A few years ago I was at a concert and I was all geared up to see one of my favorite bands.

The opening band was pretty popular too but I had never really listened to them so I didn’t know what to expect…and their 45-minute set was so painful that I was kind of shocked.

And the thing that really made me scratch my head was that people in the crowd LOVED them.

Were they pretending? Or am I just clueless?

I’m going with the first option!

See what AskReddit users think people only pretend to like.

1. Not good.

“Tyler Perry movies.

It’s ok not to like that c**p.

Don’t feel obligated.”

2. You’re crazy!

“The beach.

Everyone’s like, “Yay, the sun! Let’s go enjoy the sun! At the beach!” And then they have to bring massive tents and coolers full of cold drinks to make the sweltering heat and lack of shade bearable.

“Hey, let’s go swimming in the ocean! So refreshing!” Yeah, let’s swim in a salty soup of fish s**t and decomposing seaweed, stepping in I-don’t-want-to-know-what, and then be covered in sand as we trudge back to our urban a**ault vehicles to nurse our sunburns.


3. Yuck.

“Coconut water.

It’s human sweat masked in aesthetic packaging.”

4. Sticky icky icky.

“Totally convinced that the smell of weed is a good answer to this.

I don’t care what kind of weed it is, it all smells god awful to me. I’d even call it vomit-inducing.

I refuse to believe anyone out there is being honest when they claim to love it.”

5. All hype.


A bit controversial but everyone praises her like anything she’s done in her career has been remotely groundbreaking.”

6. Not working for ya.


I used to run 3 miles a day and never got a runner’s “high” just super winded.”

7. Sorry, not interested.

“When people show you pictures of their children.

Nobody cares about your children.”

8. The people are divided.


They all taste like pine needles.

I feel like I’m taking crazy pills.”

9. Couldn’t get into it.

“Childhood plays.

Never was there a bigger mass charade in my life than the applause after a half-baked play.”

10. Boo!

“Going to weddings. Even worse is BEING in a wedding.

My wife was asked to be a bridesmaid and of course she said yes. She also wasn’t working so yours truly got to pay for the dress, the shoes, hair, makeup etc.

No they did not get a gift.”

11. Bored.

“Drag shows. It’s literally just guys lip syncing dressed as women.

They were probably fun back in the day when it was something unique but now it feels like people watch them to show others how supportive of LGBTQ they are.”

12. I’m with you.

“I’m convinced no one likes fennel.

I’ve yet to hear the phrase “you know what would make this better? Some fennel.”

I h**e the stuff. Can’t stand it when it’s included in a dish.”

What do you think people only pretend to like?
