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."

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.

As if being a mom isn't hard enough, why does society want to heap on more stress. Women who can breastfeed need to be able to breastfeed. They need to do it whenever and wherever.

This has been a contentious, dramatic issue for generations. Some people just can't handle a boob out in public. A boob that is nourishing a child, I might add. When you're hungry, you don't want to wait, so why should a mom, make her baby wait until a more "appropriate" time?

God grow up.

Redditor u/Brace4Landing wanted to chat about what women have to do what they do, by asking:

What are your thoughts about women breastfeeding openly in restaurants?

Our society has a lot of strange ideas about masculinity. In fact, we have such a string of contradicting and misleading pieces of information on how a man "should" act that it has created a very emotionally stunted pool of men in the United States.

And it's usually traits that differ from this path of "most masculine" that, ironically, make us appealing to potential mates. When people look for a partner, they usually look for some preliminary signs of who that person is, and these are some of the traits that most stuck out upon first impression.

Have you ever found yourself handing over some hard-earned money while wondering "why am I even paying for this?"

There are some things that absolutely should be "free" - or at least not an extra fee on top of some already-paid money. So let's talk about them.

Generations are sometimes a little confusing. What makes up a generation? Is it their ages or year they were born? Is it what was happening politically during the formative years? Is it the economic landscape that either afforded or denied certain life expectations? Maybe it's the technology that they had access to.

According to the Pew Research Center, it's all of these things and more. All of these factors can influence a generations understanding of the world and ultimately their thoughts as the move through it.

Depending on what generation you're from, you might have seen the drastic shift from records to CDs to Spotify, from payphones and landlines to cellphones.

Marked by technology and pop culture references, the older generations might actually look to Gen Z, the iGen, with pitty for never truly understanding the struggle of walking to school up hill both ways.

What are the struggles of the past that young people today really won't understand unless they were there to experience it? We went to Ask Reddit to find out.
