25 Horrible Experiences That Made These People Swear To Never Do Again

Okay, during about 70 years of an average person's lifespan, no one wants to live a boring life. You have roughly 20 years of repeatedly going to school and then the next 30 years of going to work every day. If you've ever stopped to think about that, you'll see how monotonous life can be if we don't do anything to stir it up. You only live once. That's why people are always seeking new destinations, new experiences, and new people to add more colors to their lives.
Sure, who would decline the invitation to try out a new experience? Like or don't like, the only way to find the answer is to give it a try. And, well, it doesn't always end well. Sometimes people try out new things only to make sure that it'll be the only time they do it, no more. Some experiences are so terrible that they make people swear to never do it again. Scroll down to find out what it is.

I'll starve before I deal with entitled older people who demand the latest technology but refuse to learn how to actually use their new technology and expect the world to bend over backward to satisfy their unrealistic demands. Half of them don't think plugging in their TV is a requirement before calling and screaming that "this darnedest, useless smart tv doesn't even want to come on and I've tried EVERYTHING! My old dumb TV lasted 40 years and never had a problem, now tell your boss, Mr. Netflix, to send me a new TV and give me a refund!
