There aren’t too many things in life that people as fired up as hypocrisy…especially when it’s a real WHOPPER, if you know what I mean…
But if you spend enough time on this planet, you quickly realize that a lot of people out there are, unfortunately, big hypocrites.
I guess it’s just part of life and we have to deal with it…
AskReddit users talked about the most hypocritical things they’ve ever witnessed.
Let’s check out their responses.
1. Calling the kettle black.
“I was having a hard time getting a job after college.
My step grandmother called me every single name in the book. Every variation of “deadbeat dependent loser” you can possibly think of. Almost every singe time I saw her.
“No self discipline, no drive, too dependent on others. I cant believe you can’t get a job. I taught my daughters how to work. You’re definitely your mothers child. I had expectations for my own kids. All I knew is I had to work.”
This is the same person who never had a job in her life, wasn’t able to collect her own social security since she never paid into it, and was 100 percent dependent on my grandpa.
Way to call the kettle black. It got so bad, I had to stop talking to her all together since each convo would just be putting me down.”
2. Yikes. Sorry.
“My ex-wife, shortly after we separated, told me when/if I started seeing someone that she would want to meet them before our kids did. Which makes perfect sense.
Two months later the guy she had an affair with moved from NC to FL and in with her and my two kids. I still haven’t met him and it’s been six months.”
3. The rules don’t apply to me…
“My friends who b*tch about people who break lockdown, then go on to break lockdown for “sleepovers” and “girly nights” the same day they were criticising others.
“Others must follow the rules but they don’t apply to me”.”
“When I was going through my college party phase I ended up hanging with kids who graduated from a local Christian school.
They drank, did drugs, and bragged about premarital s*x like a lot of college students.
When you talked about politics though, they immediately would go on and on about the moral failings of society and how it needs to be more Christian yadda yadda.”
5. Your dad sounds like a blast.
“Just my dad in general. Here’s some highlights.
As a child, he’d often tell me I had to think for myself, but then he’d beat me if I said things he disagreed with. Sometimes, he’d pose questions to me, and then hit me until I guessed the chain of logical jumps that led to the conclusion he was looking for.
He once went on a 4 hour rant about how my generation are all dirty communists and Muslims are all terrorists and a big gay conspiracy and other such nonsense. I couldn’t get a word in edgewise, but he had the gall to end with “I’d be willing to change my mind if anybody were willing to have a discussion with me, but nobody’s willing to talk with me”.
In high school, he sometimes made fun of me for being a creature of habit. He’s had the same routine, worn identical oufits, and eaten the same lunch every day for the past 20+ years at least. I didn’t have much say in my routine back then anyway. School ate up most of my time, and it’s not like my parents allowed me to get together with my friends.
Similarly, he’d make fun of me for not having friends. I did have friends, but to him they didn’t count because he’d never met them, because he never allowed them to visit, because he’d never met them. He has one friend that he sees outside of work once a year, and often times not even that.”
6. Pretty bad.
“Televangelists preaching how we should live modestly while they own several private jets to fly around the country spreading the word of The Lord.
Sometimes they’ll come on TV saying God came to them in a dream saying they needed more.
Jesus would fly coach if he flew at all.
I believe Jesus also preached about taking in the displaced, etc?
In 2017 Joel Osteen was not allowing hurricane evacuees into his megachurch.”
“I’ve been repeatedly s*xually harassed by a gay man before and have even had to make sure he didn’t find out where I lived so he couldn’t keep doing it. When I explained this one time to my co-workers one sneered and said I was just being homophobic and assuming it was harassment.
I said the man has repeatedly attempted to convince me to sleep with him despite my refusals, attempted to find my home, and once tried to trap me in a public restroom to make sure he couldn’t lose track of me. If I was a woman in this situation would my coworker even think of telling me that I was overreacting?
Fortunately the rest of my crew supported me and tell him it was hypocritical to assume s*xual harassment can only happen to women.”
8. Bad move.
“A girl who posted about how she doesn’t eat beef because she loves cows.
The next day she posted a photo of her new designer leather handbag.”
9. That’s bad.
“My dad hates illegal immigrants…
And he was once deported from the US from entering illegally as an immigrant.”
10. You’re right!
“People wearing Blue Lives Matter regalia beating police officers with an American flag.
That’s peak hypocrisy.”
11. Come on, people!
“My brother wouldn’t let his kids go to school because of covid, but they went to hockey practice and games.
All 3 of them got Covid.”
12. Point taken.
“People who get really upset about animal abuse and claim to be “animal lovers”…
And then go eat a double cheeseburger at McDonald’s.
Cognitive dissonance is alive and well.”
13. Always goes this way.
“My ex would get mad at me for having guy acquaintances – not even friends really, just from classes or work .
He policed my phone and my life and the f*cker was CHEATING on me.”
Kinda makes your blood boil, right?
And now it’s your turn!
