Top 10 Worst Things About Summer


The Top Ten

1 Extreme heat

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 hate the summer, Especially working in the summer. It is horrible to work when you are doing a physical job and you get sweaty & dirty it's just disgusting, then your clothes stick to you and you have no choice but to keep your clothes on & continue working because you need your clothes to protect you from things in the work place.

Where I live, it can get up to 25 celcius in summer. In summer, I just travel to the other hemisphere where it is winter. Heat is disgusting and summer should be destroyed.

Ugh! I can feel my breasts getting sweaty! It's so uncomfortable! - Stazemar000

2 Mosquitoes Mosquitoes Spanish for "small fly," mosquitoes are flies 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 .

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!

Mosquitos make me wish it was winter so they would all DIE!

I'll be relaxing, minding my own business around the campfire, and suddenly I feel some itching on my shoulder. I look over and what do I see? A bunch o mosquitoes trying to suck my veins dry!

That looks gross!

3 Summer isn't very long

I so agree here. Summer is my favorite season. I adore heat and try to visit many countries in summer. Too bad this lovely season is so short - Irina2932

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!

Yeah and the heat makes me want to shove a cooling system down cyborgs throat no wonder I spend my summers in Canada and winters in utah

Time to enjoy a nice long bre-

Next thing you know...

Get up kids! It’s time for school! - 3DG20

4 Wasps

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.

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

7 Nothing to do

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

I've watched T.V. for literally 2 months straight now

My summer is 99% stuck at home

8 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.

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

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

9 Summer homework

It's the stupidest thing ever! We should be getting a break for all that stuff and it's just hanging over your head all summer :( - Lissie19999

My school gave out math workbooks but eventually stopped because they all ended up in the trash

Every time this happens it either ends up in my last day of school bonfire or fed to some goats - Captaincrunch2015

This is exactly what summer reading is

Temmie flakes!

12 Allergies flare up

I thought these yellow stuff appears during spring time!

I'm allergic to sensitive people who snitch on me. - AlphaQ

I got an allergy shot in summer 2016 due to my extreme sunburns :(

13 Hurricane season

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

14 It's Boring After a While

18 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. - LemonComputer

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

Actually, the good thing about summer clothes, is that all you have to do is put on shorts and a T-shirt, and you're ready to go outside. Winter clothes? Well, you have to put this on, and that on, and this other thing on, etc., etc. - giddyjoker

19 Getting Left Out Of Stuff

U don't have a life so it doesn't mater

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 :(

20 Over-air-conditioned buildings

School sucks lol - AlphaQ

23 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 - MinecraftHater

24 Horrid smells
25 Ice Cream Truck Song

I HATE THAT SONG! No offense to people who like it.

I like the ice cream from ice cream trucks, especially the ones with gumball eyes, but the song is so annoying!

One time a ice cream truck came by my house full bast and it was 3am and I could sware that I herd kid screaming

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

Girls walking around in bikini tops or loose sling tops with no bra, Put it away love.

What if it's your crush? - Captaincrunch2015

32 People Moaning When the Weather Isn't Perfect

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

33 No Football (Soccer)

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

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!

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... :(
