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.

People Describe The Real Reason They Cut Ties With Their Best Friend

Friendships are one the most important and intimate connections young people make. Friends are the people you are close to, who you grow up with, and who are always there for you when you need them.

A majority of people have best friends. That's the one friend who you trust and love above everyone else. The one who has proven he'll always be there for you and the one you're ready to drop everything for.

However, not all friendships are meant to last. Sometimes, one or both of you will change. Other times, you'll just drift apart. And sometimes, the friendship will end because of malicious actions. Redditors seem to have a lot of those stories!

Divorced People Confess What Actually Ruined Their Marriage

Marriages fail for many reasons.

The truth is that many of them are avoidable reasons.

I always wonder what is at the crux of the dissolution of a love story.

Or maybe it's all like Buffy and Angel.

One partner will never have access to a full soul.

Whitney was right... "I'd rather be alone than unhappy!"

People Describe How The Smallest Amount Of Internet Fame Went To Someone's Head

Thanks to the internet and social media, it's never been easier to become famous.

Indeed, some people have used social media to such an effect, that they are as or more well known than any number of movie stars.

But others might have put something on the internet just for fun, unaware that they had a viral sensation on their hands ("Charlie bit my finger" anyone?).

Some people soak in this unexpected fame for a moment or two, and then let it pass as they go on with their lives.

Others, however, might enjoy being unexpectedly famous, and will relish in their unexpected celebrity for the rest of their lives.

No matter how small an audience their internet fame reached.
