What do you think is the most hypocritical thing that you’ve ever seen in your whole life?
I’m talking about the thing that still makes you so angry that you feel like you’re seeing red…
Well, let’s see if they measure up with the stories that we’re about to read.
AskReddit users shared the most hypocritical things they’ve ever seen in their lives.
1. Happens a lot.
“I’ve noticed that pretty much any time someone uses the phrase “if you don’t like it, leave,” it only applies to other people.
That person will have no problem complaining endlessly and not leaving.”
“Someone from work just got back from a holiday visiting family who live out of the continent.
Went from “the nightclubs pretended to be closed but were open for anyone that knew. Had so much fun finally going out for a drink”
to “I can’t believe how bad COVID is here and so many people aren’t following the rules. It’s infuriating.””
3. A smart one!
“I know someone who won’t take any vaccines because she doesn’t want “the mercury and who knows whatever else is in there” in her body
Yet she eats fish and has unprotected s*x with strangers from the internet.”
4. People are clueless.
“My cousin came to visit my family on mother’s day last year.
She traveled across three states to see us, and then while she was here she was posting things on her Facebook about how inconsiderate and stupid it is to travel anywhere during that time.
5. You sure about that?
“A girl I go to school with claims she’s the poorest girl in the whole town, yet goes on and on about how each of her siblings got their own laptop and she recently got a car for her birthday.”
6. Bet you didn’t see that coming!
“People who quote the bible as their reason to hate gays, but have tattoos.
Tattoos are specifically prohibited by the direct word of God to Moses, it’s on the same page as the part about gays.”
“My ex would get mad at me for having male acquaintances. Not even friends really, just guys from school or work.
And policed my phone and my whole life. And I found out the f*cker was cheating on me.”
8. Losing my religion.
“My religion. Got into depression because of it (Don’t worry, I recovered in 2013 after I left it).
There was continual preaching of love and being nonjudgmental which is what a typical religion does I guess. However, because they felt that they were the one religion to rule them all, children and teenagers growing up the religion were validated left and right to have the mindset this religion had.
On one side it’s great to be surrounded with that much support, but on the flipside when the real world hits them at around 18 and they’re with college and whatnot, that validation gets challenged. Because of that, they carry this superiority complex over others who don’t share the same values as they do.
I’ve seen continual times where the church supports loving others but then the cheek turns and they judge those who do tattoo piercings, alcohol drinking, and then it even goes to trivial things like rated R movies, feeling right in every argument, or holding grudges.
I justified to myself for 6 years straight, “Oh, it’s just one person out of the religion and it doesn’t mean they’re all like that.” It became a daily trouble for me, and eventually I wore myself out mentally and pushed myself into depression about it.
I realized it wasn’t the religion itself but organized religion I wasn’t a fan of. I got depressed, left the religion, and 6 months later I recovered.
Yeah, not a fan of hypocrisy and conflict within organizations like those.”
9. Well, times have changed…
“When (some) Christians use bible verses for an argument but when someone brings up a ‘questionable’ bible verse they say it’s not supposed to be taken literally and that times have changed.”
10. And there you have it!
“My brother wouldn’t let his kids go to school because of covid.
But they went to hockey practice and games.
All three got Covid.”
“Feminists saying to stop body shaming and then when you say anything they disagree on they say stuff like “you have small d*ck energy”.”
“I worked for a veterinarian back when I was in college. On a couple of different occasions people brought in animals that had seemingly (to me) obvious problems but he would insist on doing blood work and x rays and other extras.
Not really running up the bill per se but as an animal rescuer who could only afford the “essentials” I felt it was necessary to ask him about it. His explanation was that even if it cost a lot more his thoroughness made him more money and it would be mad if he missed something. AND: “people who aren’t willing to take of EVERY issue an animal has shouldn’t own animals”
A few months later he took his older truck to get something fixed. The auto shop told him while he was there that the truck needed this fixed and that fixed and etc etc etc.
He was absolutely LIVID!! What did they think? That he was made of money!! They didn’t charge him extra, just told him what all needed fixed.
And yeah, an animal is different than a truck. But a person….say an elderly person on a fixed income…who wants to get this lump on Fluffy checked out, doesn’t need to hear that they are basically a bad pet owner if they can’t afford scheduled teeth cleanings and ALL the extras.
Needless to say, he didn’t appreciate my comparison of his methods to the auto shop’s methods.”
