It’s often the little things that tip us over the edge. Back pain remedy ending up on the bottom shelf. Bananas being both overripe and underripe… Whether the universe has conspired against someone or they simply have to deal with other people’s stupidity, it only takes so much to ruin a perfectly fine day.
Disappointed and angry, people turn to the Internet. Here, they’re posting photos of the things that drive them crazy, hoping that someone will share their pain. And who are we to let them down? Bored Panda has put together a list of pics to prove just how annoying everyday situations can get, so continue scrolling and upvote your (least) favorite entries.
And if you’re into sadomasochism, check out our earlier list of mildly infuriating pictures as well.
That’s The Worst
Interestingly, science writers Joe Palca and Flora Lichtman have even published a book, trying to explain the reasons behind our frustrations. In Annoying, they say that it’s really difficult to find a universal formula for what is, well, annoying. Not every trouble is to terribly unpleasant, at least not when experienced one at a time. Rather, it is when they are repetitive and unpredictable that they get under our skin.
A random firework might take us by surprise, it can even frighten us, but it won’t instantly become annoying. Our neighbor’s loud music, however, played over and over and over again, is very annoying.
When You Spend 30 Mins Guessing Your Passwords And Decide To Reset It And This Happens
Paul Garrity, however, believes he may have found the evolutionary seeds of annoyance, in the reactions to one of nature’s most annoying creatures: the fly. The associate professor of biology at Brandeis University has devoted his time to studying the fruit fly. It has an ability similar to our own to sense potentially dangerous chemicals as well as pressure and temperature changes. That skill, to perceive possible dangers, may be the origin of the annoyance we feel today, he said.
When You’re Pouring Something And This Happens
Apparently, we can train ourselves not to get annoyed. Well, at least some of the time. Have you ever noticed how childfree people get more impatient with a crying or misbehaving kid than parents do? Michael R. Cunningham, a psychologist at the University of Louisville, told The Boston Globe that, “You can leave the environment, you can change the environment, or you can do something inside yourself to change your reaction.” That could mean changing behaviors, for example, doing deep breathing, counting to 10, or taking a walk every time you’re stressed out. It could also mean deliberately changing your thoughts about the situation – deciding, for instance, to view it as quirky instead of annoying.
