People's tastes are anything but universal, but there are some things that are distinctly more popular than others.

It can get pretty lonely when you're the only person you know who can't stand the current popular thing.


Reddit user u/Lil Crackerjack asked:

"What is something you hate that everyone loves?"


20.

Loud cars and motorcycles. Everybody seems to like them. Even non-enthusiasts but I absolutely despise them.

Sweet tea is very popular where I live, I think it's foul. Also IPA style beer.

Ever since I can remember I have always hated gum. I hate everything about it especially when people chew with their mouths open and you can see it swirling around i am instantly repulsed.

Although it's a huge part of my generation I really hate U2. Always have and always will. Something about their music, Bono, and The Edge just drive me crazy.

Do you like Chris though?

-15jackets

15. 

Grease. I hate the story, I hate the characters, I hate the music, and I absolutely hate the message. I never saw the big deal as a kid, and the older I get, the more I hate it.

14.

Probably too late for a UK entry: Love Island.

Why, just why would anyone care?

13.

"Unity candles at weddings. The thing you are symbolizing is literally the thing you are doing.

12.

Asmr. The tingles are really uncomfortable for me and I just cant deal with it. I also cant deal with my neck being touched so that might have something to do with it I dunno.

Posing for pictures by myself

-tooth-doc

What do i do with my hands?

How big should I smile?

Should I wear a leotard? What even is a leotard?

It's all Too much.

Crime procedurals.

Every single show is the same. All of them.

Your Cast:

The Leader who knows it all

The quirky lab tech

The tough cop who the leader forms a romantic connection with.

The goes against the rules renegade tech

The Newbie

9.

The Bachelor/Bachelorette. What is the appeal of watching a bunch of the opposite sex basically lying, cheating, and stealing for a random stranger? I don't get it.

-FuelFan98

8.

Gender reveal parties.

-pho3k

They're getting way too out of hand.

Next they're literally going to blow up buildings just to uncover the coloured wall coinciding with the gender of the baby or something like that.

-DeviousMelons

7.

Celebrity obsession and worship. It bothers me.

-BellaDonnaBerry

6.

Children, I guess. I don't hate them but my disinterest in my extended family member's kids borders on apathy. There are kids in my family I've never met and I'm ok with it.

I met one of the newest ones this weekend while I was a little tipsy and my aunt got mad when I said, "there's another one?"

-butisitok

5.

Tea even though I'm British (English).

Hate iced tea, coffee, mocha, lattes, cappuccinos, Frappuccino's, anything like that.

-RueDistrict11

4.

Avocado.

I know everyone loves guacamole, but I just hate it.

-Irving180

3.

Summer and it being sunny and hot

-tigger1993

2.

Soda. Any carbonation tastes like it's burning my tongue. I'd rather go thirsty for hours than drink one soda. My kids are the same way.

-TechyDad

1.

Wine. I am apparently the only suburban mom who doesn't drink wine, and it makes other suburban moms incredibly uncomfortable.

Being woken up suddenly is not very good for our health.

Especially for the elderly, it's not something to make a habit of. Sleep interruption can increase blood pressure, cause a worsened self image, and cause a day filled with irritation and confusion.

No one wants to be woken up, but there are definitely some reasons for being woken up that are worse than your alarm clock.

We went to Ask Reddit to find out some of the worst reasons people have been woken up.

People have a habit of excusing crap behavior - honestly because it's often easier in the short term. Long term = flaming dumpster fire.

We live in a time where we are critically re-examining how we pay workers. After a two-year-long pandemic where some low-income and "unskilled" jobs were deemed "essential," we now must put our money where our mouth is.

For too long in the world have incredibly important jobs been overlooked or else outright maligned. Teachers in the USA make some of the least money, career-wise, and have some of the hardest jobs. Dancers pay to put their bodies through hell with no guarantee of paid work after training.

What causes a small town to die?

Honestly, there can be quite a few factors, but perhaps the biggest one is that small towns often lack the upward mobility opportunities that are more available in urban areas.

As a result, many towns around the United States for instance have lost tens of millions of people as their populations seek jobs and opportunities elsewhere.

And what remains of these places can be pretty sketchy.

People told us more after Redditor RadicalizedSnackWrap asked the online community,

"What's a super sketchy US city that we never hear about?"
