People Share Their Best 'Don't Knock It 'Til You Try It' Stories
The world is full of interesting experiences, ready for you to go out and take in. Unfortunately, most days you're tired after work and all you want to do is go home and relax on the couch with some Netflix. Fortunately, to really tap into what the world has to offer, sometimes it's as close as your own shower.
Reddit user, u/delayedinstantkarma, wanted to know what you might have missed out on when they asked:
That. Extra. Crunch.
Putting chips on a sandwich for that extra delicious crunch
Not Gonna Lie: I wanted to do that for so long but always forgot, thanks for reminding me
You Don't Even Have To Share SnacksGiphy
Going to the movies alone.
Going to a movie alone in an empty cinema is a spiritual experience
Going In Blind
Watching a movie ONLY knowing the title, Dodge all previews , dodge all mentions of who is in it.
Depending On Where You Live
Walking instead of driving if it's possible on a lovely day.
Live in US so everything is exceptionally car friendly and always figured a walk was a waste of time. Then moved to a new city without a car and decided to spend a few weeks walking to learn the new spots and would just cab when I had to. I learned the city more intimately, lost weight, felt better about leaving my safety net, and was happy especially with weather. Just never understood how great a walk could be and now walk as far as time allows to get places. Ita great.
Again, Don't Knock Until You Try It
Showering in the dark, it's pretty therapeutic and safe if you're not an idiot
Cinnamon applesauce on pancakes or waffles instead of syrup.
It's amazing! Kinda like an apple pie.
Here's A Two-For-One
Brush your teeth in the shower.
Don't have to be tidy, just brush like a maniac. Then just spit wherever! Rinse with mouthwash too. It's liberating in the same way as taking your pants off your ankles when you're on the toilet.
Seems Like You Can Have A Lot Of Fun In The Shower...
Shower beer. Wash a little, drink a little, rinse and repeat. Improved my quality of life.
The contrast of the cold beer and the warm water running over you is amazing.
Don't Worry. Let Them Struggle.
Letting your kids figure out problems on their own every now and then
I once saw a dad who let his baby struggle to reach for a toy that was just out of her reach. She spent about 15 solid minutes wiggling her way to that toy.
I almost amazed because most parents never let their children think or solve anything on their own. They just hand them what they need. Or stand them up the second they fall over. Or jump in the minute an argument breaks out. But the kids never learn to do anything on their own
It's Long Form Storytelling!Giphy
I had a friend at university who would constantly suggest playing, and I always brushed him off. Spending my weekends pretending to be an elf was not my jam, thank you very much.
Then I tried it, and it turns out it's awesome. Who would have thought that drinking beers, eating cheese and killing fake goblins with maths could be so much fun?
When in doubt.... be a Karen! LOL
We've all seen them and at times we may have been one A KAREN! You know who that is.... a difficult person, that's describing it politely. Karen's make scenes and do all that is necessary to get anything and everything their way. Working in any form of a service job, Karens are your worst nightmare.
Redditor u/externalodyssey wanted to hear from everybody about their Karen encounters by asking.... Managers of Reddit - what is a Karen experience like ? What was you worst experience ?
