Things That Irk You

Postby selective_soldier » Sat Dec 29, 2007 3:44 pm

I know, I know... As if we don't have enough of the Don't you just hate it/ Public Annoyances threads.. But Sometimes you can't pin point specifics like;

:arrow: Those frigggin Geico commercials.. from that dam frog looking thing Image the Cavmen,> to these celebrities trying to revive their careers..

Who cares....Just let me know if your 'e cheaper than AllState, and if I use your insurance, I won't get the Red Weiner like I do at State Farm... good neighbor my @$$

:arrow: When people you barley know is trying to explain something to, and they begin giving you examples and wind up telling you their whole life history instead of getting str8 to the point. :roll:

Mam.... I barley know.. I had no idea telling me about your favorite purse would strike up a conversation about adjusting to your 1st training bra.. :shock: I'm not trying to know you like that! ImageImage :oops:

:arrow: Guys who wine & won't do anything to help themselves despite the endless help/ direction they're given.Image

:arrow: Gay guys who think you want them because you're friendly in gest with them.

:arrow: People who don't pay attention. Literally! Maybe it's the military training that causes me to always be on guard.

I have a Walkman, and I..... Yes, I still like my casset tapes.. :roll: Any ways, I'm still conscious of where I walk and my surroundings.. in general. When we were in Iraq, I remember fussing at these young cats all the time with those dam i-pod thingies in their ears when we were patrolling.

With all these electronic gizmos out, more people than ever seem to have some earpiece of sorts in their ear.Or they seem to be more people on cell phones, talking, walking in public and they walk smack dab into you.

I don't mean to play the conspiracist, but if a tragedy were to unfold these people would be in serious trouble.

ELEVATOR STUFF:

1. Rude and ill-bred people who get on the elevator without waiting for people already inside to get out.

2. Lazy-ass bastards who take the elevator to go one floor up or down. Especially down. Ugh. No wonder people are tubby.

I know this has come up before but,

:arrow: People who don't realize your phone[cell phone] is for you

Since last I posted on this, the comments from people who call me multiple times during the day to ask why haven't I returned their phone call has increased some what, but it's more now I'm being accused of making excuses for avoiding people.

There maybe times when I leave my phone at work, sometimes 3 times during the week. I may leave it in my book bag which is my briefcase & it's in my room. It's not until I hear the beeps, I've realized I misplaced my cell phone once again.

That's on me. But when liesten to the voice mail, I get these long winded comments from people telling me they're tired of my weak excuses for not returning their calls.

Lou, youre' killing me today.. :lol:

Let me stand corrected. The obssession of of pictures sent to you via e-mail. One lady at work sends up to 20 in day sometimes.. :lol: .

Mulitply that 3 times a week, then you feel safe in saying, Doris, you have a cute kid, but I can't keep up with the downloads.. :roll:

You'd have to know Dorris.... :D Instead of being insulted, she only sends 12 a day 2 times a week.. :lol:

Normen; you're the salt of the earth. I hope ya know if'n I didn't care about ya I wouldn't pick on ya, son.

Here's a evil thought: How 'bout we all send Doris our favorite kids and puppy pictures? Chip can include Pablo. Dustin must have some shot of Kayla. We all, well most all, have nieces and nephews. We could flood her HD with enough cuteness to make Dick Cheney smile. :D :D

People who clog up the already crowded coffee shop with their SUV baby strollers. These are the same people who use said stroller to plow their way through crowds at festivals

Man, do I feel you one that one. When I rode the trains in Boston and people would bring those giant baby strollers on. The worse would be the doublewide ones with a kid on one side and shopping bags on the other! Have a little consideration people.

That’s probably what irked me about the situation (and others). When someone thinks he/she is the only person that matters and everyone else has to “deal” with it.

:arrow: you're working on a project with lazy apathetic co-workers, when it's all said & done, they get the credit for the entire project they didn't lift a finger to help you with. & they don't have any remorse for it.ImageImage

:arrow: People who find out the person they're with is a sh!t bag, & they blame you, the mail-man & anybody except for the person causing them the misery.. Like trying to pick a fight with a person having an affair with the sh!tbag they're hooked up with; instead of him, isolating from friends and family who tell them the truth.

:arrow: You go to a book store, say Barnes & Nobles/ Borders, as you look around, instead of looking @ a magazine/ book that interests them, bring it to the counter, & pay for it, there are people strewn over the floor like they're at a slumber party. & When & if they've finished reading, they leave the item just where they were laying. Again like they're at their house.
Sometimes you can't even pass to getto a book I'm looking at. You feel like saying; Can i get you a blanket, a latte' ,maybe show you the history & philosophy section!?

I blame the book stores for this. @t first I thought this was a good idea to have places for people to sit & read. But how about..Paying for the item, then sit down & read?

:arrow: The one person in the group that just talks....... :roll: & talks...... :roll: & talks...........continuously.........Image

People who use the self-checkout aisles in stores and don't have a clue WTF to do. I guess everybody has to learn how to self check-out sometime, but why do I always seem to get the slow-learners in front of me?

People who use the self-checkout at grocery stores etc., yet are dependent upon a union themselves for gainful employment.

Yeah, I agree totally. I want to go up to them and say, "You know, when you get a real job, you will actually be able to pay for that and take it home!" I want to kick people that treat a bookstore like it was their bedroom, the cheap b***ards.

People who pay with checks at ANY retail establishment.

Seriously, people... get with the program and join the 21st century! Pay with cash, debit, or credit please. NO CHECKS!

The very least that they could do is have the check made out IN ADVANCE, less the amount, instead of waiting for the checker to give them the amount, and then having them ask "what's the date", and going downhill from there.... :roll:

People who cut into the queue when waiting for the bus, especially when you're freezing your balls off! :evil:

On the subway, it's expected, but come on folks, move aside and let the people get off the train first before you rush the doors.

I've developed subway rage over the years, forget about road rage!

Don't even get me started on people who don't say excuse me as they're squeezing their way through to grab a seat.

Don't even get me started! :roll:

Get 'em Karma :shock:

I'm always impressed by how rare it is for someone to not acknowledge the kindness of holding a door for them. And yes, it is super rude not to do so.
