Imagine rocking up to the Pearly Gates, only for St. Peter to tell you that your baptism didn't count because the priest used the wrong pronoun. For an alarming number of people, this is not outside the realm of possibility. 

It could be worse, though – you could live in Florida, Tennesse, or Iowa, where the quintessential gamer fuel is about to come in an alcoholic variety.

Or you could be the 80-year-old who was kidnapped by a naked intruder (and who somehow used Wordle to escape??). Or the Indonesian man who almost Google Maps-ed himself into marrying the wrong person. OR the bartender who was robbed twice – once by an armed robber, and a second time by his own employer.

If there’s one thing everyone can agree on – even the guy who freaked out mid-flight and took a coffee pot to the dome, courtesy of a flight attendant – it’s this: at least we’re not MoviePass.
