We all have things that annoy the hell ouf of us. Learning to be tolerant of them can be nearly impossible. Here are a few of mine: People who walk slowly through the city. People who drive under the speed limit. People who don't fact check. People who are dismissive of science. People who don't read my articles.

The messy roommate.

People who don't keep things clean when living in shared house. Wash your damn pots and dishes after use.

butterpopkorn

My 35F roommate who cooks Mac & Cheese in my pots during the day, then decides to leave without cleaning up. I come home at 5 to a rock-hard cheesy crusted mess that takes forever to clean. F*ck you, Kristen.

Back off, for real.

People who don't understand personal space.

Ashley561kelly

I hate that so much, that I actually found a solution. When someone gets really close to you, take a step back with one foot, leaving the other where it was. It will create an arms length of space that they can't come closer..... unless they want to straddle your leg.

Passive-aggressive insecurity.

Teachers/professors/instructors who are really insecure and take it out on students. Like you ask a question about the way they did something (why did you take points off for that, don't we have to move 20 yards during that choreography, etc) and they take it as a personal offense and get defensive and bitchy. I instantly lose all respect for people like that.

I had a professor in college who would ask if there was anything she could improve on in her lectures and whatnot, and after the second comment she received was met with such heated defensiveness, everyone else just put their hands down.

crudler81089

That's when I would put my hand up and tell her that she needs to handle criticism better.

superH3R01N3

Seriously, get out.

People talking/texting in movie theaters.

_Redoubt_

It's the main reason my wife and I barely go to the movies anymore. The last we saw was A Quiet Place and the kids were surprisingly good about keeping their screens dim and not talking.

Nothin pisses me off more than when the phone screen lights up.

Speedr1804

And if you don't want to tip, stay home.

Being rude to a cashier/server/cleaning people. You wouldn't speak to them like that if they were on the other side of the register so why would you do that when they're at their job? The frustration is towards a company but it's misplaced on the person providing the service. If they're sh*tty, respectfully tell them you're unsatisfied and leave.

taylorshea823

Wholeheartedly agree. I try to have grace for those people. In my years of working as a cashier and barista I've come to understand that sometimes these people take it out on me because there's something else going on in their lives where they feel like they've lost control (family in the hospital, divorce, financial issues, etc.) and I'm an easy target. I'm a young, petite woman with a smile almost permanently plastered to her face.

Sure, their behavior still sucks and I don't enjoy being the human punching bag. But I know I sure as heck am not going to make matters better by raising my voice back.

On the other hand, it's one thing for customers to yell at me, an adult, but if they go after my teenaged coworkers, I will be quite upset.

Harhaiilija

Someone struck a nerve.

People that enter somewhere busy like a Costco, find the worst choke point like the exit then stand there and go through their bag looking for a napkin or some other sh*t. MOVE TO THE SIDE! THERE ARE DOZENS OF PEOPLE TRYING TO PASS YOU

KruppeTheWise

Ok THIS. the amount of full grown adults who are unaware of their own surroundings is wild to me. All it takes is like 3 steps to the right or left and you'd be out of the way. Plus slowwwwww walkers. Also those certain individuals who just leave their cart in the middle of the aisle or in a busy area... like dude I will move your cart to a place where you can't find it. Don't test me. Geez I just really, really hate the grocery store on busy days.

toiletpaperwizard

There is a surprising amount of people who get off escalators, take one step forward and then stop to look where they're going next. It's quite possibly the worst place OF ALL TIMES to stop and block people behind you, cause they can not take a step back without falling or hurting themselves. Why the f*ck can't people take the extra five steps to move to the side and then look around?! It is really not that hard and I assure you, you won't get completely lost or unable to find your way back. God, this makes me so frustrated, haha!

ellzo

It's not illegal to shout "GET THE F*CK OUT OF THE WAY!" at them. It should be encouraged, really.

GunpowderLad

It should. Every time you do it and it's justified, everyone around you offers you a high 5, and maybe you get a nice badge or something.

qdf3433

Jumpy web browsers. Yeahhhhh.

When the page doesn't fully load by the time you click on something then BAM it does and everything was shifted and look you just clicked on an ad and you're being redirected to a new page.

Madisonstarr

I have to log in to the 'Cloud' every day at work and there's a stupid questionnaire that pops up exactly where the 'continue' button was half a second before and it drives me insane when I press it.

NeilTheBaby

Headphones are like a security blanket TBH.

I'm a pretty mellow guy until my earphones get yanked out of my ears.

sonybuddha

Or people bothering you to take off your headphones only to ask for a smoke. I'm not even smoking and don't smoke!

MNDFND

I'm gay AF.

The sound of my own voice on a recording.

AuditorOfTheNight

Mine sounds like someone high-pitched my voice and is mocking me.

I hate that bitch on recordings. She's so rude.

oh-my

Mine sounds like a little boy with a severe sinus infection.

theflexorcist

This, especially when they grow up to be president.

Parents that raise their children to have the mindset that they are entitled to everything.

MostlyDeepThoughts

It annoys the shift out of me when someone feels entitled to everything. I don't think it's just the parents. Friends too have equal contribution or more to this kind of behavior. I believe One shares their experience more with their friends than parents. When friends give sh*tty advice to them like "yeah you're right, you don't deserve this or that" without giving them a different perspective on the matter then they stop seeing within themselves and start seeing the problem in others. And feel they are right, entitled to have everything according to them.

You know what would be great?

If society could just stop with arbitrary dress codes. If you're not working with the public, why should you have to dress up so much? If you're a police officer, then it makes sense that you'd wear a uniform that identifies you as a police officer. If you're Ted from IT who sits in the backroom all day, I really don't see why you have to come in every day in a suit and tie.

Let's just toss them out, shall we?

People Share Their Best 'F**k This, I'm Outta Here' Experiences

As much as many of us don't like to disrupt the status quo, there is only so much time a person can tolerate a miserable situation before things become so unbearable that they ultimately have to peace out.

For some people, it takes a while for them to reach a breaking point. Eventually, there comes a time when they realize their self-worth is more important than continuing to please others who don't appreciate them for the sake of keeping up with appearances.

People Break Down Which Things Always Taste Good Whether They're Served Hot Or Cold

As we enter into the summer months, people now have to decide whether or not they want their morning coffee to be hot or iced.

Lucky for them, it's delicious either way.

One could make an argument that foods that are equally delicious hot or cold are perhaps the best, or at least the most reliable.

And this can include foods which are not customarily sold both hot and cold (cold pizza anyone?).

Redditor NectarineOther4989 was curious to hear which foods people enjoy either hot or cold, leading them to ask:

"What is something that tastes good both hot and cold?"

People Dispel Common Hoaxes Some Folks Still Believe

Those who are truly superstitious have trouble shaking off customs which others might find somewhat silly.

These include holding your breath when passing a cemetery, throwing salt over your shoulder after spilling it, or not stepping on cracks for fear of breaking their mother's backs.

But even though it has been irrefutably proven that there is absolutely no validity to these superstitions, these same people will likely never stop performing these customs.

Nor will some others ever stop believing myths and hoaxes which have likewise proven to be one-hundred percent false.

Redditor Jimbo_Jigs was curious to learn the things people will never stop believing, despite ample evidence to the contrary, leading them to ask:

"What is proven to be a hoax but people still believe it to be true?"
