Another Redditor added, “He thought you absorb a gallon of water when you shower so he didn’t need to drink water.”

Terrible grammar and spelling

A user commented, “She kept stating the big revelation of her story with “lord and behold” instead of “lo and behold.” I told her she was using the wrong word, but I was the idiot because you behold the lord. Anyways, lord and behold – she fu**ed five other dudes, so we’re on a more than temporary break.”

No Interest in Learning

One comment was, “He could not find our country on Europe’s map. The countries were written in bold, and the capitals too.”

Another comment read, “When my ex asked me where they grew spaghetti.”

Poor hygiene

A Redditor replied, “When he thought going to the dentist every 6 months meant he didn’t have to brush his teeth.”

A second Redditor commented, “She thought her doctor gave her medicine for a sore throat for the rest of her life. So she would get a sore throat 6 months after having strep and expect the pharmacy to just give her a prescription again.” 

Constantly Confused

One Redditor replied, “She didn’t know that yogurt and pudding were not the same things. She thought it was like how the British call fries “chips.” She had been eating pudding and granola for breakfast for months and congratulated herself for being so healthy.”

Oblivious to Everything

A funny comment was, “I’m going to throw myself under the bus here because I think it’s funny, but I used to think horns in cars only had so much air to use, so you had to use your horn sparingly and only when you really needed it or it would run out… I feel like someone had to have told me this while growing up.”

Can’t handle money

A user commented, “She didn’t understand that you actually have to pay what you spent on credit cards. The credit amount she had was supposed to be her monthly limit that just resets each month.”

No sense of humor

One Redditor replied, “When I made a joke, and the person said. “I don’t like you.”

A second Redditor added, “When we went to a comedy show, and her response to every hoke was, “I don’t get it.”

A funny comment was, “We were talking about dinosaurs, and he was shocked to hear they were real. Then he proceeded to ask me if they really breathed fire. He thought dinosaurs and dragons were the same thing.”

Another funny one was, “When she told me she was a flat-earth person.”

Bad With Social Cues

A user responded, “She got thrown out from a bar and nearly arrested because another woman complimented my shirt, and she was convinced that meant she wanted to bang me.”

Another user added, “The fool would bang on my dashboard and scream the name of a certain restaurant whenever I drove past it. After almost getting into a wreck twice, I asked him why he was trying to kill us. He said he did it because “it was his thing.” He never rode in my car again.”

Easily influenced

Ignorant of current events

A Redditor wrote, “When she thought that it was better to throw clothes out than to donate them because she didn’t want anyone to “steal her style.” 

A second Redditor added, “She was just selfish with everything.” 

Disrespectful behavior

One person added, “The night I said that, I thought I smelled gas, and they grabbed a lighter and struck it without hesitation.”

Another person added, “When she asked me “Have you ever had your hair set on fire”? and then lit my hair on fire. We done.”

Inability to make decisions
