I. Am. Not. A. TERRI.

I am a Tess

To be honest I'd call you Teresa since I don't know that and that's the name on your card.

But it drives me nuts when I go to the bank, make a deposit, my FULL NAME (Alexandra) is on the deposit slip, and the teller says "Thanks Alex!"

I'm like--first off, you don't know me. Secondly, I HATE being called Alex (I go by Alexandra). To be honest I'd rather go by Mrs. Spears if they don't know me.

Maybe I'm old fashioned...but it just seems to be more polite.

One time I got enough guts up to say, "It's Alexandra."

People who act silly. Its just utterly annoying.

People who act stupid, believe in stupid or absurd things, or enjoying pretenting to be stupid, which is stupid.

Love, its terribly annoying in all forms, along with sex.

Those who feel a gender role is important, because it isnt...

-slow people in the fast lane

-people who ask me for advice and then do exactly the opposite; only to come back and lament theri fate when it doesn't work out

-people that have to have the TV inanely loud and sit 3 feet from it

- I agree with the one post: STUPID sitcoms like Will and Grace, Charmed, The OC, Bernie Mac, Gilmore Girls, etc.


- skanky ill-dresses vixens that strut like street trash (and get paid millions to do it) and that shrilly warble off key at concerts designed for 11-15 year olds

-while giving technical directions over the phone, the "luser" does something completely unrelated and acts suprised when it doesn't work

- urban music played really really really loud (I don't mind it, sometimes) at a sickening hour

-people who can't wear their pants around their hips or waist

-those who can't use a turn signal properly

ARRRGH! Time to destress.

Me? Well, my pet peeves mainly come every weekday, I hate school. Not because it is school, I like that stuff since it comes so easily to me, mainly no life+Parents that insist on buying every book they see. We end up with 5 sets of the same book/series because one buys the book/series, then the other, then later on they forget they bought it and repeat. But the people at school drive me nuts!

Druggies who think they are cool because they can't remember their schedule or where the room is at
Cheerleaders who think they are gods(or goddesses, whatever) but are just annoying. They really hate me since I am such an *** towards them when everyone else worships them
Jocks who act like the King **** that they aren't. Also hate me since I don't bow down to them
Blondes in general, sorry just because you are blonde doesn't mean you have to be stupid, ignorant, a complete ditz. There are plenty of smart blondes, just can't think of any...
The white kids who want to be black, I'm sorry, they live in freaking Bono! Yes Cleveland is only 70 miles away(only sarcastic) but still you are not black, you never will be black, so stop using gang signs/eubonics. Eubonics is not a language unless gorillas grunting at each other is a language.
People who think I am stupid because I don't do any work at school. I don't need to, I get it done in 5 minutes at home and turn it in. We haven't read a book that I didn't(or parents) already own/read. School is to easy for me so I don't do anything at school. They are gonna be surprised when I get to do a speech at graduation.
And last but not least, Principal Holoe, she is such a ditz(blonde!) A druggie could snort a ten foot line of coke in front of her and she still wouldn't realize there is a drug problem at our school.

Outside of school?

People in general
Christians(Pat, Dobson, your basic give me money or go to hell kind, or ones that think ID is real but science is evil)
Professional Baseball(Sorry taking steroids is not a sport)
Golf(God that's boring)
Green Bay Packers(We finally won a game!!!!!! 52-3! Now if we had just scored some of those during our other games... Lions lead the NFC North! How sad is that?)

People that try to convince me to do stuff, after the nth time I said NO!

People when they interrupt me in the middle of doing something, especially work.

The worst of them all... People that don't wash their hand after going to the washroom!

"If your **** is that dirty wash your ****!!!!!!" No clue who

Now if you crap and wipe, so forth, yes clean, but unless you pee on your hands why? If it is so dirty, as said, clean your penis!

My major pet peeve is the corruption of people in power.

It seems that where ever there is power, there is abuse.

I'm still trying to figure out what you're saying it a take on George Carlin's skit about toilet paper/wiping butts?

Anyhoo. Another Tinkly pet peeve:

(did I mention this already?)

(sorry, if I did)

This word: Niche.

It is pronounced "neesh". It's a French word. And it is quite definitely not pronounced "nitch".

People who make annoying sounds such as clicking their tongue and then denying they even made a sound....

posted on Oct, 10 2005 @ 06:26 PM
These are for people who know what urban living is all about:

-children that run out into the street without looking

-children who cross the street niiiiiiiiiiiiice and slooooooow, looking at you like YOU'RE the problem while you idle in your car at a green light

-animal neglect (don't let ME catch you leave your pet in a car with the windows rolled up)

- people who talk in another language (in an obvious way, while you are there) and then look at you and laugh (at which point, if my friend is there, she and I look at each other and speak German to each other and laugh back)

-men who walk around clutching their nether regions. should be permanently attached. What are you holding on to?

posted on Oct, 10 2005 @ 06:50 PM
Oy, I have a lot... But mostly, I hate it when people speak incorrectly, either intentionally or just out of stupidity. :bash:

Annoying and continuous sounds bug me too- Like pens clicking or crinkling water bottles or clicking your tongue... It's distracting!

Ignorance I cant stand it. I will make you feel bad if you are ignorant

Remembered a new one: Wicked.

I HATE when people use the word wicked. I don't know why, it just pisses me off to no end. I really hate it. An old girlfriend did it every now and then, drove me nuts.

"Bare with me" is an invitation to strip. "Bear with me" is a request for patience. Learn it.

There's a reason the sign says "Cash Only". If you don't have cash, YOU'RE IN THE WRONG LINE!

"12 Items Or Less" does not mean "12 Dissimilar Items". 16 candy bars and a gallon of milk is 17 items. If more than 12 need to be rung up, YOU'RE OVER THE LIMIT!!

Any ordinary dink who passionately supports a political party. Do you really think they give a flying flippity flop about you? Get a clue. You're meat on the hoof.

people who call the wrong number over and over and over...and act confused everytime you answer.

crackheads who can see i don't have ANY money to spare and ask for it anyway.

cops who follow you for 3 miles just to make you nervous.

One of my major pet peeves are these people that have a car like a little Mitsubishi, and they put that loud exhaust on them.

Makes me want to tell them to buy a car with a REAL V-8 in it.

Another one of my pet peeves iare people that blast rap music going down the highway.

A third pet peeve of mine are people that call us West Virginians, or any people from the hills, dumbass inbred hicks. We have more sense than a city boy when it comes to things.

People who wander aimlessly through the grocery store. They never stay to one side of the aisle or another. They're always right in the middle and they never turn around to see how many people are waiting to get around them. Not a slam against senior citizens, but that's usually who they are. They just want to peruse everything in the store probably 'cause they have nothing better to do.

Another is people who look over every package of meat in the meat department of the grocery store. Hey lady........I need some ground beef too!!! Are you going to be done some time this freakin' century??????????

When you ask someone what they want to eat and they say, "I don't know" or even worse, "I don't care".

When you let someone in, in traffic, and they fail to wave a thank you.

People who pull up to a drive thru and don't know what they want.

People who use the express lane and have half a cart full of groceries.

People who use "like" as every other word.

People who allow their kids to throw tantrums in public.

People who are in the child services departments, making life or death decisions about children and families, when they have never even HAD a child of their own. You CANNOT be an expert on child care if you've never had a frickin' child, no matter how many books you've read or degrees you have.

People who park sideways because they believe their car is SO nice that it DESERVES two or more spots.

Movie Theaters that charge you more for a small popcorn and coke, than it costs to get in the frickin' movie!

People who don't wash their hands after using the restroom...that's just plain nasty folks.

People who seem to have nothing better to do than sit outside their home all day. You pay hundreds or thousands of dollars every month for shelter. USE it....

People who spend thousands for college, and yet don't seem to take it seriously, and don't apply themselves in class.

People who can't grasp the concept of a 4 way stop.

The idiot who thought parallel parking was an excellent idea.

The inability of the human female to regulate body temperature, resulting in a constant adjustment to the thermostat request (up or down), on a regular basis of more than once each hour.

When ATS is down....

Ok, that's enough for now, hehe....
