I was talking with someone recently about a couple of popular TV shows in the 1990s. It seems as though you are either a big fan of one and not the other, or you love the other one but not both. You might know which shows I’m talking about but I’ll give you a couple of hints. One is “I’m the holiday armadillo!” and a quote from the other show is, “She has man hands.”
Got it, yet? I’m talking about “Seinfeld” and “Friends”. Have you had conversations about these shows and whether you prefer one over the other?
It’s not just TV, though. In sports, I’ve found that often times people are stronger fans of college football than NFL, or vice versa. And this is 100% true, you either love Alabama football or you can’t stand them. There is NO in between. Kind of like Tom Brady in the NFL. Either you love him or you’re jealous of him.
It’s nearly December so how about your preferences for Christmas music? Some love it, while some keenly point out that it’s the same songs every year. I have no shame in telling you that I love Christmas music. I’ve already had it playing in my car even though we’re not past Thanksgiving yet.
These are just a few examples of things in our society that don’t seem to have a gray area. You either love one side or the other, and it’s next to impossible to be indifferent about the decision.
What are some other examples of this type of division? Chime in below!
