17+ Things That Will Never Change

Paddy Clarke 1 Apr 2020

Despite how much the world changes over time, there are some things that remain solid constants in the landscape of the world. For instance, cats will always be assholes, there will always be people inexplicably blaming videogames for all forms of violence, and there will always be passive-aggressive annoying neighbors around.

So, with this idea in mind, please enjoy these 17+ things that will never, ever change!

1. It's Always The Video-Games Fault

Also, where's Marilyn Manson? Normally he gets the blame for whatever is happening somehow.

2. Cats Will Always Abuse The System

Reddit | [deleted]

Apparently, the cat had been convincing all four roommates that he needed feeding each day because he acted like he was starving. They each didn't know that the other roommates were feeding him. This was their solution, with the hope that he will slim down a bit.

3. A Confusing Age

No one has any idea what you're meant to be doing between those ages. I mean, you're technically an adult, but you also sort of aren't? It's very confusing.

4. "The Same Old Fears."

Not only will there always be shops trying to write amusing signs to advertise their businesses, but there will always be people complaining that this isn't the right album artwork for this quote. No music fans are as annoyingly picky as Pink Floyd fans.

5. "Some Things Never Change."

Anyone that says that they weren't scared by the boat scene in the 1971 Charlie And The Chocolate Factory film is a barefaced liar!

6. Star Wars Fans Never Change

When the sky rains down molten lava and the four horsemen arrive from an ephemeral realm, there will still be one Star Wars fan moaning about the most recent Star Wars movie.

7. "My Nana asked me to fix her phone because 'the outside clock is always showing the wrong time'."

Reddit | ImRachaelGreep

No matter how often you explain the new phone to your grandparents, you can always expect a dozen phone calls asking you questions about it!

8. You Don't Need To take Notes Today

Twitter | 702Austin

I can sense that there will be a lot of people out there who feel personally attacked by this. Also, there will be a lot of people like me who are thinking, "People used their planners for things other than doodling?"

9. There Will Always Be Passive Aggressive Neighbors.

The person who posted this explained the situation as such:

"The HOA in my friend's neighborhood recently threatened her neighbors with a fine if they didn’t hide their trash cans, even though they’ve been in the same spot for over a decade. This is their solution."

10. "The scariest costume of all."

Reddit | emtdp

Any biscuit tin that has been left alone for more than a week automatically becomes filled with sewing accouterments.

11. "Written on the bathroom wall at Glasgow University."

Reddit | Marlingss

Writing on bathroom walls and slamming arts students, these are two long-standing traditions of humanity ⏤ and I feel personally attacked.

12. "My two older children were trying to lay out all of their Pokémon cards, but the youngest kept intervening, so they duct taped him to a chair."

Reddit | SavetheUnicornssss

Ah, the annoying younger sibling. They truly are a staple of humanity, always there to break whatever it is that you've put a lot of work into.

13. Don't Make Eye Contact

Twitter | rainnwilson

I hate it when you see people you know when you're out doing shopping and they start making a beeline for you. I'm doing my shopping, I don't want to chat Steve!

14. Unsettling TV Habits

Twitter | brianfraga

Two things that the general public will always be fascinated by are other people's failing marriages and serial killers. If you're trying to write a successful TV show ⏤ use either, or both, of these to crush the Netflix algorithms.

15. No One Ever Knows

Twitter | Jenn_H_Scott

Does anyone really know what the wattage of their microwave is? I normally just take a guess or do it for the longest amount of time it recommends to be safe.

16. "What it's like working with all women and their lunch purses..."

Reddit | Nyrfan82

I don't think that this only applies to women. Have you worked with someone who is a gym bunny before? Damn all of that boiled chicken in Tupperware pots. Have a Pot Noodle like a normal person.

17. Living In Chaos

Twitter | ChaseMit

Sometimes I want the receipt, sometimes I don't! Never try and assume which I will choose, it is the only element of excitement I have left in my life.

18. "After not taking attendance all quarter, my TA was out of town on exam day. This was the last question."

Reddit | dovahkid

Why is there always one student who never turns up? I also hate it when they moan about not knowing what they should be studying for the exam. Just turn up! It's one hour out of your day! You're not suddenly amazingly cool just for being a lazy asshat.

19. Sure!

Twitter | 1followernodad

I wish that I could have the confidence to say "no" more. I spend so much time trying to find needlessly convoluted explanations as to why I can't do things.

20. Respect My Flaws

Twitter | EwdatsGROSS

No matter how far the journey is to wherever I'm going, or how much I plan, I will always be exactly 20 minutes late. I don't know why or how this happens, but it does.
