13 People Share What They Think Gets More Annoying the Older They Get

I have a confession to make: I’m turning into a grumpy old man.

I find myself being totally annoyed at just about everything when I’m out in public…and that’s not a good thing.

I don’t know, maybe I need to start meditating, or something…

In the meantime, I’m gonna take a look at what people said annoys them the older they get.

And so should you!

1. Please be quiet.

“People who just can’t shut the hell up. Especially on the bus or train.

I just want to go back to sleep.”

2. Sounds horrible.

“Working with the public.

People are becoming increasingly impatient, self entitled and rude.

I’m sorry you have to wait in line like everyone else and can’t just walk in, grab your thing and walk out because there are other people in the store.”

3. Now I get it.


I 100% understand the angry old guys that would yell at me, and my friends when we were running up and down the block yelling and being obnoxious.”

4. Don’t get hurt!

“The length of time it takes to recover from an injury.

Sprained ankle? 3 years…”

5. Move it!

“People who stop in the high traffic areas really get my blood pumping.

Following someone into a store, we walk in, they stop right at the door looking for their wallet, mask, phone etc.

It takes less than 3 seconds to step to the side so others can pass.”

6. Weird.

“My 15 year old brother and his TikTok obsession.

He recently made a TikTok, he ran up to me and pushed me in the pool. He then yelled “GET WET BOOMER”

I’m 29.”

7. I was wrong…

“Younger me.

She made some really dumb choices and disregarded things she should have paid attention to, like career advice, her health, life insurance, financial planning.

I never saw anyone around me, of any age, paying attention to these things, so I thought they were just fussy adult bulls**t. Turns out I was wrong.”

8. Getting old!


When overindulging, young me felt a bit off for 4-5 hours the next day, then I was ready to go again.

Old me requires 3-4 days before feeling good again.”

9. Here we go again…

“My family.

I’ve started to dread holidays and birthdays that I used to look forward to.”

10. So annoying.

“People who refuse to put in the most basic entry to work things out for themselves before asking for help.

If you genuinely need help, that’s fine, but if the first Google result would have sorted your s**t out, and you’re sitting at your computer, why the hell are you bothering me?”

11. Waste of time.

“Rude people.

As you get older, you realize how counterproductive it is.”

12. Laziness.

“How little effort and unprepared people are regardless of how much time they have to prepare for even in the most trivial of task.”

13. Gross.

“People who love drama.

They thrive off making bad situations seem worse and making other people upset. Stirring up s**t excites them, makes them feel interesting. The more tragic the drama the juicier to them.

I don’t have the patience for that annoying high school type of BS anymore.

Just watch one of the billion reality TV shows out there if you crave drama that badly, at least those people actually signed on to have their drama and tragedies made into entertainment.”

What annoys you the older you get?
