    I'm annoyed this thread fell into an abysmal oblivion for almost a year! C'mon, get annoyed! I'm mad as hell and I'm not gonna take it anymore from you happy, smiling cookie cutters!:eek:

    Don't get me started. Right now, I'm thinking about the Chattanooga shooting and I'm way beyond annoyed. I am downright livid. And I cannot verbalize my thoughts here because it would get me banned immediately. There you go.

    People that put their feet up on their desks when they are talking to you are annoying. I had a boss that used to do that.

    I'm annoyed I brought a nice gentleman to a restaurant I recommended for their superior food and he had to encounter a pair of loudmouths at their bar area he was seated at that ruined the atmosphere for his dining pleasure. The bartender did nothing to quiet his buddies down so he left without eating.:mad:

    That kind of stuff is beyond annoying. More appalling than anything else. Same for the Charleston thing.

    Another thing that annoys me is the cops that shoot first and ask later. Cops in Europe are a so much more civilized. I understand that there are a lot of people with guns out here, but there is a limit to everything. People should be held accountable for their crimes no matter who they are. It's not Mayberry out there anymore. Andy Griffith is a thing of the past. :(

    Don't tell that to the family of the Brazilian electrician improperly identified as a terrorist in the London Underground in 2005. He was shot seven times in the head on his way to work for having "Mongolian eyes".

    Nothing has the power to annoy me ... *


    * barring random and excessive hashtags and underlines, and little angry kids poasting on the internet claiming they are 30.

    I am starting to get annoyed that I have to wait another year for BCS's next season. Also, annoyed that it's been raining all day and i have a run scheduled. The park will be inundated.

    I'm sorry, I didn't even hear of this. That sounds horrible. What a tragedy.

    Still, I think that in general, European cops are not as aggressive as American cops. There are a huge number of great people in the Police force in the US, don't take me wrong. I've met many of them. Great people. It looks like in some large urban areas, especially those with higher crime rates, there is a super-agressive kind of cop which is very disturbing though.

    I don't know if you guys saw that video of the Swedish cops dealing with a fight in the New York subway, but it was pretty cool. This is exactly the way things should be handled by police force, and not the "tase or shoot before, yell like a madman, etc" It looks like the way conflicts are dealt with by default in the US is to escalate things through violence. Escalation, as far as I know, never yields good results.



    BTW, LOL at that guy yelling like a possessed Gremlin. :eek:

    Yes, I have the feeling BCS is going to start heating up very soon. We got a taste of what things can be like with that flashback episode of Mike, and with Tuco's appearance. Now that Saul has "seen the light" and is "breaking bad" you know it's when the real fun starts. :)

    A pet hate of mine is people who watching movies with me, and are constantly on there phones throughout. And then some even have the nerve to ask me "What just happened?" throughout the film.

    I used to enjoy watching movies in company. Now it's either me on my own, or me and my wife. I don't tolerate other people as much. LOL I sound like an old snob. ;)

    One of the cops is definitely Robin Soderling. I think the two guys fighting are Chimpco and TLW at MTF. Chimpco yelling I can't breathe. :D

    Same here. What's worse is relatives dropping in when I am seeing a movie (this used to happen years back when i watching on TV and i could not pause), and then saying "oh that's not such a great movie". So now I've seen the first half of it, and have to wait months to see the second half. Of course, no movie on telly is "such a great movie".

    I hate going to the theater just for the same reason ... cell phones. People thinking it's their right to chat.

    One time my wife and I were the only patrons at a movie theater. It was early afternoon, weekday. The movie was a children's movie too (kinda). Paulie. It was awesome.
