My wife occasionally wakes up mad at me based on something I did to her in her dreams.
I had a teacher get mad at me because I sneezed during a test.
A woman I had never met or seen in my life, at a public event, asked me where her kids were. I was confused and said “I’m sorry, I don’t know.” And she yelled and asked where they put them. She stormed off angry at me. I never had a clue why she asked me.
My husband and I went on a 5th year anniversary trip. TWO people were mad at us for not inviting them. His brother was one of them. Those same 2 people were mad because we went on our honeymoon and didn’t invite them.
Me and my siblings used to get mad at each other for “Staring out of each others windows” on car rides. It sucked for the middle seater.
A woman screamed at me because I wouldn’t return a heavily used toaster she purchased 5 years ago at a store that doesn’t even exist in my country. I don’t even work at a place that sells toasters.
I got death threats at work when I wouldn’t accept “a box of reptiles” as payment for an electric guitar.
The guy was later banned from the mall after trying to steal shoes from a mannequin.
“That kid stole my phone”
I met him once. At my house. At a party I threw. He lost his phone.
In his eyes, that meant I stole his phone.
Although when he told his friend that I stole his phone, he did it by TEXTING HIM USING THE PHONE HE CLAIMED I STOLE.
My sister got mad at me for helping my niece (her daughter) and my niece’s infant son move out of the house she was giving up to the bank. My sister wanted them to move into a trailer parked at her house but my niece found a really good house sharing situation.
My sister hasn’t spoken to me since and told mutual relations/friends that if they talked to me she would not speak to them either. She’s a control freak.
I work at one of the world’s busiest theme parks and today a guest screamed at me because I wouldn’t let their toddler on a rollercoaster that they would -literally – fall out of.
Then, she continued to tug on my shirt and asked what I would give her for compensation, when I tried to give her a pass to enter another ride she got even angrier and demanded I give her one to a brand new ride that just opened and had a 7 hour queue. I explained I couldn’t, because those tickets don’t even exist. She got in my face, screamed again, and demanded I give her tickets to our competitors park. After explaining I couldn’t, because our company doesn’t own that park, she asked me what time I was finished work and told me she’d find me in the parking lot.
All this because I wouldn’t let her toddler go on a ride they would’ve slipped out of.
Someone got mad at me because I didn’t get mad when I lost a game.
Ex GF and I were both sick. I was napping while she was studying (this was back in college). I wake up and she is giving me the silent treatment (her method of being upset with me). Apparently I somehow offended her while I was asleep? Ridiculous. I later found out that she had came over to me while I slept and blew her nose or coughed and I did not wake up or show concern….
This total stranger at the bus stop…He sneezed and I said “bless you”. He replied angrily “That wasn’t a sneeze, it was a cough!” I said “Sorry, I thought it was a sneeze”, and he yelled “Well it wasn’t!” He was angry out of all proportion.
Teacher threw me out of class in high school when I answered a question correctly after she thought I was sleeping in class. Still bothers me to this day.
I didn’t put a 🙂 at the end of a goodnight text.
Watching Final Destination 3 with my ex, me hugging her, her head on my chest, and the scene with the girls dying in the tanning beds comes on. They are naked, and my ex lifted her head up, and punched me, and then moved away from me.
I asked what was that for, and apparently my heart had sped up at the naked girls on screen. I didn’t have the heart to apologize for my autonomic functions.
Coworker was angry with me because I called in sick from work. She wouldn’t talk to me for 2 days so I finally asked what her problem was.
She said “Well I was feeling really sick and was going to call off too but didn’t and I never take a day off sick so it’s kind of unfair that you did”
My sister got mad at me for pointing out she stole from an orphanage.
Apparently I made the fact that she stole from an orphanage “sound bad”.
My mom got mad at me because I couldn’t find ‘the thing’ on ‘that thing’. That’s what she said exactly.
I moved a book that was on my best friends desk in 6th grade. Just nudged it a little. She didn’t talk to me for 6 whole months.
Years & years ago I was standing in line with a friend, getting some awful fast food. For context I am White & my friend is of Chinese descent. We live in Canada. End of context.
So we were waiting in line when a very animated Asian lady starts talking to my friend in her native language. While my friend understands the Chinese dialect that her family speaks, she doesn’t understand this woman & tells her so.
You would have thought that we had just stabbed her. The lady starts screaming in English that my friend was a disgrace to her people & that I was the devil-girl influencing her away from her people. It was bad enough that the manager asked her to leave. I have never understood that one…
One time my grandpa legitimately threw a fit because I “slept in” till 8 am on a Saturday.
I’m a referee at youth soccer games. This one time, a coach almost ran into the field fuming because I called for a foul of one of their players.
The foul was a tackle from the back with two stretched-out legs.
Coach’s argument? The person who got tackled was a girl.
One of my bridesmaids is mad at me because she is going to my wedding instead of The Weeknd concert… so there’s that.
My wife, while pregnant, once threw me out of the house and didn’t let me back in until the next morning, because she thought I was using too much water while washing the dishes.
Had a friend who got mad at me because she thought I liked her baby more than I liked her.
For buying him a video game at full price.
My grandmother got angry at me and told me that I was a stupid spoiled brat of a child because I didn’t want to go mother’s day shopping with her to get a gift for my mom because I had already made plans to do that with my dad the next day.
My mom randomly texted me at work and asked if I had Amazon prime. I said yeah. She asked for my username and password. I said no, I don’t give anybody any of my credentials as a matter of personal security, but I’ll be happy to order whatever for you. She got really mad and said that I was being “disrespectful” and couldn’t believe that “I didn’t trust her”. Wouldn’t talk to me or even look at me for a few days. She got over it. She’s otherwise totally normal.
