Everyone seems to have at least one thing that really ruffles their feathers. Whether it's chewing really loudly or maybe never having seen the sow Survivor, there are plenty of pet peeves out there. Redditor u/FunWithAPorpoise asked: "What's the smallest hill you'll die on?" and the responses are oddly specific.

    Not Returning A Shopping Cart

    From Redditor u/Stock_Intern_7450:

    Returning a shopping cart is not that hard. It's the least you can do when utilizing a service.

    From Redditor u/Generallybadadvice:

    Also a great moral test.

    From Redditor u/sniffboy:

    Another moral test that I find surprisingly a lot of people fail is cleaning up behind yourself at a cinema. Like, just pick up your popcorn bag and your cup. They’re even holding the trash open for you at the exit. Why make their job harder when there is literally no time or effort cost to you? Ugh, it kills me.

    Using Speaker Phone In Public

    From Redditor u/omgimfauxreal:

    Speaker phone is not meant for using in public.

    From Redditor u/FlyingPS4Controller:

    If someone is on speaker you have full right to come into the conversation.

    From Redditor u/__mr_snrub__:

    Similar hill, speakers are not meant to be used on hikes/nature. Listen to your bad music at home.

    Carpet Flooring In Bathrooms

    From Redditor u/Cherie_Bee_:

    Carpet flooring in bathrooms trigger me :/ just don’t put a carpet in a bathroom. A bath mat is fine so you don’t slip when you get out the shower but not the whole carpet floor.

    From Redditor u/Asleep_Cut505:

    This...exists?? Who in their right mind would put carpet in a bathroom.

    From Redditor u/BrotherFingerYou:

    It was a trend in like the 70s that some people kept because it keeps their feet warm... its wrong. Very wrong. Use a mat and wash it regularly.

    'Frozen' Isn't A Christmas Movie

    From Redditor u/Autumn1eaves:

    Frozen isn’t a Christmas or even a winter movie. It is literally set in the summer, a big part of the plot is that everyone was unprepared for the summer freeze. I will die on this hill.

    From Redditor u/jermification101:

    Also, despite merchandise for her being marketed 10:1, Elsa is not the main character/protagonist of the movie, Anna is the main character too.

    From Redditor u/SteveEndureFort:

    Also Frozen 2 is a fall movie.

    Tall Burgers Nullify The Benefit Of Burgers

    From Redditor u/Javanz:

    Tall burgers completely nullify all the benefits of burgers, and are an abomination unto cuisine. A good burger is the perfect portable food. It should be edible using only your hands and mouth, without cutlery, and without making too much mess. You should also be able to sample every layer of ingredient in one bite, without dislocating your jaw.

    From Redditor u/FOLOFFAL:

    Never understood why people went tall with burger creation. If you want a bigger burger go wider.

    From Redditor u/mr_remy:

    Amen. Build it WIDER, not TALLER.

    Holding Doors Etiquette

    From Redditor u/IglooRaves:

    If you (person A) pull open a door and someone (person B) is wanting to come through from the other side, HOLD THE DOOR AND LET THEM THROUGH. Similarly, if you are the other person, don't dilly-dally, WALK THROUGH. Because the alternative is person A awkwardly trying to pass through whilst struggling to maintain holding the door open, leaving person B waiting awkwardly for them to finish. Happens a lot at my office in the corridors and it does my head in.

    From Redditor u/dodexahedron:

    Similarly, let people EXIT the elevator first, before you get in and, if you're by the doors and it stops at a floor that isn't yours, step aside because someone needs to get on or off.
