People kind of suck sometimes. Here are some examples of annoying things people say, all of which I have heard recently.
1. “I don’t read.”
This is usually accompanies by a cooler-than-thou sneer, like reading is some inexcusable offense. I can completely understand not having time to read regularly or preferring other hobbies, but you don’t read? Ever? I can’t and won’t believe that. You’re dismissing one of the greatest activities of all-time, probably to appear cooler than you actually are. It actually just makes you look unintelligent and boring.
2. “A woman’s place is in the home.”
Don’t even get me started on this one. A woman’s place is wherever she chooses to be. If that place is in the home, great. If it isn’t, that’s great too. It’s her choice, not yours.
3. “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.”
Have you had pizza? Ice cream? Freshly baked chocolate chip cookies? The list of foods that taste much better than skinny feels goes on and on. I won’t be convinced otherwise.
4. “I’ve been told I look like [insert sexy celebrity here]”
I’m willing to bet no one has ever told you this. And you probably don’t look like him/her either.
5. “Just because there’s a goalie doesn’t mean you can’t score.”
Anyone ready and willing to screw up someone else’s relationship deserves a slap. I will lose all respect for you, if I had any to begin with.
6. “That’s so gay/retarded”
It’s 2014. How do people still not realize how offensive comments like these are?
7. “People aren’t born gay; it’s a choice.”
Yes, because someone would willingly choose a life that brings persecution, discrimination, and judgment. Seems very logical to me.
8. “I’m taking time off to find myself.”
You’re unemployed and/or don’t know what to do with your life. Admitting it is the first step.
9. “I don’t like Harry Potter.”
TAKE IT BACK. You clearly either don’t have a soul or you’re lying to intentionally piss me off. Either way, you’re on my shit list.
10. “My favorite band is Nickelback.”
