“Ear gages. Maybe it’s because they weren’t allowed when I was in service, but seeing folk who had them back in the day with these long holes now relieves me that I didn’t take the plunge.”

A user said, “Mullet haircuts. I cannot understand how they have been allowed to come back in recent times.”

Another added, “Mullets. I will never believe they were actually in. Nobody in the history of ever has thought they looked good. At best, a beautiful person with the right hair type can pull off a slight mullet.”

“Overpriced pants that are already ripped or just wearing tattered pants. Once my jeans are that far gone, they are house and housework pants. Other than that, there is not much wrong with them.”

“Reality Television. The term is an oxymoron. Many times, unacceptable behavior is displayed, and many audience members perceive this behavior as acceptable because it is on Television. 

It is contributing to a downturn in society as a whole. Bad behavior in public, tattoos, and piercings, to name a few, are popularized. 

The sad thing is that it won’t go away anytime soon. For the networks, it is dirt cheap to produce. The shows write themselves as long as there is controversy and suggestive behavior. 

Then, the networks edit it in such a way as to make it even worse. The audience, being the lowest common denominator in society, is quite large and will keep the ratings high. It’s a giant dumpster fire with a huge audience lacking imagination.”

“Lip fillers. What’s up with that? It looks very unnatural. Of course, people can do what they want; they’re only affecting themselves, but I’m confident this fad will not last.

“Filming strangers. People’s lives have been ruined over what some see as just a silly TikTok video. Also, street interviews. The interviewer is always condescending, and the random stranger always seems uncomfortable.”

“Wearing hefty make-up. I mean, look. It’s your face and money, so I’m not trying to be hypercritical; I just don’t get it. I (42) was taught to apply makeup in a way that accentuates my features, minimizes my flaws, and generally looks pretty natural. 

My little sister (31) and her friends did the cake-face thing, and almost all of my female colleagues when I worked in Dallas. Babygirl, I should not be able to see your contouring from 50 feet away. The task of blank-canvasing your entire face with heavy foundation so that you can recreate all the natural hues you covered up? Why?

I remember hanging out before my sister’s wedding while all the girls were getting their makeup done (I did not because $); one of them mentioned that it typically takes them about 2 hours to get ready to leave the house. I don’t understand!”

“Influencer. Did everyone just begin to ‘appreciate’ selling out? It doesn’t get more obvious than selling products for companies. Jesus, this generation is weird!”

“Grillz. Even at a basic level, they must be far more uncomfortable than the attempted statement. No thanks, but I would be curious to understand the hype.
