Evil is alive and well. That is just a fact of life. As much as we love to tell children about the beauty of the world -and Lord knows we could use some of that belief ourselves- we simply cannot deny the darkness of humanity. No, we mustn't let that knowledge paralyze us with fear or prevent us from trusting others and living our best lives, but we can stay vigilant. More times than not, the cruelest of the cruel are those we know. And they leave an impression.Redditor u/snow__boy_ wanted everyone to divulge about certain people we've crossed paths with that left a reason to sage and smudge our lives by asking..... [Serious] Who's the worst human being you've ever met?
Kicker....Kick Groin GIF by Idiocracy Giphy
I came here to write about the kid who kicked me in my penis in grade 1 so hard I had to miss school.
I worked with children with special needs, particularly those who were psychologically traumatized by past experiences. As you'd expect, a lot of these kids could be really volatile and prone to long, violent outbursts if something triggered them. Everyone on the team had their own schedule given to us by the co-ordinator.
There was once a woman on the team who hated some of the structured therapy she was specifically trained for and had a strong dislike of some of the children.
On several occasions, to avoid leading therapy sessions or working with kids she didn't like, she'd deliberately trigger a child shortly before the session so she had the excuse that she had to stay with that child and "handle" the incident (which would sometimes then turn into a whole-day episode when it could have been de-escalated quickly if it was handled properly) rather than go do what she was supposed to be doing.
Literally messing with the heads of already traumatized children because she couldn't be bothered to run her therapy sessions.
Met a couple in a restaurant once during a meet and mingle event. When they learned about my country of origin, they shared that they had once run over some people at a pedestrian crossing while stationed there in the military during a drunk driving spree.
Apparently one of the people run over died but the Army was able to fly them back stateside before the investigation got started.
They were inordinately proud at how they escaped prosecution and how much they had achieved in life since then. I didn't feel a need to further deepen our acquaintance after that.
Used to work at a place where we took care of mentally and physically disabled people. Had a coworker that would trigger the patients and then steal anything she could during the commotion.
She triggered one of the bigger clients, who tossed her to a wall, she suffered from back pains and broken bones.
CCTV showed her abusing and berating the client and threatening him with a fork.

My brother, he's currently in jail for running a meth lab, possession of an illegal firearm, distribution, kidnapping, assault with a deadly weapon, and evading the police. That's just the crimes that they knew about and not a tenth of what my family suspects that he's guilty of.
All the people at my old job. Long story short, I reported child abuse going (victims were one years old) on in the preschool I worked at, got talked into resigning by the CEO and defamed by bosses and got really bad references which made it hard to find a job. I hope they all die.
Also, the 6 other teachers they questioned lied to cps. At least 10 teachers at the school (excluding me) know about the two teachers I reported. I think they questioned 6 others besides me. Most of them were covering up for their friend and the others were scared b!tches.
If one other teacher had said something, justice may have been served.
My ex literally made a job of taking advantage of kind and naive women so that he never had to actually work more than a week in his life. He always finds girls and manipulates them into paying for his food, gas, cigarettes, a place to stay, and whatever his heart desires. His ex directly before me had just turned eighteen.
I was probably his oldest girlfriend, but he was also my first serious relationship.
He also would take full advantage of any friends. Anytime anyone would show him any sort of kindness, he'd milk it into getting whatever he wanted out of them while simultaneously talking sh!t about them behind their back.
My cousin! He stole medications from my grandmother while mistreating her, is a super racist, a super sexist, tweaker dude.
I mean I feel like there's something wrong in someone's heart when they're able to do one of those things that leads them to do the others.
Like once you're able to look at someone of another race or gender and go "that person isn't human to me," or if you're able to beat another human being its not like you have much in the way of conscience keeping you from doing literally whatever u want.
For the Cash
I knew a guy who ran over his own son (2yo, I think), and got $70,000 in life insurance for it. He always told the story like it was a win-win; "one less kid to deal with, and a lot of free money." He got fired for drugs, and nobody missed him.
I have no Bunny....wo glenn close GIF Giphy
My stalker. She is a full grown woman who I've only met a handful of times, but she tells everyone who will listen (some of which happen to be our mutual friends) that her and I are close and best buddies and all that.
At the beginning of this summer it started to escalate to the point where I considered getting a restraining order, and I rounded up three witnesses who could confirm they had heard her say wacko things. One example of the things she would say is one time, while she was AT WORK, she admitted to someone that she has followed me home before if she "accidentally" met up with my car in town. I only know this because the person she told is the friend of my best friend's boyfriend, and I've met him. There are so many other things I could say about her. I wish she was out of my life.

What's the sign of a great restaurant? Well, the most likely to know are the professionals. Reddit user ballinlikemyname wanted to know how the rest of us home cooks should select our next dinner date location.
"Chefs, what do you look for when you select a restaurant to dine at?
Not only did people share their red flags, but also how they know a restaurant is going to be good.
Here's some helpful hints from professional chefs and food industry workers to help you pick your next meal.
Go to places you could never recreate the menu.
"My dad was a professional chef his entire life. As a kid if we went out to eat, he would never want to go somewhere he could do himself. IE steakhouses, pub food, seafood, etc."
"He would want to go somewhere that would be difficult for him to cook authentically, so we frequented a lot of ethnic restaurants."
"This also was vice-versa. He cooked me Thai food once or twice at home but didn't like doing it because he knew he'd never be able to accurately recreate it like a Thai restaurant."
"This is why Olive Garden is such a sh!tty casual restaurant. I'm no chef but I can make pasta better than they make there for next to free with my eyes closed."
"My mac N Cheese also blows the pants off of any I've ever had ever."
"My favorite go-to place is this local Irish breakfast place. I don't have time or energy to make fresh hollandaise sauce, poached eggs, or corn beef hash at 8am."
Cleanliness was a reoccurring theme in the answers to this question.
Never thought to look there.
"Number 1 red flag is the spouts on the soda fountain. Those things are one of the easiest things to clean in the entire place, so if they're mildewy that kills my interest in eating there. I'm fine with a bit of mess elsewhere, especially in a high volume place since it will get messy over the course of the day. But those spouts take multiple days of no washing to get to a point where they are noticeably disgusting."
"As a former chef, cleanliness and appearance of staff. If any one thing visible to the public that would be easy to clean is dirty, chances are the kitchen is dirty. The appearance of the dishes and utensils as well. There is a specific way that the dishes should look and even smell if they have been cleaned properly. When the machine is not being run correctly, the dishes will have a specific stale water smell to them and there will be a coating on them. The more basic and streamlined the menu, the more likely your food will be fresh due to frequent replenishment. Washrooms are an indiction of cleanliness as well."
This was surprising.
"When I was food service manager at a large company I asked the health inspector where she ate. She said fast food because their cleanliness rules were more stringent than regular restaurants."
"A mom and pop restaurant? Yeah, held to no standards but whatever they choose to set. A multinational fast food chain? You can bet corporate has a book of health rules that each store has to follow."
"But here's the thing, coming from an insider in the fast food business: health inspectors, private health auditors, corporate giving the public the appearance that everything is being cleaned - it's all a sham. I'm a cook and I've been told to cook up rotting meat before. Our line cooler was broken so the manager told us to put everything on ice, which isn't going to keep a pan full of chopped steak cold. Our line freezer also breaks down a lot so sometimes we serve thawing frozen-to-fried product to all our customers as well. Dishes don't get sanitized properly."
"Dumb teenagers don't change their gloves after hand placing raw chicken on the grill. Raw meat gets panic thawed in hot water. Everything is held to lesser standards until it's announced that the health auditor is making the rounds. At my previous job, a manager dropped food on the floor and still served it because she was afraid of the customer getting mad for having to wait for a new one."
This chef has a check list.
"Clean. Bathrooms should look & smell clean. Run my fingers under the edge of the table/bar, no gum and no grit. Clean glasses and cutlery (amazing how many places don't do this... Here's looking at you place I went to in Manhattan where the server licked his fingers and tried to rub/scrape dried orange pulp off the lip of my glass and then give it back to me). And if the entrance is dirty then everything is dirty."
"Menu that I feel is manageable at a good quality for the type of restaurant."
"Social media - a few places have ended up on my eat it list because of their instagrams and such. Hell yes I'll check out your cafe if you post pictures of drool worthy croissants. Showing off your meat locker is a good way to make me interested in what I might dismiss as a run-of-the-mill steakhouse."
"Reasonably busy - everywhere has off days/nights, but if a place is never busy there's probably a reason and that reason is likely that it's not a great restaurant."
"Industry friend recommendations. Reputation goes a long way - someone I trust says it's good? I'll check it out."
Keep it simple.
"A restaurant that does just a few things well. I don't need a place that serves burgers AND eggs Benedict AND seafood AND pasta AND meatloaf, etc."
"The problem is there probably isn't enough turnover to get all that stuff out in a timely manner, so some ingredient might be past it."
"I am particularly picky about seafood. The odds that those fried clams are fresh in a diner, for example? Not great. They've either been sitting there for a while or are frozen."
Avoid the mayo based salads.
"I was a chef. I've since moved on from the industry, but I'll eat anywhere. Clean or dirty, busy or slow, working in the kitchen took a lot of those judgements out of my head. It might be great, it might be terrible, but you never know unless you try. Some of the best food I've ever had has come from places you'd least expect."
"So I'd pick whatever is close and I haven't tried yet."
"Oh, and avoid mayo based salads. They have low turnover. That applies to everywhere no matter how fancy."
The menu can tell you a lot about the quality of the food.
"A menu thats max 2 sides - places with long book like menus are guaranteed to be using frozen/microwave stuff."
"Unless those are 25 combinations made with 5 different meats and 5 different sauces (typical of some Asian restaurants)."
Sometimes a line is a good sign.
"I think the answer is pretty well known: open so late it's early, full of other chefs because that's the place they've always congregated."
Check with the server.
"If you ask the server what they recommend, and they're hesitant, you may as well just get up and leave."
"They know what's fresh/good and not. They know if nothing is."
Big takeaways include short menus, long lines, try something new, keep it simple, but above all else: make sure the place is clean.

Fast food work allows you to come into close contact with a lot of people. Sometimes you see the secrets of the trade as you go. My first job was at a McDonald's more years ago than I'd like to think about. Our biggest secret was that the 15-minute timers for the hamburgers to be fresh were constantly reset.
Management put heavy pressure on us to reduce food waste and our supervisor would get peeved if we actually followed food safety and threw the old meat out. It's not all, but many locations that follow the same.
Redditor Yung_Mulann365 asked:
“Employees of Mcdonalds, what secrets did you discover while working there?"
The internet was full of weirdly relatable answers.
FOUR pounds of sugar!?Animated GIFGiphy
“Former employee here. I found out that, when making 5 gallons of sweet tea, an entire 4-pound bag of sugar goes in. Sandwiches with round egg use real, cracked eggs. Folded and scrambled come from packaged goods in the freezer or fridge."
“I also had a manager that insisted more people purchase Filet O Fish when it's raining out because they subconsciously associate the watery weather with fish. Anyway, he did some research by poring through sales of Filet O Fish for months and months and comparing it to weather data for each day."
"Turns out he found something like a 3% increase on rainy days and was very pleased with himself."
"Edit: Wow, I will answer some of your questions up here so people can see. The manager voiced his theory one day, and the crews all argued with him about it. This went on for a while."
"He was committed to proving us wrong, so he secretly pulled the sales numbers at work and did the rest on his own time, never breathing a word until he brought his printed report in to shut us all up. He did separate Fridays during Lent and compared those days to each other in anticipation of having holes poked in his research."
"We still did that anyway, of course. As pointless and imperfect as the research was, it was impressive to see his commitment to giving us the middle finger!"~ AmbivalentWaffle
“Not really a secret? More of a story. One time someone replaced the chocolate syrup in the shake machine with barbecue sauce on accident because the bottles are similar. They're labelled differently but it still happened.”
“We found out because a few people complained that the chocolate shakes were sour. We remade them for a couple people and they moved on but one lady just wouldn't let it go. My manager tasted the shake and was like wtf then looked and we saw the culprit.”
“Had to clean the line after that so we didn't have chocolate shakes for a minute.”~what-why-ok
“premature splatulation...”season 3 no GIF by PortlandiaGiphy
“Sauces for sandwiches have the craziest dispensers. Ketchup and mustard are in these really rudimentary plastic funnel things that have a paddle in the handle, when you squeeze it gravity pushes just the right amount of sauce through holes. Doesn't seem like it'd work well but it does if you apply the proper amount of jigglin."
“The Mac sauce, mayo, and tartar though, they're in basically caulk tubes that get loaded into basically caulk guns. You pull the trigger on the handle and a reeeeaally satisfying ratchety clanking delivers a powerfully saucy surprise for the awaiting buns."
"Problem is, it takes a bit of finesse because if you hit that trigger too hard you'll blow the bun and the wad of creme right through the condiment station and onto the wall 8 feet away. No joke, the first couple tarter splurts of a fresh tube came out so hot I'd fire a shot or two in the trash to avoid premature splatulation during the lunch rush."
"The first salvo, properly elevated and adjusted for wind, could clear the whole kitchen and take out the McInfantry on the cash register...If you're ever anywhere near a McDonald's when a sauce gun begins to fall, you have (doing math - https://www.omnicalculator.com/physics/free-fall?c=USD&v=g:32.17405!fps2!l,v_0:0!ftps,h:4!ft ) exactly 0.4986 seconds to make peace with your God before Tartarmageddon."~thomsomc
Ok, but who else has a mom that still does this?
“A couple of Mormon missionary guys came in one time and ordered their food, and also ordered French fries with NO SALT. So the fries had to be fried specially, with no salt. They told me it was their tactic to get HOT FRIES.”~TakeMetoLallybrock
“the parking lot is basically a meet-up...”
“Depending on which one you work at, the parking lot is basically a meet-up for druggies/drug dealers and (at least where I was in New Mexico) people to meet up and have sex in their cars. As long as they kept their business to the middle of the night and didn't cause any serious problems, we were told not to call the cops or make a fuss, mostly because they'd come in and buy food after their shenanigans."
“Soda and mini pies were really popular with addicts. What I later found out is that management was actually told to let it slide by corporate, since everyone higher up was aware of how much money the "night crowd" brought in. I got to see many, many drug deals. I'm convinced I saw at least one arms deal, but I of course have no way of verifying that."~Weird-Church-Noises
“There is a glitch with the McDonalds app. There is a 'deals' section and it usually has a coupon for a free cookie or free apple pie with any order. Add it to your order and you get the free cookie.”
“Then, the next time you order from the app, just reorder your last meal (you can add/subtract whatever you want) but the free cookie will still be there. The glitch is that you can add another free cookie from the deals section, and now you have two free cookies.”
“Evidently there is no cap to this. I now get 5 free cookies with each order. (I stopped at 5 because I felt that any more than that would be overkill)”~neilly777
But why do they turn bright pink if you use water that’s too hot?
“Dehydrated onions, you put them in a metal thing and just add water. The thing is they still taste great! But I was shocked and happy that I didn't have to go cut onions.”~HawkTheHawker
“Mismanagement is suprisingly common...”
“All drinks come in as a syrup and are carbonated on the spot, hence why it can taste flat sometimes. There used to be a way to get a discount code for every second that the timer was running on a coupon, but they patched that in 2017.”
“The ice cream machine at my place usually broke down because people mixed up the milkshake bags with blue caps and the ice cream bags with red caps while filling the machine. Mismanagement is suprisingly common and corporate doesn't give a single sh*t as long as there is sufficient profit coming in.”~Wooshmeister55
Headsets have two buttons...
“My time wasn't bad. We kept it clean, and no one I know ever tampered with the food. But there was a lot of funny things that happened, so I have a lot of stories."
“Example: one day, we had 10 minutes to close. It was myself off at close, the grill closer, the service closer, and the manager. Grill closer had on a head set, as he was praying no one else came in as he was very low on a few things and didn't want to make more right before closing."
“This guy prided himself on having things done and being out the door within 10 minutes of closing (bosses loved him because other closers took up to an hour, and that meant paying them for up to an hour)."
"One thing to know: our headsets had two buttons."
"One talked to the other headset only, the other talked to the outside speaker. He had been playing a game where he was trying to make the service worker laugh while she was taking the orders. You probably see where this is going."
"So a driver pulls up to the speaker. He orders a 20 piece nugget. Closer is pissed, and pushed the "talk to other headset" button and goes "man, f*ck that stupid f*cking order. F*ck!"
"Except, of course, he hit the wrong button. Needless to say, someone got a free 20 piece, and another free meal in the future, and grill members were banned from wearing headsets for a while after that."~redpurplegreen22
Despite opinions, fast-food workers work hard and deal with a lot. Remember to show kindness to those working with the public.

If you've lost someone close to you, you understand rethinking and remembering everything that person said to you. When my dad died, one of the last things he said to me was “be an artist". Those words became so important to me that I had them tattooed on my body. It goes to show that final words can make a huge impact.
You never forget the last thing someone says to you before they pass away. Here are a few instances of this, straight from the people of Reddit.
When you realize that your loved one is close to the end, their final words can be truly poignant and heartbreaking.
"Bye [my name]."
"It was my big brother, he was in late stage terminal cancer. He passed at home the following night/morning."
She definitely had a wonderful grandson.GIF by In The Heights MovieGiphy
"My grandma told me she loved me and how I saved her life by buying her that cordless phone (90s) because she was just laying on the bathroom floor, but she carried it with her like I told her and was able to call for help."
"She had crocheted a bag for it. She was in the end stages of cancer and I was driving up 4 hours every weekend to stay with her. I'd bought the phone a few weekends before and told her to take it with her. She'd never had a cordless phone so it was a big deal for her. She religiously kept it charged and on her when she got up."
"She told me she'd see me that weekend. She died that night."
"My mother was at the end stage of Leukemia. I called her to see how she was doing. She was pumped full of morphine and close to the end. She told me she loved me and we hung up the phone. My dad called not too long after and said she was near the end and I needed to get on a flight immediately. I caught the next flight out to see her before she passed away."
"My uncle picked me up from the airport and informed me she had died while I was on the plane."
Sometimes, it’s the unexpected last words can be truly haunting.
They were both right.
"You don't have to visit me everyday, I'll leave hospital in two days anyway" My father said. I replied I'd still visit next day as I love him. In the end we both were right, sadly."
"He died 25 hours after that talk. So I visited his dead body next day, and he was transported out of hospital two days after we talked. I think this exchange will stick forever in my mind."
This is why you should always treat people with kindness.homer simpson hug GIFGiphy
"See you tomorrow." My father on the phone. I found him dead in his house the next day. Fell, cracked his head open.
This is the type of sh*t people go through and strangers, don't even realize what a person has endured in life. Treat people right, lots of people have had many traumatic experiences already, or endured a lot of bad events in life.
An unexpected tragedy.
"'Oh it's fine, just a bump to the head. I'll take a painkiller and have a nap. Love you' My mom died of a brain hemorrhage 5 hours later."
Steve sounded like a fun guy.
"A man who helped raise me died about two days after I saw him last."
"Our final interaction was him telling the most embarrassing story about me to my new girlfriend. Thanks Steve."
"It's what he would have wanted to end on."
These things stick with you for a very long time after you lose a loved one.
This one is painful.season 1 love GIF by ManifestGiphy
"The last words I had with my late husband before he went in for surgery:"
Me: "Love you"
Him: "Love you more"
Tearing up reading this.
"I''m sorry we didn't talk as much as you wanted...' My grandpa's last words..."
"My grandpa, on the phone."
"I wish we could've met".
"He lived in New Zealand, I live in Australia. I had met him, many times. Tore me up inside that it had been so long since I'd visited him that he'd forgotten me."
Let this be a reminder to keep your loved ones closer, and show gratitude for them every day. Life is unpredictable, and you never know when you'll lose them.
Give them a hug next time you see them, and remember to tell them you love them.
Honestly, we can't have everything as people. We can't have our cake and eat it too. Sometimes, we can't even have the cake, because...well...we suck at baking.
Common skills may not actually be common. It's hard to tell--being a person requires so many various and different skills, especially in the 21st century. Nobody can really cook, clean, do laundry, fold laundry, make phone calls, send emails, go to the gym, etc. without trip-ups here and there. Right?
What's a common skill that you just don't have?
Here were some of the answers.
Make The L Shapes!
"Can't tell left and right without a moment to work it out."
"At 70, I still need to face the imaginary south wall of my first-grade classroom."
"I have a birthmark on the palm of my right hand, never bothered memorizing which side is which, i just check my hands."
Some Of Us Are Never Blessed With This Skill
"Penmanship. My handwriting hasn't improved since 4th grade."
"I had a fifth grade teacher tell me my cursive had gotten worse compared to the prior year. And he was totally right. But it was fifth grade, we were never going to see each other again, and I was a good student and we got along well so he just gave me A's on it."
"Then besides my signature I've never used cursive anyway. I can type like lightning but my handwriting is still sh*tty."
Memories Can Go Like This Though
"Easily remember events in the past few hours. I usually only remember being there. No conversations, no one talking, no eating, nothing. Just being there and a couple of important things that happened."
"My entire memory is like this. It's like my memory is more a collection of post it notes than anything else."
"Some people remember their vacation 5 years ago and all the cool things they saw and heard and did and I'm like 'I know for a fact I've been here. I cannot tell you a single thing that occurred while I was there.'"
With so many common skills in the world, we were bound to miss out on one of them at some point.
"Driving. I grew up poor, so we rarely had a car. I couldn't afford driving lessons. When we did have a car, it was too costly to add me to the insurance."
"I've also been in 2 separate crashes in my life, so I'm not eager to get behind the wheel. Fortunately, I have an electric bike and my city has decent public transit. Maybe I can afford a vehicle and lessons someday. 🤷"
"I'm 32 this month just took my first lesson today it was fun as hell! Same story as you pretty much...family was poor as sh*t and the idea of me working just to pay for my own car seemed awful. "
"I figured I might as well just get it done been putting it off for so long. Tbh if you're used to cycling around a city it doesn't seem as scary."
"I'm only one lesson in but I felt I had a lot of the 'awareness' skills developed from cycling around big city traffic situations. Although I can understand now easy it is to just not see a cyclist from a car."
I Love Mess
"Folding laundry properly."
"I can do an acceptable job, but I'll never achieve the easy perfection my wife casually displays."
"Watch Marie Condo in secret, then shock the heck out of your wife one day."
It May Actually Be Harder Than Rocket Science
"I don't know if it's exactly 'common' per se, but the ability to do that high pitched whistle you hear people do at concerts or sporting events. I've tried, but I just can't manage to make my mouth do it."
"I couldn't whistle until I knocked my teeth out (right before high school). Now I can whistle beautifully but still can't do the loud 'attention getting' whistle. Tried the 'tongue thing' and the 'two fingers.' Can't whistle loud."
Do You Form Words?
"I don't form mental images. Like if you describe something I don't form a picture in my head."
"Same, But as a result I have fantastic abity to repair machines."
"Most people form a visual understanding and can't include non visual info. Like weight, stregnth, vibration etc... i can keep track of all these non visual concepts and they are not drowned out by a simple picture."
The good thing is, we may have picked up some rather uncommon skills to fill in the space in the meanwhile.
Hi Hello Uh Yes
"Leaving a confident voicemail."
"I fumble words, talk in circles and embarrass myself every time."
"Yep. I work a consulting job and talk to people over the phone constantly, but when it comes to leaving a voicemail I just totally lose my mojo."
"What I started doing a few years ago that works well for me is writing down the content of a potential voicemail in a notepad file prior to a call, and then if I get the voice mailbox, I just read it verbatim with a natural inflection."
"I do this in preparation for nearly every call I place, even when I expect the person to pick up."
Oracle Of Seasons
"If it counts, I don't have a signature. I don't need one in the modern world but when it comes to the rare occasion where I need one, I just scribble a vague curly line."
"If that doesn't count, I find it harder than I really should to remember the months and seasons. I was never really taught them at school for some reason, or maybe I was off sick or something."
"I do know them and the order obviously but if you asked me what the 7th month was, I'd have to count through them in order."
"And I have no idea what way round spring and autumn goes and what months they are. I know January is winter and July is summer, any others is just a total guess."
"And don't get me started on how many days are in each month. I've got no idea. February is 28 and December has 31 and that's all I know."
Not-So Successful Saving
"Understanding how to make money earn money. I live paycheck to paycheck and i can never ever seem to get ahead."
"Everytime i save a little bit, suddenly it's time for new wiper blades, or new brakes or new shoes or it's winter and I'm adding salt to my grocery list every week."
"Building a budget is nigh impossible."
We can all take comfort, if we see ourselves on this list, that we are not alone in our struggles.
We will ride the struggle bus together, and maybe, just maybe, we can find another struggle bus and have a skill exchange. That's called quid pro quo.
