Ducks are cool

I like that it just sits there and waits for the people to get its babies.

Very cool

Popcorn tastes good

For those that are interested, Doug posted the whole story...as a Yelp review for the hotel. Here's the transcript:

"My show in Auckland- the last of this leg of the tour - was a debacle. It was the last day of school and we drank accordingly.

I woke up about 4am in a stupor and killed time on the internet until the 5am start of an exquisitely overpriced ($35) breakfast buffet. As I exited my room, a matured Japanese couple rushed past me followed by an elderly, vacant and distraught woman, barefooted dressed only in a thin, short nightgown - more like a hospital gown than even night clothing.

"Are you okay?" I asked and the Japanese couple hurled a panicked "No, she's not! She needs help!" as they jumped on the elevator, not helping.

After a few questions it was obvious that this woman was suffering in an advanced stage of Alzheimer's or a like dementia. She'd only gone out to use the rest room, she said. She just didn't know where it was she came from. I put my war-torn leather jacket around her and brought her downstairs to the bathroom in the lobby where I told the front desk the issue.

Through the faintest, struggling voice, the woman told us her name and managed that she'd come here by train with people that she knew but couldn't bring any other details. The front desk found no one by that name registered. I told them that she must have come out of a third floor room as the keycards are floor specific and that's where I'd found her.

They sent a housekeeper to find her a robe. I mentioned they should also get her slippers, her bare feet on cold tile. They came back with a towel. Eh.

She managed to mention her daughter and I asked her daughter's name. I think she tried not to cry when she said that she couldn't remember and I tried as hard.

Finally the manager found the same last name on the third floor and called with no answer. She asked the woman if that was her daughter's name and it sparked enough memory to confirm it. We took her back to that room where the manager opened the door and shouted out the daughter's name. The daughter came as bedraggled as anyone would be at that hour and obviously distraught that her mother had been found wandering lost.

They returned my filthy coat and Mother was taken in safely.

Then manager turned to me conspiratorially and said "She smelled strongly of alcohol!"

"No, ma'am. That's me. She has dementia. I'm the one that smells of alcohol."

And in a half a beat and a whiff, she said "Oh, that IS you!"

The last show was a drunken spectacle. But I did good this morning."

"Are you okay?" I asked and the Japanese couple hurled a panicked "No, she's not! She needs help!" as they jumped on the elevator, not helping.

comedic gold right here. great example of the miserable human condition of recognizing how fucked a situation is, and then doing nothing about it.

Or just having a plane to catch and being stuck in a system so unforgiving that they won't make concessions for you, even if you were helping a demented old lady find her way back to her family. "Haha nope you need to pay a fee for that. :))))" Fuck airlines.

I worked at a dealership doing service advisor work. My dad stopped by one time and as he was leaving one of my detailers was coming in. They passed one another through the door and the detailed came to me and said, Travis, your last customer smelled like weed. I said, Omar, that’s my dad. Rest In Peace pops

When someone is goind through a tough time, send ducklings!

This person posted that she is withdrawing from a drug and wants to kill herself. I strongly encourage you to brighten someones day with ducklings too!

This post was taken down from /sub/wholesomememes due to breaking their second rule, so i hope you have more fun with my original post! :)

Not usually a fan of unsolicited d*ck pics, but these make me happy :)

Quack

My niece is a Brownie. As part a badge she had to go on an adventure in a park/reserve and leave a treasure for someone to find. She decided on a message in a bottle and some of her most prized shells. I added my number to the note asking for someone to text when they found it. I just received this

How fucking wholesome. I hope she gets her badge as well (if she hasn't* already)!

Need to go rock climbing on the local indoor rock wall and also wait for a fine day to go out in the boat and it’ll be the 2nd badge she’s gotten these school holidays! I’m so proud of how hard she’s working at them!

Was 7 days

Sting would be so proud..!

This beautiful girl was scared during takeoff & asked if she could hold this strangers hand. Man: "Of course! It's going to be ok!" [Kept her calm & distracted by asking about her family] ❤️ People are good ❤️

My innocence is back. This post is so pure.

It must've taken her a lot of courage to ask that of a stranger, which is awesome. It's even more awesome he held her hand and comforted her. Nice to see this.

It is beautiful to see people taking care of each other.

Not true. This happened to a friend of mine on Twitter today. Just wanted to pass along.

True human kindness. ❤️

Make that person your best friend. It's so hard to find good solid friends. High five to that person.

Seriously. When I was in college, my best friend used to carry around chapstick specifically for me because I always needed it and always lost mine.

She also used to buy generic brand Oreos and switched to namebrand just because I didn't care for them. I never asked her to do that at all! It just didn't matter to her either way and she wanted to have snacks I liked:)

Such a wonderful person.

I just shared this it’s not me. I do hope these girls become BFF’s. Everyone needs a friend like that in their lives.

That made me smile.

I don’t smile much

Check yes or no.

Check yes or no.

at what point do you get the messy cool looking handwriting every adult has?

mine looks identical to emmas and i gotta know

I'm picturing Emma as an elderly woman on roller skates who curses up a storm every time she misses a shot.

Start writing faster, with longer and sharper lines. I usually have Emma-handwriting too, but I can manage a cooler style if I try.

Plot twist: Emma is short for Emmanuel, who is a 49 year old male with a history of mental illness, drug use, and violent behavior. Good luck, OP.

Trucks Line Up To Save Man From Suicide In Michigan

Trucks Line Up To Save Man From Suicide In Michigan

From a trucker; we never mind helping out, but when directed by police it keeps us from getting punished for not making delivery/pickup. Also means can take a break.

What gets me about this is that it requires the cooperation of 13 drivers, none of whose job it is to prevent this man's suicide. A dozen+ people saying "we want you to live" is a pretty powerful message.

Small article on this, the truckers didn't do this on their own but were willing to help

"They kind of have no choice because we commender them but most of them, we don't have any issue with. They volunteer right away as soon as we ask for their help to get under there and guide them under the bridge," said Shaw. "So, they end up sitting there for a couple hours and hopefully everything comes out well, and this time it did."

I was wondering how you explain that 3 hour lapse to dispatch or your boss! Makes sense to have a note from the PD.

Heck the police

As European I am much more fascinated by the amounts of pick-ups in this gif

As an American, I didn't even think about it. But concentrating on it now, it almost looks like a glitch in the matrix

On the ruff side of town I see.

You have the right to remain adorable. Please come here so I can hold you against me.
