30 Times Life In The City Got A Little Too Depressing Shared In The “Urban Hell” Online Group

Published 3 years ago

Living in the city comes with its own set of problems, such as traffic, air pollution, and overcrowding. But that’s the price you have to pay for the convenience of having easy access to all of your favorite bars, museums, and art galleries. However, on certain days city life can become a little too much to handle – and there’s no online group out there that manages to capture this feeling better than the r/UrbanHell subreddit.

The subreddit’s 620k+ members regularly shares pictures of what makes city life absolutely miserable, and I’m pretty sure you’ll start looking for a nice cottage outside of town as soon as you’re finished reading this article. Check out some depressing examples of “urban hell” shared in this subreddit in the gallery below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
