Are there any things society considers acceptable that you are bothered by immensely? You've got company.

Recently a Redditor asked, “What's something that's considered normal that creeps you out immediately?” Over 20,000 people weighed in to deliver this list.

User heavenupsidedownn shared, “This just happened to me a couple of days ago. A one-year-old was waving at me in a store, and his grandma called him a little flirt. He was just being friendly. HE'S A BABY!”

Referring To Playful as Flirting

“People on Instagram and FB post such (fake) positive overly happy lives and virtue signaling nonsense that it sets unrealistic and unhealthy expectations for the easily influenced.”

Toxic Positivity

Rock_Paper_Bees confessed, “I fake being happy/friendly, but it translates to a slight boost of happiness. Yeah, I'd rather be doing anything else right now, but since I'm here, I'll smile at people because that feels nice.”

Fake Happiness at Work

Redditor tossthisoff6 responded, “When people come to your door and knock or ring the bell and then peer in the window.” Another user added, “Or when they skip the door entirely and knock on the window. It scares the heck out of the dog and me every time.”

Lookey Loos

Redditor nautius_maximus1 said, “When you're chillin' with your cat or dog at night with no one else home. And they suddenly alert and look super-alarmed like they heard something.” Several people agreed that this sentiment is a natural occurrence but creepy nonetheless.

Pet Alerts

GothWitchOfBrooklyn shared, “My boss was getting bad reviews at my last job and tried to kick it into gear with these icebreaker-type things. For example, during the pandemic over Zoom, Show everyone the last photo you took that's in your phone!”
