All he wanted was 1 pound of green beans. Just one. No, wait. He meant 1 pound!

The most important job for any manager at Kroger grocery stores is customer service. And part of that responsibility is looking at customer complaints and feedback.


After receiving what might be the most hilarious “complaint” ever from a customer, one anonymous manager shared the feedback with his son, who promptly uploaded the complaint form to Reddit where it quickly went viral.

In this case, the customer had attempted to order 1 pound of green beans online. Instead, what arrived in the mail was literally 1 single green bean. Neatly packaged, in perfect condition and with a bill for two cents.

“This is honestly the most hilarious thing,” the customer writes. “The entertainment value of seeing one sad, lonely green bean in a large produce bag more than makes up for the lack of remaining green beans.”

Obviously the customer wasn’t even mad. But they would like to know how this happened. And so would we!

The customer is quick to note they were not overcharged. “I paid a very fair price for my single green bean.”

But they are very confused. Especially since the Kroger website literally only lets customers order green beans by the pound.

And they have questions they were hoping the friendly neighborhood Kroger manager could answer:

“Was the lb unit absent, or did they really think a customer wanted a Clickist employee to painstakingly pick out a single green bean for them?”

“What kind of sociopath would order one green bean?”

“Did you consider calling the police on that person?”

And to sum it all up, they declared:

“Obviously I don’t expect answers to all of these, but they are honest questions I have.”

So would we. But in the meantime, we’ll take the copious amounts of laughter, free of charge.

Being married is like being half of a two-headed monster. It's impossible to avoid regular disagreements when you're bound to another person for the rest of your life. Even the perfect marriage (if there was such a thing) would have its daily frustrations. Funnily enough, most fights aren't caused by big decisions but the simple, day-to-day questions, such as "What do you want for dinner?"; "Are we free Friday night?"; and "What movie do you want to see?"

Here are some hilarious tweets that just about every married couple will understand.

A man told me gun laws would create more 'soft targets.' He summed up the whole problem.

As far as I know, there are only two places in the world where people living their lives are referred to as 'soft targets.'

Only in America are kids in classrooms referred to as "soft targets."

On the Fourth of July, a gunman opened fire at a parade in quaint Highland Park, Illinois, killing at least six people, injuring dozens and traumatizing (once again) an entire nation.

My family member who was at the parade was able to flee to safety, but the trauma of what she experienced will linger. For the toddler with the blood-soaked sock, carried to safety by a stranger after being pulled from under his father's bullet-torn body, life will never be the same.

There's a phrase I keep seeing in debates over gun violence, one that I can't seem to shake from my mind. After the Uvalde school shooting, I shared my thoughts on why arming teachers is a bad idea, and a gentleman responded with this brief comment:

"Way to create more soft targets."

Paul Rudd in 2016.

Passing around your yearbook to have it signed by friends, teachers and classmates is a fun rite of passage for kids in junior high and high school. But, according to KDVR, for Brody Ridder, a bullied sixth grader at The Academy of Charter Schools in Westminster, Colorado, it was just another day of putting up with rejection.

Poor Brody was only able to get four signatures in his yearbook, two from what appeared to be teachers and one from himself that said, “Hope you make some more friends."

Brody’s mom, Cassandra Ridder has been devastated by the bullying her son has faced over the past two years. "There [are] kids that have pushed him and called him names," she told The Washington Post. It has to be terrible to have your child be bullied and there is nothing you can do.

She posted about the incident on Facebook.

“My poor son. Doesn’t seem like it’s getting any better. 2 teachers and a total of 2 students wrote in his yearbook,” she posted on Facebook. “Despite Brody asking all kinds of kids to sign it. So Brody took it upon himself to write to himself. My heart is shattered. Teach your kids kindness.”
