10 Things Hangry People Do (PHOTOS)


It never fails -- while running errands with someone I love, we'll stay out half an hour too long. I've probably had coffee and not enough breakfast. There is an outside chance I stayed out too late the night before. My mind is racing, only thinking about how many seconds are left until we get to eat food. My loved one will ask me a question, I will snap at them and they will look at me the way you look at a toddler who is ready for nap time, "Oh, do you need to eat?"

This used to inspire even more hungry rage, but now I realize that they are right. I am just a hangry person. Hanger, for the unacquainted, is the emotion where hunger and anger intersect, and it is a lonely, terrifying place. There are lots of reasons we get hangry, but for most of us, the result is the same. Us hangry folk, like The Incredible Hulk, never mean what we do or say while in the heat of a hanger attack, but our barbs can sting nevertheless. There's even a hangry pillow now, if you feel like accessorizing your hanger. If you think you or someone you know might be a hangry person take a look at this and let me know if it feels familiar.

Still not sure? Don't worry, we compiled a list of things hangry people do, from the self-admitted hangry ones amongst us.
