Most Annoying Things in Life

Things that happen that can put a black cloud over your head.

The Top TenXW

1MosquitoesSpanish for "small fly," mosquitoes are flies that have been known to cause various diseases . A sample of diseases caused by mosquitoes: malaria, yellow fever, Chikungunya, West Nile virus, dengue fever, filariasis, Zika virus .

They're the ultimate source of frustration during Summer. They bite you, leave itchy bites, make that annoying buzz when flying, you can't get rid of them, they spread deadly diseases, kill livestock, lay lots of eggs, hatch within hours, and reproduce like they're going extinct.

I live in Georgia and these the** mosquitoes just HAVE to ruin my July cookout party. Quick get the repellent. Take that you west nile spreading bitches!

More than 130 bites when I went back to my beautiful country... Colombia... But it was because I was without a shirt most of the time... And I didn't used any repellent

People smoking when there's people around should be #1. Mosquitoes are pretty avoidable and can be repelled by bug spray. Cigarette smoke is very hard to avoid, and there are people doing it nearly everywhere in public.

2People who smoke around others

This is why someone invented a smoking area. If there is one USE IT! I don't want to choke over the scent of cigars while I'm eating my sandwich!

I hate that don't they realize second hand smoke causes lung cancer just as much as smoking does now nonsmokers will suffer and die because of smokers who can't smoke in a SMOKE area

I hate the cigarette smell it's disgusting and they always spit

They are so annoying and makes others lives at risk. And seriously, There are no smoking areas where I live. - GriffinDoge

3Justin BieberJustin Drew Bieber is a Canadian singer, song writer, and record producer. He was born on March 1, 1994. Justin is currently 22 years old and lives in Ontario, Canada (despite once claimed that he was Part-Indian) and he's Christian. He's the son of an author, Pattie Mallet. more.

I was looking and looking. I found it. The most annoying voice on the planet. It sounds like a terrified buffalo. I want to seriously get the chance to meet this... Thing, so I can tell it how much I hate its music and how it killed REAL music.

I have a daily ritual. I made a tombstone in memory of good music, and I dance to good music every day in front of it. And its all because of Justin Bieber

Ignore the stuff on the list that says bullies, mosquitos, etc. Justin Bieber is why the music industry sucks. If anyone would listen to Imagine Dragons's "Monster", The XX's "Tides", or old music like how 'bout "Tragedy" by Bee Gees I'd be so happy. Justin Bieber is like "I'm so cool" well guess what? You're an idiot who's desperate for girls. He should've gone to jail faster. It's like with Selena Gomez. I've hated her since the first episode of Wizards. She's so stupid and you would only like her because of how pretty she is! AND SHE'S UGLY! IT'S MAKE UP MORONS! And now, she's on drugs and drinking. Justin's fans are so stupid. I bet they are irresponsible teens who leave their house in a normal outfit, change into tiny shorts and a crop top (ugh kill me), and party. Like, wow, how about those grades of yours?

Justin Bieber pushes teens into become little idiots who you want to kill. This is coming from a 11 year old who has to walk by teens who curse all the time. I live in ...more - maddyparrot22

Wow. Justin Bieber is on the list. So surprising. (sarcasm)

4People who walk really slow in front of you

Or worse... When they STOP right in front of you when you're trying to get somewhere... ARGH! - Jeheffiner

People do this in the school hallways and our school is TINY. It's so annoying! They just get in your way, it's like "Uhh, don't you have a class to get to? " I hate it!

My school is actually kinda big, but there are WAY too many people (circa 1,200 people). It's so annoying and the high school that I'm going to in like two years has EVEN MORE people (circa 5,000). - Anonymousxcxc

It's so annoying when people do this!... It's like move! I want to go somewhere today, not in about a years time!

As a "fast walker", I HATE this.

The only one I know is really bad at it. I'm not sure if this makes him funny, or even more annoying - Fwingsnitch

They ruined middle school for me. I can't even look at that building without having bad memories rushing back to me. They ruin people's lives for literally no reason besides that they're bored and jealous. There is nothing more annoying in life than dealing with one of these people. Even worse, millions of people have committed suicide because of nasty comments from bullies. There is absolutely no excuse for that.

Bullies push you around and do mean stuff and make fun of you. Bullies make you emberassed. - pandagirl512

Bullying can be annoying, or harmful, but it usually depends.

Terrorists Hit The Twin Towers. Those People Ruined Peoples Lives! Those Basterds.

They kill innocent people. Because of them Afghanistan, Somalia, Pakistan and pretty much the Middle East and Africa are now killing zones. If you want Americans and Israelis out of you land killing your own people as well is not going to help.

Yes, that is right. However, there were American terrorists too. It isn't just limited to people from the Middle East, terrorists are everywhere

This should include all forms of behaviour that make other people life hard or harder! Any form of behaviour that makes it so that other people can't or don't enjoy their lives! Any form of behaviour that makes it so that other people don't feel safe or have difficulty or unwanted, unneeded, unneccessary distractions from going about their own lives!

They're dangerous, not annoying.

I voted for this because of what the Republican party is turned into. If I had to draw a picture representing the Republican party, it would be a fat, 50-something, Southern, overly-religious, man, wearing a white cowboy hat and yelling crap about gay marriage and how Obama is the Antichrist. If Mitt Romney is elected, I swear I will move to Canada.

People always say that Republicans are mean and annoying. Well if you're one of those people, let me explain something to you. Just because they mostly don't agree with gay-marriage, does not mean they're mean. They're just agreeing on what the bible says. About how people should be able to have babies after marriage to teach them about Jesus. Also Republicans dislike abortion and don't many like Republicans partly because of it. NEWS FLASH: Abortion is murder and it's immoral. People say that women have the right to chose what's right for their body, but the babies are not apart of them. Also: fetuses are people too. So maybe they're not as annoying as some people think.

I'm a libertarian and I think republicans are even more annoying than democrats. Republicans just hypocritically babble about how they want to downsize the government, then they try to take control of marriage, attempt to ban abortion, continue a hopeless war against drugs, etc.. At least the democrats admit that they're going to inflate the government.

Bravo! Although I have to say I do think Democrats are just as annoying. Long story short, they both suck! - theOpinionatedOne

Trump guys...Trump

8Screaming babies

They won't shut up, and every time you ignore them, they just scream louder. They don't know when to quit.

Babies scream because they can't say actual words when they try to get your attention. I know it's pretty annoying, and people try their best to stop the screaming. Imagine if a baby screamed loud enough so the whole world can hear it! That would be some IRON lungs, or maybe STEEL lungs, or any other hard material like DIAMOND. Don't be mean to babies just because they scream. They just want your attention. I don't care if this is repetitive. I just hope people listen to this advice.

When a baby screams, try your best to stop them. Don't be mean to them and don't shout. Try to use baby videos from YouTube.

But when a five year old screams, that's annoying because they beat you up whenever you say something. You can't try your best to stop them. If you try to give them something, they trow it to your face. Including mobile phones.

It's when parents do NOTHING about it that annoys me!

Rap is not all Sexism drugs and money - rap is an art, with some lyrics being a lot better than half of these old poets we used to have to do in school. If rap can inspire people to do drugs, then what about all the raps that promote doing something with your life - Kendrick Lamar: "get up off that slave ship, build your own pyramids write your own hieroglyphs" or the rappers fighting depression - Eminem: "Just letting you know your not alone, holler if you feel like you've been down the same road" or the almighty Tupac who raps about violence against women: "I wonder why we take from our women, why we rape our women - do we hate our women? ". How would all you rap haters feel if we fans all said the same thing about Led Zeppelin, or kept pressing the fact that John Lennon was a creepy man who hit women and children? Rap has been the way out for many people from "the Hood", and the only reason some of the lyrics are harsh and violent is because ...more

I mean I don't like American rap music, but country music is way worse. - Anonymousxcxc

Music is too subjective to be on this list, personally I am not a fan of the music however I have listened to enough of it to know that it is not all about violence and money - try again

Yall say Rap is Bad. Country music Really sucks. Country singers just talking about girls and having sex and and getting drunk and their girl dumps them they throw beercans at both of her shadows. Luke Bryan Jason Aldean and those other male singers are nothing but trash they just talking about having sex and getting Drunk on girls. at least on Rap they talk about other stuff besides girls Go Rap.

Actually rap is way worse lyric wise. I never hear country singers cuss as much as rappers do.

Who added rap?

Why are a lot of people racist? Why do some people only care about their own race? I hate racism! In fact, everyone should & it should be a crime. Let me tell you a few things that are so racist that they bother me. It's just two things, so basically I don't feel any racism around me. The first I'm going to talk about isn't that much of a big deal. I just feel like it might be a little overboard. Anyways, my younger brother & I are half Asian & half Hispanic people that were born in Texas. I'm not really racist, but my brother's friends & him, well, I feel like they're racist. Kids at school once like to make jokes about him because he's half Asian. They didn't really care about his Hispanic side. Not only did they make jokes about him because he's half Asian, they also made fun of each other. Apparently, they like to make fun of their own races, so that means my brother & kids from his school are racist. I feel like this should stop. If they keep it up with their racist jokes, a ...more

There is a lot of evidence around them that they are wrong. UK, USA, China, Japan, Germany, Italy, Russia, India and many other countries are all very very different, but they are full of science, technology, music and many other aspects that are not that dissimilar! I know a lot of people of high abilities from many different places and of different religions. Racist arguments are inept, as they can see for themselves. - PositronWildhawk

I'm Slovenian, yet they still talk to me like I don't know perfect English.

Like for this instance when I visited Los Angeles:

Person: Hello. Your country?

Me: (raise eyebrow)...Slovenia?

Person: Oh. My name Cade. I hope you like here. You understand what I say?

Me: (are you kidding me face) No, I don't understand what you're saying because you should not expect me to instantly like it here in the US since I'm a damn first timer.


I'm looking at you, Donald Trump. - mayamanga

11Email spam

I just hate them so much... They always take everyone's valuable time and many of them aren't useful.

I don't have an Email account but this sounds pretty annoying. - PrinceAntho

I have a friend that takes advantage that she can message me and is posting random subjects like 'i like tings' or'lines of death. ' - SomeRandomStickboy

Not sure if it counts, but on Animal Jam this new jammer kept sending me spam Jam-A-Grams. So annoying - mayamanga

12Getting in a slow line at the bank/supermarket etc..

...and watching the others lines move forward.

Ugh! Especially when my mom forces me to come grocery shopping, and the line we are in seems to be the slowest one! - RockFashionista

This is why I love self serve tills, less standing behind someone nattering on a mobile while being served at a checkout. In a slow line I feel like yelling "COME ON ALREADY"!

Of course it's only the line YOU'RE in. - PianoQueen

They are annoying and they keep coming up in games

I hope someday when they give out advertisements, they can put an automatic skip button or a button that lets you choose if you want to play the advertisements or not, and tells you what they are about, because I can hardly enjoy Happy Wheels when the ads pop up. Some ads are interesting, while others are not. Most of them aren't that interesting.

Especially when you're in school and the ad covers the part of the page you're trying to read, and the firewall blocks the part of the ad where you can exit out so I have to refresh the page a million times and read four words at a time. - pandagirl

It's the absolute worst when there's 4 of them back-to-back and you can't skip! THESE REALLY NEED TO BE CONTROLLED!

14Slow internet connection

Long loading times for web pages, videos buffer, video games are (almost) unplayable at times. I hate waiting for 10 minutes until everything is finished loading. - thatnormalguy

Sick of seeing that spiral rotating for hours on end just for something like a five minute YouTube video - PositronWildhawk

It takes only 1 minute for it to upload but once I tried to get on but instead it took 20 minutes - Jake09

Most in ROBLOX, slow connection but I have FAST connection. - SwampertBABY

I suppose its annoying but it also all helps. Without war, the world would be over-packed with humans. Destructive humans. They cut down trees and make special animals extinct. After years and years, we'll finally make the atmosphere collapse and die. We need to cut down on humans in order for our species to live.

Keeping humans in order is what sickness is for. War is just stupid - DFuzzBear

War is the worst thing it kills over millions of people, it is just horrible

War is the one of the most awful things ever. You kill millions of people and then leave other people sad and well dead too.

War is just unnecessary. Can't we just all live without it? The world would be a much better place. Everyone should just make up and stop.

16Non stop talkers

I have a friend that is talkative. I just hate that, she is like. "Hey, you know who I saw yesterday in the park? Erika. Remember her? She was my cousins girlfriend, that girl who used to be addicted to television. Television? I can't lose for a second time "American Idol". Janelle Arthur didn't win, can you believe that? Do you know who I think of when I see Janelle Arthur? She kinda looks like Marta. Remember Marta? She was my best friend in second grade. Remember second grade? I peed my pants once. I said my pants, I must not forget that I have to buy those amazing pants I saw on Marie Claire yesterday. Remember Marie Claire? It used to be my sisters' favourite magazine. Remember my sister? She's in New York now..." and blah blah blah.

No... I don't care about your views on politics. No... I don't care what the government does In Area 51. Yes, I do want you to stop talking. RIGHT NOW.

its almost like they are having a conversation with themselves, which I find annoying, but look at the positives in life... Right?!

As a quiet person whom hardly talks, I agree. I have stuff to do, so have fun with your gossiping!

17Lying politicians

You might as well say, "politicians" because doesn't every politician lie?

This happend to me today. I was playing bowling with my friend and then my other friend came up so I put the pins up for her the way my friend did to me. Then she got all mad at me for no reason. I told her my friend set it up the same way I did then my other friend who I fist played with said that she diden't do that. I HATE LIE'S!

Yeah, unfortunately this comes with the human nature, after all "everybody lies" - MatrixGuy

Because of Hilary Clinton...

I think it's actually worse when you wake up really early and can't go back to sleep.

If you are autistic then you have side-effects of insomnia, I can't sleep because of that.

Is this the reason why it takes me an hour just to fall asleep even if my sleeping conditions are perfectly normal? - Anonymousxcxc

I stayed up for three days straight and my dad found me laughing on the kitchen floor at five am in the morning
