And I mean the nonreligious stuff. We talk about that all day long here. I'll start...
People who insist on turning against heavy traffic from the driving lane even though there is a middle lane set aside for turning.
People who can't take two additional seconds to push their shopping cart into the stacked carts, but leave it laying around two or three feet away from where it should properly be put.
Men who piss into toilets without putting the seat up and/or don't wipe the seat. (Were you raised in a barn or is it that you're afraid of the germs on the seat but are also afraid of washing your hands after touching something "dirty"?)
Otherwise intelligent people who can't pronounce "nuclear" without putting two u's in it.
People who are wrong on the internet....seriously, it just bugs me...what if someone did a quick google search and found something wrong and then used that to make some decision.
This one happened to me yesterday. Got an important call, inadvertently hit a key sending the call to voicemail. When I returned the call minutes later, I had to wait through about 2 minutes of menu choices, only to be told that her mailbox is full.
There are multiple gripes there: labyrinthine and huge menu systems and people who let their mailbox fill up. Oh, also, idiots who have never set up their voicemail and people who phone you and leave message and then aren't there to take the return call.
People that I have to deal with on a regular basis that are interested in the lives of celebrities and 'reality' TV shows, and the discussion of these things with anyone they come in contact with.
Even more, the fact that I can't politely express my dis-interest and general annoyance with these people. I guess this goes for more than just the sort of person described above.
I WISH SOMEONE ELSE WOULD DIE so that I don't have to hear any more about Whitney Houston. She was NOT all that important to me. What I remember about her is that at some point in her career Mariah Carey, who could hit notes only dogs could hear, came along and took a lot of her glory from her.
People who don't understand the usage of "whence" which means "from where." thus "We're investigating the object to determine from whence it came" is incorrect,. It should be "We're investigating the object to determine whence it came."
..or "you're" and "your".
People who say "drownding" instead of "drowning"? Where does that come from?
Pronouncing a "p" in something like "sumpthing"
There is no "p"!
People who insert a second "r" while pronouncing "sherbet" so much so that now "sherbert" has become an acceptable secondary spelling and pronunciation.
Of course, how many of us pronounce Wednesday the way it's spelled? Doesn't almost everyone say wenns-day. And who says feb-roo-ary. All I hear is feb-yoo-ary, a pronunciation that isn't even vaguely justified by the spelling.
Sway Austin pisses me off, hehehehehe
