I have a theory that it's really about the significant grievances we all endure, but for some reason can't give ourselves permission to whine about. Issues like hating ones job, having a significant health problem, physical pain, death of a loved one, etc. I think some of us are using these subscription boxes as a way to distract ourselves from our real problems, so when something goes wrong with them, there is displaced emotional reaction. Not saying that describes anyone specifically, just speaking for myself, I find myself sometimes getting mad about something stupid, then realizing I am genuinely mad about something else that I am trying to "be brave" about.
