25 Heartwarming Stories Of Celebrities Being Awesome In Public.

It's always pleasant to hear that our favorite celebrities go that extra mile in public to show that they're genuinely good people, and not just putting on an act.

Below are heartwarming stories of celebrities being just plain awesome to fans or co-workers. Check them out below! Sources to more stories can be found on the last page.

I worked at a large Manhattan restaurant which he frequented often. He was always accompanied by an entourage of his friends - never really celebrities, I got the impression they were childhood, high school, etc friends.

In any event, they would order nearly everything on the menu. I'm talking, literally, hundreds of dishes and proceed to gorge themselves silly. All the while, Adam would barely eat as many, many people would approach and ask him for a photo, a handshake, or a joke.

He obliged everyone. He was patient, kind and compassionate to every person that came up to him. He never ate, he just took his crew to town and held court, kindly and humbly, making sure to thank everyone who approached him for taking the time to say hi, congratulate him on a movie, or what not.

This particular restaurant was frequented, at the time, by celebrities quite often and they varied in their appreciation of the public. Adam Sandler was in a class of his own. I have always maintained that he is the nicest guy in the business out there as he proved it again and again.

Cristiano Ronaldo. He's amazing to fans. I remember watching a video where he came through the airport, tired from a long flight back into Madrid and there was a few kids bunched around the gate. One was crying just at the sight of him. Cristiano stopped, signed his shirt and book, and gave him a hug and a few pictures.

Also, when he did the comedy skit in Madrid where he pretended to be a destitute guy on the streets doing skills and the kid came over and played with him. They had a small game going before Cristiano scooped the ball up, signed it, revealed himself, and gave the kid another massive hug and a few pictures before the media swamp started when everyone realised who he was.

He also does a lot for UNICEF and other children's charities.

I spoke with Larry David when they were filming Curb Your Enthusiasm in New York City a few years ago. He is exactly like he portrays himself on his show. He ended our conversation with "I think we're good here."


Run-to-the-sun

My brother and I used to act when we were younger, and my parents would take us to auditions and we tried to get any part in anything. Well, my brother got a little tiny part in Bruce Almighty. We got to go on set and kind of wander about and it was pretty fun. My brother was little and wanted to meet Jennifer Aniston, so he asked around and finally got a hold of her. We had lunch with her on set and she was such an amazing, down to earth person. She didn't act like she was a big shot, she wasn't stuck up, and needless to say it was the coolest lunch ever.

James Franco was doing a book signing in Tribeca about three years ago and I went with my mom and best friend. He was really nice and laid back but the manager only gave each of us about 15 seconds to speak to him and wouldn't let him personalize the books or sign anything else,despite the fact that he offered to sign whatever we wanted. He even told everyone he would wait outside so this way he could sign more stuff for us.

When I actually went up to meet him, he was really nice and asked how I was and was surprised that I mentioned his role as James Dean as being one of my favorites. He tried to get more time with everyone but the manager was flipping out on anyone who stayed for more than 10-15 seconds. When my mom went up he told her we look exactly alike and touched her hand while thanking her for coming.

I met Jimmy Fallon during a showing of The Book of Mormon musical. Some friends and I had amazing seats during the first month of its initial run in NYC and during intermission we noticed that Jimmy Fallon was directly behind us. My friend is brave as can be and just struck up a conversation with him, which I of course wanted in on. First thing I noticed is he is much taller than I had expected. He was at least 6'. He also has a deeper more gravelly voice too. He had stage makeup on, so I imagine he had just finished up filming his show.

He was polite and we got a picture with him but I could tell he really wasn't interested in talking with us. That was until we told him that we were former Mormon missionaries. Then he got REALLY excited and started asking us all sorts of questions about the show, if we were offended, if we were still missionaries etc. He just lit up after that and we talked for a few more minutes.

The best part was he had a Book of Mormon cast member on his show a couple months later and he mentioned he had met some "Mormon missionaries" in the audience who loved the musical. It was great to hear that he remembered us!


Flaghead

Aaron Paul is not just one of the nicest celebrities I've ever met, he's one of the nicest people I've ever met.

I said hello to him at Heathrow and he thanked me for being a fan, was very gracious, but then he turned it around and started asking me about what I was doing in London and what I did for a living, so we talked about that for a minute.

Gordon Ramsay challenged a prison inmate to an onion cutting competition. The guy was about twice as fast as him. Gordon stopped chopping and just watched him for a minute until the other guy noticed Gordon had stopped. Gordon asked him when he got out and the guy said sometime early the next year. He offered him a job the moment he got out. The guy just laughs a bit till he realizes he is serious. The guy is now one of the head chefs at one of Gordon's restaurants in the UK.

Terry Crews apparently he used to be a big jerk to his wife and family while he was in the NFL. He did some interview talking about the pressures of the NFL making him feel like he had to be that dominating mean guy, but eventually saw how he was totally wrong. He is now a big advocate against domestic violence and is a much more peaceful and loving person. Lots of respect for him.

Marilyn Manson

I went to his concert and then after to a diner for some food. When I walked into the diner, I noticed Manson sitting in a booth with Twiggy. The waitress walked me to my table, past his booth, so I decided to tell him how great his show was. He was very appreciative of the compliment and invited me to eat with them. Best meal ever. He and Twiggy were so kind, funny and intelligent.

Years later, I went to another Manson concert and met him backstage. He remembered eating with me at the diner. I couldn't believe he remembered me. I will never forget those two encounters. Great guy.


Truthisoutthere89

I had Steve Buscemi in my taxi about a year ago. He was incredibly down to earth. I treated him just like any other customer and I think he appreciated it. 

We had a good conversation, he asked me lots of questions and seemed genuinely interested in what I had to say. At the end of the ride, he reached over the seat and shook my hand and introduced himself. When he said "My name is Steve" I lost my professionalism. "I know, I'm a huge fan!" It was so hard to play it cool and not go total fanboy the whole way.


666oderus666

Danny Trejo. Everyone who's ever worked with him describes him as a teddy bear. Former gang member who's helped other members get out of the life. When one of his favorite taco joints in LA got tagged with homophobic slurs, he rallied the community to repaint the place.

Leo Messi seems like an all around nice guy.

In a way, he is probably one of the biggest international superstars there is, but he is really just a shy, reserved guy who married a hometown girl that he had a crush on since he was a kid and is focused on being a family man.

While lots of major athletes seem to thrive on attention and being singled out for praise, it always seems to make him bashful and uncomfortable.

Other players all say he is very nice and welcoming, a fellow player recently wrote a piece and mentioned that if someone asks him for something to auction for a charity he will just pull off the boots he's wearing, sign them, and give them to the person. He also started a charitable organization dedicated to helping sick kids, because he had some serious health problems as a kid himself.

Alice Cooper is a seriously nice guy.

We were at the same restaurant in Vegas. I didn't want to be a total goon and bother him, so I asked a waiter if he could ask if a fan could say hello (he wasn't eating, just waiting around). He waved me over, introduced me to his son, and we had some small talk. Big smile the whole time, made a few jokes.

Christian Bale was one of the coolest, nicest people I had the chance to meet while working as an assistant to a famous filmmaker. He and my boss went out to a rented racetrack in the desert for a track day with formula Renault's and CB's bike. He was very cordial and polite, was willing to talk and chew the fat.

My main job of the day was to get lunch for everyone and Christian was cool, had a very easy order, just wanted a sandwich, no crazy instructions. Best of all, when we were all done with lunch, he helped me clean up. I in no way expected his assistance and would have thought he was just as nice had he not helped but it really meant a lot. Not many of the people I was working with at the time would have bothered to help me out, but he did.

It doesn't sound like much, but when you are relegated to the grunt work on an outing, getting help feels really good.

I got to hang out with Anne Hathaway about 10 or so years ago. My best friend's mom was married to Anne's uncle so we got to hang out in a family setting. She is one of the nicest people around and her family members definitely keep her grounded.

meagorilla

Mr Rogers. It's not an act, he really was an extremely nice guy and a decent human being. I respect this man more than any famous person I could think of.

Millions of children watched him every day, and thousands would send fan mail. And every day he would sit down and write a personal and thought out reply to every single one

Not a PR person, not some appointee to collect or read his mail. He would answer every single one.

How much love does that take?

People who worked with him noted that the "worst" thing he'd ever say is when he came in (extremely early as always) and would see an exceptionally large pile of letters, he would say "mercy", and get to work.

He dealt with topics such as divorce with a lot of tact.

People who worked for him said that he would often try and get to know them and would even call them later to ask how they were doing.

Once, on a trip up to a PBS executives house, he heard the limo driver was going to have to wait outside for two hours, so Mr. Rogers insisted that the driver come inside and join them. On the way back, Rogers sat up front, and when he learned that they were passing the driver's house on the way, he asked if they could stop in to meet the family. And according to the driver, it was one of the best nights of his life. Mr. Rogers played songs on the piano for the family and talked with them throughout the night.

I threw up on Arnold Schwarzenegger's foot outside a restaurant. His response was an immediate: "Its okay kid, I throw up every time I eat here too." His wife then proceeded to run inside and grab me water and a bit of bread to settle my stomach. They were both incredibly nice about it all.

I worked at the Apple Store in Los Angeles when Neil Patrick Harris came in and I helped him out. I realized I couldn't pretend that I didn't know who he was, so I tried to figure out something not lame that I could say. About an hour before he came in to the store he tweeted about it being National Suit Day and for people to tweet pictures on them in their suits. He was actually not wearing a suit but jokingly I said "I saw you tweeted its National Suit Day...why aren't you wearing your suit?" He laughed and said he would be in it later when he gets to work. He was a super nice guy.

Robin Williams, very friendly and funny, more so then I expected honestly. I went to a dinner with my father and a couple of his co-workers at a fancy Italian restaurant when I was about 18 and about halfway through the meal, a few of the co-workers got drunk and started to scream at the waiter in Italian. In response the waiter, and eventually a few other workers, joined in and were screaming back at the co-workers. 

Then in between all of them came Robin Williams gesticulating wildly and screaming mock Italian at both sides until they calmed the hell down and started to laugh at Robin Williams and his antics instead. When everyone went back to their seats I walked up to Robin Williams, thanked him for defusing the situation, and did the usual "I love your work, it's amazing to meet you" spiel and then he began to ask ME questions about my life, how I am, my age, what I wanted to do and was very friendly and caring. When I was walking away back to my dad he stopped me and said words I try to live by, "Kid, take a good look at those suits. Don't try to end up like them. If you need booze or drugs to enjoy your life to the fullest then you're doing it wrong."


CaptainJudaism

Donald Glover was one of the funniest people I've ever gotten to meet. He came to my school as our comedian, but then did an impromptu rap show off his laptop. Which was awesome.

Afterwards, I got to meet him. Where he proceeded to make fun of me for being homeschooled. Even though I was in college.


that1pianogirl

I met George W. Bush at an event. I realize he's not the most popular, but he is one of the most charismatic, fun-loving guys I have met. He gives and does so much for charities its ridiculous. He has a fantastic sense of humor and even without the camera's rolling wouldn't bash Obama. His wife was very gracious and the picture of how a first lady should be.

Richard_Fitzsnuggly

A former co-worker worked on a popular TV show that Bryan Cranston guest Starred on post-Breaking Bad. Co-worker told him at the appropriate time what a fan he was of Breaking Bad. Mr. Cranston thanked him, but then days later, after he wrapped, came back into the production office pulled up a chair, sat at my co-worker's desk and asked, "So. What do you wanna talk about?" The two then spent 45 minutes bonding over their love of Breaking Bad.

My family and I met Tracy Morgan in the food court of some mall in San Francisco a few years ago. He was sitting in the corner with a few friends just hanging out, but when he got up to leave, he walked right past our table. As he walked past, my brother (who was 17 and really into football at the time) said, 'Hi' and Tracy stopped and talked with us for at least five minutes, asking my brother about how his football team was doing and what position he played, making jokes and all that. I didn't really know what to expect but he was a super nice guy, and very friendly.

WampaStompa33

When I was about 9, my mom took me and brother on a vacation and we stayed in a nice hotel in Toronto. Our room was next to a room that was hosting a loud party and after hearing some commotion in the hallway, she discovered a few naked people running around the hallways. 

She knocked on the door and requested that they tone it down. It turns out the room belonged to rapper DMX, whom my older brother was a huge fan of. Not only did he stop partying to say hi to us, sign autographs and give us some swag, we found out on checking out that he has payed for the whole stay. I think he's pretty cool.

Have you ever found yourself in an argument so stupid and/or pointless that you were sure you were being punked? Like you keep looking away from the other person to check your surroundings for places Ashton Kutcher and a camera crew could come popping out of?

You're not the only one.

u/Anti-hollowkid asked: What is the dumbest argument you've ever been in?

Brace yourselves, folks. Some of these arguments are breathtakingly bonkers. The sheer number of people who are willing to argue with someone over provable facts and what that other person likes or doesn't like is just ... stunning. It's stunning, you guys. Just not in a good way.

I Know What I Like

Giphy

My wife and I once argued over whether or not I liked mustard on my hot dog. I was for me liking mustard, she was against me liking mustard.

The argument lasted way longer that you could ever imagine it would.

A Stair Step

My brother and I argued if our staircase had 13 or 14 steps, based on an argument about if the floor of the second floor counts as a stair-step or not. We still have no solution.

My dad is a stairbuilder and I spent many summers working at his warehouse, so I can clear this up. 14.

Saturdays

My husband and I have this thing where we only say "I love you" on Saturdays. Every other day it's "I love you, but only on Saturdays." I don't know how it started, but it's been going for 11 years now.

We're both shiftworkers, so sometimes we have to stop and think what day it actually is. We had an argument recently over whether it was Saturday or not. I said it was Saturday, he said it was Friday. It was Monday.

Iraq

I remember when I was about 13 my parents had an hour-long shouting match that ended with them almost getting divorced. The issue? Whether or not the nation of Iraq has a coastline.

My mother arguing that Iraq had a coastline, while my stepdad argued that it did not. This was back in 2004, and they are still quite happily married to this day. That incident is something they look back on and laugh about, and both of them admit it was really a pretty stupid thing to argue over.

$40

With an ex:

"I owe you $80 for the bills of ours that you pay, and you owe me $40 for the bills of ours that I paid. Here's $40 in cash; we're even."

She did not understand this.

I literally had to go get another $40 out of the ATM, and hand the $80 to her. Then I had her hand me the $40 she owed me.

"Now how much do you have in your hand?"

She still didn't understand.

She somehow has a college degree.

Mini Wheats

When we were kids my brother and I got in a physical fight because he said I like mini wheats and I insisted I didn't. His argument was that I always sang the mini wheats song and I was deeply offended that he wasn't aware that it was just stuck in my head but I hated the cereal. I actually did like the cereal I'm not sure why I was arguing with him about it but I remember how genuinely angry I was.

Crayons

Giphy

I'll tell you about the only legal trouble I've ever been in, the fight that got me arrested. It started over whether we should return a box of crayons or not, and to this day I don't have any idea how it escalated to the point of the cops being called, but they were and I was the one taken in.

That's Unfair

My boyfriend insisted that when two people are in an argument and one makes a point so reasonable and logical the other one can't disagree with it - it's unfair. I tried, logically and reasonably, to explain several times why that is just winning the argument, proving your point thoroughly and is completely fair.

His answer was that I was being unfair.

- ShyAcorn

Pure Masochism

How the ch in masochism is pronounced. My friend caught me saying "masoKism" while he would say "masoSYism."

To be fair, he grew up speaking French, in which the ch in masochism is pronounced in "his" way. But he insisted that I was the wrong one here and that was just infuriating.

Emailing NASA

A woman was adamant that looking at the big solar eclipse on the television was unsafe unless you were wearing glasses. She wouldn't believe us and insisted on emailing NASA to check.

A Non-Standard Ruler? 

I worked for a company that made signs. We had a customer ask for signs that were 7mm wide that were to go on a door. Our sign makers figured the order meant inches because 7mm is pretty small, so made them 7 inches. I got a phone call from the customer who went mad at me for making them the wrong size. So I put a reorder through for 7 mm.

Argued with the sign makers over it but they eventually agreed to do it after I shown them the order in writing. I even had the customer put her complaint in writing, reiterating the size they wanted.

7mm signs went out and a day later I get the customer on the phone literally screaming at me.

Cue the dumb argument - we ended up having an argument over how big a millimetre is, and obviously everyone in the office were laughing, but this customer just wouldn't accept it and said we must be using a non-standard ruler to measure.

Ended up being escalating to the sales department manager who refused to issue a refund. We still don't know what they actually meant.

This Unusual Vegan Argument

Was in a pub with a few friends, and some random Dude dropped an ear, and somehow figured I'm vegan. Well, people like him are the reason I usually avoid mentioning it. He came up to me and insisted on starting a discussion about veganism. He claimed that by the end of it, I would be eating meat again.

He listed some stupid arguments, I told him I was not convinced and then tried to keep on drinking beer with my friends. He followed me, and wanted me to "try to convert him to a vegan." I stupidly listed some of my reasons thinking it would make him go away. He told me he still was not convinced, so I was like whatever. Again, I really just wanted to drink beer with my friends.

That dude followed me all night and expected me to try make him vegan. Doesn't matter what I said, and all the reasons that for me are obviously good enough to be vegan. He'd be just like "No, that doesn't convince me, therefore your argument and how you life is stupid."

Didn't matter how often I told him that I honestly don't care; 5 minutes later he would come up to me again "I'm still not vegan, so veganism is stupid, all your arguments were stupid, now give me a good reason to become vegan!" At one point, I was literally yelling at him that I don't give a single flying f about what he eats and why, that it's in no way my responsibility to "turn somebody vegan" and in no way his business what I eat.

Honestly, for that dude, I would have bought a whole ham, just to shove it up his stupid annoying face.

Monty Python

In college my roommate and I argued about a line in Monty Python & the Holy Grail. The scene with the Black Knight where the line "Alright, we'll call it a draw" is uttered. We argued about who said that line, whether it was King Arthur or the Black Knight.

It went on for hours longer than it should have because I was stubborn and refused to admit I was wrong.

Below Sea Level

I live on an island and when you go upland and you look out the sea looks like it's higher than or on the same level as the land. It's just a weird perspective thing because of the horizon. One day some kid says that it's because the island is under sea level.


I'm like wtf bro all of us would be with the fishes. He argues that no that's not true and if I just go upland I'll see. We then spend a good 5 minutes of my time arguing about it until I decided to leave this kid in his stupidity. He even said we shouldn't believe everything adults tell us and sometimes we need to think for ourselves.

This kid was older than me and was going to a good school. Lost my respect for him ever since then.

Tomash

Someone tried to fight with me over how to spell my name.

Now, my name is in a lot of languages with slightly different spellings. I would have accepted any of those spellings, but this one was just... Not even close. It didn't make any logical sense.


An analogous example is if my name was Thomas and someone was insisting it was spelled Tomash. And not just the name Thomas in general, but that me specifically, on my birth certificate, was named Tomash. I know how to spell my own name.

I swear to god, it went on for like an hour.

Whales Are Mammals

No Balloons For Grandma

My cousin and I argued over a balloon going to Heaven. We were at his big sisters prom send off and he let a balloon go and it went high into the sky.

He then said this balloon will go up past space and go to Heaven and reach grandma (God rest her soul). And I was like no it's not and it's probably not even gonna reach space. Releasing balloons is terrible for the environment and kills/harms so much wildlife.

He got really mad and defensive and started telling me to google it and do my research and I'm like I don't have to google it you idiot. He was mad at me for a good week.

Spontaneous Dolphin Existence

Giphy

How dolphins reproduced. It took me a few solid minutes of explaining to her that dolphins have reproductive organs and that they did not just pop into existence. The argument began with her saying she wanted to work with sea creatures.

Personally, I hope she was messing with me cause I lost a little faith in humanity that day.

My brother is colorblind. And he CONSTANTLY tries to correct me on what color things are.

"Hey could you hand me that red _____?"

"that's orange"

It is the base of our most common and heated arguments.

Andre 2000?

Giphy

I'm late, but I saw this question and instantly remembered that I was booted from a Facebook group because I called someone out on a lie that was not only bull, but extremely pointless. She was friends with the moderator and they made the case that my argument over such a little lie was more of a problem than the lie itself (though they didn't refer to it as a lie.)


The woman said that she used to babysit for Andre 3000 and that his name was Andre 2000 - but he changed it after the year 2000 had passed. This was so easily disproven it was ridiculous. Their debut album came out in 1994 and he was already going by Andre 3000 at that time.

The argument wasn't a huge long drawn out thing, but the fact that either of us were on Facebook at separate times meant that the responses were over a long period of time so this argument lasted a few days.

It was stupid.

Stars Like Our Sun

I was arguing with my grandpa about stars he didn't believe that there are other stars like our sun. Basically he thought there is only the sun, the moon and the earth.

Richard Nixon

I have a degree in history. I mostly focused on nationalism. Wrote a 50 page paper on it and Richard Nixon with around 50 100 sources. Looked at micro film for hours on end. Part of the paper focused on how Nixon being chair of the house committee of Unamerican Activities was used as a powerful weapon to use against political enemies. It also inspired Joe McCarthy. Have had people tell me I was wrong and Nixon was never elected to a position besides the president and Joe McCarthy came before Nixon. I stopped trying to talk history to people.


I also know quite a bit about the history of the Balkans its amazing how many Serbs refuse to believe Tito did anything wrong.

Wrote 100 page paper on nationalism in Israel. Its frustrating to talk about because for some reason a lot of people think Palestinian firing rockets randomly into Israel is ok but if Israel retaliates the people get up in arms over a targeted air strike that kills 3 people.

Binder Clips

I got into an argument with a co-worker over how we were attaching two pages of a letter together: small binder clips or paper clips.

He felt that paper clips would leave a "dent" in the paper when removed, but binder clips won't. He refused to staple them together. I felt that binder clips would also leave a "dent", so we might as well just use the paper clips.

It ended with him saying: "Do what you want [me], I don't care!" and storming off.

Jewish

Once got accused of faking being Jewish. Why? I have no clue. We argued over the course of a month, any time I'd bring it up and she heard about it, she'd begin going after me for "faking it".

My mother's side is ethnically Jewish. Grandparents were practicing.

Nutella

Giphy

3 friends and I once got into an argument about how to pronounce Nutella. It lasted for about 3-4 months. It was hilarious how serious we took it, it'd get heated but never for real serious.

I think someone even called the company that made it to check, or that may have been for the Cheetos company. We were really bored in high school.

Lingerie Boxes

Late to the party, but there it is.

I'm a manager at a small store. We're only 4 working there, so my team and I grew very close and we joke around a lot. Once during a slow shift, my employee and I had an argument because we were looking at the lingerie boxes, and I thought that two specific boxes had the same woman on it, but she was 100% positive they weren't the same person.

Looking back, I don't know why it was such a big deal to us at the time, but we even called another employee who lives across the street to come and tell us what the heck was up with that. Turns out I was right, and she was pretty salty about it. It was a great night.

Wicked Witch of the West

I almost got into an argument with an old girlfriend over Glinda the good witch from Oz. She insisted that Glinda was manipulating Dorothy to assassinate the Wicked Witch of the West and convince the Wizard to leave to create a political void she could fill.

I conceded the issue when I heard the whole premise because I thought it was too damn stupid to get worked up over.

Keep Your Hands to Yourself

Just the other day I legit got in an argument with my co-workers on why I don't like my butt being grabbed by anyone (I'm a guy). Seriously.

They went on about "I don't mind it. Mike and I do it all the time and we don't care." Yeah, that's nice dude, but I'm not you, and there's something called "Keep your hands to yourself" (which was taught to a good portion of us growing up). Just like how Karen wouldn't like it if I touched her boobs or her grabbing your crotch or frankly ANY area you wouldn't like being grabbed, keep away. In general, you should not be touching me in any areas after I've told you not to several times before.

So unless you're sleeping me or dating me, keep your damn hands off my toosh.

Telekinesis

My best friend and I argued over whether or not telekinesis was possible. Her argument was that humans don't yet know what the human brain at 100% usage was capable of, and that telekinesis was inside the possibilities.

I said the brain does use 100%, just at different times.

We didn't speak to each other for four days.

Ghosts

How dolphins reproduced and whether or not ghost existed (back to back with the same person). It took me a few solid minutes of explaining to her that dolphins have reproductive organs and that they did not just pop into existence (the argument began with her saying she wanted to work with sea creatures).


How it shifted to the existence of ghosts is a solid and reasonable question to ask (I don't remember why). I had to then proceed to tell her that ghost hunting TV shows do not constitute as undeniable evidence.

Personally, I hope she was messing with me cause I lost a little faith in humanity that day. This was in high school SO... hopefully she was kidding.

Dogs and Chocolate

Giphy

I told this stupid woman that chocolate is toxic to dogs. She went on to tell me how a little bit will just make them hyper and then they will calm down. I told her to google it. Her and her bf shut right up. Now they have a kid. Good luck, Jeremy and Andrea. morons.

I should also add that this argument started because Jeremy was giving his tiny dog chocolate and I told him it was toxic.

Is water wet?

My roommate and I have a recurring argument over whether or not water is wet l, and whether or not a person is considered wet underwater.

For the record, it is no to both questions.

Mission Trip

A kid a church telling me about the mission trip I went on. Not only was I not on that trip, but I had never been on any mission trip. We were good friends, so it's not like he would've mistaken someone else for me.

He insisted I was there as if an entire week long trip would just fall out of my memory. He even had stories of things we'd done together. I'm not sure if he thought I was lying, joking, stupid, or crazy, but I was pretty sure he was some combination thereof.

Dragon Tales

One time I got into a shouting match with my mom and little brother in the car. The issue? The names of the two-headed dragon from the PBS kids afternoon show Dragon Tales. I swore it was Zack and Macie.

It was actually Zak and Wheezie. I don't even remember why we were yelling about it.

Green Or Yellow?

When I was about 15 or so my mother and I spent about 20-30 minutes arguing about the color of a shirt. We agreed it was blue/green, but to me it was just a shade more blue, while to her it was just a bit more green.

Turns out, your eyeballs yellow as you age and hers were 24 years yellower than mine, so I think that skewed her color vision.

Stars In Their Multitude

Giphy

I once got in an argument over whether or not a line from the song "Stars" in Les Mis says "...but mine is the way of the lord" or "mine is the way of the law".

I didn't even really care what he thought but he was so adamant and cocky that it got me heated. By the end of it we were shouting at each other and I had to apologize, which I think is what he wanted the whole time.

Colorblind

My brother is colorblind. And he CONSTANTLY tries to correct me on what color things are.

"Hey could you hand me that red _____?" "that's orange" "no, it's red" "orange" "YOU CANT EVEN KNOW".

It is the base of our most common and heated arguments.

Hot Water

About five years ago, my girlfriend (now wife) once had a very intense argument about whether or not hot water cleaned things better than cold water.

She genuinely believed that water temperature didn't matter. This is someone who has not one, but two masters degrees.

We argued for something like 2 hours, and we seriously almost broke up over the whole thing.

Biology Class

I had an argument with a girl IN THE MIDDLE OF A BIOLOGY CLASS in high school about how humans are not mammals. She thought a human was a human and we are not mammals because "mammals are animals and humans are not animals"

I tried explaining to her the difference between reptiles and mammals and how humans fall under the mammal category to try and educate her... but she just wouldn't listen.

I still have no idea why the BIOLOGY teacher did not get involved...

Solid Or Liquid?

Some classmates and I got into a heated debate as to whether or not the human body could count as a soup, salad, or sandwich. The teacher got mad at us, but hey! All we were doing was watching a movie.

For the record, my logic lays with soup- Liquid contained within a solid, at a hot temperature.
