Top Ten Most Annoying Things That People Do

So many people are nice, but the habits that they do are just so annoying. Some of you probably experienced these at least once in your life.

The Top Ten

1 Huge groups walking slowly ahead of you on the sidewalk and there's no way past them

This happens to me in the hallways at school. There is always this one kid who is SO SLOW walking RIGHT in front of me! He has actually made me late for class before! - Minecraftcrazy530

I was in a candy store to see if they had extreme sour and then a huge group came in and I'm like left... Right... You know what? I'm trapped - AnonymousChick

This drives me bonkers. Get out of the way!

This always happens to me, and then when I try to walk through them they get annoyed.

2 People who call others autistic to insult them

Why would anybody do this? Autism is a disorder, a thing that challenges real people in real life and isn't just something to throw around as an insult. Plus, being autistic doesn't make someone an idiot, and the imbecile using it as an insult is proving then and there that not every idiot has any sort of disability. People with disabilities are equals, and that isn't any less offensive than racism or misogyny. - pandagirl

Whoever does this is a downright cruel person. Autism shouldn't be an insult to throw around. They know NOTHING about autism, and they shouldn't be using it as an insult. - Minecraftcrazy530

If anyone thinks autistic people are bad I hope you burn in hell and get struck by lightning

I have autism. It makes me feel very offended when people use autism as an insult, because it's not. It's a social and communication disorder.

3 When they eat noisily

My younger brother used to do this and I got annoyed, now my youngest brother does it and it just disturbs my ears!

I can't stand this.. my brothers do this constantly just to get on my nerves. - CloudofMercury

4 Abuse their pets

Should be hung!


5 Sticking gum under tables

Err disgusting like when I'm at school and I drop my fork or something I put my hand under the table for support and I feel something slimey on my hand look up GUM!


I almost touched it under a desk once. GROSS! And the janitors have to pick that spit covered junk off as well.

The tables at my school are flooded with gum if you put your hand under them you can feel the dry gum - RockStarr

6 Using 'gay' to mean lame

My teacher challenged a student on this. He asked the student "What if when I talked about something I didn't like I said "That's so Brian"? " He then started calling things he didn't like "So Brian". Brian stood there, not having any argument to prove himself right. Brian has not said anything since, at least none I've heard. If we all do this, we can help. There is no argument for homophobia, in this case not even religion. Yet people say it anyways because that's socially acceptable... why? While I absolutely HATE people who do this, this is one we can work towards an end to. You get to watch an idiot crash and burn in the process! - pandagirl

These people just need to stop using gay as an insult and start being a decent human being.

Or saying "retarded" or "autistic". Butt yeah, would you like it if I said "What the hell are you, gay? " whilst you really ARE a gay person? Didn't think so.

I never knew that I thought people said Justin Bieber is a homosexual - venomouskillingmachine

7 They don't pay attention to what you say

Sometimes I want to tell my family stuff very politely by tapping them, etc but they keep ignoring me after I repeat it a few times, and I have no choice but to scream in order to get their attention (which always works)

I have a quiet voice. so when I'm having a conversation I'd repeat every sentence.

They are always concerned about them selves and want others to focus on what they say but when we are in their position then they simply ignore what we say and they carry on with their own work.
This usually happens with me in school when I tell people about how I spent my wknd and there is always one girl who acts super smart and ignores what I say and when I ask her about it so she simply nods to give me sympathy that she did a big deal listening to my bloody statement.

8 You let people past but they push past you anyway

SOOO TRUE! This always happens to me at grocery stores. One time I was in the frozen food isle, and their was this lady who was standing right behind me. She said excuse me, I was just about to move me and my cart over when she just pushed right on pass me. How rude!

My sister always does it. I'm taking one third of the hall and she storms past me pushing me, - AnonymousChick

9 They do not pick up things after themselves

My sister leaves her dirty clothes/dishes/trash everywhere! Like, new flash, you’re not the only one who lives here!

10 Act sexist

I hate it honestly. When I told a younger girl that I played with dinosaurs when I was younger she said eww why do you play with stuff. I had to explain to her there no such thing and boy or girl stuff

There is no boy " stuff " and girl " stuff " there is just stuff! It doesn't matter what u like if your a boy or girl. Especially the girls at my school.

12 Drinking directly out of a bottle

Unless it's a 20oz bottle, this is a no-no. - KalloFox34

Depends: if you are sharing with a significant other then no big deal. If it is the neighborhood wino then no thanks.

Waterfall instead! This means dump the water in your mouth without the bottle touching your lips

It's not gross at all! I do it! - Turkeyasylum

13 When they don't wash their hands after using the bathroom

Every time I go to Walmart, I always end up going in the bathroom just in time to see someone walk out one of the stalls, straight pass the sink, and right out the door. Eww!

It gross

14 Eat with their mouth open.
15 When they drive slowly

It so annoying

Especcially when you are driving a ferrari

Actually not all old people drive slowly. I’ve seen/known plenty who speed and are reckless drivers

I hate that too you should have to retake the test to renew your liscense starting when you reach 70

16 Clicking pens

Yes! This girl in my class does it all the time in the exams n I get so annoyed

Yes, an immediate sign of cultural retardation

18 Like, overusing the word 'like'

I love how some of the items on this list contradict itself! - Turkeyasylum

Like, seriously!

I honestly say "like" for everything😂

19 Using the word "autistic." as an insult

How dare someone call somebody autistic as an insult! It is a disorder that people suffer from and it effects there day to day life. I have an autistic brother and he can't speak and it has effected his life. He has never been able to communicate with me and it is devastating. When somebody calls me autistic...oh boy... they better watch out! 😜😜😜😜😜😜💩

20 Picking their nose in public

One of those things I always see people doing in traffic at a red light.

21 Can't decide what to order

Can't decide what to eat at the restaurant... even though' you com here a lot... Taking forever especially to decide on menu item when a meeting is also going on. If you are dining with family that different, socially decide order move on... Just be focused and be aware, be polite, kind, quick, move out of the way, get off your phone and focus... some people totally lived in a bubble and never realize how their actions are perceived by others.

22 Get mad over the dumbest things
23 Doing Fortnight dances in public

Fortnite sucks anyway. - KalloFox34

I know that there are many Fortnight fans out there so please don’t get mad at me, but I HATE it when people do Fortnight dances in public. - KKwing

24 Butting into conversations

Yeah and then you wait till they get finished and they completely ignore you. I try not to interrupt people - SirSkeletorThe3rd

But then everyone thinks you're quiet when you wait for others

They just want friends. Talk to them. Get to know them. They could be a great friend! - Turkeyasylum

I hate it when people interrupt! This happens at my lunch table. Some quiet dude suddenly decides to join in. >:(

25 Smoke

I absolutely hate the smell of cigarette smoke, sometimes I have to get out the area where the smoker is. Same thing with people who smoke weed. - KKwing

Smoking is plane dumb

26 Hating
27 Swear


28 Block you for no reason
29 People Singing Friday by Rebecca Black

Happens every Friday at my school

Eh, I’ve heard worse

Rebecca black is cute. But It is the worst song ever. This should be number one on the worst songs list. I want to commit suicide when I hear it. This happen to me all the time.
I'm 9 years old already. She isn't even on vevo like Justin beiber, Rihanna, Katy perry,
Taylor swift, Jason derulo, and Beyoncé, she is 19 right now. She can't sing properly.
She sometimes makes me vomit and her voice sounds like a dying rat with a mosquito bites in her throat. Delete Friday. Her cover for wrecking ball and we can't stop. Is great.
I also like party in the usa

30 When you hold the door open for someone and they just pass without even acknowledging you.
31 Littering
32 They don't thank you for holding the door for them

Agreed - Ihateschool

33 Invade your personal space

Sometimes I have to use caps to emphasize a word because in the comments they don't have bold or italics, yet they do for the posts. - Anonymousxcxc


35 When people ask you for gum

I'm not a greedy person but when a whole group of people see that you have gum it infuriates me because it happens every time. One person asks you for gum then everyone else does when they all get a piece, you don't have any left for yourself - they even ask when you're down to your last three pieces - they want their gum and you run out!

Selfish nerds always ask for gum and they never thank you or get to know you. - DCfnaf

36 Taking Selfies
37 Make grounded videos out of users

That happens in go! animate and plotagon.

38 Using 'gay' as an insult
39 Using 'cancer' as an insult

Just like using autism as an insult Rude!

40 Try to be "rad and cool"

Its annoying when people try to show off!

41 Exaggerate trivial matters

How ya doing' Tumblr? - Mochi

42 When they backwash

They're not very smart as smart people are

43 They give you something and act like you stole it from them

My brother does it so much

44 When people walk slowly in the halls

Basically 90% of my school. - KalloFox34

Like I'm trying to go somewhere!

45 Treat school aged children like 2 year olds

My relatives constantly do this. It really gets on my nerves.

46 When people whine like a baby to get others to notice.

My cousins in a nutshell

Like, their in one room and your in the other room and you hear screams. your like "PERSON WHO'S WHINING PLEASE. QUIET THE DOWN! "

47 Capitalize the first letter of every word

I used to do that, if you do this and you don't know how to stop, ask your parents for advice and try as hard as you can, then you'll get used to it.

0% is a 0 people only one is a not a clear zero.

Yes That Is Definitely Annoying. Why Do People Do This? So They Sound Superior Because Every First Letter Is Capitalized?

lol face. - DCfnaf

48 When people get angry when you don't move out of their way when you didn't even know they were behind you
49 When you win over someone at a game, they send their squad after you.
50 Say "Why doesn't someone help?"

I hear this a lot, from people who don't volunteer to do it themselves, about the church, the organization, PTA, cook for a sick friend, visit someone in the hospital. If you are wondering who should help, first question you need to ask is: what have I done?
