What About People Pisses You Off?

Wed Jul 18, 2007 4:41 am

I was at the movies the other day, and all was well until 30 seconds before the actual film started. A middle-aged couple loudly came in, and sat- you guessed it- right behind me and my friend. After they finally shut the hell up, they started eating their popcorn like a cow chews grass. It got me thinking- what do people do that pushes your buttons? I'll start.

-People that can't chew with their mouths closed, as mentioned above.
-People who drive under the speed limit in the passing lane on the highway.
-Assholes that think it's cool to get drunk every night of their lives and then talk loudly about it the next day in class.

That doesn't even begin to *touch* my buttons.  Wink Let 'er rip!

Amen to that one....plus:

People who have no manners whatsoever.....I mean, would it kill you to say "Good morning" on the phone, instead of "let me talk to so-and-so"?

Dishonesty.
Lack of personal hygeine. I stood behind this guy (whom I know vaguely) the other day in a checkout line and he STANK!!! There's no excuse to smell like that if you're a healthy person...hello???!!! Soap? Deodorant?
Know-it-alls. (Usually they don't....nobody does)
People who lean on their horns when the light turns yellow. Green is go. I'll go on green. Now get off the horn!!
Cellphone drivers...there is no way that you can concentrate on the road and have a conversation on the phone at the same time, I don't care how good a driver you think you are.

There are probably more, but I'm feeling benevolent.

People who drive *at* the speed limit in the passing lane on the highway (assuming that there's no one to their right going even slower, of course).

Cashiers who don't make eye contact and greet customers when they arrive at the cash register, and who fail to say "Thank you" at the conclusion of a retail transaction.

People in retail and service industries who say "No problem" instead of "you're welcome" in response to "Thank you." I didn't *ask* you whether I'd caused you inconvenience or hardship, dammit, nor do I care. You're there for my convenience.

Liberals.

Yes, apparently is it too hard for some people to say "Hello" or "Good morning/afternoon/evening", that is also something I notice every day.

A problem that occurs every summer when people sweat more than usual, I got a perfect example last Saturday at the gas station, some dude who stood infront of me stank disgusting, when I had suffered one minute more from his smell I had asked him if he don't know what a deo or shower is. It is completely beyond me why some people appear like that in public, simply disgusting!  yuck 

My parents and me share three cars and recently I put a can of deo into the glove box of every car so that I have it within reach, no matter which car I am driving. I hate nothing more than coming out of the office on hot days while being all in a sweat whithout having deo handy.

People who lack common sense.
People who are unwilling to change opinions based on better logic or evidence.
People who are "experts" on things they know nothing about.

Or one example I saw at gate G1a at ORD yesterday...

People complaining about things they have no control over and cannot change.

'Co-shoppers' who fail to make eye contact and greet cashiers when they arrive at the cash register, and who fail to say "Thank you" to the cashier at the conclusion of a retail transaction.

People who believe that other people are only there for their convenience.

That being said, any kind of inconsiderate behaviour is extremely tiresome. I was brought up in a kind of liberal old-fashioned way. I disliked it then, but I appreciate it now.

My pet peeves:

- inconsiderate use of mobile phones;
- inconsiderate smokers;
- inconsiderate parenting;
- inconsiderate motorists;
- testosterone-laden motorists;
- disowning responsibility;
- fossilized conservatives

... among many, many others

To quote Meat Loaf, you took the words right out of my mouth. It's bad enough in winter with the homeless boarding local public transportation to warm up, dressed in their filthy jackets and reeking of alcohol and whatever else... but these days at 35°C and more, the folks in their undershirts and shorts and socks and Birkenstocks and flowing breast hair heaving home their ALDI purchases tend to smell even worse. We need a subject calles "courtesy" in school. Or, preferably, a little girl on each train asking "Mommy, why does that man smell so bad?"  devil

Top of my list- People who can't park BETWEEN the lines in parking lots. It amazes me how many people I see daily that either
a) park their car crooked so it takes up two spots
b) park on the line (centered, like an airplane) so it takes up two spots
c) feel they need to park their car/truck at a 90 degree angle so it takes up three spots. (I've seen it done).

It's not the inconvenience that get me, it's the lack of effort in something so simple that pisses me off.

Others:
-Arrogance
-People who tailgate you when you're doing 5-10 mph over the limit yourself.
-Racism
-People who do certain things or act certain ways outside their norm to impress others.
-Liars & manipulative people.
-Know-it-alls, especially those who are full of sh*t in reality.
-People who think everything they do is right or the way things should be done.
-Those who try to run other people's lives while struggling to control their own.
-Travelers who get pissed off at airlines because they're flight's been delayed due to something out of the airline's control. If there's a line of storms bearing down on the airport you're at, it's not Delta or American's fault. They didn't schedule these storms.

Biker dudes who mod their Harleys to be as ear-splittingly loud as possible. What kind of personality defect causes people to need to be acknowledged as an asshole by total strangers every time they leave their house? Especially at 2:00 AM.

Aggressive, Type "A" personalities

People who don't signal their left turns

People who won't give you the time of day unless they want something from you

People who put expensive material things where their personalities should be

Screaming babies on airpanes, and their parents.

People who are flakey.... ie, those who say they will be somewhere, or do something...and never do.

Most very conservative people piss me off.

Waiters who take their time- even when the restaurant is not busy. It would be one thing if the restaurant was busy and they were slow because they have a lot to do... but waiters who seem to linger and disappear and appear at their leisure really annoy me. I usually have somewhere to be and not hours and hours to sit and wait for them to take my order...

Trophy wives who drive their SUVs like they are tanks... this is frequent where I live... in the land of the plastic-laden 50 year old trophy wife (no, not Los Angeles, surprisingly...). They all have Range Rovers, or MB GL450s, or BMW X5's or Lexus trucks.....and they drive them like mad-women, aim them at you and dont stop until you slam on your brakes.

People who are rude to Airline staff for no reason.

Airline Crew who are rude to passengers because they no longer have motivation to be pleasant.

Rude Customs/ Immigration officers in the US. I expect to be treated like a citizen, not like a pestulence. I get treated more nicely in every other point of entry in every other country that I go. Except the US. I am a citizen of the US, and thats where I get treated the most rudely.

People who walk slow and seem to ALWAYS drift in front of you when you're trying to quietly move around them.

Erm, people without any manners whatsoever.
People who insist on eating with their mouths wide open, and chew gum with their mouths wide open.

As a smoker, I don't understand smokers who do this. There are more non-smokers these days than smokers, would it be THAT difficult to move away to a secluded area to have a smoke? If I'm at a party, that's what I do...I don't like to offend.

How about at restaurants? I saw a couple one night at one of Bermuda's more romantic restaurants...you'd think they'd be all wrapped up in each other, right? Oh, no....the guy spent probably 3/4 of his time on his damn cellphone. If I'd been his date, I'd have been out of there!!

I thought of one other...... thump thump cars. Ok, obnoxious reggae or rap may be to your taste but do we all need to hear it? I am going to collapse laughing the day one of these cars falls apart in front of me from all the vibration and the driver ends up sitting on his ass on the road!!!

Most of the above, but some are rather petty to get pissed about. Life is to short to go around being pissed off at irrelavance.

I am revolted by racism. I room part time with a racist and he is able to ruin my day in 3 minutes as he complains about niggars and freakin riqans. His words, not mine, my wife is mixed race (as I am working in the States as we create a business in S. America).

I have asked him to go back to Canada, but he continues the rant about niggars and spics and people that don't speak English (as my grandparents didn't when they immigrated from Italy), and move to Quebec as he hates non English speakers. Maybe racism is just part of overall ignorance.

Lack of driving skills.

Talking on a cell phone while driving.

Eating with mouths open

obnoxious/arrogant people

Those lacking common sense

People who say the word "like" between lots of words in their sentences. Would it kill you to actually know how to use wording effectively? This pet peeve alone explains why I've never had much of a love life in high school due to most girls doing this. Drives me up the wall every time.

Bad parents

Passengers who bring everything including the kitchen sink with them and try to cram it all into the overhead bin.

Passengers crowding around the gate during boarding time. There's a reason why they board in sections, people. Wait your turn. Getting on the plane doesn't always mean you get there faster.

Those who always state the obvious. Alright, we get it!

there's more I'm sure, but those are the main ones

Then I suggest you do two things:

1) yoga, because if you are already in that state after less than six months on the road, a nervous breakdown looms large on the very near horizon for you,

2) once your hormones have settled down, do exactly what the people you say you hate do (drive under the speed limit, that is). Driving under the speed limit is a very safe and wise thing to do. A speed limit is, as its name indicates, an upper limit, something you should never go over, bar life-threatening situations. But you could very well drive under the limit.

Anyone who writes a check at the grocery store... It takes 45 seconds to ring 10 items in the express lane, then 5 minutes to write the friggin' check! ARRRRRRRRGGGGGHHHHHHH!!!

Why do people write checks anyway? Use the fucking debit card! It comes WITH the checking account. It's a package deal.

Check printing is expensive. And you pay the bank for processing of every check that is written. The debit card transactions are FREE. So... Why do people write checks? I haven't written one in over five months.

.... most of the above plus:

 alert  People who do not respect that others are entitled to an opinion too

 alert  People who brake first then indicate; your indicator is exactly not, not to confirm something you're already doing!

 alert  When you bump into someone in the store or street, apologise profusely, yet they still give you a dirty look

 alert  People who stand outside your house talking in 'pub' voice at 11:30 at night .... 'oh don't worry about us, we're only sleeping you inconsiderate b*****ds!'

I'm sure I could come up with more but if you look at most of the points raised in all of the posts, they could be summed up with one ....

 Angry "PEOPLE WITH NO CONSIDERATION FOR OTHERS" covers it.

Biker dudes who mod their Harleys to be as ear-splittingly loud as possible.

Worse yet, people who mod their F350's, Dodge Ram pick-ups to make it sound like a 1978 Peterbuilt and when they step on the gas they spout out a thick, black cloud of soot that takes 2 minutes to clear.

Also ....

- People who block intersections if there is a red light.
- People who stand 20 minutes in the check-in line at the airport, doing nothing but complain about how long it takes to check-in and when it's their turn, they go up to the counter and start looking for their damn ticket and passport instead of using the 20 minutes prior to look for it.
- Bicyclists who more or less think they have no rules to follow, using the sidewalk, then the road, going against on-coming traffic not caring about stop signs/red lights, etc.
- Drivers who think a yield sign means the same thing as a stop sign.
- Drivers who think a merge sign means the same thing as a stop sign.
- People who get offended by every little thing.
- When you're sitting on an outside patio at a coffeshop, enjoying a cup of java and a smoke, having someone come up after you, sit down at the table next to you telling you to put your cigarette out. Hey, I was there first,you saw me light up, don't like it, don't sit beside me or shut the hell up.
- People coming up to my bus asking me if I'm going to Armstrong. I ask "What does the sign on the front of the bus say?", they say "Vernon". I ask, "What time does the bus for Armstrong leave?", They say "3:46". I ask, "What time is it now?", they say "3:10" .... "Well, am I the bus that is going to Armstrong now?" Sheeesh!

-The sort of women who can't simply pay for their purchases at a cash register with a minimum of conversation, and then step aside to make way for the next customer in line.

Why is it that with so many women there are always questions, problems, and special cases in a retail context? It's as though they feel cheated if they don't get some threshold amount of attention. Hell, I've seen that sort of look on their faces when a retail transaction finishes too quickly to suit them. Oh, and Ghod help anyone in line if the cashier is also a woman; anytime there are two or more females present, there will be Talking.

Two things that occur constantly in Bermuda. I'll be driving behind a car that suddenlt stops dead in the road, starts to make a turn...and then signals when the turn is practically complete. Not only dangerous, but immensely stupid.

Bicyclists (and taxi drivers, bus drivers and truck drivers) seem to think that the law doesn't apply to them. It's the LAW...the law applies to everyone, you don't get to pick and choose which ones to obey.

Just told one of my coworkers that I love to complain...
So for me :

- Untrained dogs not held with a leash.
- Bikes (bicycles and motorbikes) rode on the pavement. Hello... do I look like I'm going to push my daughter's pram on the road ?
- Smokers who smoke where it's forbidden (public transportation... closed places)
- Smokers who will dismiss their cigarette remains everywhere. Hello, it's a street, not a dump (and that goes for dogs as well).
- Tailgaters when I am on the fast lane and not above the speed limit. Yes, I know, you want to drive above the speed limit, too bad for you. I want to overtake that lorry and still arrive alive.

Cheers,

Cashiers who don't make eye contact and greet customers when they arrive at the cash register, and who fail to say "Thank you" at the conclusion of a retail transaction.

What bothers me more is cashiers that think their conversation with their friend or co-worker is more important that greeting the customer. Hello. Remember me? The one who helps pay your salary?

Not just Harleys but many many cars around here seem to have no muffler at all, and the owner of said car is quite proud of that fact. Especially at 2AM. Where can I get a set of spike strips?

Quoting LHMARK (Reply 13):
People who don't signal their left turns

Or right turns. It also irritates me when people can move into the intersection and make room for people to pass on the right. Let me explain that one: We have some major streets around the Portland area that are one lane each way with no left turn lane. When someone wants to make a left turn, they could simply move into the intersection and wait for oncoming traffic to clear, then make the turn. But, no. They choose to sit and let traffic back up behind them, wait until the light turns yellow and see the oncoming traffic stop, then make the turn. At a regular intersection, there is usually enough room for a large truck to pass on the right. Yesterday, I had a Tri-Met bus pass me on the right when I was trying to turn left from NE 33rd to Prescott. What could be simpler?

Quoting PlateMan (Reply 17):
Slow walkers drive me crazy.

How can one person take up an entire aisle in a supermarket or shopping mall? I have never understood that. Any time I am trying to get something, there is one person with cart that takes up so much room in the middle of the aisle that everyone has to wait. This aisle hog is usually on their cell phone talking about so-and-so's latest hair style or who just broke up with so-and-so. I DON'T FREAKIN' CARE! MOVE!

I also can't stand when people take celebrity gossip seriously. I don't care that Paris whoever was in jail. I don't care that Eva whoever got married. I don't care that David Hasselwhoever is a raging alcoholic. There was a major wreck on the highway not 3 blocks from my house, but that was not the top story of the day. Greg Oden and his tonsils were more important. I still don't know what caused the accident. I don't know if anyone was taken to hospital and if they are alright. All I know is 4 fire trucks were on scene and a fifth was cancelled en route. Other than that, nothing.

People who defend one position because they saw one story on it. I have seen liberals and conservatives fight tooth-and-nail over things because one source says something. Research, people. If you believe in something, know about it. If you are conservative and cite credible sources, great! Let's talk. If you are liberal and cite credible sources, great! Let's talk. If your ONLY source is FOX News or The Nation, forget it.
