People Break Down Which Things Are Never As Good As People Expect Them To Be

We place expectations on a variety of things that wind up letting us down.

Remember when Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008) was released in theaters? We all know what that heavily anticipated movie turned out to be – a critical flop. (Seriously? Aliens?)


Or how about that new restaurant you wanted to try (pre-pandemic) and wound up having the dry heaves after initially drooling over the menu?

And that new job where you realized it was not at all what you signed up for – "Welcome to your first day at Juicy Lucy's – here's your mop and bucket."

To find out the things people were disillusioned by, Redditor CipherShade asked:

"What's never as good as people think it's going to be?"

Working With Wine

"I work in the wine industry and constantly have to disappoint people who want in just because they like to drink wine. There's a common misconception that all we do is drink wine on the job. I wish."

Breakfast Blues

"The second bowl of cereal."

Absence Doesn't Always Make the Heart Grow Fonder

"Reunions. Whether it's a family reunion or a school reunion, you go to them looking forward to catching up on the last many years."

"Once you get there, you realize why it's been so many years you haven't talked."

Hanky-Panky While Hammered

"Sex when filthy drunk."

SchwiftySqaunch

"Ain't THAT the truth. Everything is hella spinning and the other person looks f'king weird. They just lay there not even trying. You can't think straight."

Having Endless Days

"Staying home doing whatever you want. "

"This pandemic put me in my house right before I lost my job and couldn't get back to college because, well, the pandemic. Because of that I've been the past eight months doing anything I want and waking up and sleeping at whatever hours. The goverment is providing unemployed people some money every month so I'm not out of money. I can spend all my days watching series, playing videogames, listening to music. Whatever and yet I feel completely useless and bored.

After some time I won't even do any of these things. I want to do these things as a reward after a long week where I can finally get to watch that one show. I want to produce something worth while, wake up early and tired and having to put up with another day of work. Never thought I was going to miss going to school. Thankfully I'm going to start a long distance college on the course I've always wanted. It's still long distance which is far from ideal but it's something."

The Thing About Trilogies

"The 3rd movie in the series."

JesusChristSuperDerp

"Return of the king would like to have a word."

It's Fast Food For a Reason

"Eating those damn 5 layer burritos from Taco Bell. Almost sharted my pants. It was literally like a stream of liquid sh*t when I tried to pass gas lol"

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?"

People Dispel Common Hoaxes Some Folks Still Believe

Those who are truly superstitious have trouble shaking off customs which others might find somewhat silly.

These include holding your breath when passing a cemetery, throwing salt over your shoulder after spilling it, or not stepping on cracks for fear of breaking their mother's backs.

But even though it has been irrefutably proven that there is absolutely no validity to these superstitions, these same people will likely never stop performing these customs.

Nor will some others ever stop believing myths and hoaxes which have likewise proven to be one-hundred percent false.

Redditor Jimbo_Jigs was curious to learn the things people will never stop believing, despite ample evidence to the contrary, leading them to ask:

"What is proven to be a hoax but people still believe it to be true?"
