You know what would be great?

If society could just stop with arbitrary dress codes. If you're not working with the public, why should you have to dress up so much? If you're a police officer, then it makes sense that you'd wear a uniform that identifies you as a police officer. If you're Ted from IT who sits in the backroom all day, I really don't see why you have to come in every day in a suit and tie.

Let's just toss them out, shall we?

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor Levels2ThisBrush asked the online community,

"What should be socially acceptable but isn't?"

"Leaving the office..."

"Leaving the office whenever you've finished your tasks for the day."

This is why I'm so glad remote work is the new office.

"And yet, I get it!"

"Taking off sick from work, WITHOUT giving an invasive reason. I supervise a small team and so I see all the OOO emails, and for gods sake I want people to PLEASE not feel the need to explain in detail what kind of diarrhea is afflicting them, or how bad their period cramps are, or how much bad sushi they ate the night before. Just say “I’m under the weather, I won’t be online today.”"

"And yet, I get it! I do it too! I feel guilty or like I’ll be looked at with suspicion if my reason for taking off isn’t sufficiently debilitating enough!"

"But… we need to stop this. As a manager I don’t care, I don’t THINK the people above me who are also on these emails care… let’s just all agree to take sick days without any details from now on!"

imnotwallaceshawn

I do not miss my retail days where I had to organise someone to cover me and beg on bended knee.

"Cashiers or workers who don’t need to be standing all day not having a stool or chair."

Lavatories

Another thing I do not miss from my retail days. Having to stand for hours and hours only to come home with my feet killing me was not fun.

"Prices on apartments..."

"Prices on apartments and their respectable reasons for such price directly on their websites or advertising without the need for a tour or any secrecy."

Spiceinvader3124

I always assume if I have to ask the price I probably can’t afford it.

"Being quiet..."

"Being quiet/not wanting to engage in conversation all the time."

[deleted]

In Finland, if somebody tries to talk to you, they are probably a tourist.

"Choosing not to..."

"Choosing not to have toxic family members in your life."

[deleted]

It feels very liberating once you accept that you don't have to put up with it.

"Employees..."

"Employees calling customers out in public for being a**holes."

gameboy1001

Absolutely. Many customers get away with treating employees horribly because they know they can do it without any pushback... most of the time.

"The fact that I sometimes..."

"The fact that I sometimes need to take my insulin in public. No, Karen, I am not doing drugs, I need to live."

blubberwinx

You’re getting that sweet sweet insulin high… the high of being not-dead.

"Afternoon naps."

"Afternoon naps. I’m on team nap. Give me 25 minutes to charge up and I’ll give you back 3 hours of high quality work. Everyone wins. Plus I go home with extra energy instead of dead tired."

Governmentwatchlist

Short naps don't work for me. I can't do a 25 min recharge. When I take a nap it needs to be like a solid 2 hours

"Speak up!"

"Salary transparency. For some reason, in the US, there’s a taboo or stigma around discussing one’s salary. This should be done openly and freely, with zero embarrassment or judgment. The only winners from avoiding these conversations are the corporations that are able to pay people differently for the same roles. Speak up!"

Jumping_Bear

The "for some reason" you're referring to is simply propaganda on behalf of corporations.

It's evident that something's got to change around here, and we're mad as hell and we're not going to take it anymore!

People Explain Which Places Everyone Should Avoid On Vacation

With things inching closer and closer back to normal after three years of the global pandemic, people are more eager than ever to go on a vacation.

And the possibilities of where to travel are endless.

Be it a soothing beach vacation in Turks and Caicos, enjoying the romantic hustle and bustle of Paris, or letting one's imagination run wild at an amusement park.

But are there some places one should make a point of avoiding as a vacation destination?

Be it for political unrest, unsafe conditions, or simply because there isn't much to do.

Redditor Blowmansalad was curious to know the answer, resulting in their taking to Reddit to ask:

"Where should you NOT go on vacation?"

People Break Down The Most Satisfying TV Finales Of All-Time

TV leaves a special impact on the viewer, sometimes more than movies.

It's because we live with these characters.

We take several journeys with them, not just a quick two hour ride.

That's why the finales are so special.

They can complete us or leave us broken for life.

Let's discuss the good.

Redditor KvK_07 wanted to discuss some of the best endings to television shows we love.They asked:

"Which show had a proper satisfying ending?"
Keep reading...Show less

Movies. Stories. Tears.

All three are a perfect fit.

Film and entertainment allow us freedom to feel everything.

As Nicole Kidman says in her infamous AMC commercial, "heartbreak feels good in a place like this."

Maybe that's why we're meant to watch in the dark.

Redditor rollneers02 wanted everyone to fess and chat about what works of cinema have left us in tears.They asked:

"What’s a movie that’s genuinely made you cry?"

Oh, bros...

What a quirky group of humans you are.

Maybe we, the world, give y'all a bad rap.

We're dying to know what you share with one another.

One Redditorwanted all the 'Bros' out there to share with us.They asked:

"Men of Reddit, what’s your best bro-tip?"
