What is the most irritating thing to you that no matter what you cannot get over it?

I LOATH the way people eat and drink. There should be no slurping or gulping. Why is it so hard to not do this?!? And I should not hear your food swishing around in your mouth. GAG ME! No one in my family chews with mouth open or anything, but they are so noisey!!!! This has always been an issue of mine since I was a kid and the harder I try to ignore it the more it botheres me. What is your irritant?!?

  • I work for the American Red Cross in blood collections. I understand that people have fears about needles and the whole process. We have people who work for us who have problems with donating.

    BUT... When you can see that someone is really having a problem with it, it really isn't that hard to be genuine in your concern for them and try to talk them thru the whole process. But when you get someone who is just creating drama, or insisting that "You only get ONE stick" or some bs like that, I have no patience. Blood donation is voluntary. If you don't want to do it, don't torture me.

    I honestly had a preacher sitting in his own church screaming like a little girl. One of the teens who had donated walked over and told him to "consider the pain Jesus was in". That shut him up!!!! It was hilarious.

    Sorry for the long drawn out answer, but it irritates me ALOT!

  • Hmm where do I start lol? I think one of my biggest ones is ignorant drivers. I live in a big city about 20 minutes away from the Mexican border where they apparently have no driving laws so people think it's okay to drive like that here too. They just have no concern for other people on the road whatsoever. I've literally been driven off of the freeway by a taxi van with my baby (who was only 5 weeks at the time) clearly in the back seat. I was pissed!!! But they don't care. If they need to get somewhere and you're in their way you might as well be invisible.

I also hate when people pick their noses. Boogers gross me out to no end, if I see one I'll puke. No lie. My hubby showed me one when we were in the shower "Oh gross! Look how big this is!!!" and I threw up all over. I hate hearing people blow their noses too...... *dry heaves*
