Unexpectedly Heartwarming Rescue Of A Sick 'Ugly' Fish Goes Viral

Animal rescue stories are always heartwarming, but you might not expect a fish rescue story to be. Despite people getting fish as pets so commonly, most people don't know how hard taking care of a pet fish can be. And in this story, unfortunately, the family who had the now not-so-ugly 'Ugly Ivan' not only didn't take care of him well but neglected and abused him. 

Most people probably wouldn't work so hard to rescue a fish, but NotaScientologiston imgurdid. Surprisingly, people responded with more love than any of us expected, with Ugly Ivan going viral over and over again. People wanted to know more about his story, and people wanted him to survive, and luckily, people are getting both of these things.

The water was so toxic that it was eating away the caulk sealing his tank together. I gave him a name, and started treatment as best i could. Ugly Ivan was home NotaScientologist'

Employees Get Bamboozled by Chicken Lady

It's no question that employees are wary of customers. Most customers are fine, but the few who love to put retail workers in precarious positions are the kind of folks who will never be forgotten. For one that ended with more justice, here's a lying Karen that got decimated by the owner's response.

Rude Gentleman Demands No Ice, Gets Less Than That

For some reason rude customers get this idea in their head that servers and bartenders are physically incapable of being mean right back to them. Sure it's often a safe bet that service people have to be nice to you, but why push it?  You see it time and time again, like this bartender maliciously complying with a customer who wanted a bigger glass, or this jerkbag who gave a server an ultimatum and ended up paying for 25 beers.

Guy Rudely Orders For Table, Gets Mocked By Server

Having dinner with the parents can go a lot of ways, but it narrows your odds of success when you interrupt mom and insist on being the server's only point of contact. Lo and behold, the server complied. Out of some misaligned sense of responsibility or self importance, this guy made himself a target right out of the gate. At least it's better than having to defeat a Karen. And at least nothing happened to the food.

Boss Orders Endless Task, Ends Up Stuck With It

Sometimes managers don't fully think through the things they ask their employees to do, resulting in modern-day Sisyphean labors. And anyone who has had a "make-work" kind of boss can attest to the diminishing returns of their demands. Anyone ever spend a day pulling staples out of rotten wood that all ended up going in the same garbage anyway? Fickle managers and customers can end up asking us to serve up contradictions, like this customer who asked for garlic-free garlic bread

Tumblr Thread: Cat Saves Freezing Baby, Curling Up Around It And Screaming For Help

When you think of heroes, cats are probably not the first thing that comes up in your mind. Most of them are not known for rushing to save the humans they've chosen. But Masha, she is a special cat, and she has a really special, heartwarming story

Having come across a freezing human baby, Masha took it upon herself to save the baby. she curled up around it, kept it warm through the night, and in the morning, she strolled around and screamed until someone followed her and found the baby. She even managed to get herself into the ambulance with the baby afterward. Had it not been for her, the baby would have died. Of course, this amazing cat later on got adopted, and we can only say thank you - to her adopters because she deserves the most amazing forever home, and to her - for doing the impossible and saving the baby's life.  

tumblr thread about a cat who saved a baby from freezing thumbnail includes two pictures including one of a baby and one of a cat in a box 'This baby boy was found with a bag containing baby food and diapers on a cold winter night in Obninsk, Russia. Masha the cat, saved the baby's life by curling around him and shielding him from below freezing temperatures.'

Dude's Dad Uses Legal Loophole To Speed For Years

Everyone loves a good loophole they can exploit for years. While speeding is an inadvisable thing to do, this dude was able to navigate a legal gray area that allowed him to avoid getting a ticket for half a decade. Who knows if he saved enough time speeding to make up for all the time he spent in court, but still, it's an intriguing misuse of the law. For another amazing loophole, there's this person who made a mockery of a robotics competition

Student Corrects Teacher, Teacher Can't Handle It

While it is a teacher's responsibility to know things, they're still human and are capable of getting those things wrong. It's when a teacher says something wrong and doesn't own up to it when things get weird. What's the value in lying to kids just so that you can maintain a false sense of authority? Sometimes teachers don't give their students enough credit, like this tumblr thread about a teacher underestimating their students for a social experiment. With the veritable weirdness some educators display, luckily there are also teachers who pulled total bro moves.

Lingering Customer Can't Use Facilities After Close, Throws Tantrum

Closing time can be a dodgy period for employees. This lady brought her tea from home so it's unclear if she was even a real customer, but expecting to just stay as long as you want when all the employees should be off work anyway? What a way to live your life. Too many customers don't seem to get that closed means closed, like this entitled customer who expects a place to stay open late but can't handle rejection.

Negligent Employee Gives Pokémon League Duties to Random Kid, Kid Gets Back Pay

The world of retail work is full of mistaken customers, like this Karen who thought an employee was a line cutter, but it's pretty clear that at many institutions, the people running them also have very little clue of what exactly is going on. In this case, one employee who couldn't care less foisted the Pokémon duties onto some random kids, and when management found out they just thought "oh crap we better pay 'em."

Staff Makes Student Patiently Wait to Report Fire

The hierarchy of school can be strange, especially when there's some miscommunication going on between staff and students. In this case, the staff didn't understand the full scope of what was going on, and had themselves an absurd situation on their hands. Here's a tumblr story of a teacher who underestimated their students in a social experiment, and here are some "that's amazing, but please stop" school stories.
