24 Pics Just Barely Infuriating Enough To Make Anyone Twitch

Diply 23 Jan 2018

Lots of things make me mad. But I almost prefer that over the sort of irksome, but not-actually-worth-mentioning little annoyances that crop up everywhere.

I mean, if you complain about a street sign that's so poorly placed it's causing accidents, that's understandable. If you complain that the street sign's text is slightly off-center, you're just a dick.

1. Nothing like sharpening a fresh pencil to find the wood is in the way.

Reddit | Squeakypants69

This is the result of bad manufacturing. The graphite core is off-center, so the entire pencil will be like this. Ugh.

2. Okay, who installed the buttons on this elevator?

Reddit | Flupox

It's like the person was slowly falling sideways as they worked, causing each button to become more and more crooked as you go down the line.

3. When "oddly satisfying" becomes "mildly infuriating."

When you first see this container, you feel that satisfied tingle at the perfect alignment of the beads...and then you get to the bottom.

4. Clearly, these books were arranged by someone with no attention to detail.

Reddit | CatPrez

That, or another person borrowed the one volume and put it back wrong, which may be 1000x worse.

5. But there is a very special hell for the designer that used the wrong font on Volume 19.

Reddit | Reddit

Why?! Did they just forget with one they'd used for the previous 18 spines?

6. I'd probably eat the sideways gum first...

Reddit | EXPGamer303

Though I might leave it for last, just out of spite. Is that petty? Sure, but better to take my need for pettiness out on gum rather than a person.

7. If I wanted a plain donut, I would have ordered a plain donut!

Reddit | Reddit

Sure, you can smear the frosting back onto the top of the donut, but it just won't be the same.

8. When you're hangry, a defective seal isn't going to cut it.

That applesauce, pudding, or yogurt may be the only thing keeping you from lashing out in hunger! Quick, find a chocolate bar!

9. Also unacceptable: a pop tab that breaks off before the can is open.

Reddit | TrekkieEnderman

Now you're stuck tempting fate and your fingers on a hack to get to that sweet, sweet caffeine.

10. Are the compass points wrong, or did the installation of the plaque go wrong?

Reddit | Vikram_Tiwari

Either way, I think the Tiffany & Co. Foundation probably had a few choice words once they saw the result.

11. It's painful to think that there are probably thousands of these in the world. 

Reddit | Fearricepudding

If one lid got misaligned at the factory, many more must have. Does it still work? Yes, but it's the principle of the thing!

12. It's basic logic that the pen barrel should match the ink, right?

Reddit | Hyperion1221

So why is the red lightsaber a blue pen while the blue lightsaber is a black pen? Clearly, the Dark Side has won here.

13. There are two types of people in the world...

Reddit | val_the_impaler

Those who blatantly ignore the obvious spoon rest, and those who are silently fighting off the urge to strangle the ones who blatantly ignore the spoon rest.

14. With luck, a few flips of the trapdoor will dislodge your precious snack.

Reddit | parasity33

If not, you're stuck spending more money in an attempt to knock it down with another snack.

15. Wouldn't you be tempted to park there just to spite them for the formatting errors?

Reddit | MCBananacheese

Why is the "i" in "will" lowercase? And also, it's missing an apostrophe, so one could argue that it's unclear who has to pay for the towing.

16. This is the worst word search ever invented.

Reddit | Danieldefault

And yet, I totally just spent the last five minutes looking for some of the license plate numbers. I couldn't help it!

17. Once you see the extra tile, you can't unsee it.

Reddit | aironem

May as well just burn the whole building down and start all over again.

Or, you know, replace the one tile.

18. This solution to parking is so advanced that parking lots just can't keep up. 

Reddit | Xtratimesoccer

This guy is their best employee. He really thinks outside the box. He breaks boundaries. He colors outside the lines.

19. Proof that your office is populated by monkeys.

Reddit | Tastybread

Like, who did this to a perfectly innocent carton of half-and-half? Just because you haven't had your coffee yet doesn't mean you need to take it out on the carton.

20. This vending machine,'s totally trolling people.

Reddit | Jawaddles

Like, how does this even happen? How many quarters have been sacrificed to this monster? It hurts me just to look at it.

Load Comments

21. And this is why you should never put your trust in Spell Check.

Reddit | Reddit

Sometimes it'll just decide that a word isn't a word. Should we worry that a machine decided people aren't a thing?

22. I had a roommate that did this.

Reddit | tinyfoe

And when she did actually change it, she'd just leave the empty cardboard roll on the floor beside the toilet.

She's not my roommate anymore.

23. This apartment intercom grid starts out okay...

Reddit | mraza9

But falls apart in the second row. Like, what is happening here? There is no logic behind the layout of the apartment numbers.

24. Okay, I'll admit, I laughed at this one.

Reddit | theLorax287

However, it was a sad, twitchy laugh at how well it worked on me. I love it and yet hate it so very, very much.
