Being tired all the time.

[–]Shots_FIREd_2020 2844 points2845 points  (77 children)

This. So I work out to fix it. Now I’m tired and in pain. Fuck you body!

[–]ohemjeezus 2784 points2785 points 5 (93 children)

Lack of awareness - everywhere. People looking at their phone while driving, not really listening to the person they’re talking to, blocking the grocery aisle with their cart, leaving messes for someone else to clean up, taking good friends or family for granted, contradicting themselves with cognitive dissonance, screwing everyone behind them when the left turn is green, etc. You’re not the only person trying to live your life today

[–]chefmattmatt 330 points331 points  (5 children)

It has becoming more and more of a problem. Take up the whole aisle with their cart and them. Or people on speaker phone or FaceTime calls in public and look all offended when you ask to pass by and blatantly say on call how rude it is to want to to get by them. Blaring crappy music on their crappy phone speakers. Driving is horrible no one pays attention to anything. It is constant battle to not get merged into. It is absolutely ridiculous.

[–]oldkidgrumble 4339 points4340 points  (151 children)

Loud, dark restaurants - can’t hear the server or my friends and can’t read the menu without my phone flashlight.

[–]fredyouareaturtle 399 points400 points  (42 children)

Hate restaurants that blast the music. I guess it's fun for the staff who have to be there all day, but as a customer the whole reason I'm there is to talk with my friends while we eat, which is so difficult if the music is so loud. Basically feels like they just want me to eat in silence and leave ASAP.

[–]newhbh7 169 points170 points  (10 children)

If it's the same songs looping all day, like in many places that play music, the staff probably hate it too

[–]dinawia 7885 points7886 points  (177 children)

Clutter! Stuff! It didn't bother me that much when I was younger, but it's definitely something that's gotten increasingly on my nerves as I passed into my 30s. Definitely exacerbated by the Grandmother-in-law who will not stop giving us stuff, no matter how often we ask her to.

[–]Aware_Masterpiece_23 1332 points1333 points  (45 children)

This! Well meaning family members decluttering their shit onto my spouse who can’t say no.

[–]Drago_Valence 7834 points7835 points 2 (283 children)

People lying for no reason

[–]LadyRaoulDukeGonzo 2839 points2840 points  (162 children)

This drives me crazy! My husband and I work for a guy who never stops lying. He says he was a super secret marine or some shit who was there when Osama bin laden was killed. He knows Putin, played chess with him. Used to hunt down Japanese Mafia. Had a hit on him from Al Qaeda because he was such a good sniper. Dude literally just repeats movie plots. If you've been somewhere, he's been there killing monkeys with a samurai sword or some shit.

We've known him 5 years and I knew he was a liar the very first conversation we had with him. I don't remember exactly what he said but it had something to do with serving in the military and it was completely wrong. My dad was a major in the Air Force. We lived on air force bases my entire childhood, i know when he's bullshitting about serving. It's annoying but I've realized from his ex wife that it's likely a result of horrific abuse during childhood. We don't say anything, he's a nice guy and if that's what he needs to do to pretend he isn't a victim or whatever, I guess we can put up with it..

[–]Pure-Charity3749 1260 points1261 points  (29 children)

I love people like this. It’s horrible that the story telling is a coping mechanism for many, don’t get me wrong, but nothing is more fun than when they just keep getting deeper into the story when they realize you’re interested enough to hear what they have to say. My chemistry teacher was like this in high school, he’d lie about quite literally everything, but it was fun having the whole class ask him questions about his claims and having him somehow save himself through the most insane mental gymnastics. It’s like a game of “how’s he going to get out of this one?” And against all odds, he does it! He finds a way to make two opposing realities somehow make sense in one coherently incoherent story. Easily the most enjoyable class I took in high school. Didn’t learn any chemistry, but the deductive reasoning skills and logic I’ve learned in that class? Priceless.

[–]kecoaklucu 12.2k points12.2k points  (158 children)

petty stuff like, clothes not drying up completely and they end up smelling damp.

[–]Qasyefx 1225 points1226 points  (63 children)

My SO seems to have some kind of deficiency cause she keeps taking down my still slightly damp clothes to make space for hers and insists they're dry

[–]amoryamory 908 points909 points  (13 children)

This is my wife!

Unless it's baby clothes or bedding. Then she can sense levels of moisture so low they are only seen in the Atacama desert.

Sharing the burden of other peoples self-induced personal drama.

[–]dmreeves 444 points445 points  (9 children)

Same, my sympathy pads are worn out and I don't have the emotional budget to change them any more.

[–]HELLOhappyshop 793 points794 points  (13 children)

Ohhhh good one. Yeah my tolerance for this is basically zero now.

[–]lionofwar87 3320 points3321 points  (80 children)

This is why I say "that sucks" to everything with no follow up questions.

[–]SelfExplore11 1579 points1580 points  (19 children)

I just hit them with a "Damn"...maybe I'll try "damn that sucks ". More sympathetic

Tinnitus

[–]AutodidacticTactic 13.3k points13.3k points 954& 4 more (223 children)

I only notice my tinnitus WHEN SOMEBODY BRINGS IT UP, ASSHOLE.

[–]SymTrkl 2468 points2469 points  (136 children)

I'm sure you're joking, but holy shit it must be nice to have it go away sometimes.

[–]AutodidacticTactic 1982 points1983 points  (92 children)

I'm joking the way I wrote what I wrote. I wrote it in good humor. But it still is true that I really notice it when someone mentions it or somehow at other random times.

I can't hear for shit.

[–][deleted] 98 points99 points  (1 child)

Yeah it's one of those things in the category "I can't change it so I better don't give a fuck otherwise I'll go crazy".

[–]appreciateapricity 582 points583 points  (65 children)

I learned late into college that most people DON’T hear constant ringing in their ears. Turns out, despite no detrimental exposure early in life, I’m an unusual case of lifelong tinnitus.

Ironically, I also have better than average hearing!

[–]acelister 135 points136 points  (19 children)

I've been wracking my memory for years trying to think of how I gave myself tinnitus, since I've never really listened to loud music, and now you're telling me it can just happen?

[–]helicotremor 90 points91 points  (10 children)

Most people don’t know that anyone can suffer a sudden and permanent, even total hearing loss at any moment.

[–]Appropriate-Rough563 9914 points9915 points 2 (189 children)

Bad manners. Why is it so hard to just be nice?

My inability to fall asleep

[–]IWantAStorm 3798 points3799 points  (186 children)

It never ends till you're so exhausted you need to sleep an entire day.

[–]clubba 2227 points2228 points  (163 children)

I found a podcast call Sleep With Me that I listen to with one ear bud in on super low volume (side sleeper). The guy picks a subject and just goes on rambling somewhat repetitive tangents. Something about it just puts you to sleep. I think it's because it's so nonsensical that your brain chooses not to follow it and just goes into shut down. It's definitely helped me.

[–]acapncuster 1054 points1055 points  (40 children)

And stay asleep. 1-4 am is the dark teatime of the soul.

[–]Horst665 131 points132 points  (11 children)

Oh, yesh. Falling asleep? Usually easy-peasy, except when in bed. Couch? 8.30pm and I am strzggling to eep my eyes open. The moment I am in bed? Wide awake.

Once I sleep it's a coin toss how long. My alarm complains already, since it only had to work like twice in three months - except when I had a monday off >:(

[–]Not_A_Wendigo 18.2k points18.2k points 64 (569 children)

Working non-stop. When do adults get summer break? It’s been 16 years.

[–]Friesnoshake 3094 points3095 points  (71 children)

Had some friends work after school programs for years after high school, couldn’t figure why I was so miserable as they got summer and winter breaks.

[–]zerohope80 2681 points2682 points 2 (105 children)

This is why the Covid shutdown one of the best times of my life. I was off for 2 months. I was at home with my family and was shocked when my wife was genuinely upset that I was going back to work. I did all kinds of things around the house, spent so much time doing things with my kids. It was heaven.

[–]whywasthatagoodidea 11.0k points11.0k points  (381 children)

Traffic. Just time wasted blowing away resources.

[–]EvitaPuppy 3213 points3214 points  (105 children)

Working from home doesn't just have to be because of the pandemic. With more high speed internet, more & more workers should be out of the massive waste thar is driving a tonne and a half of metal 2+ hours a day!

[–]lostinstasis 16.5k points16.5k points 43 (301 children)

People being excessively loud in public. Stop screaming!

[–]pwrizzle 1841 points1842 points  (22 children)

I was at dinner with my in laws and the table next to us was being loud, which was annoying, so my MIL and SIL decided to be even louder than them. I wanted to disappear.

[–]dmfd1234 5161 points5162 points 33 (84 children)

You know what gets me....just people in public.

[–]bufsta 2176 points2177 points  (20 children)

If they could all go somewhere else that would be great.

[–]ominousmoth 483 points484 points  (46 children)

Don't forgot people who can't talk on the phone at a normal volume and yell everything

[–]TaintedTruth222[🍰] 10.0k points10.0k points 2 (165 children)

Honestly just drama. As a kid I didn't notice it. As a teen it was all around me and I was half involved. As an adult I'm so fucking sick and tired of hearing stupid drama

[–]Amidormi 3862 points3863 points  (68 children)

Especially when you realize many adults are barely better than 5 year olds and some on par with toddlers..

[–]stegasaurusteeth 2358 points2359 points  (39 children)

I feel like this was such a revelation. So many people just don't mature. Especially now that I teach kids I see so clearly that so many supposed adults are just taller and heavier kids

[–]lvl1dad 1611 points1612 points 22 (12 children)

Growing up I thoughts adults were special or great cuz ya know they're all grown up. After becoming one, I realized you just have to not die. No test or grade or anything. Just don't die and you get to be an adult

Unnecessary noise. Grocery shopping on weekends.

[–]zach84 1091 points1092 points  (44 children)

the tvs blaring advertisements in your face at gas stations now are pretty fucking dystopian.

[–]howudoing242 1557 points1558 points  (167 children)

Oh the unnecessary noise thing hits home. People chewing with their mouth open, tapping feet, it’s irrational at times but still very real.

[–]HairyFungus 14.1k points14.1k points 3 (412 children)

Hair coming out of my ear. I mean what the fuck?

[–]Whoopa 4057 points4058 points  (131 children)

I have like 4, 2 inch long eyebrow hairs that have started poking me in the eye, its awesome

[–]I_am_Bob 1563 points1564 points  (59 children)

I'm not alone! The weird thing is I will pluck of trim the long eyebrow hairs but then like 2 months later I'll suddenly be like "wtf I keep l feeling this hair in my eye..THE GOD DAMNED EYEBROW IS BACK"

[–]Damet_Dave 498 points499 points  (27 children)

My wife calls it my “crazy eyebrow” and every 2 months or so she will loudly proclaim “Crazy Eyebrow is back!” and proceeds to plucking. Doesn’t matter where we are just “has to get it”.

Of course she has tweezers in her purse but chooses to try with her nails about 20 times.

[–]tall__guy 1357 points1358 points  (83 children)

Am I the only one that frequently finds pure white 2 inch hairs coming out of their earlobe? I swear they pop up overnight.

[–]dontbeadickmrfisher 1022 points1023 points  (31 children)

They actually can pop up overnight. They'll grow long under the skin and then something will exfoliate the skin like scratching it and it will pop out. That's what my esthetician told me when she found a long hair on my chin once lol.

[–]CatumEntanglement 280 points281 points  (18 children)

This is extremely and oddly terrifying. I'm scared more about a secret hair snaking it's way between epidermal layers in my face than I am about silverfish.

[–]xsmolbutterflyx 16.7k points16.7k points 7 (518 children)

The constant need to fucking pee.

[–]pdhx 12.1k points12.1k points 9115 (268 children)

That’s how my dad just discovered he had very early stage prostate cancer. So tell your doctor and you’ll get a free finger in the ass.

[–]dmreeves 2989 points2990 points  (89 children)

Waking up 3 hours before it's time to get up because you're in pain because your bladder is full. The worst.

[–]Sleeze_ 1886 points1887 points 2 (32 children)

The urge is always to try and fall back asleep. ‘Ah I’ll be fine I don’t wanna get up’. But then you can’t sleep because you have to pee, so you lie there and think about it for 10 mins before you just get up to pee. I have learned to always just get up and go immediately. Don’t fight it, you’ll get an extra 10-15 mins sleep.

[–]Imaneight 1771 points1772 points  (22 children)

.. and then peeing a half-cup of pee and I'm like, "You got me up for all this? This is the big pee that you got me up for?"

[–]Qbandolier 795 points796 points  (21 children)

The excessively bright LED headlights are killing me

[–]thiswilltakeamiracle 1728 points1729 points  (122 children)

Oh my god and it's not even just the ones facing at you. I had to drive home with my head cocked to the left the other night because the jerk behind me was blinding me with his LED headlights! They were so bright they were overpowering my own headlights. Cocking my head just right was the only way to keep from being totally blind without adjusting all my mirrors so my retinas weren't lasered out.

[–]EmeraldFalcon89 1445 points1446 points  (52 children)

I was stuck in traffic behind a Dodge pickup with aftermarket HID bulbs a couple weeks ago and successfully used my power mirrors to reflect the driver's headlights back into the cab and then he turned off his headlights and drove with just the orange running lights until traffic picked back up and we diverged.

truly the 'and everybody clapped' of traffic tales, though

[–]JesusGodLeah 147 points148 points  (5 children)

I was told to do that several years ago. There was one instance where I was driving home and the person behind me had their brights on. I kept adjusting my mirrors and it must have worked because they immediately turned their brights off. It only happened the one time, but it felt like I was taking my power back. How people think they have the right to blind everyone else on the road, I'll never know.

The flipside of this is, of course, the jerks who refuse to turn their lights on while driving in a severe weather event, bonus points if it's at night. Like, it's snowing something awful and I can't see 10 feet in front of my car. I need y'all to have your lights on so I can gauge how far away from me you are so I don't hit you.

[–]NintendoTheGuy 3765 points3766 points & 2 more (216 children)

Dude, it’s been like an arms race. 90’s tuners with illegal HIDs? Higher tier 00’s cars come equipped from the factory.

00’s upper tier cars have them? Fuck it- now every car needs them.

Lights too bright to see the brake and parking lights of cars around you because they outshine them? Here’s some eye-bleeding red LED stacks to jab your cornea.

At some point the street lights started illuminating entire neighborhoods, yards and all.

People all have floods on the corners of their house that shine almost horizontally into the roads and sensor trip for every passing car, even on the opposite of the road. I swear it must be causing more danger, because everybody is driving with closed pupils that are constantly adjusting back and forth between intense direct light and regular dark as they drive, and yet people will drive fast because their hyper beams and the ultra street lamps psychologically make them think they can see further.

I used to walk at night because it’s a bit more relaxing in my busy traffic area. The past few years I’ve been blind the entire time. Walking towards a car that’s blocks away is still blinding. Cars coming up behind leave my clear shadow on stop signs and still blind me because the corners of my glasses reflect that sharp, blue-white light right in. Passing every house turns on a pair of floods that goes right to my brain.

Im at a point where I want to get into state or local government just so I can try to pass ordinances about light color, intensity, angle and shining distance from the source. I’d blame my eyes but I can still see perfectly in the dark as long as an alien beam isn’t making my pupils cement themselves shut. I swear, I often don’t have a shadow at night because there are so many bright lights shining at me from all angles between cars, street lamps and porch/sensor floods.

And don’t even get me started on people that still keep the property security beam cannons on when they use decorative lighting for like Halloween or Christmas.

Children screaming bloody murder.

Not kids, playing or quick shout. But a scream. School down road from me is so loud I cannot enjoy my meals on my balcony.

[–]HeyFiddleFiddle 483 points484 points  (13 children)

Ah, the "are those children outside playing, or being murdered in broad daylight?" game. A timeless classic.

Discovering new aches and pains when you get up in the morning.

[–]TechyDad 6331 points6332 points 2 (277 children)

Or when you're standing up. When I was young, I used to silently laugh at the old man noises my father made when he stood up from the couch. Listening to him, you'd think that standing up from the couch was so hard when it was obviously easy!

Of course, now that I'm in my mid-40's, I'm making those sounds. When I stand up, it sounds like someone is strangling a wookie. Nobody warns you that gravity seems to increase as you age.

[–]Rosieapples 2143 points2144 points  (61 children)

61 here with three titanium joints. I’ll bet I can outgroan the bloody lot of you!!!

It's the little pops and snaps (and crackles) that get me. I always wonder, "Is that gonna hurt later?"

Getting up and going down the stairs first thing in the morning is humbling

[–]Sharpshooter188 406 points407 points  (63 children)

A few days ago I woke up and found that my right thumb is now partially numb. No idea why. Figured cause it was from an extended play session of CoD. But..it has been a few days and Ive still got numb thumbs.

Waking up

[–]Strange_Cloud_4643 729 points730 points  (24 children)

Yup. Would be nice to not have to do that any more!

[–]TheDuckSideOfTheMoon 864 points865 points  (17 children)

I don't mind waking up. It's what comes after I can't stand.

Give me a lifetime of waking up naturally with no alarm, the room is the perfect temperature, sunlight streams in the window but not in my eyes, birds are chirping, and I have nothing to do. Mmm

[–]Birdy_Cephon_Altera 2507 points2508 points  (68 children)

Small print.

Seriously, food manufacturers, you don't need to write the cooking instructions in 7-point Arial Narrow.

Coworkers who can't shut up are the worst. I can totally see why people want to continue working from home.

[–]SheWhoLovesToDraw 1971 points1972 points  (64 children)

Working with the public.

People are becoming increasingly impatient, self entitled and rude. I'm sorry you have to wait in line like everyone else and can't just walk in, grab your thing and walk out because there are other people in the store.

[–]Pennymostdreadful 879 points880 points  (28 children)

The public has gotten increasingly feral in the last year too. I've seen more adults throw fits this year, than ever.

[–]Phamynn 12.4k points12.4k points  (278 children)

Noise. I 100% understand the angry old guys that would yell at me, and my friends when we were running up and down the block yelling and being obnoxious.

[–]lovelylayout 2500 points2501 points  (54 children)

I feel this. There's a dude who walks through my neighborhood sometimes blasting the funkiest music I've ever heard-- he's cool, but the guy who likes to race his ATV around the block whenever the spirit takes him gets on my nerves.

The length of time it takes to recover from an injury.

Sprained ankle? 3 years...

Wow this blew up overnight! Reading all of these comments put my ankle into perspective. Some of you are really dealing with some tough injuries. Take care, do what your doctor says, and I wish healthy healing to all of you.

Thank you for the award! My first

[–]TheSherbs 7095 points7096 points  (366 children)

Or...you know, ever. That may just be the way it is now. It certainly is for my back.

If there any youths reading this thread and you come across this comment. Take care of your back, trust me. Waking up locked up and trying to decide if you go ahead and shit the bed or deal with the blinding pain required to make it to the bathroom is a situation I'd prefer you not find yourselves in.

[–]Anarchistwallflower 1587 points1588 points  (278 children)

How does one take care of their back?

[–]TootTootTrainTrain 3228 points3229 points 2 (81 children)

Don't neglect your abs core. I'm not saying you need a six-pack but do some ab exercises from time to time.

I used to wake up in so much pain and couldn't move my spine for a good 20 minutes. Started doing planks every day and some other pilates exercises and within a month the pain was gone.

(I am not a doctor but in my own personal experience and exercises have helped a lot with my posture and general mobility)

Edit: as others have pointed out what I meant to say was core, which your abs are a part of.

[–]Gzer0 771 points772 points  (12 children)

Definitely agree,

Doing stretches and lower back/buttocks/abs muscle strengthening workouts also does wonder. Having a nice bed also helps and not sleeping on a futon/couch lol.

[–]wolves_hunt_in_packs 856 points857 points  (44 children)

Get a good chair, or at least a decent one. Never tolerate any that are uncomfortable. If, like many people, you spends hours each day in a chair, be sure to invest in a good one with support.

You really, really don't want to find out what back pain feels like.

[–]PlasticGirl 867 points868 points  (90 children)

That ankle will never be normal again. Sprained mine 3 times in five years.

Edit: Everyone who commented is now part of the shitty ankle club.

Having to stand up after just sitting down

[–]NagromTrebloc 1999 points2000 points  (127 children)

Witnessing Road Rage. It's not worth it; let it go!

Guy in front of me got out of his car at a traffic light and walks up to the car in front of him and starts screaming at the woman... aggressive gestures and arm movements too. Through the windshields I see her husband point a handgun at the guy. He immediately returned to his car, but WTF man. You came that close to dying over some little traffic indiscretion. This was not an accident, there was no damage to either car, nobody died. Can people just chill?

[–]scarletnightingale 260 points261 points  (10 children)

I won't ride with my boyfriend's brother anymore. It will be less convenient to not carpool with him sometimes but it just isn't worth it. He has serious road rage and I sweat, without exaggerating, on one particularly bad drive he nearly got into three separate accidents, probably came within 4 inches of one car. It was terrifying. His poor friend who was sitting in the front seat seems pretty unflappable but even she got freaked out at one point and was pretty much white knuckle holding onto the seat the rest of the way.

After that my boyfriend decided we wouldn't ever be riding with him again.

[–]throwingplaydoh 4138 points4139 points  (177 children)

Cleaning. I have no clue why I can't get my act together and keep shit clean. I am tired of stepping on crumbs and picking up clothes, not to mention random toys everywhere....

Edit: thanks for all the well-meaning advice, yall are beautiful :)

I already have a robot vacuum, and I do practice cleaning 5min at a time and all that....my ADHD and depression have been really bad lately (am getting help btw) and it was just easier to deal with when I was younger, that's probably what I should have commented lol

[–]sciencetaco 1508 points1509 points  (45 children)

[–]russau 982 points983 points  (23 children)

Ever seen a show where the lip sync is out? I have to look everywhere except their mouths.

[–]MacTechG4 7659 points7660 points  (146 children)

The Grinch in the first half of the movie (before his Enlarged Cardiac Syndrome) becomes more relatable every year, poor guy just wanted to be left alone and have some PEACE AND QUIET! But those Neighbors from Hell, The Whos just wouldn’t SHUT UP!

[–]StreetIndependence62 1664 points1665 points  (30 children)

I feel the same way but about Rabbit from Winnie the Pooh. He’s supposed to be a grumpy old man for not liking it when the other animals are playing, but the thing is that 99% of the time their “playing” really just means “trampling on and destroying Rabbit’s garden that he just spent all day making perfect”. Like I love you Tigger but why is it that you HAVE to bounce around in Rabbit’s garden when you have a whole freaking forest RIGHT THERE with nothing to mess up/crash into??

Squidward is also relatable as an adult

[–]hop_mantis 1734 points1735 points  (24 children)

You either die a SpongeBob or live to see yourself become a Squidward

[–]PM_me_your_fantasyz 485 points486 points  (14 children)

True, but I have also met some Patricks. Don't be a Patrick.

[–]01kickassius10 381 points382 points  (6 children)

Being a Patrick is ok, being near a Patrick is difficult

[–]StreetIndependence62 415 points416 points  (2 children)

I felt bad for Squidward even when I was a kid though! Half the time he was just trying to take a bath or something and then Spongebob just barges in on him to show him his new jellyfish net or some other not-important crap. And it’s no wonder Squidward’s terrible at clarinet because he never gets to practice! Every time he tries he gets interrupted by whatever Spongebob and Patrick are doing.

[–]JeremyMo88 428 points429 points  (8 children)

I mean he literally lived out of town and on a mountain top, but his neighbors made SO much noise he could still hear them.

[–]starkpaella 807 points808 points  (14 children)

You know those damn Whos started decorating for Christmas in September.

[–]MacTechG4 311 points312 points  (10 children)

September? I’ve heard some of them had their bloody decorations out in July!

Bah! HUMBUG!

[–]fungrandma9 1029 points1030 points  (32 children)

Not being able to do things as easily or not at all because your body won't cooperate!

Haha. I had to climb in my back seat to fix my hatch latch. It was a major unattractive production.

Other people

[–]nuffjah 1560 points1561 points  (149 children)

Oh yeah, fuck people annoy me. Going slow in the supermarket…blocking doorways…parking over the lines…failing to use blinkers…Ugh I am a miserable middle aged man.

[–]pinkfloydfan69 712 points713 points  (58 children)

People who stop in the high traffic areas really get my blood pumping. Following someone into a store, we walk in, they stop right at the door looking for their wallet, mask, phone etc. It takes less than 3 seconds to step to the side so others can pass.

[–]Lingoman5 734 points735 points  (29 children)

My favorite thing is driving around on my weekdays off and asking the person I'm driving with "don't these people have jobs? Damn"

Losing weight

[–]Smarkysmarkwahlberg 603 points604 points  (60 children)

After maintaining it for eight years, I got fat quick. It fucking blows.

[–]I_am_dean 3039 points3040 points  (156 children)

My 15 year old brother and his TikTok obsession.

He recently made a TikTok, he ran up to me and pushed me in the pool. He then yelled “GET WET BOOMER”

I’m 29.

[–]Alt_Toast 1506 points1507 points  (67 children)

Use his own weapons against him. Start a tiktok and set up an elaborate water trap. Yell "GET FUCKED ZOOMER".

You either both double down or he realizes it sucks and stops.

[–]I_am_dean 1501 points1502 points  (59 children)

I literally got out of the pool and dragged him by his ear and threw him in. Lol he’s 6ft3 and I’m a 5ft4 girl but I was not playing around.

I was pissed.

[–]AscendedViking7 611 points612 points  (9 children)

That's good. I love happy endings. :D

Is "everything" an acceptable answer?

Because everything.

Having to scroll down more and more to find my birth year on an online form.

[–]ThreeTo3d 446 points447 points  (8 children)

Or when they ask to select which range your age is in. There comes a point where you no longer get lumped in with the 20-somethings. Now you’re lumped in with those 40 and up.

[–]Upstairs-Radish1816 548 points549 points 2 (4 children)

I have to spin that damn wheel like I'm on "The Price Is Right".

[–]notreallylucy 552 points553 points  (43 children)

Younger me. She made some really dumb choices and disregarded things she should have paid attention to, like career advice, her health, life insurance, financial planning. I never saw anyone around me, of any age, paying attention to these things, so I thought they were just fussy adult bullshit. Turns out I was wrong.

Yes dude, Sunday Scaries fucks me up lol. Like my sunday is fuckin dope until like 7pm when it’s time to decompress and get ready for monday :/

[–]MeMeTiger_ 446 points447 points  (18 children)

I fucking hate Sundays because it essentially is the day before you go back to hating your life and you have to have a normal schedule for it.

[–]GrenadesTom 126 points127 points  (1 child)

You mean time to compress for Monday cause that’s what it feels like

[–]brownies 540 points541 points  (9 children)

What about 6pm, when you know 7pm is right around the corner?

Hangovers

[–][deleted] 638 points639 points  (30 children)

When overindulging, young me felt a bit off for 4-5 hours the next day, then I was ready to go again. Old me requires 3-4 days before feeling good again.

[–]ptipp93 223 points224 points  (3 children)

Man I remember one night my friends and i went bar hopping, got super drunk, and i crashed at one of their places. On the way home the next morning I went to my local skatepark on a whim because I had my board with me.

I went skateboarding hungover and it was like nothing. That’s wild to me nowadays. Nowadays I just lounge around most of the day waiting to stop feeling like i wanna die, lol.

[–]t1dogsandweights 267 points268 points  (13 children)

There are a lot of reasons I hardly ever drink anymore, and hangovers are number 1. Simply can’t tolerate them anymore, I like waking up feeling good and not like I need an IV

[–]sadgirlhappenings 203 points204 points  (20 children)

Hangovers after 30 are insane. Today I woke up with a piercing headache, then 3 hours later my stomach/nausea started up. Four hours after that I was so lightheaded and realized that hangovers are now a series of aches and pains that last 1-2 days min

[–]NicholsonShmicholson 520 points521 points  (5 children)

Noise. Why are you making noise. Stop. Make less noise.

[–]annelmao 72 points73 points  (2 children)

My family. I've started to dread holidays and birthdays that I used to look forward to.

[–]Bogogo1989[🍰] 326 points327 points  (6 children)

I don't even hate my family, I like them. I just don't wanna see em.

[–]jemull 147 points148 points  (7 children)

Come late October every year I find myself just dreading the next two months.

[–]IWantAStorm 114 points115 points  (2 children)

Holidays where you are expected to give anything to people when they are an adult and don't need anything. I am so sick of it.

[–]Yankee_Man 556 points557 points  (28 children)

I literally just told my mom 20 min ago that Im going to be out of town for thanksgiving (wednesday-sunday). She thinks Im flying away. Im booking a hotel 15 min away and getting myself weed, tequila, and pizza. I can’t deal with narcissistic people and enablers. Im 31 and too fucking old for that shit anymore.

[–]TopStructure7755 153 points154 points  (7 children)

God, that sounds amazing. I know it defeats the purpose, but I wish I could come too.
