I don't get Uggs - I think they are hideous looking and expensive, and personally I hate looking like/wearing things that everyone else seems to be, although I do like fashion. It took me years to wear skinny jeans, but now I love them and live in them.
I don't get resealable chocolate pouches - never going to be enough left to reseal the packet!
Oh and animal hats on adults - wrong!

Agree with all of them I don't wear skinny jeans though as they just look awful on my fat thighs

I don't get Twilight, I find films that aren't able to happen irl pointless tbh. The matrix is another one. And I think R Patts is Ming ding
25/01/2013 at 10:27
Twilight/Harry potter/dr who
25/01/2013 at 10:29
Oh yes the twilight/harry potter etc.
DD - No way - I have thunder thighs and can wear them!
25/01/2013 at 10:33
I don't get Uggs either! I call them Fuggs as in F'in Ugly boots Not really a follower of fashion though and dance to my own tune so don't always 'get' what other people get, like Pandora bracelets, that's another one!
25/01/2013 at 10:35
O yes I don't get pandora bracelets. Apols to anyone who has one but I just think everyone has them now.
25/01/2013 at 10:37
Aww see Uggs are ugly but my god they are comfy!
I don't get Nike Air Max, but have just bought K some.
I don't get why everyone gets so het up about the whole BF / FF thing. Just leave people alone to make their own choices.
I don't get Paul's Boutique.

I'm glad it's not just me CP! All the girls I work with seem to have them and every birthday we all put in for resents and they all want these weird looking charms. I invariably end up doing the shopping for them and have to stand in the shop behind a velvet rope until the greeter person,lets you in! Just don't get the appeal of them at all!
25/01/2013 at 10:39
I don't get Pandora either, They look heavy and clankey. They are shiny, Ill give them that,
I don't get Towie, jersery shore, etc, I just don't see what's amusing/clever about glorifying being thick, promiscuous and usually pretty rude.
25/01/2013 at 10:40
Oh some more, Mrs Browns Boys & Ant & Dec. You're not funny.
25/01/2013 at 10:41
Yes I don't understand towie. In fact I'm still not sure if its meant to be comedy or real life lol
25/01/2013 at 10:42
O there's so many of these , belle I can't stand mrs browns boys! Everyone I know creases up watching it whereas I sit and have no idea what they are laughing at lol
25/01/2013 at 10:44
Belle, i like Mrs Browns Boys, The fact that they can barely get through a show without laughing makes it for me.
CP - I dont know either, they claim its not scripted and real life, Then they say the show producers, "create" situations, Therefore surely not real life? = Confused of Co Durham
25/01/2013 at 10:48
I'm agreeing with a lot of these! Mainly Uggs, Towie, and the BF/FF debate and why people get so uptight about how others feed their babies...fair enough if they were feeding them poison or something. I hate Big Brother, the jungle, anything like that.
Ooohh perhaps a controversial one - Center Parcs - I think we are the only family I know who didn't like it and will never ever go back!
25/01/2013 at 11:27
Miranda - i don't get her. She's not funny, i watched her show last week as i'd heard Gary Barlow was on, but it was a waste of half an hour. However i think as Chummey in Call the Midwife i love her.
Uggs - i didn't get them at first, however i now have a pair and they are the best things i own. I'm on my 3rd winter with them, and they still look good as new.
Pandora bracelets - overpriced, and aren't actually that nice. Much prefer the old style charm bracelet.
Any of the chavvy reality TV shows - can't stand them, TOWIE/Made in Chelsea/ Geordie shore etc, just make the teenagers think that these people are role models.

LindtBunny, I refuse to pay the prices for CP, when i can get a caravan holiday for £99! Along the same lines, Butlins, didn't like it.
25/01/2013 at 12:17
All of these!! The only reality type thing I watch is Strictly, never really got the appeal of BB or the jungle thing. Have never fancied Centre Parcs either, not sure why?!
25/01/2013 at 12:18
Waah. I'm such a sheep, I like most of those things apart from Mrs Browns boys. I've got links of London, but had it for years. Center Parks looks crap to me, give me a cheesy Haven anytime
25/01/2013 at 12:44
I agree with most of these, Uggs, Mrs Browns Boys, BB, Jungle etc.
To add, I don't get X Factor/BGT, Paul's Boutique, Primark (stuff I buy never washes up well and my local store looks like they been burgled within 5 minutes of opening so you can never find anything that hasn't been dragged under a pushchair), Urban Outfitters. Centre Parcs makes me feel far too unhealthy, with all the bikes and outdoor activities (I will walk and camp if I'm forced will strop if you hand me a bow and arrow!).
Working with a bunch of designer label obsessed people, I would love to say I don't get labels. Whilst I don't understand a lot of current fashion (how I got and have managed to keep my job is beyond me) there are some things that I would just love. An original Louis V for example. Or maybe an Alexander McQueen scarf. I also prefer Thomas Sabo to Pandora.
