What really annoys you?

Sitting here thinking about my pet peeves and the things that really annoy me. People who feel the need to be so ignorant and stupid bother me. You know those people... the ones that can't understand directions no matter how many times you give them. The people who do the same thing over and over again even though they've been told by many others that what they are doing is harmful. I have students like this. No matter what they've been told about sitting with the chair on two legs (instead of all four), they continue to do it (just an example).

What are your pet peeves? What really annoys you?

I hate when people choose usernames that can never be pronounced.

It drives me nuts to see a hot chic smoking or doing drugs.

I almost go insane when I'm at the grocery store and someone is paying whith a check. These morons always wait until they have their total to even start writing the damn thing out. They coulda had almost everything done while they waited in line for 5 minutes. Old people that pay for shit at the grocery store with a mountain of dimes and nickels. Just go to the bank and trade that shit in on some paper for christ's sake!

Slow servers. I'm on a dual DS3 connection and I'm used to pages loading in less than a second and when they take forever to load, it can be pretty annoying.

And the paying for groceries with a check annoys me too! I always either pay with cash or credit (or check card) just to hurry the hell up. I've only written like two checks so far in my life (I'm 19)..

That's the million dollar question.

1) People who build their careers out of criticizing other people's hard work.

Those who can, do.
Those who can't, criticize those who can.

2) People who leave their phone numbers on voice mail too fast at the end of a looooooong message.

3) People who think it's their God given right to act like an asshole on the Internet, simply because they cower behind their keyboards and use anonymous nicknames.

4) People who donít think their software piracy is actually stealing. Pirate if you must, just donít tell me what youíre doing isnít stealing.

5) Bad parents, who blame violent video games for the corruption of our youth, yet couldnít tell anyone what their children are up to at this very moment.

6) Protestors who think that tossing a mailbox through a window, or spraying graffiti all over a building is making a political statement.

7) People who abuse statistics to garner favour to their cause. That includes just tossing a news article that talks about a statistical study into the pile, and stating ďVoila! I have succeeded in proving my pointĒ

8) Brett Hull. He's not a pet peeve. He just pisses me off.

Oh, and another one: people who drive slow in the left lane of a two lane (each direction) highway that won't get over when you come up behind them, even if it is perfectly clear in the right lane.

Sometimes I wonder what would happen if I were to just ram into the back of them. That'd teach 'em :evil: (ok so not really, but it does annoy me).

What annoys me is people who can't follow simple directions. This one is a little like JadziaDax's except I can't say anything about people leaning back in chairs because that WAS me. (and half the reason I did it was because it anoyed the teacher and I never had a chair fall down or break under me. Unless you are leaning waay back or weigh 300+ lbs or its a REALLY cheap chair it shouldn't happen) But were I work now I have to help people work there directv systems and I understand not everyone grasps electronic equipment the same way I do BUT come on. Its not that hard when I tell you to go to this option in the menu screen all you have to do is hit the down arrow button twice and hit either the select or ok button. This is not rocket science people. Another thing that bugs me is when you get into a debate with someone who does not know what they are talking about. You can disagree with me all you want but when you just simply do not even know the facts. This is mostly drug related and I am pro drug legalization for a number of drugs so of course alot of people want to argue with you and 95% of their arguement is "well... its illegal". Anyway.

OK,OK - I admit it was more a wish than actual action, and I'll edit my post to reflect that.

And, BTW, I <i>have</i>, on many occasions, waited by the car to let the owner(s) know how I felt. Same for when they're in Handicap spaces.

That being said, I would respectfully suggest you evaluate your particlar way of expressing your opinion on this board. In one sentence, you called me petty, childish, and stupid - <i>and</i> questioned my manhood. There are ways of expressing your feelings other than name-calling. This isn't <i>Fark</i>.

A simple "Dude - that ain't cool." would've sufficed

whats more annoying, the people who wont use their turn signals, or those that wont cancel the signal after a lane change? you know, the ones who leave it on for like 15 miles at a time.

my biggest pet peeve is tailgaters. I FUCKING hate people who tailgate. am I the ONLY one on the planet who remembers the old rule? ONE car length for every TEN miles per hour. At highway speed, that means 7 fucking car lengths between you and the car in front of you. Hell, these days you're lucky to get 7 feet.

one of these days i might just mount an oil spill device under that back of my car. maybe if one of these morons wipes out on 10 gallons of oil at 65 mph they'll get the friggin message.

Pet peeves: people who stop in the middle of the aisle to talk to someone at the grocery store/mall/other store and block up traffic on either side of them.

People who talk on cell phones while obviously with another person, neglecting the social opportunity sitting right next to them.

People who blame society and the educational system for their childrens problems and then vote to cut taxes to said educational system/social welfare system.

Parents who bitch about how expensive college tuition is getting when they either a) don't pay a dime of their child's tuition, and/or b) have voted to cut taxes to the educational systems in their state.

People in ungraduate requirement courses that are in my major who waste all the professor's time asking stupid, meaningless questions because they can't be bothered to listen or go to office hours.

People who whisper while surrounded by other people, not letting people in on that part of the conversation. C'mon, be considerate. If you can't say it in mixed company, wait and say it when you're alone with the other person.

Lack of personal responsibility really makes my blood boil, also. Like that bloke who tried to sue McDonalds because he got fat. Uhhhm. Riiiight. I'm an obese person, and I don't blame anyone but myself for it. I don't blame society, or my parents, or the fast food chains, or my cat or anything like that.

Same thing with people who blame society/video games/music/tv/movies for their kids doing idiotic things. My parents were nice enough to have a talk with my brothers and I about not doing the silly things we saw on television, instead of waiting until someone set my pants on fire to worry about it and say "Oh, damn it to hell! That damned television made my kid do something he/she ought to have known better about in the first place!"

It also angers me to see parents neglecting their kids. I mean blatantly. I know it's impossible to have an eye on your kids every nanosecond of the day, but I have seen some outrageous things. I was riding the bus home from class last summer, and there was this little kid outside -all by himself- with nobody looking after him at all. He was on his little tricycle and was sitting at the edge of his driveway, trying to touch the bus as it raced past him. This little boy could not have been older than 3, and there wasn't a soul around anywhere. Nobody in the yard watching, not even looking out the front door or window. The neighborhood was almost desolate, and this little boy was just wandering around to get hurt/killed/whatever. Things like that make me sick.

I personally don't intend to really ever have kids, and I don't profess to have all the answers (I'm only turning 20 next weekend, so I certainly don't know everything!), but common sense would say that people should -not- let their kids wander around in the street unsupervised. I'm sure if that little boy had been hit by the bus, the parents would have sued, and nobody would have asked why he was in harm's way like that in the first place.

Uh, whoops! Went off on a huge tangent. Sorry.
Sex is not the answer. Sex is the question. Yes is the answer.

Actually, this is a bit difficult to classify as stealing in my books, based on my current circumstances anyway. I earn enough money to pay the rent/bills, and i have a little bit extra for food/going out once in a while. If i had to pay for my software, I would be flat broke very very fast. And, given the ultimatum between paying for software and not having software, id pick not having software.

If i didnt have software at home, i could use the uni computers to do what i wanted, so its no real biggie, and im not costing the company potential money by not buying it. Additionally, when I "pirate" software, I am not denying someone else the ability to go and buy it, so it doesnt really constitute as piracy either.

People who will not acknowledge a problem, and attack the symptom instead of the cause, or a side effect.

-Drug abuse is almost never the problem itself, it's related to poverty, lack of real parenting, depression, kids just wanting to fit in so badly that they'll do anything, and things like that. It happens because a real alternative to living life as it is doesn't exist for people.

-Violence is not inherently caused by caused by music, movies, and TV. If a kid is brought up by parents who make sure they let him know that violence is only acceptable in fiction before they let him see and hear about it, and he isn't mentally ill, he will be able to make the right choices. A child who has had a history of depressoion nad psychosis should be taken care of and watched. If parents would take some time to think, they would realize that a psychotic teenager using a pipe-bomb as a paperwieght is a serious problem. Like Eminem (who I don't usually use as a reliable source) said, "... some kid's getting bullied/and shoots up his school/and they blame it on Marilyn [Manson]/ and the heroin/where were the parents at? ..."

The turn signal thing


Slow people in the fast lane (they can now get ticketed for it in IL)

People who park cars across multiple spaces. I have a hydraulic jack with wheels, and my brother and I are not afraid to use it to move them (without damaging their vehicle) into only one space. I propose a law that makes the punishment for this offense as follows:
"Any person who parks a passenger vehicle in such a way that it occupies more than one designated parking space, shall be punished by the following: A law-enforcement official shall determine which space the majority of the vehicle occupies. Any portion that is outside of that space will subsequently cut off and welded onto the top of the vehicle in such a way that it will not prevent adjoining spaces from being used, and that it will not prevent the vehicle from leaving the parking area. Any material that cannot be welded onto the vehicle without violating the above conditions will be impounded and assessed a storage fee not to exceed 100 dollars per day. No legal or financial action may be taken against any person involved in the enfocrcement of this law, and insurance providers are not compelled to reimburse customers from damage to vehicles resulting from the enforcement of this law.

I think the most annoying thing that can happen is not having a good shower in the morning. If there is not enough pressure, that it just drips down... That will seriously piss me off.

Then people who don't know the road code. Like the "right-of-way" rule. You stop to let them go, and what do they do... nothing!!!

Or people that come up behind you on the highway, and start flashing already a km behind you for you to move over. I can't stand people driving unneccesarily in the left lane, but don't flash, that's even worse!
