Things which annoy me – Part I

30 Apr

Yeah, I am in a very sarcastic mood today so I am commencing the series. It will an ongoing series because I know that this is not the end and I do have my grumpy mood bouts. This subject has probably been beaten to death in the past but this is my first time beating the dead horse. Those who do not possess the funny bone, please go no further, others can safely read on –

  • People who sit on the couch next to you and tap their feet endlessly. Dude, dont you realize that you are actually in contact with me by virtue of the couch? Can you please respect my space and quit the mindless foot twitch?
  • People who post or email you inverted photos. Seriously, do you expect me to rotate my monitor or myself to be able to see you the right way? Have you heard of/seen the ‘rotate’ button in whatever software you are using?
  • Volume level of TV commercials. Why is every single one of them louder than the main TV show you are watching? What are they trying to prove – like the louder one wins the argument or something?
  • People who ask you ‘Are you alright?’ after they have fired you. Yeah, I feel like I am on a 5-star vacation and you just doubled my salary while I was away.
  • People who drive painfully slow in the leftmost lane. Dude, why dont you just get out of the car and take a walk(no pun intended)!

To be continued…..

    Ah, these are some of my favorites. Besides the couch foot tapping, I hate it when kids sit behind me in the movie theater and kick my seat–over and over.

    ‘Are you alright?’ You know when that bugs me the most? When I’m obviously in some sort of agony. Like when I bumped my head getting into the car, and my wife says, “Are you alright?” All I want to do is scream explatives at her ; )

    If you’re in too bad a mood, go check out some jokes. They might cheer you up. Funny Emails

    That’s my site. I hope you don’t mind me linking to it. Some people freak out when you put a link into their comments for some reason, like they’ve just been spammed or something.

    Ok I accept…I am guilty of posting an inverted photo on one of the social networking websites πŸ™‚ But what do you do when even after rotating the pic the damn thing still uploads inverted, and that is one good picture you don’t want to miss 😦

    Truly funny blog though.. waiting for Part II

    nice! and hey! there’s the ‘good on ya mate’ line here! ‘I had a nice breakfast this morning’, ‘good on ya mate’. ‘I’ve got two lectures to attend today!’ the same reply again.
    I’m tired of this!

    and for the ones on the left most lane, maybe they were driving a chrysler! πŸ™‚

    nice post

    waiting for the next part
