Very angry

The only stupid people in this world are those who refuse to learn.

So my pet peeve, is dealing with stupid people.

I hate people that refuse to learn something new..

Just had a software rollout at a clients site, and no matter how many times i try and get them to follow a process, they refuse to do it, and basically say they can't do it, but refuse to let me help them do it, they just want me to do it all for them.

Females who are too snobby for their own level of hotness.
Hot chicks tend to be snobby, thats fine, but if you're not hot enough to be that snobby, you're not going to get anywhere.

That, and Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Men

Never mind that I was asking the questions, and standing in front of them. They'd look over my shoulder and talk to the freaking friend/boyfriend, and even after the male in question told them that they were just along to help it continued. BaM was with me when I was looking for the last place, and he couldn't believe how tactless they were.

When BaM and I bought this latest house it was the first time I'd bought jointly with someone else, and we encountered a few agents who didn't do this, so either Kapiti agents are less archaic in their value systems or things have changed in general.
I used to always come across agents that would want to show me the kitchen. I'd be like "Why? I don't cook." That tended to shut them up.
Am dragging Sid down in October to look at some houses and see some people, so would be lovely to catch up with you guys.

As an aside, was just reading that original thread and found these classics from Cookie. Wow, she was something else, that girl....

She hates:
- fat people
- being groped by randoms
- condoms
- the fact that once a bra size goes above a D-cup, the straps become thicker and uglier.


So.....translated into what she really wanted all the guys in the thread to know:

I am skinny, I am hot, I get sex, and I have big tits.

LOLOL. Oh how I miss her and her ego.

Very angry

People who try to fuck around with my gf's laptop when she's either at uni or her bollocks flatmate who has discovered 'disk defragger'

People who ask me to fix their pc's or offer advice on upgrading their dial up connection...

People who manage to get a BE and still not speak English

Girls who wear heels on my Wooden floors

Arts/Media students who talk about some linux vs Ms conspiracy they read in the listener.

Bad food!!! i really hate going to new places and paying good money for mediocre food

Uni computers that run on 60hz.

I feel better now

Angry talking

What grinds my gears? On the odd occasion I have to crawl around on hands and knees under a users desk (usually to plug a network cable in) someone has to make a sexual innuendo loaded joke about it. FFS, I have herd them all, none of them are funny.

Not where I work.

I have two sets of evidence that corroborates this:

1) The cleaners leave the seat down with toilet paper over it - the middle stall is always the last one left like that.
2) The cleaners regularly fill up the toilet roll holders, I've noticed that the middle stall usually has more paper left than the two side stills.


60Hz is evil.

what if the kitchen was missing a wall or three? what if it was fire damaged? It's like an insomniac saying he doesnt want to see any bedrooms because he doesn't sleep. All you did was make yourself look like someone with issues.

Soo true - that's why I brought LCD screens for home (running at 75Hz) and my refresh-rate is at 160Hz at work. It gives me killer headaches when I'm using regular CRT monitors below 75Hz, and can generally percieve the flicker (in my left eye mainly - because it only has peripherial vision) upto about 85Hz (varies with the monitor type, brightness, phosphor response time etc)

Some Pet Peeves for me are noisy high-pitched ciccada-like noises comming from the dodgy flourescent tube wirring at work (headache++), Small dogs that their owners treat like cats (because then they act like a high-string, grumpy version of a cat - mercurial and vicious), shitty people taking things out on me when I'm trying to actually help (not thinking of any particular BNZ mobile mortgage manager in particular, no, not at all), drivers that show NO awareness of other vehicles on the road to the point that they pull sideways into you when you are alongside them, without even indicating, and then when you inform them that they need to get back in their lane with a blast on the horn they accelerate and cut you off without indicating, narrowly missing your front bumper (that goodness for well-maintained, strong brakes), slow down once out in front, then slam on the breaks to slow before the speed-camera, despite already going under the speed limit.... Ah you get the gist...

Thats true

its maybe because - if you have to do something that might be really smelly (ie you had indian/mexican/lots of alcohol/all of above the night before) - or loud, then if you are in the end cubicle there is only one person going to potentially sit in the one by you and hear/smell it

though if you exit the middle one and it stinks its probably more believeable that it might not have been you but the person on either side - at least you can exit and screw up your nose and look at boths sides like 'where did that come from??!"

speaking of loos - was out south in the weekend and stopped at dennys and the loos there were disgusting, turds in one, everything in the other - and about 45 mins to get a frigging drink....

It grinds my gears that telstraclears tv schedule tool only has 3 channels showing at any one time, and that they have recently changed the channel picking select list from from channel number order to alphabetical order. grr.

It waxes my snowboard that ANZ's online banking web page insists upon resizing itself to take up the whole screen, and that it cant handle "back" (I use mouse gestures). Their excuse for making the page take up the whole screen almost pushed me over the edge. I emailed them basically saying that I didnt like it (just commenting, maybe if they get enough they may change it), they responded with "ANZ's internet banking is a very intensive web site, most computers wont be able to handle multitasking while using the service". WTF???? And now there are ads on their Internet banking website. Admittedly, the product is available to ANZ users cheaper and it is from the website. Pity there are free alterntives, if ANZ really cared about its customers, it would advertise the free product.

It really hocks my lugy that paknsaves catchphrase is "Everything we do, we do to save you money". This is an out and out lie.
What they mean is "Everything we do, we do to make us money. We have decided that by being the cheapest supermarket, or when we cant, projecting the image of the cheapest supermarket, is the best way to achieve this". Marketing in general actually.

It really shines my shoes that you can get a parking ticket for not having a registration on my car. Why is it bad not to have a registration on a parked car? Its not like I am going to crash my parked car, causing an injury to someone who then gets compensated by ACC. You know full well I have no where else to park my car motherfuckers.

It really irks my irking muscle that you dont get a ticket for not having a registration, warrant or parking exemption sticker. You get it for not displaying it properly. You cant say "opps, I made a mistake, I forgot to put my rego in that little plastic holder thingy, thanks for revoking my two hundred dollar fine". Its not that you didnt have one, its that you didnt display it.

It really rips my undies that people insist on not obeying traffic laws at intersections. For example, you cant change lanes in an intersection fucker. Its dangerous to change from the inside lane to the outside lane (move left), while indicating right to navigate a right hand turn at an intersection. EDIT: 2 same direction lanes are involved in this one.

And probably the most pathetic annoyance I have is people mis-using the phrase "begs the question". You mean to say "prompts the question". "begs the question" means something specfic, and it does a good job of efficiently getting the meaning across. If we assign a new meaning to the phrase, we will have to use a more cumbersome phrsae instead. Yeah, its pretty petty, and I am no english expert. But there you go.
