People Break Down The Worst Thing You Could Ever Spill
Spillage is an issue. It is an embarrassing issue.
I hate spilling anything.
One of the main reasons is because I don't understand the damage.
I feel like when I'm cleaning a spilled ounce of water, it's an ocean. Liquid is deceptive. And scientifically it makes no sense.
But liquid is not the only thing that can spill over and cause drama.
RedditorMixed-chick_with_catwanted to discuss all the things we need to be more careful around, by asking:
"What's the worst thing you could possibly spill?"
As an ex waiter, wine—red wine specifically—was always the devil.
Do you know what spilling red wine can cost?
That's why I had a second job.
"Glitter." ~ LatterBlood
"I worked in a craft store and some toddler grabbed a glass canister of superfine glitter and threw it on the ground when their mother wasn't looking. It shattered. Glitter and glass everywhere. That aisle was never free of glitter ever again." ~ gentlybeepingheartGiphy
Warning: it's not a pretty story...
"An Organic mercury compound called dimethylmercury. It's ^edit: one of the strongest neurotoxin known to us. Even a small drop is enough to cause severe mercury poisoning. What makes it the worst thing to spill is that clean up will be difficult. It can penetrate latex (rubber gloves) and plastic."
"An expert died within 10 months of accidental exposure when a few drops landed on her gloves. The chemical seeped through her gloves and into her skin and caused neurological damage. If you want to read up on her, her name is Karen Wetterhahn. Warning: it's not a pretty story." ~ veryfascinating
"Pretty obviously, chlorine trifluoride." ~ SchillMcGuffin
"I work on systems used to handle aggressively awful chemicals and I always laugh seeing the really boring-looking text about how you can't have sprinklers on chlorine trifluoride ones."
"There's boring-looking text for other crazy things but nothing is funnier than casually seeing reject nazi chemical/incendiary weapons mentioned on a daily basis. There's also a safety bulletin about it talking about how the one time it did spill it burned through a foot of concrete and three feet of gravel." ~ deliciouslyexplosive
"Maybe not the absolute worst but powdered freaking sugar. Did it the other day. I'll never find it all. It's coated my entire home." ~ im-choading-you
"One time while at work, my cat somehow opened my cupboard and got into the bag of powdered sugar. When I say it was everywhere I mean everywhere. Kitchen, living room, bedroom even up the sides of the curtains. Looks like he had a great time tossing the bag around, would of loved to have been a fly on the wall to see that. But holly crap was it a pain to clean up." ~ chalrs123
"Nitroglycerin." ~ bnutbutter78
"Unless you're trying to blow up yourself or wherever you spilt it on. That stuff blows up if you look at it the wrong way." ~ Zkenny13
We need to do away with glitter.
It lives forever.
As if I'm not scared enough.
"Your guts... Metaphorically and literally speaking at same time." ~ turn_your_compoteGiphy
"Bong water." ~ twig123456789
"Yeah had a mate whose flat mate kept spilling his. So my friend says 'when we move out you're paying to clean the carpets.' Nasty bugger (nah, he was a sweet guy) just moved out and didn't do it. It almost ruins carpets." ~ hastingsnikcox
"I have a silicone bong and while it's nice that it won't shatter, it's way too tall and top-heavy and i spill it constantly. That smell permeates." ~ plantiewitch
"Never cried over spilt milk until after a 4am breast pumping session. I was still struggling to build up enough stock to go back to work. It was the most oz I had pumped all damn day and it slipped on the counter as I was putting on the lid. Instant devastation." ~ Melbee86

Save the meal...
"The pot of chili." ~ endofthehold
"Going to a fall picnic in the Appalachian mountains. Brother-in-law driving, his wife (my sister) in the passenger seat, me and my younger sister in the back. They were arguing about something and he whipped the car into a parking area."
"The pot of chili at my sister's feet toppled over and emptied all over her feet and the floor mat. Thankfully it wasn't scalding hot and there was plenty of food from other family members to eat at the picnic." ~ NagromTrebloc
"A good drink." ~ yepotabog
"I dropped a full bottle of whiskey. Was thinking of going back the next day to put flowers there. I still have the bottleneck that was never opened. I now hold the box from the bottom." ~ scapegoat_88Giphy
"Oil into the sea." ~ spillymcspillings
"There is worse substances getting into the sea than oil, oil is actually one of the better things cuz it floats to the top its possible to clean up." ~ texasstrawhat
"Yea, but how much of it is being cleaned when compared to how much is dumped? Corporations need to take responsibility, and when the economy collapses next, some people will be desperate and angry enough to make them take responsibility." ~ Vlad-V2-Vladimir
Oh the pines...
"Pine-Sol. Back when I worked retail, a customer spilled an entire bottle of Pine-Sol - a floor cleaner that is supposed to be diluted in water before using - across several aisles. Turns out that undiluted Pine-Sol turns tile floors into an ice rink, does not like to be absorbed by paper towels or powder, and stinks to high heaven."
"I wish anyone complaining about retail workers quitting en masse could time-travel back to 2014 to join me for the evening I spent trying to clean up that crap as customers yelled at me for trying to redirect them so they wouldn't slip and fall while I was trying not to hurl from the intense stench." ~ tvgirl48
"There's a definitive answer to this - some of the worst smelling substances ever - https://www.science.org/content/blog-post/things-i-won-t-work-selenophenol. BTW anything this guy won't work with you wouldn't want to spill :-)." ~ epl239
"I once spilled a whole gallon of milk into the carpet of my car in the middle of the summer. It was not good at all." ~ Representative_Bad57Disgusted Nick Miller GIF by New GirlGiphy
"Fish sauce. My old roommate's daughter dropped a whole liter bottle of it on a ceramic floor right next to the fridge. It went under the fridge, got into the grout, stank for months." ~ beerandboogie
"Honey is quite annoying to deal with." ~ DimensionalLynx169
"Especially when it’s a large glass jar of honey dropped on a ceramic tile floor and you have a 2 yr old toddler demanding to know what you’re doing under the kitchen table." ~ mineandme
Into the Earth
"A micro black hole, just large enough to accrete matter faster than it loses it to Hawking radiation. It’s so dense, it’ll drop through the Earth’s crust and mantle like a bowling ball through a fog bank, and gradually swallow the planet from the inside out." ~ bonos_bovine_muse
"At our brewery we have a chemical called PAA (Peracetic acid) used for sanitizing and if you get it on you, your skin turns white and feels like you're getting stung by fire ants." ~ Gat_Gat_Habitat
"Lithium aluminum hydride (LiAlH4) wouldn’t be fun. It’s powerful enough to rip off any proton bonded to an electronegative atom. Also, when it reacts it releases a lot of heat and hydrogen gas." ~ ApprehensivePick2989Reaction GIFGiphy
"clean it up"
"A gallon of organic mercury, it's so toxic that even breathing in fumes will kill you. To 'clean it up' you'd need to bury the whole building in a concrete dome and fill it with concrete." ~ jerrythecactus
Like a door knob...
"My dad worked in the Air Force in the 90's. He worked on Nuclear Missiles. He said that there was a small bottle of 'tridium' that went into each missile. Occasionally they would have to remove the bottle of tridium from the missile to perform maintenance."
"My dad said the bottle looked just like a small circular door knob. He said one time they played a trick on a guy by dropping a door knob. If they had actually dropped the bottle of tridium, everyone who was present would've died." ~ Minimalcharges
"As someone who has worked in restaurants for 8 years, ranch dressing. When you spill it, it’s always a massive amount and it is almost impossible to fully clean up." ~ Latenight-crybaby

When you gotta go, you go.
That should be a mantra for getting rid of the toxic people in our lives.
Not every relationship is meant to last forever.
Some people don't know how to be friends.
They are awfully good at pretending though.
Be vigilant of the signs and red flags.
Toxic people are crafty.
And once you're free, never look back.
Redditor _ReDd1T_UsEr wanted to discuss the reasons why many of us decided to cut some people out of our lives, so they asked:
"What was the reason why your friendship ended with someone?"
Sometimes a person just has to go.
Planning StagesWeekend Sunday GIF by DisneyGiphy
"I stopped being the first to always initiate plans, and that was that."
"I once asked a friend to plan our next breakfast + walk outing, since I always did that. He wrote me a letter ending the friendship. Stunning!"
Pants on Fire
"Habitual lying became too annoying and disruptive to tolerate."
"When you constantly are thinking... this math ain't matching lol. People that lie all the time make me sick. I've told multiple friends that you don't have to lie to me."
"I feel so much better when someone can trust me and feel comfortable telling me a hard truth than an easy lie."
"Even if the truth made me feel some type of way, I'm still glad it was honest. I've even said thank you to people in the past that have been honest with me, good or bad! Some people just can not help lying about things. I wouldn't be able to ever keep a story straight if I did that."
"He kept having kids with different girls and bailing on them. Coming from a 'went out for a pack of smokes' Dad myself, I just couldn't watch it anymore. Bailed after the third one. Think he's up to 6 now."
"Reminds me of one of my ex-friends. She kept having kids with MULTIPLE guys (all of them were one-night stands), I don't think she even knows who the baby daddies are."
"She also kept begging me and people for money for pot, and she also bragged about having OnlyFans. She'd also make up stories about being in an abusive relationship with her boyfriend (she'd also cheat on him/tell people her and him they broke up, which they weren't)."
"I was a bad person and they ended it for perfectly sensible reasons. I would have done the same. I've changed, but I don't blame them for not reconsidering contact."
"I’ve been there. I was a bad person and lost friendships and family relationships. I tried to apologize to everyone I hurt."
"I also accepted that they don’t want me in their lives anymore. I learned that I made my mistakes, I learned from them, and I accept their choices. I don’t self-hate anymore and I try to be a better person in general. I hope you are doing well and practicing self-love and forgiveness."
Money IssuesDonald Duck Money GIFGiphy
"I lent them $20 and then they avoided me so they didn’t have to pay me back. Worth the $20."
"I don't ever expect prompt returns of small amounts of money between my friends... we all buy each other rounds or buy the food for the BBQ or whatever. It ends up evening out over time I think we'd notice though if someone was always taking and never giving and then they'd probably get cut off too."
In the immortal words of Cyndi Lauper... "Money Changes Everything."
Lack of SupportHappy Planning GIFGiphy
"She joined a pyramid scheme selling butt-ugly leggings and it took over her whole life. When I finally told her it was negatively affecting our friendship, she accused me of not supporting her 'business.'"
"I was basically a taxi for my friends so I dumped them all."
"This one I can understand but depends on the situation. Not all of my friends had cars in high school, so our group needed to have me and my sh*tty '94 Plymouth Sundance come, or they couldn't do anything. I didn't mind at all then, but I definitely would these days."
"I remember I used to drive around with my buddies all the time before they had licenses. When one of my friends got his and a car I said sweet now you can drive me around for a bit, he replied that he wasn't gonna waste his money on gas like that. See ya, haven't really spoken to him since."
"How's this for oddly specific: Friend since 1980, was hanging out at a bar in 1992 and there was a dispute of over a $15.00 bar tab. I was in the right, but whatever - he held a grudge for years."
"Ran into him in 2017 and we were both too old to care. Started to see each other now and then. 2023 and we're at this local bar for a show and got into a fight about $15.00 a ticket."
"Maybe he'll call me in 2063."
"She was a taker, constantly. When I needed something she made it about her yet again. Exhausting to be around."
"I'm going through this right now. Can't tell you how many texts I have from her in the past few days telling me that I need to get over myself, need to stop making myself the victim, have been a terrible friend, have never been there for her."
"She's the most narcissistic person I know and everyone does everything for her. She has one of the easiest lives ever and anytime anything bad happens to her she believes that everyone is against her and she's the victim here. It's pure insanity. There is no talking sense to people like this."

"I've lost like all but two of my 'friends' because I stopped drinking and doing hard drugs."
"Same here dude. My circle is small but hey at least it's a circle I know I can go to."
Oh, how things change when the booze dries up.
How much fun were you really having?

People Who've Attended A Wedding Where Someone Actually Objected Share Their Experiences
There's nothing quite like the drama that can arise at a wedding or in the days leading up to it.
But the moment people don't necessarily think about is the moment when the audience can choose to object if they so choose, and surprisingly, some people take advantage of this opportunity. It often doesn't go well.
Redditor AustinMakesStuff asked:
"Has anyone ever been to a wedding where someone actually objected, and if so, how did that go?"
"I went to a wedding where they skipped that part because the bride's adult daughter was planning to object."
"How was this known? Had she pre-announced her intention, or was she just that kind of person and people had accurately predicted it?"
"She told somebody, and they told the bride and groom."
Uncovering the Con Artist
"I feel like about half of weddings these days don't have that part, and not because of feared objections, just because it is outdated and weird. Premarital sex is a thing. Divorce is a thing."
"Weddings cost like over $10k; if you know reasons to stop a marriage (outside of movies), you need to intervene at the engagement or earlier, not during the ceremony."
"That said, one of my wife's college roommates canceled a wedding like a day or two days beforehand, right after graduating college, after being in a long-distance relationship with some guy for a year or so. Her family was quite well-off and she was dating a guy who lavished gifts and expensive dates on her whenever they were together, said he ran his own company, just bought them a fancy house, etc."
"It turns out he was just super in debt, working a near minimum wage job, and maxing out credit cards taken out fraudulently. He had a fake web page with other employees for his company that he set up for the sole purpose of keeping up the front. The house was only bought from grossly lying about income (pre-2007 housing crisis) on the mortgage application, and he was drowning in debt."
"The almost-bride's father got bad vibes about the guy (a few things didn't add up, like he had this fancy house but couldn't afford any furniture), and he hired a PI (Personal Investigator) who quickly uncovered the deception."
"(And she didn't break up with him because he wasn't rich, she broke up because he spent tons of effort to lie about everything and was completely conning her and just trying to get her roped into joint ownership of his debt via marriage that he expected the family to pay off.)"
"My husband's first marriage. The brother of the bride stood up and said to my husband, 'Say no, you can still be happy!'"
"They went through with the marriage and wound up divorcing with a messy breakup."
"Brother-in-law is still best friends with my husband (as far as he's concerned, he gained a brother and lost a sister, and is better off for it), and he never lets him forget the fact that he was right and he should have bailed, lol (laughing out loud)."
"My auntie's fiance was already married (a lady stood up waving the marriage certificate), so the wedding didn't go ahead. The reception was on a long boat so we still went to that."
"The fiance went back to his home country to sort it out and never came back."
"I worked a wedding where one of the moms objected, but I think the groom knew that the parent was going to say something, so they just responded with, 'Oh sit down, (parents name), we knew you didn't like this a year ago and clearly we're not going to change our minds today."'
"The wedding continued like nothing happened, but the mom was lowkey shunned and people avoided her at the reception."
Going Separate Ways
"This was in America, and the wedding was in a Buddhist temple. The parents of the groom stood up and objected because they didn’t believe the bride was of the same class. They spoke in another language so most of the English-speaking guests didn’t know they were objecting."
"My husband was the best man and those closest to the couple knew this might happen. The Buddhist priest said he would handle it if the parents tried anything."
"After the parents spoke for a while, the priest said to the groom, 'You’ve heard what your parents had to say, what do you want to do?'"
"The groom replied, 'I want to marry my bride.'"
"So the priest asked the parents to leave."
"At this point, the rest of the guests are clueing in that this was not a nice part of the ceremony, and that the parents were actually objecting, so, as the parents walked out, some of the guests were berating them saying things like, 'You should be ashamed of yourself,' and 'How could you do that?' Even though the groom was not happy with his parents, that was very hard for him to hear."
"That was 30 years ago. The couple is still married. They have two beautiful, successful children. After the groom’s mom passed away, the groom’s father came around and was involved in their lives until he died."
Not Meant to Be
"A woman, in her twenties at the time, objected to her mom marrying my uncle. So she started yelling, 'Mom, don’t marry him!' during the ceremony."
"The ceremony proceeded, and some family on the mom’s side lead the daughter away to quit interrupting."
"I don’t blame her. My uncle was a lying, lazy bast**d. The marriage didn’t last."
The Best Man Swap
"I went to a wedding where the best man was replaced a week before because he banged the bride. But the wedding still went ahead just with a different best man. They are divorced now."
Joke Gone Wrong
"I went to a Catholic wedding where, when the priest asked this question, one of the groomsmen did a VERY loud, long, throat clearing, which got everyone laughing."
"Everyone except for the bride's elderly Italian Grandmother, who marched out of her seat and angrily hit the groomsman with her handbag and shouted at him in Italian!"
Giving Away the Bride
"I objected. I took giving my sister away literally."
"I wasn't the brightest three-year-old."
Wedding Invitation Revenge
"At my cousin's wedding, her friend said, 'I object,' because she was not invited to the wedding. She was kicked out of the wedding."
"Not quite the question as asked, but too funny to not share:"
"Priest: 'Any objections?'"
"Father of the bride: lets out the hardest, loudest, most complex-sounding sneeze I've ever heard in my life, completely with involuntarily saying, 'ACHOOOOOO!'"
"Mother of the bride, hammered on champagne: 'For f**k's sake, Jerry!'"
"It took a good five minutes for everyone to regain their composure."
The Bride Who Got Away
"I had a friend who was a minister, and the subject came up if he asked the question during ceremonies he officiated."
"He laughed and said no way. He basically tells the couple not to include it because it only invites a moment of anxiety at best, misery at worst."
"His best story (and one of the reasons he stopped including the question) was about a couple where in the lead-up to the wedding, the couple was obviously in love. The bride-to-be was very smiley and happy."
"But the day of the wedding, she was stone-faced. He (my minister friend) knew something is up because he’d never seen her like this and he asked if she was okay. She just said, 'I’m fine.'"
"Right before the service, he asked again, and 'I’m fine.'"
"He got to the question, 'Does anyone object to this union?'"
"The bride reached over, grabbed the Maid of Honor's hand, shoved her into the bride’s spot, and said, 'You’re screwing him, you marry him.'"
"Then she stormed out of the church."
An Unforgettable Toast
"At his rehearsal dinner, a coworker's mother's toast included that his soon-to-be wife was a 'd**n dirty w**re who wasn't good enough' for her son. Folks were not happy. (The video ended so didn't see the whole thing.)"
"At the wedding which I attended, his mom started to say something at the 'speak now or' part but was silenced by her daughter. Mom left and didn't see the rest of the ceremony."
"Everything about that poor guy was drama."
"Attended a wedding where the minister said something along the lines of, 'If anyone here objects to this marriage, you can keep your mouth shut. Today is not about you.'"
Bonus: Funeral Shenanigans
"Not a wedding, but at a funeral someone objected to the death."
"At my uncle’s funeral, his ex-wife and a local church [cult] leader tried to raise him from the dead. We were all sitting there like normal people at a normal funeral and she walks up to the casket and starts yelling, 'James Lester, raise up!'"
"I didn’t know she was there or I would’ve prepared myself for shenanigans. Also, I didn’t know my uncle’s middle name was Lester, so please imagine the confusion. So she and the cult leader are literally yelling at my uncle’s body."
"Not surprisingly, my uncle refused to resurrect himself. They were escorted out."
"I’ve actually never told this story because it makes my family look insane."
The last thing a person wants is for their to be drama on their wedding day, but like any other major event, sometimes something will come up. But having someone try to put a stop to the wedding, in front of everyone, certainly will add a terrible note to the wedding day.
Financially speaking, most of us could benefit greatly from having extra money each month.
But where someone might assume that the extra money would just be wasted, most people would apply these funds to very practical purposes and expenditures.
Redditor dothepingu asked:
"What would you do if you had an extra $1,000 every month?"
"A couple of weeks ago, I went to the dentist and overheard a heartbreaking situation."
"The office had a very open floor plan with privacy screens rather than individual rooms. But you could still hear every single conversation."
"This teenage kid comes in and says that he has a broken crown that needs to be fixed."
"The dentist says that it will cost $700. Kid says he has to call his mom first."
"So the kid calls the mom, and the mom says, 'No way in h**l can we afford that. Just tell the dentist to stick the old one back on.'"
"The dentist is like, 'Are you sure? That's not really a thing. It's just gonna break off again.'"
"The mom says too bad, he has to live with it."
"If I had an extra $1000, I would have picked up that tab for that kid."
"Pay off debts and save."
"Exactly my thoughts, start actually being able to plan things and save money rather than being on the back foot all the time."
"Absolutely. Money just helps so much for lowering stress!"
"I'd ask my husband to take more time off work. We don't need the extra money, I'd rather have his company."
"Save more money and continue with my current lifestyle, except maybe also be able to get eye surgery for my worsening vision."
A Little Self-Care
"I'd start actually getting my hair cut and colored by someone that's not me at 3:00 AM feeling brave."
"I feel attacked by this comment, it feels personally directed at me."
"Be able to take care of my and my wife's mental health a h**l of a lot better."
"Her therapy is important but expensive. I would love to make sure she had more appointments and the best care."
Time to Retire
"Retire. 1000 USD per month is LIFE CHANGING in the Philippines."
"Probably move out of my uncle's shed."
"Make an extra mortgage payment; pay off this house twice as fast."
"I'd try out that three meals per day trend that people talk about."
"I'd settle for one meal a day and not living in my car."
"Dude. Been there for six months. One day we'll make it big. We'll sleep on a mattress and eat TWO meals a day."
"I'd work fewer hours. I've been here for 32 years and haven't been able to take a vacation in over four years."
Providing for Family
"My mom recently became single, with three kids and a grandkid at home. She and two of the kids who live with her are unable to work because of severe health problems."
"I know she is constantly terrified about how she's going to pay the bills. I'd give her the $1,000 each month in a heartbeat."
Man's Best Friend
"I'd finally be able to afford a dog."
"Live instead of survive."
While there are millionaires in the world, or even just people who live very comfortably, most people are currently living paycheck-to-paycheck, give or take a few hundred dollars. And that $1,000 extra each month would make all the difference.
When love is on the rocks and there's no salvaging a relationship, it's better for a couple to call it splits.
Sometimes the reason for a breakup is obvious.
Other times, it's more complicated.
But the people involved going their separate ways is better than staying in an unhealthy relationship.
Curious to hear from ex-lovers who've been there, Redditor Lishasquarepant asked:
"What caused your last break-up?"
These Redditors found they and their significant other were no longer on the same page.
"Simply, we grew apart."
"Same, I feel like Michael Scott everytime I try to start another relationship. 'No question about it, I am ready to get hurt again.'"
"Same. We loved each other like siblings, not spouses... Ugh! Lovely man though who now has a fab girlfriend. We are good friends and much happier apart."
"Same. And it f'king sucks, but that’s life. It’s been a year and I still hate every second that she’s not in my life, but at the same time I know she’s happier now than she would’ve been if we stayed together."
Having no communication is the worst part.
"He slowly got distant. I believe he lost interest and didn't dare be honest with me about that."
The Late Blame Game
"I had that happen as well, but then he pinned it on me being distant and not affectionate enough."
"My guy, if you pull your hand away every time I try to hold it, I'm gonna stop trying to hold it. And if I ask if something's up and you repeatedly tell me everything is fine, I'm going to believe you. Don't wait till I'm at my worst moment and then reveal you had issues with me for 3 months and break up with me for it being 'my fault.'"
"Everything Is Fine"
"Oh man, the asking repeatedly and getting a 'nothing' reminds me of a story."
"My friend used to ask her ex this every time he was unusually quiet. He’d always say he was fine, then at one point, told her to stop asking because it was making him feel weird."
"So she did."
"Six months later he initiated a divorce because she didn’t care about his feelings anymore."
"Like…don’t ask for sh*t then get pissy when you get what you want."
And then there are those who were not invested in the relationship for a long time.
The Struggle Is Real
"He seemed to struggle with the concept of not f'king random people."
Leaving The Problem
"He moved to his country because he missed his family. So he only sent a WhatsApp message saying he was going to stay there. I would have preferred a call at least to break up a marriage."
"Something similar happened to my cousin. He married her in the US, they had a baby together.. a few years go by, he misses home, goes back to visit.. His family had an arranged marriage ready for him 🤦🏻♀️ He ended up with a new wife and new baby. Hasn’t came back."
A Foreign Custom
"It just seems so surreal that a grown a** adult with a wife and baby would leave his family behind for an arranged marriage. I'll never fathom the mentality."
"I wasn't having sex near as often as she was."
Breaking up is hard to do.
But a good thing to remember is that love can be found again and the new relationship can be even better than the previous one.
And that's something that can't be recognized until you look back in retrospect.
We all have to kiss a few toads.
