While there are countless things that people grow to appreciate as they get older, it’s way more fun to complain about the things people start hating more and more as they age! Recently, men and women met in an online discussion to reveal everything they started disliking as soon as they reached a certain age.
Grocery Store Remodels
Everyone can relate to hating grocery store remodels, regardless of how old you are! Is there anything worse than having to re-learn the layout of a supermarket all over again? Everything you’ve trained yourself to know has changed in the blink of an eye. Sure, you can re-learn where things are – until they change the store again.
Thanks to the convenience of ordering products and items online, many people confess they can avoid one of their most-disliked things: Crowded stores. “If I can order it on Amazon and avoid going to a place like Home Depot, Lowes, Target, or Wal-Mart, I am totally doing it,” reports one man. “I want nothing to do with large stores packed with people.”
Every new movie released seems like another sequel or remake, leading countless moviegoers to be disappointed with films as they age. According to these people, the art of storytelling and filmmaking is lost on the current generation of artists. In 2023, movies seem to be created solely to make money and not tell extraordinary stories.
If you don’t like online dating when you’re younger, you’re really not going to like it when you’re older! “Online dating seems to be the main option, but it’s so dehumanizing and shallow,” laments one man. “It’s very hard to get a feel of a person with a few pictures and whatever info they decide to provide. I know it’s hard in general for single people, but I hate it the older I get, and I’m not getting younger.”
Going to Concerts
Countless people sadly confess that their love for music hasn’t waned with age, but their willingness to go to concerts has! Between dealing with the crowds, the overpriced food and beverages, the parking, and the constant loud noises, experiencing live music is something they’ve learned to live without.
Surprisingly, many people admit that they aren’t as enamored with fireworks as they were when they were younger. In a way, this makes sense — fireworks’ technology hasn’t changed since they were first invented.
One woman believes that food trucks used to be an underrated way to have a fantastic meal, which has changed in recent years. “Once upon a time, you could get something new and delicious for a good deal,” she explains.
“Now it’s pricier than dining in somewhere, there are long wait times, and the food is almost always underwhelming. I can count on one hand the time I’ve had something from a food truck and was genuinely blown away by what I was eating.”
Traveling By Airplane
Flying hasn’t been the glamorous and preferred method of travel for quite some time now, and it isn’t getting any better. Many people say they fell out of love with flying long ago, preferring to drive to their destinations instead. These people have a point: Does anyone enjoy going to the airport these days?
The thrill of buying something you’ll enjoy seems to wear off as you grow older. “I used to love the novelty of getting new things, like cars,” confesses one man. “Now it’s all an intellectual exercise to decide and to make sure I’m not wasting money and making sound financial decisions and loathing having to spend money.” As someone who second-guesses every purchase I make, I can relate to this guy!
Pointless Phone Apps
Every company and person seems to have an app they want you to use these days. From banks to doctors to pharmacies, many people feel that these companies are trying to push out face-to-face business and replace it with cold interactions via mobile devices.
