What Grinds Your Gears?

Posted on: February 22, 2008 5:29 pm
 
In the ilk of Peter Griffin's short-lived news segment of the same name, this thread is dedicated to everyone's pet peeves.  (What exactly is a pet peeve? Apparently they're all domesticated, you never hear about wild peeves pissing people off. I guess I'll have to look it up) Anyways, go ahead and let off some steam.  I've got plenty of thing that really grind my gears and I'm sure the rest of you do as well, so vent away.

What Grinds Your Gears?

Ambiguity in sayings....
grind my gears...bump and grind..
I'm not sure if I should be annoyed or frisky...
Both might work.

"Liberals are Socialists"
"the Obama kool-aid"
"Reagan was the best president since FDR, maybe better"
"Global Warming is a farce/ some sort of liberal conspiracy"
"Clinton was bad.  Bush is good/okay"

"Conservatives are stupid"
"Reagan was the worst president since ...well...ever."
"We should pass a law (regulate) about everything"
"(anything about the Iraq war)"
"Obama is different"

People not knowing the difference between their, there, they're.
People griping about how "x" thread is not about sports.
People.
People.
People.
Some middle aged white guy from Jersey pretending to be a hot chick on CBS.
How quick people are to "warn" other people. 
Drama.
"your stupid!"
The banned status of Random HeyZoos.
The quote system
The Private Message system.  If you respond to a private message, it should automatically be clicked as a private message--I have forgotten twice now!!! 

Arguments that exist solely for the purpose of people expressing their (mostly uninformed) opinions.
The page long paragraph.
The entirely vernacular (unreadable) paragraph.  
Trolls.

Receiving 1's for presenting an opposing view, irregardless of how reasonable and thought out the post is.

What Grinds Your Gears?

Hippies

Hippies really grind my gears.  But why?  How could you hate people who are all about peace and love and sharing and protecting the environment and blah blah blah.  I despise them because they, or the vast majority of them, are none of the above.  I've coined the term "Hippycrit" and that word encompasses almost all hippies.  What's the #1 reason a hippy becomes a hippy?  I'll give you a clue.  It's not to protest a war.  It's not to save the environment either.  These lazy scumbags need an excuse to do drugs and not shower.  They go to these secret gatherings were they speak to energy healers who heal thier souls and were the local law enforcement dress up like civilians and offer them poisoned meat.  Kinda sounds like somebodies high on something.  My friends brother is one of these aforemention Hippycrits.  The guy drives me crazy.  We were at a gas station one day and he tries to tell me that the lady in line behind us was giving out "bad vibes" and since he met with this energy healer at the last gathering he could feel "vibes" from people now.  I about laughed out loud.  I wonder how the "vibes" that I was giving off went unnoticed.  The vibe that was praying that I don't run into anyone I know until I drop this douche off. Or the vibe that was sceaming at him to shower or at least put on some deodorant. Apparently I must be good a concealing my vibes.  I let him crash in my basement for a night (bad judgement on my part) and it turned into two weeks.  Evertime I'd go down there the guy was sleeping and he'd always shy away from my questions.  In fact once I started talking to him about when he was going to leave and he fakes falling asleep.  Incredible.  Being my buddy's bro I tolerated it until his dog pissed all over one of my chairs.  I told him I needed some cash to replace it and he tells me he doesn't have any and that he'll get some tomorrow after he gets back from the temp agency.  Haven't seen him since.  Hey, I'll take a cheap piss-soaked chair any day, I'm just glad he's gone.
