People always say you need to be empathic and help others whenever you can. This especially counts when the person you need to help is a close friend or a relative. Still, not all opportunities you get to help others are worth the effort, because people can be very ungrateful. If you haven’t experienced the thing we are trying to describe, it is a matter of time that you do. There is no telling just how many times people have been disappointed by their effort to help others. Similar experience has been shared by many Redditors, and some of their best posts are shared below. You can read the whole thread on Reddit.
1. The futon
Here is how one person decided to take advantage of the kindness of another, and we guess this is something unacceptable. Having decided to never give something for free again, this person will now know better.
2. The friend
There are moments when we think about the things people would do behind their best friend’s back. This post gives s a lot of food for thought, and we cannot believe the things this woman did.
3. The toddler clothes
It seems that some people would never appreciate the things others would do for them, but here is another story. It goes way beyond ungratefulness, and we are sorry for this person’s bad experience.
4. The teacher
When you lend out a helping hand to someone, they sometimes try to bite it instead of appreciating it. In this case, one person continued to ask for easy money once they got the first round.
5. The customer
Imagine how annoying and pushy some people can be. It seems they have no idea of the problems they might cause, and they also have no idea they bother the people they constantly want something from.
6. The game
Well, there you have it: a person who was willing to literally sell out a friendship for some cheap game. It seems that these things sometimes happen for a reason. The user who posted this is better off without such people.
7. The sister
Sometimes, the closest people you have in your life can act in a manner that is completely inappropriate. As you can see, this person made the right decision to stop contacting her.
8. The parents
We are convinced that people who take advantage of one’s hospitality and then behave in an ungrateful manner are always not worth anyone’s attention. They always mistreat their helpers.
9. The neighbor
Well, this is one absurd story that we think should have never happened, but it apparently did. Such people should never be accepted in any neighbor association for obvious reasons.
10. The volunteer
Now, this is one thing that is more than unacceptable. It appears that people who misuse the opportunities they are given are everywhere around us, and this is a sad fact.
11. The coworker
Imagine the audacity of this person. You would think it would take a special kind of person to do what she did. There is no doubt she was special – nobody who respects others would do such a thing.
12. The puppy
Now, this is the thing we would like to see more of. There is no telling how many animals would love to have a rescuer like the person who did all of this. We consider this a happy ending by definition.
13. The client
Now, this is something that all freelancers could easily relate to, and we think it is rather unfortunate that this is a fact. Some people can doublecross you for a lot less, and working months for people who don’t pay is a huge bummer.
14. The trips
People would never appreciate the effort you have put into making their lives easier. There is no doubt that this person learned a valuable lesson and they will surely never allow such a mistake to happen again.
15. The stoplight
Some people never appreciate the kindness of others and they probably have their won reasons for that, but we would never tolerate behavior like this, because it is disrespectful, to say the least.
16. The truck
Here is how people would never hesitate to use you whenever they can. This is fine as long as they return the favor or repay you in some way. This person surely had an eye-opening experience.
17. The bills
As you have probably guessed, this post represents a lesson for life, and this person will surely remember it for the rest of their days. We know that people sometimes go too far, but this is absurd.
18. The argument
Wow, imagine the things people would do to violate your home and commit things you don’t want to endure. We are sure that these people would never open their door to a stranger ever again.
19. The help
Well, there is nothing that could be said about this, and there are no words to describe it, too. It seems that some people are not only ungrateful, but they try to make you look bad when you want to help them.
20. The rides
Here is yet another example of how people use others. This is not friendship, and it is definitely not a nice way to demonstrate that someone means little to you – just a means of transportation.
21. The causes
Well, this is one of the biggest problems we have with charities of all kinds. There are people who can never get enough, and we know that asking for more than you are willing to give is a huge red flag.
22. The help
Here is yet another person who lost their trust in helping individuals, and for all the right reasons, too. We are convinced that their new approach is much better, and we agree with their reasons.
23. The beggar
This is something common, and we know why this happens. Many beggars don’t actually need groceries. They are part of organized groups that make a living from people’s compassion. That’s awful but it happens.
24. The baby
Imagine having a friend that never thanks you for the things you do for them. We all have such people around us, but we have stopped calling them friends a long time ago. There is no telling just how many people have been in such a situation.
25. The family
There are only a few things worse than taking advantage of a charity or a foundation. This is one such example, and we don’t like people who do such things.
26. The friend
Here is how some people treat those who are willing to lend out a helping hand. There are many ways in which people can avoid getting into such situations, and one is to know better not to offer help.
27. The shifts
People would do absolutely everything they can to convince you to take their shift for a plethora of reasons, but when the time comes for them to return the favor, you get a lot of excuses in return.
28. The couple
Some people are never going to change, but others who never know them well enough only learn that later. This is what happened here, and a friendship was ruined.
29. The class
This is one of the things that people should always do when they realize they had been used. Not doing favors anymore is the way to go.
30. The giver
Well, this is one of the best posts in this thread for obvious reasons. It perfectly sums up the reasons why someone would decide to stop helping others.
31. The website
Sometimes people use you for their own good, but this is actually a favor they do you. When you think about it, such an episode will make you never want to help others and you will surely avoid more of the same this way.
32. The group
We know that people would sometimes go to great lengths to help their friends, but when enough is enough, things need to come to an end.
33. The moment
Sharing, giving, and receiving are the main components of a healthy relationship, and we know that people who act in a manner that never includes giving are not true friends.
34. The gas
We cannot imagine what type of a person it takes to lie to people for such small things. It sounds like they wanted to have cashback for their gas on someone else’s account.
35. The demand
Seeing how someone wanted to take advantage of a person that already helped him makes us furious. He should have thanked him instead of asking for money.
