What are some anger triggers for teens?

We all have buttons that when pushed lead to anger. Some people call these buttons "pet peeves" or "triggers." No matter what you call them, as a teen it's important that you identify the things that bug you and head them off before your anger builds. Here are some examples of things others do that may push your buttons:
  • Nag you
  • Tell others something you told them in confidence
  • Try to boss you around
  • Accuse you of something you didn't do
  • Invade your space
  • Accuse you of saying something you didn't say
  • Make repetitive noises
  • Borrow something of yours without permission
  • Borrow something of yours and ruin it
  • Write nasty things about you
  • Go through your things
