People Share Their Biggest 'Screw It, I'm Doing It' Moments

Sometimes we gotta just do what we gotta do. IN life throwing caution to the wind is the only true way to live. Often, it's just like Nike says... "JUST DO IT!" Many therapists will tell you this is one of the best ways to grow and fly.

Redditor /A-Classic-Blunder wanted to know about the moments when everyone decided it was time to do what was necessary by asking..... What was your biggest "Screw it I'm doing this moment?"


"Send"

Giphy

Hitting "send" on an email I wrote my husband's mistress. thenletskeepdancing

She hesitated.

Wasn't sure if a girl I've been chasing for months was giving me signals.

She needed to do something in my city and wanted to stay the night. I said sure but didn't have more than one bed, so to avoid being creepy I offered to sleep on the couch.

She hesitated. I offered to both stay in the bed, and she nodded.

Cue two hours of lying nervously on my side trying not to come off as a predator while trying to make smalltalk


Eventually I realized we had been cuddling for like an hour and had progressively been getting friendlier and touchier, and at this point I'm just trying to weigh the possibilities she's just unreasonably friendly vs. actually into me and doing this while trying to be a conversation partner is slowly melting my dumb brain.

I figure, I've been single long enough. I lifted her chin and kissed her, giving her plenty of time to recoil and pull away or stop me.

She didn't. We've only been together for a bit over 6 months but she makes me happy. My goal is to make her happy.FoolsintheThunder

Harry Forever...

Skipping days during a work conference to go to Disney World and Universal. No way in hell was I getting a free pass to Florida and not going to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

It was worth every second. SnyperPrincess

Sober and hydrated.....

Called my wife and told her I had a drinking problem.

Hard phone call to make I tell you what.

Of course she already knew, most did, but getting it out there verbally was hard. Real hard.

I'd also like to thank Topo Chico bubbly water for satisfying my "need to drink cold bubbly drinks" and "need to be holding a beverage" urges.

Sober and hydrated, 1.5 years. campoanywhere

20/20....

Giphy

A few days ago I had the opportunity to get Lasik. I just had to call out of work. This upset my boss but forget it 4 days later and I'm already 20/20!!! rachel226

Best decision I ever made.

Was going through some domestic violence BS and wasn't allowed to leave the home for months at a time. They tried to choke me to death, yelled at me a lot, etc. I can't remember all of it. My grandmother had died and I'm pretty sure it was the intent to kill me and get my part of the inheritance. The inheritance money finally came in after about six months of this treatment, and while the other person took his half and went on vacation, I took my half and bought a Greyhound ticket and got out of there. Best decision I ever made. TheEggRollCommandsIt

Bought a sailboat.

Bought a sailboat. Quit a decent paying job that I hated. Sail from New York to the Caribbean where I hung out for a year then sold the boat back in Florida and then spent the next five months hiking the Appalachian trail. Went back to work for a year and now I'm currently backpacking through South East Asia for the next 6 months. bigmommashome

Roommates Needed...

Asking my now wife if I could call her back the next night after she called looking for a roommate who had moved out. We had talked for a couple of hours that night. She said yes, I called her back the next night. We've been together now 17 years, and got married two months ago. FloydDangerBarberFloydDangerBarber

Going Solo....

Deciding to go on a solo backpacking trip when i was 18 years old. i'm a worrier and not very good at handling stressful situations, and at the time i was also super introverted. that trip really helped me realize that i'm capable of a lot more than i think. SadLazyDope

PlentyOfFish......

Giphy

A few years ago I met a guy on PlentyOfFish (yeah I know, make fun of me later lol) and we were talking for about a month before he asked me out on a little lunch date.

Went on the date, had a great time and afterwords he asked me if I wanted to go back to his place. Mind you, I was raised very conservatively and also to be essentially scared as hell of guys.

Against all of my better judgment, I agreed and we walked back to his place. We had a good time, watched a little bit of TV, and after a couple of hours he walked me back to the diner, I gave me a kiss on the cheek, and we parted ways.

We were just married on August 31st of this year :) VioletViolence93

People Who Live In Tourist Destinations Divulge What They Wish Tourists Would Stop Doing

When traveling and seeing the world, it is always best to also understand the lay of the land.

That seems to be something we forget.

As tourists, it's suddenly, "All bets are off. I have no manners. And I'm here to burn down the town!"

You know people still live and work there right?

And that a touch of decorum is much appreciated.

So let's see what the locals would like from us while we visit.

Redditor Winterbeers wanted world travelers to listen up to the locals for a minute before you run off to your destination. They asked:

"People who live at tourist destinations, what is it you wish tourists would stop doing when visiting?"

People Explain Which Jobs Have Become Woefully Over-Romanticized

Movies make so many jobs look cool to a point where we're like... "I want to do that!"

But in the end it's some of the most tedious, boring stuff we could do and then of course the danger factor always looks sexy until... you're in danger.

Being frivolous with our lives is romantic on paper, but makes you cry in reality.

And most of the time, the jobs don't pay.

That would be nice to know sooner.

People Divulge Which Questions They'd Like To Ask Trans People Without Judgment

Humans are naturally curious creatures - it's a primate thing.

As kids, we tend to explore those curiosities and ask whatever random question popped into our heads. As adults, we learn that some stuff just isn't our business. Some questions are intrusive or uncomfortable.

We don't necessarily "mature" beyond ever having an inappropriate or intrusive curious thought. We are just mature enough to know we aren't entitled to those answers, and that it's unfair to make someone uncomfortable by asking those questions.

But then there's Reddit...

The day Joe Biden won the 2020 Presidential Election, people literally took to the streets to celebrate, giving an idea that people weren't so sad to see his predecessor leave office.

Indeed, many think so ill of the 45th President of the United States, that people have a hard time even saying or writing his name.

Throughout his tumultuous, often headline-making four years in office, he was frequently referred to as the "worst President of all time."

But was he?

Redditor Unaball3r was curious to hear who the Reddit community considered the all time worst leader of the free world, leading them to ask:

"Who was actually the worst President in US History and why?"
