10 Hobbies People Get WAY Too Carried Away With!


Hobbies are — by definition — something done for relaxation or pleasure. They’re not supposed to be your religion or your reason for living! I used to build models as a kid — cars, airplanes, battleships. You can still find them at Hobby Lobby and Adventures Underground, but it’s not really a big thing anymore. For me, it was always just a hobby. Here are a list of hobbies people are taking way, way too far:



Watching your kids play sports



Don’t tell the coach what to do. Don’t demand your kid be treated like a star. Don’t yell at the kids. Never yell at the ref/umpire.



Cat & Dog Shows



You have to be a member of the clubs to do well. It’s got nothing to do with how close your pet is to the perfect breed standard.



Cub Scout leaders



For some reason people with a passion for Cub Scouts sometimes get a little too into the pine wood derbies, the camps, the pack meetings, etc.






You’re an adult who likes to watch cartoons. That’s cool. I like some cartoons, too. But it’s not a religion.



League of Legends



If you’re spending more than an hour or two each night, you might have a problem.



Intramural Sports



League softball or whatever is supposed to be social, guys. You’re not going for your shot at the pros.






The number of hours it takes to get really good is just not worth it. Just play for fun, man!






You get that you’re not really in some kind of special forces, right?



Magic the Gathering



You might as well just blow your inheritance playing blackjack, that game is so expensive.



Drinking and/or weed



This is NOT a hobby! This is a beverage or something to smoke! If hard drinking or getting wasted is your idea of a great time — with friends or by yourself — you need serious help.
