What is a thing that is universally hated by all people?
By - turrxxr
Stickers that peel off easily 80% of the way, but leave behind 20% that are bonded to the surface of the object for life.
Going through Alzheimer's/dementia. Has to be one of the most sad ways to go
I had sinus infections year after year until age 16 when I had an operation to straighten my nasal septum (the bit in the middle between your two nostrils). When they took off the bandages it was like nothing I'd ever felt before or since, but it changed my life for the better.
Wait... are you telling me that fixing the inside of my nose would help? I've had a chronic sinus infection going for a decade now! Coincidentally about a year before it started I had my nose broken and now due to all the nose-diving for covid tests, I was told my septum is crooked to one side...
Deviated septum club, unite! My friend also had surgery to correct his deviated septum and said it was life-changing. I am very tempted, but I think my case is minor enough that I can just struggle through the occasional sinus headaches.
Just because it’s minor doesn’t mean you have to struggle if you don’t want to!
Nothing makes you appreciate the ability to breathe out of both nostrils until you've had a cold.
I have really terrible chronic allergies. My nose is ALWAYS partially stuffed, and it’s worst when I’m trying to sleep. I also frequently wake up with dry mouth & a burning throat. Last night I woke up at like 5 am and I started crying because my throat hurt so bad
Same. I'm only able to breathe out of one nostril most days, some days it's neither. But, usually ONE day per year they **both** become clear & that day is freaking MAGICAL.
Having a hair in your mouth and it being impossible to locate
I can agree with this. I just had a root canal last month. The pain before the surgery was excruciating.
I just had a couple teeth pulled because they were beyond saving. The pain for the two weeks before was hell
Especially when you can feel the exact single nerve lining all way to your brain throbbing like a motherfucker
Its worst pain I ever had in my life!!!! Aaaagh
Accidentally breathing water through your nose
flipside of accidentally drinking water/liquid wrong and it comes out the nose
When you wake up in the middle of the night and you want to go back to sleep but you have to pee
And then after you pee, you can’t go back to sleep and you lie there wide awake 🥲
Even worse is waking up like 20 minutes before your alarm and not being able to go back to sleep because you have to pee.
And then the swollen part juts out and is easier to bite again by accident.
The first time hurts. The second is even worse.
Biting your tongue, even worse
Or your lip
And then you somehow keep on biting the same spot over and over.
Not somehow. Evolutionary disadvantage. When we bite out lip the part bitten swells, increasing the likelyhood of it happening again.
Happening to me everyday for the past three days :(
Burning your tongue, even worse
I'll take burning my tongue over the roof of my mouth any day. I swear, I get a blister right behind my front teeth as soon as it happens.
When your pocket or belt loop snags on the door handle.
Especially when you’re already in a hurry and upset about it.
Or if you’re already in a bad mood and nothing is going right that day
Or if you’re in the middle of an argument
Instant fury. If it’s been a bad day, thats enough to set me off
This happened to me at work a couple of years ago. I’m a flight attendant and was standing by the cockpit talking to the captain (who I just met for the first time) just general preflight info. So i was like alright great blah blah was gonna leave him to his devices as I went and did my thing. Tried to walk away, but the doorknob handle for the bathroom, that’s next to the cockpit door, completely trapped me and got inside of my belt loop on the back of me. I could not get myself free. It was so awkward for this pilot to try and come over and dislodge my ass from this door handle omg I was melting
Ha ha, can just picture this! Also when your pocket catches on the doorknob
Same category= standing up from your desk while your plugged in Headset on
Of all the things I proportionally over-react to, this is the highest. Like, it's not a huge deal. But I absolutely want to lose my shit whenever it happens.
The blue balls of the face
Those ads that autoplay on the side of webpages, especially when they automatically have sound
Even worse, the ones that autoplay in the center of the screen.
With fake X buttons.
They have *fake* X buttons?!
I've gotten so pissed off over not being able to X out of the fucking things, and I just assumed it was my internet or phone screen not responding... I have literally shut the device all the way off before because I couldn't figure out how to make the add go away.
Those ads that open another tab if you try to close them.
Or pages that do the same thing no matter where you click.
being sleepy, getting into bed, then being awake
I've been having this problem for about a week now. I'm tired all day but wide awake once I go to bed and I fucking hate it.
Edit: thanks for the suggestions, everyone! I know a lot of you are having the same problem as I do and it sucks. I'll definitely try some of the tips you gave me
Prepare for more sleep advice that work for me
Try stretching (focused on the back muscles)
Focus on breathing (Avoid inner monologue of breath in breath out and just the actual action)
If it takes more than 30 minutes to fall asleep, get up and do something else. This help get rid of some frustration of not going to sleep.
I do apologize if you did not want tips on sleeping and just wanted to vent
Edit: For smokers, alcoholics, stoners, etc. avoid substance abuse if you need to get up. Go make a sandwich or distract yourself from not being able to sleep.
Edit 2: Try and have a designated time range like between 9pm to 10 pm that you need to get ready for and go to bed. If you missed it the time deadline, then drop what you are doing and go to bed. You will NOT miss losing hours of gaming or social media nor are you gonna remember most of what happened.
Love this "avoid inner monologue/focus on the action itself" advice. I will try practicing that. Thanks!
Or when you’re super tired and fall asleep for literally 5 minutes and something wakes you up and your brain is like “oh, good morning!”
Going upstairs and forgetting why you went up there then suddenly remembering as soon as you've sat back down in the living room
Trying to click x on an ad but actually clicking on the ad and it redirects you to the play store
Those should be illegal
Come on, Europe! Ban it already!
The x’s be really small sometimes too so my fat finger misses it and ends up clicking on the ad itself which takes me to another site. They do this on purpose 😡
Or even worse I've had a couple with a fake x in the upper corner and the real one in the bottom
Cold spots in food after heating it up for four minutes.
Similarly, a sudden crunch in food that's supposed to be soft.
Nothing like a chunk of bone in the middle of my Sonic burger.
Yes, this will literally ruin an entire meal for me and its just, “no more meat for me for 2 days :)”
I just give up eating at that point
Lava spots in the same dish that ruin the entire experience only to be completely contrasted by the still cold spots. Nothing else makes you feel like you're coming down with a virus than an improperly warmed dish.
Nothing like that cold center of lasagna
Water running down your sleeve when washing dishes, then standing on the water with socks on
IDK what the problem is but every damn time I hand wash dishes I wind up with my shirt soaked and water all over the counters. I'm just going to blame my kitchen sink.
Being told “We need to talk later”
Why did you give me the notification? Now I’m gonna be riddled with anxiety until we talk. You could’ve just said nothing.
And then you find out it’s about something trivial/unimportant.
*"You’ve had me stressing all day for THAT?"*
My wife did that recently and it was “I think we need a new living room rug.”
"I don't feel like things are going to work out"....."with this table"
I think we should see other people….
About our car insurance
Holy shit, I accidentally started a sentence with "I don't feel like things are going to work out...." "...between me and my new job." I'm pretty sure I accidentally gave my boyfriend a heart attack
Reply with: "Yes. We REALLY need to talk. It is high time now for you to know this." to give the person 10x more anxiety back than they have given you.
The good ol’ anxiety reverse card
Hit back with "Yes we do"
Now everyone is stressed.
When you turn your neck a weird way and it starts hurting
When you sneeze and strain a back muscle.
Woohoo! I found my people!
Yes, the 25+-year-olds
That weird burning feeling too, where you don't know if it'll last a few minutes or you're going to wake up tomorrow unable to move your neck.
The two ads on YouTube that are long enough to be annoying, but aren’t long enough to be skipped.
5 second's ads
Lately, they had the two ads be 15 seconds and neither are skippable
click on the bottom left exclamation mark or question mark, and report the ad, it lets you skip it instantly.
Edit: Thank you to everyone for the awards!
Best life hack I’ve seen in years. Thank you
No longer works :(
it works on most ads, it normally wont work if the ad is by google, apple, or other large affiliated brands.
When you think the hot drink has cooled enough to drink, but then you find out you were wrong, so wrong.
That moment when something's stuck in between your teeth and your tongue can locate it just fine, but your fingers or a toothpick can't...
Or the itch that's right in the middle of your upper back but too far down to reach it by yourself.
Or that itch that is somehow exactly between the back of your throat, inside your ear, and behind your eye.
I once accidentally trolled my girlfriend because of this. I told her, "I have an itch I can't scratch." She looked at me weird, so I continued, "It's in my ear, and no matter what I do it doesn't go away." (Said while rapidly pushing and pulling my ear.)
That was the day I learned the phrase "an itch I can't scratch" is a sex reference.
She thought you wanted a dick in your ear? That's like basic level kinks bro. Live your best life!
Maybe she likes aural sex.
Do you have allergic rhinitis, my friend?
I do! It's awful. The inside of my body should not have permission to itch.
Wait this happens to me I thought this happened to everyone
That's why there is a messed-up door frame at my parents house. It's the best spot to go bear-style and scratch your back by rubbing it on that edge. We all did it so much that we messed up the paint/edge.
Sitting here imagining you and your family went through the house testing every door frame and it's making me giggle.
I call that spot “the Bermuda Triangle”: something is happening there but I can’t reach nor see it.
I’m so glad I can reach my entire back.
Also you just made it itch, damn you.
A singing bear taught me that you can just scratch against a tree or a post.
This is weird to me. There is no part of my back I can’t scratch.
I had one of those for like a week. It was part of a popcorn kernel and almost no amount of flossing was dislodging it. Finally got the fucker out and it was better than sex.
The life story before the recipe on recipe websites.
I'm not kidding, I looked up a recipe for a certain blackberry centered dish and it had literally no recipe in it. It was a one paragraph story about how she used to pick blackberries when she was a kid, mind you the title was a recipe and it was located on a recipe website.
Getting asked to get up for something the moment you sat down.
Or when your other half calls you and says "come here !". I say why and they say "just come here" .
Its nearly always something they could've come to you to say
90% of living with your SO is one of you yelling "What?" from another room.
what's the other 10%?
Yelling "Yes??" from the other room.
I thought it was "What do you want for dinner"?
That's my mom's favorite line to use lol. Calls my dad midway thru the day and gets mad when he says he doesn't know.
Happens almost every time
Yelling something at just a low enough volume to not quite be heard from the other room
This is why I text my husband when he's in the other room. So he doesn't yell across the house or up the stairs.
Or the moment you put headphones on and they see you do it. Then try to talk to you and get mad that your ignoring them but they ignored you most of the day.
This but with a book. Why is it that the very second I start reading my previously silent sweetie decides to tell me all his stories?
Little does he know I've already adapted and if he's too silent or stuck in a reddit rabbithole I know cracking open a book will bring out his chatty side. Bua Ha Ha!
Mini stones that get inside your shoes
No, mini stones are the main ingredient in ministone soup.
No they mean rock babies
Wearing wet socks.
I legitimately hate my entire existence if I get caught in the rain and get my shoes and socks wet.
A long time ago there was a post on r/unpopularopinion about how the OP always liked to shower with their socks on. One of the few correct usages of that sub.
Hopefully the police caught the bastard 🙏🏿
When you have just got dressed and are about to put your shoes on and head out the door. But first you nip into the bathroom to wash your hands and bam! Puddle left over from your shower here to ruin your day.
**Come on, Flanders. There's got to be something you hate.**
**What about mosquito bites?**
**Mm-mmm. Sure are fun to scratch.**
Stupid sexy Flanders
Imagine being bitten by a bug that you can barely see and then having an illness that needs lifelong treatment or just kills you, honestly terrifying
They should be banned from earth. Vote for me and I will ban mosquitoes.
Run for office on the platform of eradicating mosquitos and getting rid of daylight savings time and you have my vote.
low speed internet
I live in rural Iowa and our only option is satellite internet, which is TERRIBLE. I never knew how much I took a solid Internet connection for granted.
Say that to my internet provider.
You're not "stuck in" traffic. You _**are**_ traffic.
'Hey honey where are you..? We are all waiting for you..'
'I will be late 30 min hun.."
'I am traffic'
I am not in traffic, Skyler. I am the traffic.
I am the ONE WHO HONKS!
Everyone else is the traffic. I'm the only intelligent person on the road. Lol
"Boss, I'm gonna be late! I'm traffic!" just doesn't work as well...
I say that depends on the cause of the traffic. Rush hour downtown? You are traffic. Long haul down the interstate and you can see that one car in the fast lane is refusing to go any faster than the car next to it and a line is building up behind them and your ETA keeps climbing because you’re going under the speed limit? Stuck in traffic.
Reading this deeply triggered me. When that happens I literally want to burn the world down. While laughing maniacally. I move back and forth from the boonies to the city every 6 months so I only have to deal with it half the year but man. There is nothing worse.
When you’re showering and the shower curtain moves and sticks to your body.
Ugh, when you see it slowly billowing towards you so you slap it away, only for it to slowly creep towards you again a moment later.
Spray the side of the tub with the curtain. The actual tub. Then push the curtain to the tub. It sticks. No more being touched in the middle of your showers.
This only works with a tub and shower curtain.
Job Interviews. The whole job hunting process in general.
Just applied to Build-a-Bear of all places and one of the questions on the quiz you have to take is:
Have you ever thought about stealing from an employer, and then decided not to act upon those urges?
Like, no matter how you answer you’re telling them you’ve at least CONSIDERED stealing from work.
Have you ever had coffee or PCP?
Yes or no
Does your father know you're gay?
Yes / No
Flies in the house. Makes everyone slap-happy.
I'm home owner now, we bought our house during the summer. The cats want to go out, but change their mind. Then change their mind and do want to go out. But now they want to go in.
Anyway, I called my grandma and told her "now I understand what you meant when you would yell at us for holding the door open because all the flies were coming in"
120trillion square acres on this planet and they're waiting for MY door to open.
The spot you get on your face that turns up just in time for your big night out, and its one of those that doesn't get a head on, it just sits there looking red and angry.
Spam calls about the warranties on vehicles.
"This is our last attempt..."
OH REALLY? PLEASE. LET IT BE YOUR LAST FUCKING ATTEMPT
Don't threaten me with a good time.
In the most exasperated voice: "We've been trying to reach you..."
When you rip a paper towel off and that little corner doesn’t come with and stays on the next paper towel.
I think we can all agree that we hate that.
It feels like such a defeat :(
You might consider a trigger-warning next time!
So close, yet so far...
YES! And the difficulty I have unsecuring the first piece of toilet paper from the roll. WHY so much glue? WHY? Each roll is already squoze in next to buddies in a plastic bag or paper roll - why all the security? Just gimme 3 lil spots of glue spaced out with an edge to grab onto and we'll be good.
Trying to unpeel a fresh roll of TP (often in dire circumstances) should not mean wrestling and tearing the first three feet apart with my fingernails hoping to get the layers right. Screw that noise.
Looking at your cell phone in bed and then dropping it on your face.
Corrupt Politicians getting away with crime
Ticks. Blood sucking little bastards, the food chain doesn't need you.
People coming into your room and then leaving the door open
“Due to higher than normal call volumes, your wait time may be longer than normal.” Bruh quit lying, you just refuse to properly staff your call center.
All spam calls and traffic tickets
Is there a way to get way from spam calls ? Like forever
I wish....I stopped answering my phone unless in contact list.
But what if the prince of Nigeria needs your help?
The prince of Nigeria can leave a message
It used to be Brussel sprouts but then people learned how to cook them.
Now I think it’s stubbing your toe
People that drive slowly in the fast lane and then don't switch lanes when able to.
Especially when they have room to move over but you don't.
Biting the inside of your mouth
When dunking a cookie in milk/coffee and it breaks. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHG!
Diarrhea. I hate that shit.
Stubbing your toe/banging your shin
Every curse word in the book comes out.
When you have that little bit of skin hanging off your finger that you end up ripping it off to your elbow
When your device is connected to the wifi but when you open a website and it says that you have no internet connection.
Edit: I've just realized my old comment was hard to understand so i tried to explain it better.
"we've been trying to reach you regarding your cars extended warranty."
I literally do advertising but the youtube ads are just so fucking annoying. I dunno, its probably the spell going back to the wizard
Sometimes I hate ads and sometimes I'm like "whoa when did they make Scream 4?"
If you are still getting ads for Scream 4, you might want to power down your Windows XP device for security reasons.
Spotify ads are psychotic
When you reply to your mom from upstairs and she proceeds to shout your name again and again.
Low battery on your phone
That line of dirt you cant sweep up in front of the dust pan
Bending your fingernail backwards
