    There's one thing that I can't stand.

    .. When somebody leaves a shopping cart in a parking spot. It wouldn't kill somebody to take the time to take it to the cart holding thing - whatever it's called.

    I made a list once. Had over 100 things

    that annoyed me. Here's one: when people don't put the first letter of someone's name into a capital letter... First, middle, last name, nick name, pets name, doesn't matter. MAKE IT A CAPITAL, DAMMIT.

    I can't stand loud boisterous people.

    It annoys the heck out of me, but especially, women and girls. I think I'm like this because of my religious background. We were taught that loud boisterous women were not in their right order...I'm no longer religious but I still think that there's no reason to be loud all the...

    There's been a large influx of followers

    who are almost young enough to be my son, but they are shirtless. They even have little six packs. Children, put your shirts back on for a year of two. You are not yet ready for human consumption.
