Nothing wrong with the grammar in your title! You can end with a preposition as long as that preposition has an object. Yours does: What. You just have informal phrasing. If you made it formal, you’d have About what do you silently judge people?

And so it shouldn’t suprise you that I silently judge people for sloppy grammar. I do. I probably shouldn’t, and I don’t care when it’s casual conversation or text messages or anything, but the number of people with high school diplomas who cannot construct a decent sentence when it matters is astonishing to me. It’s not like they didn’t have an opportunity to learn it, they just don’t think being accurate with words is important. And that makes me crazy.

People who wear thin tights as pants, do they not realise once you move in those things they go seethrough nobody wants to see that.

I judge people on their banking and their irresposibility with finance.

hear me out though: i work in what you would call a ‘loan shark’ we give out loans that have a 2%interest rate a month… and a 35% bokering fee. So when i go through you bank statements and see 98 $2 payments to Facebooks Farmville and your preaching about how desperate for a $100 loan so you can feed your kids. Yeah i silently judge.

@nycsa:  LOL. 

I talk about this issue often with my adult students.  Everyone judges, but the danger comes when it’s a subconscious act or it’s not skillful.  For example, if people are judging because of their own counter-transferance or projection, then it’s not skillful.  When you are not aware of or deny a judgement that in reality is present, it seeps into the subconscious and is still driving you.  There’s a great quote about this from the neuroscientist David Eagleman: 

“Your consciousness is like a tiny stowaway on a transatlantic steamship, taking credit for the journey without acknowledging the massive engineering underfoot.”

Not all judgements are bad, not all are good.  The trick is recognizing whether they are conscious or unconscious decisions, then asking ourselves if the judgements are warrented.

I judge parents when I see really poorly behaved or disrespectful kids, or kids running wild in a store while the parents ignore them. Also when I see them doing things like filling their sippy cups with soda or buying them whatever they want to keep them from tantruming.

Where I currently live, everyone who was born/raised here, says “I seen,” instead of “I saw.” Makes my blood boil every time I hear it.

I’m honest about being judgmental about people’s music taste, grammar/spelling, other areas I won’t get into…

Spelling and grammar is a huge one. The odd typo is fine, but I look down on people who write badly. I’ll judge fat people too.

I try to be nice to everyone but yes, I do judge… I think most of us do at some time or another. I try not to.

I have acne-prone skin so when I see someone with a huge zit (especially a whitehead) I can’t stop staring at it. This is what I think everyone is doing to me when I have a zit!

People that claim to be sick of being judged but judge those HARSHLY for not believing the same thing they do and .. um .. overly sensitive people. Put on your big girl panties stop whimpering.

I hate the bitch who lives across the street from me, so everything she does bugs the crap out of me.
