@skyeatnight:  I know a lot of people do have dramatic fake coughing fits, but some people like me are having a real fit. I have a respiratory condition that is triggered by smoke where my vocal cords collapse over me windpipe. I wheeze, cough, can’t breathe, and the kicker is I also can’t talk to ask oblivious smokers to move away from me or at least downwind. I had one guy litteraly walk circles around me at a bus stop from about 2 feet away and I nearly collapsed from lack of air;he never noticed. Sometimes the wheezing and coughing is not dramatics, but a real, medical problem, and I think if you must smoke you should at least try to determine wind direction and try to stand downwind at places like bus stops.

@WillyNilly:  Reasonable, there’s lots to judge in FL. But I live in Alabama now and the judging about this state is WAY more entertaining.

@MrsWrangler:  Thank you. Another thing I judge (I hate this!) is southern accents. The ONLY one I don’t judge is Bill Clinton. Swoon!

@WillyNilly:  Hah I love Southern accents – Maybe cause at times I have one. I actually love all aspects of the South, even thought it’s a funny place. It’s the NYC/Maine/Boston/Michigan/Minnesota accents that are obnoxious to me… I don’t really judge them like people judge Southern accents (ie accent = stupid and uneducated), I just don’t like em.

@WillyNilly:  have you ever noticed when singers with accents talk they have a heavy one? But when they sing, it’s completely gone? Weird.

Another set of people I judge: those who never leave their own country or who only travel to places which may as well be home (i.e. Brits who only ever go on package holidays to Spain).

And tourists who make no effort to adapt to the country they’re in. I know you can’t learn an entire language every time you visit a country but at least learning how to say “I’m terribly sorry but I don’t speak (insert language here)” and a few other phrases will make you a lot of friends.

@SpecialSundae:  omg I don’t even judge, I have a HATRED of Brits abroad. I cannot watch Benidorm or Shameless because I like to pretend these people don’t exist.

@lookingglass:  I’m fuming that my dad moved to Ibiza and that I have to waste my travel time to go visit a part of Spain that I’ve always consciously avoided.

I’m hoping to drag DH to India to go travelling next year.

@SpecialSundae:  Lol my parents have a villa in Spain and every time we go we walk past this English pub and look at them all, red faced and beer bellies.

We want to go to Japan in the next few years. I love experiencing different cultures!

@WillyNilly:  That’s fair. It’s just rare you see a car without any dings. I guess everyone are drunk drivers. 😛

@lookingglass:  Its funny you brought this up, I just had an old british man in my book store who repeatedly and without cause kept insulting Americans, he was like, “Do you have an atlas? Not an American atlas, a world one, because regardless of what you think the whole world isnt America.” Then he started complaining about how big our store was and said, “You Americans need to have everything so huge, you have no idea what the rest of the world looks like, you havent got a clue.”

Finally I snapped and said, “You know, my husband has been to Europe twice and I spent time in Japan, I do know actually, and if you want to talk about tiny spaces go to Japan.” He was surprised and only then became civil with me.

HOW RUDE. How on earth do people go to other countries and do nothing but stereotype and insult everybody there?

@skyeatnight: Amen. Totally agree. When I was a smoker, I’d say “Why are you coughing? I’m the one inhaling.” If you live in a city you inhale a hell of a lot more carcinogens than those from secondhand smoke from my cigarette.

I am judgemental, it’s something I struggle with, takes up too much of my time. So to continue with that tradition, I judge:

– People who claim not to be judgemental (almost impossible, I think). I am very wary of these people because a lot of them are the WORST type of holier-than-thou judger.

– People who are judgemental of recreational drug use (read, smoking pot) but who drink. 

– Ridiculously self-indulgent weddings.

– Couples who are going in for pre-marriage counseling because of insurmountable issues. I’m sorry but if you already have that many problems, how is marriage gonna help?

– Women who claim to hate other women or who sell women out (to be fair I have done some mean things to other women). Slut shaming.

– People who do things because “that’s how they’re done”; people obssessed with image and “how it looks”. People who treat others as weird or odd because they do what makes them happy, not what is supposed to make them happy.

– People who don’t know shit about grammar jumping on the “grammar nazi” band wagon. Knowing how to spell words correctly doesn’t mean you know the ins-and-outs of English grammar (I certainly don’t) and it doesn’t give you the right to feel superior to others. I don’t know why grammar has become the popular thing to be snooty about.

– People who own dogs but neglect them. I don’t mean flat-out abuse, I mean not spending time with them, letting them get fat, leaving them tied up outside.

I am guilty of all of these though, except the dog one.

I judge anyone who gets their news from Fox News. 

The friggin cricket in my office that I can’t find and it won’t quit it’s chirping

Parents who let their kids walk around smelling like pee. If I can smell that your kid pissed it’s pants then surely you can too. 

Kids not in the cart in the grocery store. If you must bring all 5 of your kids then put them in the damn cart so I can make it through the aisle without being run down by your hellions. Or better yet leave them at home.

I judge grown adults with brightly colored hair. I don’t even know why because I would love to rock pink hair someday, I think it looks really fun. But when I see a 30 year old with purple hair I just think “Where do you work?”

Totally judgy I admit it!
