I used to enjoy thrifting until I realized that the store I used to go to never had anything that I liked. The store became a dumping ground for crappy T-shirts with dumb slogans on them, which I am not a fan of, ever. Needless to say, I stopped shopping there.

How could I continue, when nothing there spoke to me? Sigh. Still on the hunt for a good shop, by the way. But I'm not the only one with particular tastes.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor RobotDave asked the online community,

"What is an item of clothing that for you is an instant turn off?"

"I hate..."

"I hate the ones that say 'alpha wolf' or 'trust no one' or 'don’t mistake my kindness for weakness.' Like shut up."


I’m sure someone who would wear the latter shirt is nothing but the epitome of kindness and not a tool looking to compliment and flatter their massive, unearned ego.

"Those dumb wine shirts..."

"Those dumb wine shirts for women. Like 'Rosè all day' or 'toes in the sand, rosè in my hand.'"


Why are these so normalized? It's odd, isn't it?

"The wifey/hubby clothing. Sometimes, just sometimes, it can be cute in a tongue-in-cheek manner, but most times it’s very, very cringe."


Facebook (and dumb people) have forever ruined these for me. I've seen so many that are just inappropriate.


"Platform high heels when your feet are slightly too big and your toes hang over the front like they’re hanging on to the edge of a cliff."


I want to piggy back on this and say high heels but when they let the pinky toe hang outside of the strap. Like it wasn’t invited to the party but it’s tagging along anyway.

"Message T-shirts..."

"Message t-shirts that brag about how tough or nasty you are."


I will not be spoken to in that tone by an article of clothing!

"Very specifically..."

"Very specifically my fiancés grey and orange plaid shorts."


Hey, I love your fiance's gray and orange plaid shorts. What are you going to do about that?!

"A white shirt..."

"A white shirt with food stains on it."


Let's face it – if you can confidently wear white, then you're pretty brave.

"Skin tone pants (specifically leggings)."


I was once at the the gym and ended up just staring at a woman on a treadmill who was wearing nude colored leggings and a long T shirt - legitimately spent 5 minutes trying to figure out why she wasn’t wearing pants and why no one was stopping her.


"Anything loudly displaying a designer brand."




Great, huh?

"Dumb shirts..."

"Dumb shirts like 'female body inspector' and dumb sarcasm shirts."


Yeah, those don't work for me either. They just look cheap.

Hey, we all have our own fashion sense. Whatever doesn't work for you might be a gold mine for someone else. Let them wear what they want... and steer away from what you know you'd never wear, which should be easy enough.

People Explain Which Lessons Aren't Taught In History Class But Should Be

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

"What’s something random you miss about pre-COVID times?"

What do you believe?

Is there a GOD in the sky?

Is he guiding us and helping us?

Life is really hard. Why is that is a big entity is up there loving us?

Atheists have taken a lot of heat for what feels like shunning GOD.

What if they've been right all along?

Maybe let's take a listen and see what they really think.

Redditor __Jacob______ wanted to hear from the people who don't really believe all that "God" stuff. They asked:

"Atheists, what do you believe in?"

The list of what irritates me is endless.

I mean... breathing too loud or dust can set me off.

I'm a bit unstable, yes.

But I'm not alone.

So let's discuss.

Redditor Aburntbagel6 wanted to hear about all the times many of us just couldn't control our disdain. They asked:

"What never fails to piss you off?"
