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?
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.
I got some yellow night-driving glasses to help with this. They help cut down on the glare.
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.
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.
People that hit reply all to work emails that there is clearly no reason....
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?
Going to the bathroom to poop, but no poop comes out.
Or squatting forever and then having your legs buzzing afterwards.
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.Giphy
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.
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.
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?
Hearing my roommate eat. Dude sounds like a t-rex.
Sometimes I dream of killing him...
