We’ve all seen scammy emails and texts, and know to steer clear of them. But sending money to a distant price so he can take back his throne is very different from scams we all have occasionally given into.
So, what do people think about the biggest scams that most of us refuse to admit? Here’s what we found.
There is not a person in the world who can understand why health insurance does not cover dental health or your eyes.
It’s almost as if you can go without seeing…and everyone knows teeth aren’t the most important bones in the body. Several users complain about insurance companies referring to dental procedures as cosmetic, elective, or luxury procedures.
This is why they tell you to floss…before your smiling days run out.
Many people take a philosophical but pretty sad approach to work; your best years are spent making enough money for retirement only for old age to obscure the fruits of your labor.
For most people, though, working wouldn’t be too hard if they could balance it out. Of course, you could also move to Germany, which is famous for its work culture!
Ever subscribed to something, only to realize canceling the subscription is harder? Many users seem to think so too, and gym memberships bear the brunt of these allegations!
From in-person cancellations, mail-in cancellations, and outright refusals to cancel the membership, people are voicing out their grievances against gyms.
There’s another solution; if everyone shows up even twice each week, the gym would have to accept cancellations to make more room! Or like one person, just change the payment details to a used gift card.
Other notable mentions include satellite TV, radio, and for some reason…the Wall Street Journal.
The Wedding Industry
Boy, are people salty over this! You would be, too if you had to spend almost twenty grand to make a day special.
Many people recommend a small, private affair followed by a dinner celebration to combat the industry leeching out their savings.
It’s not uncommon for people to set aside a funeral fund, morbid as it is.
Someone believes they should…shoot you through a canon, as a last hurrah to make up for the cost. The old king is dead, long live the internet!
Most people believe that hustling and grinding are neither worth it nor producing good people. Some want to spend time with their family once they’re done making enough to live comfortably.
Others think hustlers never develop their ideas and mostly push for pyramid schemes. The only pyramids we want to think of are in Egypt if we can afford the trip!
The point is money isn’t everything, and all podcasts sound the same.
How come people are still buying mined diamonds in this age when you can get better, cheaper ones made in the lab?
Plus, if not the price, the science is pretty cool, and moissanite can gleam brighter!
These items cost so much that you might as well sign your firstborn over to the stores. Mats, diaper bags, cots, toys, bottles, etc all cost so much you’re better off buying miniature versions.
Just never anything with the word “baby” in it.
Who hasn’t been scammed with one of those? You try the claw machine, fail to grab the plushie, and all your change is gone before you know it.
Can’t stand the pain of grabbing something only to drop it.
Buying A Star
We love how the internet will always hit you with some facts. No one but the International Astronomical Union can name stars, and all else is a sham.
It’s like the astronomical equivalent of an NFT.
