People who talk very loud on their cell phone in public. (Jac). This beats all.

xmas carols in NOV!


They should be played ONLY during Christmans week. It should be law.

I don't shop at stores who play it in Nov and I tell the manager every time it happens.

There's a radio station here that does not play xmas songs until after the 12th of Dec. Guess who I listen to?

when the local convenience store puts the wrong coffee in the 'regular' pot.

those who drive - yet haven't come to terms with the blinker lever ( i wonder what they do in the rain... or at night... ) eek !

snowblowing a three hundred foot driveway - three feet deep in snow in 30mph swirling winds and 3deg F temps.

et al.

Internet users that over-use terms and words to the point of absurdity. Eg. Epic, as in "Epic Fail!" or "Wow, that post was epic"

11 year olds on XBox Live that apparently live in Children of the Corn land.

Holiday Shoppers.

The Tim Hortons by my house that can't make a decent mocha if their life depended on it, forcing me to drive to one farther away to get a decent )%&#)*% mocha.

1.) People who obviously can't parent.
2.) Out of control kids. ( see #1)
3.)People who can't speak English yet are in charge of providing me a service.
4.) Cats.
5.) Dogs that jump on you and their owners who think it's "cute" or who say " they just want to love on you".
6.) Stucko houses with Spanish tile roofs.
7.) Drivers who think they own the road.
8.) People who don't communicate clearly then get upset with you because you didn't get what they meant. (women are usually guilty of this more so than men)
9.) People who are late to places.
10.) Required 2 year contracts with cell phone providers.
11.) Guys having girl names and girls having guy names. Their parents should be slapped for being "cute" when naming their kids.
12.) People with normal names, but goofy ass spelling. Again, another slap for their parents.
13.) Onions.
14.) My right armpit. It sweats even when I'm cold.
15.) Dusting.
16.) People who don't understand that photography is more involved than just pointing a camera and hitting a button.
17.) Cold weather when there's no snow to justify it.
18.) That coffee stains your teeth.
19.) How expensive good beer is.
20.) How everyone believes they deserve a tip these days.

Just to name a few...

Telemarketing auto-bots that ring my damned phone and then ask me to HOLD! Excuse me? WTF?

And, everything the guy above me posted, especially number 12! :) hahaha!

What you got against tile-roofed, stucco (note correct spelling) houses? Stucco is an economical cladding in dry climates, tile roofs (at least originally) were made of available materials (read "dirt") in the areas where they originated and are a superior roofing material in areas where brush fires are common, like Southern Cal. The whole package is basically an indigenous architecture; I'd a lot rather see stucco-n-tile houses in the SW than faux-tudor McMansions or mansard roofs...

What's even worse is when these people LAUGH at me (like at fast food counters) when they can't understand my deaf-accented English :-(

Awww, don't hate the people that are stuck with these through no fault of their own :) Hate the names, not the people!

1. The fact that I don't have another 50 or 60 years to do more of this thing called life.
2. That so many people cannot see the silver linings in their clouds. (I heartily recommend the movie Michael, with John Travolta, for those of you so challenged.)
3. That my body has not kept up with my spirit.

let me add: that I also dislike the poor car washing skills of the moose. They lick and lick, but leave messy swirl marks all over the van. They don't even try to dry the vehicle after they wash it. They could wipe it down with their furry hips ... buffing it out really nice.

I don't like nucyahler power, jewlery, or realators.

I don't like what I should of done, but I do like what I could have done.

Well, don't come to Japan in November - they've been on since the beginning of the month, as well as Christmas trees and "order your Christmas cake now" posters at various stores.

I dislike grapefruit, natto and overly salty foods.

My bad on the spelling. I don't like 'em because they're ugly. It's that simple. I'm not knocking their functionality. Those giant wings on the old school Daytona's were functional, but they were still ugly.

That's just wrong. Sorry people at times do that too you. You don't deserve it.

Edited my post. I don't dislike the people with them, just the misappropriated names themselves. And the parents who gave them to them.

That thing that people do with two fingers on each hand quoting someone as if they are making speech marks around the words the are saying.

Christmas carols & christmas advertising at the end of October. Man, that was early this year.

It always rains at 5 o'clock when I have to walk to catch my train home. That is probably a gross exageration but I notice it more when it happens at 5 o'clock.

I can easily say the same. Buses here cut you off like it was a hobby or a game, and it's legal too. I sometimes wish I was driving a tank when I see some bus drivers drive. I wouldn't use the turret. :)


LOL, Since I'm not driving in Montreal I guess you can't blame me for those bus drivers. NOW....if you come down to northern New Hampshire I could be. *grin*

Whiskers on Kittens
and Warm woolly Mittens
oops, dislike...

Insensitive people
People who seem to celebrate being ignorant
People who say "Well that is how it has always been, not going to change, so stop dreaming."
Megapixel hype
People who defend corporation misdeeds as acceptable, if it is good business sense
Apple
...

I could go to town with this topic and probably lose most of the respect I have here so I will stop here :)

People who casually drop a mention of some event in the midst of a conversation, then when you have forgotten a month later say, " Well, I TOLLLDDD youuu!"

Parents who stop their kids from doing the right thing. (Eg; not letting them stop to pick up the garbage they accidentally dropped, or to hold the door for someone.)

Adults who treat teens like crap simply because of their age.

Olives and anchovies.

Body joints that forecast the weather.

Stuff that's too heavy for the dustmop to pick up and too light to stay put in front of the broom.

Forgetting that I've put my glasses on the cover of the hot tub, and having to fish them out after I close the cover.

People who leave their diesel trucks idling for half an hour while they visit on the lawn.

30 items at the express check-out,and cashiers who won't send the overloaded folks to another line.

Trying to think of a 10th dislike.

eta; OMG, can't believe I forgot this one, after having to spend part of the last two nights sleeping on the couch to get some peace and quiet....

SNORING SPOUSES!! :)
