People Imagine Which Minor Conveniences They'd Give People

A life of convenience.

Wouldn't that be lovely?

Can you imagine driving around and only encountering green lights?

Or always having the phone battery charged?

That is what dreams are made of.

What if you were given a superpower to make all of that happen?

What would you do with it?


RedditorAdAppropriate6975wanted hear about what small, good things some of us would do for others if we had the power.

They asked:

"You’ve been granted the power to bless people with minor conveniences. How do you make their lives slightly better?"

I'd be giving people money.

Even if it's just singles.

That's a small start.

Thank You

"From this day forward, you will always choose the fastest-moving line."

"That's impossible for me. It's a fundamental, immutable law of the universe. To change that would be to nullify all of existence as we know it. Hitting stop lights is part of the same fundamental physical force."

PROPER POCKETS FOR ALL!!!

"May your cellphone always have enough charge when you need it. Also, for the ladies: May you always have at least one pocket on your outfit."

APeacefulWarrior

"40m here. I bought a pair of light airy linen pants for summer. Thought I had bought the same brand as a pair I bought last summer and LOVED. First difference I noticed was a lack of back pocket… thought oh… that’s weird."

"Then I tried to put my wallet in my front pocket and it was too shallow. Wallet literally couldn’t sit in the pocket. Pocket so shallow as to be unusable. I finally understood your pain ladies. I had no idea. I’m so sorry. Consider me an ally in the PROPER POCKETS FOR ALL battle going forward."

Be There

"Your keys, wallet, and phone are always where you expect them to be."

MisterBastahrd

"Hopefully you don’t start having misguided expectations lol. I’m imagining a guy recognizing this happen and experimenting. He imagines his wallet is in an irretrievable void, then searches his house and finds it nowhere. Knowing that it’s gone, he would never expect it to be anywhere he’d find it."

Spread It

"Their butter is always at the perfect consistency for being spread."

My butter is always a mess, so this would be perfect.

"Odorless, silent farts that always get rid of your stomach aches."

THIS!!!

"Everybody's talking voice actually sounds like the one they hear in their heads."

Daft_Sauce

"Wait people hear the voice in their heads? For me it's not like a voice but more like... floating words or so. I never really tried to describe it but it's sure AF not an actual voice Or are you talking about the way you hear your own voice while actually talking?"

Interesting-Gear-819

"I feel like I'm the only one who doesn't hate the sound of my own voice."

To match is Divine

"From this day forward all of your socks shall magically be waterproof and nothing will ever stick to them."

Joe-Schmeaux

"I threw out all socks I owned and then bought a couple boxes of the same kind of sock. I just throw all my socks in a bin now and pick two at random. Never need to throw away one sock because the matching on got a hole."

"Now everyone has single use socks, because they won't live in a world that permanently smells like feet. Socks become the number one target of Greenpeace. You go into hiding due to the environmental disaster you have created."

The Zzzzsss...

"The power to fall asleep once your head hits the pillow."

227743

"Clearly I don't think big enough, my blessing was going to be: every night when you fluff/squish/arrange your pillow to go to sleep, it's perfect the first time."

sonyka

"I can do this and my wife always complains about it. I can literally decide to fall asleep, turn around and be gone in seconds. Has always been like this, don’t know why."

KevinSpence

Perfection

"The toilet seat will always be in the correct state depending on your business when entering the bathroom."

I would love for someone to do ALL of those things for me. Please and thank you.

People Divulge Which Things They Swear To Be True Even Without Tangible Proof

Whenever someone requests you to back up whatever wisdom or knowledge you just imparted, you somehow doubt if whatever you verbalized is actually true.

Without explanation, sometimes you just know things to be absolutely true. Call it your gut or strong spidey sense, but many of us have these moments where we are at a loss for words but innately know something to be undeniably accurate.

People Explain Which Professions They Have Absolutely No Respect For

Anyone managing to hold down a steady job during challenging times is generally understood as admirable.

Honest living, as they say, is something that is commendable.

While that is true to some extent, there are certain ways people earn money that is frowned upon by others who view the work as completely objectionable.

People Break Down Which Villains Were Terrifying Because They Were Totally Right

Even though we always root for the hero in film, television and books, it's often the villain which lingers in our memory.

From Captain Hook to Regina George, it's hard not to admire their calculating, duplicitous ways, not to mention their often snazzy attire.

Interestingly, the villains who often terrify us the most are those that we find ourselves relating to in some capacity.

If it doesn't necessarily justify their actions, in the end, being aware of what led them to become what they are makes us all the more fascinated, and even more terrified of them.

Sometimes, we might even find ourselves flat out rooting for them... Is Miranda Priestley really the Devil in The Devil Wears Prada?

People Confess Which Discontinued Items They Want To See Make A Comeback

Ice cream lovers of the 90s fondly remember Viennetta, an ice cream cake made of ripples of vanilla ice cream and compound chocolate which made one feel like they were eating something they'd be served in a high-end patisserie, and not found in your supermarket's frozen aisle.

While Breyer's discontinued Viennetta in the late 1990s, Good Humor delighted fans when they began to redistribute it in January of 2021.

If Viennetta could find its way back into the frozen aisle, one can't help but think about other long-discontinued things we would love to see back in action.

Be it a flavor of ice cream, potato chip or soft drink, a former TV show, a festival or parade, or even modes of transportation, who doesn't occasionally find themselves falling down a nostalgic rabbit hole and wonder "if only..."
