There are so many things that have been invented over time that were meant to enlighten and enhance our lives. And many have... the car, the movies, cellphones... snuggies. But many things that have been produced that really just bring down morale and cease any reason to live. I jest, it's not that serious, but it's close. There are just a few things we can all do without and wish we could make disappear.

Redditor StonerCPA wanted everyone to admit... What would you un-invent, if you could?

Pay the piper!

Giphy

Payday loans. Damn predatory pigs.

That's not real work..

Telemarketing

Is unsolicited calls about political candidates considered telemarketing? If not, F whatever that is!!

Caragor

Brilliant!

Un-invent the wheel so I could re-invent it and be famous for the most important invention of all time.

PurpuraHumanum

Just give me gas!!

The stupid impossible to use gas can spouts.

Chip89

Useless!!!

Keurig cups.

The guy that invented them publicly regrets it. Shows how one person can really make an impact.

UsernameNumberThree

A ton of waste in exchange for a modicum of convenience.

Save the animals!

Styrofoam. That stuff is terrible.

Landmines.

Living in Croatia, can confirm. To hell with landmines. When I was a kid, parents took me to the countryside once. Me and my sister were having a walk trough some field when suddenly some older man warns us to stop and get back on track. Turns out the area still wasn't 100% cleared of mines. There's still thousands of them in Croatia from the war.

Education for all....

Giphy

Student loans. There is no way the cost of an education would have spiked as much as it did without them.

Amen!

Giphy

Reality TV.

mcloaded

Gross addiction!

Giphy

Cigarettes.

The five-day work week.

9/80 and 4/10 schedules make so much more sense than the traditional 5/8s. I honestly have no clue why more businesses don't offer their employees custom work schedules. It doesn't cost the company anything and allows employees the luxury of a day off (or even a 3-day weekend) every week or every 2 weeks.

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

After Redditor pnrddt asked the online community, "What small action immediately makes you dislike a stranger?" people shared their observations.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
