Hate is never a good thing.

But everyone once and a while we can't help ourselves.

There are just some things in life that deserve no love.

We don't want to hate because it's unhealthy for us personally to carry it around.

But giving it to something worthy can be freeing.

Like airplane ticket fees. Okay, I'm angry now.

Redditor IssaHunna wanted everyone to discuss all the things being shown justifiable rage. They asked:

"What’s gets a lot of hate, but deserves every bit of it?"

Also... hurricanes. I hate hurricanes. I've survived too many.

"Tabloids. I’m amazed that they’re still allowed to exist considering how much bullcrap they publish."


Rip Off

"Scammers that rip off old and poor people."


"I’ve been going through my grandparent's mail (grandma went through a mail hoarding phase at the end) and the sheer amount and types of old people scammers is mind-blowing - people are f**king shameless!! I can’t just chuck it all out either because there are random blank checks, insurance info, etc interspersed with everything - like grandma was signing checks left and right for anything and everything."


Wasted Seconds

"Non-skippable video ads."


"That freaking five-second warning is the bane of my existence. Way to snap me out of my flow state. They should just get the ad playing immediately, so I can waste 5 seconds of my time instead of 10, 5 on the ad, 5 on feeling pissed that there's an ad about to come."


"Don't forget unmutable, non-skippable video ads. It's what ruined angry birds since I cant safely play it in the crapper at work now."


We Hate U!



"I’m 34 and I have stage 3 brain cancer and stage 3 breast cancer. Chemo literally feels like drinking bleach and suffering the side effects for days afterwards. I’ll probably not be able to have kids anymore either because I found out I could pass it along and I would never wish this on anyone."


"Took my godfather. Liver and testicular. He didn’t smoke or drink. 10 years on I still think about him every day. It’s not fair."


2X a day...

are you there what GIF by Shalita Grant Giphy



"Hey, hey Scam Likely is my best friend and calls me at least twice a day no one can live up to that dedication."


If these Robocalls don't stop. I may go to jail.

"Balance billing, preexisting conditions, and other insurance industry loopholes."





"Off the top of my head: They organize their members to tear down anyone who insults the faith and do horrible things to people who leave the cult."

"Leah Remini had a hell of a time getting out and a worse time after she left. A real religion doesn’t destroy you when you leave. They HATE therapists and mental health professionals. Stated reason is that we’re too manipulative and profit off suffering- personally I think that’s projection, they’re mad that we actually help people suffering instead of just fleecing them."



"The Westboro Baptist Church."


"So, interesting thing about Westboro, being from and living in Kansas, not too far from Wichita, we heard about Westboro ALL THE TIME a decade or so ago. They'd protest funerals, pride parades, birthday parties, basically anything they could find. And then something amazing happened. Westboro started getting bullied HARD by people in Kansas, like viciously and mercilessly bullied."

"They would protest, and there would always be a counter protest, and people would just bully the crap out of them the entire time Westboro was protesting. It got so bad that they had to scale back both the amount of protests they were doing and how many people were going, and no longer brought their kids with them. Eventually they just faded into obscurity."



"Animal abuse."


"And that goes for all animals. Obviously recognizing the abuse that animals like dogs and cats face is important, but people tend to ignore and even laugh off the rampant abuse of fish, amphibians, and reptiles."


"Fish abuse deserves more hate, it feels like every man and his dog crams a billion different types of fish into a chlorinated, un cycled hellhole and it’s considered normal, but some ribs showing on your dog and every middle aged white woman will yell at you for hours."


Shut Up!

"People who talk at the theatre."


"The last two theater-based comedy shows I went to nearly made me homicidal. It's crazy how many people think it's ok to just talk through the whole thing or get drunk as hell beforehand and make a bunch of noise the entire time. Why the hell did you even come?!"


Why are people so rude in the theater? Why are you paying to talk in public instead of at home.

Dating and the search for love and companionship... What a nightmare.

This journey plays out nothing like in the movies.

Every Prince or Princess (or everything in BTW) seems to have a touch of the psycho.

The things people say during what should be simple dinner conversation can leave a dining partner aghast.

Like... do you hear you?

Redditor detroit_michigldan wanted to discuss all the best ways to crash and burn when trying to make a romantic connection. They asked:

"You're on a date and it's going really great. What can another person say to ruin it completely?"

Children tend to believe just about anything they hear.

That there are monsters under your bed, watching too much TV will make your head explode, and silly faces will be permanent if you make them too often.

The sky is truly the limit when it comes to silly things that children will believe.

Some call it naivitée, other's youthful innocence.

But it's hard not to look back with embarrassment on certain things we believed as a child, that today might simply seem dumb.

Redditor Disastrous_Toe_6548 was curious to learn the multitude of silly things people believed when they were children, leading them to ask:

"What's the dumbest thing you believed as a kid?"
