Ah, let’s talk about those insufferable people we all encounter at some point in our lives. You know the type – the ones who make your eyes roll so far back into your head you can practically see your own brain. They’re the people who seem to have made it their life’s mission to drain the joy out of any room they enter, the kind who could turn a sunny day into a thunderstorm with just a few choice words.
One Redditor asked, “Who are the most insufferable people to interact with?” Many users commented on this post, and we have compiled the top 20 ones for you.
1. Worshipping Politicians
A discerning Reddit user commented, “People who worship politicians.”
Another added, “Politicians feed them with the advantage they have with the information they pass through Congress; it’s always the Senate who gets first pick on any new money in every state..”
These people hang on every word their chosen politician utters like it’s the gospel truth!
You know, the people who seem to thrive on making others miserable. Whether it’s a snide remark, a backhanded compliment, or just a plain old insult, they have this special talent for making you question your faith in humanity.
A Redditor shared, “People who are cruel. Who has a need to conquer? I genuinely feel bad for them. Luckily, they are far and few.”
Another person agreed to it and said, “Cruelty is seriously such a turn-off; it tells you all you need to know about a person.”
Next up, the narcissists – the kings and queens of self-centeredness. Everything is always about them!
Someone commented, “People who embellish everything and make everything about themselves.”
Another replied, “Yeah, you know, the kind of people who always have to top your story like it’s a contest or have to act like they are God’s gift to earth. They don’t even listen to you when you are talking; they just wait their turn to talk or just outright interrupt you.”
4. Putting Others Down
One said, “People who put others down just to feel better about themselves. People who you can’t level with and are incredibly insecure.”
Another added, “I don’t believe you can put people down just for fun – people generally do that to balance some type of insecurity they’re feeling. If someone is just downright mean, they are equally insufferable.”
They have this knack for finding your insecurities and poking at them with a stick.
5. The Complainers
A discerning Reddit user commented, “People who have easily resolvable issues that they refuse to do even the slightest bit of change for.”
Another replied, “Some situations are complex, I get it, but if you’re complaining of chapped lips and you brush off any easy free solution I’ve done that worked, to keep complaining, don’t whine when I eventually just go “Uh-huh” or “Yeah that sucks.””
Nothing is ever right – the weather, their job, their food – everything is a reason to whine.
6. Useless Advice
A Redditor shared, “People who give you the most obvious and basic advice that you definitely tried if you are asking for advice. Like, the “have you tried restarting the computer, updating your drivers, or running the game in windowed mode?” kinds of people.”
Another person agreed to it and said, “I had a friend like that; even worse, she’d repeat back resolutions I already said. “I have to call back my phone company about getting my broken screen fixed, but they don’t answer the calls, and when I tried to chat, they said it probably wasn’t fixable with their warranty, so I have to find other options.”
And then she replied, “Ah! So, what you have to do is…. you should call up your phone company and see if they can fix your screen FOR you!” WOAAAAAAH. Why did I neeeeeever think of that.”
You could be discussing rocket science, and they’d chime in with some nonsensical solution that makes you wonder if they even live on the same planet as the rest of us.
7. Always Talking
Someone commented, “ppl who never stop talking.”
Another added, “My dad used to tell me I had diarrhea of the mouth. Fortunately, he’s dead, and my spouse loves to listen to me chatter.”
They talk and talk and talk without even a pause for breath.
They’re not just fans; they’re practically Disney scholars. Mention a character, and they’ll launch into a detailed biography. One said, “Adult Disney-obsessed fans.”
Another replied, “Lol, this really is a thing. I’ve worked with a couple and known others as acquaintances. Their Disney obsession is weird. Harmless as far as I know in their case. But very weird.”
9. Fake Intellects
You ask them a simple question, and suddenly, you’re in the middle of a TED Talk. But peel back the layers, and it’s all buzzwords and no substance.
A Redditor shared, “Pseudo-intellectual debate bros need to be collectively bullied into shutting up.”
Another responded, “Lol, I’ve never heard them described that way before, but I know exactly the kind of person you’re talking about. But yes, I find them quite irritating myself.”
10. Media Literacy
Now, media literacy is a thing, right? Apparently not for some people. They see a headline and treat it like gospel truth without even a second thought. Fake news? Nope, doesn’t register.
A discerning Reddit user commented, “People with poor media literacy. You can’t even prove anything to them.”
Another added, “One of the reasons young people are susceptible to misinformation is a lack of media literacy skills. And we know that poor media literacy is the reason why.”
11. Pick Me Girls
You know the type – they play this delicate damsel in distress card, hoping someone will notice and shower them with attention.
Someone commented, “The ‘Pick Me’ attitude can be quite exhausting.”
Another person agreed with it and said, “Self-worth should never be based on seeking validation from others. Pick me; girls embarrass me as a girl.”
12. Frat Bros
Frat bros, ah, the eternal kings of questionable life choices. These guys treat life like a never-ending party, complete with keg stands and questionable fashion sense.
One said, “Frat bro culture might seem fun to some, but it’s truly disgusting.”
Another replied, “Sometimes we get carried away, but we gotta remember to treat everyone with respect cause the whole culture is kinda sad, you know?”
13. Sovereign Citizens
A Redditor shared, “It’s funny how sovereign citizens think the only thing standing between somebody being allowed to do anything they want, having no responsibilities while retaining all the advantages of living in a society are some loopholes others haven’t figured out yet.”
Another added, “I don’t think that being a believer in something without questioning it is something to strive for. In searching for meaning and purpose, we should try to pick something that has a basis in reality.”
They live in this alternate universe where laws don’t apply to them. Flash them a red traffic light, and suddenly, they’re quoting obscure legal texts from 1852 to justify their right to do 90 in a school zone!
14. Being Famous
One said, “People who think they’re more famous than they are.”
Another replied, “I knew a D-list actor and some niche authors decades ago. This wise guy shows up at my front door and keeps saying threatening things and “famous people” as if that justifies trapping me in an uncomfortable conversation that he wouldn’t leave. I kept saying, “Famous to whom? No one I know knew who they were, except that they were all nasty to me.””
They walk around like the world is their red carpet, expecting applause for every move they make. News flash: your Instagram following doesn’t make you Meryl Streep.
15. Drinking Too Much
A discerning Reddit user commented, “Most 20-somethings after too much drinking while standing outside bars and clubs in any downtown area of any cities in the US.”
Another person agreed with it and said, “Excessive drinking not only harms your health but can also negatively impact your relationships and overall well-being.”
Have you ever found an alcoholic insufferable?
16. Elon Musk Fans
Mention Elon’s name, and some people’s eyes light up like they’ve just met a rockstar. They defend his every move with the fervor of a religious zealot!
A Redditor shared, “Elon Musk fans. Those are some weirdos to look out for.”
Another added, “And people who think if you say anything positive about Musk or one of his companies or products, you are de facto a Musk fanboy while ignoring any truth in anything you have said.”
17. Social Media Streamers
Now, social media streamers. Oh, how the times have changed. Everyone’s a streamer nowadays, right?
One said, “Instagram and TikTok streamers, who always need to have content.”
Another replied, “Can’t have real human interaction without thinking of their content and can’t change any of their appearances, cause they don’t want to ‘traumatize’ their followers.. (their five teenager followers and the rest are 10k bot followers they paid to have.).”
18. Calling Out Liberals
Someone commented, “People who comment ‘liberals/democrats’ to every post they can as if that’s really an insult, compared to their cult criminal leader.”
Another responded, “It’s baffling how some individuals resort to using ‘liberals’ as an insult, completely missing the point of a healthy debate.”
Newsflash: political diversity is what makes the world interesting. Let’s not reduce complex issues to a single buzzword, shall we?
Ah, Texans who think Texas is the epitome of beauty and should be its own country.
A Redditor shared, “Texans who think Texas is the most beautiful place in the universe and should be its own country, etc.”
Another added, “While not ever having left the US and most likely not even their state. Source: me, lifelong Texan who’s sick of hearing nonsense like this.”
Their state pride is admirable, but let’s not forget there’s a whole world out there with its own beauty.
A discerning Reddit user commented, “People who are just constantly negative all the time.”
Another person agreed to it and said, “Negativity can drain the energy out of any room, truly worse people to be around.”
These people see a silver lining and immediately assume it’s made of lead. They could win the lottery and still complain about the taxes.
