Well it's 2019 and everything in America is fine!

All is well!

People are functioning normally, our social fabric is intact, and when we have a friendly dispute over the price of something, we come back with a loaded weapon to talk things through like reasonable adults!

There is absolutely nothing to worry about!

According to local news affiliate Local 10 A recent dispute in a convenience store took an ... unnerving turn. Robert Lewis Miller, a 60-year-old man from (take a guess) Florida, because of course, popped into the Lauderhill Supermarket in Fort Lauderdale for a couple packs of cigs, like you do.

But when the clerk told him the price was $11 instead of the $10 Miller was expecting, he became irate.

When the clerk confirmed the price with his manager, Miller challenged him to a fight, and the clerk kicked him out of the store.

Then Miller came back with a loaded Wesson M&P-15; long rifle, shouting "You must not know who I am!" several times while pointing the rifle at the clerk. He fled after the clerk ducked behind the counter and called 911.

Video from the surveillance camera is frankly chilling, as Miller waves the gun around and points it several times.

Watch the footage here:

On social media, people were surprised and dismayed by this nonsensical display.

And a bit shaken by how nonchalant everyone seems given how this could have gone down.

And, of course, many couldn't help but make jokes.

Especially at the expense of the one US state where something bizarre always seems to be going down.

After a court appearance, Judge Kim Mollica set Miller's bond at $25,000 and ordered him to surrender all his weapons to police. He must also wear a GPS monitor and never go to the Lauderhill Supermarket again.

Here's hoping whatever's next is enough to deter Miller from another incident.

Times change, and if you don't change with them you're likely to get left behind. That simple piece of wisdom applies to pretty much everything - up to and including the job market. It seems like a lot of older didn't get that memo, though.

Reddit user u/GeekyKirby wanted to get something for their boyfriend for his birthday, but he said not to get him anything because it is so close to Christmas, so they decided it was time to get creative.

When asked what they bought him, u/GeekyKirby replied:

I pre-ordered him a game [Kingdom Hearts III], and bought him a shirt and a book he wanted :) ...I also filled up his living room floor with balloons...

It seems minor mischief is a common theme in their relationship:

Thank you. :) At this point, I can't really surprise my boyfriend anymore. And I try lol. Like the time I secretly put googly eyes on everything in his fridge...

Oh, and they made him this Pikachu cake. You know, nbd.

Users were impressed by u/GeekyKirby's piping skills. Also, the hate for fondant icing is real!

Nicely done and without fondant! r/FondantHate - Patiod

Hehe this gave me a good chuckle this morning. Now wish I had a boyfriend so I could do this to them. - MidnightMadness21

Making something for someone is a great way to show them you love them.

The best birthday present I ever got was from a girl who baked me a cake secretly. So thanks for doing that for him, I know I'd feel great about it. - Levitr0n

Others have found inventive ways to use the meme as well:

The fact that Surprised Pikachu is still around in 2019 really speaks to its universal appeal and ease of use. People will surely keep coming up with inventive ways to use the meme.

If there's one thing Christian Bale is known for, aside from a very gravely Batman voice, it's the physical transformations he undergoes for his roles. The actor is known to yo-yo his weight from role to role, in order to better portray his characters.

Now, however, the actor is considering calling it quits on the dangerous transformations. In an interview with The Sunday Times, the actor described his process with playing Dick Cheney in the new film Vice.
