30 Kinds of People We Just Can't Stop Judging

Posted by Maressa Brown on January 30, 2013

long fingernailsBlame human nature. No matter how "nice" we want to be 24/7/365, sometimes, we just can't help letting our own hang-ups, lifestyles, backgrounds, or tastes influence how we see others. Or should I say, how we judge others?

Be honest: Whether we "mean to," "want to," or not, we all do it. When we're walking down the street, waiting in line at the store, or simply driving around town, it's impossible not to occasionally find yourself completely turned-off by someone else and labeling them in your head. Even little, not-so-obvious reasons could have us rolling our eyes. Here are 30 people who are just asking to be negatively judged based on their behavior or appearance ... and who we're ashamed to admit we judge. But we do.

  1. People who smoke. It's 2013, not 1950. We know too much about the health consequences of this nasty habit to keep thinking it's a good idea. Or an acceptable behavior around others who might not want to be subjected to secondhand smoke.
  2. People who drink lots of soda. Don't they know it's filled with high fructose corn syrup and chemicals that are rotting them from the inside out?
  3. People who perpetually eat junk food. See #2.
  4. People who have "too many kids." Seriously, are they trying to be the next Duggars or what?
  5. People who own guns.
  6. Women who wear tons of perfume/layers of makeup. What are they hiding under there?!
  7. Women who have overly long, painted fingernails -- particularly with nail art. Aren't there less icky ways of expressing yourself?
  8. Men with even slightly long fingernails and/or toenails. Eww, ever hear of personal hygiene?
  9. People who use poor grammar/spelling in an obviously lazy way. Failing to show you have a grasp on the English language is sure to do the opposite of impress.
  10. People who update their Facebook status constantly. Way to be totally self-obsessed!
  11. People who take the elevator up one floor. Really?! Take. The. Stairs.
  12. People who carry an ill-fitting, unkempt smartphone case. Kiiiinda screams "slob."
  13. People who keep a really messy (which, admittedly, is totally relative) home. Kiiinda screams "hoarder."
  14. People who are obese or have obese children. Sad one, but oh so true.
  15. People who won't recycle, even when it's really easy to. Globe-killing litter bugs!
  16. Restaurant-goers who say "let me get ..." or "gimme the ..." as opposed to "I would like ..." or "may I have ..." Have some manners!
  17. Self-righteous people who refuse to believe scientific evidence that contradicts what their faith tells them to believe.
  18. People who refuse to give up their seat for a pregnant woman on public transportation. Self-centered jerks!
  19. Public transportation users who lean on/"hump" the pole on the subway. So other people can't use it to hold on. Self-centered jerks!
  20. Republican, aka "conservative," FOX News-loving voters. (Applicable only to those who vote Democrat.) What are they thinking?!
  21. Democrat, aka "liberal," hippie voters. (Applicable only to those who vote Republican.) What are they thinking?!
  22. Gym-goers who don't to wipe down exercise machines after use. Gross.
  23. People who don't wash their hands in a public restroom. Shudder.
  24. Public transit users who sit on the outside seat ... and then act incredulous that they have to move when you ask to sit down.
  25. People who swear/curse profusely. Especially in front of kids.
  26. Anyone with a persistent, heavy, rattling sniff in a movie theater or other public place. Get a tissue!
  27. Vacationers who vacation only at Disney World. Helllooo, haven't these people ever considered broadening their horizons?
  28. People who can't stop driving and texting or walking and texting or movie-watching and texting, etc. Cut it out!
  29. People who neglect to hold the door for anyone (especially women/children). Have a little human decency, whydontcha?
  30. People who refuse to thank someone who holds the door for them. Common courtesy must be completely dead.

Be honest: What do you negatively judge others on?

I truly only judge those who spend too much time judging others. 

I am extremely laid back, I love people for who they are. I may not agree with their choices but I'm not gonna sit here like Oh. My. God. Becky, she fed her kids hot dogs.

But something about other people getting nasty makes me feel really sorry for them lol. 

So, I guess, I judge you if you judge others so I'm basically judging myself 0.0

I judge most of the things listed in the OP. A few don't apply to me.



I also judge parents who neglect/abuse their children, parents who don't abide by the car seat laws, and people who stupidly spend their money and then complain when they don't have money for the important things



I guess I'm just one judgey bitch... Although I mostly keep my opinions go myself.

Wow.... this is bound to get ugly. 

I guess if I have to choose, it would be 14 but then I always think well it could be medical. I DO judge those that have their kids running around coughing and sneezing on others. If it is obvious to strangers that your kid is sick, why is it not to you? Also, those parents that give their kids too much space. Watch your kid!

This! I don't agree with a lot on this list because sometimes there is a very good reason behind it. Example, taking the elevator one floor, how do you know if they can handle stairs? My mom has terrible knees from a past injury and never takes stairs. Or people who smoke/eat junk/ drink soda. Who cares what they do? It's none of your business. The cluttered house, some people (me as a prime example) don't have a lot of storage. I live in a two bedroom apartment with 5 closets, one being a tiny linen closet. I'm an artist and DF works with computers so I have to keep all my supplies and all his computer parts in the closets away from our toddler which means a lot gets pushed against walls and piled up in bedrooms. It's not that we're slobs, we just need more room. I try not to judge anyone until I know more about it. It's not fair and I certainly wouldn't want anyone to judge me for my actions or appearance. If I look like crap, well it's because I work full time, have a toddler and medical issues that make me feel like death most days.

I ONLY judge fat people... if they preach about healthy eating... what kind of things they do to try to lose weight that are riduculous..... like.... saving 4 bites of food on your plate... or act like they learned a bunch of shit from The Biggest Loser.... yet... never excersize.. never cook anything at home and order out at lunch from restraunts and get the most fatty stuff possible. :)
