Sometimes in life, we make mistakes. Those mistakes can lead us down a path we never thought we'd lead. We can even feel regret.
Regardless of what it was, whether a small mistake was made or a life-changing decision, we learn our lessons. Those lessons we can then share with those around us and hopefully they learn as well.
We went to Reddit to know what things people have done once before and learned never to do it again.
Redditor Beyond_Human_202 asked:
"What's something you never want to do again?"
Let's see if we can take a page or two from these Redditor's books.
Putting energy into an unbalanced relationship.
"Waste time on a person who doesn't put the energy in the relationship as I do. This is draining."
"Yeah it is better to stay out of relationships where things are not mutual."
"Oof same. Not long ago I left my ex who couldn't even be bothered to come with me to my aunt's funeral. It made me crazy cynical and not hopeful for my future prospects. I've since found someone who wants to spend time with me, who listens, who cares about my wants and needs. I've felt more love from him in 6 months than I did in a 7-year relationship. If you haven't found who you're looking for yet, I wish you luck. They're out there."
"Disappoint someone I care about..."
"I also want to stop being disappointed in people. I don't know why I am always so shocked when I find out yet another human sucks. Why am I this way?"
"For me it's lying to somebody who I love. It's so hard to disappoint someone but its not worth a lie."
Been there, done that.
"I would do it again if I could go back with all the memories I have now."
"Reliving it as I did the first time, though, f*ck no."
"Idk man, that almost sounds worse. Giving up all your adult freedoms and privileges. Dealing with high school level conversations and relationships. If you really wanted a redo you could probably use your current knowledge to rock your way through high school, but there would be a ton of downsides."
"Honestly I think high school would be easy as a do over, from class work and not being involved in as much petty BS because of experience and perspective... but then I think, you'd have these memories and this perspective but how much would that be compromised by being in a hormone flooded teen body again? How much of teen obnoxiousness is chemical vs perspective related?"
"The hardest part wouldn't be the other teens: it'd be the adults. Will never forget the conversation with the assistant principal halfway through freshman year where he misspelled my name, and then when I corrected him politely he looked me in the eye, grinned, and answered, 'I know,' without correcting a letter. Then he held that gaze to stare me down."
"Was in his office to take care of routine paperwork because I was transferring into that school. He was a massive jerk who knew he could get away with baiting a fourteen-year-old, and I was an honor roll student with no disciplinary problems. What a nightmare that man must have been to the kids who made any minor mistake such as being late to class."
Now that sounds painful.
"Bite my tongue so hard that it lacerates and then later develops a nickel-sized canker sore that prevents me from eating and speaking for two weeks. Doctor had to prescribe lidocaine mouthwash because the pain was so unbearable."
"I can empathize as I get canker sores a lot from biting my tongue/cheek or otherwise. Debacterol is a life changer."
"My heart goes out to you. Those things REALLY F*CKING HURT but they don't look like a big deal so people don't get how misery making they are."
No amount of money should be worth this.
"Compromise my morals and standards for a sub-par paycheque."
There's actually record numbers of people quitting their jobs right now, probably for this very reason.
"Second guess myself...maybe...hang on..."
"Are you sure?"
"...um...possibly...I don't know if I am indecisive or not..."
Puppies look cute, but...
"Raise a puppy. As cute as they are, they're little monsters."
"As I read that my 17 week old lab just pushed his way through the fly screen to get inside."
"I have raised 3 different Golden retriever puppies over the years, and while I loved them all , I will never raise a puppy again. It is very very difficult. I will likely just adopt an adult dog next time."
Addiction is a difficult illness.
"Meth and heroin. I'm 7 years clean and I've never thought about going back."
"I started dating someone and moved in with him, he was an alcoholic and started to abuse me, before I could get out he offered me meth and when I tried it I felt like I couldn't leave. I tried it because I was being abused, believed no one wanted or needed me, no one but him could love me, and meth is what he did."
"Later in that relationship he let me try heroin and it was a turning point, I was worse on it than I was on meth."
"He didn't want me to live there so we lived in a hotel for a few months, one night I got so drunk I fell asleep outside of the hotel room, I called my family, they picked me up, I called the police and then they came and picked me up and took me to the ER. I immediately got rehab and within two weeks I decided to leave him forever. A few weeks after rehab I went to my first NA meeting and my life changed. I never went back."
"Lose really nice friends due to my own insecurities."
"The thing with friends is that you can reconnect several years later, assuming both want to reconnect."
"Except I messed up really bad. I've tried to reconnect but the trust is just too broken..."
This list goes in so many different directions, but it's important to look into all aspects of life when evaluating the path we want to lead going forward.
Your future is yours to determine, so why keep doing something that makes out lives more difficult?

We all know we don't have endless time on this earth, so we prioritize things that we want to do while we are around. We create bucket lists and dream boards and imagine all the endless possibilities for adventure. Often, those bucket lists include dangerous acts like sky diving or deep sea exploration.
But what about things you would never do in your lifetime. Not for any other reason other than it being too fear inducing or too dangerous. We went to Ask Reddit to find out what those wild adventures are that just aren't worth the risk.
Some folks also shared that they made some serious life decisions that were important to their health and well being. Trying dangerous substances or staying on top of their weight loss was important and they never wanted to take that risk again.
Redditor machine1892 asked:
"You all know what a bucket list is, what is on your 'f*ck no, not ever list'?
Let's find out what people are just not willing to do.
Exploring the depths of the unknown is just too unknown.
"Cave diving or underground not fully explored dark tight tunnels. The movie 'As Above So Below' and the real life tragedy of 'Nutty Putty Cave' was enough for me to add that to my f*ck no list."
"A real caver once told me that for every 1 hour you travel into a cave, it will take them 4 hours to drag your busted up @ss out of there if something goes wrong."
"I'm a caver and one black humor mantra I've heard before is 'Don't worry, help is just 3 days away!' due to the difficult nature of cave rescues."
"That said, there are incredible teams of cavers who will do everything possible to rescue people and animals from cave-related incidents. I have a whole book covering the past few decades of cave rescues."
"Dunno if you will have seen this, but there's an old American emergency/911/sh*t happened kind of show in which 4 open water divers on air go 30ft down, and the instructor tells them to avoid entering the cave around that level both in briefing, and signs to surface, and 3 of them don't and go into the cave."
"Instructor alerts people at surface, seconds away, there is a trained cave rescue diver on scene by chance, he is in within 2 minutes, and saved one of them."
"Literally, they are less than 35 ft from surface, less than a minutes travel into the cave, and only one survives, despite having a guy right there, with lights, trimix and the right training."
"Dive talk covered it at one point."
If you're claustrophobic, this is definitely off your bucket list.
"A submarine or anything else bad for a claustrophobe."
"lol I worked on subs for 4 years….it's cool once, then it's just cramped, tiny and annoying."
"Son was a Navy Nuc on a ballistic missal sub. Said he was too busy working, eating or sleeping to be claustrophobic. I got to tour the sub once. I am extremely proud of him but thought he was crazy."
The ocean can destroy you.
"I absolutely fear the ocean and I won't go out farther than 6ft lmao. So I'd never go on things such as cruises or boat trips. It also doesn't help that I can't swim."
"I'm VERY comfortable in the water, but even I still fear the ocean. I live in Hawaii and swim, board, fish, kayak treasure hunt, etc., all things ocean-related and love every second of it but man the ocean will destroy you. People die here all the time. An experienced surfer died here a couple weeks ago in an area considered a calmer area. A couple of days ago another girl fell off the rocks and drowned. If you do not respect the ocean, you will die."
"There were 3 rescues today at a popular bodyboarding beach in my town. Only 2 survived."
"Have a family member teach you how to swim. It is worth it, trust me. A lot of my friends 20-25 years old just recently learned how to swim so don't feel embarrassed."
I am absolutely petrified of regular boats, but I've been on a few cruises (after a lot of convincing) and they're actually great. It feels more like walking around a mansion that has waterslides and all you can eat buffets than a boat"
"Yeah, and ships these days have enough stabilization that you'll almost never feel any waves unless you're in incredibly rough seas, which the captains will avoid as much as possible anyway."
That early 2000s game show is nightmare worthy.
"Those Fear Factor games where they put a sh*t ton of spiders or other scary creatures on top of you while you lay there. Yeah, that's a huge f*ck no from me."
"The ones where they make you eat a whole lot of stuff that's not just weird or another culture's food (i.e. crickets/tripe) but is actually seriously unhealthy ... like drink a litre of rancid oil... are far worse, to my mind."
"I always said the prize money from that show was to cover medical bills because there's no way people were 100% okay afterwards."
"That's actually why the show got cancelled. They made a girl drink donkey semen and the network finally said 'enough.'"
"Not even kidding, one of the most popular shows in the UK is where we send celebrities to live in the jungle for three weeks and do exactly this to them! And the celebs who go on it LOVE IT!"
The Best 'Actually, You're Speaking To The Boss' Experience | George Takei’s Oh Myyy
Keeping off the weight.
"Become obese again."
"I was obese for almost 10 years of my life, but I decided to lose the weight in my early 20s. Feels great to be active and healthy."
"I'm here with you. Was 250 at my largest, I've since lost over 70 pounds and am in my mid-twenties. It feels great to look great, which I expected, but it feels better to just feel healthy. I wanted to lose weight more for vanity reasons, now I care way less about those and just love being healthy. I'm not at my goal weight but I feel amazing and it's such a huge contrast. So congrats, I'm really happy for you!"
"That's how I feel. At my heaviest, I was at 235 and I'm down to 202, but it's not even the weight loss that keeps me going. For the first time ever I actually craved working out when I went on vacation for a week and couldn't. The vacation was fun, but damn my body went back to aching at the end of it. If I don't stretch I get really bad pain from sitting down for work."
This cheese is called Casu Martzu. It's a sheep's milk cheese that has living larva inside.
"Those who do not wish to eat them place the cheese in a sealed paper bag. The maggots, starved for oxygen, writhe and jump in the bag, creating a "pitter-patter" sound. When the sounds subside, the maggots are dead and the cheese can be eaten."
"Somehow, there is a hint of sadism behind this paragraph."
"Almost 9 years clean off heroin, I sometimes get questions from people from people about what it's like and I always tell them 'it's the greatest feeling in the world and it'll ruin your life.' Now I don't care how good it felt because going through the withdrawal is one of my greatest fears. Also the lifestyle is absolute misery."
"Congrats on being clean, fellow Redditors."
"Congratulations! 10 years sober from those vile substances. Whenever I think about how my life was I feel sick to my stomach."
"Space. Too many ways to die a slow, painful death. Plus the pooping thing. I never knew how much I liked pooping on Earth before I learned how you have to poop in space."
"Gravity is your friend on the toilet. In zero G (free fall technically?), there's nothing to pull the poo away from your butt. There are supposed to be toilets that use fans to help with separation, but... they aren't flawless."
"Also, there's the quote, 'After it starts getting full, you have to put a rubber glove on and pack it down.'"
"Back in the early days, you had to poop in a bag filled with bactericidal liquid and KNEAD the poop and liquid together, so things are improving, but I don't think they'll ever improve enough for me."
No need to ruining a relationship.
"Having an affair."
"Cheaters ruin lives."
Power to those who like this type of thing.
"Running a marathon. Or training for one. Anything that ends in thon is just a big no for me."
"Running for the sake of running... omg, just the thought of it make me want to die of boredom. I don't mind running if it's part of something, like there is a soccer ball involved, but to run just to run? Kill me."
How do people not just start tearing up instantly?
"Eat a onion like a apple."
"My son is a toddler, and the other day I was cutting up an onion. He thought it was an apple and felt mad I was depriving him of it. I let him take a bite. He paused for a second, looked me right in the eye, then kept chewing. Monster."
This is just too extreme, but somehow people still do it.
"Have you ever seen the videos of that mountain climb thing in China where there is literally just like a 2x4 board nailed to the side of a mountain and people have this little handrail to hold on to while they inch their way around...."
"My butthole is puckering right now just thinking about it... There is just no way in hell ever."
"And some mountain climbers sleep during their climb. Like, they'll shove a few nails in the rock, hang a tent, and sleep while dangling off the side of a mountain."
"That's a nope from me."
It's a huge commitment, and it's not for everyone.
"I have a son and I love him more than anything. But I would never ever have another kid, ever. The amount of love and time and patience you need to have and give them, the nights where you barely sleep 2 hours, the days when he gets sick and that makes you worried sick too... and he's not even a teenager, I heard that brings its own challenges. I just couldn't do it for anyone else but my son."
"And I really hate it when I tell people how hard it is and what sacrifices you have to make and whatever else and they assume I don't like my kid or resent him or something..."
"(And if its 2035 and you're reading this: I love you, son)"
Though there are plenty of people who have done these things, there are good reasons to avoid them. Especially for those choices that were life threatening or deadly.
What's most important in your life is finding what is meaningful for you and doing what makes your life worth living.

When determining how to spend our life in a way that feels worthy, many place a heavy emphasis on experiences. We want to die with scars and stories.
And sticking our necks out inevitably leads to a whole lot of struggle. But that doesn't mean we wouldn't do the same thing the very next day if we could go back.
Some things, though we'll never do them again, were too important an experience to pass up.
Redditor JackIrishJack asked:
"What should you do once, but not twice?"
Many people talked about the life experiences, big and small, that influenced their outlook. They recommend people go through some discomfort to gain important awareness.
A Capacity for Empathy
"Working in the food industry I feel like everybody should do it once so they can have a respect for food workers but it's also a hell I never want to go through again"
Paying for a Daydream
"Buy a lottery ticket"
"You're not going to win, but buying a lottery ticket gives you the chance to dream and pretend. Having a second lottery ticket isn't going to make your dreams more vivid."
Plenty of Implications
"Visit Auschwitz. I firmly believe everyone should go visit it so as to not forget what humans are capable of doing to each other. But no need to visit twice. Once was enough for me."
Others brought up things which, if done twice, would be a sure sign that something is very very wrong.
Supposed To Be Permanent
"Learning how to walk. The first time - good on you. Having to
relearn a second time means something went terribly wrong."
Only Two Sets
"Lose all of your teeth" -- Outrageous_Cream_112
"Haha I had to think about this for a second" -- ApplesauceDoctr
Don't Wanna Find Yourself There Too Often
"Get beaten half to death breaks the concepts of your limits. Second time breaks the spirit. Third time is overkill."
Others apparently viewed the question as an opportunity for a little cleverness.
If You're Good
"Cut...you measure twice before." -- wxguy215
"For me its more like 'measure twice, make sure it's just a teeny bit too long then go back and shave it off little by little until it wedges in perfectly' " -- pistpuncher3000
As the Saying Goes
"Fool me" -- Thia_suzieUzi
"FOOL ME THREE TIMES FU** THE PEACE SIGN LOAD THE CHOPPA LET IT RAIN ON YOU" -- nixusthegod
Only a Couple to Work With
"Donate a kidney" -- RealisticDelusions77
"Donate one kidney, you're a hero. Donate two kidneys, you're a corpse. Donate three kidneys, you're a felon." -- Drach88
"Be born. Going through the birthing process again would probably kill my mother." -- cylonrobot
Here's hoping we can all find the healthy balance between living a full, experienced life and punishing ourselves a little too much.

Some things ought not be tried again.
Sure, they made sense the first time. It may have held charm, at least some sense of purpose on the second go around. But eventually, surely, an essential truth became clear: never again.
Reddit is apparently crawling with people carrying around that permanent grudge towards some thing they've done in the past.
Lucky for us, we can learn from their mistakes.
senorllama57 asked, "What is something you will never do again?"
There were, of course, plenty of people who discussed horrible jobs they've held in the past. They may have had little choice at the time, but now that it's all in the past they feel free to share how they really felt.
The Customer Always Seems To Be Wrong
"Work retail. I think every kid fresh out of high school should work a retail job for a year. It builds character." -- ProfessionalTheme415
"How did you get out!?! Lol. It's like a black hole where I work. Everyone that tries to leave comes back." -- threebillion6
"Go to school for a million years to get a PhD" -- I_are_facepalm
"I heard a military friend of mine call it the most fun he'd never want to have again."
"Reminded me of grad school in a sense." -- HitEmWithDatKTrain
A Lot Going On
"Work in a nursing home. The sights, screams and pleas Will haunt me forever." -- M_Lamora
"Honestly working in a nursing home was one of the most weird jobs I ever had. I've never been threatened so many times in my life. I once had a memory care resident ask me if I would help her jump a caregiver."
One After Another
"Work in a call center." -- Evilsmurfkiller
"Sucked the soul right out of me within a year." -- Bandana-mal
"I was at one for 2 and half years and it was not until I left I realized I had work-related depression. I was overeating, not eating, sleep deprived, slept all the time, I had such rage that would come out at times...
"I did not care what happened to me, I left because they were gonna fire me over something dumb because they just fire people for being there long. I left over a year ago, and I have not been this happy to wake up every day in years, my life is so much better now." -- UnusualLight0
Others discussed past struggles they've encountered within the romantic realm. Unfortunately, these lessons came with plenty of emotional struggle.
"Get married. It'll be 19 years this August and my marriage is my marriage. I reserve the right to have a girlfriend at some point if she passes away before I do, but she's the one and only wife, end of story."
"Ignore red flags when talking to someone I want to date. I've done it twice now, and both times sucked" -- YareYareYandere
"Listen to your gut. If something feels off, you're probably not imagining it." -- SurealGod
Don't Forget About You
"Okay first off I'm sorry if this might sound cringe :D . . . That would be hmm become too attached/codependent on a person. Whether it may be of a lover, friend, or just acquaintance."
"Idk if it's coincidence but they either end up gone one day or become total di**s when you least expect it and I'm forced to cut ties."
And some people chose to recall the things they were so certain would be fun and enjoyable, but turned out to be so not.
A Bad Ratio
"I made a super elaborate meal once. It was ... okay. Certainly not worth the effort involved." -- Astramancer_
"Take an hour to make something, only takes 15 minutes to eat. It's bullsh**." -- SurealGod
Hours and Hours
"Times Square on New Years' Eve. It was fun once, never need to do it again." -- AnswerGuy301
"I was going to answer the same thing. It seemed like it would be so much fun but now that I know what it entails — never again" -- hi_its_me
"I have never been and never understood the attraction of waiting for hours and hours in the shivering weather." -- amrodd
Think of Grease Splatters
"Prepare steaks when drunk" -- Kiaulunne
"Not for your reason, but same here. Cooked one at 2am after half a bottle of rum. Quickly ate and passed out after. Woke up around 8am dying for water and realised I left the gas stove on... So glad nothing burned down..." -- schofield101
"I will never get drunk again. Tipsy, buzzed, sure. Thats fine."
"But when I was in front of that toilet for an hour, being so weak I couldn't even sit up, having people constantly come in to check on me, worrying that I might have alcohol poisoning, that is exactly not a fun time"
The Inverse of Brand Loyalty
"Drink Fireball Whiskey." -- WolffePack
"My first time getting absolutely wasted was from Fireball. I ever really drank before, at a friend's house. Neither of us understood the concept that fireball should be taken in small shots. We literally filled up kitchen cups full of fireball. I probably drank 3 or 4. It was so bad that I couldn't even drink fireball for 6 years after that. Just one taste instantly made me want to vomit." -- stooduponce
"A thousand miles in one day on a motorcycle." -- A40
"But it must've been fun." -- ryc4d0
"From L.A. to Seattle it was. From Seattle on to Vancouver it was no fun at all, just determination ;-)" -- A40
"Drink the liquid from a can of black olives."
"0/10 would not recommend"
So take some notes! Or maybe there were some true horrors you went through that this list seems to be lacking.
With so many options for nearly every product on the market, people have exactly zero patience whatsoever when a brand disrespects their time or money.
We hear a lot about brand loyalty. Be it through good customer service, solid products that always deliver, or admirable ethics, some companies manage to find their ideal population of consumers and match their values time and time again.
It's good for people and it's good for business: people feel good about what they buy, and companies keep earning revenue through all those purchases.
But the very opposite occurs as well. Brand disloyalty--or perhaps better called "brand hatred," given how outraged people can be--occurs when a company defies customer ethics or belittles them in some way.
Obviously, that's bad for business. And not just because that one person won't make anymore purchases. But because people appear to enjoy spreading the word about their vendetta against a corporation.
mememachine92 asked, "Redditors, what is your 'Never again' brand?"
Don't Mess With People's Cats
"Meow Mix. Stupid stuff had my cat throwing up red dye EVERYWHERE. I called customer support because I was concerned for my cat, and the lady hung up on me."
"Called again, got a manager, food was refunded and vet bills paid by them."
"F*** Meow Mix."
"Samsung for putting ads in the menu of my TV that I paid for" -- romeo_papa_mike
"I have a Galaxy Note 10+, I paid $1,400 for it and now it's got ads on it. When you open the native weather app there's a massive ad on top."
"Not like a tiny banner at the bottom, nope it's massive f**king ad in your face. For a phone you paid for."
"This is my 4th Galaxy phone and I promised myself I'm never ever buying another Galaxy phone." -- DekeKneePulls
Sometimes It's All About Quality
"La Choy Soy Sauce. How do you f*** up soy sauce? They give that sh** away for free at every Asian restaurant in America."
"I thought soy sauce was soy sauce... like table salt- the brand doesn't matter. It matters."
"Kohl's. I can't stand stores that always seem to have like a 40% off sale where their merchandise still seems overpriced."
"I bought a pair of jeans there that literally disintegrated in the washing machine."
"Walmart. They treat their employees like crap and donate to politicians I despise. My boycott has lasted so long it's a mancott." -- terrierhead
"I so wished I lived in a place where Walmart wasn't the only option!"
"Though I do feel like my local Walmart isn't as 'people of walmarty' as most people complain about." -- smiletorismile
"Urban Outfitters. My wife and I went to Kent State University where the infamous event of 4 protestors of the Vietnam war were shot and killed by the National Guard."
"So about 4 years ago, Urban Outfitters put out a 'vintage KSU shirt' which was a shirt with KSU's logo and fake blood stains on it. I'm all for a good joke but this was just poor taste, not funny, nor did the shirt look 'cool' in any way."
"I never had any of their clothes but we did have some of their other stuff as decorations in the house. My wife was about to buy something else there for the house and we were both like 'wait, no, f*** them.'"
Customer Review: Extreme Pain
"Garnier face/skin products Apparently I'm really allergic to something that only they specifically seem to use in their products."
"I can use anything from the drugstore- except Garnier. Instant chemical burns. It doesn't seem to matter 'what' product it is either. It all melts my skin in a very ugly way."
"Wells Fargo. F*** you Wells Fargo." -- ClarksCatCarl
"I remember seeing a billboard for Wells Fargo like 2016 or 17, saying 'We're recommitting to you,' and I remember thinking that's not a very good slogan. Like what, did they formerly commit to their customers and suddenly stop, LOL?"
"Then I heard about this massive scandal where they got caught screwing over their own customers, and it made a lot more sense. How badly do you have to screw up where even your advertisements are saying 'We promise we won't fuck you anymore?'" -- Black-Thirteen
Dime a Dozen
"Morphe makeup, such awful quality, got it as a gift and felt bad for the person who spent their money to buy it for me" -- sparklingYoongi
"Agreed, the eye shadow was tragic. I'm heading back to established name brand make up. Too much crappy makeup being pushed out by the make up influencer market and it isn't stacking up."
"No matter how much they push all their buzz words about how their products are better, they aren't." -- CybReader
Cheap in All Regards
"Frontier airlines. I don't care what the name of the cute animal on the side of the plane is."
"I'm not gonna overpay to sit on your bent metal cafeteria tray for 5 hours next to an addict while getting cussed out by your flight attendant."
"Bank of America. Almost lost out on buying my home due to the incompetence of their mortgage department." -- jllauser
"Their mortgage department also had a major hand in collapsing the world economy in 2008." -- TrineonX
"It's not incompetence, it's profiteering. We had always paid our mortgage in person at our local bank. 2 days before it was due, on the 1st of the month."
"BOA bought 'em - nope, now you have to mail it in. AND we're going to sit on it for two weeks so that you get a late charge each month." -- seeteethree
"Ashley Home Furniture. The furniture is cheap quality and cost way more money than it should."
"The customer service is complete sh** to. One of my moms friends sat in a chair outside the store to tell people not to be stuff from there."
"The company is that bad"
Convenient for Who?
"Ticketmaster should be much higher up. I know pretty much all concerts and plays are canceled due to COVID-19 but seriously f*** those guys" -- vicemagnet
"That dang service/convenience fee just because you bought online and have them sent to your email." -- I_Got_A_Big_Ol_Taz
"They have a serious monopoly. I remember in the 90s everyone protested them and stuff and then they just went back to doing the same exorbitant knock up sh**" -- runaway766
Some Boozey Sauce
"Postmates. They refused to give me my order because I didn't have ID, because the order contained alcohol. Fair enough, right?"
"Except the 'alcohol' was cocktail sauce. As in ketchup with horseradish in it."
"As in NOT F***ING ALCOHOL."
A Fabulous Scam
"They put a super sneaky agreement when checking out which automatically enrolls you to their 'VIP' programme where you pay $60 a month for NOTHING as far as I see it."
"I didn't realise that I had set up this agreement until a few months later, at which point I had paid Fabletics about $300 which I couldn't get back."
Noooooo Not the Puppies
"Hartz brand anything for pets. Flea medicine almost killed my cat and made him sick for 8+ months straight."
"Found out there's an entire victim's organization because Hartz brand stuff has killed so many peoples pets. Especially dogs. Don't do it. Just.... just buy the more expensive stuff and do your research first."
They Had One Job
"Durex. I now have twins." -- MeMakeWords
"Fo sure. I was born, too." -- callmebeets
"Durex suck pretty bad. Had to take plan B a couple times before we decided to just be done with that brand. Funny enough it was the Trojan brand that did us in. Currently 8 months pregnant due to a broken Trojan condom 😒" -- jebzz12
