111 Super Annoying Things People Do

We’re big fans of human beings in general, but oh my Lord, sometimes they’re so annoying, we wish we could mind-control them into being better. Humanity needs an upgrade, a software patch: the first thing that should be phased out are those pesky little behaviors that irritate us. That frustrate us. That make us rant and rave on the internet and to our friends.

Bored Panda has compiled a detailed list of these annoying things that people do, big and small, all for your viewing (dis)pleasure. They’re likely to get your heart rate up, so remember to breathe and think calming thoughts throughout. Putting stickers on camera lenses, leaving restaurant tables messy, and refusing to queue properly are just a few of the maddening things lying at the tip of the iceberg. Though that last one might irk Brits more than anyone else.

As you’re scrolling down, remember to upvote the photos that you related to the most, dear Pandas. We’re also very curious about what other things annoy the ever-loving frick out of you, so be sure to write up a comment and post it at the bottom of this list. Ready to rage? Let’s go!

Executive coach Dr. Marcia Reynolds notes on Psychology Today that we should save our energy for serious fights instead of wasting it on everyone who annoys us even slightly. Minor conflicts aren’t worth getting stormy about, even if we might want to teach someone a well-earned lesson.

According to Dr. Reynolds if you “shift your attention elsewhere” and remove the energy from the fight, you might surprise the person who’s currently making your life a living hell. It’s a different path that’s available to us: instead of making the person go into their defensive mode and stick to their story, now they’re wondering what exactly is going on.

Body language, however, is just as important as our words. “Manage your non-verbal behavior. If you are going to stay out of the fight, don’t roll your eyes, mutter under your breath, or make an ugly face as you turn away. You are still sparking the fire with your gestures,” Dr. Reynolds explains.

“The best thing to do is take a big breath, let it out slowly, and focus on breathing comfortably. You are strong when you control your reactions. The disrespect the person is showing has nothing to do with you personally.”

#9 Some Jerk In My Office: “Damn, That Was Close. If I Took That Last Ice Cube I Might Have To Refill The Tray”

Dr. Reynolds also points out that our health is far more important than putting someone in their rightful place. Sure, you might rant a bit, but you’re likely to fail to convince someone to change their ways. And the one who suffers is you because now you’re full of anger and hate. Choose to react differently, even if your instincts say otherwise.

By the way, Pandas, if you’re in the mood for some more examples of annoying behavior that’ll make you wonder how any of us manage to get along at all, you ought to check out Bored Panda’s previous articles here, here, here, and here.
