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!

Giphy

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.

westsideHK

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.

You know what?

I genuinely like being an adult. I don't exactly like paying bills (who does, right?) but it's nice to know that I have my independence and that there is no one else impeding on my time. When I was a kid, I was very annoyed with the rituals of life, like going to school and seeing the same terrible people each day. Being out and about in the world, being free of these things, has been a game-changer.

But there are things you're never really prepared for, such as the fact that there's always something to do.

We heard more after Redditor Bootyshortsforcorgis asked the online community,

"Adults of Reddit, what part of being an adult caught you completely off guard because no one talks about it?"

What if? That could happen. You never know. All thoughts that muddle the mind. It is unhealthy to live life in a vacuum of despair and scare but really... you do never know. And anything can happen.

So! How to proceed. First we must figure out are you scared or cautious? And are those messages getting confused? They are important questions.

It's natural to be concerned in life, and it's smart to be ready, but living in fear is no good. For instance, serial killers exist. In fact several are reading this now. That can't stop us from going outside. Can it?

Redditor u/IgnoreAndScroll404 wanted to chat about all the things that leave us shooketh in life, because maybe, you never know. They asked:

What unlikely event are you terrified will happen to you?

Capitalism wants to push its workers to work for ultimate productivity--even if that comes at the expense of other things. A worker's well-being has been placed second to their productivity in America for too long. That time is changing now.

Workers are no longer willing to be completely mowed down for a paycheck. Something's gotta give--and either it's the money or the job. And more people are willing to stand up for themselves.
