    First time I've listed any of these.

    People that invade the personal bubble. It's there. You don't see it, but it's there. Like, don't poke/hug/slap/nudge or whatever the hell you're trying to do. You'll get yelled at. I hate when people assume they can enter your space automatically.

    I love the idea of getting a foot massage,

    but I absolutely hate having my feet touched. When they are touched, I cringe, wither, laugh and maybe even cry a little, until it's over. My body just doesn't know how to react. It doesn't hurt and I don't know if it's a senual thing, but it's an indescribable feeling that...

    Seriously? On An Airplane?

    Why do people think it is appropriate to get on an airplane and cut/file your fingernails? First of all, the clicking noise of clippers annoys the heck out of me, but then to watch bits of fingernails fly through the air and land on other peoples' heads is gross. Oh, and I just...

    I Strongly Dislike Guys Telling Me I'm Legal

      There’s an expression that I really dislike a lot. In fact, I hate it. The premise behind the expression is so insulting and demeaning to girls when expressed by a guy. Before you get too critical of my dislike for this expression, please understand that I already...

    Talking On The Cellphone On The Potty

    When nature calls me at work, I just want to sit down and poop in peace. The last thing I want to hear is a pooping cohort in the next stall talking on his cell phone. Dude, you're just not that important to be talking on the phone while taking a ****. When this happens to me...

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

    Bad waitresses. Like at Red Lobster,

    We asked for the check while she was checking on us(the one time she did) Then she took 40 min to check on all the tables around us. When she finally brought it she didn't even say sorry about the wait or anything. The restaurant was not even busy at all.
