I use this sub to stop me from procrastinating. It makes me sick in the stomach and I go back to getting work done. - /u/UNIScienceGuy



Where storytellers of all kinds share the stories that no one really needs to hear.

Pointless doesn’t mean boring. It means “without purpose or utility” (OED). We want the stories that you wanted to tell, but just didn’t have a reason to. Until now.

Sometimes, the stories that don't matter are the ones which matter the most.

Check out some of our favourites!

Mods have the authority to remove any post, for any reason, at any time. (But the most likely reason is not following the rules).


  1. All posts must be in story form. Story, as defined by the dictionary, is “a report or account of a matter.”
  2. No posts that are questions.
  3. No posts that are just statements of fact.
  4. Your story should be detailed enough to provide a good understanding of the situation, but don't spend hours on the description.
  5. Story titles should be relevant and descriptive.
  6. Stories should be your own.
  7. No cross-posting. If it’s x-posted, it has a point, and belongs somewhere else.
  8. No stories about liking your crush, or how you're bored, etc. This isn't the place for heavy or deeply personal subjects, either. Instead, try one of our suggested subreddits.
