What do you think is the dumbest thing that someone has ever said to you?
I want you to think long and hard for a minute…
Okay, what did you come up with? Actually, hold that thought and save your stories for the comments section.
Let’s take a look at some really dumb things people actually said to folks from AskReddit.
1. A bright one.
“My sister, at 17 and a half years of age, said: “Is that why they’re called containers? Because they contain things?””
2. Not here to serve you.
“When I was around 10 my older brother had a friend who hung out at our place a lot.
One day as I walked through the room where the two of them were watching TV the friend stopped me. Apart from saying hello we never talked to each other before. He said I could pop into the kitchen and make some pancakes for them.
I said I wasn’t there to serve them and I didn’t even know how to make bloody pancakes. His stunned answer: “but… you’re a girl!””
3. The periodic table.
“A girl in 8th grade honors science asks, after our pleas and explanations that she shouldn’t embarrass herself, raises her hand and asks so the entire class can hear, “Why isn’t wood on the periodic table?”
I never liked her anyways.”
4. Not sure what that means.
“I overheard a kid in middle school tell his friend that Canadian hippies are legal when they cross the US/Canada border.”
5. It was faked!
“Get this: the moon landing was faked by Russian scientists trying to get us not to go to the moon.
And all of the astronauts were replaced by Russian clones.
Said by a kid in class…”
6. Science class.
“In 7th grade science, we were learning about fossils. Not a super in depth lesson, but just how they are created and how the affect the earth.
If you’ve never heard about Lucy, she was apparently found in a lake bed, fossilized from about 3 million years ago. She is one of the first “humanoid thingies” ever found.
Anyway, so we watched a video about her, and then the whole class was talking and suddenly a girl raised her hand and said, “how do they know what her name was?” and we had to legit explain it to her that scientists named her.
She was serious.”
7. Major eye roll.
“I am the product of an Irish American father and a Mexican mother (she is still a Mexican citizen).
In grade school, with mostly a Hispanic population, I was told that my mother was not Mexican because she wasn’t brown and didn’t have an accent.
My mom grew up speaking 3 languages, including English, from childhood. All I could do was roll my eyes at the ignorance.”
8. They’re out there…
“A friend of mine tried to convince me that mermaids were real.
His reasoning was because he saw the mockumentary about mermaids on discovery channel and were convinced they were real.
I expected that from my 6 year old niece but not from a 29 year old man.”
9. How rude!
“When I was 12 someone in my class asked if we could be friends.
I said no because she screamed at me every time I was late to class but then called me rude if I talked back (she was one of those kids that thought she was a teacher).
She said “BuT yOu ShOuLdN’t NoT bE fRiEnDs WiTh SoMeOnE jUsT bEcAuSe ThEy’Ve BeEn MeAn To YoU””
10. The trifecta.
“The earth is flat, the moon landing was fake, and my all time favorite, Karens aren’t a threat to society.”
11. Good Lord.
“My friend was pressuring me to take off my mask, she kept saying inhaling your own germs can kill you, especially when you’re breathing heavy.
Let’s just say, we don’t get along as well as we used to anymore.”
“”I went on a vacation to Hawaii and swam with Tortoises.”
This was my teacher, and he wouldn’t believe me that Tortoises couldn’t swim even after I looked it up.
He though Turtles from Hawaii were called Tortoises.”
13. Mullet lady.
“One time I was at Petco with my parrots and some random lady came and told me ”The only animal that should be here are dogs and they must have a face covering on”.
I know this sounds fake but this lady was wearing a mullet anything is possible.”
How about you?
