It's unbelievable what some people do in public. Some things are mere pet peeves, but others just make you wonder if that person has any semblance of shame. Here are a few examples of both sides of this, showing the annoying things that people manage to do in front of others.
u/Bigderp23 asked: What is one thing you hate when people do it in public?
Get out of the way!
Stand in everybody's way, completely ignorant of their surroundings. Even worse when they start to congregate.
I swear some people have no idea there are other people. Zero situational awareness.
Have you heard of headphones?Giphy
Listen to music out loud. I don't wanna hear your sh*t in the train.
Definitely not while hiking through the woods. I once passed a guy on a trail with a boom box on his shoulder. It was 2017.
People do this?
Find a trash can dammit!
There are trash cans everywhere in this city, why is this necessary?
This is infuriating.
People coughing and not covering their mouth really pisses me off.
Had to pick up a prescription today from a store in town. The town centre was pretty much dead as expected but I was still wearing my mask - managed to get one with N99 filters a while back for cycling. Along comes a guy, wandering in my direction despite there being a lot of space where he could've walked and coughed at the exact moment he walked by me.
Luckily I managed to divert a bit to keep at least the 2 meters before he got near. He only half heartedly covered his mouth with his hand. Of all times, of all places to cough he choose to walk nearby and do it. Absolute f*cking twit.
Oh and the real kicker is that prescription was for my immune compromised partner. He needed the meds very quickly (sudden flair in his condition, which makes him even more immune compromised) which was the only reason I risked going out. If the phrase 'for f*ck's sake' could've been summed up in an expression it would have been the look I gave that guy.
These are the worst kinds of people.Giphy
Raging at waiters/waitresses at restaurants. That gives me mad second-hand embarrassment like chill.
Being pointlessly loud.
*sings on the subway*
Nope! It's a sure way to get me the hell off of that train car as soon as possible though
Play music loudly on their phone, or loudly watching videos at a restaurant.
what would you like to order
Whaaa? I can't hear you
MAMA SHARK DODO DODO DODO
Yes to this.Giphy
Talking loudly on the phone.
...especially if they're holding the phone away from their ear using the speaker setting.
Adults do this?
Scream. Throw a tantrum.
Adults? What the f*ck is your problem? How have you failed so hard as a grown-*ss man/woman that you're shrieking and stamping your feet for all the neighbors to see? You're a nightmare, nobody should want to be around you.
Why do people do this?
People who stand too close behind you when you're in a line. I'm talking in general without six foot distancing.
