You're hungry one night, so you order food. You select your items, go to place your order, and see that the order has an extra $15 in fees tacked on to it, and that's not even including tip!

Believe it or not, there was a time before delivery services. You can very easily just call the restaurant you want and place the order directly. It's pretty easy–and you and the restaurant get to avoid the middle man.

But delivery services have become so ubiquitous over the years that many of us just put up with it. They're legitimate services but honestly, when you see the final price tag, how could you not feel like you've been totally scammed?

People shared their thoughts after Redditor AnnFaulskabek asked the online community,

"What is a legitimate product / service that still feels like a scam?"

"At first I didn't mind..."

"YouTube Premium. At first I didn’t mind the single ad you could skip but now it’s up to two long ads you can’t skip with the mid-roll ads thrown in. They keep upping the ante to force you to subscribe to Premium."


Given the increasingly high number of ads on YouTube, it's pretty astounding that I haven't signed up for Premium yet.

"When you work out..."

"Overdraft fees. When you work out the effective interest rates on overdraft fees, you find there’s a lot of hurting people paying interest that would make a loan shark blush."


Yep, what's up with those?

They're actually a thing. Just try explaining to someone who doesn't know how you get punished for having no money so you have to pay more money and see how they react.

"Phones that no longer..."

"Phones that no longer come with Micro SD card slots so you have to pay for cloud storage if you need more."


One of the most frustrating things. It was so much easier before!

"In the U.S..."

"In the U.S. Having to do my own taxes or pay a company to do my taxes even though the IRS already has all the relevant information."


Well, let's be clear: They don't have everything. What happens if you have items you need to deduct? They definitely don't know how much you've donated to charity.

"There used to be restrictions..."

"Credit/interest rates. There used to be restrictions on who gets a loan and what the rates could be, but private enterprise I guess."


When it comes to having no credit or bad credit, I would choose no credit every single time.

"Insanely good prices..."

"Humble Bundle. Insanely good prices and I can select where my payment goes, so I could donate 100% to the charity. It feels like it's too good to be true. I'm still blown away by it."


Never heard of this before and now I will be on the prowl. Going to do some reading and see if it lives up to the hype.

"Enjoy your entry level job..."

"Student loans."

"Oh, you graduated cum laude? Enjoy your entry level job that barely covers the interest on your monthly payment."


Hahahaha don't make me cry.

Please, stop.



"Like how the f**k are people are still buying them is beyond me but like, I have one for school and that motherf**ker dies an hour after taking it off the charger. And I don’t even keep background tabs running."

"The whole Dell company is literally a f**king scam."


I think I forget that Dell laptops exist until I see comments like these.

I'll go back to being ignorant, thanks.

"The 15 different streaming services..."

"The 15 different streaming services that you have to sign up for to watch the one good exclusive show on each one instead of just being able to watch them all in one place."


Streaming could have put an end to piracy but then they got so greedy.

"You can't really get away from them."

"My electric company also providing water, natural gas, landline phone and internet."

"You can't really get away from them. Even if you live in an area of town where you can get AT&T or Suddenlink, you still have to pay the electric company for everything else."


Say what! They really have a perfect monopoly going on, don't they?

Well, well, well... there are many things we could add to the list, to be fair.

Like health insurance in the United States. What's up with that? It would be comical if it wasn't so evil.

What do you think is missing from this list? Feel free to tell us more in the comments below!

People Break Down The Exact Moment They Realized Their Friends Were A-Holes

Most people have friends they've been close to for most of their lives.

But at the same time, friends evolve, and everyone finds themselves losing touch with any number of people they at one point considered their friends over time.

Most of the time, this isn't intentional, but just simply happens.

On rare occasions though, people might realize that their friends were not exactly who they thought they were, and didn't like who they revealed themselves to be.

When visiting any foreign country, one should always be familiar with the laws and customs of the land.

After all, what might be generally accepted on your home turf, might be frowned upon, if not illegal, elsewhere.

For that matter, even locals might need a refresher course on what they can and can't do while at home.

Who doesn't love a good joke?

And one needn't be a professional comedian to always have a joke in their back pocket to make people laugh.

Particularly as there are certain types of jokes which are almost always guaranteed to elicit at least a tiny chuckle.

They could be knock-knock jokes, "little johnny" jokes, and of course the "yo mamma" jokes.

Though always teetering on the boundaries of good taste, the possibilities of jokingly insulting the mother of a friend, or foe, are endless, and more often than not, hilarious.
