  • What Really Grinds Your Gears?

    I was in a restaurant today enjoying a nice meal with the girlfriend, as a couple who had obviously tuned out their screaming child also enjoyed their meal.
    This continued for at least 20 minutes and the parents acted as if they were completely unaware that their little sh!t factory was screaming bloody murder.

    DO SOMETHING WITH YOUR KID!


    What really grinds your gears?

    Where do I start????

    OK, first thing that popped in my head was loud talkers in airplanes. People, either STFU or learn how to talk in hushed tones.

        People that complain that movie theatre concession prices are too high, and that if you were to lower prices, people would buy more. 100% inaccurate.

        Also hate the people that say you should put healthier choices at movie theatres. PEOPLE DON'T BUY THEM!!!!! Do people complain about restaurant prices the way they do movie theatre prices? NO! Don't buy anything!

        Do I sound like I have a vested interest? :)

              No one's making you read 'em chief. This isn't the first time you've complained of them.

              We're killing time til the season starts.




              You know what grinds my gears? Waiting for this season to start. 11ish days left.

                      What really grinds my gears is when the digital cable guide clearly says one show but is showing something completely different.

                        While I would probably need to hold my breath, I would not mind her grinding my gear.

                          What really grinds my gears are people who eat with their mouth open.

                              People who are fat (and I don't mean a bit pudgy, but like "I have to get a handicap parking pass so the I get to park closer to the store" fat) not because they have a disease/disorder but simply because they can't find the time to get off their fat ***.

                              People who go out of their way to not like something or someone.

                              People who don't take the time to comprehend that everyone has to deal with bull **** too.

                              People who can't take a joke.

                              Racists.

                              People who think you're racist because you don't like the stupid things they do/say even though it has nothing to do with the color of their skin.

                              Women who think that all men are awful and that men don't ever get the **** end of a relationship.

                              People who judge too much with out knowing.

                              I could go on.

                              I know, there is a chance (a good one probably) that I said something hypocritical, but I think what matters is I'm trying damnedest to not be. Everyone does or says something hypocritical at some point in their life (which scares me since Dante said one of the lower rings in hell was reserved for hypocrites, but maybe that's just people who knowing live with hypocrisy and are okay with it? or maybe those who are hypocritical to the extreme? eg a Jewish Nazi?)

                              Now a couple of cool things that my post reminded me of:

                                            On a more serious note, it really bothers me when work gives me crap over being an involved father (I go to all of my son's well checks and since we are expecting #2 in December I have been going to all of my wife's appointments, plus I will take off 3 weeks when the baby is born). Why is it so hard for people to believe that a dad can be an equal parent to mom (rhetorical)?

                                                    Pouring a bowl of cereal to later find out someone drank all the milk. It just pisses me off right now thinking about it.

                                                    People who stand in line and when it finally comes their turn they are indecisive and don't know the hell they want.

                                                      Twerps in the movie theater fiddling with their Cell Phone / texting while the movie is playing. I have sworn off theater visits for this very reason.

                                                        I like that.

                                                        Looking forward to the great leftovers in the fridge and skipping the fast food on the way home from work, only to get home and see someone (WIFE) ate it all, and now she's asleep and I'm not gettin' any. No leftovers either.

                                                        NOW I'M TOO TIRED TO GO OUT AND GET SOMETHING!!!! DAMMMMMMMMMMMMIT!!!!

What did he say? What happened? Say it again" Pay attention from the start jackwad

                                                                              Why does half the population have to act like they will be leaving work, their home, or wherever they are as if someone is chasing them?

                                                                              Why would someone back into a spot driving a '97 Taurus? And even if you have a nice car, STFU nobody cares.

                                                                              I think it should be illegal.

                                                                              I hate pulling into work behind someone who does this and then having to stop far away from them, so they can take their time, have their space, and back into their spot.

                                                                              I hate driving down a street and having a car stop and then having to go through the trouble of figuring out what the heck they are doing. Once I go around them...yup they reverse it back into their driveway.

                                                                              It's a selfish act.

                                                                              If you're driving in the street, you should respect your fellow drivers, use your turn signal and pull into your driveway like normal. When you leave, you wait until the coast is clear and then you reverse it out of there.

                                                                              Habitual back up into parking spot people, why do you do it?

                                                                              And if you have a circle driveway, would you still do it?

                                                                              When you park at concerts, and things of that nature where you're directed into rows, does it rob you of your masculinity to park your car with your hood facing in?

                                                                              I want answers.

                                                                                  The 300 lb lady who orders a salad in the cafeteria because she is "on a diet" but then proceeds to get fried chicken strips on it with extra ranch dressing.

                                                                                            Why does half the population have to act like they will be leaving work, their home, or wherever they are as if someone is chasing them?

                                                                                            Why would someone back into a spot driving a '97 Taurus? And even if you have a nice car, STFU nobody cares.

                                                                                            I think it should be illegal.

                                                                                            I hate pulling into work behind someone who does this and then having to stop far away from them, so they can take their time, have their space, and back into their spot.

                                                                                            I hate driving down a street and having a car stop and then having to go through the trouble of figuring out what the heck they are doing. Once I go around them...yup they reverse it back into their driveway.

                                                                                            It's a selfish act.

                                                                                            If you're driving in the street, you should respect your fellow drivers, use your turn signal and pull into your driveway like normal. When you leave, you wait until the coast is clear and then you reverse it out of there.

                                                                                            Habitual back up into parking spot people, why do you do it?

                                                                                            And if you have a circle driveway, would you still do it?

                                                                                            When you park at concerts, and things of that nature where you're directed into rows, does it rob you of your masculinity to park your car with your hood facing in?

                                                                                            I want answers.
                                                                                            A good friend of mine ALWAYS backs into parking spaces. He told me that it's a military thing. He said when he was in the Army it was against rules and regulations to pull into a parking space...Something about being ready and alert. But I agree, it drives me crazy too.

It's one thing to "Brendyn" as opposed to "Brendan" but I draw the line at Tiphonie (Tiffany) M'rhiyah (Mariah) or Areeana (ariana) or Mikehl (Michael) all names I've seen working in the medical field, and don't get me started on some of the dumb names people give their kids, like they're purse dogs.
