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?

Couples who keep having kids even though they can't afford them...

and then rely on EBT to support them.

or drugged out moms who get pregnant again and again.

single moms who have their children meet guy after guy.

single moms who exclude the dad from their lfie completely even though he pays child support.

The bus thing--seriously? Pregnant women can stand. I didn't expect ppl to give up seats for me. If they did it was nice but I didn't ASSUME that they would or should or are obliged to. pregnant women aren't diabled. What if they're elderly or ill or (gulp) just not noticing a pregnant woman? Seriously pregnant women are not the center of the unvierse.

People who gripe and whine about how they can't afford ags and borrow from mom and pop but then their kid is wearing designer jeans.

People who claim to have it "so ahrd" as single aprents but lvie with their aprents. I'm sorry but if you have a FREE roof over your ehad, then you have it VERY easy.

All that comes to mind is, "Judge not lest ye be judged."

I think that list is ridiculous and offensive. I am not the judge of others. Not my job.

Takes a lot for me to judge someone, but in light of recent things in my life, I can admit to a few.

- People who refuse to keep their kids clean.  I'm not talking shining and sparkling, but if your kid is running around with feces on their dress, that's gross.  If your kid has more than 50% of his face covered in snot and dirt, that's gross.  A washrag across the face takes 3 seconds.  Just do it. 

- People who hit pregnant women.

-People who are pregnant who allow the person that hit them while pregnant back into their lives because "he was drunk, he didn't know better, he loves me, what would i do without him, I can't be alone, he is in a bad place right now"

How about spending a little less time judging and more time accepting. As parents, we all talk about how we want to raise accepting, tolerant children, yet we expose them to a constant barage of judging. Children learn what they live and they will pick up on your attitudes towards certain people, even if it is through your unspoken body language. No human being on this earth is perfect, and until they are, they have no right to judge.

People who judge strangers without knowing their circumstances.
