Good things come to those who wait…
How many times have you heard that in your life?
Probably a lot! But is it true?
Definitely not for everyone…
AskReddit users sounded off about the popular sayings that they think are total bulls**t.
Let’s take a look.
1. Sure they do…
“”Only the guilty explain themselves.”
Sure they do, because wrongly accusing someone can do plenty harm!”
2. Oh, boy…
““If you smelt it, you dealt it”.
I know for a fact that there have been several times that I had smelt it, and know absolutely that I had not dealt it!”
“”Love means never having to say you’re sorry.”
If anything it means the opposite, love means actually having to say you’re sorry and that you messed up.
Of course you apologize to the ones you love.”
4. Absolutely not.
““If you can’t deal with my worst, you don’t deserve my best”.
No. Hell no.
Closest thing to a Surgeon General’s warning label for people.”
5. Not a great idea.
“”Buy the biggest house that you can afford.”
This is terrible financial advice.”
6. Depends on the situation.
“”Forgive and forget.”
The more fitting saying is “forgive but never forget.” To be clear, this is NOT to say one should hold a grudge.
Rather, it’s just a reminder to watch out for red flags/early warning signs of repeat offenses based on past experiences – either in general or particularly with the forgiven person.”
“”We only use 10% of our brains.”
No neurologist has ever uttered anything that could even be misinterpreted to conclude that.
It’s a completely made up “fact”.”
8. Not always…
“‘The truth always comes out’ or ‘secrets never stay buried’ or some bulls**t variation of that.
I can think of SO many examples of crimes remaining unsolved forever or m**derers d**ng in prison without revealing where they hid the bodies, etc.
I wonder how many of histories absolutely enormous secrets were never uncovered because those few individuals who knew about them literally took it with them to their graves.”
9. Slow and steady.
“”Slow and steady wins the race.”
Doesn’t really make any sense.
The true moral of the story The Tortoise and the Hare is “Hubris is God’s mightiest sword” since the hare’s arrogance was his downfall in the race.”
“”The customer is always right.”
We should just change it to, “the customer has the money.””
“”Never go to sleep angry.”
Nonsense. Sleep it off.
We’ll both feel better in the morning. I’m not giving up sleep to fight.”
12. It’s complicated.
“”Blood is thicker than water.”
Said by a**sive family members to guilt people into being loyal to toxic behavior.”
“”Nothing is impossible.”
No. Many things are impossible.
The universe is built on the idea that some things are possible and some things are impossible. If nothing was impossible, reality would collapse.”
