Ask me what little thing pisses me off and... I wouldn't know where to begin. What does that say about me? Yikes.

You see, there's no shortage of things out there that annoy the hell out of us. There's a recent viral meme that I love because it proudly declares, "I hate going out in public because the people be there." It speaks to me.

But there's more out there to get on our nerves than just people, as we were reminded once Redditor mysteriouslycryptic asked the online community,

"What minor inconvenience drives you f**king insane?"

"It's a scam..."

"Ads about $350 dollar surveys on Instagram. It's a scam and it's annoying as hell."


The WORST. And they're everywhere. Probably a major reason why I don't waste my time on Instagram.


"YouTube turning your whole recommendation page into a topic you've watched two videos of."


The YouTube algorithm is horrible. There, I said it.



"I work so hard and pay so much for good internet. Having 100/100 speeds and being plugged into the router should never have issues."


Thankfully I have amazing internet... but when this happens, it enrages me. There are so many places in this country that lack it.

"People that stick gum..."

"People that stick gum underneath the underside of tables or litter literally anywhere."


This is so nasty. Why are people like this?!

"A lot of people call you..."

"Not even telemarketers, but the scam callers. A lot of people call you like fake Apple call centers asking you to login because of 'security reasons' or whatever."


I don't even answer my phone. If it's that important, you'll leave a message.


"Scientologists. Especially the ones recruiting where my doctor's office is. It's a couple of blocks from the HQ in LA. Thankfully they wear outfits that make them look like ushers at a movie theater back in the 50s and are easy to spot."


I have dealt with a few and this description is spot on.

"When it takes 15 seconds..."

"When it takes 15 seconds for a company to put a fraudulent or unwanted charge on my account but takes 5-10 business days to get it back."


I felt this in my soul. Why is this so true???

"Can't it just start realizing..."

"The human body's need to save EVERY GODDAMN CALORIE it can get hold of. Can't it just start realizing when enough is enough and pass the rest on?"


Ain't that the truth! Curses!

"I was ice fishing..."

"Seeing people leave trash out in nature."

"I was ice fishing this winter and I saw these guys just dump their trash in the hole drilled in the ice. My blood was just boiling at the total disrespect given to nature."


Just don't litter.

Don't do it.

It's the quickest way to teach others that you're an ass.

"We've all been there."

"Poorly synchronized stop lights. We’ve all been there. Stuck at a red light, go a block, hit another red. Go another block, hit another red."

"Seems like with the technology today this should be extremely easy and cheap to fix."


You would think, and yet I see this all the time! So annoying.

Okay, if reading any of these sent your RAGE-O-METER spiking in advance, sorry, dude. I'm just the messenger.

If you've never seen the comedy classic, "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," there is a scene where Arthur, King of the Britons, encounters a black knight guarding a bridge. Arthur quickly figures out the stalwart knight will not let him pass, so the two do battle, with the king severely injuring his enemy in the process.

He cuts off all his arms and legs.

Yet the black knight persists, insisting his injuries are, "but a scratch."

Turns out this happens to people in real life, not so much with swords and knights, but with can openers and ice skates.

We are currently in a market that favors workers over employers – many workers feel empowered to seek out different positions and have reevaluated what they want in their careers amid the financial fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Many workers left their jobs in search of greener pastures because they were ready for a change, and others were more than happy to leave behind toxic workplaces that only burned them out.

As you can imagine, they've become rather adept at noticing red flags during the interview process and beyond.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor taylortaylortaylorrr asked the online community,

"What is a red flag from an employer that people might not immediately recognize as a red flag?"

Computers are not everyone's strong suit. Generation z is now reaching adulthood, and they've had computers, smart phones, and iPads since birth.

For anyone in an older generation, this wasn't the case. Computers weren't even advertised for the home until the Superbowl of 1984, and even then it was priced at $2,500.

Come the turn of the 21st century, computers are a staple in the home, but the advancements in the last two decades have left some people scrambling to keep up. Things that might seem basic to some are shockingly uncommon to others.

Living close to the Everglades, weird wildlife encounters don't really seem all that "weird" anymore. South Florida is some next-level wilderness.
