Trends come and go all the time.
Some we look back on fondly and some make us cringe and question our sanity as a society.
And there are some that we realize are really LAME even when they’re all the rage.
What trends do you really hate?
Here’s how people responded on AskReddit.
1. The video game world.
“When a popular game comes out and everyone in the video game industry ONLY makes games that are like that one game.
I don’t want 20 godd*mn different battle royal games in 2 years I want a bigger variety of games that’ll get me interested.”
2. Don’t do it!
“The period where everyone is using charcoal products.
It’s really horrible for your teeth and I really don’t know about the other products that are supposed to “improve” anything.”
3. A scam.
“There’s this one ad about a “detox footbath” it’s a normal footbath that electro-corrodes a piece of iron inside, so all the rust pours out into the water as “toxins leaving the body”.
It’s a scam.”
“Those TikTok trends where people make their spouses jealous.
It just seems weird to me that one would find humor in one’s spouse’s insecurities.”
“I keep seeing these memes that say “I don’t know who needs to hear this but..” followed by a generic piece of advice.
It’s not that bad.
But generally most trends on social media are annoying.”
6. Really lame.
“Pranks at the expense of retail and food service workers for likes on social media.
Work is already hard enough without morons making it worse.
They don’t even compensate you.”
7. Totally overused.
“I hate the phrase “we need to normalize…” because it’s so overused and all the articles that use it are so condescending.”
8. A little over the top.
“Gig work and the push to be hustling all the time.
And turning your hobbies into a side hustle to this.
Some people just like having a hobby, I hate this weird pressure to be a savvy business person when you’re comfortable right where you are.”
9. Just give me the recipe.
“How recipes need to share a life story over five pages worth of text before getting to the actual recipe.”
10. Way too much.
“I really feel peeved when I’m around people that feel the need to document so much of their life/our hangouts on social media.
Maybe it’s because I’m particularly shy, but I’m not always the most comfortable when I’m having a conversation, and somebody at the table is recording a Snapchat video of themselves (therefore their viewers can hear what I’m saying) or if we spend a crazy amount of time taking pictures for a story.
I don’t mind the occasional picture or anything like that, and I’m trying to be more relaxed about it, but it’s been a pet peeve for such a long time.”
11. So true.
Followed by ‘why is no one talking about this??'”
12. We live in strange times.
“How common it is to be proud of being called manipulative?
I’m not sure if it’s just on Tiktok, but people are always like “haha i’m a toxic girlfriend” or “female manipulator lol”.
Those are not qualities you should be bragging about. It’s so strange.”
“Clickbait articles. They’re everywhere.
I refuse to look at them, but every now and then there’s one that has some leading question that I actually DO want to know the answer to.
I hate knowing that even if I did try to follow the link, it would be 70% advertisements, 29% filler content, and maaaybe 1% that’s actually interesting.”
How about you?
