On August 31, Fox News shared a photo of Cosby Show actor Geoffrey Owens bagging groceries at a Trader Joe's. The accompanying article, however, seemed to treat that job as shameful and lesser than other jobs. The internet community quickly rallied behind him, denouncing Fox for their critical coverage of a person making ends meet with a decent, well-paying job.

Owens himself made an appearance on Good Morning America to respond to Fox's initial story as well as the innumerable responses in his defense.


Owens's outlook was both inspirational and pragmatic—exactly what the world needs more of!



Many viewers also couldn't help but note Owen's hat/name-tag combo. A Yale graduate should feel free to work wherever he or she likes.



Every job is worthwhile.


And, in the meantime, it seem's Geoffrey's message has caught some eyes in Hollywood!

Sadly, because of the attention from Fox's story, it seems Geoffrey felt he needed to quit his job at Trader Joe's.

Hopefully the internet learned a lesson from this experience—no one should be shamed for their job, because there's nothing embarrassing about working hard to support yourself and your family, no matter where you do it.

I have a few wealthy friends and I've seen a thing or two that has made my eyes pop out of my head. Let's just say that the priorities of a wealthy person and a dude who has never broken six figures are entirely different. But that doesn't compare to working for the fabulously rich. A friend of mine was a nanny for a super rich family for several years and described the lavish trips she took with them (and how picky and out of touch they were, too).

People told us their own stories after Redditor NeighborhoodTrolley asked the online community,

"People who cater to the super rich: What things have you seen?"

Oh the matters of the heart are just never going to be easy. Love seems to be a never ending mess. I've dated a lot and can attest that the percentage of bad to good is 70/30. And that may be generous math.

I've heard about people fighting on dates, setting fire to the restaurant, discovering hidden identities and dramas I thought only ever occurred on daytime television.

I use to believe the biggest fear about dating was that the other person may turn out to be a serial killer, but they at least tend to show you a respectable time before they strike.

Oof. Let's see who has been left scarred by the hunt.

Redditor u/givemeyourfreefood wanted everyone to share the stories that almost made them re-think searching for love, by asking:

What's the worst date you ever had?
