There's something special about women sticking together and bonding through many of life's ups and downs.

No matter what, they seem to have each other's backs because they can relate to many situations that can cause them to be vulnerable.

But that doesn't mean they never scoff at certain behaviors exhibited by members of their own gender.


Curious to explore the things women can't stand about other women, Redditor EvilLord007 opened up a lively discussion after asking:

"Women, what do you wish your fellow women would stop doing immediately?"

These Redditors discussed the damaging effects of flaunting their beauty enhancement procedures.

The Look

"Doing heavy plastic surgery/photoshop and then going out to their young teenage girl audience saying its compleatly natural."

"Like idc if you do it for yourself BUT DONT SAY ITS REAL WHEN ITS NOT."

– SquareUnderwear69

It Comes At A Cost

"I call this the Kardashian Effect."

Obviously, plastic surgery has been around a long, long time and used to be mostly for rich people...but all of these reality shows and fake celebrities are making it more popular than ever, and that pressure is reaching a lot of young and impressionable people."

"I personally know people who have taken out loans and gone into debt so they can get a boob job or get their lips done. And the worst part is...it doesn't even look good."

"Someone I used to know was a very pretty, natural looking girl...then she moved to Vegas, has gotten a ton of work done, and looks like a creepy Barbie doll. It's weird."

Having A Bad Influence

"This specifically relates to influencers but they need to stop denying that they've had plastic surgery. It feeds into the unrealistic beauty standards we already have."

– littleecce

Compliments aren't always generated from a genuine place.

Fake Niceties

"The fake nice compliments which are actually insults."

"I’ve got a coworker who compliments me and then looks at me like I’m crazy when I take it at face value."

"Lady you’re 40. I don’t think either of us have time for mental warfare. Be nice or don’t, but don’t play this A** backwards high school game."

– rizcriz

Wearing It Well

"Had a friend who dealt with something similar like this:"

"Wow you're so confident wearing that blouse."

"Thank you. I figured if you can do it, so can I. So thank you!"

– Sir_Meowsalot

Unsolicited Beauty Tip

“'Your eyebrows would be fierce if you shaped them.' -Random lady in my pregnancy yoga class."

"🤨 Girl step back or I will sit on you."

– Beckella

Judgy Behavior

"I just hate that women still care about that stuff after high school. Were all grown ups now, we can do what we want. I don’t need to be in your little group of cheerleaders, just leave me and my ugly cat jumper alone."

– Zeefzeef

Women call out other women who are trying to convince them of something they have no business suggesting.

Expectations

"Policing other women based on your own choices. Example- oh you’re a certain age. You should get married, I had a child by that age."

"You also owned a house and a car and you’re healthy AF."

– deceptionaldpka

The Scheme

"Trying to get me to join their MLM."

– cherrycherry13

The Sales Pitch

"Always remember when my wife got invited to 'just a girly hang out with some wine, I'll also show you some of the make-up stuff I've been working with' with one of the other mums from school."

"Soon enough, the sales pitch starts..."

"Which, whatever, she liked some of the products but wasn't really keen on buying a £20-a-month membership just to be allowed to buy them."

"But what really irked her was that this woman always said how busy she was with work. After seeing what her work was (inviting friends over for pitches, and filling out order forms), my wife quietly fumed. She's working 10 hour days in a tough field trying to get settled on the career ladder, while MLM Wine Mum With Husband Earning Big City Bucks huffs about work being so busy."

– AndyVale

Leave My Face Alone

"please stop pointing my acne out and recommending a thousand products . I know my pimples .I get you are trying to help but please don't."

– Frenzy008

If you've never seen the comedy classic, "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," there is a scene where Arthur, King of the Britons, encounters a black knight guarding a bridge. Arthur quickly figures out the stalwart knight will not let him pass, so the two do battle, with the king severely injuring his enemy in the process.

He cuts off all his arms and legs.

Yet the black knight persists, insisting his injuries are, "but a scratch."

Turns out this happens to people in real life, not so much with swords and knights, but with can openers and ice skates.

We are currently in a market that favors workers over employers – many workers feel empowered to seek out different positions and have reevaluated what they want in their careers amid the financial fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Many workers left their jobs in search of greener pastures because they were ready for a change, and others were more than happy to leave behind toxic workplaces that only burned them out.

As you can imagine, they've become rather adept at noticing red flags during the interview process and beyond.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor taylortaylortaylorrr asked the online community,

"What is a red flag from an employer that people might not immediately recognize as a red flag?"

Computers are not everyone's strong suit. Generation z is now reaching adulthood, and they've had computers, smart phones, and iPads since birth.

For anyone in an older generation, this wasn't the case. Computers weren't even advertised for the home until the Superbowl of 1984, and even then it was priced at $2,500.

Come the turn of the 21st century, computers are a staple in the home, but the advancements in the last two decades have left some people scrambling to keep up. Things that might seem basic to some are shockingly uncommon to others.
