What’s something that everyone finds normal but makes you extremely uncomfortable? [Serious] [NSFW]

  1. Talking on the phone in front of people. I’ll walk outside or into another room, but I feel so uncomfortable if I have to talk on the phone around people.

  2. When someone tells me “Hey, I need to talk to you, lets talk [tomorrow / this afternoon / sometime in the future]”

    Oh shit, something is horribly wrong, I’m getting fired, or dumped, or they ate my pet, or the world is going to careen into the sun, why won’t you talk to me NOW? What is so horribly bad that we need a private room and you had to warn me ahead of time that we’d talk about it?

    Had a boss who did this to me once on a Friday, “I want to talk to you Monday morning, set aside some time ok?”

    I had to kill them by Saturday night, there was just no other way.

  3. Writing birthday/holiday/sympathy/event cards. Everything I write feels so forced and superficial, I fucking hate writing cards.

  4. I hate singing or being sung happy birthday

  5. Wakes. They creep me out. Hey, Herb just died… Let’s pump him full of preservatives and wheel his dead body out so we can all look at it. Yuck.

  6. Hearing a woman singing in French. I can’t find a reason for something so specific (no traumatic experiences or anything), but it just makes me feel extremely awkward.

  7. Accepting praise or nice things from others, it feels like I’m taking advantage of them and even if I do deserve the praise, it still seems wrong to me

  8. When the teacher says to get into groups

  9. I can’t stand it when someone who isn’t my wife rubs my shoulders, or touches me more than a simple handshake or a hug greeting. Most people love that shit.

  10. Dunno if this is considered normal or not but people who make weird noises when they are enjoying their food. A bit too much. Like “mmmmm mmm oh God so good (heavy breathing), ohh, mmmm”….

    I’ve heard a lot of people do this. I love food too, but this grosses me out. Especially the heavy breathing part.

  11. Smiling for a picture. I mean, I try not to look like a sullen asshole when someone takes a photo of me but I hate forcing a smile. My forced smiles make me look like I’m either insane or someone stuck something up my ass unexpectedly.

  12. Knowing whether to hug or handshake.

  13. My own birthday. I hate being reminded every year that I’m getting older, and I hate being the center of attention in such a way that “celebrates” me. It just feels so awkward.

    Oddly enough, I love others’ birthdays. Celebrating others doesn’t bother me in the slightest.

  14. I think it’s extremely weird that at 18 you are supposed to make the decision as to what you want to do for the rest of your life. High school in America offers almost no guidance/exploration into different career fields and the majority of 18 year olds have almost no worldly experience, yet they are expected to pick a career and typically invest between 2-6 years and thousands of dollars studying that field, then find a job in it and work it to retirement?

    When I was 18 I couldn’t decide what my favorite type of cake was. I’m 27 now, back in school after a 3 year hiatus, and have changed majors probably 5 times.

    It’s insanity.

  15. pooping in a public washroom
