When I say "the little things" I mean absolutely anything. Even the most insignificant stuff. No need to be humble here.

For example, It always annoys me when people chew with their mouths open. Or just eat real loud in general. I don't even like it when I do it myself. I'm so self-conscious about the chewing noises I make while I'm eating, it's ridiculous.

chihuahuas, I hate those little dogs, their barking has to be one of the most annoying things I've ever heard.

Yeah, I can't stand insects either. They completely gross me out.

The only ones I can tolerate are boxelder bugs and ladybugs. And that's only because there's always an abundance around in the house that I've gotten used to them over the course of my life.

Chewing/eating loud as you said gives me the red mist. And shaving. It's boring and takes too much time.

Pomeranians are worse.

people who dont use coasters when they are right fucking there!

people who dont use their turning signals when driving.

@Trail_Mix: If I hear anyone making noises while eating or see them chewing shit with their mouth open I go berserk and I'm not exaggerating. My blood starts to boil and I become massively irritated. It doesn't matter if I know the person or not, if you're eating like a goat I'll make sure you know that one way or the other.

On-topic, I find myself getting really vexed on things people say that are irrational, illogical or are just wrong, regardless of whether they concern me or not and even if they're not talking to me at all. I quickly lose my temper and give them the "wtf are you talking about" expression. I admit that it can be ridiculous at times, it makes people around me quite surprised at times and they'd tell me "calm down its not worth it, take a chill pill and have some water" rofl.

These:

  • Men that go bald (I'm young but my grandfather and father are bald, so I'm struggling and going through some treatments to avoid baldness)
  • People that pretend they're drunk
  • Jocks (You know, the typical sportsmen stereotype that have nothing on their heads besides football)
  • Expensive clothes that I love
  • Talking in public to a huge audience

Couldn't remind myself of anything else but I'm pretty sure that that ain't even 1/4 of it...

Skinny sidewalk hogs: These jackasses somehow take up the entire sidewalk and don't move out of the way when I come by. I hate that. I'm not going to walk off the sidewalk because you can't be bothered to give me room.

Jaywalkers: I don't mind jaywalkers if they can gauge how fast traffic is going. The ones that can't and actually disrupt traffic are the worst. There should be a law, if I'm going the speed limit and someone unlawfully walks across the roadway and into traffic and I hit them, I shouldn't be liable for any damages, they are the ones that pay. And I've seen people jaywalk when the cross street is literally 50ft away... Lazy asses.

Moochers: I hate people bumming me for change. I don't carry around cash so I'm not lying when I tell them, sorry, I got nothing. But I've had people get testy with me, like I'm holding out of them and they're entitled to my money. Well fuck you! I've had one lady ask me for change so she can get another smoothy at the gas station. I gave her a nickel and told her not to spend it all in one place. She doesn't bug me anymore haha. I just get mean looks instead.

Blackhole yawners: These are the people who don't hold up their hand in front of their mouths as they yawn. It's obnoxious.

Surveyors: I've been taking public transportation using the bus and the train, for years. Around Summer, these lowlifes come out the woodwork and hassle people for signatures. The trick is to say no to their first question when the degenerate comes up to you, which is, "Are you registered to vote in the state of Oregon." Just say no, even if it's a lie. Because saying yes gives them the opportunity to spout about their bullshit agenda ad nauseum thinking that you care...

I give them ample time to move out of the way when I see them coming. If they don't move, neither do I. I have bumped many, many a fool. Often they make a whole lot of noise, but they have no spine to do anything about it. I don't go looking for anything, but one has to protect their own personal space. It's funny because they act like I'm the only one in the wrong.

-

People who can't stay in their f'n lane while driving.

People who flip the bird when they get a 'get moving' honk. I mean, if you're not paying attention, take it and move on.

C**t's using their phones in the theater. I know you're the most important person who ever lived, but give us peasants our hard earned entertainment time.

For me, it's people who work in mall kiosks who try to to stop you and sell whatever useless junk they got. I'm trying to find a working restroom, and some shithead is trying to sell me youth restoring lotion. I look like I got hit with a bag of hot nickels--worrying about having less wrinkles is the least of my problems.

Those magically entangled earphone wires...but that's just one of the little things that annoy me. XD

#20 Posted by BluRayHiDef (10839 posts) -

I wish that my anus would magically clean itself after defecating; wiping/ washing it is a nasty process. Also, I hate the fact that poop smells bad; I wish it smelled sweet or at least tolerable.

#21 Posted by Toxic-Seahorse (4153 posts) -

1. People who are constantly on their phone, especially when you're trying to have a conversation with them. There's nothing more annoying than that.

2. People who don't use the proper "their/they're/there, too/to, and your/you're" not sure why it pisses me off, it just does.

3. People who speed up in the left lane to pass everyone waiting at a light.

So basically people in general piss me off.

#22 Posted by -TheSecondSign- (9199 posts) -

Sleeping in. I wish I had a sort built in alarm clock that wouldn't let me do it.

I'd just wake up feeling like it was time to get moving every time.

My car annoyed the shit out of me tonight.

went to the local gas station to grab a Four Loko. all goes well. buy my stuff and get out. get back in my car, i cant fucking shift from park to reverse. tried turning off the car several times. no dice. tried googling but that wasnt really helpful. couldnt get to my shift lock release button. (it had never been used, so the cover had been caked down over the years.)

finally i got pissed and jammed the stick i use to release my keys(i have this small plastic stick i have to push up under my steering wheel in this small hole just so i can get my keys out of the ignition when im done driving) into the shift release thingy. the cover popped off. then stuck the stick into the new opening and was finally able to shift from park to reverse.

spent about a half hour in the gas station parking lot, looking like a dumbass.

now it seems, for the time being, everytime i need to shift from park to reverse/drive, i have to jam the stick in the shift lock release thingy.

That happened to me once. I got caught off guard when he asked me a question and said sure, so he ended up moisturizing my hands......That's the thing I hate about myself, I can't say no to these people. If I open the door to some sales person by accident, I know I'll be standing there for 10 minutes.

@Trail_Mix: well,I do have a small taste of insects too,such as fireflies and mosquitoes(I rub them each time I hit it),they don't seem to be a big threat to me

There are too many things which are just wrong with this world that it's just too hard to list them all. For example:

1. There are too many natural disasters.

2. People are being killed every day whether by war, natural disasters or by some kind of accidents.

3. I realized that people don't know how to treat each other very well.

Many people have some kind of superiority complex where they think they are superior to you just because they are better-looking, have more success with the ladies, have more money than you or have more talents and abilities than you have.

This kind of "I am superior to you" thinking that some people have towards you can lead to discrimination and abuse.

#30 Posted by coolkid93 (6717 posts) -

Idiotic drivers, idiotic people, guys who wear skinny jeans, guys who wear sagging skinny jeans, guys who sag their pants period, people that make excuses for their or someone else's wrong doing (certain ones anyways for example; someone kills or steal from people, "oh they come from a bad background"), fanboys, people who drink while driving, and people who text while driving. The list goes on and on.

#31 Posted by Fightingfan (38011 posts) -

I hate it when people separate alcohol from drugs.

Like..

"Don't do drugs or alcohol". Alcohol is a drug...

That's pretty much the definition of being superior

  • People who keep there mouth open while eating, if you're too dumb to figure out how to breath through your nose while eating by now I hope you suffocate.
  • Grammar nazis, seriassly nun carez
  • People who stare at you for no reason, what the hell is that about? I always stare right back, in the animal kingdom that is considered a challenge so I was told.
  • Guys/posers who walk around shirtless, attention seeking tossers. Anyway if it's legal for guys to go shirtless in public it should be the same for women damn it!
  • People who let their dogs live inside most of the day, the bigger it is the more reason it should be outside where beasts belong.
  • Door to door sales people and telephone sales people, both should be illegal.
  • Tupac's legion of brain dead fanboys who ignore facts like he was a convicted sex offender who ran his mouth once too often.
  • Pit bulls AKA land sharks (the worlds most banned dog that kill more pets and people per year than any other), they should all be culled off along with the lowlife owners they attract.
  • People who reply on forums giving there worthless opinions thinking everyone has to think the same as they do and no one is entitled to form there own opinion, get a life poindexter.

People who don't use blinkers. It takes almost no effort and makes driving safer for everyone involved. There's no reason not to use them.

It would be a lot easier if I just listed the things that DON"T annoy me.

I can't stand when people who are asking for money have an entitled attitude. I consider myself to be a compassionate person, but the minute a bum starts acting entitled to my money, my compassion towards them dries up completely.

#37 Edited by GreySeal9 (24859 posts) -

I think that callous people (there are a good amount of them on OT and the internet in general) are very obnoxious. These people seem to think that being callous is some kind of virtue or is somehow cool, but it totally isn't. It's an ugly character trait, which is why most people try to avoid being callous.

#38 Posted by johnd13 (8441 posts) -

People who walk very slowly in narrow sidewalks and obstruct my way or just stand in the middle talking to each other without giving a shit about others.

#39 Edited by Ring_of_fire (15664 posts) -

-People who can't maintain a constant speed on the highway.
-People who drive the speed limit in the left lane
-Slow people who speed up when you try to pass them.
-Bicyclists on the sidewalk.
-Bicyclists who don't stop at intersections
-People who honk to air their annoyances.
-People who make it difficult to merge onto the highway.

There is too much racism and sexism in the world and in many countries people are basically fighting and killing each other and that's not moral or ethical.

Ads.I hate them with great passion.Fuck you advertisers for harassing me and wasting my time with your shitty products.

Every time i see someone leaving flyers and other crap on my doorstep i take them and throw them back at his face.

I don't even watch tv because of ads.Fuck them.
