Bluetooth headsets!! When someone is walking towards you, looking at you, and saying "hello, how are you?" but they aren't actually speaking to you. And you feel stupid because they look at you like you're a dumbass, but really they're the idiot.

People from other places who tell me I could afford to stay at home with my child. I get that all the time here on COM. It just irritates the crap out of me. No one, I repeat, no one who lives in my city would ever suggest that as a realistic possibility. It seems that people are too freaking dense to understand the variability in the cost of living.

Organized religion. Can't stand it. For so many reasons, but constantly hearing about it as a topic just peeves me. A lot! Especially when people tell me that I need it. Argh.

People who are rude to service people. I see it all the time in restaurants & shops. I just want to tell them to get over themselves. You are not superior to your cashier or your waiter. They are simply doing a job just like you do at your work. They just happen to have the misfortune of serving you (I mean the general population "you", not any of you).

ok, so where i work, when i'm up at the customer service desk if it's not busy i have to stand out front and greet people as they walk in, like a walmart greeter. so, when i say hi!! good morning, and people look at me and then keep on walking irritates the hell out of me. i'll even continue the coversation with myself, since they were so rude not to. i'm sure i look like a complete loon sometimes:

"good, morning! how are you? oh that good, huh asshole. thanks, i'm doing just great! "

ah the things working in retail for 14 years does to you....

Also I hate the " I shouldn't be alive show" when the people are just dumb. Such as I went hiking just before and dark didn't take anything with me or tell anyone where I was going.
I also saw one where the guy went to see elephants in the wild. He said " No one ever told me elephants were mean."
Another good one was people who went on safari and got a canoe to go on the river. Only 2 of the 5 people in the canoe could swim. This river had hippos, snakes, crocs, and who know what else. So of course the boat tips and they spent the whole night on a sand bar in the river. Really people?

Wats da prob wit dat Tanya? U a snob!

Argh!!! There used to be quite a few moms on here that posted like that all the time. Then people started revolting and instead of responding to their posts, they just were criticized for their text talk. I haven't seen one for a while, although I don't frequent the Welcome! page that much which is where they all seemed to hang out.

It drives me insane when someone is going 10KM/hr BELOW the speed limit on a nice day with dry roads, and as soon as I have the chance to pass them, they speed up. And then they slow down again. And then speed up again. Pick a damn speed and stick with it, and if you're too damned decrepit to go the speed limit, then pull the eff over.

People who pluralize words with apostrophes, especially on business signs. Do they have any idea how unprofessional that looks?

Guys in their teens or twenties who wear their pants belted below their ass. You look like a f**king idiot.

And to get a clue that screaming profanity to your kids isnt gonna make them listen and the fact that there only 2 makes this so much sadder!
I also hate when i ask my husband for a sharp knife and he hands me the 3 dullest knives we own to cut meat..lol i love to cook so if anyone else loves cooking they would get why this is soo annoying!

"A couple months ago my dad sent me this photo he'd taken with his cell phone (and I'm still searching my computer for the file) which was of a sign for a shoe sale.

Shoses! Shoses! Shoses!"


HAH!! I'd totally buy some shoses. ;x



I agree that there should be a one knife per item rule, no double knifings. Gross.

I thought of two more. A little store close to my college apartment had painted on the side of their building "Open Tuse. through Sat." Another sign advertising fish bait said, "Worm for Sale" Seriously? One worm? And Carol, I'd love to see that picture! Too funny.

OMG. They repeated it. Seriously? How do people like that manage to start a business and run a store?

[deleted account]

I hate hate HATE when signs are grammatically incorrect. I admit that I don't speak or type perfectly. When talking to someone "important" I make an effort to not say words like "aint" (which my fourth grade class caught me saying all the time...lol) and when I'm writing something "official" I triple check to make sure everything is correct. So why can't people who post signs make sure they are correct before putting them up!!??

Two examples
1. Drive Careful...Y'all Come Back!
This is on a sign as you are leaving a little town just north of my town. I pass it every time I go to my parent's house and it drives me crazy! The "y'all come back" is ok, as it shows the "southern charm" of the little tourist town. But it should be "Drive Carefully" Get your adverbs and adjectives right!

2. Beach Hour's
We went camping by a lake this weekend. It should be "Beach Hours" as the hours are plural, not showing ownership.

**Disclaimer** I know I've made these mistakes on COM, but these are official signs! Proofread people!

[deleted account]

Kati I never denied having an accent! I embrace it! It just drives me bonkers though when people assume we're less educated or intelligent because of it. Or when actors and actresses can't get it right in the movies. I hate the fake southern accents. But in all honesty, it's YOU that talks funny!! :D

Somebody just reminded me of this one the other night...

People who absolutely REFUSE to get off their high horses and constantly make remarks on how much better they are at being a parent because you happened to struggle with an issue or two that they didn't have a problem with, yet your kids are much better behaved!

I love my sister's sister-in-law, but she also drives me NUTS!!!

So i just remember one more. I live in a tourist town in SC. A lot of people come down from up north and then complain about how people here talk funny, everyone is so stupid, or they have to wait to long to go out to eat. When I was a hostess this guy came up to me and said I live in Manhattan and have never had to wait this long to be seated and that place does twice the amount of people. And anyone who complains about waiting to eat! Get over it when you put your name on the list you know you have to wait. Don't ask me every 5 seconds if your table is ready when I just told you we have a two hour wait. Also if its been two hours and five mins. don't come and yell at me. Yell at the people who are still at their table 20 mins after they have finished. They can see you waiting and they know they can talk some other place but they won;t leave and I can't male them. Also form being a waitress. We make 2.15 an hour please tip 20% and more if I have to clean up after your kids. Please and thank you go a long way.

I had a couple more that I came up with today, but you ladies have beat me to one of them.

Spandex tights/leggings without a long top over the butt. No matter what the physique, they might of well have just gone naked. I can see every inch and hair on their ass, not attractive!

Car alarms!!!!!!!!! I was reminded of my hatred for those stupid things when someone had theirs go off just as my daughter was falling asleep. I was seriously considering going out to find that person and making them nurse her back to sleep. Hopefully a man!!! And does anyone ever pay attention when they go off? Not around here.

LOL Kati, the clothes thing and larger people... reminds me of a woman I saw in Walmart wearing a shirt that said "Bringing Sexy Back" ... she had to be at least 300 lbs and the shirt looked like it was going to snap off of her it was so stretched out. I just looked at my husband. I told him that I ought to get one of those for my (almost) 8 mo. pregnant self. I could stretch it over the belly!!!

i just read some more of these and i have to agree with laci about the movie thing. i recently watched the boy in the striped pajamas. it's about the holocaust, takes place in germany, but all of the actors (who are mostly american) have british accents. nothing like making a holocaust movie really unauthentic... is that a word? lol!

oooh, the late thing bothers me as well sarah. i usually very punctual, and it drives me batty when people are late.
i hate it when a waiter sits on the bench next to me when taking my order, makes me want to punch him.
when people crack their fingers, drives me nuts.
when people who are big wear clothes that don't flatter them; for example the 300 lb woman at my sons concert last night who was wearing a belly shirt, or maybe it was just a shirt that was too small for her-don't know, but it was gross!
i'll be back later-again, lol!!

Since I just just got back from grocery shopping...it really annoys me when people go in the out door (or vice versa) and then give you the dirty look because they have to go around you.



I hate the word "flavorful". I enjoy watching the Food Network and they use it all the time. My hubby uses it too and I had to threaten his life in order to get him to stop.

Oooh. Kevin Costner in Robin Hood. He lost the accent half way through filming. If you watch the movie, in some scenes he has a British accent and in others, Amercian. It is terrible!! Nicole Kidman does a great southern accent though. Which is impressive since she's an Aussie.

Another accents in movies thing: I hate when leonardo dicaprio attempts ANY accent, it nearly ruins movies. I wish they'd just cast a different actor. I hate cheesy southern accents too ;)

[deleted account]

On the accents in movies thing:

I hate fake southern accents in movies. Seriously, we do not sound like that. "The BIind Side" was actually pretty good with the accents but that's the only one I've seen in a while that got it right. Oh, and people from New Orleans do not have a southern accent. They sound more like New Yorkers. It drives me crazy when a movie that takes place in New Orleans has fake southern accents, for example, "Benjamin Button".

It's KY derby time, Its a pet peeve of mine that people get incredibly excited about potential celebrity sightings this weekend. They just want to drink and gamble like the rest of us, leave them alone. I dislike celebrity infatuation anyway, but its amplified every year on derby weekend.

And I hate people who delete their facebook every week and when I need to reach them they've changed their number, email, and don't have that facebook. then when I don't need to tell them anything, or its too late to bother, they come back. My cousin is notorious for this, and just did it AGAIN..

Also the fact that you get these text from people that haven't called you in weeks. Same with e-mail forwards! I hate it when they try to make a point like don't vote for someone, or everyone should have to take drug tests! really are e-mail forwards making up mind for you. Well I didn't know how I felt about the subject until i saw that e-mail!
