arizona, she actually made the call a minute after the order was placed— emma stoned (@emmabrggs) July 4, 2018
Why would someone from Arizona order a pizza from a Florida pizza shop— Johnny PageViews (@johnrbrubaker) July 4, 2018
Some people were more concerned with the fact that a perfectly good pizza went to waste.
Grace's response pretty sums up everyone else's feelings on the matter who have ever had anything stolen from them.
And there were more than a few individuals who were concerned with the fact that Grace's private details were available to the "hacker."
Thankfully Grace kept most of her private details out of her account.
I had this same thought but luckily I never saved my address in my profile :’)— Grace (@gracearnprie) July 4, 2018
Her tweet blew up so much that Domino's PR team contacted her. Here's hoping she gets some extra points and/or swag for her woes.
People immediately began worrying that the employee who vowed to tell the thief off would be in trouble.
As for Grace, the entire experience left her feeling some kinda of way.
Let's hope her points are restored and she picks a stronger password next time.
We’ve all been there. You swipe right on Tinder, decide on a place to meet, and realize about five minutes in that leaving your house in the first place was a huge error. Maybe you feel like you’ve been catfished because they look nothing like their photos (surprise!), or perhaps you quickly realize they weren’t being sarcastic in their profile when they said their favorite band was The Beatles.
Whatever the case may be, there’s no flying spark to indicate this is the person of your dreams. And maybe you’re the mature kind of individual who can finish their drink, bring up the fact that you don’t see a future together, split the bill, and head your own separate ways. Bravo!
But what if you’re not? u/PM_Me_YourTinyBoobs kindly addressed this very question on Reddit when he asked what a person could say to instantly derail a date. The answers ranged from painfully incestuous to downright hilarious.
Next time you just need to shut it down really quickly and abruptly, these are some perfect lines you can use.
When I had my first drink, I didn't have much of a frame of reference, but I knew that a drink order says a lot about a person. So I chose wisely and just imitated whoever I thought was cool when I was growing up. And there's no one cooler than Clint Eastwood in any Western, ever.
So I ordered myself a whiskey. Neat. I didn't enjoy it. I didn't like the flavor. But I stuck with that drink every time I went out with my friends. I tried different types of whiskey and settled on Jameson. Why? Image. It was all image.
Although I don't really drink that much anymore, when I do, I let my best friend either make my drink or at least decide what I should be sippin' on (he's an amazing bartender), because I clearly have no idea what I'm doing. And he's probably doing me a solid by making me look like I'm somewhat cultured in front of other bartenders. Because, as I've learned in this AskReddit post, there are stereotypes associated with particular drinks and they can get pretty judgmental.
There are plenty of ways to troll a sleeping friend while on a road trip. My personal favorite is parking the car in front of a light pole or a wall, flashing your lights, and having everyone in the car at the same time scream their heads off as if you're all about to die.
That's one way to wake them up.
But Eria found a different approach to trolling her boyfriend, Scott, that had a much longer effect: she enlisted the help of the I'm Telling God Facebook group in roasting him mercilessly for his soporific ways. As a result, the 'Sleepy Scott' meme was born.
If you were like pretty much everyone in the world, you were probably let down by the fact that Croatia didn't have their storybook ending in taking home first place in the 2018 World Cup. Sure, France had an amazing team and all that, and the contest's youngest MVP player, Mbappé, even donated all of his winnings from the tournament to charity—so I guess it's hard to be too upset with the competition's end result.
And even though everyone played their hearts out (except Egypt, I mean, they went again Saudi Arabia and the results were just embarrassing), there was a clear winner this World Cup and it actually wasn't even any of the teams. S
ure there's a first, second, and third place result, but all of those accomplishments pale in comparison to the wonderful memes that sprung up as a result of this glorious tournament.
More than a few were thanks to Brazil's Neymar.
