Little things that annoy you

Tired of talking about video games? In here you can talk up ANYTHING else going on in the world or beyond...

Little things that annoy you

Postby Eternal Rain » 24 Jun 2013 02:22

In other words, a "pet peeves" thread. Because why not? (no "huge" annoyances like TSA or stuff like that, which would be a whole other can of worms)

-People who talk while eating
Not just because it's "rude," but also because 1) I can barely understand what you're saying (which happens with a certain family member I know and no matter how many times I tell him this he keeps doing it, constantly annoying me), and 2) I just can't stand that weird... "click" noise people make with their mouth while eating and talking at the same time (like not enough food in the mouth to sound muffled, but still "smacking"). For example there's an episode or two of Game Grumps I just can't watch because Jon and Arin do that for like half of the episode (eating candy while recording or something) and it makes me cringe in a "nails on chalkboard" type fashion.

-Cockroaches
Heh yeah a literal "little things" that annoy me. Probably the one animal where I question its existence. Just what the heck purpose does the cockroach serve to the environment? All it does is go around and spread disease. They look gross and even their name makes them sound gross... "roach." It's one of those odd times where I sometimes think that both religious people and scientific people can go "why does this thing exist?!" (not being completely serious on that last sentence, please for the love of everything do NOT start a religion vs. science debate or else I'll ask for this to get locked)

- Most loud high-pitched sounds, and beeping sounds. I just can't stand them, they've very annoying to listen to. I'm sensitive to sound and those sounds just make me stressed out if I hear them too much.

Loud noises for no apparent reason.
There's a person in my office that does this...a lot. Instead of just setting a stapler on the table like normal person, it sounds as if she's building a shelf for each and every item. Also, she's loud when she types. I can hear her in my office with the door closed!

I'm a person that values silence. Excessive noise is one way to get on my bad side.

Wooping audiences. I can live with 'em. Mostly. But they are just unbearable at times. Cheering? Lovely! Stamping feet? Obnoxious but OK. Applause? Classic!
But why the hell do you need to bark/howl? Obnoxious but... heck it's just plain obnoxious.

While cockroaches are pretty awful, much like spiders (which are even more awful) they are important for the environment. If cockroaches went extinct, it would cause animals such as mice and rats to die off in great numbers, though they almost certainly wouldn't go extinct. This, in turn, would cause the numbers of animals who feed on them, such as all sorts of cats, wolves, coyotes, countless types of birds and reptiles, etc, to drop significantly, and this would ultimately cause problems regarding the things we depend on them for. Furthermore, cockroaches eat decaying matter, which contains nitrogen that otherwise doesn't get reused. They -- there's no good way to say this -- defecate the nitrogen, which is absorbed by plants; remove the cockroaches, you remove the nitrogen, and you subsequently remove the plants. So, yes, cockroaches: icky, but essential.

Back on topic, though, most things that annoy me are big things, but I'll think of a few. When the buttons on my DualShock 3 controller stick. Having to change batteries or recharge something. Phone calls that aren't for me. Walking to classes. Amanda Bynes. Not being able to get back to sleep after using the restroom in the middle of the night. People who use the word "jelly" in place of "jealous." The fact that Family Guy can't seem to write a good episode to save its life anymore.

I guess that's actually a pretty respectable list.

People who stand in the middle of the aisle at a store talking and ignoring the people that need to get through.

People asking for prayers on Facebook for the dumbest shovel. Sure, want to ask people to pray for your sick mother, thats cool. Want to ask people to pray so you can sell your car? STFU.

One more Facebook thing. People who post a courageous or heartfelt story or message and then at the end it says something like "97% of my friends wont repost this, but 3% will. Which one are you?" It's annoying. It's a great story and i get the message, but why are you trying to guilt everyone into reposting.

(Btw, I rarely use Facebook, but when i do that is 80% of my news feed, and it gets old)

Oh I just remembered another. People who add hashtags to everything (or "the number sign" which is this sign here: #). Twitter itself is not something that bothers me, but I hate it when people feel the need to add a hashtag to everything in an effort to try and get something to "trend." Even freaking musicians are resorting to adding hashtags to their song titles as a cheap way to make sure the song trends on social media sites like Twitter (will.i.am and Mariah Carey being major offenders right now).

Can't think of a lot right now, but I really dislike when you can hear someone breathing. Like when they are breathing through their nose, yet you can still hear it. Idk, it bugs me.

People getting off subject of something. Man, I've seen a lot of boards that talk about vs. something or which is better. Yet there's that one person that says something unrelated to the board. And that really pisses me off.

Yeah, I agree with that.
On top of that I'd like to give a special mention to the self-entitled people that tend to do stuff like that. De-railing. It's often when they feel they're being "victimised" when they're really the ones that make it all about them in a kind of emo way.

I'm not saying it's strictly them but as an example, there's been more than a few bronies out there that have done that on a few YouTube videos I've seen. Ones that have have absolutely NOTHING at all to do with the show. It ends in a long tussle spanning pages of comments before finally the author intervenes and blocks them entirely.

I'm gonna stop now before I rant much more. (Even though I kind of want to.)
Spoiler:
You think of one thing and you get reminded of another thing to add and I'm quite bad at that unfortunately.

Long lines
People who stand in front of doors chatting but don't go through
People who stand still on moving walkways
I guess those 3 are kinda related

Fleas.

I'm not even a Cat or Dog yet they won't leave my legs alone! I can't even walk outside my own backyard without seeing the horror show that unfolds. D`: (I blame my sister for not washing her dogs enough.) :evil:

There are lots of things, but the first thing that comes to mind is the sound of ripping paper, especially construction paper. I hate the feel of it too.

Those wonderful people who need to stand side by side with enough people to pretty much block your way for anything.

It's just asking for a public invitation to play Red Rover.

The fact that people compare obscure games to games like action 52 or superman 64.

No seriously, people do that. In fact people are doing it on the vegas stakes miiverse community

I got one.
*People that ask a lot of redundant (or otherwise, obvious) questions. My mom actually does this to the point it gets really annoying.

an extension of hammer's: people who post obvious or simple questions to comments/forums and wait for a reply rather than take 10 seconds to do a google search. 99/100 times that's what anyone answering on the forum will do anyway.

- People that say the Roman Numeral for ten (X) as the letter 'X' instead of saying 10, in a title of a video game (but I guess it works with all mediums), RMC does this a lot and it pisses me off.
- Stupid people in general, but that's an obvious one.
- Children... because they scream a lot.
- People who don't use proper grammer when writing/typing.
- People who complain about RPGs being confusing and difficult, and to a lesser extent, being intimidated by the length, scope or depth in a video game.

That's not it but let's keep it short.

The word "GAMER". It really gets me how so many people act so pretentious over the title Gamer. Like what exactly does that title even gain them anyway? It's a stupid label about an entertainment medium and you're going to let that define your way of living? Like playing video games all day is something to be overtly proud of. They get so angry when people bring up games they say aren't 'hardcore' enough, like mobile or facebook games, and say "You're not a REAL gamer! >:(((((((". I play games a lot but I wouldn't let that define the person that I am, as it is not all I do.

A post I read on another site put it much better than I could when they said, "The stereotype [that comes with the word gamer] is a pretty unappealing one, and what upside is there? You get to act smug? That's nothing! Who ever needed an excuse to be smug!?"
