A pet peeve is basically there to push you over the edge for no apparent reason.

They creep up on you, unexpectedly, when you're just trying to have a good day, and devastate your already frayed nerves.

What did we ever do to deserve this?


u/witchyblackmore asked:

What mild inconvenience angers you quickly?

Here were some of those answers.


Slow Movers

People slow walking/standing on a pathway.. especially if it's crowded like, do you mind acknowledging other people exist and are moving so at least make some space and or have a sense of your environment? Some people can be so self-centered; like, no wonder automobile accidents happen regularly.

'Ow' to 'Oh No'

When I hit my head by accident I completely lose it. Like accidentally hit the car door when getting groceries out of the car and suddenly I'm raging for no apparent reason against everyone and anything.

My??? House????

When people start playing music or videos out loud from their phone without headphones at a cafe, restaurant, or waiting room like they are just chilling at home. Some people are unbelievably self-centered and rude.

Just Read The Dang Resume

When using indeed you need to upload a resume and fill out questions that teasing a resume would solve. Sometimes you can use that to apply for jobs, other jobs require going through their own site and upload a resume. They try to autofill the pre selected boxes but always manage to screw it up and you're forced to basically enter you resume manually again.

You have my information and you have my resume- why tf does applying for a job takes 20 minutes with patience, 3 days if I give up, and up to a week if I'm applying by phone but don't have my resume on it. YOU HAVE ALL THE INFORMATION YOU NEED. WHY IS THIS SO ANNOYING

Just Break The Hanger? Ja.

Clothes hangers with those shoulder divets. Every time I pull a shirt off, the other side manages to get caught. My wife is used to finding tiny shards of demolished clothes hangers on the closet floor because I. Win.

Tweeze This

Stupidly specific- dropping a tiny yet important object on the floor.

I'm a jeweler and i spend waaay too much time crawling around my carpet looking for the 3mm sapphire that wouldn't stay in the damn tweezers.

I have two symptoms of neuralgia/neuropathy:

  1. Random, highly sensitive pain with no cause. When it happens, something like small breeze or my shirt brushing my skin can make me wince in pain. 5/10 in terms of pain.
  2. A minor burning sensation on my fingers like I just touched something spicy and didn't wash my hands yet. 0/10 in terms of pain.

#2 drives me nuts. The pain I can deal with, but the "spicy finger" is utterly annoying. I have to keep my thumb planted on something cool at all times or I can't focus. It's happening right now. UGGGGGGH.

Pets Or Pests?

The sound of a cat grooming itself or a dog licking. I absolutely cannot handle those noises.

Also the neighbors dogs barking incessantly. I find that to be the most infuriating thing and completely disrespectful of other neighbors. Our animal control is a joke here too.

What Have You Been Doing????

People not being ready when you get to the front of the line. Especially airports, be ready with your ID/boarding pass for checking bags and you be ready at security. Missed a flight once because of this, I was livid.

I have never been closer to violence at the workplace or even literally throwing whatever project I'm working on across the room than the few instances that I've managed to hit my hand with a hammer multiple times in quick succession

Physical pain gets under my skin quicker and more aggravatingly than any amount of unwarranted verbal abuse, random change of plan, or infuriating sound. Physical pain can't be fixed by finding the person causing it once it's happened, you can't be passive aggressive, or just walk away from it. Physical pain will be there to remind you of how you just done goofed, and it'll always be in the way just enough to make whatever you're doing more miserable

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
