Relax, I’m not writing this to troll you, but rather to help ease your frustrations. With that said, it’s important to remember that none of us are perfect. We all need to be willing to make some small changes in our lives if they will ultimately lead to a more satisfying experience. Of course, every individual is different, so what works for one won’t work for another. But in the end, these tips might just save you some frustration as well! Here is a list of most frequent Frustrating Things That Happen to Everyone..
Traffic is a frustrating, aggravating experience for everyone. Whether you’re stuck in traffic or just driving around during rush hour, it’s easy to get frustrated with other drivers and their driving habits. Here are some tips for coping with the frustrations of traffic:
- Take photos from the front window instead of from inside your car. This way you can see what’s going on in front of you. You don’t have to worry about getting out and putting yourself at risk of being hit by an oncoming vehicle (or getting hit by someone else who was too busy texting themselves). It also means that if something needs taking a picture of—like a beautiful sunset or some cute dog—you don’t have to worry about getting honked at or yelled at while trying to get out of your car without knocking over anyone else’s belongings!
Waiting for the bus
- How not to stress out:
- This one’s easy. You just wait for the bus, and it’ll come eventually! If you’re late, that’s okay; everyone else is too (even if they don’t know it).
- People who don’t know how to drive stick their foot on the gas when they think you’re about to pass them.
- I’m tired of holding the door for people who are in a rush and then they don’t even thank me.
- Just so you know, I think we’re all really sorry about this. It won’t happen again.* What’s your name?
- Please don’t smoke inside! Smoking is bad for your health! You should stop doing it!
These are all things that happen to everyone. It’s just part of life and can be annoying or frustrating at times. But there is nothing wrong with having these experiences as long as we learn from them and move on.
People who don’t know how to drive stick their foot on the gas when they think you’re about to pass them.
This is a common problem that people have with driving in general. It’s especially frustrating when you’re stuck behind someone who can’t seem to control their car.
People honk at you, not with you.
You’re driving along in the car and you see a beautiful sunset. You drive over to the park to take pictures and enjoy nature’s beauty before heading home. But when you come back to your car after taking your pictures, someone has left their honk-honking hand on top of it! It’s just so annoying!
People make dumb comments behind your back, not to you.
I’ve been thinking about this since the start of the semester. I think it would be interesting to have a chat with you all about what we’re interested in and what we’re passionate about. In the following weeks, I’ll be reaching out to a few of you via email to find out how many people are interested in having that chat.
If there’s something specific you’d like me to talk about (I’m open), just let me know! We can meet up somewhere or use an online platform such as Google Hangouts or Zoom for video conferencing if that works better for both of us (or neither).
People cut in front of you.
People cut in front of you.
It’s a common occurrence, and one that can be a source of irritation if you’re not prepared for it. The best way to deal with this is simply by knowing where the line is between “cutting” someone and “running into them,” so that you don’t end up feeling like they’re trying to hurt your feelings or make fun of your height (or whatever else). If someone cuts in front of you and then apologizes, accept their apology gracefully and move on with life—they mean well!
People don’t want to hold doors for you.
- This section has a little bit of everything:
- “No one wants to hold the door for you.”
- “You’re going to have to push it yourself.”
People scream at drivers stuck in traffic.
You are stuck in traffic, you’ve got nothing to do but stare at the clock. Suddenly, a woman screams at the top of her lungs and throws her hands up in the air.
“Oh my God! I’m so sorry!” she says, with a look on her face that says “How did this happen?”
The people around her stare blankly at you as if they don’t understand what just happened either. Some of them even start smiling uncomfortably. It’s like being caught cheating on an exam by your teacher (or worse) but then getting called out by everyone else who knows about it!
Your friends forget your name but remember the way they say it.
Your friends forget your name, but they can’t get enough of saying it.
- You don’t have any friends.
- Your friends are too busy hanging out with other friends to spend time with you.
You’re not sure how to react when people try to be funny by saying things like “I’m going to get my drink” or “I’m gonna go sit at the bar.”
Online dating is ridiculous.
- Waiting for the bus: If you’re waiting for the bus, expect people to walk past you and stand in front of you.
- Lost luggage: You may be wondering why it’s so hard to get your bags back if they go missing at an airport? Well, think about it this way. If someone has your suitcase (and throws away all of its contents), would it really be worth having all those clothes back? No! So let’s just say that if someone steals from us in order to buy drugs or booze with our credit cards—then we’re not really going to miss those things anyway.
- Bad weather conditions: If there’s bad weather and no one around on foot or bike paths, then maybe consider taking a cab home instead of walking through dangerous streets with cars speeding by at any moment…or else risk getting hit by one!
The Internet makes no sense, and it’s hard to find things you’re looking for online anyway.
If you’re thinking about starting a business, chances are good that you’re going to have a lot of communication with people. You’ll need to communicate with your customers and potential customers. This means you’ll probably want to make sure everything is in order before launching.
In this section, I’m going to talk about how technology has changed the way we communicate: from cell phones and social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter (which were just starting up when I was growing up) all the way through email and instant messaging today.
Takeaway (or “How not to stress out”: This is the first point where I get a little personal, so I’ll end the post in this section.)
One of the most frustrating things about being human is that we’re never sure of ourselves. We think we know what’s going on. Sometimes our feelings can get mixed up and we end up feeling like a failure or an idiot. If you’ve ever been there, then you know how hard it is to recover from this feeling. I’m not just talking about when it happens to me! Sometimes I just feel so stupid in general! So here’s my advice: don’t stress out too much. There will always be someone else who feels similarly as frustrated as you do (and probably even more).
Not everyone gets the same story from any one person when it comes to a new job, relocation, or life changing event. Some people thrive with challenges and setbacks while others throw their hands up in frustration. But it doesn’t have to be like this. The Internet is full of information on how you can relieve stress and bring order where there was once chaos with some tried-and-true techniques.
