Everyone has experiences that they wish they could forget, and definitely would never want to go through again.


Once, when I was in middle school, my pants ripped in two after falling down the stairs. It was both painful and embarrassing, and now I am always extra careful when I go up the stairs.

Redditor u/jnhdavid got people to talk about their lowest moments by asking… What's an experience you don't ever want to go through again?

10. Kidney stones are no joke. 

"Kidney stones. Took me 6 days from when the discomfort into pain started but felt like 6 years. The pain was causing me to nauseated which doesn't mix well with pain killers. Ultimately had to get admitted and passed them the night before I was to have surgery."

9. Post-appendectomy bathroom breaks are horrific.

"I hated having to figure out how to poop and pee again for the two weeks after surgery because I felt like was going to tear out my internal and external stitches."

"All of this. I didn't sh!t for a week out of fear."

8. Public bathrooms are bad enough.

"This summer my group ate something very bad before taking a night train that was leading us to take the airplane home. 10 out of 16 we were had bad diarrhea/vomit. Fun was not had. We felt like dying."

7. Pooping in public sucks.

"In my first grade I shat in my pants and I didn't even have an underwear. To spice that up there was a fire drill in which I had to stand without shorts among the whole school. Most Embarrassing moment of my life"

6. Nothing like the movies.

"Being stuck in a mental hospital. It's not like in the movies but it's the feeling of being so close to freedom yet so far away."

5. I can't help but agree.

"The entirety of middle school. No thanks."

4. Colon health is important.

"Colonoscopy. The surgery itself isn't that bad, it's the prep that sucks"

3. Heartbreak is never easy.

"I was in a relationship for almost 3 years. I know it wasn't perfect and we had some issues but overall she made me really happy and I thought what we had was so special. Then just one days she says she wants to break up without giving me much more reason than "it's best for her". It really does make you feel abandoned, and since she was pretty nice about it I feel like the only person I can blame is myself. 3 months into the process and it's not been a fun time."

2. Anywhere but Boston!

"Driving in Boston.

I swear, they designed their roads with purposeful malice."

1. The miracle of life.

"Watching my wife have a C-section.

Twice is enough."

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

After Redditor pnrddt asked the online community, "What small action immediately makes you dislike a stranger?" people shared their observations.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
