This Woman's Saga of Rescuing Her AirPod From the Subway Tracks Is an Epic Tale for the Ages

AirPods—Apple's signature wireless headphones—are super convenient.

There are no wires to get tangled, the sound is crystal clear and they feature the sleek, efficient design Apple is famous for.

They're also super expensive and super easy to lose.


New Yorker Ashley Mayer learned that the hard way when one of her AirPods fell onto the treacherous Manhattan subway tracks.

What followed was a saga for the ages.


Ashley thought all hope was lost, but the AirPod was in the same spot the next day.

Jumping onto the tracks wasn't an option.

So Mayer got resourceful.

The mission was on, with only a few hiccups.


Though the feat occurred off-camera, Mayer put a wad of duct tape at the end of the broom to retrieve the treasured AirPod.

It worked!

And though some were divided on whether she should put the subway AirPod back in her ear, she couldn't let her efforts be in vain.

Soon, Twitter showered her with congratulations.






Happy listening, Ashley. You deserve it.

And not by an otherworldly encounter, but by things that could quite literally happen to anyone.

Redditor GodhimselfUwU was curious to hear the scariest experiences people have lived through, leading them to ask:

"What’s the scariest non-supernatural thing that ever happened to you?"

Having to work for a living is hard work.

Some jobs come with difficulty and two extra sides of stress.

So the last thing people need is unwarranted hate.

I'm so glad I work from home. Writing alone.

I have issues with me, but that I can deal with.

I do hate internet issues.

But that is warranted.

Redditor PM_ME_URFOOD wanted to talk about the jobs where a ridiculous amount of vitriol is all part of a days work. They asked:

"What profession gets an unjustified amount of hate?"

People Explain Which Items In Life Should Always Be Free

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!

Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.
