You ever hear people talking about how much they love something that you don’t get at all? Maybe it’s extreme sports or reality TV or old movies—there are plenty of things people claim to enjoy that just don’t make sense.
Redditor u/DionSinghLanda apparently wanted to r/AskReddit to get to the bottom of things when they asked:
“What’s something you’re sure everyone is just pretending to like?”
It’s time to root out all these liars and get people to finally admit: The Masked Singer sucks.
1. Work parties
Employer’s holiday parties.
2. Getting roasted
Getting roasted on r/roastme. Sincerely, I’m too sensitive for that
3. Hustle culture
Overworking every day, in every aspect of life, has to burn you out. I think it gets to a point of vindictive “I suffered and so must you”, as well as weird masochism. You can be successful while maintaining boundaries, erasing them just sets a new and unattainable “normal.”
4. Reality TV shows
Shows like Masked Singer and the like.
5. Flat Earth theory
I don’t believe you. You don’t really think that. You’re pretending for the sake of obstinacy.
NFTs were the moment I realized that I was old. I still don’t exactly get what the f-ck they are? Or what they’re for? Or why people spend what appears to be tons of money on them? No amount of googling has helped lol
7. “Like and share – 1 like = 1 prayer”
No Rebecca – you don’t really care about this family/child/person etc.! Stop pretending!
Seriously. Who the hell cares what the very few chosen/popular people are saying and doing, and what they’re shilling?
My life has enough drama with just myself and my family and friends.
Everyone who has quit it is happier.
10. Lip fillers
The injected lips trend. People don’t really like this right..?
11. Kids that aren’t your own
Other people’s kids
12. Corporate jobs
Working a corporate job and using phrases like “manage client expectations” and “circle back” and pretending to care about things that are absolutely irrelevant and meaningless to anything that actually matters in life.
13. Cake fondant
It’s like edible crayons. Sure you CAN technically eat it….
14. Family vacations
Vacationing with extended family.
15. Getting too drunk
Getting absolutely f-cking wasted to the point you pass out and lose all memory of it the next day
16. Church on Sunday
Everyone is always like, “I’m filled with joy, i love Church!”. You look at the faces, no ones body language says joy.
I think everyone is lying to everyone else, no one enjoys it like that. They’re all just to afraid to be the first one to say, ‘No im not happy today my house burned down we got issues Jesus…’
Yes, I’m Catholic.
In any other context the vast majority of women would hate gaining massive amounts of weight, puking, skin mapped with scars from blowing up so rapidly, feet and face swelling, nipples darkening and expanding, crying spells, etc. Obviously many are excited about the product of it, but I genuinely don’t believe all the women who say “I LOVE pregnancy! I LOVE getting fat and feeling like I have the flu for nine months! I feel so beautiful!”
