I’ve never slept with a customer. Mostly because of the caliber of people who visited the small town grocery store where I used to work. But apparently sleeping with customers is a pretty common deed, these people took to Whisper to confess what they’ve done…
I’m 30 years old. My name is Mustafa. Until before 1994 and the release of The Lion King, few people got my name wrong. Now, everyone calls me “Mufasa” before finally getting my name right. It’s fine, it doesn’t bother me. Not like my name existed over 1,400 years ago before the release of that children’s film.
Some of the responses to my name aren’t as innocuous. Years ago, while waiting in Port Authority watching a movie on my phone, someone tapped me on my shoulder. I took my headphones out because it was a pleasant looking young woman with a smile on her face. She asked me what I was watching, how I was able to watch movies on a phone (this was when the Netflix beta app was still a relatively new thing) and when it got to the bit where she asked me my name and I told her, her face completely changed. She got belligerent, asked me where my parents were from, and when I told her Albania, she said with a challenge, “Well I’m Serbian.” Which didn’t really bother me, but she was horrified and got up and left.
In case you don’t know the bad blood between the two countries, here’s a photograph from their Eurocup 2016 qualifier match.
I’m not the only person with a “weird” name, though, so I can’t act like no one else in the world has experienced some unusual social situations for a decision their parents made.
Now, with Twitter sharing their own #GrowingUpWithMyName stories, I can feel like less of a freak.
Roll call was a nightmare.

Pretty much my life in a nutshell.
Never pronounced right
Never spelled right
You wont find it on a Coca Cola bottle
You wont find it on a key chain

What is it like to die?
In a world of uncertainties, there are a few constants: gravity, DJ Khaled’s Snapchats, and people going insane over the newest “secret” Starbucks drink. But long gone are the days of freaking out over Starbucks’ Pink Drink on Instagram. Indeed, the
Pepto-Bismol strawberry acai and coconut milk beverage has been overshadowed by a shiny, new, not-so-secret secret drink.
The Internet’s newest obsession is the #PurpleDrink.
This disgustingly delicious Instagram sensation is a mix of passion fruit iced tea with soy milk, vanilla syrup, and blackberries.
Everyone has taken to Instagram to share their obsession with the world.
Twitter has also voiced its support.

Because #PinkDrink is so four weeks ago.
ok the purple drink is lowkey bomb
— kdot (@peachykitana) June 22, 2016
Wow the purple drink from Starbucks tastes exactly like the leftover milk from fruity pebbles cereal ?

And for those of you who have been living under a rock, here’s what you need to know about the secret menu.
Starbucks actually has a menu of “secret drinks” online that has over two hundred recipes, including Snickerdoodle Frappuccino, Peach Cobbler Frappuccino, and Samoa Cookie Frappuccino. For those of you looking to start your day with a delicious kick of diabetes.
…Now go spend your hard earned money on it. We await all the purple drank jokes to come.
We’ve all had some pretty shallow reasons as to why we had sex with someone. For lots of guys, they want to break the “dry spell” after a breakup. Sometimes you just like their hair, or think that they’re impersonation of Crang from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is on point (guilty).
We’re usually not proud of these reasons and oftentimes we’d be horrified if anyone found out. But thanks to the wonder of the internet we can enjoy a little thing called anonymity.
And since not everyone in the world is a super-hacker, and since many of us are not even worthy of being hacked, people are ready and willing to share their deepest, shallowest secrets: like the worst reason why they ever had sex with someone. Thanks to Reddit, we can see these gloriously cringeworthy reasons by people kind enough to share.
Tired of arguing.
Never for pity.
BAD IDEA. BAD IDEA.
That’s one way to get over a breakup.
Tale as old as time.
Oh my God.
The Uncanny X-Men.
Too tired to blow.
Nice guys sometimes win.
Sadly, all too common.
Waiting for a miracle.
Rude if you didn’t.
