What Popular Things Really Need to Go Away? 13 People Spoke Up.

You know what I’m tired of seeing?


Yes, I understand that some of these folks are doing good things for others, but I feel like the majority of them are just totally vapid and empty people who are basically doing nothing for a living…

And I wouldn’t mind seeing that trend go away for good…

AskReddit users talked about what popular things they really want to go away.

Let’s take a look.

1. Overworked.

“Glorifying sleep deprivation as a metric of hard work.

Same with people who glorify working an ungodly number of hours every week.

Research has suggested that your productivity declines after about 50 hours of work.”

2. They need it now!

“Women’s pants pockets not being usable.

The fake sewn closed mini pockets need to go.

Real pockets for women!”

3. Creepy.

“Parents using kids for likes.

There’s a mommy Youtuber who documented her entire adoption process of a known special needs child from a foreign country.

She was made very aware of the challenges of raising that child and she made her audience aware of how much she was sacrificing to do it because it was her destiny or whatever. Then things got too tough for her she “re-homed” the child.

Absolutely vile human being.”

4. Let’s hope so.


I don’t even answer my phone anymore.

Unless it says “mom”, “boss”, or “wife” it’s going to voicemail.”

5. Yes.

“Worshipping politicians and celebrities.

And politicians being celebrities.”

6. Pretty weird when you think about it.

“Pharmaceuticals having commercials.

Why are you spending millions(billions?) In advertising for products people need a prescription to buy?

Cousin is a doc and days it makes it a pain when patients come in and are hell bent on certain meds they saw commercials for.”

7. Lame.

““Pranks” and “social experiments” which involve harassing people in public.

I really h**e the ones that prank someone trying to do the right thing. Pranks that target people doing something wrong like bait bikes or whatever are dangerous and stupid but at least they are pranking people for stealing.

But pranking people trying to help and such just teaches us not to help others in public because it might be a prank.”

8. Get over it.

“Glorifying any kind of bad or red flag behaviors as some kind of trophy, or “better or tougher than you.” Including the sleep deprivation stuff.

Example: “I only got 4 hours of sleep last night,” “Anxiety meds? heck I just take a shot, grow a pair, and go on”

“Welcome to the real world,” “You think you’ve got it bad! blah blah blah”.”

9. Wow!

“Celebrities making headlines for doing normal things.

Going to buy groceries, having a baby, eating in restaurants… I don’t understand why some people care so much…”

10. A big one.

“Opinion over fact.

And opinion branded as fact.”

11. See it all the time.

“People acting all tough talking s**t on social media, being vague and then getting to deny and avoid all accountability because “it could be about anyone” or “it’s not directed at any one”.

Hiding behind screens to be nasty to people has gotten real old.”

12. Not even close.

““Everyone’s opinion and knowledge is equal”.

No. The idea that I’m not a doctor but I have had a cold so i can diagnose you is just stupid.

People study and work in fields for years so yes, they are the subject matter experts.”

13. Gross.

“”If you can’t handle me at my worst, you don’t deserve me at my best”

AKA – ‘I can treat you like s**t because sometimes I’m good fun’.”

We’d love to hear from you.
