Parents sometimes tell their kid's outrageous things, and they will believe everything they say. Unfortunately, as they grow older, they'll discover what's true. People share the lies they were fed as a child on a popular Reddit thread on the Ask Men Subreddit.

'Ignore them, and they'll go away.' This is not how bullies work. These people are looking for a soft target to assert dominance. They aren't looking to get a rise out of you, they're looking to control/dominate you. If you ignore their efforts you let them know you're a soft target and they'll come back for more and more every chance they get.

My soccer coach told 12-year-old me that soda would stunt my growth. I still don’t drink soda at age 30.

Your employer will care that you repeated a school year.
17. caduceun says:
'Money does not buy happiness.' The f*ck it doesn't. The amount of happiness being wealthy has brought me is astronomical. I grew up poor, so I didn't know what it was like to be well off. After experiencing this, I don't think I can go back.
