When I was a child, my dream was to be an actor. Years later, I went to college for theatre, and discovered that I lowkey hated everything about it. Maybe I just became jaded after a while, but it goes to show that our passions when we're little don't always line up with who we are as adults. I'm not alone in this- here are stories from others who experienced something similar.

u/saladforksaredumb asked: What was your dream job when you were five?


Garbage men are the true heroes.

I wanted to become a garbage man since they only picked up our trash once a week and I thought they had the rest of the week off.

Zino-Rino

I also wanted to be a garbage man, but only because I wanted to ride on the back of the truck.

kkretz17

Mood.

Giphy

I wanted to be a firetruck.

ChunderForce

I'm confused by the number of people who are answering with inanimate objects.

saladforksaredumb

That's true.

I wanted to be a veterinarian but I didn't understand the sad parts of that job yet.

deucetreblequinn

Veterinarian suicide rate is pretty high...

carbonhomunculus

Good advice.

I wanted to be a tractor.

MadcapRecap

Never give up on your dreams.

I_WILL_SEX_UR_FACE

They're not wrong.

Giphy

Architect. I thought I'd be allowed to both design the buildings and drive the bulldozer.

Pops_Sickle

When I was 5 some entertainer tried to drag me on stage to dance at some show at a theme park. But I had the perfect out. I wanted to be an architect and told the entertainer quite confidently that "architects don't dance".

WePwnTheSky

That's thoughtful.

Apparently when I was about five I told my Mum I wanted to be a Doctor so I could "do her hip replacement when she got older".

R1otous

I wanted to be a doctor as well, but it was because I thought it was the only way I'd get to see some boobies. I was mischievous 5 year old.

LexB777

Same.

I wanted to be a food critic. Funny because I was a picky eater, but I loved food.

grayghostie

"These brussel sprouts are BULLSH*T! And the pork chops are DRY and FLAVORLESS!"

"Where's the god. damn. APPLESAUCE, Mom?"

FoxyPhil88

That counts!

Giphy

I wanted to be a stand up comedian, it never happened but sometimes people on Reddit upvote my jokes.

TannedCroissant

When I told my parents I wanted to be a comedian they laughed at me, but nobody is laughing now.

elfballs

Why not both?

I'm pretty sure I wanted to be a truck driver or a horse. Both options were very disappointing to my parents. Inadvertently I had subsequently set a solid standard and have continued to be very disappointing for the rest of my life.

Snoweyedeer

The horse industry is very competitive. But if you go to college and work hard, the skies the limit. I suggest some extracurricular activities such as racing and rodeos. Keep your head on straight and you'll be a horse in no time

I_WILL_SEX_UR_FACE

I'm sure a lot of people want the same.

I wanted to become a Jedi and learn to use the force.

SaggyHUGGIES321

When I was 6 I asked for a real lightsaber for Christmas because I just assumed big bearded would figure it out.

The two toy ones I got were pretty neat though.

It seems that it's far more common to hear somebody complain about their job than to hear them give a glowing review of their line of work.

How many times have you stubbed your toe because you weren't paying attention and banged it against some furniture? Hurts like hell, doesn't it? Have you ever slipped outside because you didn't realize the rain––or ice––on the roads would be so slick? You probably have (and hopefully you didn't bang yourself up too much). You probably hope no one was looking... to save yourself from certain embarrassment.

Believe it or not, there are people out there who've fared worse.

People were all too willing to share their experiences after Redditor 7937397 asked the online community,

"What is the stupidest injury you've ever gotten?"

Why are you mad? It's unhealthy. Do we even comprehend why we're miffed half the time? I don't, I've lost track. Although, I do get angry at the drop of a hat. So each origin can be arduous to track.

There really is no exact explanation as to why tempers can be set off. Of course, we are in sensitive times and emotions are are always at an edge, so that doesn't help.

But we really need to do some serious examining into what sets us off so easily. Anger is not an emotion that is sustainable or often has to do with logic. But let's try to find some...

Redditor u/KingOfJuiceBoxes wanted to discuss the times we've all been surprised by anger of others by asking:

What is the stupidest reason someone got mad at you?
