People Explain Which Things Make Them Instantly Angry

Just because a person is affable and approaches life with an abundance of joy and enthusiasm doesn't mean there's not a hint of darkness there somewhere.


It's called being human.

No matter how positive one is perceived in public, everyone has their snapping point–which, for the record, is not an excuse for slapping someone for all to see.

Everyone has a different tolerance level, but we all have the capacity to reach a boiling point.

Curious to hear what those might be, Redditor harmonybyday asked:

"What immediately makes you angry?"

Life circumstances can test our patience or push us over the brink.

Rude Awakening

"Waking up before your alarm thinking you still have a couple of hours to sleep. Then you check your phone and realize you only have a few minutes."

– Actuaryba

Laundry Drama

"wet socks."

– yParticle

Poor Customer Service

"Calling a gigantic corporation knowing full well I will speak to a robot for the first 5 minutes, on hold for the next 30, to explain my situation to 3 different people, of which none will help me."

– xailar

There's nothing more infuriating than the actions of other people.

Taking Too Much Space

"Some folks seem to have an utter lack of situational awareness, and as a result are constantly getting in the way of themselves and others."

– yParticle

They Think They Know What's Best

"Someone assuming my opinion or intentions before asking me directly."

– sevencoves

Jumping To Conclusions

"People who assume without getting all sides of the story."

"Example: believing that person who told you about someone else, without getting that someone else's side. Get all the facts, please."

"Another is reading a headline and making comments without reading the article."

– JAInTexas

False Accusation

"Nothing gets me angrier than being accused of something I haven’t done."

"When I was an early teenager, I would wrap my used sanitary products in tissue and put it in the bin next to the toilet."

"One day I get called downstairs - the toilet was blocked, because someone had flushed sanitary pads."

"Being the only menstruating person in the house, I was blamed. My Mum said in a condescending tone 'you know you’re not supposed to flush them!?' I explained what I do with them, that I put them in the bin".

"The argument got heated and eventually they just said 'don’t do it again' and dismissed me."

"Later, I was walking past the bathroom and I saw my Nan taking the tissue from the bin and putting it in the toilet."

"I flipped the f'k out! How long had she been doing this??"

"The worst part is that I’ve always tried to be honest so that sh*t like this doesn’t happen. Not saying I never lied, but I was never stupid enough to deny anything if I’d been caught. There was no reason for them not to believe me, because if it was me, I’d have said 'yes, sorry, I won’t do it again.'"

– Susim-the-Housecat

Incompetence Levels

"People who are incompetent but don't know that they are incompetent, and they try to fix things that do not need fixing."

"Incompetent and lazy, ok. Competent and lazy, ok. Competent and hardworking, ok. Incompetent and hardworking, please get out!!"

– spiffyga

Road rage is real.

Lane-Change Deniers

"People who drive slow in the right lane but speed up as soon as you try to pass them in the left lane."

– el_monstruo

Going Nowhere Fast

"People who cut ahead of you on the road only to go slow."

"If you're in such a hurry to risk my life and yours then push your foot down on the pedal a bit more."

– YouCanMakeNewAccts

Drivers Who Do This Suck

"People not using turn signals properly."

– atlienk

As for myself, I have little patience for those who disrespect the elderly.

What pushes me further is when I imagine my own parents or elderly friends I've lost who are the ones being harassed or taunted.

Anyone picking on the vulnerable is a coward, in my humble opinion.

Sometimes being naked isn't the sexiest look there is.

Certain articles of clothing were designed to accentuate all of our gifts.

The mystery a fantastic piece of clothing can create can also heighten the mood.

That's why lingerie is a billion-dollar industry.

Sexy cloth. Can lead to sexy time.

Redditor Great-Tiger6307 wanted to get into the sexy of it all when it comes to choices in fashion.They asked:

"What clothes worn are sexier than being naked?"

God is a big part of life.

It's become a contentious topic in life for many to discuss.

So people are so driven by faith.

And many others find it just a fun fantasy.

But what many of us believe is deeply personal.

And that should be respected.

Redditor Glittering _Leading74 wanted to talk about one of life's most controversial issues: God. They asked:

"Do you think God is real, and why?"

Most of the wild kingdom is far more ingenious and kind than us.

And when they do get "snippy," it's usually in reaction to humans.

They share food, build one another home, and will adopt lost creatures from another family.

We have a lot to learn from them.

Redditor pancakebunny15 wanted to discuss the best knowledge that can be shared about animal kingdom.They asked:

"What is a wholesome animal fact you know?"

People Share The Household Items That Would Be Extremely Useful In A Zombie Apocalypse

Okay hear me out, Zombie apocalypse films all get it wrong.

They focus on things like ammo, cool cars, and buff people trained in hand-to-hand combat (all of which are cool things) but fail to take into consideration that the true hero of the apocalypse is likely to be... secretly freaky suburban moms.
