    Fast food places switching to video screen menus that only show one piece of the menu at a time in a slow rotation. Fine if I'm in line a while, not so good if there's no line and I have to stand there waiting for the right screen to come up in rotation, then hope I find my items before it rotates to the next thing (or advertisement).

    Rye chips in Chex Mix. I love Chex Mix as a work snack, but dammit if those rye chips aren't the most gawdawful creations ever put into a bag.
    I tried one once and nearly gagged. Since then, I toss each one I find in the bag into the nearest trash receptacle.

    Trying to cut out sugar, and it's incredible how many things have added sugar. And many of those things with added sugar are things marketed as healthy.

    No it isn't. That's just how we (Brits) pronounce it, which is just as wrong as 'Van Go.' The native Dutch pronunciation is closer to 'Vun Khokh' but you can get away with 'Van Gokh' if you want to appear as though you're making an effort.

    Correct. Here "van go" and "van goff" are both incorrect. American's generally say the former though, even if its not right.

    My wife wants me to run errand on the way home that takes me right through terrible 5 o'clock traffic. Lovely.

    Studying for finals is not allowing me to talk to my friends as much as I'd like to. Just another week or two before they start...

    F'ing pissed, saw the trailer for the new South Park game coming out and I can't get it for the 360. Its too damn expensive for me to just go out and f'ing buy an f'ing One or 4. This is just great, first the last Naruto Ultimate Ninja then Street Fighter. This is why I barely play games anymore, to damn expensive to keep up.

    It annoys me when people complain the game they want isn't coming out on last gen.

    Bro you've had plenty of time to save up for a new console. 4 years right? That's a mere $10 to the side a month. I don't understand why your mad.

    ^ It doesn't help that I've been in a deep depression for a couple days, so really anything just sets me off right now. But honestly when games like Ninja Turtles can be released on old and new Gen yet other games I'm interested in are only getting new Gen releases just pisses me off. And the fact I'm struggling to get a job till I can get an internship somewhere I can right means I barely have enough money to spend on both Transformers (something I'm passionate about), Marvel legends, and other things I'm also passionate about. I only get enough from helping out around my small village to get at least say two deluxe Transformers at Walmart. Just really easily pissed right now.

    You do realize that some people aren't as young as you right? At your age you don't need to worry about paying for bills, food, or debts. Plus he has other hobbies that he likes to spend his own money on. Not everyone can afford something like a PS4 or an Xbox One.

    So he can be pissed off if he wants to.

    Not everyone wants to either. Like me. I'd rather put the $10 a month aside towards a nice juicy bison steak. Then again, I tend to buy more than one of them a month so there's that too :D

    It annoys me when ga,Es only come out on next Gen. I have NO interest in getting an Xbox One and it's annoying that 360 games are going out of production. (Halo 5 for example, Xbone only :mad )

    It's because it can't handle the graphics.
