WhatsApp is habit-forming. It is also infuriating! Facebook-owned WhatsApp has a huge user base in India. In fact, a smartphone user without WhatsApp may be a rarity nowadays. With over 1.3 billion monthly active users and 55 billion messages sent per day, WhatsApp is one of the widely used social messaging apps. And yet, on a daily basis, users go through at least a couple of instances where they want to kick the app off their smartphones. No, there is nothing wrong with WhatsApp per se, what we are spotlighting is the annoying posts that drive us wild with rage. And, problem is, WhatsApp is making changes regularly that provide further ammunition to people to bother you with.

Most recently, WhatsApp has rolled out stickers for its users and is also planning to bring in more interactive, eye-ball grabbing features in the coming days. While there are all kinds of people using the app, here are the five most ridiculous things that people do on WhatsApp:

WhatsApp Hide and Seek

WhatsApp Hide and Seek

Everyone has at least one WhatsApp contact who loves to play hide and seek. They will go offline as soon as they message you. You either end up waiting for them to come online or may only wonder - why did they message, when they don't intend to chat. (Reuters)

WhatsApp Audio/Video Call

WhatsApp Audio/Video Call

Here they are! Again! They will call you on WhatsApp at the time when you are offline and then they will accuse you of not picking their calls. Why don't they understand that WhatsApp doesn't notify a call or message when mobile data is off? Hey, WhatsApp, you listening? An urgent update required here.

WhatsApp Status

WhatsApp Status

You may call these people as the most annoying in your list. They remain online and don't respond to your message for long, no matter how important it may be. If we can clearly see your status that you are online, then why can't you respond to our messages? (Reuters)

The 'Impatient' WhatsApp user

The 'Impatient' WhatsApp user

Some people on WhatsApp appear so impatient that they cannot even wait to type out a full, meaningful, sentence. They will break their sentence in four or more parts so you get a notification not for one but for four messages. Isn't that annoying? (Reuters)

Many people love to have their kid/dog/favourite cartoon or some sacred symbol or some god's image as their DP (Display Picture). How do expect us to identify you on a new WhatsApp group chat?
