You know that thing that just sets your hair on end and makes you clench your jaw? The thing you hardly ever tell anybody else because they would think you were silly.

Well, you're not alone in having those things bother you. They creep up on you like little demons and then drive you absolutely bananas before you even know it.

u/davefromSeattle2 asked:

What irritates you way more than it should?

Here were some of those answers.

End My Misery

When I feel a sneeze that continues to build and build and then... nothing.


This literally just happened to me and I'm livid! Instead of sneezing I farted. At least something happened but it wasn't the thing I wanted.


Knobbly Little Knot

The little knot bump on socks that sits in front of my baby toe.

Edit:. Well then. Many suggestions for Bombas, and inside out socks. Highest rated comment is about a knot on a sock. Lol. Oh ,I also recommend the novelty Stance socks. The star wars ones were great, and I currently have superbad. Also, their butter blend socks are nice too.


Color Coordination:

I recently bought a box of Sainsbury's Decaf Red Label tea.

The box is blue.

This has been bothering me all week.


The pet peeve is powerful, silly, and undeniable: a great mix of three things to be.

Good Little Trash

Being told to do something I am already in the process of doing.


Me carrying out the trash can.

Mom: Don't forget to put out the trash!

Me: What did you think I was doing?! Taking the trash for a walk?


Stop Invading My Space

People parking right next to me in a nearly empty parking lot, especially when I park near the back


Similiar, but urinal etiquette. There is an entire row of urinals to use (10), why you have to piss right beside me?


Calm Down Becky

Being told that I'm angry or crying when I'm doing neither


It's just a way to pre-emptively comtrol people's emotions, it's super manipalative


Sh*t irritates me too. Don't try to put emotions I don't have in me to make yourself feel more important. I'm not going to cry or get mad because you made an a**hat comment. I just let that sh*t go and move on.


No, I Promise, I Was There

When someone tells me I'm wrong when I know I'm remembering things clearly.


Omgosh, I hate this. Or they tell me that I'm remembering something that according to them never happened. B*tch, it did happen. You just don't want to admit it happen.


For some reason or another, this thing crosses our boundaries like nothing else in the world.

Noise Complaint!

Excessive loud noise. It just makes me feel on edge.


I hate how very few people seem to be aware or give a sh*t about the noise they make. Whereas I am acutely aware of the noise I make and I feel bad for having to make excessive noise (I live in an apartment).


Yertl The Turtle

Walking behind a group of people who are walking so slow. HURRY UP OR LET ME PASS!


And when they're also taking up the whole walkway/hallway. The hallways on the main floor of buildings at my uni are quite wide, and a group of 3 people can still manage to make it impossible for one person to pass..

Being told to calm down when I'm not angry or upset. I know people use that term as a power play to actually get you to to become upset.


Yeah jeez I was "debating" somebody who in every single comment either told me to calm down or pointed out how frustrated or upset I was. I reread everything and couldn't determine how any rational person could have interpreted what I said in that fashion, he was simply using it to try to get a rise out of me.

The conversation finally ended when somewhere in his comment he backpedaled because "how could I know that's what you meant I'm not a mind reader" and I responded by telling him since he isn't a mind reader he should probably stop trying to assume my emotional state, especially considering how it's irrelevant to the conversation at hand.

My life would be better if I stopped engaging with people on Reddit but I think ever since being socially starved it's been hard to not.


So do these things actually bother us more than they should, or more than society has decided they should?

What things bother you this intensely?

The finite nature of a hotel stay can lead guests to behave in ways they wouldn't normally. And where there is saucy behavior, there are the artifacts left behind.

Typically, I would write an intro about my own experiences with the weird kids at school, but I WAS the weird kid in school. Not in a bad way, more like a “I had a John Waters phase” when I was 16 and everyone knew it. So like, cool-weird. At least I hope so.

Schools aren’t always so lucky to have the cool kinds of weird kids though. The spectrum of weird extends even further than that, and can sometimes end up very disasterous.

U/Imaginary_East5786 asked: What was the weirdest thing the weird kid did at school?

​Let’s start with the grossest of the gross. Because why not.

Was it worth it?

He heard that you'd automatically get suspended if you peed your pants at school. He wanted to find out if it was true, peed his pants, got suspended.


Scientific method:

> Observation: 'I've heard that by peeing your pants you will be suspended'

> Hypothesis: If I pee my pants I will be suspended

> Experiment: I peed my pants and I got suspended

> Conclusion: If I pee my pants I get suspended


Uhhh what was the intention here?

He got mad that he didn't understand how to play a game at lunchtime so he started hitting and punching the nearest person to him, who happened to be me. When I shoved him away and asked him what the hell was he doing, he whipped his unit.out, charged at me and when I shoved him away from me again he started crying and ran away with his member still sticking out.


​Next ones up are the lowkey (or even highkey) disturbing stories. These weird kids can get a little scary.

Boom theret.

At my middle school, someone decided to get a little attention with a good old fashioned bomb threat. Except they thought that a bomb threat meant literally writing "bomb threat" somewhere. Worse yet, they misspelled the f*ck out of it, and wrote "boom theret."

So we had to go on a brief, very awkward lockdown while the police checked the perimeter for booms.


I hope there was no overlap in the columns.

Serial Killer Halloween GIF by GIPHY CAM Giphy

She wrote a list of all the girls and boys she wanted to kiss and murder and then casually passed it out on the playground.


2 separate lists or just the 1?


Same list 2 columns lol.


Holy crap.

Had the weird kid in high school ask the teacher to use the bathroom. She said no and this dude legit stabbed his hand with a pencil. Went all the way through then asked if he could*t was wild.

This was Pearl High School in Mississippi. This was the school Luke Woodham shot and killed his girlfriend and her friend at the school. This kid stabbed himself with the pencil about 2 months after that happened. This was late 1997.


​Most of the time, however, the weird kids are pretty d*mn funny.

Ok, but this takes a lot of skill.

Had a kid nicknamed "cheeseburger" in the grade ahead of me in high school. He got his nickname because when it was time for his class to go to lunch, he snuck into the roof and crawled his way into the cafeteria, dropped down and proceeded to steal all the cheeseburger put out for lunch. Unfortunately they caught him in the act and sent him to the principal's office.

A year later he was caught stealing a teacher's computer, and in the process of being arrested he bit the officers hand, getting him sent to juvi never to be heard of again.


Every school had the cat girl.

The weird kid at my highschool tied a string around his pencil case and pulled out around the halls pretending it was a dog. He still lives in my hometown. I think unemployed.

Oh also weird girl in middle school acted like a cat. She would meow and hiss at people, lick the water fountain and rub her body on the teacher's legs. In 8th grade. I have no idea where she ended up.



Weird kid in elementary was a self proclaimed alien. Once, while waiting for the bus, she told me "On my planet we eat people like you" and proceeded to bite me. We later became friends in high school and she used to give me massages during lunch break in the quad. Just realized now she was likely tenderizing me.


I was exactly this kind of weird.

He didn't say much, but if asked, he would go to the front of the class and perform Tip-Toe Through the Tulips with all of the emotion and volume of Tiny Tim, holding nothing back.

The last I heard, he became an energy trader, made a ton of money and married well.


I can definitely relate to that last one. In middle school, my English teacher would let me go to the front of the class and perform monologues or songs from Broadway musicals. Weird, but that’s what happens when schools cut funding for the arts and the theatre kids have no outlet.

As long as you’re not hurting anyone, I say let your freak flag fly, man

It's fair to say that just because you're a parent doesn't mean you have the abilities to properly teach.
