The world is full of traditions.
Some are good and some are bad.
But are there some that just shouldn’t even exist anymore?
According to these AskReddit users, the answer is YES.
Let’s see what they had to say.
Here in Sri Lanka, that’s still surprisingly common. I remember a couple of years ago a cashier at a bookshop we go to was talking to my mom about an arranged marriage which her mom was forcing her into.
It’s disgusting and I wish arranged/forced marriages would disappear from the face of the earth.”
2. Brilliant marketing.
“Diamond engagement ring being X months salary.
Brilliant marketing, but utterly ridiculous.
I say this as a girl who isn’t inherently against sparkly rocks.”
3. Hello, princess.
“The wedding industry.
Every bride is a princess all of a sudden.”
“When the sheets are hung outside after a couples’ wedding night.
Like a trophy for the whole village to see.”
“Over the top public proposals.
Putting someone on the spot like that is like giving them no other option BUT to say yes.”
“Public accounting is terrible.
Audit people often do 70-80 hours a week Jan-March, if not more.
I am so so glad I got out of that.”
7. Over the top.
“Over-the-top baby gender reveals.
No one on the internet cares about your baby’s gender, so stop trying to overdo it to go viral.”
8. Seen enough of that.
“Influencers putting their kids on social media for entertainments sake without their consent.
I predict 10-15 years from now there will be a ton of court cases of grown up kids of influencers suing their parents.”
“Female g**ital mutilation.
Hands down, one of the most barbaric acts in existence.”
“How tips are necessary.
No. Pay them properly.
Tips are supposed to be gifts of appreciation, not income supplement.”
“Big fat weddings. Especially in Indian subcontinent.
I understand the excitement and all but spending life time of savings to celebrate weddings is just insane. Instead use that money to build up your life togather.
And don’t even get me started on the amount of food that goes waste after such parties.”
12. Good point.
“Not teaching kids life skills in school like finances, networking, how to negotiate.
Instead, let’s make them remember random things that they will never need to apply in real life like “prime numbers”.”
“The “customers are always right” approach in retail work.
Yeah like this random person knows more about my store than I do working here.”
