My husband told me early on in our relationship he didn’t like cake. I thought this was weird at first, but then I realized that I just accepted that cake was good because it was only offered at happy events. With exceedingly rare exception it’s just doesn’t taste good and I don’t like it either.
Doesn’t matter if it’s in cupcake form or cake-pop form, it’s all just disgusting.
The only form of cake I eat now is ice cream cake from Dairy Queen - because it had no cake in it.
EDIT: I created my account 4 days ago because I was just, "why not?" and this seems like a good addition to r/unpopularopinions because there are a lot of you who don't get it. When I was popping through this subreddit before I posted I had a very difficult time understanding the person who liked to sleep in jeans, like really could not imagine someone would like that, which is why I upvoted that post.
I have eaten quite a few cakes in my time, home-made, grocery-bought, bakery-bought, special-cupcake-store-bought, fancy wedding cake, cake made by a pastry chef in a home kitchen, and I have not liked any of them. It's true that there might be that one actual cake out there that I like, but it has eluded me thus far.
To be clear, my husband didn't make me dislike cake, he allowed me to realize that I disliked it. I have always disliked it, but I have always felt the obligation to eat it because it was a "happy food," everyone talks about how good cake is, how celebratory it is, how they look forward to it, and I never knew anyone who disliked cake (silly, but valid, reason that representation matters). No one ever asked me if I wanted cake at a party, it was always assumed that of course I wanted cake. I didn't have any deep thoughts about it beforehand, I just felt like at a party I had to eat it because that's what one does/did. Now I know I don't like it and pass it on/pass on it, even if I do get a weird look when I do.
I think it would be cool if someone else, beside myself, would serve something else at parties. Give me brownies! Give me pie! Give me donuts!
Summary: Cake is gross. Edit Summary: Yes, I really think cake is gross.
I'm a professional housecleaner in a large city. My first house today was beautiful and pretty big (4,000+ sq ft.) I had never cleaned this house before today.
It's kind of interesting to clean the home of people you have never actually met while they are not home. I never snoop but I do learn about people just by the state of their house or whatever is out. These people seemed like they really needed us. I would guess they are busy and don't have much time for cleaning and organizing (but definitely have an active sex life judging by the master bedroom).
I love cleaning dirty houses and was like amping myself up doing a mini Rocky training montage warmup and finding the perfect music to work to (Pantera). I was sweating like 4 hours in but I was getting this house spar👏ka👏ling! All I had left to clean were the floors when a man walked in.
I welcomed him home and let him know I just needed to clean the floors and would be finished soon. He looked super confused and then kind of grinned and asked if I was his birthday gift. I didn't really know what he meant. Maybe his wife scheduled the service on his birthday? I just answered with, "maybe? Happy birthday, Mr. Henricks!" To which he looked even more confused and told me his name was not Henricks.
Well. That's because his next door neighbor, my actual client, is Mr. Henricks. I walked my happy ass into the wrong fucking house and cleaned the hell out of it. And then the guy who lived there came home and thought I was a sex worker role playing as a housecleaner hired by his wife as a birthday present.
I was so totally embarrassed explaining myself to this guy and my boss. (The entry instructions in the app said the client wouldn't be home but that there was a key under the mat. There was no key under the mat but the front door was unlocked 🤦♀️). This is not even the first time in my life that I have let myself into the wrong house, although the first time was not a work thing.
On the plus side, dude was so happy with how clean his house was that I finished the floors and he paid me what my company would have charged him plus a tip!
TL;DR; I disappointed a man who wanted to get laid by a maid.

TIL about Secessio Plebis which was a form of revolt first introduced in ancient Rome. When the ruling class of Rome would become too corrupt or unjust to the commoners, the commoners would band together, evacuate the entire city and leave the elites to fend for themselves.historydaily.org
Saw this post https://www.reddit.com/r/memes/comments/utuz6l/motivational/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf and I was curious about why so many people were saying the timing of these allegations and Elon’s tweets about being “smeared” by democrats because he’s going to vote Republican is odd? Not on twitter so I’m massively confused.
