There's a dark side to knowing how the sausage is made. On one hand, you'll be more knowledgeable about the world at large and that's always a plus. The downside is you...know how the sausage is made. Dark secrets can lead to an awful legacy, especially if it's a place you're currently employed. You know how your co-workers behave once they hang up the customer service call, so why would you ever go back? Let's find out.


Reddit user, u/bengalese, wanted to know why you'd never shop where you work when they asked:

Why are you not a customer of where you work?

Who Could Reasonably Afford That?

Because I can't afford a $500,000 boat

K0jima

Can you borrow a 500k boat?

SexlessNights

Idk if they would let me, but we do get to go on rides if your name gets drawn in the lottery

It's Not Your Time Yet

I'm only 25. Thankfully don't need hospice care and am hoping I won't need it for a while.

Who'd Want Them Knowing All that?

It'd be unethical for my coworker to see me for therapy.

supermariobruhh

Same. Plus, I'm not eligible for services where I work.

And...Gross

I work in fast food, and one of my coworkers regularly scratches her back with any food-prepping utensils she can find.

I've talked to her about it, the managers have talked to her about it, but I think she does it without realizing. I make sure to swap out every utensil she uses for a clean one but I'm not watching her all the time

How Does Nothing Get Done?

Because I can't afford the kind of vehicles we do repair work on.

Also knowing how often the electrics go faulty doesn't fill me with confidence were I able to!

hylian-bard

I don't have the money to hire me

A high-class sex worker?

A world-famous singer?

An estate agent?

A low-cost contortionist who struggles to pay the bills because you're not that good at what you do, and don't have enough time for a second job? Plus you immigrated to a new country and have to send some cash back to your poor and sick parents? You had to lie to them about how much you earned because they told you not to do this and take over the family lamp lighting business but you had dreams. You landed on Ellis Island with high hopes but soon realised that not was all that it seemed. Now you're too ashamed to tell mama and papa that you're not as rich as you promised you'd be.

....the fourth one.

Hopefully, Never Needed

Because, thankfully, I don't have cancer.

HairyGuyGacks

Same. Are you in pharma or the clinic side?

GuiltyLawyer

Clinical research.

HairyGuyGacks

True Honesty

Because it is quite hard to f-ck myself.

MrDaftJack

Comcast support?

BobRossTnetennba

Beautiful

Sometimes, It's Easier Than You Think

Because my coworkers are there.

zanihippolysis

Probably the most truthful answer in this thread, no matter how you look at it.

Are they incompetent? Do you just not want them to know? Yes.

lifelongfreshman

Pretty much why I wouldn't eat at that restaurant. I have seen the kind of sh-t they do, and I never want them anywhere near my food. Plus considering the quality of food and service their prices are way too high.

Got the secret of why we shouldn't patron your place of employment? Let us know!

Any engaged couple looks forward to the big day when after months of planning, they get to tie the knot and declare their love in front of family and friends.

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
