Door to door religious solicitors.
STOP DISTURBING MY PEACE!!

Do I have to replace the hummingbird feeder with an A 5 foot upside-down cross for you to get the message?!
Stop coming to my door at all hours of the day!
And stop sending that old woman with one foot in the grave, after I've already emphatically stated that I'm not religious and not interested!
Jeez!!

Re: You know what really grinds my gears?

I know this is really nasty ! But I think everyone in here has had this happen at least once in their lives...

When you're taking a dump and you just can't squeeze out the last bit. You're about 90% done and it breaks off right towards the end and you have to scoop out the rest with a half a roll of freaking toilet paper

Sorry, but that really grinds my gears...literally

That's pretty brazen.
I'd never heard of that happening before.
Hopefully they're not stalking you.
That would be some frightening horror film shit right der.

People who have pets and treat them like shit. Why have them, then? Oh, you need something to use your abusive personality on.

Re: You know what really grinds my gears?

People who stay over and leave your place in a mess. It wasn't like that when you got here, clean up!!!

People who do not put things back where they should be when theyve finished with it. You took it out of the cupboard, put it back in the cupboard - don't leave it on the floor!!

People who give no thought to disabled people in the street! I will explain. I've recently been unwell and have to use a walking stick because I can hardly walk. I'm walking along the street and you get people who are walking opposite you and will just stand there when they are opposite you. They won't be the first to move out the way, they expect you to walk around them. I'm the one with the disability, you are not. Nope, they just stand there and wait for you to walk around them When I was able to walk I used to be the first one to move out of the way if I saw someone with a stick or in a wheelchair. Perhaps it's just me and that is the norm.

Blamers. Those who do not accept responsibility for their actions.

I feel your pain, and noticed over the years how this has gotten even worse than what you've described. I've witnessed people with disabilities harassed and abused while taking public transportation...BY THE DRIVERS AND CIVIC WORKERS!!
It's gotten real ugly out here, and it's a shame.

Re: You know what really grinds my gears?

When airlines give really random stopovers. For example, on my return from Seoul, i will be stopping over in Vladivostok, one of the most polluted and boring cities in Russia, where i will stay for 26 hours. This just doesn't seem possible
