Nobody likes being left out of something fun or trendy. Unfortunately, not everything is worth trying! Is there anything worse than trying something new that you were told you’d love and realizing you hate it? Recently, men and women met in an online discussion to reveal everything they tried because the general public proclaimed it was fantastic — and turning out to be awful.
1. Getting Drunk
In many people’s eyes, drinking excessive alcohol to get drunk has no positive side effects. From the potential humiliation incurred, the loss of self-control, physical discomfort, the long-term health effects, and the one-crushing hangovers, getting drunk is an amateurish way to spend an evening. At a certain point, drinking too much stops being fun.
2. Wearing Leggings
Leggings are ubiquitous in 2023 — women are just as likely to wear them while running errands as workout out at the gym. However, not all females are on board with the trend. “Maybe it’s just because I grew up in the JNCO jeans and M.C. Hammer pants era, but leggings always felt like they were suffocating my lower body parts,” laments one woman. “I cannot understand how anyone wears them other than going to the gym.”
Kombucha sales have exploded as one of the premier health trends of the past decade. The fermented tea beverage has plenty of nutritional benefits tailor-made to ensure you live a healthier life. One problem, though: According to many people, it tastes awful! “Tried it, and it was like gargling a rotten pickle,” confesses one woman. “Don’t get me wrong; I love pickles and their juice. But kombucha is too much.”
4. Raw Oysters
Although I maintain raw oysters are among the most delicious foods in the world, I understand why they turn off many people: Their texture is unique! Well, actually, let me be more precise: The texture of oysters is unnerving to countless people. Their above-average flavor doesn’t make up for the feeling of a slippery and slimy sea creature gliding down your throat.
5. Napoleon Dynamite
When Napoleon Dynamite was released in 2004, it immediately garnered a reputation as the comedy of a generation. But unfortunately, many people (myself included) didn’t understand what all the hype was about. “It came out when I was in high school, and it was so hyped,” recalls one man.
“People wouldn’t shut up about how hilarious it was. Some friends and I finally watched and stared at the screen in silence with awkward chuckles for the whole duration. Ultimately, we’re like, “So we all agree that was garbage, right?”
6. Attending the Kentucky Derby
Attending a prestigious horseracing event in Kentucky while wearing fancy clothes and gigantic hats has become decidedly on-trend for thousands of people annually. Newcomers who want to be part of the action are often left disappointed. This antiquated event — based around the controversial racing of horses — is crowded, sweaty, and boring.
Although coffee is one of the most popular beverages sold worldwide, many are proudly anti-coffee. Don’t tell these people that coffee is “an acquired taste,” though! “Anything, where people tell you it’s an acquired taste — should be a warning sign,” explains one man. “I shouldn’t have to acquire a taste for it — that means it’s trash.”
I get it. Eating raw fish is not everyone’s idea of delectable cuisine! Sushi has exploded in popularity over the last 20 years, but not everyone is on board. For many people, the thought of putting raw tuna or salmon in their mouths is a mental hurdle they can’t get past. Sushi lovers can agree that these people are missing out on truly great food!
9. Attending Coachella
For many 20-somethings, attending the Coachella Music Festival is a rite of passage. However, many people are shocked when they realize what Coachella has become: A social media-focused festival where live music takes a back seat to sky-high concession prices and laughable amenities. Most people go to Coachella once and never return.
While riding rollercoasters is marketed as one of the most thrilling activities a person can do, it doesn’t cater to everyone. Many people equate rollercoasters to terror. “Rollercoaster commercials on television show everyone having fun, but honestly, I hate rollercoasters,” confesses one woman.
“There is nothing fun, and every second of the one ride I ever took was me squeezing onto the chest strap, holding on for dear life, swearing I would never do it again. And I haven’t because it sucks.”
