    And all of this was stuff that happened while getting ready for work!

    • Underbaker

      How about how when your pointer goes over someones intense debate picture and it gets big and you have the run the pointer back over it to see their comments. I like intense debate but I hate that feature.

      • thom

        Its so tough living here in the first world.

    • snooze

      First World Problems

  • Ummagumma

    #23 I think you need to see a doctor, dude. That's more than just your average eye boogers.

    • LucretiusCarus

      It's pink eye.

    • Yup

      Eye herpes maybe.

    • gromtown

      someone farted on her (?) pillow

    • Timothy

      Happens to me when I get poison ivy on my eye. Not fun at all.

      • Pesto

        Viral conjunctivitis. No need Dr. It is self limiting and will resolve without medication.

        • Yum

          might be bacterial. never know unless you test that shit!

        • Ace

          That's not viral. Viral conjunctivitis has a watery discharge. Bacterial conjunctivitis has a mucous discharge.

      • seussalot

        You say this as if it has happened more than once?

        • Turbi

          This comes from wearing your contacts for too damn long without taking them out.

        • https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1249552925 Timothy Nowell

          It has happened to me more than once. I work outside all the time and sometimes have to get into that stuff. Then I scratch my face after I forgot I went into it. Three times and counting.

          • R-Dub

            What "stuff" is outside that you get in to? Pus?

    • iwintehinternetz

      a little bit of crusty white stuff in the corner of your eye is normal..this is disgusting.

    • shnugs

      I think its called "water is good, fkn use it". xD

    • i.ch.ch.ch.chive u

      she said she doesn't want to talk about it. 😥

    • Ora

      Slept with their contacts in. Which by the way is one of the worst feelings when you wake up.

    • ita


    • dirtymike

      It's blepharitis.

    • https://www.facebook.com/charlene.lopez.73 Charlene Lopez

      Conjunctivitis!! arggggg!!! feels like you have broken glass in your eye…! plus a major migraine!!! guh……

    • ChivefullyHelpful

    • Nickincollege

      Anybody else try and click play?

      • mid13

        yes =[

      • MylesofStyles

        I tried to resist initially, but I succumbed to the temptation in the end.

    • absolutcarcrazy

      "This video cannot currently be played"….. SON OF A BITCH!!!!!!

    • http://www.facebook.com/carenomore David Johnson

      but the commercial loaded JUST FINE!

      • oldmanbingle

        Too fukn true.

      • MonkeyMadness

        FUUUUUuuuuudge!! I know, right?? It pisses me off to have to watch the commercial anyway but then the video refuses to load!! Dammit!

    • ChivefullyHelpful

      Press the up arrow key when you get the buffering dots and play a game of snake.

    • Anon

      Got me

    • Cinurwe

      Damnit, I tried to click play.

    • jeff donuts

      damn i must be stupid cuz it took me couple minutes before i got this. i actually thought my connection was slow and pressed the play button. found out later reading the comments.

  • peter venkman

    #23 almost made me puke. that's disgusting

    • amygdala

      gah! glad I wasn't the only one about to vom at the sight of that

    • mojo77

      I was just starting to eat a HotPocket when I got to this one!

      • STL World Champs

        "Now they make breakfast hotpockets. So you can have a hotpocket for breakfast, a hotpocket for lunch, and be dead by dinner."

    • pretty smile

      You sir are no Peter Venkman, if that almost made you puke.

  • realzoo

    #12 Hate when that happens. #2 Let the debate begin……Over the top.

    • Unfkngblvbl

      #2 Over the top, yes, but if you have a cat or a small child, under the bottom keeps them from walking in and unraveling the whole fucking thing with one fell swoop

      • Robert

        Usually, guys like it on top, girls like it on bottom. But, sometimes girl can be on top, that's good too.

      • StickyWickets

        Just tried this theory of yours out. It ended with the entire roll ripped off and in the toilet.

    • littlet

      Nah – totally prefer under…

      • Joe

        Go fuck yourself

        • Anomanom

          UNDER FTMFW!

      • banananah

        You go girl! It's about time someone stood up for us. Are you by any chance, also left handed?

        • JDB85

          Is that what it is? My wife is left handed and she does this all time. It's almost grounds for divorce…. lol

        • cows250

          I am left handed and it will ALWAYS go over. I have been known to change the TP at friends' houses to the "correct" position.

          • Herby Sagues

            Under is anti hygienic. I don't want to wipe my ass with paper that just wiped the wall (though I have to admit it would be worse the other way around).
            Other than the "cat" scenario, there's no advantage to "under".

            • TimmiT

              You're an idiot.

    • JJJJ

      #2 Over the top! I have a cat and 2 small kids – not an issue.

      • Buck

        Over the top. Under annoys the shit out of me.

        • https://www.facebook.com/justinsargood1 Justin Sargood

          Almost makes it seem helpful in that case…

          • JHL1

            Bravo! Bravo! Encore!

    • KyleGamgee

      I prefer Under, but I am a capable person who can deal.

      (My wife is not, so we keep our toilet paper in the Over position.)

      • party pooper

        I'm pretty sure the issue here is the roll being to big for the holder and also tight to the wall limiting the rolling ability

        • JHL1

          Do you wipe that mouth after pooping on the party?

    • Chris

      UNDER!.. You amatures

      • thatguy

        I thought this picture was about wiping your own ass…because too me that's annoying. It's 2012, you think they would have thought of something better by now?

        • The Bacon Chronicles

          Exactly – where are the 3 seashells, dammit!!

        • Herby Sagues

          Well, bidets were invented a few centuries ago, and almost everyone in the world uses them. I moved to the US recently and was desperate from the lack of bidets, so I ordered one of those BioBidet things. It is amazing.
          Wiping your ass with a piece of paper is like squeezing a turd in your hand and trying to get it clean by rubbing the bottom part with paper without opening it.
          Now I don't care if it is over or under. I don't have to use it.

    • Paul B.

      Grew up in a cheesy apartment with those really bumpy gnarly stucco walls… if the TP was under, you'd shred your knuckles in the middle of the night… That's a pain that never goes away.


    • Mike

      Over the top. Women are always placing it under, and leaving the toilet seat down too, dammit.

      • uronmytoe

        Can someone please explain to me the reasoning for it ever going under (besides cats or kids)?

    • corporate pawn

      Cottonelle already flushed this issue

    • https://www.facebook.com/charlene.lopez.73 Charlene Lopez

      excuse me but THATS how the Toilet paper should be pulling the paper downwards!!! Whats the effing problem?????

  • http://www.cupcakesbymartha.com MarthaJeane

    #4 This is one of those ones that makes me nuts. I purposely pull the corners down before bed to avoid it at all costs.

    #23 I dunno what that is, but it is worse than any eye booger I've ever seen.

    • MikeyCorl

      #23 eye STD?

  • Dustin

    # all – so true

  • chrisdg74

    #1 – That's what you get for spending 3x the money, just to have something that says "BOSE".

    • Dr Fap

      Its not just a name. There is a huge difference in sound quality.

      • Lil John

        Actually, the brand problem is APC. Absolutely every actual surge protector has transformer-spaced plus these days.

      • figleaf

        No highs, no lows… must be BOSE.

        Or in the proaudio circle Bring Other Sound Equipment

      • Juice

        There is a huge difference in quality, Bose is garbage. Do a little research, you'll see what I mean. For starters, read this:

        • Calihop

          Coby is by far the best! Bose can't even compare.

    • Squidders
    • http://twitter.com/McBeastie666 @McBeastie666

      it says Bose on it AND it's better quality and performance. yes, it is costly though.

    • May

      Put it on one of the end plugs and it will only take up two spaces.

      • yup

        Ingenious. Do you have a solution for the others?

    • Mike

      Very irritating. lol

      I love how people automatically think that because Bose tells people there the best then people believe it.

      Do you ever wonder why you cannot find a Bose product in a test area besides other audio equipment? Because Bose will not allow it cause people wouldn't buy it.

      Do your research before you post senseless comments, or go buy a slap chop…

      • DDD

        An annoying response on a thread about annoying things…….. inception….

        Annoying is when a thread pops up on someones area of expertise or thought of expertise they then lecture the thread about what they do and dont know about said subject…….

        KCCO brother…

        • Juice

          What's wrong with spreading a little knowledge? Not everyone can know everything about everything, so when you know more about something than someone else, spread the wealth!

          A little more tact could have been used, perhaps, but I can see where he's coming from. I'm really big into home audio and it's frustrating when people preach about how great Bose is when they know absolutely nothing about it, save for the fact they have heard of the brand.

          I'd rather spend less money on a better product, which I would hope is the case for most people, hence spreading the word about the marketing masters that are Bose.

          • Ben

            The problem arises when people automatically assume that a reference to a review or comparison page automatically makes them right.

            So, perhaps someone likes a brand more, and they have pages to prove certain specs right and/or wrong. It's still their ears, and their preference.

            I use Bose speakers on my computer for mixing and mastering, because I cannot afford studio monitors yet. They have a great range and great quality, to the point where I can master a song on my speakers, and it transfers well to my car, ipod headphones, and various sound systems. Granted, studio monitors are a must for a home musician, but until I can afford some good monitors, my Bose speakers have done very well.

            • Juice

              I'm sorry, but if you think iPod headphones are of any kind of quality, you are sorely mistaken.

              iPod headphones are 32ohm, an impedance found in lower quality headphones. Try listening to uncompressed tracks through 16ohm or lower headphones and you'll think you're hearing music for the first time.

              The problem is that people are satisfied with listening to highly compressed music through sub-par speakers, which is totally fine for them. However, it bothers me that they preach brands like Bose as "good quality" when they really have no idea what quality music through quality speakers actually sounds like.

              • Truth

                ^^Forever alone

                • Juice

                  Since the up arrows are pointing to your avatar, I'll assume you're talking about yourself. Being knowledgeable on technical aspects of something doesn't mean you're going to be forever alone. I have speakers so loud they blow women's clothes off.

                  • mittenz

                    I read once that the key to winning an internet discussion was not so much about being right, as it was about making your points in such a way that everyone else didn't just want you to STFU. Bad news, joose….

        • Mike

          I like how you replied to my comment when I only elaborated on what the OP stated. You sir must own a Slap chop…lol

      • Mowwy

        GRAMMAR…. Calling other people senseless! Faugh!

    • crazydog

      Bose is good stuff for the average person who doesn't try to pretend they can tell the difference….that said, there is ZERO reason they should make a wart that Fing wide (it's obvious from the relative cord diameter that it doesn't put out that much current) and no, you shouldn't need a unusual power strip.

      • Juice

        It sucks having to spend more money on plugging in your stuff, but I invested in a small arsenal of 1 foot extension cords. Never again will an outlet be lost!

        • Dr. fap

          Juice, I see you putting down Bose a lot and saying there are other brands that are better for the money but I do not see you naming any other brand. I love Bose because they sound amazing. I don't have any scientific data to back this up, just a loyal customer. I would love to listen to some better speakers.

          • Juice

            That is highly dependent on your budget as well as the type of system you are building. No particular company makes the best of everything, but there are a lot of companies that excel at certain things. For speakers on a tight budget, I am partial to Polk Audio. They use real wood cabinets, silk dome tweeters, and Kevlar coated drivers, producing very nice sound for not a lot of money. Polk, however, doesn't make very good subwoofers, so I would look at companies like Velodyne, Martin Logan, or REL (I have a REL in my main system), who specialize in making subs. Bowers & Wilkins is also releasing more budget friendly speakers, I have a pair of their bookshelf speakers in my bedroom. However, most of their speakers are in the mid to high end price range.

            Take a set of Bose speakers and a set of comparable speakers of a brand I named, hook them up to identical amps and play the same lossless track through it. You're going to be blown away by the difference in sound quality.

            If you're truly interested, check out this article on what one person found when dissecting a set of Bose speakers: http://www.intellexual.net/bose.html

    • jeff donuts

      this pisses me off the most. i always have to buy extensions

    • Caleb

      Dear Chive, please set it up where all douche-heads (that set their egos into play) need to sign in using their FB or some traceable account. Egos play rampant and make legitimate, high school graduates run the reply chatter, sending anyone with half a brain to search the next link.

  • Dunny_

    #12…I know, right?
    #21…yeah, then all that's left is puffy empty tomato flavored dough product. That gives me indigestion every time.

    • darsh

      still had pizza rolls

  • Chiefhenry27


  • tv_paul

    All excellent, but #4 every god damn day this happens .

    • Dubs

      Don't want to part with the $5 for sheet straps?

      • tv_paul

        Tried it and the damn thing pop off too. I think a nail gun or dry wall screws are the next step.

    • Evil Dung Beetle

      I use a safety pin in each corner, works like a charm. Cheaper than unitasking sheet straps too.

    • Boom!_Headshot!

      doesnt matter, looks like i had sex

  • Blame_anxiety

    #16 is even worse when the video is playing while it is still "buffering"

    • simtafa

      I'm so dumb. I literally refreshed the page to see the video. That's fucking annoying.

  • Martin_McFly

    #6 Just remember, walk down the street, not across! Okay sugar?

    • Benjamin

      I made that mistake once. Lived to tell about it.

  • Alvey

    #4 Happens nightly…

  • Dunny_

    I would bet #8 happened while trying to take that paper seal off of #7.

  • LucretiusCarus

    #2 This is the worst. I hate finding backwards toilet paper. I'll actually switch it at other people's houses to be the right way. It's just wrong and evil.

    • littlet

      no way – this is the right way

      • Trolls

        You misspelled "etcrr is an ignorant cunt"

    • cinderelly

      Haha, I am the opposite. I turn the over tp to under wherever I go. 🙂

      • Joe

        I would literally murder you if you did that at my house

        • huh?

          I would just murder you. "Literally" is too serious, and sounds messy.

    • NOLA

      I was going to ask what was wrong with the toilet paper. Now if they showef the very begining of the roll when you cannot start on rolling it without ripping several layers of sheets off at once, I would have understood.

      • huh?

        …or when you sit down to poop and a few logs have dropped and you realize there's no tp.

        • https://www.facebook.com/charlene.lopez.73 Charlene Lopez

          then you walk with your pants down your leggs dripping whatever to where the TP is stored!! hahahahahahahahahah LMAO!!!!!!!

    • woosa

      i think the pic is showing that there's not enough room between the wall and the hook to fit the roll. which is worse than the over/under debate.

      • Dave

        you're a fucking idiot then.

        • shitfaced

          Don't know why the down thumbs. Best possible response to an asinine post.

          • mittenz

            Thumbs up for Dave.

            • MHDGC

              is that you, Mitch?

      • stonewall_79

        You're right the paper can't roll nice observation man.

      • thatguy

        Actually, I think it's to show how annoying/difficult it is to tear a piece of toilet paper with one hand because your other hands too busy taking a picture of you shitting.

        • JHL1

          Really it's because there's no boobs in the pic. That's the annoying thing.

    • Shabooms

      I just learned that was a pain for others like 2 years ago…but then again I do what i want so…

    • OhSomeEvil

      people who don't have proper toilet etiquette… just want to see the world burn

    • Jamesb91

      Lol@thinking its cuz it's backwards…

    • Cowboy1354

      That's how I "roll"

    • The other white meat

      I prefer over but switch it to under at any chance I get just to be an ass.

    • https://www.facebook.com/charlene.lopez.73 Charlene Lopez

      am i living in an alternate universe?? This is how it should be not over the top!!!

  • BabyFart Magizax

    #3 and #4 hate it when both happen. And they always do

    • Jandro

      #3 goes in the trash if that happens – cant deal with it

  • Salmonpack

    Chive, you forgot #26: The shitty new ads you've put on your mobile site. I don't give a shit about Justin bieber's paternity test. I'm certainly not happy about it getting in the way of getting my chive on

    • Lil John

      firefox + adblocker

      I only see the ads they code into the sidebar, and those are rare.

      • All ye faithful

        Mobile site genius… I'm a Firefox user myself and still can't get over how sanctimonious some other users are. Still not as bad as Chrome users though… You'd think Google leared how to turn water into wine they way the faithful go on.

    • Mike D

      where is this happening? I checked out the mobile site on my phone and saw no such thing. I want to see what everyone is bitching about.

      • Salmonpack

        Very bottom of the screen. Lame ad stays at the bottom of the screen as you scroll/try to keep calm, eating up valuable pixels on my wee phone screen

    • daniel

      thats right. its like a fuckin fly hovering over me when im eating.

    • organix85

      I'm usually chiving from my desktop, but I'll thumbs up all you mobile users frustration. Ads seriously suck.

    • Smokin Lamb

      to bad I can only like this once. At first i was like "What the fuck is this pop up shit? WTF is wrong with my cell?" Then I realized it was just a shitty ad in front of everything. Chive, everything you do is cool, why this pop up shit to blemish your record? Not cool.

    • Lips

      Ads are necessary, and it could accept these, except they scroll up the screen when i slide the screen up to see more.

    • Trav1121

      It is fucking annoying. Even as I am typing this message, it is glitching the shit outta everything: not allowing backspacing, shooting me back to the top of the post, lagging the text, glitching the photos if I hold the photo horizontally (as I prefer), the ad covers up the text. It has basically fucked the whole mobile usage for me. This site is supposed to be fun and entertaining, not an annoying pain in the fucking ass. As you can tell, I am beyond frustrated with this issue that doesn't seem to be being addressed. 😡

  • labatanga

    nothing pisses me off more.

    • JHL1

      You've had a hard time? I've been here five years, they only hung me the right way up yesterday.

  • Cam

    Didn't I just read this on buzzfeed?

    • Lil John

      There were two added but yes, I did too. That's the breaks when you hit aggregate sites exclusively.

      • lex

        I saw it in 9gag yesterday.

        • JHL1

          I saw it on a stone tablet 4000 years ago.

    • Toby

      Then go back to buzzfeed.

      • thom

        Your guys' posts whining about seeing this stuff on other sites should be their own Things That Annoy gallery.

  • Corey

    #23 looks like conjunctivitis.

    • rider22x

      Heavy on the JUNC! Gross!

    • Master_Rahl

      Pinkeye, you know, like what zombified most of South Park. Always separate your embalming fluid and Worcestershire sauce.

  • Jamie

    First world problems !!!

  • Picard_

    #1 Fucking wall warts!

  • ddd

    #10 that shit was staged, too perfect a triangle

    • LucretiusCarus

      And I think maybe the multi-variable calculus is way more annoying than the tear. But that's just me.

    • aaa

      forget that. wtf kinda math is that?

      • https://www.facebook.com/Justin.Konecsni Justin 'Gus' Konecsni

        That would be triple integrals. For us engineering students, they're a daily thing to see.

        • Urethra Franklin

          Say that again…but Sexier this time!

      • Spartacus

        Using calculus to integrate in 3 dimensions, typically calculus 3 in almost all college curricula.

        • Johnny K.

          The "battery at less than 20%" message should have definitely made the list. You nerds should get back to inventing an iPhone battery that lasts longer than 4 hours; with all your fancy math and college words…

          Ahh, just kidding! You guys are alright… And thanks again for yoga pants… I figure it must have been a man with an engineering degree to come up with that gem!

    • Buckeye

      That actually isn't a perfect triangle, and if you look close you can see it's jagged.

      • JHL1

        He can tell by the pixels.

    • Amigo

      haha yeah, there was no way he coulda pulled that off without staging it

  • YOYO

    #9 just open a new tube dumbass

    • Buckeye

      Don't want to waste any toothpaste, some people are cheap

      • jeff donuts

        thats me

    • Trashcan Willie

      Looks like we've got a 1% on our hands here. Just kidding. Seriously though, I'm poor.

    • Cin

      …or just learn how to use a toothpaste tube by now!

      • JBinNC

        yeah, the most annoying part of this picture is how disgusting the end of that tube is. I hate it when I go to someones house and I see this sort of mess on a tube of toothpaste.

        • pigs

          There's a god damned top on the tube and still all that filth.

          • mittenz

            x2. People who handle the paste like that probably eat it, too.

    • SadeShadz

      Fact is it happens! -_-

    • ghostwheel

      Easy Solution: Just take a pair of scissors and cut the tube open. You'd be surprised how many more weeks it'd last. And it isn't about saving – it's just a form of laziness. Like going through all your clothes before you do a load of laundry…
