Abraham my friend: You are certainly the correct person to start this thread,
which gives a lot of us the opportunity to vent!
Here's some of my "things and sayings that annoy":
People who go out in public with their babies, and the babies have on only their diaper.
Can you say "poor white trash" any stronger?
People who go out in public dressed in flannel PJ pants and supposedly ironically-entertaining
big sheepskin slippers, or with some cartoon character on them. More white trash attire.
You are waiting patiently at a stop sign in your vehicle, so as not to cut off an approaching vehicle.
Then the ignorant driver of said vehicle turns into your side street or driveway without using
their turn signal, and they are on their cell phone, as if it's impossible to hit the turn signal
while they are chatting. Grrrrr!
People who enter a 70 MPH road, cut you off, then go 40 MPH.
People who ride the brakes when approaching a green light, then the light turns yellow, they
take their foot off the brake, and cruise through on the yellow/red. Grrrr!
The signs which TexDOT posts that say "State Law: Obey Warning Signs". I always took it for
granted that if the authorities post a sign, of course they want you to comply with it.
Why post this stupid sign?
I hate that ammo boxes will be displayed with the short side out, but they don't state the number
of rounds in that box, or the style of ammo.
Since I prefer accurate terms to approximate terms, I dislike it when people call revolvers "pistols",
or the old "clip" vs. magazine thing.
Over time the word "literally" has lost its original meaning. Now people use "literally" for all kinds
of things. "If I've told you once, I've told you a million times....don't exaggerate!".
Although not hearing-impaired, I always watch movies with "subtitles on". Some movies have
subtitles which exactly match what's being said. Some are only approximate. I hate it when
they don't accurately reflect what is being said.
Over and out for now.
Arms discourage and keep the invader in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property...
Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of them.
