The Little Things That Everyone Universally Enjoys

We spend so much time complaining on the internet that we forget about the little things that make life unique. We need to shift our focus to the little things that make life worth living. You might see your morning coffee as a simple cup of coffee, but Dolly Parton sees it as a "cup of ambition" and that's exactly the kind of energy we need to revamp our lives. A recent AskReddit thread celebrates things that people universally enjoy, and some of them are wholesome, whereas others are hilarious. Scroll down for some internet inspo.

Woman Takes Advantage Of Stranger's Offer To Cover Groceries, Tries To Buy Expensive Wine

Generosity is undoubtedly a positive trait to have. Those that hoard everything to themselves and never offer help to others tend to be cold individuals. Help can come in many forms as well, it doesn't have to be financial. If you don't have the funds to offer to pay for something important, you can offer to help them find someone, or be there for them as they go through a tough time. In the end, it usually feels good to help someone as well, especially if they didn't ask. But what doesn't feel good is being taken advantage of, boy is that an uncomfortable feeling.

Things People Definitely Were Not Meant To Overhear, But Can Never Forget

As humans, we are natural people watchers and eavesdroppers. It's simply in our DNA, how can we not be somewhat interested in what other people are doing or saying? It's already startling enough to consider the fact that there are complete strangers all over the world living entire lives that we don't take any part in. Like how is that possible? And it's not even just people across the globe, there are literally people in your city, town, suburb, whatever, that have an entire existence that will never involve you. This is why it is so precious when we have these random eavesdropping moments, that give you a peek into someone's existence, no context, no nothing, that's all you get. Thrilling, isn't it?

People Tell The 'One Rule' They Promised Themselves They'd Never Break, No Matter What

As you go through life, you learn certain lessons along the way. Unfortunately, some of these lessons are learned the hard way and come from sh*tty situations. But, these lessons hold you in good stead for the rest of your life and teach you more about yourself, and that's always a good thing. Hearing other people's valuable life advice is always useful, which is why it's your lucky day. People on Reddit shared the "one rule" they promised themselves they'd never break, no matter what. Whether they were life lessons or general principles, it's interesting to see how other people live their lives to set them on the straight and narrow.

Unforgettable Things People Were Told By Their High School Teachers

Woman Reprimanded After Not Preparing Vegan Options For Surprise Dinner-Guest

It's really common these days for people to have a few dietary restrictions. There's nothing inherently wrong with excluding a couple of things for health, or environmental reasons, but obviously, some restrictions are more serious than others. Whatever the case may be, if you know you have some pretty strict food rules, you can't really go around assuming people will prepare the appropriate food for you. Unless you wear a sign everywhere you go, you need to vocalize to people what you need, we're not psychics after all.

Homophobic Grandparents Trap And Pester Teen Grandson About His Sexuality

Grandparents have the potential to have some very special relationships with their grandchildren. But something about the generational differences can either bring them really close or be a barrier that holds them back from being able to relate to each other. We so often hear the term, "oh, they're from a different time, don't take what they say to heart" but that doesn't really make any sense. Sure they were alive during a time where 'things were different' but they were also alive during the times where those 'things' changed, so why couldn't they also shift their outlook?

Red Flags That We Love To See In Fiction, But Would Be A Hard Pass In Real Life

In real life, we like to have standards for ourselves. We wouldn't appreciate it if a random guy showed up at our house unannounced, or threw rocks at our window in the middle of the night, you see, that's called trespassing. But in movies, books, plays, we eat all that sh*t up like a steaming bowl of brown sugar oatmeal. A troubled boy who has slight anger issues and treats most women terribly? Sounds like a classic love interest from an erotic novel, and obviously we're rooting for him.

Odd Sleepover Stories Which Are Forever Unforgettable

When you think of sleepovers, you imagine girls sitting up all night, painting each other's nails, talking about boys, watching romcoms, and eating pizza. Or, at least, that's what my sleepovers looked like. I can't speak for guys, but from what I've heard, they're pretty similar. Just swap painting nails for playing video games, talking about girls instead of boys, and watching horror movies instead of romcoms, and you've got the idea. But these sleepover stories are a far cry from the idyllic childhood pictures I've just painted and, instead, are creepy and weird. Check them out and share your weirdest sleepover stories in the comments section!

Weirdest Things Women Were Accused Of Doing To Attract Male Attention

Ladies, the men have figured us out! Apparently, they already realized that every single thing we do, every decision we make, and every place we go to... Well, it's all a part of our secret communal plan to attract as much male attention as possible. How did they figure it out so quickly? What are we supposed to do now? Time for an emergency group meeting.

But seriously, women are sharing on Reddit some of the crazy things they've been accused of doing solely to attract male attention, and it really seems like any behavior can be interpreted as just that... Oh well.

People Disclose Things That Make Someone An Immediate No For Them

Everybody has their own lists of turn-on's and turn-off's, we can't all be into the same things, that would be hella boring. We shouldn't use these as rules in relationships, however, it would probably be useful to know a couple of someone's deal-breakers before starting up with them, they might be really simple things to avoid. Plus, you could probably tell more about a person from their dislikes more than their likes sometimes. For instance, if a guy hates feminism, you better run in the opposite direction.

Women Reveal Questions They've Always Wanted To Ask Men

It's probably closed-minded to think that men and women are completely different and thus are unable to understand each other. But, let's be real, there are a couple of behaviors men engage in that are exceptionally confusing to a lot of women. The same obviously works vice-versa. Clearly, these are all generalizations, but men and women do get pushed towards different kinds of social roles, so these could all be a result of those socialization processes. Who knows? All we know is we want answers buddies!

People Throw Out Sure Fire Ways To Get Someone To NOT Want To Sleep With You

Usually, people need advice for how to start up with or attract someone they're interested in. But it's equally as valuable to have some tactics up your sleeve if you're ever in a situation where you seriously want the person in front of you to lose all attraction towards you. They don't teach you these kinds of things in school, and honestly, it's probably for the best. But hey, who knows if you'll ever be in a situation where you want to 'de-hornify' the person you're on a date with. Obviously, you can always just leave, but there are definitely more interesting and permanent ways to freak them out.

Men Admit Things They Wish Women Knew About Them

Men can seem like quite the mystery sometimes, even though they often like to brag about how they're very simple creatures. The fact of the matter is that we are all complex people with different passions and desires. Going out with one man doesn't mean you've got them all 'figured out.' If you treat guys as if they're completely different than women, well you kind of put them in a box. News flash: at the end of the day we all want to be loved.
