People Reveal What Caused Them To Quit Their Job On The Very First Day

Starting a new job can be really stressful. You don't know anyone, you might not be 100% clear on your duties, and it can just feel like everyone is waiting for you to mess up. Not every job starts out like this, but for some reason for every service industry job I've had, that description feels pretty spot on. It can take a while before you see the red flags in your job. You might be exploited for years before you realize, and that's the tea.

Here are some people who just knew day one, "This sh*t ain't for me."

Men Admit The Most Annoying Things About Their Private Parts

There are a lot of perks of being a man. Getting paid better, cheaper toiletries, no periods... need I go on? But there are also a lot of annoying things that men have to deal with that women just don't have to worry about. Men get ridiculed for crying or showing any emotion for that matter. They are much more limited in terms of fashion and overall taste, and they have this thing hanging off their body at all times.

To be fair, women also have 'things' hanging off of their own bodies, but it's not exactly the same.

On Reddit, men are sharing the most annoying things about having a you-know-what, and they are quite interesting.

People Expose The Weird Things That Probably Only Happen In Their Countries

One of the most exciting parts of the internet is how we are able to easily meet and connect with people all over the world. It's so interesting to compare cultures with real people, rather than just basing our expectations on movies and books. Hearing from a real person is definitely the way to go. Plus they can share all the weird sh*t that they have in their country, and it's usually not the kind of stuff you'll see in a TV show. If you think your country is weird, maybe this thread will make you realize, really, all countries are weird.

People Reveal Their Most Insane Las Vegas Experiences

Vegas is a staple of American culture. 'What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas' started out as a marketing ploy to encourage people to party in the desert, but boy does it ring true to this day. I had a blast partying in Vegas, even though my group of friends was so tame that we didn't even gamble. After unearthing a Reddit thread about people's experiences in Vegas from ten years ago, I realized just how tame our trip was compared to other people who engaged in all different types of debauchery in the desert. Scroll down to live vicariously through these crazy characters of Vegas' past.

Craziest 'Psycho Roommate' Stories We've Ever Heard

The Cheezcake ladies have been sharing psycho roomie stories for a while now, but none compare to the gem of a Reddit thread we've stumbled upon this week. This week is 10 years old, so hopefully, none of the original posters are in touch with the psycho roomies they posted about in any shape or form. If they are, you bet I'll be praying for them every day. Based on this insane thread, the psycho roomies of the early 2000s were even crazier than what we're dealing with today. I didn't think it was possible, but here we are. Scroll down for the horror roomie stories of Reddit's past.

I asked the RA to talk to him (after I did and failed) but he wouldn't because he thought it would come off as racist (dude was Pakistani). Needless to say, nobody would go

This Week's Batch Of Horrifying Drunk Texts (May 6, 2021)

Drinking and letting loose at the end of a long, hard week can be so rejuvenating. After all, there's nothing like a crazy Saturday night with friends to lift our spirits in preparation for another week. However, nights spent drinking are often followed by regretdepending on how the night goes. We often send very wrong things to very wrong people, and there's no way to take back what we sent. But we can stand together in solidarity and laugh at ourselves and the stupid sh*t we sent out. This week's batch of horrifying drunk texts are from an iconic 4-year-old Reddit thread, and suddenly I don't feel so bad about all the idiotic acts I've committed in my own life thus far. Scroll down to see what I mean.

Comments Which Caused People To Peace-Out In The Middle Of A Date

It takes a lot of confidence to go on a date. There are a million ways it can go wrong, and yet we still manage to sum up the power to do it all the frickin time. I believe we all deserve a round of applause for consistently putting ourselves out there. Most of the time our dates do not lead to something bigger, but we learn from each one. We gain lessons from every person we open ourselves up to. But sometimes that lesson is just: Stop going after a-holes.

People Reveal The Most Awkward Thing Someone Said To Them Right After Having Sex

Good sex isn't just about the act itself; the nuances before and after can help determine whether you have a positive sexual experience. From engaging in foreplay before sex to having good pillow talk after, it all adds up. Some people don't quite understand the social rules of post-sex conversation, however, and it turns out that it's pretty easy to kill the mood once sex is over with one short sentence. Redditors share some of the most awkward things a partner has said to them immediately post-sex, and if these don't turn you off someone, I don't know what will.

People Confess Past Obsessions They Swore Were Not A Phase But Ended Up Being A Phase

A large part of growing up is gaining new obsessions. While it's happening, we like to believe that, 'It's not a phase, mom!' But it doesn't take too long to realize, yep, that was definitely a phase. For example, I used to be obsessed with Spongebob. Yeah, Mr. Squarepants. I actually wanted him painted all over my room. I guess I thought I was going to forever be into iconic Nickelodeon shows... but alas, this phased probably lasted no longer than 6 months.

People are sharing the things they used to be obsessed with that they didn't exactly take with them into their adult life. Classic.

People's 'How I Accidentally Caught My Spouse Cheating' Horror Stories

Being cheated on in a relationship is one of the most heartbreaking things a person can go through. While there is no good way to find out that it's happening, some cheating reveals are harsher than others. For example, I'm sure most people would prefer to have their partner sit them down and break the news then walk in on them in bed with someone else. But I guess when you're cheating on your spouse, their feelings aren't exactly the first thing on your mind. These Redditors share their heartbreaking horror stories of discovering their partner was unfaithful, and to be honest, they are pretty brutal.

Woman Asks If She's Wrong For Blasting Music To Drown Out Neighbor's Loud Kids

Moving to a new house is always a roll of the dice regarding what type of neighbors you'll get. You might luck out and end up living next to people who respect your privacy, don't make a loud noise, and are friendly at just the appropriate level. Or, you might land yourself nightmare neighbors who make your life a misery. Unfortunately, there isn't any way of knowing until you've moved. One woman, whose new neighbors fell into the latter category — in the form of noisy kids, decided to take action and drown out the noise by playing loud music. She posted on Reddit's Am I the As*hole, asking whether she was in the wrong for doing so.

Girlfriend Outraged Over Her Man Giving Female Friend A Ride During Medical Emergency

If it's not your first time on the rodeo, then you know relationships are complicated. Jealousy is often an issue that comes up, but people seriously need to learn how to trust their significant others (unless there have been acts of cheating in the past). On Reddit's infamous "Am I The A**hole?" subreddit, a Redditor told a quick tale about how her friend's boyfriend gave her a ride because her brother with a health condition needed his meds STAT. When she got back, however, the guy's girlfriend was upset that the two were alone in a car together because they dated once upon a time. The GF is obvs super insecure, and should probably discuss this with her BF instead of taking it out on her friend, in my humble opinion. Scroll down for what Redditors had to say about this drama.

Being on a dating app can be very exhausting. Some people are so cringy and it seems that nobody has told them. Like, I hate to break it to you Chad, putting women down is so 20th century.

People Reveal The Almost Unbelievable Reasons Their Teachers Got Fired

Students usually remember teachers for one of two reasons: they were either excellent or terrible. Great teachers do more than teach their subject; they believe in their students, give them life skills, and inspire them to be the best versions of themselves. The inadequate teachers do just the opposite and can cause irreparable damage to the confidence and growth of a student who may be struggling. And then you have the teachers who are SO bad that they got fired. Whether it's for sleeping with a student or embezzling school money, there's always one who thinks they'll get away with it. An AskReddit thread has got people sharing the reasons their teachers were fired, and the responses are so shockingly sad, it's a wonder how they even qualified to become teachers in the first place.

People Reveal Funny And Ridiculous Reasons Celebrities Blocked Them On Social Media

Social media has allowed regular people like you and me to have access to and communicate with celebrities like never before. Gone are the days where the only way you could interact with a celebrity was by lining up for hours after a concert to try to get a glimpse of them. Nowadays, you can DM them on Instagram, have them retweet you, or even pay for a personalized video on Cameo. Sure, they might have millions of followers, but that doesn't mean that they don't see people's mean comments or get their feelings hurt, even if it's from a total stranger. But imagine being blocked by a celebrity!
