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 into it. - aqua84

3 Summer isn't very long

True it may now june in 6 days, and you think of it september is 3 months away from june, and sometimes it could feel like, it june 21 or the last day of school, then it flies by and it already september and kids are back in school, one year felt like it was 2 weeks for summer it went by too fast

I feel like these years are getting faster, I still remember stuff on the day of new years of eve before 2017. - Luckys

Yeah it goes by so fast, today june 17, 2019, before you know it it probably be september - trains45

That's good! If it's long, then it means more time to suffer the heat! - Misfire

4 Wasps

The wasps were so bad last summer, I almost got stung once - trains45

I am real scared of wasp I run away as fast as I can, I know I should probably just stay still and it is weird when a people see a person (me) sprinting across the grass when a wasp is chasing me and I literally knocked someone down to get away from a wasp that was chasing me

I frockin hate wasps. - AlphaQ

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.

5 Sunburn

I'm black...sooo I can't say this has happened

Even on cloudy days with an inch thick layer of sunscreen walking for 5 minutes leads to sunburn and heatstroke consequently resulting in weeks of constant pain and humiliation as people tell you to wear sunscreen and then they don’t believe you when you show them how you put on an inch thick layer of factor 50.

I used to get sunburnt a lot but then I decided to not use sunblock. - AlphaQ

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?

7 Nothing to do

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. - Luckys

My summer is 99% stuck at home

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

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... - Lina1028

8 Humidity

My family hogs all the air conditioning >:(

It's basically heat that makes you moist and sweaty. - AlphaQ

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.

The Newcomers

Summer 2013 and 2016 and june and july 2018 and the last 2 week of june 2019 we had rain non stop, it sucked, but we still got the sunny days too, and a few in the last 2 weeks in june 2019, including today on june 26 2019 but it may rain later - trains45

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'm terrified of hurricanes - Celestius

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. - Absolite

18 Summer Clothes

I hate shorts that aren't jean shorts/ - Luckys

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

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. - LemonComputer

23 Crowded Public Pools

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. - Luckys

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 - MinecraftHater

24 Horrid smells
25 Ice Cream Truck Song

The song got annoying after while - trains45

Play NWA instead haha. It'll Ben much better I promise. I'm not even sarcastic right now. - AlphaQ

I agree it gets annoying when someone complains if it rains too much for like days - trains45

Just take one day where it's twenty degrees and cloudy. It's quite comfortable, but everyone's all like "Where's the summer gone? " and "Oh, isn't the weather horrible today? ". Please. In some places in colder countries, temperatures like that are the warmest they get and they live with it. - Entranced98

Consider yourselves fortunate. Summer camp can lead to suicide from boredom (just like algebra class).

This seems to happen every summer, sometimes I stuck inside all day because of asthma

I don't think that make sence

44 Basketball season is over

I miss it sooo much!

45 The Hype Makes Summer Seem Less Fun
46 School's Out

I like this, but the most annoying part is that my Asian parents keep forcing me to study for THE NEXT SCHOOL YEAR. They think that anything that's not studying is a "complete waste of my time and life"

Mom: why you on YouTube? Go review for next year
Me: But mom it's summer! I worked so hard! I deserve a break!
Mom: You always on YouTube! That waste your time, waste your life. Review is better. Make you smarter.

I wish that my Asian parents can cut off some slack here... :(

That is a good thing. Why is it even on the list? Better yet, why are there duplicates of it on the list? - 3DG20

I love school so much I miss my freinds so bad I hate it that schools out I want it back its not fair I love work so much and I have to go to babysitter her house very nice but I get in trouble sometimes I love school nothing better than school I hate bullies though

Get this off the list now!
