What idiosyncrasies make someone sad in your eyes?

People who know porn stars by name make me sad for them.

My heart breaks a little for adults who say grace before eating.

People and their beat up Tupperware in the lunchroom makes me sad.

Saying grace shows humility, to me.

But I'll agree on the lunch containers. Alas, I am one of those people, along with many if not most of my coworkers eating leftovers alone in our cubes, mere feet apart from each other.

People who make a point of saying that they don't care for expensive clothing when really they couldn't afford it anyway. People who don't mentally evolve at all, think they know everything are judgmental. People who are proud of being racist, anti intellectuals, mostly people who don't realise how small minded they are and how they miss out on life.

People on this board who are judging me by calling me judgmental make me sad. I am not judging anyone by their idiosyncrasies. I am just saying they make ME sad, not that the person is sad. That has everything to do with who I am and not who the other person is.

And I am being judgmental when I call you people idiots for saying judging people is bad. Everyone judges people, it's part of our survival instinct. "Is this person crazy, should I walk past them.". They maybe saner than you but you make the call out of your own protection. You're a hypocrit if you say you don't judge people and stupid if you think you should stop.

It's when you continue to believe in your judgements when facts tell you otherwise that it becomes a problem.

It makes me very sad that the datalounge webmaster is so cowardly that he or she is deleting any thread that mentions cancer hoaxster, and general psycho, Tig Notaro. I'm not sure it's an idiosyncrasy, but it is idiotic and deeply lame. I know that Lavely and Singer feeds this timid webmaster lies . They should look into things and realize that deleting the threads is a pathetic and corrupt thing to do. First Amendment rights, for god's sake. Why is this Z list opportunist wielding so much power? It's insane.

I was surprised when someone I knew said that seeing men reading alone in restaurants made them sad.

I go to restaurants alone all the time. And read. I *love* it. It's my quiet time, away from work and distractions, where I can enjoy a good meal (without the issues of having to do dishes, or cook, or clean) and read an enjoyable book. I was totally stunned that anyone would look at me and be SAD for me when I did that.

I tried to explain it to her... it's like a little vacation get-away, disappearing into a book and enjoying a good meal and not having to deal with anything else. I don't often get uninterrupted periods to just sit and read, so getting away for a nice meal in a nice restaurant to read and eat is one of my personal joys.

I think some people wasting time and energy feeling "sad" for someone else they see, when they don't really know the whole story, is just silly.

It's not that they are packing their own lunches that makes me sad, or the fact that their tupperware isn't pristine.

It's just imagining them in their kitchens alone, at night, scooping out their left overs into these beat up containers. Maybe it's my imagining of their sad lonely life as reflected in the use of the same container year after year. The thought breaks my heart thinking of them.

I don't think they really believe that they'll be found attractive. I think that they just think that if they hit on enough young people the law of averages will provide a few young people with low enough self esteem to get them some action.

Americans absolutely obsessed with the British monarchy, the way the titles are conferred, the order of succession, etc., etc. The only reason Brits are given a pass on this (IMO) is because the monarchy is actually part of their national identity. And though I would imagine those Brits who are repositories of monarchy trivia may tend to be conservative (bleh), I see it as on par with anyone who gets nerdy about the history and/or customs of their own country. To each their own.

But the whole point of American history and it's existence was the rejection and overthrow of a monarchy. Why romanticize the very thing that's abhorent to your national political identity?

Granted, I'm guessing most of the U.S. monarchy lovers probably know fuck all about politics. But they can tell you in breathless detail why Diana was the Princess of Wales, but not Princess Diana and why Princess Michael is not Princess Entitled Cunt (or whatever her given name is).
