Nine Things That Drive You Nuts

1. People who point at their wrist while asking for the time.... I know where my watch is pal, where the hell is yours? Do I point at my crotch when I ask where the toilet is?

2. People who are willing to get off their ass to search the entire room for the T.V. remote because they refuse to walk to the T.V. and change the channel manually.

3. When people say "Oh you just want to have your cake and eat it too". Damn right! What good is cake if you can't eat it?

4. When people say "it's always the last place you look". Of course it is. Why the hell would you keep looking after you've found it? Do people do this? Who and where are they?

5. When people say while watching a film "did you see that?". No Loser, I paid $12 to come to the cinema and stare at the damn floor.

6. People who ask "Can I ask you a question?".... Didn't really give me a choice there, did ya sunshine?

7. When something is 'new and improved!'. Which is it? If it's new, then there has never been anything before it. If it's an improvement, then there must have been something before it, couldn't be new.

8. When people say "life is short". What the?? Life is the longest thing anyone ever does!! What can you do that's longer?

9. When you are waiting for the bus and someone asks "Has the bus come yet?". If the bus came would I be standing here, dumbass?

Awesome idea! In no particular order...

1. Bad drivers: people who drive well below the speed limit, or are going slow in the fast lane; those who don’t use their turn signals; drivers who cut me off; and anyone that in general slows me down or makes me angry in some way.

2. When people leave the coffeepot empty in the mornings at work. I am useless without coffee, and I swear people do that just to piss me off. How hard is it to make another frigging pot?!

3. Messy and illegible handwriting. It’s so frustrating to not be able to read what someone has written. It doesn’t take a lot of extra time, and it shouldn’t be too difficult for any person to print slowly and clearly!

4. Doors, cabinets and drawers left open. Don’t ask me why. It has always annoyed me SO much. My old roommate used to leave our front door hanging wide open all the time, even in the middle of winter! That just blew my mind. My dad knows that this bothers me, so whenever I’m visiting them, he will leave the drawers and cabinets open on purpose just to get a rise out of me.

5. When my landlord’s son thinks it is extremely fun to run up and down the halls and jump around very early on a Saturday morning. I live in their basement, and he can be pretty noisy at times. I don’t mind him running and jumping around most of the time, but when it happens at 7am on a Saturday morning, and he starts to yell “Be quiet” to his sister, who is never noisy, I am NOT happy.

These are the biggest ones I can think of right now.

People who ask "How are you?" when they really don't care if you are fine or not or purple.

I'll have to agree with liars especially those that know you have all the evidence in the world and still can't cough up a confession.

Oh dear... I'm very nitpicky when it comes to certain things.

1. Poor grammar - I'm a self-professed grammar whore.

2. Stacking dirty dishes - I have no dishwasher, and stacking dishes just makes the job twice as dirty.

3. People who walk on the left-hand side, walk too slow, or in a group 4 abreast.

4. People who lie - I'd rather someone tell me the truth to my face than have to tiptoe around, worrying about me finding out.

5. Bratty children (and adults ) - If I were their mother, I'd teach them a thing or two about respect.

6. People who make their own rules - Don't park in handicapped spots if you're not handicapped (even for 5 minutes), don't make your own parking spots, don't be consistently late, etc, etc.

7. People who don't accept you for who you are / People who are judgemental

8. Potty mouths - F this, F that. I wish some people had larger vocabularies sometimes.

9. Disobeying the "busology" rules - Taking up more than one seat, not moving to the back, being noisy, not giving up your seat for the elderly, etc.

What can I say... I'm pretentious.

1. People who are always late for class.

2. Professors who keep talking and talking when the class period is over, like their class is the only one we're taking and we're not full time students with four part time jobs and an internship.

3. People reading over my shoulder or reading the computer screen while I type.

4. People that write with pencils and it sqeaks or makes noise. I dunno why, but there's something about that texture that makes me want to throw up.

5. Professors that are very patronizing because they always assume your parents pay for everything, like you're still in high school. This usually manifests itself when professors requires a new textbook costing over $100 halfway through the semester and then snicker when we dare to raise a complaint.

6. When my boss assigns me work orders with "problem clients" (people that are generally pissed off or people that are afraid of their computers) simply because I'm the only girl and he thinks I won't get yelled at by the client, or the client will be more receptive of me.

7. People that don't use their blinkers and people that honk or gesture at me for crossing the road going STRAIGHT when my light is GREEN while they are trying to turn.

8. People that work at Best Buy because in about 10 minutes, probably 20 of them will come and try to sell me something because I'm a girl and couldn't possible know anything about anything at Best Buy, even though I know exactly what I need. On the other hand, they just look at Phil and give him a nod.

9. People that chew with their mouths open.

2. Anyone who spits. It's just gross. Use a tissue or just don't.
3. Dishonesty. Period.
4. Crowds. People get stupid in crowds. Why?
5. People who don't pick up after their dogs.
6. Poor hygiene. There's just no excuse.
7. Disrespectful teens. And pull up your pants!!
8. Poor grammar/spelling SPELLCHECK: USE IT!!
9. Traffic or any kind of line. I can't tolerate this.
