Normal or Nightmare? 

The Top 10 Things That Scare People Silly

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.

Broosevelt stated, “Every company creating an ecosystem requires my home address, credit card, and birthday to listen to music or use the software. So not a shred of my identity is unsold at this point.”

Runningamuck admitted, “I think it's weird that most couches don't come with washable cushion covers. Of course, everyone finds that normal, but they would think it's weird if someone just slept on a bare mattress without ever putting a sheet on it."


Redditor fuma_puma answered, “People making Instagrams for their babies and making captions as if the baby were writing it.” User cloveyou agreed, “This bothers me so much. People don't realize every single picture of their baby they post is on the Internet forever.”

One user said, “When employers reward us with an 8-hour staff retreat at work, where you are expected to share personal info all day, staff bonding.”

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.”

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.”
