44 People Recall The Exact Moment They Realized They Were Surrounded By Idiots

11. When a brawl broke out over the $1 Chicken Anniversary Special.

“Yearly, a local restaurant offers a meal for the price of $1 for their anniversary. They offer a fried chicken with sides or meatloaf with sides. Decided to go only to find a line stretching around the block. Hop in line, waited an hour and a half before I was pretty close. Employee walks out to say ‘Sorry, we ran out of chicken. We only have meatloaf.’

The shitshow that erupted after that was astounding. One lady in particular I remember for the amazing quote ‘That’s fucking bullshit! Me and my dog have been here for 2 hours and we both wanted chicken!’ Further up, I hear a bigger commotion. Apparently, one guy got upset about there being no chicken, his friend tried to calm him down, someone else in line made a comment, and all-out brawl ensues. Line scatters. Two cops nearby subdue the situation to the best of their ability. Restaurant shuts down for the day. No longer does $1 anniversary special.

That was a nice thing for a while. I miss $1 Fried Chicken day.”

12. When a girl couldn’t figure out why Leo DiCaprio was in a new movie because he ‘died in Titanic.

“My first year teaching high school English. I was showing my class the DiCaprio version of Romeo and Juliet, and one girl was staring at the screen intently with a puzzled look on her face. Finally, a light went off and she said, ‘How can he be in this movie? He died in Titanic.’”

14. When a bunch of idiots convinced a man to jump off a bridge.

“I used to work on the Brooklyn Bridge as an ironworker…One day some poor soul was standing towards the edge and was contemplating jumping. I told my foreman and he called the police, at about this time all the trades on the bridge started to gather and watch this man. Maybe 5 minutes go by and someone starts a ‘Jump!’ chant. This dude was going to kill himself and now he has about 40 people egging him on…he jumped. Quit my job and moved across the country, fuck those fucking fucks.”
