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?"

No Excuses, Janice

Little girl was dressed as a fast food worker for Halloween was being given crap by her aunt for her "low choice" and that she needed to aim higher if she wanted to succeed, whole thing was really demeaning and weird. Girl fired back with: I'm only 12, what's your excuse for being poor then?

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.

There are few things more annoying than when you are seeking advice and someone responds with a boring platitude that helps no one. Believe it or not, if you choose to provide advice, it needs to be specific to the situation and shouldn't be dressed up in trite phrasing. Does saying, "Keep your head up" actually contribute anything if that's all you have to say when someone comes to you in search of a listening ear?

But this goes deeper than just advice, to be fair. Some of us are sick of greedy corporations that stress the importance of being a "family" while refusing to pay proper wages. Still more of us are tired of people using certain language when other language can suffice.

After Redditor BensReddits asked the online community, "What is a phrase you absolutely hate hearing?" people shared their stories.

Dating is difficult––and truth be told, I don't know how anyone can do it right now, what with a pandemic going on and all. Just the thought stresses me out. Dating is especially hard for people who defy expectations in a heteronormative society. Take bisexuals, for example.

We all know someone who really cannot figure out even the most basic thing without copious amounts of help. But when you meet someone who is completely and totally past all help, how do you even begin to try to help them get along?
