Re: Things that shouldn't piss you off, but do.

* the sound of computer typing from people at work around me or on TV commercials. ( just drives me nuts -- which is a very bad thing -- consider i type on a computer all day. )

* the whacked out, stupid, Metallica-type horrible music played over every single sports highlight on ESPN. ( omg -- I'm getting all excited watching these highlights!! AND I DON'T KNOW WHY!?!?!?!?! )

* RADIO DISCLAIMERS!!! Thank you, ABA, for convincing Corporate USA that by saying "whilelimitedsupplieslast participatingdealersonly voidwhereprohibited notresponsibleforanydeathordismemberment donottakewithalcohol donottakewithkittens donottakewhiledriving/working/thinking/drinking/" This, somehow, reduces their lawsuit risk? Nobody can understand it anyways... Think of all those living in America where English is their second language. Think they catch any of this drivel?

Re: Things that shouldn't piss you off, but do.

Listening to anybody eat. It doesn't even matter if they chew with their mouth closed the sound is revolting to me. Whenever I go out to eat with people I work with or friends I always suggest a place with a moderate amount of ambient noise so I don't have to listen to that sound.

Re: Things that shouldn't piss you off, but do.

Everything to do with facebook. even when a DEATIVATED my account - that's right, iim not even allowed to fully delete myself form facebook. oh and i will never do that twitter ****. tweeting? like....wtf no thanks. dave hodge on tsn is a retarded dinosour who needs to die or just remove himself from tv. and i probably hate the calgary flames so much it probably isnt normal. also i hate stupid humour. actually what it is, is that i actually have hatred towards the people who find that sort of humour funny.

Re: Things that shouldn't piss you off, but do.

ppl that always gotta go hi how are you to everybody. its not a social function or anything. too much nice really really gets to me. also when your at a gas pump and someones on the other side and so the pump goes really slow. when in a porno its all goin good and all of a sudden they show a long shot of the dudes face. wtf man. the porn is clearly chick centric hence the girl dancin around for a second in the beginning. what the **** is up with showing the guy. im trying to pretend im that guy here. geez. some people apologize too much too. the british version of the office. so much stuff bothers me. when i cant find the droids im looking for. lots of things piss me off that i do all the time too. when people are ordering food and want a bunch of stuff on or off it. any time ppl who smoke weed act like they're in some sort of special club. i smoke a lot of weed so i run into these people sometimes and its infuriating to hear someone say how high they got and every story or thing starts with so i got high and...

you open up chips and there's only chips in the very bottom of the bag. come on. when you go to drink a soda and its actually a can of urine. every beer can or bottle top that says you won go to this website. you go and you gotta fill out some bull****. FILLING OUT INFORMATION ON EVERY SITE. every ****ing thing i wanna do its like hey start an account. sucks. i wanna read some article the other day it says hey start an account.

it makes me mad that the fax machine is still around. they are so ****ty and are always ****ing up and not sending things through or accepting them right. i saw a solider who got his legs blown on in iraq and they had legs for him and he could walk around and stuff. and they cant make a fax machine work right? seems at some point for however long those have been around it would have evolved. with emailing/scanning and the **** phones can do now i wonder why the fax machine isnt better/obsolete.

when cats gotta stick their asses right in your face. i know i know they're saying they trust you or whatever but come on cats. people arent down with that. when people hate on or make jokes just for shock value about retarded people. when you sell a guy a quarter sack and he's like oh i dont have change can i owe you. lol.

tons of this stuff is stuff that probably doesnt fit under the strict definition of 'things that shouldnt piss you off...' but as you can tell im very angry and im trying not to sweat the small stuff. of which all this **** is. sucks being so annoyed and frustrated with everything. im like larry david except im not funny, rich or bold enough to do anything about it.

Re: Things that shouldn't piss you off, but do.

People who get massages at the poker table. They always slow the game down, its tough to see if they're in the hand and how many chips they have, they gotta sit backwards and take away some of my nut room, and they always seem like they enjoy it a little too much. I suppose the average douche who does this is probably worse than the average player, but so is the average smoker and you can't smoke at the tables

News people that make up new words - serial bank robber, serial rapist.

We all understand serial murderer. But WTF is the difference between a bank robber and a serial bank robber. Tilts me to no end.

Re: Things that shouldn't piss you off, but do.

Ok, but how many people rob just one bank? Those that get caught the first time.

Same goes for a rapist.

So am I a smoker or a serial smoker?

Re: Things that shouldn't piss you off, but do.

I often call in a breakfast sandwich on the way to work, and there is a woman who cuts me in line fairly frequently. She clearly has no manners, and I should ignore her but she will even walk right up to the guy as he is ringing me out and hand her lotto tickets or scratch offs to be checked as I am paying. This happened a few times and I ignored it.

The last time she did it I said "excuse me, I was here first" and she got defensive and said "my kids are in the car" with a tone that implied she was entitled to go to the front of the line. What pissed me off worse was that even after I said that, the guy ringing me out (store owner) proceeded to start getting her scratch offs. I left the sandwich on the counter and walked out, haven't been back since.

Maybe I overreacted, unsure.

I don't think so. Who cares if her idiot kids are in the car? Moot point. She's a rude, self-righteous, self-entitled weasel. With any luck, she turned the air off, it's 110 degrees outside and they die before she gets back anyways. Problem solved.

I wouldn't go back either.

[QUOTE=Gobias Ind.;14071288
My sister and her bf constantly talking to me about South Park episodes, when I've told them on no less than 10 occasions that I don't watch the show. I've literally seen 2 episodes in my life, and I just can't relate. So stop ****ing telling me who did what last week, b/c I'm forced to fake smile about it since other people are in the room. I'm not going to be a dick in front of others, but I've told you in private, nicely, that it's just in one ear and out the other. I DON'T WATCH F'ING SOUTH PARK!

Restaurants not putting prices of alcohol drinks on their menu.

Adult men who use or talk about things that happen on MySpace or Facebook.

People who talk about their cell phones/gadgets.

ugggghhhh, this. Although I think this should legitimately piss you off. I mean, is this drink $6 or $10? Who the eff knows?

It's called "chain smoking" and if you're lighting your next cigarette within a minute of putting the last one out, you're doing it.

Chain smoking is really awful for your health though. My uncle was a serial chain smoker and he died of emphysema at 53.

People who crowd around the baggage claim as closely as possible, preventing anybody else from seeing or grabbing their bags. If everyone stood back 5 feet you could easily spot your bag, dart it to grab it, and be out of the way in mere seconds.

This is annoying and should piss you off.


Other things that people do at airports..

Act like idiots getting off the plane...

Act like idiots waiting in line with baggage.. Wanting you to get up as close as possible to the person in front of you, even though the line's not going anywhere..

Re: Things that shouldn't piss you off, but do.

I'm careful with this stuff as I'm aware of the projection phenomena

I am gonna say though

-People who do charity for self promotion

-Materialism

-The "cashier girl" persona

-Peer pressure

-Facebook politicians (no one comments anyway, I guess they must be pissed off too)

-Atheists who debate against religion every chance they get
