Things that tick you off that no one seems to "get"

every time i go to my school i pass a frat house that has a bid day sign hanging from their balcony. its an American flag with their Greek name and some other words written on it. but its not a poster or sign with a flag is a store bought American flag that they poster painted on. it really irks me and i hate seeing it. i explained this to a couple of ppl and no one seems to get why it bothers me (except my retired AF dad and a colleague who was in the Army).

so what things bug you that dont seem to bother any one else? or that no one else understands?

  • I absolutely hate the way our school does their afternoon carpool. They double park cars and it's incredibly frustrating and confusing for people using carpool for the first time.

  • Yoga pants and spandex... who the hell needs to see that stuff outside of the gym or yoga studio? Those and leggings worn with shorter shirts. It's basically walking around in your undies and a shirt. Leggings are supposed to be worn under something... like an oversized shirt, a skirt, or even shorts.

  • I HATE when people try to help me cook. If I need help, I'll ask, and until then don't touch my damn food. Thank you. (I'm pretty sure I get it from my mother, so she probably understands).

  • Appliances that make beeping sounds like the microwave & the toaster oven. I'm very sound sensitive.

  • When people mispronounce very simple names of towns, streets, etc, usually Spanish names that they pronounce with English phonetics. How hard is it to say Pueblo instead of Pieblo?

  • More of an irritation. When women wear cloths that are to tight for them and all their flab is hanging out. Gross! Don't people look in a mirror before they go outside anymore?
