People Break Down Which Things Are Apparently Too Much To Ask For

For some reason, it seems like too much to ask people to just put on a mask during a global pandemic and to stop being difficult, but here we are. There are politicians out there who refuse to make sacrifices for the sake of public health, including a certain Georgia congresswoman who referred to Covid-19 measures as "the mark of the beast." So that's where we are right now. Isn't that great?

After Redditor HornyChateau asked the online community, "What, apparently, is too much to ask for?" people shared their observations.


My damn coworkers to show up to their damn shifts on time so I can go home and live my life.

"Using a pair of headphones..."

Using a pair of headphones instead of the phone's speakers while listening to music or taking a phone call in public.

"People not slamming doors..."

People not slamming doors or stomping while walking through the house.

"I work for a multi-billion dollar company..."

To not pee on the toilet seat.

I work for a multi-billion dollar company and almost all office employees have professional degrees but there is still pee on the toilet seats.

"I hate those people."

Don't treat someone else's stuff like garbage. Use a coaster, take your shoes off, be careful with their electronic device, don't use their nice towels to clean up a mess, don't make their life harder because you're a guest in their home. If someone lends their item to you, give it back in the same condition as it was lent.

I'm not a person who thinks stuff is more important than people, but like, whatever you're using of theirs cost them actual money, and they'd probably like to get more use out of it after you're finished. But there really are people who will just wreck your stuff and not even give a damn! They'll act like you're the a-hole for caring. I hate those people.

"We are a family of four..."

For someone to unload the dishwasher. We are a family of four with a friend staying with us. There are 2 other adults in this house, who, instead of unloading the dishwasher, just use dishes from it as needed. And then put the dirty dishes on the counter. It is infuriating.

"I'm so tired..."

Being a proper friend. I'm so tired of putting in all the effort I can to be a good friend, a decent person, and just being cast aside or ignored in the end. I get used up like a tissue.

"My current catchphrase..."

Currently listening to my 5-year-old and 3-year-old screaming at each other. 5-year-old saying "I'll put you in the garbage!" And 3-year-old screaming "Nooooooo! YOU'RE GARBAGE!" At the top of her lungs.

My current catchphrase is "I need a nap."

"Not paying attention..."

Awareness of other people in public spaces. Some people just go into a public space and sprawl.

Not paying attention at the light when it turns green could make somebody behind you late if they have to wait another cycle.

They take up the whole street by walking down it while on their phone not paying attention.

They let their kids run around, unaware or not caring about the fact that bumping into an elderly person could very well hurt them.

Some people have very good reasons to do this, but others, clearly not. I feel like it's gotten worse since COVID, too. A little awareness and respect for the people around you would really help.

"That people actually think..."

That people actually think about the sh!t they're saying and hold themselves to the same standard that they hold everyone else to.

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

What isn’t taught in history class but should be?

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

What do you believe?

Is there a GOD in the sky?

Is he guiding us and helping us?

Life is really hard. Why is that is a big entity is up there loving us?

Atheists have taken a lot of heat for what feels like shunning GOD.

What if they've been right all along?

Maybe let's take a listen and see what they really think.

Redditor __Jacob______ wanted to hear from the people who don't really believe all that "God" stuff. They asked:

"Atheists, what do you believe in?"

The list of what irritates me is endless.

I mean... breathing too loud or dust can set me off.

I'm a bit unstable, yes.

But I'm not alone.

So let's discuss.

"What never fails to piss you off?"
