Rare is the person who hasn't experienced stepping on a LEGO.

The building blocks are popular around the globe so the opportunity is widespread.

The feeling is so universal it's often used to describe a level of pain—as either worse or not as bad as stepping on a LEGO.

So what about those things that we categorize as worse?


Redditor Fyre-Bringer asked:

"What's worse than stepping on a LEGO?"
