Very Simple Things That Drive You Crazy!

Sun Jun 12, 2005 6:45 am

As a follow up to ArmitageShanks' thread about very simple things that make you happy, what are some of the stupid things in life that drive you mental? Like annoying habits, quirks or events, that SHOULDN'T annoy you, but do.

For me, I'd say:
1. Toyota Corollas (the cause of all road-rage).
2. Unreturned emails.
3. Misuse of "me, myself and I" grammar rules.

In the order of importance:

1. Vernon drivers (the drivers in this town are soooo stupid!)
2. The "express" check-out at the grocery store, it always seems to take the longest!
3. Cellphone ringtones. It's a freakin' phone, it's supposed to ring, not play annoying music!

1. People who don't use their indicators whilst driving !!! ARGGHHHH.

2. People who walk slowly and then walk diagonally too so you cannot walk past them in narrow places.

3. People who sit in the middle lane on the motorway when the inside lane is clear.

4. People in the queue at security who leave it until they get to the front to then empty out their junk from their pockets and take off their jackets etc.

5. People who stand in the doorway on busses/trains so nobody else can get on or off.

Man alive - some things that drive me nuts:

Canadians who use american grammar/spelling -- uuugh!
Canadians who use the old fashioned imperial system instead of metric -- uuugh!
Guys who wear white socks with black pants or black shoes.
People who keep averting their eyes when talking to them.
Guys who spit in urinals... yuck.

1. incivility
The door of the elevator in my building is terribly slow, meaning that every stop takes about half a minute. Yet, some people feel the need to use it for the infinite distance of one floor, press all the buttons when they leave the elevator just to annoy others, press "3" when I'm going to "4"... Hello? Are you not able to take the stairs to your floor from my floor like I do it all the time? Also, I find smoking in the elevator extremely rude and reckless.

2. the annoying kids in my building
They seem to be unable to communicate in any more silent ways than repeatedly yelling what they have to say.

3. My neighbour
and his habit of listening to that shitty song "Lonely" at a volume sufficient for pschological warfare, over and over again. Apocalypse Now anyone?

4. RINGTONE ADS ON TV!! They make me want to KILL!

5. mobiles ringing during lectures, seminars and whatnot

6. fellow students who are unable to shut up for just a minute

7. "holier than thou" nuts

8. riced-out cars waking me up in the middle of the night

9. unfounded unfriendliness
Prime example: certain bus/tram drivers, are these people paid to grumble? Do they get a raise for closing the doors just a second before you can hit the "open" button, when they must have seen you because you sprinted across the track right in front of them?

10. their/there/they're-impaired a.net members

11. some of the food at the uni refectory/cafeteria

12. When I forget to take and take along the antihistamine on a pollen-infested day. "ATCHOOOO! No thanks, I'm not sobbing! Do you ATCHOO have a ATCHOO hanky? I've already used up the two packs I brought today. ATCHOO!"

13. accidentally zapping to one of those afternoon talk shows

14. movies featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Silvester Stallone and the like
Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.

Ok, here goes:

1. When people press the 'Door Open' button on the tain frantically before the train is anywhere near stopping, as if they are going to open!

2. People that use the train or bus to ring up their entire phonebook and then speak very loudly!

3. People who must be deaf because they have their steros so loud that anyone within a 30m radius can hear them.

4. People trying out their ringtones like its some alien feature they've not adapted to.

5. Bus Drivers that don't stop, or when they do, insist on slamming on the brakes so hard it sends every Granny flying to the front.

6. Know it alls

7. When my camera battery runs out timed perfectly with something rare passing!

Just a few of my pet peeves,

Ok my choices;

-Montreal (insert your own city of choice here) drivers who have no concept of the rules of the road and think they are the only ones on it.

-Montreal roads - pot hole heaven...
-Roads with lines washed out by winter... basically all Montreal roads...
-Green arrow lights at intersections which stop you when there is no traffic and go green when traffic finally arrives... so basically all Montreal traffic lights...
-Drivers who don't signal when changing lanes - basically most Montreal drivers.
-Unsynchronized traffic lights - basically most if not all Montreal main arteries.
-Sudden road signs (warnings, street indicators, exit notices)... basically all Montreal road signs.
-Road contstruction (ie: annual sites for construction worker trainees) - basically all Montreal roads and/or bridges...
-Roads that are for everything but cars (bike lanes, taxi lanes, reserved lanes, bus lanes)... basically all Montreal main arteries..
-SUV's & Pick up trucks or more precisely being behind them in a car... or being in front of them when they are rearing up my bumper at 130 kph..
-The Grand Prix Formula One.... damn, I wish one year they'd just hold it on one day on say an island in the St Lawrence instead of everyday all through the city... (PS: Go Villeneuve!)
-VW Golf & Chevy Cavalier drivers - they are from another planet apparently

Basically I don't like driving in Montreal LOL...

3. Unfriendly bus/tram drives plus bus drivers that are incapable of waiting an extra 3-4 minutes, when the train is running late

4. People who can't tell the difference between "their, they're and there"

5. Having to sit next to a smelly student that can't even bother to take a shower in the morning... eeeck!

6. My neighbor's that complain every time I'm practicing the drums

7. My French teacher

YES!!!! I'm from GRR and I see that all the time. How much time do you spend in GRR, jetjack? On a layover I presume? Why do they do that here? It is really gross. I also hate people talk on their cell phones and hold it way out in front of their face, especially Nextels with that Direct Connect thing. Or when people don't use their turn signals when they drive. It isn't that hard to flip that little lever on the steering column.

1. People not using indicators when turning...arghhh!!

2. People who drive wayy below the speed limit in the fast lane...get off the damn road!!!

3. Bible readers on the bus....drives me nuts!! They're not even reading it. They just want to look as if they're going to heaven and everyone else isn't. They're usually those heavy middle aged women who sit there nodding their head in the front of the bus, as if they see some greater light that is and obviously, never was there.

4. Michael Jackson...nuff said.

5. Rap artists who have to make up a stupid f*cking rap name that's really just a word spelled wrong (i.e., Ludacris). These people should be killed.

6. Big Brother...I ABSOLUTELY hate that damn show. Goddamn...I wish all those f*ckin people would just die right there.

7. Greenpeace and other tree-hugging idiots. F*cking hippies, trying to save the rainforest. What's the point? It's just a bunch of trees, mud and bugs. Ok so there a few animals, but face facts, they're all going to die anyway. That's a fact, accept it. There's no point in chaining yourself to a tree or something like that...trying to delay the inevitable.

8. The crazy Jamster frog thing....oh God..is there no end?!!  crazy 

So many more...I can't think of them now..I'm too mad  irked

-Politicians (D and R) - especially those that make a career out of it, which most do nowadays
-People at store checkouts that wait until the last item is rung up to start writing their check or swiping their debit card.
-Obese people, with no other ailments, that ride around Wal-Mart in the motorized cart. Since when did being fat and lazy become a handicap?
-Stupid drivers, for example:
--People who can't merge (especially when 5 miles of road signs tell them a lane is closed and they don't bother to try until the absolute last minute, thereby creating a traffic jam)
--People who drive slow in the passing lane
--Not using turn signals

I do not wish to turn this thread into a political debate, but his has to be one of the most stupid paragraph I came across on a.net.
What's the point in saving the rainforest? The point is to save "Lungs of our Planet" because the Amazon Rainforest alone provides more than 20 percent of the world oxygen. Did you ever learn at school you need oxygen to breath and light a fire?
The point is to protect literally some million species of animals and plants from extinction. Not to mention indigene people living there. "They are all going to die anyway" is highly cynical and only proves you have no respect for life.
The point is to protect the world's climate by reducing greenhouse gas emission and to stop deserts (that support only little life) from growing - which is what the rainforest does.

And if you think only Tree-huggers and Greenpeace want to protect the Rainforest, think again. You could ask pharmaceutical giants where they plan to get their drugs from, i.e. some of the most powerful anticancer drugs, if the rainforest no longer exists.

Agreed on the crazy frog ring tone - does my tits in too.

In fact, ring tones in general. Why??? It's a *phone* and phones are meant to go 'ring ring' not play a flaming tune.

Drivers that slow down for speed cameras when they are already doing bang on the speed limit.

Drivers that don't indicate on doughnuts.

Drivers that hog the middle lane when there's f-all in the nearside lane.

People that go through the 10 items or less lane in supermarket's with at least 15+ items.

Women that continue packing all their shopping into bags well after the last item was scanned through, then piss about unzipping their hand bag, fumbling about in it for 2 minutes trying to wade through all their shit to find their purse, look in the money compartment, see there's not enough cash so close that up then look at the bank card section, pull one out look at it, put it back again, fumble in their hand bag some more and eventually pull a cheque book out and begin to write one out when the cashier promptly has to stop them as supermarkets have had cheque printing machines for decades now...............

Cheers,

I only have one. People who lack 'situational awareness'
  • the idiots who stop at the end of a moving walkway or escalator
  • the driver who completely blocks a street by chosing to stop directly opposite a double-parked car or delivery truck.
  • people who double park in the middle of the street instead of leaving room to pass (closely related).
  • the daydreaming supermarket shopper who is always in the way.
  • families with small children who don't take the opportunity to pre-board (when offered).
  • It's been swell, but the swelling has gone down.

    - People who can't follow simple procedures, like at work, to get things done accurately and on time.

    - Having to always take up the slack for incompetent or lazy people.

    - Sitting in traffic-- people who think they have the right to drive on the shoulders to cut in front of everyone else.. then have the balls to merge in at the front of the line.

    - 5 mile traffic jams on the highway caused by SOME GUY CHANGING HIS TIRE!

    - People who don't accelerate in the acceleration/merging lane to catch up to rolling traffic.. Instead, they slow down, defeat the lanes purpose and almost cause rear-end collisions.

    - Anyone who doesn't look at both sides of a story before establishing an opinion.

    -People who talk to much about anything.

    -Anyone who doesn't cleanup after themselves/litterers/slobs.

    Edit: - When people keep putting 'LOL' in their A.net messages. Remindes me of the instant messages i used to get from AOLers in 1997.

    Gear three, foot down, gear 4, merge at about 90 km/h in front of those 5 trucks, be happy! Big grin

    The use of the expression "could care less" (especially here and predominantly by Americans)

    It should be "could not care less". Losing that word in the middle implies you actually DO care about something, and therefore could care less because you DO care!
    Lead me not into temptation, I can find my own way there...
