As anyone who’s been on a family vacation can tell you, if you spend a lot of time with a person, they’re bound to end up annoying you. Accepting the good and bad in someone is a big part of relationships, especially when the “bad” just ends up being kind of hilarious.
Sometimes the weirdest things bother you for absolutely no reason. I’ve snapped on people for cracking their knuckles, singing in the car, and talking when I can
hear that they need to clear their throat. It’s irrational and ridiculous, but I can’t help it and neither can they.
Not too long ago, there was
a Reddit thread about just this thing. People in the happiest relationships still do things that make the other want to tear out their hair. From the outside, however, it’s the most entertaining thing in the world. Ahead, we rounded up the funniest and most relatable pet peeves from the thread. Warning: Some of them might just hit a little close to home.
“His absolutely awful Italian impersonations he obnoxiously does in public just to embarrass the hell out of me. I get so annoyed, turn bright red, sweat profusely, and yell at him to stop, but that just makes him yell ‘eyyyy linguini,’ etc louder.”
“She fills the dishwasher all wrong. It’s like she’s never played Tetris before.”
“She often does not use actual words for stuff. ‘Can you grab me one of the (long pause) thing things?’ It’s funny because her twin sister understands exactly what is being referred to no matter the context. I’m still learning.”
“Starts to say something to me while walking away. All I hear is ‘Hey, don’t forget to hakfnwnaldnwsmf.’ I’m looking around trying to decipher what the hell he just said to me and start making shit up. He’ll get mad when he has to repeat himself.”
“She can’t watch anything without stopping it and rewinding it over and over, either because she wasn’t paying attention or she wants to read some silly detail. It usually takes at least twice as long to watch anything.”
“She sets the alarm for an hour and a half before she needs to be up and just keeps hitting the snooze button. I might have to leave her over this (not really).”
“She can’t eat a meal without dropping at least one piece of food in her lap or on the floor. Those long reaches for food on the coffee table give me constant anxiety.”
“My S.O. overextends herself and volunteers for everything. Halloween decoration and science fair project coordinator at the school for the 1st grader? Sure! Cries at home the night of.”
“I don’t know about ‘worst trait’ but an annoying habit: He changes the words to popular songs, sings them constantly, and gets them stuck in my head. So then I just repeat the WRONG WORDS over and over in front of people.”
“She doesn’t rinse off her cereal bowls. If you rinse your cereal bowl right away, it cleans so easily… if you leave it, though, the cereal gets all hard and stuck to the plate. It turns a 5-second rinse job into a 2-3 minute rinse job.”
“When I ask her to repeat herself (because I didn’t hear what she said), she just repeats one word, making it even more difficult to understand.
S.O.: Did you hear the Queen was too sick to attend church at Christmas?
S.O.: The Queen…
S.O.: The Queen!
S.O.: At Christmas.
Me: What the hell are you talking about?
S.O.: Oh forget it…”
“She’s really good at figuring out movie plots, so she can spoil a movie without ever having seen it before.”
“She is a semi-compulsive hoarder. We recently bought a new kettle, and she refuses to throw away our old one. This would be semi innocent if we didn’t already have a backup kettle for our backup kettle. So we have three kettles. This is what it’s like with every purchase we make.”
“She takes her socks off in bed, but leaves them down by her feet under the covers. Once a week, I have to go down there and get them all out, or else they start to slide over to my side.”
“He’s got the text conversation flow skills of a golden retriever.
Me: hey honey did you sleep well?
Him: photo of his cat
Me: aw I miss that kitty. What are you up to?
Him: watching a documentary
Me: cool what’s is about?
Him: photo of a pan of eggs and shit
Me: cooking breakfast? Yum what is it?
“Whenever things go wrong, she always says, ‘Uh oh, Spaghetti O’s.’”
“Instead of throwing the stickers off fruit in the garbage, she sticks them to the counter right above the garbage can. Used to do it randomly, until she found out how much it annoys me. Now she does it deliberately.”
“She never finishes a can of soda or a beverage. There is always one third left in the bottom. I dunno why, but it annoys me so much.”
“He whistles, sings to the pets, and repeats weird catch phrases when he comes home at midnight. Wakes me up and drives me crazy.”
