Pettiest Things Adults Did To Kids

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about the pettiest things that adults did to kids. You better not get any dang ideas. And if you do just remember that there will be a spiteful little cretin full of devilish persuasion ready to act on your antics.

Petty Curses People Would Put On Their Archenemies

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about the kinds of terribly petty curses that people would cast on their archenemies. People got wildly inventive with their curses. Just picturing what life would be like if there was always a wet spot on one of your socks, or it always felt like there was an eyelash stuck to your eye is enough to get one's heart racing. If anything it's lists like these that can manage to make us grateful for all the fleeting pleasures and periods of general comfortability that we otherwise take for granted.

Fastest Ways People's Co-Workers Got Fired

It's nothing short of a miracle that these people were able to weasel their way into getting jobs in the first place. You've got the dude with the next level situational awareness, who decided it'd be a good move to light up a smoke next to a bunch of hay. Or you've got the other prime job candidate who was hired, and then proceeded to just never show up. It's as if some people get hired just to see how long it'll take them to get fired. Try hard enough, and it really won't take too much time to get canned at all. 

Check out another entertaining AskReddit thread that's about the ways workers got their bosses fired.

Truck Drivers' Spookiest Experiences

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about truck drivers' creepiest experiences from their time out on the road. Turns out if you spend enough time out on the road, you're bound to encounter some especially spooky phenomenon. 

Truck drivers share some of their creepiest experiences from time out on the road | I had driven maybe 30 miles out into the farm land when hail started bouncing off my truck, being a MS native I knew in July hail meant tornado. I pull off to the side (I'm in the middle of no where no lights to be seen no cars behind or infront of me) and start looking for the storm/ tornado I believe is approaching. I rolled the passenger window down and shined a bright flashlight off into the night. Nothing

People That Love Their Jobs

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about the people that genuinely love their jobs. As it turns out, some folks are actually lucky enough to find themselves with a career opportunity that doesn't feel like work at all. It can be done. And if you ever find yourself in that kind of position, just hold on for dear life. And if you're not, maybe some of these gigs will give you new ideas about a career shift.

Fastest Times People's New Co-Workers Were Fired

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about the fastest times that people's new co-workers were fired from their jobs. If anything, it's just surprising that these people were able to get their jobs in the first place. You never know what kinds of red flags people might be hiding before you hire them on. Yikes. Makes us think of the recent story about a nightmare Karen employee who got fired, and used the same employer as a reference.

Wild Cases Of Wealthy People Being Out Of Touch

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about the most ridiculous cases of wealthy being out of touch that they've ever seen. Some people's wallets are so dang dense with the funds that they just seem to move through life operating by a different set of rules. Or they don't even bother considering the rules that the rest of society plays by.

Craziest Things Deep Sleepers Slept Through

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about the craziest things that people have slept through. Many of us have known (or are that person ourselves) someone who has an uncanny knack for being able to drift off to the dreamland, and remain there, through moments of absolute chaos. Could be sleeping through multiple fire alarms, or maybe something like remaining unstirred when a literal lightning bolt strikes the airplane.

Most Mindless Things People Have Witnessed

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about the most mindless things that people have ever witnessed out in the world. The thread was inspired by the late George Carlin's infamous quote about how when you meet someone seemingly stupid, there's also another person out there that's going to be twice as dumb as they are. Just considering that, it's no wonder that the kinds of occurrences in this thread are taking place in the world.

Total Downsides About Being An Adult

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about the various downsides of being an adult that teenagers don't realize. It's funny, when we're younger we can give ourselves over to this notion that when we grow up everything's going to be a whole lot better; but then you get there, and it's just a new world of unforeseen responsibilities. Suddenly, you find yourself craving the days of your youth when all you had to worry about was getting to bed at a reasonable time for school the next morning. If that.
