We’ve all encountered it: that annoying feeling of annoyance and frustration caused by the small things in life.
Whether it’s the sound of someone loudly crunching their chips, the constant dinging of notifications, or the never-ending task list at work, these mildly infuriating things can quickly add up and cause stress.
No one knows this more than the folks in the popular subreddit “Mildly Infuriating.” Here are some of the most infuriating things that have happened to people.
1. ONE DISH and ONE GLASS per meal!
2. All dishes and glasses must be cleaned by hand.
3. No dishwasher use during neighborhood quiet hours! The neighborhood quiet hours are 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. to 9:30 a.m..
4. Please do not bend our spoons.
5. For any advanced cutlery, serving tray needs, or for any minor appliance fixes or instructions, please contact [redacted].
6. Tap water is okay (Drink at your own risk.)
7. DO NOT keep any food in the refrigerator for more than 16 hours.
“Did you know that paying for parking somewhere is cheaper than fixing four flat tires? Think about this next time you decide to dock your car [in] front of someone else’s building for a week.”
The letter reads, “Hello. I am not sure why you would feel it is appropriate to have a 15+ person Friendsgiving in these apartments with the wall being as thin as they are. I am an attorney. I work early and late from home. I will not tolerate you having essentially a PARTY next door. I will not tolerate the noise. I have already informed police of your intention. If I hear you, I will call. We must all respect one another. Thanks.”
The mildly infuriating letter reads, “Who am I…just some[one] who hopes [this] brightens your day by reminding you of how beautiful you are. Who am I…I am the one who wonders if I would ever be so lucky….Who am I…I am the one that daydreams about you a little more than I should. Who am I…probably a little more broken than others…Who am I…I am probably someone who doesn’t deserve your precious time…Who am I…I am the one that would disappoint you if you knew who I was…”
The mildly infuriating letter reads, “Dear neighbor, I drove by your house today, and then by your neighbors — The Wilsons. I saw that poor old man, who I believe is 85 years old, working most of the day cleaning up leaves. He has worked other days too cleaning up his leaves. I couldn’t help but notice that you are allowing the leaves from your yard to blow over on his yard. Shame on YOU!!!!”
The original form reads, “Dear neighbors, Have you been disrupted by the children taking over the apartment lawns, parking lots, and the screaming and yelling? Please sign this petition. We need to speak out to make the change!”
