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.

People Divulge Which Brands They Absolutely Swear By

Don't be alarmed: There are some terrible corporations out there (looking at you, Nestle) but there are also some great brands that are selling decent products.

I know, surprising, right? Maybe we've all just gotten used to brands selling things of questionable quality that when we stumble across something worthwhile it stuns us.

Hold on tight when you find a brand deserving of your loyalty!

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

"What brand(s) do you swear by and why?"

You know what would be great?

If society could just stop with arbitrary dress codes. If you're not working with the public, why should you have to dress up so much? If you're a police officer, then it makes sense that you'd wear a uniform that identifies you as a police officer. If you're Ted from IT who sits in the backroom all day, I really don't see why you have to come in every day in a suit and tie.

Let's just toss them out, shall we?

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor Levels2ThisBrush asked the online community,

"What should be socially acceptable but isn't?"

People Share Their Best 'F**k This, I'm Outta Here' Experiences

As much as many of us don't like to disrupt the status quo, there is only so much time a person can tolerate a miserable situation before things become so unbearable that they ultimately have to peace out.

For some people, it takes a while for them to reach a breaking point. Eventually, there comes a time when they realize their self-worth is more important than continuing to please others who don't appreciate them for the sake of keeping up with appearances.

People Break Down Which Things Always Taste Good Whether They're Served Hot Or Cold

As we enter into the summer months, people now have to decide whether or not they want their morning coffee to be hot or iced.

Lucky for them, it's delicious either way.

One could make an argument that foods that are equally delicious hot or cold are perhaps the best, or at least the most reliable.

And this can include foods which are not customarily sold both hot and cold (cold pizza anyone?).

Redditor NectarineOther4989 was curious to hear which foods people enjoy either hot or cold, leading them to ask:

"What is something that tastes good both hot and cold?"
