People Break Down Which Things They're Absolutely Tired Of Explaining To Other People

Some people just don't listen.

While others have trouble opening their minds even the tiniest bit.

Those kinds of people tend not to understand how certain people live their lives or even the decisions they make.

As a result, many people have to explain, or even defend, certain things about themselves repeatedly.

And while nearly everyone should be proud of who they are, and have no need to explain or apologize for themselves, it can get exhausting having to explain this to people over and over again.

Particularly to the same people.


Redditor Rare_Gas_ was curious to hear the things people were exhausted of having to explain over and over again, leading them to ask:

None Of Their Business!!

Some people are just so obstinate and set in their ways that they simply can't accept what they hear.

If we think really about it, maybe THEY should be the ones explaining themselves...

When Americans visit a foreign country, they tend to notice immediate cultural differences from the minute they step off the plane.

Unique bathroom designs, how you might have to be more specific when ordering coffee in Australia, how many businesses in Spain tend to shut down for a few hours to take a siesta.

Needless to say, this goes both ways, as when people from all over the world visit the United States, they tend to be surprised and amazed by a number of things.

Ranging from the amusing, such as portion sizes and ineffective tea brewing (at least for the Brits) to the truly baffling (HEALTHCARE).

We've all found ourselves annoyed by the ticks or habits of others.

Some of these are fairly common, such as chewing with your mouth open, cracking your knuckles, or whether or not they pronounce the "T" in often.

Some habits are a bit more unusual, though.

Only the people guilty of possessing these habits might not realize that they're unusual until they are told by someone else that practically no one, or literally no one, else does them.

It's an eye-opening, sometimes humiliating discovery.

My entire childhood was comprised of watching Hollywood movies about high school.

From High School Musical, I learned that theater is uncool and no jock would be caught dead in a musical. The Breakfast Club made me think Saturday detention wasn't so bad. I learned that teachers can be manipulated from Clueless, and Mean Girls showed me how divided high school kids are based on their cliques.

When I actually started high school, none of those lessons helped me. I knew several jocks who were talented musicians and starred in every musical. I never had Saturday detention, but I heard enough horror stories to know it was awful. Teachers are not fools who bend to a student's will, and cliques are almost a myth. Yes, the cheerleaders hang out with other cheerleaders, but they don't dump food all over the honors kids.

Very few high school movies reflect the actual high school experience. Redditors know this all to well and were ready to share their stories.

People Describe The Dumbest Things They've Ever Seen Someone Spend Money On

I love money.

If I had an endless supply, I might throw it away with abandon.

But I am not blessed with that level of abundance.

Some people really take spending to an extreme.

To a point where maybe others should be in charge of their purse and wallet.
