Most people want to be kind and caring individuals. However, sometimes you come upon people who do things that make it really hard to be an accepting person. Even worse, you occasionally date those terribly annoying people. 

It might be petty, but you may have heard, "all's fair in love and war." If you can't deal with the way your companion cups coffee mugs with two hands and smack their lips, that's fair. It's petty and breaking things off over it might make you feel bad, but it's fair. 

Thankfully, you're not alone. A recent Reddit thread has people sharing the petty reasons that have pushed them over the edge, forcing them to end a relationship. It's a hilarious and cathartic thread that will probably make you feel better about breaking up with someone because they wear toe shoes. 

Grammar matters. So does knowing the difference between an outfit and an alphet, which is not a thing. 

@Buffysumers's complaint isn't that uncommon.

Having mutual interests is important. 

Poor fashion choices will get you cast aside by many in this thread. 

Listen to Kurt Vonnegut. "There's only one rule that I know of, babies—God damn it, you've got to be kind."

On the other hand, he also said, "Those who believe in telekinetics, raise my hand." It's not a great line to try on a first date.
