I was inspired by Allison’s post, since I’m the type of person who has no problem writing/complaining about things I don’t like. Also, people are weird. We all have weird tastes. What one person loves, another person can totally hate. I once met someone who didn’t like chocolate! (I know, hard to believe. I was shocked, myself.)
I’ve often been asked “How can you not like *insert-thing-I-don’t-like-here*‽” Mostly, it’s food-related. And I’ll admit, I’m definitely picky when it comes to what I eat. But I don’t understand why any thing can be considered so shocking to dislike. To each their own, no? Here’s some things I’ve been exclaimed to about:
Let’s talk about this font. Yes, it’s neutral. Yes, it can go with everything. But do you know why it goes with everything? Because it’s fucking boring, that’s why. But at least it’s better than Arial, amirite?
Just… no thanks. I’d rather drink wine or some fruity cocktail!
I honestly don’t understand how people can watch this mindless stuff. But I suppose it’s like watching a train wreck, you just can’t look away even though it is this terrible, horrible thing.
Quentin Tarantino Films
There, I said it. I didn’t enjoy Kill Bill. Pulp Fiction was okay. Inglorious Bastards is the only one of his films that I’ve seen and liked enough to watch it a second time. Granted, I haven’t seen Django Unchained… But I also don’t have any desire to.
Purposefully Stupid Movies
Examples: Hangover (and all it’s sequels), Superbad, Anchorman. I just don’t enjoy this kind of humor.
South Park, Family Guy, etc.
And while we’re on the topic of purposefully stupid things, these TV shows. I can count the episodes of South Park that I’ve remotely liked on one hand.
Uggs & Toms
Ugly shoes are ugly. Though I will at least admit that they are comfortable. (I actually do own a pair of Uggs… that I use as house slippers. That’s excusable, right?)
Raw fish‽ Really? I don’t even like cooked fish.
Or as my coworker likes to call them: “urban food logs.” There is just way too much going on in that tortilla… and it’s often bigger than my head. No me gusta.
Other Foods I Don’t Like
Bananas, watermelon, red meat (yes, this includes hamburgers), olives (the texture, not the taste), mushrooms (again, texture! I like mushroom sauces), kale, sriracha sauce, most sandwiches that have way too many ingredients (just give me some meat & cheese and I’m good to go), tomatoes, mayonnaise, mustard, eggs.
I’m sure there’s more, but if I continued this list would probably take me days to complete! But at least I’m not as bad as @DanHigbieHates.
