    What are some little things that bug you?

    Discovered one that drove me up the wall the other day. I had been setting up my DVR to record a show and was scrolling through the guide and saw A Family Affair*. I was bored so I looked at the episode listings and saw one was a family member in Indiana wants to take the kids in. Well given I live in Indiana I wanted to see what happened and what city it was. Well it was Terra Haute. It is pronounced with a HOE sound in Haute. In the show they kept calling it Terra HUT. I kept talking back "Terra HOE-T you little moron!" It really got under my skin for some reason. i live about an hour and a half away from there so I know how to pronounce it. They are supposedly FROM there and yet they say it wrong.



    *For those who never saw it, it was a late 60s TV show where three kids (A Teen girl and twins (boy and girl) are orphaned and go to live with their uncle in NYC. The uncle has a butler, Mr. French who kind of becomes a nanny in the process. It is sadly famous now be cause the young girl later ODed at 18.

    1. I thought I pressed play but I actually pressed the eject button on my CDJ.
    2. When your phone battery dies when you are outside.
    3. When water splashes up your ass as you take a sh*t.

    Whenever people use apostrophes in plural words. It's "pencils", goddammit, not "pencil's".

    That's why you dump four or five sheets of toilet paper onto the water before you drop a deuce. Stuff acts to cushion the shit and prevents it from splashing the water onto you. Problem solved.

    I used to do that whenever I peed in public toilets, so no one could hear the tinkle. Now, I couldn't care less, so just tinkle away.

    I don't poop because I am a lady......

    I get annoyed when people fart in elevators or the car or other enclosed spaces and don't seem to give a shit that I have to breath it in.

    You should. It's toilet water and therefore full of germs.

    technically, so is bath water. I am sure most of us have scooped that up with our mouths to make a fountain :)  Just me?......

    I used to wee in my baths, shamelessly. I can still remember my brother and I at about 4 and 5 shouting out *geronimo* as we each took a whiz into the bath.

    Repetition. (Like if someone says one word several times, either inadvertently, or just to annoy me.

    People being serious, then saying "I'm just messing with you man!"

    1. Paid, "prpfessional" journalists who do not proofread their work and when it's published, i have to read their glaring mistakes. example: "...says the mayor. in the the interim, their will be no actions taken in the interim." WTF?

    2. Youtube commentors.

    3. parents who just let their kids scream and wail endlessly in a crowded store. either take the kid outside or take them to the bathroom for a nice ass-whooping. either way, shut the kid up.

    4. People who will burn city hall down for not getting an extra $25 in food stamps, but won't fill out a job application.

    5. Teenagers. (i think it's an actual sign of my advanced age.)

    6. Weekend marathons- "Deadliest Catch". "Auction Hunters", "Hot in Cleveland", etc. weekends at my house have become DVD days now.

    Classmates that seem to go after only one classmate during discussion because that classmate brought up interesting points and relevant class material. To not seem like a complete dumbass to make up for the fact they suck at being observant, they go after the said person right after their turn to make it look sincere when they're just rebutting the statement the class verified or acknowledged or had no insight on before.
