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.

If you've never seen the comedy classic, "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," there is a scene where Arthur, King of the Britons, encounters a black knight guarding a bridge. Arthur quickly figures out the stalwart knight will not let him pass, so the two do battle, with the king severely injuring his enemy in the process.

He cuts off all his arms and legs.

Yet the black knight persists, insisting his injuries are, "but a scratch."

Turns out this happens to people in real life, not so much with swords and knights, but with can openers and ice skates.

We are currently in a market that favors workers over employers – many workers feel empowered to seek out different positions and have reevaluated what they want in their careers amid the financial fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Many workers left their jobs in search of greener pastures because they were ready for a change, and others were more than happy to leave behind toxic workplaces that only burned them out.

As you can imagine, they've become rather adept at noticing red flags during the interview process and beyond.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor taylortaylortaylorrr asked the online community,

"What is a red flag from an employer that people might not immediately recognize as a red flag?"

Computers are not everyone's strong suit. Generation z is now reaching adulthood, and they've had computers, smart phones, and iPads since birth.

For anyone in an older generation, this wasn't the case. Computers weren't even advertised for the home until the Superbowl of 1984, and even then it was priced at $2,500.

Come the turn of the 21st century, computers are a staple in the home, but the advancements in the last two decades have left some people scrambling to keep up. Things that might seem basic to some are shockingly uncommon to others.

Living close to the Everglades, weird wildlife encounters don't really seem all that "weird" anymore. South Florida is some next-level wilderness.
