Twitter Thread About Sick Days In The Service Industry Is Depressing As Hell

Most of us have had to or will have to work in the customer service industry at some point in our lives. Whether that be bartending, serving, or working at a grocery store, all of these jobs have one thing in common: virtually no opportunity for paid sick days, which can lead to employees infecting others and even ridicule from management if one dares to take a day off.

Writer Lauren Hough took to Twitter to highlight these problems, and we have to say that it's very informative and 100% worth the read.

And once again, here's a link to some hilarious (yet ultimately depressing) memes about our "wonderful" healthcare system!

16 Relatable WebMD Tweets For All You Hypochondriacs

The other day I was googling some lower back pain that can probably be attributed to years of hunching over computers. A helpful WebMD headline popped up and next thing I knew I was diagnosing myself with lung cancer. This is nothing new. WebMD has been torturing hypochondriacs since before the internet was used to locate hot singles that want to meet you. And poor souls like me have been complaining about it since then. Recently, Twitter's seen an uptick in disgruntled WebMD-ers letting it all out. It's good to see we're not alone in our certain deaths. 

Funny tweets about WebMD.
