    What Grinds Your Gears

    Post by Nightwolf on Wed Sep 17, 2008 11:59 pm

    Hey folks. This is one of those topics that asks "What annoys you to the most extreme that you want to get rid of it for good?"

    The one that gets me is those trousers that are three quarter length so the legs stops between the ankle and the knee. They drive me mad! They are the worst piece of fashion i've ever seen! I would not wear a pair of them for a million quid. THAT'S how much I hate them! Every time I see someone wearing them I want to punch them and say "Wear some proper trousers you idiot!" I despise them! I don't think we need a cross between trousers and shorts. One or the other people! Not a mixture!

    I like those, depending on the length. Coz there are some the end right above your ankle - which I think is pointless and looks stupid. I like the ones that end after the knee.

    I take it we're speaking about items? In which caaase... lemme think... hmm... I'll have to get back to you on that one. XP

    I can't stand the "Madonna" piercing. I think it looks hideous.

    Okay, I can't think of any items that annoy me at the moment. So I'll go on to things that I dislike...

    Arguing, assholes, attention seeking, backstabbing, chavs, cheating, cigarettes, drama queens, drugs, jerks, inconsiderateness, lying, nastiness, selfishness, thieves, whores, and maybe more I can't think of right now.

    Oh, and you know what kinda annoys me and I think is totally stupid? People using "it's complicated" on Facebook. I know we spoke briefly about it before, NMD, but I still see people using it and I still don't see the point.

    If you're together, you're together.

    If you're not, you're not.

    Simple.

    Okay, I have more...

    People who don't use captial letters in their topic titles!! >_<

    And people who are either too lazy, or too brain dead, to use Google before asking something stupid!!

    I mean, c'mon people!! I'm reminded constantly that I'm an idiot (and have probably never been in the posession of a brain), but even I have the (apparenrly not-so) common sense to use Google!!

    Oh! And people who make excuses. _'

    Stuff that tells you how many calories are in it, but by weight of a random number rather than the actual weight of the product (chocolate bar, crisp packet, soda bottle, etc)!!

    For example, I found a site that listed how many calories are in seven Rolos... but a packet has ten Rolos!! You can't buy them in sevens, so why list the calories in sevens!?

    And another site told me how many calories are in 100ml of a VK Apple instead of just telling me how many are in a typical 275ml bottle!! You can't buy them in 100ml bottles, so why list the calories in 100ml!?

    Just tell me what's inside the actual item I purchase!!

    Here's another one. People smoke and that's up to them. Now when people do smoke and they blow out the smoke after an inhale, the smoke drifts directly into my face sometimes. I hate that. That does grind my gears. Smoking is a terrible habit but that makes it ten times worse.

    That kinda thing drives me crazy!!

    If they wanna harm themselves through smoking; fine. But they (and by they, I mean those types of smokers - not all of them are like that) have no right forcing anyone else to breathe in their smoke!!

    LIARS!!

    I know this is in my list of things I posted before, but I found out something about a couple of "friends" of mine and I need to vent!!

    It takes alot to annoy me, but I'm really, really angry, upset, and disappointed in them.

    They've both been doing things behind my back, after lying to me about me about them!!

    There was never any need to lie to me! But they've done it anyway.

    Nice. _

    Some people are scum Ki. I know what you're talking about and those two don't deserve your friendship. I know how hard you tried with one of them in particular and for him to go and do that: disgusting.

    I don't have time in my life for this kinda crap.

    I just can't believe they'd do what they've done to me. After all the things they've said to me.

    But, whatever. I've got bigger and better things to be focusing on.

    Oh, and also, I won't say who you are, but thankies to the person who alerted me to all this. I really appreciate it. =)

    Hmm.... Glad I don't fit underneath this category. I vowed not to lie... three years ago already? Wow.

    They knew it wouldn't hurt me, because I'd made that clear to both of them several times.

    The only reason I'm hurt now is because they've been lying.

    I don't believe lies are ever needed.

    I only know vague details, but I do agree that the lying was not needed. If I ever lie, it's usually due to force of habit; for example, before my last gf, it had been 3.5 years since my last gf, so I was used to saying that. Afterwards, however, I was so used to saying "more than 3 years" that I still said it.

    Sometimes people resort to lying without thinking, but often correct themselves when they realise or picked up on it.

    What you're talking about is making a mistake, not deliberatly lying to someone.

    That's true. Someone deliberately lying is out of order and unnecessary.

    No offence, but I don't believe that for a second.

    I'd rather be hurt by a truth, than be "saved" by a lie.

    let say a person was looking for a mate of mine to beat him up and asked me if i knew where he was I would lie.
