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

    sense, rather than grossly uneducated people that annoy me. As it stands I only have a bit of college education so it's fair to say that people with a potential to gain more knowledge but for whatever reason have not are not in the same boat as one who just don't have a clue...

    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...

    "durrrr...is That A Rockband?"

    I too am deeply annoyed at those with no common sense. Although I definately agree with the saying that "if common sense was common then everyone would have it". But for some reason my main target in this story is my younger 16 year old sister, the same one I frequently mention...

    When I was a very small boy,

    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...

    Spelling Nazi Vs. Facebook

    I can let SOME grammatical errors go, but spelling is one thing i just can't let go of. Facebook is now the place i go to if i want blood to boil. A misplaced letter in a word is a bit more forgivable, but not taking the time to tell the difference between "their/they're/there...

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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.
