Re: What irritates you?

This is really specific but...

There's this road by my house that goes from two lanes to one, and right after the merging zone there's a road on the right. This car kept slowing down and staying in the right but wasn't using a turning signal so I didn't know if he really was turning or not. I didn't want to pass him either in case he really wasn't turning, and then we'd be two wide on a single lane road.

So I guess people that don't use turning signals. It's not hard, douche.

Congratulations, you had sex without protection. You did the one thing that man has known how to do since the beginning of fucking time. Cavemen with no fire, wheels, or tools still knew how to have babies - you're not that fucking special.

This is nothing against babies or procreation - but I'm tired of people acting like having a kid is something they should get a medal for and it makes them so much better and more enlightened than the rest of us because "we have no idea what it's like to create a life!"
Amen.

I work in a grocery store. Most people who write checks are elderly people. In 10 to 20 years nobody will be writing checks, unless they're trying to scam the store. Trust me, they think they're smarter than the checker. I can spot a check scammer as soon as you start to unload your cart onto my belt. If you have an out of area check and are buying lots of beer and meat, guess what, your most likely trying to scam the store. It's a very interesting thing to. I work for a family owned store. We take local checks only. When someone comes through with almost $175 worth of stuff and we deny their check (usually out of area) we offer the Credit or Debit option. 99.99% the time, they don't have either option on them. We tell them sorry and send them on their way. We then call the other store and tell them to keep a look out for the people who were just in.





Not at our store. We've yet to install a system that writes the whole check for you. I know what your talking about, I've seen the system at Costco. In a 8 hour shift I can take no checks, or can take as many as 5 or 6 six checks. Most checks are from elderly people.
Yeah, it was the same lady. And she had a smartphone. I might be able to excuse an older phone given the fact that some people have replaced landlines with cells and you can actually get public assistance or private charity to pay/provide an older phone now. Total luxury item. And I bet she payed for that annoying "Frog" ring tone from like 5 years ago too.

No excuse for this in the modern world. I was a cashier for a little over a year at two different jobs. We used SCAN (Shared Check Auth Network) which basically ran every check like a debit card and electronically presented each check for payment instantly. Really only mom and pops are bad about this.

That is special. Entire nations have flaked and crusted in the hair around my navel. That is special.

And I want you to think about that, you two-egg-carrying beings out there with that holier-than-thou, we-have-the-gift-of-life attitude. I have tossed universes, in my underpants, while napping. That is special."
One of the top 10 comedians of all time...IMHO.


So more things that annoy me:

Bicyclists who hog the road. I don't give a fuck if you have the same right of way, have some common fucking decency and a sense of self preservation and at least move over to the edge of the road on a road with a 55mph speed limit. The same thing goes for mopeds.

People who throw more into the accessories for their old piece of shit car than the car is actually worth. There is an epidemic here of 80s cars, jacked up, no exhausts, painted like NASCARs, spinning rims, systems, etc...spinning rims were fucking 10 years ago.

Aggressive salespeople, be it in store or over the phone. Best Buy has gotten especially aggressive. When I say I'm "just looking" it means I'm just looking. I've already done my shopping online and am pretty sure what I'm buying. I probably know more about it than you do. I'm just making sure there isn't a better product there or making my final decision. Over the phone, with telemarketers or when I call to order something, upselling me will not work. Sorry man, the way I earned a higher commission was helping people, not upselling them. There's a fine line to walk and most people who work in sales don't know it.

I've probably said this before, but people who can't parent. Doesn't matter where or when, restaurants come to mind first. That shit is going to spiral out of control by the time your kid is a teenager.

And along that vain, people who breastfeed/change diapers in public...and by public, I mean for the whole world to see. Nobody wants to see your saggy postpartem titty or smell your shitty diaper. I don't give a fuck what the law says.

Loud exhausts. Your piece of shit 1990 Honda CRX is still a piece of shit. Even if you have a huge truck or a Camaro, you're just fucking stupid and rude.

Online dating. I've deleted all of my profiles. The few dates, out of dozens of girls I messaged, were all weird bitches with hangups or baggage, who lied about who they really were. I dated a girl for like two weeks before I found out she had two kids. OOPS. I guess me putting "Sorry, no kids, please" in my profile meant nothing and her lying about it just confirmed to me she wasn't worth it. Just a bunch of fake people out there and/or psychos.

People who order the large/supersized meal at a fast food joint with a diet soda. Oh, really?

This one is kind of personal. My family irritates me, calling me lazy and self-entitled because I won't take a job for $7.25-10/hr. No, it's because I CAN'T FUCKING LIVE on that. I pay nearly $1,000/month in student loans. $10/hr translates to about 1500/month in net income working full time. Simple as that. Just not enough to pay rent, utilities, and other bills. For about three months I was working two lower paying jobs nearly 20 hours a day, 4 or 5 days a week. I couldn't have kept that going for much longer.

School buses. Getting stuck behind one sucks. They stop for like 3 minutes each time, drive slow, god forbid they pull over and let some cars go by.

Rubbernecking in traffic...there is nothing worse than seeing a green light when traffic is backed up, edging forward only to see it turn red just before you get to the line. I'd rather sit still than rubberneck.

Re: What irritates you?

Relating to the checks thing, I hate places that still don't accept debit/credit! There is one in town I can think of; a super popular Cuban restaurant that's so good, and they let you byob and it's always packed, but it's cash or check only. Get with the times!

I have no problem with sharing the road and bicyclers, but many of them seem to be such an elitist group, acting like they're more entitled to shit. Not from seeing them in the road but whenever I read some opinion article or letter to the editor, they act like they're better than drivers. Vegetarians sometimes do this too.

edit: add vegetarians to my list

Exactly. There's a group here that is claiming a right under the state constitution to have bike lanes on every road. Don't you think that's going too far? And what ever happened to the sidewalk? Most casual bike riders stick to the sidewalks...no problem with those types.

Alot of times with not accepting debit/credit cards businesses have decided that it would be more detrimental to them to take them than it would be to not take them. They have to pay exorbitant fees to processors/clearinghouses and other vendors to accept credit and debit cards, which cuts into their profits. I know when I was doing well in the flea market business before I sold out it was like $199/month or .65/transaction. I could see how this could add up. I find that the most reasonably priced places don't take cards, and that's why. The credit card companies and banks are evil, but we already knew that.

Re: What irritates you?

I can't stand elitist bicyclists. It especially pisses me off when they run red lights and stop signs and then look at me like I'm a massive ass when I honk at them. I've also noticed that a lot of bicyclist think they always have the right of way no matter what because they're on a fucking bike. If you're going to behave like a car on the road then you need to follow the laws that people in cars are forced to follow.

I do this, but it's just because I prefer diet soda to regular, not because I'm under some delusion that getting the diet Coke makes it healthy.
