Re: You know what really grinds my gears?

People who are loudmouths and have no filter when they speak, and say it's OK because "that's just the way they are".

Or worse yet, people who let loudmouths get away with it because "that's just the way they are".

Plus:
  • People who walk through a door you've held open for them without saying thanks, or even acknowledging your existence
  • People who don't stack their shopping basket neatly at the supermarket
  • People who put their own basket on top of said improperly stacked basket, making it impossible to restack it without taking all the baskets out and starting all over again
  • Smokers who think their butts are not filthy trash and just flick them any fucking where
  • Cycling

Re: You know what really grinds my gears?

People who putter along at like 20 mph until they see a yellow light and then floor it, so you're stuck at the red.

People who pull out in front of you and make you hit your brakes when there are no cars behind you for like 3 blocks.

The fact librarians never tell little kids to shut up any more.

People who are rude to servers/waitstaff over incredibly minor inconveniences that could be solved with a polite inquiry

That it's 2013, and yet some people are still mystified as to how ATM/credit card swipers work at checkout counters.

Ugh!

I guess if you have all hardwood floors or ceramic tile, it's different, but outdoor shoes on carpet? :vomit:
You'll be surprised. In here it is our culture to not wear shoes in a house so when we are watching a US show and they are wearing shoes inside their house, everyone was so shocked but I think I am the only one who knows.

Re: You know what really grinds my gears?

In the US, we have a particularly noxious class of cyclists who demand all sorts of special treatment and "bike awareness" but totally disregard any rules of the road, e.g. running stop signs, alternating between using bike lanes, roadways and pedestrian walkways with flagrant disregard for their safety or that of others, etc.

Yeah, they grind my gears.

Do you hate the sport or watching cycling?

That sort of plays into my next one...

*- Inconsiderate smokers. You're the reason why so many people hate us & give us all a bad name.

*- People who cancel things 5 minutes before we're due to leave. Give me some friggin' notice so I don't spend forever getting ready, or have enough time to arrange something else!

*- Just ex-boyfriends generally.

*- Islamophobia. Half these people who go on EDL marches are the same people who cheer when Demba Ba scores for Chelsea or when Mo Farah won his gold medal.

*- Heading off on a journey & realising your iPod has 5% battery left.

*- Spitting out chewing gum on the ground. I don't wanna find that shit stuck to the bottom of my shoes.

*- Fat people who spend their lives complaining about being fat, but can't be arsed to do anything about it. If I ate what you ate & did no exercise, I'd be morbidly obese too!!!

*- People who update their twitter/facebook everytime they go to the gym, just to make sure you know about it. Seriously mate, nobody cares.

*- Bouncers. Thugs on a power trip who weren't brave/fit enough to join the army or clever enough to join the police force. I've seen so many of my lad mates get started on without any provocation & they're allowed to get away with it. The scummiest of scumbags.

*- When you can't wash off a handstamp from the night before no matter how hard you try. It looks so tacky and just generally gross.

*- Clubs that stamp your hand going into them. What is the point?! Give me a wristband.

*- Donald Trump. I get addicted to the American Apprentice but Trumpy boy makes my skin crawl. And what is that on top of his head?

Well I certainly hate watching it, and other than a casual ride in the countryside on my old 3-speed I've never even contemplated taking it up. I live in a part of the Netherlands where people are obsessed with the the sport, so I also hate this:

Re: You know what really grinds my gears?

I wouldn't care if I never rode another bike again, and I probably won't. Just very uncomfortable for my ass and prostate and not enjoyable. TMI, I know

Re: You know what really grinds my gears?

Well I don't ride my bike on roads cause I'm a mountain bike rider. Instead of irritating drivers, joggers found us annoying too.
