The things the young workforce is proud to admit in this day and age leaves everyone dumbfounded. However, accomplishments come in all forms so whose to judge? The odd, quirky things we're all capable are things that set us apart from the pack. It's unfortunate that alot of the time we keep our personal wins to ourselves.

Redditor _u/Shore20 wondered aloud "What's one thing you're deeply proud of --- but would never put on your résumé?" __Start preparing that special skills section... tons of employers may love this. _

THE MIDAS TOUCH....

I got a call from a friend who also raised goats, she had a 5 month old who had a bum leg and the older kids were picking on her. I picked her up, but it was the start of a long weekend and every vet was closed for the next several days.

Turns out, she had broken her hind leg, about 3" above her ankle. Clean break, no broken skin.

I set it, then splinted it with a soda bottle cut so it would roll on itself. Wrapped it in vet wrap, planning to stabalize it through the weekend.

Couldn't get an appointment until a week later, where an x-ray showed that the leg was healing perfectly.

SHOW ME THE RED...

I've donated over 10 gallons of blood to the Red Cross. I actually had it on my resume for a while but some people get really weird about it.

I RATHER KALE...

Ate a whole head of iceberg lettuce in under 11 minutes. Most of my friends didn't even finish but I'm the Lettuce King.

BRAVO!!

I have over 11 1/2 years clean and sober. It's a good thing but I'm not telling potential employers about it.

KEEP THE ENTERTAINMENT GOING...

I'm fantastic at making balloon animals. I've got no good reason to be good at it.

WHAT ABOUT THE SOUP AND SALAD?

I ate 6 bowls of pasta at the pasta deathmatch challenge AKA the Olive garden never ending pasta bowl.

GOTCHA!

Back in 2008, I was a news photographer for a local CBS station. We were doing a story on a lady known regionally as "The Black Widow" - every husband she'd ever had mysteriously wound up dead, and she'd collected some 3 or 4 massive life insurance payouts over the course of her life. She had finally been caught and was appearing before an official in the local prison - it was some kind of small hearing in a tiny room, but I don't know the exact details. I had my camera on her with the top light turned on, and she kept putting her hand up in front of her face to block my shot. I'd turn it off, she'd put it down. Turn it back on, hand went up. I soon realized we're not going to have a single usable shot of this lady in our story that evening because the hearing was going to be over in no time, so I turned the camera on to record her, but shut the top light off. This made the shot a bit darker than I wanted, but it fooled her - she put her hand down and I got plenty of video of her. But not before she looked right in my camera lens, gave me a glare, and said, "You are very inconsiderate." Part of me wanted to ask her where"video taping a criminal" fell on the scale relative to "murdering a bunch of husbands," but I held my tongue.

YELL FIRE AND SWING!!

I'm a 5'4 110 pound lady and I managed to stab an assailant in the face with my keys.

Although it makes me seem crazy, it was my first physical altercation with someone 4x my size and I am proud that I didn't die or cry.

SERENA AND VENUS STILL LOVE YOU!

I used to be a really good tennis player! I would play on international circuits and everything! But now the only thing that applies to my resume is that I was a captain for one year on my college team :(

PAWS UP! YOU WIN BUDDY!

I taught my dog to fetch beer from the fridge!

A truly stressful job can destroy your self-esteem and confidence. It's been said that people don't necessarily leave jobs, they leave management.

Indeed, bad management can leave you feeling unmoored and unsupported.

There has been a wider conversation about hostile work environments over the last couple of years now that the COVID-19 pandemic has afforded many people the opportunity to switch careers and/or call it quits with their awful jobs.

No job is worth your mental and physical health.

People shared their stories with us after Redditor yourmaeve asked the online community,

"Redditors who changed careers from a high paying but stressful job to a lower paying but low stress job, was it worth it, why or why not?"

People Share The Most Amazing Facts They Know About The Universe

There is so much we don't know about the universe.

So much, in fact, that everything there is to learn about the universe will probably never be discovered.

Mostly because the universe is constantly growing and evolving, leaving us with new things to learn about the universe literally every day.

Constantly filling our minds with uncertainty, sometimes fear, about the otherwise vast unknown.

All of this makes all facts we've discovered about the universe all the more fascinating, whether or not we have even the slightest interest in science.

Monogamous People Explain Whether Infidelity Would Result In An Instant Breakup

Romantic relationships have evolved considerably over the course of time.

Today, more and more couples who are otherwise committed to one another, in marriage or in word, have "open" relationships, where they are permitted to see other people on the side.

Also, many people are open about being in polyamorous relationships, where they might be equally committed and loving to more than one person.

Which isn't to say, however, that monogamous relationships are a thing of the past.

As many people continue to commit, body and soul, to one person and one person only.

And should one half of that couple break that commitment, it could be the effective end of that relationship.

The mark of a good piece of fiction is when one feels as if they actually know the characters.

Be it a film, television series or novel, there are some beloved characters we wish were actually our friends in real life, or whom we feel as if we've actually known all our lives.

As a result, when one of these characters dies, we sometimes feel as if we've actually lost a loved one.

Sometimes finding ourselves in a state of literal grieving.
