This link is hysterical. It lists the little mundane things in life that drive us absolutely crazy:

They're all minor 'OCD' annoyances we all encounter from time to time.

Hope it makes some of you laugh because a lot of them are very true.

And on a deeper note: It feels like such a blessing to have THESE types of things be a problem in life or something we complain about. Many people worry about where their next meal will come from, if they will be arrested for their political, religious, or moral beliefs, some are wrongfully imprisoned for crimes they did not commit, parents are searching for their missing children.

So if these really are the 'absolute worst 21 things' in your life, you should be able to laugh and feel blessed at the same time.

Yep...this one right here does it every time!

Nothing like turning some well written notes into a mess!

Haha, that was pretty good, and I can relate best to 15 and 16, which I might add, for a guy, the morning ritual of leaning over the toilet in hope of good aim, it can be a real challenge.

TMI? Too late

I like the pencil one too, never fails to do that once sharpened, and so often the whole piece of lead comes out also.

AHH the hangnail made me cringe a bit!

Overall, definitely good for a lot of smiles and nods in agreement.
I despise all those things...

Nice find

Well, if this was a test for OCD, perhaps I would be diagnosed as such.

Haha... Let's run down the list shall we...

1. Definitely hate that.
2. Love pizza rolls. Hate when they are empty...
3. My cord-ridden recording studio/bedroom luckily has no room for a computer chair.
4. Let's just stick to loose leaf paper...
5. Many a belt loop lost to this atrocity to engineering.
6. No comment.
7. It took me 25 years to stop nailbiting. Thanks to this very reason.
8. Why don't I eat Pringles?
9. So I lick the rim... (Oh God.. that sounds horrible...)
10. No comment.
11... Actually missed this on the first pass.. I am anti SOPA, PIPA,
and whatever other internet censorship there is.
12. Refer to number 3.
13. No comment.
14. AAAAHHH!!!
15. Reminds me of needing to bite my nails. Need to bite the wood. (Oh God...)
16. Agreed.
17. I have had thoughts of stapling.
18. Indeed.
19. Why??? It's even worse with orange juice cartons.
20. No matter how much you bend it back...
21. Activism+Metrosexuality=BlackEyedPeas... I would listen, but I do not enjoy watching.

Okay, now that I have invaded the thread with my thoughts that may or may not matter entirely...
Have a great day!

It's a great list. Mind if I add to it?
    I don't remember seeing the proverbial empty toilet paper roll and that one ranks way up there.
    Detours are another.
    Construction zones on our route.

It's too true that those annoyances raise our stress levels, but they can also teach us patience and the need to slow down. Cheers.

I saw this list the other day and it got a good laugh out of me. Funny how we can all be affected by the same trivial things but don't notice the commonality until it hits the interwebs haha

Thanks for posting
