I Am Annoyed At Those With No Common Sense

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,556 People

    To quote Einstein: Common sense is just

    that set of prejudices inculcated into the masses before their 18th year" We have plenty of 'common sense' and it gave us the Iraq war, 9/11, the invasion of Panama, the invasion of Grenada, the murder of 241 Marines thanks to Raygun...the list of debacles and stupid decisions...

    Aw Smuckers........screw Dat !

    I find it unfair that a woman can't walk into a gas station without being ogled by multiple men, standing there drinking their beer, who would only hold a door open for the opportunity to stare at her *** as she passes ....Follow that with rude comments made not quite out of...

    after reading about theBaltimore Riots im just

    fed up. I know. I know, police killing people is bad but seriously? Burning buildings because of one controversial death? That makes things worse. Theres a difference between Riots and Protests. Protests (depending on how powerful) can bring change. Riots bring police states...

    Get rid of all the warning labels

    and let evolution take care of the idiots :) ! I dream of a world where you can't sue a supermarket chain for falling over your own child, scalding your hand on a McDonald's coffee, or have to warn people that knives are sharp. Then again toddlers are allowed to have "training...

    Pet Peeve

    Semantical Pet Peeve : referring to a person who has a fever as " having a temperature. " Everyone has temperatures. All the time. They usually run about 98.6 degrees... And then there was that terrible boy band 98 degrees....But that's a different story.

    Math

    Ok....so I wasn't going to post this because it's not my nature to normally complain like this. I know I'm not as young as most people here. But do they still teach math in High School? I'm so shocked at the lack of basic understanding of Math. If we want to succeed as a country...

    I used to be more tolerant

    but a vast majority my generation engages in some of the most ridiculous things and put those things before the seriousness of educating themselves... So I have a 0 tolerance policy of nonsense and no common sense.

    I'd like to say that it's people with no common

    Uncommon Sense

    It's very annoying because you have to explain it to them when it's so obvious.  Now I think you should name it uncommon sense!  Because COMMON sense isn't so common anymore.

    A Hangover

    When you tell people that you're hungover it just makes you sound like an alcoholic. Don't tell people you're hungover, just explain to them that you're having a delayed allergic reaction to alcohol......It sounds better.

    I'm not into common sense all the time.  I mean, I love some kinds of nonsense a lot.  But the absence of a certain down to earth attitude or a lack of realism is highly annoying.  I just can't stand floating people.  It's impossible to deal with them and...

    Yes *%_&

    One thing I don't understand is the point of mocking or belittling someone. Does it make the one doing it feel like a " bigger, better " person ? For whatever reason it is being done, be it size, shape, clothing or whatever; that person is not the joke for being who they are. The...
