Have you ever had to tiptoe around a certain situation that you personally felt shouldn’t be necessary, but because of societal norms you avoid at all costs? For me, it’s that I always want to walk outside my house without putting pants on, and I also hate that I have to be so careful to crack wise at anyone’s expense anymore for fear of hurting someone’s feelings. Don’t get me started.
Below people share “oddities” that they wish were not considered weird or awkward…
Calling out customers for being rude.
Being able to move your body more in everyday situations. It is often socially expected to sit, and wear clothing which makes it impossible to move. I would like to be able to randomly squat, stretch and the like.
Being able to just wave or say hi to people you hardly know. There’s nothing worse than an awkward 5 minute “catch up” chat at the store with someone I haven’t seen in years.
Being awake late at night and sleeping all morning. I’ve been like this since I a kid. Circadian rhythm is just backward. Can’t fall asleep before 3. I wish people didn’t treat me like I’m lazy or something. I’m a pretty productive guy. I just get my work done while you are all asleep.
Draping myself in velvet.
Neutral facial expressions. People act like anything that isn’t definitely a smile is some sort of insult. Another reason to appreciate masks.
I’m a guy and I get a lot of flak for complementing people’s clothing. I don’t think it’s weird, but apparently it means I must like men. If you got nice shoes I’m going to say they’re nice shoes.
Being able to sit in silence with someone without it being awkward. People shouldn’t feel obligated to come up with conversation, it makes interacting stressful. I do not believe in awkward silences, talk about something when it comes to you and conversations will feel way more real and interesting.
Wearing shorts at work during summer. Why wear pants when you could be more comfortable?
If other people are at my house having fun but I’m tired, I just want to be able go to bed, but they can stay and have a good time.
Cashiers need to be allowed to sit. The fact that most places won’t let them is a load of BS.
The Peter Principle needs to end. Not all good work should be rewarded with a promotion. Hell, back when I worked Retail they were talking about some of the ‘weird’ workers they had. And there was this one guy who was a trolly boy for 13 years. He could’ve been manager by the time and effort he put in so they just gave him a raise because he systematically refused every promotion, he was perfectly happy being a trolly boy.
Some people are really really good at doing grunt-level work but suck at any sort of management or anything with responsibilities, we should notice and respect that but still give them the rewards they deserve, a raise is much more valuable than a promotion to a lot more people than we think.
Running in public to get to places quicker.
Similarly, not being expected to socialize with co-workers during my lunch hour. I desperately need the alone time to recharge, but I’m sure people think I’m am antisocial asshole because I’ll straight get up and walk out if someone comes in the kitchen while I’m there. I’ll greet them quickly and be nice, but I have to gtfo before the inevitable small talk starts or I’ll lose my shit.
STAYING HOME WHEN SICK. I really hoped this pandemic would improve that mindset, but nope people still think you’re a lazy pos if you stay home when you’re sick.
Wearing cloaks Lord of the Rings style.
Fuck jackets, all my homies wear medieval cloaks
I would like to make it socially acceptable to tell employers that you’re only in it for the money and it being a legitimate answer. What am I supposed to tell employers, that I have always wanted to work at a part-time job and get yelled at by Karen’s so I could just make ends meet?
Eating alone at a restaurant or a solo movie trip.
I mean, sort of limited now due to covid, but before covid, when people would hear of me doing that, they said they felt terrible and how depressing that sounds.
I’m like, uhh…why? Just another day for me. Doesn’t feel weird or anything. It’s quite nice to get away from constant chats and have a nice quiet meal while being out and about.
