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."


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."


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?"


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."


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."


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."


"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.

So let's talk about how a dog owner on Facebook learned her dog's "adorable" behavior was, in fact, furious masturbation.

Readers, if you know anything about me you know I love a good plot twist and I love chonky puppers.

Yesterday, life combined my two great loves in a hilarious and inappropriate way.

I was mindlessly scrolling through my dog groups on Facebook when a video with a few hundred laugh reacts but almost no comments caught my eye.

The still from the video was a pudgy little Frenchie, so obviously I had to read and watch.

Have you ever fantasized about what it would be like to win the lottery? Having money for the rest of your life, as far as the eye can see, to cover your expenses.

And have you thought about all the things you would buy if you could really afford them? Are they ALL practical things, or are some of them silly?

We always love to fantasize about what life would be like if money were no object. And you are not alone!

One of the most freeing realizations I've had was when I understood that not everyone was going to like me.

That's just the way it is for all of us, and I learned that it would be unfair for me to dedicate so much time worrying about what others might think.

It changed my life—improved it, I'd say.

That, combined with my willingness to take responsibility for my own actions, was crucial to my self-development.

Whether it's an epiphany or experience, there are many things that can happen and can successfully shift your perspective.

People shared their stories after Redditor drewyourstory asked the online community:

"What life event or experience changed your perspective?"
