Top Ten Worst Things About Parties

Hey guys I just came back from a party and quite frankly it sucks. Having social anxiety didn't help my case.
The Top Ten
1 The noise

Depends on what party it is. I have social anxiety too and whenever I have to go to one of these things I probably just end up socializing with some adults. Other than that yeah they can be boring.

I hate it when the music way too laud, because if someone talking to me I can't hear what they're saying and I'm the dumbest when it comes to reading lips.

Why did I have to sit too close to the loudspeakers? Oh that reminds me, the reason for that is on this list too.

My family is very loud, so much that I have to go into the other room

2 Awkward conversations

I got invited to a party so I went, and I only really knew the person who invited me. I mean, I knew other people, but they all made it very obvious that they didn't like me, so I just talked to little kids the whole time.

The grownups usually talk about us kids and how we are bad, crazy, weird, and other embarrassing stuff about us, etc...

Especially with people you don't know.

Or awkwardly avoiding conversations.

3 The music selection sucks

It's always the same: mainstream pop and rap. Basically everything you hear on the radio everyday. Like, can't you be original or something. The worst is, don't even think about changing the song to rock or metal, they are just going to tell you that's it's too loud or that it's weird.

Probably play pop music all the time, because metal and rock might be too loud. Every music genre can be loud if you play it at a party.

Old pop songs? It's usually the 5 same new pop songs they play. I once left a party because I thought the music sucked, which was that Meghan Trainor song repeated 5 times in a row. Doesn't sound that bad, but it really was.

I walked out of a dance party and didn't come back in because they were only playing the dumbest of pop songs at max level. I was so sick after the party.

4 Being forced to participate in events when you know you are no good at them

No, I don't to sing karaoke in front of a bunch of old Asian people at a restaurant in Chinatown. I am a HORRIBLE SINGER!

I had to play freeze dance, and a group of kids just wouldn't stop touching me.

I had to when I was like 10 at the wedding and I like no and my mom slap me! No joke

Why should I dance? I use my feet for driving, seriously.

5 Not knowing anybody there

A few days ago I was at a family party and there was an Asian guy there that I don't even know but everyone else knew him. When I asked my parents about him my dad said that he was a friend and my mom said that we don't know him.

Who was that guy and what was he doing at the party anyway?

I come from a large family, so I barely know ANY of my relatives

I always get scared of them sometimes when this happens

THANKS A LOT MOM!

6 Being assigned to a seat

This is for the formal parties and the weddings. They make you sit somewhere when you could just sit anywhere in regular occasions. As I said before, I sat close to a LOUDSPEAKER and almost had a seizure because of the damn music.

I'm 26 and I have to sit at the KIDS' TABLE...

7 They take way too long

I had to go to a wedding in Mexico, and the after party just dragged on. Once everyone was done eating, it was dance time. However, the dancing dragged on for hours, and my family just left before they could even cut the cake.

At my stepaunt's house (although she doesn't deserve to be called that because she's horrible to my stepmum) you can only have 3 sweet things and you MUST have savoury first! I mean what!

That can be horrible. One solution only: make sure there are enough drinks.

I just don't like when boring parties is too long to end

8 Annoying people

You know, your younger cousins who always follow you around and look like they admire you and always bother you and ask questions every 30 seconds? Annoying!

Once I was at a party with my dad's side of the family. I was playing with my phone and listening to music and then one of my older cousins decided to take my phone and won't give it back until I went home. There was also a T.V. but I am not allowed to watch it so I ended up being nearly bored to death for the next half an hour or so.

People I don't like follow me around saying "Hey you wanna hang? " Me:"No thanks." Them " OK I'll just follow you until you change your mind."

They drive me crazy!

9 The food sucks

My family's Asian. The food at my family parties are good, but they are really repetitive. Every single family party I attend, there is AT LEAST ONE ASIAN DISH. No matter if it's a birthday, gathering because family is visiting, or even a wedding or a holiday, it's Asian food, Asian food, and EVEN MORE Asian food. ALL THE TIME. (mostly Chinese and Vietnamese food). Last Thanksgiving, besides the turkey dinner, guess what we had for dessert: Taro cake from Chinatown (Asian food even with American food).

I don't think there is any party that I've attended in my whole entire life that I saw ZERO Asian food being served.

If you were like me and went to a party with predominant Asian cuisine and you don't like that kinda food you'd end up either starving or trying to eat it and throwing up (the latter happened to me).

My family makes German and Polish food, but I dislike some of it. My grandma is a good cook, though

I really hate going to wedding parties because I don't like the foods

10 Drunks

One time, my cousin got drunk at a wedding and was dancing inappropriately. It was very embarrassing

Was that person drunk?!

That’s why I don’t go often to a party. Drunk people are annoying.

Asian men+beer=this

The Contenders
11 No video game time

I'm not that social either accept if its about video games that I play and they play too. I'm way better talking to people over texting on playstation or on a phone.

Although you could play with your iPhone or whatever, I'd be much more comfortable at home playing on my PC or console.

I'd rather be stuck in that Battletoads level than go to a generic party...

We play video games during parties

12 Arguments

(At a Chinese restaurant with a karaoke machine)

Me: I want to play Andy Lau songs

Dad: no we will play Chinese songs that old people like

This is why I bring my own music to parties.

My family always argues over politics

13 People taking pictures and videos everywhere

Once at a party my cousins and I were eating and then my aunt decided to take a video of us and we were like "CAN'T WE JUST EAT IN PEACE? JEEZ! "

14 Clowns

Scary clowns at kids birthday parties? I've never found clowns scary but a lot of kids had so I will just call clowns "scary". There can sometimes be " scary" clowns at kids birthday parties.

What kind of scray-ass clowns came to your birthday?

15 There’s nothing to do

Family parties are the worst. If a relative talks to me it's always "Oh look how tall you are! " "So, how it's going at school/college? " or them talking to me about something that happened when they we're younger.

At family parties no one talks to me and I just play with my phone the whole time

16 Cleaning up after
17 Grinding

Just...no. I'm the type of guy that avoids this.

18 Fighting

#9 is the cause for this most of the time.

19 Hangovers
20 You're favorite people didn't come

My favorite relatives live ACROSS THE COUNTRY so they can't attend every party that I go to.

21 Having to dress up

As said before depends on the party. If it's like an informal picnic thing then you can wear regular clothes, but if it's like a wedding then yeah you have to dress up in formal clothes you don't like.

I am female and I hate wearing dresses and pantyhose and high heels but I have no choice. I prefer suits.

At my first holy communion I wore a really fat poofy white dress and everyone thought I was gorgeous

If you're at a wedding, you have no choice. Prom is...optional...I guess...I'm sorry, I've never been to a prom.

22 When they end

It's so silent at that place after a party had just ended and it starts to feel silent and uncomfortable that you wished the party lasted longer. You feel the state of loneliness and want to party again.

NO FAIR I WANNA PARTY ALL NIGHT LONG! :(

23 No doggie bags
24 People ignoring you

It is so boring. The grownups talks to each other and my cousins and sister hang out together. I get bored easily because of this.

25 Having to bring food

There’s 1 good thing about it. You get to take food home in return. Last Thanksgiving my family brought a honey ham. We were the only ones to bring food. Later that night, we were the only ones who got to take home leftovers
