15 Stories About People Who Made Decisions That Can’t Be Logically Explained

What are people thinking when they buy a 2,000-piece puzzle for a 2-year-old child? These are probably the same folks that wash their clothes 4-5 times in a row or that take children’s medicine as fully-grown adults. If you think that such people don’t exist, this article will surely change your mind.

One of these stories completely won the entire Bright Side team over — a tale about a girl that “let” a cat into a new house. We hope that the other stories from this compilation will also take your mood up a few notches.

  • My parents disliked my husband, especially my mother. When she found out we were getting married, she told me not to call her for a month. When we had kids, my parents had to start talking to my husband. He’s a very nice person and despite all of that, he always helped them when they needed it. We have a house, kids, money — they got used to him. And then I found that my mom is just waiting for me to find a normal man. © cheschirsky / Pikabu

  • I sell women’s handbags. Once, a woman came in and described a model she wanted in detail. I told her that we didn’t have such a bag. She insisted, “But I want it!” We were arguing for a few minutes, and when I ran out of patience, I asked her, “Where did you see such a bag?” And she said, “I saw it in my dream!” © Galina Arsenuk / Facebook

  • My roommate in college thought you washed clothes on every single cycle in the washing machine. Our machine had a delicate cycle, a cotton cycle, a solo rinse cycle, a permanent press cycle, etc. He always complained about the washer taking forever. And it was because he was washing his clothes 4-5 times every time he did laundry. © sooner_or_later / Reddit

  • The plane was landing. It was really low and everyone had their seatbelts on, including the flight attendants, and then I hear someone walking in the aisle. A flight attendant said, “Miss, what happened? Please take your seat.” And then the person said, “This is my stop.” The whole plane was laughing. © Nataliya Astahova / Facebook

  • The strangest person I ever met was my friend’s Uncle Franky. Growing up, my buddy and I worked in his father’s insurance office during the summers. One day, Uncle Franky came in to use a computer so he could compose an email. It was his first time doing this — it was in 2009. As he was trying to add the @ symbol in the recipient’s name, he asked where he could find it. I told him to hold down the shift button and press the number 2 key at the same time. He turned his head, and with a puzzled look his in eyes, he asked me, “Wouldn’t that be a capital 2?” © Jimmy6Times / Reddit

  • Once, a guy came to our office — he was selling tights. He wanted to demonstrate the amazing quality. First, he was trying to scratch them with a huge knife, then he put the tights on his head to show the size. And then a client came into the office and ran away as fast as he could — he saw a man with a giant knife in his hand and tights on his head! © Anna Limerick / Facebook

  • My wife decided to try going on a diet. She ate buckwheat all day. By the end of the day, she was really angry. And when it was around 11 p.m., she asked me, “Is tomorrow just 1 hour away?” © “Podlsushano” / Ideer

  • Around 6 years ago, I was taking a train from Amsterdam to Prague. In the same compartment with me, there were 2 newlyweds going on their honeymoon. They were very nice, polite guys. When we were offered sheets, they didn’t take them. The guy explained that they were afraid of sleeping on those sheets because they had no idea if they were clean or not. Then we decided to have a snack. The guy was eating some candy and dropped a piece on the floor. He picked it up and put it into his mouth like nothing happened. © Jerry15 / Pikabu

  • I was in Krakow, and a friend of a friend had recommended visiting a Harry Potter-themed cafe there. I searched it on Google Maps and got a location. Google implied that the cafe remained open till 10 p.m. We got to the location where Google Maps suggested — and nothing. We asked around to all the stores nearby if they had heard of such a cafe. Didn’t help. We had almost given up and thought they probably had closed down and Google just hadn’t updated it yet. But then one of us saw a cartoon of a witch flying on her broom at a shop nearby. We went inside. There was some repair work going on. But then, a dead end. Aw man, that’s disappointing. But just then, when we were turning back, we saw steps leading downstairs to a door. We knew we had found it. As soon as we opened the door, we knew this was it. Felt extremely elated. When we finally got inside, I complained at the counter, “There are not enough signboards. We had trouble finding this place.” She said, “It’s not for muggles.” © Piyush Lahoti / Quora

  • My 78-year-old grandma calls me and tells me that she has a fever and that pills didn’t help. She asked me to buy something for her. I went to the pharmacy and when I came to my grandma’s place, I asked her what pills she took. She showed me pills for 3-year-old children she got from her grandson. When I told her that they couldn’t work because they are for kids, she said, “Oh, how can pills know how old I am?” © “Podlsushano” / Ideer

  • This girl I used to work with was in a very toxic relationship. She told everyone she was secretly trying to get pregnant because if she did, her unemployed boyfriend would have to get a job and pay rent. She got pregnant and her boyfriend immediately dumped her. © booger-burger69 / Reddit

  • I worked as a sales assistant at a children’s store. Once, I saw a young couple shopping for a present for a child. A man picked up a 2,000-piece puzzle:
    — “Jane, let’s get this!”
    — “Are you crazy? She’s 1.5 years old!”
    — “I want it for us!”
    — “But she’ll throw the pieces around the entire house!”
    — “We’ll do it in the bathroom! She’s still scared to come in.”
    It’s been a long time since then and I still picture them doing this puzzle in the bathroom because they actually bought it. © “Podslushano” / Vk

  • I had a manager named Roxanne. She was a bleach blonde (she literally bleached her hair once a month and then wondered why it would break/fall out). Rocky was really obsessed with her looks and not much else. One day, she told me and a co-worker that she had her nose done so that her eventual children wouldn’t grow up with the same nose as her. She wasn’t kidding. The co-worker and I just looked at each other and walked away. We knew it wasn’t worth the effort. © Adastria / Reddit

  • First, a bank called me for 2 weeks convincing me to take a loan, then when I came to the office and spent several hours there, they refused! I was angry on my way home when I got a phone call from THE SAME bank, and I was offered a loan! © Marya Ivanovich / Facebook
