I recently watched a video from The Amazing Atheist titled "#ThingsThatAnnoyMe" and the title is self-explanatory. I thought it would be interesting to see what you guys had to say, everything that annoys you. Anything you hate, dislike, disapprove, loath or even disagree with. Just write it down, I guess.
The reason I joined ThinkAtheist is because of Belle Rose and her discussion "Brag about yourself!" and I liked the purpose of the post and all that good stuff. This is, I guess, to anyone that just wants to release some steam and complain about anything or whatever, doesn't matter. So go apeshit and write down anything and everything you can think of that annoys you. Have fun.
Thank you to anybody who does post a comment.
Still relating to shopping...
People who will put everything they want to buy in their cart and then suddenly have to go and decide to leave their full cart in the middle of the aisle somewhere for some poor worker to sort it all out later.
And people who don't share the aisle.
And people who are so pushy about being first in line.
Or people who have a full cart and see someone behind them with one or two items and decide to still make them wait until it is their turn.
And people who have one or two items who feel like they should go ahead. It is more polite to let them go first but don't be pushy or rude about it. Just hope that the people in front of you will be nice enough.
People who slide the little pieces of paper with the price on them in those rails (I don't know if many stores still have that) so that all the prices are aligned with the wrong products.
I could go on with people who go shopping in places but I'll leave it for now.
The person ahead of you has an overloaded shopping cart in the self-scan line and is finally done scanning.
Then, out come the 35 coupons, out of which she needs help from the wandering self-scanner assistant for about 7 of them. Then, her first two cards are declined. Then she starts sorting through what she bought so that the wandering scanner assistant can remove items from the total until the balance on her card covers her purchase.
Hopefully for her, I won't have any objects in my cart that could potentially murder her. A knife, a drill, a pot, a sturdy keyboard, ...
I'm patient but there is only a certain amount of patience anybody can have.
By the way, that was very detailed. Either you had that happen to you and if so, then sorry for you. Or you know how to picture a realistic but still humorously overdone situation.
I've been known to get into the express line knowing I have "something like" a dozen items/Might be 10, might be 13 (which is a kind of dozen known as a baker's dozen).
Then, is three avocados one item or three when bought under a "Three for $2" offer? If I put six onions in a plastic bag, is that one item or six? and if I leave them loose, what is that?
I think this is done by certifiable sociopaths, sorry. When I go to the 'store', I normally know how much money I can spend, know what I want/need, check the dis-count bins, look for the free samples, and not look at 'every damn thing', just because it is brightly color, or moving! For me Walmart is not 'eye candy', but an emthy distraction like FOX news...
There was, for a while, a regular column on a news site, "things that make you go grrr...." and shopping carts left all over the parking lot (not just three feet away) was a prominent complaint.
Someone wrote in and explained why they, at least, did this. They were afraid that during the minute or so it would take to put the cart away, someone would kidnap their children (already belted into the car seats) out of the car.
And this is a bad thing truly....
I might as well get it over with...I hate people. :)
Hahaha I was waiting for that.
My list goes from most tolerable to least tolerable. Here it goes:
1. I don't like coconuts, licorice, having nuts in most pastries, and bitter foods.
2. I don't like people who take advantage of my kindness and act like I'm not kind to them.
3.I really don't like it when people use the restroom and don't wash their hands.
4. I hate getting pictures taken of me when it's not for a significant moment.
5. I highly dislike the behavior of excessive complaining, especially when that person isn't in a dire situation.
6. I don't like it when people don't help with work, especially when it requires physical labor.
7. I highly dislike proselytizing. I especially despise religious proselytizing.
8. I hate living in an environment where my ideas aren't able to be heard without bad backlash.
9. I don't like the fact that I haven't made a friend or have a boyfriend yet. :/
10. I hate being depressed, lonely, tired, restless, overthinking, not having a better sleep/exercise/eating schedule, being laughed at, low self-esteem.
11. I absolutely hate with a passion: murderers, rapists, racists, religious leaders, homophobes, creationists, extreme feminists, gender roles, all pseudoscience, thieves, doom saying, saying humans are psychic, trusting your intuition to be flawless, harming the helpless, rash decisions, bringing me unnecessary drama, spanking children, con artists, terrorists, wars, unnecessary arrests, abuse of authoritative power, ex-gay therapy sessions, conspiracy theorists, aggressive proselytizing, animal abuse, global warming deniers, religious apologists, theocracies, Sharia Law, faith over knowledge, fear of the unknown, all churches even atheist churches, and finally people who believe reality is created by our consciousness.
Some of these are somewhat understandable depending on the situation like thieves, rash decisions, animal abuse, and fear of the unknown. Animal abuse is understandable when it involves food but I'd rather it be quick and otherwise is unacceptable. Many thieves steal for survival, rash decisions can count for this as well. Fear of the unknown is a natural yet sometimes hindering fear. But the reason atheist churches are on the list is because I find them highly counterproductive. Calling it a church is one thing, but having it set up where atheists gather to follow a particular way of thinking is plain disturbing to me. Atheists and other non-religious people should have an environment where there is an exchange of different ideas of life that doesn't involve the supernatural.
This looks like an 'exhaustive list'....;p)
Politicians, ALL of them.
