I once met a guy who, by all accounts, appeared to have given up. And by that, I mean that they had pretty much decided that life basically ended in the 1970s and early 1980s. He had no interest in modern technology, was remarkably out of the loop when it came to technology or even current events.

This was all very frustrating to witness, but he was actually proud of himself! Proud to not know much–if anything–about the modern world. (And then he complained about how he kept having trouble finding a job.)

It was quite the flex–an unimpressive one at that.

People shared some of their thoughts with us after Redditor metallicmuffin asked the online community,'

"What unimpressive things are people idiotically proud of?"

"Missing breaks..."

"Missing breaks at work for a company that wouldn’t care if they died the next day."

Lavenderviolets

This is a big one. It's not cute. Take your break! There's more to life than work!

"Not eating..."

"Not eating any vegetables. Known a few people state it as if it's some kind of achievement giving themselves constipation."

tradandtea123

Knew somebody like this. They wanted to go out on a date.

We did not go out on a date.

"Going into work while sick. Had a coworker who bragged on social media about having strep throat, but was still working because she 'values hard work.'"

Marshmallows_Skies

Some people appear to have missed the memo that risking other people's health is not a bragging right.

"I know people..."

"Drinking a lot. I know people, grown @ss people in their late 20s, who will brag about passing out on their lawns because they couldn’t make it from the car to the front door."

metallicmuffin

To be fair, they're in their 20s and most people are idiots then. They might grow out of it!

"I once had..."

"I once had a coworker brag about how dark his pee is."

[deleted]

Are you seriously telling us that they bragged about their kidneys not working correctly?

"I've heard that..."

"Driving better when drunk. I’ve heard that ridiculous statement more times than I should."

TrinitRosas

If some people seriously believe that, then they should not be allowed to drive.

"I overheard..."

"I overheard a co-worker recently brag to a girl that he'd already had COVID three times and during his most recent bout, he went to the gym every day that he had it."

the_chandler

There are so, so many things wrong with that person's statement. Can you imagine? "Sure, I got COVID, but at least I didn't miss leg day!"

"I keep hearing people..."

"Not being able to cook. I keep hearing people bragging about how the only thing they can do is boil water."

urinmyspot

If you've made it to adulthood and you don't know how to cook for yourself, there's something gravely wrong with this picture.

"Nothing surprises me..."

"Nothing surprises me more than when people are proud of their ignorance."

GoodAndBluts

Knowledge is no guarantee of wisdom but prideful ignorance is proof of its absence.

"I worked with a guy..."

"I worked with a guy who, otherwise very smart, was extremely proud of the fact that he could remove the foil from the neck of a wine bottle without cutting it. He brought it up so many times I lost count. I just let him have it, though, because he seemed to need it."

dvicci

Of all the things in this thread this is the most reasonable thing to be proud of.

Let's face it, it seems like a lot of people have made over-compensating a part of their personalities.

Sadly, they don't even seem to be doing that all too well, which means we'll continue to be largely unimpressed.

People Share Their Favorite Curse World Alternatives

People have different levels of tolerance when it comes to profanity.

And some people can't stand the sound of rude or vulgar language so much that they can't bring themselves to say these naughty words themselves.

But when anyone reaches a high level of anger or frustration, they still might need a verbal outlet.

And instead find themselves coming up with an alternative word, which helps them release their anger, but won't offend any nearby ears.

Redditor No-Citron5628 was curious to hear people's favorite alternatives to curse words, leading them to ask:

"What is your best swear word alternative?"

When we think of iconic movie quotes, there are several which come instantly to mind.

"Here's looking at you, kid."

"Love is never having to say you're sorry."

"I'm gonna make you an offer you can't refuse."

Appropriately, the ones that might haunt us the most, are those delivered by villains, who linger in our memories not only by their creepy attire and presence but by their devious choice of words.

Frightening us long after the credits stop rolling.

Redditor N_the_character was eager to hear what the Reddit community considered the best quotes from both Hollywood's legendary villains, as well as some lesser-known antagonists from film, TV, and video games, leading them to ask:

A true villain will have you quaking in your boots with just one look.

But it's with their words that they really get you.

And how they instantly go from being merely villains, to legends.

Grow up.

People say the darndest and nastiest things pretty often.

I feel like I would prefer someone who doesn't realize it because the alternative is evil.

Saying inappropriate things on purpose involves malicious intent.

No matter... wrong is wrong.

Watch your mouth.

Redditor Ok_Context_7495 wanted to know what sort of nonsense has fallen out of other people's mouths, that left us shook. They asked:

"What’s the most messed up/inappropriate thing that someone’s casually said to you?"
