What really pisses you off? Rate Topic: -----

It usually takes a lot to get me worked up and piss me off. However, there are a few things that are relatively minor and shouldn't bother me, but they really get me going.

1) Being called "Sir" or "Mr. Roberts." I know people are trying to be polite, and I don't know what I'd rather have strangers call me, but I still hate it. I'm just Nick. Or Asshat. Or Douchebag. I prefer any of those to Sir or Mister.

2) People parking cars. I just put this as one large group, because several things set me off in regards to people parking.
I hate when they take up 2 spots to park a car.
I hate when they park so close to me that I can't get my door open.
Unless they are handicapped and there are no open handicapped spots, I detest when people stop and wait for someone to back out of a space to get a spot when there are open spots 5 or 10 feet up the same aisle.
Most of all, I LOATHE when people back into parking spots. Why back up traffic and spend 10 minutes backing into (and pulling out and backing in again) a spot that is barely wider than your car, when you can pull right in and then back into a much larger, much more forgiving space when you are leaving? It's fucking stupid and doesn't make a bit of sense to me.

3) Coupons that require you to buy more than 1 item to use it...especially coupons that are something like "$1.00 off 8 frozen dinners."

So, what do you have?

- Catch phrases at work with no meaning like "it is what it is" and "at the end of the day".
- People that make twice as much money as me asking to bum a cigarette.
- People that don't have a fucking clue how to play blackjack and sit next to me at a $25 table. Go ahead, hit that 14 against a 6, and when you bust the whole table it will give me a good reason to punch you in the fucking throat.
- My mother-in-law.
- People that call me on my office phone and start their conversation with "are you in the office?"
- Touchpads on laptops.
- My stepson leaving a drop of milk in a gallon jug in the fridge
- My stepson leaving an empty gallon of milk on the kitchen counter
- Dejan
- Virtually every caller on every sports talk show
- The inbound clusterfuck during rush hour right before the Fort Pitt tunnel
- Duquesne Light
- The cost of all day parking at every garage in the city

So, what do you have?


Damn, Nick. This is a topic I could go on and on all day about. I'll continue to add to the thread as specific things come to mind, but in general I hate stupid people and the stupid things that they do. Since I believe that about 90% of people are extremely stupid, I find myself getting pissed off at the stupid things that they do more often than not.

Trey,

If you have someone riding your ass in the left lane and you are going over the speed limit, then obviously the guy behind you wants to go faster so get the fuck out of the way.... simple.

People who drive 60 in a 55 zone and hold traffic up in the left lane or ride side by side with someone in the right lane needs to have the pit maneuver performed on their ass.

Get the fuck over.

Nothing personal, I just hate the fuckers that slow down the left fuckin lane. Its called the fast lane for a purpose.

1. The fact that we are sapient animals with personalities trying to live in what is essentially a global hive. It's dumb.
2. The fact that I'm treated like I'm insane whenever this comes up.
3. The fact that I might be insane and not know it yet.
4. The fact that my own mother is always trying to get me to quit writing.
5. Democrats and Republicans
6. People who drive under the speed limit
7. Clint Hurdle
8. A.J. Burnett
9. People who attack science and haven't the slightest idea how science works
10. Conversations about movies, popular music and ESPECIALLY celebrity gossip -- When I say I don't want to know, I goddamn well mean I don't want to know. If you can't talk about sports or something substantial, then I don't need to talk to anyone for the time being.

I have this feeling that you would do well at any establishment that would happen to have a "Star Wars trivia night"

I'll add another one to the parking category. People that wait for a closer spot in the parking lot at the gym. I just don't fucking get it. you're there to work out, yet you will sit in the middle of the parking lot and wait for a closer spot so you don't have to walk any farther.


Also, assholes that walk on a treadmill at the gym while talking on the cell phone or reading a magazine. If you have enough breath left to talk on the cell phone, you're using the machine wrong.

Your point is well taken, but this is a right lane issue too.

I mean, I wouldn't pay money for it, but it's not as bad as slow drivers or celebrity gossip.
