People who tease guys for drinking “girly drinks”. If a guy wants to drink a Strawberry Daiquiri let him drink it in peace.

You know what is manly? Drinking whatever the f*** you want without giving a s*** what people think.

Driving around residential areas too fast in cars with really loud engines and those exhausts that go BANG BANG BANG all the time. They look like nothing other than inconsiderate a***holes.

Gatekeeping a fandom or hobby. “You aren’t a real fan of XYZ band if you started listening to them after this album”, “You’re not a real beer drinker if you don’t like IPAs”

Doing something nice for someone and video taping it for clout.

Declaring themselves to a an ‘Alpha-male’, ‘High Value Women’ or anything like that it.

It screams immaturity and lack of self awareness.

Using a cellphone in public on speaker.

Undermining a person everytime they try to talk.

My ex did this to me and the amount of confidence I’ve lost is terrible. Still recovering after 3 years. Teasing someone when they gather guts to talk in a group and then laughing is useless. Cannot explain how badly it hurts

Picking on someone in a group and trying to get everyone else to laugh at them. Not in a hey! everyone’s joking around kind of way- in a being a nasty piece of work and embarrassing the person kind of way.

The line between joking and bullying can be a thin one, and a lot of douchebags either dont see it or they just dont care.

Wearing name brand clothing just because it has the brand written all over the clothing, for everyone else to see.

That whole “I don’t give a f***” attitude online where people just hate everyone and be super edgy, it doesn’t make you look cool, just makes you look like a d***.

Judging another person for their interests even if the other person’s interests don’t affect or hurt anyone else. The other day I had an acquaintance tell me how a friend of mine who likes to collect Funko Pops must be such a virgin even though the guy is literally married with a kid on the way.

Teachers who are proud of many of their students not passing, if I ever get a teacher like that maybe I should ask why they are proud for being a bad teacher.

This is very specific, but I once knew a bloke who thoughy he was cool for not liking Game of Thrones, which is fine, but would then post spoilers of it on social media along the lines of “I don’t watch or care about Game of Thrones, but X died in the most recent episode, unlucky if you saw this”. I fell victim of it once and I literally thought my blood was boiling. I was so angry.

The lesson here is probably to stay off social media before you’ve seen the most recent episode of a show you love…. But still…. F*** that guy.

Also judging people for their music choices. Like when someone goes through your iPod/Spotify/whatever and is all “eww you listen to this” then proceeds to tell you about the super edgy music they listen to that “no one really knows yet” ??

Smoking in “no smoking” zones

The ones who don’t know how to get attention so they start gossiping about everyone. And I’m like I know your life is not interesting but please have some respect for others and for yourself.

Constantly telling people about the women they’ve slept with or were otherwise involved with. I knew a guy like this in college, he was one of the most obnoxious dudes I’ve known.

Failing school does not inherently make you a douchebag, but bragging about it as if it’s something that is cool isn’t the best presentation of character either.


Revving your engines and blasting s***** music through a city neighborhood regardless of the time.

I live in Jersey City and this happens quite often, you don’t look cool.


I have a coworker who has the “gift of gab” and is very proud of his ability to give people false assurances while being extremely vague, essentially just bombarding them with words until they’re satisfied. It’s a useful trick, I suppose, but when you hear him do it in real time, you realize he’s just a very good liar.


driving expensive cars & cutting people off.


Endlessly talking and bragging about their “private lives”.

Example I had a real d*** of a boss who once said “man it wasn’t yesterday i got laid with that woman” after a customer left, which made me and my colleagues somewhat uncomfortable, he also talked about how his wife better show those “TTs” for everything he does.

I’m not interested and I think it is super trashy to talk like that.


Gatekeeping a music artist like they discovered them and are the whole reason for their success. Don’t get me wrong support the artist but don’t be that a**hole that determines “who is worthy” of a common trend.
