I habitually set my phone to vibrate when entering a restaurant. I don't know why that is so hard for some people.

I remember a time at the movies where this chicks phone rang during the movie and I got annoyed but he no biggie. Assuming she would have put it on vibrate now, it rang again. Now, you can hear some chatter among the audience like why the fuk is it still ringing.

It rang a third time and some guy yells "COME THE FUCK ON!" I had to admit it was a bit comical how that went down.

Calling a customer service line with an automated system that makes you enter info with the keypad like account number, ref number, etc only to eventually be connected to a live person who makes you repeat the info. Why did I have to enter it in the first place if it doesn't carry over?

People issues:
When someone my car door shut with unnecessary force. Like damn, they open and close normal doors like same human beings but all of a sudden my door is treated like a bank vault that needs to be shut for the next decade. I am really annoyed at people who greet me from behind by grabbing my shoulder. I don't like how the folks at Starbucks insist my black coffee needs cream after explicitly telling them I wanted black coffee. Lastly, I hate facetious people who purposely ask questions they already know the answer to.
Misc Peeves:
I don't like drying myself with a previously wet towel. I don't like runny egg yolk. I don't like the smell of bleach and vinegar (that combo) together. I hate bringing friends/family to a nice steakhouse and they order their expensive ass cut of steak well done. I hate public restrooms that have the cloudy semen looking hand soap. More to come later as I think.

The first one really irks the shit out of me. I constantly have to tell my SO to close the door with a slight shove. Feel like the windows going to blow out one day.

The second one just made me crack up.

What bothers me more are public bathrooms that can't afford an attendant to wipe my hands and tell me how good I look before I leave with a spritz of body spray and a pat on the back.

I fucking hate these mornings, when I don't have the capacity to make even coffee right! I mean come on, 20 years of making a pot first thing in the morning, and today I added twice the water and ended up with shit tasting, weak coffee!

If there is someone who works in a phone company, I'm willing to pay very well (you can have my coffee) if the international lines will be cut for the weekend. I can't take this anymore. I have lived here for six months, how the hell can the time difference still be a surprise?! Just let me sleep one nigh, or at least like 3 hours straight every week, and I will be much less of a bitch.

My in-laws speak very little English. What I find fascinating is that most Americans who speak to them, after finding out they don't speak much English, do so as if they are deaf. The just say things MUCH LOUDER. It's really stupid.

My mother speaks about 5 languages, but nothing is worse than her speaking any of them. it's insane who much volume is needed if speaking for example in English.

Oh god, she's coming for a visit soon. This morning could not get any worse.

Edit: no, she did not have a sex change operation done in the middle of the sentence, I just can't write without coffee.

I hate those touchless sinks! I need more than 2.4 seconds to take that cheap pink soap off my hands. Instead, I have to wave my hands under it for half hour because the sensor is shit and the water gods felt that I already had plenty of time. I just wipe my hands on my pants and walk away.

I don't mind the touchless sinks. There aren't any time limits on them from what I understand and I can usually find the "sweet spot" to get them to work for as long as I need.

I hate the "press-to-start" faucets that restaurants install -



I'm washing my hands and 5 seconds later the damn thing turns off. Well, my hands are still soapy, so now I have to re-soil my hands by pressing the knob again which prompts me to get more soap which necessitate even more washing time and I'm caught in this never ending positive feedback loop.

When the guy from help support claims his name is Andy when his real name is clearly Hauchmahd.

My wife works in customer service and the rule of thumb is to never use your real name. If you're in India and dealing with Americans, exclusively, then why not pick something they are familiar with?

we have a community parking lot at work that is cobblestone with no lines on it, so you are supposed to park close enough to the car next to you but still leave room for other vehicles.

well the tree in the front is deciding it wants to lose branches that are about 40 feet in the air and have a diameter of around 3-4 inches around.

since everyone parked like asshats today and didn't leave room, the only space available is under said tree, so i parked like a jagoff in the middle of the lot so nothing would fall on my car.

can't wait to see how many people ask me to move it so they can go get mcdonalds at noon

My grand dads funeral, well the coffee part of it, a woman answered a call while I was giving a speech I didn't even want to do. She started to go trough a recipe for cooking chicken.

Well, let's just say that integrating that to the speech was fun, and I get less Christmas cards for the stunt I pulled.
