Confused People Reveal What They Hate That Everyone Else Seems To Love

There are just some things in life we will never understand, especially when it comes to the tastes and likes of others. What people chose to wear, eat, sing or what activity they choose to partake in can leave one dumbfounded. How many times can you really watch THAT movie? Can we please discuss something else, anything? Do you even own a mirror? Those are just some of the questions I often find myself asking when trying to figure out my people. Or people in general.

Redditor _u/poopellar asked everyone What do your friends love to do that you absolutely hate? Open your horizons.

Tell me a story about their day, then when I try to tell them about my day he'll just go to his phone or get up and leave while I'm mid sentence.

This weekend I was telling him a story at breakfast. His wife got back from the bathroom and he left to use the bathroom. I wasn't done with the story. When he got back he just continued like I wasn't talking. And not like "Oh hey I have to use the bathroom brb" like just gets up and leaves.

I know he doesn't mean to do it but it really hurts my feelings... Like I put effort into hearing what you have issues with and offer advice and what have you. It'd be nice to feel like my issues are interesting sometimes too...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

Take me out to eat for my birthday and get the waitresses to sing and smear cake in my face.

GET IT TOGETHER PEOPLE...

To be irresponsible. FFS I'm not going to a party in a town a few dozen kms over without knowing how will I get back home. And even if I did, you can bet I wouldn't spend all my money on booze.

They got stranded there, over 50km from home, with no money, with no one that could go get them, at 8 am.

HEY IT'S ME!!!

Calling out to strangers pretending to know them. Walking up to them. Having a proper conversation and after they convince the stranger they met somewhere before saying oops wrong person...

JUST CALL ME....

Two different groups of friends. One loves heading out to places on the weekends where there's always pounding music and shots, the other would rather stay in and watch netflix all weekend.

It's killing me trying to drag either group towards a happy medium. I just want to go out somewhere for casual drinks where we can actually hear a conversation.

BUT IT'S FASHION DARLING!

Buy the most expensive clothes and then not wear them again and buy more after a month or so.

WHAT HAPPEND TO ZELDA?

League of legends, toxic crap! I like to play games for fun, not to get into arguments with people who act like their live depends on some stupid game.

THAT'S NOT COOL.

Making fun of me.

Walter-Melon1

Once they start, they just won't stop, and everything you do or say, no matter how innocent, would just become more ammo for them.

ABRACADABRA!

Magic the gathering. Now I shouldn't say I absolutely hate the game, I just never could get into it. What I absolutely hate is when we all get together to hang out, and they all end up playing for hours while I sit there not caring.

GOOD NIGHT.

Get together at 9pm. I get it, you need to put the kids down first or you want to come home and 'get ready' after work but for the love of god I am in bed by 10:30.

ALWAYS KEEP A FLASK!

Going out and bar hopping. Too much money and too many people. I'll get faced at home, thanks

I CAN'T HEAR YOU!

I have friends who are in a really crappy punk band. I like punk, but their band is god-awful.

Maxwyfe

SOLUTION?

Go and put noise canceling ear plugs in?

PURE AS THE DRIVEN SNOW!

Unbeknownst to most of my friends, I am still a virgin. I don't like hearing them talk about sex. It freaks me out.

BE IN THE MOMENT...

Taking pictures to post on social media. Can't we just do something without having to talk about how many likes we're getting!? It's so annoying to me, I couldn't care less. I mentioned this to one of them and apparently it was offensive. We're in our mid-twenties. No one gives a s**t that we went out. Also I think it's embarrassing to take a bunch of pictures over and over because they don't like any of them, like get over yourself!

NOT FO THE FAINT OF HEART!

Horror movies. They go to the cinema on the regular to see whatever slasher-jump-scare movie is playing, but I just don't enjoy it. I tried. I really did.

Now I either go and see a different movie that's playing at the same time, or just meet them for drinks afterwards. It's a good system.

CAN WE BE ADULTS?

Get together and talk about their children. I liked it before when they had a personality and I could talk about more than 1 topic.

NOBODY SHOPS IN PUBLIC ANYMORE!

Hang around the mall. They never even get food while they're there, they just look at clothes for 2 hours and leave! I just wanted Auntie Anne's.

THEY SHOULD BE IN BED!

This bar and grill that allows children after 10 p.m. My roommates and I come from the same city and they're friends with some mutual acquaintances who have a daughter, so they always go to that place on Saturday nights because they can't be assed to pay for a babysitter.

I'm not even a kid person in the first place, I refuse to have my Saturdays held hostage to a child.

I'LL JUDT DO BUFFET THANK YOU...

Going somewhere "nice" almost always entails some complicated booking system where we're told we'll get our table for 90 minutes only, and we have to jump through hoops if the party is larger than 6, somebody needs to leave a credit card number. You can sit down till everyone's there. Half your group just want to instagram stuff so there's that. The food is good but fussy and overpriced, you don't want to say it but the steak you had at your local spot for a fraction of the price is more pleasant. If the order is not quite right you feel awkward or that you're making too big a deal of it. Everyone's sort of anxious and tense because we're all uncomfortable both psychologically (ehh this is a place where some drinks cost more than my car) and physically (had to dress up to fit in). just can't resist them.

I'm all for places that have better quality food, I'm 100% about getting out of my comfort zone and yes, sometimes it's nice to be a little fancy. When I look back on some of the "ohh let's go somewhere special!" evenings, objectively speaking I did not enjoy it.

We're all well aware of the weird, horrible, predatory things men do when attracted to women. But what about when women are the culprits?

We've all heard how parenting is a full-time job. So it's not surprising to learn that parents have discovered plenty of quirks and methods to make things just a little bit more efficient during that eternal slog.

Stupid is as stupid does. And it’s pretty obvious when some poor, misinformed, potentially ignorant soul needs to be put in their place. Luckily, there are a lot of witty ways to do just that. We love a good euphemism.

Wanna know the best way to call out stupidity when you see it? Stay tuned.

U/lientubay asked: What's the best euphemism for telling people that they're stupid?

​Get a load of these sick burns. I swear, the people of Reddit are harsh.

Call outs are a universal language.

In Russian we have "intelligent thoughts have always followed him, but he was faster".

Humphr1es

We have something similar in German: "Intelligence is chasing you, but you are faster."

Tatsukishi

Be your own Easter Bunny.​

You could hide your own Easter eggs.

Bdiz78

The great Harvey Korman had some Alzheimer's @ 2005, and he still went on a talk show. They asked him how he was doing and he said he was OK. "Now I can hide my own Easter eggs." RIP.

Gas-Blaster

That’s cold.​

“At this point, you can only impress me."

Roman_Suicide_Note

This reminds me of something I saw in a show recently. One character said "Would you think less of me if ____." The other character said "I could never think less of you."

Catty_wampus

​I lol’d.

I think I saw this one here previously "You aren't the biggest idiot in the world but you better hope they don't die".

Soalindie

Once told this to my brother, his immediate response was "hey, please don't die".

Srakrn

It takes a very intelligent person to properly call out a dumb person. Weird how that works, huh?​

When the bears are smarter than the tourists.​

Now I know what Douglas Adams was talking about.

"A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools."

BerenTheBold

As the park rangers in Yellowstone say- making a bear-proof trash can is very difficult due to the considerable overlap between the smartest bears and the dumbest tourists.

Lahmmom

​That’s a gross mental image.

In Greece we say "when it was raining brains, you had an umbrella".

GSavvage

In German we ask God for help. "God, let there be raining brains" this sounds so weird but idk how to express it better lol.

Edit: In German it's "Gott, lass Hirn regnen".

Foxpawdot

It’s probably a bad sign when your lawyer calls you dumb.

Lawyer to client who shared detailed attorney-client privileged strategy memorandum with a whole bunch of people, including an adverse party:

Client: "Is there anything you can do to fix this?"

Attorney: "No, you've pretty much waived the privilege and now they know everything."

Client: "Is there anyway to put a positive spin on this?"

Attorney: "Well, I suppose the judge might buy that this proves that you lack the mental capacity to form specific intent."

Malibulobo

These next ones are just plain cold, but probably very much deserved.​

Meanness from a Canadian is probably well-earned.

Ahh Terry, having you around is like losing three good men.

StrykerSeven

Oof, that’s harsh.

He's so far behind he thinks he's first.

Perstn

I had a keychain as a kid that said, "She who laughs last thinks slowest.”

KatieSedai

Those are some gross socks.

Once heard someone say "Well he's about as sharp as a sock full of soup".

Angrypunishment

"Sharp as a marshmallow" was one that went around my friend circle.

Rubywolf27

In the words of the great prophets Smash Mouth, “I ain’t the sharpest tool in the shed”. That self-burn is perhaps one of the most classic euphemisms. And I just almost misspelled “euphemism”. So I can definitely relate to that lyric.

A good way to exercise your brain? Keep thinking of creative ways to insult people. Trust me, it works like a charm

It's a plague many of us would rather not admit occurs on a daily basis.
