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?

Foreigners Break Down Their Favorite American Meals

Growing up, I had zero idea that the food I ate daily was "cultural."

It didn't occur to me until I was a kid when my mother had to gently explain to me that not everyone ate rice & beans.

She had to explain it because we were about to eat at a white friend's house for the first time.

People Share The Best Ways To Politely End A Conversation

Have you ever been caught in a conversation you didn't want to be in? Or start talking to someone only to realize you want to stop? Perhaps you were talking to a friend when the conversation took a turn for the uncomfortable.

Whatever the case, we've all been in those situations where we want the conversation to stop, but don't want to be rude.

When I was in third grade, I asked if I voted on American Idol that week. I said yes, since everyone seemed to, but of course I didn't know what American Idol was. Being pop culture challenged, I thought it was a ship. Needless to say everyone was confused when I was asked who I voted for and I replied, "What do you mean? I voted for American Idol!"

It didn't take me long to realize something was amiss, and I probably would've very rudely excused myself from the conversation (fueled by my embarrassment) if my teacher hadn't called us to attention at that very moment.

Luckily, the people of Reddit were willing to share their methods to politely end a conversation when Redditor Spritti33asked:

"How does someone politely end a conversation with a person who won't stop talking?"

People Divulge What They Think Happens After We Die

Death is a certainty in life, but what happens after death may be one of those mysteries we never solve. I've always believed that when we're dead, we're dead. However, there are plenty of other theories.

Is there an afterlife? Do we face a supernatural judge who decides whether we go to heaven or hell? Do we get reincarnated as soon as we die? Or is death truly final?

These questions prompted Redditor Maleficent_Team430 to ask:

"What do you think happens to you after you die?"
