People Divulge The Opinion That Is The Smallest Hill They're Willing To Die On

Not everyone is going to believe what you believe. Our own experiences and values add up to make us who we are. Without them, we'd all be the same amorphous blob of consciousness covering the planet in bland beliefs. You hold something in high regard, and that might mean someone else disagrees with you.

Hold your ground, and be ready to die on that hill, kind of like these people.


Reddit user, realduckbutter, wanted to know what you will never let go of when they asked:

"What’s the smallest hill you’re willing to die on?"

What is it about this hill that makes it worthwhile to fight over? Is it something ingrained in your core or something that you can never let go?

"Shape > Size"

"on that note, 99.9% of of people don’t give a damn about color imperfections or stretch marks. It’s completely irrelevant. The shape is what makes a nice butt."

"Edit: I admit that my statistic it totally made up. I made to say that MOST people don’t care."

The workplace is somewhere you (possibly) go to every day. If there's something about it you like or don't like, don't let it go.

Proper Bathroom Ambience

"Bathrooms at the work place should all be required to play music to help drown out the sounds being made"

"THANK YOU. I’ve thought this for years. Just some simple elevator music. Anything."

"I’d rather hear 10 hours of Yiruma’s River Flows In You than 10 seconds of whatever is flowing out of the poor guy next to me."

Better Be Some Money That Comes With That Title

"Don’t give me a “promotion” unless it comes with a pay raise. The only reason I would want a promotion is because I get paid more, not so I can flex my title on ppl"

"Flex that title into a raise somewhere else"

So Grateful

"All companies regardless of what industry they're in do their best work and are the most consumer friendly when they're in second or third place in their industry. The 'leader' is almost never the best option."

Whatever it is about these hills we're all supposedly dying, you cannot deny the fact it's super fascinating to see bodies dropping on them.

Do Any Of Us Know What We're Eating?

"When people say “it has chemicals in it”. Your mom is chemicals. Everything is chemicals."

nosmase2

"The whole "don't put it in your body if you can't pronounce it" nonsense is infuriating. An apple has things in it most people couldn't pronounce if you wrote out the chemical composition. And does my having taken organic chem and biochem classes mean I can eat things others can't?"

"Don't even get me started on the anti-GMO crap."

Holding Up The Line With Your Niceness

"Pay-it-forward drive-through chains are pointless. They aren’t really helping anyone, they’re just making everything awkward."

lassie86

"Im a starbucks barista and like its a nice thing dont get me wrong, but the way our systems work things get confusing and orders or items get lost so people end up getting free but wrong orders :( it also puts the customer on the spot to make a decision to continue or not and i hate that it's so awkward. I always just say hey your order has been paid for have a great day!"

It's another ordinary day in America.

So of course that means we've already had a mass shooting or two before brunch.

And aside from the mass shootings, the number of single gunshot wounds or deaths is too high to count.

So let's discuss the aftermath.

Let's hear from the people who have faced the barrel of a loaded gun, or were just a casualty going about their day.

What happens after the bullet lands?

***CAUTION - SENSITIVE MATERIAL AHEAD - TRIGGER WARNING***

Redditor notaninterestingacc wanted to hear from the people who have lived the nightmare. They asked:

"Gunshot survivors of Reddit - What does it feel like to get shot?"

It's never attractive to gloat.

Nor does superiority ever come off as a particularly attractive attribute.

But, consciously or not, some people speak or behave in a way that immediately suggests that they think they deserve to be treated differently, i.e better than others.

Or that they believe they simply are better than other people.

A recent Redditor was curious what sort of behavior struck other people as elitist or arrogant behavior by asking:

"What screams "I am entitled"?"

There's something about the woods that creeps me out. Listen here, people: I'm a city guy. The idea of getting lost out there freaks me out. No thank you. I wasn't made for that. The rest of you who like to go camping and stuff? You do you. I'll stick with my running water.

But maybe I've seen too many horror movies. After all, if I saw some creepy stuff in the woods I'd definitely run in the other direction. And so would you, right? Right?

People shared their best stories with us after Redditor shantics asked the online community,

"What have you seen in the woods that you can’t explain?"

We're all not geniuses.

Everybody has varying degrees of knowledge and brain power.

And that is ok.

Though some of us are really lacking in any sense and every once and awhile people like to sugarcoat that fact when they call us out.

"Bless your heart."

That's a big one in the South. Means... "I like you, but Lord are you missing marbles."
