    Default The Minor Irritance / Insignificant Gripes Thread

    This is the thread for all those gripes that you know are so unimportant in the grand scheme of things, and yet you cannot help but let them bother you.

    For instance, do you know what really grinds my gears? The fact that I always offer to get tea / coffee for my colleagues, but there is this one guy who never EVER offers to get drinks for anyone else and only ever thinks about himself. He just got up a couple of minutes ago to make himself a cup of tea, and didn't say anything to anyone.

    Also I bought a can of drink out of a vending machine yesterday and it should have given me 20 pence back in change, but instead it only gave me 10 pence.

    Grrr.

    Your turn. The more insignificant the better.

    People who call Borders to ask what the phone number of the place is. Come on.

    Also, students who have to always answer every question the professor has. It's doubly annoying when the professor expects answers and that person isn't there.

    People who eat while they're on the phone to me.

    People who get on the subway before I get off.

    When cars stop to let me by when I'm happy to wait for the signal to cross - then they watch me pass by. Creepy.

    People who never talk/laugh/make coffee in the office shouldn't be there man! Go work on a farm.

    people who can't park cars.

    Say you're trying to tell someone something rather serious, and they take it in a funny manner and laugh, laughing harder as you try to tell them.

    People who casually run a red light while you wait to make a left turn.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    same for subways. Especially at busy stops. Somewhere like Times Square or Grand Central, like 50 people get out of each subway car, yet the people on the platform don't seem to realize that and just push right in and block the subway door.

    can of drink, that made me chuckle.

    But ya, I havent driven in many other places but, SoCal drivers piss me off. Especially ones that drive with their fucking dogs on their laps and the ones who eat while driving, especially on the freeway. And I dont mean a Granola bar in one hand and holding the wheel with another. I'm talking about a fork in one hand and a bowl of salad in the other, driving with your knees. Arrrgh

    EDIT: I just noticed alot of these posts mention bad drivers as well...

    im slightly irritated that stef always starts a whole new thread for a news story i already read about. which makes me wish he would just post it in the articles thread. but he wont. he likes the attention of posting old news in a new thread. It's unimportant in the grand scheme of things, and yet I cannot help but let it bother me. thanks.

    When you dont have any change, and you would give it to them if you had it, but the homeless still yell at you in their homeless language, that you didnt understand, but you know it wasnt good.

    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.
