Things that affect me emotionally long after the incident has passed:

1. Leaving the ice cream on the kitchen counter having forgotten to scoop myself a bowl, first.

2. Shouting something obnoxious at someone far away because you think you know them, but you don't.

3. Oversimplification and/or bad analogies to the point of completely killing the original lesson. Really, nothing is that simple. Specialization is not just for ants.

4. When someone turns a corner and screams and brings their knee up to guard him/herself from my dog for the sole reason that she is a dog, causing the dog to bark in surprise/fear and look like she's trying to attack them.
