’’No good deed goes unpunished’’ is an old saying that, unfortunately, often turns out to be true.

Let me continue my world tour, and now we’re heading straight to Europe. Let’s start our journey in Greece, a place with thousands of years of history. Even in modern days, there are still ancient ruins there that are being carefully preserved, and it’s an interesting ride.The airport of Athens has a built-in museum with ancient artifacts. And here’s how ancient and modern coexist there: there’s the view of the Acropolis from the street. A Spartan roaming the streets of Greece. A Redditor shared a photo of a modern building built right over the ancient ruins. The visitors can see the ruins through the glass.Greece is also very well known for its cats roaming the streets everywhere. This Redditor spotted a cat guarding the National Bank of Greece. These days, everyone is trying to reduce the usage of plastic. Some use paper straws, and some go with glass straws... but this café in Greece offered to use macaroni as straws.
There’s a good reason the checkout lines are so tight. Let’s say you’re waiting there and, after you take one more look at your cart, you see there are certain things you don’t REALLY need, so it would be better not to buy them. So, you’re looking around trying to find a spot to leave them somewhere aside. Good luck with that!
Good morning! I’m so happy we’re gonna spend the day together. You see, I stayed up reading about all those common things that you and I never realized actually had purposes. My head’s brimming with all this knowledge! I need to unload it on someone. And you’re the perfect volunteer!
Hey, if I said “what time is it?”, you’ll probably look at your phone, laptop screen, or wristwatch to find out. But how do these devices know the time? In your devices, the time is set automatically by the program. But how does this program know the exact time? People set up wristwatches before the sale. But then how do these people know the time? (Does anybody really know what time it is? Hey there’s a song there.) Anyway, how do we determine this time, and what happens if all the clocks in the world stop? Wait a minute! Or longer...
If you weren’t lucky enough to be born rich, then, just like the rest of us mortals, you need to work. So you may find yourself in 2 situations: you land an excellent job, where people are respected and valued, or you get one with a toxic environment. Either way, the important thing is to recognize the difference between a good job and a bad one, so you can understand the red flags in the workplace and start looking for other options. In the end, no one deserves to be tied to certain types of bosses.
Some people believe that all wealthy people spend their money on whatever they want. But these actresses proved them wrong; despite earning millions of dollars per month, they remain grounded and humble. And this should be the case for us as well, since being humble costs nothing, but shows that our humility is our most valuable asset.
Everyday etiquette is not just about choosing the right fork for eating a salad. It is also expressing respect to oneself and to those around. Sometimes seemingly insignificant actions can show a person’s good manners, or, on the contrary, characterize them as a person who could easily insult others.
All of us have lots of habits that are firmly in our lives, and we don’t even notice them because they are just part of our everyday routines. But we never fail to see when someone else doesn’t turn the light off, forgets to lock the door, or puts a coffee jar on the wrong shelf.
We meet other people every day: communicate with them at work or during transport. Unfortunately, sometimes we happen upon people with ulterior motives who try to take advantage of any situation while being pretty arrogant about it. But they do it with an innocent face as if it’s totally okay.
Our reality is an entire industry of treasures and some of its creatures are made in limited editions. We can find such objects anywhere: in a mere supermarket, nature, or apartment. All we have to do is just open this box of puzzles and try to believe our own eyes.
Supermarket shelves are full of different goods that can satisfy any taste, and we often buy foods that we don’t want to eat immediately. Alas, many of them go bad, and we have to throw them away. Luckily, there are simple and reliable methods that will keep your foods fresh for longer.
Going to the supermarket is probably a daily or weekly routine for everyone. For some, it is a pleasure, while for others it can be an annoying chore. Each person goes through it in their own way, and this also speaks to their personality and their way of life.

When it comes time to make choices at the supermarket, some people may have the belief that the most expensive products are the best, but this is not always the case. Sometimes, you can optimize your budget by choosing inexpensive products that have the same quality as the more expensive ones. One alternative you can try is a private label of a large chain, which can offer the same products at lower prices since they don’t make significant investments in certain commercialization, distribution, marketing, and advertising processes.

A supermarket can tell you a lot about the residents of a country, like what people eat, what goods they buy most often, and how they behave in public places. Store staff members show the level of service while shelves display goods that can say way more about the culture of the country than any tourist attraction.
A true artist can find inspiration in almost anything, and it’s not surprising that for many of them, a boring city wall can turn into a perfect canvas. Animals, flowers, people, and even products from the local supermarket — anything can become a part of the city’s history preserved on its walls. Some of these fantastic murals go even further and show curious pieces of local life, like a dog that likes to chill next to a building, or fishermen dragging a boat into the sea across the beach.
Somewhere in a perfect world, manufacturers don’t try to be sneaky and save money when making certain products, internet shops send goods that look exactly like in the photos on their website, and restaurant dishes look exactly like they are shown on the menu. However, in the real world, even the purchases made in a supermarket can become an unpleasant surprise.
Hi, my name is Anatoly Kurganov. I used to work as an IT writer and an analyst. Now I am on paternity leave and raising 3 children. In my spare time, I lead the project Paparium, where I describe my parenting life. My friends, the talented artist Natalia and aspiring writer Oksana, help me create these comics.
Going to the supermarket can turn out to be quite an experience. Most people plan their “trip” ahead of time and even go at a particular hour to avoid having to wait in long lines. Everyone wants their visit to be as fast and efficient as possible. However, these places work in mysterious ways and always end up making us spend more time there than we had planned. If you can relate to this, don’t worry. We’ve all fallen for these tricks at some point, and it’s never too late to spot them so that you can do something about it.
Children are not just a joy for their parents, but they’re also little representatives of humanity who can think beyond stereotypes. That’s why their actions and sayings are so necessary at times. They help us remember that life is an exciting game full of humor.
Princess Diana would say, “Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.” Whether we call it karma or the law of the conservation of energy, it’s true that kind actions pay off sooner or later.
We all have come across stereotypes and prejudices regarding appearance, behavior, or social status. Public opinion lives its own life: it’s thanks to it that we often make irrational decisions while trying to build our lives based on it.
No one is safe from awkward situations. Any of us can get caught off guard in the most unexpected places, like in the check-out line at the supermarket, on public transport, or in a fitting room. And no matter how funny it may be to tell this story to friends and family later, we often will do our best not to find ourselves in a similar situation ever again.
The pleasant atmosphere, bright packaging, and discounted price tags make the supermarket an almost ideal place to shop. But this is all just part of their money-making scheme. Not all products are of good quality, and some of them can harm the body. In addition, discounts are often not profitable at all.
Being a cashier is a unique experience. There are so many people who buy things that are fairly unusual or that may not make any sense at all. These employees see countless customers on a daily basis, and not all of them buy the regular products you’d expect someone to get at a supermarket. A few of them have a pretty strange combination of products in their shopping carts and that’s when you know things will either get awkward or turn into a funny joke with the customer.
Marketing specialists are cunning and have a lot of tricks up their sleeves.

Even if you read thousands of reviews and used a dozen tips from friends and strangers, it’s still impossible to be 100% sure you won’t make a mistake.
In the modern world where many people only rely on themselves, simple things like caring about someone or helping them might seem like something outstanding. And it actually feels really nice to support someone you know or do something small for a complete stranger.
“Do you need a bag?” “Do you collect coupons?” “Cash or credit?” Many of us answer these questions almost automatically because we hear them every day. It seems that nothing extraordinary can happen at the supermarket. However, sometimes while paying for our groceries, we find ourselves in the epicenter of funny situations.
