Children are icons. Full stop. They have a lot less filters than we adults do.

As such, sometimes something leaves the mouth of a child that is deep and cutting and guess what? They do not give one single fraction of a f**k.

And honestly, when a kid is savage to an adult, don't tell us you aren't 100% immediately in love with that kid.


u/sundriedsandles asked:

What's the most savage thing you heard a child say to an adult?

Here were some of those savage answers.


Sister Zing

My 11 year old sister to one of my friends:

"Hey, did you know that if you were to eat a bee, you would have more brains in your stomach than in your head."

A conversation I overheard between my father and sister:

My father: "Can your little legs carry your big smart mouth?"

My sister: "can your legs carry your big stomach?"

Some Practical Kids

I was at a public safety education event for grades 5/6 representing EMS. I was showing a kid some of the advanced things we do and her teacher asked "So, would you want to be a Paramedic?"

Her reply...."No, I'm going to study business, I want to be able to pay my bills".

Still kinda stings.

Forever Alone

My 8 year old niece-in-law was talking to my brother and me. Since her aunt was dating my brother she asked me who my girlfriend was. I said I didn't have one. She said "Oh... some people are just supposed to be alone, I guess."

Gee, thanks.

This Is Cruelty

I'm a high school teacher. Once a student came up to me and said "Ms. ____ has anyone told you that you look nice today?" I said "Aww. Thank you! They haven't." She then said "Good. I wanted to make sure no one was lying to you." And walked away.

Kids Maybe Don't Grasp How Serious This Is

When I was around 4 or 5 we went to Canada to attend my grandfathers funeral. It was a long time coming so my grandmother had been handling it well. We stayed up there for about 2 weeks after since it was summer and we usually spent august up there anyways, but this time as we were pulling out of the driveway to head back south I leaned out the window and shouted "Bye Grandma! Love you! Don't die now!"

Sorry, Becky

Was chilling at a wedding, the bridesmaids were sitting there with the 5 year old flower girl. One of the bridesmaids said she wished she would be the next to get married and the flower girl said "No Becky, you are too ugly to get married." I burst out laughing.

That'll Do, Pig

This one time when I was a kid, me and my family were out eating at a restaurant. Everything was fine until I notice the table next to us. The man (a very big man) had a HUGE plate of mussels, and he was scarfing them down like I had rarely seen.

Then this man let a serious burp come out. My whole family heard it. That's when I turned around to face the man, looking at him with huge round eyes. He said ''Sorry about that'' to which I replied ''Don't worry about it, pig.'' I was around 8 years old. I don't quite remember his reaction, but my dad sometimes reminds me of this story.

Kids Really Know How To Get Right On In There

5 year old daughter looked at me and out of nowhere said "I don't think you're fat mum... You're just a teeeennnnsssssyyyy bit chunky" used her fingers for emphasis too, cheers buddy.

3 year old yesterday morning walked into my bedroom, pointed at me and called me a ballbag. Died laughing as it was so unexpected but his father and I had some words.

The King Of Hell

My friend when he was about 4 was in trouble so he had to be in the kitchen with his mom where she could see him. He was bored and wanted to play but she wouldn't let him so he looked at her and said in his sweetest voice "Mom if you're here, who's running hell?" Still the most savage burn I've seen in a while.

Not all television and movies are loved by all.

A story and its characters have to appeal to you in order for you to be engaged.

It can take next to nothing for us to lose interest and let the screen go black.

I fear death.

I wake up in cold sweats dreaming about it.

I think about it in my waking hours.

It's an obsession and clearly, I'm not alone.

But there are more preferred ways to exit.

All we can do is hope to be lucky enough to skip the mercilessly awful.

Please just let me go quick and in my sleep.

Most Americans think nothing of their humdrum daily activities or amenities available to them.

Many people work hard from the moment they are on the clock until their respective shifts are over at the end of a long day.

For many of those in the workforce, the wages barely sustain a comfortable living, especially for those who are raising a family.

Yet, there are jobs that are known to pay a higher salary without requiring extreme physical labor, or the requirement of higher education.
