It's difficult when someone doesn't understand what you want them to understand. It can feel like they're purposefully ignoring you, shunning your orders, or spitting on your wishes. However, sometimes it can all be attributed to the other party simply not having any common sense. We want them to comprehend, but it might just be a blank spot.

...Still annoying, though.


Reddit user, u/BadApple-13, wanted to know what people are sorely lacking when they asked:

What's something you feel should be common sense but, apparently, isn't?

Just Take The "L"

Admitting when you're wrong about something.

Everyone makes mistakes

It can be hard to do sometimes but it really is the best option.

Take Your Shoes Off. Seriously.

Not disrespecting someone's house when you are a guest

Don't believe everything you read on the internet.

Take. All. Your Medicine.

Finish. Your. Antibiotics.

But I feel better already. I'll save the rest for when I get a cold /s

Water. AND Soap.

Wash your hands after using the restroom. As a restaurant employee, I can say im terrified how many customers don't do this.

I'll call out the guys to if they don't wash them, and they just shrug it off. That's why I grab handles with paper towels afterwards too.

You Are No One Else's Responsibility

Never borrow money unless you are certain you can pay it back.

squeeeeenis

And never lend money unless you can afford to give it away.

Just Write It Down

Knowing how much it costs to live each month and how much money you take in. Basically keeping a budget.

It's surprises me how many people don't have a grasp on this.

They Need Rest, Too

Don't bother an employee when they're clearly on break/lunch break/recently off the clock unless it's an emergency.

Eating with a closed mouth..

Maybe you have misophonia like me. Look it up. It indeed makes you wanna die

Check Yo' Finances

If you can't afford it, don't buy it.

kukukele

Most people know this. What most people don't seem to know is that "afford" does not mean "able to come up with the money." It means "able to set aside the money while meeting all other current financial obligations including age-appropriate savings and retirement goals."

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
