People Confess What Genuinely Disgusts Them

No two people react the same way to a pungent odor, gratuitous violence in film and television, or unruly, off-putting behavior.

As some people have a fairly high tolerance for gore, aren't bothered by taste and smell, and are so patient that they simply aren't bothered by anyone.

Although, everyone has their limits.

And despite what they might say, there are very few people who don't have one thing which even the very thought of will make them gag, just a little bit.

Redditor Remarkable_Major_872 was curious to hear the things that truly revolt people, leading them to ask:
"What genuinely disgusts you?"

Do They Think It Will Just Vanish?

Being Tricked Into Purchases...

"Ads with a fake close button that just redirect you to the link, particularly pop-up ads."

"I forgot about the mobile game ads with fake mini games that redirect you to the App Store."

"Those might be even worse."- Tyler_Martin1

Cleaning Comes At A Price...

"The goo in the sink drain once you’ve done the dishes."

"Touching this to clean the sink is always a gut-wrenching, vomit-inducing moment."- meiliraijow

No Matter The Package, Always Bad For You!

"Dipping tobacco."

"Carrying around a bottle of your own brown cloudy spit that smells like absolute death just skeeves me out on a level I can barely even describe."

"Bonus points if you're the douche who leaves the spit bottles or cups for other people to clean up."- Porn_is_my_bae

We all have our limits.

But even if you aren't wholeheartedly repulsed by any or all of these things, that still doesn't mean you should tolerate it!

How else will people learn to stop?

When at work we all often come across situations where you say... "I did not sign up for this!"

Where I went to school there was a special program that the super smart could enroll in.

It was called 'The International Baccalaureate.'

It's an intense program of elite classes, taught by the finest minds, and triple the homework of everyone else.

It was assumed that every student in the program would go onto rule the world.

Some did. Some most definitely did not.

Others cracked under the pressure of the program and fell apart by sophomore year.

So you never know.

There are plenty of backstabbers and those who are purported "friends" throwing you under the bus to save their reputation.

When we're feeling insecure, we tend to assume the worst about the people we include in our circle. Maybe it's time to stop that.

Because as it turns out, for the most part, people are kinder than we give them credit for, and not everything being discussed about you behind your back are always bad.

We've all had our moments where it took us an embarrassingly long time to grasp a concept.

Something we can laugh off after a few minutes, days or years.

However, sometimes we might encounter people whose grasp of reality, logic and common sense is so off the rails, that we still have trouble shutting our jaws.

We're talking "next-level stupid."

Mind you, this doesn't necessarily mean that these people are stupid themselves.

Rather, they find themselves in a moment where they don't come off looking like the sharpest knife in the box, leaving all those around them dumbfounded.

And inadvertently providing stories which will last them a lifetime.
