TWQ: Life's Irritants

This week, TWQ (The Weekend Question) looks at things that will annoy us....for some, that can be a long list!

What things in life really annoy you? List as many as you like.

My answers are:

1: Drivers who don't wait in a queue when traffic is converging into one lane, but drive right up, and expect to be let in.

2: Companies who charge extra when we book by credit card and call it 'handling'.

3: Patronising presenters on television who talk to us like we are idiots.

4: Drivers who park right outside my driveway and go off somewhere else.

5: Parents who let their children scream away at the top of their voices while out shopping and do nothing about it.

Now it's over to you...

Dishonesty of any kind riles me no end.

Those drivers who think they own the road.

Can't think of any more. Michele sent me to chk out on you.

Laura McIntyre said...

Hiya Michele sent me ....
i so agree with most of your moans although it is sometimes really hard to keep your children quiet when out (but i promise i do try my best)

gautami tripathy said...

Michele sent me back to tell you, it annoys me if I am missed.

And I was this time around..:(

An aside: Why am I ranting here?

Fab said...

Things I don't like:

People who are nice to you but turn on you behind your back.

Not signaling when changing lanes on the highway.

People who don't let others finish talking but burst right in there. Really annoying.

Not listening. (You can tell by their eyes - my collegue does that all the time.)

When tv does not coincide with what is mentioned in the tv-guide.

Indigo said...

Did my comment go through?

Michele sent me and today Roxette annoys me.

carli said...

Ooh, I'm with you on most of those. But replace #1 with, "Drivers who forget that pedestrians aren't psychic and don't know when you're about to turn, but don't care and never use a turn signal anyway, and when you point out to them that they have a turn signal, they give you the finger."

Lansy said...

At this moment, i have something really annoy me. My door suddenly opened at 4 am while I was sleeping. A noize waked me up. I locked the door inside. So it is pretty strange and annoys me a great deal still.

Bilbo said...

Michelle didn't send me. I get really annoyed by people who take enormously full shopping carts into the Express Lane, pretending they don't see the sign, then get belligerent when you point out the error. Also, people in checkout lines who wait until their entire order is rung up before remembering they need to pay and starting to look for their checkbook, credit card, etc. There are lots of others but these will do for now...

susan said...

Lies.

Taking the Lords name in vain.

Men in shops who treat women like they are daft.

The amount of mice my cats are bringing home and leaving on the driveway, patio, front door step!

Paperback Writer said...

Do you have three hours?

Darth Nepharia said...

People who don't think about anyone but themselves in *any* situation.

People who try to pass off their opinion as fact.

People who lie.

Women who wear clothing 10 years too young or 2 sizes too small for them (I don' think anyone but their husbands find that exposed belly or visible thong very attractive -- ew).

People who insist on driving while talking on their cell phones.

The Mistress of the Dark said...

those 100 lb wenches at the gym that make me feel like a cow.

people on cell phones that ignore the world going on around them...

Dare I go on?

vargas said...

1. Rude people.

2. People who constantly interrupt you when you're trying to talk.

3. People who like to get on the phone and talk about a whole lotta nothin'!

4. People who are mean to restaurant workers.

5. Condescension

6. Cell phones ringing in church. Or the movie theater.

7. When networks cancel a good tv I like and put on a reality tv show in its place!

dragonflyfilly said...

oh, do not get me started!

where do i begin,
~~well, right off the top of my head the one thing that really ticks me off are drivers who do not indicate (when i'm sitting at an intersection and the light turns green and there is a person just sort of sitting there - i think perhaps that he might be turning left, but he is not indicating grrrrr...

~~oh, and people who turn right into the left hand lane....sheesh!

~~Public speakers who chew gum while talking into a microphone

~~MOTORCYCLES with beefed up mufflers - they roar past me, and if my window is open i nearly jump out of my skin the noise is so loud.

~~stupid motor cyclists. Last week when i was going to visit my friend in Rosedale, i was just about to move from the left lane to the right lane. i checked over my shoulder, and just as i started to move right, i caught this figure, i swerved back into the left lane and this motorcyclist sped into the right lane. Fortunately i have excellent perifrial vision (spelling???) or else he would have been crumpled and my car would have been toast! GRRRRRRR

..you know what, i'm going to quit now...before i think about giving up driving! (hah hah)

dragonflyfilly said...

p.s. guess how much i scored on the Bloggers Addiction Test?

~~go to my crafts Blog, (i think)

cheers,
pj

Sim said...

I'm with you with the arrogant drivers who expect to be let in. Add to that those that don't signal.

Lies. People who talk over others or constantly interupt. Can I add Charley from BB8? I know she's gone but people with her attitude really gets my goat up. Those who have huge chips on their shoulders and expect the rest of the world to owe them.

Rant fini...

Jean-Luc Picard said...

I would add most of what you have already said to my list as well. I empathise with you all. I never realised there was so many things that annoyed me as well.

Sim, I couldn't stand Charley either!

Dragonflyfilly, I think I got you started there!

sage said...

Speed bumps, Capt. You don't have to worry about them in space, but they're a real pain down here on the 3rd planet. Here from Michele's this morning.

Amanda said...

I really get annoyed when people are late. What annoys me more is that I can't bring myself to say anything when they finally show up! Perhaps I should just plan to be late.

Plus I also really hate those drivers who don't line up. Makes me wish I could install a loudspeaker on my car so I can yell out.

Jessica said...

Thanks for stopping by from Michele's to say hello...you are a sight for sore eyes on a Sunday morning.

What makes me angry?
Bad driving...not signalling, cutting me off at the roundabout, I could go on and on...

Oh, and people who pass judgment without knowing the whole story...

Ellee said...

I agree with everything you say.

I find indifference really annoying, the lack of regard some people show others.

Captain Picard, I am up to my neck in studies, really badly behind. The boys are taking up so much time this hols and I have several more hospital visits with my eldest son.

Thank you for your latest comment, it would be appreciated if you could follow it up by voting as I mentioned. Do tell others too you feel may be interested.

Have a lovely summer, back soon. :-)

Bob-kat said...

Oh yes, I am with you on the last one. Other things that annoy me are bad manners (or lack of manners) and people that don't indicate and can't use a roundabout properly, oh and htose drivers that cut you up and then give you a mouthful as if you did something wrong!

Michele sent me to have a rant! :)

Lavender said...

All of the above, PLUS everything else!
(Must be time for me to go to bed, eh?)

Mike said...

People who drive slow in the left hand lane on the freeway.

People who let their dogs bark alot in the middle of the night.

People who talk during the movie at the theater.

Here from michele's

kenju said...

Your #1 is one of my pet peeves too. I don't let them in unless I have to.

I also hate people who play their car radios so loudly that my car shakes at stoplights and I feel their bass beating in my chest!!

Michele sent me!

yellojkt said...

These are a lot of great peeves. My biggest annoyance is thoughtless drivers like the ones that make right turns from the left lane (adjust as necessary for British drivers).

Random Magus said...

I have sooo many
1. People who cut queues
2. who like to take credit for other people's work
3. Spoilt kids
4. People who are arrogant
5. Show offs
6. Back stabbers
... the list goes on and on

Linda said...

I'd have to say that all of those are spot on and you can add on -

People who pull in front of you when there is no one behind you.

Airlines that charge outrageous unaccompanied minor fees.

The fact that ice cream is no longer sold in half-gallon containers but ridiculously small boxes that you can barely get four good-sized servings out of!

belle said...

Michele didn't send me but I agree with all those, especially the first - I love keeping up close to the car in front and not letting them in!

Others for me are:
stupid mobile rings
computers that don't do what you tell them to do
weeds that grow in my flower beds

gautami tripathy said...

Sometimes I annoy myself..

Michele sent me here to tell you that.

Ernie said...

Well, of course, when I go to a lounge or liquor store and can't get any Blue Beaver Beer, I get really annoyed. I also find it just mildly annoying that Michelle never sends me here.

Jean-Luc Picard said...

We've all had a good vent on this list! It goes to show that when we put them together, the main cause tends to be inconsideration by other people.

Jaime said...

Your #1 is mine as well!!

Lavender said...

Oh yes! I loathe those mongrels in #1 - they bring the agro out of me big time! Thats a good one Captain!

eastcoastlife said...

Most of what's mentioned here irritate me too. grrr..... it is not a nice world we live in.

Lois Grebowski said...

Amen on those peeves! Amen! #s 1 and 5 especially!
