Now, who is more immature? Them for wearing Heeleys in school hallways, or you for trying to kick the shoes from beneath them, like a bully?

we never actually got one down though ::) And seriously teachers had asked the kids to stop wearing them because they were a hazard. Personally I think it would have taught/shown them it was a hazard. Yeah it was a little immature to try and do that, but it would have made them stop I guarantee( and are your comments towards several of the younger members sometimes no more mature than that.) But its over with no more heelies.
Stupid post on my account, move on to the next annoyance.

Thought I would resurrect this thread as it was one of my favorites for venting...

Here are a few random things that really annoyed me this week / today!

Paper coffee cups that slowly leak... I am looking at an ever expanding puddle of delicious Tim's that will not ever reach my lips...  :(

People who ask for your help or have a question but will not let you finish before they starting rebutting your explanation, or argue with your answer. 

People who feel that because they pay the company you work for a monthly fee they can yell and scream at your as much as they want.

People who think by saying "This is unacceptable" that I will suddenly change my mind.

When you accidently bump into someone at the grocery store or whatever and apologize and they don't bother to acknowledge you said anything.

People who ask me at work if I speak French, to which I reply "Oui, un peu" which means "Yes, a little" and they then start talking to me in rapid fire, Quebecois, slang and I don't understand 75% of WTF they are saying.

That's it for now... Thanks I feel a little better.

Go with your own.

Scott

I'm annoyed by negative people who do nothing but whine and complain.   ;)

It bugs the hell out of me when someone's talking to you and they drop names mid-conversation without introducing the characters.

The only thing in this world that really, really, really, REALLY pisses me off are those Honda commercials with the Mr. Oppurtunity cartoon in them. I hate him. I can't stand him, actually.  >:( >:( >:( >:(

Wow, been a while since this old classic was bumped back up...  I was going to start a special "Holiday Edition" of this thread, but ultimately decided to just confine my whining to the usual place.  So here goes:

Stuff that annoys the **** out of me when it comes to the Holidays:

1.  The glitter EVERYWHERE - all over the house.  This seems like a minor nuisance, but when the Christmas cards are pouring in daily (many covered in glitter), and the ornaments/decorations are going up all over the house (some with stupid glitter on them), despite one's best efforts, this glitter crap winds up ALL OVER the freakin' place.  From the floors, to the couches, to the counter tops, to the toilet seats, to...  It seems like everywhere I look, the gleam from some fleck of glitter that's gone astray catches my damned eye.  Then, actually picking it up from wherever it is gets even worse.  Only way that works is the ol' lick the finger and stick it method.  Ugh.

2.  Getting Christmas/Holiday cards from friends that ONLY show their kids, and not them (the parents).  I'm sorry, but I see plenty of kids as it is.  When it comes to my long lost friends from elementary school, Jr. High, High School, and college, I want to see what THEY are looking like 10 - 30 years after the fact, not their kids (exclusively).  Unfortunately, it seems like 75% of the cards we get only show people's kids, as if their parents didn't even exist.  Lame!  Sorry for all of the folks in here that this issue probably applies to as well...  :-X

3.  Having to keep the house spotless, and all of the latest SW acquisitions tucked away throughout the entire month of December, due to the constant barrage of cocktail/Holiday parties that the Mrs. likes to host.  Week after week...  "Clean your **** up!  20 people are going to be here in a couple of hours!"  ::)  Fortunately, I'm squeeky clean as it is, but hiding all of the newest stash is becoming an increasingly difficult challenge by the month.  Oy.

4.  Well, everyone hates the crowds, right?  I guess that's a no-brainer.

So, any Holiday complaints from the rest of you...?

People who complain about getting Christmas cards with only kids on them.

Common sense isn't so common
