You know, those minor things that really ruin your day.


For me, it's people who cross the road when they're literally 10 feet away from a crossing but just can't be bothered walking the extra distance and just walk into the road when it's unsafe.


Also drivers who just stop in the yellow hatching and block roads because they're ignorant.

 I don't consider it trivial, but, apparently, the perpetrators do, so: People who don't use turn signals when changing lanes. I hate these turds, there's no excuse for not doing something that requires so little effort that can save so many lives. American drivers are some of the worst in the world.



Umm...I guess people who chew loudly and make what I can only describe as "dad" noises:

1: When you are in a hurry to get somewhere, but some fat guy is waddling in front of you, and you have no room to get around him.

2: When maintenance is cleaning the restroom DURING YOUR BREAK TIME.

3: Having to work with a 20-year-old. You so often end up needing to be a Dad to get him to do much of anything, but he just stands there, and throws a tantrum.

Things that really annoy me tend to be those I see as manifestations of larger problems. Take Amazon for instance, fantastic website from a consumer standpoint - and kinda not a great company to work for. And it's taking over a lot of stuff - online shopping becomes almost synonymous with the darned website. And... that's kinda... not a great comment on humanity. That momentary convenience and a very small margin in cost overcomes having a relatively diverse economy where employees at least have the chance to be treated right.


Or take fraud - another of my favourite things. Sure you can knock off a fraudster here and there without much trouble, but it doesn't make much difference in the overall scheme of things - the incentives are set up that way. That one particular person does it...


Or politics - oh man, politics. Jeeze. Politics in the UK is kinda fucked. I remember how horrified I was when the liberal democrats had a shot at power and wasted it not getting proportional representation in. That's a mistake we'll be paying for over centuries. If they'd done nothing else, if that had been all they'd achieved with their votes, that would have been worth doing.


Or even people. Now don't get me wrong, a lot of people are okay. But there's this thing and it's a manifestation of the central problem that I see with British politics in that a lot of people can tell you with exacting passion what they're against but telling you what they're for? There are a great many people who don't seem to be for anything - and I find that very worrying. It's very exploitable. Because if you're not for something, and you believe you are based solely on your actions against examples of its opposite, then it makes your central virtue your capacity to hate. Anyone who can hate more efficiently then gets to define group membership and direction as a fairly trivial action.


But at this point in my life, a lot of my annoyances are more tired things than angry things. Like, you know - I can do what I can do. Sometimes that will run into opposition with some of the things that annoy me and maybe it will displace them with something better, maybe you'll have to have a fight over it, but that's not the point. Even on a fairly trivial level, life's too long to go around pissed off all the time and too short to fit in all the things that are worth loving instead.

Pretty much everything annoys me in some way or another.

I love how @Nemmerle  's answer is basically "Everything" but more eloquent than the rest of us.


Politics is a good shout, though sometimes I do wonder if one of the proletariat got involved (ie, the working class) if things would be different.


I'm currently listening to Blair's Autobiography to put me to sleep - he does say some odd things which make you think that his heart was in the right place. I'm unsure.

  • People that say literally when they actually mean figuratively. I literally want to murder them.
  • When bar staff ask you if it's OK to serve a beer in an off-branded pint glass. It bothers me because I know for a fact that they only ask this question because some idiots will actually kick up a fuss if their San Miguel is served in a Carlsberg glass.
  • Loyalty cards in shops. No, I don't have one. No, I don't fucking want to have one. How about you just lower all of your prices for everybody instead of dicking around with loyalty card schemes?
  • Cars that stop to let me cross the road when there are no other cars around. It takes more time for me to figure out if you're actually stopping to let me cross, than it would have if you'd just carried on past me at full speed and I crossed afterwards. And I have to do that stupid half-run thing that everybody does when someone stops to let them across. I fucking hate you and I'm going to murder your family.
  • American money. Seriously, it's just dull Monopoly money. You're the current superpower! Put more fucking effort in, you're embarrassing yourselves!
  • The trivial matter of the French still existing. It means that Britain has failed somewhere down the line.
  • Buying a train ticket only for no-one to check that I have one at any stage of my journey. You can guarantee that if I'm in a rush and leap onto the train at the last minute without a ticket, though, some fucker will decide to finally do his job and check.
  • People who buy those 'plastic slices' that purportedly pass for cheese. You're literally ruining whatever dish you decide to contaminate with those things. Learn to food better.
  • Pubs that allow people to bring their children inside. Fuck. That. Pubs are holy places that should be a respite from humanity's attempt at a parasitic organism. Leave the kids outside, where they belong. Preferably chained up on the railings.
  • When people talk about their favourite sports team as if they played any part in their victories or failures. 'We' scored a goal, did 'we'? Funny, it looked to me like you were slouched in an armchair stuffing your fat head with Doritos. Professional athlete is absolutely the phrase I had in mind while I watched you fail to even achieve a good posture, you antediluvian cockwomble.
  • People who get tattoos in an effort to be 'different'. Guess what? You'd be more 'different' if you didn't have a tattoo of your dog's arse on your wrist, microbrain. 


Other than that, I'm really easy-going.
