What I mean, what is something stupid or trivial that bothers the crap out of you.

Mine is our measuring cups. They are on a ring so that they are always together.

That also means when my wife or daughters use, say, the 1/4 cup for some sugar the entire set gets tossed in the sink which I HATE. It drives me nuts.

The obvious solution is wash the one that was used by hand. But that never happens...

My father's remote-control collection. He has about 5 remote controls: one for every audio/video component in his television room. He refuses to use a universal remote. This shouldn't bother me, but it does.

Perfume or aftershave adverts.

"I'm not going to be the person I'm expected to be anymore."

Basically they've got a product that's pretty tricky to advertise in a meaningful way so they provide some aspirational fantasy. Either they are offensively reductive or insultingly asinine.

Drives me hopping mad. I mean I'd kill household pets, burn buildings, put a fork in your eye and welcome friendly bombs... Happy holidays everyone!

Of course, I ruin the zero calorie benefit by smearing it with veggie dip or blue cheese dressing.

I'm with Altair. A food's primary function ought to be to provide fuel for the body to burn for energy (i.e. Calories). Zero-calorie food is as useful as Putting water in a car's gas tank. It's a waste of chewing energy.

Now where did I leave that steak...

Whenever at work someone calls our system APX instead of AXP. I am compelled to correct it. The Project Manager calls it that just to annoy me. Others, they just don't have a clue.

It drives me crazy.

Touching my face. For some reason I can't stand when people touch my face, even my wife or kids. Kissing is alright, but putting your paws on it drives me up the wall....or my belly button. *shiver* DON'T TOUCH MY BELLY BUTTON!

Leaving the refrigerator open. Pull an item out close the damn door. Open the damn door and put something back in. Don't leave the door open while you do something with said item!


People who complain about ad-sense on BGG. YOU GET PORN ADS BECAUSE YOU SURF PORN, PERV!

Ever notice how they NEVER respond to the thread once someone points that out?

Being written on. Marker, pen, whatever...it's all the same. I can't stand it.

1) Do random people generally attempt to touch your belly button?

2) Would it be ok if said random person kissed your belly button?

I think I heard one time that about once a year that QVC or one of the other shopping channels forces its hosts to advertise perfume over television.

That doesn't even make sense....

Wiping a sieve dry. Surely if it's retaining water, it's failing as a sieve?

Hey, the nudity was tasteful and essential to the plot. And I was young then, and needed the money. And it wasn't me, it was my roommate. Heck, that's not my browser - how did that get in my search history?

My white hot all-consuming hatred of celery has nothing to do with it's uselessness but it doesn't help it case either.

I cannot stand the texture, the strings, the smell or the taste.

It imparts its smell on anything metal like beer cans....I can't eat or drink anything that kind of smells like it

Blue Moon and some other wheat beers have this sort of celery smell to it....makes my sphincter curl just thinking about how much I hate celery.

I hate it when you peel the cover off of yogurt or peanut butter and it tears. Especially peanut butter, because it leaves that foil stuff on the edges.

Oh, another work one that happened (again) today.

We have a coffee pot system where you brew double pots of coffee and they go straight into a carafe. Well, on a regular basis when all of them are full, there is someone who will put a filter and a new pack of coffee in the basket and let it sit there.

This bugs the sh*t out of me.

That and passive aggressive signs.

OH I hate when it says "Peel here" and you do, but then just the edge peels off, leaving the entire rest of the foil thing on there. So. much. rage.

Or you tear a bag at the proper place and it's still completely sealed making you have to go get scissors to open it. Why do I even try anymore? It never works. Never. Those people that makes those "easy-open" bags are lying, sadistic bastards.



Oh sorry. Was I ranting? laugh

When did contacting people become "reaching out"? All I want is some tech support, not a share sodding emotional breakthrough experience.

It's worse when it's in news reports, especially about really trivial matters: "We reached out to The White House about the ocarina shortage in Iceland, but received no response." That's not reaching out, that's pestering.

Drivers who throw lit cigarette butts out of the window while driving.

...it bugs me when any litter is thrown out, but it's particularly aggravating to me for some reason when this happens.
