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."

badchad65

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.

People Describe The Fastest They've Ever Seen A Coworker Get Fired

They say it's hard for workers to get fired from their jobs. That is unless, of course, the employee is self-sabotaging and has nothing at stake.

While there are many unemployed people desperately looking for work, there are apparently just as many of those who want nothing more than to leave a situation that makes them miserable, despite having a steady paycheck.

A trial can hinge on one simple piece of information.

All it could take for a suspect to walk free or go to jail for the rest of their lives is one single fact.

With this in mind, some lawyers will do their best to make sure that this information is buried, legally and ethically one hopes, and will never be brought up in trial.

However, for this to happen, Lawyers will still need to know this piece of information from their clients, as it otherwise could be brought up by the prosecution, effectively ending the case.

People Divulge Which Harmful Things Are Still Being Taught To Children Today

There is an ongoing concern that politicians are becoming too involved in what can and cannot be taught in classrooms.

Indeed, even with the school year in full swing, too many Florida public schools continue to find themselves insufficiently staffed with teachers, several of who resigned out of protest, following the controversial "don't say gay" bill, or being told they could not display historical Black figures on their bulletin boards.

It is in the single digits when children are at their most impressionable, when they begin to learn what's right and what's wrong, as well as how to treat others with kindness and compassion.

Making the dangerous information, or misinformation, or lack thereof which they are taught in schools and elsewhere all the more problematic, to the point of dangerous.

Weddings are a beautiful celebration of love.

Giving one the chance to witness two people begin their new life together.

Be they family, close friends, or merely a friend of your date, it's unlikely you will ever see the newlyweds ever looking happier in their life as they exchange vows, profess their love, and share their first dance.

Indeed, if they don't seem to be enjoying themselves at their own wedding, it doesn't bode particularly well for their future.

Nor does it bode well if one catches the newlyweds engaging in behavior which doesn't suggest they've taken their vows of commitment seriously.
