We all have an opinion on how things should be done, as well as little ticks get on our nerves, if not outright make our skin crawl.

When someone doesn't agree with this opinion or exhibits the exact behavior which makes us tick, it's usually easy enough to let bygones be bygones, and get over it.

Of course, there are extreme exceptions to this, and sometimes we simply find ourselves unable to accept someone else's different opinion, and will not tolerate when people do certain things.

No matter how petty others may find it.


Redditor HallZac99 was curious to hear the petty little opinions which people will never, under any circumstances, be swayed from, leading them to ask:
"What is the smallest, pettiest hill you'll still die on?"

I Will ALWAYS Dispute That Charge!

"Bank of America charged me $2 for a miscellaneous charge, in 1997. I called to ask what it was for because there was no reason."

"The lady on the phone said, well, I can't tell you because it is miscellaneous."

"I asked her to then please reverse it and she refused."

Everyone Has An Opinion

A Surprising Lack Of Logic

"The fact that you need to carry a pen/pencil for international flights to fill out the customs form on the plane."

"I was on a flight in May this year and upon realizing we had to fill the form out before descent, I asked the flight attendant for a pencil."

"She looked at me like I had four eyes and proceeded to inform me she doesn’t have one."

"Looking around, other people on the flight were asking her for one as well."

"For the life of me, I don’t understand why there is an expectation to pack something to write with on an international flight."

"I am not thinking of packing a pencil on my 2 week vacation to Aruba where I will proceed to not use it the entire time."

"If it’s standard to fill these forms out on flights, the flight crew should very reasonably be expected to lend passengers a pen or a pencil."- pascalgoz

We all have something which will get on our nerves till the bitter end.

All we can do is take a deep breath, and hope for change.

And maybe make sure we don't find ourselves doing that very thing to others...

What is a "black sheep" anyway?

It used to mean a person who brought shame or embarrassment to a family, but it's more often used now to mean the member who is just very different from everyone else—sometimes in a good way.
