Most people agree that scam calls should be banned. But before the ban becomes a reality, some online users have learned ways to deal with the scammers. “I just hit mute and wait till they hang up,” writes one user. Another says, “I entertain myself at their expense. I have been cussed in at least 10 different languages.”

“Why does every public toilet door have a great gap down the side or along the top?” wonders a commentator. According to a different online user, the gap helps “check if someone’s overdosing drugs in the bathroom, and it makes mopping easier.”

Why hasn’t the government banned the bright blue LED headlights? Driving at night is becoming impossible with those blinding lights! “I’ve had to brake when those cars pass by or pull into side roads. It’s worse if they are trucks because the headlights are higher,” complains a driver.

Sadly, insurance companies refuse to pay for certain medical procedures in the name of profits. One user says, “I paid out of pocket for my last MRI because my insurance denied it. I wound up having surgery because my injury was so bad. But I didn’t need an MRI, according to my insurance.”
