You know what really grinds my gears?



I'm making this as a place for people to come and vent about stuff. If people are anywhere near as ranty as I am, then it should take off pretty well. I'll kick off...

*- People who leave their bags on chairs on public transport even though people are being forced to stand. Just what the fuck are you playing at?

*- Pushy door to door salesman. We already have double glazing, why would I want some more?

*- People who watch tennis for 2 weeks at Wimbledon & assume they know more about the sport than you.

*- People who don't pick up their dog poo. You should all be forced to bathe in a sea of acid.

*- Anybody who's ever described themselves as "zany", "wacky" or "a little bit out there". CRINGE.

*- Taking days to reply to a text message that I've sent.

*- Any tune that I use as an alarm after about a week. I've ruined some of my favourite songs by using them as an alarm clock.

I'm gonna end it there before I go too far into this rage. It feels better to let it out though, I promise.

Re: You know what really grinds my gears?

Parents letting their kids to stand on seats with their fucking shoes on .

People talking loud on any public transport. Oh, and people who apparently know each other but decide to sit separately BUT still talk to each other.

People fishing for compliments.

People texting me first and when I reply, nothing ever comes back.

People walking so slowly on the street. I mean they don't even know they are blocking the way. Once I saw a group of girl walking at a shopping mall HAND IN HAND with each other.

Oh, and my sister, who never really lifts a finger at home.

Re: You know what really grinds my gears?

I just wanted to post about people who fucking text and walk in crowded places. I can't count how many buses I've missed because I got stuck in a crowd of people going down the stairs with some stupid person blocking the way by taking one step every minute because they can't WAIT UNTIL THEY GET OUTSIDE TO FINISH THEIR TEXT. If someone pushed them down the flight of stairs they'd completely deserve it.

Re: You know what really grinds my gears?

- People that interrupts others when they're speaking.
- People that feel like they're so insecure they need to talk about their acomplishments at any given oportunity.
- Rude people, specially people who are rude even though you're helping them.

I can't think of nothing more.

If more people were like you I would be dead right now.

Re: You know what really grinds my gears?

^In addition to texting and walking slowly
-People who exit a building in a group, and then mill around the doorway so that no-one can get out
-People who walk slowly on a footpath, single-file so that no-one can get by
-The popularity of Two and a Half Men
-Gay men who treat feminine men like shit
-How angry people get about the "carbon tax" in Australia
-The season finale of Twin Peaks
-Group work assignments at uni
-Journalists who treat politics like horse race
-When I ruin songs by listening to them too much (similar to the alarm clock one)

This is a very therapeutic thread

OMG! This so much! I never understand the need / purpose of having so many assignments at college. I mean the only thing I learnt is that some of my classmates are assholes / bitches.

Re: You know what really grinds my gears?

Yeah, I'm already ready for Round 2...

*- Parents who take their kids to public places & don't even try to keep them under control. I don't want smelly 7 year olds under my table when I'm trying to eat, thanks.

*- Servers at restaurants/pubs/shops leaving you waiting at the counter while they finish their conversation with each other. Do your friggin' job.

*- People who don't hold a door open for you. Come on, that's pretty basic manners.

*- Anybody who's ever pushed in a queue. I will hunt you down.

*- Buying something expensive & then finding it 50% cheaper in a sale 7 days later.

*- Everything to do with horse racing. Horses die on the track every year at the Grand National just so wankers can wear a suit & have a day out.

*- The fact that they've just changed the name of 'Sky Sports 2' to 'Sky Sports Ashes' for the summer. I hate cricket... hurry up US Open/Football season/Rugby Season/NFL.

*- Food which looks absolutely nothing like it does on the pictures or how it's advertised. Volcano Taco at Taco Bell, I'm looking at you. Still the biggest let down of my life...

This is going to be my daily release I think.

This so much!! I've ruined so many songs with this, but not just when it's an alarm clock tone but when it's just as a ring tone. Urghh so annoying. That iPhone Marimba tone still boils my blood every time I hear it as it used to be my alarm clock tone.

Re: You know what really grinds my gears?

People who don't respond to an email or text for lengthy periods of time (or at all).

People who text and drive.

Neighbors who blast music out of cars while driving through neighborhoods, or blast music outside. I don't want to hear it.

People who live in apartments who are excessively loud with music / blaring TV / shouting.

I know I'll get blasted for this...but I'm weird about people who wear their outdoor shoes in the house! Think about all the crap you step on outside every day, then you walk on your carpet?! I don't get it. I've been in countless houses where I ask, "Do you want me to take my shoes off?" and they say "Oh, no, leave them on" and I look and they have theirs on and their carpets are filthy/gray/black in the areas where they walk! Ugh!

I guess if you have all hardwood floors or ceramic tile, it's different, but outdoor shoes on carpet? :vomit:

Re: You know what really grinds my gears?

-Noisy eaters.

-Shop assistants who follow you around.

-People who talk at the cinema.

-Clapping in the cinema. (Why?)

-When people miss the trash can and then don't pick up their trash.

-People who get on the bed without taking their shoes off/ who touch the sofa with the sole of their shoes.

-People who never say thanks. Even if it's a little thing, it's just a fucking word.

-People touching other people's phone/tablet/keyboard with dirty/oily/sweaty hands. Or people who use something of these without asking.

-When someone saves their progress on MY games.

-When someone tickles/tries to tickle me. There is no reason for that, ever.

-When people create result threads in GM and they don't put the tournament and the round in the title.

Those fucking Bing links buried all over the place that send you to their stupid search results when you are trying to go somewhere else. Give it up, bing. You suck and Google is 100,000x better.
