Hate Mail

, , , | England, UK | Friendly | October 7, 2016

A woman’s mail keeps coming to my flat. I’ve tried to deliver her mail a couple of times and always fail because there is no one home.

I try one more time. The woman doesn’t even open the door, just opens a window and yells at me until she pauses for a breathe, where I am able to tell her I have a parcel and want to check it is hers.

She begins yelling again, confirming it is hers and to just put it through the d*** door. I do so and leave as she yells after me to not come back.

Next time I get her mail I’m just leaving it at the post office with a complaint.

Needs To Be Debunked

, , | Columbus, OH, USA | Friendly | October 6, 2016

Friends and family are in a special waiting room waiting to hear the results of my husband’s heart-catheterization, occasionally softly talking. Softly, because the adjoining bunk room is occupied and its door is open. Suddenly, noises from the bunk room indicate a couple is enjoying VERY enthusiastic sex!

None of us know what to do. The area just outside the waiting room is too busy for us to occupy space. Leaving the area means risking missing the doctor. We just avoid looking into the bunk room or at each other until the couple is silent again.

About ten minutes after that, the doctor arrives to talk with us. We all are extremely quiet, but a man in the bunk room protests: “For G*d’s sake! We’re trying to get some sleep in here!”

Acting All Mother Superior

, , | Philadelphia, PA, USA | Learning | October 5, 2016

My grandmother and her sister (my great-aunt) were raised Lutheran, but at one point, their dad put them in Catholic school because he thought they would get a better education there.

This was back when the nuns were the teachers and the Mother Superior was the principal.

They were in the school barely two weeks when my grandmother dared question her teacher about something. The nun rapped her knuckles with a ruler and told her to go to the Mother Superior. My grandmother instead went to her sister’s class, and said the Mother Superior wanted to see my great-aunt. Once they were in the hallway, my grandmother told her, “Get your things. We’re leaving.”, and they went home!

When their dad got home, they told him what had happened. The very next day, he went to the school take them out for good, and to read the Mother Superior the riot act.

Giving Her And The Table Something To Stand On

, , | Belgium | Hopeless | October 1, 2016

My mom has recently bought a new dining table and chairs, so she needs to get rid of her old one. I post an ad on a second-hands website to give it away for free, since it’s a quite old table, but in very good condition.

I quickly receive a reaction to the ad and we settle a date for the people to come and get the table. I also arrange for my husband to come at her place ASAP after his work to fix her new table.

My mom has recently been diagnosed with cancer and is in the middle of her treatment which shows by her wearing a headkerchief to cover her loss of hair, and she is not able to help lift the table since she has a PEG tube.

In the afternoon I receive a message from her:

“Those people were so nice! They immediately told me not to worry about lifting the table, and they even fixed my new one!”

This is something which made her very happy since she loves colouring and stuff, so she really needs a table.

It was a small gesture from those people, total strangers to my mom, but it really made me happy they did that!
