It can be lots of fun to speculate about what the future could hold, and Reddit users had a blast trying to decide what would be in an "Angry Meal" from McDonalds.

Would it just be super spicy food, toys designed to infuriate their user (or their parents), or something else entirely?


Reddit user u/noodle nugget asked:

"McDonald's discontinues the Happy Meal and intruduces the Angry Meal. What kind of food and toys are in it?"

Coupons for the ice cream machine that never works.

-ZombieImp

And when it does, it only serves our new flavor... BLACK LIQUORICE!!!

A McDonalds job application

Salad (just lettuce)

-ami2weird4u

And it's that nasty, limp, brown lettuce they try to sneak into the center of your McChicken that you check for every time but will always be there the moment you neglect to check the next time.

They're exactly the same. It's just the toys now all make noise and can't be turned off.

7.

Just little real life characters

"Shit boss"

"Crazy road rage commuters"

"Angry ex wife"

"Overbearing mother in law"

"Policitican"

The cashier just leans out the drive through window and punches your toddler in the face. Then says "enjoy your knuckle sandwich".

The "toy" is just one of those amusement park photos of your kid getting smoked

-DarkoEnterprises

5.

Hospital bills, parking tickets, -10 french fries, dial-up internet.

Nothing, just absolutely nothing. That's why you're angry. That's why your dad's angry. That's why Karen is angry. You were given a meal box and there was one oil-drenched fry inside. Have fun, angry child.

-despacito-sanders

3.

Ketchup packets that don't open without scissors

-Duck-Yo-Couch

2.

The same toys, just with angry eyebrows put on them with a black marker. Then some of the kids (or parents) will get mad because they're that cheap.

1.

A packet of legos designed so that when you open it they sort of explode everywhere and fall all over the floor. Also the legos are an assortment of colors designed to blend in with most common types of floor and carpet, making them hard to spot once dropped.

Some years ago, I had to advise a college friend to stop chasing the girl he was interested in at the time. She'd already turned him down. Explicitly. At least two or three times.

He wouldn't take no for an answer and didn't see anything wrong with his behavior.

Perhaps he'd seen too many movies where the guy eventually breaks through the girl's defenses and essentially coerces her into going out with him?

Parents make mistakes. We want to believe that parents are doing there very best to raise their kids, but sometimes they do more harm than good.

Research into childhood trauma didn't actually begin until the 1970s, so we don't have as much knowledge about our mental health as adults as we might like.

However, a study that followed 1,420 from 1992 to 2015 found conclusive results about childhood trauma:

"'It is a myth to believe that childhood trauma is a rare experience that only affects few,' the researchers say."
"Rather, their population sample suggests, 'it is a normative experience—it affects the majority of children at some point.'"
"A surprising 60 percent of those in the study were exposed to at least one trauma by age 16. Over 30 percent were exposed to multiple traumatic events."

Not all of the things our parents do that were not so helpful technically classify as trauma, but it definitely has an effect on us as we get older.

On the outside, so many professions and careers look glamorous, financially enticing, and fun.

Often we sit back in our own lives and wallow in our dead-end jobs with that "wish I could do that for a living mentality!"

But if you look a little closer or, much like Dorothy Gale in OZ, just wait for a Toto to push the curtain back, you'll see that a lot more is going on behind the scenes.

And the shenanigans we don't see, make all that fun... evaporate.

So many careers and high power industries are built on a foundation of lies, backstabbing, and stress. And not in that fun "Dynasty" way.

That quiet, dead-end gig may not be so bad after all.

Redditor MethodicallyDeep wanted hear all the tea about certain careers, by asking:

What is a secret in your industry that should be talked about?
