Chances are you've met some nasty people out there, but we like to think most people tend to keep a fairly clean and habitable living space. Even so, there are plenty of things that even the most generally clean person tends to overlook. Yes, believe it or not, there are some parts of your home that are typically pretty gross!

And we haven't even gotten started on all the things that are outside!

Lesson learned thanks to Redditor Mullacnagrom, who asked the online community: "What is very unhygienic that people may not realize?"


"Because people are gross."

Money is gross. Every piece of money. Because it's been handled by every person right after they've done everything. Every gross thing.

Because people are gross.

You all disgust me.

"Pick your nose..."

Picking your nose. Not because boogers but because you can actually inoculate a flu or cold virus into your nasal cavity where it just loves to be.

Pick your nose all you want but wash your hands first. Treat your nose holes like your mouth holes and don't put dirty things in.

"That's why..."

Clean your butt cracks in the shower people

"I don't want to, that's gross"

That's why you should clean it.

"People don't replace..."

People don't replace their sponges nearly as often as they should. i hate going to someone's house and they have a disgusting, discolored sponge.

"Your..."

Your computer keyboard, holy CRAP is it filthy.

"Going to work..."

Going to work with the flu.

You can be as careful as you want but even exhaling produces fine aerosols that can travel in the air and make others up to 6ft around you sick.

It's disgusting. Stay home.

Also get your flu shot two weeks before flu season begins. It takes two weeks to kick in. Many people think the flu shot made them sick when the truth is, they got the flu shot too late and got sick before it was effective or got a different strain of the flu.

"Not washing..."

Not washing hands, considering how many people I see do it when they come out of the bathroom. Like seriously, you just touched your penis and probably have poo on them too.

"When restaurants..."

When restaurants leave unwrapped plastic cutlery so you can just help yourself... imagine all those peoples' dirty hands touching the fork that eventually ends up in your mouth.

"Touched by everyone..."

Restaurant menus. Touched by everyone before you and for most people, such as myself, I tend to forget to wash my hands before the food comes out.

"Their phones."

Their phones. I mean, how much porn did you watch on it and how often do you clean the phone...think about it. And when was the last time you took a crap without your phone. But feel free to never wipe it down and press it against your face to take a call.

The world has changed significantly in the last twenty years. Back in the day, you could just step out of the house and be gone all day and no one could contact you unless they were back home or used a payphone.

Nowadays, people expect us to be connected all the time, which is super frustrating in its own way. But it's hard to imagine the world as it was before, right? And it's pretty wild that we just accepted it for so long, that is until technology advanced enough!

Society has changed... for better or worse. People shared their observations after Redditor Silkhide asked the online community,

"What was the most f**ked up thing that was generally accepted twenty years ago?"

Is it ever okay to keep a secret from your parents?

It's been said that what people don't know won't hurt them, and that can certainly depend on the circumstances. But some secrets aren't all sad, dark, and depressing. Some are quite wholesome, believe it or not!

And sometimes your parent might be in on the secret. That's right. One parent.

People were keen to share their experiences after Redditor TheCripdalorian asked the online community,

"What’s one secret you and a parent have kept from the other parental figure?"

Conversation can be one life's scariest actions. Whoever said it was an art form was 100% correct.

Words are beautiful and language is the bedrock of our lives but boy of boy can it create some problems.

One wrong word, or false noun and it can send a conversation reeling.

Having hard chats throughout life though are just part of the deal of living.

It can be especially difficult in relationships with opposite sex. Women are better at communication, that's just fact.

Men have a more arduous time broaching touchy subjects. Some touchier than others.

Case in point...

Redditor aeronacht wanted all of the gents out there to fess about the times they have to make, what could be uncomfortable, chit chat with the ladies, they asked:

"Men of Reddit, what’s the most difficult thing to explain to women?"

Whether it's a fad product from Instagram or something for that hobby you just know you'll start doing one day, it's easy to buy things that seem useful and then just never use them.
