Caffeine, sugar, or the satisfying feeling of a Q tip hitting the Q spot are all things we find ourselves depending on. Sometimes you have to look in the mirror and tell yourself "you're addicted to diet coke."

Funny Times People and Things Got Singled Out Unfairly

Sometimes certain people and things get the ire of everyone around them, or just the universe in general. It could be a Burger King sign that tells everyone a certain employee sucks. It could be a burst pipe that only covers one person's car. It might not even have an inkling of merit, sometimes people and things just get humorously singled out unfairly.

Tumblr Post: A Different Take On How Relationships Evolve Over Time

Times Expectations Didn't Line Up With Reality

We're all prone to moments of failure that came out of nothing but the purest of intentions. It'd sure be nice if our lofty expectations always lined up with reality, but alas, we're not so lucky. The universe just loves to humble us right when our egos are getting nice and inflated.

Basic Skills People Are Completely Terrible At

You've got to love an AskReddit thread that pays homage to those basic skills that people are for whatever reason, plain old terrible at. It's funny how life works out like that. Sometimes, we just end up falling through the cracks when it comes to picking up tidbits of common knowledge that we should really have known in the first place. Some people's brains just operate at a different frequency, where they might have no idea how to write in a legible manner, no matter how hard they tried and were pushed to do so throughout their schooling. It ain't nothing to be ashamed of. Or, perhaps you're someone who has an impossibly hard time maintaining the flow of a conversation on the phone.

I mean, now more than ever we're so dang conditioned to communicate through texts, Snapchats, memes, etc. that when it actually comes time to formulate some words, and comprehensible sentences in a dialogue, your mind can end up going helplessly blank. Or, maybe you're one of those people who can't whistle to save your life. Whistling's hard, and shout out to the people in this world that can manage to whistle a tune. While others, can't even get the thing going in the first place.

An AskReddit thread like this can serve as a powerful, humbling, if not inviting reminder that you're not alone in your pursuit toward picking up those life skills and knowledge that you know you should probably know, but just can't quite seem to get. Maybe you have friends and family that have lovingly tried to help you put the pieces together along the way. Hopefully, not the opposite, where you're faced with fielding banter and roasts from people that love to make a mockery of you not quite being able to get there.

The overriding point is that patience is key, and above all else, who really cares at the end of the day if you can't whistle or write out a letter/card that other people will be able to read? The truth is, nobody really cares. Maybe for a hot second they'll get hung up on it, have a good laugh, and give you a nice old fashioned hard time. But then, then you move onward, and maybe you find in yourself a newfound desire to take the time to actually master the very thing that up until this point has escaped your attention. That can certainly be a proactive, productive way to lead a life. The very things that can initially give us the most trouble, can somehow evolve to be our special skills later on down the road. It's like, life loves to test you, throw you off your rhythm for a sec, and ultimately see whether or not you're going to accept the challenge. Challenges can be fun. There's always a nice little dopamine rush waiting at the end of mastering that thing that gave you so much trouble at the onset. So, maybe this thread will give you new inspiration, or at the very least, it'll make you feel better about those skills you're currently lacking.

Most Common Mistakes People Make In Relationships

Dating can be an equally rewarding and wildly disorienting experience. With the wealth of dating apps available at your disposal, and all the silly nonsense that such apps can drum up, it can be just a bit intimidating when you're trying to figure out where to even start. And then, when you eventually muster up the courage to forge your handy dating profile, and begin swiping away on fellow human beings that suit your fancy, you realize just how hard it is to strike up a meaningful connection in a sea of people that might just be using the app for fun, and nothing more. Suffice to say, it can be a discouraging and draining process. You're absolutely not alone if you're prone to installing and then deleting the app, and then installing it again. A strange cycle for sure, but one that many folks can get caught up in. I mean, who really wants to deal with a relentless wave of shamelessly cheesy pickup lines all the time? Everyone has their breaking point.

Maybe you actually ended up deleting those dating apps and meeting someone out in this crazy world that you genuinely enjoy being around. Such a life development can occur when you least expect it, but when it does, it falls on all of us to handle the situation with as much mindfulness as we can put together. It'd be nice if navigating the whole realm of dating came with some kind of instruction manual, but we're not so lucky. Thus, many of us can fall into relationships that never realize their full potential. Like there's always some mysterious piece missing to complete the puzzle and tie the whole dynamic together.

The last thing you want to find yourself dealing with is an emotionally tumultuous, toxic relationship that only ends up bringing out the worst in you and your partner. Love is a crazy thing in that regard. Loving someone can manage to effortlessly amplify all of your emotions in such a way that you end up being dragged along by them, and make a mess along the way. It's okay though. We've got some awesome human beings on this planet that are dedicated to sharing the hard earned wisdom that they've picked up on their own journeys. In this case, we're talking about an AskReddit thread that has people describing the most common mistakes that folks make during relationships.

If anything a thread like this can serve as a helpful instruction manual on what not to do if you want to live a more peaceful, even happier life. Some examples from the thread are things like the mistake that folks make in terms of not actively listening to one another, taking each other for granted, or avoiding glaring problems that are ruining the relationship. That last one can impact a lot of folks. When you're head over heels for someone, blinded by the rose-colored glasses, it's dangerously easy to shrug off the very issues that need immediate addressing. Anyways, all rambling aside, some folks might find helpful stuff in here to help smooth out the wrinkles in their relationships.

Programmer Humor For The World's Tech Wizards

We're well aware at this point that the folks in this world who work in tech support or just the IT department in general really do hold the keys to the kingdom in some sense. With that being said, tech support deals with all kinds of mind blowing acts of cluelessness from paid professionals that seemingly fell through the cracks on some of the most basic technological knowledge. It could be a scenario where you find yourself being the IT guy who is dealing with a professor that doesn't understand how internet browsers work. That kind of daunting realization requires nothing short of a saintly patience to be able to move forward in the troubleshooting process without losing grip on your sanity altogether.

Or, maybe you're another one of those lucky IT guys who has to calmly walk a company's CEO through how to reboot a computer. Yes, these people really exist. You never know what you might encounter while you muddle through your job in the tech support world. The stories we're able to enjoy from an established subreddit like "Tales From Tech Support" though are eye-opening tales about just how lost some of the world's poor souls are, for when it comes to navigating the use of their computer or other pieces of technological equipment.

Maybe some of the most grim stories from the tech support world will manage to make you feel better about your moments of profound confusion when trying to use your work device. Some people's brains just operate at a frequency where they're completely not tuned into how to use a fancy computer. Perhaps, this is the inevitable collective manifestation of technology continuing to evolve at such a rate that the older generations especially, are pretty much helpless in their pursuit toward getting the most out of their fancy computers, tablets, phones etc. Seems like a reasonable enough assumption to draw. You very well might have fond memories of trying to explain to a parent how they can turn off their iPhone, or change the input on a TV.

But alas, we're straying off the topic of programmers explicitly. Programmers are definitely the backbone of many esteemed companies. They're out there in the pits of the coding world, providing the infrastructure necessary for a company to keep up with these fast moving technological times. With that being considered, it should come as no surprise that programmers are regularly pushed to their breaking point in terms of the kinds of unbelievably clueless questions they field on a daily basis. And these same programmers are furiously working away at all kinds of projects that many of us couldn't hope to understand the first thing about. Maybe we're just gradually sliding into a reality where everyone's going to need to know how to code at some level. The skill itself seems to continue to skyrocket in value, and more and more it's as if people that are able to code have some kind of golden ticket for when it comes to locking down the next promising job opportunity. All in all, these gems from the world's fed up programmers should certainly get the laughs going for anyone who has ever dabbled in the dark art of coding.
