People Break Down Which Things They Absolutely Hate But Everyone Else Seems To Love

Okay, so I bring this up from time to time, but I don't get the love for Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Yeah, yeah, don't hate me. I think it's a horrid adaptation and Roald Dahl even disowned the final product after significant changes were made to his script. (I don't blame him one bit.) Before you get on my case though, just know I also despite Tim Burton's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory because it somehow manages to succeed at being so criminally empty. Shame, when the book is a classic of children's literature.

After Redditor harsley asked the online community, "What is something you hate that is universally loved?" people offered their opinions.


"Everyone talks about..."

Summer / hot weather!

I'm admittedly such a miser during summer, I'd happily skip straight to Autumn (best season). The only thing I enjoy about summer are intense thunderstorms!

It seems like most people feel more depressed in Autumn/Winter, but I'm the opposite, Summer makes me feel worse for some reason.

Everyone talks about how they can't wait to get away on holiday to really hot countries so they can lay in the sun and tan. That just sounds like my worst nightmare!

"This time of year..."

Super soft microfleece/minke fabrics. Gaaah it gives me the shivers. This time of year those blankets are everywhere, I feel compelled to touch the blanket then nearly gag from how soft it is. Why does my brain get stuck in that loop? Once I know that it's that specific softness I can't even look at it without cringing.

"Everyone I know..."

Reality TV. Everyone I know tells me they watch it to relax but it just stresses me out! Everyone is so upset with each other all the time, what's relaxing about that?

"I don't know how I get sick..."

Marijuana. Most people I know smoke/have smoked it. But when I get even the slightest whiff of the smoke, I get bad migraines that lasts 30 mins.. and I do mean literally EVERY single time. I don't know how I get sick or why it happens.

Everytime I would hang out with my Family/Friends, I would feel guilty because they would move to the window or they just usually stop coz they know that I get sick..

"The taste, the smell..."

Mushrooms. The taste, the smell, the rubberness texture of it just doesn't sit right with me.

"Stop."

How commercialized the Holidays have become.

I love Christmas, Easter, Independence Day, and Halloween.

What I hate is how commercialized they have become.

I have heard people see Christmas decorations being sold before HALLOWEEN! Last month, I walked into a store and saw Halloween crap! Dude! Stay in your lane! If you start selling Christmas stuff before Advent starts, you need to check yourself!

Also, those people who are like "Only 275 days until Christmas!" Stop. Please stop.

"I'm already tired..."

Babies. I hate babies. They are annoying, loud, and always have something gross coming out of them. I never want to have one in my house.

I'd be less annoyed if people weren't so obsessed with babies. I don't need to know about the color of your babies poop. I don't need to know about your baby who pees everywhere when they are changed. BABIES ARE EXHAUSTING AND I DON'T NEED THAT IN MY LIFE. I'm already tired from existing and having crap mental health.

"I understand..."

The Marvel movies and most big films. I understand there's a lot that goes into them but jeez. Cookie cutter stories, all CGI, and there's 500 films.

"No I won't."

Having children. Finally with being nearly 30 (as a woman) people stopped telling me "yOu wIlL cHaNgE yOur MiNd". No I won't. I just don't have any interest in getting and raising children. I don't understand why "raising your own blood" is interesting at all.

"There's nothing inherently wrong..."

Pro sports. They're such a waste of our collective time, attention, and money, especially since taxpayers have helped foot the bill for private stadiums.

On top of everything, they seem to train people in irrational loyalty to players, teams, and (in the US) the military. The teams are just businesses, the players are typically mercenaries who switch teams the moment they get offered a higher salary (and I don't blame them!).

There's nothing inherently wrong with sports, but we'd be better off if people focused on playing them at an amateur level and not caring beyond friends and family.

Many people value solitude, and having time to themselves.

For others though, loneliness can be a crippling feeling.

Having no one to talk to or spend time with can get wearying after an extended amount of time.

Something many people know more than ever after the global pandemic hit in spring of 2020.

But while some people simply succumb to being lonely, others will find ways to help them cope with, if not completely forget, being all alone.

Redditor No_Blackberry_6286 was curious to hear the different ways people have of coping with their loneliness, leading them to ask:

"Reddit, how do you cope with loneliness?"

In this day and age of advancement, it's crazy how so many things leave our heads scratching.

Like how in 2022 is such and such still around?

Everyone in New York wondered that for the past decade until they took the final payphone.

I always wonder about companies that still make you send a fax.

Y'all have heard of email right?

"It’s 2022, what shouldn’t exist now?"

It's PRIDE month. It's time to be loud and proud.

Well, every minute of everyday we should be loud and proud.

But this month gives you an extra special buzz.

So in the spirit of learning, we will be taking questions from the class.

I know cisgender straight people still have a lot they don't understand.

What do you need to know?

Redditorhre_nftwanted everyone to feel comfortable enough to be as aloud what they've been waiting to ask a queer person. Safe space for all. They asked:

"What question have you always wanted to ask LGBTQ+ people but didn’t because you don’t want to offend them?"
