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.

Fam. Weighted blankets.

If you (or your kids - I see you, exhausted parents) struggle to stay asleep at night, weighted blankets might be a game changer for you. We got one for our 1-year-old after a week of her waking up at 4AM for baby jam sessions.

Best $31.99 we have ever spent. Ever.

As kids, we spent about 8 hours every day in school for 10 months of each year. Not surprisingly, a few useless lessons made their way into the curriculum.

Well, maybe more than a few.

Kids say some seriously whacky stuff sometimes, it can be disturbing, especially when they tend to discuss people who are not there. When the imagination is heading into "The Sixth Sense" territory, it may be time for a visit to the therapist. Now almost all of us had imaginary friends at one point in life. It is a very normal, common part of childhood. But much like the real friends in corporeal form we make in life, sometimes certain relationships are toxic and not a good influence. And separation is called for.

Redditor u/xX_ENTROPY_Xx wanted to hear about people's children's besties that they haven't laid eyes on by asking..... What's the scariest story you heard a child tell about their "imaginary friend"?

Be careful what you wish for, you just may get it. That is one of the wisdoms of life that people are always throwing around. It can be especially true when meeting your idols, finding your dream job and searching down blood relatives you knew nothing about. The DNA discovery craze has been all the rage the past decade or so. Everyone is running around contacting family they never knew they had. That can be quite the Pandora's box of family secrets and scandal.The outcomes have been all over the place. Though one of the best led to the discovery of the Golden State killer so that's a win.

Redditor u/VideoFork wanted to know who would be willing to give up some salacious tea about their blood tie discoveries by asking..... People who have taken an ancestry DNA test and accidentally uncovered a family secret, what was it?
