bad behavior

There's something about seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being younger and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street.

As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go. And yes, it says a lot about people who do that.

Turns out I'm not the only one with strongly held opinions. People shared their thoughts after Redditor Acrobatic_Western_67 asked the online community,

You meet someone new. It's going pretty well, you're connecting, the conversation is flowing smoothly.

Then they spy someone out the corner of their eye, make sure there's no one else within earshot, and drop an unabashedly racist comment.

What's up with that? Abhorrent behavior, right? You probably feel like backing away from them and dislike them immediately, right?

I hated my teenage years. I'd redo them again just to be young, but the drama isn't worth it. I'd say I could be a little scandalous and rebellious but, rebellion as a teen is seen in the eye of the beholder.

But kids will always be kids. They will always mess up in epic proportions, that's part of the fun.

There are just some people in life we all really need to try and avoid.

Some humans just can't stop themselves from being rude, mean-spirited, and difficult.

Of course people can change, learn and grow, but they need to do it on their own time, don't let them take up yours.

The older you get, the circle of friends gets smaller, and you learn to embrace that as a gift.

Choose people wisely. People you can respect and be respected by.

Our past is chock full of "life lessons" that are actually just crap. It's easy to spoon-feed children drivel. They're sponges ready to absorb.

Then those children become adults that require rewiring.

Between culture changes and generations of upheaval, there is a lot that we are left to examine when out in the world. Look at where we are as a society right now. We are stuck in the throes of a culture war stemming from generational misinformation.

So where do we begin?

Redditor Baby_Bella_XX wanted to discuss the information we thought we understood as kids that might require an update. They asked:

What have you had to unlearn from your childhood?
