Click bait titles.

Listening to music on your phone's speaker while in a public place.

-Words-Words-Words-

Taking pictures of strangers in public for the express purpose of making fun of or shaming them on the internet.

Arthrine

Designing an ad so that the "X" to make it go away is really just a facade to make you click on the ad.

KnightSolAireJordan

Mail addressed to "neighbor" or "current resident". If you don't know who lives there you shouldn't be able to spam mail me. It would save a lot of paper and gas too.

LyeInYourEye

Having videos that autoplay with audio on a website.

LyeInYourEye

Ask your doctor about prescription medicine commercials.

Companies putting crappy stickers all over the product that sticks to the item when you try to peel it off. Come on, I know I'm not the only one.

People who, when shopping, block the aisles for selfish reasons. I know aisles are easy to block by accident, I just really hate it when elderly people are having a conversation right in the middle and have seemingly blocked out everyone else's existence. And I kind of wish I could blast an air horn at them.

ToErrDivine

Websites asking me to subscribe to their newsletter immediately after I visit them for the first time, without even having the chance to look at their content.

Playing any type of car noise (like honking) during radio commercials. I can't tell you how many times it's thrown me off while driving. I'm surprised there haven't been more car accidents caused by this kind of stuff.

Acediass

Leaving shopping carts in parking spaces. The place to return it is right there!

I'd also add people that leave garbage in the carts and people who leave carts down the street.

MTNVINNY

Creating pants with tiny pockets or no pockets at all.

Ryokoo

Super Bright Headlights on tall vehicles.

Who needs them.

Trygle

Adding people to Facebook groups without their permission.

I DON'T CARE ABOUT YOUR JAMBERRY WRAPS, JENN.

caitlington

Letting your small children make noise and mess about unattended inside the movie theater during a movie that they can't appreciate, understand or shouldn't watch. Don't take your 7-year-olds to see Logan if they can't be quiet or sit still for Pete's sake.

Making the volume go way up for commercials. Man, that really grinds my gears.

rypenn27

A clique of people walking in a horizontal line that practically devours the entire sidewalk, and then are still somehow entirely oblivious to the fact that they are doing so or just explicitly don't care.

Alladean

People using speakerphone and complaining about being victimized when people comment on it.

"Stop listening to my private conversation!"

"That'd be easier if your private conversation wasn't louder than my max-volume music through my sound canceling headphones, you jerk."

Blaze_fox

People who spit out their gum in parking lots and public walkways.

All_Your_Base

People driving slow in the passing lane.

d0ubleR 

Littering...oh wait.

Not like anyone seems to realize that in most places it is illegal.

anditsmeg13

Talking during a movie in a movie theater.

Omnipotent_Goose

I have a million but PUTTING YOUR FLYERS ON MY CAR WINDSHIELD! WHO SAID YOU COULD PUT THAT THERE?

_madlibs_

Growing a big bush on your corner lot house that blocks the view of the intersection.

Racism is an insidious, and unfortunately prevalent, force in all of our daily lives. Maybe we're on the receiving end of it, being treated differently and losing opportunities because of others' preconceived notions.

Or maybe we're on the other side of things. Even those who aren't actively racist or discriminatory still have to process the world through the filters of the things they've been told about people who are different.
