Is there anything (could be a habit, an object or an event) that bothers you, or that you find disturbing even though nobody else seems to care? If so, what is it?
When the only word people use for emphasis is "super"
Two things actually:
1. When someone says “I seen that”
2. When someone says “graduate high school”
Trump is destroying all American values.
The sound of silverware or change clanging together. It actually physically makes my teeth hurt and I get goosebumps. That’s my equivalent of nails on a chalkboard.
Also, the sound of other people clipping their nails. I actually have to leave the room.
There are many smells I can't stand that others don't seem to even notice.
Oh my goodness, same! My grandpa has always said I have a nose better than a bloodhound!
There are so many smells a lot of people find pleasant that absolutely turn my stomach! (i.e.- baby powder, lavender, sage, rosemary, mulch, etc.) and he’s always sworn I could smell rain coming before the radar could detect it (the smell of fresh rain is my favorite smell in the world!) if I say it’s going to rain, my family always takes me seriously.
Yes, there's a word for that rain smell.
I know! I use it all the time and get that “wtf is this girl on?” look every single time! But that smell just soothes my soul. I can’t explain it!
Nobody cares, is tough. My biggest pet peeves revolve around left lane drivers and people not tipping.
Sirens. I live one block from a main street and around the corner from a fire station. Sirens, frequently, all day long when I'm at home. Arrrgghh.
Honestly, you are right and definitely won this regardless how much we disagree.
Right about imperialism being bad?
We just look at I️t in different eyes because we are opposite sides of the spectrum.
I mean, I'd run to your side if I believed that your side had anything to offer anti-imperialist struggle. Even if the odd one out (you) recognizes how the global economic system exploits Africans, Asians, and Latin Americans first and foremost, I haven't seen any solutions. My point is, it's not a question of "sides of the spectrum." I'm looking at the spectrum from an entirely different perspective. I'm a white westerner, and that has shaped by consciousness, but I do my best to listen to the experiences of third world peoples in an effort to see the struggle through their eyes, and coming to real conclusions.
People who chew gum loudly
Having my hair cut
This list goes on and on
I absolutely hate having my hair cut!
Although I don’t like making the trip and how it looks until it grows out, I actually love getting mine cut once I’m there. It’s weird how divisive something so simple is.
Yes....I hate gum chewing. The sound of people whistling.
Gum chewing can send me into a literal rage.
In this case though, it’s the touching. I don’t like people near me and I don’t like to be touched. You pretty much have to be touched to get a haircut.
Environmental effect of wind driven power generation.
Bird kills immediately come to mind.
I hate when people leave carts in the parking lot. The store provides you a cart. You used it. Be respectful of their property and put it back. Think about people’s cars. They don’t want dings.
Maybe solve it like I've seen in Europe: the carts are chained to each other, to get one, insert a Euro into the chain mechanism which releases the cart; you get it back on re-attaching.
A US quarter is less of an incentive except that the homeless will be glad to return carts and retrieve it.
I’ve only seen Aldi’s have the quarter system. Everyone else has corrals. People are lazy and leave them everywhere. I try to bring one in with me and then put it away when I’m done.
Aldi is a German company if I remember correctly. The quarter system is a huge cost saving move for them.
I actually like the idea. It keeps the carts put away.
That’s a great idea. The Aldis by me don’t do that, but I️ wish everyone did. I️t drives me nuts that people won’t put the cart back into the section. For gods sake it’s at most a 10 second walk from where you parked.
I think both Aldi and Lidl, German grocery chains, introduce this in America.
That’s good. It’s an easy way to prevent lazy dickheads from leaving carts everywhere or stealing them
To clarify: things like spitting on the ground don't count since it does bother quite a few people.
My answer is yes:
I find headless (armless, legless) display dummies disturbing. Cruel. Horror show.
