Elementary school is where we first begin learning about the real world.

We learn math and reading and writing, sure, but we also learn how to share, how to apologize, how to work together and respect each other.

Big stuff!


But it's also where we start learning about what petty, jealous monsters human beings can be. And it is that lesson that one little girl learned this week—and she was emphatically NOT. HAVING. IT.

Tabitha Garcia, a mom from Texas, shares her daughter Taylor's most adorable and funny moments on her Instagram page @tabgeezy. Her most recent post showed a whole other side to the usually smily Taylor.

In short: if you come for Taylor's favorite pencil, Taylor will come for YOU.

See, Taylor recently received a special pink pencil as an award for perfect attendance at school. A high honor.

And it seems SOMEONE, who will remain NAMELESS but is DEFINITELY NAMED LIZZIE, decided Taylor's pink perfect attendance pencil was now HERS.

The gall...

So how did this all go down?

Well, let Taylor tell you.

Prepare to be outraged.

So just to recap: Taylor put her special Pink Pencil for Perfect Attendance in the sharpening box and when she went to retrieve it, it was gone.

Then later, she saw Lizzie using her pencil—LIZZIE, who'd had the unmitigated temerity to be in CA-NA-DA and hence could not possibly have perfect attendance.

JUDGMENT FOR THE PLAINTIFF.

On the other hand, Tabitha may have a point.

It is just a pencil, and they do all write the same. That's fair, and—wait, you know what? NO.

This is egregious. Are we now in a world where people can just say "LOL this is mine now bye"? Who does this Lizzie person think she is, Christopher Columbus‽‽ This is an absolute outrage.

JUSTICE FOR TAYLOR!

Anyway, Taylor's recent lesson in the unfairness of life definitely struck a chord with the internet.

Safe to say Taylor has plenty of back-up!

The message here is clear: In a world of Lizzies, be a Taylor. Put THAT in the second grade textbooks.

So let's talk about how a dog owner on Facebook learned her dog's "adorable" behavior was, in fact, furious masturbation.

Readers, if you know anything about me you know I love a good plot twist and I love chonky puppers.

Yesterday, life combined my two great loves in a hilarious and inappropriate way.

I was mindlessly scrolling through my dog groups on Facebook when a video with a few hundred laugh reacts but almost no comments caught my eye.

The still from the video was a pudgy little Frenchie, so obviously I had to read and watch.

Have you ever fantasized about what it would be like to win the lottery? Having money for the rest of your life, as far as the eye can see, to cover your expenses.

And have you thought about all the things you would buy if you could really afford them? Are they ALL practical things, or are some of them silly?

We always love to fantasize about what life would be like if money were no object. And you are not alone!

One of the most freeing realizations I've had was when I understood that not everyone was going to like me.

That's just the way it is for all of us, and I learned that it would be unfair for me to dedicate so much time worrying about what others might think.

It changed my life—improved it, I'd say.

That, combined with my willingness to take responsibility for my own actions, was crucial to my self-development.

Whether it's an epiphany or experience, there are many things that can happen and can successfully shift your perspective.

People shared their stories after Redditor drewyourstory asked the online community:

"What life event or experience changed your perspective?"
