Remember Game of Thrones, Season 8?

Yeah, we'd rather not.

But that's just one example out of many others after Redditor SWSU asked the online community: "What did you want so badly to be good, but just wasn't?"

We apologize in advance for reminding you of some of your greatest disappointments.


"The movie version..."

Giphy

The movie version of "The Giver." I think Jeff Bridges did a great job, and it's a visually appealing movie, but they didn't need to add in the romance. They should have stayed true to the book.

"It tasted like..."

A beer that a local brewery made that was a white chocolate stout. It tasted like a bag of nickels.

"I always pick..."

I always pick the wrong thing in restaurants and the badness seems to be directly proportional to my level of hunger.

"The ending..."

The ending of The Walking Dead. After 4 or 5 seasons, I was really ready for a satisfying conclusion to our heroes' story. Instead, they slowly killed them all off, replaced them with new people IDGAF about, and the damned thing is still on the air a half decade later.

"Getting my first ever..."

Getting my first ever period. I thought somehow that it would be magical, and that I'd be treated as an adult afterwards. Found out pretty quick that it freaking sucks.

"I thought it would help me..."

University. Or at least, myself in University. It's fine for most people, perhaps even the "best time of their lives."

I thought it would help me turn a new leaf into a better, ideal version of myself. Unfortunately, I can't stand the other students and I've somehow lost the passion for school I had 6 months ago.

I want to drop out so badly but that would just kneecap myself further.

"I guess..."

Any time I go out to a fancy place to eat. I guess it's just not my thing. More of a taco truck and dive bar kind of person.

"I always grew up..."

Sonic (the drive up dinner). I always grew up seeing their commercials. The closest one was almost a hour and a half away, so I didn't get to ever really try out any of their stuff. Moved down to Oregon and had one 5 minutes down the road. Finally got to try it out and was left upset I had wanted to try them for so long.

"Being an independent adult."

Being an independent adult. You think being away from your parents and making your own decisions will be so great. Then the bills start piling up, the to-do list never gets fully cleared, and you long for the days of being a kid again with fewer worries in the world.

"Vinyl."

Vinyl. Spent hundreds of dollars on a turntable, speakers, preamp, amplifier and records of my favorite albums expecting it to be a huge step up from my bluetooth headphones, and I can't hear the difference other than the constant pops and crackles that are apparently unavoidable in most modern pressings.

If you don't have any experience with construction, it can be pretty interesting to watch those reality HGTV shows (I know I'm addicted at this point). Some of the best episodes can be the one's where they open up the walls to find the builder didn't do anything right, causing a huge blow to the budget. The drama!

As someone who doesn't know much about building, and is dreaming of homeownership, Redditor Vast_Recognition_682 asked a question I wish I had thought of first.

Unless you've been a member of the armed forces, you may only know drill sergeants as uncompassionate leaders who yell at privates all the time.

Sometimes, it becomes extremely clear that it's time to leave.

Years ago I had a classmate who was a total daredevil... so much so that he would often injure himself. He once drove a bike in the direction of oncoming traffic, just for the hell of it. He got out of that episode unscathed––luckily. By contrast, I prefer keeping all my limbs, and still have them all. I wonder where he is now. Hopefully not too banged up. I did do some stuff unwittingly––like the time I stuck a fork into an electrical socket. I thankfully wasn't shocked too much. I was young and naive.

People told us all about the dangerous things they did when they were younger after Redditor Not-an-Ocelot asked the online community,

"What's the most dangerous thing you did as a kid without realizing?"
