14 people on the one thing that instantly makes them suspicious of someone

In movies, the ‘bad guy’ is typically pretty easy to spot. A change in lighting or ominous music is a tell-tale sign that he’s up to no good. Unfortunately, none of these obvious cues are apparent when real-life villains show up. Instead, we’re forced to discern certain actions or attitudes that tell us what kind of person we’re dealing with.

That being said, Reddit asked its audience about the one thing that instantly makes them suspicious of someone and the responses are too real.

1. kitjen describes my biggest pet peeve.

When they start using Facebook to subtly hint at how great their life has been since they discovered this amazing business opportunity.

2. ThisIsUndercover could not be more accurate.

When someone overshares every detail of their “perfect” relationship on social media. 9 out of 10 times that shits a dumpster fire.

3. ShlomoKenyatta knows a guilty person when they see one.

When they get weirdly defensive about things that are seemingly random. There’s usually something to it.

4. SleepyCoffee90 is not a fan of gossip queens.

Office Gossip. I don’t mean “Hey, did you hear about Janets new haircut?”

There is a woman at my work who will gossip all day if you let her about other people. How they are late, what they are doing and blah blah blah. She will instant message me too about it. It’s gotten so bad that I just ignore the messages, even though she sits right next to me.

If they are willing to gossip that much, they are willing to talk about you.

5. Yeah, rshacklef0rd, that doesn’t smell right.

When they offer to buy my car without seeing it while they are deployed overseas and wish to use paypal.

6. slim_jim_guy doesn’t trust people who blame the world for their problems.

If they talk about how things always seem to go wrong for them. Things like forgetting to pay a bill, getting towed, or getting fired. Typically these folks will blame their misfortune on dumb luck or other things.

Normally it means they’re kinda just sketchy or really not responsible.

7. ollieliotd is concerned when someone never takes responsibility for their actions.

When nothing is their fault. They blame faulty equipment, other people, literally anything but taking responsibility for themselves.

8. If only this happened in real life, SheBitch.

When ominous music plays every time they enter the room.

9. UsweatWhat knows these red flag words all too well.

“I’m one of the realest people you’ll ever meet.”

10. Bjornwyrm has been watching too much Monty Python.

Unexpected gifts. Such as, for example, a large wooden rabbit.

11. StuurMeJeTieten, I don’t trust that either.

When someone tries to be funny at the expense of others, especially when they’re not super close, and there might be a hint of truth what he thinks. It seems very specific, but it stands out, and once I notice this behavior I don’t trust them at all.

12. hopsandhorns is on the nose with this one.

“Oh I don’t like drama. I’m the most drama-free person you’ll ever meet.”

RUN.

13. nism0o3 is far from a one-upper.

The “one uppers”. The ones that ALWAYS have a story like yours but much better (or worse) and usually seems borderline impossible/implausible.

14. hotpoodle, that’s the biggest sign of them all.

 “All my exes are psycho”
