What does it take to get you annoyed? For some people, the answer is not much, and they find themselves in a constant state of low-level irritation where even the smallest thing can set them off.
This is especially true for the easily annoyed zodiac signs, who can be set off by even a slightly off-kilter horoscope. And for those who follow astrology, there are some things they may not like to hear.
If you get agitated by the littlest things, your stress levels are going to rise and you’re going to find yourself blowing up all the time. It’s challenging to be around someone who is always irritated because the last thing you want to do is annoy them further.
Because many of our characteristics are influenced by our zodiac signs, it’s not surprising that certain signs are more likely to be chill by the little annoyances of life, while others can’t contain their constant state of annoyance.
If you’re someone who gets annoyed at everything, try to take a deep breath before you react. Do things that will help you deal and not cause you to go off the rails at the slightest inconvenience or annoyance.
So, who are the most easily annoyed zodiac signs, and what sets them off?
1. TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus get annoyed when things don’t go their way or something unexpected happens. They aren’t a sign who just brushes it off and moves on. They think about things, and the more they think the more annoyed they get until they’re seething on the inside.
They tend to keep their annoyances to themselves until they can’t take it anymore, and then they blow up. When a Taurus hasn’t had enough sleep, they get even more annoyed.
2. VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
There are many many things that annoy Virgo: the sound of chewing, someone mispronouncing their name, when things aren’t returned back to their proper place, people not using their turn signals, getting blamed for something they didn’t do, people who are full of themselves, flaky people, people who do walk too slowly, and so on.
Virgos hold themselves up to an impossible standard, so why can’t everyone else do the same? More annoyances include Zodiac lists that Virgos aren’t on, people without follow-through, and those who don’t care about humanity.
3. SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpios get annoyed when people are deliberately stupid. The kind of people who play dumb for attention or who are just too lazy to find out something for themselves. Scorpios are very independent and they don’t understand someone being passive on purpose.
Scorpios don’t like lies or liars, and while a little white lie might not make them angry, it will annoy them. Scorpios don’t suffer fools, they just get so annoyed they try to forget that they’re even around.
4. CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorns get annoyed when they’re in work mode and people are joking around. Capricorns know the importance of letting off steam, but there is a time and a place for everything. When a big project is due, or you have to make an important presentation, that’s not the time for a practical joke.
They also can’t stand to be the butt of a joke or made fun off. This will annoy and anger them. It’s not that they don’t have a sense of humor, they just take themselves quite seriously.
5. ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
When people are too slow or think about things for too long before they do them, this will annoy Aries. They do everything as quickly as possible — and that includes making decisions. They just don’t understand why it takes others so incredibly long to decide.
Aries has places to go and experiences to have, and if you delay them in any way, you’re going to annoy the crap out of them. Patience is not something that these individuals have in abundance.
6. LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
Libras get annoyed by people who act like they’re superior to Libra or who pretend to be more important than they are. They find snotty people extremely annoying to the point where sometimes they may try to take that person down a notch or two. Just act like a normal human being!
Libras also get annoyed with unkind people and people who are indifferent about what’s happening in the world. Social media often annoys them and they can be fierce when it comes to deleting people.
