Admit it, you wanted to be a veterinarian when you were a kid.

So many of us did. We loved playing with puppies and the idea of kitty band-aids and checking a birds temperature just seemed like the perfect career.

But the reality is much different. Being a vet is a challenge. You lose sleep, your social life is sacrificed, people and animals are depending on you to somehow take care of a patient who can't tell you what's wrong.


But as intense as all of that can be, that's not even the worst part.

One woman turned to Twitter to share what her vet told her the hardest part of the job is:


Giphy


Twitter just can't handle it.





It's heartbreaking, but it's sparked a conversation.

Lots of people shared stories about how they stayed by their pet's side.







One person was still upset that he didn't have the chance to be by his pet's side as a kid.



Interestingly, not everyone was so ready to side with this mindset.



We'll just be over here hugging our dogs while sobbing and listening to Sarah McLachlan if you need us.

I have a few wealthy friends and I've seen a thing or two that has made my eyes pop out of my head. Let's just say that the priorities of a wealthy person and a dude who has never broken six figures are entirely different. But that doesn't compare to working for the fabulously rich. A friend of mine was a nanny for a super rich family for several years and described the lavish trips she took with them (and how picky and out of touch they were, too).

People told us their own stories after Redditor NeighborhoodTrolley asked the online community,

"People who cater to the super rich: What things have you seen?"

Oh the matters of the heart are just never going to be easy. Love seems to be a never ending mess. I've dated a lot and can attest that the percentage of bad to good is 70/30. And that may be generous math.

I've heard about people fighting on dates, setting fire to the restaurant, discovering hidden identities and dramas I thought only ever occurred on daytime television.

I use to believe the biggest fear about dating was that the other person may turn out to be a serial killer, but they at least tend to show you a respectable time before they strike.

Oof. Let's see who has been left scarred by the hunt.

Redditor u/givemeyourfreefood wanted everyone to share the stories that almost made them re-think searching for love, by asking:

What's the worst date you ever had?
