You don't know what kind of day a person is having.


They could have received some terrible news that morning or maybe they managed to hit every single red light on the way to work. A little bit of understanding could go a long way in helping bridge the gap between someone who's maybe a little off. However, there's never any excuse for behavior like the stories being told below.

Reddit user, u/Oddities420, wanted to hear what people got furious at you for:

What is the weirdest thing someone has gotten angry at you for?

Not In The Workplace

Seems like there's a lot of hostility at work, where people can easily be on edge to hit deadlines or make sure a task is finished properly. While professionalism is always appreciated, let's not forgive these people as they seem like really big jerks.

How Dare You Help People??

I got reprimanded at work for putting a homeless employee up in a hotel for a few days, after we had to fire him, so he could get life together.

I used my own money and they still wrote me up.

Taking The Hit For Someone Else

I was working with someone on some rather expensive equipment. We were to do a task they had a well documented procedure. The guy I was working with "knew better" and the procedure wasn't any good. I had used the procedure hundreds of times but I opted to let the person show me their way, figuring maybe they knew something I didn't.

We did it their way and their way was bad. I explained it to them that it was bad. I discussed with them that I used the procedure in that city on multiple times and everything was great. Nope, they knew better so I just came along for the ride.

Well after about 5 days, this person had f-cked everything up to the point other people noticed the degradation. We were called in and asked if we knew what was going on. I simply said yes and explained we weren't following the procedure. We get lectured and I take my scolding. After it was done, I turned to my partner and asked if they were ready to listen yet?

After that they refused to work with me and filed a complaint about me with my supervisor. On the plus side, I never worked with them again after that.

I Was Just Offering Help...

I once offered a colleague help because she was struggling. She went flipping psycho at me, telling me I was a f-cking prick etc etc. Our manager called us into her office and told me she didn't care who's fault it was and that I needed to apologize. I told her that this was indicative of her poor management style.

The Tricks Of Romance

Being in a relationship is hard enough, opening yourself up and revealing your deepest darkest feelings to a significant other. However, what happens when someone snaps?

Whoa, Way To Shoot Yourself In The Foot

I (F) was sitting in a bar once and my friend (also F) struck up a chat with the guy sitting next to her for like 5 min. As the two of them were mildly flirty I was just sort of half-listening in on their convo and kinda on my phone not really paying attention. So anyway, this guy and the guy he was sitting next to (his friend) go to leave and as they are walking out, the friend gets in my face about what a B!TCH I am and I think I'm SO HOT and I didn't even SPEAK to him and didn't ask him a single QUESTION about HIMSELF and I am SO SELFISH and so SELF ABSORBED because I think I'm SO HOT and I'm actually REALLY UGLY and NOT THAT PRETTY anyway!!!

My friend and I just stared at him like 👁👄👁 until they left and then we burst out laughing.

Really Should Have Been The First Time

My ex girlfriend got mad at me for catching her cheat/send nudes to another guy twice.

To be fair, you really should have only caught her once.

"I Want You To Want To Do The Dishes."

Doing the dishes with the wrong motivation.

Apparently I should do the dishes because it brings me personal fulfillment, not because I do it to make the other person happy. It was very odd to me.

Then There's The Other Times...

You're going about your day, minding your own business, then suddenly, BOOM! Someone decides you seem like the best person to take all their frustrations out on.

Maybe Get That Person Out Of A Classroom?

I was in special needs as a child in elementary and I had a hard time using things like pencils or scissors until I was a teenager. In Kindergarten, my class colored and cut out pictures of turkeys for thanksgiving. My teacher walked over to my desk and yelled at me in front of everyone complaining how poorly I cut out my turkey. She yelled at a child IN SPECIAL NEEDS. The teacher forced me to redo my picture while all the other kids got to read with her. It was almost two decades ago and it still pisses me off.

Maybe Get Better Friends?

One time my friend called me drunkenly at 2 or 3 a.m. to try to get me to confess I was sexually attracted to women because 'everyone is bisexual'. I'm not. For some reason this angered him. He went on and on, getting louder and louder, until he was yelling at me about my sexual preference. I hung up on him.

We aren't friends anymore because there were a lot of drunk phone calls like this.

Maybe I DON'T EVEN WORK HERE

A lady got mad at me because I wasn't an employee at a store. I was in after work getting groceries and had my badge on and she assumed I worked there.

She tried to lecture me about taking my badge off.

Maybe I Don't Even Know Anymore...

I live in a house with 3 other people and we all rent rooms. Once I got to know them I said to one of them "you can probably let your cats out of your room now that we all know each other" and then I got yelled at for 15 minutes about how I need to shut the f-ck up and not tell people how to take care of their animals and she knows what the f-ck shes doing with her cats... so that was neat

Being understanding is a key aspect of being a better person. However, not let someone feel like they can walk over you. Keep your guard up and know your worth. Never feel bad for telling someone to back off.

We often find ourselves having to guess how to make things work and make things fit--in our lives, but also just in our possessions. Will these pants fit me? These shoes?

Will this screw fit my table? Will this charger fit my phone?

You know what they say, “the road to hell is paved with good intentions". Because the people who have our best interests in mind typically have good intentions when they give us advice, but there's a chance that that advice can go horribly wrong.

Every once in awhile, somebody comes along, enters your life, and catapults themselves to that awful, unique position at the top of your list of the worst people you have ever met.

Sometimes, the person's blindingly terrible behavior and overall essence is actually impressive. We ask ourselves, "how could a person like this actually exist on purpose?"
