Some people are just rotten to the core. We can't explain it and we can't fix it.

What's most disturbing is when we learn this truth about someone we've known for quite some time.

But more often than not, people will show their true dark colors from the jump.


Redditor TheReal5thBeatle wanted to hear about the times people have been spurned onto rage due to the actions of another.

They asked:

"What did someone do to make you hate them instantly?"

People who abuse the elderly and disabled.

You have to be a special kind of rotting feces to do that.

We're all going to be old one day, if we're lucky.

What goes around...

What a prat...

"I was dating a man i had only recently met and I had finally invited him to my house. We were in the garden and there’s a frog that hides down the side of the wall, he’s always lived there. I showed him where to look and see the frog peering out. He got his drink of coke and threw it on the frog and started laughing as if it was funny. I threw him out and rinsed the frog with water. He couldn’t understand why I was upset and why I had blocked him. What a prat." ~ squirreltrebuchet

Leave him alone!

"We have this gentle, older autistic guy in town who is like a giant toddler and we all kinda keep an eye out for him. A guy comes into the place I work and starts talking about how he will glue quarters to the ground just to watch this (adult) kid try to pick them up. And just generally talking crap about him."

"And idk you have to be a special kind of a piece of garbage to do that to this guy, he wears animal onesies and is innocent as all heck. So that was an instant hate. Just a sweet guy who has no family so we watch out for him as a town." ~ Reddit

Aim Please

"Peed all over my toilet seat." ~ Jazz7770

"My old roommate’s boyfriends would do this all the time! And there would be pee along the sides of the toilet and floor. She said it was okay because guys have a really hard time aiming, so we shouldn’t make a fuss about it." ~ cooldart61

Liar

"Demanded to speak to my manager and lied saying I swore at him and called him names. Another customer defended me and told them to look at the camera footage." ~ Katiedidnt1989

No no ma'am.

Try again.

We got you on camera!

I hate retail.

EVIL MOM

"I was walking through an airport terminal when I heard a woman tell the child in her stroller “THIS IS EXACTLY WHY NO ONE LOVES YOU11” I still think about that kid." ~ greatuncletubercle

Disgust

"She kept insulting her friend in front of me. I think she thought it was cute or something. And it was clear her friend was feeling uncomfortable about it, even at one point telling her to stop, which just made her repeatedly insult her more. Now whenever she comes by to talk I get this shiver of disgust down my spine." ~ stuartullman

When in Psych

"Back when I was starting out as hospital security we came into shift briefing. Outgoing supervisor informs us that a team member is in psych. He wouldn't put up with any jokes or any bullshit about it or he would get you fired. I respected that because I didn't like this supervisor."

"Then his supervisor came in. Started treating it like it was the funniest thing in the world to have a guard in psych. Him and the lower supervisor (who had just gone on a rant about how he wouldn't stand for this kind of thing) were laughing their asses off about it."

"I have my own mental health issues and I knew every guard present, if suffering a mental health crisis, would no longer trust coming in to the hospital for help for fear of ridicule. Hated the ranking supervisor for that and reaffirmed my dislike of the clearly spineless lower supervisor." ~ LordCaptain

Money Lies

"She called me and begged to borrow some money from me and her brother without her husband knowing. She claimed it was for bills and groceries but it was all for booze and meth. I just casually mentioned them paying us back to her husband and he had no idea what I was even talking about. It was all news to him. They made more money than my husband and I at the time, but she was constantly asking us for more money. And she always tried to make it out like I was the problem for seeing right through her bullcrap." ~ hairnetcouture

We Hate Justine!

"Laughed at my budgie dying. I still hate that witch. More than 13 years later. F**k you Justine you heartless witch." ~ Smarmy_Marmy01

That Woman

"There was this woman at an old job I had, now she wasn't the greatest but I never really hated her. She was the type to bully people verbally in the work place with rumors and snide comments. She once brought a coworker to tears. She'd try to boss people around despite not have any position to do so."

"She wasn't a manager, same level as everyone else. She seemed to have a chip on her shoulder towards our manager more so than anyone else on the department. A young relative of our manager got terminally ill. A local charity was set up in shop to raise money to send her for treatment as it was her only chance."

"We all chipped in and encouraged other to do the same until one day all the charity boxes disappeared. Turns out this woman had made an accusation to head office that the it was all fake. That the money was just being pocketed by the manager."

"So to save any legal issues the company just stopped allowing the money to be raised on the property. They never reached their goal, the managers relative was only 12. She never got to see another birthday. Thats when I hated this woman and ill hate her until I can't hate anymore." ~ Persona_Insomnia

I wanna smack you!

"Friend of a friend came.out with us to a sports bar. Waitress gave him ranch instead of blue cheese for his wings and he screamed in her face. I payed my bill, gave her a really generous tip, and apologized for his behavior to her right in front of him. He just sneered at me as I left."

"Told my buddy to make sure me and that guy never saw each other again. Treating someone in a service job like shit is terrible. Doing it for an honest, simple to fix mistake is even worse. Never saw that guy again and I still wanna f**king smack his face." ~ offspring515

Not so Cheery

"Someone i used to know smacked their 2 year old really hard (like really freaking hard) in the face just because he accidentally spilled a bowl of cheerios (no milk) on the floor. Obviously the kid started to cry and i was was absolutely mortified." ~ lukas_the

Essential

"I was a waitress when a bunch of finance bros in a sports bar. One screamed at me and told me I was 'a useless piece of shit in this economy' and that I should get a REAL job. I was 19 and in Uni, but even if I chose waitressing as my life career, wait staff is F**KING ESSENTIAL TO THIS WORLD."

"How else are you going to go to a bar and vibe with your friends?!!! Like what the hell?! His buddy straight up told him to screw himself, chugged his beer, and handed me a 50$ bill and walked out." ~ nemo-notaclownfish

Barbs and Slings

"Insult me and threaten to take me to court because I wouldn’t cover up their own unethical behavior." ~ Hawk_Letov

Not my Cat!

"Friend came into my apartment and immediately kicked my cat. He's no longer my friend." ~ Vanguard050505

"I've done this but not on purpose. I went to my friends house and was walking across the living room. The cat walked across my path and I caused the cat to slide a good distance across the room."

"I told my friend immediately, he then asked me how much distance I got. I should say that the cat loved being slid across the room, I just did it unintentionally. I brought some cheap plastic bowling pins and now it's a game between them." ~ pi**buckit666

What's Your Sign?

"A coworker who asked me my zodiac sign and when I told them they got actually upset they weren't the only Capricorn at work anymore. She was 32 years old too!" ~ starshapedcookie

"People don’t age out of stupid." ~ squirrels33

"Part of becoming an adult, I’ve found, is the disappointment that comes with figuring out that some people just don’t f**king mature past their high school years." ~ Munchablesdelights

"Where are you going?"

"Smoked meth around a baby." ~ DerivationalMorpheme

"I hadn't seen my sister in a long time. She was a recovering crack addict (doing great so far) and we were in my basement talking with her baby in a carrier next to us. She pulls out some weed and asks if I wanted to smoke. I said 'Sure, let's go' and continued walking towards the door and she says 'Where are you going?' She ended up getting offended that I didn't want to smoke in the vicinity of a baby." ~ DrSomm

I Hate you Britney!

"Ripped my brother's hearing aids out of his ears, threw them in the bus trash and wouldn't let him get back there until we told the bus driver. 29 years later and I still hate your a**, Brittany D." ~ Potential_Expert3292

Bad Timing

"My cousin, who among many other sh**ty things she's done to me, announced to my grieving family (right after my pap died) that I was pregnant."

"1. Very bad timing..."

"2. That was MY news to share, and..."

"3. Nobody but my grandma was happy for me. It was extremely awkward and she (cousin) went on to keep doing other crap, until I cut her out of my life." ~ Abject_Presentation8

Some people just have no soul.

People Who've Survived Being Shot Explain What It Really Feels Like

It's another ordinary day in America.

So of course that means we've already had a mass shooting or two before brunch.

And aside from the mass shootings, the number of single gunshot wounds or deaths is too high to count.

So let's discuss the aftermath.

Let's hear from the people who have faced the barrel of a loaded gun, or were just a casualty going about their day.

What happens after the bullet lands?

***CAUTION - SENSITIVE MATERIAL AHEAD - TRIGGER WARNING***

Redditor notaninterestingacc wanted to hear from the people who have lived the nightmare. They asked:

"Gunshot survivors of Reddit - What does it feel like to get shot?"

It's never attractive to gloat.

Nor does superiority ever come off as a particularly attractive attribute.

But, consciously or not, some people speak or behave in a way that immediately suggests that they think they deserve to be treated differently, i.e better than others.

Or that they believe they simply are better than other people.

A recent Redditor was curious what sort of behavior struck other people as elitist or arrogant behavior by asking:

"What screams "I am entitled"?"

There's something about the woods that creeps me out. Listen here, people: I'm a city guy. The idea of getting lost out there freaks me out. No thank you. I wasn't made for that. The rest of you who like to go camping and stuff? You do you. I'll stick with my running water.

But maybe I've seen too many horror movies. After all, if I saw some creepy stuff in the woods I'd definitely run in the other direction. And so would you, right? Right?

People shared their best stories with us after Redditor shantics asked the online community,

"What have you seen in the woods that you can’t explain?"

We're all not geniuses.

Everybody has varying degrees of knowledge and brain power.

And that is ok.

Though some of us are really lacking in any sense and every once and awhile people like to sugarcoat that fact when they call us out.

"Bless your heart."

That's a big one in the South. Means... "I like you, but Lord are you missing marbles."
