Hot on Weibo: 春运抢票 Plug-in ban for Chunyun ticket bookings

有人将春运比作人类史上规模最大的“春节运动会”,搞笑中带着心酸。近日,工信部通知要求停用抢票插件,理由是有失公平,更在微博引起争议,不少人认为根本原因是12306网站自身问题,也有网友认为抢票软件的确有失公平。

你觉得用抢票插件公平吗?

Hot on Weibo: 保底归集吓哭已婚男 New bank service scares husbands

中国有“男主外,女主内”的传统,所以很多家庭老公的工资都是上缴给老婆统一管理。但是,很多老公都会少报一点工资,偷藏一点私房钱

现在银行竟然有一种叫“保底归集”的功能:只需要设置一个保底金额,如1000元,银行将每天查询老公的账户余额,只要大于1000元,就会把多出的部分自动转账给老婆。

  • 银行君,你的节操呢?
  • 已婚男士潸然泪下

Hot on Weibo: 连上八天班 Working 8 days in a row

中国元旦的法定假期只有1天,但是今年国家公布的放假办法是放3天,把后面的周六和周日拉到前面来一起放。所以元旦后,大家要连续上8天班,网友纷纷在微博吐槽好崩溃。

  • “放假一时爽,连班痛一生 ”
  • “连上八天就叫苦?你们这群战斗力只有5的啊…”
  • “爷爷,能讲讲导致人类灭亡的那场大灾变吗?” “唉,这要从2012年年末说起,先是滔天洪水,然后是突来的严寒,还有四处肆虐的僵尸。” “难怪人类灭绝了啊!” “不,人类从这些灾难中顽强地挺了过来,开始庆祝新生后的第一个新年,可是新年过后,他们发现要连上八天班,然后...唉,我说不下去了..”
