Fed-Up People Admit The Small, Annoying Things That Need To Be Made Illegal

Pet Peeves are interesting because you almost take pleasure in despising something so small that it seems insignificant to other people.

[rebelmouse-image 18349179 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

But would you outlaw those things if you could?

Reddit user Burgundy93 asked:

What little thing would you make illegal just because it pisses you off?

Here were some of the petty peevey answers.

False Ads

[rebelmouse-image 18349181 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Designing an ad so that the "X" to make it go away is really just a facade to make you click on the ad. KnightSolAireJordan

Not Always Right

[rebelmouse-image 18349182 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Yelling and or being agressive at minimum wage workers as a means to bend or break rules to get what they want.

Basically get rid or "customer is always right" mentality in business. Brachiozord

Spam

[rebelmouse-image 18349183 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Mail addressed to "neighbor" or "current resident". If you don't know who lives there you shouldn't be able to spam mail me. It would save a lot of paper and gas too. LyeInYourEye

Self-Discipline

[rebelmouse-image 18349184 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I'm currently a janitor for a public washrooms and people are absolute f-cking animals. ANIMALS!

You know how people say "everyone should have to work retail for one year" No, everyone should have to clean a public washroom for one week. One week is enough for people to get the picture, trust me. I don't understand how sh-t gets smeared on the back of the door kind of often. And how used tampons end up on the ground when their is a little bin for it right by the toilet paper. Or how when a toilet gets plugged, people continue to sh-t into it. You know what I found on Canada Day? A plugged toilet with 6 different diarreahs in there. Seriously.

I've realized that people don't associate seeing janitors with the nice and clean washroom they are using. They only associate them with the moment they close the washroom to clean it. I've literally had people yell at me because I had to close a PUBLIC washroom to clean it. TO CLEAN IT! And while I'm in there and I put the sign up that says "temporarily closed for cleaning" people will KNOCK ON THE DOOR CONSTANTLY. As if to say "HEY HURRY UP CLEANING UP THE SH-T OFF THAT WALL, I HAVE TO PISS ON THE COUNTER AND SMASH A GLASS BOTTLE IN THE TOILET!" CZILLROY

Can-Do Attitude

[rebelmouse-image 18349185 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

All can goods of the same size can no longer have irregular shapes and must fit snuggly into one another. I face/zone shelves as part of my job and the cans that do not stack piss me the f-ck off. I would like a law stating that all companies must make their cans in such a way that they will stack. [Username deleted]

Nothing Is As Nothing Does

[rebelmouse-image 18349186 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Clickbait videos with the little red circle pointing out nothing. flacidturtle1

Journey To The 90s

[rebelmouse-image 18349187 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Junk mail/flyers filling the mailbox. And believe it or not, I still get 3inch thick phone books every few months. Who is paying to get those made?! Don't they realize the world just googles if they need a number now? Waste of money, trees, and space. Umberwavesofgrane

Brights

[rebelmouse-image 18349188 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Installing blindingly bright floodlights on your truck and turning them on while driving at night. I don't see why people would be willing to endanger everyone on the road around them just to look like a douchebag. funkisintheair

Stickers

[rebelmouse-image 18349188 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I once got a mirror from a craft store. They put a giant sticker right in the center. Not one of those plastic-y stickers that peel off pretty easy. One of those super heavy duty ones that leaves all the leftover paper gunk on it. I scrubbed with soap and water and eventually broke the mirror.

WHY WOULD YOU PUT THAT KIND OF STICKER ON A MIRROR?!? [Username deleted]

Who Ya Gonna Call

[rebelmouse-image 18349189 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Answering your phone and not excusing yourself from the room to have the conversation. "Hold on, I need to loudly talk to this person over the phone and completely ignore/disrupt the people who are still in the room" krazykanuck1

Dangerous Distractions

[rebelmouse-image 18349191 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Playing any type of car noise (like honking) during radio commercials. I can't tell you how much times it's thrown me off while driving. I'm surprised there hasn't been more car accidents caused by this kind of stuff. Acediass

Repetition

[rebelmouse-image 18349192 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Making unnecessary modifications to a website's user interface that severely impede the site's previous use, without making them optional.

I'm looking at you Mr "Hey, here's some tweets you already read, 'In case you missed it', oh, and we made "Likes" work the same way as Retweets, for NO REASON!" Twitter. squiggleslash

Sliding/Doors

[rebelmouse-image 18349194 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Having a handle for the push side of a door.

Handles are for pulling.

Bars are for pushing. 3cardtrick

Ads Ads Ads

[rebelmouse-image 18349195 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Pop-up and on-click ads. ESPECIALLY the on-click ads. That shit just gets way annoying. I get it, it's the price I have to pay for not being able to afford to watch the series legally, but putting 7 on-click ads on the play button is just cruel. Four-Eyes_

Dammit Jenn!

[rebelmouse-image 18349196 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Adding people to Facebook groups without their permission.

I DON'T CARE ABOUT YOUR JAMBERRY WRAPS, JENN. caitlington

Noisy Times

[rebelmouse-image 18349197 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Letting your small children make noise and f-ck about unattended inside the movie theatre during a movie that they can't appreciate, understand or shouldn't watch. Don't take your 7 year olds to see Logan if they can't be quiet or sit still for f-cks sake. reasonablydont

Ad Control

[rebelmouse-image 18349198 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Fake advertisements on the internet. You can't run fake ads on tv, why is it no problem to make fake ads on the internet edit: everyone here says what are fake ads or they still allow fake ads on tv. In my country false advertising is forbidden on tv. And the 'fake' ads you mention still promote real products. The ads i find fake are the ones selling ways to become a milionair or lose weight quickly, the clickbait kind of ads. ergopeter

Real Studies

[rebelmouse-image 18349200 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Pseudo-science. Recently it is not only keyboard warriors who claim to be an expert in everything.

There is a trend where you-tube is filling with investigations and research which is not conducted in a proper way. So they base themselves on iffy sources and claim this to be the scientific truth. By the way it is presented it seems legit enough, and if you are not an expert yourself the mistakes are not that easy to spot.

a nice example to show what i am talking about: ancient aliens built the pyramids debunked

For a long time i was convinced the scientific community could anchor the uncolored reality, whatever popular belief and shitty journalism would be, but seeing the shier mass of misinformation (express or accidental) I am getting scared for the results on the long term memory of mankind.

(mainly because not every single detail is worth fully investigating, and a number of small unfunded assumptions have a much greater impact then you would expect.) silentanthrx

Trader Joe's

[rebelmouse-image 18349201 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

People who, when shopping, block the aisles for selfish reasons. I know aisles are easy to block by accident, I just really hate it when elderly people are having a conversation right in the middle and have seemingly blocked out everyone else's existence. And I kind of wish I could blast an air horn at them. ToErrDivine

God Save The Food

[rebelmouse-image 18349202 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Leaving religious pamphlets/bible verses/or fake money with quotes or messages on them for a server. Regardless of tipping practices in that resteraunt, this is just annoying and stupid. recorder_man

I'd Chime In

[rebelmouse-image 18349203 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Leaving the door opened AFTER I TOLD YOU FIFTY TIMES THIS DAY!! G-DDAMMIT DANIEL, WHY CAN'T YOU CLOSE THE F-CKING DOOR!!! Dawidko1200

Take Care Of Your Gum

[rebelmouse-image 18349204 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

People who spit out their gum in parking lots and public walkways. All_Your_Base

Macaw Draw

[rebelmouse-image 18349205 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

People who bring their fake service animals everywhere. In some places, it is illegal, and I'm not saying therapy dogs are in this category, but when you let your yappy, shedding, and obviously untrained dog put its crusty butt on a shopping cart, I want to smack you. I had one guy bring in a macaw and leave it on a desk in a furniture store. :/ There's no way in hell that thing is certified.TribblesIA

All Or Nothing At All

[rebelmouse-image 18349206 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

All or nothing mentalities. specifically in games/movies etc.

if people like something, its good. if you dont, its bad. it drives me nuts when people say things are definitively one or the other unless you use objective evidence.

my favorite example of this is if i enjoy something, but offer criticism, i catch all kinds of shit because i dare criticize something so great.

it drives me f-cking batty. Effendoor

People Explain Which Lessons Aren't Taught In History Class But Should Be
Photo by Taylor Wilcox on Unsplash

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

What isn’t taught in history class but should be?

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

"What’s something random you miss about pre-COVID times?"

Atheists Break Down What They Actually Do Believe In

What do you believe?

Is there a GOD in the sky?

Is he guiding us and helping us?

Life is really hard. Why is that is a big entity is up there loving us?

Atheists have taken a lot of heat for what feels like shunning GOD.

What if they've been right all along?

Maybe let's take a listen and see what they really think.

Redditor __Jacob______ wanted to hear from the people who don't really believe all that "God" stuff. They asked:

"Atheists, what do you believe in?"

The list of what irritates me is endless.

I mean... breathing too loud or dust can set me off.

I'm a bit unstable, yes.

But I'm not alone.

So let's discuss.

Redditor Aburntbagel6 wanted to hear about all the times many of us just couldn't control our disdain. They asked:

"What never fails to piss you off?"
