People's tastes are anything but universal, but there are some things that are distinctly more popular than others.

It can get pretty lonely when you're the only person you know who can't stand the current popular thing.


Reddit user Lil Crackerjack asked:

"What is something you hate that everyone loves?"

Cocophony

Loud cars and motorcycles. Everybody seems to like them. Even non-enthusiasts but I absolutely despise them.

Hops

Sweet tea is very popular where I live, I think it's foul. Also IPA style beer.

-jeaneeebeanneee

Gum

Ever since I can remember I have always hated gum. I hate everything about it especially when people chew with their mouths open and you can see it swirling around i am instantly repulsed.

U2

Although it's a huge part of my generation I really hate U2. Always have and always will. Something about their music, Bono, and The Edge just drive me crazy.

Raymond

Grease

Grease. I hate the story, I hate the characters, I hate the music, and I absolutely hate the message. I never saw the big deal as a kid, and the older I get, the more I hate it.

-InRustWeTrust

Love

Probably too late for a UK entry: Love Island.

Why, just why would anyone care?

Unity Candles

"Unity candles at weddings. The thing you are symbolizing is literally the thing you are doing.

The Tingles

Asmr. The tingles are really uncomfortable for me and I just cant deal with it. I also cant deal with my neck being touched so that might have something to do with it I dunno.

Posers

Posing for pictures by myself

Reality

The Bachelor/Bachelorette. What is the appeal of watching a bunch of the opposite sex basically lying, cheating, and stealing for a random stranger? I don't get it.

-FuelFan98

Gender Reveals

Gender reveal parties.

-pho3k

They're getting way too out of hand.

Next they're literally going to blow up buildings just to uncover the coloured wall coinciding with the gender of the baby or something like that.

-DeviousMelons

Celebs

Celebrity obsession and worship. It bothers me.

-BellaDonnaBerry

Kids

Children, I guess. I don't hate them but my disinterest in my extended family member's kids borders on apathy. There are kids in my family I've never met and I'm ok with it.

I met one of the newest ones this weekend while I was a little tipsy and my aunt got mad when I said, "there's another one?"

-butisitok

Tea

Tea even though I'm British (English).

Hate iced tea, coffee, mocha, lattes, cappuccinos, Frappuccino's, anything like that.

-RueDistrict11

Avocados

Avocado.

I know everyone loves guacamole, but I just hate it.

-Irving180

Summer

Summer and it being sunny and hot

-tigger1993

Soda

Soda. Any carbonation tastes like it's burning my tongue. I'd rather go thirsty for hours than drink one soda. My kids are the same way.

-TechyDad

Wine

Wine. I am apparently the only suburban mom who doesn't drink wine, and it makes other suburban moms incredibly uncomfortable.

-SheShouldGo

Not everyone needs to love everything... but we all certainly hate something or other.

Children tend to believe just about anything they hear.

That there are monsters under your bed, watching too much TV will make your head explode, and silly faces will be permanent if you make them too often.

The sky is truly the limit when it comes to silly things that children will believe.

Some call it naivitée, other's youthful innocence.

But it's hard not to look back with embarrassment on certain things we believed as a child, that today might simply seem dumb.

Redditor Disastrous_Toe_6548 was curious to learn the multitude of silly things people believed when they were children, leading them to ask:

"What's the dumbest thing you believed as a kid?"
