What little unimportant things bug you for no apparent reason.

Like Tree5Likes

Ha ha, I am LOVING this thread. I just read the whole thing, and made a LOOOONG list while I read!

Here you go:
  • People who say “I could care less” instead of "I couldn't care less"
  • The sound of chewing (especially tuna sandwiches)
  • When people (i.e. my mom) flick their nails
  • Dark or dimly lit rooms
  • People w/ very guttural voices
  • People who do that noisy throat scratching thing with the backs of their tongues
  • Hypochondriacs, attention-whores, and excessive self-pitiers
  • When I’m at work doing 8 different things at the same time, and then the phone rings, and the woman sitting 5 feet away house-hunting online DOESN’T ANSWER IT
  • When waiters/waitresses at restaurants fill up the whole glass with ice, so you need a refill after like 3 sips
  • People who say, “I want some drink.”
  • People who stand too close to me for too long
  • Static on the radio
  • My boss writes “cum” instead of “come” in text messages—and he doesn’t even mean it in a dirty way! For at least that ONE word, could you take the time to type all four correct letters?
  • When every stall in a public restroom has something nasty going on in it
  • People who, while conversing, are clearly asking a question or expecting some sort of response…but they don’t pause long enough to let you talk
  • When the person in line (or at a traffic light) in front of me doesn’t move up as the line moves, so there’s a big gap in the line
  • When people don’t rinse the dishes before putting them in the dishwasher…or just don’t put them in the dishwasher at all
  • That on the rare occasions that my roommate does unload the dishwasher, she doesn’t reload it afterwards…or she only reloads HER DISHES!!!
  • Really loud or high-pitched sneezes, especially when they come in rapid succession
  • When you split food with someone and they eat more than half
  • That my thumbnails grow faster than any of my other nails
  • People who drive below the speed limit
  • My roommate puts dirty pans in the oven. Then later I preheat the oven, open it to put my stuff in, and find a hot, dirty pan.
  • That I can’t seem to swallow liquids without making what sounds to me to be a lot of noise
  • People who pronounce the “s” at the end of Illinois
  • People who casually use the word “rape” (to refer to things other than the actual definition)
  • “To” vs. “Too”
  • My ex-boyfriend who seems to think that it is perfectly normal to call/text me whenever he’s horny, bc hey, we USED to have sex, what’s the difference?!
  • That my eyebrows are two different shapes and I can’t seem to fix them
Whenever I'm reading, whether it's a book, magazine or online article, my boyfriend decides he wants to talk about the video game he's playing or other random things. It's like he can't stand to watch me read, or he thinks I must be so bored that I'd rather look at the new armor he just "bought" for his video game character. LET ME READ IN PEACE!!!

don't know where to start with this one but I would have to say the worst is when you are speaking to someone and they reply back to you but their head is turned in the complete opposite direction from where you are and they haven't made any attempt to try to turn and look at you. I know sometimes it can't be helped but I just want to smack the back of their head.
Oh man. I could go on forever...but for starters:

People who walk on the wrong side of the sidewalk. Sidewalks should have the same rules as the road!

When the right side of the sink has dirty dishes in it. THOSE GO ON THE LEFT SIDE!

People in my office who have headphones in and can't hear themselves slurping soup, rocking their squeaky chair, etc.

When people pick at their nails and it makes a click-click sound.

When my cat sneezes right in my face.

I literally burst out laughing. Mmm, hot, dirty pan. It would piss me off a lot if I had a roommate who did that, but as I don't, I found it hilarious XD
Can I ask WHY on earth she'd be sticking a dirty pan in the oven? Is she trying to hide them so she doesn't feel guilty about not washing them? Stick them in her bed next time! Makes as much sense as in the oven!

The last time it happened I got pissed off and grabbed a towel from the drawer to get the hot pan out (the potholders were mysteriously absent)...for some reason there was this "coaster" made of that puffy woven shelf-liner material stuck to the bottom of the towel, so when I took the pan out of the oven, the coaster thing melted to it. So THEN I had to angrily scrub melted plastic off the pan!!! >

However, thanks to this thread, today I remembered to check the oven before I preheated it! No dirty pans!
Your roommate makes me feel stabby, as well. I'd wait for the dirty pans to cool, then toss them on her bed, melted plastic and all.

THIS:


Seriously, what am I to make of this? My roommate bought this and it has been on the counter for days now. If you want to keep it, it should have been refrigerated. But odds are you're done and can't be bothered to THROW IT OUT!
Assuming he doesn't toss it in the garbage (because recycling is just so damn hard), and eventually he washes the container as he is supposed to, I guarantee the stupid jar will just linger forever and ever, on the counter, as opposed to him not even having to take a step and opening the cabinet under the sink where the blue recycling bag resides.
I might be a bit hard here, but I can't stand it when people repeatedly ask for computer help. I understand there's a learning curve for it, but if you've had your comp for 5+ years and spend all day on the internet, then there are a few things you should know: installing a program, updating software, the fact that installing anti-virus and spyware isn't enough, you actually have to run the programs. If a printer is broken, installing it on another computer won't make it work. And if something comes up that you don't understand freaking google it! Don't call me every few weeks complaining that you can't figure out what java script is! Just update it already, i've told you a thousand times how to do it! it's not that hard. It's your computer, it's your responsibility to learn to use it and take care of it. Don't get me wrong I don't mind helping out. But when it's the same thing over and over again
RE: the dishes and stuff on counters and in ovens just sitting around unwashed, you all make me SOOOO happy I've never had to have a roommate (besides my SO's, and I could give them the what-for and they would stop whatever nonsense they were doing). I would have constant murderous thoughts.

Oh, and I have shown my boss, the PHD genius, how to save a document on our shared network at least a thousand times. He still does it wrong and then can't find the document. Again, murderous thoughts abound.

Yes, I'm not a fan of roomates! Only had them in college. I've had a few friends who would want to room with me but I'm sure I'd drive them crazy and vice versa. I'm not very clean and like to clean on my own schedule.
Men. Who is surprised that men are just plain gross, raise yer hand? : )

I've been a cranky crotchety cantankerous old lady since I was about 7. And that probably bugs people.

I get SUPER bugged when someone is constantly changing plans. Make a plan and stick to it darn it!!

Man, I had the best roomie ever in college. We're both tidy people so we got along great.

One roommate-related thing that was insignificant but completely pissed me off, however, was her boyfriend insisting that because I wasn't born in NYC, I wasn't a "real New Yorker." There's a whole state outside of the city! Where people are born, live and work, and some of them have never even been to the city! Myopic fool.

And this has probably already been mentioned, but it drives me nuts -- NUTS -- when people do the following at the grocery store:
  • Stand at the beginning of an aisle, blocking it off to anyone who needs to walk down there, and when you walk all the way around to the other end, they've moved and it's all clear.
  • Come in through the exit door, or leave through the entrance, thus creating a bottleneck
  • Don't watch where they're going when they push their cart out of an aisle. LOOK OUT, YOU B*STARDS! You don't have the right of way!
  • Can't be bothered with these two little words: "Excuse me"
And I hate it, HATE IT, when people stare. Why do they do that?!

I feel silly writing it out, but the following will occur when my husband and I go out to dinner with another couple:

I start talking and if it appears that only the husband or wife are asking questions about the topic, my husband will start a separate conversation with the other half of the couple.

So it ends up we're at a dinner table with two conversations occurring within an intimate space, and I find it really rude and distracting. I hate it.
Writing out check deposit slips, esp for the ATM. I don't know why! I'm depositing money. But I hate it.
No MAS.
