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

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
