Whether you can’t stand slow walkers or the sound of someone eating, everyone gets annoyed by something.
But more often than not, we refrain from talking about it – feeling as though complaining about something so minor is selfish.
But if there’s something that’s been aggravating you so much to the point it’s eating you up inside, it’s time to talk about it – and you can do so over on a recent Twitter thread that was started by a man named John Miguel McCauley.
On 15 February, John decided it was time people opened up and got their grievances off their chests.
He wrote to his Twitter followers: ‘In such a beshitted world, complaining about small things can feel selfish or petty. Not here, friend. Tell me your insignificant grievances.’
And in a matter of minutes, people came forward to let rip on what annoyed them most about the world.
From minor annoyances to things that the world can relate to, people came in from all angles to relieve a little stress from their overworked minds.
For some people, it’s their fitness trackers that annoy them most
@Mickey_McCauley my fitness tracker tells me to stand up even tho I work at a stand up desk and I feel like I’m being unfairly judged

For others, it’s dogs and their inconvenient love
@Mickey_McCauley my dog refuses to cuddle next to me most days of the week and when she does want to it’s while I’m working

When you’re already preparing to be mad later
@Mickey_McCauley i don’t have anything to complain about in this thread, yet will probably think of 10 things later.

When you want a seat but don’t want to tell a stranger your life story
@Mickey_McCauley if I don’t wear clothes that show I’m pregnant, I can’t get a seat on transit. If I do, strangers ask me the baby’s name.

This is the worst
@Mickey_McCauley my neck hurts, but not enough for me to do anything about it, just enough to be bothersome.

She should start a petition
@Mickey_McCauley I bought a groupon and the spa cashed it without my using it and I can’t get my money back.

Who needs ‘collection only’ deals when you can’t be bothered to collect?
@Mickey_McCauley only one good restaurant delivers to my apartment. It’s tragic. I eat a lot of sushi

Amazingly, John replied to each and every one of the people who unleashed their fury on him – proving him to have the patience of a saint.
John’s thread has been the perfect release for many people who struggle day in, day out, to keep their annoyances to themselves.
We definitely think the thread should become a monthly, no, weekly thing in order to help people keep a clear mind.
In fact, John should definitely check out his career options when it comes to being an online frustration outlet – there’s just got to be a market for people whose problems aren’t major, but still somewhat significant.
