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.

Well that was a close call. That is everyone's main life mantra. If you really think about it, you'll know it to be true. Everyday we live, is another day we've survived, and death isn't the only thing we frequently sidestep. I have lost track of the amount of times my heart has almost gotten me into trouble. If I had been able to be with the people I thought I wanted in the past, I'd be in a mental ward right about now. Dodging a bullet doesn't even begin to cover it.

Redditor u/Not-an-Ocelot wanted to hear about the times that have made people give some extra thanks by asking... What's the biggest bullet you've ever dodged?

When your time is up, your time is up. And when we march off into the afterlife it feels like everyone wants one of two or two things. People want to go out in a blaze of glory and/or in peace and without pain. I don't know if both is possible but I'll choose option two please. What I know for sure is I definitely don't want to be smoted by a stupid death. Like, Lord, please don't let me die choking on fried chicken and an XL frozen Appletini at the Dallas BBQ because I was laughing to hard at my own jokes. Please.

Redditor u/BlueD_ wanted everyone to fess up about the times they almost met their maker in a less than dignified manner by asking... What's the dumbest way you almost died?

We may not know it, but sometimes things that seem routine or are just one of our personal habits can really hold back our lives.

One little change to cut those things, or to include new things, can really change the quality of our lives for the better. We have to be willing to drop old routines, which is hard and scary; and we need to be willing to accept new ideas into our space, which is also hard and scary.

They get to witness the lead-up to the couple's important, deeply symbolic day. Sitting at the table in that context offers those industry professionals a glimpse of the mundane dynamics of couples before the big event.
