You meet someone new. It's going pretty well, you're connecting, conversation is flowing smoothly.

Then they spy someone out the corner of their eye, make sure there's no one else within earshot, and drop an unabashedly racist comment.

"What makes you lose respect for someone instantly?" –– Redditor floisnotokay struck a nerve, because people were quite eager to share all the things people do to earn a permanent strike in their books.


"Treating someone..."

Giphy

Treating someone who can't do anything for them like crap.

"Lack of compassion..."

Lack of compassion and empathy for anyone in general. And Ungratefulness.

"When they won't..."

When they won't/can't let you finish a sentence. It's generally an indication that they aren't listening and are just waiting for their turn to talk instead, but can't even wait.

"Talking..."

Talking behind someones back, using trust as an advantage, denying reality, constant lying, narcissism, lack of empathy, verbal and physical abuse.

"Bragging about..."

Bragging about their moral failings as if they were virtues. One person bragged about when he was a cashier he put everyone down for the donation even if they said no, hoping they wouldn't check the receipt, and said he won employee of the month for it. I mean, we've all done bad stuff in our lives, but most of us have the decency to feel bad about it after.

"When someone laughs..."

When someone laughs at people who trying to better themselves. I knew someone who would laugh at an out of shape jogger, or make fun of the skinny kid trying to get muscle in the gym.

"Always being the victim."

Always being the victim. Everything that happens to you is someone else's fault. Once I see that pattern in someone, I'm out.

"When someone..."

When someone asks you a question and then gets distracted by their phone while you're answering and end up completely ignoring your answer. Or just people ignoring you for their phone in general, I'm so sick of it.

Reaper-of-Reefer

"Disrespect..."

Disrespect for service workers / public servants / emergency responders. Seriously, what do you think the city would look like without them?!

"If people are being themselves..."

Prejudice. If people are being themselves and not harming anyone while doing so, just let them be! What's so wrong about that?

People Break Down Which TV Shows No One Else Seems To Remember

As a kid, I remember being obsessed (like obsessed) with David the Gnome and his fox Swift. I was tuned in daily to watch the adventures, get all misty eyed for the hurt animals the gnomes saved, and sobbed in abject wonder when the gnomes finally lived all 400 years of their gnome life and transitioned into the trees that make up the woods they live in.

The trees are their ancestors, y'all! The treeees! They protect the trees because they're family. Trees grow intertwined because they were so in love when they were gnomes.

Fam! This show was everything ... except memorable for other people because I was in my 30s talking to someone from another country before I met the first person who remembered this show.

Which, honestly, is kind of insulting to gnomes and trees.

Working in entertainment production is one of those things that sounds awesome - and make no mistake, it is.

It's just that it's also one of those jobs that means when your partner calls you at 1 in the morning to ask where you are, and you tell them you're out measuring lemons for Beyoncé... it's not a euphemism and it's not that weird.

Queen Bey wants a bowl of 15 evenly sized lemons for her dressing room, Queen Bey gets a bowl of 15 evenly sized lemons for her dressing room.

And because catering runners care about doing their jobs well and usually have a multi-tool on them anyway, Beyoncé is getting the sexiest, most uniformly sized, lemons we can find.

In spite of considerable work being, and progress, made to change things, it remains a fact that men have countless advantages in modern society.

In addition to not having to deal with several biological issues all women must endure, men still seem to have the upper hand when applying for positions of power, or being trusted with major responsibilities.

As a result, those who do not identify as men often roll their eyes when men of any age offer even the slightest complaint.

Which doesn't mean that plenty of men still maintain that there are definite downsides to carrying those he/him pronouns.

Depending on the job, non-office employees work tirelessly to push through with their physically-demanding tasks despite their fatigue to earn that paycheck.

But in their exhaustion, judgments can be impaired and exhausted workers can be vulnerable to workplace hazards.

And when an accident occurs while on company property, it's a devastating predicament that can have long-term effects.
