The world that we have built for ourselves is full of handy gadgets and products that we use to make our lives easier and more comfortable. Pretty cool, isn't it? Yet there is a downside to all this convenience. We have become so reliant on all these things in our day-to-day lives that if they were to be taken away from us, we would struggle to know how to live without them!
This tongue-in-cheek Twitter discussion, initiated by Yowie Wowie, hilariously sums up this situation by asking: “You are a burglar but instead of stealing things you do things that are mildly inconvenient to your victims. What are you stealing?”
From phone chargers to Tupperware, Wifi code stickers and toilet paper, these evil geniuses are determined to find people's weaknesses and exploit them to the maximum!
Scroll down below to see the hilarious thread for yourself, and feel free to come up with your own in the comments!
Yowie Wowie, whose real name is Keifer, is a New York-based Trinidadian who works as a musician. He really didn't expect his tweet to blow up like it did, and has enjoyed reading through the responses. "I was curious to see what other people would come up with," he told Bored Panda. "They were hilarious!"
Due to his love for music, Keifer told us that the item that he most dreads losing is his precious headphones. But what couldn't you live without? According to Bustle, a study was conducted by UK-based loan service 'Lending Stream' where nearly 2,000 British adults were asked to name the things in life that they couldn’t live without.
For men, the majority of them (40 percent) said their TV was the most important thing in their life, while nearly 50 percent of women said it was their toothbrush.
Things like shampoo, moisturizer, hair brushes, shower gel, and conditioner made the top 20 list of things women couldn’t live without, while things like going on a vacation, their sisters, their dads, and sex fell further down the list.
On the flipside, after television, 36.5 percent of men said they couldn’t live without their partners followed by their beds (35.5 percent) and their cars (32.5 percent).
The study also found that the average person would be willing to shell out more than £4,000 (about $6,250) so they wouldn’t have to live a year without their favorite thing. Who could go a whole year without brushing their teeth?
Chris deBoer, CEO of Lending Stream which carried out the study said: "This is a refreshing snapshot into the attitudes of people and how they choose to spend their money.
"Far from being extravagant with money, it is the simple things in life that they can't live without."
