"What is something you hate with a passion?" –– This was today's burning question from Redditor -im-losing-it, who allowed myriad users to tap into their wells of collective anger.

There's a lot out there that's wrong with the world, but sometimes it's the little things that really get you, too.


"People..."

People telling me to do something just as I'm about to do it.

"I know I'm not running..."

People who block doorways. It just happened to me over the weekend, walking in and a family of 4 entering before me all blocked the way for myself and the guy behind me.

I know I'm not running and I don't need to maintain a pace, but have some spatial awareness for gods sake.

"How can anyone..."

Littering. How can anyone be that lazy and disgusting? Do they not use bins in their own homes?

"Public speakers who use..."

Public speakers who use the "I can't hear you!" ploy to elicit a louder response from the audience.

"When people reschedule..."

When people reschedule and break plans. You had me waiting all week for our fun night out and you want me to wait some more only to realize there's nothing to wait for anymore because you decide to cancel?! Make a decision, do you want to hang out or not?! Flakers really annoy me.

"People who constantly..."

Giphy

People who constantly play the victim card to get unearned sympathy and make no effort to change their behavior or circumstances.

"You pay for the service..."

Cable TV. You pay for the service, then they double dip with the shittiest commercials. I dont even get who makes these commercials, 99 percent of them actively make me avoid the company. I cut the cord but my parents still watch this mind numbing crap everyday.

"When someone..."

When someone is speaking with their mouth full. It especially pisses me off if they wait to say something until right after they stuffed their mouth.

"People who constantly..."

People who constantly belittle me and give me advice in a condescending tone when they're aware I have experience in a certain field.

"When someone..."

When someone enters my room, then leaves the door open when they walk out. I then close the door. They then walk back in five minutes later, then leaves the door open when they walk out.

It's a repeating cycle. This also happens with the room light.

When I say I'd prefer to have my door closed and light off, could you please at least try? Forgetting after the first few times I get, but you can't get it through your head after many years? Jeez.

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?
