Let's face it. We all have judgmental tendencies.

Some are very vocal about disliking a person, while others are more adept at expressing their animosity with one perfect stank eye.


Either way, as much as we feel like we generally get along with others, there are people we put our disapproving stamp on because of their personality, beliefs, or actions.

Redditor VanDerKrak wanted to explore more and asked:

"What's something that makes you instantly dislike a person?"

The responses regarding unlikable personality traits ranged from those who give insincere apologies, to people who are obnoxiously loud.

Do any of these scenarios seem familiar?

Sorry, Not Sorry

"When they apologize for doing something hurtful and they keep doing it again."

Authority On Everything

"when they act like they've experienced everything you have or know more about anything you are talking about as soon as you speak."

Loud and Proud

"Once at brunch, I was talking with this lady sitting near me. She mentioned being a teacher, and I joked that if I ever taught, the thing I'd have going for me is my loud voice, which would keep my students awake."

"Later on, her husband, unprompted, said he didn't think I was that loud and that he was louder. Then, I swear to God, in the middle of this nice restaurant, he let out an inarticulate bellow to prove his point."

"For the record, I'm a gay man and I was at brunch with my husband, so he couldn't possibly be insecure about a man chatting up his wife. He was just some weirdo who had to measure his d*ck in decibels. I can't understand people who have to be the best at anything, even dumb sh*t like who talks louder."

I'm More Tragic Than You

"Whenever they act like all of your life struggles are minute compared to theirs."

Just Say It

"If they are being passive-aggressive. Don't try to pass an insult off as a gift just because you put a bow on it. If you have something to say, just say it directly."

Communicating Like Adults

"THIS. JUST SPEAK WHAT'S ON YOUR MIND! If you have a problem, let's talk about it. I don't have time to interpret your passive aggressive statements. JUST COMMUNICATE. It's so easy... it's so easy to have a discussion when you're straight forward with your thoughts."

Higher Than Thou

"People who make fun of McDonald's workers or the like. I used to work there and now I have since moved to the corporate world, but working at McDonalds was the most life draining job I have ever had. True respect to anyone that does all that for minimum wage + the benefits of being cussed out by customers, ridiculed, spit on, demeaned by management and working insanely long hours."

Are You Listening?

"When you talk, they just glaze over, waiting for a chance to talk themselves. Usually about themselves."

The Blame Game

"Victim mentality, when they apply all their time and energy to assigning blame and complaining about things with no self-reflection or effort to change anything. Any advice given will be immediately shot down and met with a stream of excuses as to why."

Gatsby Complex

"Lying or pretending to be somebody you're not. Don't try to impress someone by bankrupting yourself by trying to live a champagne lifestyle on a koolaid budget."

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.
