Everyone has unusual phobias.

Things which they simply can't bear the sight of, and are forced to turn away when they find themselves in the presence of it.

More often than not, these things are usually habits or behaviors which one normally wouldn't do in polite society.

But, have you ever been repulsed by something that the majority of people might consider "normal"?

Something that's just an everyday occurrence in life?

Redditor Allthelights011 was curious to learn what "normal" things fellow Reddit users were disgusted by, leading them to ask:

"What’s a completely normal thing you find disgusting?"


Fun to do, not to watch.

"Watching people eat."- elladeighthecat·

Just not my style

"Gauged ears, or is it gaged ears?"

"I don't know."

"Big gross holes in people's ears gross me the f*ck out."- alienanimal

Blood? No problem. Saliva on the other hand...

"Spit."

"I was a nurse for 6 months before I found a better paying job and I could deal with blood, feces and urine no problem but if someone is drooling or spitting it grossed me out."- sayziell

Just because it's nature doesn't mean it isn't gross.

"When animals are 'doin' it'."- Colonelfudgenustard

Every month!

"Periods."

"I know it's completely normal but just the initial cramps and mood swings honestly suck."

Mmm, that's good.

"Licking fingers while eating."- scapstick

Not pleasant to watch or do.

"Vomiting."

"The feeling after you puke is terrific."

"It's all the sh*t you feel beforehand and the act of throwing up itself that weirds me out."- geico_fire

No one needs them or needs to see them.

"Skin tags."

"I know people can’t help them and they’re painful to remove but they make me physically ill."- Stealthnt13

Wash your freakin' hands!

"Dirt in your nails"- dejavuthrills

If I didn't actually have to, I wouldn't...

"Pooping!"- stormwaltz

Perhaps what's most difficult about these particular aversions, is that ignoring or avoiding them, or simply looking the other way might not be possible.

Leaving one no other choice than to grin and bear it.

And maybe occasionally withhold the vomit you feel coming...


People Divulge Which Instances Of The Mandela Effect Freaked Them Out The Most

The Mandela effect is when multiple people share the same, incorrect memory.

Its name stems from when paranormal researcher Fiona Broome falsely believed that the future president of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, died in prison in the 1980s.

A false memory she shared with a number of others.

Our memories have been known to deceive us, as we might frequently forget someone's name or one of our numerous online passwords.

But when we share a memory that turns out to be false with many others, convincing ourselves it wasn't the truth can be a very difficult ordeal indeed.

One last time. One last meal.

How do you chose a last meal?

Let's hope we never have to find out.

People on death row get that option.

Do they deserve it?

Whose to say?

But they have it.

A steak. A pizza... Burger King.

The food world is their oyster.

Oyster. Also an option.

The menu is endless...

On rare occasions though, people might realize that their friends were not exactly who they thought they were, and didn't like who they revealed themselves to be.

When visiting any foreign country, one should always be familiar with the laws and customs of the land.

After all, what might be generally accepted on your home turf, might be frowned upon, if not illegal, elsewhere.

For that matter, even locals might need a refresher course on what they can and can't do while at home.
