People Break Down The Insignificant Things That Make Them Really Mad

Everyone has their breaking point, where injustice was done to themselves or to others makes them snap.

These grievances may include a cheating spouse, a lying business partner, or a criminal committing unspeakable acts.

But sometimes, all it takes for an individual to snap and go postal can be due to what others may perceive inconsequential.


Curious to hear examples of what sets people off, Redditor Obese-Feline asked:

"What is a small insignificant thing that makes you really mad?"

New tech can be very cool, but sometimes, our lives can be complicated because of it.

Password Fail

"My password failing 3x, the site requiring me to create a new password, and then when I choose the password I just tried, the site says I 'can't use the current password.'"

"Infuriating."

– AtheneSchmidt

Tricky Ads

"When you’re trying to click something on a webpage and an ad pops up between the moment your brain tells your thumb to apply pressure and your finger touches the screen."

– Uniqueisha

"When the ads on a YouTube video don't buffer but the actual video does."

– GengarIsLife

Bathroom Ineptitude

"Showers with confusing hot/cold handles. Automatic bathroom faucets that dont register your hand/motion."

– Latter-Ad6779

Conditional Environmentalism

"In the same vein - when bathrooms only have those disgusting air hand dryers that don’t even dry your hands. They’re so unsanitary. And then you have to touch the bathroom door handle with wet hands."

"Businesses will be so wasteful and not give a single f'k about the environment in any other way, but suddenly when it comes to providing paper towels to dry your hands, they’re all save the trees."

– KATEWM

The Auto-Preview

"Netflix...the way it just starts playing the preview or clip of whatever's on the screen. I don't know why but it irritates the hell out of me. I just want to browse in peace."

– ethottly

Our negligence can humble us right quick.

Caught Unawares

"When I walk past a door and my belt loop or clothing gets caught on the handle."

"1-100 real quick."

– GSG_2022

Wrong Pipe

"Taking a sip of water and choking on it. The next 2 hours of coughing and clearing my throat are just MAGICAL."

– AuroraMeridian

The Detour

"Leaving work only wanting to go home, and noticing I have to spend extra time getting gas."

– BrandanMentch

The things others do can be a real pet peeve.

Thanks For The Signal. Or Not

"people not using turn signals."

– Rainn_boww13

"Just 15 minutes ago I was impressed that a cab driver used his left signal at a 4-way stop so I figured I could cross safely on my side of the street."

"Naw, he just drove straight through and nearly hit me, not making any use of his left turn signal."

– Prize_Guest

Grocery Parking Etiquette

"When someone parks next to the grocery cart return area but doesn't put up their grocery cart."

"I'm like, two more steps and one small push and you're literally done with the cart. I don't get it."

– Twisted_NaeNae

Annoying Favors

"Someone telling me to do something when I was just about to do it. It’s childish but it pisses me off so much lol."

– rapey_chef

I can't stand it when people willingly do the things that annoy them.

Like boarding the subway before commuters get off at their stop. They'll block the doorway to give themselves the advantage of getting a seat on the train.

When I'm in a rush and a pathway isn't open for me and the stream of other straphangers also rushing to debark behind me, I'm this close to using my elbow instead of my voice to warn door guards to clear the way.

Sex is an important part of life.

That is just a fact.

But sex is also about connection and intimacy.

It's not something to ignore.

It's the biggest problem in the world, but partners should discuss it.

We all have things which get on our nerves.

Some people have a fairly high tolerance level, and are only truly perturbed by things which are beyond the bounds of common decency, or which are universally accepted as annoying or inconvenient.

Others are not so lucky, and tend to be set off by things which might go completely unnoticed by everyone else.

Redditor Onatic420 was curious to learn the things which instantly make others want to pull their hair out and scream, leading them to ask:

"What do you find annoying as f*ck?"

People Divulge The Biggest Lies Society Still Believes

How many of us heard the old saying "an apple a day keeps the doctor away" as a child?

Or were told by their parents that watching too much television would make your eyes fall out?

Needless to say, these, as well as other sayings and superstitions, were not 100% accurate, possibly even having no truth to them whatsoever

Rather, these were merely a way to encourage, or scare, children into better eating habits, or getting away from the TV once and a while.

Some however, have, took these and other unsubstantiated pieces of information literally, and continue to believe them to be true.

Redditor wste96 was curious to believe what other falsehoods people continue to believe, in spite of proof to the contrary, leading them to ask:

"What's the biggest lie ever told that we, as a society, still believe in?"
