I will never step foot in a nightclub again as long as I live…
There, I said it.
No, I’m not talking about seeing a band or anything, I mean the kind of club where the techno is thumpin’, people are packed in like sardines, and drinks cost $25…
Because some people think those places are normal, but I find them to be TERRIFYING.
And now let’s hear from AskReddit users about things that are considered that they find terrifying.
“Diversity classes where you are forced to ‘Play Act’ being a r**ist and your coworkers have to figure out what is wrong.”
2. Totally creepy.
“Family channels. Imagine having to live your entire life on camera, with little to no privacy without being able to consent for it.
Also to my knowledge there are no current laws that protect child influencers income like child actors have. If your content can’t exist without your child, it’s their job, not yours.”
“Advertising. Especially target advertising.
The constant attempt to manipulate you psychologically to make you believe you need something that’s only a want.
“As a kid, the father of one of my friends used to chase all of us around and tickle us. The vibe was so creepy, all of us kids just instinctively knew to stay the f**k away from him.
When I met my husband he told me that he’s super-sensitive to tickling certain areas and it’s not fun or funny to him. I promised to never tickle him and I think it’s one of the best ideas I’ve had.
Most people don’t really want to be tickled. They laugh because it’s a natural reaction, but more often than not, they aren’t enjoying themselves.”
5. Hell no.
“Open door policies in families.
My in-laws just walk in whenever they want and I h**e it.”
“People making instagrams for their babies and making captions as if the baby were writing it.”
7. Overdoing it.
“Every company creating an ecosystem requiring my home address and credit card and my birthday just to listen to some music or use some software.
Not a shred of my identity is unsold at this point.”
8. Over the top.
“People who share everything on social media.
Some girl from my high school had a kid, and I’ve basically watched her grow up for the last 3 years.
Almost every day she posts 5+ photos of her and her kid doing whatever they did that day. It just feels weird to watch some kid I’ve never even met grow up.”
“Caregivers putting their Alzheimer’s patients on social media so people will praise you hem for being patient.
It’s just not respectful to the person with Alzheimer’s. You are stripping them of whatever dignity they have left. It’s becoming more of a trend and it’s so disturbing.”
“Instagram accounts with nothing but selfies.
Hundreds and hundreds of selfies….
It totally creeps me out.”
11. Please back up.
“People standing next to or behind you when they can just wait or give you a bit more space.
I h**e going to airports or any other public line and trying to leave space in front of me and the person behind me just shuffles closer trying to get me to move.
Trust me, you pushing me to move forwards isn’t going to make the line move any faster. It just makes it more congested and it’s weird.”
12. Think about it…
“I think it’s weird that most couches don’t come with washable cushion covers.
Everyone finds that normal, but they would think it’s weird if someone just slept on a bare mattress without ever putting a sheet on it. When in reality it’s exactly the same thing.
I bought a couch with cushion covers you can take off and put in the washing machine for that reason.”
What’s considered normal but creeps you out?
