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.

gameofthrones_addict

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.

SalemScout

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.

oyuno_miyumi

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

ajaxblack

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.

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?
