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

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

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.

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.

"Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the hottest and dumbest of them all?"

I know that is not verbatim the original quote, but it is close to the original.

Brains and beauty are always intertwined.

So often people confess about wanting to be more of the other.

No one is ever happy where they are. Why are we like that?

If given a chance, like a Disney movie, how do you trade?

Is it superficial to want looks over knowledge? Or vice versa?

Let's get deep....

Redditor BroodyBatman wanted to know who was willing to give up a little bit of brains for a whole lot of beauty, so they asked:

"Would you give up 15-20 IQ points to be really, REALLY ridiculously good looking? Why?"

The world is not so big a place, is it?

While we like to think of ourselves as isolated in this billion plus planet, there can be a lot more crossover than we think. We call these instances coincidences, hoping to find the right word to explain what happens when a one-in-a-million chance occurs.

If there's over seven billion plus people in the world, turns out you can run into these 'coincidences' more often than you think.

Let me make a quick point about conspiracy theories: Do people understand just how difficult it is for many of the conspiracies they claim to believe in to come to fruition? We're talking global levels of cooperation here, by the way, and it's clear the world can't even get itself out of a pandemic sooo...

But thankfully, there are some more innocent comnspiracies out there. For example, a former classmate once told me that he was convinced he couldn't remember all the items on his shopping list because of shopping elves distracting him to buy other things he didn't exactly need.

To be fair, he was a little stoned at the time and I told him he might want to consider just writing and referring to a shopping list.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor ConcentrateNext1734 asked the online community,

"What’s a conspiracy that you believe, but the majority of people don’t believe or know about?"

Children are very impressionable. They're also little humans, remember, and all quite different. Some are more afraid of some things than others. When I was a kid, some of my classmates were utterly terrified of Chucky, the killer doll.

I think he worked the best in the first film and to a larger extent in the second, but after that? Those movies got a bit ridiculous, wouldn't you agree?

Well, the memories linger, as you can imagine.

People took us on a trip down memory lane after Redditor teacatpeng asked the online community,

"What’s something you saw (as a kid) that gave you nightmares for a long time?"
