Everyone has pet peeves, little things that irritate them more than others, but sometimes those pet peeves evolve into a whole new level of irritant.

Whether it's subbing their toe or getting cut off in traffic, there are plenty of things that send folks into an immediate rage.


Reddit user u/4ninawells asked:

"What small thing takes your anger from zero to 60 in one second flat?"

Having my expectation of the finish line moved is something I really need to work on in terms of going from 0 to 60 mad.

You get off work at 4:30. At 4:00, you're daydreaming about the rest of your day after work. 4:15 comes around, and someone has something on fire that needs worked on for an hour.

You're cooking a meal. The sauce is simmering, just need to sear the meat. You open the refrigerator to get it and find that someone has already consumed the ingredient you were depending on. Now you need to change your plan or go to the store.

You finish cleaning the house and sit down to relax. The cat vomits all over the stairs. Back to cleaning.

You're grocery shopping. On your way to the car with your full cart, you get a text message, "Can you pick up eggs?". Back to the store!

People who don't understand how right of way works while driving and then proceed to honk at me because they made an incorrect and unpredictable maneuver almost causing an accident

-drawniw14

Yes! Or people who try to wave you through when it's not your turn. Like just follow the rules and we can all get through this together, now is not the time to be weirdly polite.

Hitting my head on an inanimate object like the corner of a cabinet.

Have no clue why because I don't normally have a temper, but that happening makes me want to grab an axe and chop the fricking thing down.

If a building has a set of double doors, obviously one is used for entering the building and the other one is used for exiting the building. Now...WHY THE MESS WOULD YOU TRY TO PUSH BY ME WHEN THERE IS LITERALLY ANOTHER DOOR RIGHT THERE!

People not turning on their blinker, slamming on their brakes to turn, and then turning on their blinker the second before they turn

The vacuum cleaner... odd I know, but when I was a kid the noise used to wake me up on cleaning days. I hate everything about the vacuum and actually dented a wall one time trying to fight with the cords on the damned thing.

Biting my cheek when I'm eating something. There's a split second of directionless rage before I'm just mildly angry with myself.

Driving home from grocery store, make a turn and hear the groceries all start rolling around the trunk. I get FURIOUS.

Pushy people who don't accept "no" for an answer and pester the hell out of you until you're basically forced to get 'mean'.

Often followed by a variation of "Wow, no need to be so rude to me, I was just asking you something." Lack of social and self awareness in people like this is astounding.

-KevinParker_IRL

It's not lack of social awareness; It's intentional. They're trying to disguise their obvious disrespect of you by trying to paint you as being the unreasonable party.

Getting my earbud cord snagged on something and them ripping from my ears sends me into a rage like no other.

I have since moved on to bluetooth. Years later and I'm still pissed.

-madtrippinfool

Came here to say this. Straight from zero to wanting to watch the world burn.

Everyone talks about how the 20s are supposed to be the time of our lives. And that's largely true. But it's not all wine and roses.

Don't disturb my beauty sleep! That's the one rule I have––and thankfully I live alone, so there isn't anyone to bother me, which is fabulous. But that doesn't mean I'm immune to getting woken up in the middle of the night. The worst way I can think of off the top of my head? The time a drunk guy wandered into my friend's yard and started banging on the window while I was trying to sleep. It was 3 a.m. The incident also gave me the fright of my life!

People told us about the experiences that yanked them out of dreamland after Redditor GratefulD_86 asked the online community,

"What is the worst way you've been woken up?"

I love food! Maybe a little too much. It's been an especially amorous relationship over this pandemic. And I know I'm not alone.

All of our palettes are tuned to our own personal tastes. And sometimes certain items and combinations of tastes can leave others less than enticed.

I've lost track of all the side-eye I've gotten when I declare how much I enjoy PINEAPPLE on pizza. I said it. I meant it. Fight me. Let's discuss who else has eclectic tastes.

Redditor u/CatVideoFest wanted to discuss the mixing of certain ingredients that don't leave the best taste in one's mouth by asking:
