20 People Share Situations That Made Them Instantly Despise Someone They Liked

by Damjan

For most people, a period around New Year is a time for resolutions and retrospective. One can’t go without the other. We remember what we did and said, what others did and said to us.

Unfortunately, there are many occasions where people we liked, loved, or trusted, totally blew it with words or actions. Of course, the less you think of a person, the less it can hurt you. But when it is someone who you consider close… it can and will be a terrible experience. 

People on Reddit shared their experiences, and it is amazing to see how fast you can go from caring about someone to despising them. Sadly, it is all well deserved.

I waited for hours and they never showed up… next day I overhear my best childhood friend laughing about how annoying I was and that they had to hide from me to play in peace. That really hurt.” — tatychann

4. Some people shouldn’t be allowed to talk

“Was dating a girl for a few months and things were going great until somehow Jews came up in conversation. She went full ‘Jews control the world’ and wouldn’t accept that non-jews take any responsibility for anything that ever went wrong in the [Middle East]. I just saw her in a whole new light.” — Achterhaven

5."15 years later hes in prison for armed robbery"

“When I was younger I found out one of my childhood friends was stealing from me and the friendship group. Every so often we would ‘lose’ a phone or Ipod then said friend would have conveniently got the same model but beat it up a bit with his initials in tipex or something stupid. Being a good friend we didn’t want to believe it but we started putting distinct markings on our items. Low and behold my phone goes missing and he turns up with the same one a few weeks later with the markings. We brought him up on it but he just lost his temper and stormed off. 15 years later hes in prison for armed robbery….” — Snow776

6. Shame on her for dying.

“The first girl I ever dated died unexpectedly on my then current gf and my’s 3 year anniversary. My then gf stated she was pissed because my ex had “Died on purpose that day because it was our anniversary”. I was utterly disgusted and it completely changed how I viewed her all together. Things fell apart shortly after and we broke up.” — JudgementalChair

When I was having a full on panic attack and almost killing myself out of guilt he told me it was a prank and the two friends asked me if I wanted dtk have a threesome.” — yeetyeetgirl

11. No soul.

“Coworker had a dog who she let run free on her property. Said dog liked to chase cars. So it was only a matter of time, and the dog was hit. Dog couldn’t walk for two days, was dragging herself around for days after that. We told her to bring her to the vet, and she refused, because it was too expensive. We pulled together the money and told her, bring your damn dog to the vet. And she did. The dog’s bones in her legs and pelvis were shattered and the dog had no chance of recovering. Coworker finally let the poor thing die peacefully. So anyhow, it was $50 to put this dog to sleep. And since then, every time my coworker spends money on something frivilous and shows us (novelty socks, collectibles, an expensive cake, another fucking pet) I think about how she decided bringing comfort to a dying animal wasn’t worth paying for.” — fuckmeup5gum

14. Some friend.

I go to the toilet to text a bit with friends from other school, he goes to the parking lot and scratches the teachers car. School break and the teacher finds his car, we both get called to the director etc etc. Friend said that we both scratched the car. Í showed the teacher my phone to show him I was texting and couldnt have scratches his car, told friend to fuck off and went out.” — RicyHub

“When he became angry with me about something trivial (agreed to disagree instead of conceding to him) and then he proceeded to tell me he should beat the shit out of me because of it. Yeah, no. Done.” — Swinella

16. Yeah, it happens. Accidentally.

20. Must be some family name.

When we had a child of our own (who was a girl) and decided we were done having kids; His mother said to me it’s a-shame we aren’t having more kids, As she would have liked someone to carry on the family name. I have only tolerated her at holidays ever since.” — tla07412
