Ask me what little thing pisses me off and... I wouldn't know where to begin.
Oh, Lord. What does that say about me? Yikes.
You see, there's no shortage of things out there that annoy the hell out of us.
There's a recent viral meme that I love because it proudly declares, "I hate going out in public because the people be there." It speaks to me.
But there's more out there to get on our nerves than just people.
Redditor DisastrousArticle30 asked the online community:
"What pisses you off instantly?"
"YouTube turning your whole recommendation page into a topic you've watched two videos of."
The algotithm is terrible and it's a big reason why I don't spend more time on YouTube.
"Horseflies will chase you..."
"Horseflies. Bees only sting you if you mess with them. Wasps sting you if you get too close. Horseflies will chase you to the next town over just to bite you."
I don't think I've ever come across a horsefly and I think I'd like to keep it that way.
"When it takes..."
"When it takes 15 seconds for a company to put a fraudulent or unwanted charge on my account but takes 5-10 business days to get it back."
Yes, the bureaucracy hates everything and everyone.
"Getting blamed for something you didn’t do."
Very frustrating. Getting some flashbacks to grade school...
"When you drop something..."
"When you drop something and it bumps into even more things on the way down."
Ah yes, few things annoy me more than having to clean up a mess I didn't intend to make.
"When I hit my head..."
"When I hit my head on something. There’s this pipe right around head level near my washing machine and utility sink (I’m not even tall…it’s an old house). I bump my head on it an embarrassing amount of times. I always want to smash something when I do."
Sounds like it's time to make padding that pipe your next home improvement project!
"I was ice fishing..."
"Seeing people leave trash out in nature.
I was ice fishing this winter and I saw these guys just dump their trash in the hole drilled in the ice. My blood was just boiling at the total disrespect given to nature."
If you have trash with you, you should carry it with you until you can dispose of it properly and safely.
End of discussion.
"Trying to open..."
"Trying to open “easy open” packaging to find out that sh*t is not, in fact, easy to open in any way, shape, or form."
Those little tabs at the corner of packets of cold meat that are supposed to peel the whole thing open but instead, just completely detach!
"People that stick..."
"People that stick gum underneath the underside of tables or litter literally anywhere."
People are nasty.
They sometimes make me want to move to a different planet.
"When in a conversation..."
"When in a conversation someone does a whole monologue but when they're done, won't let you get a single word in and will even walk away."
People like this have a tendency to suck all of the air of the room, to say nothing of the conversation.
If you'll excuse me, I'm going to go have a walk and calm down.
Care to join me?
Some of these hit a bit too close to home.
