Default Minor Annoyances

Does anybody have something....that ONE THING that just pisses you off for no good reason?

Not talking about grammar or somebody being an ass (those are more than minor), but something tiny and insignificant that just really really irritates the crap out of you?



For example, I hate certain pronunciations of some words. Like if somebody pronounces "sure" as "shewer" or something like that.

Also, if there's music playing in a car, it has to be either off or loud enough for everybody to properly hear it. Whisper-volume music gives me a headache for some reason.

Finally, people who overpronounce letters that others leave out. For example, most of us don't pronounce hard consonant sounds at the end of words, right? So if it were spelled out in a script it would be more like:

"I wan' to go dow' to the s'ore to buy some mo'els" instead of "I wanTUH to go dowNUH to the sTUHore to buy some moDEls."

I just hate it when people pronounce letter sounds like that, if you get what I mean

Might not know what I'm talking about, but I get weirdly annoyed when people make that clicking noise while speaking, normally when hesitating during a made-on-the-spot speech. That stupid noise that sounds sort of like opening a mouth quickly after sucking all the air out, you might know it.

When evil seeks to overcome good
And firepower ovecomes the spoken word
Then death shall rain from the sky on wings of blood
And retribution will be swift

Adults that don't eat with their fecking mouth shut.

Seriously, I don't want to hear every mouthful of your meal being slopped around your teeth. My baby grand-neice has better manners than that.....

People who over emphasise how they say something in a foreign language, it seems to happen a lot with Italian food, people who otherwise speak in a completely normal accent until they say something Italian.

"Today I am cooking a RRRagu, I will be serving the RRRagu with some lovely Ta'lia'teyay and for desert will be a beautiful Tirrrrrah meesu"

Just don't fucking do it!

Also people from the south who insist on saying Newcastle is a semi geordie accent, saying Nucassle instead of Newcastle, fair enough if its where you come from then that's how you say it in your own accent, if you don't come from there don't fucking say it like you do!

Noisy eaters, people who make retarded slurpy noises when they sleep, and slow walkers.

Oh, and this is also excepting modern youth culture and the whole concept of "swag" etc. I'd happily execute certain individuals for such crimes, so I'll keep it simple to what I mentioned above.

Fucking arseholes!



Actually, what really gets up my fucking pipe. Women with prams.
Ok, I get it, you need to take baba out with you. No problem, good for you for being able to socialise, shop, pay bills etc all whilst looking after the nipper.
Good on you, I couldn't manage that.

However, when I am walking along with an infinate radial plain of SWEET FUCK ALL around me, why do you need to drive the pram at me?
