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.
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?
*Sorry to threadjack*
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!
