The Pet Peeves Thread

Recommended Posts

t3h PeNgU1N oF d00m

When people say I look too young to work. This may seem like a compliment, but when you look young in your 20's little things like this are really frustrating. What they're basically saying is you look like you belong in high school or at home playing PlayStation. Not doing adult stuff like working.

Take it as a compliment. Your young looks will perhaps pay off in the long run - you'll be 40 and won't have to look like a decrepit old burlap sack. If you want to be an asshole, politely and on-the-daily remind your coworkers that they are old and are going to die before you. It will really demoralize them and put you in a position of superiority.

I enjoy watching the winter olympics but the excessive interviews and punditry are kind of annoying. Just show us some sports. Background and info on the sport and competitors is fine, but don't go overboard with it.

^I'm kinda sad the Winter Olympics are over. I've enjoyed the past two weeks of seeing my home country's women's curling team. Two of the members were pretty pretty.

BBC sent over 2 of their goons to set up surveillance cameras inside my home to make sure I'm not watching their channel. Fuming.

1. They can't do that. Are they perverted?

 

2. You don't need a TV license to watch content on BBC iplayer. You do need a license to watch live content.

No doubt it's been said several times already, quite possibly in this thread, even. But I'll say it again just because it cannot be said enough...

 

People who walk along staring at their smartphones, expecting you to swerve out of their way.

 

Cruel and unusual punishments are not enough.

Something I've found very distracting and annoying when I am watching a movie or TV show is when I make the faces, gestures, movements, and anything else of whoever is on screen.

 

Seriously, I can't get through a single showing without mocking them one time. I don't know when it started, but it makes it relatively hard to watch movies with others when they notice me fidgeting and turning into a human transformer.

 

I don't know which is worse, blinking hard, for no reason, or copying people, but goddamn it, this is starting to outweigh the other.

Just bump into them on purpose if enough people do it then they'll learn to eventually look up while walking

Wrap yourself up with tape before watching television and unblock me because you can't just be mean to me and run away??????!?!?

 

And stop inviting people to the movies with you if you have this problem

 

E. My pet peeves are people who are dicks to you for no reason and when you confront them about it they run away and hide

This advice has dangerous habitual consequences. :sigh:

 

What?

 

Oh, I'm glad you asked......those same idiots continue this insane behavior as they learn to drive while doing the same thing, often illegally depending where you are, fondling their direct connection to their Cyber-God and it's minions. This could potentially end you up in a serious accident or incrimination and traffic violation....for the practiced, walking response, and immediate impulse to do the same thing with your ride. :miranda:

 

I know, I know.......some types of rage, especially road rage, seem justified in the moment yet......not everyone seems to understand or agree with this. If you have this trouble, seek counseling and an anger management class and go for a degree with it while you are at it.

 

---------------------------

 

C :sarcasm:nform....like a good little nasty play doh or well trained mutt.

 

Nuff said? :sarcasm:

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

I hate people that quote various Policies and Statues as if the things they are speaking of are the same thing as The Laws of Nature, Natural Law or Common Law and not what they actually are. The belief that someone else has to submit themselves to corporate tyranny and admiralty law while on the land with their own inherent rights is simply insane to me and far more frequent of an occurance than one might imagine. Daily.......I witness this atrocity daily and often mutliply times per day.

 

f*ck Sophism and all the trouble it causes as well.

You can't be serious. Cameras inside your home? I've heard of surveillance vans parked outside, and even cold callers, but CCTV? That's surely an invasion of privacy. I hope you're exaggerating for comedic effect, my son.

 

They've got some ego though. Imagine being so fragile as a company that you just can't accept somebody wouldn't watch to watch your fine programming! The nerve! When I moved a few years ago, I actually had two of them show up at my door after I'd ignored countless letters. Over time, the tone of these letter grew more and more hostile, more akin to bullying. I obliged, let them in, and was very deliberate to point out my large TV. They asked me why I had a TV if I didn't watch anything on it. I said it's what all my furniture is pointing at. Some sour looks told me that they weren't big fans of 90s sitcoms, so I then told them it's what my games console is plugged into and I'd appreciate it if they left.

 

A wasted trip, but ultimately terrifying if you're a vulnerable adult. I haven't paid a TV licence in years and I have no intention of doing.

Yeah, guys...stay out of the states if you don't lik that kind of invasion.

 

At least there they are up front about it. Here...the resort to gang stalking, gas lighting and street theater, followed up wit an integral tv system. everywhere you can imagine including through wifi, for the elite where they gamble, aka racketeering on what you'll do when they f*ck with you .

 

[insert eye witness testimony]

 

Now, the people this is done to, well some roll out of it but the majority it destroys their lives and many are either killed or commit suicide.......all filmed for the dog-waggers.

 

These bastard excuse it away and claim they are benefiting mankind in the process by inspiring you with humiliation, pain and torture. Rape, murder, arson.....the list goes on with them.

 

Their methods are criminal as f*ck..nobody cares....as long as it isn't them and they don't want near you if it's you going through it.

 

It doesn't end with recording what you decide to do with your life unless they get to f*ck with your life while they record you.

 

I wish this was some sort of theory or fiction.

 

After you are targeted, and they've got your attention then they really lay it on and threaten you if you talk about it.

 

Quotes:

 

 

Shut up or something might happen to you.

 

 

Some people that talk about this are never seen again......ect....ect...ect.

 

-----------------

 

Anyway, my point is that sort of thing goes from bad to worse in the industrialized world. It's not the cameras that are easy to see that you need to be concerned with most of the time.......but those are annoying as well.

 

This stuff isn't going to end and if it could it wouldn't be ending well.

 

Mad Men with Money, on power trips.

 

 

 

more of the same.....

 

They take their shame out on those they are ashamed of afflicting, vicious circles of pain. They bestow themselves the right to do such things, because they are the special people........at the expense of others lives.

I'm passive aggressive enough to let them - if they want a 24 hour feed of a man scratching his arse and eating leftover takeaway food, that's still higher quality programming available from BBC2.

Oh, no......nothing so simple. There, maybe...

 

Here......they have other ideas for you and they know how to motivate you by one means or another. Even if you try and wait them out, you'll never escape the psychological damages and nightmares and the effects on your loved ones.

 

Just saying......

People who block both sides of the escalator. When I lived in New York and DC people stood on the right and the left side was free for people to walk up/down the escalator if they were in a hurry. Now that I live in the suburbs people just block both sides, standing in place forcing us all to wait until the escalator is finished taking us to the next level.

 

One retort is that the escalator is not that wide to begin with, only two persons width, but it's wide enough for one person to stand and another to walk past without causing any discomfort by brushing against the other person.

 

This is the epitome of a first world problem and it's not that big of a deal, but it's an annoying pet peeve.

I hate vapers, especially when they're in front of you and you seem them puffing like a chimney. I have to cross over when that happens. Can't stand the taste in the air. Almost as bad as smokers.

Me: "Hey, bud! Can you tell me the sum of 2+2?"

 

Bud:

"You see, you have consider the number 2 as a whole, and not a fraction. The following number 2 is also a whole, and not a fraction. A fraction is just part of a number, but your question has whole numbers. Anyway, then you have to add the two numbers. If you have the number 2, say, for example, 2 apples and then you add the remaining sum. Basically, another 2 apples. It doesn't specifically need to be apples but you can use any other fruit. Now if you have two apples then add two more apples, how many apples do you have? You have to imagine this because I don't physically have 2 apples with me. Wait, let me go to the kitchen. Be right back!"

 

Me: "Thanks."

 

 

Most of the time they mean well and trying to be very helpful, but it's too much sometimes! :lol:

You are on the elevator, as it's full of people you must stay quiet on your 40x40cm tiny space because not to touch other people inside. Then the door opens and a random person wants to get into the elevator but it's impossible, no more room left. Although the situation, that person still wants to enter the tiny space and makes everybody move and now you are squeezed and bumping to other people because of that stupid person which couldn't wait next elevator.

 

Or, you are in the highway, heading into a toll. You choose the lane which haves less cars but MISTAKE! It turns out that the car in front of yours is driven by an idiot who didn't prepare the money or the card to pay that toll so now you are waiting minutes for that guy to pay while the other lanes cars have no problem and advance well.

Medic Alert Tags, necklaces and braclets both, are made of very cheap and easy to break from daily use materials. For God's Sake....it's a life saving medical indicator not a three times a week or risk being ignored and dying by way of compelled medical tax.

When I was in middle school I had some issue with reading more or less keeping my attention so my teacher suggested that I listen to the audio version of the book while I follow along with the book itself.

 

Sometimes I still do that if it's a super long book and I'm tired of reading it I'll listen to a few chapters on audio while driving or something but I mostly still read the actual book

Annoying phone calls from a call centre located in India that works for your broadband provider trying to push a promotional bundle on you. I'm perfectly happy with my broadband-only cheapest Mb option. Had someone call me from Virgin Media trying to persuade me to upgrade my broadband box to the new one, with a free phone line and tv box for 12 months. I said multiple times I'm fine with what I currently have and I don't want the promotional stuff or upgrade if I have to pay for it later on.

 

The Mb upgrade would've cost me more off the bat, which I can't afford. Before they hung up they asked me why I didn't want it, and I said I can't afford it and can't be bothered cancelling the promotional stuff after 12 months. Then they said that annoying 'yeah but' multiple times. Then after I said I didn't want it again they asked me for another reason why I didn't want it, to which I said I didn't want it. Wasted 10 minutes of my time at work.
