I prefer the "Nice shirt, do they make em for blokes?"
A simple but timeless classic.

You're supposed to just know by the time you are an adult how it works. I give you shit, you give me shit, and the cycle continues. Someone comes out with a zinger, if you are quick you get them back. Etc.

There's different types of shit banter too. Lame comebacks, trying to use the same joke without putting your own twist on it (you are, no you are), painfully explaining the joke, and of course the awkward silence ensuing person who takes things wayyy too far.

'She's hot'
'Not as hot as ya sister mate, eh? eh?'
'His mum's even hotter!'
'Yeah well I hope your house burns down with all of your family in it and you have to watch your mum and sister burn'
'Jesus mate...'

The Office wins once again for classic cringey:

GK: Can't you discipline him? Ooh, kinky! The thing about practical jokes, you've got to know when to stop, and now's the time to stop putting Gareth's possessions in jelly.
TC: Gareth, it's a trifling matter.
DB: Here we go.
DB: Always like this.
Temp: You should put him in custard-y! He's going to fit in.
DB: We're like Vic and Bob and an extra one.
Oh, God.
Yeah.
GK: I'm more worried really about damage to company property.
DB: Trifling.
I'm just trying to think of other desserts to do.

People don't get/can't do banter.

*person wears garish shirt*
'Nice shirt, you know Mardi Gras isn't for a few months right?'
'You would know that because you are gay and like to have sex with men'
*facepalm*
I don't see the problem with this?

People who film themselves giving to the homeless
How about the ones who give money to homeless people or those who 'accidentally' drop money in front of homeless people and then record them to see what they do with the money?

then they often finish off the video with some tag along the lines of "these people have nothing and they STILL put others before themselves", as if imparting some sort of moral lesson to the rest of us fiery, unsalvageable freaks

kinda revolting seeing how low the current fleet of brainless youtubers/influencers will stoop for views

on that note. What makes me cringe.

Watching FTA news, game shows, MKR or those quarter time breaks at a match and being bombarded with shit like Cash Cow, I Wake Up With Today, or some variant of "whoever torps it the furthest/cooks the best dish/reno'd the house best/has the best sob story/knows the most obscure historical facts wins X amount of money". If you want to be charitable, just ******* give people money in an honourable way. Disgusting that they make people dance around for what is for most of them, an opportunity to escape their living hell. Then if they don't win? Back to square one, but the company's still made more $ off the back of their views

Yep. Not to mention, that all those shows are just plain shit. Made for single mums in Cranbourne and the like to entertain over dinner. Garbage.

Listening to Aussie cricket podcast. Swearing. F bombs and many of them used to add emphasis. “So ****in shit”.

Then they have Peter lalor on and later Jim maxwell. Hardly professional behaviour.

Anyway, swearing in this case is cringey and comes across as try hardy cause the emphasise **** and shit.
