Post 5 Things that annoy me. (A bit)

People who stir the bottom out of the cup, stirring tea or coffee for a flat out 5 mins is not necessary, if you do the right thing and put the milk in last.
When the water that comes out of the cold tap isn't very cold - I feel I'm being lied to by the "cold" symbol.
People who don't indicate on roundabouts - they should be banned from driving for 400 years.
Cyclists using the road when there is a cycle path which cost £1m an inch to make provided.
Gloss paint - this stuff needs to be banned from the face of the earth.

Your turn :)

1. People that own expensive guitars that they can't/don't play. They should give them to me, the bastards
2. When people respond to a suggestion with "could do".... I know you could but are you going to?
3. Decaf tea. Why does it exist and why do people buy it?
4. Richard Hammond
5. People who think Dynamo actually has special powers

-People that don't acknowledge a sneeze (with a bless you, or a gesundheit, etc...)
-Water on what should be dry food (like rice or a salad)
-People that drive on the wrong lane and then try to get in the right lane when a car apporaches them (you are not smart, you are an asshole!)
-Sudokus that require you to guess instead of being able to get to the conclusion by logic (It might be that I'm just not good at them)
-Math books that don't have well written complete step by step solutions to their problems (charge me extra, I dont care just dont do the douchebagery of giving a really large statisticall inference problem that would take integral and derivative calculus, a fair amuont of algebra, like 3 variable changes, Eigenvalues, and a couple of trigonometric substitutions to solve and the book only goes answer: b= .8745)

Yes but that SHOULD be wet (I acually love this soup), Im talking about when rice SHOULD be dry (as a side dish) and it all soggy or wet and repugnant not because of the recepie but because it wasn't cooked long enough (I acually LOVE truffle rissoto)

1. People who walk slowly in public. Walk faster, I potentially have places to be. Maybe.

2. Punk ass Decepticon.

3. The bastard students who live opposite me, who seemingly haven't had a good weekend unless the police have been called out to shut them up.

4. Peas.

5. People who don't enter their details when calling up customer service. It takes me longer to ask you and find them than it takes for you to enter them yourself. It's my time you're wasting.

1 - people who think the world is theirs and just for taking

2 - to take a punishing by having to hear the church-mass every sunday through the walls of the house, 'cos my christian hearing-aged neighbour insists on it against any social regards

3 - to say childrens noisiness above nn/DB A would be no noice. 11 years I had to live next to a fullday-kindergarden and it is a hell to hear the sqeaking 'death-screamings' anytime.

4 - to be asked: 'Do you have a payback-card?' - Oh how I wished, I could pay them back.

5 - ?? still thinking ;-)

Sauce for that first claim?
"Gesundheit" is merely the German equivalent of "To your health". It's exactly the same thing. To which you normally reply "thank you". How is that a curse?

@Inferno

The 'Sause' of the claim is dead and I wouldn't know where to search for historical origins of sayings / expressions.

I had no doubt to disbelieve when I learned that I was mistaken to think that 'Gesundheit' would mean a friendly wish towards the other. It originates from a time where it was a serious issue to catch up a cold (or maybe flu or worse). So the spontanous reaction was a defence against it by invoking health for oneself.

And even today, implying that calling out the single word 'health' would mean 'I wish good health would be with you', the habit itself is still evocative.

Nonetheless it would be interesting to know when it arose and what the circumstances were.

Post Re: 5 Things that annoy me. (A bit)

Okay, another 5:

1. The fact that facebook allows people to know when I've seen their message.... Talk about enabling stalkers and removing my right to ignore people and pretend I didn't see their message....
2. People that make the assumption, because you're too polite to say "no, fuck off" that you reaction must therefore be "wonderful I'd love it if you did that really fucking annoying thing that I don't want you to do"
3. People that post links to petitions along with sentences like "something has to be done about this!" as though posting a link to a petition really constitutes doing something.
4. Authors that patronize the reader. I had to stop reading Supersense by Bruce Hood recently cause he was talking to me like I was a knob.
5. People that can't play their guitar in time, but insist on playing it the loudest it can possibly go. I had someone ruin several songs I was playing in this way at a jam night the other day...

Another 5

1.- Bad spaguetti sauce (seriously, how hard ist ti to boil a few tomatoes, remove the skin and seeds and let it seemer with olive oil until they break down with oregano, garlic, a dash of sugar to cut the tomatoe's acidity and parsley adding salt and pepper to taste?)

2.- IDEs that don't allow you to change the pregenerated code (I'm your god you stupid machine, bow to my will NOW!)

3.- Exams that are light years beyond what was viewed as excercies in class or in homework (the point is to learn, we're not in th mother fuckin hunger games!)

4.- The "Mexicaner" turn. This is: when a left turn is prohibited one should do an "english" turn that is going around the block in the first posible right so that one comes to the desired street behind the intersection; the "Mexicaner" turn means invading the white stripes and kindof sort, of leaning your car in a way that only a subhuman jackass would asume you are no longer going the "wrong way" and waiting for the green light to then invade another lane while correcting course to proced through the intersection. This is of course not leagal but our laughably excuse for police allows it as it would be too much of a hassel to stop everybody breaking the law.

5.- The last 2 books of the Dune saga (Dune 7) this one actually sends e in a murderous rampage that tends to end several states away from where the book was originaly mentioned as sucking less than donkey balls.

Speaking as a drummer (woah there Prole) it actually annoys me when guitarists play their instruments in time, as I'm usually way out and therefore look daft.

But anyway, my five;

1 - The poster campaign which insists people should "keep calm and carry on", or shop, or eat jam, or punch a horse, or fuck an umbrella. I DON'T NEED TO KEEP CALM WHEN I'M FUCKING MY UMBRELLA! Bloody spoils the mood.

2 - People who say "that was random" after an incredibly tedious event.

*light flickers*

"Well that was random"

"NO IT TWATTING WASN'T" *lobs brick at head*.

3 - Tomatoes. As a sauce, fine, but as a whole, no. Nothing needs that many textures, you're just showing off.

4 - March. March pissed me right off this year, it needs to try harder.

5 - Mugs which say "You don't have to be crazy to work here, but it helps". The owners of these mugs are cunts by definition. In fact, a good way of spotting the cock womble in your office is to see which one picks up the twatty, slogan mug.

1) I really hate people who don't even try to spell properly. There are such things as spell-checkers. Use them.

2) Book series with crappy endings. I was supremely pissed at Eragon four. That is not how it should have ended, aka. predictable. No twists and turns? FFS, why did I get my hopes up?

3) Unnecessary words, particularly insults. Cunt is right on the top. It has such a sharp, bad ring to it. Calling someone a cunt makes you one. Calling a vagina a cunt makes the vagina seem more offensive. A pussy is sweet. So next time: Call someone a pussy, not a cunt.

4) Petitions. I have never heard of a petition changing anything, especially the ones on the net. If you want something done, fucking do something about it. Don't bitch and moan.

5) People who bitch about things that annoy them. Siriusly, your a fucking cunt fi you do that. I'ma get a petition signed to hvae these people removed from the net.
