There’s a strange sort of unpleasant space that we exist in frequently.
It’s a space of discomfort, but it’s somewhere between “I fear for my safety” and “I’m just going to cringe myself into a ball.”
What horrors await us in this uncomfortable netherworld?
Let’s find out.
1. The talk.
When my boss says ” I need to talk to you when you get a minute……”, then he disappears for three hours.
2. No thank you please.
Hearing my own voice and watching a video of myself.
3. The poop parade.
Having to go to the bathroom right after someone else just went to the bathroom
4. Not my type.
Someone watching me type.
5. Not an ASMR fan, huh?
6. Skip me.
When the teacher/professor says, “Let’s go around the room and have everyone introduce themselves”
7. BOOM! BUTTS!
Out of nowhere sex scene in show/movie
8. Stare and stare alike.
When people stare at me.
9. A trickle of annoyance.
When you’re washing up and have an itch your face so you scratch it but now you can feel that awful little bit of water trickling up your arm.
It makes me so uncomfortable and on a scale of I need to sort this out right now it would be a 10.
10. A spooky feeling.
Walking into a really old person’s house for the first time.
11. Don’t look!
Being the center of attention in basically any way, shape or form.
12. Out of touch.
when people touch me for no reason
13. Brain freeze!
When someone bites into a popsicle/ice cream cone
Makes my teeth hurt and my butt cheeks clench just thinking about it
When I’m browsing in a shop and the assistant asks “is there anything I can help you with today?” …..”erm no thanks”…..”ok well I’ll be right over there if you need anything”……”cool thanks”
Bonus points if I have my headphones in and have to pull them out awkwardly because they’ve started talking to me with them in
15. The truth shall set you free.
Someone in a group setting saying something that is a lie. I’m torn between correcting it and not wanting to kill the vibe and make it a thing.
I’d imagine these would be the sorts of tormets that would await you in the mildest version of Hell.
