The stupid power at our house has a habit of going out for about 1 second every week or two.  It's bad enough resetting all the clocks, but yesterday I was playing a racing video game, about 8 minutes into a 9 minute race and doing really good too...I will not be held responsible for my language in such situations  Hatred

This may have been mentioned before, but the people who get into the elevator at the last second, often forcing the elevator to reopen, and they go to the second floor.

I've been running late so many times for work, and that annoys the p**s out of me.

I'm pretty sure this one, or something similar, has been posted before.

People that when buying groceries, wait until the cashier has rung up all their items and given them the total to START getting their wallet / checkbook / credit card / whatever out.  Good grief.  You had 90 seconds or more of just standing there to get it out and be ready.

I'm not usually all that impatient, but this one just bugs me because it is rude to those behind in the line.  Never know if someone is running late for work or some such, and people stand there with a blank stare on their face during the ringing up of items to only act surprised that "Hey, I guess I gotta pay...better get my wallet out."

At my local the cashiers don't bag anything for you they just leave the plastic bag sitting there so you have to delay all the people behind you when you have finished paying -.-

Conspiracy theorists.  At least, the more obnoxious ones.  And people who think the world is ending.  A lot of crossover between the two.

Installed the latest Windows update and now all my desktop icons are in a big square pile on the right side of the screen   Hatred  I keep them arranged in two groups, depending on if it's stuff I use or stuff that just needs to be there.  So now I've gotta separate and arrange them all over again.

Dealerships. They want to ban the sales for Teslas since Teslas doesn't go through dealerships. Some states has done that and banned the sales for Teslas, which is a US PRODUCT. And it is also dealerships which led to over 500 New Vipers not being sold since the dealerships screwed up the customer's order.

Fearmongering over Ebola.  Yes, it is a deadly disease, but as an American, your odds are better of being struck by lightning while riding a unicycle in the nude singing old Motley Crue songs than they are of your dying of the Ebola virus! Hatred

I have done that: got badly singed. Won't say where though. Wink

Seriously, the channels I watch like Fox and MSNBC do it to death and it is scaremongering with a vengeance. Here I am in Africa and I am not afraid until I watch TV and then I go  Buggedout Buggedout

I get your point, but that is wrong.  The odds of my being struck by lightning while riding a unicycle (clothed or whatever I am singing) are precisely zero because I don't ride unicycles.  Zero is less than the statistical odds of catching and dying from Ebola.

Manipulation of numbers to make a point grinds my gears...sorry.  Facts are required for rational decision making; clouding facts with hyperbole (from either side) by definition leads to irrationality.

OK, how about this: the average American is far more likely to kill himself in a 4th of July fireworks accident than he is to die of Ebola.
Not to mention dying of heart disease from eating too many cheeseburgers.

When I grab the scroll bar at the right of the screen and move it up to the top - but if I go too far it snaps back to the bottom of the screen where I was before.  I mean, what the f***?!?!

What just happened minutes ago: the phone rings and it is a scam call "Hello, my name is David Parker.  We are calling you about your microsoft computer"

- automated dialing so I had time to say "Hello?" three times before he picked up.  RUDE.
- had to be one of the TOP THREE THICKEST Indian accents I have ever heard: "David Parker".  Really.  Lookingup
- never mind the whole 'microsoft computer' thing OR the fact that Microsoft does NOT have my phone number...

I HATE being played for stupid!   Hatred Hatred Hatred

I am also not a fan of having been brought up to be oh-so-very polite so I feel extra-angry after having hung up.  *Sigh* What a number my parents did on me!  Lookingup  TongueOut

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
