"What is one thing you will never, ever do?" –– This was today's burning question from Redditor FoodMaster122, who probably wanted to commiserate with some like-minded people.

You see, while most of us are in quarantine, we have a lot of time on our hands. We can learn another language. We can perfect other skills, too. Oh, and we can work on ourselves and figure out what we'll never do... no matter what.

You might have known certain things about yourself before you were locked down, true.

But honestly, these are just principles. Read on.


"My brain power..."

Imagine that the audience is naked while giving a presentation. My brain power is trying to keep the words going, I don't have cells on the side for that kind of imagination.

"I have negative desire..."

Heroin.

I was on morphine after an operation and hated it. I have negative desire to try heroin.

"Treat any retail..."

Treat any retail or service employees like garbage. After working retail I couldn't bring myself to do it.

"My grandpa..."

Giphy

Smoke a cigarette. My grandpa smoked 3 packs a day starting when he was 12 years old until he was 50. He then "quit" and only smoked two packs a day. He lived for another decade or so before he unsurprisingly died from lung cancer. Seeing what he went through in the last few months was enough to convince me to never touch a cigarette. His lungs were so bad, when the doctors diagnosed him the doctor legitimately said, "smoke them if you got them, because you might as well enjoy your last little bit of time." I wish he could have quit for real in time for it to make a difference.

"I had it happen..."

Cheat on any of my GF's. I had it happen to me in a bad way in a 4 year relationship and I know the pain, so I vowed to never do that to anyone ever.

"Too many bad genes..."

Have biological children. Too many bad genes that I would rather spare someone else from inheriting.

"This tells us..."

When another driver is trying to do me a favor that I deem safe, I'll never accept it/do it (if I do it at all--again, it has to appear overwhelmingly safe) without giving them a wave and saying thanks.

A (generally) safe example: changing lanes was ALWAYS a problem back when I was riding in big rigs. We sincerely appreciate the people in the lane we're merging into who see our turn signals on and flash their lights at us. This tells us, "we see you, you have plenty of room, and we are not going to be the typical prick who demonstrates that they want to die rn by speeding up. We got you. Go ahead and get over if everything else looks good." If you do that for a trucker and they flash their lights back, that was their way of saying thanks!!

"A broken rubber..."

Bungee jump. A broken rubber brought me into this world and I'm sure as hell not gonna let one take me out.

"101 days..."

Start drinking again. 101 days sober here. Wheeeeeeeeeeee!!!

"Granted..."

Cheat on someone. Granted, I'm sure quite a load of people who ended up doing so said this to themselves, but beyond the moral grounds of it being wrong, the thought of doing so and going back to your SO, dropping the news, watching their reaction, and realizing you've made someone that close to you completely lose trust in you sounds absolutely miserable. And I certainly wouldn't want to be on the other end of that situation either.

Do you have something to confess to George? Text "Secrets" or "🤐" to +1 (310) 299-9390 to talk him about it.

How you approach life's many trials and tribulations can say a lot about who you are. However, many of us don't necessarily learn some lessons so easily.

Life is complicated. It's messy. Few, if any things, go according to plan. On top of that, sometimes the way we handle our relationships or our obligations might not be the most healthy one.

You live, you learn... or so the saying goes.

People shared their stories after Redditor ryanblumenow asked the online community,

"What did you learn at great personal cost?"

Is there anyone who loved high school?

High school is a disaster. That is true for like... 95% of us.

it's like being branded. "I survived high school because of this!!"

The past is never really past, is it? What did you see?

Redditor HelloProxima wanted to go back and visit the teenage years, by asking:

"What is the most f**ked up thing that happened in your high school?"

You're hungry one night, so you order food. You select your items, go to place your order, and see that the order has an extra $15 in fees tacked on to it, and that's not even including tip!

Believe it or not, there was a time before delivery services. You can very easily just call the restaurant you want and place the order directly. It's pretty easy–and you and the restaurant get to avoid the middle man.

But delivery services have become so ubiquitous over the years that many of us just put up with it. They're legitimate services but honestly, when you see the final price tag, how could you not feel like you've been totally scammed?

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

"What is a legitimate product / service that still feels like a scam?"

When you really think about it, childhood is actually just rife with trauma.

The things we see as children, are things we are never going to escape. And nobody fully prepares you for it.

Every child born should be assigned a therapist along with a pediatrician.

Life is going to bombard us with memories we'll never unsee, because the actions of humans are random and as a child we're forced to watch.

The mark is left. So let's hear about some trauma.

Redditor Banjoman653 wanted to hear from everybody willing to share some childhood tales, by asking:

"What’s a really f**ked up thing you’ve witnessed as a kid but didn’t realise it was until you were older?"
