A vibrant and colorful place located in Downtown Los Angeles, the Fashion District certainly has a lot to offer those who venture through its streets. A wonderful place for shoppers and stylists, it has been a center for the US apparel industry for a long time. However, nowadays, this stunning district has much more to offer than just couture.
A Beautiful Flower District
This lovely part of LA is home to the Original Los Angeles Flower Market which was founded by a group of growers back in 1912. Today, it is surrounded by a remarkable flower district with over 200 vendors in six blocks. It is the prime spot for those seeking fresh flowers and beautiful floral arrangements.
Santee Alley Shopping
There are over 150 retailers located in Santee Alley, offering everything from children’s clothing to fabulous accessories and quality beauty products. Those two blocks make for an exciting and unforgettable outdoor shopping experience.
A Place for Art
Years ago, a Downtown Art Walk was organized as a monthly collaboration. Today, more than two dozen galleries can be found in the area throughout twelve blocks. Among the most prominent ones are the Hive Gallery, featuring pop surrealism, and the Ren Gallery focusing on street and abstract art. Another interesting gallery is the Berta Art Studio Gallery, presenting pieces created by Clara Berta, whose serene paintings are meant to promote wellness and healing.
Various Dining Options
City Market South, which was founded in 1909, now houses a variety of modern restaurants, coffee shops, and innovative eateries. It is an excellent place to visit, but one must remember to bring a healthy appetite! Another great place to stop by is the Pattern Bar. This lovely lounge offers couture-inspired cocktails that carry the names of many famous designers.
The Fashion District is home to a number of amazing hotels that are housed in historic buildings. The Ace Hotel offers a nostalgic vibe of old Hollywood. Located in a former theater dating back to 1927, it still hosts parties, musicians, and a variety of other events. Another go-to hotel is the Hexton, overlooking Broadway. Its amazing in-house restaurant always offers an array of scrumptious dishes.
50 Times People Spotted Others Acting Like Complete Jerks and Had to Shame Them Online
Despite all the positives of humanity, you have to admit, humans are pretty annoying. They don’t listen, they don’t think of others as much as they should, and some are just plain frustrating. Though it would be great if everyone thought of each other before they acted, sadly that isn’t the norm. Join us as we check out people acting like complete jerks, and others shaming them online for it.
They’re Paid for That
Let’s kick things off with something that really grinds our gears. You’ll notice that jerks always say some version of “they’re paid for that” as an excuse for leaving things in a total mess.
In this case, it’s leaving a shopping cart sitting in the middle of the parking lot instead of returning it. Lots of people think that just because someone is hired to do a job, you should leave a mess for them. In reality, it’s just a sorry excuse for laziness.
Crystal Clear Camera Lens
Here we have an image from the window of a pawn shop. As you can see, a very helpful shopkeeper has placed the price sticker for this camera right across the front of the lens. The thing about cameras is, the lens is a pretty big deal. Like, without a clear lens, the entire thing is compromised.
We have to hope that this shopkeeper just has no experience with cameras. If not, they are a total jerk that apparently wants to sabotage their own sales.
I’ll Set it Here
Here’s another of those people that leaves a mess knowing someone else will clear it up. In this case, it’s leaving two Starbucks cups lying on a display inside a clothing store. You see, one of those people that’s paid to do things will be forced to come along and throw it in the trash.
But, why couldn’t these people throw their own drinks in the trash? Malls are packed full of trash cans, and we’re pretty sure they know how to toss their own trash.
That Seems About Right
Truth be told, it’s difficult for us to look at this picture. Here we have an image from a classroom, where someone’s college professor considers this a clean blackboard. That’s right, you read correctly — this professor considers this to be a clean blackboard. As in, he will continue to teach and write on top of this absolute mess.
We don’t really know how to be comfortable in a world where people are doing things like this. Hopefully, someone sneaks in at night with a wet rag.
Of All the Grocery Sins
We’ll be honest — several of these are about people leaving things in the wrong location. And who can blame us? That’s clearly top-tier jerk behavior. This picture shows a particularly annoying example. Someone has lifted some raw chicken drumsticks and then changed their mind and plonked them down in the candy aisle.
Any reasonable person will know that this chicken will now be un-chilled and dangerous. Is it so difficult to return it to the refrigerator?
Can Everyone See?
This pair has decided to give a presentation to a large room with around 100 people in it, using a laptop. Clearly, they forgot the important step of checking out the location and facilities before showing up. As a result, it’s pretty obvious that no one in the room can see this laptop.
These unprepared speakers should have printed out notes, borrowed a projector, or just put the laptop away altogether. They might not be the worst jerks on the list, but they’re a little jerky.
Have a Restful Sleep
As well as the grocery store, airplanes are another great location to find jerks. You see, people from all corners of the world come together in airports, and when that happens, bad behavior occurs. Maybe it’s culture clashes, maybe it’s just rude, but there’s a higher than usual ratio of jerks on an airplane.
This person was about to settle down for the night on a long-haul flight. As always, the pilot dimmed the plane lights. Then came the headphones.
Explain it to Me
Here’s another image that’s likely to make some people start itching with irritation. This is a dish of French fry ends, because this person’s girlfriend doesn’t eat the end of her fries. We suppose this is the equivalent of not eating breadcrumbs — except that breadcrumbs are gross and fries are delicious.
This jerk behavior does have a small upside — this person’s partner always gets a side of fry-ends. Admittedly, that doesn’t sound as delicious as just eating a full French fry, but we’ll take what we can get.
Guys, Hear Me Out
In life, there are different types of people. For some people, when you get to the end of a bottle of mustard, you buy another one and throw the old one in the trash.
For others, when you get to the end of a bottle of mustard, you buy another one, and keep the old one in the fridge. Because there’s still some in the bottle, right? However, when you never throw any condiments away, you end up with a scene like this.
Ready to Go?
It’s time for another jerk hotspot — the gym! The gym is absolutely packed full of jerks, including those that can’t clean up after themselves. This picture shows a weightlifting area in a gym that’s been left a mess. For some reason, the people lifting weights here couldn’t lift them back to their original location.
This is extra maddening because weightlifting is all about lifting weights (duh). Why would you miss the great opportunity to lift another weight while putting it back in place?
Maddening Marker Tips
Stationery lovers know the joy of a brand new ultra-fine dry erase marker. They know the delight of a new notepad, the scent of limited edition gel pens, and the snap of a good stapler. All in all, stationery lovers know what’s what.
That’s why it’s so incredibly jerkish to destroy these gentle people’s goods. If all it takes to make someone happy is a dry erase pen, then avoid smooshing the pen’s tip until it’s far from ultra-fine.
Standing Room Only
Generally, on public transport, it’s good manners to offer your seat up to another passenger. This is extra true if that passenger is elderly, pregnant, or unwell — it just makes sense, it’s just polite. This picture shows some teenagers that have two seats each and still aren’t offering them up to someone else.
If these teens just moved their legs, both they and the standing passengers could have a comfortable bus ride home. Hopefully, someone set them straight.
Tunes for Everyone
And here, ladies and gentlemen, we have one of the great tormentors of our times. Rather than just play his music annoyingly from his phone, this teen has taken things a step further. This music lover has strapped a giant speaker to his back, apparently thinking that everyone wants to hear his lousy tunes.
Unbelievably, this person isn’t using headphones. Imagine having the confidence to think that everyone in your vicinity would want to hear your music choices. Ridiculous!
It Hurts My Brain
For a moment, while looking at this picture, we were lost for words. Indeed, looking at this image for too long does hurt our brain. It can’t quite compute what’s going on. Or, more importantly, why it’s going on. Why, why, why?!
This began as a delightfully decorated birthday cake, and ended as a hacked-up, depressing almost-jigsaw. Whoever took the first piece of this cake must have started a horrible trend that just kept going. Our assessment? Jerks all around!
Office Niggles and Nuisances
While we’re in the office, let’s take some time to spot other office-dwelling jerks. This person takes issue with people that don’t reset the timer on the microwave. Basically, if you put food in for two minutes, and take it out with three seconds to go, then hit the ‘reset’ button before you leave.
Obviously pushing this button takes mere seconds. But, if you don’t do it after using the microwave, then the next person has to do it before making their food.
The Side Shuffle Approach
We’ve all experienced what’s going on in this picture, and no one is ever happy about it. This lady is taking the side shuffle approach to joining a line. Instead of just joining it at the back, in the way you’re supposed to, this lady is trying to merge with the line.
This technique is especially useful at airports where there’s a large group of people. Side shufflers can sidestep into the group, and eventually straighten out in the official line.
Summer Sale Super Jerks
Any retail workers know exactly what’s happened here. You see, when stores have sales, human beings lose all sense of what’s normal and acceptable behavior. Instead, they turn into raving shopping machines, creating mess and chaos in their wake.
During sale times, otherwise normal humans will lift clothing, look at it, and simply drop it on the floor. They’ll pull things off hangers and toss them on the rail, and they will never ever pick anything up. It’s jerk central.
A Job Half Done
Aha! Here we have yet another blackboard cleaning culprit. Or rather, a culprit that refuses to properly clean the blackboard. We have to imagine that these professors are just so engaged and enthusiastic about their subject that they can’t wait to keep teaching it.
Regardless, it’s just common sense to make sure that the area you’re teaching from is blank, to begin with. Otherwise, how are students supposed to concentrate? Somebody needs to have a word with this guy.
Avert Your Eyes
You know that internet meme that categorizes people based on their level of chaos? There’s chaotic good, neutral, and evil. And then there’s lawful good, neutral, and evil. Well, some might argue that this a case of chaotic neutral, while others would say this is utter chaotic evil.
We’d love to know how the owner of this laptop manages to get anything done. Surely living in this degree of digital chaos is a nightmare!
Stop it at Once
Before we even address this infuriating image, let’s remind ourselves how to properly cut avocados. Sorry — but it just needs to be said. You simply cut around the edges to open it up, and then remove the large stone. You can do this with one tap of a knife, or you can scoop it out with a spoon.
In any case, you should never, ever, ever do what’s been done here. It might seem harsh to call this person’s dad a jerk, but trust us.
Hair-y Nice to Meet You
Again, this image basically leaves us speechless. Here we have another unfortunate flier that’s found themselves sharing a plane with a total jerk. This is a very specific type of jerk-ery, one that’s maybe even admirably unique.
This person has extremely long hair, and has placed their mane down the back of their airplane seat. This means the poor traveler behind them is stuck with someone else’s gross hairs! This is simply unacceptable in any context. Keep your hair to yourself!
Feet Off the Table, Please
Likewise, it’s best practice to keep your feet to yourself, especially in a public place. This incredibly rude man is so focused on his work that he hasn’t noticed he’s being awful and gross. This laptop user has slipped off his shoes and put his sweaty, socked feet on top of a coffee table.
Clearly, this selfish slouch isn’t thinking of any of the people that might come after him. No one wants to eat their food off a footrest!
It Was Like That Already
As we’ve seen, when people are in public places, they behave differently than they would in private. Think about it — in movie theaters, people get up and leave trash lying in their chairs. They throw popcorn, they smear nacho cheese sauce. Then, when the lights go on, they walk out.
Similarly, when people try on shoes and then leave them lying on the floor, they also just walk out. It’s not that hard people… just tidy up after yourself!
Excuse Me Please
Here’s another example of people being jerks in public places. In this case, someone is trying to exit a train station or bridge, and these teens are blocking half of the stairway. Worse still, they’re spread out across the bottom steps, leaving no path for weary walkers.
We’re willing to say that these teens aren’t total jerks, just a little clueless. Plus, cities should have areas for people to sit and gather so this sort of thing doesn’t happen.
Somebody Call the Cops
Where do we begin with this? How do we begin to address what’s gone on here? First, someone should get some of those “crime scene” cones and place them around this sad roll of tape. Then, there should be a public campaign to make sure something like this never happens again.
For some reason we’ll never understand, someone borrowed their coworker’s roll of tape and returned it in this state. We think that person should be named and shamed.
I Said, “Move!”
Grocery stores are usually organized in the same basic way. Ideally, customers walk up and down each aisle, gradually getting to every part of the store. However, some grocery store chatterboxes like to stop for a lengthy conversation right in the middle of the produce aisle.
This sort of behavior means that other shoppers have to skirt around the edges, clumsily maneuvering their shopping carts. What’s more annoying is that these people could just move slightly and leave a path for everyone else.
Historically Poor Paving
Be warned — the more you look at this picture, the worse it gets. This is a chunk of sidewalk in someone’s historic neighborhood. When a patch of paving stones needed to be replaced, this is what ended up permanently etched into the ground.
You see, these stones should continue the pattern seen at the top of the picture. Instead, the hexagons are arranged randomly, with awful mismatched patches. If anything, we think the people in this neighborhood would have preferred a pothole.
Why Does This Bother Me?
To be completely honest, we can’t figure out exactly why this image is so annoying. However, we have no issue with saying that whoever does this with their Coke is a jerk. Sure, we can’t quite say why, but we know it’s true deep down.
This person clearly loves Coke, but doesn’t love it enough to finish a bottle. We suspect this Coke lover only likes the freshest stuff, but they could at least throw their old Coke dregs in the trash!
Internally Screaming Over Staples
It’s time folks — time for another office supplies jerk. Though you’ve probably just recovered from the borrowed roll of tape, we now have a borrowed staple disaster. And really, we mean disaster.
The person who took this snap lent their stapler to a coworker. When they got it back, the coworker claimed that the stapler had run out of staples. However, on closer examination, it’s clear they just don’t know how to use a stapler. Cool, cool, cool.
Someone Else Will Do It
Here’s another flavor of the “someone is paid to do that” type of jerk. This shot from a food court shows a messy table covered with grimy napkins, used ketchup, and old soda. We can basically feel the stickiness just by looking at it.
The people that left this mess obviously thought that someone else would come along and clean up after them. And sadly, they will have. The thing is, it’s easier for everyone to just clear up their own mess.
Selfish Shoppers Strike Again
Shopping must really bring out the worst in people. Where else are humans so thoughtless, lazy, and self-centered? Well, probably everywhere. This photo shows a tub of coleslaw lying in the electrical section of a grocery store. Because someone couldn’t be bothered to return it to the fridge, it’s now wasted.
While there’s no accountability in a grocery store, we wish people felt some sense of responsibility. Truly, these are the actions of a jerk.
Sloppy Stairwells and Grimy Guardrails
You would hope that students would care about their own surroundings, but clearly, that’s not always the case. This picture shows the sloppy stairwells and grimy guardrails at someone’s school. We certainly wouldn’t want to stroll through here on the way to class.
We’d be worried about catching some sort of infection. Hopefully, this school has plenty of trash cans available for its students. If so, there’s absolutely no excuse for all of this mess!
They Can’t Be Trusted
We can certainly see why a parent would want their kid to have their own bathroom. Ultimately, it means more space for everyone. Plus, everyone can keep themselves to themselves. It’s awfully civilized, you know?
The thing is, when you leave a child in their own bathroom and don’t check up on them, things like this can happen. Clearly, no one has been around to show this kid how to squeeze his toothpaste like a human, not a small monster.
Could I Get in There?
Public transport is overflowing with jerks. Anyone that’s taken the bus, train, subway, or tram knows this simple fact. It’s basically math — with that many people, there’s a higher probability of rude, weird, or just inexplicable behavior.
Take these people, for example. They’ve decided to take the aisle seat on the bus, essentially preventing anyone else from getting the window seat. Sure, maybe these people don’t want to share, but we bet that other people don’t want to stand!
Straddling the Line
For as long as there have been parking lots, there have been jerks parking across two spots. You would imagine that this was exactly why parking lots were invented — to stop people from taking more space than they need. Clearly, though, people that want to take up space will do so no matter what.
We reckon that anyone caught doing this should just surrender their license on the spot. Is that harsh? Maybe. Is it still reasonable? Why yes.
Practice What You Preach
According to the dictionary, the definition of irony is a “state of affairs that seems deliberately contrary to what one expects and is often amusing as a result.” And here, folks, we have ourselves some irony.
This picture was taken after a climate march, and reads “The Earth Doesn’t Clean Itself.” This person may have been talking about plastic in the oceans, or non-renewable energy sources. But, they seem to have forgotten that Earth doesn’t clean up after them either.
You Used it Last
For any non-jerks among us, there’s a useful trick when you don’t want to refill something. You see, if there are three squares of toilet paper left and you don’t want to replace the roll, you can just use two squares. Now, that’s definitely annoying for the next person, but not for you.
Likewise, the person that used the remaining ice cubes here purposely left one behind. Instead of just filling the tray with some water, they’ve left the next person with just one lousy cube.
Why Do You Hate Me?
Before we get into this next image, let’s just acknowledge what’s gone on. Someone very kindly said that their friend could have a painkiller. Then they passed them a packet with one pill left on the snap-off strip. Beside that was a full snap-off strip with six pills.
The “friend” took one from the unopened side. Look, we know this might not be a big deal for some people. But for the rest of us, this is an act of aggression.
Pass the Superglue
Alright, now we turn to a couple who received a rather disappointing package in the mail. This pair was expecting a set of heirloom pre-World War II crockery. Obviously, this sounds delicate, rare, and maybe even valuable. Hurrah!
But it seems that whoever mailed this package was a total jerk. Either that, or they were someone with a very limited understanding of how the mail works. These antiques came with no bubble wrap or tissue paper, leaving just a box of cracked crockery.
Pick a Side, Lady!
In parking lots all across the world, there’s a war going on. On one side are the pedestrians, just trying to get to their vehicles in one piece without being hit by a car. On the other are the drivers, just trying to leave the parking lot without hitting a pedestrian.
Unfortunately, some drivers want to zoom around recklessly anyway. And some pedestrians want to walk slowly right in the middle of the parking lot drive lane.
Time to Climb In
So far we’ve identified jerks in offices, on public transport, in schools, and in parking lots. The conclusion? Jerks are everywhere! This picture shows two cars parked extremely close together.
This is because one car was parked safely between the lines, and another came along and parked way too close to it, over the lines. This means that the driver in the original car has to basically climb into the driver’s seat. We hope someone at least left an angry note.
Finding Freezer Explosions
Ok, we’ve learned that it’s not cool to leave raw chicken in the dry goods section, or coleslaw in the electrical section. But did you know, it’s also bad to leave non-frozen goods in the frozen section? That’s right, you did, because you’re not a jerk.
You see, when you leave random items inside a freezer, they expand, and then they explode. We can see how this might sound kind of funny, but it’s not funny when an underpaid worker has to mop it up.
I’ll Just Rest My Head
Remember the teenagers taking up two seats on the bus? Well, here’s that situation on steroids. Here there are three people lying horizontally across 12 airport chairs, even though everyone around them is crammed together.
We could understand if these people simply fell asleep when the lounge was empty and there was no demand for chairs. However, one of these people is on their phone, so they definitely know what’s happening in the present moment. This is not good airport etiquette.
Are You Messing With Me?
The person who took this photo asked their sandwich maker to cut their sandwich into three. Truly, if we made that same request and received this sandwich, we would think we were on a prank show.
Is it possible that the person who ordered this sandwich was a jerk? Maybe they were so rude and unpleasant that the sandwich maker simply had to cut their sandwich like this to teach them a lesson. Make it make sense!
I Simply Don’t Understand
For those of you unfamiliar with the weird habits of the English, let us fill you in. In England — and other parts of the UK — people still get their milk delivered by a milkman (or woman). Traditionally, when the milkman comes to take away your empty bottles, he’ll replace them with new ones.
However, this person’s new milkman doesn’t get that far. He simply takes the old bottles, and leaves the new ones randomly scattered on the paving stones. What’s his problem?
