Another day, another annoyance. Sometimes the things that annoy us are just part of our regular routine, but for one reason or another, they remain the same day to day. In these cases, there's nothing you can do besides grin and bear it. Here are a few examples of these minor annoyances, straight from Reddit.

u/SirMiataLot asked: What is the most annoying thing that happens to you each day that no matter how long you have endured it, it still bothers you?



Good tip.

The headlights on vehicles are too bright for my [apparently] sensitive eyes. Bonus points if they're blue or superwhite and being sported on a truck with a lift kit.

Joe-Schmeaux

These are awful. Why blind other drivers?!

I got some yellow night-driving glasses to help with this. They help cut down on the glare.

EVERY. DAY.

Giphy

Sitting down to do something (or laying in bed), and then right as you're getting comfortable realizing you have to pee.

Just like restaurants. 

Having a ton of options and none of them sound good.

aHobbyist

Having too many choices is actually harder than a defined few. In his well-known work, psychologist Barry Schwartz, calls this choice paralysis. He argues that more choices make us less likely to take action, and to be less satisfied with our eventual decision.

Relatable.

Feeling tired when I wake up.

Shrikeangel

Or waking up in general.

SirMiataLot

Reply all.

Giphy

People that hit reply all to work emails that there is clearly no reason....

Macarthur22000

This is my boss. And then she needs everyone to respond with 'Noted' or some other confirmation and that has to go to everyone as well otherwise how will all 6 of us in the company be on the same page?

crashsaturnlol

Yes.

Going to the bathroom to poop, but no poop comes out.

PeculiarPenguin111

Or squatting forever and then having your legs buzzing afterwards.

SirMiataLot

It's infuriating.

That thing where you're listening to something in your headphones while cooking and the cord catches on a cabinet handle and they get ripped out of your ears and for some reason it feels like the most aggressive assault on the senses possible and you're instantly ready to square up with that cabinet.

Autocorrect is your friend.

When I make a typo, go back and erase, then continue typing and make the error again. By the third time I have to erase the typo I'll be slamming the backspace in frustration.

LoneCypress94

So this isn't going to sound like a real option, because it's basically idiotic, but try simply leaving the typos until you've finished writing the whole thing. I used to be viscerally against this, typos needed to be corrected immediately, but it turns out that this speeds up the first pass and helps keep your thoughts in order, and then you can fix the typos at your leisure.

We can solve dust.

That there's ALWAYS house work to be done. You can't get ahead, it's constant.

GravyxNips

I despise any form of constant maintenance tasks.

Also my programmer brain can't accept the fact that there's no permanent solution to these problems.

Why is dust a thing? Can we solve dust?

Mareeck

Ewwww.

Hearing my roommate eat. Dude sounds like a t-rex.

maugisaiyajin

My colleague at work makes slurping noises when he eats salad. He tries to suck it in like he's eating spaghetti.

Sometimes I dream of killing him...

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?
