A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

I'm sure you can all relate and figure this one out in some way or another, ha ha. Ever have somebody cut you off in traffic? Or somebody who came in to your work was rude to you? Or do people ignore you, or talk badly of you? It's infuriating, right? It is frustrating how many people are ignorant. But then again, it may be just me. Everybody gets irritated with people sometimes though, I think you can all relate to this story.
