What kinds of things get on your nerves?
I can't think of a good signature.

Only 2 things, surprisingly.

>When my mom would put bread in the freezer for later use because it would defrost and be extremely soggy and the texture would change if you toasted it. It was a LOT dryer.

>When people drive across empty spaces in parking lots. If it's not illegal, it should be. This is the only thing that gives me road rage because I've almost been hit a few times.

1. When my door is closed and my parents come in the room and go back out without closing the door.
2. When people walk in front of me very slowly and I have no clear paths to pass them.
3. When my mom opens the windows during winter.
4. When I plug my charger to my phone for the night and I wake up in the morning to realize that it hasn't been charging at all.
5. When I'm outside waiting for the bus and it's -20°C and it comes late.

These are the only things that come to my mind right now.

Things that get on my nerves are:

Songs that get stuck in your head easily. Like "Whip My Hair" or "Baby".

Any movie that is animated by DreamWorks (I was forced to watch Despicable Me but that was a good movie) becuase they're probably to childish my age.

And finally when my beagle won't stop howling, like when someone arrives at our front doorstep or when he sees another dog out there.
Ask a question, or make a suggestion of what I can do on

Oh, mother of mercy, let me count the things that get on my nerves:

- Gun control debates (both sides)
- People on both sides of the debates putting words into the mouths of 200+ year old corpses.
- Abortion debates (again, both sides)
- Religion
- People who drive slow in the left lane
- People who drive slow in the right lane
- People who drive slow on the highway, PERIOD.
- People who hold up traffic (these are usually the same people who do the above three things)
- Fox News
- Democrats
- Republicans
- Pop music
- People not liking it when I swear.
- People thinking nu-metal, metalcore, deathcore are actual metal.
- People who relate metal to "screaming."
- People who relate metal to "screamo" (they're not the same genre, so knock it off)
- Skyrim "Arrow-in-the-knee" jokes.
- Lack of record stores in any living area
- Lack of porn stores in any living area
- Vegan nazis
- The people who made the Scary Movie franchise
- The War on Terror
- When I move to let someone through, s/he moves to the mirror side so we're STILL blocking each other.
- People who begin stating their opinion with "well, in my opinion." Seriously, we already know it's your opinion based on the fact that you typed it or it came out of that gaping hole you call your mouth.
- People being taller than me
- People having whiter teeth than me.
- People who wear their pants down to near their ankles or wear their caps sideways or backwards
- People who laugh awkwardly
- People who tell me to calm down (I'll "calm down" when you or the world stops doing things that annoy me)
- Pious Europeans/Canadians/Asians/Whatever (yeah, my country has it's problems. So does yours)
- Claiming the Star Wars prequels were better than the original trilogy
- Claiming Ocarina of Time is anything but the best Zelda game ever. (Okay, I'm kidding, this one only gets me 25% annoyed)
- Claiming there was only [insert number of generations of Pokemon here] generation(s) of Pokemon and the rest don't exist.
- Neo-nazis
- Feminist nazis
- Crappy songs that somehow get stuck in my head.
- Waiting in line
- Having to wait in line because someone is holding it up.
- Being put on hold for a long time
- People showing off their iPhone apps or ringtones (I don't care, so stop it)
- People who ask me if I think they're ugly/fat (what do you want me to say? "Yes"?)
- When my cats fight.
- Anything by Dreamworks
- Disney continually relying on Pixar to remain decent.

I could go on forever, so I'll stop right here.
The biggest flaw with voluntaryism is its inefficiency, caused by the basic condition of human selfishness.

People messing with my stuff. I have my stuff where I want it, and I have it where I want and I know where it is. So do not move my stuff around to satisfy your anal retentive OCD neat freak impluses. And if you don't have my permission to touch my stuff, don't do it.

I don't get annoyed by very much. In fact, I'm the calmest person I know. I am kind to everyone, understanding and respectful and fair, that is the kind of person I make my best effort to be at every moment of every day. So I must admit there are times when I see others not being kind or fair and I fail to be understanding. Instead, I get angry that people are needlessly polluting the air with negativity, and I let it ruin my day. That's my own fault. I'm working on that.

Also have to admit that I get frustrated at people driving slow in the rain. I'm not talking about a storm, here. It's just some damn light rain, we're not driving around the edge of an icy cliff. Go the speed limit.

One of the biggest things that gets on my nerves are narrow-minded people. Basically it's either their way or no way, which makes it very hard to get things done or even have a simple conversation sometimes.

The other one that's been really bugging me lately is people with loud music on the bus. Granted, I'm the kind of guy that listens to my iPod on the lowest volume possible without it being mute, but there's no reason I should be able to hear your music through your headphones from the other end of the bus.

I think stubbornness bugs me more than anything else. I hate it when people's worldview is made of rubber and anything that contradicts it just bounces off. It's very frustrating to be around, and I've been around it a bit lately lol

When people barge into a room without knocking, this tends to be a problem with my sisters, evidently they don't believe in knocking.
People that are really lazy and wont do things themselves
People that don't clean up their messes. Im not cleaning up after you, you make a mess, you clean it up.
People that make fun of people that have any physical disability or are physically different than others some way, I find this extremely rude.
Kids that scream loudly in stores and parents that refuse to take the child outside or even try to control their children.
Nosy people
People that only care about money
People that drive like maniacs

I could go on and on, but I'll end the list here.

Bratty kids
People who unplug simple appliances (microwave) in a shared house because it uses a miniscule amount of electricity, and they're trying to "conserve the earth", meanwhile they leave their PC on all night... >_> basically hypocrites too.
Whistling (dont know why, I can't stand it)
Dirty toilets/ people who don't flush or wipe the seat.
Being on hold on the phone..

Uhh.. can't think of any more right now.

There are tons of things that piss me off, but the only things that come to mind are
a. People making a big deal about something I don't consider to be that big of a deal.
b. People who don't know how to drive or the laws of driving.
c. When someone opens my door when it's completely closed and doesn't close it on the way out. OR WORSE when someone closes it, but leaves that crack where it's not actually closed. UGH!! That alone makes me want to dropkick someone right in the mouth.

There's quite a few things that annoy the life out me so I'll name only a few
People that NEVER SHUT UP, I mean don't get me wrong, I can listen but when they talk for hours straight and won't let you get a word in edge-wise, I zone out xD
Grammar. I mean I can handle some things like smilies xD or texting most of the time (unless they literally don't know the word it's like, seriously?) My first language was Spanish but even I can speak and spell English better than some of my classmates xD
People who don't care for anything, full apathy. I mean, people need to realize that although school is a pain in the arse cutting into your time at home with homework that it's still necessary, I'm ok with knowing that 1+1=2 rather than staying at home playing video games you wouldn't even understand at times, had school not helped you develop your skills. Drugs, alcohol, etc. marijuana might have less of a mental effect than a cigarette but the mental effect can leave you doing wrong things, you don't jump off a cliff when you're smoking a cigarette, but you can if you're drunk. Anyways, I could rant forever but I'll stop here. xD
