Things That Exist Almost Exclusively to Piss People Off

Here are some minor things that seemingly have no upside, and feel like they exist just to make someone angry. Like, who's reading the entire story about someone's vacation in Italy? I just wanna learn how to make pasta sauce. There are a lot of nice things about life, but it's also full of misfortune that intrudes on people's lives as well as manipulative and horrible products.

Deceptive and Terrible Products and Services Designed By Jerks

The world is rife with manipulative and awful products and ads, and it's worth it to point them out when they're clearly unfair. There's wildly misleading labels, sandwiches made to look like they're twice as big as they actually are, and apps that make you pay money to delete them, just to name a few. It makes you start to think this stuff could be designed by the devil.

Disappointing Purchases People Made After Being Misled By Ads

We've all gone crazy at some point for those ads for laser tag games and frozen drink makers, and many of us never learn and keep making stupid purchases far into our adult years. That said, this isn't always our fault, sometimes products are straight up misleading and manipulative.

Stuff Rich People Buy That Everyone Else Hardly Even Thinks About

Some of the stuff rich people can afford feels like it should be hugely illegal, but some of the other stuff they can afford seems like only something a complete idiot would buy. Who needs a hand carved, perfectly cube shaped ice cube? This stuff must feel like a wicked insult to anyone who realized they grew up poor, and probably results in some really terrible rich kid syndrome.
