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.

The finite nature of a hotel stay can lead guests to behave in ways they wouldn't normally. And where there is saucy behavior, there are the artifacts left behind.

Typically, I would write an intro about my own experiences with the weird kids at school, but I WAS the weird kid in school. Not in a bad way, more like a “I had a John Waters phase” when I was 16 and everyone knew it. So like, cool-weird. At least I hope so.

Schools aren’t always so lucky to have the cool kinds of weird kids though. The spectrum of weird extends even further than that, and can sometimes end up very disasterous.

U/Imaginary_East5786 asked: What was the weirdest thing the weird kid did at school?

​Let’s start with the grossest of the gross. Because why not.

Was it worth it?

He heard that you'd automatically get suspended if you peed your pants at school. He wanted to find out if it was true, peed his pants, got suspended.

Scientific method:

> Observation: 'I've heard that by peeing your pants you will be suspended'

> Hypothesis: If I pee my pants I will be suspended

> Experiment: I peed my pants and I got suspended

> Conclusion: If I pee my pants I get suspended

Glez_fdezdavila_

Uhhh what was the intention here?

He got mad that he didn't understand how to play a game at lunchtime so he started hitting and punching the nearest person to him, who happened to be me. When I shoved him away and asked him what the hell was he doing, he whipped his unit.out, charged at me and when I shoved him away from me again he started crying and ran away with his member still sticking out.

​Next ones up are the lowkey (or even highkey) disturbing stories. These weird kids can get a little scary.

Boom theret.

At my middle school, someone decided to get a little attention with a good old fashioned bomb threat. Except they thought that a bomb threat meant literally writing "bomb threat" somewhere. Worse yet, they misspelled the f*ck out of it, and wrote "boom theret."

So we had to go on a brief, very awkward lockdown while the police checked the perimeter for booms.

I hope there was no overlap in the columns.

She wrote a list of all the girls and boys she wanted to kiss and murder and then casually passed it out on the playground.

2 separate lists or just the 1?

Same list 2 columns lol.

Holy crap.

Had the weird kid in high school ask the teacher to use the bathroom. She said no and this dude legit stabbed his hand with a pencil. Went all the way through then asked if he could now...sh*t was wild.

This was Pearl High School in Mississippi. This was the school Luke Woodham shot and killed his girlfriend and her friend at the school. This kid stabbed himself with the pencil about 2 months after that happened. This was late 1997.

​Most of the time, however, the weird kids are pretty d*mn funny.

Ok, but this takes a lot of skill.

Had a kid nicknamed "cheeseburger" in the grade ahead of me in high school. He got his nickname because when it was time for his class to go to lunch, he snuck into the roof and crawled his way into the cafeteria, dropped down and proceeded to steal all the cheeseburger put out for lunch. Unfortunately they caught him in the act and sent him to the principal's office.

A year later he was caught stealing a teacher's computer, and in the process of being arrested he bit the officers hand, getting him sent to juvi never to be heard of again.

Every school had the cat girl.

The weird kid at my highschool tied a string around his pencil case and pulled out around the halls pretending it was a dog. He still lives in my hometown. I think unemployed.

Oh also weird girl in middle school acted like a cat. She would meow and hiss at people, lick the water fountain and rub her body on the teacher's legs. In 8th grade. I have no idea where she ended up.

Mood.

Weird kid in elementary was a self proclaimed alien. Once, while waiting for the bus, she told me "On my planet we eat people like you" and proceeded to bite me. We later became friends in high school and she used to give me massages during lunch break in the quad. Just realized now she was likely tenderizing me.

Iheartrevolution

I was exactly this kind of weird.

He didn't say much, but if asked, he would go to the front of the class and perform Tip-Toe Through the Tulips with all of the emotion and volume of Tiny Tim, holding nothing back.

The last I heard, he became an energy trader, made a ton of money and married well.

I can definitely relate to that last one. In middle school, my English teacher would let me go to the front of the class and perform monologues or songs from Broadway musicals. Weird, but that’s what happens when schools cut funding for the arts and the theatre kids have no outlet.

It's fair to say that just because you're a parent doesn't mean you have the abilities to properly teach.
