    Only ten, huh? ;) Not necessarily in order, they're all about equal:

    1. Ignorance masquerading as knowledge.
    2. Bad drivers.
    3. Bad spelling/grammar.
    4. Closed-mindedness.
    5. Stereotypes, and the people who propagate them.
    6. People who jump to conclusions without any base on reality.
    7. People who say something horribly offensive, and then follow it with "no offense", like THAT helps.
    8. Trying to get the last bit of toothpaste, conditioner, hair gel, etc. out of the tube.
    9. People who just don't get that there's a time and place to run your mouth, and when and where that might be.
    10. Monday Morning Quarterbacks.
     
  3. Endi

    Endi Lt. Links

    1. Spyware
    2. My computer not working properly
    3. slow internet connection
    4. France
    5. Terrorists
    6. Bad drivers
    7. Snowbirds
    8. Our Sheriff here in Maricopa County (what an embarrasment)
    Embarrasment

    9. Heat during the Summer
    10. me sometimes:D:D

    laurieB MajorGeek

    i could only come up with five (and i thought about it for ages lol) so here they are).
    1) agressive drunks (cos i doesnt matter how skilled you are you cant 'talk them down')
    2) sand in my bikini bottoms.
    3) running outa milk for my morning coffee (read kids who put empty containers back).
    4) people 'playing' with my puter without asking (why do people think thats ok to do? if my hubby spent $600 on a new tool of some kind no-one would dream of playing with all the settings or testing it out to see how it works etc. if i spent $600 on a car it would be called autotheft!)
    5) phone sales and spam.

    if i think of more ill let you know.
     
  5. ArchAngel

    ArchAngel Sergeant

    1. Liberals, when they speak.
    2. People who don't drive the way I think they should.
    3. The terms "open-minded" and "close-minded" ; which actually falls under #1 because
    it seems that liberals are the ones who use them to describe people who don't think
    the way they do.
    4. People who use cell phones while driving or in public places.
    5. People who like to place the blame everywhere but where it belongs. Oops, it seems
    this one falls under #1 also.
    6. People who don't know the difference between constitutional republic(which this country
    is) and democracy. Most justices fall in that category. Along with those who still
    claim that Gore won.
    7. Mosquitoes. There must be a million in my yard.
    8. People who can't read the Constitution. For example: The words "separation" or
    "church" cannot be found any where in it.
    9. People who come up to the door at my store and want in after we're closed.
    10. People who go off on a tangent and don't know when to stop.:)
     
  6. laurieB

    laurieB MajorGeek

    oh yeh. i forgot.

    6) mosquitoes.
     
  7. dperino

    dperino Capt. Caveman

    1. Almost everything at one time or another

    2-10,, refer to number 1.
     
  8. G.T.

    G.T. R.I.P February 4, 2007. You will be missed.

    In no particular order

    1. Crabgrass/weeds/fire ants/yardwork.
    2. Sunny & dry all week, then rainy on the weekend when I need to be dealing with #1. Week after week.
    3. Dishonest self-serving civil servants and politicians, of whatever stripe and level. No party has a monopoly.
    4. Mistaking our republic for a democracy, and not understanding the difference.
    5. Attempting to spread democracy around the world. Democracy isn't what makes a country free or successful, and it's not what we have.
    6. Officials that can't pronounce nuclear. (It's nuke-lee-ur, not nuke-you-lur, dimbulbs. It's not that tough.)
    7. Lack of accountability at the top. No matter how badly they screw up, almost nobody gets fired, penalized, demoted, arrested. All signs of aristocracy, which we supposedly don't have either.
    8. Revolving door encarceration for life-long predators, that puts them back on the streets to prey on the innocent again. And again. And again....
    9. Educational policy that has crossed the line into criminal negligence and child neglect. Kids 100 years ago in one-room schoolhouses got a better education than most kids get today. Much more cheaply, too.
    10. General apathy.
     
  9. ArchAngel

    ArchAngel Sergeant

    Well, I pronounce it nuke-lee-ur.:p

    Oh, nevermind, I'm not an official. Or am I?:confused:
    An official what?
     
  10. CaNoFzOo

    You're an official Major Geek, for the last 50 posts or so. And what geek of any stipe would mis-pronounce nuclear? :D
     
  12. ArchAngel

    ArchAngel Sergeant

    Oops. I misread your post and got it backwards. I guess I had it right in the first place. But I never know if I am pronouncing words correctly, since I grew up in Tennessee.:)
     
  13. Kodo

    Kodo SNATCHSQUATCH

    People who don't admit to something and let someone else take the fall. That is, by far, my biggest pet peeve.
     
  14. CaNoFzOo

    CaNoFzOo Sergeant Major

    It annoys me when I'm talking to someone online and they put their away message on without saying "i'll be back" or something.


    *screams*



    I also hate it when people sign off without saying goodbye.
     
  15. Kodo

    Kodo SNATCHSQUATCH

    Phones

    People who have a problem with me having a life and signing off IM without saying good-bye :p

    5. people that dont put new toilet paper on the roll when it runs out :mad:
    6. car alarms
    7. when the supermarket only has one checkstand open with 40 people waiting in line.
    8. getting taunted by 10 year olds in counter-strike :D
    9. the question: "A/S/L?"
    10. gas prices
    i decided not to include anything about our current government because it would have taken up most of my top 10 :D
     
  19. lostkiwi

    lostkiwi MajorGeek

    In no particular order:
    1. Rude people

    particular time.
    7. Thieves
    8. Flies
    9. News anchors that don't know when to shut up so fill live coverage with babble.

    I've seriously thought about combining face recognition software with a motorized toilet seat to automatically adjust for the entire family. Would solve one of the most common irrelevant gripes in western civilization. I'm stumped over how to have it determine when the guys actually need the seat down though. Still working....

    I guess we could all go back to outhouses and sitting on rough wood planks with a hole in the center (I remember those), but would be tough to convince most folks to re-convert. Outhouses.... now THERE's something to gripe about. :D

  32. slider

  37. Clanger

    Clanger Private E-2

    Being a fellow brit I think that getting kicked is a right. Just wished we didn't go out on penalties tho'.

    World Cup 2006 - England will win !!!

    Jeez, you need to get more pet peeves, man. Toilet seats, or gum on your shoe, SOMETHING more important than sporting event outcomes. :rolleyes: :p
     
  40. SixShooter

    SixShooter Major Malfunction

    No particular order but I'll number it anyway:

    1.People who read over my shoulder uninvited.
    2.Clutter
    3.Whiners
    4.Getting bumped offline on a dialup connection.
    5.Critics...especially when they have no knowledge or experience of what they're criticizing.
    6.Telephone calls with no real purpose while you're working or concentrating...breaking rythm or train of though.
    7.Computer errors that cause you to lose what you've been working on.
    8.Slow drivers.
    9.Info-mercials
    10.Gossip

    Lots of other stuff that would go into a "soap box" category.
     
  41. dperino

    dperino Capt. Caveman

    Hey Sixgun!! You know,, last time you got bumped off dialup, I was finishing up cluttering your desk, when I happened to look over your shoulder, so I called you on the phone about a great informercial that had a guy whining about a slow driver,,but you didn't want to gossip,, so I hung up on you, just as your computer had a bluescreen. How are things??
     
  42. mmmSpam

    mmmSpam Private E-2

    People should have the sense to look before they sit down anywhere, especially the commode.
     
  43. SixShooter

    SixShooter Major Malfunction

    So you're the culprit Dale...:p

    Just the usual daily stuff...work, eat, sleep (not much) and paybills.
    The only thing new is my youngest boy having ear surgery this past Wed having a hole repaired in his right ear from having tubes removed after having them in for several years...one healed the other didn't. Would of been on line sooner to mention it but just replaced the modem lastnight after being down for few days.

    Ouch! Hope the surgery goes well. Should be fairly minor, but any surgery is a trauma for a kid.
     
  45. xtcdukes

    xtcdukes Private E-2

    1. Stupid People
    2. Bad song remakes
    3. Lousy drivers
    4. Annoying Musical ring tones
    5. Awful book to movie translations
    6. Burrito that's ice cold in the middle
    7. Political correctness
    8. Reality TV
    9. Kids
    10. Work
     
  46. SixShooter

    SixShooter Major Malfunction

    The surgery was quite sucessful. They made an incision behind his ear to get a graph and to have better access to the hole. His only gripe is not being allowed to go swimming for a couple of weeks.
     
  47. G.T.

    G.T. R.I.P February 4, 2007. You will be missed.

    Must be getting tired. Missed the fact that it was already history. Glad all's well.
     
  48. SixShooter

    SixShooter Major Malfunction

    Thank you for your concern. I've been feeling quite fatigued for the past 2 weeks, too much going on.
     
  49. Sgt. Tibbs

    Sgt. Tibbs Ultra Geek

    Around here, we not only put the seat down, but we close the lid. Which makes it fair for everyone because everyone has to do something before they may use the toilet. Also, cats have a habit of falling into open toilets, so it's better for everyone if the lid is closed. :)
     
  50. HUDIK

    HUDIK Sergeant



    Excellent advise re. the cats................:D

    What irritates me the most are

    1. through 10.

    People who think they are perfect, and have no sense of humor !!
