Whether it's a minor inconveniences, people being unaware of their annoyances, or things that just don't make sense, it can stir up some pretty strong emotions.
Now, anger is a totally normal and healthy emotion, but sometimes a high level of anger doesn't seem warranted. However, when those minor inconveniences add up, suddenly we are on a rampage just looking to get mad at it every time it happens.
It could be from someone cutting you off in traffic or the sound of someone chewing. Regardless, it can cause some serious internal turmoil for some people.
Redditor BaconBear36 wanted to know:
"What is something that makes you unreasonably angry?"
Try not to get mad reading this.
Get out of the way!
"People who are walking out of a shop and then suddenly decide to stop smack bang right outside blocking the door."
"Just f*cking move to the f*cking side."
"Especially when there's like two or three people taking a whole sidewalk side by side. Sort of just waddling around without thinking that maaaaybe there's people behind them that want to get around.
A lot of people have some horrible spatial awareness. At least in NYC they get some minor sh*t for it usually. Because walking is a main form of traveling obviously."
"Riding the metro in DC was like this. Train pulls into station. Doors open. Bunch of folks need to get out before others can board. Those waiting to board stand right in front and make you squeeze past them to exit. Situation awareness duh. Step aside until all are off the train."
"Oh god the worst is when you're on a busy escalator and the person in front of you steps off and just stands there. Like HELLO I'm coming through and literally cannot stop. MOVE!"
"Recipes that start with an essay about the author."
"I don't need to know your f*cking life story, Jessica, I'm trying to figure out how to make fried chicken."
"I've been scrolling for 15 minutes, is there actually a recipe on this damn page?!"
"Force hyped youtubers who just screaming around for no reason."
"The kids watch these. And think that this level of overreaction is normal."
"That's the scary part about it. They'll replicate the behavior in public and eventually realize not everyone is shouting and screaming over every little thing."
"Banks. Why the f*ck would an institution that almost all people are required to use have shorter hours than an average job?"
"I'll add government facilities to that, DMV should be 24 hours."
"Loud chewing noises, especially if you're an open-mouthed chewer, double especially if you're also a lip smacker."
"I get so angry from the chewing sounds sometimes I just get up in the middle of a meal and leave."
"Sometimes I'm the only one eating the meal. Still happens."
This is actually a disorder called Misophonia.
Slow drivers at the front the line.
"People that move out of a lane so they can secure first place at a red light then drive like a f*cking funeral procession."
"WHY BRO?!?! That spot is for movers and shakers!!"
"Seriously. Duck into the next lane at the last second, and when the light turns green, theirs so slow that the cars that were behind them in the next lane are passing them... ugh. Just get off my road."
"Yeah, when someone cuts in front of me, I'm thinking, 'You better be moving.' And then they don't..."
"Similar to this: people who sit there and pressure the light, constantly rolling forward little by little and going way over the line, only to drive like a grandma when it actually does turn green. Bro are you in a hurry or not, you can't be both!!"
People assuming you're shy.
"When people tell me I'm shy or quiet. No. I'm simply uncomfortable. I can be very loud and extroverted in a comfortable environment surrounded by people I'm comfortable with, but that's obviously not what I'm doing right now if I'm shy and quiet."
"Agreed, especially when they're like 'omg I didn't know you could talk!' It's not like I tell them 'wow you are so loud maybe if you shut up for one second I might say something.'"
"Going outside and seeing other people who are also outside."
"WHO ARE ALL THESE F*CKING PEOPLE?!?!?!"
"When you go out in public and the public be there."
It seems like people are the problem in every scenario here.
Reading these can really make your heart rate go up. Hopefully the people who do some of these things will take a hint and be a little less irritating to the rest of us.
As long as we're not acting on that anger, no harm done.

Why are you mad? It's unhealthy. Do we even comprehend why we're miffed half the time? I don't, I've lost track. Although, I do get angry at the drop of a hat. So each origin can be arduous to track.
There really is no exact explanation as to why tempers can be set off. Of course, we are in sensitive times and emotions are are always at an edge, so that doesn't help.
But we really need to do some serious examining into what sets us off so easily. Anger is not an emotion that is sustainable or often has to do with logic. But let's try to find some...
Redditor u/KingOfJuiceBoxes wanted to discuss the times we've all been surprised by anger of others by asking:
What is the stupidest reason someone got mad at you?
I am at my wit's end with people who are overly polite while driving. I know on paper that sounds like a good thing but when you are polite, you tend to buck the rules. The rules I'm trusting you to follow. So when you buck the rules, even for kindness, I can't be secure as a driver. Now I'm mad.
to be richSeriously GIF by Debby RyanGiphy
"My "friend" stole a book. I asked him why he stole it when he's rich. He got really offended about the word "rich" and said I need to use the word "wealthy," because "rich" implies he didn't earn what he has. He never earned crap, especially that book."
"My ex got mad (yelling, followed by a weekend's worth of sulking silent treatment) during a road trip because I didn't know where the movie theater was or how to get there in the city we stopped in for the night. A city in which I had never been. This was years ago, before smartphones & GPS existed."
The Great Divide
"For trying to use a divider to divide his groceries from the person behind him. He told me it "offended" him and he tried to wrestle the divider away from me. He even had the audacity to tell everyone I was the crazy one."
"Jealousy is a hell of a drug, mine is "because I changed into a jumpsuit and flats at a wedding after party for my SIL, that I attended with my fiancé, her brother." CLEARLY I was actually hitting on this rando's bf in front of all my future in laws because… I… am disabled and can't stand in heels for more than an hour and wanted to be comfortable - so I guess I should have put a poncho on that says I'm Gross!!"
"To avoid confusing your man, my bad. She legit came up to my chin ready to go "I'm from Boston I'll freaking take you" I guess I'm happy her bf and another groomsman carried her away because my MIL would have slit my throat for fighting at the big money wedding. I for sure could have taken her butt lol "I'm from Boston" I'm from Canada and have thrown shovels of snow heavier than you when I was 12."

"Because I thanked their boyfriend for opening the door for me... Like, what?"
Humans are a mess. We can't have nice things. I think it's because trust has clearly become a mirage. But so many other issues are the problem. And when we can't trust that always leads to anger.
Ignoredron swanson spinning GIFGiphy
"I wasn't at my house, I told the guy I wasn't going to be there and he just ignored me and still went to my house."
"My roommates girlfriend was talking about how she needed an oil change for her car. I offered to do it for her and was explaining what all I needed to do it. My roommate got pissed and stormed off throwing a tantrum. They got into an argument because he's thinking me changing her oil is my way of trying to have sex with her. So now it's become an inside joke with me, my girlfriend, and my other roommates."
"I used to work in a store that sold food and this guy and his girlfriend came in, and he was asking me about some of the food. Normal sales conversation stuff. The girlfriend kept inserting herself between us and trying to turn him away from looking directly at me. I gave up on trying to do my actual and literal job and just walked away and she smirked at me the whole time."
"I was also cashiering up front when they got ready to check out, and the girlfriend let someone else go in front of her so they wouldn't be at my register. Ma'am if you're that insecure then that's not everyone else's problem to deal with, therapy is easily available these days."
People Break Down The Creepiest Research Holes They've Ever Fallen Down | George Takei’s Oh Myyy
"I used to work in a toy store when I was a teenager and there was this crazy lady who would come in once a week to yell at me because we didn't have any Chucky dolls. From the stupid movie where he comes to life and is evil. At the time, no one had them, because no one made them. Something I informed her of every week. I know they make them now so I hope she's happy."
Check Please!Michael Buble Check GIF by bublyGiphy
"This happened recently, actually. I work at a restaurant, and we're kind of short-staffed right now, so one of my managers, without my permission, decided to sign me up for some extra shifts on a volunteer sign-up form. When I reported this to my head manager, the other manager got mad at me and called me selfish, which is ironic, considering he's the laziest fool I've ever laid eyes on."
I am the boss!!
"I gave them a report EXACTLY as they explained, twice, this was apparently wrong - despite them telling me to modify it this way, so I did so to the T. I then got called up for insubordination. Same person, couple months after asked for the 4th time on how to do a task - I showed them and asked them to take notes because and I quote "this is the 4th time I've showed you this process, would you mind taking notes?"
"Got wrote up again because "I am the boss, it is not for you to tell me what to do." I leave in 1.5 months, I'm the only person who knows how to do my job, he doesn't have a replacement and I've got 10 years of knowledge in me noggin - guess you should have started taking notes on how to do my job."
Gimme them rolls...
"Had a roommate text me furious that I had eaten her pizza rolls without asking because she was going to have them for dinner. I made all my own food, I didn't eat her pizza rolls... my best guess she got home drunk one night, like she did a lot, ate them and didn't remember."
"Working in retail and some lady was having some problem with the self-checkout machines. She showed me her card and told me there's something wrong with the machine since she's had no problems at other stores. I look at her card and it's expired not by a day or maybe a few days, 2 freaking years. The card expired in 2019."
"I told her that her card was expired and that she needs to use a different card, she looks me dead in the eye and tells me not only am I an idiot but that she'll have me fired for being incompetent. She walks away I go help someone else and 10 minutes later she comes up to me and tells me to go screw myself as she walks away with what I assume to be her husband."
"I'm not sure how she paid for her stuff and there's no way in hell her expired card would work so I can only assume she's been using her husband's card or some other card that's not expired but still somehow found me to be the one at fault. If anyone ever wondered why this world is screwed it's because of people like that are allowed to drive, make decisions, and vote."

"Thought I'd broken one of my grandpa's wooden birds and proceeded to scream at me and slam my foot in a door. The bird had been broken by my grandma who'd been dead for more than a decade at that point."
"I heard an ambulance approaching when my light turned green. I didn't cross so as to leave the crossing empty for the ambulance. The van behind me started honking. After the ambulance had passed and we were driving, this van passed me. From the corner of my eye I saw the driver and he was making these 'I'm sorry' kind of gestures. That was nice. Reminded me of the fact that we all make mistakes sometimes. I responded with 'sh*t happens' gestures."
"My husband yelled at me in the middle of the night because he thought I was shaking the house somehow. We were having an earthquake. Had a good laugh about that the next morning."
"Both my family and my in laws are mad at me because I don't regularly spank my kids. I've gotten into several argument over it. My Aunt who co-raised me won't speak to me until I let her spank my kids when she babysits. It's a hill I never thought people would die on."
PAUSE!sky motion graphics GIF by ibeefaloneGiphy
"Someone got mad at me for stopping my car because children were crossing."
"My mom yelled at me and told me i was ungrateful, that i never did anything for her and that she always did everything for me and i never even thanked her for it. I just couldn't find the mayo in the fridge, lol."
"Omg mood. 2 weeks ago I went into my uncle's and aunt's house while they were at the hospital with their newborn baby. He knows I know the door code."
"I left pre-portioned lasagna in the freezer, fresh banana muffins on the counter, and put up a streamer and left a card. According to my mother I'm an idiot, overall stupid, she wishes I would move out, and I violated his privacy. Well, they loved the surprise, loved the muffins, no complaints. Gotta love moms."
Anger in hospitality is a given. So I'll let that one slide, but seriously people... we need to do better. Except when it comes to Chucky. Anger towards Chucky is good. But let's try to be calmer in general.

What is minor to some is major to many. And that's ok. We all process feelings differently. One's last straw is one's last straw! The smallest things can often be the spark that ignites the powder keg. That is why we all need therapy and meds. The "small" things add up. And when emotion is unchecked.... the small can lead to a HUGE explosion!

So I'm a terribly shy and quiet person even with friends and family. I get a lot of comments on "how I should talk more" or "why don't you talk more" or "all you say is yeah" so it really offends me when I actually do talk and either no one listens to me or they cut me off and talk over me. It hurts and actually makes me want to speak less. uninvitedwhitechick

No veggies Jesus!
When I was like 5-10 years old I wouldn't eat any veggies. My family always talk about how picky I was and now that I can eat most any veggies (not lettuce or onion they still suck) we will be out and when I eat something i normally don't they act like it's the second coming of Christ, its pretty humiliating to have your family in shock because you ate a carrot.

My neighbor's dog barking. Then I go backpacking. I walk many miles to a secluded area to relax and still. Dog. Barking. Someone brought their dog, and it will not stop barking.
I go on vacation far away from home and somehow the same barking.
There is no escape. There is only barking.
Trying to do school work? Might as well relate it to the constant barking in my ears.
Important phone conference? You guessed it: dog barking.

Once, at a Starbucks, this man inexplicably had nothing but ice in a cup. No water. He'd violently stir the ice then spoon out an ice cube and open mouth crunch. He just sat and finished his cup of ice like it were a bowl of cereal. When he was done he just walked out.

Pet peeves are there to remind us that we truly, are, human.
Why is it that someone tapping us on the shoulder rather than simply saying "excuse me?" sends us flying off the handle in such a way that we just want to strike them?
Here were some of those answers.

People who don't rinse toothpaste out the sink after they spit.

My brother does that how hard is it to turn on the sink
My boyfriend has a mat outside his shower that he always manages to soak after showering and I always step on it and complain that I got my socks wet or some times I'll be in the bathroom with him just talking and mid-sentence he will shove me onto the stupid gross wet mat!!

People who chew with their mouth open. My grandfather did this and he ate a butter, cream cheese, and mayo bagel. He had his mouth open. I threw up on the ground.
Different Kindness Avenues
People ignoring four-way stop procedure and trying to wave you through when they clearly should go first. Like thanks for trying to be kind but I'm confused and you're holding up traffic, go give a balloon to a child instead.
Why I'm An Introvert
I hate when I arrive at a party and I have to go over to everyone I know to say hi, I'd rather it all happen organically. I walked into a party once, grabbed a drink and sat down with a couple people and like 4 people walked over like "EY! You don't come over to say hi to me you dirtbag?!" I told them that I was doing a reverse Irish exit, an Irish entrance. They told me that the Irish entrance isn't a thing and that I was an ahole.

A Limey Ahead
As somebody from the UK, I get incredibly annoyed with other British tourists who cannot control their drink and make a fool of themselves abroad, especially in European countries such as Spain for example. Places like Benidorm and Magaluf come to mind, just party resorts to go and get pissed, almost like a mini Blackpool. I'm all for partying and have a good time don't get me wrong, but a lot of my fellow countrymen have no respect for the locals by drinking ridiculous amounts, and on top of that make no effort to learn about the country's customs, culture or language.
No wonder there was a meme going round a few years ago of how Americans see the British, and how Europeans see the British. Generally we all tend to be lumped in as white trash. Its always a few Brits that tend to ruin our image abroad, we're not all drunken lager louts that cause mayhem. A lot of British tourists generally want to try out different cultures and cuisines, rather than get pissed in clubs every night and have the bare minimum interaction with the locals.
Let It Forever Be "Have"
People who write "ect" instead of "etc".
People who write "alot" instead of "a lot".
People who write "could care less" instead of "couldn't care less".
People who write "could of" instead of "could have".
People who write "England" when they mean "the UK".
People who talk on the phone while checking out.
Casino cashier here. I've had people literally CALL SOMEONE while in my window. Like, gtf off the phone, tell me how you want your change so you can stop holding up the line!
I worked in foodservice for about four years, starting when I was 15. I get upset when people don't phrase their order as a polite sentence, like grumbling "hamburger and fries" instead of asking "Can I get a hamburger and fries, please?" That, and also orders that start with "gimme." I just think it's important to talk to servers like people! :) (Also in the U.S. you've gotta leave a respectful tip)
Words hurt. That is a basic truth that so many people tend to overlook. What you say to someone may be the last thing they ever hear. Think about that. Think before you speak. It so easy to cause someone unnecessary pain. And it so far easier to just be kind. Pain and words are intertwined. That is why bad news delivery is so rough. You never forget it.

My grandma said this to me. It wasn't meant to be malicious or purposely said to hurt my feelings, but it did kind of break me.

When I was a teenager I had problems with acne, which my father would yell at me for. One time when I was washing my face, outside the bathroom door I heard him angrily whisper to my mother, "She looks like crap, [mom's name]. This is why she'll never get a boyfriend. No guy wants to be with a girl who's ugly and disgusting."
It's nowhere near the worst thing my father's ever said to/about me, but for some reason that one destroyed me. crapenvelope
There's a crowd for anything.
"You're not funny. Stop trying"
As I mentioned in one of the comments, I used to get this a lot in high school. I was and still am starving for validation. One of those who took upon themselves to hit me on the head with truth, was the class joker. After he read a short story I wrote, he changed his mind and we continued to collaborate by writing and preforming sketches together.
Fast forward to 2020, I'm taking improv and writing classes at the Second City. Tonight I preformed on stage for the first time since high school, got amazing feedback, and solid laughs.
Don't let them bring you down. Yes, stay realistic, but find your own way to bring your passion to life. There's a crowd for anything. Tonight was amazing. You'll get there too. I'm not joking. BnaiRephaim
My father was a gay man, but he "tried to be straight". He ended up marrying my mother. It of course ended in divorce, but not on bad terms.
My mom has never dated or had a boyfriend since then (25 years), and to my knowledge no one has ever approached her in a romantic way, before or after my dad.
A few years before he died, my dad admitted to me that he always had love for my mom, but he was never IN love with her.
While I am glad that my dad finally came out of the closet and lived his life as his true self, it broke my heart to hear he never romantically loved my mom.
My mother is the sweetest, kindest, most humble soul on Earth and it makes me so sad that no one has ever been in love with her. She deserves a much happier life than the one she's lived. bismuth-crystals
I don't want to hate her....
When my friend died from suicide, i emailed her dad.
I was not an incredibly close friend of her's. We did not hang out, text frequently, etc. she was simply a classmate i was very close with during school.
i keep in contact with her father because i think he needs to know that there were people out there who care. my heart broke once when he told me she talked about me after every production at my school, although i stand in the background of all of them. my heart broke again when he told me he wanted me to tell him when they happen again so he can come see them, with her again. itsmesierra

You can't park here.....
I am the least favorite child in my family. My older sibling is very successful and serves in the medical industry. My father has always been distant to me all my life. One day when I had a problem with my car I called my father to see if he could help (he worked as a mechanic) He told me to drive to his apartment and park in his designated spot so he could take a look at the engine. I arrived and the landlord came out after I parked.
She came up to me and said "You can't park here. This is for tenants only" I told her who my dad was and she replied "Oh, you must be (my older sibling's name)" I corrected her and she looked confused. She then said "Your father told me he only has one child." bardsofcanada
