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