They’re everywhere.

In fact, an idiot is writing this very article.

Knowing this, a Reddit user by the name of Migz968 taken the the self.AskReddit section of the site to ask his/her fellow Internet users: “At what moment did you realize you were dating an idiot?”

Naturally, since being a spanner is a common human trait, the thread went absolutely boonta, with some answers that were as glorious as they were astounding:

(In my defense, this was back in 2004) I found it charming and endearing that he did funny voices, made funny idiosyncratic jokes, and occasionally called me “m’lady”.

Then I saw Anchorman. Oh my god he literally was doing a 24/7 Ron Burgundy impression, eclipsing his entire personality. I’m not sure I ever really met him. – quiteatoughlass

I dated a guy for about a month until I found out that he didn’t realize that women’s breasts made actual milk to feed their babies. He thought “breast feeding” was just a way to hold a baby while giving it a bottle. 

I told him he was an idiot and he said, with a disgusted sneer, “I didn’t know that because I have never known any woman, who had or would, breast feed their child.” 

I told him that I had breast fed my son and he called me a child molester. – Star90s

Watching a wildlife documentary and my girlfriend asked me if bears laid eggs. – BobSleigh88

We were watching Django, and during the winter training montage there is a moment where the camera pans over a herd of reindeer. At that moment my ex said something about how she thought it was weird that they would include reindeer in the movie because it kind of breaks the immersion. I was confused and asked what she meant by that. She went on to explain to me how reindeer weren’t real animals and just make believe like characters in a fairy tale (aka Rudolph & the rest of Santas reindeer)

I had been dating this girl for a few months and it was Christmas time. We weren’t super serious but it was serious enough that I was buying her Christmas presents. I found something for her that was perfect and it had a connection to some funny event involving her and my cat. So I made the present from the cat. I thought I was being cute and she would make the connection. Instead, she got pissed that my cat got her a present and I didn’t. I thought she was joking. To make matters worse we were at her parents’ place and they backed her up. It was extremely awkward and I realized it wasn’t going to work out.dopkick

She tried to argue that we could get to the moon easier if we just built a spaceship that could go underwater, and flew it through the ocean to the moon during the day time rather than straight up. Blindjakefromstate

When she “surprised” me by inviting her mother on our 16 day Hawaiian cruise.gawdybaubles

That said, you deserved it, gawdybaubles. Ain’t nobody under the age of 50 got time for a cruise.
