    Sounds like my neighbor. Some single mother *****. She flirts with my neighbor to try and manipulate him into teaming up against me. I know damn well she doesn't like his type.This ***** stole my stuff the very first day she moved in. But she has a grudge against me? Typical middle school drama-queen *****, all grown up.

    I got one more that happened today.

    I hate when neighbors blast that robot voice crap music. Seriously I refuse to call it music its robot voices and not even cool robot voices. It just drove me nuts I had to put on noise canceling headphones and put on some metal to kill the pain it caused me.

    i hate it when coworkers sit and stare at computers and bang away the keyboards pretending they are doing something very important, when they actually have nothing to do. i also hate those life-less forms who continue to park their asses on their seats late into evening even if they have nothing to do in office.

    Humanity bothers me.


    I've been sending targeting solutions to the aliens since 1990 asking them for extinction level space bombardment "danger close" but they just won't do it.

    Cheap alien *******s, they said they can't afford it on account of their government not beling able to raise their debt ceilings.

    I just busted a rib from laughing so hard.

    You got me thinking...

    I imagine there are instinctive "rules" which govern when and how and who you lift. I also believe that if I was larger and stronger, I would do likewise.

    But there are some things I can't imagine doing, even if doing so would save my life.

    For instance:

    Would you lift someone like this if it was your only option?

    I hate it when the first car in the left turn lane isn't paying attention. The green arrow comes on, and they don't go for like 4 or 5 seconds. Finally, they go on the yellow arrow, but everyone else stays behind just because there were...doing whatever it is people do when they don't look at the traffic light.

    This bugs me even if I'm not in one of the cars behind them. And they don't bear the brunt of their carelessness. No, the people who pay the price are the ones who missed the light because the lead car figured that a red arrow means day dream time.

    I don't like it when you're entering a (usually) large store with a small entrance. Some moron is just ahead of you and proceeds to slow down or STOP upon going through the door and is quite oblivious to the fact that someone is right behind them ans has to stop or slow down. I always feel like delevering a quick and hard high-kick to the side of their head when this happens.

    It's just the rudeness of self-absorbtion that annoys me, I guess their senses are bewildered by the plethora of commodities, colors, people and displays.

    Similar to this, whenever I get on my train to go to work, theres always a good 10 or so people going in the same doorway as me. Without fail, someone ahead of me gets on and immeadiately stops after walking through the door and looks around to see where a free seat is, comepletely holding everyone up and stopping other people from finding a seat.

    I find it pretty weird going to pro tennis tournaments and seeing grown men walking around in full tennis gear, like head to toe RF signature clothing and shoes etc. Sometimes they even walk around carrying a racket, like theyre trying to get mistaken for a pro.

    Fat people, especially women, annoy me in two ways.

    First, they go on and on about food, diet programs, and weight loss, but they never actually change their habits and lose weight. I constantly have to hear about what people plan on eating for dinner for the next week, how many Weight Watchers points are associated with various snacks, and so on, and it just ends up making me very hungry and annoyed.

    If they spent as much time trying to lose weight as they do talking about losing weight, then they probably wouldn't be so fat.

    Second, they constant attack me, as if they're trying to prove something. Anytime I catch a little cold or something, they go on and on about how I'm always ill, even though I use fewer sick days than any of them. (Most of the people in my office use more sick days in a year than I have in the 5 1/2 years I've been here.) They also criticize the food I eat (despite the crap they eat), as if they're trying to convince themselves that I'll eventually end up as fat as them or suffering from other health problems.

    Of course, if I constantly commented on their health everytime they got out of breath walking up the stairs or criticized them for their lack of exercize, it would be considered cruel. A bit of a double-standard there.

    People who choose to speak loudly with emotion about things they actually have no backing from facts.
    Imo its better to use that energy to find out the root cause for ones frustration.

    People that insist in shaking hands.
    I have some good idea of how many men/women don't wash hands after using the restroom or digging their noses or whatelse. So I hate handshaking!

    From me to the world: if you do not force me to touch your hand, I do not think you're inpolite! OK?

    I think shaking hands is good once you have gotten to know someone and trust them.

    I'm OCD about washing my hands. I'm not into shaking hands with random strangers or anything, but if I feel friendly towards someone, then I do. Say a guy cuts me a great deal on a racquet, I would want to shake his hand. Or Tupac came back to life and played on team USA in the olympics, I would shake his hand.

    I give 'em the horn after about 2 seconds. Another thing that happens quite a bit here in Florida is that people will stop at a green light when they realized they missed their turn and try and cut across a few lanes of traffic rather than going to the next intersection and turning around. So they hold up a few lanes of traffic because they were stupid. I had one car that I laid on the horn for a good 30 seconds but they refused to go straight through the green light.

    Some of my best friends are non-washers :shock:
    I know that, 'cause even men go to the restrooms in groups sometimes...

    Though I trust them and of course know them pretty well, I'm disgusted when they rub their hands on nearly any surface instead of simply wash them.

    Maybe I'm a bit paranoid with hygiene, could be b/c of my job... working in infection control.

    VERY annoying: when trucks block all lanes trying to drive past each other, which usually takes an eternity.

    Happens everytime you are late for work.

    So much for the german "Autobahn" :evil:

    fat people: not people who are packing a few extra pounds. the ones who have their own zip code. i don't wanna hear that it's genetic or some other reason. there are no fat people in ethiopia. and the ones that are? they're showing off.

    rubber neckers: it's a fender bender folks. nothing to see here. continue driving 60 mph, glance to the left, see the car mangled, laugh at the poor schmucks, continue driving at the same 60 mph pace.

    cheap people: go to lunch with 3 coworkers. bill comes out and we wanna split it 4 ways. easiest way right? but nooooo. there's always some cheap azz who wants to figure out exactly what he owes to the nearest penny. and then they add a quarter for tip. if you're that tight on money -- pack your own lunch you cheapskate.

    Around here, we have a lot of traffic restrictions that are time-based. No left turn during rush hour, for instance.

    I won't tolerate people who try to turn left at 5 pm because they are more important than everyone else. There is a solid wall of oncoming traffic and a bunch of people behind them and they are going to turn anyway?

    Oh no they're not. I lay on that horn until they give up. I am hoping that the blaring horn will attract the attention of a cop. So far, no luck. They do usually abandon the turn idea though.

    At least people in DC are decent drivers. I feel your pain about Florida.

    They are the worst drivers in the country. They drive at a snails pace when it rains, I've driven at faster speeds in the blizzards of Rochester/Buffalo. Their is an accident everyday on every expressway. Constant cruising in the left lane and signaless turning and people oblivious to everything.

    Can't wait to go back to NYC. If people their can manage to drive without accidents I don't see Florida can't.

    I'll agree with you there. Florida has the worst drivers. If it rains, get comfy in your car. We have the lost tourists mixed in with people who think the interstate is the Daytona 500. Even the cops here don't obey the speed limit.

    Be careful about doing that if you're ever in AZ. Road rage homicides are commonly on the news. I've haven't had anyone pull a gun on me, but I've had them retaliate by pulling dangerous stunts that almost result in an accident.

    I will second this one.

    I cant stand it when you tell them to get up and go for a walk or eat better and they give you the I have a health issue that is preventing me. When asked about it they give you crap about some gland issues that they have no clue about.

    Its not that hard to drop weight when you are that big. Eat less exercise a little more and weight will come off.

    I have no problem with this. If I go to lunch with you and order just a side salad and drink tap water and you order the filet mignon with lobster and shrimp along with a bottle of expensive vintage wine, why should I subsidize your feast?

    When people use the word good instead of well.

    My one co-worker does it all the freaking time. I mostly just make fun of him, but it's quite annoying.

    "I can ride my bike good"

    asjkldhwi4l5y92385wer NOOO It's "I can ride my bike well". Ahhh he'll get it some day.

    Oh and bad drivers.

    Here are a few things that bug the Hell out of me:

    1- Coffee shop hipsters with MacBook laptops and frickin' lattes annoy me.

    2- PPL who constantly use 'hella' as an adjective.

    3- Cute suburban White girls who flash gang-finger-signs annoy me. Better watch where you do that!!

    4- Loud mouth soccer fanatics/know-it-alls annoy me.

    5- Non-Latino people who go to Mexican restauarants and insist on using 'authentic' pronunciations of dishes. They don't do this anywhere else. Seems condescending and 'showy'. Let's see them try this in a lower East Side Italian place.. they might not get out alive.

    6- Girls who wear UGG boots, especially in summer.

    I forgot:

    7. Military history bores and especially Civil War buffs. They never tire of going on about some feature of the Battle of Chantilly(or something!) that I don't give a rats-ass about or the details on the buttons of some regiment in Napoleon's army or the specifications of some damn German tank in North Africa.

    Nice list. I totally agree with the Spanish pronunciation thing. My wife is Mexican-American and this kills her. Her 1st cousin (also Mexican-American) barely speaks a word of Spanish but insists on toe-mahl (vs toe-mal-ee) for tamale and tore-teeee-yaaah for tortilla.

    May I also add #7

    7. Guys who wear UGG boots...ever, anytime, anywhere.
