People Break Down Which Modern Trends They Absolutely Hate

You know what would be great?

If "family influencers" didn't exist. I don't know what people get out of watching people do their shopping and raise their kids, but it sounds boring as hell. Oh, and did I mention that the children have pretty much no privacy from the moment they're born? Yeah... that'll be a treat for them to comprehend when they're older.

But there are a host of other things out there that are just as annoying.


People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor RAZOR314 asked the online community:

"What modern trend do you absolutely hate?"

"News agencies writing articles..."

"News agencies writing articles about "all these people are saying X" when it's just a few random people on Twitter, and generally the trend of amplifying fringe theories, beliefs, conspiracies, etc..."

I think one of the unfortunate developments in the modern media landscape is the obsession with Twitter.

I think it really exacerbates some current issues of representation in the media.

"I hate these videos..."

"I hate those videos with a split screen and something interesting is happening on one half, while an 'influencer' is literally just watching on the other half."

"I do not give a single f*ck about the influencer. I just want to see the thing on the other side. You know, the thing worth reacting to."

Penguigo

So true.

They can't create worthwhile content so they "react" to the worthwhile content.

"People recording..."

"People recording when they should be helping."

Reddit

Sometimes recording does help — look at all the instances of police brutality that have made national headlines — but it's not when people are recording for likes, views, clout etc...

"The abundance..."

"The abundance of unskippable ads on videos. I 100% guarantee I will actively try to not buy your product if you're interrupting what little precious time I have to watch something."

Goatiac

Yes, it makes me so angry.

Stop wasting my time.

I will click out of something so fast.

"Corporations..."

"Corporations buying single family homes and turning them into rentals."

Reddit

And people wonder why there's a housing crisis.

"All controls..."

"All controls in a car being through a touch screen."

"For driving safety I wanna keep my eyes on the road, and want to find controls (like window wipers, radio by touch. With a touch screen, I have to look to see if I am touching the right place on the screen for the control I want."

u233

Yes! It's an unnecessary design change, honestly more trouble than it's worth.

"The fact..."

"The fact that EVERYTHING is a f*cking ad."

There are many ways to get around that and you can learn about it in my new book How to get rid of ads (free with your Amazon Audible trial).

"Everything nowadays..."

"Subscription services. Everything nowadays is being turned into a monthly bill."

TutuKitten

It's awful. And everything is so expensive. Why bother having all these subscriptions in the first place, right?

"The abundance..."

"The abundance of people trying to be influencers/streamers, while the majority of them are about as interesting as a boil."

mugen1337

To be honest, most people would rather watch the boil.

Frustrated yet?

We live in a pretty cool world. It'd just be better if most of this stuff didn't exist.

The key to any successful relationship is communication.

The ability to be open and receptive to what a significant other has to say, as well as the ability to be able to convey something weighing on one's mind, can be healing.

But depending on the circumstance, some things are better left unsaid.

Every family has a black sheep or every family in its entirety are black sheep.

What is a "black sheep" anyway?

It used to mean a person who brought shame or embarrassment to a family, but it's more often used now to mean the member who is just very different from everyone else—sometimes in a good way.

Sex is great, but there are more ways than one to accomplish that euphoric feeling without sex.

There are so many small, ordinary aspects of life that can just send a person and we come across them daily.

A good steak.

A home repair.

The things that make you say...

"I tingle all over."

People need to stop throwing out unwanted advice.

And when it is requested, think before you speak.

People with mental disorders don't need everyone telling them they have a fix like "exercise" or "herbal supplements."
