What Is Not That Serious, but Can Still Ruin Your Day? Here’s What People Said.

As I get older, I’m trying to calm down a little bit more, but it sure can be tough sometimes. Hey, I’m working on it, okay…?

And from time to time I let really dumb things ruin my day.

And I think a lot of folks are like this, so I feel a little bit better about it… but still, even I can acknowledge it’s really foolish.

Let’s check out what AskReddit users had to say about the little things that can ruin their day.

1. About to get burned!

“Thinking the to-go lid on your coffee is properly secured when it is not.”

2. Day = Ruined.

“When you hit any part of your body on an inanimate object.

God, I just get so mad at the object/myself.”

3. The worst!

“Not finishing a good dream.”

4. Very noisy.

“For me, it’s that moment you drop a spoon or something, physics breaks, and it just bounces off every single surface on its way down making as much noise as a spoon like object could possibly make.

It just feels like it takes forever to finally stop moving.”

5. Gonna be a long day.

“When you’ve already left the house for the day and realise you are wearing undies that give you a wedgie.”

6. Not fun.

“Accidentally biting the inside of your cheek HARD when chewing your food.

For some reason when that happens to me it repeats itself about 3 times shortly after. It’s like a small electrical jolt that makes my jaw suddenly snap shut on that cheek even though I was trying so hard to avoid it.

So painful.”

7. Cravings.

“You ever been craving something and postpone it for a certain day, and then when it’s that day something happens and you don’t get to eat that?

Made a steak one night, I had half then put the other half away for the next day. I got home, after craving it and thinking about it all day, open then fridge and my roommate had eaten it.

It broke me.”

8. Now you’re mad.

“Having to get gas before work.

The worst part is that you knew you needed gas the night before, but thought, “I’ll just get it in the morning”, but overnight you forgot about it and then realize once you’re in the car again.”

9. Pure dread.

“”Hey, when you get in, let me know, we need to talk”

“We need to talk”

Those two, one variation for work and the other for personal, are the worst. There’s no context, no stated reason for needing to talk. Only dread.”

10. Rude.

“Being excited and extremely happy about something and then telling somebody, only to be met with either a disappointing reaction or even being told that what you’re excited about is “childish/silly/not interesting”.

Happened way too often to me so I don’t share many things with others anymore.”


“I know this isn’t true for all people, but I know I’m not the only one:

When someone takes my parking spot at work.

It’s not a big deal at all, but whenever it happens I feel like my day will suck.”

12. I second this!

“My dryer not drying my clothes all the way before work in the winter.”

13. Infuriating.

“Dropping something or getting your earbuds caught on something and yanked out of your ear.”
