13+ People Share The Mild Inconveniences That Drive Them Absolutely Insane

Sydney Brooman 16 Jul 2019

We're only human, and sometimes, being human involves getting a sudden blast of unadulterated rage over the smallest, most minuscule inconveniences.

We know that these 'issues' are petty first world problems that aren't causing any actual harm, but we're going to complain about them anyway—and nothing can stop us.

The people of the internet recently took to Reddit to share which tiny inconveniences drive them absolutely up the wall, and I'll be legitimately shocked if you can get through this list without needing to breathe deeply and count down from ten.
