20+ Reasons Why Jerks Shouldn't Be Allowed to Design Things

By now, we're all used to the fact that Capitalism™️ requires businesses to keep coming up with clever new ways to maximize profits by bamboozling consumers, but sometimes the levels of trickery can reach infuriating heights. Some true a-holes out there design products, websites and interfaces not so much to sell us something of actual value, but to trick us into clicking or paying to escape the frustration they've intentionally caused. If you're as pissed off as we are about these jerks, keep scrolling for some maddening examples of a-hole design

'Unpopular Opinion' About Working Weekends Gets Roasted by the Internet

Another day, another terrible Twitter take. The state of how we work has been a major topic of discussion as the world attempts to return to normalcy as Covid-19 seems to be less of a threat for many countries. There have been many think-pieces and Twitter threads about working remotely and fair wages. Then there was the revelation that people would rather quit their jobs than go back to the office. People are starting to question how much of our lives are devoted to work. Which is healthy. Time is precious. We need money, but should we be grinding ourselves to death for it? Or spending 10 hours a week commuting? We don't think so. 

There are, of course, opponents of this radical way of thinking. There are CEOs who are eager to pull the plug on remote work - and the BBC is reporting that the five-day workweek will be re-normalized by 2022. But one person thinks that five days is not enough. Twitter user and venture capitalist (Principal at Atomic) Jordan Kong stoked the ire of a lot of people this past weekend when she tweeted her thoughts on young people trying to work on their careers. 

The sentiment - which seems a little dehumanizing - was not received well. Proponents of balance and "working to live" were quick to share their opposition. Incredulous people shared some roasty zingers. And then, of course, the funny people of Twitter turned the tweet into a snowclone, with some memes showing their disdain for the take and others using it to make jokes filled with pop culture references. Though we're sure some people will disagree, it's nice to see some people standing up for our right to not work. Even if they're doing it through memes.

Kafkaesque Posts From This Boring Dystopia We Call Earth

Life in the 21st century feels like a bad dark comedy no one would ever pay to see. Every new headline about some evil biotech company developing drugs that make prisoners feel like they're serving 1,000 year sentences only further proves that the world is some sick joke and we're living in a boring dystopia. If you're sitting in your Kafkaesque cubical, crying inside while you wait for Western civilization to collapse, maybe you'll morbidly enjoy these dismal posts about the late capitalist hellscape we're all forced to exist in.

Do you remember the last time you had McDonald's ice cream? Neither can we. A big reason for that is because their ice cream machine is always broken. This is such a widespread issue that it's become a meme, there's a real-time internet map of broken McDonald's machines, and now, thanks to Johnny Harris, there's an impressively comprehensive investigative documentary that gets to the bottom of this fast food phenomenon.

20 Reasons Why 'Smart Devices' Are Actually Dumb As Hell

What's the point of 'smart' and 'connected' objects? Are they supposed to help us get through menial tasks more efficiently, or have the capitalists figured out a clever way to perpetually profit off the objects we use on a daily basis? Sometimes it feels like the latter. When your printer holds your ink cartridge hostage because you haven't paid your monthly printer subscription, I think it's safe to say you've been swindled by the 'Internet of Things.' And technology itself isn't necessarily to blame. We'll never get to that fabled techno-utopia as long as 'innovation' prioritizes profit rather than usefulness. Until then, we get to clumsily navigate this boring dystopia of connected crap, eternally updating the firmware on our smart trashcans.
