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

Also people who take any effort to make the fact that they smoke weed a part of their character. It doesn't have to be a significant part either. For example if under interests somebody has "420". Good for you, you smoke weed.

I don't get it, why would the professor know or care how many classes you choose to take?

Argh, the chewing food thing. A have a co worker who will take a sub, lean in, take 3 ravenous but small bites of the sandwich and then back off and chew. Why not just take a normal size bite and back off? He reminds me of how my dog eats.

I'll just come out and be a nit. With 100% certainty it was a conspiracy.

If the crazies are right then it was a vast one in which loads of government types conspired to set the whole thing up. In the much much much much more likely scenario where they're wrong, 19 hijackers and a ****load of other Al Qaeda dudes were in on it.

Also, even if you use a weird definition of conspiracy that involves something other than people conspiring to do something, there is obviously a conspiracy theory, whether it's correct or not.

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

That rant reminded me of something: the use of troop to denote a single member of the military. It's been going on at least since the start of the Iraq war and it still bugs the hell out of me. It's bad enough when it's plural "5 troops died in Iraq today" but it pisses me off every time they tell me that one troop died or was injured.

What? Why? Troop is short for trooper. I imagine that would annoy someone that served as a paratrooper, but I always read it as meaning a member of the Army. So, it annoys me when it was a Marine killed or injured and troop is used, and double so when Marine isn't capitalized, but I think its an accepted reference to a soldier.

For my part, people that religiously follow TV shows mystify me. But I guess that's their business and I don't find it annoying. However, when they TiVo, DVR, whatever said shows, I think they're idiots and need to discover the wonderful world of books.

Anyone other than a friend that prefaces a request with "I'm sorry to bother you, but..." Bull****. If you were sorry you wouldn't pester me. Just spit it out and spare me the charade.

People who make a big deal of their child's first birthday. We don't live in the ****ing Congo. It's not a big deal that your baby managed to stay alive for its first year. Leave me alone. I've got other **** to do.

Re friend: Definitely not just a joke...just somethin douchy that he does to everyone at times and everyone has mentioned how much it annoys them. I just thought I'd post and see if there's reason to be annoyed.

Another one: People that complain about people not spelling your/you're correctly on the internet. I'm pretty sure everyone past 3rd grade knows the difference....Thankfully im not in English class so I don't have to take the extra 0.3 seconds to hit the ' key when typing that word. That time is crucial on the interwebs.

This is the first I've heard of that. It is certainly an accepted reference to a soldier, though it annoys me none the less. I have always thought troop meant troop instead of being short for something. From Webster:

Quote:
Main Entry: 1troop
Pronunciation: \ˈtrüp\
Function: noun
Etymology: Middle French trope, troupe company, herd, of Germanic origin; akin to Old English thorp, throp village — more at thorp
Date: 1545
1 a : a group of soldiers b : a cavalry unit corresponding to an infantry company c plural : armed forces, soldiers
2 : a collection of people or things : crew 2
3 : a flock of mammals or birds
4 : the basic organizational unit of Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts under an adult leader
I think it's much more likely that it came from turning expressions like "I support the troops" which make some sense, into a singular, which makes none. Even if it is short for paratrooper it is dumb to shorten to a word that has a different meaning that could possibly make sense. Why would they not say soldier and instead say a word that means a group of soldiers?

More irrational hatreds needed imo.

I hate people who sneeze. I try my best not to, and am thoroughly disgusted with myself whenever I let one slip through. I realize that this is an unreasonable thing to hate, but f sneezers.

similarly, rabidly legalize it people. I'm pretty sure you get all the pot you want anyways, why do you care so much? You really think the US would be that much of a better place if you could buy pot from the government?

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

lol this thread honestly pisses me off because people get tilted so easily. People who use "that life tilts me" on the forums for **** like "oh ya he used the rail to go down the stairs" or something like that makes me wonder how much these people hate life.

i guess that makes me a hypocrite though.

also, i ****ing hate pencils, and I hate that fact that some classes make you use them. when i write it hurts my ears, and i don't know the correct amount of pressure to apply so im always breaking the led non-stop but i hate the pencil so goddamn much that i dont take actions to correct the amount of pressure i use i just keep breaking the ****er. mechanical pencils are aight

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

i hate how ESPN feels the need to add heavy metal guitar MAD RIFFS !!! over their game highlights. Whoever that guitarist is, he sucks. And, no, I don't need to feel EXCITED AND PUMPED UP!! by some stupid heavy metal just watching sports.

i hate the Viagra, FLOMAX, etc... commercials that are worse than prank phone calls.

i hate pharmaceutical ads that have disclaimers that practically end up saying: "Only take pyookitol if you are perfectly healthy and have this one and only symptom."

trent dilfer needs to shut up already.

mike valente -- detroit sports radio personality -- is a complete blithering idiot. all he does is bash, bash, bash, bash, bash. Yes, The Detroit Tigers will probably NOT make the world series. OMG EPIC FAIL, TIGERS!!! ( insert quirk diatribe here why sports is much more than just winning championships. ) I mean, if you don't LOVE sports, which this guy obviously DOES NOT, than WHY be on the radio?!

ok that's enough.

on the positive side:
love those awesome little $2 tortino's frozen pepperoni pizza!! yum yum yum

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

I don't understand how you can actually get annoyed by some of the things in this thread.

Take the TV example; sure they may be wasting time, but you are wasting energy and getting yourself into a bad mood over something that doesn't have any impact on your life.

Yeah, a lot of the things that people do are pretty weird and seem quite stupid/ pointless to me as well, but letting these things have an impact on your mood is crazy. Just let it go and worry about what you do with your own life.

Any clue why he feels the need to say things like that? He's always been considering kind of the **** blocking type amongst our ground of friends even if it's never negatively effected me. J/W if someone can get all psychological on me and tell me why he always does that.
how hard is it to say "dude shes ****ing fat, if i were to tap that the only thing id tap it with is a 20 inch skewer so i could roast her over a fire and feed all of africa for a week and a half."

Yea them too. ****ers. Who do they think they are, Kathleen Pigott? Especially when they're people who have tried it once or twice in their life and just want to be a part of something that seems edgy. It's borderline rational hate with them though.

Besides, taking that extra .03 seconds to prove you're not a retard is worthwhile. Few people will take you seriously if you can't spell past the 3rd grade level. Typos are one thing, but ignorance is another ball o' wax.

It must be annoying for the employees as well. Fast food chains should spend a little more money on the intercom.

Man me and my buddy ate these when I was like a junior in college and thought they were the greatest thing ever until probably round 5 when I had probably the worst stomach ache of my life 10minutes after eating it. ****ing cardboard with pizza sauce on it. Do not buy.
