Even the most chill people have something that gets under their skin. Whatever it may be, for whatever reason, can quickly turn your day sour if you let it. The interesting thing is it differs from person to person. What might be small beans for one person can be the worst thing in the world for someone else.


Reddit user, u/TheLamaGamer, wanted to know what gets your goat when they asked:

What things annoy you the most?

That's Called Being An "Emotional Vampire"

When people constantly feel the need to complain about everything. Take the time to shut up. Silence is always appreciated.

It's all about reading the room. Nothing beats a comedic b-tch session at the watercooler. Good vent, good laughs, good times. I can leave the convo feeling uplifted by the comradery.

But if one person is just droning on and no one else is interested, then they're just bringing down the mood of everyone else.

Yep. Definitely Their Fault.

Other drivers when I'm on the road.

I'm absolutely convinced they're all idiots, deliberately trying to ruin my day or kill me.

I'll always follow the wisdom of driving my dad taught me when he was teaching me how to drive.

"Just assume every single driver around you is an idiot"

You Know...What's The Word...You Know The One...

When the word is just out of my mental reach at the moment.

Especially when it's a very common word.

There's actually a word for that phenomenon... but f-ck me if I can remember what it is right now!

I Just Want A Place Where I Can Swear As I Wish

Children in bars/breweries. If you're glaring at me because I said "f-ck" loudly in a loud tasting room with my adult friends in front of your young child, I feel it's more your fault than mine

In my state it's not even legal to enter with children. You are welcome to come here.

Is it weird that I truly only started noticing how annoying this is once I found out about the existence of air pods?

You Think THAT'S Bad?

One-uppers. Let someone tell their story without needing to add how something similar (or not at all) happened to you but SO MUCH WORSE. It especially irritates me when I'm venting or upset and you can tell the person isn't being sincere in what/why they share.

That's What We Call Cup Shenanigans

when the ice in your lemonade melts and the drink tastes slightly diluted

AV8ORboi

Or when the ice is snug at the bottom of the glass, but when you tip to drink it, that sh-t suddenly and expectedly-unexpectedly gets free to 'berg you right in the lip/nose.

HEY. CAN YOU HEAR ME? NO, I GOT THE TIME.

People who talk loud on the phone in public

That's literally my mom

TheLamaGamer

Mine too, and she puts the speaker on when she's talking to you so everyone around can hear your conversation.

If I was a spy and I was captured by the enemy and tortured for state secrets, they would only need to chew doritos close to me. I'd break.

Being woken up suddenly is not very good for our health.

Especially for the elderly, it's not something to make a habit of. Sleep interruption can increase blood pressure, cause a worsened self image, and cause a day filled with irritation and confusion.

No one wants to be woken up, but there are definitely some reasons for being woken up that are worse than your alarm clock.

We went to Ask Reddit to find out some of the worst reasons people have been woken up.

People have a habit of excusing crap behavior - honestly because it's often easier in the short term. Long term = flaming dumpster fire.

We live in a time where we are critically re-examining how we pay workers. After a two-year-long pandemic where some low-income and "unskilled" jobs were deemed "essential," we now must put our money where our mouth is.

For too long in the world have incredibly important jobs been overlooked or else outright maligned. Teachers in the USA make some of the least money, career-wise, and have some of the hardest jobs. Dancers pay to put their bodies through hell with no guarantee of paid work after training.

What causes a small town to die?

Honestly, there can be quite a few factors, but perhaps the biggest one is that small towns often lack the upward mobility opportunities that are more available in urban areas.

As a result, many towns around the United States for instance have lost tens of millions of people as their populations seek jobs and opportunities elsewhere.

And what remains of these places can be pretty sketchy.

People told us more after Redditor RadicalizedSnackWrap asked the online community,

"What's a super sketchy US city that we never hear about?"
