I have been to all three, the bachelor parties are the worst.

Fat ugly strippers show up dangling loose floppy boob on your face and you are supposed to give them some kind of tip for that pleasure.

I would rather mop up infected cum from the local bath house then do that again.

The whole troops and police and firefighter obsession.

I always explain to people that for ever West Point graduate you have 50 idiots who could barely finish high school in the military. They aren't doing anything special, they are a bunch of followers. They add nothing.

Police and firefighters are those same morons in high school who picked on 'the different' kids and acted like assholes. Once in awhile they'll do something brave and/or heroic, but it's isn't in their nature to do those things.

by Anonymousreply 6704/20/2013

Why must those activites necessarily be BENEATH you? Why can't they just be not your thing?

Some of you are so fucked up. You can only see the world in terms of hierarchies.

by Anonymousreply 6804/20/2013

R68, don't go pissing all over "some of you." It's the OP who created the "beneath you" phrasing.

You're fucked up.

R68. Hierarchies are good for society. They provide structure. Unfortunately, most people believe themselves higher up the ladder than they will ever be.

Something American that is beneath my contempt is clearly R87

by Anonymousreply 8904/20/2013

But R60, what about the HRC equality stickers? With just an equal sign. That is the only bumper sticker I've ever used.

I agree with almost everything in this thread, though.

by Anonymousreply 9004/21/2013

R59 thanks for the laugh.

For me "some all-American activities that are beneath" me are:

yes, bowling -- even as a kid I couldn't get past wearing shoes that hundreds of other people already sweated in recently -- and dorky looking shoes at that.

watching Jerry Springer. I know sometimes it can be fun, but a whole hour of people yelling using bad grammar? I get a headache.

eating maraschino cherries. These aren't real cherries but full of carcinogenic chemicals.

insulting people with indirect insults like "is it hot in here or is it me?" if they stink etc. No, I either shut up or tell them they stink in a nice way in how I would want to hear it. Mostly yeah, I shut up.

Any kind of reality TV

Restaurants that serve "buffets" 7 days a week

Olive Garden, Red Lobster, Chili's, and other chain "restaurants" like them

I do like bowling once or twice a year with a group of friends just for laughs, but the rest of the stuff on this thread I would definitely agree with.

House "parties" where they sell stuff. You know, Tupperware, candles, etc. Ugh. I know more about this stuff than I care to thanks to all the cubefraus I work with.

Walmart. Never. Ditto for Sam's Club.

I never eat hot dogs or most fast foods either. Especially Taco Bell. Never. Just. no.

Domino's Pizza. gross.

by Anonymousreply 9304/21/2013

While most of the activities here aren't things that I enjoy, the phrase "beneath you" is far more revolting and facile than any of them.

Bitch, please. Just because you dislike bowling, it does NOT make you the new Edith Wharton.
