    My girlfriend is currently crying because she thought the $70 she wanted to spend on “adopting” a koala bear from the Australian brush fires was actually going to physically get her a koala bear. Like they would just Fedex that shit to us, and not just her become a sponsor.

    14. This person who thought that the first Monday of deer season was a national holiday:

    17. And finally, this person who said "I love you" to a stranger:

    The elevator doors opened up and a guy walked in the elevator. It was just me and him in there and he said “I love you.” And I’m not rude so I said “I love you too”. He gave me a weird look and pointed at his Bluetooth.
