People Break Down Which Products They Used To Love Until There Was A Decline In Quality

There are few things more disappointing these days than when you figure out that a product you used to love just isn't worth it anymore. I think back to all of the clothes I used to wear as a teen that I would only later realize was of the shoddiest quality. That stuff would fall apart after only a few washes. The experience really ignited a distaste for fast fashion.

People told us all about the products that they hate now after Redditor termyterner asked the online community,

"What's something you really used to like till it declined in quality?"

"Used to only be..."

"Political subreddits.

Used to only be bad during election cycles, now it's just nonstop for bots, trolls, and people that enjoy mainlining disinformation. Get your news from better sources folks."

Yes_Indeed

Well, the internet is terribly toxic, soooo... is this a surprise?

"They used to be..."

"Blundstone Boots. They used to be so well built. Now, the soles are crap and basically disintegrate before the boots even look well-worn. I REPEAT BLUNDSTONE BOOTS. THEY ARE NOW TERRIBLE."

Marlowebabe

Bad quality shoes will ruin your day (and cost so much more money in the long run).

"And it seems..."

"Oreos. And it seems like nobody else noticed, but Oreos taste like a cheap imitation of the ones I grew up with. Why is nobody talking about how awful Oreos have gotten?"

meseeks

I don't even bother nowadays. I used to really enjoy them, but all that sugar is gross.

"How I hate..."

"The Walking Dead. How I hate to say that."

EntrepreneurIll

I stopped watching around the time Glen and Abraham were killed. I just completely lost interest. Such a shame.

"I challenge anyone..."

"Ritz crackers.

I challenge anyone to try and spread anything on a Ritz cracker without it exploding into dust."

"After Covid hit..."

"Restaurants. After Covid hit all the restaurants in my area have had noticeably reduced food quality."

Chip2Playz

Food supply chains have been pretty disrupted. We'll be seeing this for awhile.

"Every place..."

"Every place that has a spicy chicken sandwich or a buffalo sandwich. Always start out nice and hot but a couple of months in they keep backing down the heat level to appease people who think ranch dressing is medium-hot. Eventually, it's just fried chicken with a closed bottle of Franks waved over it."

"They were actually..."

"They were actually rather decent in the early 2000s, but then Quizno's went on a huge expansion and Subway tried to copy them, but without the quality ingredients."

BobBelcher2021

"I used to love..."

"I used to love Chinese buffets. But in the last few years, I've noticed that almost every one I go to is just terrible.

I don't know if the quality has changed, or just my taste."

Well, that was disappointing. Now my brain won't stop going over all the places and things I used to enjoy that absolutely suck now.

I guess I'm better off––and so are you.

People Describe How They Survived Near Death Experiences

As morbid as it is, death is the inevitable yin to life's yang.

The inevitable end of our mortality looms ahead for all of us, but hopefully it's not for a long time.

That doesn't mean there are close calls along the way.

Not everyone is fortunate, but there are the lucky few who somehow managed to cheat death and lived to talk about their close calls.

A "fun fact" refers to a piece of information that might not be widely known.

Though, the "fun" in "fun fact" is often widely debatable.

Indeed, more often than not, people find or are told a "fun fact" about anything from an animal species to a famous celebrity which might make them want to cry or even throw up.

Professionals Confess Industry Secrets From Their Chosen Field

We've all heard some conspiracy theories about certain businesses, most of which are outrageously false.

That laundromats are simply a facade for shadier practices (including, not so ironically, money laundering) or that the Coca-Cola company invented "New Coke" with the express purpose of improving sales on original Coke.

But every now and then, we can't help but wonder what really goes on behind closed doors in certain professions.

And are eager to hear all the juicy tidbits from people working in that industry.

Finding a healthy work/life balance is extremely difficult.

Depending on their jobs, some people are barely home in time to spend any quality time with their loved ones, and weekends are hardly relaxing, as they are often devoted to chores and errands.

These are only a few reasons many people have pushed to adopt four day work weeks.

And while there seem to be multiple advantages to one's mental health and self-esteem, could eliminating 8 hours of work possibly have any downsides to it?
