15 People Share the Little Things That Immediately Make Them Lose Their Temper


Do you have a bit of a hair-trigger temper? Do little things send you over the edge?

If so, you’re not alone! These 15 people are your spirit animals…or your brothers and sisters in arms…or something.

In this AskReddit article, people reveal the small things that really make them blow their tops.

1. A little fired up

“Things not staying where I put them.

For example if I hang a towel and it just immediately decides to slide off, or I put my spoon down in my ice cream, but because it’s still almost full the spoon just tips over and falls out.

Like, you’re inanimate f**king objects, don’t just f**king up and decide to do some random a** bulls**t that makes me have to go and pick s**t up or clean the floor!”

2. Don’t talk to me

“Someone trying to talk to me while I eat at work. Come on, just let me have this 10 minutes to myself.”

3. Road rage

“Hitting back to back red lights.”

4. I’m with this person

“Grocery store etiquette. GTFO of the middle of the aisle! This can’t be your first time shopping!”

5. Almost ended it

“This morning, I got a bag of popcorn out of the vending machine at work.

Opened it too fast and shot popcorn all over the floor.

For a good 7 seconds, I thought about just going home and quitting my job from bed.”

6. Take a deep breath

“Bumping my head on something when I stand up.

It takes me by surprise and pisses me off.”

7. It’s a real thing

“When I bite into a delicious sandwich and all the insides fall out of the other end.

I call this Sandwich Rage.”

8. Big mistake

“If someone shushes me or puts their hand in my face. I go from 0 to 100 in no time.”

9. Put it away

“People using their brightest screens on their phones to check texts and social media during movies in a theater.”

10. Try me

“Talking over me.

I get that it’s a cultural thing for some people – in some families you never get heard at all unless you talk over your family members – but doing it in regular conversation is just enraging.

Also condescension. Call me “son” or “honey” one more time, a**hole.”

11. Gross

“Unflushed toilet.”

12. Move it!

“People taking up the sidewalk and walking too slow. Immediate rage.”

13. Torture

“Catching my earbud cord on a doorknob and having it ripped from my ear.”

14. Awful

“People who use speakerphone in public.

Also, the especially s**tty subgroup of people who blast music from their phone/Bluetooth speaker in public instead of using headphones. “Bruh, dis that s**t you ain’t never hurd before!” Yeah, and now I long to return to such an idyllic time.”

15. Please be on time

“People being late or unprepared.

If I say I want to leave the house at 5PM to go get groceries, I don’t mean get ready to leave at 5PM, I mean I want to be walking out the door.

Losing 15 minutes in the grand scheme of things isn’t a huge deal, but I just feel so disrespected if my time is wasted like that.”

Grrrrrr…. this post really made me angry.

How about you? Which one of these really grated on you?
