If you are a seasoned dater then you probably have a few Exes, and some might not be so nice. People share their worst exes and what made them so memorable.

u/ysquaredwhynot asks:

What's your ex from hell story?

Not the brightest man

Giphy

My ex bought a new phone and lost all his numbers. Asked me to text him so he can save my number again. As him and I drive home I text him "hey sexy, what's up?" and he responds "hey can't talk right now. I'll text you back in 5."

I figure he's f****** with me and forget about it. As soon as we get home he goes to the bathroom. A moment later my phone lights up:

Ex: "so hey. What's up?" Me: "uhm... not much, you?" Ex: "super horny. Wanna meet up tonight?" Me: "why not right now? Horny too." Ex: "ok will try to make it ASAP. Cool?" Me: "yeah"

A moment later he comes out of the bathroom for the following conversation:

Ex: "I'm actually just gonna head home I think. Don't feel too good. Is that ok?"

Me: "uhm ok..."

Ex: "oh but can you text me real quick so I have your number?"

Me: "sure...."

I send him a text while we stand in the same room: "Hi."

Him: "f***."

I forgot what exactly happened afterwards but I vaguely remember removing him forcefully from my apartment...

A real keeper, that one.

The dangerous Ex

Giphy

My ex just got out on bail for running over and beating a girl with a crowbar because she thought she was sleeping with her man. The girl she beat is now in a vegetative state. Thank god I got out of that one early.

When she just wanted money

Giphy

After we broke up she called to tell me she was pregnant and needed $600 for an abortion. I did the math and it was impossible I was the father. I told her I wanted to keep the baby and that I'd be happy to take it and she could even terminate her parental rights and not have to pay child support. I would be a single dad. A week later she "miscarried".

The jealous type?

Giphy

So jealous and controlling he sent me hundreds of text messages calling me a slut and c**..t one night. When I blocked him, he sent screenshots to my old phone too of the same messages.

Why you ask?

Because I offered an elderly disabled man my seat on the train. A man of about 70, on crutches, who could barely stand. And apparently this made it was clear I wanted him, and that made me a slut.

Hopefully he's now getting the help he needs. Psycho.

When she makes you run a triathlon

Giphy

She asked me to do a triathlon her brother was doing and she was going to watch his son. I have never done one before but she told me she really thought it would be good for me and would be proud of me if i did it. So I did. It was a whole weekend camping trip. It rained the whole time.... we got there on Friday, I unpacked set up, cooked, cleaned and did everything the whole trip. Her brother apparently forgot to register so it was just me doing the triathlon then, which was on Sunday. Woke up at 5am, jumped in the coldest water I have ever been in to start but finished it (it was a mini triathlon so like swim half a mile, 13 mile bike ride and a 5k run but still that's a lot for me). Anyway, ended went back to camp. She made me pack everything up, then told me if I could put the tent in the original cardboard box it was in, not just the bag it was in. When I said she was welcome to do it herself she told me her ex had no issue doing it (mind you I'm exhausted from you know the god damn triathlon and she just watched me pack up everything alone). I put it in the box but ripped it halfway down. Didn't give a shit. Drove the 3 hours home and she broke up with me on the car ride home because "she just didn't see any potential in me anymore". So yea good times.

The abusive leech

Giphy

My ex was jobless and lost his apartment so I let him stay with me temporarily to help him get back on his feet. I was a full time student, full time intern, and I was working part time as well. Turns out, he got a job, spent all his free time drinking his paycheck away, and I found cocaine in my apartment. I confronted him, and he finally showed d his true colors and became physically abusive (in retrospect, there were plenty of signs and he was pretty psychologically abusive before that). I was scared of what he would do, and I had pets also, so I decided to take him on a trip to his hometown. I woke up at 5am, snuck out of the hotel, room his key to my apartment, and left. That day, I moved all of his stuff into a storage unit and blocked his number. I heard from one of his ex coworkers that he ended up being arrested a couple months later for a couple felonies (fraud and identity theft.) haven't heard from that asshole since and am in the healthiest relationship of my life thank god.

Suddenly...

Giphy

Literally just happened an hour ago. My boyfriend says he's going to get a pizza, comes home four hours later and tells me he slept with another woman. I've been helping his raise his son and have gotten very close to his family. My parents died when I was young and this is he first family I've had. and now I'm losing who I thought I would marry, his family, and have to move out. He never had the normal red flags. Devil in sheep's clothing.

Not an animal lover

Giphy

She tried to kill my dogs recently.

Cops refused to do anything since she didnt try anything against MY life.

They changed their tune when i informed them if I saw her within 2 miles of my house again i would shoot her.

I now have a temp restraining order that lasts for the next 30 days until a judge signs on a new one.

People Explain Which Lessons Aren't Taught In History Class But Should Be

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

"What’s something random you miss about pre-COVID times?"

What do you believe?

Is there a GOD in the sky?

Is he guiding us and helping us?

Life is really hard. Why is that is a big entity is up there loving us?

Atheists have taken a lot of heat for what feels like shunning GOD.

What if they've been right all along?

Maybe let's take a listen and see what they really think.

Redditor __Jacob______ wanted to hear from the people who don't really believe all that "God" stuff. They asked:

"Atheists, what do you believe in?"

The list of what irritates me is endless.

I mean... breathing too loud or dust can set me off.

I'm a bit unstable, yes.

But I'm not alone.

So let's discuss.

Redditor Aburntbagel6 wanted to hear about all the times many of us just couldn't control our disdain. They asked:

"What never fails to piss you off?"
