It's a fact of life that people can be brutal. Whether it's because a person is downright cruel or because he or she is drunk or angry, they can say some awful things.

My Indian aunt once mistakenly thought a cousin of mine was my daughter and told me American teenagers were trashy and stupid. I don't talk to that aunt anymore...

There is never an excuse to be that cruel, but that doesn't stop people from behaving that way.

Curious about this, Redditor Brilliant-End9428 asked:

"What is the most f*cked up thing someone said to you?"


No Excuse For Cruelty

"Mum's (59) boyfriend got mega drunk a few weeks back, told her that he was "only with her because he pitied her""

"Drunk or not, she wasn't having that. Back to being single."

– astrielx

Worst SIL Ever

"My sister-in-law was joking about how there aren't any male children that will "carry on the family name" when she knows full well that I lost my son at birth."

– otherm0ther

Wrong Reason To Have A Child

""You were our last attempt to save the marriage""

"Thanks, mom. Glad to know I was a failure straight out of the gate."

– Papa_Smurf87

Their Loss

""You're too ugly to buy ice cream from." - Some b**ch to me @ 15"

– Dividebynegativezero

Undeserving Of Being A Father

"When I was 11 my father (who I hadn't seen in 5 years b/c of divorce) showed up at a family Christmas and calmly asked me to not call him 'dad' b/c his new kids didn't know I existed."

– marshfield00

Grandmas Shouldn't Have Favorites

"I was 7 or 8 and I told my grandmother I wanted to be a doctor when I grew up. She told me I would never be smart enough and that I'd be lucky to one day be my cousin's house cleaner."

"My cousin was her favorite grandchild."

"I'm 32 and I still remember it so vividly."

– Jackie_13

ATM

"I hope you realize I'm only using you for your money"

--warlordwinters

No Good Reason For Saying This

"My grandmother and grandfather told 7yr old me if my mom kills herself and my dad dies in Afghanistan they would rather see me rot on the streets than taking me in"

– sugarhornyicetea

That's Not How It Works

"Just dont be depressed. Like bro..."

– SpeakablePerson

No matter who it was that said something that cruel to you, know that you deserve better (and that it might be time to cut someone out of your life).

People Divulge Which Instances Of The Mandela Effect Freaked Them Out The Most

The Mandela effect is when multiple people share the same, incorrect memory.

Its name stems from when paranormal researcher Fiona Broome falsely believed that the future president of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, died in prison in the 1980s.

A false memory she shared with a number of others.

Our memories have been known to deceive us, as we might frequently forget someone's name or one of our numerous online passwords.

But when we share a memory that turns out to be false with many others, convincing ourselves it wasn't the truth can be a very difficult ordeal indeed.

One last time. One last meal.

How do you chose a last meal?

Let's hope we never have to find out.

People on death row get that option.

Do they deserve it?

Whose to say?

But they have it.

A steak. A pizza... Burger King.

The food world is their oyster.

Oyster. Also an option.

The menu is endless...

People Break Down The Exact Moment They Realized Their Friends Were A-Holes

Most of the time, this isn't intentional, but just simply happens.

On rare occasions though, people might realize that their friends were not exactly who they thought they were, and didn't like who they revealed themselves to be.

When visiting any foreign country, one should always be familiar with the laws and customs of the land.

After all, what might be generally accepted on your home turf, might be frowned upon, if not illegal, elsewhere.

For that matter, even locals might need a refresher course on what they can and can't do while at home.
