You know how it goes. You go your whole life sleeping okay until you sleep wrong and pull something. How did that even happen? Well, it sneaks up on you.

That's aging for you. Our bodies start to betray us (but it's important to maintain a sense of humor about it). And guess what? It won't be just your body that begins to annoy you as you get older.

People just... suck, man. We're stuck with them, alas.

The online community was keen to share their insights after Redditor hxnry_010 asked,

"As you get older, what's something that becomes increasingly annoying?"

"Clutter!"

"Clutter! Stuff! It didn't bother me that much when I was younger, but it's definitely something that's gotten increasingly on my nerves as I passed into my 30s."

"Definitely exacerbated by the grandmother-in-law who will not stop giving us stuff, no matter how often we ask her to."

This is why I continue to purge things, and I am still young! I don't want to deal with it when I'm older!

"Loud, dark restaurants..."

"Loud, dark restaurants - can't hear the server or my friends and can't read the menu without my phone flashlight."

oldkidgrumble

I am definitely already annoyed about this. I want to enjoy my food, thank you very much, and I don't want to lose my hearing while I'm at it.

"People looking at their phone..."

"Lack of awareness - everywhere."

"People looking at their phone while driving, not really listening to the person they're talking to, blocking the grocery aisle with their cart, leaving messes for someone else to clean up, taking good friends or family for granted, contradicting themselves with cognitive dissonance, screwing everyone behind them when the left turn is green, etc."

"You're not the only person trying to live your life today."

ohemjeezus

This is the worst! I can't believe how many people just draw a blank in the middle of a supermarket while out in public.

"Sharing the burden..."

"Sharing the burden of other peoples self-induced personal drama."

Macarogi

An understatement.

Therapy helps. Get some. It'll make you a better person and your friends won't hate you. In fact, they'll be quite happy for you.

"As a kid..."

"Honestly just drama. As a kid, I didn't notice it. As a teen, it was all around me and I was half involved. As an adult, I'm so f**king sick and tired of hearing stupid drama."

TaintedTruth222

Yes, this and gossip! I don't want to hear it, thank you very much!

"When do adults get summer break?"

"Working non-stop. When do adults get summer break? It's been 16 years."

Not_A_Wendigo

I wasn't put on this earth to work yet here I am with bills to pay... sigh.

"Waking up three hours..."

"Waking up three hours before it's time to get up because you're in pain because your bladder is full. The worst."

dmreeves

This is already happening to me. WHYYYYYYY

"Discovering..."

"Discovering new aches and pains when you get up in the morning."

WiddershinsRaven

Okay, I'm still safe. I think...

*gulps*

"Seriously..."

"Small print."

"Seriously, food manufacturers, you don't need to write the cooking instructions in 7-point Arial Narrow."

BirdyCephonAltera

I hate super small print so so much. It needs to be abolished.

"People who can't..."

"People who just can't shut the hell up. Especially on the bus or train. I just want to go back to sleep."

mrmitchs

We can definitely file this under "lack of awareness." People are ridiculous–no one wants to hear you talk to your family members on speakerphone on a bus!

Well, well, I'm feeling super cantankerous after reading these. I don't know about the rest of you but I think it's about time I go find a lawn and tell young kids to get off it.

Getting older?

People Who've Survived Being Shot Explain What It Really Feels Like

It's another ordinary day in America.

So of course that means we've already had a mass shooting or two before brunch.

And aside from the mass shootings, the number of single gunshot wounds or deaths is too high to count.

So let's discuss the aftermath.

Let's hear from the people who have faced the barrel of a loaded gun, or were just a casualty going about their day.

What happens after the bullet lands?

***CAUTION - SENSITIVE MATERIAL AHEAD - TRIGGER WARNING***

Redditor notaninterestingacc wanted to hear from the people who have lived the nightmare. They asked:

"Gunshot survivors of Reddit - What does it feel like to get shot?"

It's never attractive to gloat.

Nor does superiority ever come off as a particularly attractive attribute.

But, consciously or not, some people speak or behave in a way that immediately suggests that they think they deserve to be treated differently, i.e better than others.

Or that they believe they simply are better than other people.

A recent Redditor was curious what sort of behavior struck other people as elitist or arrogant behavior by asking:

"What screams "I am entitled"?"

There's something about the woods that creeps me out. Listen here, people: I'm a city guy. The idea of getting lost out there freaks me out. No thank you. I wasn't made for that. The rest of you who like to go camping and stuff? You do you. I'll stick with my running water.

But maybe I've seen too many horror movies. After all, if I saw some creepy stuff in the woods I'd definitely run in the other direction. And so would you, right? Right?

People shared their best stories with us after Redditor shantics asked the online community,

"What have you seen in the woods that you can’t explain?"

We're all not geniuses.

Everybody has varying degrees of knowledge and brain power.

And that is ok.

Though some of us are really lacking in any sense and every once and awhile people like to sugarcoat that fact when they call us out.

"Bless your heart."

That's a big one in the South. Means... "I like you, but Lord are you missing marbles."
