Hilarious People Joke About What Skills Become Suspicious If You're Too Good At Them

[rebelmouse-image 18350825 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

You have to have skills in life in order to sustain. And everybody has skills. Some skills are obvious and others kept on the DL. Of course all skill, even when just inherent, becomes perfected through practice. Sometimes though too much practice can lead to trouble. You want to make talent look natural and learning skill does attribute to one's talent but you don't want to make it seem too easy.

Redditor _Jarhead_71 asked the internet to reveal... What everyday skill becomes suspicious if you're TOO good at it? Maybe dumb it down for the outside eye just a smidge.

THAT BLOWS...

Weighing small quantities and knowing convenient reference weights (e.g. the weights of currency). Identifying off-white powders.

OFFICE STALKER!

Being able to tell who is in the bathroom with you at work.

THIS IS A THING?

I almost always know..

There's 1 bathroom.. and the way to that bathroom is like a 3 way intersection where my office door is.. people walking towards the door would only be coming from the back of the building, and that's only going to be one of two people.. It's easy to tell which way anyone came from just by listening when they walk by, and the sound and speed of their footsteps.. The other way is on the opposite side of the building, and again, I would hear them coming from that direction before they pass by my door.. 90% of the time anyone in the bathroom is gonna be the guy with IBS that poops 20 times a day.

WHAT'S THAT GLORIOUS SCENT?

Recognizing people's smells can get kind of weird when you're good at it. When I was 10/11 in school if someone left a jumper on the playground and it didn't have a name in it I would just smell it and give it back to whoever owned it. Once I grew up a bit more I realized it was weird to smell people's clothes so I stopped; but I can still recognize someone's possessions just by their smell.

WHOSE THE HOUSE?

[rebelmouse-image 18350828 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Dealing and shuffling cards.

IT'S ALWAYS A BIRTHDAY!

HELLO HANNIBAL LECHTER...

Getting stains out of carpet.

I KNOW EVERYTHING!

[rebelmouse-image 18978353 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Every place I've worked I always memorize each and every person. Names, physical features, and vehicle. Usually in case of an emergency because you never know. It takes time but you learn a lot.

PAPA CAN YOU HEAR ME?

[rebelmouse-image 18978354 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Knowing who someone is by the sound of their steps.

SOMETHINGS DON'T NEED A SHORTCUT...

[rebelmouse-image 18978355 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My boss was setting up my time tracking account and it didn't work. He had to try to log in with in. I told him the shortcut to open an incognito window in chrome (ctrl+shift+n).

But thinking about it the shortcut is much more useful to a developer (who has to test logins or unauthorized access occasionally) then to your average masturbator.

UM... IT MIGHT BE TIME FOR A RESTRAINING ORDER...

[rebelmouse-image 18978357 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Memorizing names, phone numbers, favorite colors, credit-card numbers, people's daily routines, usual whereabouts.

REACTIONS?

What they had to eat last night, how many times they went to the restroom, how many times they walked past your tree etc...

See, I know it's seen as creepy so I make an act like "Oh yeah! I remember now..." or if I learn information about a person before they can tell me on their own, I pretend not to know until the person says the information themselves. I really do just remember a lot of stuff about the people in my life, though. Then on top of that, I suppose I connect dots more often than other people too. Like if someone I'm talking to says, "Oh yeah, Tommy and I grew up together!" I remember that, and then even weeks/months later, that same person says, "I grew up in Cleveland, Ohio" then I know that means Tommy probably also grew up in Cleveland. But if I say this to Tommy, I'm gonna come across as creepy.

Love or money?

An age old question.

Ideally, you wouldn't have to decide between the two.

In a perfect world, you would be able to find the true love of your life and be incredibly wealthy all at once.

But, as the saying goes, you can't have everything.

Though if faced with having to choose between the two, people might have a different idea of what the obvious answer would be.

Redditor lulinghayaw was curious how people would decide when faced with this decision, leading them to ask:

"Genuine, true love or 5 million dollars? Why?"

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:

What isn’t taught in history class but should be?

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?"
