Posted:I was replying to another thread and one of my pet hates came up (lip balms). Just wondered if anyone else had any wierd pet hates / compulsive things they do?

Mine are:-
Twisted coil phone cord.
I have, and mean HAVE to untwist any phone cord that gets all twisted around itself. Not sure why.

Lip balm:-
Too addictive and horrible to kiss

* EATING/DRINKING NOISES... the whole crunch,crunch and the slurp,smacking of lips and guzzling of drinks..MY GOD!!! If we were meant to eat like pigs we would have been born as pigs!!!





ditto
someone was so obnoxious i reached out and grabbed them by the throat (i knew him) and told him never do that again mad
my mother chews her ice cream and scraps her teeth on the spoon
people who smack their gum, i had a teacher who compared them to sheep chewing cud only louder
people who talk really loud on the cells on the bus (especially the late night buses) usually about the party last night or who they slept with, stuff i dont care to know-or even better "omygah-no way-nooooo-what a slut-no way-i cant believe it-noooo"---SAY SOMETHING INTELLIGENT censored censored censored

I think I'll add:

People who use 'lol' instead of a fullstop.

In fact, Bad use of punctuation...

Also bad spelling (when there's no excuse for it). Especially those in Higher Education. How did you get into University if you can't even spell?




You must go crazy on this bb then. How do you stand it? wink
I didn't have to take a spelling test to get into uni, btw.

Have a couple more to add.

People who ask for your advice, even pay for it, and then when you give it to them they make up tonnes of excuses why they can not do it/listen to it. Don't waste my frickin' time if you don't really want to hear what I have to say PLEASE!

Being dismissed with a catch phrase such as "Fair enough." or "Okay." They aren't answers. They aren't even part of an intelligent discourse. At least acknowledge what you've just heard, if in fact you listened to it at all.

BIG ONE that has developed for me in the past 3 years, being watched over my shoulder. Whether I am on the comp, doing paperwork or sewing or whatever. If I'm not actively teaching, then don't linger. It feels like I am being spied on and I am not so intriguing as to be a the spy masters greatest hits thanks.

ditto to all three!

This is possible the most grumpy post i have ever made but I can't sleep and i've been lying awake thinking about stuff that has annoyed me recently so i thought I'd bump this thread and write it all down. Hopefully then i'll be able to get some censored sleep!

Hypochondriacs and people who say they have the flu when they have a cold.

People who dish out sarcasm and piss takes but as soon as someone takes the mick or makes a sarcastic comment about them they suddenly loose the ability to take a joke.

People who put themselves down continously so that people will disagree and say things to make them feel better - Fishing for compliments.

People who do good deeds for people but only to get recognition for it and then bringing it up at every possible oppourtunity so that others will think that they are good person. *I don't mean that these people shouldn't do good deeds, just that they should do them because they want to do good and not so that everyone will praise them for it*

Posted:people who are proud of their ignorance (yeah, chavs, you know it)

when my housemate turns his radio on at midnight, smokes for an hour or two (non-smoking house) and then when i get up in the morning, the radio's still on and the house stinks of cancer.
and he gets stroppy if anyone says anything.
and lives off someone elses shopping because *I'm totally skint* yet mysteriously has money to buy cigarettes and take-outs.

when people take a book off the shelf in the library, and then leave it somewhere around the building, or put it back in the wrong place, lazy censoreds

freshers who talk about how drunk they were/are/are going to be, loudly, in the library, while i'm trying to write a dissertation.

when something makes me angry and i know i'm going to get wound up over it for weeks, and i just want to be chilled out confused

Posted:I bloody hate those idiot chavs that suddenly run to the back of the bus, and start waving to their mates that are on their little mopeds behind the bus. AND THEN they start shouting stuff like "ANWSER YOUR MOBLY", yeah because their mates will be able to hear him...

Also I can't stand those little welsh idiots (seriously I don't mean to sound racist, but I got a reason for ranting about this, not indicating that ALL welsh people are idiots) but I hate it when they turn around to me and say "You're english, why don't you live in your own country?". They bitch about the English living in Wales, and yet English is the only language that they can speak.

Posted:Old Rude People. Again not saying all old people are rude, but recently i've been noticing this more and more, you step back for them, you hold doors open for them, you allow them to go before you in the supermarket checkout, they step on your feet, they catch the back of your legs with their wheelchairs and all you get is a look like "What do you want?". What is this? I am a polite person in most cases, especialy to strangers.
