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

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.

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.

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?

Scams That Are All Too Easy To Fall For

Reddit user ChoiceLine2569 asked: 'What's a scam that's really easy to fall for?'

Let's face it: Not even the wisest person is immune from being hoodwinked and swindled out of their hard-earned cash.

With every scheme that is exposed, another new tactic seems to quickly take its place.

The increase in deceptive emails and phone calls under the guise of unpaid fees or fines that don't exist is enough to make skeptics out of everyone–which can't be good for your social interactions with friends and colleagues since not everyone is out to get you.

But it's good to be familiar with the most common fraudulent acts in order to protect yourself.

How people manage their money can be a very contentious issue.

Some people have an air-tight budget, which they wouldn't dare stray from, even if they aren't even close to living paycheck to paycheck.

Others don't worry too much about how they spend day in and day out, even if they are still aware of how much they have in their checking and saving accounts.

Then there are those who love to spend money and are very good at doing so, but the concept of savings and a budget seems to escape them.

Often finding themselves confused by being in over their heads in credit card debt, despite the thousand dollar shopping spree they went on last week.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

That has always been one of my favorite life sayings.

Whether it's true or not is all subjective.

Maybe it's a truth.

Maybe it's a lie unfortunate people sell themselves.

And at some point in life, we're ALL unfortunate, here and there, now and again.

What is sexy to some is a stomach-turner to others.

Who hasn't been out with friends hunting for love interests and then been left shooketh by certain people's choices?
