Wildly Irrational Toddler Temper Tantrums

These moments where kids were agents of full on chaos/staged ridiculous temper tantrums over the silliest of matters might be enough to convince some folks out there that they are in fact not ready to have kids. Parenting's clearly a profound emotional rollercoaster that comes with many speed bumps, and a steady procession of curveballs. You're going to have to grow very accustomed to things like sleep deprivation, and manage to maintain nothing short of a saintly patience along the way. With that being said, adults certainly aren't immune to having temper tantrums of their own. Check out some of those over here

Most Ridiculous Reasons Adults Threw Temper Tantrums

Just because you grow older and occasionally more wizened by the endless series of curveballs that life decides to throw your way doesn't mean that you're not susceptible to giving in to a full on childish temper tantrum. Sometimes, you simply wake up on the wrong side of the bed, and you hit your breaking point out of nowhere. Or, perhaps you end up being on the receiving end of a particularly irrational breakdown. Maybe you're out and about, minding your business at a grocery store, waiting in line patiently, only to end up seeing an adult completely lose themselves over an item that they thought was discounted, but come to realize is actually selling at full price. Or, better (worse?) yet, you're out driving around and realize that you're sharing the road with another driver who seems bent on making everyone else's life miserable by recklessly navigating the road with nothing but rage in their eyes.

You really never know when you're going to cross paths with someone who has ceased to maintain their grasp on peace. The moment that you witness that temper tantrum present itself though, that's when it gets very real, very quickly. It ultimately can fall on you to proactively, mindfully work to diffuse the situation as soon as possible. The thing about catching someone in the middle of a temper tantrum is that they're most often likely to lash back out at anyone and everyone that's just trying to help them settle down. Sometimes the best course of action can be to simply remove yourself from the environment altogether.

With that being said, these folks were certainly tested when they found themselves sharing space with someone who basically lost their mind for a hot second. We're not sure if the general reaction when you see one of these kinds of temper tantrums is panic, compassion, or more anger. In these tumultuous times that we all find ourselves muddling through, it seems like more than ever people are hitting their breaking limits. The world's always been a mess of chaos and life has certainly always loved to be difficult. But when you find yourself living through an era marked by historical adversity, it's particularly tough to keep that head above water and not lose sight of the fact that the hard times will give way at one point or another to just a little bit of that long sought after peace.

At the end of the day, we only hope that these adults were able to learn from their momentary temper tantrums, put the pieces back together, and crack on to do things a bit better and more calmly in the future. That's all you can really do. Just learn from the times that you weren't able to share the best version of yourself with the rest of the world. And I mean, hey, you might even be able to look back at the most ridiculous temper tantrums from a vantage point in the future that has you laughing over just how ridiculous things ended up getting.

Funniest Ways That Kids Have Insulted Adults

There's no getting around the fact that children are just plain old strange. They're these miniature human beings that have an uncanny knack for spewing out wildly unexpected sentiments at a moment's notice. Naturally, some kids are more devious than others. Maybe you were one of those kids yourself. Hard pressed to follow the rules that the rest of society put in place, and told you to abide by. Maybe you were just channeling that oppositional energy from a young age, and it ended up getting you in a whole lot of trouble. If that's the case, you probably had your work cut out for you as you navigated the ins and outs of school. Oh, school. A time ripe for learning about the consequences of not following the rules. Maybe that rule breaking behavior ended up manifesting in you dishing out all kinds of creative and ridiculous insults to those around you.

This particular AskReddit thread honors the most outlandish and humorous insults that kids ended up coming up with. If you're an adult on the receiving end of one of these insults, hopefully you didn't take the insult seriously for a second, and instead appreciated that kid's ability to churn out some banter that you'd never heard before. Banter can certainly be fun if we allow ourselves to drop our guards, and just play along with it. Of course there are lines that shouldn't be crossed, and that can end up being the time that kids are better educated on what they really shouldn't be saying to other members of society.

You don't want to end up growing up to be one of those adults with a nasty head on their shoulders, a misplaced moral compass, and a daunting inability to treat those around you with a sliver of respect. As with all matters of life, there's a strange balance to these things. We love a good roast or creative insult here. Especially when you get the ruthless silver tongued wordsmiths in the comments section that are ready to stir up all kinds of trouble. The YouTube comments section is really its own kind of comedy goldmine. You've got to love the internet for what it provides there. It can be this playground of sorts where everyone goes to work at trying out their most absurd insults. You just don't want to take things too far. Sometimes, you can get lost in the fun of a back and forth with another online user and end up saying something that you ultimately come to regret. But anyways, all ramblings about the wild realm of online banter aside, these kids certainly brought their A game for when it came to surprising folks around them with unexpected words of sheer ruthlessness. If anything, we'd have loved to been able to read more about the fallout from some of the more piercing insults. It really just boils down to whoever ends up receiving that insult. It'd sure be nice if everyone in the world had a great sense of humor, but thus is not always the case.

People's First Encounters with Total BS

Everyone has a memory from their childhood that made them first realize that adults are at worst full of hate and at best, full of shit.

14 People Reveal the Most Ridiculous Adult Temper Tantrums They've Ever Endured

The arresting spectacle that is an adult reverting before your eyes, back to red-faced-angry-baby-shit-packed-diaper-mode is unsettling as it is strangely entertaining --- a train-wreck of a mental meltdown, and you can't seem to look away for the life of you. Kind of like impressively immature reality TV that's populated by pompous, psychotically self-concerned, silicone-altered wannabe celebrities that are always jacked up on Svedka and elementary level gossip. Or, or maybe you've experienced one of these shitshows firsthand. Maybe it was a permanent marker-sniffing, cigarette-munching, vaguely homeless woman who was working on a six pack of high life on the bus yesterday, while you and the unfortunate sea of weary spectators were just trying to get home. Yes, that happened on one of the evening commutes to me. Never thought I'd mention it, till now. Well, sit back, buckle up, and be thankful you weren't around for one of these eruptions.
