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."

- qt-uwu

"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."

- ne0rmatrix

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.'"

- on-the-h

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

- Bopper34

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

You can learn about the worker and the angry customer here.

"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."

- ThrowRARAw

"Saw a guy screaming at a waitress because she got his coffee order wrong…. I get that’s it’s frustrating but be an adult and deal with insignificant problems better then that. F*cking child."

- Redditor

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."

- blackswan45

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?!"

- Sillycats2

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."

- Bopper34

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 b*tch.'"

- DelsMagicFishies

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

People Break Down The Nicest Celebrities They've Ever Met | George Takei’s Oh Myyy

They always say, "don't meet your heroes." But here's the thing, sometimes your celebrities are actually just chill, normal people who are overjoyed to meet ...

"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

Snapchat is more important.

"My cousin just recently died of Covid, and of course like any person would, would be absolutely devastated."

"I was off Snapchat for 4 days to go and see family, and one of my friends texted me calling me a b*tch because I haven’t texted them in over 2 days. After I explained that one of my close family members died, they called me a f*cking bitch because apparently, streaks mattered a lot more."

"I've left them on opened for 3 weeks lmao."

- tydal-wave

Social media getting a little out of hand.

"Grown adults advocating for bullying on social media."

- pingudrip

"Any time they dox other people or try to get them fired because of petty reasons. The reason usually is something insanely dumb like they made a stupid joke on social media 8 years ago. I’ve noticed a few occasions where the people doing this had old stuff from their own past dug up and thrown in their faces. Can’t say I felt bad for them."

- BurghFinsFan

Anti-vaxxers latest trend.

"Bathing in borax to 'draw out the vaccine.'"

"How did we reach this point."

- Taleya

Swearing at kids.

"I was walking to my car from Target. There was a mom and her kid walking a bit ahead of me. The kid looked maybe 4-5? He ran ahead of his mom (not in the path of traffic, just towards their car) and she told him to stop a few times and then just let loose this horrible, profanity-ridden tirade on this little boy, 'F*cking listen to me when I f*cking tell you to stop, get your little sh*te a** back here...' And it went on and on. I could still hear her when I got in my car yelling and swearing at this kid."

"Best part? She looked heavily pregnant."

"Now I get trying to discipline your kid. I get that they have to learn safety in parking lots. I get that pregnant people can be cranky. But NONE of that gives you an excuse to talk to a kid like that. It was so damn trashy and I felt bad for the boy, he was obviously embarrassed and freaked out by it. All I could think as I drove away was how the kid probably didn't stand a chance in life and she's gonna have another one who she will undoubtedly treat the same way. Or worse, she'll favor it over that poor little boy."

"I wish people who can't behave like decent parents would just quit having kids."

- blackswan45

Oh, that's just mean.

"Watched a old friend of mine sneak up behind another student who was walking down the hallway with crutches, and my friend simply, grabbed one of the crutches and ran away with it, leaving the other student to trip and fall."

- BearIsBroken

"Not funny."

- pinkflower200

"This hits me right in the feels. I suggest you stop interacting with that friend as much."

- Chemical_Ad4589

Changing the project last minute.

"My group of friends decided to add someone who asked to be added to our group project. Upon finding out our presentation was over by 8 minutes and finding out her slides were the ones with the most time, she proceed to get defensive. She then changed all our slides the night before our presentation."

- pokegirl395

Oh, no.

"Overheard in a hospice ward 'Can't you do something to speed this up, like give her a lot more morphine? I only took a week off work.'"

- elementsofridiculous

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.

People Reveal The Weirdest Thing About Themselves

Reddit user Isitjustmedownhere asked: 'Give an example; how weird are you really?'

Let's get one thing straight: no one is normal. We're all weird in our own ways, and that is actually normal.

Of course, that doesn't mean we don't all have that one strange trait or quirk that outweighs all the other weirdness we possess.

For me, it's the fact that I'm almost 30 years old, and I still have an imaginary friend. Her name is Sarah, she has red hair and green eyes, and I strongly believe that, since I lived in India when I created her and there were no actual people with red hair around, she was based on Daphne Blake from Scooby-Doo.

I also didn't know the name Sarah when I created her, so that came later. I know she's not really there, hence the term 'imaginary friend,' but she's kind of always been around. We all have conversations in our heads; mine are with Sarah. She keeps me on task and efficient.

My mom thinks I'm crazy that I still have an imaginary friend, and writing about her like this makes me think I may actually be crazy, but I don't mind. As I said, we're all weird, and we all have that one trait that outweighs all the other weirdness.

Redditors know this all too well and are eager to share their weird traits.

It all started when Redditor Isitjustmedownhere asked:

"Give an example; how weird are you really?"

Can You See Why?

"I bought one of those super-powerful fans to dry a basement carpet. Afterwards, I realized that it can point straight up and that it would be amazing to use on myself post-shower. Now I squeegee my body with my hands, step out of the shower and get blasted by a wide jet of room-temp air. I barely use my towel at all. Wife thinks I'm weird."

– KingBooRadley


"In 1990 when I was 8 years old and bored on a field trip, I saw a black Oldsmobile Cutlass driving down the street on a hot day to where you could see that mirage like distortion from the heat on the road. I took a “snapshot” by blinking my eyes and told myself “I wonder how long I can remember this image” ….well."

– AquamarineCheetah

"Even before smartphones, I always take "snapshots" by blinking my eyes hoping I'll remember every detail so I can draw it when I get home. Unfortunately, I may have taken so much snapshots that I can no longer remember every detail I want to draw."

"Makes me think my "memory is full.""

Not Sure Who Was Weirder

– Frostygrunt


"I pace around my house for hours listening to music imagining that I have done all the things I simply lack the brain capacity to do, or in some really bizarre scenarios, I can really get immersed in these imaginations sometimes I don't know if this is some form of schizophrenia or what."

– RandomSharinganUser

"I do the same exact thing, sometimes for hours. When I was young it would be a ridiculous amount of time and many years later it’s sort of trickled off into almost nothing (almost). It’s weird but I just thought it’s how my brain processes sh*t."

– Kolkeia

If Only

"Even as an adult I still think that if you are in a car that goes over a cliff; and right as you are about to hit the ground if you jump up you can avoid the damage and will land safely. I know I'm wrong. You shut up. I'm not crying."

– ShotCompetition2593

Pet Food

"As a kid I would snack on my dog's Milkbones."

– drummerskillit

"Haha, I have a clear memory of myself doing this as well. I was around 3 y/o. Needless to say no one was supervising me."

– Isitjustmedownhere

"When I was younger, one of my responsibilities was to feed the pet fish every day. Instead, I would hide under the futon in the spare bedroom and eat the fish food."

– -GateKeep-

My Favorite Subject

"I'm autistic and have always had a thing for insects. My neurotypical best friend and I used to hang out at this local bar to talk to girls, back in the late 90s. One time he claimed that my tendency to circle conversations back to insects was hurting my game. The next time we went to that bar (with a few other friends), he turned and said sternly "No talking about bugs. Or space, or statistics or other bullsh*t but mainly no bugs." I felt like he was losing his mind over nothing."

"It was summer, the bar had its windows open. Our group hit it off with a group of young ladies, We were all chatting and having a good time. I was talking to one of these girls, my buddy was behind her facing away from me talking to a few other people."

"A cloudless sulphur flies in and lands on little thing that holds coasters."

"Cue Jordan Peele sweating gif."

"The girl notices my tension, and asks if I am looking at the leaf. "Actually, that's a lepidoptera called..." I looked at the back of my friend's head, he wasn't looking, "I mean a butterfly..." I poked it and it spread its wings the girl says "oh that's a BUG?!" and I still remember my friend turning around slowly to look at me with chastisement. The ONE thing he told me not to do."

"I was 21, and was completely not aware that I already had a rep for being an oddball. It got worse from there."

– Phormicidae

*Teeth Chatter*

"I bite ice cream sometimes."


"That's how I am with popsicles. My wife shudders every single time."


Never Speak Of This

"I put ice in my milk."


"You should keep that kind of thing to yourself. Even when asked."

Evened Up

"Whenever I say a word and feel like I used a half of my mouth more than the other half, I have to even it out by saying the word again using the other half of my mouth more. If I don't do it correctly, that can go on forever until I feel it's ok."

"I do it silently so I don't creep people out."

– LesPaltaX

"That sounds like a symptom of OCD (I have it myself). Some people with OCD feel like certain actions have to be balanced (like counting or making sure physical movements are even). You should find a therapist who specializes in OCD, because they can help you."

– MoonlightKayla

I totally have the same need for things to be balanced! Guess I'm weird and a little OCD!

Experiencing death is a fascinating and frightening idea.

Who doesn't want to know what is waiting for us on the other side?

But so many of us want to know and then come back and live a little longer.

It would be so great to be sure there is something else.

But the whole dying part is not that great, so we'll have to rely on other people's accounts.

Redditor AlaskaStiletto wanted to hear from everyone who has returned to life, so they asked:

"Redditors who have 'died' and come back to life, what did you see?"


Happy Good Vibes GIF by Major League SoccerGiphy

"My dad's heart stopped when he had a heart attack and he had to be brought back to life. He kept the paper copy of the heart monitor which shows he flatlined. He said he felt an overwhelming sensation of peace, like nothing he had felt before."



"I had surgical complications in 2010 that caused a great deal of blood loss. As a result, I had extremely low blood pressure and could barely stay awake. I remember feeling like I was surrounded by loved ones who had passed. They were in a circle around me and I knew they were there to guide me onwards. I told them I was not ready to go because my kids needed me and I came back."

"My nurse later said she was afraid she’d find me dead every time she came into the room."

"It took months, and blood transfusions, but I recovered."


Take Me Back

"Overwhelming peace and happiness. A bright airy and floating feeling. I live a very stressful life. Imagine finding out the person you have had a crush on reveals they have the same feelings for you and then you win the lotto later that day - that was the feeling I had."

"I never feared death afterward and am relieved when I hear of people dying after suffering from an illness."



The Light Minnie GIF by (G)I-DLEGiphy

"I had a heart surgery with near-death experience, for me at least (well the possibility that those effects are caused by morphine is also there) I just saw black and nothing else but it was warm and I had such inner peace, its weird as I sometimes still think about it and wish this feeling of being so light and free again."


This is why I hate surgery.

You just never know.



"More of a near-death experience. I was electrocuted. I felt like I was in a deep hole looking straight up in the sky. My life flashed before me. Felt sad for my family, but I had a deep sense of peace."



"Nursing in the ICU, we’ve had people try to die on us many times during the years, some successfully. One guy stood out to me. His heart stopped. We called a code, are working on him, and suddenly he comes to. We hadn’t vented him yet, so he was able to talk, and he started screaming, 'Don’t let them take me, don’t let them take me, they are coming,' he was scared and yelling."

"Then he yelled a little more, as we tried to calm him down, he screamed, 'No, No,' and gestured towards the end of the bed, and died again. We didn’t get him back. It was seriously creepy. We called his son to tell him the news, and the son said basically, 'Good, he was an SOB.'”



"My sister died and said it was extremely peaceful. She said it was very loud like a train station and lots of talking and she was stuck in this area that was like a curtain with lots of beautiful colors (colors that you don’t see in real life according to her) a man told her 'He was sorry, but she had to go back as it wasn’t her time.'"


"I had a really similar experience except I was in an endless garden with flowers that were colors I had never seen before. It was quiet and peaceful and a woman in a dress looked at me, shook her head, and just said 'Not yet.' As I was coming back, it was extremely loud, like everyone in the world was trying to talk all at once. It was all very disorienting but it changed my perspective on life!"


The Fog

"I was in a gray fog with a girl who looked a lot like a young version of my grandmother (who was still alive) but dressed like a pioneer in the 1800s she didn't say anything but kept pulling me towards an opening in the wall. I kept refusing to go because I was so tired."

"I finally got tired of her nagging and went and that's when I came to. I had bled out during a c-section and my heart could not beat without blood. They had to deliver the baby and sew up the bleeders. refill me with blood before they could restart my heart so, like, at least 12 minutes gone."


Through the Walls

"My spouse was dead for a couple of minutes one miserable night. She maintains that she saw nothing, but only heard people talking about her like through a wall. The only thing she remembers for absolute certain was begging an ER nurse that she didn't want to die."

"She's quite alive and well today."


Well let's all be happy to be alive.

It seems to be all we have.

Man's waist line

Trying to lose weight is a struggle understood by many people regardless of size.

The goal of reaching a healthy weight may seem unattainable, but with diet and exercise, it can pay off through persistence and discipline.

Seeing the pounds gradually drop off can also be a great motivator and incentivize people to stay the course.

Those who've achieved their respective weight goals shared their experiences when Redditor apprenti8455 asked:

"People who lost a lot of weight, what surprises you the most now?"

Redditors didn't see these coming.

Shiver Me Timbers

"I’m always cold now!"

– Telrom_1

"I had a coworker lose over 130 pounds five or six years ago. I’ve never seen him without a jacket on since."

– r7ndom

"140 lbs lost here starting just before COVID, I feel like that little old lady that's always cold, damn this top comment was on point lmao."

– mr_remy

Drawing Concern

"I lost 100 pounds over a year and a half but since I’m old(70’s) it seems few people comment on it because (I think) they think I’m wasting away from some terminal illness."

– dee-fondy

"Congrats on the weight loss! It’s honestly a real accomplishment 🙂"

"Working in oncology, I can never comment on someone’s weight loss unless I specifically know it was on purpose, regardless of their age. I think it kind of ruffles feathers at times, but like I don’t want to congratulate someone for having cancer or something. It’s a weird place to be in."

– LizardofDeath

Unleashing Insults

"I remember when I lost the first big chunk of weight (around 50 lbs) it was like it gave some people license to talk sh*t about the 'old' me. Old coworkers, friends, made a lot of not just negative, but harsh comments about what I used to look like. One person I met after the big loss saw a picture of me prior and said, 'Wow, we wouldn’t even be friends!'”

"It wasn’t extremely common, but I was a little alarmed by some of the attention. My weight has been up and down since then, but every time I gain a little it gets me a little down thinking about those things people said."

– alanamablamaspama

Not Everything Goes After Losing Weight

"The loose skin is a bit unexpected."

– KeltarCentauri

"I haven’t experienced it myself, but surgery to remove skin takes a long time to recover. Longer than bariatric surgery and usually isn’t covered by insurance unless you have both."

– KatMagic1977

"It definitely does take a long time to recover. My Dad dropped a little over 200 pounds a few years back and decided to go through with skin removal surgery to deal with the excess. His procedure was extensive, as in he had skin taken from just about every part of his body excluding his head, and he went through hell for weeks in recovery, and he was bedridden for a lot of it."

– Jaew96

These Redditors shared their pleasantly surprising experiences.


"I can buy clothes in any store I want."

– WaySavvyD

"When I lost weight I was dying to go find cute, smaller clothes and I really struggled. As someone who had always been restricted to one or two stores that catered to plus-sized clothing, a full mall of shops with items in my size was daunting. Too many options and not enough knowledge of brands that were good vs cheap. I usually went home pretty frustrated."

– ganache98012

No More Symptoms

"Lost about 80 pounds in the past year and a half, biggest thing that I’ve noticed that I haven’t seen mentioned on here yet is my acid reflux and heartburn are basically gone. I used to be popping tums every couple hours and now they just sit in the medicine cabinet collecting dust."

– colleennicole93

Expanding Capabilities

"I'm all for not judging people by their appearance and I recognise that there are unhealthy, unachievable beauty standards, but one thing that is undeniable is that I can just do stuff now. Just stamina and flexibility alone are worth it, appearance is tertiary at best."

– Ramblonius

People Change Their Tune

"How much nicer people are to you."

"My feet weren't 'wide' they were 'fat.'"

– LiZZygsu

"Have to agree. Lost 220 lbs, people make eye contact and hold open doors and stuff"

"And on the foot thing, I also lost a full shoe size numerically and also wear regular width now 😅"

– awholedamngarden

It's gonna take some getting used to.

Bones Everywhere

"Having bones. Collarbones, wrist bones, knee bones, hip bones, ribs. I have so many bones sticking out everywhere and it’s weird as hell."

– Princess-Pancake-97

"I noticed the shadow of my ribs the other day and it threw me, there’s a whole skeleton in here."

– bekastrange

Knee Pillow

"Right?! And they’re so … pointy! Now I get why people sleep with pillows between their legs - the knee bones laying on top of each other (side sleeper here) is weird and jarring."

– snic2030

"I lost only 40 pounds within the last year or so. I’m struggling to relate to most of these comments as I feel like I just 'slimmed down' rather than dropped a ton. But wow, the pillow between the knees at night. YES! I can relate to this. I think a lot of my weight was in my thighs. I never needed to do this up until recently."

– Strongbad23

More Mobility

"I’ve lost 100 lbs since 2020. It’s a collection of little things that surprise me. For at least 10 years I couldn’t put on socks, or tie my shoes. I couldn’t bend over and pick something up. I couldn’t climb a ladder to fix something. Simple things like that I can do now that fascinate me."

"Edit: Some additional little things are sitting in a chair with arms, sitting in a booth in a restaurant, being able to shop in a normal store AND not needing to buy the biggest size there, being able to easily wipe my butt, and looking down and being able to see my penis."

– dma1965

People making significant changes, whether for mental or physical health, can surely find a newfound perspective on life.

But they can also discover different issues they never saw coming.

That being said, overcoming any challenge in life is laudable, especially if it leads to gaining confidence and ditching insecurities.
