Default This annoys me - What annoys you?

I thought maybe we could set up a thread where we can spew our guts at things.
Things that may not be worthy of a whole thread.
Maybe you'll agree wholeheartedly or disagree completely.

The first thing I thought of was announcers on tv that talk over the end credits. I hate that.
I found this clip of soapbox where he more eloquently express these views than I ever could. Of course my favourite type of programme is perhaps not the same.

Now, what is it that really annoys you?
If you think it's something that will be discussed at length then maybe you should do it as a separate thread.

An 'I hate' thread? Count me in:

Floppy toast
Radio static
Will Ferrell
Apple
People who buy Apple
People who associate with people who buy Apple
Guys that complain about hangovers
Girls with pigtails
Girl scout cookies
Guys that wear hats without a rim
Girls that wear hats with rims
People that go around barefoot
Creepy 80's movies (like 16 candles or back to the future)
Well done meat
People who order well done meat
People who associate with people who order well done meat
When people whine 'why can't you just support me' when you offer the tiniest of constructive criticisms.
Girls with too long hair
Guys with too long fingernails
Fox news
Evangelicals
Environmentalists
Vegans

To be continued...

What annoys me is simple,
Kids too young for a pimple,
Those who peak like an ancient tome,
And those who never speak in poem.


(Oh, and so, so many more things.
But too many rhymes...
You know what that brings.)

As someone who has played all three sports, I can tell you that I took many more brutal hits playing Am. Football than I did playing rugby or soccer. I did have to be in much better shape, endurance wise, for soccer and rugby. The difference is all in technique. Rugby is much more technical in tackling than Am. Football because you don't have the same protection. This causes tackling in Am. Football to be much more powerful. I'm not saying that it doesn't happen in rugby, but it's not as prevalent.

I remember my first scrum. I am 6'2" and at the time went around 205. The guy I posted against on the other team found out it was my first game and as we tied in for the scrum, he says (in a thick scottish accent) "a scrum virgin! Allow me to welcome you!" and he starts bashing me in the ear with his head. I never had more fun playing a sport...because we "played.". It was like being a kid again. I had a blast.

I'm going to pile on, pointing out that - partly because of stopping and realigning between each play - a major portion of why they wear pads in American Football is because if they didn't, they would die.

in airports and train stations, people with big luggage, getting off escalators take one step, park their luggage IN THE MIDDLE of the escalator track and stare around, mouths agape. and then get annoyed at me for having to climb over their mountain of goddamn luggage to in order to get off the escalator.

using smilies and/or "lol" to "remedy" a passive-aggressive and/or attention seeking statement. e.g. "Everbody hates me, lol. Even the lightbulb which the hubby was supposed to fix last week "

males (generally age 13-30) with obviously much too much time to take care of their "gangsta" appearance, getting down stairs slower than snails and taking up the ENTIRE width of the stairway.

la-z stoopid peepz tat cant typ rite, yanno?
