@schmeebee85:  Bruh a little part of me dies on the inside every time I put the toilet roll on this way, but it’s the only way to stop the cat from being a shit head and unrolling it.

It ain’t right. Goes against the will of nature.

@sbl99:  I would get one of those roll covers. Or throw out the cat. LOL

Another WB specific one (and I’m probably on my own here) – I really hate the word ‘gush’ it makes me cringe and there is a thread that keeps reappearing, over and over and over with ‘GUSH‘ in the title, and I feel like it’s just mocking me by this point. 

Anyone else? Nope? I’ll see myself out.

Wedding specific: The whole waiting thing. I think it’s cultural, I’d never heard of this phenomena before joining this site. If you’ve discussed getting married, decided you’re definitely going to do it, you’re engaged. Waiting until the man then stages a romantic proposal seems totally bizarre to me…. Don’t get me wrong, I understand people like the romance, I just don’t personally get it

General: This one always makes people hate me – I don’t like kids or dogs. Dogs totally gross me out, I hate their mouths, they make me want to retch. And everyone assumes other people like their dogs. So many times, someone’s uncontrolled dog runs up and tries to slobber on me, and it’s always the same comment from the owner: “don’t worry, he won’t bite you, he’ll just lick you to death!”. Yeah, that’s just as bad, I’ll be over here dry heaving…

With kids, I just don’t want to be around them. I don’t like the noise, the mess, I don’t find them cute. For some reason, people seem to insist I hold their babies – no! I have zero desire to hold this extremely fragile human who is leaking from every hole they have – you keep it!

WB specific, every time I read someone is “over the moon” about something, I die just a little bit, inside. I wonder if the person posting is mature enough to get married. I’m sorry, but there it is.

Unpopular opinion 1: Men and women can be platonic friends and it’s healthy for these friendships to be nurtured one-on-one irrespective of the relationship status/sexual orientation of either individual.

Unpopular opinion 2: Many people with well-managed mental health issues can be way more insightful and less toxic than many “healthy” people given their willingness to enact change on their lives and admit room for improvement. 

Unpopular opinion 3: Believing that routine childhood vaccinations should be optional without medical exemptions is as good as being anti-vaxx. 

Unpopular opinion 4: The harm that alcohol does to the 10% of the population who have clinical alcohol use disorders outweighs the benefits to the remaining 90% who drink responsibly. I say this as a descendant of champagne makers.

@peach11:  yesssss. “Gush” lives in the same spectrum as “moist”, “chunk” and “discharge” for me. 

Like if you put all four of those words in a sentence together it’s my actual nightmare.

@kittycatcat:  With you on the waiting thing.  I’d never encountered it before WB either – most folk I know, discussed marriage in depth, then one of them asked the other and they were engaged.  I still can’t get my head around the concept of choosing a ring together, specifying when, where & how you want the proposal to take place, arranging a photographer or videographer and then…’ooooh, we’re engaged!’.  Same with ‘my boyfriend and I are getting engaged next month’…  If that’s how people WANT to live their lives, that’s fine.  But it does seem to me that ‘getting engaged’ at the point when you’ve agreed you want to get married would save a whole load of angst judging by the ‘is he going to propose on my birthday?’ and ‘I thought he’d propose on our mini break and he didn’t so it was ruined’ type posts.

Yeah. That “gush” thread title embarrasses me. It’s so … girly and squeal-ish. I cringe. 

I am grumpy enough to be honest to a degree of unkindness here; I may later be quite dishonest and say someone hacked my account and typed this …

Bridal showers are tacky and so are stag and doe parties.

I also think round solitaire rings are the equivalent to buying a photo frame and leaving the stock photo inside.

@katebluestone:  ahhh so glad I’m not alone. 

If people don’t stop commenting on it soon I may start posting controversial comments in the hopes of getting it shut down once and for all lol. Feel free to join me in the gush resistance.
