People Share What They Wish Would Happen If They Right-Clicked Their Friends
The "Right" Click
Anyone familiar with computers knows what happens when you "right click" on the mouse; you get to see all the hidden options for a file. But what if there was a right click in life?
Reddit user Coast_2_Coast asked "What options would come up if you could 'right-click' people?"
Here are the creative replies.
Do I know you?
I'd hope nametags because I don't remember anyone's names
Under "properties", along with age, marital status, etc.
Friends in common, to see where you know them from.
No more arguing at bedtime
"Send to..." would be interesting
That would be amazing for parents. Right-click, Send to, Bed.
Relationships are hard

Asking for a friend
Did you hear something?
Yes. Ignore permanently-until-removed, or ignore-for-preset-duration would be great
Add to Contacts --- if this person has granted you permissions to do so, puts their email address / phone number / home address / etc. into your contact list.
Grant Permissions --- allow this person to access your information; also grant other permissions.
Snapshot --- record the thing this person is currently doing. Does not require permissions; can be used to document bad behavior.
Volume --- raise or lower your perception of this person's speech volume. Useful for that coworker who doesn't know how well their voice carries; or that person you're trying to make conversation with over loud music.
Block --- raises a hazy forcefield barrier between this person and you, preventing physical contact and muffling sound.
Have we met?
'Find related conversation...'
To find prior conversations you've had with or about the person.
It would save me a lot of embarrassment... "Nice to meet you, you must be ." "Nooo, I'm , we've met several times before..." /dies

There's no way this could end badly
What about copy, then paste. Now you have 2 of them. Delete, removes them from your life. Shift + delete removes them from existence. Cut then paste, cut them out of existence and move them someplace new at the exact moment they were cut out. Example, door to door sales person or religious/political knocmer shows up. Cut, walk over to annoying neighbor's house, knock on their door, paste, run.
I need an adult
I don't know to who but I'd imagine it would go to the developer.
Mum & Dad are getting a lot of notifications that they never wanted...

If you could right click yourself that would be amazing, who needs cars when you just right click then "send to: C:Windows/user/(insert your name here)/home"
Racism is an insidious, and unfortunately prevalent, force in all of our daily lives. Maybe we're on the receiving end of it, being treated differently and losing opportunities because of others' preconceived notions.
Or maybe we're on the other side of things. Even those who aren't actively racist or discriminatory still have to process the world through the filters of the things they've been told about people who are different.
