It is disheartening that so many problems plague our society. However, people often turn a blind eye to these problems, refusing to acknowledge them or take action to address them. This only allows the problems to persist and worsen over time.
One such user asked,what are people pretending isn’t a problem? And here are the top picks:
1. Unaffordable Homes
“The fact that housing is becoming disgustingly unaffordable. Real estate has become a cruel joke and only seems to get worse by the minute.” said one.
“The rate it’s going now, home ownership will only belong to an exclusive few, and those few will own most rental homes. I’m serious when I say we are 20-30 years away from nobody owning real estate except the rich. The rest of us will just be renters for life. Our love of unbridled capitalism is going to turn this nation into a caste system,” said another.
2. Using Children for Content
“Until I had a child of my own, I was completely unaware of the giant portion of YouTube that is overrun with family blogs and adults playing with kid’s toys for views. There are so many! It’s so weird.” said one
3. Social Media
“Social media in general, is a huge problem that will only get worse. Whatever dethrones TikTok will be insane.” said one.
“The expectation that you will be available to answer your phone at all times. People now get offended because I couldn’t answer their call,” said one.
5. Mental Health Concerns
“The expectation that you will be available to answer your phone at all times. People now get offended because I couldn’t answer their call,” said another.
“The environment. Like it’s just going to fix itself. It will, after hundreds of years after it kills us off and can repair itself. Joke is on us, I guess,” shared one.
7. The Healthcare System
“The fact that having healthcare tied to employment is a disaster when a pandemic strikes and hundreds thousands of people lose their jobs and their healthcare” shared one.
8. Declining Mannerism
“The disappearance of basic common courtesy, especially towards those in customer facing careers. It’s disgusting,” said one.
“Honestly. It’s going to sound boomerish but it does feel like people have less manners these days. I have been regularly visiting the hospital due to a family member, and rudeness I’ve seen from both patients and family members toward nurses and other staff is appalling. These people are trying to heal you or a loved one. Have some respect” said another.
9. Screen Times
“Kids and screen time. Overall, it’s a whopping negative impact, especially on mental health and social skills,” said one.
“How people are addicted to social media and completely detached from real life. How they use their phones as a way to escape their thoughts and the world around them, and how negatively that is affecting their mental health and overall well-being,” said another.
10. Need for a College Degree
“Needing a college degree in any field while working along side people who have been there for 15+ years who barely or simply didn’t graduate high school at all. If they could learn “on the job” why can’t I?” said one.
“Drinking is a major problem and the covid lockdown created a business model with doordash and other delivery companies making it even easier to get. I say this as an alcoholic in a sober living house.” said another.
12. Rising Costs
“Unrealistic Costs. The increasingly unrealistic costs of living and raising a family, compared to wages and salaries,” said one. “It’s wild to me that I make twice what I did 4 years ago and am struggling more.” said another.
