People Confess The Most Soul-Crushing Thing Someone's Ever Said To Them

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


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


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).

In this digital age, nothing stays a secret for long. Every event, whether it's heartwarming or heartbreaking, is recorded for posterity.

One kind of event that has been recorded over and over is that of police activity. Good or bad, bystanders automatically reach for their phone in order to record the order of events exactly as they happened. These bystanders also get as close as they can.

However, in Arizona, that's not allowed anymore and people are NOT happy.

Redditor Wizard_Elon_3003 asked:

"Arizona just made it illegal to record police officers closer than 8 feet. What are your thoughts on this?"

There are few feelings worse than when someone goes out of their way to insult you.

In fact, what might be the only thing that feels worse is when someone insults you accidentally or without realizing it.

This might happen when someone assumes you're on your way to a costume party based on your choice of clothes or laughing upon hearing your middle name on the assumption it must be a joke.

When in fact you went to great pains to choose said outfit and were most definitely not kidding about your middle name.

Redditor IrohsFavoriteTea was eager to hear some of the most unfortunate accidental insults, leading them to ask:

"What is the worst insult you've suffered from someone who didn't even mean it as an insult?"
