Title: Pet Peeves
Post by: Viherminttu on March 13, 2007, 07:35:33 am
Rules:
You may post any number of your pet peeves
They must not contain the names of, or be directed at, other members of the forum. Be respectful.
Try not to be any more derrogatory than absolutely necessary. Remember stereotypes are rarely true.



My Pet Peeves:

Just blatantly rude people. I was shoved by an old man who pushed past me to get onto the bus first the other day. This is a perfect example of a rude person. I have no fucking time for them at all. Have some respect for people around you, and youll probably have a better time in life.

Pet stores. I fucking despise them. Pet shops with pimple faced kids that dont know anything about the animals theyre selling and caring for. At least have some basic animal care knowledge, empathy and try not to be too much of a fuckwit. Do not put female rats in with male rats. Its quite simple to tell the difference YOU FUCKING IDIOT. *deep breaths*

Stupid pet owners. These are those fucking morons that dont know how to walk a dog. Or how to close a gate. Or whatever. Just people that lack commonsense and usually end up with stupid dogs that drag them along the street or an animal splattered along the road because the fuckwits didnt close the gate properly. For the love of god, teach your dog obedience.

Emo attention whores. Man I hate these. Im surrounded by them at work. I work with this one emoboy with his hair in his face and just *twitch*.

Girls that think the sun rises and sets in their vagina. No, not everyone wants to fuck you. Get over it.

Guys that think the sun rises and sets in their penis. No, not everyone wants to be fucked by you. Come any clsoer to me and I will remove it.

Anyone that displays copious amounts of arrogance or ignorance. I hate both of them.

Anyone that assumes self-injury = emo/not doing it right/attention whore

Anyone thats as fat as my little finger that bitches about their weight.

Backstabbing friends. I hate those friends that are all sweetness and light to your face and then turn on you as soon as you turn away. I live with a few of these kinds of friends, and socialise with a few more. Its fucking disrespectful. As far as Im concerned, karma is going to bite them on the ass soon enough.

Dirty living space. My room is like a rubbish dump, but public areas of the house must be clean. Dishes should be done, floors should be clean, benches should be wiped, bins should be emptied. I hate having a messy house and having people come over. Its fucking embarassing.

People coming into my room uninvited. Its fucking irritating. This is my space. Get the fuck out before I throw a rat on you.


I think Im done for the moment. I shall return with more pet peeves.

Yeah. Such people annoy everyone, even other blatantly rude people.

They're not too bad. Just ignore them and they go away soon enough.

I'd like to see that. A sun rising from a girls vagina. I wouldn't want it to be a girl I cared for, though. Massive burns.

But yeah, girls like that are a pain in the ass. But as a guy, I believe the best way to handle them is to show them that they don't interest you more than any other girl in the room (even if they do).

And you'll love doing it.

Sorry.

I can agree to this. Those guys generally just come off as sleazy.

Though I can be an arrogant and stubborn bastard at times, I agree. At least I stir in copious amounts of not taking myself too seriously. Ignorance is something that's a lot worse, though.

Knock first. It's not very hard. Luckily, almost everyone I know has learnt this, except maybe my mother and brother. And I love both of them enough not to throw rats at them.

If I ever end up in Australia, I'll get you some plastic rats to throw at people who don't knock.

SPOILERS.
even the tiniest spoiler makes me angry.
i've been avoiding them very dilligently for FFXII for awhile... because everyone has played except me.
and I've run out of a room or put my hands over my ears and hummed intensely to drown it out MANY MANY times so far.
I hate even knowing the name of a spell I didn't get yet... or the name of a character.. or -any- detail I couldn't possibly know otherwise.

I absolutely despise hypocrites. Such as my family. Like... Walking through the grocery store and someone is looking for something on the shelf, my family would be all "AHEM. EXCUSE ME," even if there is room to get by and they shouldn't have to hurry up considering they were there first. But Nooooo. If my mom is looking for something on the shelf and someone actually has no room to get by, I'll be all "Mom.. You're in the way."  Her: "Too fucking bad. I was here first." D: I HATE IT! HATE IT IS WHAT I DO. So I'll just end up moving the cart since my mom won't. And GRAGH. Hypocrites suck.

Yes. A person assumes they know something (or knows very little), keeps it as fact, and then uses it as fact to generalize their knowledge of a subject, when, in reality, they don't know much of anything about what they say they do.

Title: Re: Pet Peeves
Post by: Torp v2.0 on March 17, 2007, 01:35:13 pm
Yeah, that's a thing that irritates me as well: Clothes sizes.

The problem is, there's no real standard. So I might end up needing anything from L to XXL. And despite the variance in actual size, most shops get few copies of their XXL-sized clothes. Which means that if I wander into a shop and find a cool tshirt, chances are they've got small sizes and their XL (the size I usually end up with) won't fit me.

Now, I am a bit overweight, I will admit that. I am 20kg above what I used to be 4-5 years ago (or at least I was this christmas), when I excersised regularly 4-6 times a week (and I haven't grown taller since that). I'm hoping to get rid of some of the excess weight by summer, mainly for health reasons (though looking even better doesn't hurt, of course ;D ). I don't exactly expect to get into size L. But the fact still remains that the relationship between marking and actual size is a completely random one. I've found size L clothes that were no smaller than they needed to be, and I've found shops where their XL sizes are so small, I'd have to drop 10kg to comfortably wear them. I've even found shops where some clothes of a given size fits, while other clothes (of the same kind, say a tshirt) are way too small. Now, obviously, the cut of the clothing comes into the picture sometimes, so some such variances are expected.
Title: Re: Pet Peeves
Post by: Viherminttu on March 17, 2007, 02:46:48 pm
ive found that too and its really irritating to go into 5 different stores and find that anything from a 14 to a 20+ will fit me (australian sizes). I even have something in a size 12 that will fit me and im technically a size 18. i wish there was some kind of set standard for clothing size. so that -all- stores had to have certain measurements for all their clothes. if that makes sense.
Title: Re: Pet Peeves

I despise people who are "overweight" and then rag on other people about being "overweight." It's kind of going back to the hypocrite, thing. But it angers me soooo much. It's like.. "Ohoohoho. I weight 10 lbs less than you, so I can bitch at you for being fat. Because I'm cool like that."

Also people who are full of themselves, but eh.. if they're not in my face showing it, then i don't have to pop their ego >:) and i have a good few times.

I have problems finding clothes as well. Combination of 191 cm and 110 kg ain't popular choice amongst clothes manufacturers, I guess. It's rare to find clothes that actually fit well. To make things worse I got feet of size 48. So it's hard to find decent clothes or shoes, especially shoes. So maybe one of my rare pet peeves is how today everyone ought to be made of same mold. Good thing is that most of men relatives are over 190 cm tall so there's always good hints where to buy certain clothes.

I have problems finding clothes as well. Combination of 191 cm and 110 kg ain't popular choice amongst clothes manufacturers, I guess. It's rare to find clothes that actually fit well. To make things worse I got feet of size 48. So it's hard to find decent clothes or shoes, especially shoes. So maybe one of my rare pet peeves is how today everyone ought to be made of same mold. Good thing is that most of men relatives are over 190 cm tall so there's always good hints where to buy certain clothes.

for me its 'what will fit' instead of 'whats hot'... i do get some nice clothes occassionally though. my feet are also a size womens 11-12 which doesnt go down well considering most shoe places sell up to size 9 and 10. :(

I also second the girly bitching. All through high school, and even out, I always had guys for friends because, gasp, they didnt bitch about each other or how _____ broke up with _____ or slept with _____ or what the latest fashion was. To be honest, I couldnt care less. Besides girls tend to be more 'delicate' when it comes to subject matter. Im sorry but if I want to laugh about some sexual innuendo, Ill do it. Unfortunately at my work Im on front counter, which means I work with all the women. Christian women. That saved themselves for marriage. Yes its true. We find it hard to find things in common.

It's weird, i prefer girls are friends but I'm not entirely sure why. Guess it's because they don't laugh at you for having some form of emotion.

I guess i'm not a believer.


Anyway one of mine is people talking behind other peoples back, boring and wastes time. Straight up is how it goes for me. The nitter natter of girl on girl bitching in schools and colleges and society is just, well its boring.

Also people who are full of themselves, but eh.. if they're not in my face showing it, then i don't have to pop their ego >:) and i have a good few times.

Generally im the nicest guy you'll ever meet though, well.. one of the nicest guys, irelands got a few. a few, thats 3 or more, me Visionthing and maybe nobby. And maybe somebody else.

I'm nice, and I live in Norn Iron.

That also happens to be one of my pet peeves. This place is pretty boring when you consider things. Portadown...I think we got into one of the editions of Crap Towns.

My most hated peeve is lazy/incompetent people who then go complaining to the boss because your doing your job properly means undoing their screwups.

Religious people who try to force their religion on others, and fundamentalists in general.

Seriously, this may be one of the things that pisses me off the most. The sheer arrogance of thinking that YOUR religion and viewpoints are right, and seriously believing that anyone who disagrees with your religion will burn in hell or whatever. Missionaries should be shot on sight IMO. "Hi, my name is George and your religious viewpoints are wrong, no matter what you say. Join the church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster or you will burn in hell for all eternity." Sure, their proselytizing may be motivated by a sense of compassion or doing good or whatever ("I shall go out and get people to join my religion so that they will avoid burning in hell"), but the sheer arrogance.... AAARGH! And don't even get me STARTED on people who use their religion as an excuse to commit hatecrimes, acts of terrorism, limit free speech etc...

Now that's not exactly what talhoffer meant, i think. The flyer is not their was of persuading or forcing you to do something you don't intend/want, but a flyer is meant to inform people of their beliefs and what they stand for. Most of the times it also has a adress or a phone number on it if you want to join. Its an entirely free choice.

Zealots... oh I hate zealots...

And ignorant people (not to be confused with stupid people, who are incapable of learning in the first place). Stupid people and ignorant people who insist on making my life miserable. People it's against the law for me to remove from the gene pool. Republicans. Democrats. Politicians in general.

Ok, some seriousness...

Ignorance.
Zealotry.
Generally holding the belief you are infallible. (We have a joke about one of the managers at work. We call her Queen Helene (Helene being her first name). Whenever someone makes a serious mistake, someone is always apt to make a comment about how Helene would NEVER do that...)
Refusing to admit you were wrong even after it is proved you WERE WRONG. (Helene again)
Arguing that you are right when you know nothing about what you're talking about and the person who does is in fact right and you're wrong. (and again)
Failing to comprehend a sarcastic comment when every attempt is made to make the sarcasm obvious short of saying out loud you are being sarcastic. (and once more)
On a subnote to that: I do not hate my sense of humor. I hate it when people fail to get my sense of humor. I love it to no end when people can't really tell whether I am being serious or sarcastic and actually have to think for a bit to figure it out... and STILL can't decide. If it's important, I'll tell 'em I was being sarcastic; a lot of the time when I AM sarcastic to the point of not being sure about it, it's a "shock value" comment, where I definitely do not WANT the person thinking I'm actually being serious about what I've just said.
Old peeves:
Entering a room through a closed door without obtaining permission from the person within. My dad has always been a horrible offender on this note. He would knock, and then open the door without waiting for any kind of reply. Eventually I got sick of it and started locking my door, which pissed him off because he could no longer open the door right away. It's his fault I obsessively lock doors to this day.
Also, I have a tendency to close my door when I'm not in the room. I only have one heating/cooling vent that works in my room, so in the Winter it gets cold and in the Summer it gets hot, especially if I leave the door open and venting to the un-aired hallway. My dad sometimes goes in (usually to scoop laundry off my floor) and doesn't close it again. We had a recent argument over that, where I asked him to be sure to close the door when he left. He asked me to rephrase my request with the word 'please'. I fired back, saying I shouldn't even have to ask in the first place, it should be common courtesy to leave the door as it was found. (btw, I'm 21... I can in no way, shape, or form afford to move out. I go to a community college and commute. I also work two jobs. I'm at one of them now.)

On another mini-topic. I used to have, and still to a point do (I haven't bought new pants in about a year because it's painful to go shopping for them) have problems finding clothes that fit in terms of pants and shorts. I like my jeans loose and baggy. I liked the brief period where it was actually kind of normal to wear jeans with legs big enough to hold about 10 of your own comfortably. Unfortunately I grew out of those pairs =(. I'm 6' 3", about 160 pounds (been a bit since I weighed myself, but given the recent loose feeling in my jeans, that's probably an overshot) and have a 36" inseam. Almost four feet of my body exists below the waist. And I'm thin. I typically wear 34" waist jeans for the looseness and because 34/36 actually exists whereas 32/36 (my actual size) is nigh on impossible to find oft times. For shorts, I HATE it when they end above my knee. HATE HATE HATE. So that's fun, because "below my knee" is at least a 1.5 foot inseam. I do however have one small upshot in liking "carpenter" style pants and shorts, both of which tend to run longer and baggier. And have those nice side pockets I can hide my wallet in. Shirts I'm fine. Size S would fit me "like a glove" but I prefer, again, loose and baggy, so I wear L. And yeah, I notice "L" varies significantly among different brands.

When I was younger I had lots of pet peeves. Nowadays I don't have them so much - situations come and go. I get angry and then cool down. There's two reasons why I've tried to work so that situation would develop to that direction.

First of all this is due basic mechanism of peeveness. First of all, peeves come from person's internal conflict. They come, because we try to force our values or morals to someone else. Someone does something that's against our own morals, it brings frustration and anxiety and we start to keep that certain someone as peeve when in the matter of fact the fault is in us. Another reason to someone to become peeve is that we reflect our own problems to someone else. Like if we are alone and hate that situation and see couples in love kissing somewhere passionately they become peeves - in the matter of fact they are  not the problem, problem is in us. Now... When you really think about this thing, projecting hate, disgust, jealousy and other similar feelings is not very productive way to deal with situation. Instead of hating someone it's more productive to think why this thing provokes such strong feelings. Usually there's some unsolved conflicts and problems that block our spiritual and mental growth. Dealing with those problems makes life easier and improves self knowledge. It also makes conflicts fewer thus progressing peace.

Now, there's also second reason. Second reason is that further I've lived more I had to have eaten my own shit. Most of us don't even notice that once in their life they might be sitting on that very same chair where those we blamed and accused while younger sat once. It's very uncomfortable chair because when one really sits in it and understands reasons and situations that lead to that one realizes how unjust those words and thoughts once were. Also I have noticed that when I've gotten myself into position when I've became one of my own peeves I've grown to see that I did not realize anything about that current affair when I blamed it as one of my peeves. More you have peeves more you will get into situations where you are doing exactly what disgusted you once.

All this has lead to situation where I try to minimize amount of my peeves because a) fault is in me b) eventually I might do exactly same thing.
