How Annoyed Do You Get By Little Things Other People Do?

Honestly I don't know how you do it, but you don't let people annoy you very often. You must have some kind of mental shield that allows you to block other people's aggravating habits out! Not that I'm criticizing your methods; in fact...could you please teach me your ways????

You get annoyed with people sometimes, but you're able to save yourself the extreme aggravation when you really need to. But you can't help but freak out and text someone (or post a Facebook status) when someone does something REALLY awful.

You can't help but let other people's ridiculousness get the best of you. It's not your fault; you can't help knowing that you're the decent one while everyone else is an inconsiderate weirdo. You wish you could teach self-awareness to everyone in your immediate vicinity, but you just don't have the time.
