Humans are annoying. That is just the most truthful, simple fact about life. When people leave the sanctity of their homes it often feels as if all control of morals and behavior are lost into a void of despair. Between all the Karen, Chad and mask aversion videos running on loop, we have irrefutable proof of public bad behavior. And nothing can ruin a person's day (mostly my day) more than having to witness the public petulant nonsense on display.

Redditor u/Impaling-Heads was hoping we could all calmly discuss the actions we witness from humans that test all our nerves by asking.... What is something a lot of people do in public that angers you?

MOVE!!!!

When they block walkways so you can't get around them such as at malls and amusements parks. And, I especially LOVE IT when they suddenly stop for no reason!!

Theunpolitical

Ewwww....

Sticking their gum to the bottom of benches/seats/railings.

Taking Space

Take up the whole sidewalk. Especially if they are walking in a group.

Its even worse when they look at you with disgust that you wont move out of their way, like they lack so much self confidence that they cant walk behind their group for ten seconds to let you pass in case they feel left out of the conversation.

Spit on the sidewalk. ewwwwwww!!!!

RisingPhoenix5271

Yes.

You have street on one side and/or bushes on the other you can lean over two feet and spit there. Don't make me and my dog wade through your phlegm.

Quiet Please

Talk on speakerphone.

trimaximusrt

I blame reality tv. People see people talking on speakerphone (so the viewers can listen in) and decide that's how everyone should use a phone. (this may not be the actual reason, but it's my theory).

inspektor_queso

Don't be that person....

Litter.

thelesserdaughter

I must be an anomaly then. Was raised to never drop litter & it annoys me no end to see people littering. Consequently my bags and pockets are usually full of rubbish! I also smoke and I have a container for my tab ends. Yes, I am that person who will either tell you that you've dropped something, pick it up myself and give it to the offender or simply point out where the bin is.

Enough Paparazzi 

Just people that feel like they need to be on their phones videoing everything. i went to a wedding recently and the officiant asked that no one use their phone during the ceremony (pretty standard right?)

I saw 4 different women pull out their phones to record the bride walking down the isle even though the wedding already had a dedicated photographer/video guy.

No one wants to see your low quality freaking video!

Brats!!

Let their kids be rude.

the_chosen_ones_

People who let their kids scream and yell in a store or worse... the restaurant. Control your freaking kid.

QUIET!!

Try to talk to me even when I'm giving clear signals that I want to be left alone or even when I literally say leave me alone.

dricysarcasm

I'm awful at picking up cues like that unless it's very obvious. I normally will say hello and be friendly or ask if they're having a nice day. Just a quick friendly talk while we pass each other. Just hoping to lighten someone's day with kindness if they're having a bad day.

A Pause.

Stand in the middle of the aisle.

Or park their shopping cart in the middle of the aisle and then walk the heck away from it to grab something.

Manipulation is designed to be stealthy. We hardly recognize it when it's happening to us because our abuser has forced it to appear under wraps.

But when we recognize it for what it really is, we really feel like we've been smacked across the face. There is no other descriptor for it. Usually we've trusted and loved those that manipulated us.

Just as new mothers encounter the sudden, influential developments of powerful hormone changes, protective instincts, and milk production, so new fathers undergo some key changes of their own.

Their socks become exclusively white, climbing higher up the calf than ever before. All their shorts sprout cargo pockets and clunky belt loop cell phone holders. They start to really lean in to their old records.

Cleaning up is hard enough when it's just clearing a month of dust bunnies. Can you imagine cleaning the debris left by murder, suicide and violence? I have a really great friend who used to do crime scene clean-up for a living. The pay is incredible; it starts at $55 an hour. But there is a much higher cost in mental well being. Death affects you in ways you don't always feel immediately. My friend has stories of nightmares, depression and pain after leaving scenes of horror. Why make all that money just to spend it on therapy? It takes a certain type of person.

***TRIGGER WARNING. CONTENTS ARE SENSITIVE ***

Redditor u/MemegodDave wanted to hear from the people who have the stomach to come in after crime and tragedy

to try to bring back some form of normalcy to the location by asking... People who make their living out of cleaning murder scenes, accidents and the like, what is the worst thing you have experienced in your career?

We all know the telltale signs that something is making us uncomfortable. Suddenly, we begin shaking, either in our hands or knees or toes. Then, usually, sweat starts pouring out of every part of our body, making it look like we just ran through a rainstorm underneath a waterfall. Finally, we lose our regular speech functions. Everything goes out of sync and our words don't match up to what's in our minds.

What's interesting is that what usually brings about these fits of uncomfortableness differs from person to person, as evidenced by the stories below.
