The internet is a treasure trove of memes, cat videos, and heartwarming stories that we all love getting lost in occasionally. But while scrolling innocently through these feeds, have you ever been ambushed by images that really get under your skin? If so, then you're not alone! Warning: We have gathered some of the most annoying photos ever taken, so if you are easily triggered, maybe this article is "not" for you!
We’re Off to a Bad Start. This Is Hard to Look at!
OK, this is just cruel! It's as if an evil housemate purposely planted this toilet paper roll, knowing that someone in the house suffers from OCD. Why else would someone drill the toilet paper holder through the side like that? Looking at this image is like listening to someone drag their fingernails down a blackboard. The sight of it just makes me cringe. I feel triggered, and I "have" to look at it!
My palms are even starting to sweat now! This is not going to be an easy article to write. Let's hope the next one is a little better than this!
Little Blue Sprinkel Causes Chaos!
Who was I kidding? These pictures are not going to get any easier. It won't be long before there's steam coming out of my ears! I mean, look at this one. The second I saw this lonely little blue sprinkle surrounded by thousands of red sprinkles, my first thought was, "Can you imagine ordering ice cream with red sprinkles only to find this little blue guy lurking in the middle?"
I'm sorry, but I would have to return that ice cream and ask for a refund. Oh God! I just took a look at the next image. It's going to be a long day!
We Can’t Wait for the “24nd” Annual Event!
Oh, for goodness sake! Someone call the OCD police! Come on, guys, this is torture! Whoever printed this T-shirt needs to be put away for life so the rest of us never have to suffer visual nightmares like this again. My goddamn eyes are watering! Whoever created this annual swimming event must have overshot their budget and had to use last year's T-shirts. But that's no excuse for this terrible mistake!
When they changed 22 to 23, could they not have changed the "nd" to "rd?" It's like having needles stuck in our eyes! Warning: You should stop scrolling now for your own sake!
This Sidewalk Will Send Shivers Up Your Spine!
Is it just me, or does this sidewalk make anyone else feel nauseous? It reminds me of the old saying, "You can't put a square peg into a round hole!" Well, they gave it a bloody good try and failed miserably! Someone should call the town council and ask if they sanctioned this catastrophe. What a mess! A warning sign should be erected saying, "Don't look down if you have OCD!"
It would have looked better if they filled the space with stones or something. Are you ready for more of these cringe-worthy pictures? Please don't leave me to do this alone!
OK, People Are Officially Freaking Out Everywhere!
Whoever created this tally sheet is clearly "not" a sufferer of OCD. Because if they were, this sheet would have been burned, ripped to shreds, or destroyed in some frantic, dramatic fashion by now! This distressing display is the work of an evil asshole who takes pleasure in making people like me feel uncomfortable. Yes, if this person could see my toes curling right now, they would be very pleased!
Please, do us all a favor. Destroy this tally sheet so people everywhere can breathe a sigh of relief. Hold on! What's the point? The next image is fifty times worse!
Hubba Bubba Bubble Gum Trouble!
Why? Just why would someone do this? It's not a goddamn bubble gum “bar.” It's a roll of bubble gum, and you've destroyed it! I mean, it couldn't be any easier to use. Just start at the end and unroll it as you eat it. Everything about this Hubba Bubba bubble gum roll screams simplicity! Did you need instructions or something? Thanks a lot, pal. I’m starting to pull my hair out!
Hours of enjoyment have been destroyed in one single bite. Whoever did this should be brought in front of a jury full of OCD sufferers and given the maximum sentence!
A Tiny Mistake With Huge Consequences!
Brace yourselves, because once you see this, it's hard to unsee! As an OCD sufferer, finding this tile is worse than finding the weapons of mass destruction! The design is so perfect in its simplicity. And then, suddenly, it becomes complete chaos. If I were to walk through this room, I wouldn't even notice the thousands of perfect little tiles. That one misplaced tile would just give me the creeps!
Do you think this was done on purpose? The homeowner must have mistreated the tiler, and this is how he got his revenge. The homeowner will be forever haunted by this tiny mistake!
Manhole Cover Causes Mayhem!
The last person to lift this manhole cover was either in an awful hurry to get home, or they just couldn't care less about people like you and me! This broken white line is enough to drive me up the walls! How could they walk away and leave the cover like this? Do they not have a conscience? Even the manhole cover looks like it is laughing at us!
If I left it like that, it would bother me so much that I would lose sleep. I would have to get up in the middle of the night to go and fix it!
The Road to Hell!
This road paving design looks like a game of Tetris gone wrong! That's what happens when you go home early and trust your apprentice to finish the job. I can imagine the conversation between the construction boss and his young trainee. Boss: "I have to leave early. Can you take over and finish here?" Trainee: "Of course, boss. No problem. I know exactly what I'm doing. You can count on me!"
The next morning: "What the bloody hell happened here?" Trainee: "Sorry, boss. My mom called to tell me to clean my room, and I got distracted. Can't we just paint over it?"
It’s Time to Find a New Route Home!
When they put the covers back on these road maintenance holes, do you think they even noticed the OCD landmine they left behind? If the image were bigger, you would probably see a small group of people cowering in the corner behind the wall, unable to move any further! When those OCD triggers come knocking, it's like stepping onto the set of a horror movie. The intensity is cranked up to eleven!
It's like being punched in the gut as every detail becomes magnified. Someone should invent Google Maps for people with OCD so we can find a route home without being triggered!
There I was, walking through the supermarket, minding my own business, when this stopped me in my tracks! I swear, it was like running into a brick wall. I even called the manager and asked if he could fix it so I could continue my shopping. He just looked at me like I had two heads or something. I mean, WTF! I had to go home without my favorite juice!
When they ran out of white tiles, were they too lazy to get more? They must have thought, "Screw this! Pass me some of those green tiles so I can finish this and go home!"
Fig Roll Sends the World Into a Frenzy!
I get it. Some of you are looking at this photo and thinking how great it is to be different and that this symbolizes independence. You're thinking how brave some people are to move against the crowd instead of moving with it. Well, good for you because this goddamn fig roll turns my brain into a jukebox playing the same obsessive song on repeat. "Fix it, fix it, fix it!"
Somebody better eat these little fig nightmares so I can stop sweating and get on with my life. How did this even happen? Someone at the fig roll factory needs to be fired!
How did this even happen? It's so awful, but I can't look away. This once-perfect bar, now deformed by a gaping hole where its center used to be, makes me feel fascinated and frustrated all at once! I mean, what kind of teeth do you need to eat a KitKat like this? While it's burning a big hole in my mind, I can't help but feel sorry for the person who did this!
They must have teeth like a goddamn donkey or something! My brain's racing, and I'm buzzing with an urgent need to take action. Somebody, please put it out of its misery!
I’ll Never Shower in Here Again!
If I owned this bathroom, I would probably have to wash myself in the kitchen sink! How did that tiny red tile even get there? It doesn't make any sense. It must have been pretty frustrating for the tiler when he discovered he was one tile short. I can imagine him searching through his toolbox for something to fill the gap, only to find a tiny red tile in the bottom corner!
He must have been thinking, "They won't notice, will they? I'll just cover it with my toolbox until I get paid. Then I'll get out of here as quickly as possible!"
These Veggies Are Not So Good for You!
Whoever tiled this fruit and veggie supermarket section should go home and practice their jigsaw puzzle skills! When it comes to tiny imperfections that can send you into OCD overdrive, this misplaced tile takes the cake. I mean, all it needs is to be rotated to the right. Just one little turn and we can all go about our shopping peacefully. It's either that or I buy my fruit and veg elsewhere!
Right, I can't stand it any longer. I'm off home to get a hammer and chisel. I'll fix it myself. I may get arrested in the process, but it'll be worth it!
This Blasted Binder Brings Back Memories!
I've gone through so many binders in my lifetime, and this sight still sends shivers up my spine! It brings back awful memories from when I worked as an intern for a law firm. I swear that's when I started grinding my teeth. These blasted binders would last a week or two, and then the clips would start missing the target. I would hold my breath every time I opened one!
And what was my job? To make sure all the binders were in order, of course. I called in sick so many times they must have thought I had a terrible disease!
My Day Is Ruined!
For God's sake! Who's in charge of inserting the sticks at the twister factory? Well, whoever it is, you need to recalibrate your machines. Get your goddamn screwdriver and tweak it a little, would you? How many lopsided twisters have to leave the factory before someone gets fired? How am I supposed to eat this? It won't be long before it slides off the stick and lands on my lap!
If there's one thing that grinds my gears, it's a crooked ice pop! Even the guy in the other car is thinking, “Look at the state of that twister!”
I don't get it! Is the entrance to this building supposed to look like this? Surely this is a mistake. What were they trying to achieve? It looks like a trip hazard, except it's not. If I worked in this building, I would have to hand in my resignation. I would tell them, "Either the stupid design at the front door goes, or I go!" I would probably be fired; I'm only an intern!
It looks like it's intentionally designed this way. All the pavers are cut to fit into this ridiculous shape. Weird right? It's enough to give me a nosebleed!
Somebody Eat It, Quick!
It's as if the orange M&Ms have kidnapped one of the green M&Ms, hoping no one would notice! Either that or this was done by a child who couldn't resist the temptation of their favorite M&M flavor. While chewing on an orange one, they must have thought, "I promised Mom I wouldn't eat any before dinner time. I'll just replace it with a green one. She's not very bright. She won't notice!"
Well, at least the greedy little fellow doesn't suffer from OCD. If he did, he would be compelled to take action, no matter how minor the issue is!
This Is the Final Straw!
Well, that's one way to get the day off to a bad start! What monster did this? I would line up all my housemates and interrogate them until I found the culprit. This Minute Maid carton was designed so idiots like them wouldn't have to wrestle every morning to get a glass of juice. There's a twist off cap, for god's sake. As I contemplate the carton, my mind whirls with accusations!
There's only one thing worse than opening a carton like this. Walking in on one of your housemates drinking from the carton! It's enough to make me move out and find a new home!
Once You See It, You Can’t Unsee It!
I must admit, It took me a minute to spot this one. But once I did, I couldn't focus on anything else. Whoever was tiling this floor must have been on a massive hangover or something. When they stood up to look at the finished job, they must have gotten the fright of their lives. And it looks like they had no intention of fixing it, either. Another get-paid-quick-and-run situation!
If it wasn't making me so anxious, it would be funny. It's even possible the owner of this building didn't even notice it for weeks or months. But when they did, I'd say they were furious!
Am I Alone With This Issue?
This bothers me so much that fixing it always takes me a few days! It just makes me cringe. And even though it's a simple fix, I'll sleep on it at night and let it annoy me. Sometimes I get so angry with it that I can't sleep at all. I'll get up the following morning with big bags under my eyes and curse it out as if it could hear me!
Why is this particular issue so toxic for me? Sometimes I'll even sleep on the sofa just so I don't have to deal with my blasted bed. I think I need help!
Literally Every Plastic Packaging Ever
Honestly, I don't think they used to do this. It happens to literally everything, from toothbrushes and child toys to... well, pencils! I don't know whether it's because of cheap materials included or companies just do this to make us 'remember' their products. But in any case, this happens way too often not to get infuriated. Looking at this alone is enough to give me goosebumps! Take a look...
The only cheat code I've found so far is to cut along the side with a scissor, just make sure to cut the plastic. Nevertheless, it's still a hassle!
Spying on the Competition!
The rivalry between these two cola companies has gone so far that the Coca-Cola bottles have started to kidnap the Pepsi! But let's be honest. If you were a die-hard Coca-Cola fan and you unpacked this six-pack at home only to find a Pepsi imposter, you would be pretty pissed. This takes the Pepsi challenge to a whole new level. What would you do? Would you return it and get your money back?
I know what I would do. I would put it in the fridge, and it would be there for months. And every time I open the refrigerator, I would get annoyed!
Mind the Bump. It’s Pretty Confusing!
Someone needs to go back to kindergarten and learn how to do basic spelling! It is as if the guy who always does the white lines got promoted to words, and then they were demoted back to white lines after the first day. Or maybe it was done by a foreign worker who promised they could speak perfect English when offered the job. Either way, drivers everywhere are confused!
Let's hope the same guy didn't need to write "STOP" anywhere. Because if he did, cars would be crashing all over the city while wondering what the hell "SPOT" means!
The Shape of Things to Come!
This goddamn rectangle is making my head spin! Am I the only one who thinks this is infuriating? It's enough to push me over the edge. "Hold on. I need to take a break. I'll be back in a few minutes..." OK, I am back. Sorry about that. I needed to go to my happy place. Where was I? Oh yeah, this god-awful rectangle!" It's pretty sh*t, isn't it?
If you asked me how many rectangles were in this image, I would have to go back and look again. That one crooked rectangle takes all the focus off the rest of them!
CapriSuns Are a Real Source of Mental Pain!
CapriSuns have been around for years, and some people just can't grasp the concept of entering the straw through the hole provided. They just prefer to catch the straw in their fist and start stabbing like crazy. Take a look at the poor guy in the kayak; he got it right in the armpit! While this method can work, juice usually ends up spraying the sofa orange, leading to screaming moms everywhere!
The most annoying thing about CapriSuns is when you buy one, and there's no straw attached. Now that makes me angry. You end up having to open it with blasted scissors or something!
I Don’t Even Like Rubik’s Cubes!
You know, I already have a Rubik’s cube at home, but when I saw this one at the store, I had to buy it. Don't get me wrong. I didn't want to buy it; I just had to. I even left the store and tried to walk home, but it bothered me so much that I returned and bought it. I just couldn’t stand looking at it any longer!
As soon as I handed over the money, I started to wrestle with the packaging. I ripped it apart and turned the facing section clockwise. The relief was so satisfying. Perfection!
Push Here to Become Furious!
We've all been here before. You come home from work absolutely starving. Only a quick meal will do. Mac and cheese, perfect! "Push here to open," it reads. No problem. You start pushing, but nothing happens. The carton is still sealed. You try again and again. Still nothing. You start to wrestle with the carton until it looks mangled, but the carton wins. You lose your mind and grab the bread knife!
You start sawing away at the carton with the bread knife. Just as you're about to slice into your finger, a hole appears. You've done it. You've beaten the carton!
The Blind Leading the Blind!
I don't think I've ever seen blinds like these working perfectly. They never seem to fall evenly. When you pull on the cord, expecting them to fall gracefully, the blinds seem to have other plans. One side dips faster than a racecar on a downhill slope, while the other side hesitates like a stubborn child. As the blinds struggle to find their rhythm, you're left yanking the chord and hoping for the best!
Eventually, you walk away feeling frustrated and beaten by this simple mechanism. As the sun beats in the window, you accept defeat and move to another room!
Fanta Fans Everywhere Are Very Angry!
Why are these Coca-Cola cans packed in Fanta wrapping? They look like they're in disguise or something. Are they trying to escape the factory for some reason? Maybe they're fed up with being in the fridge constantly and want to go to a warmer climate. It's the soda conspiracy of the century. Coca-Cola seems to be on a mission to take over the world, which is not great if you're a Fanta fan!
But really, you would be pretty annoyed if you did purchase the fizzy orange soda only to have Coca-Cola steal the show. It's enough to make your blood boil!
Lunacy Or Genius?
The way you cut up a pizza to serve can actually be pretty controversial. We ourselves have seen many a way to cut a pizza (a round pizza cut into squares, pizza cut in ridiculously small triangular pieces), but we've never encountered a pizza cut in such fashion. It actually took us a minute to realize why it was cut into seemingly random wiggly pieces. Can you take a guess?
If you had said, 'because they avoided cutting up the pepperoni,' you would have been correct! Congrats! Maybe this man is actually a visionary and sees structure where we see disorder. You decide!
Blueberry? Think Again
This looks like your regular, delicious blueberry waffle, right? At least, that's what this person believed. He ate two packs of 'blueberry' waffles, only to discover upon closer examination that they were, in fact, just regular ol' waffles. The 'blueberries'? Mold on expired waffles. Honestly, we might have been fooled too! Sometimes expiration dates seem more like a suggestion, don't they? We're curious, though: would you have been fooled as well?
The question is, was the person who ate this really just careless? Or, and bear with us, is the maker at fault for not packaging correctly and making the expiration date more obvious? We smell a lawsuit!
Might Need to Take an Anger Management Class After This
If you haven't experienced a similar situation in school like the person whose test this is, did you really go to school? I think we all felt wronged by a teacher at one point in our lives as a student and maybe we weren't right every time. This person, however, has all the right in the world to feel pure fury. What's worse than being correct, but losing a point on a technical error?
This teacher might have done this on purpose (if so, it was out of pure spite), but it also might have been an honest mistake. But, own up to the mistake and give points when they are obviously deserved!
Am I Having a Stroke?
Try out these Sproduce grown in Georgia, Mfresh quality, a big Achoice of salads, and also Hchoices of toppings. TIT'S healthy! Are you confused? Don't be, it's just a SMART marketing strategy. Jokes aside, whoever made this either does not understand how acronyms work or is simply dyslexic. Either way, this sign is sure to bring customers in - to the restaurant next door! It would be funny if it wasn't so maddening!
The 'smart choice' would be to cut their losses and get rid of this sign. Maybe leave the acronyms out of it, when thinking about the next big marketing strategy.
You're Not Picasso
What is it with tiles being installed with absolute disregard for aesthetics or some sort of sense, at least? This tile design might have been beautiful when it was first thought out until someone just installed them in any way they could fit. Maybe this person didn't like the original design and thought they could do it better. Our suggestion is don't try to be the next Picasso, it's not gonna work out.
Although it would cost more than it is worth, we think it might be best to just redo the whole thing. Someone might get a seizure just looking at this.
Leave Geometry Alone!
The point of having geometrical design on things such as cups is precision; the precision is what makes it beautiful. The design on this cup is so messy, that you might get a headache if you look at it too long. It's misaligned in more than one place and is so irregular, we wonder how they even managed to do it. Would you be content drinking your morning coffee out of this cup?
We certainly wouldn't. Our hope is that this person just smashed the cup into a million pieces right after taking this picture - it might even be more precise when broken apart.
Stuff of Nightmares
Imagine waking up, it's a perfect day outside. You have a delicious breakfast, the coffee is just the right temperature, and you put on an amazing outfit, ready to start the day. Then you walk down this corridor and spot the tile of horrors. Would it not just ruin your day? There are so many misaligned tile designs we found for this article, we're starting to think they're all doing it on purpose.
But, hey, it did get their work featured on our site and now they're basically celebrities. So, not a bad marketing strategy, don't you think?
The Tiles Strike Again
You might think 'Enough with the tiles already!' and we would agree. Enough with the misaligned tiled floors, please! This one was just lazy, there is no other explanation. Or the person doing the job was color blind. What's your guess on how this infuriating situation came to be? A daily walk in the park down this path just became the most uncomfortable ordeal. Would you be fine walking here, we want to know!
If, like us, you'd be uncomfortable, maybe it's time to start a petition! The time has come to put an end to this nonsense! Can we count on your signature?
Will You Please Hold, Till the End of Time?
We've all been there, sitting next to our phones, watching the time go on and on, with no end in sight. And the call is usually about such a small thing, it makes no sense that you would waste hours of your time on it. The companies don't agree, unfortunately - in fact, they probably keep you on hold in hopes of you giving up completely! What was the longest time you were kept on hold?
The person from the picture is incredibly patient - I would have given up before the first hour was up. 'Oh the ticket is for France and my plan was Italy, but I have to wait 3 hours to change it? Guess I'm eating some croissants soon!'
