It's easy to make a mountain out of a mole hill, isn't it? Maybe it's the day you've had, or maybe it's the final straw on the back of the camel, but it can hit you out of nowhere. You'll be having a grand ol' time at a dinner party, when suddenly you snag your pocket on a kitchen drawer handle for the 37th time, and you officially lose your mind in front of family and friends. Sound familiar? That's what these furious tales are all about.


Reddit user, u/Defenseless_squirrel, wanted to know what sends you up the wall when they asked:

What's a mild inconvenience that drives you f-cking crazy?

Nothing Worse Than Wet Elbows

Washing your face in the bathroom sink and the water trickling down your arms towards your elbows

Bonus Fury if you're wearing a sweater and get the sleeves wet to remind you of your stupid mistake for hours to come.

It's Like It's A System Rigged Against You

Stoplights feel timed so that if you go in one direction for a few miles and you have to stop at a red light, chances are you will have to stop at all the red lights in that direction.

You're Literally And Figuratively Interrupting The Flow

when someone goes to shower/bathroom right as you were about to.

You need to announce your intentions some time in advance. Not enough time for them to usurp though.

You Can Probably Talk Elsewhere

When two people in a shop stop, trolleys side by side and block the entire aisle just to have a conversation.

"excuse me"

Death glares from both of them

F-ckers, you're the ones blocking the aisle. Go park your carts somewhere else and talk.

Just Leave Me Alone

Walking through the city late at night after work. When I'm crossing a side street near the train station, taxis will inevitably see me coming and pull up right in front of me so I have to walk around the back of them. Every single night. I tried a different route but it's longer, I tried waving them off, but they just come quicker. I tried running so I can get there before they block my path but they just accelerate.

I think the only solution is to run up and do a hood slide.

Stay In One Place

Clicking on a button, except that the button jumps just as you're clicking and you get the wrong button. This happens often when an app opens a new window and it takes time to fill up all the contents.

Snags. Snags For Days.

Apparently I am the exact height to have my pockets get caught on my drawers in the kitchen. I swear my basketball shorts will reach for the drawer handles and grab them. Makes me see red.

Prime Example Of First World Problems

When my Bluetooth doesn't connect in the car.

It makes me want to stab my phone even though it's not a big deal at all and has zero effect on my life.

Someone Will Burn For This

Getting all comfortable in bed, well positioned and everything, then realising you forgot something in the living room/kitchen and having to get up and get it.

Oblivious Drivers. Not ones texting, they know they're being an a--.

I'm talking about those people who honestly have no clue how to drive properly, yet totally think they're good at it. Leaves me fuming. Especially when they're putting other people's lives in danger.

JUST. LOOK.

At work, the bathroom stalls can be locked (obviously) and you'll have a small red sign to indicate that it's occupied.

Nonetheless there are always people trying to open the door just to make sure that it's really unoccupied. It drives me nuts. Can't you let me sh-t in peace!

Two things : I didn't know there were so many colorblind people. You're forgiven. Every one else that try to justify their trying to barge in because they "want you to hurry", you're not forgiven. Go sh-t in the wood and let me finish in peace. Yeah, I sometime play Candy crush while I sh-t. So?

Have you ever been reading a book, watching a movie, or even sitting down for a fantastical cartoon and began to salivate when the characters dig into some doozy of a made up food?

You're not alone.

Food is apparently fertile ground for creativity. Authors, movie directors, and animators all can't help but put a little extra time and effort into the process of making characters' tasty delights mouthwatering even for audiences on the other side of the screen.

Read on for a perfect mixture of nostalgia and hunger.

AllWhammyNoMorals asked, "What's a fictional food you've always wanted to try?"

Some people were all about the magical foods eaten in the magical places. They couldn't help but wish they could bite into something with fantastical properties and unearthly deliciousness.

Nutritious

"Enchanted golden apple" -- DabbingIsSo2015

"The Minecraft eating sounds make me hungry" -- FishingHobo

"Gotta love that health regeneration" -- r2celjazz

"Pretty sure those are based off the golden apples that grant immortality. Norse mythology I think?" -- Raven_of_Blades

Take Your Pick

"Nearly any food from Charlie and the Chocolate factory" -- CrimsonFox100

"Came here to say snozzberries!" -- Utah_Writer

"Everlasting Gobstoppers #1, but also when they're free to roam near the chocolate river and the entire environment is edible." -- devo9er

Peak Efficiency

"Lembas" -- Roxwords

"The one that fills you with just a bite? My fat a** would be making sandwiches with two lembas breads and putting bacon, avocado and cheese inside. Then probably go for some dessert afterwards. No wonder why those elves are all skinny, eating just one measly bite of this stuff." -- sushister

Some people got stuck on the foods they saw in the cartoons they watched growing up. The vibrant colors, the artistic sounds, and the exaggerated movements all come together to form some good-looking fake grub.

The One and Only

"Krabby patty 🍔" -- Cat_xox

"And a kelp shake" -- titsclitsntennerbits

"As a kid I always pretended burgers from McDonalds were Krabby Patties, heck from time to time I still do for the nostalgia of it all. Many of my friends did the same thing." -- Thisissuchadragtodo

Cheeeeeeeeese

"The pizza from an extremely goofy movie. The stringy cheese just looked magical lol" -- ES_Verified

"The pizza in the old TMNT cartoon as well." -- gate_of_steiner85

"Only bested by the pizza from All Dogs Go to Heaven." -- Purdaddy

Get a Big Old Chunk

"Those giant turkey drumsticks in old cartoons that characters would tear huge chunks out of. Those things looked amazing, turkey drumsticks in real life suck and are annoying to eat."

-- Ozwaldo

Slurp, Slurp, Slurp

"Every bowl of ramen on any anime, ever." -- Cat_xox

"Studio Ghibli eggs and bacon" -- DrManhattan_DDM

"Honestly, any food in anime. I swear to god half the budget no matter what the studio goes into making the food look absolutely delicious." -- Viridun

Finally, some highlighted the things that aren't quite so far-fetched, but still far enough away that it's nothing we'll be eating anytime soon.

That tease can be enough to make your mouth water.

What's In It??

"Butter beer" -- Damn_Dog_Inappropes

"came here to say this. i was pretty disappointed with the universal studio version which was over the top sweet. it was more of a butterscotch root beer. i imagine butter beer to be something more like butter and beer, which wouldn't be crazy sweet, but would have a very deep rich flavor" -- crazyskiingsloth

Slice of the Future

"The microwave pizzas in back to the future two" -- biggiemick91

"I've been fascinated with those for years! They just look so good!" -- skoros

As Sweet As They Had

"The Turkish Delight from Lion Witch & Wardrobe. The real ones I had weren't bad but nothing special." -- spoon_shaped_spoon

"Came here to say this. I know it's a real thing, but I always imagined that it must have been amazing to betray your siblings over." -- la_yes

"You're used to freely available too sweet sweets. For a WW2 era schoolkid, it would have represented all the sweets for an entire year." -- ResponsibleLimeade



Here's hoping you made it through the list without going into kitchen for some snack you didn't actually need.

When a movie rakes in a ton of cash at the box office, the studio that made it has only one thing on its mind: "How do we keep shaking this money tree?"

Unfortunately, that means they make sequels, sometimes sequels on sequels on sequels.

Oftentimes I like to do my best Ghostface impression and aggressively ask people what their favorite scary movies are. Because I personally have a lot! At the same time, I'm also terrified that at any point, I could end up getting my head punched off by Jason Vorhees (Part 8 of the series--best one IMO).

I hate hypocrites. They are the bane of my existence. All you have to do is stand behind your words. How hard is that? You said them. I especially get peeved when people bloviate on a topic and condemn and holler but then when it comes to them doing it... silence.

Redditor u/ErrForceOnes wanted to know about the moments people chose to curiously "pay no mind" by asking... What is a GIANT hypocrisy that no one seems to mind?
