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.

That is until they stumble and land on their face.

Foreigners Break Down Their Favorite American Meals

Growing up, I had zero idea that the food I ate daily was "cultural."

It didn't occur to me until I was a kid when my mother had to gently explain to me that not everyone ate rice & beans.

She had to explain it because we were about to eat at a white friend's house for the first time.

People Share The Best Ways To Politely End A Conversation

Have you ever been caught in a conversation you didn't want to be in? Or start talking to someone only to realize you want to stop? Perhaps you were talking to a friend when the conversation took a turn for the uncomfortable.

Whatever the case, we've all been in those situations where we want the conversation to stop, but don't want to be rude.

When I was in third grade, I asked if I voted on American Idol that week. I said yes, since everyone seemed to, but of course I didn't know what American Idol was. Being pop culture challenged, I thought it was a ship. Needless to say everyone was confused when I was asked who I voted for and I replied, "What do you mean? I voted for American Idol!"

It didn't take me long to realize something was amiss, and I probably would've very rudely excused myself from the conversation (fueled by my embarrassment) if my teacher hadn't called us to attention at that very moment.

Luckily, the people of Reddit were willing to share their methods to politely end a conversation when Redditor Spritti33asked:

"How does someone politely end a conversation with a person who won't stop talking?"
