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?"

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

They say you can never have enough of a good thing, but we all know there's plenty of stuff that you'd like to just go, "Oh, no thank you" about and that would be that.

Unfortunately, that pretty much never actually works.

Try telling the electric company "no thanks" when the way too high bill comes, or just putting up a hand to decline work for the next week or so because you're just kind of over it.

Consequences and repercussions, folks. But you've got to admit some stuff would just be better if it was... less.

Life is a mystery full of mysteries.

Some we'll finally get, some will stay a conundrum forever.

Sometimes no matter how much we study or agonize over a piece of information, it just doesn't click.

But that's okay, we're all here to commiserate.
