Haha, I know this same idea was on Family Guy, but I thought it might make an entertaining thread...

So...what really grinds your gears? Just write about anything that you find to be really annoying in here.

I really hate it when I'm hanging out with people really late at night, and then 12 o'clock arrives, and someone says something like "Man, I can't wait for that football game tommorow", but really it's not tommorow as far as everyone else is concerned, but technically it is, since it's passed 12. It's like they say that just so they can feel so proud that they realized that its technically the next day.

People who like Family Guy.

I think someone people say they don't like Family Guy just for the sake of rebelling against something thats popular, and successful. I'm not saying you are, but I think a lot of people do that.

There is one thing I hate about that show, though. It almost like the plot is designed around the jokes, unlike the other way around.

It almost like the plot is designed around the jokes, unlike the other way around.

There's no "almost" about it. This is why Family Guy is absolutely hilarious in shot-glass doses of about 5 minutes each, but usually horribly boring otherwise. This is also why I can say that I like the show but I never want to watch it and am never in the mood to watch it.

totally seconded. this is gonna make me sound like an asshole, but let's face it: if you've lived in an English-speaking country for longer than 4-5 years and still can't speak the god damned language to save your life... you have a problem, buddy.

ugh.

It depends on what language we're talking about and what situation these people are in. If you're living in a mostly English-speaking neighborhood (like the two of you) and don't learn the language, then yeah, it's a problem. If you're like most of my family, however, living in an area where it truly is more important to speak Spanish than English (these places DO exist in America, y'know), then it really doesn't matter.

As far as businesses go, I say fuck that: you want to accomodate more people and get more money, learn Spanish your goddamn self. If people in the workplace aren't going to look at the social constructions that make it so that these people don't have access to the language in the same way, they need to cram it.

English majors who believe that juxtaposing 12 different oxymorons per sentence will make them seem "deep" or "meaningful".

English majors who believe that resorting to swear words and gruesome imagery makes their writing more "intense", "real", or "raw".

The majority of English or Professional Writing majors in general.

well, living in New York, i AM aware of that. =p it's the same deal as Chinatown or Flushing, or even parts of Greenpoint - people living there don't really speak English, nor do they need to.

but i am bothered by non-English speaking people having interaction-based jobs in English-speaking neighborhoods... and not being able to perform them.. cause, fuck, YOU CANT COMMUNICATE WITH THEM! asdlfgkn!!12

People who like Family Guy.Seconded.
Also:
-People who quote some kind of popular "indie" lyrics in their AIM profiles in a combination of 3 colors and "strategically" placed bold, italics, and underline.

-Indie lyrics in general. I hate how the goal has become to say small things in the most drawn-out, pretentious way possible rather than saying a lot in few words.

-People who use unnecessary ellipses all the time to make themselves seem more pensive.

-People who use high-beam headlights on well-lit roads.

-Having to go back to my old high school to watch my brother's basketball games and having to socialize with parents who I don't even recognize and my horribly annoying former Spanish teacher who loved me for some stupid reason.

-Driving behind Buicks. They're ALWAYS the slowest cars on the road.

-Bandwagon Red Sox fans. No matter how much people want to bitch about the Yankees, and yes, they are justified, there's no denying that the Boston Red Sox bandwagon is the biggest recent bandwagon in sports.

-People who are like "You're current browser sucks. GET FIREFOX FIREFOX its the most kickass web browser evar!!!!!11 8===========D " Shut up. Yes, it's a good browser. But did you design it? No. Did you discover it? No. Why do you fucking care? Besides, everyone knows about Firefox already. I don't understand the pleasure people get out of pimping it. Sometimes people just piss me off.

-Athletes who retire and think they're "going out on top." Also, people's lack of realization that this is stupid. Take Roger Clemens. He was going to retire after a good season with the Yankees. "Classy move, going out on top," said all the cheesedick analysts. But oh, wait! The guy stays for a couple more years in Houston and pitches two of the best years he ever has. How the fuck does one know that they were ever "on top" unless they've started to decline? I have much greater admiration for the athletes that stay in the game longer until they're stuck on the bench and can't get into the game.

-Finally, I try to stay away from racism and prejudice in general, but I can't deny that I kind of hate the following:
-Jews
-Indians
-Koreans
-Greeks
-The French
-Bostonians

That is all.

People who get angry at me at partys for being drunk just because they are to pussy to drink!! Fuck I cant stand them. Also people with extremely high morals which prevent them from having fun. I was at a party last week when a stripper came out and did a lap dance for a friend of mine at his 18th. 2 mates of mine went around the corner and refused to watch because its against their morals. They are 18 for Christs Sake!! No girlfriends or parents their to tell them what to do, I got almost depressed thinking about it.

Lastly people who don't act there age. I know it sounds kinda dumb coming from an 18 year old who used to spam, but last week an 18 year old guy at the party started (Without being drunk) throwing bottle caps at my head and blaming other people. That really shits me.

- Babies who cry constantly
- The stupid annoying teens who hang out outside ny house at night and are really noisy
- Spilling toothpaste on my clothes
- My aunt who keeps calling for my mom, but doesn't let the phone ring long enough for me to get downstairs and pick it up. So I run, pick up, and hear beep beep beep.
- Peoplw ho said unoriginal things like: "It's not carnival yet!" or "Hey, it's pippi longstockings!" when I had pink hair, and thought they were so funny and original, when actually I heard it 10 times a day.

macs are status symbols, and most people who buy status symbols are, deep down, shaking bundles of insecurity.

I guess, except I got mine because it was the only computer offered by Vassar College (we're a Mac campus), so it was either get this one on a loan that I wouldn't have to pay back till graduation, or buy a PC straight up. Hmmm, tough decision... :)

i wonder why Vassar (a pretty damn good school) and Parsons (same) are both relying on Apple computers! it's sooo weird how prestigious educational institutions are mac-based, considering macs suck and are soooo annoying and all! =p

hmm I grew up using Mac, and using windows.

I just don't like Apple much. Some of the stuff is pretty neat. I'm not bigger on Design than anyone else in Denmark, and as a nation I guess we are a little more interested on design than others, but I also don't have money.

And I just hate iTunes. I couldn't think of a more obtrusive program. It could be very neat to have, the database search function is so handy. However there are just so many annoyances related to it (somehow I would get the same song on it 3 or 4 times, for no explainable reason. It usually would open up 3 or 4 other processes for an iPod I never owned.)

No I'm happy with what I use.

Sunny

i don't think i've noticed itunes doing that. my complaint would be that it freezes when i plug in my ipod (for a few seconds, but still grrr).

the new itunes has a neat feature though.. if you click on a song, it recommends other musicians you might be interested in based on that choice.

Round 2:

-Frat guys who feel the need to throw up their arms and yell "WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!" everytime they return home from a night of drinking.

-People from north Raleigh who treat North Raleigh as if it were a separate city. It's basically the snobby, upper-class area of town, tons of golf courses, the works. But it's gotten really bad. They always make sure to point out that they're from North Raleigh, even if they're just asked what city they're from. It's like they want to secede from Raleigh. To make matters worse, our local newspaper has included a section for a couple of years now called "North Raleigh News" in which the front page story is always about the progress of some new shopping center.

-Chihuahuas. Fuck that shit.

-David Letterman.

-Southerners who prance on about "Southern hospitality." It doesn't exist. True, people in the South are kinder to strangers than Northerners. But if you're genuine around someone and actually try to connect with a person, I can almost guarantee you that Northerners will appreciate it more. My experience is based on being in New York. Sure, New Yorkers can seem kind of rough around the edges, and all Yankees are absolutely terrible in traffic, but if you're genuine around them they'll be genuine right back, while Southerners will more than likely continue to act super-friendly while trying to impress you.

-"Jungle juice," the common name for an abominable mixture of Everclear and Fruit Punch Gatorade, which seems to be the prevalent drink at most of the parties I go to. It's the worst drink ever. Plus, Everclear creates drunk people who do not realize how drunk they are. This is always a bad thing. I never, ever drink that shit.

-Orlando Bloom. Worst fucking actor ever.

-Those creepy commercials and banner ads for those obnoxious grinning smilies that make creepy sounds when you accidentally move your cursor over them. Even worse are those commercials for "TEXT 'SMILE'" or whatever the hell it is, for lame jokes to be sent to you via cellphones, in which the creepy announcer guy goes "THEY'RRRRRE HILAAAAAARRRIOUS!" and the creepy smilies make those high-pitched laughing sounds in the background.

"Driving" in rush hour traffic, or hitting every red light.

When I give my opinion on a subject or go on a little rant and people respond with "Wow, you've really thought a lot about that." No, you fucking moron - my brain processed all those information within half a second. It's entirely possible to work out the pros and cons of a situation very quickly, without spending half an hour pondering whether or not you want burritos.

Feeling very tired and being unable to sleep. Happened to me last night - I lay down, exhausted, at midnight thinking I'd hit the hay early... and ended up laying there, awake, until perhaps 4:30. I'm too stubborn to get up and do something productive so I just stay there and try to convince myself that I'm physically/mentally spent despite all evidence to the contrary.

That's just because in the middle of a relationship issue, I'd enjoy otherwise I guess.

Something else: chain e-mails (mails that say you should forward them to eternity or be punished be bad luck for your whole life).
...and people, who sends them

-Dial-up. Jesus, it is so frikkin' slow.

-popular cliques at school. Now that might be an immature thing to say, but they think they own the whole fuckin' school. You don't!

-People who, when you mention the Offspring, say, "Didn't they do that one song about the white dude?"

-New Simpsons episodes and the movie. Huge, retarded cash-ins. Not really all that funny anymore.

-As many people have said, buses.

-Valentine's day

AAAAANNNNDDD when my hard drive wipes itself out, thus deleting my novel-in-progress, all my fanfictions, and my beautiful pics from Resident Evil and of the Offspring. Grah, so angry...:mad:

-People who shove their beliefs down your throat.

-Wal-Mart. The customers never thank you for helping them and the supervisors don't do their jobs and keep you there half an hour overtime when you have a shitload of homework to do for the next day. (Yes, I still work there.)

-Valet parking. Lazy rich cunts can't park their own car and walk a few miles.

- People who enjoy "The Real World". How can you seriously not have anything better to do, than watch some idiots you don't ever wanna meet have dramatic arguments about the most pointless things?

walking towards someone who cant walk in a straight line! they zigzag all over the footpath then when they're about 10ft away decide they will happily walk straight into you ather than make any attempt to move out of the way!

the worst is people who walk in front of you in the street or in a corridor and just dawdle along either with someone else or on thei own but in such a way no can can get past them!

its the same when they are browsing items as well, some people stand so far away (well a few feet!) from the product they are looking at in shops that have isles, again in such a way you have to walk through their line of vision to get past as they let of a sigh as you do so. or you cant get past at all with as they block off the entire row!

My current pet peeve is anyone (though lately it's been a lot of women I know for some reason) who thinks they have themselves and/or life figured out, yet still wonders why they're so unhappy. The kind of people who speak in absolutes, yet wonder why nothing works out.

It's 'cause you're fucking wrong people. You're like, 20. Or 23. Or 24. Or something. You don't have yourself figured out yet. You don't have life figured out yet. It's all fluid. Everything's changing. You only know yourself and you only know life up to this point, but both are changing every fuckin' second, so stop wondering why nothing works out when your source of all evaluation is shit you cling to from god knows when. HAY I KNOW THAT THIS IS TEH WAY IT IS CUZ... shut the fuck up know you don't!!!

I swear to God I'm not talking about anyone in particular. That's like, a synthesis of things I've wanted to say to a number of people.

A skateborder in my gear factory.

That reminds me of:

Skaters who are like "man I hate society, they jut dont understand us!!" and are rude and ofensive to everyone around them because no one wants skaters doing their thing near them. Now come on, skating is loud as fuck and gets in everyone's way, theres no reason to shout abuse at some old lady who comes out her house and tells you to "please go skate somewhere else" because she is old and wants some peace. Skating is incredibly fun but not understanding why society hates the skating culture is just being fucking stupid. Go build a fucking ramp and rail and skate in your garage or something, or find a park, and if you can't do that, leave when someone tells you to go away you, fucking dickheads. I wish more nice people skated.

Well, what pissed me off lately is my going out to have dinner and getting gastro on the morrow.

And this lingering funny taste in my mouth - or is it in my head - that no amount of tooth-brushing will get rid of.

And those godawful nightmares I had.

recently ive found people have this habbit of starting conversations just as your clearly leaving the room or going out to do something.

for example, even though you tell them your going out or walk past them carrying a great big heavy box, you are half way out the door and they start asking you about things they saw on tv last night and going on about what they saw. to try and not be rude you make some attempt to continue the conversation but you really just think, do i look like im in a position to have this conversation right now?!

i know it wasn't your original point, but it just reminded me of something that, well, grinds my gears, you could say.

i'm totally having quarter life crisis or some shit. i feel like i should be doing more with my life. i should see my family more often, travel more, make more money, get a better education, etc. and like i'm very happy and grateful for what i have, but i feel like i could do more/better. i dunno what to do about it... i'm planning to go back to school (tymen4MBA) and move so i can see my family more often... so maybe that will help. or maybe i'm just a tard. erhehrher *kicks self*

another thing that drives me nuts is losing shit. which happens often. i lost an earring i really loved while snowboarding, and god knows finding a pearl earring in a snowbank is a rather futile quest. :/ i am a jackass for wearing nice jewelry snowboarding, but fuck. it was a gift too. ugh.

It's why I quit smoking up. It might be the best pacifier for when you just want to get away from all the shit, but it's also the biggest waste of time.

Sunny
02-25-2008, 08:11 AM
yeah, if you felt it was interfering with you getting stuff done, it's definitely for the best that you quit.

i just don't understand why i can't be satisfied with stuff. it's like, i was happy and proud when i got my BFA, but now it's just not enough. i was happy when i got my job, and i enjoy it, and i'm going to stay here for a while... but it doesn't feel like it's enough, either. i don't want to just be satisfied and sit on my ass because i know i could probably accomplish more. am i nuts? =/

I don't like it when there's an emergency vehicle with it's lights on and it's on the other side of the road, and people on the opposite side of the road pointlessly pull over a little bit. I'm sorry, but there ARE times where pulling over doesn't help the emergency driver at all.

I'm pretty sure there have been several threads on this topic that you could have bumped instead of your own four year dead one. Or you could have started a new one. Seems you only bumped this particular one to rag on a user who hasn't signed on in nearly as much time as this thread has been dead.

Sunny was nice enough and posted intelligent things. Didn't talk to her much, but what do I give a shit about her politics or lifestyle?

I haven't been paying enough attention here lately to know Lost's preferences on new threads, Melyssa, but I've also always come down in favor of starting new threads as opposed to necroposting when it comes to topics like this that are sort of timeless. If you make a thread with a good topic that has value to people other than you and bornlie, I seriously doubt anyone will give you any grief for it.

...being on a crowded bus, especially with a gaggle of yapping snobs dialoguing in the back of the bus. I have hypersenative ears, so they sound like they are two seats over. Also, I hate when I'm resting my legs on the seat next to me (I have injured knees) and people who are perfectly capable of moving one seat back, stop and look at me, expecting me to move my legs.
