    Stop Talking Already

    My biggest most annoying pet peeve is my dad. He will tell a story, over and over, usually changing it in some way. He will tell it over and over, even though I have heard it a million times. And then he will think I don't believe his stories. He thinks he had just the most...

    I Hate When Latinas Don't Give Me The Time Of Day

    Yes, I truly do. I will admit this. It doesn't bother me if a white girl or black girl isn't interested and can't appreciate some flirting or attention, cuz they're a dime a dozen, but it does bother me when Latinas don't give me the time of day.I typically don't have this...

    Because life's a big joke.

    .. you want up one morning, realizing you've just wasted your life just because you tried to comform to social norms, and in doing so you've slowly gone down a spiral staircase of depression, until one day you think you've found the answer and that doing this stuff doesn't matter...

    Moping the floor and the old fashioned mop

    I Have A Few

    I hate it when people drag their feet.  I hate the noise.  It makes them seem like slobs.  I don't like when people brag about themselves all the time.  I do not like it when people take advantage of others.  I don't like seeing people...

    My biggest pet peeve is probably

    when people do not even make the slightest attempt to spell words correctly. I understand when you want to shorten things using "U" or "R" instead of the actual words or saying "talkin" instead of "talking" but there are some people that just make you wonder how someone can be...

    It Bothers Me

    I normally don't say anything, but sometimes seeing young adults advertising themselves irks me. Q&A is almost like skimming through want-ads sometimes. I don't know if it's because I think they don't understand the implications of their questions, or if it's because I think...

    Listening To People Eat

    I can't stand hearing another person eat. The entire process drives me up the wall. Munch, crunch, chew, swish, saliva, swallow--OH MY GOD, I can't put up with it. I have to have something to drown it out or I have to leave the room.

    Ignorance

    I hate it when people type like dis. When people spell dat instead of that. There's so much more ignorant typing I see online, but I think I'll leave it at those two examples. I don't think it looks cool .. Honestly I think it makes people look like morons.

    Ahh It Drives Me Crazy Until I Fix It

    I can NOT stand when the toilet paper roll is backwards. The paper is supposed to go over the roll not behind it. If I go to a friends house or even a public bathroom and the roll is backward I will fix it. (If there is not a lock on the spool) that's all I have.

    Trust

    There are endless tales about trust: how important it is to marriages and relationships from the business kind down to just friendship. Yet it seems to me that many violate a key edict of trust when they insist that their significant other not talk to anyone of the opposite sex...

    Today's

    I have many, but today's is: when having an argument screaming the word 'WHATEVER' with such disgust and walking away, does not make you the winner. You look and sound like a spoiled child that can't get his own way. Try acting like a man until you manage to become one.
