The songs, always the same songs, that play on a loop in the shopping center I work in. :hea: <-- sometimes I feel exactly like this. It's despair.
The other day I saw 40 Year Old Virgin and there's that scene where Paul Rudd's character is begging the supervisor to turn the DVD off at the store they work in.
I was like "MAN I feel your pain"

I know what you mean...the "Halloween Store" in my town that's only open one month the entire year decides that since it's open an entire month and there arent enough Halloween songs out there to play, it's going to play the same song all day long. The day we were there they played Ghostbusters.

As for my own pet peeves; sports junkies. In Louisiana, if you're not an LSU football fan, that's grounds for the death penalty or something. They're really just a bunch of self righteous rednecks with nothing better to do with their time.

-People who put their luggage/bags onto train/bus seats so that when it comes to people needing seats they can't take them.
-People who constantly sniff/snort.
-Feet rubbing together. It drives me insane.
-The sound of people itching. Ew.
-People who glorify drugs/drinking and feel the need to tell everyone they are the worlds biggest junkie. Sorry to be blunt but what's the need?
-People with prams who think they have every right to slam themselves into you and then complain to their partner because you weren't watching where you were going.
-People without the ability to give others a chance.
-Those people in vans (it's ALWAYS vans) that feel the need to shout rubbish at you because of what you are wearing.

I work in retail (PetSmart), so I have a lot of pet peeves. :p


People who don't put their shopping carts in the designated shopping cart area in the parking lot. This bothers me even moreso when they've managed to take the cart to a completely different store parking lot. WTF?
People yelling at me when the store is out of stock of an item. I'm not a corporate monkey, I'm not a manager, and even if I was, I probably still couldn't do anything about the lack of stock.
People who open up merchandise. Even better, people who open up merchandise and don't even try to make it look like they didn't.
People who select a bunch of different canned cat foods, later decide they don't want them, and hide them for me to find elsewhere.
People yelling at me and demanding to speak to a store manager when I'm just politely enforcing store policy, namely the 14 day return policy of animals.
People who think they deserve special treatment of said policy because they spend a lot of money at our store.
People who don't control their children, especially with those damned skate shoes. 1/4 of the store is covered in water from our aquariums - Those are NOT a good idea!
People telling me how to do my job. "That fish needs more water." No, it doesn't.

15-05-08, 17:52
People who make absolutely no attempt to spell check what they write and mis-spell even simple words (or words that are used so frequently that all they have to do is copy them correctly).

Students who refuse to take any responsibility for their own learning and then come and whinge at me come exam time that they're failing.

The TV show Friends.

Alright, thankyou, rediculous, focussed... they aren't words, people! (No, focused is NOT spelt with two 'ss's. It has become accepted, but it is technically incorrect).

Art thieves.

Irresponsible parents.

Irresponsible pet owners.

People who blatantly drop litter.

The girls in year 9 who complain at people for playing their music too loud, even if someone's phone goes off and there ring tone is a song they don't like, and then they go and play "Low" on their phones at full blast whilst singing the wrong lyrics to it like the complete air heads they are. They're also very loud and in your face cockyness really irritates me.

Basically all of the above.

I was going to say "intentional ignorance" by way of purposely spelling things wrong, pronouncing things wrong, or using incorrect grammar. It drives me crazy in real life to hear people mispronounce or butcher the language they're speaking and it bugs me just as much to see it on the screen.

Oh yeah, and ring tones/ring backs.

petujaymz
15-05-08, 18:07
People who loiter in bottlenecks like doorways and ticket barriers; rummaging through their bags or talking on a mobile phone.

I mean... have they no concept of the world around them? :mad:

The usual culprits are dim-witted students and businessmen with delusions of grandeur.

It annoys me when people don't say kiss my arse or nothing when you politely hold a door open for them. And then they sneer at you as if they are looking down at you.

Oh, and I hate songs that get stuck in your head that you particularly don't like anyway. But you can't get rid of them.

I just get annoyed when I'm sitting at the tram going after hard day in school home and some old man or woman comes in and just doesn't know, what he/she wants - When I notice him/her and see that she/he may be tired and stuff, I offer my seat to him/her but she/he refuses, so I keep sitting. Such an old guys are standing in that tram for like 10 minutes or more. The other case is, when I don't notice some oldie and so I don't offer him/her my seat, she/he immediately starts complaing like what the hell is wrong with teenagers these days. So of course, after this I stand up and let them sit. The bad thing about it is that in this case, when they complain, they sit there for like 1 minute. This happens to me 9 times out of 10 and I can tell you, I'm riding trams my whole life.

Another very annoying thing for me is the fact how some TEENAGERS are incredibly stupid and some ADULTS incredibly lazy and bigheaded. What happened to me today - I had to get one very heavy machine (like 50 kg) with four more school mates from one kitchen to another (the distance isn't so big, it's maybe 100 meters), the thing is that the machine was wet and oily, so it naturally was sliding from our fingers (we couldn't hold it anyhow differently) and the guy who commanded us to do this (by the way, he just came to our class (there are so many more classes but he always comes to our class) it was math lesson and he randomly picked five boys. I wouldn't complain anything, if he at least helped us get it there (as it was all that dirty, we were dressed just like every day and so our clothes was dirty then). And not only he didn't help us, he even let us jsut standing and holding it for like 5 minutes, so he could finish his personal phonecall (I could just hear words like "oh no no, I'll be home soon" and stuff). When he finally finished it, he called us to go to him and here's where the stupidity of some teenagers shows up. We were screaming MOOOOVE OUT OF THE WAY!!! and they just didn't react and kept standing and loughing. So the biggest of us five shouted that much it scared even me. Then they finally made some space. Once we got rid of the machine, I almost couldn't feel my fingers (did I mention I had to regrip it all the time due to the wetness and smear?) I thought: okay, now 'll go clean my hands and the obvious dirt on my clothes and get back to the class. But no. This guy sent us back to the first kitchen to collect some more stuff and bring it there. Of course HE couldn't go get it himself, he was too busy chatting with someone. And I lost full lesson of math that I really need now. This guy is head cook master on our school, by the way. :hea:

In the middle of the night when someones car alarm starts going off and they dont bother getting up and turning it off. Last night someone let it go on for an hour.

And small neighbourhood children that get up at about 8am and spend the morning screaming and crying in the garden instead of playing like normal children.

-People who find it hunny to jump at you and scare you when you're being focused on something.
-When my parents call me and shout in the phone as if I have to hear them talking from 40 km away.Needless to say, everyone in the same room can hear them conversation.
-Again, parents insisiting if I don't want to eat or wear something.
-People revolted that you're not interested in something that interests them a lot.
-People who don't understand the ened for privacy.
-When people brag about themselves an tell you that thing that makes them so full of them over and over again.

I absolutely hate it when people stare at you, especially if they're perverted. It annoys the crap out of me. I asked a guy once, (maybe in his 50s) who was staring at me, and wouldn't stop, and I said, "Are you blind? Because it only takes a glance to look at someone. Have a problem? Step off ! " I was so mad.

Girls at my school treat me like a dog because I'm a tomboy and not like them, I answer back to the bullies rather than sit there and take it and they don't like it at all.They act like because they are plated in mae up and have tha latest stuff that they above everyone else and the school rule, I can't remember how many times a popular, uninteligent person has been excluded from school.
Thing is I get good grades and never get noticed, it's so annoying that they think I'm weird because I'm more clever than them and they think they can get on over on me because I'm not popular!

1. People who TRY to be funny. There's this idiot at my school who tries soo hard! He will talk EXTRA loud about stupid subjects in hopes of getting a laugh out of everyone. And when no one laughs...well he just tries harder.
2. People who think they're better than everyone (like being conceited).
3. People who dont clean up their messes around the house
4. When people dont change the toilet paper roll when its CLEARLY empty!
5. Gossip
6. Spitefulness
umm i think thats it..

EDIT: One more thing lol... when my parents yell my name for something every 5 fricking minutes instead of coming to my room and speaking like normal. One time ..my step dad even called me on my phone from his room for a glass of water!! I was like you gotta be kidding me!

1. Littering.
2. When restaurants have crap for vegetarian food. Like, salad, beverages, and maybe some of the sides, and that's all.
3. When I find a thread that I think is dedicated to one of my favorite characters but has turned into a thread dedicated to my least favorite pairing. ...That was oddly specific.

Edit: Thought of another.
4. When people say that because someone spends some time and effort doing something that doesn't make money/isn't essential to their survival, then they must have no life/too much time on their hands!

2.What are you looking for in these restaurants? :confused:

I'd just like to see at least one vegetarian main dish. (Fortunately, most restaurants I go to do have that, but sometimes I strike out.) I could subside on sides and stuff, but y'know, it's the principle of the thing, or something like that.

and few more things that makes me ****ed:

Little girls who wears make-up, I just want them to show how they will look like when they are 30.

Kids who want to have kids: or fourteen-sixteen year old girls who spent rest on their childhood raising their own child. Going to disco, getting drunk, and you know the rest

Small kids trying to play hero: oh god, I just watched TV, a twelve year old girl, in her childish accent, browsing the Internet and tries to change the world.

People who can't accept that life is unfair seriously, crying in a corner because your BF cheated on you is not going to help. **** is going to happen again and again and again.

People like you upset the cosmic balance! :mad::p
I remember once drinking 12 smirnoff blacks on an empty stomach (hadn't eaten for 8 hours), plus a 4 back of rum n coke......

I was fine the next day............. doesn't that annoy some people? ;)

People who visit threads and post on them just to say "Who cares" or "I could give a rats..." just because they are in a bitter mood. They are like an annoying little gnat. Go buzz somewhere else! Swat. :smk:

Do us all a favor and just stay away. :p
