Irritated People Share Stories About The Most Ignorant Things They’ve Heard

Every now and then we all say things that aren’t the brightest that we want to immediately shove back into our mouths and forget we ever said it. However, then there are people who unapologetically spew things that make you worry for the fate of humanity. Here are 25 people sharing the most ignorant things they’ve ever had the displeasure of hearing.

1. Sometimes even the people closest to you can say something that makes you question their IQ, but more often than not, there’s that one person you can count on to be like a pull string doll of dim-witted utterance. One user asked the Reddit community, “What is the most ignorant thing someone has said to you?” Naturally, people came forward with the most moronic things they’ve heard that will make you want to slam your head against a wall repeatedly. One Redditor shared a bewildering response he received after complimenting a girl he knew who had just gotten plastic surgery. Making sure she didn’t feel insecure, frank_grimes1, told this acquaintance that her nose job looked good to which she responded, “I didn’t do it for me. I don’t want my kids to be born with big noses.” Yikes. Not sure what’s scarier, the fact that she thinks her kids will somehow inherit her cosmetic surgery procedure or that she plans on reproducing.

2. Reddit user, cronnron, shared ignorance from the last person you’d hope to hear it from, a teacher. “When we were studying astronomy in the third grade, the teacher asked us which planet is closest to earth. I raised my hand and answered, ‘Venus.’ She not only snickered but replied, ‘No. It’s the moon!’ The entire class laughed at me.”
