Being a consumer can be a stressful situation. It's always fun to shop and splurge on yourself with treats now and again. But the treats half the time can turn out to be lemon. And not the fresh citrus kind. You never know if a certain product is overhyped or if that used item maybe just a little more used than you hoping for. One of the most frustrating parts of shopping is having to cause a scene in the return line. Those people are always a trip.

Redditor u/nachtstiel wanted consumers to share... What is something that you are NEVER F**KING BUYING AGAIN?


Keep your mitts to yourself... 

Oven mitt from the Dollar store. I don't know how, but I think it actually intensified the heat. rayrayrayray

A lot has to do with the seams on those imo. My mother has the ones the open like a sock puppet, so a flat piece of fabric the spans the entire gripping surface of your hand.

The dollar store ones are usually two pieces of fabric cut into a mitten shape and sewn together. And the seam is right along your hand. And the heat travels right in. And it's awful. ASpoonfullOfSass

Education ain't cheap. 

A parking pass for college. When I did my generals at the local CC it was only 40 bucks a year. At the university I'm transferring to they want 200 dollars a year.

My student ID lets me ride the bus for free and I can find free parking about ten minutes away from campus. ZeD00m

My parking for both semesters is $700, my friends at a UC would have to pay almost a grand. It's real BS! Ironfist506

This is Serious... 

Sirius XM radio subscription. It's a great service, but they will spam the everloving F**K out of your inbox, even if you've opted out of everything and unsubscribed from every available option. I'm talking multiple emails a day. "DON'T MISS OUT!"

Also, good luck canceling service, which I did just because of the email issue. Their retention people are absolutely relentless. LecherousHomewrecker

Just use a towel...

A cat bed. I can use a box from an Amazon package and get much better results. achung101

I have a constantly-changing cat bed. Every time I get a new order, the old cat bed gets recycled and the brand new luxury cat bed is unveiled, often with packing materials still inside. It's fun because it can go from tiny almost-can't-fit-inside, to like mini fridge size. We have a lot of fun at my house, me and my cat. miniconmax

Buy Used...

I will never buy the first year run of a new model of car. I will make sure the model has had a few years to work the kinks out.

In case anyone was wondering, I bought my wife a Chevy Sonic when they first came out. So many little things have broken in that car. Mostly small inconvenient stuff, but some not so small. The worst was a crack in the air intake hose that was very hard to find. Its also obviously leaking coolant, yet nobody can find the leak. So many small electronic things having to be replaced.

I've always found my Chevy vehicles to be very reliable, but not this one. Never again. PsychoWyrm

Seriously?

X-ray glasses. Purchased them from the back of a comic book years ago. rva_musashi

I actually had a pair at one point. There's actually a gimmick in them (no, they aren't really x-rays) so it's not like a total loss. There's a piece of dyed red feather in each eye hole. You can see through them, but it diffracts the light coming to each eye. The effect is that it looks like your hands have see-through flesh and solid bones (because the two images don't quite line up). sigilvii

Don't be that cheap! 

Bargain Q-Tips. fwoggyboboggy

That feeling when you pull the Q-Tip out and it no longer has the cotton on it. kai-klee

Don't get sunk...

A cabin cruiser.

I was told before I bought my boat that the happiest days I would have with it would be the day I bought it and the day I sold it. I did not think this could possibly be true.

I was wrong. elizabethfarias

My fiancée wants a boat. I want a friend with a boat. She is not demanding a boat, she just said it would be nice to have one someday. I reminded her that we have friends with a boat who rarely use it and sink lots of money into it. RIPKellys

Not today Satan! 

A furby. When they were popular I made the mistake of asking for one from everyone (my mom, godmother, dad, friend-that was everyone)... and I was shocked when everyone bought me one. In the middle of the night they would be awake plotting and talking to each other in their furby language. Nightmares. Never again. AsianGinger33

You get what you pay for...

Furniture from a discount furniture store. The wood is so soft that I got several splinters from accidentally scraping my thumbnail on it. And my bed frame was not meant to be taken back apart at all. I'm surprised it survived the move, but it's definitely not making it through another.

I tend to avoid public bathrooms if I can help it. They are terrible places. Few are clean and I admit I am a bit of a clean freak. My beautiful bottom will not grace a dirty toilet seat, no thank you. I have standards.

I'm being only sort of serious. I've been in a pinch before. But have you ever seen a gas station bathroom that was utterly destroyed by the patron (or patrons) before you? It's a horrible sight. 0/10: Do not recommend.

Naturally, some crazy things happen in your local public restroom. We heard some stories after Redditor RuffNBoy asked the online community,

"What is the wackiest thing you've seen in a public restroom?"

People Break Down Which Behaviors Scream "I'm Not That Smart'

One should never be fooled by a first impression.

Certain people might behave in a way that is less than indicative of what they are actually like, and might prove to be far more impressive, or much less friendly, once you get to know them a little better.

However, sometimes people will behave in a certain way which leaves one unable to avoid making assumptions about people.

Namely, their intelligence.

Redditor sparklingshanaya was curious to hear what behavioral traits the Reddit community took as a sign of possessing a considerable lack of intelligence, leading them to ask:

"What are some behaviors that scream unintelligence?"

One of my favorite horror films ever is Black Christmas (1974). It's the perfect slasher film. It's scary. It's uncompromising. It's sordid. It's eerie. It leaves you with a horrible feeling in the pit of your stomach. It features some great acting, too! There are some powerhouse talents in it, including Olivia Hussey, Keir Dullea, Margot Kidder, and Andrea Martin.

But did you know that the film has been remade? It's been remade twice, as a matter of fact. The first remake, which was released in 2006, was so ridiculous. Not even Martin, who showed up in a glorified cameo in the role of a sorority house mother, could save it.

It was remade again in 2019 — this one bore few similarities to the films that came before it. One wondered why this one even had the same name, but there you have it.

Suffice it to say that the original Black Christmas is untouchable. But it is not the only film out there that should never have been remade. Far from it.

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

"What movie is so perfect that if it would remade, it would be a crime against humanity?"

Sex talk is still considered a taboo subject in many households. And I don't mean going into detail about your bedroom conquests at the dinner table.
