Let's face it: We all have petty opinions.
For example, I know I am rather anal-retentive about my cleaning. No one else does it the way I prefer the way I like it to be done so of course that means I'm stuck doing it myself.
You really can't trust most people to do it for you, and you'd be surprised how much I've sparred with friends over the possibility of hiring cleaning services. For one thing, as great as that would be, it's expensive. For another... would I actually be satisfied? How will they know except through osmosis that I prefer to load the dishwasher a certain way or have a specific way that I clean my air fryer?
The jury's out on that one, friends.
People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor shazulmonte asked the online community,
"What is the pettiest, silliest, most meaningless hill you are willing to die on?"
"I've said it before..."
"I've said it before and I'll say it again: we need better standardization of canned food can sizes. Also, the cans should all nest when stacked."
I see no lies. What's up with this?! We demand changes now!
"Classic rock is a sub-genre of rock created between the mid-1960s through the early-to-mid-1980s; it is not a radio format for aging rock songs."
I can support this.
Just because Nirvana and Soundgarden are "old" now doesn't make them classic rock––they're grunge!
"The album for a live musical..."
"The album for a live musical is not a soundtrack - it's a cast recording."
Don't ever say "soundtrack" around musical theater people. They will end you. Absolutely end you.
"I will not work..."
"I will not work for a company that doesn't post salary range in the job description or discuss salary in the first interview. You have my resume which is what I bring to the table. I deserve to know what you are offering upfront."
More people should take this stance. Searching for a job is hard enough!
"There is a conspiracy..."
"There is a conspiracy against me by a shadowy cabal to drive me insane by always making sure the screwdriver I find is never the kind I need at that moment."
This might be true.
And who's to say I'm not a part of it?
"Most screen actors..."
"Most screen actors shouldn't be voice actors. Most of the time they suck at it and they're only there because they're a famous name and because the film industry takes animation less seriously. Even worse if it's a non-acting celebrity providing the voice work."
I can co-sign this. I have heard so many bad voice acting jobs over the years. Meanwhile, the people who are actually good at this are pushed out of roles they'd absolutely nail.
"You LOSE LOOSE change. Your team did not loose. You did not loose your wallet. You don’t have lose change. This is my Waterloo."
I agree with this! It is maddening. And it's everywhere online! Everywhere!
"Having any sound..."
"Having any sound coming from your phone over the speaker in public. TF is wrong with you? I don't need to hear your music OR your conversation!"
The people who do this are monsters.
And yes, I will die on that hill.
"DNA testing like ancestry.com is weird and if anyone's gonna test my DNA and add it to a database they should pay ME. Not the other way around."
Just one of many reasons why I haven't bothered with that. No way.
"... something that happens every day."
"Every day: something that happens every day."
"Everyday: ordinary, unremarkable."
Similarly: "apart" and "a part" are opposites. Opposites!
Why is this so difficult for so many people to understand?!
We all have that topic we have strong opinions on, and sometimes, other people's disregard can drive us crazy. It turns out that that topic can be rather innocuous, relatively speaking.
What's that one topic for you? Feel free to tell us all about it in the comments section below!
