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

Posted:I have another one to add to this lot (I'm not going to get involved in the vegan/vegetarian debate). I have a circle of friends who are mostly polyamorous. They're generally unaware of anything outside their little world, and the relationships within the group seem to be getting more complicated by the day. I went to a party the other day and although it was a compliment to me for the hostess to say that my spinning fire was the highlight of the party for her, it doesn't say a lot about the party. At one point, there was a 3-way (shouty) argument between 3 people who are all "going out with" each other. This is not appropriate in this situation. It's also causing other people that used not to be in relationships to have become much less sociable, because they need to spend so much time with each of n partners in order to make sure they're not neglecting any of them. Life's too short! Argh!

Posted:flid-san you have me all rong. i try to make everything myself from scratch, including blending tomatos for sauce and attempting to make stock.

its just a bit difficult owning an entire free range farm when you go to school and live in central london.
Also the east end is full of fantastic butchers who sell at dead cheap.
ALSO im not very average when it comes to food. a burger isnt my idea of a good meal, daube provencale with boiled AND mashed potatoes is.
YUM YUM

also, just think about by saying you wont eat this, this and this, you limit your tastebuds BECAUSE you dont eat this, this, and this.

My GF is veggie, and i didnt know until a month and a half into the relationship AAAAAGHHHHHH!!!!!

With the amount of starving people in the world, whilst i'm eating a varied and balanced diet without death then i reckon i can live without 'daube provencale'

quote:WC Rowes is the bestpasty makers in the land, try itIf it's all the same with you i think i'll decline.

Posted:I'm with Flid on the Veggie/Vegan issue.

L.L - You're saying that not eating certain things limits your taste buds but I don't think that's true, you don't have to eat loads of different food all the time to eat good food that's well prepared and taste nice.

Being Veggie is also sensible health wise. When I became Veggie I lost weight as I stopped eating so much crap (It's not so easy to eat fast food) and i've never heard of anyone getting a life threatening disease from eating a courgette.

Eating meat can disrupt life completely - look at foot and mouth.

(And I do eat meat substitutes but I don't think they look or taste like real meat which is why I eat them. I think they taste like some kind of funny mushroom protein - which is what they are.)

It just seems interesting to me that Veggies having been living healthy lives for years and yet the Atkins diet comes with a warning that you can only do it for a couple of weeks at a time because that much protein is not good for you.

Posted:FLAKES!!!! they are soooo annoying. if you can't keep ur plans....DON'T MAKE THEM!!! or at least freaking call!!

hmmm...what else....controlling girlfriends who don't let you be best friends with their boyfriend even though you might have known the guy for AGES and they've only been dating like a week.

i'm sure there's more but that's my top two right now.

Posted:Hmmmm...

-When people realize they are doing something rude, apologize, and continue doing it.

-When people put themselves down and when someone tries to cheer them up they slink into a corner and sulk.

-People who sulk for no reason.

-People who think depression is just something to do, and if you aren't depressed you aren't cool.

-When people refuse to be themselves (Actually that's more sad then anything... not in an insulting way... its just sad)

-People who are racist/prejudice/judgmental
which connects to
-People who won't take me seriously because I am a teenager. ARG I HATE THAT!!!!!!

-When the batteries run out in my diskman
...
...
one of these things is not like the other, one of these things just doesn't belong! Hahaha ^^ well thats my list for now.

Posted:I just remembered the thing that annoys me most in my entire life is Clothes shopping with my fiance.

If I agree to go shopping with my Fiance, and she wants to buy a new coat, for example. We would go into the city and go to a shopping mall. She goes into a shop and sees a coat she likes, says thats nice and then says No maybe not. So we continue on to the next shop, and the next shop, and the next shop, and the next shop, and the next shop, and the next shop etc etc etc.

Then after several hours of shopping, we are on the other side of the city and she says........ Wait for it....... "You know, I really liked that coat in the first shop" AGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

So we have to troop all the way back though the city and she buys the coat in the first shop!

Why cant you just buy the coat and go home! I just dont understand this

When i want a new coat, I go into a shop and BUY one. Thats it!


Be Good, and if you DONT be Good, Buy a Pram!

Posted:Am I allowed to say being short really annoys me? Because I can't reach the cupboards above my refridgerator without jumping? And new pants always needs hemmed because my legs are too short? And people who come up to me and rest their elbow on my shoulder as if I'm a walking, talking... elbow rest??

*giggle*

Apart from that, I'm pretty easygoing.

Narf- however, bad spelling/grammer annoys me to no end... Stuff like "o how r u. im good 2". Oh! That, and the light in my room. It gets in the way of my glowsticks when I spin in my room... Silly light. *scampers off to take it down*

"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here."

When i want a new coat, I go into a shop and BUY one. Thats it! Hell ya! I'm agreeing with you on that one man. I'm a chick...Course yall could tell by my login name

Anytime I have to go to the clothes/grocery store I go in, get what I need, and get the hell outa there! I may when looking for certain clothes go to a couple stores located in the mall, but I tend to make a decision after looking at a couple of items. On top of that I don't really go out and "shop". I buy stuff that will last me awhile. People tell me I am very frugle(sp). Not too sure what that means though? Does anybody know what frugle(sp) means in regards to shopping???

Something else that annoys me is girls going to the bathroom to do their business, but go to all efforts to hide it! Turning on the faucet before stepping into the stall doesn't fool anybody!

We are all living things who must get rid of their bodily wastes. It is part of life so just get over yourselves and just go!

Posted:People who have so many typos that I have to read the post at least 5 times to understand wtf they are saying... grrrrrrrrrrrr

people who think it's cool to be depressed. Depression is a real problem that both me and my fiance (along with anxiety) suffer from.

My cell phone bill (shudder)

My cable/internet bill

spending 2 months job hunting as an IT professional and end up with a interview at Dairy Queen

My guinie pig who thinks it's funney to do full tilt laps around his cage at 6 in the morning when I'm trying to sleep.

having an Economics class when Friends and Scrubs is on.

people who spell the ==> teh

the JAVA programming language. it is beond me how a language that was designed to program coffee machines and microwaves ever became an internet standard.

Which brings me to another issue why the f*ck did they develop high level lang for coffee makers any way. Doesn't assembly do the job just fine? Better yet as punishment for imposing java on the world we should only allow applience programmers to use punch cards and maybe paper tape

i'm rambling again

I work(not live) in like the 3rd richest town in the USA, Montecito... and so many people come in to the store thinking they are better than everyone else... one person that comes in will walk to the front of the line, reach over the cash register, and wave their credit card in my face. If that is not rude and disrespectful, I dont know what is.

I'm afraid I couldn't be in sales because of thinks like what Grayforth just mentioned about the line jumping credit card wavers, because I'd be doing something like grabbing the card and throwing it like a frisbee towards the end of the line, or degmanatizing it, or something else like that. I am often guilty of rather rash displays of this nature.

My man and I both have friends that we each hate and if he ever stopped me seeing my friend I would be extremely pissed off...that would go vice versa too I believe.

But what REALLY pisses me off would be people that ring me at my job, ask me the same freaking question ten times over, to which I answer no each time. Then they call back five minutes later and ask the same question another five times....WHAT PART OF NO DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND!!!!!


Sorry but that would be my BIGGEST peeve ever.

Posted:Missuse of teh word LOVE. It is the one thing that gets to me more then any thing else in this petty world. We watch shitty tv soapies where gets fall IN LOVE 5 times before they reach the age of 15. Call me old fashioned if u will, but love, even the word love, is far to powerful to be kicked around as it is every where we turn

And whether u agree with me or not, young kids these days (and i can't really talk being only 20 myself)get a crush on a partner, are taugh that it is LOVE from people around them, and then really never know that perhaps there is more to it then......then......whatever they think love is.....

i think that it is like mother nature, if u **** with it, it will come back and bit u in the arse one day, andthen ther will be this whole generation of lonley people who know not what it means to really love or be loved by another

cheers
