Obsessive sniffing. I have to control myself not to throw a box of tissues at the person. My husband and son both sniff more than I can handle. And I'm not talking about when they have a cold, it's all the time.

Yes, I hate this. They even did it in the first episode of The Walking Dead. There are zombies out there! Seriously, if that's not a reason to close the door then I don't know what is. It completely shattered the realism of the show for me. No one that stupid could have survived a zombie apocalypse.

Slurping and loud chewing. I’m getting twitchy just thinking about it.

They talk regular volume in the back during the one big class I have, but most of my class are puny, I guess they know there's no way anyone can pretend not to hear them then. My favourite prof is the one who threatens to kick out anyone who has conversation whispers.

I just really hate the squeaks and hisses people make when whispering.

I find that really hard. My boss thanks me for everything and I would feel totally awkward saying "you're welcome" for doing what I never thought twice about doing. Like some times she'll thank me for telling her that I won't be coming in on some day. Or for checking in some books. "No problem" is easiest, also followed up with "you do realize that you guys pay me, right?"



I say no problem also at work especially when a customer says thank you. It's my job to help you find that sweater or ring you up.

I can't stand people who go to the self-checkout line at the grocery store with tons of items and no clue how to self-check. (Or, they know how to use the system but they are SUPER slow at it.)

I know that everyone does this at some point, and that some people just aren't ready for change yet, BUT.... lately there seems to be an abundance of people in my life who come to me and complain about [love life, weight, baby daddy, job, etc.] and ask me "how can I change it? What would you do? Please help!" So I share what I can. I don't have experience with some of those things, so I try to be helpful and not pushy. They seem receptive, happy, whatever, and then the next day or two, it's like deja vu or groundhog day (the movie)... repeat, repeat, repeat.

If you don't want to change, that's cool, but please stop complaining to me and asking me for advice. I don't like talking to walls, and I like to try to stay positive.

But the talkers are way bigger crassholes. And it isn't fair to anyone else. It is also a peeve of mine. Even all this time out of school.

When people talk on their cellphones holding them like CB radio receivers, and then move it to their ear to listen after they talk... back and forth like this for the entire conversation... mouth to ear, mouth to ear... How can they hear the person on the other end when they are talking? They can't!

Oh, oh, and also on tv shows, they never ever use toothpaste when they brush their teeth. Who the hell only uses water when they brush their teeth?....maybe I should just stop watching tv as it seems to annoy the hell out of me..

When people use the push-to-talk (walkie talkie) feature on cell phones when they are out in public.

Bad drivers. I am really confused as to how some people that seem to have driver's licenses got them. They really don't seem to understand the basic rules of the road.

Now I get to feel super-awkward and explain to you, perfect stranger, how I am not actually smart at all! NOT EVERYONE WHO SKIPS GRADES OR FINISHES HIGH SCHOOL EARLY IS SMART. I just happened to have been cursed with reading and comprehension skills at an early age, and my underfunded rural public school didn't know what the fork to do with a kindergartener who devoured Stephen King novels, so they said hey, send her up a grade so she can be emotionally, physically, and inherently psychologically underdeveloped compared to the rest of her class and wind up a socially maladjusted weirdo for the rest of her life! DEAR POPULAR CULTURE (i.e. last night's episode of "House," where the girl who graduated high school at 15 had a bunch of PhDs and then headed to med school), PLEASE STOP PERPETUATING THIS MYTH.

I'm so glad my mom did not have me bumped up a grade or two like it was suggested, so sorry you had to go through that! Finally got a teacher who challenged me to read and write more than the rest of the class-it was too much of an effort for others.


I had the opposite problem -- I was way ahead of my classmates and bored out of my mind in school, and begged to skip ahead, and my parents were dead against it, thinking I'd end up a socially maladjusted weirdo. Well, guess what, I ended up a socially maladjusted weirdo anyway...and by high school, I had given up on school altogether, because I wasn't getting anything out of it and nobody cared enough to challenge me intellectually. There was one point at which the school I was at ALMOST convinced my parents to let me accelerate in a few subjects, at the beginning of middle school, but then I had to move schools again, and the new school was a whole year behind the school I'd been at before, so it was a great big waste. So now not only am I a socially maladjusted weirdo, but there are HUGE holes in my education because somewhere around 8th and 9th grade, my brain just shut off.

Stephen Colbert did a thing on this and it was really witty. You should check it out if you haven't seen it already. http://www.colbertnation.com/the-colber ... m-erection

My husband does this and it drives me batty. I suppose he thinks some magical kitchen fairy (ME) comes along and does the rest. And why wouldn't he? TV has been subconsciously instilling this idea in him since he was a child.

I hate when sitcom people take dainty little bites. I realize this is because they have lines that need to be comprehended by the audience but it bugs the shiitake out of me anyway. Take a real forking bite.

Hehe, its the only way I make it through my daily commute. I play bumper cars in my head too. The mental image of running people off the road is soothing.


graciakai, you're super funny and sooooooooooo freakin' accurate. I agree that you must retreat from our minds, woman.

When your best friend from college is extremely talented and has made a career for himself doing what he loves and is very gifted at (and he's driven and he's worked very hard), and everyone loves him, and he meets famous people and he lives a creative, fulfilling life, and you almost can't even stand to hear from him now because, just by living his life and being himself, he makes you feel about 6 inches tall in comparison.

Anyone else hate that?

Yes, this exact thing is true for me as well. Oh but add on he is also the most ridiculously good looking man you've ever seen! What is with these people!
