If you're not careful, you'll find 10 million and one things that will drive your blood pressure through the roof. This can be a stressful world to live in sometimes. I mean... look around, America.

But I'll start: People who aren't aware of their surroundings in public annoy the hell out of me. They probably deserve to have a shopping cart rammed into their ankles, but that's just me. (Not that I've personally experienced that or anything.)


After Redditor ICantThinkofaUsertag asked the online community, "What really makes your bloood boil?" people shared–– and commiserated.

"Life consists of..."

People that aren't willing to listen to someone else's opinion. Life consists of developing opinions and constantly changing them. Once you form one, it isn't immediately set in stone, which many don't seem to understand. Just because you feel a certain way doesn't mean you shouldn't listen to someone else's point of view.

"Suffice it to say..."

Entitlement in all of its forms. Like when some c**t drives on the shoulder to skip ahead of traffic, for example.

Or on a more personal note, I have an uncle (Dad's brother) who owes my parents quite a lot of money, yet he has convinced himself he doesn't have to pay because they're better off than he is. And keeps asking for more at times, or always expects them to pay for expenses on their joint properties.

Suffice it to say, I haven't spoken to him in half a decade. If I see him, I probably won't be able to hold myself, that kind of entitlement is absolutely infuriating.

"Seeing people..."

Seeing people constantly compare themselves to others to try to put people down or make themselves feel better.

"When people don't..."

Right now? When people don't keep their distance when I'm out trying to social distance for the sake of my family. Get the hell away from me, get some awareness for the people around you instead of just thinking about yourself.

"When I'm trying..."

When I'm trying to rinse a crumb down the kitchen sink and it just keeps shooting one way or the other and won't go down the damn drain. Bonus if it goes up the side of the sink and sticks there. Puts me into murder rage.

"And rarely..."

People being abused, especially vulnerable ones like children or the elderly.

Animals too.

Bullies in general as well, since they are related to the above.

Repeated unreliability or really making a nuisance of yourself with no consideration of others can be really annoying too.

And rarely the dishonesty that some people display online, though it is generally not worth getting upset over things, sometimes it is just frustrating because some people just cannot argue.

"That at some point..."

That at some point in your life someone might have been giving you obvious hints but you were too dumb to see it and now you will never know and they will always be 'just another person you knew.'

"Where he gets his info..."

Conspiracy theorists.

I work with a close-minded conspiracy nut. It's mentally draining to listen to the stuff he goes on about. "COVID 19 is a hoax created by the democrats to undermine the Trump administration, there hasn't been a single confirmed case anywhere in the world. Why do you think they closed travel so they don't find out the rest of the world has never heard of it" or "George Floyd is a crisis actor and the cop that killed him is a f*g from the London ballet and another actor, since COVID didn't work now they are inciting riots to make Trump look bad." He also rants about mainstream media is fake etc. This is what I listen to for ten hours a day. Where he gets his info I have no clue, he doesn't have a smart phone - still uses a flip phone and isn't computer literate.

"I have a friend..."

Know it alls that don't actually know it all.. I have a friend that just can't admit he doesn't know something, if you try to tell him something cool, he apparently already knows. Even if you call him out, he'll just say "Yeah, I know, I thought we were talking about something else".

When every job listing..."

When every job listing needs 2+ years experience in the field. You cant get the job without the experience. You cant get the experience without the job. You are forced either to lie or get paid in exposure for two years.

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
