UGH! Don't some people just drive you wild?! When you reach your boiling point with them you really wanna tell them how you feel but crap, you're at work, at school, or out in public. What you need is something that puts them in their place but also doesn't get you fired. Hmm.

People on Reddit were asked: "What is your best insult without cussing?" These are, by far, some of the best insults we've ever heard. Use wisely!



You're not the person Mr. Rogers thought you could be.

dewhashish

Keep rolling your eyes. Maybe you'll find a brain back there.

"Do you get invited to many parties?" Is a subtle way of calling someone the worst back in Northern Ireland.

Bamboo_Steamer

Go polish your crocs.

benwilliams9

You're as bright as a black hole, and twice as dense.

[deleted]

You're not pretty enough to be this stupid.

Xilver79


2090 called. You're dead and you wasted your time on earth.

DementedUnicorn

Nothing witty about this, but if someone is going off on you, nothing will infuriate them more than to look at them with a little impatience in your eyes and say "Are you done?"

spaminham

I bet you like your steak well done.

MustyCheese

You do realize that people just tolerate you?

If you're about to insult a woman, tell her to go fix her eyebrows. It will HAUNT her.

Kinkfink

You're more useless than Anne Frank's drum kit.

Bennycam


I've been called worse things by better people.

Heard in a meeting once: I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.

back_n_my_day

Well I would agree with you but then we'd both be wrong.

cooze08

I love how you state the obvious with such a sense of discovery.

OralAnalGland

Don't say anything. Just scrunch up your nose like they smell bad whenever they walk by. Sticks and stones can break my bones but crippling insecurities can leave phycological scars.

DRW0813

I'm not saying I hate you, but I'd unplug your life support to charge my phone.

William_Shakes_Beard


Ah, so you're the reason we have warning labels on everything.

KitaraNighmareWeaver

You should try eating some makeup so you can be pretty on the inside.

chrash

This is why people talk about you when you're not around.

Timestogo

Everyone who's ever loved you was wrong.

plowkiller

"Has anybody ever told you that you are incredibly average?"

Overheard this at a party a few weeks ago. It was cold blooded.

Defective_Pancreas

"Your family tree must be a circle."

frittenlord


I can't imagine what qualities you may have that would compensate for your behavior in public.

majorjag

I refuse to have a battle of wits with someone who is unarmed.

gnamyl

Counter insult to being insulted:

"It must be difficult for you, exhausting your entire vocabulary in one sentence."

tubz

Whenever someone throws a tantrum, I love to tell them:

"That is not an age appropriate response."

TrojanBunny

"Well, the Jerk Store called, and they're running out of you."

antibob245

"Wow, you've really lived up to your potential."

taptapuntap


You have a great face for radio.

HAH_bagel

Somewhere out there a tree is working very hard to replace the oxygen you consume. Now go apologize to it.

charbby

You couldn't pour the water out of a boot if the instructions were written on the heel.

Aeashml

You weren't worth the sex that made you.

Mr_Tall

"I hope the rest of your day is as pleasant as you are."

Should be said in an impassive/neutral tone, so they don't quite realize what you've actually said to them until a few moments later.

HawkeThisHawkeThat

I don't care what people say about you. You're alright.

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?"
