There is nothing more frustrating than the things we cannot say, but desperately want to.

Sometimes, we might find ourselves in situations where we are positively desperate to speak up, but for whatever reason can't.

Even though we know deep down, that people will be better off, or things might run more smoothly if we said something.

Redditor MCKlassik was curious to hear the things that people would benefit from hearing, but will likely never be told, leading them to ask:

"What is something most people need to hear but no one has the guts to tell people?"

In some cases, it might be worse not to say something, especially if it might actually help their situation.

But when that isn't the case, it's probably best to suck up our pride, and keep our big mouths shut.

Who doesn't love a theme party?

When you not only get to dress up in something completely over the top, but also get to bear witness to everyone else's zany outfits in-keeping with the party's theme.

Be it Regency era, glam rock, or fairy tale villains.

Or what if the challenge is just to be blatantly inappropriate?

A theme which got the imagination of Redditor StockD0ctorStockD0ctor running wild, resulting in their taking to Reddit to ask:
