    This is probably going to rub people the wrong way, but people who say "Bless you" after someone sneezes. Save it. You're not the Pope. While I somewhat appreciate the sentiment, I don't need your fake blessing. For most people, it's become a socially-accepted, knee-jerk reaction with no real blessing behind it; people say it only because other people are saying it. When I'm in a public place and I have to sneeze, I'll hold it in just to prevent the obligatory barrage of "bless you's" that I have to uncomfortably and unwantingly thank to not be perceived as a ungrateful prick.

    A friend of mine who is an atheist says "bless you" after people sneeze. I almost want to call him out, but just let it go. Not worth the argument.

    As you said, it's become one of those social things and many people get offended if you don't. I actually got called out at work for not saying it to a coworker (I'm atheist myself) not because of any particular belief stance other than, like you, I think it's pointless. That was perhaps the weirdest "argument" I've ever had.

    Not to be rude but that seems like a stupid thing to get mad over.

    You don’t know that I’m not the pope. You can’t prove it.

    People honking in tunnels. It's distracting, dangerous, annoying, and stupid, and I can't think for the life of me why that weird old tradition has still persisted.

    God doesn’t have any mercy left for you or this forum, Sylent. Only pain. Pain and gold plastic syndrome.

    Yeah, dude. That poor clown got bullied ‘till he had a heart-attack by a bunch of troubled miscreants with a violent history, all because he wanted to go out to eat occasionally.

    It’s a facetious bastardization of “literally”.

    It’s become another little joke that “young women say literally too much” and women who do are often regarded as “vapid” or parodied in general for that and other things as having obnoxious accents or speech-patterns.

    I’m semi-ironically playing in to that by spelling it “litcherally” like I’m speaking the word in an exaggerated, overly phoneticized way. So. Like. Litcherally. *flips hair*

    I believe this is true for stupid tweens and typical head-up-their-own-asses millennials that hang around and sadly follow morons on YouTube of all places, learn from memes & gifs, etc., but the word "literally" has, in fact, been used, overused, misused and mispronounced/over-phoneticized loooooooooong before bimbo tarts or basic bro dudes got a hold of it, let alone thought they were clever by intentionally saying it wrong.

    Rob Lowe's character on Parks & Recreation was already screwing it up LITERALLY 10 years ago...

    i think I mentioned it before, but i really dislike it when customers cone up to me and ask "hey. Is this an easy job?". No... Jobs aren't easy. Especially jobs where you're undersupplied and your opinion to make things better is lower than the worms in the dirt. I can tell half the time that they're just lazy a** teens looking to get bored and make money at the same time. Keep away unless you genuinely want to work and earn the money.

    Geez, I just realized how much is peeving me lately. ..i need a vacation.....if only part timers could get some before they worked three years!!!
    (I'm aware that some jobs don't get vacation at all, and that us even worse)

    Lastly, but yet again. Autocorrect. Why do you only try and fix the words I don't want fixed then don't fix the ones I do??
