People Break Down Which Seemingly Uncivilized Behaviors Are All Too Common In Modern Society

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

"We delight..."

"We delight in the deaths of others as long as we feel it was justified. But when the reverse happens we act all high and mighty like we wouldn't engage in the same behavior."

"Slaughtering each other..."

"Slaughtering each other via warfare to solve political differences. It's standard policy worldwide."

Indeed it is. And it seems impossible to stop.

"Especially..."

"Littering. Especially dropping cigarette butts on the ground/flicking them out the window.

The world is not your personal ashtray/garbage bin."

Every now and then I find new trash in my yard and I am constantly amazed by how nasty people can be.

"Mobbing someone..."

"Mobbing someone because of their opinion or for a comment they made a long time ago, even if that time was yesterday."

NoSoyPoll

"The fact..."

"Xenophobia. The fact that racism and racial violence still exist is an indicator that we're still tribal primates in fancy clothes."

And it makes no sense! It's not based in reality. We are truly a tribal species.

"Shouting..."

"Shouting while arguing, refusing to listen to the opinions of others, basically the inability to debate and maintain proper communication."

"Letting people die..."

"Letting people die of curable conditions simply because they can't afford healthcare."

Probably the biggest reason why much of the Western world looks at the United States with shame in their eyes.

"Parents forcing..."

"Parents forcing their kids to hug family/friends despite the kid being uncomfortable doing it. They feel uncomfortable for a reason."

"During the holiday season..."

"During the holiday season, customers take products off of our online fulfillment carts. Y'all have legs. Get your own."

"Using phone speakers..."

"Using phone speakers in public. I don't care what you and your friend think about that restaurant, or how much that Spotify jam speaks to you. Nobody else wants to hear it."

We truly need to stop all of these, don't you think?

Some?

No?

Okay then.

I tend to avoid public bathrooms if I can help it. They are terrible places. Few are clean and I admit I am a bit of a clean freak. My beautiful bottom will not grace a dirty toilet seat, no thank you. I have standards.

I'm being only sort of serious. I've been in a pinch before. But have you ever seen a gas station bathroom that was utterly destroyed by the patron (or patrons) before you? It's a horrible sight. 0/10: Do not recommend.

Naturally, some crazy things happen in your local public restroom. We heard some stories after Redditor RuffNBoy asked the online community,

"What is the wackiest thing you've seen in a public restroom?"

People Break Down Which Behaviors Scream "I'm Not That Smart'

One should never be fooled by a first impression.

Certain people might behave in a way that is less than indicative of what they are actually like, and might prove to be far more impressive, or much less friendly, once you get to know them a little better.

However, sometimes people will behave in a certain way which leaves one unable to avoid making assumptions about people.

Namely, their intelligence.

Redditor sparklingshanaya was curious to hear what behavioral traits the Reddit community took as a sign of possessing a considerable lack of intelligence, leading them to ask:

"What are some behaviors that scream unintelligence?"

One of my favorite horror films ever is Black Christmas (1974). It's the perfect slasher film. It's scary. It's uncompromising. It's sordid. It's eerie. It leaves you with a horrible feeling in the pit of your stomach. It features some great acting, too! There are some powerhouse talents in it, including Olivia Hussey, Keir Dullea, Margot Kidder, and Andrea Martin.

But did you know that the film has been remade? It's been remade twice, as a matter of fact. The first remake, which was released in 2006, was so ridiculous. Not even Martin, who showed up in a glorified cameo in the role of a sorority house mother, could save it.

It was remade again in 2019 — this one bore few similarities to the films that came before it. One wondered why this one even had the same name, but there you have it.

Suffice it to say that the original Black Christmas is untouchable. But it is not the only film out there that should never have been remade. Far from it.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor CrescendoX asked the online community,

"What movie is so perfect that if it would remade, it would be a crime against humanity?"
