Buckle up everyone, we're about to hop aboard the feels train.

The human animal seems to just be naturally interested in a good old fashioned adorable love story. People meeting and falling in love is always great! There are few things sweeter than listening to someone talking about how their parents met. Parents explaining how they met to their kids is so cute that it's literally a hit TV show. (Admit it, How I Met Your Mother is one of the greatest non-hosting uses of Neil Patrick Harris.) So imagine the cuteness that happens when an adult child recounts the tale of how their parents met - instant "aww" factor, right?

One Reddit user posted a question that honestly had nothing to do with love, but pretty quickly had thousands of people oohing and ahhing over a garbage man's love story.

The original question asked users, specifically "garbage men", to share the most memorable things they'd found in the trash. The responses ranged from mild to wild - with your expected amount of kittens and prosthetic limbs. Then user Deanjarois spoke up. They didn't work in waste management, but their father did and so childhood was filled with hearing a story about one very particular and precious trash-find. It turns out their parents "found" one another in the trash.

Here's the story:

That comment became a turning point for the entire post. People couldn't get enough of how cute this was! A few people had some followup questions, which the trash-baby (yup, that's what we're running with) was happy to answer. That turned into a cute little mini side-story of it's own. Apparently, trash-baby's mother had been watching the garbage truck for months. She would sit at the window to wait, rearranged her schedule to make sure she was home on trash days, and was generally going about redefining "extra." She even went so far as to make sure she was the one who threw out the trash, but only right as the truck pulled up. Her parents watched her do this not just for days, but months. She did this for months, you guys.

The thirst was real.

Finally, they had enough. One day when the truck rolled up, she ran outside because she once again "forgot" to throw out the trash. Her dad couldn't take it anymore. He waited for her to walk outside, and then locked the door behind her. Dad refused to let her back in until she made her move.

People absolutely fell in love with the story!

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
