Have you ever just looked at a headline, video, or someone right in front of you and wondered, "What is wrong with you?"

There have been some incredibly disturbing things in the news cycle these days, especially as everyone has a camera in their pocket, ready to capture the latest viral video.

When it comes to things that might make you lose your faith in humanity, we want to know the most recent moment that brought people to question.


Redditor raswerty asked:

"What is your latest 'what the f*ck is wrong with people' moment?"

You might start pulling your hair out at some of these.

Seemingly ungrateful.

"I go to a university where students ride the bus free (if they show their ID), and the general public can ride them for $1."

"So today this kid boards the bus, and tells the driver he lost his student ID. The driver says sorry, but he'd have to pay a dollar to ride. The guy didn't have a dollar, though, and was about to get off, when this very nice girl gets up and pays his fare for him so he could ride."

"The f*cker didn't even acknowledge her. No thank you, no smile, nothing. He just walked to the back of the bus and sat down. He didn't even make eye contact with this girl who just totally selflessly paid a dollar so he could ride. I really wanted to punch him in his stupid, ungrateful face."

"I wonder if he's ungrateful or if he has social anxiety or some other social/communication issue."

- Metriculous

"Kid could have all sorts of reasons for why he did that. Could be he is just ungrateful. Could be he has horrible social anxiety. Could be on the autism spectrum and has no clue about social interactions. Could have been on meth etc. There are tons of legitimate excuses for why someone behaves this way. Some people are just entitled but if you can't afford a dollar for the bus or have to think about that sort of small payment your life is already difficult."

"I am not attempting to justify him just present points of view that need to considered when looking at the situation."

Please don't take this advice.

"Earlier this month, a professor of mine alluded to the fact that a girl in one of his other periods is a dumba**. I asked her about it, and she replied 'I'm smart! I don't know why he's doing this! I only said that people should drink rubbing alcohol instead of vodka, because it's, like, way cheaper.'"

"Just watched an intervention of a guy who drank watered down sanitizer cause it was cheap."

People treating food service workers terribly.

"Seeing that video of an angry customer throwing her refunded soup in the face of a level-headed work member."

- Nonspecal

"Recently saw a video of a homeless man in a restaurant throw the (free) coffee he was given by a waitress back into her face. Absolutely disgusting."

Forgetting your sibling's birthday.

"I have two sisters and one brother. All three forgot my birthday. One week later I held my birthday party. My brother didn't show up. Yeah, that was pretty disappointing."

- Inside-Fly4901

"I have a brother who didn't call me on my birthday and I thought, well, he forgot. It happens. He usually calls and is very sweet and apologetic the next day or so. Nothing this year. My bday was in the summer and he never did call me. For that or for anything. The relationship there has been strained anyway and I guess it's just... full-on estranged now."

"My sister who is no longer with us also frequently did stuff on my birthday to put the attention on herself so yeah, I feel for you about siblings tanking your bday in one way or another."

Okay, this is just bizarre.

"Hubby had one yesterday. Walked into the grocery store, back to the deli. Wants some ham. Girl is there. With a f*cking bearded dragon on her shoulder. No leash. No cage. Just a f*cking lizard on her shoulder."

"And she's petting it. Then touching the food products on display. Then the lizard. Then the food. Hubby noped out of there without buying anything. WTF, lady?!"

Threatening to sue.

"Some guy threatened my wife at her work with, 'I'll sue you for racism!' Because she wouldn't sell him cigarettes without ID."

- HawaiianShirtsOR

"Lol had an employee try and sue our company for racism. After she went through training, she did a no/call no show on her first shift. She calls back a few days later asking when her next shift is, and the manager informed her she didn't call or show up for her first shift so would be terminating her. She called us racist and tried to sue."

Creepy Uber drivers.

"I've had it happen waaaay too many times where Uber drivers ask me way too many personal questions. Where do you live? Where do you work? What do you do for a living? Do you live alone? Do you have a boyfriend? Why don't you have a boyfriend? What company do you work for? What hours do you work?"

"For the love of God, STOP. I'm not saying people aren't allowed to make conversation, but it's not impossible to avoid being creepy."

- Lost_Condas

"My Uber driver today was super creepy. Friendly at first. Started hinting he wanted to smoke with me, asked if I lived alone, kept talking as I was trying to get out, eventually I was just like "BYE!" and slammed the door. You never know where the line is between "Jeez he was trying to be friendly, what a b*tch' and 'She should have known, what a dumb bitch.'"

The Astroworld Festival.

"Travis Scott and everything that falls out of his mouth."

- server_busy

"His fans stuck up for him. There was a 9 year old who died there."

- DogsAreCool69420

"When I read about the 9 year old who died at that concert gone wrong in Houston Texas. WTF takes a child that young to a concert?"

- dowtimer

"The 'Let's go Brandon' thing."

"If you don't like Biden, that's cool. But this just seems like the stuff little kids do to 'get away' with saying naughty words."

- rock_and_rolo

"Saw it on a billboard yesterday. Someone actually paid for that."

- myfriendrichard

"Saw a politician spell it out with deer turds."

"His follows took this as a good thing.....and not the oddity of a grown adult rearranging deer sh*t to mock a president."

- ShannonMoore1Fan

There's plenty of reasons someone might be rude, ungrateful, or acting inappropriate, but unless you talk to them you may never know why they're doing the things they do.

Unfortunately, we're just left with questions.

Dream of the sea of lights, of the opportunities, the nightlife, and all of the things you've been dreaming of living in your adult life since you were a kid. Being in a city as an adult can afford you those opportunities.

But oftentimes the city will just afford you more expensive housing with no real way to keep up your standard and quality of life. Unless you make major budget cuts, you might often find yourself at odds with your own city, and growing to dislike it.

Sound familiar to anyone?

Have you ever wondered what job people would pick if they knew they'd be financially stable?

Not rich; we're not talking "retire-in-luxury to Buenos Aires" level coin; just comfortable and with growth potential if you're smart about things.

If any job in the world put you at the precipice of stability - what would you *choose* to do?
