Top 10 Worst Things About Summer

The Top Ten
1 Mosquitoes Spanish for "small fly," mosquitoes are insects that have been known to cause various diseases. A sample of diseases caused by mosquitoes: malaria, yellow fever, Chikungunya, West Nile virus, dengue fever, filariasis, Zika virus.

I actually enjoy summer, but mosquitoes are definitely the most annoying thing sbout summer. Every time I go out at night in the summer, I get bit by at least 10 mosquitoes if I don't have some sort of protection.

Yes, this one of the worst things about summer because at my Cottage in the Summertime. They fly around me, leave itchy bites on me that could make me scratch the itchy bites for a very long time and they make that irritating buzz! They are the most irritating insects in the summertime!

I hate them because they love summer and it's terrible they can cause diseases. They should die due to the blood sucking abilities. Can't they leave us alone? We can't go back to school getting bug bites everywhere.

Mosquitoes are common in the Philippines. I get bitten a lot by mosquitoes and used to be very afraid of them as a kid. They could get very annoying but I gradually got used to it.

2 Extreme heat

I live in Wisconsin, and in the summer I usually get days in the low-80's to the mid-90's. Sometimes I get days in the high 70's, while other times there are a few days in the high 90's. This year, my city actually had a 100-degree day.

I live in Hong Kong, and I can tell you that it's really hot in the summer, and not only that, but it's also so muggy that it feels even hotter than it already is.

Even in London the heat is unbearable in summer! We don't have mosquitoes or venomous spiders, thankfully, but even the harmless flies and wasps are annoying enough!
Why do people go places that are even hotter?! It's just plain stupid! Why would you get away from the London heat by going somewhere like Texas or India?! If you want to go somewhere like that, go in the winter (assuming you're both in the same hemisphere). But the cold is the lesser of two evils, so it's logically better to go somewhere cooler!

I'd rather be freezing cold than burning hot. At least if it's cold outside, you can put on layers of clothing and stay under blankets, but if it's hot outside, you're body is drenched in sweat and you feel terrible.

3 Sunburn

I usually get tan in the summer and have tan lines for months, but last month I got a bad sunburn on my legs and after a few weeks, I was left with peeling skin everywhere.

I've had too many sunburns to even count. People think I'm weird for applying SPF 100 sunscreen and bringing an umbrella outside, but I can't help the fact that I usually burn and am very pale.

I get sunburned real easily even though I have sunscreen and a hat. In 2016 I actually got a bad sunburn ON A CLOUDY DAY! How is that even possible?

I don't even remember the last time I got a sunburn...
Also, my skin usually gets super tan and I have these tan lines for months.

4 It isn't very long

Oh no! We have year-round summers in South India. From 15th May to 10th June, the average maximum temperature is 40┬░Celsius. What's more? High humidity. In January, the average maximum temperature is 29┬░Celsius and average minimums are 20 degrees Celsius. During peak summer, the minimum temperature can go as high as 30┬░Celsius. But still we have only the heat problem and During November to February me and my friends stay and play outside most of the time.

Sniff... It 3 days here until it over and it's getting colder, why mummy why? Laugh out loud I hate all things like weather, but I love thunder and sun! The BBQs the paddling pools, the things, but sun cream is just CRAP!

Summer all year long? No snow, no ice, warm weather all the time, we on't have to close our pool, we can cook out more often,...I can live with that! It's still Christmas, in the places where it doesn't snow in December.

This should be 1st. When it's hot you swim or hangout at the movies or something. When summer ends it school and homework and stayin up late and gettin up early.

5 Wasps

These insects are my worst nightmare, and in my city they usually start coming in mid-August and don't disappear until the beginning of October.

I am scared because I have no idea if I am allergic a lot. I'm just terrified. I just wanted to say that. If you are allergic, good luck in summer. Well, they won't say this is good quality enough yet, so wait, no, wait! Okay, and... Good.

Here in UK they are so small and their stings don't even hurt but still so scary. Can't help but run like a little girl if one is following me.

Worst animal ever, even worse than mosquitoes. Now, I'm listening to "know your enemy" by Green Day, and it make me think about those d***.

6 Humidity

I hate humidity as an asthma sufferer, The humidity makes it unbearable to breathe sometimes, especially in rammed places like buses, when all the windows are shut it is awful, The humidity gets to your lungs and causes an annoying repetitive ticklish cough. I hate that.

Really Hate humidity, people with asthma struggle to breathe, there is no air around, gnats and insects are everywhere, also you get frizzy hair and sticky skin. Yuck.

My family goes to Florida for summer vacation every year and it's very humid. I have curly hair, and it's always frizzy when we go to FL

The humidity is so bad that I have straight silky hair and it makes my hair frizzy. Sigh

7 Sweaty people

Can't tolerate the sultry, sweaty days of summer.

Or when you're sweaty. I hate sweating a lot!

What's more worse?!

8 Nothing to do

First 2 weeks: It's summer!? HELL YEAH! Let's go eat all kinds of ice cream and watch movies all day!

Pretty much after that: It's summer? Ugh...I'm desperate to do something just take me to school already...

That awkward moment when one month is gone and you realize... I just spent half the summer doing nothing!

My typical summer vacations (when I'm not flying):

1%-day trip to NJ shore, NYC, etc...
4%-go out to eat/party
6%-shopping, errands, etc
90%-stay home and play on the computer all day

I watch T.V. because Summer and Fall are when the good T.V. comes. I go on vacations, so I have stuff to do.

9 Back to school commercials

Back to school commercials are stupid, annoying, and make me so angry that I want to destroy my phone or the TV.

It's the most HORRIBLE time of the year!

These ads start in mid-to-late July and end in late August or early September. They're super annoying.

Yeah when I go to the store like to use target gift card from Christmas and I see schools supplies um like why are school supplies here so early they should be showing summer things like pool noodles floats beach balls bubbles pool toys

One summer they came up in the middle of July it was way too early

10 Hurricane season

At least I live in a state where I don't get hurricanes. I feel bad for the people on the coast who have to deal with these stupid storms.

How can mosquitoes be above this? I'm from Washington, a place where hurricanes can't happen and even I know how horrible they are.

I live in Florida. Granted, we've had good luck with hurricanes for the last few years, but it seems that luck will change soon with Irma.

Really? Hurricanes come during the summer?

The Contenders
11 Summer homework

I'm in honors English and over the summer, we had to watch a TED talk, read a book, and write an essay. It was TORTURE!

Why would I want to work on algebra or write an essay when I'm supposed to be enjoying my vacation?

My school always gives us a "summer math paket" to do over the summer and they also make us read a REALLY boring book and write a book review on it. I'm also gonna have to be tutored this summer becuase I have a learning disabillity

Teacher's can take break all day when we are just gonna do homework... really?

12 Ice cream melts quickly

Then shove the ice cream in your mouth and get brain freeze.

That's why I eat ice cream during the winter instead.

13 Bugs

The worst bug to ever exist, I wish we got rid of all flies, and the world would be a better place. The flies also deserve a painful death not just by a swatter. Flies are evil.

I get so annoyed whenever bugs randomly come in my house out of nowhere and fly near my food.

The only thing flies are for is for spiders to kill and frogs to eat.

14 All your friends are gone

Every time I make a new friend in the beginning of the school year, they always move away.

15 More creepy perverts

There will always be that one guy staring at your butt if you are wearing shorts or a swimsuit.

16 Summer school

Who wants to go to school in summers?! Even my school's first week is in summer. I usually get bored.

17 Summer clothes

I hate summer clothes, it's like people think Hey summers here! then you see all overweight disgusting men with there tops off and there huge bellies and moobs on display. Nobody dresses modest in the summer it's like everyone just strips off. Some girls walk around in just a pair of shorts & bikini top in City centers among business people, office workers, shoppers, old people etc.. It's like put it away, save that for the beach!

Personally, I don't like seeing people (including myself) dress up in summer clothes at all, regardless of age, weight, or anything like that.

I hate the summer dress code, nobody wears enough clothes & modesty goes out the window.

You can't wear hoodies or pumpkin masks or chains either. But it's alright.

18 Not enough rain

The more rainy or cloudy days, the better. Unfortunately, the burning sun is usually out during the day during the summer, although I was lucky enough to see rain in July a few times.

19 Allergies flare up

My skin is so pale to the point where I'm basically allergic to the sun. I've accepted the fact that I'm a vampire.

For me, my seasonal allergies are horrible in the spring, but aren't as bad in the summer.

I thought these yellow stuff appears during spring time!

Because I have hay fever, summer is unpleasant for me.

20 Too much rain

You know something's wrong with the weather in where you live when you can't go a SINGLE day in July without rain!

I hate it when it rains because I just want to go outside and have fun, and every time I plan on going swimming, it always rains. :/

21 Crowded public pools

All I see at public pools are 2-7 year olds who slide on waterslides for children from ages 8 and up. The rules are even in the public pool. BUT people are "too lazy" to read them

I go to the pool a lot, but I kind pf hate it because I see people from my school and the popular girls and boys, which is just awkward.

22 Getting left out of stuff

My cousins always goes out nearly every week during the summer but my sister and I are always stuck at home with nothing to do. Sometimes they do fun stuff that I could've been doing! They rarely invite us but when they do my mom usually says no so as a result I get bored way too easily during the summer :(

23 Sun tans

I'm already dark-skinned so I don't need a Tan.

24 Worsened anxiety

My anxiety is worse in the spring and summer months than it is in the fall and winter months.

25 It's boring

I will admit that it can be, but I wouldn't want it any other way if it means I don't have to go to school.

It can be boring sometimes, I got bored in the summer a few times
