What little unimportant things bug you for no apparent reason.

People who rename things so it sounds modern.

Example: Demin Stretch Pants = Jean Leggings or 'Jeggings'

or last year the herringbone braid became 'the new summer hair do! The fishbone braid!'

When people use two reflexives, like "I self-educated myself," or "She self-diagnosed herself." It's soooo annoying.
Grown women who cannot use the word breast, so they say boobs or bubbies instead. Bubbies? Really? Oy...so infantile, and infantilizing.

I like the word boobies, but I wouldn't use it with my doctor. (Well, maybe I would, but we have a funny relationship.)

I don't care if I'm behind the times with hoodies! You whippersnappers think you invented the style, while back in the day, we wore them disco-rollerskating. (Said in an old crone voice.)

People who stop to chat with the check out desk staff at the library when there's a line of others waiting. Fie!

I bought some hoodies today and really need to get my boobies measured again.

I hate it when it seems as though one day, your bra's fit fine, the next day they don't. I also hate bra shopping. The sizes are not consistent. How can the measurements manufacturer's use be so varied? Strangely I thought 30 inches was 30 inches.
Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.
I'm with you on the bras. I measured myself today because I'm in desperate need of new bras and it seems I'm a mutant because what I'm coming up with puts me in a ridiculous sized bra.

Frustration abounds.

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
When I go to the grocery store, purchase my groceries, forget a bag at the checkout, and not notice i left the bag until i get home.

People who think they're being funny when they make a smartass comment. For example, when I ask to see their drivers license, I get "Oh, you mean I need a drivers license to drive the truck? Har Har Har." NOT FUNNY, DUMBASS.

people who assume that just because they asked to try your food means you're going to give it to them. Then have the nerve to get upset when you tell them no.

What I HATE?! When I call a business and the person answers the phone "hello". HELLO? You ain't at your house, heffah! How do I know I called the correct place? Can I get a "Hello, Bestbuy" or something!!

I just called to confirm reservations at a restaurant this evening and I stumbled up cause I thought I must have made a mistake and called someone's house cause the receptionist was like:

"hello?"
Me: Oh. I'm sorry. I think I..um...is this Bobby Van's?
Receptionist: Yes
Me: Oh. Cause I thought I called someone's residence by mistake. I'd like to confirm...

That REALLY gets on my NERVES.

Thanks, Mystic Spiral!

And now, back to crankiness:

Don't clutch your huge children and draw them close in fear when you're walking into a pet store where pets are allowed and I've got an obviously nice dog with me.

And I saw what you were buying, btw. I know you're going to feed those poor things to some predator. S---- you, Buddy.

"I will never be the woman with perfect hair, who can wear white and not spill on it."

People who clearly don't read the thread they post in. They read the title, don't even bother to read the OP, much less the ensuing replies. So annoying!
I was reminded of this reading a comment from someone who actually gets this, but it irks me so much to hear "I prefer gelato/ gelato is better than ice cream".
Gelato IS ice cream. There's no specific "gelato method" that makes it different from ice cream. Gelato can be custard-based or it can be starch-based. Yes, it often has less fat since it is made with more milk than cream, but it can have just as much. Gelato means "frozen", that's all. It's not some magical term for a completely different type of ice cream.
Here's that post, because seriously, spot-on!

There's techincally no difference in the definitions of "ice cream" vs "gelato" at all. Perhaps traditionally a gelato would be frozen quicker, resulting in less air and a denser result, but there's no official rules. "Gelato" just means a frozen dairy dessert. There's no specific "authentic" recipe for it. Small-batch ice cream that used an egg for stabilization would come out the same. Perhaps American brands are more prone to using heavy cream, whereas gelatos might use lower fat milk with egg as a stabilizer... in which case you've got "frozen custard" instead. Which could be labeled "ice cream" as well. Again, there are no rules.

I loathe people who hang up on me. There's always a way to end the conversation: "We'll talk another time" or "I'm sorry, I have to go." etc.

It's childish and rude.
