Sure, it’s natural for people to get annoyed sometimes, even angry. Hell — I know some full grown adults who still throw temper tantrums on the reg! But for us normal folks, we usually keep it pretty chill. That is, of course, until these little everyday things start eating away at us. I mean, if I take off most of the white when peeling a hardboiled egg, I’m going to f*cking LOSE it. Just trying to get that lean protein, nah mean?

There are some things in life that grate on everyone’s nerves. Maybe it was the Prius ahead of you in traffic that cut you off in the roundabout — without using their turn signal, of course. Or maybe it’s your parent who keeps accusing you of things you definitely didn’t do. Or maybe, it’s the sound of people smacking and chewing their food like barnyard animals that really makes you want to pull your (or let’s be honest — their) hair out.

I know we’re supposed to take deep breaths and do yoga and meditate in order to free ourselves of all the rage and turmoil that lives deep within our scarred souls, but sometimes, tree pose just ain’t going to cut it. Sometimes you need to let the rage fill you to the brim of infuriated ecstasy.

These are 29 of the most rage-inducing things that can make you lose your temper immediately:

Mad props if you can make it through this entire list without getting at least a little annoyed.


The fatal combination of stupid AND rude. I work in customer service. Its okay to be dumb. I can help you. You can be rude too, you self-entitled little twit. I don’t take it personally. But lord help me when someone is both stupid and rude. I lose my shit.


When someone blames me for something I clearly did not do.


Someone claiming lack of responsibility for something that is very clearly their fault.


When people start saying their problems are worse than yours and that yours don’t matter as a result. Everyone has problems, they don’t cancel out, asshole.


The moron that stops in a roundabout.
