Recently we asked BuzzFeed Community to share with us the dumbest things Harry Potter ever did. And boy, did they deliver...
1. Guys, Harry Potter was a major dickhead. For starters, he made poor Hermione do all his homework.
2. Actually, he was a pretty crappy friend to her too. Remember when he spent half a book ignoring Hermione, all because she wanted to make sure his broomstick wasn't cursed?
3. Also, he pretty much ignored Hagrid throughout the series, except when he needed something.
4. He constantly acted like he had to do everything on his own with no help.
5. Can we also talk about how he was a bit of a fuckboy? He took Parvati to the Yule Ball (as a last resort), and spent the whole time ignoring her and moping about Cho.
6. Actually, he was so stubborn and bitter about Cho and Cedric that it took him months to use the tip Cedric gave him about the golden egg.
7. Then when Cho's boyfriend was MURDERED IN COLD BLOOD, he swooped in on her. But he was confused when she had emotions???
8. He was reckless AF and didn't ever think anything through.
9. Probably the biggest fuck-up he ever committed was completely ignoring the two-way mirror Sirius gave him.
10. Like, he KNEW that Voldemort was planting images in his head. But he still rushed off to "save" Sirius anyway, putting all his friends in mortal danger.
11. And then he refused to learn Occlumency from Snape, even though it could have made everything a lot easier.
12. Also remember when he used "Sectumsempra" on Draco without knowing what the spell actually did?
13. He truly didn't need to go down after Quirrell to get the Philosopher's Stone.
14. Also speaking of Philosopher's Stone. On the train, he bought the WHOLE FUCKING TROLLEY of sweets. Like... do you think some of the other kids on the train would want something?
15. He honestly thought that Dumbledore would kill an eight-year-old girl for a school tournament, and subsequently nearly came last in the Lake Task.
16. He 100% messed up when he goaded Ron into leaving them in Deathly Hallows.
17. Honestly, Harry fucking loved making everything about him, just because he's the Chosen One.
18. He totally forgot Ginny was possessed by Voldemort, and said so to her face.
19. Instead of waiting around for Ron's parents to help, he decided it'd be a good idea to steal a magical car and FLY TO HOGWARTS?????
20. He snapped the goddamn ELDER WAND.
21. He constantly got detention and fucked up the Quidditch team.
22. I will never ever be OK with how Harry completely forgave Snape for every shitty thing he'd ever done.
23. AND THEN he named his poor kid "Albus Severus", after the "two bravest men" Harry knew.
Before you ask, yes I am aware that Harry went through some really traumatic shit and he had a lot to deal with. I still reckon he acted like a real knob. See u in the comments xoxo.
