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"

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."

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!!!"

The Viral Pathogen

"[The virus]"

"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.

Remember the Dreamcast? If you don't, then you've been missing out. Sit down, sweet summer child, and listen up.

The Dreamcast was a console so ahead of its time that console has been a Dreamcast since there was a Dreamcast. Too advanced to match its competitors, not appealing enough to be considered part of the next generation. I have fond memories of that console. Crazy Taxi was a gem.

Not everything comes out at the right time. We heard about a few other examples after Redditor rentinghappiness asked the online community,

"In your opinion, what’s something that flopped because it was way ahead of its time?"

People Share The Most Life-Changing Purchases They've Made That Were Worth Every Penny

Consumers who have money to burn often buy things they don't really need, like travel accessories, specialized sports equipment for an activity they've only done once, or even cookbooks, when plenty of recipes can be found online.

You know, try as I might, I just can't bring myself to bother with The Walking Dead. I quit the show some years ago, probably around the time of that weird fakeout with Glen in the dumpster (and then his actual death right after that), but the truth is that the show was getting on my nerves for some time before that.

Did anyone actually care about all the nonsense going on with Deanna and the citizens of Alexandria? And can we go back a bit further and talk about how ludicrous Beth's death at the hands of some power-tripping officer in a hospital ward was? There was such a noticeable drop in quality after the third season that I questioned why I kept tuning in.

But this show is far from the only one to make people want to throw their remotes at their television screens. People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor regian24 asked the online community,

"What TV show was amazing at first but became unwatchable for you later on?"

People Break Down Which Professions Hollywood Gets Completely Wrong

More often than not, what gets us to keep tuning in to our favorite TV shows, or drawn to certain movies, is to get a glimpse into various professions which fascinate us, but which we wouldn't ever want to work ourselves.

Needless to say, there aren't many people who find the Indiana Jones films to be a remotely accurate depiction of archaeology, or that the Jurassic Park films show what paleontology is really like.

But many people tend to watch iconic procedurals like Grey's Anatomy and Law & Order under the notion that they both give an accurate depiction of the medical field and the legal world.

Only, how accurate are they?

Redditor Just_Surround_2108 was curious to learn which professions have been documented on screen without as much research as one might expect, leading them to ask:

"What profession does Hollywood get completely wrong in films and TV?"
