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.

Y'all know that one Hannah Montana song? “Everybody makes mistakes! Everybody has those days!" That's the song I sing to myself every time I accidentally burn myself while making ramen. It comforts me to know, however, that there are a lot of worse mistakes out there than some spilled ramen. Who knew?

When I was younger, it seemed every adult believed that you couldn't swim for several hours after eating. Why did they all believe this? I fought them on this all the time, by the way. I shouldn't have had to, just because I'd eaten some barbecue during a pool party. Guess what, though? That belief is unfounded.

As much as we're not supposed to feel satisfaction upon observing the struggles of other people, it can be hard to resist a silent, internal fist pump when some blunder occurs immediately after we tried to help the person prevent it.

One of the most upsetting aspects of the Covid-19 pandemic––which is saying a lot, frankly––is the number of people who have been so affected by misinformation and disinformation. You know the ones to which I refer: These are the people who are convinced the virus is a hoax despite the lives it's claimed and the devastation it has wrought on society at large. Disinformation kills––there are stories of people who remained convinced that Covid-19 is a hoax even while intubated in the ICU, even up to their last breath.

After Redditor asked the online community, "Doctors of Reddit, what happened when you diagnosed a Covid-19 denier with Covid-19?" doctors and other medical professionals shared these rather unsettling stories.
