People who don't use to and too correctly, and don't know the difference between your and you're.   Hell, throw in the "their,they're, and there".   I tend to read posts word for word so I pick u

Pubes on the bar of soap.

I apologise.

It's weird how when you finally live in a world with a variant of the classic scifi omnidevice, it's just...normal and uninteresting that it exists.

When people use cliches as conversation pieces. They are pretty much the LCD of chatting, I would prefer that they didn't talk at all, makes me cringe.

Especially the ones who say "the 90s/80s/70s were better times, simpler times". No, f*ck off, that's just because you grew up in that era and it's what you know, you were an ignorant little child.

My best years were in the 70's :)

Oh my...there is no beating the 70's...at all.

 

 

The generation gap and bitching at the previous generation took a pause during my years.   The generation above us didn't look down and say "those crazy kids".  Keep in mind I'm from the generation that was raised by the generation where the previous generation used to say "those crazy kids and their rock n roll". 

 

it really boils down to millennials f*cking everything up.  My wife and I have this conversation all the time;  There has never been a more hated generation...and it's not just by the generation above them.  Everyone seems to hate millennials...even millennials.

 

and please everyone - dont take that the wrong way and defend millennials.  Maybe...just maybe not every millennial is a "millennial".  Nah what I'm sayin'?

Someone had to raise millenials. I always like to pretend I'm really educated and quote Socrates/Aristotle/Who-the-Greek-ever when arguing with people about this:

Quote
'The children now love luxury; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise. Children are tyrants, not servants of the households. They no longer rise when their elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannize over their teachers.'

It's been going on since forever. I just hate it when older people talk about "Those were the days" and "Kids these days".

Sour Grapes. Literally.

 

Does no-one taste test them before they are packaged and go on sale. Grapes are supposed to be little bobbles of loveliness, not facial deformity inducing tongue repellents.

 

I've thrown them out, not playing that kind of Russian roulette with my taste buds.

Tired of atheist vs religious debates. None of you will respect the other group's reasoning so who tf cares? Why do you even bother arguing? Just don't kill each other and we'll be alright.

When supermarkets keep changing the recipe for own brand foods. Iceland Supermarket has gone to sh*t lately with their microwave meals. The curry tastes crap, and the spaghetti Bolognese looks like someone puked up on some frozen spaghetti.

The masterclass ads on Youtube. R.L. Stine's was cool to watch, though. A nice blast from the past.

"It is was it is".

 

Everything is what it is.  Don't be lazy in your communication.  How about expressing yourself and elaborate a bit.

I'll be honest, that's what I tell people when I'm trying to move some stash that's not particularly great, while not being bad or redundant either. I was selling an 8-out 9v power supply box today and the dude asked if it was a good brick, and I couldn't think of anything to say but "well, it is what it is" 😛  It'll power your units and that's it

Well you at least articulated and elaborated.  Then "it is what it is" was just filler.

When the person cutting your hair hands reek of cigarettess and they stop every 20 seconds to talk and gossip with the others cutters.

 

i don’t mind if they talk as long as they keep cutting and watching what they’re doing.

 

I tip based on two things how well they listed to what I asked and how much attention they paid to the actual task.

 

tips range between $2 & $6 this girl got $2

Memes do my crack in.

I'll say "Yess, thank you!" in text, before you get swamped with meme responses. I thought I was the only person who thought this. To coin another popular phrase, they do my shed in.

They're f*cking tedious, ain't they?

Well I like to think of things from an artist's (probably pretentious) perspective and I kinda think of it like this...

 

Give a hammer and chisel to a sculptor and they'll turn a lump of rock into a piece of art. Give a hammer and chisel to the average person and they'll turn the lump of rock into a pile of broken lumps of rock.

 

I am on Imgur a couple of times a day and have never seen anything other than lumps of rock... so yeah, it gets a bit much.

When people ask  me my age at work and yammer about how I look like I should be in college or high school like that's a compliment.

People who take sports (particularly football) so damn seriously, to the point of calling someone "god" because of their skills.

 

People who get so mad at asinine things like losing at multiplayer games.

 

People who try so hard to fit into society that will do anything in order to get approval from others.

 

People who parrot the sh*t others say without caring / checking if it's actually true or not.

 

Man, basically I described my brother.

When people strongly and openly criticize the fast food industry and tell others that they should eat healthier yet they drink alcoholic beverages, use some form of tobacco product or illicit drugs, pierce their body, get tattoos, go in tanning beds, and/or dye their hair. Yes, I know that fast food is very unhealthy but all the others are even further in the category of being unhealthy. I’m sorry I’m going off on a rant here but it’s hypocritical on SO many levels!
