We all judge each other, it's human nature. We need to be able to make quick judgements: "is it safe to cross the street here?", "is this person telling the truth or trying to rip me off?", etc.


But there are certain things that we judge each over that some might consider petty. Clothing style, hairstyle, accent, all are quite superficial, really.

Reddit user Dent15 asked:

What are some small things that you silently judge people on?

A lot of these are less petty and more practical, if you ask me.

There's already enough noise without adding to it.

If someone gives their child an iPad in a public place with the volume turned all the way up, I immediately hate them.

Everyone secretly judges them. 

When they don't care that their kids are running amok in a restaurant.

It's not a contest. 

If they have to one up everything. I hate that.

Along those lines, when I tell a story and the other person says, “That's nothing" before proceeding to tell their story. Look, just because you have a story you THINK is better doesn't mean what I said is nothing. I hate that phrase so much.

Keep it to yourself. 

Talking on speaker phone in a public place. I didn't ask to hear about your cousin's ingrown toenail.

Nobody is right all the time. 

If people can admit it when they're wrong. It baffles me how many people I've met that are so afraid of saying "yeah I guess I messed up on that".

Also, how people react when someone says they were wrong. When someone openly admits that they were wrong, there's no need to go into a full "I told you so" celebration.

Why would you do this?

Lack of awareness about phone usage really puts salt in my pepper grinder.

Someone almost rode their bike into me recently because they were trying to cycle and text at the same time.

There's no such thing as too many. 

I'm going to interpret small as "petty."

The count and content of the stickers on your car.

It only takes a few seconds to tidy.

How they leave a table when at a restaurant

Edit: be kind to your waitress/waiter/host etc. It's easy and the right thing to do.

It's right there! 

People who just leave their carts in the parking lot instead of walking the four feet to the designated area to put it back so it doesn't go slamming into someone's car.

It takes 2 seconds to check. 

Misspelling people's names when they had the opportunity to check (eg in email- the person's name is right there!). It shows carelessness.

A good chunk of humanity have a hard time hearing certain truths. We don't want to admit what isn't working, because it's just human nature to be scared of being wrong. It's hard to admit weakness individually, much less as a whole.

An overwhelming majority of us have plenty of things we are annoyed by every single day, and also lack the power to doing anything about them.

From our childhood through our adult years, one thing we all dream of from time to time is all the things we could do if we had unlimited resources. Buy a castle and become your own anti-hero, solve world hunger, adopt ALL the animals, live on an endless cruise around the world, heck, buy a whole political party *cough cough*.

I admit that I am not a picky eater by any stretch of the imagination. I eat just about anything. I also consider myself pretty adventurous; when I travel, eating good food and trying the local cuisine is at the top of my list!

But even I would be hard-pressed to eat durian or even balut.

Would I say absolutely not? I'll have to get back to you after a trip to Southeast Asia. The jury's out for now.

People had very strong opinions on the food they want nothing to do with after Redditor KentuckyFriedEel asked the online community,

"What dish/food can f*** right off?"
