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!!!"

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.

Most inventions were made with the idea to bring progress to humanity, not to harm it. However, that is not always how things turn out. A prime -and sad- example of this can be found in the life of Alfred Nobel. Most people know his name as the creator of the Nobel Peace prize without a second thought as to what drove him to make such an award.

The tragic truth is that Alfred Nobel invented dynamite with the intent to help with industrial uses. After seeing the horrendous usage of his invention to kill so many people so easily he lived the rest of his life under the weight of an all-consuming regret. That led him to use his fortune to create an award for those who have done incredible things for humanity and peace.

Our memories are strange things. They can totally play tricks on us and make us believe we experienced something we never did, even if there is mounting evidence against what we recall.

Sometimes several memories become one memory, or else details become lost or embellished; sometimes we are told a story so many times that a false memory of the event starts to form.

But sometimes, something strange really did happen and our memories are actually serving us perfectly.

Scandals and gossip are the bread and butter of small towns, where nothing much really happens, and any small faux pas can turn into a misstep everyone in town will remember for the next decade.

Sometimes, though, truly remarkable things happen in small towns. Whether it's a spectacular crime such as a murder or a politician embezzling town funds, or simply some bizarre event that nobody could explain, it'll definitely end up in the local paper.

There's not much to do in small towns, after all.

"How does someone so sexy be so damn repulsive, babe?" is one of my favorite lyrics from one of my favorite criminally underrated TV shows, Star. It's from the song Ain't About What You Got (a song which was originally for Ariana Grande, so it's got some vocal leaps) - which basically is the soundtrack to this article.
