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.

Owies For Days

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

As a "high achieving" student, the biggest mind-blowing fact I have ever learned has been the sheer amount of straight-up lying that happens in formal education.

It's a lot. Like a lot a lot. History class lied so hard.

We go hard on A Goofy Movie around here. Tevin Campbell as Powerline is the real King of Pop 'round these parts. The perfect cast is standard choreography

I needed to tell you all that so you understood it is not an attack on the movie when I say Max sucked.

Board games are designed carefully by teams of experts. Countless brainstorm sessions are carried out, designs and prototypes are proposed and changed, and plenty of focus groups are consulted along the way.

Businesses have to turn a profit to be able to stay operational. We get it. A consumer is paying more than it costs to make the product to purchase the product. The upside of accepting this fact should be we're being provided a service and experience we couldn't possibly get on our own. However, there are those products that are overcharged, especially compared to the development costs, that are charged a high price for what feels like no reason outside of making a ridiculous amount of money.
