People Reveal Which Things They Hate That Everyone Else Loves

Kapa65/Pixabay

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 u/Lil Crackerjack asked:

"What is something you hate that everyone loves?"

Bright sunny days.

Pardon me for not wanting my retinas seared by the nuclear hatred furnace you chipper jerks. "But without the sun we wouldn't be alive" yeah well without water you'd be dead but I don't hear you singing its praises when it rains so how about you clamp your face flaps together and go galivant merrily in the UV rays?

Boxed Mac n Cheese. I can't stand it. The smell alone is enough to make me gag. But home cooked, baked Mac n Cheese? Yum me up.

The rock/Kevin Hart movies. I just don't know why their movies get success, they are alright actors and the plot of the movies aren't that great.

Probably great human beings (aside from Kevin's cheating on SO). But they have mediocre movies.

And Kevin Hart is so overrated as a comedian. I'm sorry.

The show Friends. Those people are so awful to one another and to people around them, how could anyone stand them?

When I was in a high school film class, I finally saw Napoleon Dynamite. It had been hyped up for me for years by many people.

I was shocked. It was terrible! Virtually nothing in it was funny and the whole thing just felt really stupid.

Superhero movies. The Marvel movies are all the same, there's no charm anymore. The Warner Bros movies are a dumpster fire, consistently course correcting to adhere to whatever the latest fad is.

I liked the first two Raimi Spider-Mans, Dark Night, and Guardians of the Galaxy, but that's about it.

Maryjane. And herb culture. You're not cool because you're dependant on a drug to get you through the day. And it is a drug of dependence. It has caused death, not by overdose, but by people thinking they can do normal stuff on it and now have a slow reaction time.

"It's a plant, it's natural because it grows out if the ground!"

So do poppy seeds and they're used to make opioids. Just because it's natural doesn't mean it's good.

Parties

First you have to clean and set up everything. After the party is over you're stuck cleaning the aftermath ( if you're lucky you get volunteers). God forbid someone gets sick that's a whole other mess, and lastly if you go to someone's party I don't know I feel guilty at the end if I don't help clean.

Hot pockets. Frozen dude bro food in general really. I'm from Canada and our main equivalent to hot pockets are called pizza pops and the smell alone has made me throw up before (when I was a kid mind you)

I'm not sure if it's loved but more like something considered good social manners....

I moved to the US in 6th grade and for a long time I didn't know that when someone is eating food and offers you some, it is only a polite gesture and you are supposed to politely decline it unless it's like a family member or a good friend. I was in my late 20s when I found out that wasn't always the case. I was raised in a culture where meals were the center of a lot of important things and events, and when we offered food, it was always 100% sincere. It's wrong, fake, and I hate it even more.

Acting superior to others on the Internet. It seems like everyone I know spends their time being rude either to their friends, or generalised groups of strangers. I see people on social media do the same. It really is a lowly way to act, and I'm way too modest for that type of behaviour, so it's really irritating to see.

Geico commercials. They're so busy trying desperately to be "clever" that they don't tell me a damn thing about what their insurance covers, doesn't cover, etc.

If I'm going to buy insurance, I don't want to know how clever they think they are. I want to know what I can expect if I had an accident of some kind or suddenly had to deal with a bunch of medical bills for some reason.

Blue_Dog_Democracy

38. 

Any form of reality TV show involving people dealing with first world problems. Kardashians, 16 and pregnant, catfish, Ru Paul Drag race, bachelor/bachelorette, etc.

Too much drama. Every problem has simple solutions, but apparently no one can find them (mainly because they don't even try to find them). Sometimes the drama is started because that's what the producers wanted in order to get people to tune into the gossip.

Other people have problems way worse than yours, so stop complaining over spilled milk.

Pico de gallo.

I get it, not everyone thinks that raw tomato tastes like gutter water. But please make that an optional filling so I don't have to tear apart my burrito in vain just so I can have a few tomato-free bites.

Don't Stop Believin

People play it at weddings. It's about a one night stand! It's really not romantic imo and it's an objectively fine song but subjectively I hate it and shut down when it plays.

harrietgarriet

35. 

Automobiles. Yes, I know it sounds crazy but I don't like cars, I never were and probably never will. And people who has it are making things even worse. When you meet them they constantly talks about it: "oh, I need to fill up gas, oh, I have to take it to the shop, oh, it's so dirty I gotta wash her out, did you see my new salon, oh, gotta tell ya what baby I saw the other day (of course car, not a real baby or human at all). It's like they're talking bout their kids.


And the expenses are pretty much the same. I totally get the ones who use it to deliver things and have a garage and use it for specific important purpose but they're rare. Most of the drivers sleep in their car, they eat in their car, they do make up, dress up, probably other personal stuff that I don't wanna know. I never gonna get it. I love trains, walking and even buses, don't mind bicycles but cars never impressed me and they even annoys me. Retro cars are pretty but that's it.

Pop music. Most all of it is vulgar, oversexualized, crap appealing to the lowest common denominator that relies on strong beats to engage emotions rather than actual musical quality and skill in composition to appeal to the intellect.

33. 

Game of Thrones.

I tried at first but it didn't really work for me. Ended up hating it because everyone around just keep on going and going whenever it's showing. I'm glad it's over.

Black pepper. If it's used sparingly as an ingredient, that's cool. But putting it directly on food ruins the taste for me completely.

31.

Nutella and McDonald's. Nutella is too sweet for my taste and tastes more like a dessert. I can't stand McDonald's because I worked there for 7 years, the smell is off putting to me.

30. 

Sweet tea. I hate it. My go-to drink is unsweetened tea and imo that's what it should be. A little squeeze of lemon is fine if that's your taste. But sweet tea just tastes like sugarwater. Might as well go for a soda if you want something tastier.

29. 

Cats. Like the actual animal. I absolutely cannot stand them and will go out of my way to avoid them if it's possible. I won't harm one or do anything to endanger them, I just want nothing to do with them. They're lazy and selfish and their owners always seem to just let them do whatever the heck they want with very little discipline.

I also hate Wooloo.

I deeply hate the Mediterranean Coast and weather. I don't like at all the architecture as well. And I know it's well done, I just don't like it.

I also hate reggaeton, but i bet i'm not the only one, lol

AC:DC.

I hate how happy most of their songs sound. That's in spite of them writing in Mixolydian scales and singing about devil. Just don't like major-sounding music.

The Dark Knight.

Batman goes to Hong Kong for some reason. Also Christian Bale talks with the most hilariously silly Batman voice ever. It's so stupidly deep I was almost convinced he was taking the piss or trying to sabotage the film. I just can't take him seriously and I'm semi convinced it's actually a comedy.

Apple products. I have used them extensively and have had very little positive experiences including a Genius Bar employee telling teenaged me to just buy the new iTouch because an iTunes update bricked my year-old iPod. Also, my ex had a 2013 MacBook and that thing couldn't even get halfway through a 2.5hr movie without almost dying.

Soft corn tortillas.

If you want a soft shell you should choose flour - soft corn shells cling to the palate and insulate away the rest of the flavors. Corn shells are for frying into crunchy shells.

And don't give me lip about the shell shattering because you don't know how to construct a crunchy shell taco. Melt the cheese in the bottom and then even the most severe longitudinal crack won't disassemble your delicious crunchtastic creation.

Hummus.

Nope. I still find it disgusting.

Minecraft. I don't know i never got into it and once i did play it I'm like "What now?" It's so mind numbingly boring i can't understand what the hype was all about.

21. 

Japanese culture (as a Westerner). So many people love anime and manga and I'm totally baffled.

When that horrible arson attack happened recently, somebody shared some of the animators' "best work". I watched a few minutes of it, and it was a morose kid at a school where all the girls were highly sexualized--absurdly tall and skinny with tiny skirts.

I don't get how this is viewed credibly as anything but juvenile comic book shlock.

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?"

Have you ever found yourself in an argument so stupid and/or pointless that you were sure you were being punked? Like you keep looking away from the other person to check your surroundings for places Ashton Kutcher and a camera crew could come popping out of?

You're not the only one.

u/Anti-hollowkid asked: What is the dumbest argument you've ever been in?

Brace yourselves, folks. Some of these arguments are breathtakingly bonkers. The sheer number of people who are willing to argue with someone over provable facts and what that other person likes or doesn't like is just ... stunning. It's stunning, you guys. Just not in a good way.

I Know What I Like

My wife and I once argued over whether or not I liked mustard on my hot dog. I was for me liking mustard, she was against me liking mustard.

The argument lasted way longer that you could ever imagine it would.

A Stair Step

My brother and I argued if our staircase had 13 or 14 steps, based on an argument about if the floor of the second floor counts as a stair-step or not. We still have no solution.

Saturdays

My husband and I have this thing where we only say "I love you" on Saturdays. Every other day it's "I love you, but only on Saturdays." I don't know how it started, but it's been going for 11 years now.

We're both shiftworkers, so sometimes we have to stop and think what day it actually is. We had an argument recently over whether it was Saturday or not. I said it was Saturday, he said it was Friday. It was Monday.

Iraq

I remember when I was about 13 my parents had an hour-long shouting match that ended with them almost getting divorced. The issue? Whether or not the nation of Iraq has a coastline.

My mother arguing that Iraq had a coastline, while my stepdad argued that it did not. This was back in 2004, and they are still quite happily married to this day. That incident is something they look back on and laugh about, and both of them admit it was really a pretty stupid thing to argue over.

$40

With an ex:

"I owe you $80 for the bills of ours that you pay, and you owe me $40 for the bills of ours that I paid. Here's $40 in cash; we're even."

She did not understand this.

I literally had to go get another $40 out of the ATM, and hand the $80 to her. Then I had her hand me the $40 she owed me.

"Now how much do you have in your hand?"

She still didn't understand.

She somehow has a college degree.

Mini Wheats

When we were kids my brother and I got in a physical fight because he said I like mini wheats and I insisted I didn't. His argument was that I always sang the mini wheats song and I was deeply offended that he wasn't aware that it was just stuck in my head but I hated the cereal. I actually did like the cereal I'm not sure why I was arguing with him about it but I remember how genuinely angry I was.

Crayons

Giphy

I'll tell you about the only legal trouble I've ever been in, the fight that got me arrested. It started over whether we should return a box of crayons or not, and to this day I don't have any idea how it escalated to the point of the cops being called, but they were and I was the one taken in.

- CorrectionalChard

That's Unfair

My boyfriend insisted that when two people are in an argument and one makes a point so reasonable and logical the other one can't disagree with it - it's unfair. I tried, logically and reasonably, to explain several times why that is just winning the argument, proving your point thoroughly and is completely fair.

His answer was that I was being unfair.

- ShyAcorn

Pure Masochism

How the ch in masochism is pronounced. My friend caught me saying "masoKism" while he would say "masoSYism."

To be fair, he grew up speaking French, in which the ch in masochism is pronounced in "his" way. But he insisted that I was the wrong one here and that was just infuriating.

A Non-Standard Ruler? 

I worked for a company that made signs. We had a customer ask for signs that were 7mm wide that were to go on a door. Our sign makers figured the order meant inches because 7mm is pretty small, so made them 7 inches. I got a phone call from the customer who went mad at me for making them the wrong size. So I put a reorder through for 7 mm.

Argued with the sign makers over it but they eventually agreed to do it after I shown them the order in writing. I even had the customer put her complaint in writing, reiterating the size they wanted.

7mm signs went out and a day later I get the customer on the phone literally screaming at me.

Cue the dumb argument - we ended up having an argument over how big a millimetre is, and obviously everyone in the office were laughing, but this customer just wouldn't accept it and said we must be using a non-standard ruler to measure.

Ended up being escalating to the sales department manager who refused to issue a refund. We still don't know what they actually meant.

This Unusual Vegan Argument

Was in a pub with a few friends, and some random Dude dropped an ear, and somehow figured I'm vegan. Well, people like him are the reason I usually avoid mentioning it. He came up to me and insisted on starting a discussion about veganism. He claimed that by the end of it, I would be eating meat again.

He listed some stupid arguments, I told him I was not convinced and then tried to keep on drinking beer with my friends. He followed me, and wanted me to "try to convert him to a vegan." I stupidly listed some of my reasons thinking it would make him go away. He told me he still was not convinced, so I was like whatever. Again, I really just wanted to drink beer with my friends.

That dude followed me all night and expected me to try make him vegan. Doesn't matter what I said, and all the reasons that for me are obviously good enough to be vegan. He'd be just like "No, that doesn't convince me, therefore your argument and how you life is stupid."

Didn't matter how often I told him that I honestly don't care; 5 minutes later he would come up to me again "I'm still not vegan, so veganism is stupid, all your arguments were stupid, now give me a good reason to become vegan!" At one point, I was literally yelling at him that I don't give a single flying f about what he eats and why, that it's in no way my responsibility to "turn somebody vegan" and in no way his business what I eat.

Honestly, for that dude, I would have bought a whole ham, just to shove it up his stupid annoying face.

Monty Python

In college my roommate and I argued about a line in Monty Python & the Holy Grail. The scene with the Black Knight where the line "Alright, we'll call it a draw" is uttered. We argued about who said that line, whether it was King Arthur or the Black Knight.

It went on for hours longer than it should have because I was stubborn and refused to admit I was wrong.

Below Sea Level

I live on an island and when you go upland and you look out the sea looks like it's higher than or on the same level as the land. It's just a weird perspective thing because of the horizon. One day some kid says that it's because the island is under sea level.


I'm like wtf bro all of us would be with the fishes. He argues that no that's not true and if I just go upland I'll see. We then spend a good 5 minutes of my time arguing about it until I decided to leave this kid in his stupidity. He even said we shouldn't believe everything adults tell us and sometimes we need to think for ourselves.

This kid was older than me and was going to a good school. Lost my respect for him ever since then.

Tomash

Someone tried to fight with me over how to spell my name.

Now, my name is in a lot of languages with slightly different spellings. I would have accepted any of those spellings, but this one was just... Not even close. It didn't make any logical sense.


An analogous example is if my name was Thomas and someone was insisting it was spelled Tomash. And not just the name Thomas in general, but that me specifically, on my birth certificate, was named Tomash. I know how to spell my own name.

I swear to god, it went on for like an hour.

No Balloons For Grandma

My cousin and I argued over a balloon going to Heaven. We were at his big sisters prom send off and he let a balloon go and it went high into the sky.

He then said this balloon will go up past space and go to Heaven and reach grandma (God rest her soul). And I was like no it's not and it's probably not even gonna reach space. Releasing balloons is terrible for the environment and kills/harms so much wildlife.

He got really mad and defensive and started telling me to google it and do my research and I'm like I don't have to google it you idiot. He was mad at me for a good week.

Spontaneous Dolphin Existence

How dolphins reproduced. It took me a few solid minutes of explaining to her that dolphins have reproductive organs and that they did not just pop into existence. The argument began with her saying she wanted to work with sea creatures.

Andre 2000?

Giphy

I'm late, but I saw this question and instantly remembered that I was booted from a Facebook group because I called someone out on a lie that was not only bull, but extremely pointless. She was friends with the moderator and they made the case that my argument over such a little lie was more of a problem than the lie itself (though they didn't refer to it as a lie.)


The woman said that she used to babysit for Andre 3000 and that his name was Andre 2000 - but he changed it after the year 2000 had passed. This was so easily disproven it was ridiculous. Their debut album came out in 1994 and he was already going by Andre 3000 at that time.

The argument wasn't a huge long drawn out thing, but the fact that either of us were on Facebook at separate times meant that the responses were over a long period of time so this argument lasted a few days.

It was stupid.

I was arguing with my grandpa about stars he didn't believe that there are other stars like our sun. Basically he thought there is only the sun, the moon and the earth.

Richard Nixon

I have a degree in history. I mostly focused on nationalism. Wrote a 50 page paper on it and Richard Nixon with around 50 100 sources. Looked at micro film for hours on end. Part of the paper focused on how Nixon being chair of the house committee of Unamerican Activities was used as a powerful weapon to use against political enemies. It also inspired Joe McCarthy. Have had people tell me I was wrong and Nixon was never elected to a position besides the president and Joe McCarthy came before Nixon. I stopped trying to talk history to people.


I also know quite a bit about the history of the Balkans its amazing how many Serbs refuse to believe Tito did anything wrong.

Wrote 100 page paper on nationalism in Israel. Its frustrating to talk about because for some reason a lot of people think Palestinian firing rockets randomly into Israel is ok but if Israel retaliates the people get up in arms over a targeted air strike that kills 3 people.

Binder Clips

I got into an argument with a co-worker over how we were attaching two pages of a letter together: small binder clips or paper clips.

He felt that paper clips would leave a "dent" in the paper when removed, but binder clips won't. He refused to staple them together. I felt that binder clips would also leave a "dent", so we might as well just use the paper clips.

It ended with him saying: "Do what you want [me], I don't care!" and storming off.

Jewish

Once got accused of faking being Jewish. Why? I have no clue. We argued over the course of a month, any time I'd bring it up and she heard about it, she'd begin going after me for "faking it".

My mother's side is ethnically Jewish. Grandparents were practicing.

Nutella

Giphy

3 friends and I once got into an argument about how to pronounce Nutella. It lasted for about 3-4 months. It was hilarious how serious we took it, it'd get heated but never for real serious.

I think someone even called the company that made it to check, or that may have been for the Cheetos company. We were really bored in high school.

Lingerie Boxes

Late to the party, but there it is.

I'm a manager at a small store. We're only 4 working there, so my team and I grew very close and we joke around a lot. Once during a slow shift, my employee and I had an argument because we were looking at the lingerie boxes, and I thought that two specific boxes had the same woman on it, but she was 100% positive they weren't the same person.

Looking back, I don't know why it was such a big deal to us at the time, but we even called another employee who lives across the street to come and tell us what the heck was up with that. Turns out I was right, and she was pretty salty about it. It was a great night.

Wicked Witch of the West

I almost got into an argument with an old girlfriend over Glinda the good witch from Oz. She insisted that Glinda was manipulating Dorothy to assassinate the Wicked Witch of the West and convince the Wizard to leave to create a political void she could fill.

I conceded the issue when I heard the whole premise because I thought it was too damn stupid to get worked up over.

Keep Your Hands to Yourself

Just the other day I legit got in an argument with my co-workers on why I don't like my butt being grabbed by anyone (I'm a guy). Seriously.

They went on about "I don't mind it. Mike and I do it all the time and we don't care." Yeah, that's nice dude, but I'm not you, and there's something called "Keep your hands to yourself" (which was taught to a good portion of us growing up). Just like how Karen wouldn't like it if I touched her boobs or her grabbing your crotch or frankly ANY area you wouldn't like being grabbed, keep away. In general, you should not be touching me in any areas after I've told you not to several times before.

So unless you're sleeping me or dating me, keep your damn hands off my toosh.

My best friend and I argued over whether or not telekinesis was possible. Her argument was that humans don't yet know what the human brain at 100% usage was capable of, and that telekinesis was inside the possibilities.

I said the brain does use 100%, just at different times.

We didn't speak to each other for four days.

Ghosts

How dolphins reproduced and whether or not ghost existed (back to back with the same person). It took me a few solid minutes of explaining to her that dolphins have reproductive organs and that they did not just pop into existence (the argument began with her saying she wanted to work with sea creatures).


How it shifted to the existence of ghosts is a solid and reasonable question to ask (I don't remember why). I had to then proceed to tell her that ghost hunting TV shows do not constitute as undeniable evidence.

Personally, I hope she was messing with me cause I lost a little faith in humanity that day. This was in high school SO... hopefully she was kidding.

Dogs and Chocolate

Giphy

I told this stupid woman that chocolate is toxic to dogs. She went on to tell me how a little bit will just make them hyper and then they will calm down. I told her to google it. Her and her bf shut right up. Now they have a kid. Good luck, Jeremy and Andrea. morons.

I should also add that this argument started because Jeremy was giving his tiny dog chocolate and I told him it was toxic.

Is water wet?

My roommate and I have a recurring argument over whether or not water is wet l, and whether or not a person is considered wet underwater.

For the record, it is no to both questions.

Mission Trip

A kid a church telling me about the mission trip I went on. Not only was I not on that trip, but I had never been on any mission trip. We were good friends, so it's not like he would've mistaken someone else for me.

He insisted I was there as if an entire week long trip would just fall out of my memory. He even had stories of things we'd done together. I'm not sure if he thought I was lying, joking, stupid, or crazy, but I was pretty sure he was some combination thereof.

Dragon Tales

One time I got into a shouting match with my mom and little brother in the car. The issue? The names of the two-headed dragon from the PBS kids afternoon show Dragon Tales. I swore it was Zack and Macie.

It was actually Zak and Wheezie. I don't even remember why we were yelling about it.

Green Or Yellow?

When I was about 15 or so my mother and I spent about 20-30 minutes arguing about the color of a shirt. We agreed it was blue/green, but to me it was just a shade more blue, while to her it was just a bit more green.

Turns out, your eyeballs yellow as you age and hers were 24 years yellower than mine, so I think that skewed her color vision.

Stars In Their Multitude

Giphy

I once got in an argument over whether or not a line from the song "Stars" in Les Mis says "...but mine is the way of the lord" or "mine is the way of the law".

I didn't even really care what he thought but he was so adamant and cocky that it got me heated. By the end of it we were shouting at each other and I had to apologize, which I think is what he wanted the whole time.

Colorblind

My brother is colorblind. And he CONSTANTLY tries to correct me on what color things are.

"Hey could you hand me that red _____?" "that's orange" "no, it's red" "orange" "YOU CANT EVEN KNOW".

It is the base of our most common and heated arguments.

Hot Water

About five years ago, my girlfriend (now wife) once had a very intense argument about whether or not hot water cleaned things better than cold water.

She genuinely believed that water temperature didn't matter. This is someone who has not one, but two masters degrees.

We argued for something like 2 hours, and we seriously almost broke up over the whole thing.

Biology Class

I had an argument with a girl IN THE MIDDLE OF A BIOLOGY CLASS in high school about how humans are not mammals. She thought a human was a human and we are not mammals because "mammals are animals and humans are not animals"

I tried explaining to her the difference between reptiles and mammals and how humans fall under the mammal category to try and educate her... but she just wouldn't listen.

I still have no idea why the BIOLOGY teacher did not get involved...

Solid Or Liquid?

Some classmates and I got into a heated debate as to whether or not the human body could count as a soup, salad, or sandwich. The teacher got mad at us, but hey! All we were doing was watching a movie.

For the record, my logic lays with soup- Liquid contained within a solid, at a hot temperature.
