Posted:I was at work yesterday and thought of 2 things that annoy me more then anything, and though i would start a thread as a place for ppl to get off there chest what is is that ppl do to them that annoys them more then anything....

I work at a large tool store as a check out chick, and the first thing that really shits me is
- when u put up your "sorry this lane is closed" sign, and it is a big sign, so u cant miss it, and customers come along and see u are serving your last person, look at teh sign, look at you, look at the next lane whih is longer look back at the sign and then skip around it thinking that i wont notice. And then get cranky with me when i tell them to look at the bloody sign

- the other thing that really pushes my annoyance buttons is people who have stood in line for 3-4 minutes, and it is real busy so u are working as fast as u can, but it is only once they get up to u and u process all their products tha they think about get their money out, or deciding which plastic device they wont to use. As if it is that hard to when u are waiting in line with nothing else to do


neway...cheers ppl

When complete strangers where i work, think they have the right to call me luv, darlin, and feel that its ok to touch me. Friends have already earnt the respect, i dont like strangers treating me like they are your best mate, especially when they are drunk.

People who come up to you in a park with all their teeny mates and say 'show us a trick luv', that sentence really starts to bug me after hearing it a hundred times. Anyway, thats my early morning rant. oooooops hope i dont sound too hostile.

Woman complaining that we (MEN) dont put the toilet seat down.

OK here is my argument: If we, as men have to life the toilet seat to use the toilet, then why should we have to put it back down again. It is only fair, if we have to life it, then woman have to put it back down.

I also believe there is a hygene issue here as well. With the toilet seat sitting down, then dust and germs are more likely to land on the toilet seat, so for your own personal hygene, i recommend that the toilet seat should remain up at all times unless it is une (obviously)

I have discussed this with my fiance, who I live with, and she totally agrees with me. She will put the toilet seat down and I lift it up. Its only fair!

straight edge:
i understand what your saying, but DONT BE SO FUKING ARROGANT ABOUT IT U C*NTS!!! I LOVE HARDCORE JUST AS MUCH AS YOU!!! as if spinning poi automatically means im a raver, punk n hardcore baby, yeah.

vegans and vegetarians:
im sorry, but do you realise how much you limit your taste bud? i dont care what you say, quorn will never be a roast chicken from next door. as for cruelty, i try to find the gbest butchers around who do their own killing and keep it all "free range". If i open my restaurant and some one says "cna i have it a caesar salad without the chicken and anchovies" ill kick them out because no one ****s with my recepies. if you dont like it, dont eat it. sure as hell dont try and change the recepie. just kik me in the nads.

townies:
kids who saw being keen at school as uncool and thus fuked up their lives. no education, no brain no lives. these are the kids who go "show us a trik" in the park, and laff at people who try and insult them. its cuz they cant do any better. PS this is most of the kids at my school.

whiggaz:
white boyz who wanna be gang bangers. not trying to be all cool, but i grew up in hackney (east end of london, one of the worst areas, ask smallboy.)and seeing the kids here at a bording school wishing they was all "west si-eede" makes me wana cry.
no one should go to school and see racism like i saw age 12.

The seat, lid, the whole lot but she insists on leaving the lid up so I can stare into the bowl when I'm brushing my teeth. But the up/down compromise seems quite a good idea BigDav!

now for other things....

When people say they'll do something for you and don't, but not because they forgot or were to busy, but because they don't give a sh*t! When I've run out of fuel for my Fire Poi and am stuck in the middle of nowhere at 10pm.

Folk shouting "Shamone Mother F*cker" (people outside the UK might not know about this) every 5 minutes in the pub and still thinking it's funny after the 50th time
that'll do for now! THANKS!

Omnivores who don't understand Herbivores! None of us are complete Carnivores (apart from the Atkins lot I suppose! ) so give the plant eaters a break. It aint about taste buds or methods of killing. Eating dead flesh is eating dead flesh and some people don't wanna eat dead flesh.
And no I'm not a veggie if that's what you're thinking.

Personally I just think it is all a beat up that allows us to whinge about the opposite sex without seeing them as people. Well, the reason why I posted that was because i was at a party last night and there was a huge discussion about the Toilet Seat scenario. One of the girls came into the room and started to complain that the toilet seat was left up, and 5 out of the 6 other girls in the room agreed with her and started B!TCHING about it.

I stepped in and suggested my idea about the comprimise thing and everyone was much happier with that situation.

Posted:I'm with frostypaw on the "not letting people off the bus/train first" thing. Which DRIVES ME MAD.

This morning's particular insanity was some woman who drove her Lexus into the back of the routemaster(traditional london bus) that I was on, and then overtook the routemaster and stopped it in front (so the bus couldn't go) in order to get out and have a go at the driver. Bus full of people delayed because she was thick.

I think that anyone who laughs at me when I screw up a trick is definitely to go in the list, especially when they're giggly early teenage girls

Most of the younger kids who play with the sock poi, I don't mind so much, because they're a bit better, though one of the ones who lives near where I do, and thus where I practise, has a tendency to always ask "how much were these" about every piece of kit I have.

And currently, of course, I'm absolutely livid about the bloody building site outside my house, and the fact that it's likely to go on for at least a year, and that they have a generator that makes a noise 24h/day, and that they appeared to be about to build a tower crane on site, just what I need to see when I wake up in the morning. They also start moving their lorries around before 7:30, though don't actually start any bashing and banging until 8:00 (on the dot).

Posted:BigDav, some of us chiqs prefer egalitarian toilet rules.

When I'm visiting a male friend's apartment, I always put the toilet seat up when I'm done, just to be polite.

Oh, and things that annoy me:

Tall people on the trains who reach over my head to hold onto the pole and so condemn me to a commute with my head stuck in their armpit. It's disgusting.

Long days at the office where none of the partners are willing to talk to their clients, so I have to constantly tell these poor saps in jail that even their lawyer refuses to speak with them.

My house is too cold. That annoys me. Brrrrrr.

Days when all I want to do is light a fire (in the fireplace) and mull cider with cinnamon and ginger and dress up in eclectic finery and then curl up and read stories aloud with a group of friend... and I suddenly realize that everyone I know who would want to do that is too far away to join me.

No really... i know it's a problem - but sometimes there's nothing else to hang onto :S i shall keep my pits clean in consideration

another train related peeve: people who don't move down the carriages... then tell you off for asking them to be considerate.

it all links to:

I have discussed this with my fiance, who I live with, and she totally agrees with me. She will put the toilet seat down and I lift it up. Its only fair! I agree with you. When I am over at Dio's place I always made sure to put the toilet seat up after I got through using it. He would do the same for me whenever he was over at my place. He made sure to put the toilet seat down for me. We don't live together so what you and your fiance do is alil opposite of what Dio and I do.

One thing guys need to remember is to make sure they aim for the toilet bowl water. I hate going into bathrooms after some guy has used it and there would be pee outside of the bowl. Or the guys who are way to lazy to even raise the toilet seat up, and so there will be pee sprinkles on it!

Another thing I have observed regarding toilets. I have noticed that people forget to clean underneath the toilet seat. Stuff splashes up there people, so please remember to wash that surface as well when cleaning!

I hate it when people sell you food that they knowingly don't have or run out and so you must substitute something else.

I am really protective of my truck. When people are tailgating me or reving their engines behind me while I am waiting for traffic to clear before I pull out, I get so pissy Or when strangers put my tailgate down and sit on the tailgate of my truck. Especially when they don't put it back up

Tourists that visit our uni. Dio's place is on the tour. People if the bedroom doors are shut, leave them shut! Most of yall weren't raised in a barn. Another thing I don't like about tourists is that they ask some of the dumbest questions that are so blatantly(sp) obvious. Like when a woman asked "oh what are behind those" referring to the guy's curtains that were hanging over the windows in the living room. I'm gonna say "windows?"

Man hope this doesn't make me sound angry or anything

One thing I hate most is....BAD BATHROOM HYGIENE!

Why do some people insist on never cleaning the place you spend most time washing of dirt, peeing and crapping! The only worse thing is a kitchen that is so dirty you don't even wanna make a cup of tea in it and you stick to the floor! ugh

Posted:quote:vegans and vegetarians:
im sorry, but do you realise how much you limit your taste bud?i disagree. In the 18 years i was non vegetarian my diet was confined mainly to about 15 different meals 99% of the time. The average person in this country doesn't experience what the world has to offer because they are so obsessed with having meat/cheese as the main component of their meals. Even food recipes imported from other countries are modified for western palettes, in some cases made up altogether (ie many of the curries sold in the UK) to taste basically like the stuff we already eat. Vegetarian sections of supermarkets are full of products based around cheese, which just all ends up tasting the same and drowning out other flavours. When you have a limitted diet is when you really put effort into discovering what is out there, because you are forced to prepare all food yourself. There's thousands of base ingrediants, vegans can eat 3 less than vegetarians (milk, honey, eggs, which when not used as the main ingrediant can generally be easily susbstitued because they are there to perform a function (ie eggs as a binding agent), and are in the recipe purely because they are the ones which people already have in their cupboards) and a few animals that non vegetarians have (most people don't eat more than chicken, pork, beef, lamb, the occassional turkey). It's only since i've been vegan that i've discovered that the main source of taste in recipes/meals that i used to eat came from the vegetable/herb/spice components of them. Most sauces, ie stragonoff can be made with virtually identical taste without animal products. Meat substitutes exist mainly for people transitioning from meat eating diets, as most people who grow up non vegetarian are used to the taste of meat and are obsessed with it. I've yet to taste a meat substitute that tastes the same as meat, and vegan 'cheese' is just absolutely grim. But then few people who are dedicated vegetarians/vegans claim that they do taste like the non vegetarian version, most are too grossed by the concept of eating flesh to want a lookalike. Saying that vegans taste buds are extremely limitted is just plain nieve.

quote: i try to find the gbest butchers around who do their own killing and keep it all "free rangewhy bother? If you care enough to want free range stuff only then you should cook/prepare all food yourself. The vast majority of processed/pre prepared food available is not, unless labelled as (it costs more, so profit margins are less unless it's a selling factor). If your diet is anything like mine was, and that of friends and the people i live with (who are almost all non vegetarian), then the meat that comes whole from a butchers/supermarket is only a small fraction of the amount of animal products you consume.
