45 People Who Don’t Need To Be Told Twice

It is important to take heed of the warning signs in life. Sure, there are people who like to live to the beat of their own drum, take life in their stride, and just generally be a renegade badass.

And sure, while it can feel quite cool and liberating to be a rebel, there are some warning signs that are just there for your own good. For instance, there's nothing cool about having a burning backside, and nor is there anything cool about being killed by deer falling from the sky (all will be explained later). So, without further ado, here are 15+ people who don't need to be told twice!

"Warning sign of the century award goes to..."

Reddit | pdmcmahon

I feel that this warning label could just be slapped across life in general! Wow, that joke was actually a lot more depressing than intended...

"Don't say we didn't warn you."

Reddit | bobcats2019

In my experience, all geese are aggressive! Have you ever met a goose in your life that wasn't honking and trying to bite you? Didn't think so!

"Warning, slutty trains approaching."


Penrith has a real problem with people being fellated by passing trains. It's a weird place with even weirder customs.

They're Not Wrong

Reddit | deepanshuv23

Wait, so people are getting fellated by vacuums as well now? First trains and now this, what is the world coming to?

Heed The Warning

Reddit | odyne9

Never come in between a person and their fabric scissors. I mean, if they're insane enough to need fabric scissors, then they're capable of anything.

"My manager went out on his boat this weekend."

Reddit | LinkedPioneer

I wonder how many times that he heard this today before he had to resort to putting this sign up.

Shut The Door

Reddit | hacktvist

I know that there is a funny and important message right there, but it is telling that all I can focus on the Magners and Doritos sour cream and chive dip. That's the making of a great night in right there.

"But no warnings about leopards...?"

Reddit | LuckyGreenLizard

Imagine if the cause of your death was being crushed by a falling deer. You really wouldn't be able to look anyone in the eye in the afterlife due to the embarrassment.

"My tattoo guy said 'that's not a tattoo you copy, it's a tattoo you earn'."

Reddit | timmy5toes

Now that is a pretty cool tattoo! I can't help but hear Eric Idle singing the theme tune to the sitcom "One Foot In The Grave" when I look at it though.

Mistakes Were Made

Reddit | Slothkitty

I like to think that this cat has realized its mistake and will never do this again; but, if I know cats, then I know that it will be five minutes before this cat gets itself back into this same situation.

"A Kid in Sitting in Front of Me on my Flight was Sending a Nice Message to his Sister."

Reddit | definitelywasntme

Can you imagine if you accidentally sent this message to the wrong seat? Just some little old man getting this out of nowhere.

Do you Fear Death?

Reddit | senorchachang

Regardless of whether I believed in rebirth or not, I wouldn't fancy dying by being mauled to pieces by a tiger. I feel like that would sting a bit.

Get Out Of The Sun

Reddit | robertino76

I only need to be in the sun for 5 seconds before my pale-as-hell skin goes to this color. Thank God for factor 50+ sunscreen!

"Warning: This zipper may harm your penis."


The person who made these jeans clearly never got over that one scene in There's Something About Mary. Does anyone else get that reference?

"4 days without a cigarette and a co-worker told me to 'come back in a year' before I'm proud about it. Mark your calendars."

Reddit | SaltMineForeman

It's important to have an appropriate source of inspiration to keep you going when you're trying to quit smoking, and that source of inspiration can also be to do it out of spite! Whatever gets you through!

"Listen up kids!"

Reddit | stndFlower

Jesus, I wonder what the other 145 STDs are out there in the wild. Also, why did they have to ruin Pokemon? Just say "Don't get these STDs etc..." I don't think the inclusion of a Pokemon theme is going to help.

"Our 6 year old 'ran away' yesterday so we told him we love him and to come back if he needs anything. He came back and took the cat."

Reddit | NuggLife_

This a pretty clear indication of who your kid values most in the house. Also, I love how the cat is just looking befuddled by the whole situation.

"Went through the taco bell drive-thru with a friend. When asked if we wanted sauce, I said: 'As much as you're allowed to give.' May have made a mistake."

Reddit | ThreadedPommel

Looks like they're going to be having Diablo sauce on absolutely everything for the time being!

"Bible Store In Kansas Really Didn't Understand The Meaning Of This Quote."

Reddit | welltechnically7

I really don't think that this is going to help get the religious folks in; however, it is certainly an interesting business model for a bible store to go after the atheist market, very novel indeed!

"Italian warning labels got no chill."

Reddit | RedN0va

I think that the picture does a lot of the translating work for you if you're struggling. They really pumped the gas on this warning label, didn't they?

"My state has a town that makes 50% of its revenue from a speed trap. Google made the mistake of visiting it."

Reddit | TwistedMexi

Oh Google, there'll be no avoiding paying this... not that I am in any way suggesting that Google avoids paying anything else.

"The toilet stopped flushing. He felt obligated to warn the innocent."

Reddit | seech1031

I'm going to go out on a limb here and assume that the person who left this note is no longer the "favorite son" for the foreseeable future.

Sobriety Proven

Reddit | SharkinaShark

Although, if he's a good enough juggler to do it drunk, then I'd still give him a round of applause.

"My cat is able to somehow open up the cabinets. He finally got into his stash of catnip. Lesson learned."

Reddit | TongueBandit69

I mean, the lesson is probably to keep the nip in a safe, because that cat is seeing sound now and has zero regrets.

"My friend made a small mistake on his German exam."

Reddit | thesnooka

I mean, come on! That is just asking for trouble! I can imagine this has lead to a lot of embarrassing trips to buy carrots in the past.

"I have a second job at a flower shop. They made the mistake of letting me create the sign today."

Reddit | childoftheatom

You shouldn't need telling twice to show your mother how much she means to you! Get out there and buy some "Thanks for wiping my butt" flowers today!

A Mistake Only Made Once...

Reddit | love2go

If you want your teeth to shine and to lose a lot of feeling in your gums and mouth then this is the toothpaste for you!

"Lesson learned: Don't ask IT guys for help."

Reddit | TheMongolGod

I mean... I find this hilarious, but then again I also have the sense of humor of a 50-year-old Dad.

"I think my wife has finally learned her lesson!"


The first rule of any tech problem is to turn it off and turn it back on again.

Plant Thieves Are The Pettiest Of Thieves

Reddit | bobekyrant

How cheap do you have to be to go to the trouble of digging up a neighbors' garden rather than buying your own or taking the time to grow your own from seedlings?

At Least They're Patrolling?

Reddit | [deleted]

This is a well-meaning warning, but something about the silly font makes it feel a bit insulting.

"I said, 'How tall are you?' He handed me this..."

Reddit | NewtonJesse

I can only imagine how annoying it must get to constantly be told something obvious about yourself.

"If only all warnings were this honest."

Reddit | nerblesporkchop

Natural selection is a harsh mistress. One other service employee shared this story:

"I work fast food, and the other day we had a lady come up and complain that she burned her finger on her grilled cheese because it was hot. None of us knew how to break the news to her that a grilled cheese is supposed to be hot."

Sometimes, A Second Note Is Actually Required

Reddit | yoyo5261

Apparently, this is a common problem at truck stops. Now, I understand that sometimes you've got to go and there isn't a safe place to stop for a while, but if you're going to piss in a bottle, then it's your job to dispose of it properly.

"So my grade 5 son had his “the birds and the bees” lesson at school today. Needless to say he wasn’t impressed."

Reddit | grd601

That third question is 1000% a mood.

"My sister learned a valuable lesson this Christmas: If you let your older brother take an ugly picture of you, you will get it on a custom color-changing mug as a gag gift."

Reddit | Alomba87

Never trust a sibling with an unflattering pic.

"Parenting lesson for today: life’s not fair."

Reddit | Bbiron01

Uno is the game that teaches younger kids how to lose spectacularly. And once they've come to terms with that, it's time for parents to introduce them to Monopoly.

Jerk driver got what they deserved.

Reddit | Tallie1379

Why do people feel the need to destroy snowmen?

This person learned their lesson when it turned out that the homeowners used a large stump as a base for the snow sculpture.

"My 10 year old cousin asked for a riding crop for her horseback riding lessons, my aunt tried to deliver."

Reddit | Wanderlust13

I mean... it would probably do the job and the 10-year-old would never realize.

"Goose is yelling to his friend about what bulls**t it is to have to move."

Reddit | shittybipolarpanda

There's nothing that cats love more than being moved out of their comfort zone. They're really professional about it.

"Never forget the keys inside an armoured truck - this wise man has learnt his lesson now."

Reddit | MS0410

This is definitely a situation where spare keys in a safe location are a must!

"Someone in my office learned a very harsh lesson."

Reddit | TheUnbeliever

They must have eaten something spectacularly unusual to have to resort to using anti-bacterial wipes to clean themselves!

"Kool aid man strikes again."

Reddit | Unknownraptor86

If we've told that guy once, we've told him a million times. It is not okay to burst through people's walls out of nowhere, that's how you can end up on a register.

Last year's holiday party must have been a disaster.

Reddit | ChaosLexifer

What did Murphy do to the appetizers that required being locked in a room away from the guests this time around?

Prison Break

Reddit | TheUnbeliever

My immediate response is to think that this cam is terribly evil. However, I also can't help but think that this is the kind of thing that I would do as a joke when I was a kid!
