Leaf bug (Phyllium giganteum)

The constant wobbling as they move is a part of their disguise, making it seem as though the “leaf” is only moving because of a light breeze.

If you blow on one it will also shake around in the hopes of matching any actual surrounding leaves

This is obviously a Pokemon…

This is AMAZING!

Mother to her 7 year old daughter: Which color golf set do you want?
Daughter: BLUE!
Mother: okay, we'll take the blue set.
BOOM! A parent that doesn't care about gender marketing! So refreshing!
She didn't hesitate, or try to go with a different color. She clearly just wanted to get whatever her daughter wanted. Awesome.
How the Logic of "Friendzoning" Would Work If Applied in Other Instances:
*Man walks into a store and finds employee*
Man: Alright, I've had enough. Why haven't you guys hired me?!
Employee: Uh...well sir, when did you put in your application?
Man: I never filled out an application.
Employee: Well sir, we can't consider you for employment if you've never filled out an application.
Man: No, that's bullshit, because I've been coming here for years now, and every single time I tell you all how much I love this store and how much I appreciate your customer service, unlike some of your other customers might I add!
Employee: Well, but that doesn't-
Man: AND I even told you that I didn't have a job!
Employee: But sir, that doesn't indicate to us that you would like a job at our store. And again, if you've never filled out an application, we can't consider you. Besides, we're not hiring.
Man: OH! Not hiring, HA! What a laugh. I see your store go through seasonal workers all the time. They come and go like nothing, but you won't consider me as a part-time employee even though I KNOW you've been looking for workers to fill positions? That's insane!
Employee: Sir, we've been looking to hire a few people for management positions. Do you have any management experience?
Man: Well no, but what does that matter?
Employee: ...Well sir, that's what we're looking for. You won't be suitable for the position without management experience.
Man: Oh that's such a load of crap. You know, you'll be waiting around a long time for a manager if you don't lower your standards a little. Who cares if someone knows how to manage a store? I LOVE this store and I'm willing to work here, that's all that should matter to you.
Employee: That...doesn't make any sense.
Man: NO! I'm done. This is over. From now on, no more Mr. Nice Guy.
Employee:
Man:
Employee:
Man: Fuck you, slut.

When I worked at a non-profit that handled suicide prevention, I had access to the donation records. Each month, a specific man donated 15$ to our organization. It was like clockwork.. same day, same man, he had been doing this for over 4 years. It always seemed odd to me but I never questioned it… until I saw a note attached one month. "For Noah- Dad"

his donation was once his child’s allowance.

I can promise you, they would miss you for the rest of their lives.

This gave me chills all over.

A month before his 32nd birthday.


AWKWARD!

I can honestly say…I love my job.

Looking back on the last few months, the main reason I hated my job so much was because of a couple managers I had to work for.

Being a manager at a different location now, I LOVE IT. I love the employees, I love the other managers, and I can deal with the customers. It feels like a family. I feel like I’ve progressed more in 1 month here than I did in the last year there.

I try (and believe I have succeeded) so hard not to bring in any attitude from outside the building into work. I have been so upbeat towards everyone, and even though it is so exhausting to do that for me, I feel like it’s so important to the morale of the store that managers be positive. I hated dealing with managers that were so easily annoyed with just having to do their job. I don’t ever want to be the reason one of my cashiers cries in the breakroom. I swear I will NEVER be that manager.
