1. When you're meeting someone for the first time who's in every single one of your classes and obviously knows who you are, and he asks "aren't you in my class?" with a straight expression on his face. You know you're in my class, stfu.

2. People who write letters on their facebook statuses addressed to people that will never see it (eg. Dear cashier at Safeway on isle 6, next time don't blah blah). Grow a pair and say it to their face you fucking pansy.

3. People who pronounce their "r"s very strongly. It's literally the reason why I can't listen to the WSJ podcast (Gina Cervetti). It makes me want to throwup.

4. Reddit

5. Behavioral interviews and some of the dumbass questions they ask you like "when was the last time you faced a challenge?" I realize that the whole point is just to see if you can communicate (and bs) well, but seriously? You've got to be fucking kidding me. Those kinds of questions almost make me not want to work there.

6. Useless circle-jerk clubs/organizations that don't actually do anything besides electing each other to "leadership" positions.

7. How it's generally considered "insensitive" to ask your high-school or college friend that's working some temporary shit job (eg. flipping burgers, cashier) and doesn't plan to make a career out of it how much he's getting paid.

8. People who major in "Communications"

I can't think anymore at the moment. List out all the random things that piss you off.

negativity really pisses me off... ahem ahem

it's a never-ending circle and I hate myself

-pretty much anything on facebook... taking pictures of your [chinese/arabic/indian/weird] food (OH WHAT A SOPHISTICATED PALETTE), trash talk aimed for somebody but not enough to actually get that person's attention, the albums of somebody's night out where they have 100 pictures (what the fuck? were you just taking pictures all night? "hey everybody smile and make goofy faces like we're having fun!")

-people who act like the US has the only stupid people in the world

-when the people who got us into the current mess we're in bitch and moan about how we're fucked cause of our next generation (something tells me this happens in every generation)

-when people take a series of pictures that looks like they just went to a Denny's and threw their camera at the table, then act like it's art (my high school art teacher actually put up a display of something exactly like this... there were seriously just pictures of ketchup, mustard, and sugar packets sitting at a table but OMG 37.5 degree angle makes it edgy!)

-people that reinforce their ethnicity's stereotypes (bad stereotypes... I don't care if you like watermelon)

-there's more but I gotta pass out

If your dreams don't scare you, then they are not big enough.

Sure, but you gotta give that you have a lot of it, with weird levels of stupidity (e.g: tampon eating guy), and they thend to enjoy attention. Nevertheless take it as a pseudo-compliment, you can afford those people, in other developed countries they might be ostracized, while in underdeveloped the would be invisibly dying of hunger :D.

Are you guys unfamiliar with StockTwits? How about using it as a platform for overthrowing governments? I find Twitter way more functional than Facebook. Plus it forces brevity - something this world is in desperate need of.

People that are constantly on their phone when out at a bar.

People that wear black dress shirts. You look like a douchebag, so stop it.

Twitter. Don't use it, can't see myself ever using it, and find it very annoying how suddenly "@Something or "#something" is the new way of communicating things.

Also, Groupon. I have yet to see one single thing that I would consider buying, and I've been getting them for 6+ months. How are they considered so great? Really, unless you want a spa treatment - which seems to make up over 50% of the Groupon offers in my area - they don't really offer anything that fantastic.

@Eddie:

StockTwits is great. I totally agree. I also see the purpose of Twitter and read some people's feeds (despite not using it myself.) My point is that it's not some groundbreaking business, but rather a great tool for people to utilize.

I just find it silly when people speak so highly of it from a business standpoint. The way you read about the founders of Twitter on sites like TechCrunch, you'd think they had founded the next Lockheed Martin or some such shit. In reality, it's a free online application to post your thoughts of the moment. Most of the content on it is complete junk. Again, I see its power as a tool for broadcasting instant news and communicating with people you might not otherwise communicate with, but let's not make it out to be something it's not.

People who can't walk. I'm not talking about handicapped people. I'm talking about people who walk as slow as humanly possible, who stop dead in their tracks to look at a store, who stop in the middle of sidewalk to talk to their buddies, who decide to walk kind of fast, but not fast enough in a diagonal direction, effectively cutting you off for an extended period of time (you know what I'm talking about). You've been doing this since before you were 2, what is the problem?

Cab drivers who drive with two feet (all of them), i get so fucking sick when they constantly apply the gas and brake at the same time.

I used to hate that condescending look from cabbies when asking if they take credit. Now, I actually thoroughly enjoy it. If they say no, just tell them that you have no cash and that you aren't going to pay them, it is very empowering and they will immediately tell you they take credit. Also, what pisses me off is when cabbies are in the left or right turn lanes and they sit there and honk when the car in front of them isn't moving. Well the car in front of them isn't moving because he is waiting on all the pedestrians who are crossing the street and have the right away. To sum it up, I pretty much hate everything about cabbies and my hatred towards them has only increased with time spent living in the city.
Additionally, people that are unaware that the left lane on the highway/interstate is for passing, it is not for sitting in cruise control at the exact speed limit.

Ugh... True Story:

I took a cabbie back from the bar one night with a buddy. First thing he says when we get in the car was 'you better pay' and we were like ughhh okay no problem. We ended up getting in a little bit of a argument with the guy because he went on about how bad America was or something because the last person ditched the cab and didnt pay. When we got to our destination, he said okay you pay. We told him we had credit only and started bitching at us about no no no he only takes cash. Well, we told him credit only. He ends up getting furious, reaching for something under his seat (I thought gun) and taking out a baton. Chased us out of the taxi and the cops showed up at that point to straighten the shit out.

All over credit... and he hated America...oh and I guess b/c of the last group ditching and not paying. hahaha.

I also get pissed off when they stand 2 feet from the entrance of a building and smoke, forcing everyone going into the building to walk through their cancer smog. If you smoke, whatever, I don't dislike you or anything, I just don't like smelling like smoke clinging to my freshly washed clothes, it disgusts me.

You probably don't play much online. I lost with 4 full houses online in a night before(2 of them against quads, 1 against straight flush, and the another one was boat over boat. However, I was playing 12 tables at the same times for 4 hours).

Even in live poker, I hit quads at least 7 or 8 times. I started playing poker a lot since 2006. Although I made some money from poker, I wish I never played it. I wish I went to classes and studied my ass off.

Things that piss me off.

People get personal while playing poker.

Fucktards who think they are smart.

Backstabbers.

Ugly women who think they are the shit.

Adults who act like gangsters and think they are cool(adults who act like high school kids).

I hate skinny jeans too. It's not even the appearance that gets to me, it's more the fact they're willing to subject their balls to such excruciating pain, all for the sake of looking like women. Once I accidentally bought a pair of jeans that was too small, though definitely not "skinny jeans" small. After about a couple hours my dick couldn't take it anymore and I haven't worn them since. Now when I see guys walking around in skinny jeans, I assume that they must have small dicks because otherwise I can't imagine how they could tolerate the pain.

Another thing, I hate people who constantly bitch and moan about their friends behind their backs, yet when they see those friends in person they act all nice. This happens a lot more often with women than men.

If you need to force people to come to your class by threatening them with pop quizzes, then 1. your lectures aren't that effective, or 2. you're lonely and don't get enough attention. One time after finishing a pop quiz I was this close to walking out of the class even though there was about 45 minutes left in the class just to make a statement. I didn't do it b/c it would've been a waste of going to class, but damn it would've felt good.

Yeah, I had a basic management class really early in the morning back in college (it was the only time slot left open that worked with the rest of my schedule) and I barely went partly because it was early, partly because I always had to spend that time practicing the stuff I hadn't learned for the class that followed (guitar). I actually liked the professor and he wasn't bad at lecturing, but I felt like I knew most of the stuff and his test were really straight forward. Plus he was native Chinese who had got his B.S. and MBA in the states then went back to China to run some factories and then decided that he wanted to teach...so he was practically FOB and it wasn't easy to understand him. Luckily for me I spent a summer abroad in China and didn't have much issue with understand his points, but no one in class could and they would dwell in the same couple questions for the entire period...so it was practically useless. Anyways, he eventually pulled me aside and told me he was concerned about my absences and that my grades might suffer because of his attendance policy. Well of course that wasn't the case because the deductions for absences was so small and I always smashed his exams. Yeah, forcing people to go to class is silly. I remember getting bitched at by teachers in HS about how you need to pay attention now and learn what you can and be thankful that they did 'this' and 'that' for you because one day you would be in college and the teacher wasn't going to know your name and they wouldn't make you go to class because you were suppose to be an adult and responsible for yourself. Then I get to college and it's like prehistoric kindergarten with roll call, naps, juice boxes and cookies you can stick your fingers through. WTF?!?

While on the subject of YouTube: anyone that makes an idiot out themselves in front of their shitty webcam hoping to get picked up by Tosh 2.0. That and probably desperate and annoying covers not identified as covers in the title.

Someone already mentioned this but high-school/college students handing out serious life/work advice on WSO.

So many things to do with Facebook, but most of them have been covered. I deactivated my account a little while ago for a reason I won't mention but part of that decision was fueled by an idea for an experiment. I'll get back to it some day though.

And the most important one: People either overinvested in their beliefs or just extremely close-minded that won't even think about considering the other persons point of view. And this goes for those people that put down others for the absolutely smallest things in the world that they don't agree with. I know I may be alone in that but for some reason even if I don't agree with someone I make an effort to see where that person is coming from, what factors are affecting his train of thought and whether or not his logic is based on false premises, etc.

People who take advantage of unemployment benefits. I have two friends who have been collecting benefits for over a year and have almost a year left of benefits left. They do not *try* or apply for real jobs (and pay lip service to this to continue collecting benefits). They do not take lower-paying jobs because it pays less than their benefits.

Unemployment is supposed to be a bridge between jobs for people who are actively trying to find a job. Not for people who want to live off the state for 2 years and do absolutely nothing with their day. One of the dudes has literally become nocturnal. The other one told me last night he was pissed off that he had to pay taxes on his unemployment benefits. I wanted to stab him in the eye with a pair of scissors.

No, if that was the case, I would have posted this 100 times in ten minutes on different forums. It looks pretty cool right...

When a superior asks me if I want to do something: FUCK YOU, no I don't. I want to be on an island sipping coconut booze and surfing. Just tell me to do it.

I told my boss no I don't want to do that once, he muttered "fuck who am I going to find to do this shit" as he walked away.

Music elitists

People who bitch "this show/song/sport sucks" just because of they heard a small synopsis about it, instead of actually taking the time to decide if they do like it or not

I agree with the one about managers asking, "Do you want to work on this?" Of course I don't, just tell me what it is and go away. Also when directors/vps staff you directly without going to the staffer. YOU COULDN'T TAKE 5 SECONDS TO CALL HIM UP??

Friday night staffings in general. Especially when they say, "I don't want you working all weekend on this...but i need it by Monday." Then on Monday, when they say, "DID U HAVE A GOOD WEEKEND??!?"

Also when the md/vp only cares about their project and then ask, "why the fuck is this not done" when you have four other projects from other md/vps due at the same time.

I hate skinny ties... I also hate skinny jeans. Put them together? and FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Skinny ties seem like the skinny jeans of ties. Just a stupid ass fashion statement that makes you look like a tard.

I mean look at this:
It looks like he has his belt hanging beneath his chin... though some ties that are slightly skinnier than normal ties while also being wider than "skinny" ties look pretty good

Looks better than this...

-when your boss asks you to archive a whole year worth of files, and not only zipping the whole thing... going in each and ever folder, zipping, then zip filing more.. then again and again, and then you realize you have deleted a portion of the year's archive cause you thought you already did it....

Thank god I copy pasted the entire thing before I started zip filing the shit.

-How slow the Payroll and HR is when it comes to extra compensation. It's as if you took the world and knocked it off its axis and expected to get paid... that's how HR acts when the time comes.

-If your supervisor is a complete bitch, and she is not even the one who is responsible for your shit... its your manager.

-When grads of other schools send out mass emails to all the new hires about a party on the weekend not including the school you went to because they assume you have a football game back at the school that same weekend.

-People who think New Jersey is the coolest place to be from... its not.

-New Jersey

-The entry level girls who act like absolute idiots for the first few months then start getting on your shit during conference presentations, asking very stupid questions that are absolutely irrelevant to the goal of the presentation.

-Girls who get 3.9 gpas and think they are so smart then try to compete with the Harvard football captain 4.0

-People from Penn who are quiet at first, then come out and say something that makes you want to push their face into their screen trading platform.

-Foreigners who don't understand how to be social at company outings.

-this list could go on forever.

Why the hate on skinny ties? Agreed that they look funny in black tie situations or with most full suits, but in modern suits or for a night out what on earth is so awful?

Things that piss me off:
- Chewing with your mouth open. If you've gotten past the age of 8 without mastering this basic life skill, you're doing it wrong.
- Driving in the left lane with cruise control. If you're in that lane, you should be passing people or just flying.
- Using an elevator for any floor under 5, maybe 3.
- Incessantly tapping your pen/pencil/desk/anything, if you have that much nervous energy, get laid, hit the gym, or use your brain so you're not constantly bothering everyone around you.
- You're =/= your
- They're =/= their =/= there

Most people do things to add days to their life. I do things to add life to my days.

i used to feel this way about dogs. once i was at a cafe in winter, one dog (the big furry one) was OK but had some sort or dog-hoodie on. his companion was a tiny hairless old dog. he was fucking shivering. so maybe those animal clothes do have a purpose.

i dont wear skinny ties but i think they're ok

You should've learned by now that balls are not to be shaved with an electric razor... trim down every other part of your nasty bits, then jump in the shower n smooth your sack

Music elitists

Oh man those people piss me off so much. Especially when they're arrogant enough to have deluded themselves into believing that it's some kind of objective fact grounded in the universe that whatever they like is good music and whatever they don't is bad music. Music is completely subjective.

-People who take my money at poker and claim it is skill/that they knew what they were doing, even though they just started playing and got 2 four of a kinds that night

Please tell me you're exaggerating. I've been playing my whole life and I've only hit a four of a kind once.

Quite a shame. I got a four of a kind a few weeks ago and don't know proper betting strategy so it was pretty much wasted.

You got the deck crippled anyways so unless villain's got a boat you won't get paid much. I flopped quads once with JJ in the hole and let the guy catch up to a boat on the river and managed to stack him. Check/call to the river and put out a feeler bet for 1/3 of the pot; if he raises you, shove.

1. People who try to sound more intelligent by:

a) using subjective pronouns when the objective case is required (e.g. "the prof gave mike and i such an unreasonable grade." It should read "mike and ME")

b) adding "st" to the end of words such as among, while, etc.

2. a political (or any, for that matter) argument between two people who are clearly entrenched in their positions, and have no intentions of actually questioning their beliefs, but simply want to prove the other wrong.

3. User interface designers at microsoft

4. Apple's cult following

5. being requested to follow a person/organization on twitter and facebook

6. Governor Christie's veto of NJ's online gambling bill

Incessantly tapping your pen/pencil/desk/anything, if you have that much nervous energy, get laid, hit the gym, or use your brain so you're not constantly bothering everyone around you.

Don't be so narrow minded. It's not just nervous energy. Get laid or hit the gym? What a douchebag thing to say. Some people can't help it. Sometimes I catch myself doing it and I stop so as not to annoy anyone but maybe I was annoying someone already, either way I didn't even realize I was doing it. And it's not nervous energy at all.
