Pet peeves.....

narconut's picture

I'm starting a pet peeve list for everyone so they can get their frustrations out, and be happy, relaxed etc. Feel free to share yours. Let the love flow.

My pet peeve is:

People making out in the middle of class.
and
People making political statements when they do not have their facts straight (either side, republican or democrat, conservative or liberal).

People saying they don't be

People saying they don't believe in gay marriage without a good reason using the exscuse god made adam and eve not adam and adam when they don't even believe god made adam and eve. In other words people having strong opinions without good reasons to back them up.

People lying about things like i'll ring you and then don't if your not going to then don't say you will. Or i'll french knit you a braclet then don't.

Oh boy!

Old ladies who stare at me and my boyfriend when we hold hands or hug, homeschoolers who gossip about my music and my gay clothes and the way i act, kids whow wear sunglasses inside cause they think they look cool, feet, eyebrow plucking. i also have to agree with political wannabes who don't have a clue what they're talking about. especially republicans.

Ouch!

I happen to be a very well-read republican. Sorry you feel that way. What can I say? To each their own.

Conservativism

It's my opinion that conservatives (using the proper definition of the word) are a very different breed than "neocons" like Shrub and his pack of fascists (again using the textbook definition), which could better be described as corporatism. What's conservative about the Bush tax cut, or the multibazillion-jillion dollar airline bailout? For that matter, what's conservative about the international adventurism that we're engaged in now? It blow my mind sometimes how "conservatives" like Bush (and Reagan before him, really the father of the modern genre) run their foreign and military policies with an arrogance and high-handedness that would have made FDR and his liberals blush with shame.

Conservativism (jeez, that's a hard one to spell), on the other hand, is based on ideas like not legislating morality, keeping government away from business and vice versa keeping government away from religion and and vice versa, and conservation ("just a minute, TeeAhr, you mean to tell us that conservatives want to conserve?" I know, baffling, isn't it?) of our natural, economic, and military resources (like Teddy Roosevelt, founder of the national park system). Ralph Nader is more conservative than the conservatives. Conservative issues are populist issues. (And if I am forced to type out "conservative" or any derivation thereof once more today, I shall surely vomit.)

Wow, who put a quarter in my ass this morning, huh? Anyway, not trying to shred you, just want to get a dialogue going, I don't meet many knowledgeable Republicans. Please do reply/rebut/rant right back.

2 Quotes from "This Hour Has 22 minutes" about Bush

"Having George Bush tell you about business ethics is like having a leper give you a facial. Doesn't really work"

"George Bush says he's a 'compassionate conservative'. I'm not sure what that is, but it sort of sounds like a Volvo with a gun rack."

Homeschool Group

I wasn't referring to well-read republicans, just homeschool wannabe republicans who grew up listening to no one but their parents and feel compelled to do what their parents do even though they don't have their own beliefs to back it up. sorry! (i'm homeschooled too by the way and my parents whom i love deeply are dubya to the core)

J's picture

What bothers me?

When I poor my heart out to someone I care about so deeply and they don't say anythign, or say "I don't know what to say." People from my old community and their small little close-minded views. When I give and give and give so much and don't even get the littlest bit of love in return. My ex boyfriend (emphasis on the ex) and how he use to deal with everything by fighting and saying "your not being objective," I think that one take the icing on the cake and I'm SOOOOOO glad I don't have to deal with his shit......anymore!

peeve

My pet peeve is the sound of people eating and drinking, especially when they make smacking and slurping noises and swallow really loudly. Drives me nuts.

guideingforce's picture

I HATE that! Especially in c

I HATE that! Especially in cheap movies on tv stations. They'll have a scene where a family is at dinner, and I just hate the sounds of the silver wear clinking, swallowing, etc.
Hate hate hate!

Druids, damn them!

No, I'm just kidding, I actually love druids, and know some very nice ones. No, my pet peeves, is people who REFUSE to watch foreign films because it's "too much reading." GAH! Also, people who use the word "like" beyond its actual deffinition. It makes me angry, especially when I do it. No worries:)

The disease

Also, people who use the word "like" beyond its actual deffinition. It makes me angry, especially when I do it.

Good one. Unfortunately, it spreads like the damn flu, and once you're infected, you're doomed. It's a *ahem* degeneratory linguistic contagion (you like that one?), and it is sucking the soul out of modern American English.

Pet peeves

I can't stand words. The worst one of all is "packet" (shudder) followed closely by "wipe" and "queasy". The rest are mainly combo verbs with "up" in them: "wake up," "clean up," "warm up," etc. And then the following list of expressions:
-Good to go
-Make life less miserable
-Catch 22
-Dog eat dog world
-"I'm not good at pronunciation, so I'm sorry if I butcher your name"
-I know, right?
-Sweet!
-Bad! (As in "good". I mean, come on.)
-Same difference
-I could care less (How does that make ANY sense? Shouldn't you be UNABLE to care less?!)
-I prefer _____, myself. (Whats with the stress pronoun? You already made it quite clear that you're referring to yourself. You don't have to say "myself".)
-I have no clue.
-I'm not sure. (Geez, admit you don't know. Just say "I don't know.")
-Bro (When used by white guys.)
-It makes me feel warm and fuzzy
-I'm smart like that
-I'm gonna deck 'em! (Wha? He's cards now?)

And it goes on and on and on. I don't know how I live in a world where people say these things.

SAME DIFFERENCE!

I hate that too. It is, by far, the stupidest expression ever uttered in the english language.

my pet peeves

I play cello and we had an orchestra competition today, a few of my orchestral pet peeves; when people tightent their bows so much that they look like they are about to break in half, when cellists or bassists refuse to put their in-pins up and slouch over really low to play, and when people only use vibratto on one finger (i mean, is it really that hard to learn how to use your other four fingers).

My other pet peeves; When people say (not type, when the're actually using vocal cords) stuff like, "g2g", "wtf", "ttyl" and "omg", when people type stuff like this it bothers me, but i can deal with it. And my final pet peeve is when people ask if i shave my legs when im wearing shorts or capris. If i shaved my legs, they wouldn't be hairy would they?

Negitivity

Another peeve of mine is when people say STUPID, RETARD, DUMB, and such like that.

The Fucking Enlightenment!

Also known as the Age of Reason. I despise it. It created a few good ideas (Locke was neat) but mostly just made for dry, uninteresting literature with no soul or humanity. I dislike it.

TELEVISION!

You cannot fathom the depths of my hatred for television and the pandering, peddling, duping, and drugging of America that it represents. They'd all better pray at night to whatever evil god they pray to that I never rule.

note

You do know the term "wigger" is an amalgamation of "white nigger," right? Might it have been better to say something like "uncultured middle class white kids?"

JB's picture

Wigger

Its a wrod. to describe a fake person. a wannabe. I do not see it as racist predudiced at all.

suffragettecity's picture

So you're saying that to insu

So you're saying that to insult a White person who is perceived as trying to imitate Blacks using a word derived from "nigger" isn't racist? If a White kid with a stereotyped conception of Black culture who appropriates the superficial aspects of it is a "wigger" ("white nigger"), then what does make a Black kid who dresses like that? In my hometown, I sometimes heard people call the local Native American people "prairie niggers." Do you think that's insulting only to Native peoples, but not to Blacks? Think about it.

I'm not accusing anyone of being prejudiced, but in my opinion, using words like that is just, like, so gay.

TeeAhr1's picture

"Wiggers"

No, because there are several kinds of uncultured middle class white kids. I'm one (see: hick). I know what a wigger is, that's why I said it. I agree with JB, I don't think it's a racist thing. I think the fact that there are wiggers is kind of demeaning, actually, to black and white people alike.

TeeAhr1. Filthy.
