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.

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.

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.

Have you ever been reading a book, watching a movie, or even sitting down for a fantastical cartoon and began to salivate when the characters dig into some doozy of a made up food?

You're not alone.

Food is apparently fertile ground for creativity. Authors, movie directors, and animators all can't help but put a little extra time and effort into the process of making characters' tasty delights mouthwatering even for audiences on the other side of the screen.

Read on for a perfect mixture of nostalgia and hunger.

AllWhammyNoMorals asked, "What's a fictional food you've always wanted to try?"

Some people were all about the magical foods eaten in the magical places. They couldn't help but wish they could bite into something with fantastical properties and unearthly deliciousness.

Nutritious

"Enchanted golden apple" -- DabbingIsSo2015

"The Minecraft eating sounds make me hungry" -- FishingHobo

"Gotta love that health regeneration" -- r2celjazz

"Pretty sure those are based off the golden apples that grant immortality. Norse mythology I think?" -- Raven_of_Blades

Take Your Pick

"Nearly any food from Charlie and the Chocolate factory" -- CrimsonFox100

"Came here to say snozzberries!" -- Utah_Writer

"Everlasting Gobstoppers #1, but also when they're free to roam near the chocolate river and the entire environment is edible." -- devo9er

Peak Efficiency

"Lembas" -- Roxwords

"The one that fills you with just a bite? My fat a** would be making sandwiches with two lembas breads and putting bacon, avocado and cheese inside. Then probably go for some dessert afterwards. No wonder why those elves are all skinny, eating just one measly bite of this stuff." -- sushister

Some people got stuck on the foods they saw in the cartoons they watched growing up. The vibrant colors, the artistic sounds, and the exaggerated movements all come together to form some good-looking fake grub.

The One and Only

"Krabby patty 🍔" -- Cat_xox

"And a kelp shake" -- titsclitsntennerbits

"As a kid I always pretended burgers from McDonalds were Krabby Patties, heck from time to time I still do for the nostalgia of it all. Many of my friends did the same thing." -- Thisissuchadragtodo

Cheeeeeeeeese

"The pizza from an extremely goofy movie. The stringy cheese just looked magical lol" -- ES_Verified

"The pizza in the old TMNT cartoon as well." -- gate_of_steiner85

"Only bested by the pizza from All Dogs Go to Heaven." -- Purdaddy

Get a Big Old Chunk

"Those giant turkey drumsticks in old cartoons that characters would tear huge chunks out of. Those things looked amazing, turkey drumsticks in real life suck and are annoying to eat."

-- Ozwaldo

Slurp, Slurp, Slurp

"Every bowl of ramen on any anime, ever." -- Cat_xox

"Studio Ghibli eggs and bacon" -- DrManhattan_DDM

"Honestly, any food in anime. I swear to god half the budget no matter what the studio goes into making the food look absolutely delicious." -- Viridun

Finally, some highlighted the things that aren't quite so far-fetched, but still far enough away that it's nothing we'll be eating anytime soon.

That tease can be enough to make your mouth water.

What's In It??

"Butter beer" -- Damn_Dog_Inappropes

"came here to say this. i was pretty disappointed with the universal studio version which was over the top sweet. it was more of a butterscotch root beer. i imagine butter beer to be something more like butter and beer, which wouldn't be crazy sweet, but would have a very deep rich flavor" -- crazyskiingsloth

Slice of the Future

"The microwave pizzas in back to the future two" -- biggiemick91

"I've been fascinated with those for years! They just look so good!" -- skoros

As Sweet As They Had

"The Turkish Delight from Lion Witch & Wardrobe. The real ones I had weren't bad but nothing special." -- spoon_shaped_spoon

"Came here to say this. I know it's a real thing, but I always imagined that it must have been amazing to betray your siblings over." -- la_yes

"You're used to freely available too sweet sweets. For a WW2 era schoolkid, it would have represented all the sweets for an entire year." -- ResponsibleLimeade



Here's hoping you made it through the list without going into kitchen for some snack you didn't actually need.

When a movie rakes in a ton of cash at the box office, the studio that made it has only one thing on its mind: "How do we keep shaking this money tree?"

Unfortunately, that means they make sequels, sometimes sequels on sequels on sequels.

Oftentimes I like to do my best Ghostface impression and aggressively ask people what their favorite scary movies are. Because I personally have a lot! At the same time, I'm also terrified that at any point, I could end up getting my head punched off by Jason Vorhees (Part 8 of the series--best one IMO).

I hate hypocrites. They are the bane of my existence. All you have to do is stand behind your words. How hard is that? You said them. I especially get peeved when people bloviate on a topic and condemn and holler but then when it comes to them doing it... silence.

Redditor u/ErrForceOnes wanted to know about the moments people chose to curiously "pay no mind" by asking... What is a GIANT hypocrisy that no one seems to mind?
