People with a 94 Civic and a $50 muffler who think they own a sports car.

People who punch away at their keyboards threatening to do bodily harm to someone else sitting at another keyboard somewhere else.

People who claim they are of some religious faith and then toss away any credibility of it by acting in the opposite way of what everyone knows their religion is all about.

Sometimes both of them get mixed up in one person too.

What really gets me mad is when I try to make a right turn at a red light and the person beside me is preparing to make a left turn when the light turns green.They are almost half way into the intersection which prevents me from seeing traffic coming from the left.Why can't they stay back behind the stop line while the light is red?They can't start their turn on a red light.I feel like shouting to them.Did you get your drivers licence from a popcorn box or are you forgetting that it's a left turn you're making?

I want to get the damn price on the food I buy even if I forget my stupid club card... Why do they need to know what I Eat? It makes me ill...

I have seriously been escorted out by the police on 2 occasions over the last 5 years, I forget the damn card go to the register and...once in awhile some dumb #$%Ker will not use thier card and make me fill out a new form... and hold the whole line up to do so Or I can't get the advertised price...

and even then I never, ever put my real name or phone number anyway... so If I forget it of course... I don't remember my number to punch in...

But it's sick, it's the pinacccle of Big Brother to need top track my name and address to get a bowl of Captain Crunch and it really makes me mad...

Who the hell are they? What are they tracking the crap I buy to the type od cancer they give me later on from it? It sickens me... and no one makes a fuss...

But I do, anytime It happens I forget the fake card I am going to make a stink... and whats scary is how gestapo they will actually get over the issue... seriously, they will escort you out unless you fill that card out if you insist on the discount...always... sometimes the person behind the register just swipes you, mostly the person on line behind you will give you theres... but if you have the manager come over it's like the train conductor on the way to Aushwitz...

and ... when I used to work at a supermarket long ago, I used to steal beer and piss in the pickle barrels when I was a teenager... and for a time I felt bad about that... But now I'm glad I did that, seriously, I don't know why they want my info to buy food or what the real deal is (and it's more than market research) But I have no regrets for anything I ever did wrong when i worked in one of those places, all the big chain grocers are run by minions of the antichrist

people who stop at the top of a escalator, with no thought for those behind them trying to get off it, almost causing a pile up.

people who ask you if they can jump the queue and say "sorry im in a rush", like nobody else in the queue has anything better to be doing other than waiting around all day.

people who phone you to try and sell you products, if you wanted them you'd phone them or go to the shop, so why the hell bug us in our freetime!

shops trying to sell you extra's when your paying at the till and asking if you want their storecard etc etc. if i wanted it i'd ask!

people who park their cars on the pavement with only two wheels on the road! you have to walk on the road to get around. they have no thought for mothers pushing prams etc.

anybody who knocks on the door after 10pm! and expect you to answer it!

people who complain about the smoke from your cigerette when your stood in a clearly marked out smoking area! go stand somewhere else then!

people who tell you you've done it wrong because you did'nt do it their way, even though the end result is exactly the same.

people who think their gadgets(moblie phone for example) somehow give them more appeal, who gives a toss who has what? its the job it does thats important! your gadgets DON'T make you more attractive or a better person than anybody else!

people who ask "why did you that" so you explain, then they say " well thats no exscuse". but you asked! i answered! it was'nt a damned exscuse! it was the reason! the reason you asked for!

people who think TV soaps are real and try to hold a conversation with you about them!

people who are in a trance whilst shopping! "must shop" "bargain, bargain"
"nothing else exsists, must shop" and they step out in front of you to get to a shop window and you end up bumping into them or have to stop dead because they totally cut off your path, and they don't even notice they did it!.

i could go on all day about alot of things, but sometimes things do get to the point of I'M AS MAD AS HELL AND IM NOT GONNA TAKE IT ANYMORE!

and i think i'm certainly gonna start saying more about rude people, start saying what i'm thinking instead of just ignoring it.

well everybody is ignorant about something. ignorance is simply those lacking in knoweldege about that certain thing or certain facts about that certain thing.

we are all ignorant about something or were ignorent to it and there are some things we will always be ignorant about because nobody has the knowledge or facts about it, it would be impossible to know everything. if you mean ignorant even after the KNOWN facts being pointing out to that person then i agree.

Living in the UK and watching our freedoms disappearing everyday with no real movement to stop it. I hate this country now and I cannot afford to move. Stuck in the prison called the UK. Cant even protest now without the pigs sticking their snout in and arresting people, removing material that is anti-establishment and generally harrasing ordinary people who are trying to stick up for what rights are left.

I am mad as hell.....

Okay, guys. All of you are more intellectual than I, but here is my "pet peeve".

Please, someone, do away with Billy Mays!!!

Sometimes I am in the perfect mood of a lovely movie, when next thing I know, Billy Mays is yelling at me to buy Oxy-Clean or a few dozen other products. The absolute insult makes me furious! Why are these companies allowed to inject his obnoxious voice into our mood? Yes, I have the option of hitting the mute button, which of course I exercise that option, but it's the insult to our intelligence that bothers me. I must hit the mute button in order to escape his yelling, irritating voice. So, it comes down to this, we can choose whether to be treated as imbeciles or not. We can listen to Billy Mays or we can hit "mute". Life as a human in America is not something I choose to not endure if these are the choices. Just my two cents worth.

Do away with Billy Mays because it is what he represents, what he stands for that is the issue, not him as a person. Actually, he's cool because he learned how to benefit from the idiocy of humans, and I am jealous, but that still doesn't make his voice easier to endure. Please, no more Billy Mays and all the implications of him and his grating voice!

things that really burn my butt

people who feel the need to insert card after card into atms as though they are slot machines.

people who feel the need to stand in doorways chatting.

people of wider than average girth who when out and about in a group feel the need to walk side by side.

when at the check out at my supermarket women who wait right uptill their groceries have been scanned to decide to rummage around in their tardis like handbag looking for their purses of 10 dimensions only to find out they have no money and they forgot their CC's and atm cards.

people who follow me around at clubs and pubs playing all the machines that i leave and they win big when i won nothing

people who cant drive but think they can

that will do for now .. making myself angry just thinking about all this...

I read the opening post, but am still working my way through. In that spirit, I would like to vent out a frustration that hit me this weekend.

Closed minded, uninformed people with no desire whatsoever to hear, debate, or learn about the world around them.

Here is the background. I was out with a few friends Friday night. Myself and another began discussing the world around us, to include the bailout, financial crisis, NWO and coming election. We started to talk and decided that we should go outside to discuss, away from people who might otherwise be out to just forget about their troubles rather than have it thrown in their face. We were outside having a very good debate. Our views are similar, with a some distinct differences in opinion. This is a very good thing to openly listen and be heard. He asked questions and posed some very good points. He listened to me and answered my questions from his view as well.

The iritation came when others came outside and stood with us. We were talking about the candidates and the coming vote. This girl was standing there with us for a few moments before she asked that we stop talking about politics. She did not want to hear it. She was sick of people talking about politics and the "junk going on". "It doesnt matter anyway." Well, since she made the effort to come outside and invade our privacy and interject into our conversation, I turned and posed a question to her. I asked her if she knew how many candidates were in the presidential race. "2 or 3." I asked her if she knew Ralph Nader or Ron Paul? A puzzled look hit her as she said "no". I turned back to my friend and we continued debating. I figure she could either remove herself from our space or listen and learn or even join in with questions, which would have been fine with me.
She started again asking us to stop talking about it. We moved across the patio away from her and kept going. She didnt follow, but she also didnt want to hear anymore of our debate. She wanted us to join everyone else in relinquishing our passions and just go quietly about our lives without "bringing it up".

I have no problem with people who wish to remain closed off to the world around them. It is a personal choice to learn or remain stupid, see or be blind, rise up or remain a sheeple. It is a personal choice for me to debate the issues to spread what I have learned and to learn from those around me. I will NOT be bullied into closing my eyes and going back to the dumbed down life with walls and no windows that I once lived in. I have found my cell doors key and I will not be locked away into ignorance. I will help anyone that wants to find their way out. I will not force my issues onto anyone that does not want to hear them.

I wish THEY would extend ME the same courtesy.

people who bring 70 items to the express lane of a grocery store, and the management of such stores for not enforcing their own policies. what's the point of having a sign that says 10 items or less, if it's not enforced?

and politicians who assume I am stupid enough to believe they care about me and my needs.

and the tendency for the general public to be dumber than a sack of doorknobs.

the other thing that burns my ass is a flame about 3 feet tall.

A.) FINALLY I was hoping somebody would like my Avataer. I thought The Joker in that piece would be GOLD!

B.) Even with myself being southern california (the Los Angeles/Orange County area) I'm shocked that people don't speak up at those kinds of things! It seem to me that if somebody throws a BIKE in the CANAL that should be reported. I mean, it's the canal, it's not THAT big. Let's keep it clean, is that so much to ask?

C.) Now, to be fair, I've seen in my own areas of the world, verbal abuse dealt out to the elderly, the disabled, the um..."racially diverse?" and whenever I can I say something to the offender. Usually something akin to, "why? Why do you need to say that?" or "Why is that funny?" or "Hey! Tell me why that makes you better around your friends, why is it cool to make somebody else feel like like sh*t"? More often than not they aplogize and walk away. I don't get it. I don't understand that kind of silence, I won't say I haven't done similar things myself, I will say I've at LEAST defended against something akin to the quotes above. But, I've had many more options walk by me, ashamedly. I try to promote love and equality as often as possible, but sometimes you're drunk and in the moment. I don't excuse myself of those...

D.) I'll be honest, I have never persnally spoken up against bad service, BUT, I also try to be a really good customer. I speak to them as people, I treat them with the same respect as i would to somebody I'm good friends with, and I always give the best tip I can. I'm young so, unfortunately it's not always very much. (Might I add, if you have a table of people in their late teens to early 20's, if they tip you, just be okay with it, they probably gave you everything they could. Assuming they were cordial to you, if they acted like jerks all night....guillotines...that's all I'm sayin)

So um...after a MASSIVE it isn't just local. But I hope I gave you some perspective as far as an artist in (unfortunate) Orange County, CA can give!

Hmmm, is that even if you're sitting next to a good friend?

I have a few friends and we'll whisper things like "Okay, so not that movie" and honestly, if it's a really good fim we'll (litterally as quietly and directly into thre ear without disturbing the other members of the audience) make fun of lines in the film. Honestly, if we're making cracks on it, that's how we know it's a good movie, but we also sit in the first 3 rows. We know what we are and we do everything we can to keep our experience as quiet as possible as independant as possible. We all shut down our phone by the way.

Is what we do at all okay? Like I said ,we try all we can to have a personal experience while tying to maintain everybody elses experience and P.S.--We've nver been requested to "shhhh" actually we have been more likely to request a "shhh" than the other audience members, at least proportinately(sp?)

I hate that in my experience the stereotype keeps fitting. I keep wanting to say "well, maybe it's broken" or "maybe they forgot" or "mabe they're head is full of ither important things and they just forgot!"

But every time i've thought that, since I moved to Irvine, CA 6 months ago. EVERY time it's been a tiny old asian person. I'm not saying it's an old asian person thing, actually what I'm saying is that I'm afraid it wil lgive me a bias AGAINST them.

Thank you very much for your reply!

I understand what you say about teenagers. And to me it's okay for them to be loud. (god know I was at that They need to manifest themselfs and find their own identity and that comes with a lot of "acting big". It's also this behaviour with which I'm not concerned. (well maybe if it's really really bad but in general not)

I'm much more concerned with adults who behave in an anti social way. That behave like the entire world is theirs and you are in their way.

I also want to get back on the bad service thing. I also try to treat people likewise. But sometimes....

I want to tell you about something that happend to me a month ago. I was taking the bus from my mothers house to Utrecht (major city big trainstation... so I needed to get there to get home). While we were driving 120 km on the highway the busdriver got his cellphone out and started text messaging and taking pictures of himself

He missed a turn because of it and had to drive another route trough Utrecht missing practicly all stops except for the final one. One lady got out just before the final one and asked why he didn't take the usual route (from her position she didn't see what he was doing behind the wheel). He said he was taking the usual route. The lady apoligised for her mistake
and left the bus. When we were at the final stop I walked up front and said:

"sir could you please not use your cellphone behind the wheel anymore. It is against the law and you could hurt a lot of people when you loose control of that bus. Also you wouldn't have missed that turn if you hadn't been using your phone"

He started to reply with: "i didn't use..."

Well I didn't let him finish that sentence and I repeated the thing I said above with the addition that I saw him doing that with my own eyes and that he didn't have to deny it.

The reply was like the ones you sometimes get.... total silence.

I believe the correct reply (especially from an adult) would be to apoligise but he didnt.

Now my point is at least 5 more people in that bus saw what I saw. But none of them spoke up. I just wonder why people do that. Because if nobody mentions to that man he's doing something wrong, he will just keep on doing that.

Anyway... I made a huge reply again I really should be of to work soon so I better start getting ready.

There's so many things I could rant about but this one just happened to me yesterday in the grocery line. Fifteen registers and only one cashier was on one. I'm waiting in line for the other five or six customers to get done and of course they have full grocery carts and I just have about five things to buy. I would normally use the self serve registers when they're working but today was the day that all four of them were down. I wait for about five minutes and there's nobody behind me yet. Finally I see another cashier headed my way and a couple other customers pull up behind me with full carts of food. The cashier says I'll take the next customer over here and as soon as I start over there another customer pulls in there out of nowhere with a full cart. So now I'm out of the line I was in and behind an old lady who you all know will take their time. I'm still holding the five things in my arms and I just take them over to the next register and set them down and leave. This has happened to me so many times that it finally got to me. I'm a very patience man with six kids and can take alot before I say the hell with it. Anyway I went down to the next store and went right through with no problem in the self serve. Thanks for the thread Dave, that felt good to let out.

What I mean is people that you give a DVD to about 911, martial law new world order etc and then they say

"My country would not do anything like that, don't you love your country?"

After passing out thousands of DVD's I have to say that for the most part it is a waist of time.

Those who are brain washed remain brain washed!

However I think that in the very near future many of them will come to the realization that what they saw on the dvd's was true.

I gets real old trying to wake people up and very very few wake from their

Fluoride in the water.

Genmod in the fields.

Pharmas pushed on every one.

The side effects that yields.

As for the posters that don't like abuse of children and the ones who don't like a lack of discipline of children, I see a fine line where firm direction sits. A better choice than abuse ("discipline") and letting them run undirected.

Thanks, Dave!
