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?"

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?

Foods With Textures That People Can't Stomach No Matter How It's Served

Sometimes not liking a food is just a matter of trying it prepared a different way—sautéed instead of boiled, raw instead of cooked, chopped up really small.

But sometimes there's just no way to hide the texture of a particular food and, if you don't like it, it will ruin any dish it's a part of.

We have a problem with guns.

Not just America, but humans in general.

Too many lives have been lost.

That's why it's so scary to think about a moment when one is directly pointing at you.

And you lived to tell the tale.

This might not surprise you much but you should never trust the glass in hotel rooms.

When she said that, it put me off using glasses put out in hotel rooms ever again.

But that's not the only horror story from the land of hotels, five star or otherwise.

Adult Problems People Were Woefully Underprepared For

As teenagers, most ambitious pre-adolescents looked forward to life beyond high school where the freedom for them to live their lives without the supervision of parents or guardians awaited them.

But when they barreled through phases of teen angst, obtaining driver's licenses, and finally being able to see an R-rated movie without sneaking into one, nothing could really prepare them for adulting.

Being told how to be an adult is one thing. Navigating through adulthood on your own, however, can be a very sobering experience.
