If you watched Star Trek: The Next Generation as a kid (don’t act like you didn’t), then you know all about Captain Jean-Luc Picard. He was the English Captain with a completely French name who was constantly going where no man had gone before.

Of course, as you can imagine, being in charge of the USS Enterprise was no cakewalk. There were times when poor Captain Picard was simply pushed too far. From this lone image of the man having a bit of a fit (and justifiably so) comes the famous Annoyed Piccard Meme. Here are the best examples.

Dealing with Dumb People 

All of us have to deal with people every single day, whether it’s friends, family, coworkers or perfect strangers. Sometimes, though, we are forced to put up with especially dumb ones. You can only do this so many times before you become Annoyed Piccard.

If you’ve ever worked retail, this is your meme (over and over and over):

and_you_sir

This is for all you parents (not that your kids are dumb) and those who have tried to train someone on new software:

why_the_fuck

Exactly. Learn what each is for or don’t complain:

escalator_vs_stairs

Summed up perfectly:

squinting

There are times when all you can say is:

this_bitch_here

Life in the Office 

Granted, the Enterprise wasn’t an office, but it was a workplace. Like any workplace, it involved more than a handful of employees who made life unnecessarily difficult for others. Can you relate? Then these memes are for you.

When you manage people who aren’t using the tools in front of them:

all_these_resources

Even on the USS Enterprise, I bet this happens. This happens in absolutely every workplace:

no_open_toed_shoes

Ever try to start a meeting but that one person always holds things up?

waiting_on_jim

Speaking of that one employee who is never on time:

aint_nobody_got_time_for_that

Nothing. Nothing pisses off a trainer/manager more than their employees saying, “I don’t know how”:

I_trained_you

Picard Explains Relationships 

Picard himself never had many relationships, but according to these memes, it seems as though he had a pretty good understanding of what they entailed.

This is how they start:

that_is_a_great_ass

Next, you hit them up on social media:

add_me

Then, you become a couple and you soon have that first argument:

its_simple

It’s going to happen again:

who_does_that

And another:

your_you're

But, hey, if things work out, you’ll end up moving in with each other, which is great! Of course, there will still be fights:

dishes_in_sink

So long as those fights don’t become too much, you’ll settle down and get married. Then, there will be a baby. And, then, you can have this fight:

clean_the_babys_diaper

Just try your best to stay out of any argument that ends with this kind of situation:

on_what_planet

And, good lord, avoid this moment at all costs. The moment your significant other does this, you are in serious trouble:

give_me_your_phone

If things don’t work out, though, there’s always Adele:

hello_from_the_other_side

people_don't_make_memes

time_for_memes

Seriously.

After enough years in the workforce, most of us would love to go back to the carefree days of being in school. But don’t forget about all the challenges you faced at that age too. The Angry School Boy meme perfectly encapsulates many of them.

Moms vs. Videogames  

Will Smith once famously opined that “parents just don’t understand.” To what degree this is true is up for debate, but most of us will probably agree that moms just don’t get videogames. They simply don’t understand them at all. Unfortunately, this means that sometimes tempers boil over.

I don’t know how mom can’t get this through her head:

can't_pause

This ends one of two ways, mom:

killstreak

Mom, you’re embarrassing me:

link_and_zelda

It’s not a videogame but still. Mom needs to get her act together before I go Super Saiyan on her:

dragonball_z

While we’re on the subject, mom:

dbz_is_on

Well, yeah:

wins_and_loses

Taking on Mom’s Cooking  

One job almost every mom takes on is keeping her family fed. Sure, dads can cook too, but more times than not, it’s mom who has to handle this all-important task. Still, that doesn’t mean she’s always on the mark. When she’s not, these are the memes for you.

It’s like mom wants you to go hungry or something:

no_crust

This is the oldest excuse in the book, mom:

shitty_food

Total double-standard, mom:

pizza_at_school

The one food item no mom can screw up (hopefully):

grilled_cheese

Don’t Forget About Dad 

We just gave moms a whole heap of flack, but let’s not pretend like dads don’t grind our gears too. Sometimes, they can push the limits as well, at which point, the following memes immediately become appropriate.

This was almost always because of dad:

no_milk

Well, that escalated quickly:

fuck_you_dad

Your dad might be kind of a jerk:

dad_sold_my_hamster

No matter what, every dad likes reminding his kid about how much work he does and how little they do and it’s like:

I_don't_work

Making It Through School 

Being that the meme is Angry School Boy, it only makes sense that we would also include scenarios from this often difficult time in everyone’s life.

This was the worst. I don’t think they even make these pencils anymore and it’s because of this:

that_face_you_make

Nothing made me hate a teacher quicker than when they did this:

when_you_get_called_on

Though, when I did know the answer…:

first_to_raise_hand

Speaking of hatred:

cheat_on_a_test

I barely know how to get the answer and now I have to show my work? C’mon:

math_problem

Don’t ask questions, mom. The point is that it simply cannot get done:

the_locusts_are_coming

Is gym class even that big of a deal anymore? Can I just sit on the bleachers?

runs_in_underwear

Ugh. Fine. Great. Another test:

I_can_do_this

It was a dark, dark day when this became apparent:

no_recess

Even if you’re out of school now, most of the above memories are probably still fresh in your brain. If you’d like to bring some of them to life, feel free to use our Meme Generator and share them with the rest of the world. 

 

Hanging out with your friends naturally leads to telling a story or two. Whatever the story is about, if it involves others, there’s a good chance that, at some point, you’re going to say, “And then I told them.” Sound familiar? If so, here are the memes for you.

Telling Them at Work 

Work is full of opportunities to tell a great story to your friends. Whether you’re the one in charge or you’re trying to put up with those above you, at least one of the memes below should help you cope with the stress of going to work.

If you’ve ever had the opportunity to write this kind of email, you did it with a huge smile on your face:

her_mistake

Being a manager means you have to deal with this like once a week:

he_wants_a_break

Every manager has also made this mistake too:

When your people aren’t asking for breaks, they’re usually asking for raises:

she_needed_a_raise

Client calls are just a part of working in an office which ultimately leads to this type of exchange:

during_and_after

Documentation is important, but that doesn’t mean documentation is always easy:

accurate_documentation

Sometimes, you mean really well. Sometimes, that doesn’t mean you’re going to do what you said:

service_fixed_today

Eventually, this is the only way you can have fun at the office:

you_on_the_subject_line

When you manage people, they will inevitably ask if they’re working a certain day, when they already know full well they are. That’s when you have this meme:

mary_jayne

This might hit home a bit too much for some people:

negotiate_pension

Telling Them at School 

It should come as no surprise that this meme also works really well in school. As either a student or a teacher, there are all kinds of occasions where you might have the opportunity for this moment.

Nothing is as rewarding as not paying any attention to the teacher when they’re thinking just the opposite:

so_get_this

In their defense, they probably mean it. They probably think it’s going to be a blast. Still:

this_class_will_be_fun

Then there are those teachers who definitely take pleasure in this:

test_sheet_and_review_sheet

That same math teacher who said it would be fun will also do this:

show_their_work

Never believe a teacher when they say:

slack_in_schedule

To be fair, there are probably a lot more drinks involved:

teacher's_lounge

…is that a no, then?

slack_in_schedule

Another sadistic teacher moment:

slack_in_schedule

Hanging with Your Friends 

This entire meme is designed around talking with your buddies, so it only makes sense that there would be some great ones that include things you might say to your friends.

I know you would never do this, but:

texts_with_hotgirl69

Or this:

squad_hot_gossip

We have all been here:

don't_get_the_joke

Maybe you’ve even been here:

pay_them_back

Did any of these ring a bell? Have you been knee deep in a story and finally delivered the line, “And then I told them? If so and you didn’t see a particular scenario covered above, feel free to use our Meme Generator and let the rest of us know what you told them.

reading_this_meme_reaction

 

Pop quiz! Where did the line, “I’m going to build my own theme park, with blackjack and hookers” come from?

If you said that it’s on my family crest, you’d be right. However, I would have also accepted the lesser-known source: Bender from the popular show, “Futurama.”

While that line is pretty good all on its own, leave it to the Internet to take something great and make it even better.

Don’t Take Criticism Well? 

Hey, I’m with you, man. Who likes being criticized? Especially when there are so many other deserving targets. Like Dave. That guy is the worst. People should criticize that guy a lot more.

Anyway, if you’re sick of taking people’s bullsh*t, Bender has your back.

pissing_me_off

That’s all I should have to say. Now you should stop.

shiny_metal_ass

Don’t actually bite it, though.

still_like_you

Admittedly, it can be confusing at times.

Haters Gonna Hate 

Another reason criticism is the worst is because sometimes you did the exact opposite of earning it. You’re just sitting there being awesome and someone has the gall to get in your face about it.

Unreal.

Get ‘em, Bender memes!

call_of_duty

Yeah! But also, I don’t think that’s a very realistic thing to worry about.

all_still_fight

…hopefully, this is also meant in a Call of Duty sense.

don't_hate_appreciate

This is just solid advice.

Sometimes, There’s No Place for Wit 

Look, a lot of the memes on this site are very, very witty and people should be commended for coming up with them. However, there’s something to be said for the straightforward approach too and, if you’re a fan of the show, you know that Bender is the perfect image to deliver the following words.

shut_up

In my personal experience, this applies to 99% of the people on this planet.

you_are_so_wrong

…aright, this also applies to 99% of the people on this planet.

side_effects_include

http://www.memes.com/meme/blackjack-bender/496135

Why yes, I am a keyboard warrior, but still…

my_fur_coat

I don’t actually have a fur coat…and I don’t get invited to parties.

want_more_beer

This meme is my spirit animal.

let_me_tell_you

When someone literally says anything to me.

are_you_drunk

Me. Always.

The 2016 Presidential Election Explained in One Meme

America is a country full of people who love freedom. We put a premium on the Constitution, family and the ability to live and let live. At the end of the day, though, everyone loves blackjack and hookers.

Got a better idea of what Bender is saying? Have another Futurama meme in mind? Let the world know with our meme generator.

 

We’re all told to respect our elders, but sometimes our elders are kinda jerks. Take Back in My Day Grandpa here. What a sourpuss. What’s your problem, sir? Not a fan of huge advances in healthcare? 4,000 TV channels? Delicious fast food?

Back in the Day Wasn’t That Great 

If there’s one thing you can rely on when it comes to old people, it’s that they love talking about what life was like “back in the day.” It’s rude to ask when that was (Jurassic? Triassic? Cretaceous?), but whenever it was, it seemed absolutely awful.

pokemon

Good lord. That makes serving in World War II seem like a walk in the park.

dick_grandpa

To be fair, people are still sometimes named that and people are still referring to you when they say it (not because it’s your name, though).

musicians_friend

Eh, that’s still kind of the case.

flowers_and_iphones

…well, we have it way better then, right? What’re you complaining about?

no_internet

As much as I hate Internet tough guys, they’re worth it.

we_said

Finally, something I can relate to.

Life’s Little Disappointments 

Whoever this guy is, he’s seen some things. That’s not a face you can pull out of nowhere. That’s a face that is immediately deployable, sitting near the surface because it’s been used time and time again.

Let’s take a look at some reasons why that might be.

repeat_first_grade

That’s the worst.

mom_divorce

“….also, I have to repeat first grade.”

no_ketchup_left

I drop it in the garbage. What’s the point?

expose_on_instagram

This means war…the second one for this guy.

bae_with_someone_else

To Instagram

taking_a_fry

There is never any excuse for this – even if I said I was done with them. You. Must. Ask.

mom_makes_you

Yeah right, like your mom’s even alive anymore, old man. Quit playing.

One Very Judgmental Old Man 

Between looking disappointed and judgmental, it’s hard to imagine when this old man finds time for a nice warm glass of milk.

Not surprisingly, Back in My Day Grandpa is not too impressed with you. He sees what you’re doing and he’s judging, judging, judging.

world_war_II

Ummm, it’s called a headache and I don’t want to get out of bed today, anyway. Jeeze

me_no_happy

Well, me think your hat is dumb! 

grumpy_cat

This explains your attitude. And your worms.

memes_are_clever

He’s talking to no small amount of you who post on here, kids. Just saying.

If you have some ideas about what is behind those eyes, use our meme generator to tell the world. Back in my day, we had to make them by hand!
