🕸️ Crawling the web

Here is what else is happening across the ‘net.

🧀 Chick-fil-A’s mac and cheese is an incredibly popular menu item, with many internet users fawning over the creamy treat. However, one user says that this item may be the latest victim of restaurant shrinkflation.

🗣️ A laid-off worker called his bosses out in front of the entire company during the layoff video call. Someone had to do it.

🍔  An entitled Wendy’s employee tried taking a customer’s change after purchasing a meal from the popular burger chain, and then went on to shame her for requesting 64 cents.

💵 Do saints walk among us? That might be what Dollar Tree customers are wondering after a woman worked at a Dollar Tree for an 8.5 hour shift, even though she literally just walked in off the street to do it.

🥪 Subway, a sandwich chain accused of serving yoga mat chemicals in its bread to customers, now wants to charge an additional 10% “service fee” for customers to have the privilege of a worker assembling their sandwiches.

☕ With inflation at 3.1%, people are finding ways to save money on everyday items. In a viral video, a woman who says she can no longer afford coffee pods due to inflation reveals her apartment complex coffee trick.

👖 Approximately four in 10 women find shopping for clothes stressful. In a viral video, a woman shared her uncomfortable experiences shopping for jeans throughout the years. In the comments, viewers offered tips for other traumatized shoppers.

🏈 From the Daily Dot archive: From sponsorships to merch, college athletes can now use their personal brands to monetize the internet.

👋 Before you go

An American Airlines ramp assistant has taken to TikTok to express his frustration with passenger uncleanliness. In a video that has since garnered over 57,400 views, TikTok user Dre (@caperssss18) talks about the state in which passengers leave the planes after disembarking.

In the video he expresses his disbelief at the lack of hygiene some passengers show when getting off their airplanes. “It doesn’t matter how many times a flight attendant comes up and down the aisle with a trash bag saying, ‘Hey, do you have trash?’ Y’all still put the trash in the seat. Y’all still have containers of food on the ground.”

Why did I find a diaper under a seat today?” Dre asks, clearly exasperated. “Y’all are literally so nasty and I can only imagine what your house looks like.”
