    It's time to have a good gripe. I've got a cold, a headache and I feel like crap (courtesy of my bitch of a girlfriend I might add!). Moan your heart out in this thread guys and gals, let it all out. I'll get the ball rolling.

    1) Cats. Pointless.
    2) Over-seriousness.
    3) People with no sense of humour.
    4) People who try and take the piss and don't meet 50/50.
    5) People who sit in public places playing ring tones on their phone.
    6) Not indicating on roundabouts.
    7) People who have no manners.
    8) People who smell and have poor hygiene.
    9) Compensation culture.
    10) People who arrange to go somewhere then back out at the last minute (especially so repeat offenders, I'd love to stab them in the jaw).
    11) Tabloid newspapers.
    12) Unknowledgeable football fans annoy me constantly.
    13) People who prang someone's car and drive away without leaving contact details.
    14) People calling Spaghetti Bolognese - 'Spag Bol' GRRRR!
    15) Condoms.
    16) How we can't celebrate being English these days.
    17) Amy Winehouse and Pete Doherty. Pricks.
    18) People who spend about 4 hours getting ready to go out then are as dull as dishwater when you get into a pub/club.
    19) Homophobia. In fact, intolerance in general.
    20) The fact England can't win football games.

    I'll stop there for now. That's a good starter. Expect a bigger list later!

    Wholeheartedly agree. I've a friend who does that all the time. Making plans with said person usually involves spending the evening alone.

    To be continued.

    -Homework
    -The fact that I may end up screwing up my life by not doing said homework (please, don't joke about this one)
    -The sound of people chewing and drinking (sounds like freaking nails on a blackbord to me)
    -Snoring (nearly killed my uncle two nights ago cause he wouldn't stop)
    -Lack of sleep (makes me irritable)
    -Insominia (The cause of the above problem)
    -Every single time I see a clasemates grade it's higher then mine. f***ing depressing) (sorry for the swearing, just that sort of night for me :()

    Several things:

    1. Insurance companies that insist that I MUST be a bad driver because I'm male and 22 and charge accordingly.
    2. O2
    3. People who have their car windows open and their music playing full volume. If it was decent music then it wouldn't be too bad, but it always seem to be drum and bass rubbish.
    4. Bad drivers.
    5. Chick flicks/lit. Especially when women attempt to persuade you to read/watch them and when you refuse because their storyline is pointless and unrealistic call you a neanderthal.
    6. Badly written books in general.
    7. Bad customer service.

    Sure that there's plenty more but will stop before I sound like too much of a grumpy old man.

    1) The mediocre lunch I'm eating right now
    2) Poepel hoo kant spel and hoo shud no betr
    3) Brits
    4) Non-Brits
    5) This stain on my shirt. No, not that one. The other one.

    And I have to point out the irony in this:
    ...from the guy who started a thread about things that annoy him (i.e. he can't tolerate). :p

    Ah, but I never claimed to be tolerant, while at the same time demonstrating otherwise. :p

    Ah, gotcha! Yes, I can be dense at times. But in my defense, I can't think and chew at the same time. :D

    -People who are the same age, hate the same things and have the same problems as me. :lol:

    -The price of public transports.
    -People who speak loudly to their phones in said public transports.
    -The price of console gaming.
    -Balding.
    -Some neighbour who's always smoking in the stairs.
    -TV ads.
    -Store guards who look at me suspiciously.

    [​IMG] People who ask you if you're sure you've spelt your name right. :rolleyes: I'm nearly twenty, I can spell Charlotte on my own thank you. Yes, I can spell my surnames as well, yes I have more than one so you can put both there, thank you. Yes it is important, yes it is the name on all my documents. If you have a problem with it I blame the parents.

    Seriously. The amount of times people ask me if it's spelt right I want to hit them.

    People who think people in wheelchairs are there because they're too stupid to know how to walk. Had my fair share of morons here as well, they always talk to you in a childish manner or to the person pushing you. It's ridiculous.

    People who CONSISTANTLY rely on IGNORANCE in the complete and utter security they are correct because "Well it's common knowledge!", it's only common because morons such as themselves start e-mailing useless crap around as 'fact' and recieving it in kind so... oh wait a minute! IT MUST BE TRUE! Alert the press! (Spiders being the most annoying one for me :rolleyes: most people are such idiots about them. It's one thing being afraid of them, it's another to talk out your arse.)

    Social intolerance in the forms of racist, sexism, homphobia, religious bigotry, etc. Had enough hassle in twenty years to not want anything to do with such intolerant fools. If you need to pick on a difference which doesn't affect you then you need a reality check. I may not find black people particularly attractive in comparison to white, and I may find christian fanatics annoying. But somehow justifying comparisons and preferences to immorality and depravity is simply disgraceful.

    Anybody else but me see a correlation between the last one and the first two? (And no, as per Magister's request, I'm not joking.)

    OK, this is not me trying to be a jerk -- what does this mean? Do you mean people who try to urinate and miss the target urinal or toilet? Or am I missing something British here?

    Here's my list:

    1: Cats -- you and I agree totally on this one, Barmy.
    2: Incompetant drivers. Grrrf.
    3: Students who argue with me about simple points in English grammar by saying "in MY language, . . . " I want to say "That's great about your language, I'm glad it works for you, but this is ENGLISH and it doesn't frigging work that way!"
    4: Smartass teens who think they know WAYYYY more than adults do about things despite having no life experience and the attention span of gophers. Note that this is a small minority of teens.
    5: The compensation culture that Barmy mentioned -- you can't even say "I'm sorry" these days without getting nailed in the pocketbook.
    6: Governments being generous with MY money. Making me poor in an effort to help the poor just doubles the number of poor people.
    7: Stupid people in general.
    8: People who think that a whole new wardrobe every season is a necessity. There's clean and presentable and then there's indulgence.
    9: My Ex.

    Hmmm....this seems like the perfect opportunity to bust BA's chops...not because I'm a jerk, but because is soooo much fun. :D I think I'll comment on all of his annoyances before listing my own... :grin:

    1) Cats. Pointless. I disagree. Cat's are low maintenance, clean, and don't do half of the dumb stuff that dogs do.
    2) Over-seriousness. I agree with that...however, when someone is *too* serious, it's fun to mess with them! :D
    3) People with no sense of humour. Everyone has a sense of humor...there’s just might be the opposite of yours.
    4) People who try and take the piss and don't meet 50/50. I was expecting not to understand some of your post...and here it is. :p Outside of the UK, piss = pee = urine...so I don't really know what you're talking about.
    5) People who sit in public places playing ring tones on their phone. Yeah, that's annoying...unless it's a cool song that sounds fairly decent...but most of time it's just bad.
    6) Not indicating on roundabouts. How about roundabouts in general? I hate those damn things!
    7) People who have no manners. You must get annoyed quite often...no one has any manners anymore.
    8) People who smell and have poor hygiene. Define "smell". IT's not really annoying to me when someone stinks like B.O....though it is gross. I find it annoying when someone smells like they bathed in cologne/perfume.
    9) Compensation culture. Errr....what?
    10) People who arrange to go somewhere then back out at the last minute. Agreed. Flaky people need to get shot.
    11) Tabloid newspapers. What, you don't want to know what the princes ate for lunch...or that one of them farted in a large group? :rolleyes: But yes, they are *quite* annoying.
    12) Unknowledgeable football fans annoy me constantly. Meh...some people just don't care about sports...so that's not really annoying to me. At least they're trying to get in to it.
    13) People who prang someone's car and drive away without leaving contact details. That's not annoying...that's infuriating! :flaming:
    14) People calling Spaghetti Bolognese - 'Spag Bol' GRRRR! I'm not going to touch that one...
    15) Condoms. Never had to worry about those...I could never find one big enough... :p
    16) How we can't celebrate being English these days. Same thing goes for any "white" country. The minorities can be celebrate their origins, and their home country...but if a white American celebrates similarly on any day other than the 4th of July, he takes s*** for it. :nolike:
    17) Amy Winehouse and Pete Doherty. Pricks. Don't know who this Pete guy is, but Winehouse is pretty annoying.
    18) People who spend about 4 hours getting ready to go out then are as dull as dishwater when you get into a pub/club. Sounds like 90% of women to me...at least *before* they get drunk. :p
    19) Homophobia. In fact, intolerance in general. Splunge already covered that one for me.
    20) The fact England can't win football games. Maybe because we stole your only good player. :evil:

    As for me:
    1. Oil companies
    2. The Middle East
    3. Rednecks
    4. This 100+ degree heat we've been having
    5. Old people that drive in the "fast" lane while going 20mph slower than everyone else. :bang:
    6. People that don't respect other people's belongings
    7. People that hate guns, and try to force their beliefs on everyone else....speaking of which...
    8. People that try to force their beliefs on others (I hate that the Mormons run this state)
    9. The color green (unless it's on a traffic signal or in my wallet)
    10. Emo p***ies

    That's all for now. :rolling:

    Things that don't work properly.

    Making stupid mistakes.

    Freaking drivers that don't slow down until the last moment at a crosswalk making you expect them to just drive past, which is fine, if they had actually done it. Instead they drive up, making you stop and wait for them to pass and then they slow down, a little bit, making you confused and finally they stop and you dare to cross. Jeebus! How hard is it to just cruise past? It takes at least ten seconds longer to figure out if the freakig driver is going to stop or not than it would to just zip past. It is possible to cross the street behind a car as well as in front.

    [​IMG] If you take the piss out of someone or something you're making fun out of them/it.

    Basically people who pick on others and mock them but then get touchy if anybody retaliates.

    I guess my actual list consists of:

    1. Needy people
    2. People who don't need me
    3. Drunken roommates/friends
    4. Aging
    5. Evangelical Christians
    6. NRA

    .... for now

    Vinyl records that hiss, click and pop.

    Guitar strings that won't stay tuned.

    Guitar frets that buzz.

    Drumsticks that are not straight and balanced.

    Any kind of audio/playback/amplification equipment that sounds cheap & "tinny." A thin sound is OK if it's supposed to be that way.

    Those who use the numbers 2/4 instead of the prepositions to/for.

    Those who are lazy and refuse to use proper grammar and punctuation on the internet. Everyone makes mistakes and typos, but some feel the need to "prove" that they are uneducated.

    Running out of Half and Half for my coffee. I won't even contemplate running out of the former.

    TV evangelists - The best thing they can do for God and everyone else is to go back to selling cars.
