It bugs me when people bring their babies to an event that is very important for people to listen to (i.e. an attorney swearing in ceremony) and the effing baby is crying and the parents are holding the baby and bouncing him up and down to get him to stop crying, but it just goes on and on and nobody can hear the speeches because these dumb asses just will not take the baby OUTSIDE of the room and tend to him there.

Ugh, I've had to change that in so. many. press releases.


It bothers me when people wait until the cashier is finished ringing them up before they take out their checkbook. If you know you're going to write a check, at least fill it out before you get to the front of the line so you're not holding everybody else up!

People licking their fingers to count money - lick it enough that the money is wet when they give it to me to deposit. Ick!

I had a customer once who gave herself a papercut opening the envelope of the credit card statement, then came into the bank to make her payment, and she'd bled all over the slip and on her check. "Gee, thanks for your biohazard credit card payment."

People who are getting less than $100 back in cash and think they are being funny when they ask for it in hundreds.

as for words that bother me... "conversate"

I'm like that with ice and my mom and cousins all know it....So they chomp on ice because they know itll drive me insane...I won't even put ice in drinks. If were in a restaurant I have to ask specifically for them to not put ice in my drink.

But I'm a weirdo--Ive never met anybody else with an aversion to ice.
My mother cracked her tooth open chomping on ice. She had to get a crown to fix it.

I hate it when I hear people say, "I guess it's free!" when something doesn't ring up at the store.

Also when people get a number for their food order and they say, "Oh, that's my age."

These people are not funny.. or original.

Oh and I hate it when people text me but don't spell out the words. Is it so hard to type 'you' or 'to'?

It bothers me when my friend says that he's "real" tired, or that he's "suppose" to do something, in text messages.

I don't know why! But one of these days I might break down and say something. Hopefully nicely.

I also HATE it when there are either:
a) commercials on at the same time in all of my car's preset stations
or
b) absolutely no songs I want to listen to on said preset stations (or, even worse, the same song on more than one station... especially if I hate it!)

I thought of one that's happened several times in as many days... I'm in an otherwise empty bathroom using the first stall. A woman comes in and takes the stall right next to the one I'm in. Why? There are five other stalls!

I hate repeating myself. It drives me batty. In a related matter, I hate being asked multiple times if I want something if I've already said no. If I wanted it, I'd have said yes the first time; I'm not being demure or coy. I just don't want it!

I hate that my home phone only rings 3 times before going to voice mail. I never make it and there's no way I've found to reset it. I need that fourth ring!

I hate the DSL at my in-laws house. It's basically glorified dial-up. You can't even watch a Youtube video! Get with the times, northwest Oregon!

I am really starting to get irritated with all the extreme abbreviating her on NC. Long product names and member usernames reduced down to just a couple letters. I simply can't keep up anymore and don't know what people are talking about half the time. Much worse than any texting I've ever seen. Bugs me.

That's not totally true - utilize can mean to put to practical or profitable use, so in a corporate setting often 'utilize' is the correct word to use.

Isn't this just basic public restroom etiquette? Same goes for people that sit directly in front of you in an empty theatre.

I hate...
the sound of teeth on forks.
the sound of nail clippers.
the sound of slurping.
touching cotton balls.
looking at octopus suckers. =X
repeating myself.

I have a lot of little things that bug me unfortunately, cause I'm just way too particular, but my biggest thing is:

when people tap me. If you're close enough to tap me repeatedly, you're close enough to say "excuse me". ESPECIALLY if you're a stranger. That's a form of touching and if you don't know me, don't presume to invade my space and touch me!

Ugh, I am way too irritable! Most of the things mentioned above annoy me, especially: any repetitive sound (gum snapping, pen clicking, finger drumming), nail clippers, teeth on forks, open-mouth gum chewing or eating, people who interrupt, people who are posers/attention whores, people who listen to their iPods so loud on public transport that everyone else can hear ... the list goes on ...

Definitely not alone-- I, too, am ice averse. I hate hate hate ice touching my teeth or mouth. If I have a straw, or if I'm drinking a cocktail, then its okay.

I also wanted to add, when you're on a highway and need to pull off for gas/food/bathroom/whatever, and the signs tell you there's a place on whatever exit, and you find out after exited that the place is like three miles from the highway you're going to get right back on. If its not within a quarter mile of the highway, it shouldn't qualify for a highway sign. Period.

That's what I thought. I would think you'd at least want the semblance of privacy. I guess it's not though.

"Definately" instead of the correct spelling - "definitely"

People telling me they pay a lot of taxes, like they're entitled to the world. So what? I pay taxes too and I don't put myself on a pedestal.

Your post reminded me that I hate when people omit the 's from a word when the word is supposed to be possessive. Sorry, I think yours was just a typo though! But I have heard people say, for example, "I'm going to my mom house." It's "...mom's house."

Hee...I forgot that part. Yes, I also say Hello and introduce myself first. I was just cutting to the chase in my post.

I know some would say "Johnson residence", but it's just the family surname.
It's not strange to me, but it is rather abrupt and might catch a caller off guard.

But it's better than my occasional greetings: "Chello" and "American Psychiatric Association." Now, that catches people off guard. Hee.

ME TOO. I don't like the abbreviating, but I odn't get mad at the people using it if that makes sense, I just hate trying to decode everything. Like "I just bought some CCCC and some KCCC b/c of a review from AJJ and RWC and I think it's my HG! Much better than LVPNG IMHO! My DH said it looked great too! I still want to try the QCCC from TJ's I'm such a PJ! LOL!

An exaggeration, but not a large one, some posts I can't even read!
