There are some things that are pretty much universally irritating: self important people, someone cutting you off in traffic, or those scam robocalls, for example.

Sometimes things that seem like they are only mildly irritating or inconvenient for others drive us up the wall, though.


Reddit user u/Jimmys_Rustled asked:.

"What small thing pisses you off more than usual?"

10.

People who act like they're more important than everyone else when getting off a flight.

People who lose all common courtesy while traveling.

When your curtain leaves a tiny gap letting a ray of sunshine penetrate your eyeballs

It's always aimed directly at your pillow, too.

When I see some just leave their shopping cart in the lot when they are right next to the cart return

The fitted sheet coming off the mattress in the middle of the night. It's like an alarm clock that is going off right next to my ear. Impossible to ignore. I can't fall back to sleep unless I put the sheet back on.

People not letting people off the subway or out of elevators.

-wsmiteh

Getting off the subway I just keep walking through them while yelling "I have to get out before you get in! That's how this works!" And it usually helps

5.

These new YouTube ads where it's two ads instead of one.

4.

Getting home after being out all day, taking off my pants, shoes, etc. and then having to go back out for something stupid.

-bad_toe_tattoos

Once my wife takes her bra off for the day, it engages a 12 hour emotional lockdown where she wouldn't step outside for a herd of the worlds cutest puppies giving away gold bars.

3.

People continuing to explain something to me after I've said "I know" at least thrice.

-triangeek1466

2.

People asking questions and then not listening for the answer. I have a different job now because my last boss did this so often.

A lot of people with ADD have been responding and being kind of hard on themselves for knowing they do this. So I just want to say, I don't think that's the same thing. If you're making the effort and are not able to pay attention, that's fundamentally different from just choosing not to.

-skunkwaffle

1.

People who always try to 1 up your situation. Tell them you've got a cold and they'll respond "I've had pneumonia for 10 years!" or something.

I love characters I love to hate.

Even when I hate them I can always find the reason they're involved in the story, so I find it difficult to want them to be erased.

Certain characters flaws and the most heinous decisions are written to further story and bolster the audience's love for the heroes.

So as much as we loathe them, we need them; much like our enemies in real life. That is what makes compelling drama.

Redditor u/nekoandCJ wanted to spill the tea on the characters we could do without in our favorite stories by asking:

People of reddit, what fictional character do you hate with a passion?

When we're kids, we expect the adults in our lives to notice everything, know everything, and maintain a just, sound moral order.

Psh, don't hold your breath.

Modern medicine is a marvel. It's the reason why we've been able to effectively eradicate some serious diseases and improve the quality of health care around the world. When you take these two things into consideration, it's easy to see why vaccine hesitancy can be such a frustrating topic for people right now.

Many people would not be able to survive without the benefits of modern medicine. That's what we learned after Redditor forevernostalgic23 asked the online community,

"If modern medicine didn't exist what medical condition would have died from or been severely impacted by?"
