Post your pet hates and secret fancies.

Post your pet hates and secret fancies, or something like that.

Post some stuff that you love, but would never reveal to anyone (until now!), or stuff that really gets on your nerves, but you can't explain why...

For me, I secretly love...kids junk breakfast cereal. Thats right, I can't get enough of the stuff. Chocolate Flavored Wheetos, Cocopops, Honey Nut Loops, Frosties, the lot!
Its weird, I don't normally have a sweet tooth, or anything like that, but I love kids cereals! I don't go mad for sweets, or chocolate bars, but when it coems to breakfast time. if its frosted, or chocolate flavored, or with marshmallow pieces, or covered in honey, then I gotta have it!
Maybe its becasue of my childhood. I was never allowed to have junk cereals as a kid. I don't mean that in a "poor me, I was a deprived child", spoilt brat kind of way, my parents gave me plenty of "goodies", but never any of that oh so funky cereal.

As for my pet hate: The abuse of Acronyms!

I hate it when people abuse acronyms. Such crap as "recurrsive" acronyms really annoy me for some reason. They seem very popular among people of the computer nerd persuasion. Take GNU, which stands for GNU's Not Unix. Or
PHP, which stands for
PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, which, when expanded stands for
PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor: Hypertext Preprocessor. Which stands for:
PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor: Hypertext Preprocessor: Hypertext Preprocessor...you get the picture.
Or when people pronounce the last word in an acronym, like "ATM machine". I mean what the fuck? You're telling me that you want to use an Automatic Teller Machine Machine? Or on a similar note, over here we have a bank, which calls itself "AIB Bank"...let me get this straight... you own a multimillion pound businees, and you decide to call it: Allied Irish Bank Bank!!??.
Morons, the lot of them .

No your turn. What do you have to confess?

My pet peeve is when people (who are totally oblivious) drive all slow in the passing lane and they back up 50 cars on the interstate. Argh!

One of my secret fancies is chocolate...in all its wonderful forms.

I hate getting irratated by simple inanement objects that don't do their job. Staplers that wont work, traffic lights that wont turn green, door locks that wont turn. Shit like that boils my blood.

I love taking the long way home so i can belt out a few songs in my car.

lets see pet peeves..

the loser that pulls out in traffic .. crosses two lanes to turn at the stree on the opposite side.. cutting off everyone and cauing a potential pile up..

the asshole that pass you slows down and turns..

walmart.. why you dont have enough money to get the item.. and the next day all 400 of the item in question is gone.. they use the cameras to do this i swear

the know it all behind you in a movie that talks.. cuz he got a sneak preview the night before.. (i have fucked up people for giving away parts of a movie ive been waiting to see)

the fact that walmart and other type 24 hour stores wont put out new releases on the shelves till 6 am that morning even though they are sitting right there in a box and its 2 am.. (true story was waiting for LoTR, dude was an ass cuz i was the frist person to try and get a copy and he was waiting for his friend to get there to buy the first 4.. i called the store manager over and informed him that his clerk was holding back a potential profit and he called me a fag.. he got fired and i walked out with my LoTR copy)

any fucker on a cell phone driving.. you do it? i dont care .. you fit in this instance.. you all should be arrested, body cavity searched and have your license removed forever.. they cause wrecks and they tend to drive slower than grandma..

a pool full of jell-o

No your turn. What do you have to confess?

Oh man I'm the same way, give me a box of either cap'n crunch berries, lucky charms, or anything with the fake mushed together, rock hard marshmallows and I'll have it downed in a day. I think this fixation has something to do with the fact that my mom stopped buying them for when I was little because I would eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner... mmm it's making me want some right now!


and I have way too many pet peeves to just narrow it down to a couple...But I can think of one off the top of my head... The people that are in front of you in line that will sit there and watch all their groceries or any items being rung up and then, when everything is rung up and totaled, then and only then do they decide to dig through their purse to first try to find their check book, and finally when they do find it, they have to take FOREVER filling it out! GROWL! I mean don't these people have ATM machine cards? (hehe) double growl!

I hate people who don't use their turn signal. I mean, c'mon...is it really that hard to move your finger an inch and flick on the blinker? If I was a cop, I'd never have a problem meeting quota. I'd write up every last one of you bastards.

Hey man,
Weetos is the crunchiest chocolate cereal because those hoops are jam packed with thousands of choco-riffic bubbles that give them a unique crunchy texture - so every mouthful is crunchy through and through.

Oh God where do I start...hating most things makes this a delicious task! I'll join everybody else in mutual pissed offedness at all the non signal using, close following, cell phone talking bastards that think the road was built specifically for them. For good measure I'll throw in the pricks that drive 85 on the straight stretches, then jump on their brakes at the slightest curve. That'll do for now, but warning...I may be back!

One thing that pisses me off is when people park where they shouldn't, especially those with their hazards on.

I'm sure that your car broke down sitting 3 feet from the door of the grocery store... parked on a no parking sign. Hey, while you're waiting for that tow truck, why don't you go do a little shopping? Great... Wow, now that you're out your car seems to be fine?

Evil people...

<b>liars & thieves totally top my shit list.</b>

i am at my wits end trying to get people to show up at my house to do remodeling work & then they do finally show up, they tend to eff everything up & i hafta hire someone else & try to get them <i>to show up</i> & fix what the first effed up.
<b>what? you people don't need to pay your bills or feed your kids?</b>
hurry up & wait forrrrrrever & then pull out handfuls of hair.

turn signals. <b>yes!</b> those who don't use them & those who do, but never turn them off.
i wonder if they remember to pull their pants back up after they take a shit...

assholes who see your turn signal to switch lanes & see that the road is crowded, but effing won't let you in.
(that happened to me today & then the TWO bitches drove by & gave me the look. wtf?) ever hear of road common courtesy?
AND a semi going negative miles per hour cut me off.
AND...or ferget it... the road was full of ASSHOLES today.

slow people. if you're not gonna speed up your pace, get the hell outta my way. thank you. bitch.
i mean people walking & taking up all the walking space.
okay, people who drive <i>below</i> the speed limit also irk me.

biogtry. closed minds. pedjudice. snobbery. know-it-alls who don't know their ass from a hole in the ground.

um... i'll stop for now. whew! that felt good!!

<b>fantasies...</b> hrmm...
well, i can't wait for this home remodeling to be finished. that's my biggest fantasy atm (oh, oops! acronym alert! )

a self cleaning house... oh yeah... wouldn't that be sweet? (creams self)

4-5 star hotels right on the coast. give me!!!

fantasies i aim to live in the next few years:
ride in a limo
ride in a hot air balloon
visit NYC

"fantasies i aim to live in the next few years:

berny, Ive done two of those (limo and hot air ballon). of the two, the balloon was the cooler, even though I only went up about 150 feet, for about 10 minutes, and the balloon was tethered the entire time. still, it was very cool

my limo ride was even shorter. one time a buddy of mine rented a limo for the evening to take his woman out on the town. he had it for four hours and wasnt scheduled to pick up his gf for an hour, so he had the limo guy swing by my place and pick me up and give me a ride to work. so, 5 mins later, we pull up in front of the pizza shop I worked at and the driver gets out and opens the door for me, like I was some kinda big shot or something. that was fun. you wouldnt believe the looks I got from the other employees.

havent been to NYC yet, but I'll get there one of these days, if only to test my driving skills against the most psycho traffic in the world.

Something like that..
 
Location: Oreygun.
Ok, I'm going to stick up for the people that don't turn their turn signals off! Well at least in older cars, fuck the morons in new cars that can't figure it out. I have a 99' Jeep and had an old 70' Ford pickup. While driving the truck, the blinker would shut off automatically when I turned right, but not left, so I would end up driving around like an ass with it on because it never made a noise and I was so used to it shutting off because of driving a newer car.

Also the cell-phone talkers. I talk on mine constantly. Driving, walking, wherever. Even tho I do talk on it while driving, I do hate people taht pay attention to the asshole on their phone more than the fact that they are driving. I guess that is just hypocritical, but I make sure to pay attention to driving first, asshole on the phone second.

I was going to keep posting in the defense of people that do what most of you hate, but I do most of them and that would be one hell of a post.

Regardless, I do share most of the peeves that you all do, it just seems that I have been known to do everything one time or another, and not because I'm retarted, it is usually to spite a dumbass that was doing any of the above. I mean, it makes it ok then correct?

all links to studies demonstrating that multitasking (mainly by cellphone use) causes dramatically decreased ability at both tasks. It's safer and easier to do one at a time. Just pull over.

really. cellphone use, eating, reading, any task that divides your attention when driving will seriously affect your driving skill. I was told by my father, the doctor, that with 1 passenger in the car, the chance for an accident rises 200%. By the time you get to 4 passengers, you are 800% more likely to get into an accident than driving alone with a clear head.

I would have been more convinced if you said "my father, the insurance adjuster". That statistic just doesn't sound right anyway. It's just too linear.

I think your driving is more impaired by getting angry at the guy next to you for talking on the cell and driving, then the guy talking on the cell. If the guy hasn't done anything dumb yet, why bother getting pissed at him.

Why am i so argumentative?

i felt it gave weight to my arguement, so a big :P to you.
I just feel very strongly against almost any multitasking when driving- I can't tell ya the number of times I've seen a car ahead of me drift because they were paying more attention to the passenger than the road. Not to mention the other three thousand other extra things drivers do when they should just be driving. This is my pet peeve.


How did you know my father was an insurance adjustor as well?

and in cerimonious tradition of the nonsense forum I present you with....
