For I don’t think it’s gendered — I remember in college (way back in the 90s) being at the caf and a male friend of mine was eating yogurt. I could barely look at him! The way he was spooning it, the lack of need to chew. Ugh no.

I eat yogurt every day. I think it might be gendered in the US for the reasons mentioned above, but it really is considered "healthy food" by most people nowadays, even if it's the heinous, very sugary kind.

Mine? At my new gig I work with a team of other editors, and higher-ups are always saying 'lets push the button on that piece' and in my head I'm like 'please stop using that phrase, it is so awful'

The idea that 90% of the plot and/or dialogue on 90% of the trending shows on netflix or any of the platforms really were presumably generated by adult humans who then sent them on to other adult humans to be approved for viewing by still more adult humans, i could genuinely just die for them all

calling a quick, informal meeting a "chat." more specifically, when i've set up a meeting called "such and such chat" and the alert pops up and says "such and such chat" it makes me ie.

This has probably been addressed by other users, but when people in the workplace use terms like "awesomesauce." I want to ask them if they're neuroatypical.

I got a very lateral job title change, and I don't want to update my profile.

hahaha ... yeah, I really try not to be bothered by this, but it takes effort ... my current "embarrassment avoidance strategy" is thinking that maybe they moved around a lot as kids, potentially to foreign countries, and this tendency to assume the vernacular of their perceived peers was kinda a survival mechanism of their youth that just continued into adulthood and that is why far too many things are "bonkers" and they have a "kiddo" and associate with "humans".

wild how quickly this thread turned from "irrationally embarrassed" to "irrationally judgmental"

like, I’m eating an elephant head (katherine), Monday, 15 February 2021 06:36 (two weeks ago) link

hmm i think this revive is rationally judgmental but irrationally embarrassed

sarahell, Monday, 15 February 2021 08:47 (two weeks ago) link

is "bonkers" new slang?

That's bonkers

then again i still catch myself somehow wanting to say "totes amazeballs" on occasion, which is about as cringey as it gets

Party With A Jagger Ban (dog latin), Monday, 15 February 2021 10:41 (two weeks ago) link

i no longer believe in irrational embarrassment. it has been vanquished.

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Monday, 15 February 2021 15:29 (two weeks ago) link

I admit the neuroatypical comment was lame, apologies.

The "bonkers" thing is hard because there are only so many ways to say "this situation is crazy" without utilizing really loaded terms...like crazy. Bananas is the one I use if I ever need to, "wild" also works.

I get weirdly embarrassed when people in restaurants overdo the apologies for running out of something.

me, I don't care, I just...find something else (I can eat almost anything), but if someone's like "oh I'm sooooo soooo sorry that we don't have the 3 pound Steakburger with Alien Cheese and Salamander bread, I know you had your heart set on that, let me buy your dessert", I'm embarrassed cos they think I actually am 'upset' when I'm not.

he said that you son of a bitch (Neanderthal), Monday, 15 February 2021 17:22 (two weeks ago) link

I think there are enough really picky high maintenance customers that restaurant people just do that as a default. ... I am irrationally embarrassed when I observe customers who actually do get upset and require mollification.

i wonder how these people were raised and/or how they came to be the way they are ... basically I am rationally embarrassed for their parents (and often kids).

sarahell, Monday, 15 February 2021 18:06 (two weeks ago) link

I once contacted corporate to tell them if they got a complaint for xxxx store from a couple at xxxx time on xxxx date to ignore it because I was there and they started everything.

they told me that couple did complain and gave me a free lunch lol
