Being around people can be terrible, especially when the average person seems specifically designed to annoy you at any cost.

Whether they're chewing with their mouth open (STOP THAT) or intruding upon your personal space (Can you BACK UP, please?) there are so many different things that get on our last nerve.

You can thank Redditor Osilux, who asked the online community "What's something that annoys you but makes you look like an a-hole if you complain?"


"When there are open seats..."

When there are open seats in the rear of the bus but some folks insist on standing right in the aisle and not moving aside which blocks newer passengers from accessing the seats they may want to sit in.

"People walking so slowly..."

People walking so slowly, or people who let their dogs walk on the other side of the footpath to them so that the leash stretches all the way across the path and makes it hard for anyone to walk around them.

"When I am in no hurry..."

When I am in no hurry and someone holds the door, while I am still quite far away. I get anxious then I have to run.... sometimes I feel like running away from the door.

"People who don't read..."

Giphy

People who don't read their work emails fully and having to diplomatically phrase "READ THE FUCKING EMAIL" over and over again.

"Having a conversation..."

Having a conversation with someone and when it's my turn to speak they use it as an opportunity to check their phone and messages. And once it's their turn to talk I'm expected to give them my full attention.

"Close your gap!"

People who chew with their mouths open. Close your gap! I don't need to hear or to see what you make of it.

"When people say..."

When people say "God bless you" after every...single...sneeze... I can knock off 4 or 5 sneezes before I'm done.

"Those 'trips' people take..."

Those "trips" people take to 3rd world countries to build homes and schools and wells etc. And then post it on social media smiling with a bunch of kids. I can't put my finger on it but it's peeves me to no end. They're (usually) doing good things for people! I just hate it!

"When I'm walking behind someone..."

When I'm walking behind someone in a large crowd and they stop suddenly or turn around. Especially at the airport or somewhere like that, where you're really only supposed to be going from point A to point B. The crowd was flowing smoothly but now I have to maneuver around you to get where I need to go.

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
