Someone Put Photoshop To Its Best Use To Get Out Of Work, And The Internet Is Seriously Impressed

We've all come up with absurd lies to skip work, but this Photoshop wizard is next-level.


Twitter user @PapaBoardslide's tweet blew up after his simple photo-edit helped pull off a classic excuse. Yeah, you can call in and say you've got a flat tire...but with Photoshop skills like this, fantasy becomes reality.

On closer inspection, the edit isn't that convincing, with a tire-wrench weirdly suspended in air and the minivan's entire rim changing color — but it somehow worked!

A little Photoshop magic finessed this guy's tire flat and tricked his boss.

Despite some glaring mistakes, the mad man seems to have gotten away with his digital trickery. Unless his boss sees the tweet, which got over 100k likes in 24 hours.

People online reacted to the questionable Photoshop attempt.




A couple people shared similar stories of trickery.



Others didn't think the edit was such a great idea.



Meanwhile, @PapaBoardwalk celebrated his viral tweet.

He also clarified the picture was taken two years ago.

Others admitted they'd also do anything to skip work.

The lesson here: if you're going to do a bad Photoshop to avoid work, hope your boss is completely oblivious.

Your home should be sanctuary, which is to say that we hope that nothing bad ever happens once we move in. Unfortunately, life doesn't always work out that way, and sometimes things happen that unnerve the hell out of us.

Is there anything more creepy than being alone at home... only to get the feeling that you're not alone at all? What if you were being watched?! It's the stuff of nightmares, isn't it? And I haven't even touched on the possibility of paranormal activity yet...

People Describe The Moment They Realized They've Been Doing Something Wrong For Years

It can be very embarrassing when you pronounce words wrong. Let's face it, the English language is super complicated, especially if you're learning it for the first time. You can't always trust yourself to pronounce things phonetically either because of all the different rules!

Recently, a relative pronounced the word "epitome" like "epi-tome." They were embarrassed when I corrected them. I told them that it wasn't a big deal, though they did note that they love that word, have used it for a long time, and that no one corrected them until that moment...

Ouch.

"What's an 'oh sh*t' moment where you realised you've been doing something the wrong way for years?"
