We all have those people, or that one person in particular, that specimen that really makes our skin crawl or our blood boil. It's time call out those people. It is time to expose the rot of humanity. If only we had never met... it's all very "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind." But that movie had a serious point.

Redditor u/Yeetusyeetus123yeet wanted everyone to expose who is the person they want to expose for so many reasons by asking... [SERIOUS]Who's one person you wish you never knew/met?


Gaslighter...

A neighbourhood friend growing up. Totally manipulative and would gaslight everyone around them even as a kid. Would turn people against each other and emotionally blackmail them.

Gunar

This guy named Gunar at camp who told my friends [who then told me] that I had a really big nose and that's what made me unattractive. This was 25+ years ago and I can't believe that that stupid kid's comment created what's turned into a nearly life-long complex. (also, some friends, huh?).

Certain people will always leave a stain on our hearts and souls. And, in retrospect, we have probably all left an imprint better left forgotten when we face facts.

When matters of the heart and feelings get entangled, there is normally no hope for a peaceful resolution, only a venomous finale. The heart wants what it wants.

It was Me...

This person in middle school.

They were a fine person. But I screwed up our friendship so badly that it haunts me, so I wish I could forget they exist.

Evil

My psycho ex. Broke me down. Berated me. Kept me from my roommates, my friends, my parents. Threatened me many times. Threw a lamp at my head. Cheated on me a bunch and knowingly gave me two STDs. Called me all sorts of names. Controlled me. What I ate, when I slept, who I saw. I'm so glad I got out of there.

The "New" Person...

Last year I introduced the new girl to my friend group in school. I definitely regret that now, they started ignoring me and suddenly I had no friend group.

They were not your real friends, trust me this new girl did you a favour. You can find some that value you now, and that will happen and you'll be happy again, I promise.

She left a gift...

I would say my ex-wife, but without her I wouldn't have my daughter so... I guess I'm glad I've met everyone I've met. Brought me here, and here isn't so bad.

Everybody is going to be who they are going to be. Maya Angelou famously said... "believe people when they tell you who they are the first time." Truer words have never been spoken.

And often those people we meet from birth or they are in positions of authority that should know better. The lesson? Don't become them.

Bosses

I have a couple of bosses who had screwed me over and at the time I really wanted to find some way to get revenge, but it always crossed my mind that it'll pass and I'll get over it and forgive them.

I have mostly moved on from all that crap, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't still think of doing something stupid whenever I walk by my old workplace.

In December... 

My 7 year relationship ended in Dec. I had decided that I wanted all of that but had that doubt if she truly was the person I wanted it with. She destroyed me and played games with my head and only through opening up about it with friends did I understand the depth of her manipulation and abuse of me. That last part struck me, I'm healing but still broken.

My brother. As terrible as it sounds, let me explain. He's 2 years younger than me, physically and emotionally abuses me (has since I was about 12) and gets away with it.

He's a spoiled, narcissistic a**hole who always gets what he wants, and if he doesn't, he throws a tantrum. He had pertussis at 8 weeks old and barely survived. Honestly I wish he hadn't. He's made my life a living hell. I'm currently typing with one working eye because I changed a song he liked so he towel whipped me in the eye (red, swollen, painful, watering, and can barely see everything is blurry). I can't wait to move out this fall and get the hell away from him.

Shaking hands... what's up with that?

Could this social custom be going out of style given that we're all in the middle of a global pandemic and have become hyperaware of all the germs around us?

And not just that, but just how nasty people are? Why would you want to shake hands with them?

People shared their opinions after Redditor alebenchhe asked the online community,

"What social customs do we need to retire?"

I have a paralyzing fear of death. If I could I would live forever. Have you ever seen the movie "Death Becomes Her?" I would give every penny for that potion. And I wouldn't be all crazy like them.

Live well forever and be happy? It's possible. Even though life is nuts and scary, you're still here. What if there is nothing after the final breath? I don't want to just not exist, while everybody else just gets to keep on dancing.

In my hopes I see a Heaven with ice cream and vodka. So I'm going to hold onto that until eternal life is an option. Let's hear from the gallery...

Redditor u/St3fan34 wanted to discuss life after life, by asking:

What do you think really happens after death?
