visible nose hairs, for sure.

flip flops in bars, or on black people.

people that look at their napkins after they wipe their mouths. wtf are they looking for?

people that are proud of themselves on facebook. its hard to explain but we all have close friends that are big talkers to their universe of friends but we all know the truth behind their bags of bullshit and if you're like me, you wanna call em out publicly on fb so they'll stfu.

i hate people that talk in elevators. either to me or to other people. it's such a small space, nobody gives a shit how your weekend was, bob.

slobbery dogs.

people that look like zombies at 6am when they're walking their dogs. oh, and they look like idiots walking with their little bag of trinkets when the dog is done.

when restaurant servers have nasty fingernails, and when they tuck their check books into the back of their pants. how is this not a health department violation?

bottoms that are not 'fresh.'

people that walk around barefoot outdoors (shiver to think what Kelly Clarkson's feet look like).

hate people that don't respect your personal space. was at the drug store last week and an asian lady was standing so close to me that I could feel her breathing on my neck, and I wanted to puke, and even when I moved up, she continued to keep the same distance behind me, finally I turned around and asked for a little room.

small talk. I freaking hate it. my dry cleaner called me unfriendly last week because he tried engaging me in pleasantries and I just threw my credit card on the counter and said "Im in a rush."

I have to agree with this. I always take my shoes off right at the door mat before I walk inside the house because the thought of all those germs getting on my floors grosses me out. Think about all the places our shoes go when we're outside: Filthy sidewalks, public restroom floors, etc.

ITA @ R26. I'd rather take my chances with whatever 'might' be on the bottom of your shoes than have you stinking up my house with your smelly shoeless feet.

Why does this one always come up? You would think people were walking around with an inch of slime on the bottom of their shoes the way the "no shoes indoors" team goes on about it. Hello!! Do you not have a mat outside and another one inside your door for people to wipe their feet?

Why don't Americans take off their shoes when entering their houses?

I'm Taiwanese and love in America. Being raised by An Asian family, it's always been expected (or rather, the norm) to take off your shoes when going in he house. But, when I went to visit my caucasian friend at her house, I noticed that she kept her shoes on. When I took mine off, she told me that I didn't have to do so. Why don't Americans take off their shoes? Don't you think it's dirty when you wear your outdoor shoes inside?

by Anonymousreply 3901/06/2013

The practice of taking shoes off can be found throughout Asia. It is also common in Scandinavia and in Hawaii and Alaska. In Japan, many homes have a getabako, or shoe cupboard where shoes are stored. Taking shoes off is a symbolic gesture that leaves the outer world behind. Shoes are traded for comfortable slippers and home becomes a separate sanctuary.

by Anonymousreply 4601/06/2013

In the US (northeast) it is considered rude to ask an adult to take off their shoes indoors. Only children are required to in most 'nicer' homes.

If you're having a party, consider the fact that your guests have put some thought into their entire outfit including which shoes to wear. They won't want to walk around barefoot, in socks or (dear God!) a pair of slippers you have provided.

Sorry, but when we Americans think about going shoeless indoors, it reminds us of those stinky ball pits at Chuck-e-Cheese. It's for kids, not adults.

I feel like this website is largely followed by people who are seriously mentally disturbed, hateful, racist, misogynistic, classist, fascist, ableist bigots who are evil and sociopathic.

The less time I spend on here the better, and every time I come here I wonder why I allow myself to pollute my mind and being by exposing myself to such utter detritus and filth. This place is a sewer of the mind.

I will not draw any conclusions or correlations as to why this is a website that is purported to be for gay men and how that might reflect on gay men as a whole, I think it is more a reflection of how utterly diseased male privilege is in general, white male privilege specifically, and I hold out hope that going forward this mentality is gradually evolved out of human DNA and eradicated, because I very much think it represents an ancient paradigm of power over and domination of our planet that is slowly killing us.

One of my goals for 2013 is to remove toxic people, places, ideas, or images from my environment, and I think the less time I spend here the better. I may have to altogether block it from my computer. I don't know why I am drawn here when it is a place that truly reminds me constantly of all I despise in the world.

People who take dumps at parties. I've been to countless parties over the years and have been shocked at the number of times someone took a dump at the party and fouled up the bathroom.

I remember one particularly bad incident. At this particular party, the hosts kept the party downstairs where there was one half-bath off the kitchen for guests to use. I was standing in line while my friend used the bathroom and was behind a woman who seemed fidgety. This woman almost knocked my friend down when he came out of the bathroom, so it was clear she was desperate. I had to go after her and she must have been in there about 20 minutes. At that point, I and another woman were waiting to go. We started to remark on how long it was taking the woman in the bathroom. Well it turns out that it took her that long to deposit her nuclear waste. When she was done, she came out and averted her eyes. Then it was my turn.

The smell was so bad I thought I was going to die. It made me gag and almost sick to my stomach. Just nasty and vile. I couldn't stay in there and came out of the bathroom immediately. Lucky for me, the person next in line was, as I wrote above, the woman who chatted with me while we waited forever for nuclear waste dump, so she knew I couldn't have done it. She walked in to see if she could stand it but came right back out. She was appalled. We discreetly brought one of the hosts over. He couldn't believe how nasty the smell was. He put on sign on the door that the bathroom was out of order and to use the upstairs bathroom.

People who don't wipe well enough and the shit stain is visible on their clothes (pants/trousers). This is something I find utterly disgusting and there is absolutely no excuse for it. I have sometimes wondered if this is a strange deficiency found more frequently in the South, especially among white trash types who mindlessly vote republican and listen to Rush Limbaugh(who probably himself doesn't wipe well, hence his idiotic claptrap--dirty hole at one end produces the diarrhea of the mouth at the other end) and others like him. A question: does anyone think that straight men in general don't wipe as well?

Although I am as gay as they come, so to speak, I find swallowing cum or rubbing it on one's face or other body parts to be quite disgusting and if I am watching porn that shows it I invariably look away. I don't know why, but I put cum on a level with snot--I guess that's why they call it cocksnot.

One more: runny bird shit on the sidewalk or even a big slimey loogie that looks runny--if I look at it too long I almost get the dry heaves.

He used to thrust his hands under the belted waistband of his pants, cradling his fat stomach. Then he would handle documents that we all had to touch.

He had a handkerchief he loudly trumpeted into, at a table in the lunchroom. Then he would open it and examine it thoroughly. Other times he would stand over the table, pull it out, then pull it apart sending dried snot all over.

Nose and ear hair full of little clots of matter.

Fat breathing.

Huge wet armpit stains. He would come to the half walled work are of someone, stand in the doorway and prop his arms up on either side.

There's a great book called Bright Sided that addresses this. The author, who's written a few other good books, learned she had breast cancer. She went onto web sites and to group meetings expecting that she'd get support and advice...instead it was a group who felt "blessed" by cancer and expected her to be endlessly sunny about her diagnosis.

R173, go back and reread my post. I wrote that we discreetly brought one of the hosts over. Do you understand what that means? Apparently not given your post. Also, there were two of us who pointed it out to the host and neither of us knew each other before the party, so the host knew it couldn't have been either one of us to have done it. Why would two strangers cover for each other?

R176, you have no idea how bad the smell was. Also, this was an old house and the half-bath was an addition. It did have poor ventilation. The host did light a candle, but again, I can't even describe how bad it smelled. The candle barely put a dent in the rank odor. We all speculated that she must have had some kind of medical problem because it was so nasty.

Lastly, I totally agree with you that there should have been more than one bathroom available, but the dumper would have fouled one of them and the party eventually would have been reduced to one place to pee. Or poop.

Sorry, R224, you are full of shit. I have never been asked to take off my shoes when I have been a guest in other people's homes. Never.

I have lived in different areas of the country - from NYC to Fairfield Ct, to Texas, to Florida to Middleburg to Washington DC. Visited all over including overseas, embassies, rather impressive estates and I've never been asked to at any of those places either. My family and many of my friends come from very lovely families with lovely homes and estates and it is unheard of. Simply unheard of. People wear shoes. They wipe their feet if they are entering a dwelling. If there's a problem then it is handled. It is beyond OCD and incredibly rude to ask people to undress just to enter your home. And that is in essence what you are doing - asking guests to do an intimate thing which is baring their feet.

It simply is not done in polite society.

I might add in case anyone has forgotten, the OP cannot handle the "moisture on the outide of milk cartons." Enough said.

[quote] I have also traveled extensively in Asia, and I can say unequivocally that no one would *ever* wear shoes into an Oriental household would be considered to be very offensive.

Pretty sure that nobody who has actually lived in Asia would use the word oriental.

I hate the "In Europe" trolls.

What's your problem with the word? We use it in England, no one gets upset, but for some reason the Americans think it's unacceptable. Could someone explain why.

Asians, in England, refer to people who come from countries like India and Pakistan. Orientals, the Far East.

I'm probably going to catch hell for this, but the hatred that transpeople get on the DL actually turns my stomach.

I didn't always have the most progressive attitude towards transgender issues either, but after seeing all the hatred Chaz Bono got, I realized I didn't like that about myself, so I changed.

Sorry to go off on a rant, but there was a thread about a transwoman who is suing a Catholic school that referred to the woman as "it" that set me off.

I don't hate them, but they have been pretty negative towards me, especially after getting rights at work and in life that I am still denied.

So I try to steer clear of them, but it very rarely works -- they often come looking for trouble.

R233 in Asia people take their shoes off. In some countries they have special slippers they wear in the house. I have relatives who spent a lot of time in Asia and when you enter their house there are shoes neatly lined up by the door and you are expected to remove them. They live here in the US now but collected some fabulous carpets in Qatar which cover almost their entire house like an Arabian tent so it feels really nice walking on them. My mother also has people take their shoes off. She doesn't want her wood floors getting scratched. She lives in TX.

So, R253, are you defending those in retail with their faux superior attitude? Are you one of these posers yourself? Or maybe you just troll this site looking for arguments?

Snooty salespeople are most annoying when superficially judging customers on how they appear when shopping on a day off in casual clothes. It's so irritating because these posers are judging you by looking for superficial signs of wealth. They completely overlook the way you're carrying yourself or the manner in which you speak. I can spot a nouveau riche from old money a mile away but I know better. I also know you never judge potential customers in retail.

It's right up there with people who mistake good manners for weakness. You're not going to up your sales stats and/or commission by giving me attitude because you can't discern a person of means from a browser who doesn't have two nickels to rub together. You might think you can tell but for all you know I've just finished a stint at Betty Ford and am not up on my game right now. You really never know who you are dealing with until they speak. I'm not going to purchase from you just to embarrass you when it dawns on you just who you are dealing with when you run my card through the sale. I'll contact management and put a big black stain on your employee record is what I will do. It will probably be the last straw as if you're treating me with your phony contempt it means you're treating everyone as such.

The topic is "Things That Disgust You" and pretentious people who are nothing and think because they've been hired to represent an upscale brand makes them a member of the elite disgust me. Being kind to others without immediate judgement is the hallmark of true class and it doesn't cost you a penny. See how that works? Thank you for reading.

There are two things are work with the very wealthy R280/R281. A lot of people with money have devoted their lives to making as much money as possible, doesn't make them bad people, but it does give you a sense of their priorities and how that might differ from other people's priorities who didn't think making a lot of money was the most important thing.

Two, there is a certain sense of entitlement that comes from having a lot of money. It is inevitable because well..having money does entitle you to certain things.

There are evil people with money sure, just as there are evil people without money, but in my experience that is real psychological factors when you are dealing with someone who is wealthy.

One of the most fun jobs I ever had was as a sales associate at Neiman-Marcus. However, some people came in with their defenses up so high it was like they were looking for a fight. They were mostly non-regular customers who were returning a gift. Back then, N-M return policies were very liberal. I once accepted back a shirt that had been a victim of a bleach accident (the tag said no bleach). But it seemed like some people were looking for a reason to act like I was trying to pull something on them. Why shop at a store you're uncomfortable at?
