We should all be nice to each other—is the BS we get fed all our lives.

But let's get real.

Some people are jerks and being nice to them is both a waste of time and stress inducing, but mom said to be polite.

So what to do?

How about a profanity free bon mot to let them know how you really feel?

Never miss another big, odd, funny or heartbreaking moment again.

Many people lie or exaggerate about seemingly little things. For example, I've wondered if many are lying or at the very least stretching the truth about the number of partners they've had.

One of those strange things where half of the people are lying and making the number higher, and the other half are lying and making it lower.

It's funny, isn't it? But you do you! What do we know?

"What's something you're 100% sure most people are lying about?"

I once met a guy who, by all accounts, appeared to have given up. And by that, I mean that they had pretty much decided that life basically ended in the 1970s and early 1980s. He had no interest in modern technology, was remarkably out of the loop when it came to technology or even current events.

It almost feels like everyone must have caught COVID-19 at least once by now.

But even three years in and with multiple variants, there are still a very lucky, select few who have yet to test positive for COVID-19.

Redditor jwa8808 was curious to hear how those who have yet to see two red sticks on their rapid tests have managed to avoid catching COVID-19, leading them to ask:

"For people who have never caught covid even once, what's your secret?"
