The world is full of crazy people.

It feels like that more and more as I meander in my local shopping center.

But a little crazy I can deal with.

I want to discuss the people who leave an imprint of fear.

The people who lack empathy, remorse... and a soul.

You met many of those?

Redditor playmesomethinnice wanted to see who would fess up and discuss the person or persons that leave us shook.They asked:

"What type of people are you scared of?"

No Sense

"It's a bit hard to categorize, but for me it's people who can't be reasoned with."

Existent-Being42

"Like flat earthers. I met one in the wild last summer and it was the weirdest experience. My friend slept with him anyway and I'm still mad at her for it, like don't reward him????"

Sapphire_Bombay

True Psycho

"People who are manipulative liars. Who get you to care about them and then play the victim just to watch you suffer."

ExcellentSnake

"This. It scarred me so much I lost faith and trust in humanity. I was not the target but I’ve seen it with my eyes on a dear friend of mine."

Jona_cc

"Had an ex who lied about having cancer and a twin sister who died in a car wreck, makes no sense to me we were in high school at the time lol."

DirtySquirties

Anything

"There is an odd category of people who seem to be able to get away with anything they do. May it be with their looks, skills, wits, power and everything in between. Them. I'm afraid of them."

ily-bc-yes

"My ex husband is this type. I witnessed him get away with crimes, and not just get away like not get caught... like he got caught, went to court, and somehow convinced the prosecution and judge to drop all charges. It was at that moment I knew real fear from that man."

Lacking in Brain

"The dangerously stupid. F**king up and hurting others but come out unharmed to sheer luck."

KingZaneTheStrange

"Oh like my father in law who was torching weeds right by his shed that then caught fire and spread to an electrical box, deck, tree, and outdoor bar and then laughed about it cause 'I did something just like this at our old house too.'"

Certain

"I don't remember who said it but, 'It's not the people that are unsure that bother me, it's the people that are so certain that scare the hell out of me.'"

Mo_Jack

It's all about sanity levels. Or lack thereof.

"The drunk guys at bars that always have that stare."

Fuses

"People with a short temper."

SuvenPan

"I would add people with a short and unpredictable temper. Those kinds of people who can be totally fine one second, then you do something that doesn't even cross your mind could be 'wrong' and suddenly they're yelling at you. People who explode at seemingly random stuff, no consistency, and particularly at moments you wouldn't expect."

"That's the worst. I'm not particularly used to being yelled at and I'm also rather non-confrontational, so I just don't know what to do when someone does yell at me when I'm absolutely not expecting it. Those people scare the sh*t out of me. I'm constantly on edge when I'm around them and I always feel like I have to walk on eggshells."

ElsaKit

Refusal

"People who refuse to take responsibility for their mistakes."

Silly-Goose-is-Loose

"They think it keeps them out of trouble, failing to recognize it causes so much more trouble for them in long run. A former friend of mine seems to have their brain constantly working on writing excuses for everything (to the point they can't keep their owns tory straight much of the time)."

"With the idea that any decision they make has to be the fault of others. They convince themselves that their every move was beyond their control and they were forced into it by others and then if they still suffer consequences they think it just means they are the victim of injustice. Tragically failing to realize they effectively deprive themselves of any control over the decisions."

QueenElsaArrendelle

Unacceptable...

"People who who are unwilling to accept the limits of their knowledge."

adrunktherapist

"I hate that my limits are there. I want to know more. And I wake up in the middle of the night wondering about James Joyce books and the NASCAR jeopardy questions I don't know."

"My boss hates me but said I'm the only person who is the best on all the machines. I suck at people, but I'm the machine whisperer. I'm the skinny *itch who can tell an autoclave to behave. A DSD to suck it up Sally. I'll even help the front desk with Bob Marley printer."

"Because he be jamming, not my job, but I have a personal vendetta against that machine. I fixed a Gameboy that was sitting in water for 2 weeks. Nintendo does make them good. Yet, I cannot for the life of me can't use an automatic car. Stick or nothing."

Be Scared

"Be scared of the man who has nothing to lose. Be very scared."

"With money diminishing more people are feeling trapped and in a corner."

I believe I've met all of those people. God help me.

People Share The Facts They Wish They'd Never Learned

There's a reason people are prompted to say "Too Much Information" or 'TMI" in modern slang.

Most commonly, people are urged to say so when they've learned a piece of information that they think they would have been better off not knowing.

Information which caused a visceral reaction of one sort or another, be it disgust, sadness, anger or heartbreak.

Making them feel all the worse is knowing what they learned isn't an opinion, but the cold, hard truth.

Some of us dread going to the doctor's office, but keeping up with your checkups is important. You wouldn't want to have a sudden health emergency would you? (Keeping up with appointments is kind of difficult to do in a nation where so many people are uninsured, but that's a topic for another article...)

Ask a doctor, ask any doctor, and they're bound to have a story about a patient who came in for a routine checkup, not thinking that their symptoms were in any way important.

We heard some of these stories after Redditor Cuteregister1827 asked the online community,

"Doctors of Reddit, what was your worst, 'I don't think this is important, but—' patient?"

Could you be on board?

Unrequited love is tough to get over.

There's nothing worse than having your heart set on a crush who gives you butterflies, but they just don't feel the same way and would rather be with other people.

And while it's hard to accept the fact that "it's not meant to be," the reality of a person not being right for you can manifest in a way that can provide a huge sense of relief.
