As human beings, there are just some things that seem to bring us all together with the same sense of irritation. Here are a few of those annoying things that make my list. I'm sure at least some, if not most, of them make yours as well. If you can think of any more relatable annoyances that I've missed, feel free to comment on this article and let me know!

1. Realizing there's no more toilet paper when it's already too late.

...Happens to the best of us.

...I imagine beating you over the head every time I hear you chomp down on that chip!

5. When it's really quiet in a room and you hear that one person breathing like they just ran a marathon.

...Or maybe you just ran up two flights of stairs to get to class, we'll never know.

6. Grabbing a chocolate chip cookie, only to realize it's actually oatmeal raisin.

...Unless you actually like oatmeal raisin, then it's a win-win.
