Facebook groups were game changers for many people out there who found a sense of belonging and made friends, who looked for a place to vent or share their passion, or simply wanted a hassle-free corner to sell or buy things. Today, there are countless Facebook groups out there, from very peculiar ones to solely practical ones, to the ones that combine both.

This Facebook group known as “Angry People in Local Facebook Groups” took a good look at all these groups and realized that just as Facebook has given a voice to people who needed one, so it has given a voice to those who not just speak but scream, aka angry people.

“Facebook has given a voice to local communities across the world, communities which previously had no voice and in hindsight probably shouldn't have been given one,” reads the description of the group, which is home to a whopping 55.6K members. We wrapped up some of the most entertaining posts below, so scroll down!

I hooted at a car because it didn’t have its lights on and it was nighttime. I wanted to warn him because of the danger. The driver flipped me the bird and shouted that I was a stupid c*nt.

To find out more about the community behind the “Angry People in Local Facebook Groups" Facebook group, Bored Panda reached out to its creator Steph Bobby Doyle, who said that she doesn’t take things very seriously and tends to find it quite amusing when other people do.

“I’m an active user of social media and member of a few local Facebook groups and just found some of the posts people were sharing really funny. On the one hand, social media gives us access to events happening on a global scale, but people still use it to moan about the tiny things happening on their own street,” Doyle told us.“

I follow the page Angry People in Local Newspapers and couldn’t believe there wasn’t an Angry People in Local Facebook Groups, so I made my own,” Doyle recounted the origins of her group.

When asked why so many people vent out their frustrations on online groups, Doyle believes that people just like to vent. “Most members are British and we are famed for being very polite. Whilst we might not yell at someone in the street to pick up after their dog, we're happy to angrily post about it IN ALL CAPS on Facebook,” the creator of “Angry People in Local Facebook Groups" explained.

When it comes to the members of this group, Doyle thinks that just like her, most members look on the lighter side of life and are able to find humor in things and poke fun. “However, sometimes a post might spark some debate and I will see members commenting things that I think would fit well into an Angry People in Angry People in Local Facebook Groups group.”

I have many fond memories because the 1984 Olympics in L.A. Because of the time difference most of the main events were late in the evening or in the middle of the night, but I managed to talk my parents into giving me permission to stay up late to watch. Did fall asleep during the closing ceremony, but still

As for the content that gets shared on “Angry People in Local Facebook Groups," Doyle tries to only share posts that are genuinely funny and doesn't approve anything that's mean-spirited.

“There will be times when there will be a lot of post submissions about the same sort of thing so I'll try to pick the funniest ones. There was 1 week when I felt a bit green around the gills after looking through dozens of posts which included photos of dog poop so I do try not to share too many of those!”

Although Doyle said she hasn’t really thought about where the group is headed, she has a good idea of what the local people of Facebook want. “So maybe one day I'll stand for local election to eliminate the phantom dog poopers, bad parkers and noisy neighbors of the world!” she concluded.

It’s only human to feel a vast array of emotions, from sadness to anger, from happiness to anxiety. Anger, however, is something we should not be proud of, yet it comes and meets us quite often. Charles Spielberger, PhD, a psychologist who specializes in the study of anger, argues that anger is “an emotional state that varies in intensity from mild irritation to intense fury and rage.”

And just like other strong emotions, anger is not just in your mind. In fact, it is often accompanied by physiological and biological changes which mean that when you get angry, your heart rate and blood pressure go up, as do the levels of your energy hormones, adrenaline, and noradrenaline.

Well, if the only reason you deleted them was so you could make this joke, I kind of see their point.

And while most of us get intense bursts of anger when things go against the plan, think of a canceled flight or an unpleasant comment from your coworker, some people control it better than others.

According to Jerry Deffenbacher, PhD, a psychologist who specializes in anger management, some people really are more “hotheaded” than others are; they get angry more easily and more intensely than the average person does. There are also those who don’t show their anger in loud spectacular ways but are chronically irritable and grumpy. Easily angered people don’t always curse and throw things; sometimes they withdraw socially, sulk, or get physically ill.

Report them. In the UK deliberately splashing a pedestrian with a puddle by driving through it fast enough to cause a splash is actually driving without due cause and attention and is ILLEGAL. He could be fined for it, or points on his licence.

Psychologists argue that people who get angry easily have a low tolerance for frustration. They can’t take things in stride, and they’re particularly infuriated if the situation seems somehow unjust: for example, being corrected for a minor mistake. This can be caused by past trauma, or be inherited genetically.

In fact, anger management is a skill that is learned as part of fluid communication when a child is growing up. So it’s no wonder that typically, people who are easily angered come from families that are disruptive, chaotic, and not skilled at emotional communication.

What? This person won’t take their daughter to the movies because they don’t accept cash? Is that what this means? They think “Hollywood” determines how their local cinema accepts payment?

Helicopters here (NL) are usually not a good sign: Trauma victims, or police in pursuit... Both are okay to make 'noise'. Especially the yellow trauma ones, they can make all the noise they want imho...
