15 people described the dumbest argument they ever had and reading them might just obliterate your faith in humanity

Even the chillest people get into an argument with a loved one once in a while, and honestly, nobody is at their best when they’re caught in the throes of a fight. Tempers flare, voices are raised, and nobody really wins. But at least it’s usually about something important, like a relationship or a behavioral issue or politics or something like that. That’s usually, sometimes our most intense fights are over the dumbest stuff. Some people on Ask Reddit revealed the most ridiculous thing they ever fought about.

1. ToyVaren just couldn’t compete with that level of “logic.”

Map had a typo on it spelling Australia as “Austrailia.” Had an argument about correct spelling when “its right there on the map.”

2. im_the_dm and the other person were both right (and left).

When I was six my friend and I stood facing each other, arguing about which hand was your left, and which was your right. It took us about five minutes to realize that, when standing opposite someone, your left side is their right.

3. ruthwikns got the argument out of the way…just in case.

My wife and I got into a shouting match as to whose friend’s wedding we would attend IF they scheduled them for the same weekend. Neither was even engaged yet.

4. Pound for pound, ReonChadwick wins.

I had an ex argue with me “over which would weigh more, a pound of bricks or a pound of feathers.” We went back and forth forever while I tried to explain it to her. It did not help when her mother chimed in with “what about a pound of wet feathers?!” The apple does not fall far from the tree.

5. Well, it would be a tie, right, GooberPinnochio?

If a tiger shark and a tiger were to meet in approximately 3-4 feet of water (with it getting shallower in one direction and deeper in the opposite) who would win? This argument has been going on for over a decade and I still can’t believe he honestly still thinks his opinion is correct.

6. username2256 is all alone on this one.

I got into an argument with my wife about what Kevin McAllister’s mom does for a living. It lasted at least 30 mins and months later we realized we should’ve just googled it. We’ve stopped drinking like that since then.

7. Nobody tell Brokecollegegrrrl about leave-in conditioner.

My best friend and I got in an argument in 7th grade about how to use  shampoo and conditioner. I said shampoo at the roots first, conditioner on the ends after. She said both all over. We got so mad we didn’t speak for a day, which was a big deal considering we’d call each other probably 4 or 5 times between school ending and whenever we went to bed.

We still joke about it almost 11 years later

8. Are you reading this on your phone? Then Squirrella was right.

A boyfriend and I on a roadtrip to Chicago were arguing about whether or not phones are important. I was on the pro-phone side of the argument. You know…because they literally save people’s lives every day?

9. The subject of Arc6180 was the subjective nature of objectification.

I am a guy. I got into a debate with my (female) friend about whether male or female bodies were more attractive.

10. Airtight argument, way2629.

Girl tried to argue with me that a turkey had four legs. I ask her to google it. She googled “turkey with four legs”…

11. Pretty cool, thinksideways.

I had an ex try to argue with me that air conditioning didn’t make the air colder, it just conditioned the air.

12. ToyVaren, you cad!

Ex-wife said she had a dream about me cheating on her with another woman. One of our worst arguments ever was whether I should apologize about it or not.

13. You’re all wrong, Deversal. It’s eighty…plus one.

Back in like third grade or something I had an argument with a girl about which number was the highest. I said one hundred and she said eighty. Imagine the shock on my face when my other classmate told me it was eighty.

14. Mr_L1berty is right, because they speak Portuguese, which is what they speak in Europe.

had to convince a guy that Brazil was not in Africa

15. Right or wrong, mopeywhiteguy, we can all agree that Shrek 2 is definitely a movie that exists.

A few weeks ago I was at a party and my ex was there. We avoided each other all evening but at one point she said that the fairy godmother in shriek 2 sang “I will survive” and I couldn’t stand that so I corrected her and said it was “holding out for a hero”. We then proceeded to argue about it for what could’ve been either 2 minutes or 2 hours, I can’t remember. Anyway, I was right
