What irritates you?

This usually happens a few times a week with me, but for some reason, I get really irritated when people can't say a simple "thanks" or "thank you" when you hold a door open for them. If I physically stop and hold the door until you reach it, the least you could do is grunt. Ungrateful people I tell you. I'm just gonna start saying "you're welcome" even if they don't say anything.

So, what irritates you?

Re: What irritates you?

When people eat in front of me. Doesn't matter who, they all fucking piss me off. The sound of chewing/drinking/slurping/crunching drives me insane.

Re: What irritates you?

Re: What irritates you?

We had a huge pet peeves thread a while back that had a lot of good ones. And a separate one on driving, but god it would take me all day listing all those.

Groups of kids that talk loud in a quiet environment, such as a restaurant or in class. In LA there's often a certain ethnic group (Persians, n/r, it's truth at least for my age group) that hangs out in packs and seemingly everyone in the bunch yells in their own language and laughs at near 90 decibals. It's so inconsiderate.

People who talk in class in general while the prof is lecturing. If I hear the conversation and it's not related to the material, I will be the first to say "shut the fuck up".

Bros. I think it's just SoCal Valley thing, but kids who wear plaid, high socks and shorts, sunglasses and douchey haircuts, date ugly tramp stamp bitches, and act like they're the shit when the majority of them that I know are like, in 5th year community college. Die.

Skateboarders on campus, usually acting like they own the sidewalk. What are you, 11? I've been hit twice this quarter by these douchers. I looked one of them in the eye and kicked their skateboard to the side, without a word.

When I hold the door open for one person, I expect them to pass through with a smile. However, when I'm walking out of class and a whole group of 200 is rushing out and I hold the door open, YOU TAKE THE DOOR AND HOLD IT OPEN FOR THE NEXT GUY. Often someone just waltzes right through, and I end up clogging up the line, sure enough I'm holding the door for the next three people. I'm not a fucking doorman.

Cynics.

People who can't hold a conversation. I understand some people are less talented than others, BUT HOLY GOD at dinner when someone asks how's you and so and so or how's working at so and so you reply "it's good" and "we're good" it makes me want to throw my hot soup in your face.

I agree with you Jordan, I'm just gonna start saying "you're welcome" to people, but that happens rarely to me as everyone's usually polite as far as please and thank you, which is surprising for LA.

This is why I don't hold doors, or do anything nice for strangers, unless it's at work or somewhere that I need to act like a human being.

This.

Most of my irritations involve driving, which I'm proud to say I won't be doing much of where I'm moving. Examples include:
  1. People who don't use the turn signal or leave it on for no reason
  2. people who tailgate me when I'm driving 10-25 mph over the speed limit
  3. anyone who drives a minivan
  4. people who don't know what to do at a 4 way stop sign
  5. people who double park
  6. dogs barking, cats meowing, kids crying...I will actually say something to someone at a restaurant if their kid is annoying

The fact that I'm often surrounded by people that based on the scenario should be smart, but are just fucking stupid. You might have done really well on the SAT math was, but you fucking suck at everything else.

Re: What irritates you?

When there is a gap between the person walking through a door and myself, and somebody is walking towards me and they go through the open door on the right instead of opening THEIR door. I was always under the impression there were two doors for a reason.

This is a good one. I hate when people feel the need to practically devour the fucking microphone. You don't have to shove it halfway down your throat for us to hear you.

People that don't bicycle professionally but wear the gear like they're Lance fucking Armstrong when they ride around town.

Well plaid is acceptable sometimes, but these guys abuse it. Imagine these guys, either in those exact shirts or in baggy plaid. The West Valley is infested.

Makes me laugh to. I wear a Dickies High Visibility Shirt and a pair of $10 sweat pants from Target. It works for me and if I'm hit while riding on the street the cop will take one look at my shirt and ask the person "How could you not see him?"

the worst part of it was that she couldn't believe that she wouldn't be able to use her cell phone/use the internet for the entire week that she's in costa rica.

I feel like that's a legit complaint, I never seem to function without internet, I proudly admit that's my weakness.


This thread is awesome, I could ramble forever about pet peeves. There are so many different subgroups.

-class peeves
-manners
-driving peeves
-social gathering peeves
-work peeves
-facebook/texting peeves

And I'm the type of person who is always optimistic and thinks every person is awesome and worth knowing if given a chance, I can't imagine the peeves of those who actually hate people

Re: What irritates you?

People who text 30 seconds into a movie when said movie requires you to pay attention to the plot and then they go onto claim, "I didn't like it, it didn't catch my interest." I literally had a 45 minute argument on this with my friend who does this all the time.

Driving - Ummm....so many. Defcon got most of them. But ones he didn't get were slowing way the hell down when either merging on or off the freeway, or slowing way the hell down before making a right turn in which I have to slow down to 10 mph. Also people who creep through the parking lot when there are no empty spaces trying to decide what to do.

When people make super corny facebook statuses about how much they super dooper love their significant other.

People who think they're entitled to everything.

Losing internet connection.

People who only go up or down one floor on the elevator. Take the stairs.

People who don't understand proper tipping etiquette at bars/restaurants.

People who are clearly trying way too hard to please the professor. Happens all the time in my Film Studies classes.

I have countless others. You'll be hearing more from me tomorrow.

Re: What irritates you?

People who think it's o.k to park in the red zone to drop off a passenger or pick a passenger up. Or, stay in the red zone while the passenger goes into the store to shop. It's a fucking red zone people. Just because it's raining out doesn't mean the red zone is now null and void. I'd love to see a fire truck respond to an emergency and push a car out of the way with their truck. There's these inventions called rain coats and umbrellas. Use them or stay home.

All of my pet peeves are work related (doing live sound).

-People who hold a microphone down by their stomach and talk as if they are in a fucking library.

-People who assume I can deliver messages to the band/get them backstage/announce Billy Bob's bachelor party

-People who think it's ok to set their beer/water on a $20,000 mixing board. Seriously, it's 2011, do you understand the concept of moisture and electronics. If it fucks up, the show is over. ... similarly people who put drinks on a case that has "NO DRINKS" in bright yellow gaff tape.

-Drunk bitches who ask "So, are you like the DJ?"

-The band leaves the stage, the house lights are on and the music has stopped for 20 minutes and people ask "So, are they done?"

-Drunk people in general.

Not work related but the biggest ever is people who do not accelerate when getting on the highway.

There are more but this list could go on forever. I'm just a bitter soul

When I write more in-depth reviews in the movie thread, I try not get overly pretentious with why I thought the movie was either so good or so bad. I probably fail at points. But today for example, one of my classmates just took it to another level when we were having a discussion on the film we watched last week and how it related to the idea that laughter is the best medicine - which if he said only that, I would have been fine with since it's a pretty common theory that people are very familiar with....but he had to make it a point that it was a Freudian theory, and it's just like...come on, dude. If it weren't such a well-known theory that most people weren't familiar with, the Freud mention would be suitable and potentially heighten the discussion, but in this case, it was very clear that he was just trying to impress the teacher.

people who dont stop at red lights before they make a right turn. Um... hello there may be pedestrians and i know you are only looking to see if a car is going to hit you. Get over the 3 seconds it saves you and think about the person you might run over and kill because you are impatient you stupid fuck.
