Women Share The Creepiest Thing A Guy Has Ever Done That He Thought Was Romantic.

It happens all the time individuals doing something creepy under the guise of romanticism.

Here, woman reveal the creepiest thing a guy has ever done when he thought he was being romantic.



1. Said he wanted to buy me a necklace with his name on it so other guys would know I was his and not talk to me. Apparently, it's romantic to treat women like property. I got outta there real fast.

2. I gave a guy a ride home once and went inside so I could use his bathroom before I headed home myself. When I came out of the bathroom he was on the couch with his pants to his knees smoking one of those skinny cigars.

He was just like " 'Sup... "

I left. Quickly.

3. Broke into my house left an engagement ring on my bed and a note saying how he'd masturbated in my sheets because they smelled like me. This was all after I broke up with him...

4. I was flirting with a guy in a club, we talked all night and finally kissed. He was awesome and really hot. Then he told me to close my eyes and he put a silver necklace with a cross around my neck. I looked at it and said: "uhm, thanks...?" He smiled and said: "It belonged to my first girlfriend. She died in a house fire when I was 15."

5. It was my first job out of college, and I went to a lot of networking events. I met a guy who was older (grey hair, balding) and had maybe a 15 minute conversation with him about very mundane topics. We exchanged business cards and moved on to the next contact.

Next day at work I get a huge bouquet of flowers. This thing easily cost over $100. They arrived right as I was leaving for a meeting with a co-worker so I didn't really have time to think about them. Get back and I have two messages from the guy asking if I have received the flowers. As I'm listening to the messages, he calls again (story continued on the next page...).

Continue onto the next page for more!

I share an office with my 30 something male boss, so personal phone calls are already awkward. The flower sender is asking if I got the flowers, what did I think, and telling all these other things he thought about sending but he wasn't sure what I liked. When he finally stops talking, I thank him and tell him the flowers were a little much, which causes him to tell me that it meant nothing. He was just trying to be friendly.

When I got off the phone my boss (who could only hear my side of the conversations) said "I hope that guy doesn't know where you live".

6. Gave me stolen underwear and cheap jewellery a couple of hours after we'd met.

This guy also asked me when he could put a baby in me and confessed his love for me.

One of the weirdest nights of my life.

7. The morning after our first date, sent me a picture of a guy going down on a woman, and said his first thought this morning was doing that to me. Later the same day he texted me saying he was falling in love with me... and that was the end of the shortest relationship I've ever had.

8. He was a budding animator who had a crush on me. As a romantic gesture to win me over, he created an anthropomorphic "sexy" squirrel character based on me and drew several very detailed and graphic pin up type pictures of it and uploaded them to his online portfolio. He was a pretty skilled artist and the face of the character was noticeably me. He said it was how he saw me in his fantasies.

9. My teacher asked me out on the last day of class. We were both in our mid 20s. We went out and after a few drinks he admitted to jerking off to my Facebook pictures. I ended up spending the night anyway and the next day he texted me how nice it was to find my hair in the shower.

10. Met me on the train. Says he's related to a rugby player (the resemblance is there so I believe him) and tries to ask me out thinking I'd be into a rugby players' cousins. Half an hour later, when I'm waiting for my friend to get money out, he tries to (story continued on the next page...).

Continue onto the next page for more!

Half an hour later, when I'm waiting for my friend to get money out, he tries to surprise me with a "quick kiss" (covered my mouth and also tried to slip in the tongue), then goes for the boob grab, holding me close to him with a really strong arm. My friend grabbed him and kneed him in the stomach when I finally got his gross mouth off me, yelling for help.

So messed up.

11. "You are so hot. I jerked off to you twice last night."

He thought that was the equivalent of whispering sweet nothings in my ear.

12. A guy I worked with sent me flowers to my home address. When I asked how he got my address he told me he stole my payslip.

13. I'd been flirting with this guy on Facebook for a few weeks after meeting a party. At some unrelated point during this time I created an event where a few of my friends were invited to dinner.

Some things came up and we decided via text to change the location a few hours prior. However, apparently he'd been stalking the event, and halfway through entrees at this new place one of my friends gets a call from him saying he's at the restaurant and looking for us.

I wasn't into him very much after that.

14. A guy showed up on Halloween dressed in a costume to match mine. I was Cruella DeVille, he showed up as a 6'6" dalmation puppy, complete with a leash. He had stalked me through my friends to find out what my costume was going to be.

I had met the guy like once before. I was so mad that I didn't even bother to get to know the guy. He may have had a chance if he wasn't so damn creepy.

picklelady

15. When I was like 16, a 25 year old tried to get with me. We knew each other through barbershop quartet programs and since it is a small group of people, most of them add each other on Facebook and talk often.

Well, this guy added me and immediately began to flirt with me. He'd always call me cutie or tell me how sexy I looked in pictures followed by ';D'. I had a boyfriend at the time so I tried to respond by talking about my boyfriend rather than making a scene since I was still involved in the barbershop community.

Anyway, one day he decided to tell me how my boyfriend didn't seem worthy of me (story continued on the next page...).

Continue onto the next page for more!

He then followed it up with the fact that he masturbated to pictures of me. When I didn't respond he said "we all do it, I'm just a little lonely."

...I blocked him after that.

16. Two weeks after meeting, he wanted to get my name tatted on him. I noped out real quick.

Erin_woah

17. I had an ex boyfriend who began stalking me after I broke up with him. He'd wait outside for me, park his truck behind my car so I couldn't leave, leave creepy notes on my car, stand outside my basement door looking in, etc... All because he said I loved him and we belonged together, but I just didn't know it yet. Ughhh lasted almost a year after we broke up until I had to almost get the cops involved.

18. This isn't creepy, but it was very uncomfortable.

So I was seeing this guy years ago and one night we were in bed, we'd never actually had sex although I'd been trying to get in his pants for weeks but he'd never go all the way with me, he'd just sleep over in my bed.

Anyway we were spooning one night and he starts singing to me with the most awkward sincerity:

You're.... sooo.. beauuutifulll.

Aaand I loovvveee you... yeeeaaah, aaand I lOOVEEE youuuoouuuOOouuu.. sooooooOOooooooooooooooo beau-tifull.

That's about all I can remember. I buried my head into a pillow and froze, trying not to laugh and pretending I was asleep. It was a really weird moment, I never tried to have sex with him after that.

19. Ex-boyfriend thought sending me a leopard print thong in the mail was charming, but he didn't want to be a creep, so he send it anonymously... and I opened it in front of my parents.

Jesteress

20. When I started seeing my now husband, I had a friend who was very upset he hadn't asked me out first. He kept asking me to go out with him instead, that he'd make a much better partner. I should have shut it down harder but I was 18 and the more insistent he got the more scared I was. I was worried I was blowing it out of proportion (story continued on the next page...).


Continue onto the next page for more!

He kept coming into my work to 'talk' when he knew I couldn't leave or be rude to him as a customer. It escalated until he texted me in the middle of the night to tell me he'd slit his wrists because I wouldn't go out with him and was smearing it all over the walls, why was I hurting him so much, couldn't I see he was the one for me? To him it was a grand declaration of love. I was terrified.

I stopped replying at all after that, I thought he would come after me. I had to get my managers and security involved to stop him coming in to see me and a few months later he moved away and got another girl pregnant. I should have gone to the police but it honestly didn't occur to me at the time, I thought they'd just dismiss it as no big deal.

21. Take pictures of me sleeping. Its not sweet, its creepy.

22. I was interstate staying with my parents for a few weeks, and my boyfriend showed up at the front door one day at 7AM in the morning. He had flown over from our city without telling me.

It bothered me because I was reallllly busy with some applications for those few days he came, and if he had checked with me I would have told him not to come. His presence was a real interference with my work.

I also got the impression that he came over in order to check up on me. Creepy.

tickertape_disaster

23. He left a bag with a live snake in it tied to my car antenna while it was parked in my high schools parking lot.

I got a restraining order.

kevinsorboisagod

24. Followed me to the bathroom at a party because he "just wanted to help me." When I confronted him outside in front of the party host he said "I think I'm in love with you".

I had just met him that night.

25. I fell asleep in an arm chair in the corner of a public study area in college. This guy I had classes with saw me, pulled up a chair and sat 3 feet away from me watching me sleep while eating a wrap.

I had one of those monkey instinct "hey wake up someone's there!" wake ups. He said, "I didn't want to wake you but you weren't safe asleep so I watched you." (story continued on the same page...)

Dude. I don't know you. Don't presume I need you to protect me. Its the hub of our tiny campus. Bisecting the two halves of the school with the cafe to the north and the administration to the south. There are cameras all up in this bitch and I woke up when you stared at me for too long. You aren't the only person in this room who would object to an aggressor. I can see our classmates right now watching your dumb grins on their dumb faces. You're no white knight. You're just absorbing all the details of my face so you can accurately whack off to them later.

And sure enough after I say out loud, "oh thats not necessary blah blah blah" he asks me out and I say, "I'm flattered but I'm not interested and I'm in a committed relationship" and he says, "Hey, just because there's a goalie doesn't mean you can't score."

It was at this exact point I became what he might refer to as a frigid b---h.

Holy crap man.

26. An ex wrote to me in blood once. No joke. Very creepy.

zorrodefuego

27. A few years back, I had my ex watch my cat while I went to visit family.

While I was gone he took it upon himself to REARANGE MY ENTIRE HOUSE, to a way that he thought "flowed" better.

He thought he was being really sweet, and I can see why he thought that, but we hadn't been dating that long and I liked my house set up the way it was. If I had wanted my furniture arranged differently I would have done it myself.

What really got me though, is that he rearranged it the way he wanted it to look even though it was not his house, he didn't ask or take into account how I, the owner of said house, used and utilized the space. He was treating my house as his house and basically moved in while I was gone. I broke up with him a month later.

[deleted]

28. I'm a cocktail waitress and for a few months we had this really weird, creepy bar back. He was just really socially awkward, and I would've been friendly to him but he took any display of kindness as an opening to hit on me. I asked one of the other waitresses to make sure he knew I was married with a child, and when she told him he said he knew. On his birthday, he was all kinds of giddy. Brought in a disposable camera (this was like 2014, mind you), and just wanted to take pictures with people all night. I took a super awkward photo with him to be polite. Totally forgot about it. Anyway, cut to like two weeks later and he gifts me with a DVD. Just a random movie he liked, I think it was filmed in the city or something, I don't know. He told me to open the case and boom, there was the awkward pic of the two of us sitting inside. It was so weird. He kept trying to friend me on Facebook too. Oh, and he also gave a picture to one of the bartenders. Hers was hidden in a box of chocolates and he used a baby version of her name as his own personal nickname for her.

I avoided him like the plague and tipped him the minimum no matter how much I made. He eventually got fired for being such a creepy dude.

29. He was the security guard for the mall I worked in. He used to just stand... in front of my store. Didn't really stare but would look in from time to time.

One night a customer started trying to open our gates after we had just closed, I already finished closing my tills so I couldn't process another sale until the next morning. This guy LOSES it and starts getting violent with the door trying to get inside. Creepy security guard to the rescue! He dragged the customer out of the mall (turns out he got arrested later that evening). Security guard swoops in and says "That was scary. Are you okay? Would you like to go for a walk, and grab a coffee with me? Take your mind off things?"

Smooth as crap. And he was decently attractive. Didn't give off creepy mofo vibes. I agreed.

We spent all evening walking downtown. We went to a record store where he picked up a few things, and I pointed out a cd that had a pretty cover. I only knew one song from it. Then we went passed a store, and I pointed out a pretty prom dress in the window. I thought it was nice. Didn't think anything of it, just commenting.

He walks me home, gives me a kiss on the cheek, and that was that. He was a gentleman, and was very sweet. Didn't expect anything from me. I had a wonderful time and was excited for date 2.

The next day he wasnt working, but as I was leaving my store a random guy came up and said "This is from your biggest fan!" And handed me the mxpx cd from the night before. Odd, but a cute gesture. It wasn't expensive. Maybe he was just trying to make me smile? Anyway I thanked the stranger, and went home. The day after that I still didn't see him, and took my lunch break. When I returned my manager asked me if I was still in highschool, because there was a prom dress that had been delivered to me while I was out.

My heart sunk. I was creeped out. The dress was like, $300 minimum. I felt sick. I had to find him and tell him to reel it back, he was freaking me out.

On my way home that night, I see him standing under the streetlight in the distance in front of my flat. Hes holding roses and wearing a suit. "Oh god no..." I thought, but at least now I can talk to him.

Before I can even open my mouth, he hands me roses, gets down on one knee, and asks me to marry him.

I obviously say no, and start to explain myself, when he interrupts me... "What do you mean no?! Didn't you accept my gifts? What are you, a gold digging W---E??" Aaaaaand thats when I ran into my building and never looked back.

I quit my job the next day and moved 2 months later. Never saw him again.

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

Giphy

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.

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.

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

Giphy

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.

Personally, I hope she was messing with me cause I lost a little faith in humanity that day.

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.

Stars Like Our Sun

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

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.

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.

Telekinesis

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.
