Twins: people mix them up, and chaos ensues. Wouldn't it be nice to have a double with whom shenanigans can be had?
TheWolfRevenge asked identical twins of Reddit: What's the most awkward thing that has happened to you because someone thought you were your sibling?
Submissions have been edited for clarity, context, and profanity.
Why not make this a regular thing?
Not so much awkward for me but for the poor girl working drive thru. I own fast food restaurants and one day my brother, who is not in the business, decided to come visit a few stores with me. Once we arrived, I had the bright idea of going inside and having my brother go through the drive thru. The girl at the window immediately gets surprised when he pulls up and she turned really fast and looked at me then him. She was literally stuck in her mind frozen with this weird look on her face for a few seconds. She then turns to him and try's to mumble a sentence and then turns to me trying to say he looks like me but it's coming out all wrong because her mind was too boggled I guess. I immediately told her it was my twin brother because I thought she was having a stroke. She took a deep breath and then started laughing. I don't think I'll ever do that again!
Fantastic, don't stop doing that.
This confused boss.
I had my boss get mad at me one time because I called out of my shift one night when I was really sick. He left work before the dinner rush and got some food at a different restaurant that my twin brother works at. My brother told me that my boss went up to him and said something along the lines of "why did you feel the need to make up you were sick, just to go work at a second job? I'm not sure if I want someone who will lie to me to work for me." Needless to say he didn't believe my brother when he tried explaining that he is my twin. Most of my other coworkers have met my brother and backed me up when my boss was talking about it the next day.
This whole thread almost makes me think it should be a law for twins to have a sticker on that says "I have an identical sibling, stop getting mad at me for it".
It would be pink. No reason, I just like pink.
Brother and I worked together for about 4 yrs in retail. We would often get scheduled wrong and got so many "you are in two places at once" comments. Most awkward thing I can recall that happened was I got yelled at by a customer (I ran register and he ran the floor) for something my brother did. The customer layed into me and I watched my brother appear from around a corner and he came by and asked the customer to lay off me and he'd help her. The customer profusely apologized before following him.
All in all, working with my twin was a lot of fun.
You should have told customers "No worries just go to isle 5 and I'll be with you in a minute" but your twin is already waiting there for them.
My parents have a friend who is an identical twin. Several years ago he and his wife were in the process of adopting two children through a private agency. Things were going well and the adoption date was set, but about two weeks before it was supposed to be finalized the couple got a phone call from the agency stating there was a problem. One of the people working on their case claimed they had seen the husband out with another woman and the agency would not adopt the kids into an unstable home. Turns out, the husband's twin and sister-in-law had been in town visiting and happened to go shopping and been seen kissing his wife. The agency knew the guy had a brother, but not that he was a twin. He and his wife had to go into the agency with my parents' friends to prove they weren't lying.
I can't blame them, but that irritates me for some reason.
Whoever saw them would have had a self righteousness boner for days at the thought of turning them down.
This is a reasonable mistake, and a valid reason to not let these people adopt. It would be frustrating to have to prove you are a twin. I'm sure that was annoying.
Actually it's really strange. I'm adopted and the procedure and research about the adopting couple (at least in my country) is very extensive. It goes as far as interviewing neighbors, colleagues and coworkers. The existence of an identical twin would have come up fairly early in the process.
Good point, it definitely should have come up.
Twins in school together.
In high school one of my twin brother's teachers said hello to me and tried to grab my arm to speak to me about something probably class related. I didn't know who it was as I had never taken her class and walked off quickly and kind of weirded out.
Later she berated my brother in class in front of everyone for being so rude to her. He told her it was probably his twin brother and she didn't believe him. Everyone else in the class told her that he did have a twin brother, to corroborate his claim, but she refused to believe any of them.
I was in a few classes with a kid who was sometimes really nice and sometimes standoffish. We were kinda friends, except when we weren't. It was very strange.
Then one day I saw him walk in the room as he was sitting next to me. Turns out I was only friends with one twin.
A lifetime of confusing people. Jealous.
Most of the people I knew in high school would eventually figure us out seeing as most of us had known each other since elementary school. Now that I'm in college, I have random people walk up to me to talk about the next homework assignment/essay/just any class that my twin is taking to me, not realizing that we're 2 different people. It's amazing to see the differing reactions of people once I break the news to them. It's always either visibly confused, laughter, and then maybe a "oh, f*ck you" followed by even more laughter once they realize they've been talking to the wrong person the whole time.
I have some really good friends that are twins, but when I first met them it was at an event where I met a bunch of people in a short amount of time, and I met them separate from each other. They were wearing uniforms and hats so it was extra difficult to tell them apart. It took me all day to realize they were different people, and nobody thought to mention it when they introduced us. It was like ten years ago and I still laugh about it.
Visited my twin at another college; was sleeping at his place when some random girl crawled into bed with me. She did not believe me when I insisted that I wasn't him so we stayed until he got home from the bar. I'll never forget watching the sinking realization in her face.
What did you guys do while you waited? What did she say once she realized?
She was tipsy so I believe she probably thought he was trying to back out of their "arrangement." We weren't waiting all that long, maybe half an hour? Spent my time insisting that I was his identical twin and that she seemed really nice but that it just wasn't In the cards for her and I. I do not remember if she said anything, she just kinda had that "holy. Sh*t. It's true"-look. Sounds like she may have been duped before by bar hookups.
Keep it going.
My dad is an identical twin. Both have a wife and two kids. They both frequent a restaurant with the family. Every time we go to that restaurant, the staff point and whisper. Dad tells us it's because they think he and his twin are the same guy, with two families (who don't know about each other), and bring both of his families to the same place.
Why not go at the same time sometime? or do they think it's funny?
Oh and like sit back to back and pretend not to notice.
Have just the families sit back to back, without their dads.
Normally unbelieveable, but true!
I was walking to my car one day after classes when I was in college when this girl comes marching up to me angry as all hell and asks why I didn't call her back after "our wonderful night together." Turns out, her and my twin had a one night stand and he ghosted her afterwards.
"Listen, it wasn't me, it was my identical twin who ghosted you. No, really!"
Once in a lifetime.
I have one with a twist.
Me and brother are 2 years apart and resemble each other vaguely. We moved towns and after few years I was visiting my old town. Went to a store and the owner greeted me with some slangs that should be used only with friends. I was shocked and he realised his mistake. Apologized profusely and told me how he was a close buddy of my bro.
After a year or so I saw him at a railway station. Jokingly I shouted the same slangs to greet him. A WTF was written all over his face. I thought he forgot about our exchange and tried to remind him. He refused to know my brother. I apologized and moved on.
Some time later I mentioned this to my brother who said "he has an identical twin."
Omg that's amazing.
This is the best one.
Keep people guessing.
Identical twin here. I work in a shopping centre that my twin had previously worked at. People constantly walk up to me and jump straight into conversation, they sometimes talk for ages before I get to cut in. Most of the time I end up just pointing to my name tag, that stops them pretty quick as they akwardly walk away in silence and confusion.
My twin and I think it is fun not to tell coworkers or new friends that we have a twin, makes for a good first introduction to the other brother.
I get something going similar in my new job (which I've had for 4 years now) because my brother joined at my old job shortly before I left. People come up to me and ask when I changed jobs, and are then surprised to hear how long I've been at the new place.
"But I'm sure I saw you there last week!" They say.
No no, that's just my brother.
Who is seven years younger than me.
And about 6 inches taller.
And 30lbs heavier.
And has a huge beard, whereas I've only ever had stubble.
And his hair is brown while mine is jet black.
And he's much quieter than me.
But other than that, oh yeah, f*ckin' identical mate. I can tell you paid attention during the decade I spent working there and seeing you five times a week...
I was in a play in college and my brother was supportive enough to come to one of the performances with some other family members.
The stage manager saw him and came up to say "TheGingernational, what are you doing in the lobby? You're supposed to be in the green room." To which he responded: "Oh my god, I forgot all my lines!"
She then remembered that I have an identical twin.
One time we were discussing random people who we shared birthdays with and one of my friends told everyone "I don't share a birthday with anyone"... We had to remind her she was a twin.
They think as one, be as one...
I mean, if one was born at 11:59pm and the other at 12:01am....
That would be reasonable but unfortunately for her that wasn't the case, she can continue looking a bit dumb.
Oh, that old scheme.
When we were kids, my twin brother and I were in separate classes for almost everything, having been unjustly split up since primary school.
One year in secondary school, we had a schedule that meant one day a week, we the same teacher for science, but him in a morning class and me in an afternoon class. One particular day this teacher was off for some reason, and a substitute teacher was filling in.
I walk into my afternoon class, sit down with my friends and get my shit out onto my desk. About 5 minutes into the lesson with this substitute teacher, he squares up on me and says loudly in front of the class "Why are you here? You were in my morning class?"
Everyone stops and looks at me.
"Er, no I wasn't" "Yes you were."
I then realised what was going on.
"Ohhh, you're probably thinking of my brother. I have an identical twin and he has science in the morning."
He pauses slightly.
"I've been a teacher for over thirty years. Do you think I've never heard someone tell me that they have an identical twin?"
The whole class is now watching to see how this turns out.
"I swear to you sir, I have an identical twin."
My friends, while laughing, try to back me up. Eventually I had to go to the school office with him to confirm that I do indeed have a twin brother.
Because logically what you'd want to exploit as a twin is going to Science twice in a day...
Identical twin here. My brother and I hung out at an Internet cafe quite a bit when we were in HS. One day, a friend within our circle asked to speak to me on the phone because she thought I was cute and wanted to get to know me more. Of course I had always thought better of myself than I actually was, so I naturally accepted this opportunity. However, the conversation got more weird and awkward as we both could not relate to what each other was saying or describing.
Then she asked me: "wait, were you the one wearing black?" To which I responded, "uhh no. That'd be my brother". And she quickly closed our conversation by saying: "oh I'm sorry, I thought your brother was the cute one. Can you hand the phone to him please"?
I was both slightly insulted for not being cute and messed with :(
EDIT: Those wondering how she could tell: I was more active with sports in HS whereas my brother was not so much. So I guess you can say that girls like em THICC boiz...
Damn youre an identical twin and STILL not the cute one.
Thats gotta hurt.
Have you ever gotten twins mixed up?
Have you ever been reading a book, watching a movie, or even sitting down for a fantastical cartoon and began to salivate when the characters dig into some doozy of a made up food?
You're not alone.
Food is apparently fertile ground for creativity. Authors, movie directors, and animators all can't help but put a little extra time and effort into the process of making characters' tasty delights mouthwatering even for audiences on the other side of the screen.
Read on for a perfect mixture of nostalgia and hunger.
AllWhammyNoMorals asked, "What's a fictional food you've always wanted to try?"
Some people were all about the magical foods eaten in the magical places. They couldn't help but wish they could bite into something with fantastical properties and unearthly deliciousness.
"Enchanted golden apple" -- DabbingIsSo2015
"The Minecraft eating sounds make me hungry" -- FishingHobo
"Gotta love that health regeneration" -- r2celjazz
"Pretty sure those are based off the golden apples that grant immortality. Norse mythology I think?" -- Raven_of_Blades
Take Your Pick
"Nearly any food from Charlie and the Chocolate factory" -- CrimsonFox100
"Came here to say snozzberries!" -- Utah_Writer
"Everlasting Gobstoppers #1, but also when they're free to roam near the chocolate river and the entire environment is edible." -- devo9er
"Lembas" -- Roxwords
"The one that fills you with just a bite? My fat a** would be making sandwiches with two lembas breads and putting bacon, avocado and cheese inside. Then probably go for some dessert afterwards. No wonder why those elves are all skinny, eating just one measly bite of this stuff." -- sushister
Some people got stuck on the foods they saw in the cartoons they watched growing up. The vibrant colors, the artistic sounds, and the exaggerated movements all come together to form some good-looking fake grub.
The One and Only
"Krabby patty 🍔" -- Cat_xox
"And a kelp shake" -- titsclitsntennerbits
"As a kid I always pretended burgers from McDonalds were Krabby Patties, heck from time to time I still do for the nostalgia of it all. Many of my friends did the same thing." -- Thisissuchadragtodo
"The pizza from an extremely goofy movie. The stringy cheese just looked magical lol" -- ES_Verified
"The pizza in the old TMNT cartoon as well." -- gate_of_steiner85
"Only bested by the pizza from All Dogs Go to Heaven." -- Purdaddy
Get a Big Old Chunk
"Those giant turkey drumsticks in old cartoons that characters would tear huge chunks out of. Those things looked amazing, turkey drumsticks in real life suck and are annoying to eat."
Slurp, Slurp, Slurp
"Every bowl of ramen on any anime, ever." -- Cat_xox
"Studio Ghibli eggs and bacon" -- DrManhattan_DDM
"Honestly, any food in anime. I swear to god half the budget no matter what the studio goes into making the food look absolutely delicious." -- Viridun
Finally, some highlighted the things that aren't quite so far-fetched, but still far enough away that it's nothing we'll be eating anytime soon.
That tease can be enough to make your mouth water.
What's In It??
"Butter beer" -- Damn_Dog_Inappropes
"came here to say this. i was pretty disappointed with the universal studio version which was over the top sweet. it was more of a butterscotch root beer. i imagine butter beer to be something more like butter and beer, which wouldn't be crazy sweet, but would have a very deep rich flavor" -- crazyskiingsloth
Slice of the Future
"The microwave pizzas in back to the future two" -- biggiemick91
"I've been fascinated with those for years! They just look so good!" -- skoros
As Sweet As They Had
"The Turkish Delight from Lion Witch & Wardrobe. The real ones I had weren't bad but nothing special." -- spoon_shaped_spoon
"Came here to say this. I know it's a real thing, but I always imagined that it must have been amazing to betray your siblings over." -- la_yes
"You're used to freely available too sweet sweets. For a WW2 era schoolkid, it would have represented all the sweets for an entire year." -- ResponsibleLimeade
Here's hoping you made it through the list without going into kitchen for some snack you didn't actually need.
When a movie rakes in a ton of cash at the box office, the studio that made it has only one thing on its mind: "How do we keep shaking this money tree?"
Unfortunately, that means they make sequels, sometimes sequels on sequels on sequels.
At times, the sequels are solid. They tie nicely into the first film, emphasizing the qualities that brought folks out to the first one, while immersing them into that world for another great couple of hours.
But sometimes, it's wildly clear that the longterm planning behind a sequel was minimal at best. These part two's are truly terrible experiences, made even more disappointing by the excitement created by everyone's love for the first.
Some Redditors shared the worst examples.
Sullivans97 asked, "What is the worst movie sequel ever?"
Plenty of contributions to the thread were noteworthy simply because the Redditors' deep hatred for a sequel spurred them to write a very entertaining review.
"Son of the Mask. Worst sequel. Worst movie. Worst piece of entertainment. Worst experience to sit through as a human being."
Oddly Specific Analogy
"Independence Day: Resurgence."
"What the fu** was that giant heap of steaming camel sh**?"
Two Key Elements
"The plot is mostly driven by Mushu acting like a real piece of sh**, and Shang gets turned into the butt monkey of the movie as a consequence."
"Vastly inferior to the first one."
Just Horrible Decisions Every Step of the Way
"Where is Speed 2?"
"Speeding cruise ship (Zzzzzzz)"
"WTF were they thinking?"
Other people chose to discuss the sequels that, for whatever reason, chose not to include the key attributes that made the first movie so good.
Whether it was the absence of character, actor, or overarching theme, the experience was as puzzling as it was frustrating.
Insert Muscle Here
"Kindergarten Cop 2. Yes it does exist and it is a bad as it sounds. Dolph Lundgren takes over the role of Schwarzenegger." -- TheBassMeister
"Bro, don't be such a jabroni. Imagine, a super ripped, super smart cop-in a mesh tank top-named officer Dolph Lundgren." -- why_not_fandy
"Ugh wtf the movie was great why make another one" -- c_girl_108
"American Psycho 2. It wasn't even originally intended to be a sequel, they just shoved the name on it and added loose references to Patrick Bateman. Awful." -- Mountain_Situation89
"Mila kunas who is in it was told it was a different name and was pissed when they ended up making it a 'sequel' " -- Imfrank123
"Yea, that's the thing. The movie would have been a decent film if it was just a serial killer film and not an AP sequel." -- JennyBean2000
"It had some okay parts, but what they did to Justin Long's character completely undercuts the meaning of the first movie. And no Ryan Reynolds."
Last, some people realized that any film franchise that goes beyond two installments is just asking for things to go downhill in a hurry.
Once you cross three--and even four--your just too far from the source.
What Even Is Home Alone 5?
"Home Alone 3, 4, and 5" -- theWet_Bandits
"I honestly enjoyed 3, sure it made no sense at all, but I can look past that and really enjoyed it. 4 and 5 on the other hand, I barely remember what 4 was about and had completely forgotten that 5 existed until just now." -- botbattler30
End of the Mummy Era
"The third Mummy movie." -- goshawkgirl
"Fun fact: The trailer for Mummy 3 has Brendan Fraser saying "here we go again" and Ben Stiller thought that line was ironically hilarious in terms of cranking out soulless sequels and it inspired the 'here we go again....again' line in the fake trailers at the beginning of Tropic Thunder." -- Call_Me_Koala
Part of the Reboot Frenzy
"Not to repeat others here (hopefully), but the 4th Indiana Jones movie should never have been made."
"For what it is worth, The odd numbers are great, the even numbers are terrible with the last one being one being Steven Segal bad."
So there you have it. A full list of movies to avoid at all costs no matter how bored you are flicking through Netflix lists.
Oftentimes I like to do my best Ghostface impression and aggressively ask people what their favorite scary movies are. Because I personally have a lot! At the same time, I'm also terrified that at any point, I could end up getting my head punched off by Jason Vorhees (Part 8 of the series--best one IMO).
Real life contains the scariest horrors you could ask for. So aren't we all living in a horror movie, in a way? At least, these people sure freakin' were.
In the words of the legendary Mary Vivian Pierce in the film Pink Flamingos, “Murder merely relieves tension”. I’m sure the following Redditors felt differently.
Nothing scarier than the woods at night.
Went into a real deep woods hike for only the second time in my life.
My gps broke and had to rely on my compass. Got turned around a few times because I couldn't remember the direction I came from, and it was getting dark. Lost the trail way.
But the woods are weirdly silent in the dark and alone.
It was around 2am by the time I found the trailhead.
Darn foxes.the simpsons react GIFGiphy
My friend and I got lost late on one foggy night in the Italian countryside. There were rats all over and every once in a while we heard someone scream.
I've never been more sure I was about to get murdered than I was that night.
Could've also been a lynx, but they are much rarer in Italy.
At least she wasn’t speaking in tongues.
My mom is quite the sleep talker, but it's usually pretty short and incoherent when it happens. One night as a teenager, I woke up to her scream-yelling the Hail Mary prayer (my bedroom was across the house and upstairs).
Difficult to get back to sleep after that one.
Sometimes scary sh*t ends up just being funny coincidences. Super funny. Right?
Don’t give them any ideas.
I was exploring an abandoned mental asylum and then got the scare of my life when a scary looking person inside one of the rooms was just staring at me without moving. Turns out some joker had left a cardboard cutout there.
Don’t you hate when that happens?Evil Dead Horror GIF by Coolidge Corner TheatreGiphy
I was driving home on backcountry roads at midnight in heavy fog. Like can't see 10 feet in front of you thick. Suddenly I see an all-white silhouette running in front of the car. Every hair on my body stood up. I immediately think "oh god, oh f*ck, it's a f*cking woman in white, I'm gonna f*cking die"
Nope just a drunk who dove into the ditch.
Gotta love paranoia.
When I was about 12, my parents went out for dinner leaving me home alone. We lived out in the country, on a private road with only three other houses, surrounded by cow fields and wooded areas.
I went into the the kitchen and glanced out the window towards the trees and there in the fading light I could see a person walking slowly through the woods. They were wearing all black, moving slowly and appeared to pause behind trees. My heart started pounding so hard in my ears I couldn't hear anything else and I was weak and shaky from fear. I froze and just watched them. Would they come to the house? Where were they going?
This was before cell phones but I suddenly remembered my mom had left the number of the restaurant by the living room phone. Slowly, I made my way towards the living room, trying to watch this stranger in the woods.
Just as I entered the living room, all the lights in the entire house went out. By this time it was nearly dark outside. I started openly sobbing and in the dark I heard a weird boom like noise. That was it, I ran to my parents room, hid under their bed and sobbed. That's where my mom found me hours later (it felt like).
Well, turns out the stranger in the woods was a stupid cow that had busted through a fence, the lights going out was from an accident a few miles away (hit the power line) and the boom was the pilot light in the gas stove. Man, I have never been that scared in my life though!
I have a lot of questions.
A naked man who was covered in blood chased me across a park at 2 in the morning. I was totally alone. He just wanted money for a bus (????) and luckily nothing bad happened but I thought I was going to die.
But of course, the genuine horrors do exist. And they aren’t scary in a fun horror movie way, they’re actually terrifying because they can happen to anyone.
A scary few seconds.car chase GIF by Mayans M.C.Giphy
I am a "baby" in a car seat in between cousins in backseat. Dad is driving. This is in the 80s and it is my aunt's insistence that I am in this seat even though I am like 5.
A sleeping semi driver is coming over into our lane and there is a cliff on other side. Basically my dad did some amazing driving but semi blew us up. I am uninjured sitting in the seat swinging my legs while everyone is unconscious. They all wake groaning. Dad doesnt wake up.
Long story short just minor scrapes and dad has broken leg. But the crunch of metal and those few seconds/minute of being the only "alive" person was quite fear inducing.
Glad they’re all ok now.
Two days after my now boyfriend told me he liked me he fell from a zip line and broke his back. Almost died. 6 months later he got into a car wreck from a drunk driver - almost died. 6 months after that, he passed out and had to have emergency brain surgery, again, almost died. I now have severe anxiety/separation anxiety/and ptsd. That whole year was a f*cking nightmare
Edit: we're both okay now, the brain injury was almost a year ago. But TBIs take a while to heal so he still has side effects. Thankfully our relationship is still strong; he's physically getting better and I'm healing emotionally too. Lucky for him, the trauma of the injuries has caused him to forget the majority of the pain and memories of those incidents.
ALWAYS wear a helmet.
Driving home from work at 23, listening to my favorite song.
I pull up to a red light, and see this guy on a motorcycle coming up next to me in the other lane. I rolled down my window to compliment his bike when he stops. He doesn't, and runs the red light. He hits a car going at least 55mph. His motorcycle shatters apart, he goes flying, hits the hood of another car, and lands on the ground and rolls into the curb (no helmet). The car he hit with his motorcycle was totaled. I had to step over his body to talk to the police. He was still alive when they got there. I regret not holding his hand. It was just a normal day, and all of a sudden it felt like the rug was pulled from out beneath me. He was only 18.
Edit: The song was Sunny by Boney M., for those curious
What did we learn today, kids? Foxes scream like humans, shadowy figures are usually cows or drunken rednecks, and once again, PLEASE WEAR A HELMET WHEN YOU RIDE ANY KIND OF BIKE.
Scary sh*t surrounds us. But where there is horror, there are heroes. So next time you think you see a scary figure in the woods, know that Bruce Campbell is probably right around the corner
I hate hypocrites. They are the bane of my existence. All you have to do is stand behind your words. How hard is that? You said them. I especially get peeved when people bloviate on a topic and condemn and holler but then when it comes to them doing it... silence.Redditor u/ErrForceOnes wanted to know about the moments people chose to curiously "pay no mind" by asking... What is a GIANT hypocrisy that no one seems to mind?
Hypocrisy is everywhere; it's like a disease. And sadly everyone does it. Some of us indulge in smaller doses than others. But some people live their life by it. Like how can you support civil servants, like police, firefighters, etc... yet try to find ways to hide money in order to not pay taxes? Tell me... I'll wait.

You can get away with WAY more crap, in general, when you're attractive.
But we all kind of aspire to attractiveness and it's not like it's attractive people's fault, exactly. So what is there to be done?
So true. Money and beauty are treated like virtues and they aren't. They're luck of the draw. It probably helps you to be a better person if people assume that you are gentle and clever just by looking at your face or wallet.

People screaming at you if you don't want Kids and Kids are the greatest thing in the World and then turn around and whine how expensive they are and how annoying yadda yadda.
Yeah see... humans are a mess. And too often then not, personal conviction and dignity are just a myth, or a punchline. Double standards have always been a way of life. And many of us have begrudgingly learned to navigate.

If a skinny person wears something out of the ordinary, it's a fashion statement and awesome. It can even just be something like a crop top or overalls.
But God forbid a fat person wear the same thing.
The hypocrisy hypocrisy. People love to call it out but rarely notice it on themselves and if they notice it then it's something completely different or a distraction.
That's the worst. I hate that I have to hate that. But if I don't hate it, then the hate will just continue. So, really, my hate comes from my love of an end to hate. So anyone who hates my hate hates love. And we must hate anyone who hates love!
My own personal hypocrisy; When I was a lot less well off financially, delivering pizzas trying to get through college, I kept a cup of coins in my car. When a homeless person would approach me for spare change, I gave them the cup. Most of the time it was nearly full, so there was probably 20-30 dollars in there.
Now that I have a good salaried job, even if I've got a few bucks in my wallet, I tend to not even make eye contact anymore. I know it's awful, I know it makes me crappy, but the last 4-5 years have made me a jaded craphead towards people in general. I used to be so hopeful and I wanted to help everyone, and tried to live a life that reflected that.
Now, while my general and political morality is pretty much the same, my personal morality has gotten more grey. I'd jaded, I hate people, I assume the worst of people I used to assume the best of. I don't really care about the strangers around me like I used to, but I still expect everyone else to.
It's so freaking frustrating when it becomes entrenched. "You did this, it's your fault" "you should've known to do x, its your fault" Yeah bro your problems aren't my problems and if all you do is make excuses and blame me for them, it's not going to be my fault when you don't develop as a person and accomplish your dreams. I'm sure they'll find someone to blame though.

Politicians work part time, are given free housing, education, and health care, and exempt from the everyday violence we experience, but refuse to lift a finger to help us.
Just speak a truth and live it. Yes, it maybe hard. But what part of life isn't? Hypocrisy is just lying. Plain and simple. And it's a sin to lie.
