Sometimes I just don’t get people, y’know? I’m a tolerant person (except for towards those that don’t know how to use their indicators), but there are certain things people like that I just do not get.
Some of the things I’ll list below I have tried to get behind, but no I just can’t do it plz forgive me. Other things just baffle me so much that I cannot conceive the idea of ever even trying to like/enjoy them, in which case they are probably just plain bad and if you like them you should just stop.
Just FYI, there’s a real mix here so they aren’t listed in any sort of order other than the order in which they spilled out of my brain. ENJOY!
The X Factor
OK, so I list this first because it’s what triggered me to write this post. I’m staying at my parents for the weekend, and they watch it every damn year even though it’s way way past it’s peak and they know it.
I had to leave the room when it was on because it’s basically become The Voice (but worse) and the singers just shriek and wail to try and get a ‘seat’. None of them are good. They should all go home.
I used to watch it, back in the day when the auditions were still entertaining. They had a good mix of comically bad and impressively good. But now? NAH MATE EVERYONE IS SHOCKING.
People seem to love it still though – or do they love to hate it? I don’t know I just want it to stop now.
So yes, I know I’m not exactly a minority for not being a fan of seafood but lots of people I know seem to love it. It’s one of those things that just makes my skin crawl – whether it’s fish, crustaceans or any form of seafood. Blergh.
When I was younger I used to eat Birds Eye fish fingers (because what British kid didn’t?!), but one day my body and brain was like NO MORE OF THIS THANKS. Since then, the mere idea of seafood makes my skin crawl.
Oooh Autumn, ooooh Pumpkin Spiced Latte. I get that other people like it and all, but I can’t really get behind it myself. Give me a caramel hot chocolate with a mountain of cream and marshmallows any day of the week. Well, in A/W because in the summer or spring that would just be unnecessarily indulgent.
Blog comment trolling
I’m debating whether to do another post on this because it got me so so riled up the other day. I was reading my favourite blog recently and went to leave a comment, making the mistake of reading other comments that had been left.
Here’s a little taster of the vileness that reached my eye sockets:
“The word gunt comes to mind!”.
SERIOUSLY? What the eff do people get out of being so incredibly cruel in a completely unjustifiable way? I can’t even.
These idiots clearly enjoy themselves as they just keep doing it – even if a blogger (who has every right to do so) decides to delete their comments, they keep on coming back and spreading more bile. GTFO mate.
For real y’all, I don’t get it. I cannot stand her music and really cannot fathom the mass appeal around ‘Queen Bey’. Is anyone able to explain it to me? Can it even be explained? Are my ears just not attuned to her style of music? Am I broken?
What even are these? Cropped wide leg trousers from the looks of it, but they also appear to be some mad phenomenon.
Admittedly, in the OOTD’s that I’ve seen on blogs, the blogger always looks great in them but when I picture myself wearing them it’s all sorts of wrong. I have stumpy short legs as it is and I just don’t see how they would suit me.
Maybe I’ll need to try them on before damning them too much but they just seem so *odd*.
Being professionally offended
If you’re unsure what it means to be professionally offended, it basically means you kick the hell off and flip a table over anything and everything that could be misconstrued as offensive, or that you feel you should be offended by even if it doesn’t effect you in any way shape or form.
That’s not to say you shouldn’t be offended by things that aren’t to do with you, it’s more that you really don’t need to be offended by absolutely everything.
Those that are professionally offended usually take to Twitter to vent in a long stream of tweets about how everyone else is wrong. I don’t see what people like about doing this? Oh yeah….attention.
No not that sort of soap, although about 99% of hand soaps flare up my dermatitis so I don’t exactly like them either.
No, I mean TV soaps. I can’t understand the appeal of watching people shouting at each other for up to an hour and Christmas being marked by a death of a character. Have some balls and kill off characters all the time like Game of Thrones – much more fun.
Soaps to me are way more ludicrous than a show starring dragons. Soaps are supposed to be grounded in reality, so why do they keep bringing back characters who died on screen? It’s not like Melisandre is knocking about waiting to do a Jon Snow.
What things people like are there that you just can’t?
