What do you HATE more than anything else in the world?

Since I've been called a generally negative person there's plenty of contenders for this, but given that I love cats more than anything else in the world the thing I have to say I hate most is the idea that cats or any other animals that can't find homes should be euthanized. I hate the idea that if I visit an animal shelter and see plenty of cute pets that I just don't have the room for, they might be killed later. Thankfully that seems to be declining these days, with "no-kill shelters" becoming a thing.

Honorable mentions:

People who know less about something than I do telling me what to do

Being wrongfully punished for a crime they did not commit, or committing a serious crime (such as murder) and not being punished for it

Judging or jumping to conclusions about someone without hearing all the facts, or interrupting them when they try to give them

Ants. I wake up this morning to find them all over my kitchen counter, for nothing. There is no food out or anything, they are all just wandering around looking stupid. I hate them more than anything in the world. They serve no purpose other than to aggravate.

Mosquitos.

Mosquitos and Steeler fans who have never set foot in SW Pennsylvania, much less who can actually spell Pennsylvania. Them and mosquitos.

But mostly mosquitos.

Barely.

And no matter how clean you are, if they appear, it just makes your house feel disgusting and you want to firebomb it. Ants inside the house gross me out so much.

The sun. I understand the absolute necessity of it, but I hate it. Overcast or rainy puts me in such a relaxed mood.

I always hated the fact that the longest period off from school growing up was the Summer. There isn't a worse period of the year if you live in the south.

Ticks. They freak. me. out. I read recently they don't wait for you on tree branches, which was a huge relief. I used to get so jumpy mowing the lawn under the tree in our front yard, thinking they were just waiting to drop down on me like little army rangers rapelling from the branches above. The last time I had a tick I was 7 years old, but the horror remains.

Stuff like injustice and poverty.

And overcooked asparagus. And lutefisk. And natto.

Lol. Luckily these are all fairly avoidable. If you're running into unwanted natto regularly, I want to switch lives with you.

I was going to answer "nothing", but this: people who ask me to do something then immediately produce barriers to success.

I hate my next door neighbor. She's made my life worse than it should be. The most inconsiderate person I've ever encountered in my entire life.

Agreed. Not sure hate is the proper word, but it really annoys. They ask you related to your area of skill and expertise and then the barriers. I call them out on it.

I hate that I allow anxiety and fear to dominate my life. I had a massive panic attack on a trip a few years ago and I haven’t been the same since.

Re: What do you HATE more than anything else in the world?

Fleas - first experienced them when I lived in an apartment complex about 15 years ago. I donít have any pets, but I suspect someone let a cat inside the apt gym room and I picked up some fleas from there.

That was a total nightmare. I have my own house now, so no more community gym and fleas!

I'm in total celestral alignment with your view. I HATE the sun, the heat, and the hot climate the most of anything in this life. If I was in a constantly dark and overcast climate, I'd be in pure bliss, and it would be a heavenly existence. Perfect temperature: 55 to 60 year-round during the day, and 40-45 during the night. And some rain or mist almost every day would be like manna from the gods. I would NEVER grow tired of it. No summer, No DST, and no need to spend $$$$ on ridiculous, loud AC 24/7 for months of the year.

Oh, and yes, ants are awful. I HATE them, spiders, and mosquitos.

Finally, when talking generally, I hate ignorance, stupidity, and man's seemingly innate greedy and spendthift nature, lack of conservation, and shallowness. We have to WORK to circumvent these hateful things...

Re: What do you HATE more than anything else in the world?

Michael Corvin, may I ask why you included cats? You certainly have the right to that opinion but I'm just curious. Cats are what I LOVE more than anything in the world. At times they are my main reason for existing. (I don't hate dogs, but my personality and theirs just doesn't match as well.)

I would gladly be up all night and sleep during the day if I could get a good job with those hours. I don't really hate the sun but I certainly like it better when it's on the other side of the planet.
