Ever been so annoyed wih someone or something that you reach your limit? You know what I'm talking about... when you're just so fed up that you can't take it anymore? I felt that way after ending a toxic friendship. It was such a relief when it was over. There had been a string of bad behavior and one day I hit my breaking point and thought, That's it. I'm done. Don't forget: There are also times when you make a choice only to learn your lesson rather quickly, too!

After Redditor ROYALTYAVE asked the online communiy, "What's one thing that made you say, 'Never again' and why?" people shared their stories. I found myself cringing as I read some of these submissions because hey, I can't say I blame any of the people involved!


"I applied and got in..."

Law school. I applied and got in because my parents thought I would be a good fit. I stuck out the first year because I was heavily influenced into thinking my career paths only included law, engineering or medicine. After the first year I was miserable and depressed, dropped out and now I'm doing something that I'm passionate about and is less saturated than law. My dad is still trying to convince me to pursue a JD.

"I'm not going through that..."

Getting an endometrial biopsy. Worst pain of my life. If I ever get cancer they can just take the whole damn uterus out, I'm not going through that again without anesthesia.

"Almost ruined my life."

Alcohol and Cocaine. Almost ruined my life. Started drinking at 16, started doing coke at 26, and took till I was damn near 41 to quit. Dumped my last baggie of blow out beside my garage 23 years ago and haven't touched the stuff since.

"My ex."

My ex. We were giving long distance a shot, it was an on and off relationship for like 3 years. I traveled 18 hours to see him only to find out he had been cheating on me and no one from his circle even knew I existed. I cried for a straight 18 hour bus ride back home. Never again.

"Roommates suck..."

Living with a couple. Roommates suck in general but a 3 times in my life I split an apartment with a couple and it was awkward at best, and truly miserable when they fought.

"I went on an overseas trip..."

Go on an overseas tour with a close friend. Always do a mini trip or spend a weekend with them exploring a new place to test the waters. I went on an overseas trip with someone who was constantly late, couldn't pay for anything, didn't want to do any of the activities we had planned, sulked around...the list goes on. We had completely different travel styles. She wanted to sleep in...I wanted to organise things, be on time and plan ahead. Basically our travel styles just did not mesh. I ended up having such a bad time I booked a flight home. Would never again go on a holiday with her again or any friend with a similar personality. Never again.

"Sure..."

Selling plasma 2x a week. Sure, it seems like free money to mess around watching tv and getting free cookies. But after a few months it occured to me that me constantly feeling exhausted wasn't me not sleeping enough. It was me missing tons of blood.

"I think..."

Working retail.

I think it's something every young person should do... once. People suck, especially with our BS culture of "the customer is always right."

"Open up my home..."

Open up my home to help someone. She ended up being a manipulative miserable cuss of a person who made my and my children's lives miserable. My husband (now ex) refused to see beyond her vagina and ignored his own kids' pleas for help. Kids and I moved out and he's now miserable and alone with no relationship with his kids. She left him at the first sign of his financial troubles.

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
