I don't care how exciting it sounds or how cool it looks?

There are just somethings I will never do before my time comes to an end.

Some people's "bucket lists" look like a list of ways to die quicker.

I have no interest in death defying stunts before I perish. What's the point?

I'm trying to survive. So my anti-bucket list is long and proud.

What ever happened to just getting on roller coasters or living a good life?

Why is everybody so extra now?


Redditor Couch_Licker wanted to hear about all the things people are willing to NOT do before leaving this Earth.

They asked:

"What is on your anti-bucket list of things you NEVER want to do in your lifetime?"

Tattoos, sky diving, snake wrangling, safari... no thank you to ALL of the above. Travel. I just want to travel. To fancy places with hotels. You can keep the jungle.

Faithful

"Cheat on my wife." ~ cov3rtOps

Kill On Sight...

"Running into a massive spider in Australia." ~ ghostiesontoasties

"As an Australian, it depends on the spider. The massive ones are usually huntsmen and they're okay. It's the small, colourful ones you want to watch for - at least three are in my area that are Kill On Sight if they ever get inside." ~ Ametalia

"As someone in Australia, I try my hardest and sometimes I fail unfortunately. But I haven't seen the worst and pray I never do." ~ UpOxygen

Too Gross

"Experience a degloving injury. Usually stuck in machinery. It’s why things like lathes warn against loose clothing." ~ Crott117

"When I worked at a vets, unbeknown to a driver, a cat was under the bonnet of their car. Ignition on, screams and a horrified person and messed up cat. Immediate PTS upon arrival. I can do gore but degloving injuries are beyond messed up." ~ IwantedBeatsteak

No Tony!

"Have children." ~ WrestlingWoman

"Came here to say that. When I say 'I don't want to have kids,' people assume I am ambivalent about that matter. No, Tony, I don't want to have them as much as I don't want to cut off my own leg with a butter knife, thank you." ~ CarolynEarle

Sober

"Hard drugs. I do not need meth and heroin in my life." ~ SconiGrower

Well at least others have some good sense as well. The drug avoidance should be a #1 for all.

Bad Air

"Hot air balloons. Never." ~ K-Kraft

No Pushing

"Giving a non C-section birth." ~ cellsnek

I've been told many times by women who have experienced both that no sane woman would choose to have a baby by c-section. However, if you need one, that's another story and that's why the procedure exists in the first place." ~ notthesedays

Deep Below

"Go into an underwater cave. Miss me with that crap!" ~ 4Me2knowDammit

"The most dangerous water way in UK. Literally a fast wide river that turns 90 degrees so it's a few feet wide and 150 deep. Scary. The word is the survival rate for any animal who goes in is zero." ~ bakerboyuk

Falling!!

"See skydiving was something I have always wanted to do. However, today I found my self scrolling through about 10 videos of parachutes failing and now it is one of my greatest fears." ~ rocjustbus1984

"I stayed on a farm in Texas for a while that was right next to a skydiving place. It was funny to hear the people screaming on their way down. Until the day I heard screaming that sounded very different than the usual, and I looked up to see a guy tangled in the lines of a half-deployed chute."

"I watched long enough to realize it wasn't going to open any more than it already was, and ran inside and blasted music and tried to pretend I hadn't just seen that. There was no skydiving nearby again until after I left, at least several months. I think the guy lived but his back was broken." ~ t_portch

Live Fully

Happy Star Wars Characters GIF by LEGO Giphy

"Have a job that consumes my life and defines my identity. Life's too short for that nonsense." ~ smooth_grooves

I just want to live, without major injury. Why do things to hinder that? Be careful out there.

When you're working with kids, you never know what you're going to be dealing with on a daily basis. Are you going to have the delicate sweethearts, opening their hearts to learn?

Or are you going to be dealing with a sinister group of bee wranglers, who have suddenly set up a black market bee ring througout the school?

Yes. That's a real thing that happened.

Abduction remains to be a horrific crime that can typically happen to women and children.

Adulthood has been pretty nice, I have to admit. I quite like it. But it isn't always easy and some lessons are more difficult to learn than others.

It's so important to learn how to budget, for instance, because being an adult can get expensive. Between rent, food, utilities, and other odds and ends, you'd be shocked how quickly money flies out the window. Understanding this (and keeping an eye on your finances) pays dividends in the long run.

But that's also assuming things go well or smoothly – unexpected expenses arise and those come with their own consequences.

People shared their thoughts after Redditor FrequentPilot5243 asked the online community,

"What is an adult problem no one prepared you for?"
