Everyone on the planet has different talents that make them shine. However, nobody is good at absolutely everything. In fact, there are things that certain people just aren't cut out for. Here are some examples from people all around the world, courtesy of Reddit.

u/Iknowthedoctorsname asked: What are you just absolutely not cut out for?



Same.

Mornings. I have worked "day" jobs for almost 30 years (including the military). I fight every day to get out of bed at a realistic time to get to work. And it doesn't matter how much sleep I get. I can get 12 hours of sleep and when 6:30 AM comes around, I am not rested and don't want to get out of bed. Fortunately I have always worked jobs that required me to have a flexible schedule, and there for I get some flexibility in return....

Not interested.

Sales. More specifically, cold calls. I just can't. My level of empathy for "No thanks, not interested" is like 860%.

"Cool, cool, cool. I'm not interested either. Cool. Sorry to waste your time." -- also me

mixterrific

You need your sleep.

Not getting 7-8 hours of sleep. People brag about getting 4 hrs or whatever and feeling fine, but I just feel like sh*t and start making tons of mistakes working.

On the plus side, I can stay up/work for long periods of time no issue assuming I did get my sleep.

Singing is scary.

Singing, I'd love to have a good singing voice but my voice is so f*cking trash it's not even funny.

_LFKrebs_

It sucks when you genuinely enjoy it but should only ever do it alone in your car. I feel that.

redditstolemyshoes

But like how?

Painting.

I managed to somehow get paint on me before opening the can.

It's never too late.

Having a personal conversation with my parents, asking simple questions like "how was your day?" or "why do you look sad? Something happened?" etc. Lately I feel like my relation with both of them are very surface level, and I feel like it's too late to go deeper.

My relationship with my parents is like this too and that's okay. I went through a painful breakup a few months ago, my mom didn't ask about it or let me know that she heard about it, and we haven't talked about it even once. But once when she thought I was asleep I heard her telling my sister to be kind to me because I was having a hard time. She cooked my favorite foods every day when I visited and spent so much time with me doing things I know she doesn't enjoy to make me happy. She prays for me every day.

I love them so much and they love me more than anything and that's what matters. Families are different from one another and that's okay. Your parents may not be the people you have deep conversations with, but if they're anything like mine they'll be there for you no matter what.

Mood.

Continuing a task for more than 15 minutes without disappearing into the alternate universe where my ADD is God.

TheRedditReportShow

For me it's more of a problem of putting off a task until the very last minute. I procrastinate way too much, I mean I'm here aren't I?

-eDgAR-

It can be hard.

Giphy

Navigating without turn-by-turn directions. I have ZERO sense of direction and the US highway system simply doesn't make sense to my brain. I feel like an alien sometimes.

I'd like to think of myself as reasonably intelligent, but I feel like a complete moron when it comes to directions. People will start telling me how to get somewhere and they might as well be speaking Swahili.

BossLackey

That could be bad.

Being under pressure. Burned my hand and almost my whole house when the oil caught on fire and my brain went.."maybe is should put the burning pan in the sink and turn the water on".

12statebriga

Me too! My reactions are horrific! You there is "fight or flight response? There is also "freeze". That's the one I got.

Bacon_Bitz

Bad advice.

Retail. I lack whatever gene it is that allows you to be screamed at and held accountable for sh!t you have less than zero control over.

Coworkers just shrug and say "Don't take it personally." Like "take it personally" is a button you have to press. If someone is in my face calling me an idiot (or worse) because something rung up a different price than they thought it should, "take it personally" is my only setting.

bluesgrrlk8

We all know someone who really cannot figure out even the most basic thing without copious amounts of help. But when you meet someone who is completely and totally past all help, how do you even begin to try to help them get along?

We're all well aware of the weird, horrible, predatory things men do when attracted to women. But what about when women are the culprits?

We've all heard how parenting is a full-time job. So it's not surprising to learn that parents have discovered plenty of quirks and methods to make things just a little bit more efficient during that eternal slog.

Stupid is as stupid does. And it’s pretty obvious when some poor, misinformed, potentially ignorant soul needs to be put in their place. Luckily, there are a lot of witty ways to do just that. We love a good euphemism.

Wanna know the best way to call out stupidity when you see it? Stay tuned.

U/lientubay asked: What's the best euphemism for telling people that they're stupid?

​Get a load of these sick burns. I swear, the people of Reddit are harsh.

Call outs are a universal language.

In Russian we have "intelligent thoughts have always followed him, but he was faster".

Humphr1es

We have something similar in German: "Intelligence is chasing you, but you are faster."

Be your own Easter Bunny.​

You could hide your own Easter eggs.

Bdiz78

The great Harvey Korman had some Alzheimer's @ 2005, and he still went on a talk show. They asked him how he was doing and he said he was OK. "Now I can hide my own Easter eggs." RIP.

Gas-Blaster

That’s cold.​

“At this point, you can only impress me."

Roman_Suicide_Note

This reminds me of something I saw in a show recently. One character said "Would you think less of me if ____." The other character said "I could never think less of you."

Catty_wampus

​I lol’d.

I think I saw this one here previously "You aren't the biggest idiot in the world but you better hope they don't die".

Soalindie

Once told this to my brother, his immediate response was "hey, please don't die".

Srakrn

It takes a very intelligent person to properly call out a dumb person. Weird how that works, huh?​

When the bears are smarter than the tourists.​

Now I know what Douglas Adams was talking about.

"A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools."

BerenTheBold

As the park rangers in Yellowstone say- making a bear-proof trash can is very difficult due to the considerable overlap between the smartest bears and the dumbest tourists.

Lahmmom

​That’s a gross mental image.

In Greece we say "when it was raining brains, you had an umbrella".

GSavvage

In German we ask God for help. "God, let there be raining brains" this sounds so weird but idk how to express it better lol.

Edit: In German it's "Gott, lass Hirn regnen".

Foxpawdot

It’s probably a bad sign when your lawyer calls you dumb.

Lawyer to client who shared detailed attorney-client privileged strategy memorandum with a whole bunch of people, including an adverse party:

Client: "Is there anything you can do to fix this?"

Attorney: "No, you've pretty much waived the privilege and now they know everything."

Client: "Is there anyway to put a positive spin on this?"

Attorney: "Well, I suppose the judge might buy that this proves that you lack the mental capacity to form specific intent."

Malibulobo

These next ones are just plain cold, but probably very much deserved.​

Meanness from a Canadian is probably well-earned.

Ahh Terry, having you around is like losing three good men.

StrykerSeven

Oof, that’s harsh.

He's so far behind he thinks he's first.

Perstn

I had a keychain as a kid that said, "She who laughs last thinks slowest.”

KatieSedai

Those are some gross socks.

Once heard someone say "Well he's about as sharp as a sock full of soup".

Angrypunishment

"Sharp as a marshmallow" was one that went around my friend circle.

Rubywolf27

In the words of the great prophets Smash Mouth, “I ain’t the sharpest tool in the shed”. That self-burn is perhaps one of the most classic euphemisms. And I just almost misspelled “euphemism”. So I can definitely relate to that lyric.

A good way to exercise your brain? Keep thinking of creative ways to insult people. Trust me, it works like a charm
