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.

There are just some things in life that are not necessary knowledge.

Maybe we always hold out that tiny bit of hope we will one day be on Jeopardy... because you never know.

It's the creepy facts about life that leave me wondering and reeling.

RedditorsPanzer_ace_8wanted to compare notes on the things we're aware of that maybe we wish we could forget. They asked:

"What’s a disturbing fact you know?"

Hitchhikers Describe The Most Memorable Ride A Stranger Has Ever Given Them

Hitchhiking. It has to be one of the most dangerous things a person can do.

There are too many movies where a hitchhiker falls victim to some psycho, and they're shocked it's happening.

Like... Hello?!?! You got into some stranger's car. How could you not get killed?

Also, all throughout childhood years we tell kids to NEVER get into a stranger's car.

But once we're 18 that rule seems to no longer apply.

I feel like it should be MORE prescient in adulthood.

But I'm sure all the survivors have quite the tale to share.

RedditorWestTexasOilmanwanted all of the road travelers to share some memories about past rides. They asked:

"Current or Former Hitchhikers of Reddit; What person that stopped or gave you a ride was the most memorable? Why?"

Americans Break Down The Things They Appreciate Most About The U.S.

Let's put this up front: the United States of America is not the greatest country in the world.

It's just a fact. We're not tops in the world in education, our maternity leave for new mothers pales in comparison to most European countries, which is to say nothing of our healthcare as a whole, and our average income per household?

8th. Last we checked, that's not 1st.

It's not all doom and gloom though. There are still a lot of things to love about the good ol' U. S. of A. And if you love something, you fight for it, to make it better, and truly try to achieve the ranking of "best."
