the problem isn't that they're cheering for the team, its the reason why they're cheering for the team... which is usually because... everyone ELSE is cheering for the team. seems pretty toolish to me.

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

It was worse in the past but there are probably a lot. I absolutely HATE cats. I cant stand when people talk about things that are not related to what we are talking about or people that ramble on and on bout stupid ****. Those are just a few. Right now TWITTER is irritating the **** out of me I cant figure that **** out. People that are really dumb but think they're smart but don't know how to work.

I might be an outlier because most people seem to agree with you but I really don't seem to think its a big deal. Regardless of why they are cheering whats the point of being a dick to someone if they are taking joy in watching a team play?

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.
I nominate this post as crazy. WTF? How do you not understand the person you're quoting?

EDIT; OOPS wrong thread.

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

I think its fairly irrational, and borderline straight up rude of me, but I get really annoyed when my roommates come in a make small talk while I'm watching tv. A game or something obviously doesn't bother me, but if its a show I'm actually into, even a "hey, whats up?" really bugs me even when its just as they pass through.

Also, people who do dishes by filling the sink with water. My gf and one of my roommates do this and I hate it, and it seems like fairly normal practice.

You are gold when you aren't trying too hard GREAAAAAAAAAAAARRR. This is about as played out as OOT gets though, , breathe, don't try, and give us something good whenever you really have it, we know you got it. Preferably with pictures that involve scantily clad women with big asses. I mean, just a perk, really.

On that note, here's mine, the guys who jump into a specific law type thread with "WELL IN ESTONIA THE LAW SQUADRANT GIVES YOU FOUR STONES TO FILE THE SPECIFIC LIVEAGE REPORT LOLZ." Thanks dude, really helps the guys talking about some traffic violation in Minnesota. Awesome.

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

people who complain about things they don't use. myspace, facebook, and the current champ twitter. jfc move on already, we get it.

the person who relates everything to something in their life is a good one, though i'm pretty sure that is supposed to piss you off.

Yeah I can see how it would be annoying to constantly have to explain that the score is 735-468, the game has been going on for 3 days and that they will shortly be taking a tea break and resuming the match in a fortnight.

I would never say best buys, but now that you mention it I am guilty of saying potbellys. I would never say, "subways" or some **** like that, I am not sure at all why I say this with potbelly. I'm gonna have to do some serious life reevaluation.

Also 00T sucks so bad now b/c of the TV subforum.
