Being a woman means that you have to compete with small annoyances every single day and boy will it drive you crazy! Don’t get me wrong here, I’m not talking about big infuriating things that you have every right to be seriously annoyed at, I’m talking about little everyday irritations that you have to deal with just because you’re a woman. We’re going to look at 24 of these annoying little things that band together to make every woman’s life that little bit more frustrating!
1. Wearing that one comfy bra every day
It doesn’t matter how many bras you own, you’ll only wear one regularly and that’s because it’s sooo much comfier than every other bra in your underwear drawer. Sure it gets gross, but it’s worth it for comfort.
2. Having to have tactics for dealing with creeps when you go out
There’s three hungover girls on the table next to me, dissecting last night. From what I can gather, they have a communal PAYG phone whose number they give to creeps, and then laugh at all the thirsty messages later. I wish I had the authority to award them the Nobel prize.

You and your friends have a game plan for when you go out, because creeps lurk everywhere and you know that you’re sadly going to have to deal with at least one every time you go out on the town.
3. Jeans shopping. Need I say more?
The emotional trauma of trying to find a pair of jeans that fits both your butt and your waist is enough to make us wait until our jeans fall apart before going shopping again.
4. Squeezing into a pair of skinny jeans and getting stuck
I was determined to fit into these jeans and now I think I will be stuck inside of them for the rest of my life.
5. Trying to make sure that you can move in the jeans you’re trying on

If anyone looked behind the curtain of my changing room they’d be in for a serious surprise and not in a good way.
6. Your tights will never stay in one piece
Every pair of tights I’ve ever owned has ripped or laddered within a few hours of me putting them on and it drives me crazy!
7. Waxing is always a trip
Eyebrow lady: moustache too?
Me: I just came out to have a good time and I honestly feel so attacked RN

Did I bring your moustache into this? No? Then leave mine out of it, please!
8. When nothing you know has pockets
“I love your outfit!”
Thanks! It has pockets! 😊 pic.twitter.com/nhWRilMNy6

How come everything a man buys has pockets when we ladies never get any pockets at all? Or even worse, fake pockets that you can’t actually use! Although it must be said that there is nothing in the world that makes me happier than discovering that something I bought has pockets, it feels magical!
9. RIP all of the underwear you’ve ever bled through
So many great pairs of pants lost before their time, victims of a surprise period that arrived just a little too early for you to catch.
10. Having to deal with everything being pink
Really happy they labelled which toothbrush covers are for men so I don’t accidentally kill my husband, who is allergic to colours. pic.twitter.com/cTjFFkuBC3

You know what? I don’t even like pink! And why do these toothbrush covers need to be gendered anyway? It’s just stupid!
11. Hair in the shower drain.
Need I say more?
12. Having to give your partner really specific instructions when they pick something up from the store.
Didn’t have time to go into town, so drew a circle on Ryan’s hand so he could buy me the correct size of hoop earrings 🌚😂 pic.twitter.com/FQCklF1PYa

Because if you’re not specific, you know that they’ll come home with the exact opposite of what you actually wanted.
13. Your boobs can’t be trusted to behave
If your boobs get the opportunity to try to jump out of your bra, you know that they’re going to take that chance and run with it. Just behave, will ya?
14. Instantly regretting that low ponytail
other girls wearing low ponytails: smart, classy, professional, beautiful
me wearing a low ponytail: will turner in pirates of the caribbean
— K T 🌹 (@kxthleen) January 3, 2018
How come other people look so classy in a low ponytail and I just look like an extra in Hamilton?
15. Being told that you’re ‘cute.’
You wanna see cute? Come over here and I’ll show you who’s freakin’ cute!
16. Bra straps
Come on, you know I’m wearing a bra, why do you care if my bra strap is showing? Just leave it alone!
17. When certain songs inspire a reaction in you no matter where you are or what time it is
If Shania Twain saying “let’s go girls” doesn’t flip some internal switch in you, you’re lying.
— Morgan Littlebear (@__meowgan) July 22, 2017
If you can stay still when you hear the opening bars of ‘Man, I feel like a woman’ there is something wrong with you.
18. The crotch of your tights will never actually stay up around your crotch
That’s footage of me talking to my tights after I’ve pulled them up for the 50th time in the space of an hour.
19. Being told to sit like a lady
YOU sit like a lady, I’m quite happy as I am, thanks!
20. Trying to go to the bathroom in a bodysuit
Noooo but a bodysuit/playsuit is any drunk girls toilet nightmare 😩
— Honor🥑 (@HonorDanns) November 15, 2017
I think I’ll just hold it in until I’m dead, thanks.
21. Having multiple chapsticks at all times
I lost my car chapstick and now my book bag chapstick is in my room and my room chapstick is in my car and my whole life’s outta wack
— ✧ dbreezy ✧ (@DanielleBreeden) February 18, 2018
Well come on, who wants to have to deal with chapped lips? Not me!
22. Ads that make removing your makeup look like it doesn’t take ten years and a lot of scrubbing
You really think any make up is getting removed from just a little splash of water on my face? You are wrong. Dead wrong.
23. Toe hair
I thought I’d shaved everywhere, but my it looks like my toes escaped. Again.
24. When your pubic hair pokes through your underwear.
Yep. Always a good time.
