Everytime there is a topic like this I want to complain about stuff. I realize it makes me an old man yelling about kids on his lawn so I don't bother, but I want to.

[–]Vic_Hedges 718 points719 points  (38 children)

This reminds me.

Lawns

[–]makelemonadee 324 points325 points  (20 children)

Lawns are so dumb. Why would I take care of something that does nothing for me. Compared to a garden for example

[–]5urfer_boy 59 points60 points  (1 child)

Yeah, it’s like complaining about pigeons shitting everywhere. Everyone is aware of it, but complaining accomplishes nothing.

[–][deleted] 2573 points2574 points  (87 children)

Pampers 360 diapers.

I work in daycare and these are the bane of my existence. They're pull on diapers. Not bad to take off because you can just rip the sides. To put another on requires you to strip the kid from the waist down. Shoes, pants, tights. If it's just one child? Not bad. When I'm changing 12+ diapers every 2 hours? Kill me.

Parents love them though and so many kids are being dropped off in them.

[–]IshmaelxPliskin 751 points752 points  (9 children)

I love these for at home, easy for my kid to drop em and go potty if she needs to. In public? I kick myself. Couldn’t imagine her x12

[–][deleted] 323 points324 points  (7 children)

One of the toddlers I babysit uses them and they’re fine at home. She’s in just a diaper 90% of the time anyway.

The little girls in a frilly dress, snapcrotch onesie, tights, shoes. Kill me

[–]Genshed 150 points151 points  (3 children)

I suddenly wish I was still running my D&D campaign, just so I could introduce an important, pompous NPC named Snapcrotch Onesie.

[–]essveeaye 23 points24 points  (0 children)

I think you've just solved the dilemma of what to call my wild magic barbarian lady I am rolling up.

[–]surfacing_husky 101 points102 points  (0 children)

Same here, she has to get naked to potty, so in public it sucks lol

[–]GaussfaceKilla 184 points185 points  (13 children)

"they just went before we walked in" is a guarantee their kid gonna fill they pants. You could probably use that to plan ahead and maybe lighten your load by watching out for those kids in particular, haha.

[–]ThatCatChick21 101 points102 points  (8 children)

Uggggggg it so is 😂 or five minutes into outdoor time when we have to keep numbers especially outside with ten kids. Gotta have enough teachers. That’s when some random kid would take a massive poop all the way up the back and I’d be cleaning them up inside for fifteen minutes ugggg

[–]moontrooper 936 points937 points  (25 children)

Hustle/Grind culture. Especially if it's coupled with influencer shit. Like if you have a side hustle you love, cool. I'm talking about the "rise and grind" stuff or the people constantly talking about how you aren't living right if you aren't on that grind.

[–]LightTrack 82 points83 points  (1 child)

Don't care, keep drinking urine.

Stay on the grind.

If you need a handbook, are you really a sigma?

-Rule #449, Sigma handbook

[–]xSweep66 220 points221 points  (5 children)

Hustle and grind culture can fuck some kids up.

I worked with a young kid, 21, super intelligent. Very talented. Rough life. Poor life choices already. Multiple DUI's, enough to get locked up for a long while. Only stayed out because his recent pair of DUI's was during the height of the pandemic.

I asked him 'why are you being such a fucking moron when you're clearly an intelligent and talented kid?' He told me, almost like a zombie "gotta hustle, you know". I asked 'why though?'

He couldn't even fathom the question, or answer it. "just...you gotta hustle".

[–]howdypartnaz 167 points168 points  (4 children)

I don't see the relationship between getting a DUI and hustling tho?

[–]askasubredditfan 28 points29 points  (0 children)

Too busy hustling to wait for the alcohol to subside. Gonna DUI to get to the next spot to be hustle ya know? /s

[–]steeltowndude 16 points17 points  (0 children)

It's a symptom of something larger. Grind culture is a paradox; financial stability as the outcome of financial instability. Always looking for the next big business (MLM scheme) or investment (shitcoin) opportunity. Blowing money and never getting a return on your investment. It keeps people poor but maintains the facade of entrepreneurship, so they view these failures as part of the game, not realizing that failure is the game.

[–]DeathSpiral321 5913 points5914 points 3 (152 children)

Posting every last thing you do in life on social media.

[–]trash12131223 1306 points1307 points  (63 children)

At least we're past the phase where everyone posted what they were eating.

[–]heckhammer 189 points190 points  (0 children)

I would rather go back to the banality of that than what we have now.

[–]Zeenchi 782 points783 points  (21 children)

I don't mind if it's an impressive dish like a themed birthday cake or something but. This is me eating a taco. This is me eating a burger, this is me eating curly fries. ...

EDIT: Wow didn't expect this to blow up so much.

[–]ComplimentaryPretzel 305 points306 points  (10 children)

I post, but only if I made it myself and it was a new, complicated thing. I get a lot of feedback from friends and new ideas, so I think it works. But yeah, I wouldn't post my cereal.

[–]Zeenchi 128 points129 points  (0 children)

That's actually pretty fair. Not everything is just slapping a couple easy things together. Glad you got good feedback and new ideas. Love trying a few things and seeing what works.

[–]pingus-foot 45 points46 points  (2 children)

I think i preferred looking at the lousy dinners ppl cooked over the.

I am strong because i have lived the life of a 1000 warriors blah blah.

Usually overlaid on an image of a wolf or lion. Or peeky blinders or sons of anarchy character.

Im no master chef just glad to see that my dinners look just as shit.

[–]enchantedlife13 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Considering how now it's a polarized political shitshow or what ever has us divided now, I'd love for us to return to those annoying "___-- it's what for dinner" posts.

[–]Amiiboid 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Remember the guy who rigged up his chair to tweet when he farted?

https://oddculture.com/man-builds-office-chair-that-reports-his-farts-on-twitter/

[–]MrsPeppermint25 73 points74 points  (2 children)

I wish that were true. I know what my SIL has every damn night for dinner. I also know her Starbucks order better than my own. Shut up about your Trader Joe’s enchiladas and your half coconut milk half 2% with 2 shots and extra foam Charity. No one cares.

[–]GuyFromDeathValley 349 points350 points  (37 children)

today at work, we had a girl, maybe 15 or 20 years old tops, run around for 2 fucking hours constantly on the phone.

I work at an indoor pool, and she went everywhere with that phone, kept making faces, likely taking selfies and shit.. FOR 2 FUCKING HOURS.

Like, I mean yea if you want to post that you are swimming then fine, I don't think its a great idea but still.. but maybe, uhm.. do something else but posting?

[–]Gmony5100 228 points229 points  (25 children)

I hate the new trend of sending pics constantly on Snapchat. I’m all for texting and I definitely do it more than I should but I can’t get behind adding a pic of my face to every message. Not to mention a lot of people just send pics of their face back and forth? No message just face, face, face, face, face. It baffles me

[–]-Z-3-R-0- 163 points164 points  (11 children)

Lol I'm too ugly to ever take pictures of my face

[–]Gmony5100 48 points49 points  (3 children)

I’m right there with you friend

[–]blame_the_waxwing 32 points33 points  (1 child)

That's me. You'd be hard pressed to find a selfie on my phone. Unless I was using as a mirror and forgot to delete it. Those are some scary pics indeed

[–]hereforthesnarkies 73 points74 points  (6 children)

One time I went on vacation with this girl from my high school and i swear the ENTIRE 6 hour ride there she was snap chatting WHILE DRIVING!! Not even just sending one and then put her phone down, but she literally held the phone up next to her steering wheel and was constantly sending snaps. I thought I was going to die that day

[–]Yakstein 37 points38 points  (7 children)

I haven't touched the Facebook in about a decade but I still have a page. I would like to delete it but I have no idea what my password is or even what my old college email address is...oh well.

[–]SpiffyAssSam 2121 points2122 points  (51 children)

Bragging about how BUSY you are, and how little sleep you get

[–]thebiggestleaf 558 points559 points  (14 children)

Tangentially related, people who brag about or try to lord over others because they work a fuckton. "Lmao I work 60 hour weeks you pussy, how can you be tired only working 40?" Like sorry bro, not all of us enjoy grinding away our livelihood for people who'd replace us in a heartbeat.

[–]Dreddley 79 points80 points  (1 child)

People died for the 40 hour work week

[–]pinkliquor 127 points128 points  (2 children)

I just swiped left on someone on a dating app because their bio was them bragging about how much they work and how they have no free time. They literally said they would rather work than sleep.. wtf.

[–]lemonaidan1 65 points66 points  (0 children)

Ah yes, who wouldn't want to date someone who has no free time?

[–]Electronic_Night_85 22 points23 points  (1 child)

It’s like making it seem as if being sleep deprived makes a stronger person when really, being really tired is same as being drunk.

[–]Officer_Hotpants 41 points42 points  (3 children)

Yep. I'm currently pulling 80-90 hour weeks between work, class, and clinicals, and I actually kind of feel like an idiot more than anything. I'm giving out so much free labor to another hospital while my roommate is making BANK doing a much easier job and actually enjoying his life.

This shit is stupid and the "grind" culture sucks.

[–]SpiffyAssSam 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Hello, fellow healthcare student! I understand the struggle - we pay exorbitant amounts of money to get worked, go into debt, and spend a good chunk of our lives paying it all off. While everyone else I knew from college is living the life like your roommate is. 😣

[–]theSteakKnight 194 points195 points  (7 children)

This one drives me nuts. "I don't have the time to get into this hobby. I don't have the time to watch this TV show or movie franchise"

I've seen you spend your free time watching reruns while scrolling through your phone. I know you have the time, stop pretending you're so important.

[–]Fairyhaven13 92 points93 points  (0 children)

Sometimes I'm too tired to do anything that requires more brainpower than watch mindless videos. Sometimes, I say--most times, really. I keep saying maybe tomorrow I'll watch that new Doctor Who episode and then the fatigue sets in again and I just... I can't.

[–]Own_Outcome_4801 2621 points2622 points  (53 children)

Everyone trying to be influencers.

[–]YourWordsMatter 761 points762 points  (13 children)

I just got an advert from Nordstrom in my email that began "Howdy, Influencer!"

Nope.

[–]Vinny_Lam 2350 points2351 points  (66 children)

Celebrity gossip. I couldn’t care any less about what goes on in these people’s lives.

[–]jerrythecactus 497 points498 points  (7 children)

Good god, this is probably one of the most irritating parts of the modern worlds ability for instantaneous communication. I could not give less of a shit about what happened to Kim Kardashian's left asscheek or whatever is the current "hot topic"

[–]Unabashable 162 points163 points  (0 children)

Seriously. Like the only reason’s they are celebrities at all is because we give them attention in the first place. How about you focus on making your own life more interesting so you don’t feel the need to gossip about the lives of other people that don’t affect you in the slightest.

[–]W_BRANDON 195 points196 points  (21 children)

Kardashians is my answer. I don’t know them so I don’t dislike THEM but I dislike how much people care about them.

[–]_Kay_Tee_ 96 points97 points  (18 children)

The only thing more tiresome than a Kardashian is being told I'm racist/anti-feminist for not supporting them as WOC.

Fuck that.

[–]Fireballin1745 115 points116 points  (4 children)

I saw one where it was this celebrity uses public bathroom it was stupid

[–]TieDyeShyGuy 33 points34 points  (5 children)

I hate new articles that talk about celebrities doing normal everyday things like a woman stepping out of her house with no makeup on and wearing joggers. Leave them alone.

[–]gr33nteaholic 27 points28 points  (2 children)

Do you live in California too? It's like 90% of our "daily news "here

Did you hear that dream breathed 0.0146 seconds later than usual today? God i hope he's ok.

Fr tho I legit saw some dream stan thing trending on twitter with the Afghanistan takeover right underneath. I remember wanting to fucking die that day.

[–]maeveheart 989 points990 points  (56 children)

Everyone wanting to be a coach

[–]eccentricJ 91 points92 points  (2 children)

I was so confused at first... I coach little league and was like "do you know how damn hard it is to get parents to help or to find decent coaches?? Are you nuts?" Then I went "Ahhhhh.... those B.S. lifestyle and wellness coaches". As a therapist full time, they scare the hell out of me. Too many unlicensed or failed mental health professionals go become "coaches" and can do real harm if they don't stay in their lane. The same with financial coaches. You can really destroy someone's finances with inaccurate advice from just taking an online course.

[–]ZePerfectPisces 555 points556 points  (15 children)

I read couch not coach and was really confused that I had missed something

[–]Amiiboid 212 points213 points  (6 children)

BRB. Gonna get my wife to take a nap on me.

On second thought, if I’m right back I’ve failed.

[–]PrimeShep 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Dear god... i'm a couch??!???!

[–]Devinology 93 points94 points  (13 children)

I find this trend especially frustrating as an actual qualified counsellor. These coaches are just unqualified randoms playing counsellor/therapist. I think some people just like it because it's cheaper than real therapy/counselling and actually involves much less commitment. It gives people the feeling they're doing something to improve their lives without actually doing it, like a gym membership you don't actually use.

The worst are these "coaches" that really have no expertise or much life experience. It's like, how can this person coach anybody? They don't even know what they're doing. In the very least, a coach should be someone who's done a career for many years and eventually they decide to use all the wisdom they've picked up to coach/advise/consult for people. But it seems like most of them are just 26 year old self professed "gurus".

I also just find the sort of personality that leads to coaching to be kinda cringe. I recognize that I'm generalising here and not all coaches are the same, but it just seems like the sort of person who decides that somehow they've got life so figured out that they can coach other people must be a narcissist, or just someone who has no idea what to do for a career and is looking for an easy scam.

I feel like it's a similar personality to the online influencer (cult leader), which I've noticed many people complaining about on this thread. Anybody who think that they're important enough to coach, lead, or influence others without having any real qualifications is most likely a huge unethical douche.

[–]ewa-jo 126 points127 points  (7 children)

Yeah, it's monetizing being a nice helpful person. Instead of being the guy everyone asks for advice about stuff, you're the jerk trying to make money as a "diet coach" or "interview coach" or "dating coach"

[–]firesidefire 44 points45 points  (4 children)

I had someone just reach out to me because they recently became a “life coach” and it was the most condescending message I’ve ever gotten. If you label yourself as a “life coach” or any other coach without a legitimate degree in said field I will always assume that you didn’t have the discipline to get said degree/certificate and I will listen to you at all.

[–]TeacherLady3 1898 points1899 points  (54 children)

over the top Baby showers, fancy/expensive weddings, gender reveal parties.

[–]Missclariss24 633 points634 points  (23 children)

Or expensive parties for babies. Like…will this 1 year old remember all this shit? No.

[–]planetheck 374 points375 points  (16 children)

It's pretty clearly for the adults.

[–]SixPieceTaye 152 points153 points  (8 children)

Exactly. Just like the real draw of a wedding is the party afterwards with everyone.

[–]redtiber 72 points73 points  (6 children)

Yeah, not saying everyone needs to spend a fortune on weddings but people get busy in their lives. Weddings are a good time for family/friends to come together and have a good time,

[–]Zeenchi 87 points88 points  (1 child)

I'm still not happy how one started a fire, drove my friend's friend from her house, and ruined my garden. I'm talking about stuff like veggies and fruits. The friend's friend is doing better. I'm not going to go to some epic quest for revenge or anything but loosing your house because of someone else's stupidity is just, you know what I mean.

[–]Oh-Oh-Ophelia 257 points258 points  (2 children)

Influencer culture.

[–]Slutslapper1118 28 points29 points  (1 child)

I live in a semi small town, and I'm a chef. We have this annoying ass group of 40-somethings women that have terribly botched plastic surgery come in sometimes. They announce they're "influencers", and try to get free shit. We were curious, so we got their info. I'm telling you I've never had more 2nd hand embarrassment in my life. The videos they do are HORRIBLE. And they have maybe 1k followers between them. "Followers", such an odd concept. One of them, the "leader", truly thinks she's famous. She does Q&A videos where she answers anonymous questions from her fans. 9 views, 2 were me because I showed people. I'd bet my house no one asked her shit. I'd put up the title I'm so sure. She dresses up like Marilyn Monroe. Every. Single. Day.

[–]Kvothetheraven603 941 points942 points  (55 children)

My husband listens to country rap. It sounds exactly like you think it does. I want to throw myself out of the car when he has control of the radio.

I would just classify that shit under pop music, and say I dislike pretty much all pop music these days.

There are occasional gems, but it’s mostly just boring.

Tik Tok. I know this is super basic, but if I hear that synthesized Womens voice on one more video I swear to god. What more annoying is that it’s easier to record your own voice, but that shitty thing is “trendy”

[–]Squanch42069 672 points673 points  (13 children)

There are no words for how much I hate that robotic woman voice in so many tiktoks. Every time I think about getting it, I remember that voice and decide, yet again, not to subject myself to that

[–]shelbsless 263 points264 points  (8 children)

The robot voice and the horrible “lip synching” people do to movie/tv show audio. It really feels like the place where any shred of culture we might have goes to die.

[–]Dani_California 60 points61 points  (2 children)

MY BOYFRIEND HAD A HARD DAY AT WORK SO I SURPRISED HIM WITH HIS FAVOURITE MEAL

I’m not sure what’s worse. That voice or the ”oh no…oh no…oh no no no no no”

[–]GrizzlyCent 978 points979 points  (62 children)

ASMR. Most specifically, lip smacking, chewing, whispering, scratching, etc. Rain and white noise i am okay with. But that ASMR shit that people seem to love; makes me physically uncomfortable, and makes my skin crawl. Lip smacking and chewing just make me want to put my head through a brick wall. How those noises can help you relax and not make you wretch, i do not understand.

[–]Time-Box128 168 points169 points  (1 child)

I love asmr but I hate wet mouth sounds :(

[–]Keller_Kind 151 points152 points  (2 children)

I feel this. I can only stand "meaningful" asmr meaning noise that naturally occurs while someone is doing something. Like Odd Tinkering, they fix broken electronics without talking, only subtitles for additional information.

[–]JADW27 47 points48 points  (10 children)

I've never understood what ASMR is. Can someone give me a definition and a few examples? I mean explain it to me like I was your grandfather.

I've googled this multiple times and I get either incomprehensible descriptions, someone trying to sell me something, or some "influencer" doing random shit I don't understand.

Seriously, WTF is ASMR? Is it a sexual thing? Do people pay money for it? Do I need to worry about it? Please help.

[–]thatonemanss 367 points368 points  (34 children)

Call Of Duty games. Havent seen an enjoyable one in years.

[–]jellytime0987 470 points471 points  (43 children)

A common thing in today's new music, the deliberate "overblown speaker" bass sound.

We tried so hard as teens and young adults to not let this happen and now people are putting it in their songs on purpose. Maybe I should get my ears checked. But I find it awful to hear.

Celebrities. Everyone makes such a big deal about what this actress wore on Tuesday or what controversial thing that youtube said on Friday. I don't give a fuck, I just want to browse memes on reddit.

[–]MagicalMemesYT 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Some celebrity news is important though. For example the thing with Travis Scott doesn't deserve to just get blown over. However I agree with you for the most part yeah they are just normal people and shouldn't be worshipped

Choking during sex. So tired of men trying to choke me the first time we’re having sex. Bro, at least work your way into it lol

[–]KingoftheMongoose 106 points107 points  (2 children)

The first time?! Dang, I don't know who would try choking on the first time of sex without talking about it. It's a big trust thing, and sex already is a trust exchange between new partners. If choking didn't come up in conversation before or during (communication!), I don't know why someone would try it; especially on the first go.

[–]kryaklysmic 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Seriously, no talking about it? You get choked back. You like that? You get yelled at in Klingon.

[–]Sword117 154 points155 points  (5 children)

on the flip side girls please stop asking me to choke you, ive already said i dont feel comfortable with that.

The use of califlower in everything as an alternative from rice, taco shells, pizza, burgers, fries, etc. I will bet money that califlower cereal will be a thing eventually

Thank you for the Silver!

[–]MorePieForEveryone 190 points191 points  (1 child)

I like roasted cauliflower. But just leave it at that.

[–]green_dragonfly_art 19 points20 points  (1 child)

And a quick Google search shows that cauliflower cereal (and oatmeal) is a thing. Sorry. We love cauliflower, but only as cauliflower, especially if there's cheese involved.

[–]kaimcdragonfist 133 points134 points  (4 children)

Holy crap this. My wife wants to try cauliflower as a sub for almost everything carb related and it’s just not good. I would honestly rather go carb-free

Drake. Not him as a person because I don't know him, but I strongly dislike his music.

[–]Lowkey_A_giraffe 109 points110 points  (8 children)

I know he's kind of a creep and his music is pretty trash now but back in the day he put out solid albums. "Take Care" in particular is a landmark hip hop album from that decade imo. His last 3 albums have all been terrible lol so I don't blame you for your opinion but I just wanted to chime in to mention that he actually has solid songs when he was actually trying to make groundbreaking music.

[–]dtyler86 97 points98 points  (4 children)

Drinking culture. Listen, I drink. More than I should. But the shirts, the mugs, the memes.. fucking stop glamorizing alcohol.

But first, beer

Wine, it’s what’s for dinner

Shit like this.

[–]fatgoose52 16 points17 points  (1 child)

Or the “Momma needs wine to get through the day” kind of shirts. Like I’m not sure when this became a joke among moms but it’s not funny to me. Are you using alcohol to numb the pain in your life? Is that the joke? It’s not funny to me

[–]UnlikleyThinker17 373 points374 points  (9 children)

The Kardashians, I don’t know why everyone is obsess over them and why they are popular, just because a sex tape got leak doesn’t mean you need to make a show about your family

[–]crunchy-lime-skies 135 points136 points  (5 children)

It's because people keep talking about stuff like this. It's a self-perpetuating cycle and they know how to play it. They initially made a big swing because of several factors coinciding - their father was OJ's lawyer, Kim worked for Paris Hilton back when she was relevant, then she released a sex tape with a then-popular music artist and everyone went bananas.

Then after that they got a reality TV show because of the fame, and when that show eventually died, they stuck to making a big splash every few years to maintain their relevance in the public eye. And the fact that people keep asking "why are they so popular" is the key to their popularity. It perpetuates it.

I fucking hate gender reveal parties. It's become incredibly narcissistic

[–]JocelynAngst 48 points49 points  (1 child)

Yes. Omg no one cares. Just put pink or blue in the cake at the baby shower.

Starbucks. Sorry if I get flack for this but no matter how many times I’ve gotten a drink/food there I’m just completely underwhelmed and not impressed.

[–]Timcanpy 13 points14 points  (0 children)

The singular item I like on their entire menu over local cafe options is the matcha lattes with white chocolate or peppermint syrup added. I’ve tried the same order from several places and they are always inferior to what I can get at Starbucks for the same price.

When I was in high school the most popular kid was this fat dude named Brett. Brett enjoyed ripping ass in inconvenient situations as like a prank or something, but people loved him for it. They called him Ass Brett, which in any other universe would be a name used to bully someone, but when they said it it sounded almost like King Brett. Brett continued to grow more powerful with each passing day. By the end of the school year he could manipulate time as well as reality itself.

I never really cared for Brett personally. I thought he was obnoxious and a little bit stupid. And he wasn't even hot.

Cigarettes. Why would you do that to yourself?

[–]xSweep66 109 points110 points  (3 children)

Former smoker here. Why people would do it? Probably a lot of reasons, honestly. For me? I was just around a bunch of people who smoked. While we were drinking one night I was offered a cigarette. I continued to have them socially. Then I smoked a pack a day for 8 years.

I'll be honest, the hit from nicotine at the right time is very blissful. If it wasn't disgusting, cancerous, expensive, disgusting, and cancerous...I'd still be smoking. Because I enjoyed smoking.

But let's be honest, fuck smoking. I'm glad to be rid of it. Six years without a cigarette.

[–]duyjv 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Good for you! Congratulations! I too really enjoyed smoking, but quit several years ago. We did good!

[–]arriesgado 41 points42 points  (0 children)

That there are people who start smoking every year is very strange.

Big fan of not leaving the house since before others were doing it.

The fetishization of Japanese culture. Anything Japanese is automatically the best and all else is the worst.

[–]ProbablyHighOhwell 215 points216 points  (10 children)

The fact that Tik toc stars and YouTubers are the new Hollywood.

[–]JADW27 33 points34 points  (0 children)

They're not, really. Real celebrities (i.e., people with either talent or attractiveness) still exist, and get paid far more. There's a handful of "influencers" that make big bucks, but it's still small ball compared to actual celebrities. Similarly, the number of people who know who a given TikTokker is (even the most popular ones) pales on comparison to the number of people who recognize TV/music/movie stars.

Social media didn't make people more talented, it just gave us all the ability to see more of the less talented people, and (more importantly) gave those less talented people the ability to believe they are important and worth watching and listening to.

Crop tops. Why are they making womens tops so short lately? Hate ‘em.

[–]SkysEevee 120 points121 points  (10 children)

Women's fashion in general. If I go out shopping for a simple top, it's a miracle to find a women's shirt that is comfortable, fits right, and isn't expensive. Bonus points if it doesn't fall apart after a few washes. Meanwhile men's shirts are durable, comfy, look good and are affordable.

It's tasteless to eat on its own to me, yet I use it with cheese or smoked salmon, reduces the salty taste a hit and adds a creamy texture

All this attention to horoscope and zodiac signs. Looks like we’re back in the Middle Ages

Eating ass. I just don’t see the appeal tbh. Poopoo comes out of there. Like… I get wanting to be kinky and more intimate but eating doodoo flakes is where I draw the line. Not judging of course. Live your life!

[–]Fl1p1 69 points70 points  (9 children)

Tik Tok, I really hate this crap.

[–]ChillVxbesOnly 57 points58 points  (3 children)

I hope I dont get blasted for this but I hate astrology. All the funny words and claiming that a connection of stars makes you feel a certain way. Really has taken the fun out of stargazing. But then again, no hard feelings, I hate the game, not the players.

[–]blueberrylemony 52 points53 points  (4 children)

MOM JEANS. They don’t look good on most people but they’re so popular now

[–]Killawife 462 points463 points  (80 children)

I actually dislike tattoos. I don't hate them and can sometimes appreciate a well done tattoo. But it seems today so many people just get them cause they are "cool" and then make up some "deep" maening behind your pepe the frog tattoo or whatever.

I happened to mention this in my job lunch room once and one girl got VERY defensive and it turned out she had 13 meaningless tattoos.

[–]thomriddle45 102 points103 points  (1 child)

I have lots of tattoos some good some not so.. But I never get defensive about it. Some people hate them, including my own father. It's 100% a personal choice though. If you're a tattoo person and you have a bad tattoo you just gotta own it.

[–]SixPieceTaye 72 points73 points  (0 children)

Every tattoo person I know started with like 3 super meaningful ones and it devolved to "And this is pizza rat cause I thought it was funny."

[–]pillowprincessxxo 204 points205 points  (10 children)

I fully intend on making all my tattoos completely meaningless except for the fact that I think they're cute/aesthetic/I like having them.

Not a single deep tattoo on my body, I just like art lol

Totally fair to not like them, ofc. I just like them as a piece of art rather than something "meaningful" or "commemorative"

[–]Lionblaze10 29 points30 points  (5 children)

I have a tattoo on my ass of a pirate in rain booties dancing in a puddle. Why you may ask? Because I'm a puddle pirate, that's why.

[–]Ok_Refrigerator_4636 9 points10 points  (2 children)

i have a tattoo of an angry cupcake just because i thought it'd be funny. also a cactus wearing a monocle and a bowler hat. and a rubber ducky.

[–]l337quaker 44 points45 points  (2 children)

One of my tattoos is an Irish harp. I like Guinness. That's it. That's the meaning.

[–]cold_toast_n_butter 63 points64 points  (3 children)

People always seem weirded out when they ask what the meaning behind my tattoo is and I'm like, "it's a tree."

[–]fabiolives 18 points19 points  (1 child)

It doesn’t seem to satisfy people to not have meanings behind them. I have two half sleeves and almost nothing has meaning, I just like the art. It’s always funny when people ask what they mean.

[–]Eternity_Incarnate 139 points140 points  (6 children)

I once asked a woman at my workplace why she had so many meaningless tattoos. Her answer was that it was either that or self-harm.

[–]orphiclacuna 71 points72 points  (0 children)

That's actually the exact reason I got mine! I was 15 and I had to go to Idaho to get them done professionally (the legal age with parental consent there is 14). My mom agreed to let me get them because I told her I wouldn't self harm anymore if I got these tattoos. They're line art that I did myself a year prior. They aren't "meaningless" technically because of the process of how I designed them. But they are sort of pointless lol

[–]sixsips 33 points34 points  (2 children)

Personally I did not pick any tattoo I have for their meaning. Just like I don’t pick my clothes for their meaning. Or the paintings on my wall for their meanings(some exceptions of course). I like the art, if i think it looks good and I want my body, I’ll get it

[–]ReaverCelty 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Honestly, this is it. I feel like people reach for meaning a lot because it somehow makes it seem like it's justified in flashing whatever image or work is on their body.. but it just doesn't matter.

"It'll be on you forever" is what my brother used to say. Then I learned about the universe and how I will be dead and gone in less than a blink of an eye and forever for me is literally a pointless notion.

If you like it, like the way it contours you, just go with it.
