People Explain Which Things They Wish Would F*** Off

Some things need to be banished from this planet – like fruitflies.

Seriously, what is their general purpose in life other than to annoy us?


Where do they even come from? One summer, I thought I got rid of them after reading online you can have a glass of vinegar or red wine and cover the top with saran wrap that has holes poked in it to trap the small flies once they are lured in by the sharp aroma.

It worked. However, a few mornings later, there was a new legion of fruitflies buzzing around my bananas. Damn them! They can just f'k right off!

Reddit WolfBearPup wanted to know what things in life people wanted out of their lives by asking:

"What can just f*** right off?"

Insects

How can something so small be annoying AF? Because when there's a swarm of them, it's an absolute nightmare.

Crawlies

"Ticks and all of the diseases they carry."

MoreMen_Pukes

"Limes can F'K RIGHT OFF"

WolfBearPup

They Come Out At Night

"Cockroaches + their flying cousin."

fggfgfggffggf

"I was on a bar once and a cockroach flow into MY NECK!!!! Urgh. Oh god. F'k it right off."

WolfBearPup

Blood Suckers

"Mosquitoes."

Snoo79382

"Mosquitoes I can handle. They are awful, and I will scratch myself till I bleed. But ticks... they pretty much make me want to rip off and burn all my clothing then scald myself in the shower. I hate them, so, so much. My grandparents had them on their property, my grandma's dog took off into the bushes once then came back and my grandmother said she could just see her fur writhing with ticks."

My grandma would sit on the floor with the dog until she picked them all off. I know she pulled 137 out of the dog's hair in one session once. They'd also fall off the dog and scurry off into the house waiting to find you. F'k them, f'k ticks and their lyme disease and general creepiness."

Winged Nuissance

"Ugh and flies. They're too f'king dumb. Always flying in circles and going back and forth, always missing the door/window opening to get out. Just choose where you wanna go, and go there!!!"

Behavior

Some people just really rub us the wrong way.

Irresponsible Shoppers

"People that don't return their shopping carts to the corral. We live in a society."

LothlorienPostOffice

"I would also add parking lots that don't have enough corrals. Each row needs at least one corral, it is a nightmare getting a cart between cars."

Don't Kill The Messenger

"Retail worker here. For me it's people who get aggressive when they think the price of something is too high. What am I gonna do about it? Seriously?"

vegewis

Entitled Smokers

"I'm ready to yeet the people who try to argue over the price of cigarettes. I don't make the prices, I have to abide by them. The gas station I worked at in 2018/2019 was a block down from the county line. The other county has a huge city and that county has high cigarette and alcohol taxes. Newports were just under $10 when I left. The other county was $12.73 the last I heard from customers. I had people flip and demand Newports for $5-6 per pack and let the drawer be short. I told them either pay the price or go to the Speedway up the street."

BunnehMoe

Invisible Annoyance

You can't see them, but you know they're there.

Mental Health

"Depression, anxiety, and all other mental health disorders in general."

ShadowAssassinVI

"They can feel so heavy and so incredibly hard to f'k off. You tell them to f'k off and they just don't f'k off. So yeah. They can f'k RIGHT off."

WolfBearPup

Migraines

"A headache that's starting to build."

iwanttoleaveplanet

"I've replied to hundreds of comments and f*cked a lot of things off, but I think I finally need to sleep. If I didn't get to you I'm sorry! I hope some kind souls f"k some sh*t right off for you!!! I'm completely knackered."

"Whatever is troubling you can f'k right off!!!"

WolfBearPup

The Viral Pathogen

"[The virus]"

WinterCrusader91

"Please. Please let it f'k right off."

These Have Overstayed Their Welcome – Yet Were Never Welcomed

"Cancer. Parkinsons. Alzheimers."

UnfinishedThings

"I'm terrified of Alzheimers after watching my grandma develop it. Yeah. It can absolutely f'k off."

WolfBearPup

It's pretty evident there are a lot of things that should rightfully be wiped from existence.

But based on the personal experiences shared on this subReddit, the biggest offenders were not pesky pests that can be exterminated.

Mankind's real enemies were of the microscopic variety – including the virus responsible for the pandemic and a number of diseases like cancer that can't just be swatted away.

They can most certainly f'k off for good. It's just time.

People Explain Which Scientific Achievements They'd Like To See Before They Die

Advancements in science happen every day in every way.

But often it feels like we are still so far behind.

How have we not cured so many diseases?

Shouldn't we know more about space?

What is Jello really made of?

So much to ponder and understand.

Maybe one day.

We all have a bucket list of what we'd like to see cured or invented before our last breaths.

Let's discuss...

Redditor yoda2060wanted to discuss all the science that needs to be devoured before the sand runs out of the hourglass. They asked:

"What scientific achievement you would like to see before you die?"

Fast fashion is terrible for the environment, one of the largest polluters of clean water globally because of its all too common use of cheap, toxic textile dyes.

It also places producers under more and more pressure to manufacture more and more clothes on masse–the people working in the factories that make this stuff are being paid a pittance, contributing to much of the wealth inequality in less developed nations.

Additionally, it's estimated that the textiles industry produces 1.2 billion tonnes of CO2 per year and that just two percent of all fast fashion emissions can be reduced through recycling. Ouch. Time to change habits, right?

People shared their thoughts on this and other topics after Redditor urmomsucked asked the online community,

"What should people seriously stop buying?"

If you make too many funny faces, your face will stay that way permanently.

Watch too much tv and your eyes will fall out.

Break a mirror and it's seven years of bad luck.

These are among the many myths and superstitions we heard as children, more often than not from our parents and teachers as a way of scaring us into behaving.

But while there is not one ounce of truth to any of these tall tales, there are many who still believe them, and many more.

Redditor RedditPersonIf was curious to learn what superstitions people continue to believe are true, leading them to ask:

"What myths are obviously false, yet most people still believe they are true?"

Who hasn't looked at a scarf someone knitted for a loved one, a flawless homemade birthday cake, or an immaculately planted garden and thought, "I wish I could do that"?

But you'd never dare try to attempt it yourself, knowing that it's well beyond your personal skill set.

But is it?

Intimidating as they may seem, some skills might be deceptively easier than they appear to be, or might come more naturally to you than to many others.

Redditor halfmoon599 was curious to hear what skills people believed to be much easier than they seem, leading them to ask:

"What skill is actually easier to learn than what other people think?"
