Things That Make Someone Think, 'Man, I F*cking Hate People'
Humanity is a mess right now.
Thankfully I work from home, so it limits my exposure.
How did we get here?
Small slights or off-handed comments can send us over the edge.
But it is becoming increasingly difficult to give people a pass.
Redditor sneezycloud wanted to compare notes on the dregs of society and asked everyone:
"What is something that makes you say 'Man, I f***ing hate people?'"
Why do people cut others in line?
That's my big issue. So. Rude.

"When they did something obviously wrong and still openly denies it."
"When people slow down as soon as they cut in front onto your lane on the highway. Worst is when they do it with no blinkers."
"People do this on busy sidewalks too. Someone will completely cut you off and then immediately slow down when they look down at their phone. Passed the same person 4 times on the way to work yesterday because they kept speeding past me then look down and half their speed. Pretty sure he gave ME a dirty look each time too!"
'back in the day...'
"People who can't take 'no' for an answer and will push you to agree/accept what they say. People who can't accept criticism when they f**k up and affect other people's lives."
"People who can't have a discussion where they are being told a fact and they disprove it because 'back in the day...' or authority arguments should always win."
"It teaches you some hardcore patience when you have to deal with people like these on the daily."
"When people twist the truth and accuse you of things you didn't do and people side with them."
"Oh boy. I went through a divorce. I could prove every lie she told wasn’t true, and people still sided with my ex wife about the terrible things she accused me of."
"You just have to accept people will believe whatever they want or hear first and accept it as gospel."

"People who abuse their power and get away with it scot free."
Power is an issue. No matter who has it.

"People who litter. Especially when there is a bin literally a metre away."
"Porch pirates. People thinking 'Hey I know thats not mine but I want it so I'm taking it' makes my blood boil."
"We had that happen in our neighborhood ONCE."
"Now I'm surrounded by 3 very, very nosy neighbors. Any strangers in the cul de sac and three sets of blinds get split by suspicious figures. I could have the Hope Diamond delivered by Amazon to my doorstep and I wouldn't worry about it."
"They can't even know what it is most of the time. It's the epitome of scum."
"Adults who take youth sports way too seriously."
"This is one of the most important posts. They ruin sports for their children and other children as well. I hated the parents who would kiss a** to the coach and get their kid played."
"My parents didn’t have time to watch me play, so, I never did. Not saying I was good, but I don’t need a 40 yr old reminding me at every game when I’m finally out on the field. Call down Karen your 8th grader has play 30 full minutes and we are still losing. She isn’t getting a damn scholarship."
Clean. Up. Your. Mess.
"People who say 'Oh it's their job to clean up after me' or 'I'm making sure that they're still employed' as an excuse for not cleaning up after themselves in public."
"Like NO. You don't leave a soda spilled everywhere and then not even attempt to clean it up. You don't leave rolls and rolls of toilet paper all over the floor in the bathroom."
"You don't leave bags of popcorn and drinks and popcorn all over a theater floor and seats. Take responsibility."
"Clean. Up. Your. Mess."

"When a coworker decides to 'correct' me by sending a passive aggressive email and copying the boss and the whole group instead of just saying something to me privately and in person."
Yeah... sometimes people just suck.

Medical Professionals Share The Stupidest Thing They've Seen People Do Because Of Coronavirus
For the media, a global pandemic is worth its weight in gold.
That constant coverage across television and the interwebs, for all the information it provides, does tend to stoke hysteria in the wrong hands. And in public health crises like these, pharmacists and other medical professionals catch the brunt.
Turn on the television at any point today and you'll witness the manic adrenaline of news outlets exploring the ins and outs of a novel, unsolved public health issue on the rise.
That media coverage does not occur in a vacuum. Quite the opposite, in fact.
Drug stores have been cleaned out of water, toilet paper, and surgical masks for weeks. Pharmacists are going postal answering the same questions every six minutes.
At times, it seems unfair that a panic-inducing pandemic virus comes during this particularly chaotic contemporary era. Or perhaps the logic ought to be flipped. Maybe these last few years of global tumult have primed everyone to over-respond to a crisis like this one.
Maybe everyone was simply too high-strung to deal with the coronavirus with any composure at all.
SasDestroyer394 asked, "Pharmacists of Reddit, what's the most stupid things you've seen people do because of Coronavirus?"
Little Extra Padding
"Buying newborn size disposable diapers to use as masks." NyxPetalSpike
"Makes sense, considering how many sh*t-faces I've been seeing wearing face masks." spaghatta111
The Great Bum Hip Epidemic
"A lady told me that she was told by her manager to self-quarantine for two weeks because her mother was in hospital.
"But, her mother was in hospital recovering from a planned, elective hip replacement.
"This lady was delighted to spend time with her mum in hospital (as it's a work-directive they pay her without needing to dip into leave or sick pay) but horrified at the unnecessary fear that people are spouting."
When They’re Out of Gloves...
"Using condoms to touch door handles and elevator buttons." K3V3L
"Sanitary gloves are sold out in many areas. Condoms are an...interesting alternative." a-breakfast-food
"Instructions unclear. Penis stuck behind door handle." Spidron
Desperate Times Call for LOTS OF DRUGS
"The main thing is people wanting multiple (illegal) repeats of their meds 'in case they need to stockpile them.' The number of people getting visibly upset that we won't do this for them is saddening."
For That Thick Cloud of Virus Off the Saw
"I wish people would stop buying all the f*cking dust masks. They will do NOTHING to stop any virus. They stop particles. You're wasting money and endangering my health."
“I Need That Double Vaccine Juice-Up, Baby”
"One of my friends works in a pharmacy and for a major national chain. This past week alone she said she has seen people...
"Ask when they can schedule another flu shot to 'dose up to prepare.'
"Complain to her about them not wearing masks at the pharmacy, to which she replies that masks are actually primarily for infected people, and they lose their sh*t in response."
TP in Crisis
"Here in Australia two people were fighting over toilet paper, so the police had to get involved and tasered them." thelostandthefound
"The whole toilet paper thing, I went grocery shopping the other day and I'm in a town that isn't threatened by Coronavirus, barely any toilet paper left on the shelves. I truly don't understand it because what the f*ck is toilet paper gonna do about the Coronavirus?" SpleensTheFeline
"Smash a corona bottle while shouting 'I DON'T WANT YOUR VIRUS.'" SpectremREDDIT
"I'd image Corona the beer is taking a huge hit in sales because of Corona the virus." Durian_Mace
"Their sales have actually increased by a lot! There's been a lot of theme parties where the theme is "corona" and obviously there's only corona beer there." Luukipuuk1912
What’s the Government For
"Pharmacist at a Canadian hospital here.
"We're being threatened with 'I'm not paying, my drug plan needs to pay! (Even though I'm 63 days early out of 90 days) I'm going to contact my Member of Parliament, you'll be hearing from them!'"
Casting a Wide, Racist Net
"I feel like the most irritating interactions that I've had with patients is when they just start being racist against Asians and say that we shouldn't serve them to stop the spread of the disease. I'm not even Asian, I'm white and this irritates the crap out of me. I don't have any patience for the patients.
"In general, the Corona virus is being blown completely out of proportion by the media. Hell, the general flu has more spread and more deadly."
Little Crisis Concoction
"What's weird is we are out of isopropyl alcohol and aloe gel, because people are trying to DIY their own hand sanitizer. I had a woman come ask me if she could substitute witch hazel for alcohol since we were out. Gonna say that's probably a no."
"I work in pharmacy and we've had people INSIST and argue with us about purchasing the giant communal hand sanitizer we have behind the dispensary for the staff...I wonder how people can be that stupid."
"I'm not pharmacist, but I work on a dairy farm (hang on, hang on, it's related)."
"We vaccinate our calves against bovine coronavirus (BCoV) at birth with a vaccine containing the killed virus (marketed as Calf-Guard or Scour-Guard 4KC)."
"As I was vaccinating our newest little bull calf, I had the thought, 'I wonder if someone, somewhere, had the novel idea to dose themselves with veterinary vaccines yet to try and prevent the coronavirus. People can't be THAT stupid, right?'"
"It turns out they have, and they are."
Not Seeing the Connection Here
"I work in a goddamn hardware store and I had a couple come in asking for mothballs (campher). So that they could put thread through them and turn them into a necklace and wear them around their neck."
Who Needs Lungs When You Got a Butthole
"I was in Walgreens two days ago and the toilet paper and water were nearly gone, but there was an endless supply of Robitussin and other cough suppressants. I don't think people's priorities are in the right place."
A BAD Habit Right Now
"My pharmacist licked her finger before picking up my script yesterday. That seemed pretty silly." -- Brummiediv
"I had a substitute teacher like 3 days ago do that and it drove me insane. STOP DOING THAT KAREN!" -- knnyh
That is Nothing But Poisonous
"Patient asked if he can gargle with bleach because he heard it from the internet that it would help fighting the corona virus. What in the world?"
Layers of Defense
"I'm not a pharmacist but a friend of mine had an onion in his bedroom because his parents saw on the internet that it kills the virus... I mean, if it's on the internet it's true right?"
Ya Gotta Do What Ya Gotta Do
"I did see my friend cover himself in cut out pieces of card, latex, rubber and taped it to his body and cut out two eye wholes into a bucket and began wear it while putting a mask over that bucket for 'extra protection' and saying 'These are extreme hygiene methods.' It all fell apart as he walked out his room."
People Share Their 'I F***ing Hate People' Experiences
With over 7 billion people in this world, there are sure to be a few that display a head-turning lack of conscientious thinking.
It's hard to say where such pure, undying self-absorbed conduct stems from. But it sucks.
In the absence of a public, battle royale-style confrontation with the rude perpetrator, Reddit has provided a far less violent outlet for the ear-steaming anger these dinguses provoke.

Fecal Booby Traps
I live in a big apartment complex and honestly the people who don't clean up after their dogs.
Seems like there are little doggy landmines every square inch of green space.
No Pooping in the Lake
I live near one of the most beautiful lakes in the world, and so every summer we get tons of people shi**ing, pissing, puking and throwing trash in it then moaning that they got swimmers itch.
We charge a high price for the stuff to get rid of it at my store because it's their own damn fault. Every year after they leave we spend a combined hundreds of hours cleaning up after them to keep that lake beautiful.
Didn’t Plan to Hear “Third Eye Blind” This Morning
Listening to music on your phone without headphones or having a speakerphone conversation in public. Your phone comes with earbuds, stop forcing us to listen to your trash.
Worse Than the Shoe Tyers
Cell phone a**holes. Stop in public doorways / middle of sidewalks / walk directly at you without looking cause they're on their phones.
We’ve All Been There
Double Paper in Plastic, Please
I work in retail. Enough said.
Labor is not Servitude
People that eat out then leave a big mess with the attitude "the workers will do it, that's what they get paid to do."
Pride-Stricken Motor Snobs
People who speed up when you signal a lane change. F*ck those self important bastards.
People who use obscure acronyms as if you're supposed to know what it means.
Open and Shut
When I hear about an abused child or animal.
