When people call their device by name when it's an Apple product.

"Did you call him on your iPhone?"

"I have that app on my iPhone too!"

"I have that song on my iPod!"

Reality shows- They are causing the demise of good shows, i.e. My Name Is Earl, The Unit, Terminator The Sarah Connor Chronicles...etc.
Twilight- Glittery vampires? I know that vampires have always had a weird sex appeal about them, but the series is turning them into Remo's (******ed homos)
North Dakota- Snow in May? 9 months of weather that range from negatives to barely 70.
South Park- Love the show, but the seasons are getting shorter. I won't be surprised if next seasons premiere is also the finale.
The Kardashians- I hate celeb gossip unless it's poignant, but this family tops it.
Gyms- I love to work out, and fortunately my job has it's own gym type room that I can use three days a week, but when I do go to the gym it's unpleasant. Not enough equipment, loud body builders who are "better" than everyone else, that one guy who hogs the machine you need to use forever.... you catch my drift.
Car dealerships- I'm only 22 and my credit is in the middle. I didn't start establishing credit until 2 years ago, but car dealerships are only willing to help those with a lot of money and great credit. I'm in the military, so if I don't pay I get in trouble, so take the chance on me already.
And finally, LOL- I can tolerate when people type it sometimes, but I don't always need to know somethings so funny you laughed out loud. And when people actually say it instead of laughing, it makes you seem pompous. Kind of like those people who had flip phones when they were novel and snapped them shut really loud just so you would take notice.

Well, that feels better.

I'm not being hypocritical. This is but once
But seriously don't you think they should shut up occasionally?

didnt read through the entire thread but stupid drivers. and slow drivers. esp slow drivers in the very far left lane. dont go 5 under the speed limit, move the %*(! outta the way. Pissed that lane splitting wasnt approved here, oh well, its only illegal if you get caught, and its not considered running from the police if you dont make eye contact.

kidding of course... <---disclaimer

people who complain all the time about crap that they can change but are too lazy to do it. Example - if you hate your job then send out resumes rather than tell me that you hate your job and the people you work with.

Do you ask them if their calls are randomly dropped and the screen yellowing on their 'oh so wonderful' phone?

I agree - I have no problem if someone has the iPhone, until they act like an asshat.

What really grinds me is threads that are about and title "What really grinds your gears"

I kid I kid.

Funny how I never seen this thread. Couldn't come at a better time today.

These are the top 10 things that grinds my gears...
1-Bluetooth/Headsets wearers
People who are having one hell of a loud conversation to another person with their headset walking down the street or an elevator. First they look crazy and second, I don't want to hear about what you did to the women last night or what size shoes you want.

2-Work
Working for the City of New York. It pisses me off that you really can't take a day off cause no one does your work. You come back and the work is still there. Yet when they go on vacation, you take up the slack.

3-Android Forums
It pisses me off that this place is so friendly and addictive that I see myself on it all day from my laptop next to my work PC and trying everything in the book to make it look like I am doing work when I'm actually working on AF.

4-School Buses
This might piss off some, but in NYC, there is no freaking need for school buses. Take mass transit. There are more school buses than buses, stopping at every other corner picking up kids (who are never freaking ready) tying up traffic for blocks. In my day, we walked to school or the parents drove us.

5-Taxicabs
Really, seriously, in any Metropolitan city especially NYC. They complain about traffic but if you ever drive in Manhattan, you can actually count more than 7-10 yellow cabs in any block. Take the train/bus damnit. These same cabs are no where to be found outside of Manhattan except the airports. WTF?

6-My Workplace IT dept.
What a bunch of numbnuts. Still working on ancient Windows XP, they rather you spend thousands on a new PC instead of saving money installing more memory. Working on Office 2003 when all my VBA apps/financial reports need 2007. People come to me to help them with their PC/App problems instead. Not that I mind, but I am too busy working on AF.

7-People wearing inappropriate clothing.
Usually its kids/teenagers, but I've also seen a few grownups doing it. It people wearing their jeans halfway down their butt. usually showing off their underwear or the crack of their ass. They call it a fashion statement, I call it stupidity. If they really knew the true meaning of what it was for, I am sure they would not care to continue to do it. Idiots.

8-The 5 day work week/vacation time.
Really? Seriously? I would rather work an hour and a half longer with a shorter lunch from Mon thru Thur and get Friday off to have a three day weekend. (or it can also be Tue thru Fri and have Monday off.) We in the USA work too damn hard and much and don't take enough time to unwind. Europe gives you a month or more. Two weeks is not enough for most folks. (I actually have 3 weeks due to my job, but most don't).

9-Messy inconsiderate drivers/eaters
I have a corner house. and no matter what, people end up coming off the main drag two blocks away and park on my corner to eat their crap and then throw their garbage out into the street when they leave.

10-Use of inappropriate words out in the open
It drives me nuts when I see people regardless of race, color etc saying the N word. Be it in conversation or in song. Wrong wrong wrong. The same thing for any other inappropriate use of the words gay, re-****, etc.

TS

Maybe a Scotland specific one, but Orange Walks. Not that I object to them walking, each to their own and all that jazz... but there was one today in Wishaw that was TEN THOUSAND strong... and it affected traffic and travelling all over South Lanarkshire for me and my family today. Hellish.

I've been waiting for a Droid for about a year now, and since Verizon dropped their VIP program, I had to wait until today. I go into Verizon to find out the HTC Incredible was originally supposed to be in stores around June 7, and it's July 11. They HOPE to ship by August 9th.

1 - People who say "hence why" or "return / reply back". I have no idea where this came from but it's become so common in the last year or so. While I'm on the subject, the general standards of literacy here in England. I'm sure that there are people in other countries who have English as a second or third language who will have a better grasp of it than people who were born here, and that's something that the nation should be ashamed of.

2 - Ice cream vans. When I'm sitting in my garden with a book on a summer afternoon, I do not want to be subjected to the first 10 seconds of the "Match of the Day" theme tune every two minutes. I wish they'd ban the ruddy things.

I sound like such a curmudgeon!

Grammar Police - I can understand if someone is way off in left field or typing in Ebonics but when you make it a huge issue to point out a simple grammatical error when you know full well what that person is trying to convey, you come off as being a jackazz. It makes it even worse when you back door that with your own grammatical errors.

Fantasy Baseball Office Guy - I go to work just like you do and no I do not give a rat's azz about the Astro's bullpen era, nor do I care that your lead-off man is hurt for the rest of the year and that you're looking for a replacement. It is not my job to listen to you ramble on about your team when you know damn well I could care less about Baseball. Come talk to me when Football season starts

Ugly Girlfriends (wingchicks) - Why is it that you have to hate on me when I approach your girl. Is it because I didn't give you the time of day? Before you left the house, you knew what your role was to a tee but now that it's a reality, you refuse to play it. Step to the back, stop cockblocking and maybe just maybe, you can get your shine on too.

I have a few more but these are the most egregious.

Oh I totally agree... another forum I go on has the worst example of that, Captain Pedant we all call him. He seems to revel in it...

- People too lazy to help you help them. I could retire if I got a dollar every time somebody sent me a work order with not even close to enough information. Just what exactly am I supposed to do with "I'm in a different office today and my email is broken". Gee, do you think it might be a good idea to give me the phone number at the desk your using, or at least tell me which office so I could somehow track you down?

- Morons that don't trust phones to actually transmit their voice. I'm sure most of you know at least one person like this. They usually speak at a normal volume, but as soon as they're on the phone they start bellowing into it. Not only does it annoy everyone around them, but blows out the eardrums of the poor guy on the other end of the call. One person at my work is so bad that I know when somebody 3 cubicles over is on the phone with them; I can hear both ends of the conversation even when it's not on speaker.

- People with a total lack of respect for anyone around them. This especially includes morons texting and talking on the phone during a movie, people who refuse to take their screaming children outside at restaurants, and who think the world is their crotchfruit's playground.

- Drivers that treat actually driving their car as the least important thing they are doing at the moment. Never mind that they're swerving all over the freeway, their little snowflake needs you to hand them their baggie of cheerios now.

If your workplace is anything like mine, you should probably revise that to "IT management / management in general". I'm in IT and myself and the rest of the people that actually do the work are usually thrilled when MS announces they're no longer going to support a product because that's often the only motivation to upgrade that works on managers. A couple of years ago when MS finally ended support for Office 2000 we tried desperately to get them to let us upgrade everyone to 2007. Nope, they were afraid that people would freak out over the ribbon bar and only let us upgrade to 2003. Never mind that many of the users were already using 2007 at home, and that the ones that freak out over changes will do so no matter how minor they are. Honest to god I actually had somebody once ask me how to create a new email because when upgraded Groupwise the "new mail" button got a slight 3D look to it. They saw the slightly changed look and decided nothing they knew would work anymore.

My school just inserted another huge tuition & fees hike (T&F). The 2009 - 2010 T&F was $4,410 for the entire year. Normally, as in the past FOREVER, the tuition has general risen about 5%, but never more. This year, the tuition hiked up about 9 - 10% ($4,807). Ok, well, cool. That sucks, but the budget was cut but tens of millions of dollars. I was fine, I made plans around it, no big deal.

YESTERDAY, I received my eBill from the school. What's the T&F on my bill? $5,138! A 16% increase in T&F!? TOTALLY unheard of. I already didn't get enough from the school, even though I'm in their bottom 2% of neediest students (EFC of 0, gross income of like $21K-ish). RIDICULOUS. I already had to take out a private loan of $3,000 yesterday just to cover everything, now they throw on more.

I checked their financial aid site, sure enough they conveniently updated it with the new T&F and also a big huge note in bold about how wait times are going to increase because all the FA office staff is working on a project of "trying" to re-appropriate grants, loans and scholarships. Rifuckingdiculous. Not an e-mail, automated call, or anything. I'm glad I checked my bill, because I never would've known.

yeah.. sucks brah'. Mine is $3900 every quarter here at UCLA, it just went up for us too. then parking is $100 per month, rent is $1000 per month, then food. I'm at around $7500 every 3 months for school. or about $23k for the year not including summer session. My roomie is an out of state, he pays 6000 per quarter for tuition alone.

Im pissed about the damn iPhone 4, ive been an iPhone user since day one, and this death grip is driving me frickin' nuts, and the fact that Apple handled it so immaturely.

I will be returning my THIRD iP4 tomorrow for a Samsung Galaxy S, thanks to some advice from you friendly guys on the forum.

F**K YOU APPLE.

Number one on my list right now? Being sick at work! Which I am. Right. Now. Blugh.

I hate:
- People that ask questions during a movie. "OMG, what happened?" "Who's that?" "Why did they go there?" "She said WHAT?" ERGH.
- Ego trips. Why do people NEED to be right all the time? I can understand stroking your ego from time to time, and boasting your knowledge on a subject, but to walk around with this giant, super-inflated ego? ALL THE TIME? What an immense turn off.
- How stupid watching reality TV shows make me. I REALLY hate the fact that I get sucked in on lazy days off... when I could be doing something WAY more productive.
- Really dumb tourists. When you go on vacation, do you just forget to pack your common sense? WHY???

I've got more, but i'm too stuffed up to remember.

The Andro 2.1 update for cliq & cliq xt update (which is *hoped, not scheduled* for august) is a fraud. Marketing execs are keeping you in suspense until you finally get fed up and abandon your obsolete device that you wasted your money on to buy a new device featuring the latest android versions.

I am EXTREMELY AND THOROUGHLY disgusted with Motorola and will NEVER purchase a moto device....EVER. I'll stick with HTC from this day forward. Motorola has shown only disinterest in the satisfaction of their customers and incompetence in their own field. What other company releases a device with a retro-version of it's respective OS and the seems to have absolutely ZERO ability to update said device? NONE. Samsung has had a few hang ups, BUT NOT FOR A FREAKING YEAR!

I'm done with moto, but it pains me to admit that very few people share my disdain or my disinterest in continuing business with such an incompetent company.

I hate that too. The part that I hate is when people decide to show up to work sick and spread their germs all over the place. Stay home where you'll get better faster and leave the rest of us with better odds of avoiding getting sick in the first place!

Here is just a small list of things that makes me want to push someone down the stairs:

1. Left lane a-holes! it is called the passing lane for a reason and there are signs all over our nations highways that state "Keep Right Except to Pass" and "Slower Traffic Keep Right". These as chance would have it are not suggestions. I don't care if I am going 90mph in the left lane, if the car behind me is going faster I will move over! that's what you are supposed to do!! You're not supposed to hang out in the left lane and go under the speed limit! If you look in your rearview and there is a line of cars 1/2 mile long behind you...YOU are in fact an A-Hole!!! MD is the worst state for this BTW followed closely in second place by NY!

And P.S. if I am in the left lane and you are in the middle lane and I am clearly going faster than you yet you move over in front of me anyway and do not accelerate, it is not actually you who gets to give me the finger genius...you cut me off!!! Think about it!!!

2. Woot! Not the website that sells overstocks and refurbs at a reduced price, but the phrase "woot"! Really??? Do we not have enough words to express joy, happiness or excitement that we need to create more?? Enough!!!

3. Skinny Jeans on people who shouldn't wear them! If you button these pants and it looks like you have an innertube under your shirt??? CHANGE YOUR CLOTHES!!! Wear something that fits!!!

4. Belly shirts on people who shouldn't wear them!! See #3!!!

5. People who refuse to lower their window when at a drive through or toll!! What is with this phenomenon?? Is it really easier to drive a little bit passed the window and open your door and try to reach over it or back a little?? WTF ARE YOU DOING?????? Lower the window, that's what it is there for!!!

6. People in the airport talking so loud either via bluetooth or straight into the phone!! We get it, you're a big shot!!! Nobody cares about your quarterly reports, nobody cares that you are going to a Bulls game when we land in Chicago and nobody cares (no matter how cute YOU think it is) what your damn kid did!!!!

7. People who STILL don't know which side of the car their gas tank is on!! REALLY?? Look at the gas gauge people...there's an arrow that tells you if you can't remember which side its on!! Holy S**T!!!

8. People who do not discipline their kids obnoxious, nasty behavior!! No I do not have kids, but common sense says that you are establishing a pattern of behavior with no fear of consequence...for the future read: no friends, discipline problem in school, the office jerk, etc...

9. The NJ Devils!!!

10. Deli's who cut their meat too thick to put on my sandwich!! I have all my teeth and they work...if I need to bite down and pull the sandwich out of my mouth, you probably should have sliced the meat thinner!! ASS!!!


Thanks!!

You know what grinds my gears? Asians, Indians, or old people that drives 35 on the highway when it says on the sign 65 and then I would either have to tail gate them to make them drive faster or cut them. I know, that was very stereotypical, and hypocritical since I too am Asian but thats what I face everyday when i'm on the road.

1. My girlfriend refuses to send me topless pictures even though I've seen her topless many, many times.

2. Unnecessary Apple hate. It really makes no sense and seems to be reserved only for those who can't afford Apple products. There's the honest detractors who find that PCs, Android phones, etc. etc do more for what they need than an Apple product. But then there's the people who scream "APPLE SUX! IFAIL!" and make no other contributions other than the fact that Steve Jobs is evil. If you don't like a product, don't buy it. That easy.

3. Having said that, I hate Apple stores. Want to walk into one room that contains more pretentious douche bags than your local indie film festival? Go to an Apple store. And have they ever heard of these magical things called COUNTERS??

4. Owen Wilson's voice. It pisses me off so much that I can barely stand to watch any movie that he is in.

5. Last summer I was able to lose 60 pounds with no effort in about 4 months. Now I've barely been able to lose 5 in the last 5 weeks with maximum attention payed to it.

6. The fact that I cannot find a job before school starts.

7. The fact that my sister is 22, unemployed, dropped out of community college and does nothing all day and can't get a job before death starts.
