20+ People Share the Subtle Signs That Someone is an A-Hole

If someone is snapping their fingers at waitstaff, shouting down a customer service rep, or abusing a stranger—they're an a-hole—absolutely no question about it; by acting in this way, they have broadcast their character loud and clear to the rest of us.

'AITA?' Cyclist wonders if they're wrong for blocking traffic in snowy conditions and drawing the rage of drivers

This cyclist posted to Reddit's AITA subreddit in order to see whether or not they were in the wrong for riding in the road instead of in a snowy cycle lane.

There's just something about being mildly inconvenienced while driving that provokes unbridled rage in our minds; it's really diff…

'AITA for not letting my sister's boyfriend use hot sauce?': Boyfriend storms out when Italian family forbids usage of hot sauce

People can get weirdly cult-like over the way they like their food, and it's one of the smallest hills people are consistently willing to die on; there are so many people that have overly strong opinions about and will gatekeep what topping or sauce you should or shouldn't eat on any given food. So what if you like ketchup on eggs? Or hot sauce on Italian food? If you wanna pile mayonnaise and dijon mustard on your linguine, then you go right ahead.
