/ Things that make you feel uncomfortable or freak you right out!
He looked a bit like the toad guy from A League of Gentleman:
He had 2 large gold ball earings, one in each ear (the sort a 10 year old girl would wear) worse than that, when he started taking the computer apart, he had the longest most manicured nails I've ever seen in my life!
Now each to their own but he really freaked me out and I was glad when he left!
What has freaked you out or made you really uncomfortable?
People who are incapable of changing a battery freak me out.
You have a point. My 85-year-old mother recently replaced the CMOS battery on her computer.
Admittedly I was quite surprised it was still working afterwards, but that's my knowledge of my mother's computer building skills (zero, trending to negative) than a comment on the scale of the job.
If you can change a battery in a remote control, you can change a CMOS battery. People just get scared of taking the lids off things.
You're a meta-freak!
Did I actually judge him? Not at all, he just freaked me out.
As for changing the CMOS battery, I did try to do it but it was in an accessible part of the computer and I didn't have the tiniest screw driver available :)
If he freaked you out, he did so on the order of his appearance, you clearly state this in your op.
So yes you did judge him......
I don't like beards, but I wouldn't be freaked out by one, unless it was on a bird. My nanna has one and she is lovely.

> Only an idiot DOESN'T judge people on their appearance if that's mostly what you have to go on. If I see a shaven-headed, tattoo-covered hulk with a pit bull coming down the street towards me my antennae start twitching. He may be a pillar of the local Rotary Club, church warden and chairman of the local St John Ambulance but, not knowing any of that, I'd keep a wary eye on him. If I see an elderly nun coming towards me I'm pretty relaxed. Feel free to say 'Told you so' should you ever hear I've been knifed by an elderly nun. So yes, I'm judging by appearances and, psycho nunsa prmitting, happy to carry on doing so.
I understand that, I'm a human being. I didn't dispute that it was wrong to judge, we judge constantly every day. I merely pointed out that he did, when he said he didn't.
Keep an eye out for them knifing nuns

I'll not get a wink of sleep tonight now
To get back to the topic...
Rotating ceiling fans, or any rotating machinery that's obviously unbalanced and precessing. I don't know what it is, but it makes me uncomfortable, literally turning my stomach.
100% woollen items...such as jumpers, bags, carpets etc. The thought of their texture makes me cringe and my hands itch.
The undersides of big ships.
> The undersides of big ships.
I take it you were Keel-hauled as a child as well then? I understand this one totally.
Watching Paul Hollywood gives me the creeps. It's not so much him, it's when the camera zooms in on him kneading dough. There's just something unnatural about the way his fat little hands move so fast.
Alan Carr. No idea why. Before anyone jumps to the obvious conbclusion I love Graham Norton, who can be just as camp. There's just something about Carr that make my flesh crawl.
It turned out that I'd gone to the wrong address.
spiky but smooth surfaces (or surfaces that look that way), totally freak me out
There's a guy at work that freaks out all the women in the building. There's just something about him that puts them on edge.
He always seems polite enough to me and other than being a bit of a closet racist he seems reasonably normal. The women just can't stand him though.
perhaps a tale from my teenage years.
At one time my friend and I were on a walking holiday in Devon/Cornwall. We didn't have any particular aim, slept rough and wandered where the wind took us. One evening around dusk we found ourselves in this deserted village, no people to be seen, no lights on in the houses, no sound, shops shut. We must have spent half an hour looking around when we saw our first figure. A single person holding what appeared to be a shotgun walking across fields on the outskirts of the village straight towards us. Without a seconds thought we turned and legged it in the opposite direction as fast as we could.
or earlier this year in Paklenica when my wife and I came to a deserted farm and heard the buzzing of what sounded like a thousand flies. Fortunately our visions of rotting corpses turned out to be a swarm of bees. Phew!
Can I also say that my wife has a talent for freaking me out.
She hides in darkened corners, in cupboards, under beds, etc. and then jumps out on me when I least expect it.
Its like inspector Clouseau and Kato in our house some nights
they dont freak me out, but i do recall them from a bout of delirium as a kid (dodgy shepards pie).
is that where you get it from?
Snakes ,and more importantly ,the strange people who keep them in their homes .
I crap myself if I see a slow worm.
they've got to be pretty frayed though.
Pooing on strange toilets, I just can't do it most of the time, for years a would batten down the hatches for days if I was at a festival, its not so bad now, I hover or make a bog roll toilet seat cover, but it still freaks me out.
Any body biting their fork as they eat, fuk that goes through me and if your holding the fork or spoon wrong( don't ask ) I can't enjoy my meal and will probably never eat opposite you again,.
There's is plenty more but I am off to see my shrink.
Another thing, a friend of my ex really put me on edge. He really creeped me out & i wasnt the only person to think like that about him. Later found out that my ex's solicitor had said he reminded her of fred west!
I end up staring at them wondering wtf must be going on in their tiny heads. I can't relax watching the TV so they get sprayed I'm afraid.
Ladders, I will quite happily dangle from a rope or climb without any backup at all as long as it is within my skill but fecking ladders give me elvis-leg.
some of those alex honnold videos spike my levels.
It's not being high that freaks me out I regally solo and I love exposed routes but there's something about it that gets to me.
I keep waiting to hear about them digging up the bodies...
I've met GO - I thought he was actually not toooo bad. Now, Grove - now there's a freaking, freaky freak if ever I've freaking seen one!
But, seriously, why has no one mentioned Clowns?
Clowns always have freaked me out. They're just weird and serve no identifiable purpose other than to scare small children and give them sleepness nights into adulthood.
China dolls or clown masks in darkened rooms. Spooks me completely.

Clowns freak everyone out.

Do you wear a crown? carry a sceptre?
Aaaargh!....metal cutlery-biters. *The horror*. What is WRONG with these people :(
Octopus and/ or squid. Don't know why, as I'll happily eat them, but when they're alive, the way their tentacles move creeps me out. I think it may be because a large octopus wrapped itself around my leg once whilst I was standing in the sea in Greece.
