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.

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?

Let me be real for a second.

Every time I listen to Bjork's "Unravel," my heart breaks a bit.

Have you ever listened to it?

It's on Homogenic, her third studio album, and it's incredible, passionate, smartly produced and a great showcase for her stupendous voice.

That song? An emotional rollercoaster, for sure.

There's tons of great music out there, though, and even more sad and gorgeous songs to discover.

Unfortunately, a friendship could really end at any point in life.

Friends grow apart, but also, sometimes, it's just necessary to say goodbye to your relationship with a friend.

Maybe they aren't the right type of friend for you anymore, or maybe something has happened in their lives to make them self-destructive and toxic.

The reasons are many, and they are all sad.

Certain personalities show up at almost every party like clockwork.

There's always that person who get's too drunk, someone awkwardly standing in the corner nursing a drink, the person who's not having a good time no matter what and the person babysitting the crowd they came with.

When there's alcohol—or any other substances—and the pressure of a social situation, all sorts of quirks will come out. We wanted to know what people thought their country would act like if they were a person attending a party.

Irrespective of men's sexual identity or preference, there are men who hate sports, and there are men who love musical theater. Do participating in either activity make men straight or gay?
