What Industry Will You Not Miss if It Goes Away? Here’s What People Said.

If we’re being honest, there are probably a lot of industries that could go the way of the dodo and no one would really miss them all that much.

But we’re here to get specific today!

So take a look at what AskReddit users had to say about this and we’ll see you in the comments!

1. Scammers.


My wife has wasted too much money on the s**t.”

2. Rip-off artists.

“Ticket scalping and ticket services like “Ticketmaster.”

They have artificially inflated the price of tickets to a ridiculous extent and effectively priced out countless fans.”

3. Yes.

“Puppy Mills

A business that breeds puppies for sale, typically on an intensive basis and in conditions regarded as inhumane.”

4. Predators.

“Predatory and Pay-day Loans.

We had so many of these places around here (low income area, total shock and surprise that they would set up shop here!) and I’ve noticed over the years most of them have closed and are other things now.

It makes me so happy to see.”

5. Ouch.


I have a relative that has owned 4 weeks at one for over 20 years. Last time I heard, he’s paying over $5000/year total in “maintenance fees” whether he uses it or not.

He’s used it a handful of times.”

6. Scandalous.


Now, truthfully, it’s been a while since I read the old good book. But I’m fairly certain this was the very thing Jesus was preaching against.

In short, f**k Joel Osteen and his fancy cars.”

7. Barbaric.

“The health insurance industry as it currently exists in the US.

It’s nothing but a barbaric, extortionist system that exists to deny people care, f**ks with people endlessly before and during access to care, and squeezing people as hard as possible financially.

It’s indefensible and it k**ls thousands of people every year.”

8. Unnecessary.

“Tax Preparation Companies like TurboTax and H&R block.

The government knows how much I owe so this entire industry is unnecessary and could very easily not exist if they just told me how much I have to pay.”

9. Thoughts?

“House Flippers. They completely wipe out the bottom market of people scraping together funds who CAN afford a house just cant compete with their all cash deals.

And to the “bUt NoBoDY wOuLd BuY ThOSE HoMeS”…there are special rehab loans specifically intended for fixer uppers. Also many ppl are handy and some of the houses just need cosmetic refreshing and are perfectly habitable.

It takes away the bottom portion of affordable homes and places them back on the market at premium top prices so rather than a range of pricing spread out across income ranges during a housing shortage, EVERYONE is competing for the same price range.”

10. I don’t even know what this is.

“Fast fashion.

Seriously, I don’t know why no one is realizing how much the quality of clothing has plummeted since the 1980s.”

11. Please!

“Phone scammers.

I remember
those happy days when the Do Not Call list worked.

Now I get half a dozen spam calls a day.”

12. Extortion.

“The wedding industry.

It’s straight up extortion. It also keeps creating more things to pay for, like half the stuff my friends and cousins are doing our parents have never heard of.”
