What really grinds your gears?

 

 

I was thinking about this as I was driving around yesterday.

 

I'll start:

 

What really grinds my gears is when people drive ridiculously slow.

What really grinds my gears is when people are walking in the street instead of the perfectly open sidewalk! MOVE BITCH OR I'LL RUN YOU OVER!

What really grinds my gears, is when people wear socks with sandals.. I just can't...

 

 

Now it's your turn! What annoys you??

- With you on slow drivers. A little under the speed limit is fine, 15mph in a 40 is not. Always seems to happen when I can't overtake as well...

 

- Having to use the Central Line on the London Underground in rush hour. *shudders* No merci.

- People with no respect for punctuality. We agreed 8, be there at 8 or flipping text and let me know you're running late. I don't want to stand in the cold and rain for 20 minutes longer than I have to because you couldn't be bothered to get your shit together.

 

- Headphones so loud I can hear your crappy taste in music. Your headphones are appalling quality, you're damaging your hearing and your taste sucks. Stop subjecting me to it. I probably have a headache and don't want to deal with you.

 

- Passive aggression. Yeah, please, send an email round the whole office reminding us that something in the fridge was yours but make it very very clear that you're not accusing anyone and you really don't mind, then label all future purchases and bring it up from now until the end of time.

 

 

A lot of things really, far too many to mention. I'm a very intolerant person. I'll return as and when things irritate me.

What really grind my gears is when I need a higher resolution screen than 1920x1080 but I don't have the money to afford a 2560x1440 resolution screen...

SLOW WALKERS.

 

I will punch you in the back of the head, and kick you in the back of the knees so I can walk over your slow crawling ass. MOVE.

-Stupid/ignorant people

-people who talk really loud on the phone

- slow walkers (again), I need to get to class from a completely different part of the building that requires me to go outside and up 6 floors, MOVE FASTER!

-people who you're forced to work with in a group who do absolutely nothing

-people who wine about their problems all day every day

- people who can't figure out how to do the simplest things with technology ("How do I turn it on again?)

-horrible grammar

- when I can't find any clothes in my size and the only ones left are the really huge ones (XXXL)

-flats that are pretty but I can't wear because they don't like fitting on my feet (even when they're the correct size)

-jacked up prices on items 

-crying infants (it's fine if the parents are trying to stop them, but if they aren't it really grinds my gears)

 

There are probably more, I just can't think of them at this time.

The things that really grind my gears are bullies, ignorance, hypocrisy, and supremacy of any kind.

Otherwise I'm quite a tolerant person.

Probably when people choose to blatantly play their music in public on speaker. It's really annoying and you could get a pair of headphones for 10$   :mellow:

Ah yes, all the times that I have to take apart a gun... :p

 

Related - Those teeny tiny screwdrivers for glasses. I can never find ours when I need it and this means we have about 7. And the screws are so tiny, they're impossible to get into place even with my little hands. Urgh.

 

 

-When at the end of your day before you leave, someone needs your help at the very last second

Urgh, the phone ringing at 4.59pm on a Friday afternoon, trying to ignore and the office staring at you expectantly. If you've left it til this late, I expect it can wait until Monday.

When the sign on the door to my place of work says CLOSED and people walk right past it and yank on the door anyway.  We are CLOSED motherfucker.  CLOSED.  And then they stare at you through the door, so you go to the door and unlock it , peeking your head out, clearly with the body language that says "I'm going to tell you sorry, we're closed, you are not allowed to come in" and they insinuate themselves inside anyway and take up an hour of your time.

 

Getting promoted to manager and then having every single decision I make undermined and my superiors going behind my back to change things without telling me.

 

When people crumple up paper before throwing it away.

 

When people say shit like, "I couldn't live without air conditioning.  I would die."  No, you wouldn't.  You'd be hot for a while, and then you would cope just like everyone else on the planet.

 

When you're behind some slow-ass motherfucker who speeds up when you get to a passing lane and then slows back down once it's back to a no-passing zone.

 

Along the same lines, when someone passes you and then slows down to go SLOWER than you were going before.

 

Oboes.  I fucking hate oboes.

 

I'll come back later.  I hate a lot of things.

Nobody likes oboes. Not even oboeists. And that's why the Duck is the worst character in Peter and the Wolf.

When my cat insists on taking a shit in the litter box while I'm in the midst of cleaning it. Thank you asshole.

 

When you are driving and someone is trying to get over in your lane so you slow down to allow them in and they don't do a courtesy wave, so I wave and yell YOU'RE WELCOME! (even though they can't hear me)

 

When people spinkle when they tinkle and aren't sweeties and don't wipe the seatie

 

Costco and Walmart in general, come on people to world isn't ending, you don't have to be so aggressive.
