When people don’t believe in facts, you can try to explain to them the science behind it, but you will not necessarily succeed and there is no point in arguing. People like to do that anyway. Sometimes it’s very important, such as when it comes to huge topics like vaccination, and it’s actually useful to make the other person see it your way, but other times it’s just small little things like usage of a word or food preference.

Even though these are small things when looking at the big picture, people are wholeheartedly convinced in them and we all probably have an opinion about an insignificant thing that doesn’t coincide with what the majority thinks. It actually reveals the way you think, so Reddit user FunWithAPorpoise asked people what are their smallest hills that they’ll die on.

This fun thread went a bit viral on Reddit with almost 34k upvotes and nearly 26k people got involved in the conversation, sometimes pointing out valid truths and in other cases making you want to argue with them.

I hate this so much! It's so rude. No one cares about your conversation or your life. It's also rude to be on your phone while going through checkout at a store. Hangup and be courteous to the people waiting on you. If you can't do that stay home and browse Amazon ffs.

Just to clarify I’m from the UK so the American customer styles don’t work here very well since we are grumpy gooses. Our big stores (like supermarkets) don’t tend to have greeter anymore they will have security guards and customer service desks near by so you can ask questions. It’s the small shop that have them and they stand by the door watching you and jump on you the second you even look in the window.
