People Share The Things They Find Completely Overrated

For the life of me, I can't understand how anyone could still watch The Walking Dead. I just checked and the damn thing has had 11 seasons. 11 seasons!

Can you imagine?

People enjoy watching characters follow a set of train tracks for an entire season I guess. (For context, I made it to the beginning of the seventh season before I threw in the towel, and it was really testing my patience well before then.)

But there's so much more out there that's equally overrated. Television is the least of our problems.


People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor PieinHorse asked the online community:

"What is very overrated?"

"The perceived security..."

"The perceived security of most jobs."

Replace jobs with locks or doors or windows and it's still true.

"Influencers."

"Influencers. I'm not sure what's more ridiculous, the fact someone believes they are an "influencer" or those who actually follow them and are influenced by said influencer."

aussie_shane

I scarcely think about them. Out of sight, out of mind.

"After owning..."

"Designer brands and bags. After owning an item from each brand, it’s really the most big waste of money people can put their money on."

You do get what you pay for up to a certain point.

"The extra leg room..."

"First Class Airline tickets!"

"We lucked up on our last flight that we had no choice but to get first class and our company paid for it, but I can 100% say that it was NOT worth the extra $700."

"The extra leg room was nice, as I'm 6'7", but the "free cocktails" and additional food? Nah homie, I'm good."

ecallowsamoht

Was this domestic? For those short flights First Class is pretty much not worth it, but for international long haul? A lie-down bed for a 13 hour flight is worth the 2x or more price, plus the other perks.

"I prefer..."

"Casual sex. I prefer competitive sex."

Evolutionarily speaking, life is about competitive sex...

"Being famous..."

"Being famous must suck big time. Imagine not being able to go shopping, taking a chill walk in the park, go to the beach, supermartket, etc... without people engaging with you."

Pcostix

Say goodbye to any privacy whatsoever. No thank you.

"Spent my prime years..."

"Alcohol. Spent my prime years drinking at college and all that, still say it’s the most overrated thing in history. So many better drugs that could have prevented long and short term health issues, made things more peaceful, more efficient, more successful, and so on. The fact that it’s globally advertised every millisecond proves it’s overrated."

DFHartzell

There's nothing wrong with deciding to stop drinking (or never drinking at all) and people should not be shamed for it.

"Why?"

"Huge weddings. Why? Spend the money on something important or on a trip."

Ginger_Chick

Some people want their best day ever to be a big party with all the people they care about. But there is a crazy level of stress involved in planning a party that size.

"Being an adult."

"Being an adult. What BS is this, and why the hell did we want to be adults when we were kids?"

imunclebubba

Nah, being an adult is awesome. I wouldn't change it for the world. Freedom!

"Half of the time."

"Hot weather. Half of the time it is just horrible and you’re sweating in your clothes and the other half you’re at the beach burning alive."

patrickgall

Sorry, I'd rather it be hot than be freezing, but I'm one of those people who can never get warm.

Hey, it could be worse. We could be talking about how much Game of Thrones disappointed us (again) and how it is impossible to watch it now, a total slog, knowing where it ends up. Disappointing and overrated indeed.

Your home should be sanctuary, which is to say that we hope that nothing bad ever happens once we move in. Unfortunately, life doesn't always work out that way, and sometimes things happen that unnerve the hell out of us.

Is there anything more creepy than being alone at home... only to get the feeling that you're not alone at all? What if you were being watched?! It's the stuff of nightmares, isn't it? And I haven't even touched on the possibility of paranormal activity yet...

People Describe The Moment They Realized They've Been Doing Something Wrong For Years

It can be very embarrassing when you pronounce words wrong. Let's face it, the English language is super complicated, especially if you're learning it for the first time. You can't always trust yourself to pronounce things phonetically either because of all the different rules!

Recently, a relative pronounced the word "epitome" like "epi-tome." They were embarrassed when I corrected them. I told them that it wasn't a big deal, though they did note that they love that word, have used it for a long time, and that no one corrected them until that moment...

Ouch.

"What's an 'oh sh*t' moment where you realised you've been doing something the wrong way for years?"
