That fantasy football leagues list points against as a main stat in league rankings. Like I had any bit of control over that.

Who are these people? Do they just really want to see someone else taking a dump?

I agree with this and it makes me think of something else I find super annoying: acronyms within acronyms. I can't think of an English example now, but the post service in Holland used to be called PTT, which stood for Post, Telegraphy, Telephony (translated into English of course but the acronym stays the same). At some point due to some privatization or whatever it turned into KPN, which stands for Koninklijke (royal) PTT Nederland. Still pisses me off.

Unattractive woman driving with her left foot resting outside the window (guessing to air out her vag region because her ****ty car doesn't have AC). Also, anyone that puts their feet up on the dash.

I wasn't previously aware of them. But wikipedia says they were created as a geeky joke, so I'm fine with them.

Isn't that just a word in Welsh, and in English it's only recognised as a place name?

Seems weird.

It's a bathroom shared by our floor. When you walk in there's a small room with sinks, trash cans, and paper towels. Go through that room and you're at what appears to be a standard public restroom with 2 urinals and 2 stalls. Only on the left there are 6 lockers up against the wall and on the right is a door that leads to a shower.

Don't ask me why, but all the bathrooms in our complex are like that. Maybe because there's a tiny on site gym too?
