The sound of metal scraping on concrete (ie construction equipment)
People that light up a smoke on the phone while getting techsupport (I get back at them, I eat chips and carrots with out turning off my mic)
Seeing improper care of animals in petstores.
When customers call me for help and then put me on hold (often they get disconnected when they do that).
Callers that argue about what they need to do to fix their printer, they called ME for help. If they know what the fix is why did they bother calling in the first place?
Micromanagement (one of my supervisors does this @ work, if anyone were to cause me to go postal she would)

I've got more but those are off the top of my head.

- Children.

- Net Speak. I mean come hard is it to say 'your' or 'you're' instead of UR. It's lazy, and incredibly hard to read.

- People who try so hard to be different, and despise those who are not, that they become what they hate. They never notice or own up to that either.

Like many students, I must work to pay tuition. This has resulted in me working on and off in the fish and reptile departments of two different stores. There are a couple of things I hate above all others.

- Many people want to put a fish that gets large into too small of a tank. I tell them they should not. 95% of people respond with the logic that 'fish only grow to the size of their tank!'
WHERE has this been published?! It is HORRIBLE for the fish. Stunted growth, premature death, or a fish that grows more slowly and winds up in cramped quarters. Would they put a wolfhound puppy into a tiny crate hoping it would stay smaller?

- The tags under the tanks that can slide out. They usually list the fish and the price. Pray to your god(s) if I catch you sliding them out.

- Kids and ADULTS baning on the aquariums. See how the animals flee? It is because they are scared, you raging moron.

- People who whine about this that and the other thing being cheaper and better at that other place. GO THERE THEN!

I am done for now.
I am highly prized for my meat. :eb:

OMFG, do I relate to this one. I'm honestly considering quitting my software testing job to work at fricken Chapters or Home Depot or something because of the micromanagement here. The worst part is, the people making decisions and barking orders at me around here are the people LEAST QUALIFIED TO BE DOING SO.

I swear, I could fricken kill them.

I have a ton of them, but I will just list a few:

-people who complain about bad spelling and grammar, but misspell words in their own post complaining about bad spelling and grammar

-people who refer to soda as pop (pop is either a verb as in "please pop this balloon" or an adjective as in "pop music")


-people who leave cabinet doors open

-repeating myself to people who don't pay attention

-scammers and rip offs

-know-it-alls with a superiority complex

The list could go on and on, and don't even get me started on the way most people drive!
"To truly rescue an animal one has to provide long-term care that guarantees the animal's security for its natural life, because rescuing is more than removing an animal from a bad situation. Rescue involves restoring and preserving the animal's dignity for its natural life without stress, and this includes conserving the species as a whole for generations to come."

People who wait for the yeild signs to turn green (it's a YEILD sign people.... you DON'T HAVE TO STOP!) <---every f-ing day on the way to work.... every f-ing day.....

People who don't understand the concept of a four way stop. Or a dedicated turning lane.

People who drive 30km EVERYWHERE

People who stop and talk in the middle of busy, narrow hallways (or in malls - the stopping in front of you thing like someone else said, or just in the way... you just wanna smack them in the back of the head.... hard.... "why is it always especially at Wal-Mart???")

When people talk to me when I'm on the phone (I can only participate in one conversation at a time! just cause <i>you</i> can't hear the person on the other end of the phone....)

SCREAMING (especially little kids!)

People at work who get mad at the staff when we don't have exactly what they want exactly this minute (sorry, I can't make it magically appear for you).... ESPECIALLY when they need it because "we're leaving on vacation tomorrow and Muffy needs a dog tag!" It's called planning people!!

People who have to write "you too" as U 2, "later" as L8er, etc ALL THE TIME, <b>ESPECIALLY</b> in really long posts or pages! It's like reading greek after awhile....

People with crappy a** cars and too much bass - dude, i can't hear anything abouve the sound of your car trying to vibrate itself into little rusty pieces....

Hairballs. 'Nuff said.

The construction that keeps changing intersections around my route to work BUT NEVER FIXES THE POTHOLES ON MY STREET.

People that buy parrots and then realize they've adopted a 2 year old for 90 years. RESEARCH people, RESEARCH!! (we have the sweetest cockatoo at work right now, looking for her 3rd home )

People who send their kids to the pet store to get them out of their hair.... we are not a babysitting service, we cannot do our jobs with kids glued to our elbows asking stupid questions!

The sound my sliding glass cage doors make when sand gets in the tracks.... yarg....

Laser pointers in movies....

POP-UPS! Just one isn't too bad.... the 3 or more sites really p*ss me off!

General ignorance/stupidity/closemindedness/rudeness.

LOVEBIRDS! I cannot stand lovebirds! I spend a good portion of my day with the birdies at work, and that high pitched incessent screaming drives me crazy.....

People that not only think fish grow to the size of their tank, but that REPTILES grow to the size of their cage!! Ummm, what?? Not true for fish, and even if it was, it wouldn't transfer over! Not just different species, different classes even!

People that tell me how much cheaper 'x' is in the nearest big city... okay, you drive down there, get it, and drive back. How much cheaper was it again?

And an odd one.... bacon in plastic bags - why don't they put a ziplock thing on it so you don't have to rebag it??

(notice how almost all my peeves involve PEOPLE? *lol*)

Sorry so long..... I'm just dying for some good rants I guess....

various cornsnakes, 0.1 black pine snake, 1.0 uromastyx geyri, etc.

Good thread! Here are a few of mine:

-Drivers who don't signal.
-People who think Honda civics are sports cars.
-People who need a loud car stereo to get noticed.
-Ignorant people who talk about things they no nothing about. Example: "That 4 foot ball python is dangerous! It could have eaten my cat!" Damn, get a clue lady!
-People who drive in the left lane. THAT IS THE PASSING LANE!

I'd better stop before I blow a gasket here!

Usually the people making the decisions are not directly affected by them either.

Some more.

People that expect the company I work for to refund money for a purchased product even though they purchased the product from a reseller and not directly.

People that think 8am is a good time to call. (anything before 11 is uncilvilized)

Happy clickers. They click everywhere except where you tell them to. They also have the attention span of a ferret with a severe case of ADD and a suger rush.

Small minded people.

Inflexable management (often the root cause of breaking a company).

Zero Tolerance rules (we are seeing these in our schools more and more. ie, no toy guns, not even making a gun shape with your fingers and pointing it at some one, or no knives, not even a plastic butter knife. sound like it couldn't happen? it already has all over the world and it's happening more and more.)

I have more but I have to go to lunch.
