Entitlement is truly one of the wildest human traits. We're all stuck on this spinning globe together, and yet some people truly believe they're owed other people's time and resources simply for existing.

Obviously, we all unintentionally fall into patterns of self-absorption now and again, it's part and parcel of surviving. But there's a distinct line between having an off day and approaching your peers as if they're your personal servants.

Reddit user Fandangoo is unfortunate enough to work with one of these entitled souls, and felt it their internet duty to share receipts of a particularly absurd interaction.


It all started with the coworker inquiring about Fandangoo's dinner plans, and from there it quickly escalated.

Apropos of nothing, the coworker barreled into the conversation with the full expectation that Fandangoo would change their meal plans in order to accommodate her cravings.

Luckily, Fandangoo had zero qualms about calling out the bonkers level of entitlement, and refused to be manipulated into doing free favors. This did not sit well with the coworker who quickly transformed into tantrum mode, even going so far as to call Fandangoo names.

The interaction was perfectly capped off by the spoiled coworker instructing Fandangoo to not speak to her when she got into work, which was certainly no loss for them.

Sometimes the best way to deal with a grumpy entitled coworker is to throw their behavior back in their face, and call it a day.

Losing a beloved pet is one of the most painful experiences a person can have. Suffering the loss of their companionship is only compounded by the feeling of helplessness and worry over whether their friend is safe and happy.

If the animal is found and taken to shelter, it's obviously a relief, but it can cost a lot of money in redemption fees to get the animal back.

Some shelter charges can run as much as $300 if the owner refuses to have the animal spayed or neutered or if the dog has been picked up by the shelter multiple times. While others charge as little as $15 if the animal is picked up promptly.

With 16 years of sobriety under his belt, Dax Shepard has served as a beacon of hope for people in recovery. With a reset of his sobriety clock last week after confessing to a slip with prescription painkillers, he still is.

The actor has been open about his addiction to alcohol and cocaine, and that transparency and honesty has undoubtedly helped many people through their own recovery journeys. But recovery from addiction is not always a one-way, detour-free road. Even people who have been sober for years must be diligent and self-aware or risk relapsing in ways that are easy to justify.

That's the scenario Shepard described in his recent podcast, in which he announced that he's now seven days sober. For people who struggle with addiction, it's a cautionary tale. He didn't take a drink, and he didn't touch cocaine. His slide into addiction relapse happened with prescription painkillers—Vicodin and Percocet. He started taking prescription pain pills after a motorcycle accident in 2012, moved to taking pills with his dad who was dying of cancer, and then came a gradual spiral of justifications, lying, gas lighting, and other addictive behaviors that enabled him to abuse those pills without acknowledging he was doing so.

Last year, we shared the sad impact that plastic pollution has had on some of our planet's most beautiful places. With recycling not turning out to be the savior it was made out to be, solutions to our growing plastic problem can seem distant and complex.

We have seen some glimmers of hope from both human innovation and nature itself, however. In 2016, a bacteria that evolved with the ability to break down plastic was discovered in a Japanese waste site. Two years later, scientists managed to engineer the mutant plastic-eating enzyme they called PETase—named for polyethylene terephthalate, the most common plastic found in bottles and food packaging—in a lab.

Here's an explainer of how those enzymes work:

Now researchers have revealed another game-changer in the plastic-eater—a super-enzyme that can break down plastic six times faster than PETase alone.
