Mine is when people ask me questions about why I didn't double comment on my own thread.

Hehe.

Now to be serious, I hate it when people don't post in the code tags, but don't we all?

Oh and when Minecraft nerds ask me to help them make mods. That is just a total no.

I have a never ending list of pet peves. I seem to discover new things each day.

1. Lag
2. Kids
3. Little kids
4. High pitched voices (chicks are excluded, to a point)
5. Highly religious people that attempt to get me to join their church.
6. Awkward conversations with said religious people.
7. When my stupid computer freezes up all the time (I'm thinking of doing a clean install)
8. Little kids
9. Kids who talk about 4chan
10. Kids who bring memes into real life. It's okay to a point, but in excess, stfu.
11. When someone steals my idea/content/stuff
12. 12-year-olds
13. Holier-than-thou people
14. People who say "trollface" in real life. You don't know how to troll.
15. Getting rep'd up, then rep'd back down.
16. That one spot I can't reach to itch
18. CODfags (general non-stop video games talk)
17. CODfags - The ones who think they know everything about weapons
18. CODfags - The ones who think they can blow someones face off with their "akimbo shotguns" and that they are superhuman with abilities to "own" in wars and such.
19. Really stupid people. At first it's okay, then funny, then extremely annoying.
20. People who laugh during sad shit - Some kid started to laugh and cracked a joke stating how "this isn't going to bring anyone back" while a family talks about how they kid was gunned down in front of their home.

And the list goes on and on...

3. Little kids

It all deals with how the parents raise the kids. Little kids aren't that bad, if their parents discipline them and teach them not to be obnoxious. Little kids that kick, scream, get all in your space (especially if they're not in your party) are obnoxious and annoy me.

1) มากง่าย (Maak Ngaay), literally, "People who have to do the easiest thing they possibly can" or "People who are absolutely unwilling to make an effort"

2) End users. Middlemen will never cease to exist because middlemen mean producers don't have to deal with end users.

3) Bureaucrats (and by extension, all bureaucracy).

4) the inadequacies of google translate (example: "Bureaucracy" translates to "การปกครองระบบเจ้าขุนมูลนาย" in Thai, pronounced "Gan Bok krong rabob jao kun mun naay", translated phonetically into english as "Kār pkkhrxng rabb cêāk̄hunmūlnāy", which as you can probably see, has lots of muckups)

5) Young Earth Creationists (there is no evidence, even according to the bible, to suggest that the earth is in the thousands of years old). The idiots that roam around particularly the US having "Jesus Conventions" and inviting christian schools to teach this shit piss me off exponentially more, like that Australian guy, whatever his name is.

6) Pseudoscience (like the idea that Autism is caused by vaccination. perfectly legitimate theory that was disproved and continues to be disproved. Now it's pseudoscience because it continues to be treated as fact by pseucoscientists).

Or when they are obnoxiously loud in a public not child oriented setting. Example: loud kids in restaurant (not Chuck-E-Cheese or such because that is child oriented).

Also, people who act like little kids, thinking idiotic jokes are still funny, or trying to rick roll people (I know someone who's" trying to bring it back").

Finally, people who complain to the point of hysterics about what they have to do, a.k.a. dramma queens.

There's more, but alot are situation specific. Almost forgot people who make out ALL THE TIME.

other people touching my PC. that's the biggest one.

slow people. like at the counter at my local supermarket, I have to actively avoid this one cashier, my grandma could do her job faster.

People that copy/paste a shoddy website or application together and call themselves programmers.

people in my project group in college that constantly push the boundaries of how little they can do and get away with it.

stupid people that think they are smart. I swear I once had an hour long discussion with a dude that wouldn't believe the sun is a star. In the end I just ran to the nearest PC to show him the facts.

those are the biggest ones.

One of my personal favorites.

I could honestly probably contribute more to this thread than most, as I've suppressed more rage than the Catholic church has child rape, but I worry that my list would never end, so I usually try not to even get started in these kind of threads.

Hate it when my socks bunch up in my shoes. Hate it when my boss asks me why I'm not working when he has nothing that needs to be done ATM. Hate it when people touch my guitar.

Hate that weed is illegal.

Crappy drivers annoy me. People that feel the need to go 25 MPH when the speed limit is 45 irritate the heck out of me. GO THE SPEED LIMIT OR DON'T DRIVE!!!

In contrast, people that feel the need to go 60 on a 45 annoy me as well, especially when road rage is part of the equation. There is such a thing as being a cautious, courteous, and safe driver while doing the speed limit people. DRIVE!!! But drive safely and let people get where they're going.

Lastly, if I'm in the car as a passenger and someone chooses to take the scenic route, that annoys me. Take the expressway rather than going local and we'll be there in less time!!!
