Can we discuss pet peeves here?

Recommended Posts

Another thing you see often these days is the spark off the road in front of you because some butthole tossed his butt out the window at night. You hope it doesn't spark under your car leading to a made for tv movie explosion, but there's nothing you can do about it.

You honestly think a spark from a stray cigarette can cause a car to explode?

What the hell bro, yea! Didn't you ever see Chuck Norris movies?

Mine for the day:

People who don't understand the concept of an "up" & "down" button for the elevator. If you press both buttons and you're going down, an elevator on the way up will stop at your floor, this doesn't help you, idiot! Then you look like a complete maroon when the door opens, the 3 people in there don't get out, & you say "Durrrr, is this going down?"

At least once every other week :hot::rant:

I love when "heavier" folks take the elevator up or down 1 floor.

You could use the work...trust me.

Or circle the parking lot like a vulture until they find the closest parking spot.

It's why I said leading to a made for tv movie explosion. A vehicle carrying a load of trash hits a bump and tosses out a sewing machine that was sitting losely among the other trash in the trunk. Another guy on the side of the road a mile or so up spills a 55 gallon drum of paint thinner trying to get it out of his trunk. Another vehicle, like a mail truck, comes by and runs over the sewing machine and drags it along the road underneath his truck causing it to spark. When his truck reaches the paint thinner spill the sparks from the metal ignite the truck into flames.

Maybe the tossed cigarette butt sparks as it hits some paint thinner that someone carelessly spilled on the street causing a fire and the car following the butt tosser panics and stops his car on top of the burning substance. His car may be leaking a little gas in the fuel line somewhere and the flames ignite the gas in the line and tank. :shrug:

People who say "like" in every sentence and sometimes multiple times in one sentence. I took my granddaughter to softball practice the other day with one of her classmates (both are 14), and I swear I counted 74 "likes" from her friend in the 10 minute drive to practice. I won't let my granddaughter talk that way in my presence. I can tolerate it from a 14 year old (other than my granddaughter) since I don't have to communicate with them much, but hearing it from so called educated adults is sad. How do these people find jobs? I guess those who are interviewing them also say "like" a lot, LOL. It gets to the point where all you listen for is "like" instead of what they are trying to say to you.

People in the subway who stand directly on the "STAND ASIDE" sign in front of each door, then force their way in before people can get out.

People who eat potent foods on the subway.

People on the subway who blast their music so loud you can hear the drivers breaking from across the car.

People on the subway who lean in even closer to read over your shoulder.

People in the subway who sneeze, wipe their nose then grab the pole with the same hand.

People on the subway, period.

People at work who ask you to do things you've already done, which they would know if they could be bothered to read your email.

Corporate BS like SMART goals.

People who walk with an exaggerated arm swing. Extra bad if their hand is flapping around as if they have no muscles in their forearm.

People who use an extreme diet as an excuse to be anorexic. You aren't fooling anyone.

The heavy smoker in my office who tells me my diet coke is unhealthy.

People who assume you know nothing about a subject so they can blabber on and on.

Drivers who honk at other drivers waiting for pedestrians who have a walk signal.

People who throw trash on the street 5 feet from a garbage can.

People who spit in the middle of the sidewalk.

People who drive with their turn signal on permanently.

People who use e.g. incorrectly. Just stop.

Guys at the gym who walk around naked in the locker room.

Guys at the gym who will start a conversation with you while they are naked.

The guy at the gym who does his hair in front of the mirror, naked, with his feet out at shoulder width, swaying back and forth.

People at the gym who will kick you off a cardio machine after 30min because they couldn't possibly use one without a tv. There's a reason you're still fat.

People at the gym.

People who let their dog crap on trees/shrubs that have signs telling people to not let their dogs crap on the trees/shrubs.

People who bring their baby to nice restaurants. I am certain this will one day be illegal.

What do you want for dinner?

I don't care. Anything.

How about XYZ?

I don't want XYZ.

Honey, why is there a knife in with the forks?

Entertainment industry award shows. The last thing I want to see is a bunch of actors jerking each other off.

People on the internet who say your an idiot.

People who can talk about nothing but their kids. We really couldn't care less. Yes, your child is a special flower who is completely different and clearly superior to the billions who came before him. Here's your procreation medal.

I'm just getting started but have to go to a meeting.

I call someone and get their voicemail so I leave a message.

Them: Did you need something, was it important?

Me: Yes, that's why I left you a message.

Them: I saw you left a message but didn't play it, what did you want?

I have one friend that does this about 70% of the time and another 10% of the time he calls back as I'm leaving the message.

Worse than the message being "Hey, it's me, give me a call back when you can," and that's it? Thanks for clarifying, seeing your caller ID in my missed call list wasn't enough of a clue as to what was going on.

I hate it, I start doing the counting thing as well, which doesn't help the cause.

even worse is seeing it in like written form. I have seen way too many posts, messages, emails that have it in there. :wall:

Seriously. If it might kill you, don't order it. Or do order it, and let's let evolution take its course. People should be more willing to do their part for the betterment of humanity.

At my wife's workplace, they were instructed to NEVER pull the door open, always use the button. Apparently pulling the door is bad for the mechanism. Now if they have a choice between handicapped door and regular door, then sure, use the regular door. But I'm not so sure pulling a handicapped accessible door open saves the device.

Drivers who seem to have no depth perception. They stop 10 feet short at lights. They slow down way too fast with tons of space before the next car.

I often have to go around people like this to avoid pressing my brakes too hard, and I'm not a tailgater at all (always 2 seconds behind).

You guys need visual voicemail. Someone leaves you a message and you press a button to listen to it (no calling for voicemails). Even better, some visual voicemail apps put it in a text for you. So in 3 seconds you know what they said.

All depends on your carrier. My previous one was fine. It would download the message for you and it was just like playing an audio file. Now I have to call in to get a voicemail. Even with the password saved into the speed dial, it takes a good 2 minutes to listen to a 5 second message. Annoying as ####.

People who ##### about the price of gas going up. You mean it went up 10cents/gallon and you had to spend a whopping $2 extra at the pump???!!!

nevermind the same people usually follow that up by going in and getting cigarettes, lotto tickets or don't seem to mind spending $8/gallon on bottled water or soda.

Agree. I think it's the psychology of paying more for the same thing with no additional benefit for a reason outside of your control. It's nearly impossible to cut it out of the budget or shop around for a better deal.

I like it when they drive all over town trying to save 5 cents a gallon and then brag about it.

I do this.

If it's something that didn't need a conversation, then they would've texted. If it needs a conversation, I don't see the point of making 2 more calls (one to VM, one back to them) make that happen.
