What little unimportant things bug you for no apparent reason.

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.

I hate "utilize". People say it instead of "use" because it sounds all big n'stuff. "Utilize" means to use something in a way in which it was not intended- if you take a butter knife and utilize it as a screwdriver, for example. MacGyver utilized the heck out of all kinds of stuff. Your average Mr. Bighead Suit does not utilize anything.

It irks me to no end. grr! Use normal language! I actually saw one email that had so much of this lingo in it that it didn't make any sense. I wish I'd kept it.

I also hate it when people let their kids leave the outgoing voicemail message. Generally these messages are garbled and make no sense because the kids don't speak clearly yet, but the parents think it's so cute. It's not! It's annoying!

I also hate getting up at 5am to work a 13 hour shift on inventory day like I did today. I couldn't get to sleep til 2 am because of insomnia, which I also hate.

My grandma answers the phone "Yello!!". Its become a sort-of inside joke.

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.

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!

People who end their sentences with "but" or "so".
But WHAT? So WHAT? FINISH YOUR SENTENCE!!
Vinyl things rubbing against each other. *shudder* Sets my teeth on edge, the sound is just painful!
OMG, LOOK!!

...It's a siggie.
Slow-ass people! Even worse, slow-ass inconsiderate people.
God, they piss me off to no end, meandering about, dilly-dallying as if nobody else has to walk around them. Today a guy was with his girlfriend and they just had to have their arms around each other as they went down the stairs, completely blocking the way. There was such a desire to give them a kick and send them swiftly down the damn stairs.
Then there are those who look at their phones or talk while walking in a crowded station. If you can't walk and talk, don't!
You can talk to the person you're with after you make it through the narrow walkway, as opposed to walking without looking because you keep looking back.
Don't sit on the ****ing stairway!
Don't decide to have a discussion at the top, middle, or end of the stairway. Get the hell out of the way!
Pick up your small child when going up or down the stairs or even just getting out of the train at a busy train station. It's not just annoying for us behind you, it's incredibly dangerous. People don't always look down and can easily knock your child down.
Take your damn backpack off when you get on the train. Take your damn backpack off!

And really, walk to your right! Walk to your right! Walk to your right. Why is this so hard? Why must you walk straight down the middle at a snail's pace, thereby not allowing anyone to bypass you?! Or why must you walk on the left side, making me move when you should walk to your right?!
I missed this the first time, but I really enjoyed reading through all of the responses. Wow, I totally agree with most of these things. Most of the kids in my class write, and say, "Ben Birthday" or "Mrs. Smith class." It really annoys me. I also had a girl come up and ask me in a store, "What time it is?" Does that even make sense?? I just stared at her blankly for a minute before she repeated the exact same question. I am also an ice hater. I have always asked for no ice in drinks and now my mom, dad, and sister do the same.

Somebody mentioned throwing out pens that do not have a top or tops with no pens. I HATE when I let people borrow a pen, lid or clicker, and they break off that little part that sticks out. It really irritates me! Most of the time I tell them to just keep it after they try to hand back my broken pen. I hate the way it looks! What if I want to clip it to my notebook now?? Also, people who chew on or put borrowed pens in their mouth. Gross!
Omg. I get so mad over just about everything, I could probably keep coming back every day and find something new to say! xD

I also hate it when people let their kids leave the outgoing voicemail message. Generally these messages are garbled and make no sense because the kids don't speak clearly yet, but the parents think it's so cute. It's not! It's annoying!
As a general rule, I hate it when people go crazy over babies. If it's your friend's/family member's sure. You're supposed to. When the cashier takes 10 minutes to go omg a baby how cute let me see it awww how old-- AAAH NO!

Someone talked about refusing to breathe when people cough. I refuse to breathe when I walk by someone smoking and if I accidentally inhale any of that horrible stinky disgusting smoke I will cough to try and get it out as quick as possible. If I'm stuck behind/by a smoking person and I can't move, I will wave my hand by my face in a "god, this place stinks" way and cough loudly--but most times I will just do whatever it takes to get away. I have zero sympathy for smokers, and around here SO MANY PEOPLE DO IT. Ugh.

I hate noise. This morning, some of my neighbors decided to blast VERY VERY loud music...at 6:30 am. That is a particularly extreme case, but I hate hearing low bass beats at any time of day, I hate when an electronic thing is making a buzzing noise and I can't figure out what it is to turn it off, I hate when people listen to music on their phone's speaker in the subway--I honestly think I might be a lot less stressed and annoyed if I was deaf.

One weird thing that bugs me is fuzzy fruit skin against my tongue. The only way I can eat apricots or peaches is by placing the fruit so fuzzy side faces away from my tongue and eating carefully so it doesn't come in contact. It does to me what hearing nails on a chalkboard does for some people--I shiver and feel awful and weird. Do not like.

Slow-ass people! Even worse, slow-ass inconsiderate people.
YES I hate being stuck behind slow people. I usually am a fast walker, and being stuck behind people drives me craaazy. I'll deal for a little hunched over grandpa, but when it's a row of three teenage girls who are talking so loud they can't hear me walking right on their heels in the hopes they'll move over just a bit... angry.

On a similar subject, when people expect you to do all the moving when you cross someone on a sidewalk. I will often walk by couples/groups who pretty much expect you to squish into the tiny sliver of sidewalk they are leaving open without moving at all. I tend to purposefully bump these people >.>

But my worst anger is people being inconsiderate, rude, childish, or such, with the full knowledge that you can't do a thing. If I could make rules, slapping someone who deserves it would be fully legal (example: those neighbors with the 6am party). The knowledge that these people can continue to be so completely impolite with no way for me (or anyone else) to do anything gives me headaches from angriness.

... I'll stop now, I'm too easy to drive to extreme anger.

Kiva! Microfinance works.

When our neighbors slam the front door to our apartment building. You have to turn the damn knob to shut it! It's an old door! They seem to think if they slam it hard enough, it'll close. But then it bounces back open, and the next person comes along and slams it hoping it will shut. It's a vicious cycle of supreme idiocy.

My husband's waaay more impatient when it comes to being stuck behind people than I am. The other day my husband and I were on the escalator, leaving the movie theatre. There was a couple standing in front of us. He looked over at me and whispered "you know this is killing me, right?"

Does anyone else get bugged by certain words? (Other than "whom"). Words that are somehow icky.

Here are my icky words:

Panties
Caress

Um, there are probably more that I can't think of right now. I know some people don't like the word "moist" but it's never bothered me.

Ahh, I am sure you said you were leaving as you left the house-you do not need to beep to announce the leaving again!!! Slow in the middle of aisle walkers in grocery stores. Move it to the side people!!! And do not leave your cart in the middle of the freaking aisle!!! Wow, I need to stop.

I am laughing at jeepcurlygirl though-you said you would stop but then you added more later-you just had to get them out!!
