Subject: What/who really annoys you?

Written By: Tony20fan4ever on 06/17/04 at 8:42 pm

These things really get me ticked off:
People who go into AOL's NASCAR chatroom and say stupid UNTRUTHS about NASCAR fans....like we're all HILLBILLIES who live in trailer parks and do the sex act with our sisters,cousins,etc,and have inbred hillbilly kids..To those folks I say GET A LIFE!!

thong swimsuits on out of shape men and women

Those who flame people on the Net

Hackers who send nice little presents,such as worms and viruses,to me coz I tell AOL if they say rude things to me in chatrooms and message boards. No one is rude to me on Decades,I'm happy to say!

Athletes who:
Have a humongous ego(this means YOU,A-Rod,Shaq,Jeter,and BARRY BONDS!)
get away with felony crimes(That's dedicated to YOU,Jayson Williams,Allan Iverson,and Ray Lewis!)
Don't get that NO MEANS NO when they wanna get with a female(YEAH I MEAN YOU,KOBE BRYANT...among others
have a lust for blood and gore(Hey, TODD BERTRUZZI, watch your back!)

Leona Helmsley...who treated her employees like S***!
Ditto Martha Stewart!

The folks who wanted Dale Earnhardt's autopsy pix released to the public. As a fan of the #3,I think that's MAJOR DISRESPECT to him and his family...totally uncalled for.

There you go again, you couldn't go without another personal attack on people of faith.  Curious are you talking about ALL people of faith, or the extremists like Hamas and Islamic jihad.

--My personal hate (and I hope this doesn't start anything) are the left-wing extremists.  Open-society people who want secular things like: STRICT separtaion of church and state, legalization on drugs, public healthcare, banning firearms, legalization of gay marriage, and other stuff.  My personal qualms are with Michael Moore, George Soros, Al Franken, Jananne God-awful-o, Ralph Nader, Howard Dean, John Kerry, Hillary Clinton, Edward Kennedy, and Conan O'Brien.

And one sidenote (please don't respond here on this thread) i'm surprised that no one has mentioned ''under God'' staying in the U.S. pledge.

People who come onto our property (Jehovah's Witnesses, I suspect), leave the gate open, the dog escapes and I have to run down the street in my PJs and dressing gown.  All this while I'm feeling really crappy with a virus.  All they had to do was CLOSE the gate like the sign said!! >:(

I also hate it when daughter's Japanese teacher telephones to say she is going to be given an E- on her report because no assignments have been handed in!!  Teacher gets a bit uppity when I tell her I know the work has been done.  After asking her to check she rings back to say it was a clerical error!!  Daughter in fact is getting a B+. :)

I'm talking about people of any faith who are too blinkered to see when bits of their credo are provably wrong, and who keep on talking anyway.  Typically these would be Christain or Muslim.. though there are lots of both of those that I have a lot of time for, there's also a lot who use the Bible (or the Quran) instead of a brain, rather than using the brain that they presumably believe their God has provided them with.

And I couldn't have a list of things that annoy me without including them: religious bigotry probably annoys me about as much as all the others put together.

I'm OK with the Mormons.  Yeah their door-to-door ia a pain sometimes but hey, at least they are not out there selling drugs and stuff.

I was brought up by a Catholic mother and a Presbyterian father.  One day when the Mormons came to our door, my Dad said.  "Oh, you're here to sell religion?  We've already got an extra one here.  Know anybody who could use one?"  The Mormon visitors got a kick out of that and laughed.

I was involved with the mormons from 1974-1990...mind you I got to start on the basketball team if I joined so I did in 1976. I met many wonderful people while involved but ultimately they got VERY pushy about believing in good 'ol Joe Smith and his "Story"  ::) Anyway, I have retained a few and they are truly my friends because they don't push thier stuff on me and I respect thier choice as well...BTW...we finally won a basketball championship in 1990 and I retired from thier church :)

I totally agree with this one!  There's been major fights in my family over this.  ;D

I also can't stand it when people leave their shopping carts in the middle of the parking lot.  The carts are usually clumped together in a parking space that is close to the store and not in the cart return. 

Slow drivers

People who judge people by their weight.  Just because I'm vertically challenged doesn't mean I'm stupid.

While we are on the shopping cart and store theme...

People who walk beside the cart and pull it instead of pushing from behind (they take up more space and clog the aisles)  :D
People who hold up traffic in the lot by waiting for somebody else to pack their car and get out.  (When I see them waiting for me, after the car is packed I get in, turn on the radio, roll down the window, and SIT.  Then eventually when they give up, I immediately pull out.  ;D

Like Philbo, I don't like unsolicited dogma shoved at me.  Sometimes in comes from religious zeolots, other times it comes from VEGANS!  Christian zeolots preach about Jesus and hellfire, vegans preach about tofu and heart disease.  The net result is the same.
And I find it a little scary, GWB, that everybody on the Right has the same roster of left-wingers to hate.  I find it also scary that the names on the roster change depending on who Rush Limberger and the FOX scholars are ranking on.

I was once 'associated' with Jehovah's Witnesses. They are not that bad - a bit pedantic sometimes. Try not to treat them too cruelly (I'LL SEND FOR THE COPS!!!). They are as nervous cold-calling on people as you are angry seeing them at the doors. You can always say 'not interested' and they should take the hint and write DNC on their reports (meaning 'Do not call').  :)

Yes!  You must live in Georgia.  The cobb county police force along with Powder Springs police and paulding country are some of the stupidest, idiotic, annoying cops I have ever seen.  But they all look perfect when you compare them to the Georgia state patrol that has nothing better to do then give speeding tickets to people going 5 MPH over the limit and staking people out at the Georgia-Alabama state line for fireworks.

I've never been there, but I've heard Cobb doesn't have what you'd call a "hick" per capita income.  Although, the definition of "hick" is changing.  If the right-wing is trying to say that "elitism" has nothing to do with wealth, it only follows.

Well, I've lived in Cobb for 25 years now and I wouldn't call it "hick" nor would I call it "elite".  It's pretty much middle class and the county seat's (Marietta) population is over 1 million.

As opposed to people who throw nice cigarette butts all over the place!  We have a local mental case who picks up cigarette butts off the sidewalk.  He's got obsessive-compulsive disorder, apparently, his name is Bill, and I've heard he was once a chemistry grad student at the University, until his mind deteriorated.  My friend and I call him "Bill the Cigarette Picker-Upper."  He's generally filthy, and shirtless, weather permitting.  He prostrates himself like a Muslim praying to Mecca, and picks up cigarette butts, bits of paper, and god knows what else.  I've seen him board the municipal bus and prostrate in the aisle, hunting for discarded treasures.  I've bitten my nails as he calls the middle of the street his own hunting ground! Another local character, Monica the Horse Lady, has a crush on him, but that's another story.

GWB wroteI've lived in Cobb for 21 years.  I live outside of the very small town of Powder Springs, near that square that hasn't been changed since the 1940's (you can tell by the style of the square.)  Woop you are right, Georgia cops are fricking ***holes. 
I don't know if anyone else has had the experience with cops as I, but I find the farther up the chain they are, they more civil they become.  I've been pulled over by state cops and, while they're not friendly, they're more crisp and professional in their manner.  The local yokels tend to give you more dirty looks and attitude.  They also have a big need to intimidate you, like Officer Cartman, "respect mah authoratah!!!"  Among local cops, the attitude is worse among rookies than among older, higher ranking cops, as GWB points out.  Below local yokels, you've got security guards, rent-a-cops, and mall cops.  They're just d*cks!  I think it's because they know no one over fifteen takes them seriously!

I usually don't have a problem with animals, it's the OWNERS I have a problem with.  Our neighbors have a dog (a big one) that they occasionally chain up in the back yard.  Well, I'm walking in the yard today and almost step in a HUGE pile of dog crap. 

Now we're talking!
PET PEEVES
1. Loser-y macho guys who own Pitbulls, Rottweilers, Dobermans, or German Shepherds.*
2. Loser-y macho guys who own the above breeds and can't control them.
3. Anybody who owns any dog he or she can't control.
4. Pet owners who treat their pets like people. 
5. The above pet owners with resulting anxious, nutty, neurotic, ill-behaved dogs.
6. Dog owners who bring their dogs into shops and public buildings despite the prohibition.
7. Dog owners who leave their dogs tied out alone for 14 hours straight.  Poor dog!  :\'(
8. Cat owners who neglect the cat, resulting in a scrawny, scruffy, forlorn looking thing who
    shows up on my doorstep looking for a hand out.
9. People who pick "pets" higher on the food chain than they: great snakes, big cats, wolves,
    giant lizards, and crocadilians.  This is just wrong!!!

*my problem is with the owners, not the dogs.  In fact, a German Shepherd is one of my favorite breeds.  Any dog gets nasty if it's raised that way.

So my hummer is probably on your list?  I don't hog the road, I just like big gas-consuming automobiles.  Its my right as an American.

I actully got a call from the DNC and at first I wondered how did they get my number so I picked up.  And it was some fund raiser recording that SOUNDED like John Kerry saying ''press 1 to send George Bush back to Texas.''  So that freaked me out and I wondered if the DNC would be nice enough to add another option.  So I waited for the ''press 2 to keep John Kerry in Massachusetts'' option and it never came so I hung up.  I wouldn't mind it if it was from the GOP or RNC but I want nothing to do with Kerry or the DNC!

Thank you.  Why can't people who move to America learn English first?  I'm sick of the ATM asking me English or spainish?

Um, GWBush, I think you need to spend a year or two as a Guatemalan peasant.  After that you won't mind the big machine that gives you money asking you a question. 
Think about, the ATM says "English or Spanish" and you have to press one or the other, this does not exactly rank among the great travails of humanity!
At my ATMs, if you just ignore that question, it goes to English by default.  Maybe not on others, but nonetheless...

A word of advice....buy a pellet gun, they're not illegal in most places and the dog could possibly die of lead poisoning if they still make the pellets with lead.  Not that I'd know from experience or anything ;) 8)

A few points:

1.A shotgun is legal throughout all of American, not sawed-off shotguns, but shotguns in general and if it was me I'd use the shotgun.
2.Speaking from experience pellets are still made with lead and will kill most things they go into.  BB's are a safer bet.
3.Shotguns can be suppressed like any other gun through silenced bullets/shells or equiping it with a suppressor, though I wouldn't do it, its illegal now because of Brady's law I think.

1.  He lives in NYC.  I highly doubt the police (and neighbors) are going to take too kindly to someone firing a shotgun.
2.  I think you missed the point, the object IS to kill the dog.
3.  See above.  Firing a shotgun in Queens (isn't it Howard?) would be too darned noisy to do it "covertly".  That's why a pellet gun is his best bet

I despise those cell phone rings, they're so stupid, and LOUD!  I suppose I was pre-Goth in the '80s, the Robert Smith look with black clothes and eye make up.  I dunno, for me it was just some adolescent street theater, but today there seems to be a lot of spoiled sububan pathology behind it.  There's a whole of gross piercings, ugly tattoos, and an obsession with sexual kink.  Bleccchh.
High school kids playing hacky-sack are annoying just because I associate them with the annoying types who play hacky-sack.  Hacky-sack? That's in New Jersey, isn't it?  Hacky-sack isn't nearly as annoying as sidewalk skateboarding kids who don't know how to ride the d*mn things!!!  You're walking by bracing yourself for one of the boards to fly up and conk you in the head!  Skateboarding is prohibited on sidewalks in my town, but it never seems like the cops are around to send the little punks on my way.  Yeah, my meter runs out for five minutes, and I get a ticket, the skaters get to raise Cain all afternoon!

Male thongs?  Don't like 'em?  Don't look!

What annoys me? 

1. Annoying cell phone rings, is there anything wrong with just a plain old ring?
2. Male thongs.
3. Gothic kids, what is seriously up with that?
4. High-school age teenagers playing hacky-sack.

???dID YOU SEE THE Olympic gymnastics trials?That one Terin Humphrey ,I would say,has Goth type makeup.That has got to be the ugliest eye-makeup job I've seen on any athlete,ever! :PI mean she has some good moves,but when they show her close up,she looks like a zombie or something!!!Cheers!

3.-When I want to talk to radio stations The line's not in service

4.-Teenagers who talk in class

5.-I hate when I'm gonna take a shower and the phone rings!!!!

6.-When tell say I'm not open-minded!!!

Uh, why?


I guess you probably do it too.  The reason is I don't think hacky-sack was meant for 14, 15, 16, 17, and 18 year-olds.  I think it was meant for people between 5th and 7th grade.  Them playing hacky-sack is no better then the middle school-aged kids who play hop-scotch out in public in the town square.  Sorry kids today seem to know so much more about sex and stuff like that but at the same time they grow up slower and slower and slower.

I first saw hacky-sack in the very early '80s, it was introduced to me by my big sister's hippie fiance.  I don't remember it as recreation for children, but always a game for college-age crunchies.

"The Club" should be renamed "The Scam".  ::)

All you have to do to defeat the club is to take a set of bolt cutters to the steering wheel.  Takes about 3 seconds.  or use a hacksaw, for 15 seconds.  The Club then slips off and you have unfettered access to the steering wheel.  :P

Most of the homeless are people you don't see idle on the streets.  The ones you do see on the streets tend to be mentally ill or substance-addicted.  Some of them have endogenous disorders that make it impossible for them to look after themselves, others became unable to look after themeselves after addling their brains with drugs or alcohol.  When you can't care for yourself, and there's no one to care for you (or coerce care upon you), you're gonna be out on the street, and you're gonna stink!

A lot of mentally ill people, especially schizophrenics, are either too paranoid or too disorganized to get themselves to a shelter.  Sometimes they're right to be paranoid of shelters because people have been robbed, beaten, and raped at shelters.
Other homeless people would rather stay on the street than go into a shelter because of the militaristic and dehumanizing policies some of these places impose.
I have seen homeless people enter stores in the city only to have the employees give them the bum's rush--literally!  Street homeless are persona non grata everywhere.  I can't say I blame business owners for chucking out the bums.  Stores are there to make money, they're not equipped to deal with people society has forsaken.

A lot of mentally ill people, especially schizophrenics, are either too paranoid or too disorganized to get themselves to a shelter.  Sometimes they're right to be paranoid of shelters because people have been robbed, beaten, and raped at shelters.
Other homeless people would rather stay on the street than go into a shelter because of the militaristic and dehumanizing policies some of these places impose.
I have seen homeless people enter stores in the city only to have the employees give them the bum's rush--literally!  Street homeless are persona non grata everywhere.  I can't say I blame business owners for chucking out the bums.  Stores are there to make money, they're not equipped to deal with people society has forsaken.


There ARE exceptions though, Max. Many of the ones I come across at the library are pretty "normal" ...they read great books and use computers but thier stench is just ridiculously repulsive.

Your top 10 cell phone gripes:


1. Talking in restaurants

Gregory Edwards lost his appetite on a dinner with his girlfriend thanks to a man in the next booth who started talking about a kidney stone operation. "My ginger ale didn't look so good after that," said Edwards, 32, from Forest Hills.

2. Tattling in trains

On a recent 10-hour Amtrak trip from a vacation in Virginia, retired schoolteacher Wanda Wingfield was trapped in cell hell. "People talk so loud - they're louder on the phones than they are in person!" griped Wingfield, 60, of Castle Hill, the Bronx.

3. shouting at sports events

Sports fan Rob Greenblatt, from the Upper East Side, said he hated seeing guys at the NBA Finals talking courtside on their phones.

4. Self-absorbed at the store

The sign next to Frank Puebla's cash register spells out in clear block letters, "No Cellphones at Counter." But every day, the cashier at Saifee Hardware in the East Village still has to put the kibosh on oblivious chatterers holding up the line as they gab away. "It's annoying," said Puebla, 26, of Borough Park, Brooklyn.

5. Talking in theaters

Despite the city ban on cell phones in movie theaters, plays and concerts, pesky ringers still go off.

6. Babbling on the bus

Nobody likes to hear cell conversations on a city bus - especially Maria Ulmeanu. "Every time I get on the bus, I say, 'Please God, let it be quiet,'" said Ulmeanu, 48, from Astoria.

7. Not stopping in the stall

Yes, even the porcelain throne is not safe from the phone. "They're inside the closed door, speaking to their husbands, their friends, their parents," objected Long Island Rail Road ladies' room cleaner Gloria Bolton, 50, of Flatbush, Brooklyn. "They should do that in private."

8. Continuing in the cab

Amy Suggs hates cabbies with cell phones. "You think they're talking to you," said Suggs, a 32-year-old clothing salesclerk from DUMBO, Brooklyn.

9. Hands-free? What's that?

Looks like the ban on hand-held cell phones in cars is a bust with many drivers. "People still do it all the time," said Michelle Amran, 34, a homemaker from Forest Hills.

10. Below the belt

Bookstore owner Jim Drougas confronted one techno-savvy slimeball. "He showed me like a dozen pictures - all of girls' butts," said Drougas, 54, owner of a bargain bookstore in the West Village. "I told him there was a lot of police activity in the area and he better watch "his butt."

People who don't bathe or shower regularly...having to sit next to them on a crowded bus. There are some homeless people I've been around that smell like a latrine...not being mean,it's just sickening to me.Are they so mentally ill that they are afraid to bathe? Or maybe with their illness being active and their not being treated,they are apathetic and don't realize how horrible they smell.



There was this homeless woman who was carrying a big black bag of nickel cans then drags them on the city bus then sits down.She smelled from beer. :P

True.  When I worked at 7-11 we were told not to let anyone use the restrooms...also if people weren't buying anything they had to leave.  Paying customers see homeless in the store and they won't go in.  Not good for business.

As others have pointed out, shelters are not exactly ideal.  AND, especially in most big cities, they are not allowed in stores unless they are buying something.  Heck, in alot of places in Chicago, they won't even allow patrons to use the facilities unless it's a small child.  My son and I stopped at a Dunkin Donuts near Midway Airport the other night when taking my brother to the airport and the worker wouldn't allow ME into the restroom, but when my son said he had to go, he let us use it.  And, this was AFTER we had already purchased stuff.  I guess they could always use a public fountain ::)
I hear ya it's just that here they can walk into any Wal-Mart or King Soopers and have access to a restroom....heck...the library lets them in they can use THAT restroom to wash up. I've seen some actually that cared enough to do just that.

I had to go really bad when I was out at my doctor's for a bladder infection...I was on my way out of the pharmacy to go home....the closest place was a 7-11. I asked to use a bathroom,had explained my situation....the stupid cashier said I could not use the bathroom there,that he did not care if I went on the floor,to go outside,he was calling the cops...I went to Dunkin Donuts...they let me use their bathroom...I did NOT make it.

It sometimes depends on the neighborhood, Mark.  My dad works at 7-11 and at his store the public is not allowed to use the restroom.  They have found needles and other paraphanelia in there after some have gone in.

When I went to London, I was amused by the sheer number of public toilets everywhere.  I suppose some of them might be pretty nasty, but at least it keeps any public space where one can conceal oneself from reeking , like in New York or Boston.
See, if I had a kid, I'd just go up and say, "OK, my boy's got weak kidneys, you let us in or he's gonna hose down the joint."  I'd try and borrow one, but parents aren't too receptive to strange men who ask if they can take their little boys to the toilet.  I mean, it just don't work out so good, you know..."

Well, at least old London town had the good civic intentions.  In cities like New York and Boston, developers just pretend people don't have those biological necessities.  Of course, no matter what city you go to, the drunks and the junkies and the psychos are going to pee hither and thither instead of where they're supposed to!

They got rid of almost all the phone boxes (or booths, as we call them) in America because they weren't handicapped accessible.  The phones just stood out in the open air, and drunks peed on them all the same!

Well, some things are easier said than done.

As a short man, I encounter society's prejudice against short men all the time.  The media just LOVE reporting studies showing how short men get less respect, don't do well with women, don't make as much money, don't get promotions, have a higher suicide rate, have a higher heart disease rate, and so on and son.  The attitude from smiley beautiful people is, "gee whiz, men, I guess you better not be short!"  Height didn't matter so much to me until it became clear how much it mattered to our vain, appearance-obsessed society.
You've got all these women who just won't even consider dating a guy under 5'10," no matter what their height is.  Even if the guy is relatively attractive, like me, being "short" is a no-no.  The problem with height is that it's an immutable charactaristic.  There is a term heightism, which means discrimination against short people. 
Then there's what they call "short man's disease."
I was in a chat group about height prejudice, but it was just bitter short men kvetching about all the ways in which they had been slighted.  They picked up on every possible insult to short people in the media and wrote angry letters to the offending parties.  These guys liked to brag about how they bested taller guys in bar fights.  I found the whole thing insufferable.  I took one of the to task for saying, "short guys are expected to go out with fat women."
I said told he should show more compassion.  Fat women face similar prejudices to short men.  I got barraged with angry retorts about how "it's their fault they're fat, they just eat eat eat," and  "yeah, that's what they want us to do as short men, take the leftovers."  I could go on at length about these @ssholes, but the point is, they were the ones with "short man's disease," if anybody. 
In a way, I can't blame them.  If you don't have a chip on your shoulder as a short man, the macho culture will put one there for you.  It's just something you have to deal with.  However, bitterness and rage get you nowhere no matter what challenges you face, so I try to follow a path of wisdom...sometimes I stray

"it's their fault they're fat, they just eat eat eat,"


OMG! You do not know how badly that used to p*ss me off! I used to get told stuff like that all the time. "You have such a pretty face, if you'd just lose weight...." "You know, you could stop eating at any time..." etc. You can't just stop eating at any time. Mrrrrrrr. I struggled with my weight for years and years. I'd diet, lose a bit of weight, and then gain it all back and then some. At my heaviest, I was 20 pounds shy of 400 pounds. I loathed myself, but my mouth would rebel against my better judgment and I'd eat more and more. Finally, I just snapped and decided that I didn't want to look like that anymore. It took me a year and a half, but I dropped 200 pounds. I'm still not as light as I want to be (and I can't diet right now for obvious reasons ;D), but I'm happy with myself.

This isn't true for all people though. Some do have medical conditions that bar them from losing weight. There is also the very real disease of overeating (which I sort of had). It's right up there with bulimia and anorexia. That's why it irks the hell out of me when people say stuff like that. You don't know the person, so why are you making such stupid statements? The only time I get really annoyed with larger people is when they piss and moan about their weight and yet they're putting away fast food like it's going out of style. Don't expect compassion from me if you're going to stuff a Big Mac down your throat while crying about your weight. ::)

Just for the record, I never did eat much fast food. It was always big portions of homecooked meals. :-\\

My point exactly.  My disability, depression, has a behavior component to it.  Same thing with obesity. Sometimes with depression, you want to shut the shades and sleep all day.  It's the most tempting, but most destructive course of action.  Similarly, downing Big Macs and ice cream sundaes is most tempting for obese people, but most destructive.  When I see people with behavioral problems hurting themselves, I know how hard it is to fight.  Sometimes you win the battle of will, sometimes you lose.  Too many people hang onto the myth "stop eating so much" as the simple solution to obesity.  That's about as useless as saying "snap out of it" to a depressed person.
There's also a myth that SHAME works.  If you make people feel bad enough about their behavior, they'll change.  Shame--that is "toxic shame," as John Bradshaw called it--causes incalculable destruction.  Yet, so many people, mostly right-wingers, go on about how there's not ENOUGH shame!

On the flip side of that, I was always "super skinny" growing up (5'6" and maybe 85 lbs in 4th grade) and people were always telling me "you need to eat...you're too skinny" like I was anorexic or something.  When I explained to them that I DID eat, they looked at me like I was a liar or something.  ::)

Gaahh!  I know!  I'm 15 and I've weighed exactly 122 pounds for I don't know how long.  The last couple of years at least.  I'm one of those people that can eat and eat and eat and eat and never gain weight, and I'm sick of people saying "You need to put some meat on those bones!" ::) et cetera.  Most people wouldn't dare to guess how much I eat, but it's a lot.

You know what, though, you can't really blame the kids.  They don't understand that you don't have to say EVERY thought that comes into your head.  I've had my kids make comments about people before and I explain to them that a)it's not nice, they wouldn't want someone talking about them & b) WHY the person they commented on is "different" (if I can discern).  I once had a lady go off on me when my (then 3 y.o.) son asked me why the lady was so short (she was a dwarf).  I was in the middle of explaining to him that she was born that way when she came over and started yelling at me for having a rude child.  I then explained to her that he had never seen someone like her and was curious, like ANY 3 y.o. would be.  She said a few "choice words" and walked off.  He then asked  me "Mommy, do all short people use bad words?"  and I replied "No honey, only the rude ones" ;)


Who said I blamed them? I don't blame the kids. They don't know any better. However, the parents should teach their kids to first of all, not stare at people. That is more rude than making comments to a kid's statements. Second, the parents should teach their kids to be more tolerant of people who are different than they are before they are confronted with a situation like that!

By the way, I would never have a go at a kid's mum or dad for their behaviour. I understand that kids are kids, and if they're really young they may not understand what they're seeing. Hopefully the parent(s) will explain that not everyone looks the same as they do and to never judge a book by its cover. However, if they want to raise their kids to be intolerant jerks, that's their business, too. Just as long as they don't offend me and make me angry. "You won't like me when I'm angry!"

At an apartment complex I used to live at, I was talking with a security guard and he was being constantly interupted by his partner on the walkie-talkie....he was at the Dunkin Donuts wanting to know what kind the other guy wanted ;D :D

Here's a big list of things I hate:

People:
1. Hypocrites
2. Homophobes
3. Intolerant Religious Zealots
4. Anyone willing to commit a hate crime
5. Badly-Behaved Children, such as those who swear, use violence, taunt others or listen to their intolerant, racist parents.
6. Corrupt officials
7. Critics. I don't mind people who do it for a living, but regular people who won't shut up about their opinion on how you're failing at everything
8. Arrogant people
9. Con Artists. Brilliant as they are, I do not respect their work
10. Those who lack senses of humor. There are a lot, especially on this site.
11. Spiteful ones
12. Anyone bent on genocide
13. People who are depressed without reason, and write bad poetry to seem "sad"
14. Annoyingly optomistic people. I don't have a problem with you looking on the bright side, but stop desperately seeking one in EVERYTHING! God how I hate them. I loathe them. Them and their song "The Remedy". I hate that song. A lot.
15. Pseudo-intellectuals. Anyone who pretends to be intelligent by doing things that seem intelligent.
16.Conformists. This is right up there with Optomists.
17. People who won't shut up about how great the 80s were and how bad the 90s and 00s are. I wouldn't care, but some of them NEVER shut up about it.
18. People who use WTF and HTF instead of swearing like they mean it. I denounced swearing, but I feel that you should either use it or not. No trying to get away with using the first letter in a web acronym, or putting an asterisk on 1 letter.
19. People on messageboards that go, "Hey ;D I ;D happen  ;D to  ;D like..." After you give an opinion on something.


There are more in that category, but I don't have the time or space to list them all.


Things:

1. Trendy music. Who decides which songs are cool? We need to shoot that person in the face.
2. Constantly changing and upgrading technology. Just when you get something cool, it's obsolete, and everyone hates you if you don't get the new thing.
3. Web logs with no substance. Instead, they're crammed with online quiz results and bad poetry.
4. Message boards with people who do nothing but shoot down the opinions of others. See my signature for a similar thing I hate. It's made me become a hermit. I'm a fine hermit, if I do say so myself.
5. McDonalds commericials. They all seem to encourage the hatred of less-attractive people and view them as second-class citizens, denied bus seats to anyone more physically "attractive" or anyone who happens to have McDonalds food. I also hate whoever's deciding what's attractive in people. It's probably the media, so...
6. The Media. I hate them and their unrealistic perceptions on beauty.



I have OH SO MUCH more, but I have neither the time or space to hate all I want, so I may come back. I also want to see if this post gets any responses. Later!

Hey...I'm big...and once in a while I go to Burger King and get a Whopper Jr regular(notice NOT supersized)value meal. I am a food addict,and I have to really plan out what I eat to keep myself away from certain foods. I think a tendency for addictive disorders is in my family-my mom was a MAJOR alcoholic who tried to get 'on the wagon' several times...she died at 63,kinda young nowadays to die....and my biological father was an alcoholic and compulsive gambler. I have a hard time talking about painful things in my life,so I tend to stuff myself-and the pain-with food. I go to a therapist to help me work on my problems and the pain from my past...

--My personal hate (and I hope this doesn't start anything) are the left-wing extremists.  Open-society people who want secular things like: STRICT separtaion of church and state, legalization on drugs, public healthcare, banning firearms, legalization of gay marriage, and other stuff.  My personal qualms are with Michael Moore, George Soros, Al Franken, Jananne God-awful-o, Ralph Nader, Howard Dean, John Kerry, Hillary Clinton, Edward Kennedy, and Conan O'Brien.

And one sidenote (please don't respond here on this thread) i'm surprised that no one has mentioned ''under God'' staying in the U.S. pledge.

Wrong. Here we go again with blaming other people for your problems.

I have no problems, Heavymetal - I have no credit cards.  :)

Yes, the banks are greedy and so are alot of people. It's called being responsible for your own actions. Don't blame the banks. Blame yourself.

Well, I'm not blaming me (see above for why) and anyhow this was not what I was saying. I was remarking on my workmate's ignorance or stupidity more so than the banks - I guess they have a job to do. I have a good credit rating so I get floods of junk-mail from my bank asking me to apply for loans - obviously it goes in the bin. People have the choice to take notice of junk mail but if you want that car or that stero equipment, then temptation is just a piece of post away. I still think credit cards are a bad idea.

I too had 8 grand on my credit card. Finally realizing what i was doing, and it was my fault, I simply stopped using them for everyting and now I'm down to almost 3 grand. Typical of Americans, blame everyone but yourself. No wonder kids of today are pathetic. They have parents who tell them do what you want, we'll blame everyone else.  Sickening!

It is great that you can control the ever increasing debt credit cards can get people into. I admire you because you have got yourself into trouble, at least realised you are in trouble and are getting yourself out of it.  :)

Now, Heavymetal, may I ask if you have bothered to look at my profile because you will find I come from England in the UK so it is not just an idea typical of our friends across the pond (despite the fact that you generalised/distorted my point  :-\\). You raise a point about kids being pathetic because of their parents blaming everyone else . . . Well, there is a little truth in that but there is also a little truth in the fact that credit cards are not a good idea.  ;)

Excuse me, sir, if you read your history, you will see massive waves of crime, gangsterism, rioting, and drunkenness among Irish immigrants.  I have some Irish ancestors myself, but you can say the same for any mass migration of poor people to the U.S. 
The idea that the European immigrants of yesteryear behaved better than the Latino immigrants of today is fantasy.  I'm not saying your ancestors were thugs or criminals, but neither are most of today's immigrants.  They want the same thing as immigrants 100 and 200 years ago--a better life, and as then, most will work as hard as they can to get it.
Now, remember a couple of key differences.  One is the decline in available jobs for unskilled and semiskilled people.  Our industrial and agricultural sectors require today nothing like what they required in the old days.
Another difference is that the entire continent is "settled."  There is no frontier to absorb immigrants anymore.  There's no government subsidized "homesteading."
Don't forget the complicity of agriculture in the exploitation of illegal immigrants.  If farms had to hire resident aliens and U.S. citizens AND pay them fair wages, you would pay triple what you pay now for a head of lettuce.

3. People who join an established group and then immediately start insulting people and having an ‘attitude’

4. People who dish out insults, then insist they were only joking but refuse to see the joke if other people do the same back to them.

5. People who say they don’t want to discuss something and then complain when you don’t discuss that they don’t want to discuss something.

Read the post.  I referred to ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, the vast majority of whom enter the country without visa or permission to enter.  Thus breaking the law the moment their feet hit terra firma in the US of A.

Yes, there are also OTHER illegals who came here on a valid visa, then overstayed their legal limit.  THOSE illegal immigants, the moment they became "illegal", were also breaking the law, either out of a deliberate action, or ignorance of our laws.

Check out this link for a definition of the word "illegal": http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=illegal

It oddly links "illegal" with being "Prohibited by law".

So please explain to me how I can enter a country illegally and not have broken the law?  (I guess it all depends on what your definition of the word "is", is.)

I think you enjoyed this a little too much. Real cute too with the whole definition thing. I know that no matter what I say, ever, you will fight me on it. But yes, a very great majority, more than you'll ever know, are illegal simply as a technicality, simply because they are ignorant of our laws; hired/brought directly from their homelands by the rich, farmers and industry, kept virtually hidden, some treated very well and others used and abused for very little compensation. As far as I'm concerned then, those "illegal" immigrants are not breaking the law.

Yes.  They are ignorant of our laws.  That obviously explains why they risk their lives paying smugglers to get in, why they cross the desert in the middle of the night to sneak in, and so on.  Or in the case of many Chinese immigrants, pack into freighters under slavery contracts.  Or in the case of Cubans and Haitians, turn a '55 Chevy into a maritime vessel.  I guess they never thought to take a bus or airplane or regularly-scheduled boat. It explains why INS has a computer file of "repeat offenders" who continue to reenter the USA after they've been deported for illegal entry.  Yeah, ignorance.  That's the ticket.

So "ignorant of the law" that it never dawns on them to enter the country by the duly-designated entry points via a safe mode of transportation?  Gimme a break.

By the way, it is a paramount point of both Mexican, Chinese, Canadian and American law (and for that matter jurisprudence througout the world) that "ignorance of the law shall not be a valid defense".

The Rule of Law is not what either you or I think is the law "as far as we are concerned".  It is what is encoded in our system of laws and statutes, and which have been affirmed by our judicial system.  It is subject to modification based on our system of government and the Constitutional due process provisions.  Operating under the Rule of Law is what distinguishes the United States (and many other countries) from totalitarian regimes in which the law consists of what the dictator thinks is the law "as far as he is concerned".

Illegal immigration today versus Ellis Island 100 years ago has a lot to do with drastic shifts in world politics, world population, and worldwide indusrial/agricultural patterns.  Today's illegal immigrants would rather come here legally, but when your family is hungry and sick living in a cardboard shack on a toxic waste dump in Neuvo Leon, you don't give a second thought to laws they write up in Washington.

Whatever.  Took my immediate family almost 15 years to get citizenship.  We entered this country legally, had an extended visa, then 8 years of Green Card permanent residency before finally becoming citizens in 2000.  

Sure it sucks for them people who want to be safe from tyranny and terrorism, but if they crossed oceans and deserts to get to another country, a little more red tape isn't gonna kill them.  Besides, they need to be documented so that they help pay some taxes :P No freeloaders in this land!

Let me pose a question to you....if you were living in a country such as Cuba,Iraq,Afghanistan, or any country where OPPRESSION,TORTURE and MURDER by your GOVERNMENT is 'an everyday thing'...would'nt you do anything in your power to come to a better place?


No.  I'd become either a politician or a guerilla and either change the situation or die trying.

That is how America was formed, after all.

Under your proposal, when the British started being dip-wads, the colonists would have gotten back on the Mayflower and gone somewhere else.

Besides, there are plenty of countries for people to emigrate to.

The "experts" who tell us everytime it rains that the drought is still heavy.  We have had more rain this month than we got last summer so far.  I haven't had to water my lawn all month.  I would say the rain is helping greatly.


New York City had more rain too. about 3 inches so far in total. :o

Yeah, I see that all the time, too.  Sickening.  You'll see an elderly woman with three shopping bags enter the subway car.  Everyone will just sit their like dopes, let grandma hang onto the pole. I get up and say, "Care to sit down, ma'am?"  Her first reaction is surprise, then she says, "Oh, thank you." 
In the old days, a gentleman was supposed to offer his seat to a lady no matter what.  Some women began to regard the practice as sexist, so the practice dwindled.  Ditto with holding doors.  Now people don't even have the courtesy to help out those who obviouslty need it.

I tend to hold doors open for men, women, old and young: if someone's heading in just behind me, it doesn't matter to me whether they're male or female; even whether they "need" it or not (it saves me from having to pass judgement on how "needy" a person is).

But I found it very amusing while pushing a buggy with a baby in around town: there is a large section of the female population (typically mothers themselves, I guess) who seem to assume that a man with a buggy is obviously doing it for the first time and won't have any idea how to open a door while pushing the thing - comparing my experience with my wife's, it seems that I got lots more doors opened for me than she ever did.

Have you ever heard Springsteen's original recording of "Blinded" ?  It is actually pretty good, not the weird approach that Manfred Mann did.

What's really nauseating is the obsessive coverage of certain murder victims: JonBenet Ramsey, Chandra Levy, Laci Peterson, and now Lori Hacking.  The American newsmedia doesn't push this coverage out of concern for justice, they do it because it's just the kind of lurid tabloid titilation that sells.  It's not like I don't care if a woman gets murdered by her husband, or whoever, hundreds of miles away, the problem is there's nothing I can do about it.  It also doesn't qualify as national "news" beyond the initial reports and maybe the trial results.  Otherwise, the rampant speculation is just annoying as h*ll!

I see the purpose of these spaces as providing a safe (not crossing the car park) space for people with young children (which to me means under 5's).  If I only take my daughter to the supermarket then I don't use the spot because she is perfectly capable of walking across the car park (even if she doesn't like doing so  :) )

Sure, most of the supermarkets introduced them about 6 years or so ago.  They are sometimes also in multi-storey car parks in the first few places near the stairs/lift.

With the supermarkets you are supposed to register your car with them and display a sticker but they often don't check.

Parent and young child spaces make more sense than expectant mother to me.  Even the day I gave birth I could waddle from the car to a shop or whatever.  In fact I went into labour walking around a funfair!  ;D

Well I think overall life seems pretty good,but if I had to pick something it would probably be the banks and their damn service charges.It seems if you go into a bank and even look the wrong way they ding you with a service charge.The way I see it,we the people put our money in the bank, and then they use it to make money through loans to companies,personal loans,investments or whatever.So why the heck should I have to pay them to take my own damn money out? >:(

I agree!  I cannot STAND how so many people treat animals as emotionless meatbags.  And the churches do NOTHING about it.  I read a story on a Catholic website (the "true faith"  ::) ) that this guy wore mink fur and said "that's why God made minks".  The article didn't even debunk it.  The church site even endorsed hurting animals to help make MAKEUP!  They support animal torture not only to save people, but to make them "cooler"!

I agree. Like I've said before, people who torment are tormented themselves with self hate.  Its kinda like a manifestation of karma.  They still have ego and are still selfish but they hate themselves as well as others.  There's no reason to stoop to their level and return the hate.  It will only consume your soul and there's enough hate to them already.  an Why make fun of you for your fav BAND?  If you're going to be judgemental of people it should be for their character. That is so stupid!  P.O.D. have some good songs too!  Yeah I always say, "If you're offended by an insult you probably believe it's true."

Well, the members of the Agony Booth forum made fun of me because I talked about Thomas Haden Church a lot. One of the smarta$$es than created a topic called "Obsessive Forum Posters" (They made the topic a “sticky”, too.) which was directed at me. Then they poked even more fun at me by putting THC's name after every word in a sentence in follow-up posts.

I'm actually proud of my Thomas Haden Church fanaticism and I'm not obsessed in a dangerous way (Stalking, psycho video postcards, ect). It's actually quite healthy and I know my boundaries. I'd hurt myself before I'd ever hurt anybody else.
I'm more like some of those people who were on that VH1 show Totally Obsessed. Thomas Haden Church is a hobby for me. I collect his movies, I collect photos, ect. I know that soon it will probably escalate to collecting paraphernalia from other movies and TV shows (I'm starting to collect stuff from Back to the Future and Sliders when I find them at garage sales and stuff. I know that if I see it and don't buy it, it will be harder to find later on.). Being a fan of Thomas Haden Church has brought me to appreciate movies more.

I don't know, Tonyfan...this could become a slippery slope.  Someone could be polite but still someone else could be offended by them...maybe by their taste in music, etc.  That person could complain about being offended and get the other person in trouble, even though the person had not meant to offend.  You can't really judge someones intent.  I do agree that people that ridicule people for handicaps, etc should be smacked, but I don't think legal action should be taked unless specific threats are made.  You can always go to another board if continually offended by someone.  There are plenty of boards out there (like this one) that are moderated and that kind of behavior is not tolerated.

Oh, it's not so bad if it only happens occasionally and you want to bum a smoke from a friend or something...but if it happens all the time, no matter who it is, it gets annoying. What's more annoying, though, is when complete strangers come up and ask you for one. ::)

I knew a few guys like this when I was in the Army. Normally I'm a generous person, and if someone asks me if they can bum a smoke I'm usually happy to oblige. (I might bum one myself once in a great while.) But these guys I knew in the Army were constantly trying to bum smokes off of me, and they were also trying to borrow money as well, and for some reason these guys seemed to always have terrible personal hygiene. (Seriously...some of these guys would go several days or even weeks without showering. Ewwww!) These traits were so common among these cigarette mooches that they were uncanny, to the point that I seriously began to wonder if they all came from the same ancestors. Some nasty, unpleasant white trash tribe from the British Isles (these guys all had English-sounding last names) that never freakin' bathed.

Trust me, you don't want to be around these people. One time our platoon had this job on another base and we had to stay in this big tin shed. It was in June or July, (average temp. 85 F), the shed had no a/c (and neither did our trucks, which we had to drive around in all day in the hot sun), and we had to stay there for a whole week. The only place to shower was a locker room in the gym, and for some reason German hot water heaters were usually no larger than a laundry hamper, so I could pretty much count on getting an ice-cold shower. But I'd be so funky at the end of the day I didn't care.
    Howerver, there was this one guy in my platoon (who, not surprisingly was also a notorious cigarette mooch, and in hindsight, possibly an infiltrator from the 5th Scabby-Arsed Tramps) who didn't shower ALL FREAKIN' WEEK. Fortunately for me, I was clear at the other end of the building, so his stench didn't reach me, but the people bunking around him got so fed up by the end of the week that they gave him an ultimatum: Either take a shower or sleep outside the building.

      He chose to sleep outside.  :P :o ???

Seriously.. i love it.. talk to nobody and eventually people will be curious. It's fun.. people make up storys as well.. 'Is he the guy that killed his parents?' 'Yeah man' ;D

How my mental-health staff want to make my LOSING WEIGHT a priority for getting a job....especially when the job I'd like is something that I have seen heavyset people do..deejaying for parties..'oh yeah we're afraid you'll fail....someone might be nasty to you..' I have to wonder if they worry not only for me but ABOUT THEIR PROGRAM'S IMAGE IN THE TAXPAYERS' EYES...Coz I certainly know to BEHAVE NORMALLY in public..and I certainly don't have "Client of Atlanticare Pact Team A and CSP Housing" tattooed on my forehead!! I understand their concerns for my health,but they are not the people who are living my life...I am. If I make a mistake I own up to it,it's not THEIR mistake it's MINE. I wonder if they think that way because some of their other clients REFUSE to acknowledge their mistakes?

People who stick there noses where they don't belong trying to 'change' you. Plastic manufactured pop stars who get a ton of respect just for being famous, and having no discernable talent. While 'true' music talent goes largely unoticed (largely because they wan't it that way). And basically everyone and everything else, especially myself.

Girls who think they are too good for any guy who isn't a model with a six-pack and a big youknowwhat, ignorant people, people who don't think for themselves (about anything), left-wing extremists, right-wing extremists, racists, people who don't see others' point of view.etc.etc., people who care too much, people who care too little, over-emotional whiney people. Arrogant p*icks.  Basically, as I said, everyone. I'm annoyed at everyone for at least ONE thing. I don't think I've met anyone without at least ONE annoying aspect to them.

Touch-screen tracking.
I'm borrowing my friend's laptop today because my computer has been in the shop since Tuesday. 
Anyway, he's got this pokey laptop (pokey, literally and figuratively), and the touch screen tracking device is like shoveling smoke.  The keyboard also has one of those half-sized right shift keys so you keep hitting "/" or the up arrow.  More often you nudge the stupid touch screen and send your cursor flying across the screen!

Darrell Waltrip is a very colourfull announcer, it's part of the job for ol' Jaws to run his mouth, I've been a DW fan since 1980, I do think he stayed behind the wheel too long, his career was basically over once he had "the big one" Had he put a young driver in his #17 car he might still be a car owner today but it's nice that he remains in the spotlight, most people understand his special brand of humour eventhough they didn't during his driving days. What I think would be a great way to test a drivers skill is to have them all drive the exact same cards but this will never happen, it's very easy to see today that the teams with the big money are going to be the winners year in and year out. The days of an independent driver like Alan Kulwicki are gone. I like good humoured arguing between the fans of different drivers, it's part of the fun but I talk to some fans and you would swear they have a personal hatred for the drivers they dislike. The most common reason I see for a driver being hated is because that driver is a really good driver. I noticed Gordon hating went away for awhile after Evernham left the team, why? because he wasn't winning as much.

Oh, I thought those were the complimentary attributes of NASCAR fans.
No, no, only joking! Really!

I don't know who is saying such things about NASCAR fans, but I'll bet it is a reaction to the politicalization of NASCAR fans, particularly the trendy demographic "NASCAR dads."  Few NASCAR fans asked to be made a political football (not to confuse sports with metaphor), and I don't think you were one of the few.
See, what arose when the Republican spinmesiters politicized NASCAR was the negative corollary: those who don't like NASCAR are effete latte-drinking, PBS-watching, vegan,* homo-erotic porn-enjoying, family-hating, marijuana smoking, terrorist-apologising, whatever-the-heck-else you-wanna-throw-in-there sissy liberals.  So the door swings both ways. 
I would comment more on this phenomenon, but such a discussion really belongs on the politics board.

*mind you, a vegan takes her or his latte with soy milk!

After flying this weekend, people who push their way on/off an airplane. I had some lady literally push me so she could get on the plane ahead of me. Guess what lady???? If you've got a boarding pass on a not full flight, you're gonna get a seat. THEN, she's on the aisle and has so much crap in her lap that it takes her 2-3 minutes to let the other 2 people sitting on the inside in....Although, I DID see her get whacked in the head by someone's bag as they were walking by because she was leaning into the aisle ;D. And, can someone explain to me why they load the plane from front to back now? It would seem to me to be MUCH quicker to let the ones in the back on first so they didn't have to push past the idiots in the front who are taking FOREVER to get situated.
I've flown recently, and I've noticed a lot of RUDENESS among passengers....I was struggling to get a small backpack into the overhead storage bin....and everyone just stood there and stared even when I asked for help...

buy a car  ;)

Uh, Howard lives in NYC.  Unless you're a rich mofo, having a car in New York is more annoying than any tribulations with mass transit.  Bureaucratic parking restrictions, usurious garaging fees, sky-high insurance, theft, and vandalism, and gridlocked city traffic are all a terrible burden.

Speaking of mass transit, it always bugs me when I go to Boston if I have to stand in line for subway tokens because they're too cheap to staff more than one cashier's booth in a given station.  It also annoys me to wait on the platform for fifteen minutes at rush hour because the MBTA can't get their central dispatching together.  It drives me nuts when they send around two-car trolleys on the Green Line when there's a game at Fenway Park.  Station attendents practically have to jam people in with sticks, like they do in Tokyo.  It also bugs me when miscreants use the corners and stairwells of T stations as urinals.  I hate standing on a platform where it smells like some drunk just tossed his cookies.  Let's see, I hate the fare increases as a favored form of regressive taxation by Republican governors and their corrupt democratic party machine lackeys.

Finally, the most annoying thing of all in Boston transpration, fifteen years and running, two words: Big Dig!

After flying this weekend, people who push their way on/off an airplane.  I had some lady literally push me so she could get on the plane ahead of me.  Guess what lady????  If you've got a boarding pass on a not full flight, you're gonna get a seat.  THEN, she's on the aisle and has so much crap in her lap that it takes her 2-3 minutes to let the other 2 people sitting on the inside in....Although, I DID see her get whacked in the head by someone's bag as they were walking by because she was leaning into the aisle ;D.  And, can someone explain to me why they load the plane from front to back now?  It would seem to me to be MUCH quicker to let the ones in the back on first so they didn't have to push past the idiots in the front who are taking FOREVER to get situated.




I agree with you that it would make more sense to load the plane from back to front. But they don't because it would MAKE SENSE!!!  As Carlos says about flying, they treat you like cattle, pack you in like sardines and feed you like dogs. That is part of the reason why I HATE FLYING!!!

I have no need for a car either.....but I am keeping an open mind about it....New Jersey Transit has expanded their bus routes in this area,BIG TIME,from twenty years ago,because of Atlantic City getting casinos...many employees and local people use the bus or train rather than driving....because traffic here can be a nightmare especially in the summer when the 'shoobies'(our slang for tourists) come down in droves...

CUTOMERS! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH! I work in a newsagents, and you seriously wouldn't believe some of the wierdos we get in EVERY night. I hate customers who:

Lean over the counter to see what i'm typing into the keyboard
Waft notes in my face while i'm busy serving them
Watch me standing counting the scratchcards at night, and then ask me for about 5
Cough for attention
Argue with me for agument's sake
Laugh when something doesn't scan. They ALWAYS say "Heh, it doesn't want to scan, does it?!". grrr i wanna pound their faces in when they say that
Buy about 34 things, and haven't got enough money, so I have to sit and refund 10 items which takes f-o-r-e-v-e-r
Take their own stupid mistakes out on me
Stand and count the money when they're giving it to me. why?!?!?! I can count, you berk!
Dump their items on the counter whilst i'm busy serving someone else. I end up getting confused and then getting told off for scanning the wrong things. We have baskets, you know!


Those are just a FEW of the really really irritating habits the customers around us have. There are too many more to mention, so to sum up...

-  When, after telling people that I'm Spanish, they proceed to ask me what country I'm from.  But then, this also stems from the fact that it seems as though anyone that speaks Spanish is labeled as Spanish.  A Spanish person is from SPAIN.  Not Mexico, Cuba, or Argentina.  Those are Mexicans, Cubans, and Argentinians.  I don't get angry or fussy over it, but it does irk me.

Lately, it's been my best friend.  She's dating a guy who just got divorced in October (they were dating prior to his divorce being finalized) and all I hear anymore is her bitching about him...first it was that he didn't want to get married in the next year (Jesus, he's not even been divorced a year, who in their right mind would want to marry (or be married) that soon???) NOW, it's that he didn't get her a "gift" (he gave her $$) for Mother's Day.  Now, I may be wrong, but it never occurred to me that it's a boyfriend's "job" to get his girlfriend a MD gift if she's not the mother of his children.....I asked hubby and HE never got his girlfriends with kids presents on MD, he says it's the kids' father's responsibility.




My husband has NEVER gotten me a Mother's Day gift and I wouldn't expect him to, either. But, I must say, that it was nice to get a Mother's Day card from my step-daughter. That meant the world to me.


Anyway, you should ask her, if she is constantly bitching about this guy, why is she still with him?

This annoys me:

My neighbours downstairs have just moved in, they did not pop up to tell us they would be making an awful lot of noise whilst moving in, neither did they add that they would be sanding the floor and doing all sorts of DIY. Now I would not have any problem with this but the fact is that they did not come up to apologise first, which would have been the courteous thing to do. (It's what I would have done). They also continue to annoy me by (and I know this for a fact) staying in all day watching TV then 10 mins after I get in from work in the evenings they start banging hammers and drilling and god knows what else. They keep going all evening.Then on Saturday mornings when I like to sleep in, they hack down bushes with a chainsaw at like 7am.

Why was I not told about this???

Anyway, thats what gets on my nerves right now. I think it's just inconsiderate, considering we also have an elderly neighbour who is recovering from lung cancer and needs to rest. Though they would know that if they had bothered to check first.

Argh.

It grates on me even more though, when you try to explain to the parent that their kid has done something wrong and needs punishing, and they come up with the line 'I know he's not an angel...'. GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! I know he's not an angel, he's an absolute juvenile. Why can't you see?

In their defense, though, sometimes if you're on dial-up, searching can take a LONG time.  I know even on broadband, some searches take forever....I agree, though, if it's a thread that's on page 2 or 3 ;)

I'm annoyed at people who don't parent their children.  I went on an overnight camping trip with my 2 oldest this weekend and was kept awake by traffic, trains, landfill methane gas, etc. until 5:30, when pure exhaustion took over my body and I finally fell asleep.  THEN at 5:45 (no, that's not a typo) these parents decide it's time to pack up and are letting their kids run WILD, screaming "NOT IT", running around (and into) tents, and the little brats actually UNZIPPED my tent, to which I promptly replied "WHAT THE HE|| DO YOU THINK YOU'RE DOING?"  The parents are lucky I never found them >:(
I TOTALLY agree with you on the "lazy" parents. I see things like that ALL the time. When my boys were young they were raised to be attetive to us and thus were well behaved...and they had...hmm, what's that word?  Oh yeah....MANNERS! As well as respect. I think too often that parents forget that with children comes responsibilty and accountabilty. Lots of laziness in the world ::)

On your reply to mine, I have dial-up and do miss a thread here and there sometimes but I agree that's it's kinda silly to miss one that's not buried ::) ;)

It p*sses me off big time, and it's happened a few times in my thread, and i've wanted to kick the person doing it in the balls on a number of occassions...

I don't deal with AOL.  I've had to deal with MSN several times this year, that's a big enough headache for a lifetime!  The company I was (as in past tense) working for required I install MSN messenger!  The first thing MSN IM did was unleash a host of savage viruses into my system!  It cost me ninety dollars to get the whole system cleansed.  And you know what?  I'm the SCM*CK for not having the RIGHT anti-virus software, NOT MSN for making SH*TTY products!

To carry on Mark's post... Random/pointless threads. "The Blah Thread" to name but one. There are plenty of random chit-chat threads post in there.  ::)



DAK wrote:
Completely agreed. They really are beginning to annoy me now. There are two more to add to the list 'jiminy' a thread about Jiminy being annointed the king of -wait for it- blah (surprise), and 'Im a nestor le penguoin' all about how this pointless-thread poster became graduated to the next level of penguinhood (yep, not like it happens to everybody when they reach 500 threads - he's special). I'm beginning to take a very dim view of these threads, but what annoys me more is the fact that people are actually posting in them. Why? All they are doing is encouraging it. Okay, i've posted one comment in each, but there are members posting a handful of comments and they are making it worse. I think from now on if a certain number of members finds a certain thread useless and therefore a waste of perfectly good board space, then they can PM a website editor about it and get it removed, because I know it isn't just me who's getting annoyed by it


I do agree with both of you. I don't mind a few B.S. threads and I have posted in some myself, but they have seem to be getting out of hand lately. The majority of threads on the PPP are nothing BUT B.S. threads.  What also bothers me is that many people seem to "highjack" other threads and turn them into B.S. threads. I think there are enough B.S. threads that people don't need to post their B.S. in the ones that aren't.

What gets me p*ssed off is when PARENTS DO NOT TEACH THEIR KIDS THAT TEASING,BULLYING AND BEING NASTY TO OTHERS IS ABSOLUTELY WRONG!!When I was a kid, if I even hinted at being nasty to someone...I was disciplined,even slapped in the face...Kids need to learn what comes around,goes around...parents can deal with nastiness by disciplining their kids...setting the example themselves by being at least CIVIL to others(even when you want to STRANGLE them!)...and praising their kids when they ARE polite to others. That raises a kid's self esteem.

That reminds me of an oxymoron...."City workers." Where I lived a few years ago they were supposed to be resurfacing our street. I sat outside on the porch one morning and listened with disgust as they stood around smoking, cussing and bragging about how they could make the job last as long as they wanted. I had a friend who worked as a secretary in the city office a while back. She ended up quitting because she got tired  of them coming in off thier jobs and bragging about screwing up so they could go back in 6 months and do it all over ahgain. PLUS....does it really take 5 people to fill a pothole? I mean, I always see 1 guy moving a shovel around while the others stand around yapping. I don't care if it pays $21 an hour....I could never be that way >:(

The A.A.U. which Steve Prefontaine helped bring down. The A.A.U. was an American organization that would not allow athletes to become proffesional and compete in the Olympics, while the rest of the world could have pro's in them. They were paid just $5 a day to live off of, so most of them had to take jobs. Thankfully, thanks to Steve Prefontaine, there is no more A.A.U. :)

The new promo for "Cinderella Man"...they say critics give it two thumbs WAY up ::)


Art imitates life....jack@ss Russell Crowe was just arrested for assaulting a hotel worker by throwing a PHONE at the man's face. Way to go, idiot! Much like every other star, he'll probably weasel his way out of this mess. :P

Stuff that annoys me today:

The fact that the Diaper Genie diaper pail smells like a pile of garbage...even after I washed the d@mned thing out.

The fact that my mother in law insulted me, my parents, my husband, and whoever else she felt like putting down. I hope she rots in hell with all the money she's always complaining about (LOOOOOOOOOOONG story).

The fact that I have to badger people about applying for a stupid credit card everytime they go through my line at work. I hate when it's done to me, so I loathe having to do this. :P

The fact that I'm being pulled in a million different directions at once. I'm always busy now, so it's a frickin' luxury to even be on here. So to all my buds, I'm sorry. I'm not ignoring you, I'm just incredibly exhausted and stretched beyond my means. Hopefully tomorrow I can accomplish some heavy duty emails to everyone. :-*

The stupid b*tch of a lady that totalled the back end of my husband's car today and then had the nerve to tell him that "it wasn't that bad". Bull f*cking cr*p! The whole frickin' trunk was ripped away from the bumper so you could see bolts and sh*t! The stupid cow of a woman also copped an attitude and stated that she was looking at the light and not at my husband's car. Okay,so she's going by the light and not by what the car was doing in front of her. Way to f*cking go, b*tch! Then she tried to take off, saying she had an appointment and that the last time she did this (WTF? There was a last time?), she didn't have to stay around for the police to arrive.

She is so very very lucky that my sister wasn't hurt worse than she was (she has a bit of whiplash) and that my baby boy (who was also in the backseat) was okay. If something had happened to them, I would be in jail right now for assault...or murder. :P

Cashiers who give you a dirty look when paying for something in small change.  ::)

Cashiers who give you a dirty look when you pay for a newspaper or something with a twenty dollar bill.  It's one thing for a small-time vendor who doesn't have much cash, but when it's a big operation, they shouldn't give  rat's azz.

People who STILL insist on standing there writing a check and holding up the line in the grocery store, even though you can just pay with your bank card!!!  I wish this didn't bug me, because not everybody has an ATM card, and nobody should be obliged to have one if they don't want one.  Same thing with old ladies who take forever paying their bill with exact change down to the penny.  I wish this didn't bug me either just because I don't think it's worth getting annoyed about, but it still irritates me!

Gas stations where they tell you "Please pay when done fueling."  You press the "pay inside" button, and the clerk yells like an auctioneer over the PA: "Pump 5, you're all set to fuel, please pay the cashier when you're done!"  The gas stations say this is to discourage "drive-offs" (customers leaving without paying).  I don't know why it bugs me so much, it just does.  I guess I don't like undue attention drawn to me in public!

Since it doesn't really bother me much, I'm curious:  Why are people so bothered by other people talking on cell phones?  In my opinion, it's the same as having a conversation with the person you're standing with.  Do people get annoyed with that?  The only difference is, you can't hear the other end of the conversation.  Maybe that's why people are annoyed?    ???  They only hear half the story?    ::)

Lots of them in town are shared pedestrian/cycle paths with a painted white line down the middle to keep the two apart.  Doesn't work.  The cycle path is only wide enough for one bike which is a problem when the traffic is two-way.  The pedestrian bit is only wide enough for two people side by side.

One of the paths I use is a route to the local primary school so there are hoards of parents and kids walking along it.  What a nightmare!!  I'm really surprised there hasn't been more accidents.  Luckily it has wide verges to swerve into when a little one is suddenly on your bit of the path.

When drivers cross into your lane when they're making a left turn.  What's the matter with these jerks, are they to lazy to cut the steering wheel enough to make a 90 degree turn?  Some times you're the light is red and you're going right up to the stop line, then some dope careens right out in front of you from the right at a 45 degree angle!

Certain people on AOL who are nasty to 'newbies' instead of welcoming them and helping them learn stuff like 'netiquette'....I was really treated like an A$$HOLE when I started on AOL...I think those people do it to test you and see if you're gutsy enough to hang in there...usually after a while they lay off and accept the fact you're there.

I am HUGELY patient with newbies because of my experience.

2.) Nasty People who want to indimidate you or bully you. You know I don't get it you try to be nice to people but they want to be nasty back? I don't understand it.

Yes....if I'm going to be nosy and eavesdrop, I like to hear BOTH sides of the conversation ;)

It only really annoys me when people are trying to get a better signal and lean over into my personal space.....then it's not so much the talking aspect of it, it's more the "get the heck away from me so I can breathe" and "stop yelling in my ear".  Or, if it's someone I'M with who is on their cellphone.  My best friend will do that....her boyfriend will call when we're having some "female bonding" time together (shopping or just hanging out) and she'll talk to him for 15-20 minutes, all the while, I'm standing there with my thumb up my butt trying to amuse myself ::)

Since it doesn't really bother me much, I'm curious:  Why are people so bothered by other people talking on cell phones?  In my opinion, it's the same as having a conversation with the person you're standing with.  Do people get annoyed with that?  The only difference is, you can't hear the other end of the conversation.  Maybe that's why people are annoyed?    ???  They only hear half the story?    ::)
When a couple of people are having a conversation and I;m sort of near them I tend to tune it out. If I am sitting somewhere in a workplace and 2 people are talking and I don't want to hear them I will walk someplace or go outside. Another thing that helps is reading a newspaper if you have one handy at your desk at work or maybe on the train. This way you are reading and if you don't want to hear a converstation you have something else to focus on.

I also felt bad about it later and vowed never to treat an innocent like that again!

"America's Most Wanted" has gotten a lot of criminals off the street.  I do admire Walsh for taking positive action instead of just crawling into a whiskey bottle.
BUT, and this is a big BUT, the right-wing is playing him like a two-dollar banjo!  See, there's this neo-McCarthyism out there consisting of vigilence, paranoia, and villification.  It sets a national tone of fear, suspicion, and self-righteous indignation.  What's worse is it distracts from the rich and powerful who do the systemic harm to society, and focuses all the anger on the perverts and the thugs.  The rhetorical tempest is all about us, the righteous good guys, who want to get the sickos off the streets, and them, the pinhead judges who let the pervos go.  Get people stewing about an Idaho pedophile and a "liberal" judge in Florida, and they may lose sight of the big picture.  The big picture is what the rich and the powerful don't what YOU to see!
Walsh is now a figurehead of this bogus Batman mentality proffered by Murdock media and lapped up by the gullible public.

I have no idea why she made the choice to cheat on her husband, but the guy she cheated with is a well known drug user and he is an alcoholic. He is a needle user, he has hepititus. If they stay together, garanteed, he won't be welcome in my house.

Paris Hilton- Just annoys the hell out of me. Famous for doing nothing.

Reality TV- Ugh...just...ugh.

Rap/Hip Hop- I've never been able to get into it. Lord knows I've tried.

Simple Plan- Just don't like them.


Paris Hilton, and about a thousand other Divas are in the same boat.

Reality TV, can't agree more with your statement about that.

Rap/hip hop - I have the same problem.  I tried a few times too seeing it was the thing "popular" kids were into, and when I know Hot girls like it.

Not sure who simple plan is, but on the other three things, we think alike.

I still marvel at how some guys don't get that one... i would go over to my friends houses and there would be crap everywhere.. and it was like, oh my mom will pick it up. Then of course we would be late going wherever we were going because.. 'oh i can't find my wallet'.

Now, i don't claim to keep everything clean.. in fact.. I am somewhat of a pig myself.. HOWEVER! It isn't difficult to just put the clothes in one pile.. or keep the tops of coffee tables and stuff clear.. saves god only knows how much time.

I have no idea why she made the choice to cheat on her husband, but the guy she cheated with is a well known drug user and he is an alcoholic. He is a needle user, he has hepititus. If they stay together, garanteed, he won't be welcome in my house.



Sounds like it's nothing but the best for ol' sis, eh?  I wouldn't let a hepatitis-infected IV drug user stay at my place either!  Those guys tend to case the joint for stuff to rip off later when they're broke and jonesing!  There are several types of hepatitis and some of them are quite communicable.  It's not a good idea to be intimate with a dope shooter!

There are, but they don't work worth a darn.  I guess you STILL have to answer the telephone or the phone still rings or something.  There ARE, however, services you can get through some phone companies (I know Ameritech has one, as does our phone company in IA) where the caller has to identify themselves before your phone will even ring.  Most won't go through the trouble.  If they DO, though, you can choose to play a recording that tells them to remove your number from their call list.

I'm also on the "do not call" list and I get more calls NOW than I did before I went on it ::)

Hmmm...I wonder why that is.  More often than not my voicemail picks up my phone.  I'm either not there or I'm screening calls.  There are lots of people I don't want to talk to!  I used to get messages from stuff like carpet cleaning companies, aluminum siding companies, newspaper subscriptions and "calll 1-900-DUMBASS to claim your prize!"  No more though.  I did have one company that used to say, "May I speak to the lady of the house?"  I'd say in my best LaWanda Page voice, "I is da lady of da house, you gotta problem widdat sucka?"  The guy would be all, "Um, uh OK, I..."  Then I'd start making lewd suggestions to him and he'd hang up! Heh heh!

When the doctor writes a scrip and tells you the problem will just go away...and it doesnt!

This is kind of nasty, but has anybody had a UTI (urinary tract infection)?  I mean like a REALLY bad one!  I never had one before, don't know how I got it, but the pain was EXCRUCIATING!!!!
My doctor gave me a scrip for bactrim.  Two days later the pain came back twice as bad as before.  I don't wanna get too anatomically specific, but let's just say it hurt so bad I had my teech and fists clenched.  I drove myself in a state of agony to the ER.  OMG was that painful!  YOW!  Of course, on the way to the hospital, every light was RED!

That's another thing that annoys me.  If you've ever had to go to the ER, you know at some point you're going to end up WAITING FOREVER.  Either it takes them hours to see you in the first place, or you end up sitting in one of those cold little rooms waiting for them to process your labs.  The frustrating thing is, you don't know how long it's going to take, and if you try to ask the staff, they treat you like you're a pest.

Anyway, at least I got the right antibiotic (Cipro) and some Vicodin for pain!

I was relieved it was just a UTI.  I thought it might be something...worse!  I was gonna drive over to my GF's house and read her her rights!

I can't imagine airshows without the USAF Thunderbirds and their colorful F-16's...yes they're warplanes....but to an aviation nut and airshow adrenaline junkie...they ROCK.  Same for the Navy Blue Angels and their F-18 Hornets.

Seriously, I may be getting a promotion.  My Supervisor gave her two weeks and I am the logical candidate to replace her.  I am Assistant Supervisor so I know her job, alot of the other workers want me to be Supervisor and I am the only other 40 hour a week person in the office.  She thinks the boss is taking a couple of days to talk to me because they are figuring out the pay.  The Vice-Pres told his assistant that they want me to take the job.  I just wish they would say something to me.  I would jump on this job in a New York minute.

When parents are REALLY mean to their kids.


I mean, I don't like kids that much...but GEEZ!!


These people came into the store I work at, today. The dad was saying such mean things to his son {who couldn't have been over the age of 5} like "You make me sick, just looking at you...get the f*ck away from me" and "No one even likes you...they never will"....he was being soo sickeningly sarcastic with him, too. He looked over and caught be giving him THE most satanic glare I could muster {Seriously, you would have thought smoke was about to come out of my ears....which, actually, would have been a nice affect--but ANYWHO}....He then stopped.

I've heard those type of so-called 'parents' making those type of jacka$$ed comments...Many of these parents seem to be younger...there was one that was in a CVS drugstore one time that I just wanted to grab her by the neck Fonzie-style..and tell her that what she was saying to her kids...they INTERNALIZE sometimes and it stays with them! Parents YES have a right to discipline their kid(s),but not by using nastiness...also 'catching them being good' and noticing,saying something nice when they do goes a long way.

My friend's mom never sleeps.. she sleeps from 10 PM to 4 AM.. then she wakes everyone with her loud voice, laughing and saying "You gonna sleep the day away?", and often, no one at his house goes to sleep until after breakfast, until lunch.. but she makes good breakfast, so it's worth it. ;D

Exactly.

I really didn't mean anything by it. It wasn't a personal attack on YOU. A lot of times I have a tendency of saying exactly what I feel. I suppose it's not the best thing, sometimes. But I will say this, I think you need to lighten up about certain things...including this. Getting all worked up about something as trivial as a comment about an emoticon, is just silly and pointless. Life's too short--There are much more important things to worry about....

When hooligans trash bus shelters!

Many roadside bus shelters in my town (Absecon) as well as in the neighboring town(Pleasantville) are targets of vandals..they smash out the plexiglass panels...break the seats and benches...and write graffitti,some of it if repeated here would get me kicked off this board(and TOSed off AOL!)...like those jerks have nothing better to do than drink that 40 ounce,smash the bottles to bits so everyone else can get their feet cut(not impossible if one wears flip-flops or sneakers!)..and then destroy the shelter so that no one has a place to sit and everyone gets hit by the hot sun...freezing cold..and pouring rain..

The towns are supposed to maintain the bus shelters even though NJ Transit puts them up.

I wish they could install hidden cameras at each one,not to spy on law abiding people, but to catch the nasties in the act!

Ocean City NJ's bus station/shelter has them....nothing gets torn up either!

They say it's because of "The State" or "a liability"...WTF! It is not trash..it's my stuff.

I wish I could tell them" hey it's MY bedroom not yours! and it's MY stuff THAT I BOUGHT WITH MY MONEY and as long as what I have is not ILLEGAL or IMMORAL I should be able to do what I please with it!"

I wonder why they control people that way. I think because they want us to look and be 'acceptable' in so-called normal people's minds. That's stupid. People are people. The world needs to learn to accept others 'as is' (as long as they are not a threat to society)sometimes.

I'm talking about people of any faith who are too blinkered to see when bits of their credo are provably wrong, and who keep on talking anyway.  Typically these would be Christain or Muslim.. though there are lots of both of those that I have a lot of time for, there's also a lot who use the Bible (or the Quran) instead of a brain, rather than using the brain that they presumably believe their God has provided them with.

And I couldn't have a list of things that annoy me without including them: religious bigotry probably annoys me about as much as all the others put together.
:D
You mean cyclists as opposed to motorbikers?  I live on a traffic light T-junction, just after the stop line on the main road, and there's a cyclist who comes past pretty much every day, straight through the red light without even slowing down... but then again, it's still better than Oxford, where the general feeling amongst cyclists is that road regulations are for cars only
I am a Christian but I don't shove my faith on those who don't want to hear about it. Anyways action speaks louder than words. Handing out tracts and spouting Bible verses is one thing: reaching out to others by volunteering and helping is another.

People who spend 5 minutes cruising the parking lot to get a parking space that saves them maybe 10 seconds of walking  ::)
People who walk beside the cart and pull it instead of pushing from behind (they take up more space and clog the aisles)  :D
People who hold up traffic in the lot by waiting for somebody else to pack their car and get out.  (When I see them waiting for me, after the car is packed I get in, turn on the radio, roll down the window, and SIT.  Then eventually when they give up, I immediately pull out.  ;D
People who leave the shopping cart out in the lot instead of putting it away at the cart area



That's all for now.  ;D ;D
People who are able bodied and use handicapped parking.
Same for bus passengers who use the front seats on a bus and won't give them up for a disabled person,a pregnant woman,senior citizens,or parents with young children.

I have a 'hidden' disability (COPD) as well as arthritis in both knees...when I ask certain people on the bus to let me sit down...they look at me and get an "oh you're not disabled you're just fat" attitude. What jerks.

Now we're talking!
PET PEEVES
1. Loser-y macho guys who own Pitbulls, Rottweilers, Dobermans, or German Shepherds.*
2. Loser-y macho guys who own the above breeds and can't control them.
3. Anybody who owns any dog he or she can't control.
4. Pet owners who treat their pets like people.
5. The above pet owners with resulting anxious, nutty, neurotic, ill-behaved dogs.
6. Dog owners who bring their dogs into shops and public buildings despite the prohibition.
7. Dog owners who leave their dogs tied out alone for 14 hours straight. Poor dog! :\'(
8. Cat owners who neglect the cat, resulting in a scrawny, scruffy, forlorn looking thing who
shows up on my doorstep looking for a hand out.
9. People who pick "pets" higher on the food chain than they: great snakes, big cats, wolves,
giant lizards, and crocadilians. This is just wrong!!!

*my problem is with the owners, not the dogs. In fact, a German Shepherd is one of my favorite breeds. Any dog gets nasty if it's raised that way.


About peeve number 4...yes I respect my cat Tika...and yes I treat her like a FRIEND...she's more than 'just an animal' to me. BTW she hates table food...she prefers her own cat food. But I don't shoo her off the furniture...she sleeps on my bed with me.  And she is well behaved...She knows not to take people's food, be mean to people, or get into trouble.

Thank you very much!! You have jumped 100 places in my esteem.

As you may know i am a fairly anti-religious guy, but i do try to respect people's faith. Your point about actions speaking louder than words is very true. I have no respect for somebody who spouts the bible and then dosen't live the life. However, i have all the respect and time in the world, for somebody who believes what they believe and then sticks by it by helping others and living a moral and good life.

Companies who think I am stupid. I'm sure many of you know that I collect coins. My latest obsession is collecting Morgan dollars. I joined a "Morgan club" through the Littleton Coin Co. How it works, is that they send me a Morgan dollar once a month. I can either buy it or send it back. Since I am under no obligation to buy the coins, I figured that I give it a go. I just recieved the first coin yesterday. At first I was disappointed with the grade of the coin but I do have some lower grade coins so I could live with that. But then I looked up the coin and discovered that they want me to pay more than TWICE of what it is worth!!!  >:(  Well, the coin is going back-with a note. I told them that I sincerely hope that future coins are of higher grade and fairer prices!!!  I will give them one more chance and if not, I am going to cancel my membership.

All you gotta say is "public toilets."  I avoid them unless I really cannot.  It's the one thing I hate the most about going to a bar.  If I have a couple of tall cool ones, I know I'm going to have to relieve myself or suffer for it later on.  My entire body tenses up as I go down that little fight of stairs to those dreadful johns!

Yep, yesterday we were sitting on the terrace of our favorite cafe with odeur-de-ordures wafting through.  I tried to ignore it, but Paul finally said, "boy, those dumpsters sure do reek!"  I know the ones by the Chinese restaurant are the culprits!

You don't have to tell me!  When I was a kid I was a sacker (aka bagger) at a supermarket.  Being the lowest on the totem pole, we got doled out some of the nastiest jobs.  After closeing, some unlucky sacker got the toilet detail.  A couple of times it was so nasty I flat out refused.  I told my shift manager he could b*tch to the store manager and have me canned the next day, but I was NOT cleaning those hell-holes!
It was scary enough they sent fifteen year olds in there without protective gear--rubber gloves and ventilators---it was seriously that nasty.  What the heck do you know whan you're fifteen?  I guess that's why they had us do it!  We should have been required to wear full haz-mat suits!

Jimmy Kimmel
Pamela Anderson

The Comedy Central "Roast" of Pamela Anderson hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.

I don't get it.  I thought a "roast" was an irony-filled honor bestowed upon an individual who had, you know, accomplished...
accomplished SOMETHING!  
A good candidate for a roast would be, say, Bill Mahar.  He's achieved a great deal, he's at the top of his game, he's influential, millions of fans respect his points of view and find him funny, he has a new book and CD out...
So there'd be irony when his colleagues got up there and said, "Hey Bill, you old moron, you drunken sot, you total goof-up..."  
Where's the irony in Jimmy Kimmel saying Pam Anderson has a bad boob job and likes to sleep around?

My Dell laptop has been lately suffering a nasty problem where I would randomly get a blue screen saying "KERNEL_STACK_IN_PAGE_ERROR" while working on it. This has been bugging me for quite a while and I've contact Dell about it, thinking that it would be a hardware related problem but when they tell me to diagnose the computer for problems I don't see any errors. They said it could be the software and not the hardware on my system but it still bothers me as I can't quite pinpoint the porblem.
Does Dell provide your laptop with a System Restore option?(my Compaq Presario has that option) Can you fix the problem by reinstalling the OS you have and all your software?

People on AOL who posted nasty stuff on a certain news message board about the plane crash near Greece..One idiot said he was glad that they were all foreigners,and that people in that part of the world don't deserve to live,they are all terrorists. And he posted that he would love to go over and bomb them!

People who make excuses for not doing anything useful with their lives. Especially those with mental illness who think they can't do anything but veg out in front of the TV,attend programs,and HAVE NO LIFE OUTSIDE OF THAT...because of what 1)their families 2)the staff atcertain mental health day programs and 3)'well-meaning' friends tell them they will always be that way,why expect anything else out of you? Why believe what those people say when YOU KNOW that's not true?

I have been told "you can't" so many times that if I had a dollar for every time I heard that crap...I'd be RICHER than Bill Gates!

I finally have mental health consumers and professionals who ENCOURAGE me to go for my dreams.

I am going to COLLEGE...something certain people in my past discouraged me from doing.

And some 'mental health professionals' think they know everything. What about the WILL to do things to better oneself? 'It's your life, YES you can better yourself in some ways!' Something that some of those 'professionals' don't tell their clients!

Well, if that's you in your avatar/icon thingy, then people are probably staring at you because you're pretty. :)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

People annoy me. Maybe it's me, but people boil my blood. I can handle the racism and the darker sides of the populace, but it's those little things that people do that annoy me. Chewing with their mouths open. Sucking their teeth and making that "sound." People that leave crappy tips at restaraunts. I'm not a waiter or anything, but it infuriates me when someone leaves an anemic gratuity for their server. It's like that person is saying, "Waiter, you're a piece of s***, and I can't be bothered by giving you any of my money after you have clearly earned it." People that think everything revolves around them. Drinkers that keep count of how many drinks they've had. I'm a drinker myself, but I've never kept a tally of the alcohol I've imbibed. Some say it's a "man-thing." Not true. I'm a man, and I can't be bothered with numbers when I have a pint of Guinness shoved in my face.

Speaking of drinkers, I hate those "pretty-up-the-drink" drinkers. Those that pour salt on their hand, lick it, then take a tequila shot followed by sucking on a lemon wedge. I get annoyed at others that pop a lemon wedge in a bottle of Corona, turn it upside-down and do the hokey-pokey, then claim that it "brings out the flavor." When I go out to drink, I want to do just that: drink. I'm not entering a f***ing liquor pageant; I'm out to either get s***-faced or just drink casually.

You made reference to people who leave crappy tips to servers.....I waited tables for about 4 years...and I can totally vouch for this.  You try and give everyone 100% service, but there are times when things happen, and usually it's due to the fact that the kitchen is behind, or something was wrong with the food, etc...but that doesn't stop the customer from taking it out on the server..therefore, leaving little or no tip. I don't envy anyone that does this as a living, as I hated every minute of it...and I am glad that I no longer wait tables.

Live in run-down delapidated trailer parks
Marry their sisters, brothers,or cousins
are welfare recipients
are uneducated
are all hicks and rednecks....
I usually ignore the comments but it gets a little tiring after a while.

Just how the h&ll do NASCAR haters think fans pay for race tickets,motorhomes,and all that fan stuff they have...NOT with welfare checks...Welfare would not even begin to pay for all that stuff.

We (and friend of mine and I) go to lunch at the same place regularly and have the same waitress. We usually leave her $5 each time-no matter if the bill is $25 or $40 (it rarely gets higher than that). At Christmas, we left her a $20 tip to show that we appriecate the hard work that she does, and great service we have had over the year-her "Christmas bonus" from us.

We (and friend of mine and I) go to lunch at the same place regularly and have the same waitress. We usually leave her $5 each time-no matter if the bill is $25 or $40 (it rarely gets higher than that). At Christmas, we left her a $20 tip to show that we appriecate the hard work that she does, and great service we have had over the year-her "Christmas bonus" from us.

that was really nice of you guys...I am sure she truly appreciated that! I had my "regulars" that would come in and treat me pretty well, and it always made me feel very important.

The hospital ER security guard who yelled at me for cutting him off when he was talking it up with some gal...I hurt my ankle and needed medical attention...and I had to take his telling me off like I was some slow-witted idiot..

And the female he was talking to for calling me a spoiled white b*tch.

This dumba$$ed security guard is getting reported to the hospital administration!

As for the female TRASH, she can you know what in her hat!

People that decide the ideal time for grocery shopping is FIVE minutes before the store closes. Of course we have to wait for them and then ring them up and be courteous about it all the time. Meh. :P

And being told that I could possibly lose my job if I missed yesterday. I have the flu. I went to work anyways. Guess who is staying home today?

Oh yeah, not so much annoying, but it does cramp my bedtime. My son has decided to be a night owl and he's STILL awake playing with his GloWorm. Actually he's chewing on the face of the GloWorm. ;D

....when you are driving down the road and notice that there are guys tarring/chipping the road and there is a car stopped in front of you, in which the driver is carrying on an in depth convo with one of the workers, and a long line of cars begins to form behind you, yet, they just keep on talking and taking their good old time! GRRRR!

I know what you mean on this one.

Someone(person A) told me that one of my neighbors(person b) was out to get me (to watch my back) and I checked it out to see WTF was going on. It turns out that person A was telling person B  that it was me that was out to get her(person B) :o
