Retailer's conversation with the worst customer in the world went viral.

Holy moly, get ready to read what has to be one of the craziest exchanges ever between someone selling something and their potential client. A little haggling is sometimes to be expected, but this person went above and beyond.

It seems a man wanted a blanket crocheted for his sick girlfriend, but his attitude left much to be desired. Twitter user @Forexposure_txt tweeted screenshots of the whole text conversation, and you can read the exchange below.

He's rude right out of the gate when the person crocheting the blankets doesn't get back to him as quickly as he'd like.

Everything seems to be going along well (except for his statement about "business practice") until they get to the price.

So this guy thinks $400 is way too much to pay for a custom, handmade blanket, because he can get a blanket at Walmart much cheaper. Sure, that makes sense.

It turns out that, after subtracting the cost of the materials, the crocheter would be making approximately $2 an hour to make the blanket. That doesn't seem like too much to ask, does it?

Aside: Gotta love him saying "I'll tell you what. Here's what we are going to do." This is a man who must be used to getting what he wants. Although he's certainly not a charmer. Does this type of stuff work on any vendors?

By the end of the exchange, the man is threatening to ruin the woman's crochet business (not that he has that kind of power, but still). When the woman explains that she only does this as a side gig and doesn't even really want commissions, the man decides she should do it for free because she doesn't "need the money."

How much do you want to bet that his girlfriend is getting that $15 blanket from Walmart?

In America, one dumb mistake can hang over your head forever.

Nearly 30% of the American adult population — about 70 million people — have at least one criminal conviction that can prevent them from being treated equally when it comes to everything from job and housing opportunities to child custody.

Twenty million of these Americans have felony convictions that can destroy their chances of making a comfortable living and prevents them from voting out the lawmakers who imprisoned them.

Many of these convictions are drug-related and stem from the War on Drugs that began in the U.S. '80s. This war has unfairly targeted the minority community, especially African-Americans.

Climate change is happening because the earth is warming at an accelerated rate, a significant portion of that acceleration is due to human activity, and not taking measures to mitigate it will have disastrous consequences for life as we know it.

In other words: Earth is heating up, it's kinda our fault, and if we don't fix it, we're screwed.

This is the consensus of the vast majority of the world's scientists who study such things for a living. Case closed. End of story.

How do we know this to be true? Because pretty much every reputable scientific organization on the planet has examined and endorsed these conclusions. Thousands of climate studies have been done, and multiple peer-reviewed studies have been done on those studies, showing that somewhere between 84 and 97 percent of active climate science experts support these conclusions. In fact, the majority of those studies put the consensus well above 90%.

Two years ago, a tweet featuring the invoice for a fixed boiler went viral because the customer, a 91-year-old woman with leukemia, received the services for free.

"No charge for this lady under any circumstances," the invoice read. "We will be available 24 hours to help her and keep her as comfortable as possible."

The repair was done by James Anderson, 52, a father-of-five from Burnley, England. "James is an absolute star, it was overwhelming to see that it cost nothing," the woman's daughter told CNN.

I live in a family with various food intolerances. Thankfully, none of them are super serious, but we are familiar with the challenges of finding alternatives to certain foods, constantly checking labels, and asking restaurants about their ingredients.

In our family, if someone accidentally eats something they shouldn't, it's mainly a bit of inconvenient discomfort. For those with truly life-threatening food allergies, the stakes are much higher.

I can't imagine the ongoing stress of deadly allergy, especially for parents trying to keep their little ones safe.
