The "Right" Click

Anyone familiar with computers knows what happens when you "right click" on the mouse; you get to see all the hidden options for a file. But what if there was a right click in life?

Reddit user Coast_2_Coast asked "What options would come up if you could 'right-click' people?"

Here are the creative replies.

Do I know you?

I'd hope nametags because I don't remember anyone's names

Under "properties", along with age, marital status, etc.

Friends in common, to see where you know them from.

No more arguing at bedtime

"Send to..." would be interesting

That would be amazing for parents. Right-click, Send to, Bed.

Relationships are hard

Asking for a friend

Add Friend

:(

Did you hear something?

Ignore

Yes. Ignore permanently-until-removed, or ignore-for-preset-duration would be great

"Other Permissions..."

Add to Contacts --- if this person has granted you permissions to do so, puts their email address / phone number / home address / etc. into your contact list.

Grant Permissions --- allow this person to access your information; also grant other permissions.

Snapshot --- record the thing this person is currently doing. Does not require permissions; can be used to document bad behavior.

Volume --- raise or lower your perception of this person's speech volume. Useful for that coworker who doesn't know how well their voice carries; or that person you're trying to make conversation with over loud music.

Block --- raises a hazy forcefield barrier between this person and you, preventing physical contact and muffling sound.

Have we met?

'Find related conversation...'

To find prior conversations you've had with or about the person.

It would save me a lot of embarrassment... "Nice to meet you, you must be ." "Nooo, I'm , we've met several times before..." /dies

Just in case

Or use the alternative meaning of snapshot, make a complete record of the person as they are now and revert them to that if anything goes wrong.

There's no way this could end badly

What about copy, then paste. Now you have 2 of them. Delete, removes them from your life. Shift + delete removes them from existence. Cut then paste, cut them out of existence and move them someplace new at the exact moment they were cut out. Example, door to door sales person or religious/political knocmer shows up. Cut, walk over to annoying neighbor's house, knock on their door, paste, run.

I need an adult

report.

I don't know to who but I'd imagine it would go to the developer.

Mum & Dad are getting a lot of notifications that they never wanted...

So tasty

Refresh

-a lemonade appears in the person's hand

Teleporter Alternative?

If you could right click yourself that would be amazing, who needs cars when you just right click then "send to: C:Windows/user/(insert your name here)/home"

Being woken up suddenly is not very good for our health.

Especially for the elderly, it's not something to make a habit of. Sleep interruption can increase blood pressure, cause a worsened self image, and cause a day filled with irritation and confusion.

No one wants to be woken up, but there are definitely some reasons for being woken up that are worse than your alarm clock.

We went to Ask Reddit to find out some of the worst reasons people have been woken up.

People have a habit of excusing crap behavior - honestly because it's often easier in the short term. Long term = flaming dumpster fire.

We live in a time where we are critically re-examining how we pay workers. After a two-year-long pandemic where some low-income and "unskilled" jobs were deemed "essential," we now must put our money where our mouth is.

For too long in the world have incredibly important jobs been overlooked or else outright maligned. Teachers in the USA make some of the least money, career-wise, and have some of the hardest jobs. Dancers pay to put their bodies through hell with no guarantee of paid work after training.

What causes a small town to die?

Honestly, there can be quite a few factors, but perhaps the biggest one is that small towns often lack the upward mobility opportunities that are more available in urban areas.

As a result, many towns around the United States for instance have lost tens of millions of people as their populations seek jobs and opportunities elsewhere.

And what remains of these places can be pretty sketchy.

People told us more after Redditor RadicalizedSnackWrap asked the online community,

"What's a super sketchy US city that we never hear about?"
