There are just some situations you'd rather die than get stuck in. Well that's probably a tad on the dramatic side, but not by much. I will say there is nothing worse than being trapped at the DMV... that is a definitive "Take me now Lord" moment. But in the end it is the utter definition of "First World Problems." We have so many of those; situations that arise we think are a tragedy when in fact there are REAL tragedies occurring everyday... murder, famine, politics. But we get caught up in our lives and convince ourselves minor inconveniences are the end of the world. We are pure drama y'all!

Redditor u/NRmusiccringe wanted us all discuss a few fates worse than death by inquiring... Other than waiting in line at the DMV while your phone is dead, what is an example of "first world torture"?



Relinquish your license fool! 

When you leave a safe following distance between you and the car in front of you, but the a**hole waiting to pull out from a side road ignores safety and merges into the too-small gap they perceive as an opening then proceeds to go 5 miles below the speed of traffic in a no passing zone.

Red or Blue?

Talking politics with someone that you really want to get along with, but disagree with on pretty much every level. It's a tightrope you walk where you don't want to give anyone the impression you support this Thing, but at the same time you don't want to disagree with them too strongly, or you might get into an actual argument, and ruin the vibe of the party and man you're a cool guy to hang out with as long as we don't discuss this can't we get back to drinks and a good time?

Or they have some kind of power over you and disagreeing would be a bad idea.

Patience is a virtue...

Getting that ancient (but really friendly and sweet) cashier who scans your items at a rate of 10 per minute, and you just happen to be in a rush.

Stop the Music!! 

Working in retail and listening to the repetitive, really bad music track.

Tuning it out is a special sort of talent I'm glad I've developed.

Where i used to work we only played royalty free stuff. Thank God I've forgotten most of the songs that would haunt me in my dreams, but I will never forget a Christmas song that has the lyric "My sugar daddy Santa Claus." Never again.

As if the gym isn't bad enough...

Going to the gym (because you never have to do any real manual labor) just to find out that it's really crowded, and you can't do the workout you planned on doing.

WAAAIIITTTTT!!!!!

Missing your train narrowly enough that you can physically see it pull away.

Werunos

Or running for the bus and the driver being that a**hole who pulls away when you're literally in front of the door. And it's a weekend which means the next bus doesn't come for 40 minutes and it's raining. That's the hell I hope said a**hole bus drivers end up in.

I'm incomplete...

Netflix not adding every season of a show.

panickyyy

Spotify not having the entire discography of an artist.

Break the silence... 

No headphones while on the train/bus.

VollkiP

No problem, just play your music on your phone's speaker like every other degenerate it seems like.

I need my meows now! 

When you pay for expedited shipping (ex. Amazon Prime) and the item doesn't arrive on time. Now you're stuck waiting for your cat calendar for another day, if you're lucky.

People Explain Which Lessons Aren't Taught In History Class But Should Be

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

What isn’t taught in history class but should be?

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

"What’s something random you miss about pre-COVID times?"

What do you believe?

Is there a GOD in the sky?

Is he guiding us and helping us?

Life is really hard. Why is that is a big entity is up there loving us?

Atheists have taken a lot of heat for what feels like shunning GOD.

What if they've been right all along?

Maybe let's take a listen and see what they really think.

Redditor __Jacob______ wanted to hear from the people who don't really believe all that "God" stuff. They asked:

"Atheists, what do you believe in?"

The list of what irritates me is endless.

I mean... breathing too loud or dust can set me off.

I'm a bit unstable, yes.

But I'm not alone.

So let's discuss.

Redditor Aburntbagel6 wanted to hear about all the times many of us just couldn't control our disdain. They asked:

"What never fails to piss you off?"
