Sometimes it's the little things that make the biggest impact. It's a domino effect- one tiny thing leads to another tiny thing, then another, then another...until it becomes a complete mess. What are these minor mistakes? These Redditors will tell you.

u/cobaltbpt asked: What's a minor mistake that can't be undone?

Definitely not minor.

Putting a sticker slightly off center on your LEGO.

swiggityswaygreenday

OP said "minor".

gaprats

An "accident".

Giphy

When you send a text or an e-mail to the wrong person...

ToonlinkFTW890

And they're definitely not going to believe you when you tell them it was an accident.

TRUTH

Accidentally liking someone's photo while looking at their profile... things like a minefield.

Nuclear_Soup

Worse when you're 3 years deep in their photos too.

Be honest.

When someone asks "what do you really think" and you are honest and it's not what they wanted to hear.

The cat can never be put back in the bag and it will always be out there.

Whose fault is that? I feel like people shouldn't ask for an opinion if they don't want the truth. I won't be mean, but if someone asks how they look in a dress, I will be honest. I'll say something along the lines of "I'm not a fan of that dress. What if you try this one? The color will bring out your eyes."

Good plan.

Giphy

Calling an SO your ex's name.

SleepyySnorlaxx

That's why you find a common name when you start dating, only date people with that name.

Um, ew.

Overcooking pasta.

drj0e

If you overcook it, just mash it. Same as overcooking potatoes, only way forward is to mash it. Mashing solves problems!

Philosofried

That's comforting.

Typos on your resume/CV. It's already too late, you look unprofessional.

ProstituteEggz

Honestly they aren't always that big of a deal. I see 7-10 a day and a typo is the least of the issues.

The STRUGGLE.

Giphy

Trimming your bangs too short.

jillieboobean

I wanted to shape my eyebrows when I was 11 and my mom wouldn't let me get them done. So, I just took a regular razor and just tried to trim around the edges. Of course I took the entire tail end of my eyebrow off. Only recently did it start growing in normally again. I'd say I went a solid ten years without my eyebrow tail growing back in with more than a few hairs.

NotThatSerious26

Good cover.

Calling a teacher mom.

XxpandamanxX

I was about five or six when I did this in school, but luckily for me I didn't say it with enough confidence that someone would hear me and the teacher was speaking to someone else so she didn't notice. However, me being the awkward kid that I was, I started singing a song I made up called "Mommy" so I could pretend that I was just singing at the time. What. The f*ck.

NotThatSerious26

A fair argument.

Accidentally stepping on your dog's tail or paw. The instant look of hurt and betrayal on their face always stays with me.

ifearbears

I have a black cat, and the last place I lived had dark hardwood floors. That sonovab*tch got kicked so many times, and every time he'd squall about it. I'd just remind him that it's his dumb a** who can see in the dark.

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
