Now that I'm thoroughly peeved, I thought this would be a good time to start a thread for people to share the things that annoy you most. :)


First for me are calls which come across on a Caller ID as PRIVATE. 100% of the time they are a sales call and blocking their number is their way of making you think it's something else entirely. Equally as bad is when they just hang up. Someone called for one of my bosses earlier under the PRIVATE phone number thing so I said he wasn't available to take the call and asked if I could take a message. She just hung up on me.

:td: <_< :angry:

If they can't let me see who's calling I don't answer the phone.

What I really hate is cheaters and liars.

I just turned on the TV to catch the local new and weather and they got the swearing in of the Cardnals.  Isn't there a Catholic channel for that? Honestly who really cares, I could see braking in if they had elected a pope but this is ridiculous.

I do that at home, but I can't here at work. Someone else will answer if I don't.

This happens often at my local gas station... Watching people pay for already prepared foods and junk food with food stamp (EBT Cards) then proceeding to hand the cashier a wad of cash and a stack of Lottery numbers to run for them.
Dammit people, if you don't have the money for food, then you definitely don't have the money to gamble.

Chicago drivers. :lol:  The idiots around here tend to go down the wrong way on a one-way aisle in the parking lots. If the parking spots are angled, the traffic must go one way. If they are straight, then it's two way. I always drive down the centre of the aisle and let them either back up or try to get around me.

People who tailgate in traffic.  Also people who stand too close to you while you are waiting in line.  
People who play crappy music really loud, in a car or at home.
People who let their kids behave badly in public.

Respect personal boundaries and have some manners, people!   (I sound like an old meanie :innocent:)

I am another anonymous face in the crowd. I am just another tiny wheel in the machinery of the world I live in.

Posted 12 March 2013 - 10:59 PM

people who stomp on the floor when they walk and feel the need to talk and yell at the top of their lungs, even though they know people live under them.

i'll just shorten that i hate neighbors of any kind lol.

parents at resturants that let their kids run around or be completely obnoxious when others are trying to have a meal.
