14 People Discuss the Trends That Really Annoy Them

No doubt about it, trends seem to come and go in a hurry these days.

Music, fashion, and even the way people behave and carry themselves seem to be so influenced by popular culture…until it changes in a real hurry.

What trends really annoy you?

AskReddit users shared their thoughts.

1. Very weird.

“Public grieving. And berating those who don’t grieve publicly.

When Chadwick Boseman passed away, people were hounding his co-stars regarding their responses. When Malik B of The Roots passed away, Questlove actually found out by being spammed on Twitter by a bunch of strangers.

Imagine finding out one of your closest friends died, because random strangers wanted an immediate response from you.”

2. Give it a rest.

“How everything needs to be on social media.

I have to explicitly say to family members, please don’t put this on social media at family events etc… as an example trying to post that I had gotten engaged on Facebook before I’d even got to tell close family and friends who weren’t actually there.

Then getting defensive when you say ‘can you not post that please’?.”

3. Toxic.

“The celebration of bad attitudes, habits and toxic traits.

People would rather be praised for being a villain than to be obscure.

People would rather give praise to a villain than to spend a moment not entertained.”

4. A big one.

“Making young children into social media stars.

It’s fine to share pictures of your kids with friends, but aggressively documenting and marketing your family life for the public at large is creepy.”

5. Where did manners go?

“The lack of basic etiquette around invitations or even just making plans.

People feel absolutely free to not respond until the last minute while waiting for something better to come along, and they don’t think it’s rude to cancel last minute or just not show up without letting you know.”

6. Very dangerous.

“How quickly misinformation spreads through social media.

It’s seriously a dangerous thing in society and it’s pretty terrifying”

7. Rude.

“Recording strangers to see their reactions.

Especially idiots who do this in drive-thrus, as if those employees don’t already have to deal with enough moronic s**t on any given shift.”

8. So lame.

“Couples recording pranks on each other that are so painfully staged. It’s the same super popular trends that are reproduced.

Like do you really need to act so shocked the tenth time your girlfriend pretends to strip in front of the camera but actually has clothes underneath her towel? Are you really THAT shocked?

At this point I just block but I just can’t imagine people have that much time.”

9. Hustlin’.

“The notion that everybody needs to “hustle” and have a “side hustle.”

Like its ok that we are all supposed to be cheap-a** used car salesmen hawking our wares with no shame or sense of self-respect.”

10. The nerve…

“Social media influencers asking for free items unsolicited, then when of course they decline they threaten to (and in some cases do) leave bad reviews forcing the company to have to respond to false allegations for no reason.”

11. No escape.

“This is more work related, but it pi**es me off how there is now a work culture of always being reachable by email or text for whatever happens.

A lot of places expect you to be pretty much on call even when you’re not at the office anymore. I worked at an ad agency where days off sometimes didn’t even feel like that, because I would still be getting emails about things and was expected to be checking them.

There should be some level of balance between work and personal life and I feel like that is fading because it’s becoming more and more socially acceptable to adopt this type of culture.”

12. I know everything!

“Having an opinion about everything, even If you don’t actually know anything about the subject.

Opinions are fine but admit you’re not very well versed on the subject please!

No shame in saying hmm, I’m going to read up on this topic a bit more before making any definitive statements about it.”

13. They’re probably lying anyway.

“I’d really rather not hear about how much money everyone either has or pretends to have.

It’s just depressing even though I know I should ignore it and focus on myself.”

14. Advertising overload.

“Advertising slowly taking over every single aspect of our lives. I’m not really exaggerating when I say over 90% of the mail and phone calls I get are junk or scams.

Data we generate simply by being online being sold to the highest bidder without any real way of stopping it, which in turn fuels more ads. Went shopping more than once at a larger grocery store?

Congrats, you now get suspiciously tailored coupons mailed and emailed to you even though you don’t remember ever giving them your addresses, meaning it’s probably linked to your credit card and banking info.

The internet is great for knowledge if you look in the right places and allows discovery of fascinating things, but it does sometimes feel like we sold our souls to somebody for it.”
