People Share The Small Things That They Silently Judge Others For

We all judge each other, it's human nature. We need to be able to make quick judgements: "is it safe to cross the street here?", "is this person telling the truth or trying to rip me off?", etc.


But there are certain things that we judge each over that some might consider petty. Clothing style, hairstyle, accent, all are quite superficial, really.

Reddit user Dent15 asked:

What are some small things that you silently judge people on?

A lot of these are less petty and more practical, if you ask me.

There's already enough noise without adding to it.

If someone gives their child an iPad in a public place with the volume turned all the way up, I immediately hate them.

Everyone secretly judges them. 

When they don't care that their kids are running amok in a restaurant.

It's not a contest. 

If they have to one up everything. I hate that.

Along those lines, when I tell a story and the other person says, “That's nothing" before proceeding to tell their story. Look, just because you have a story you THINK is better doesn't mean what I said is nothing. I hate that phrase so much.

Keep it to yourself. 

Talking on speaker phone in a public place. I didn't ask to hear about your cousin's ingrown toenail.

Nobody is right all the time. 

If people can admit it when they're wrong. It baffles me how many people I've met that are so afraid of saying "yeah I guess I messed up on that".

Also, how people react when someone says they were wrong. When someone openly admits that they were wrong, there's no need to go into a full "I told you so" celebration.

Why would you do this?

Lack of awareness about phone usage really puts salt in my pepper grinder.

Someone almost rode their bike into me recently because they were trying to cycle and text at the same time.

There's no such thing as too many. 

I'm going to interpret small as "petty."

The count and content of the stickers on your car.

It only takes a few seconds to tidy.

How they leave a table when at a restaurant

Edit: be kind to your waitress/waiter/host etc. It's easy and the right thing to do.

It's right there! 

People who just leave their carts in the parking lot instead of walking the four feet to the designated area to put it back so it doesn't go slamming into someone's car.

It takes 2 seconds to check. 

Misspelling people's names when they had the opportunity to check (eg in email- the person's name is right there!). It shows carelessness.

When in doubt.... be a Karen! LOL

We've all seen them and at times we may have been one A KAREN! You know who that is.... a difficult person, that's describing it politely. Karen's make scenes and do all that is necessary to get anything and everything their way. Working in any form of a service job, Karens are your worst nightmare.

Redditor u/externalodyssey wanted to hear from everybody about their Karen encounters by asking.... Managers of Reddit - what is a Karen experience like ? What was you worst experience ?
