View Full Version : You know what I HATE? (Pet Peeves thread)

Pretty much any conversation/debate/discussion/argument/flamewar/etc about evolution EVER.

I don't give a shit whether it's true or not, whether it should dictate public policy or common morality or not, whether it contains the key to the meaning of life...

EVOLUTION IS NOT INTERESTING!

(Well, okay, it is. There are things about the <i>occurence</i> of evolution that are very interesting. But the arguments involving and about the validity and applicability of evolution as a <i>system</i> - i.e. the only conversation anybody who isn't a biologist or anthropologist ever has about evolution - ARE NOT INTERESTING.

Thank you. That is all.

Please leave a rant after the tone. *beep*

my nephew brought up a little interesting factoid a short while ago: the probability that humans evolve to a state like we have it now is about as high as a tornado hitting a junkyard and building a fully functional boeing 747 out of the parts that are laying around

I really, really don't want to start one of these debates. But, that is about as far from an interesting little factoid as they come. It sort of seems logical, but really it is just a dumb little statement which just demonstrates that the person who said it hasn't even the most fundamental understanding of evolutionary theory.

i have a lot of pet peeves

i'm not big on whistlers, unless they are good

i hate it when people who are begging me for money are real assholes. nothing makes me much angrier.

i hate it when people honk their horns unneccessarily, unless they're my friends and then it just aggrivates me.

it kills me when the pop machine won't accept dollar bills unless they are perfect. grrr.

i hate people on the bus who talk really loud about personal things. this means most 10-22 year olds.

i don't like it when people are inconsiderate of others, even if that's just the way the person is. it's not really an acceptable trait to me.

i also hate it when people stop dead in their tracks on the sidewalk to have a conversation.

Actually, I think I do this quite a bit. Usually it's because I'm trying to explain some abstract theoretical concept that takes perfectly clear shape in my head, but I don't realize until I start talking about it that I haven't worked out the words to articulate it in terms of like, linear description - so I end up kinda babbling and sounding like I'm going around in circles. I've tried to stop doing it, but sometimes I just don't realize it's going to happen until it happens. Maybe I should try writing down my comments first...

agreed. a few days ago i was walking to my house and the pavement was really thin. there were these two little boys about 11 years old, walking home from school and babbling nonsense and they knew i was behind them but didn't budge. so i walked around them and got ahead, when one of them said in a snooty little rat voice "it's rude to overtake unless you're on the motorway!" so i said "fuck off you little cunt!!" and they got scared :rofl:

don't get me wrong - i love walking too. but when you're late for class and there are a bunch of chinese tourists in front of you in a group so large that it's impossible to "overtake" them, as isle would say, then i get a little peeved. that IS the point of this thread.

OH NO I'M LATE FOR CLASS!! I'D BETTER GET THERE IN 2 MINUTES INSTEAD OF 4 BECAUSE IT MAKES SUCH A HUGE DIFFERENCE.

ok maybe not class, but if im going to work and a 2 minute difference is going to get me into trouble or whatever, then yeah, i'd like to be on time. besides, i'd rather spend more time at home relaxing, or enjoying myself with friends before class or work then being stuck behind a group of slow walkers. if i have to travel a little faster to get where im going, and have more time to spend doing what i really want, then that's where my priorities are.

there is so much wrong with your logic I shouldn't even reply but I am:

a) there is often a big difference in being ON TIME versus being 2 or 4 minutes late.

b) Not "everyone" is always saying they hate how fast the world moves so there is no validity to that part of your arguement. I have no problem with fast walkers or slow walkers, but fast walkers should go around without making a fuss and slow walkers should always be aware and leave a way around (especially if they are in groups).

a) and i recognize the difference between being on time and being 2 or 4 minutes late, i didn't say that that difference wasn't there. i was just commenting on how people who are going to be late no matter how fast they go don't accept it. you'll get there why you get there. there's no point in speeding and risking lives.

Oh ya, I think it is time to unveil my "Theory of Asian Walking Speed" to the public. I came up with this while in university. It simply states,
"The speed of an Asian student in a public hallway, is inversely proportional to the total number moving in the group."

For example,
one Asian - nearly always runs, jogs, or speed walks to get wherever they are going.

two Asian's in a group - travel at a normal speed.

three Asian's in a group - walk slowly together but generally do not impede the flow of traffic.

four or more Asian's in a group - way slower than average walking speed and generally block any normal traffic flow. It is generally very difficult to pass this group.

twelve or more: I have never actually seen a group moving. They just stand in one place talking and stuff. I believe they have to break into smaller groups in order to move.

-i hate cars that treat cyclists like shit and zoom right past you at super high speeds. some of the times if i sneezed and moved a bit too much to the left id get totally smashed and die were one of those assholes passing.

-rude receptionists/secretaries/etc. theres no need for this shit.

-drama queens. if theres one breed of people i have no patience for this is it. girls and guys. also people with no patience

-people who bud in lines. if you do this, i hate you. its amazing how you could get to a concert early, for whatever reason, be waiting in line and some shithead cock sniffer can stroll in an hour after you and just weasel his way an hour ahead of you. its good that canada doesnt allow handguns

-power moms

-edge 102, the toronto rock station. i have so many peeves with edge 102 i could devote a whole thread to it. probably my one most hated thing right now

-people who act fake serious and fake offended at risque or taboo humour.

-"woooo" as a thing to yell at concerts or whatever. especially when girls do it

-those coral necklaces. awfulness

-people who dont listen to the music at a concert, especially those who go exclusively for the socializing. even more so when said peoples socializing lessens the enjoyment of people who are actually there to hear the music

-puns. of all kinds, almost no exception.

-people that take up more than one seat on the bus/subway when its not empty or whatever. especially when its with something small like a purse

-people who say 'bless you' when you sneeze, without any irony

-laziness. in myself at times and in others. what a disgusting quality, a huge turn off

-artists

-librarians, and the type

-impunctuality

-heavy days. days that feel heavy, either because of the barometric pressure or otherwise

-scalpers and other forms of profiteering/price gouging. people who up the price of water bottles during a heat wave, etc. scumy fucking pieces of shit

-vanilla. the smell and flavour. by association, now the the colour

-thongs. ive always thought they were the tackiest shit

i wont take back the wooo one at all, but the cowboy hat one a little. i should have said when total non-cowboys wear it.

also not librarians per say, but the people like them. people who read only classics, are strictly academic and pompous, like cheesy poetry, and drink special tea. this isnt exactly a cliche or vague either, ive know people who were all of the above. on a superficial note, theyre also often in that ugly age stage where theyre not young, and not cute-old like a geezer, but like a recently liberated mom kinda old. also as annoying

"The speed of an Asian student in a public hallway, is inversely proportional to the total number moving in the group."

For example,
one Asian - nearly always runs, jogs, or speed walks to get wherever they are going.

two Asian's in a group - travel at a normal speed.

three Asian's in a group - walk slowly together but generally do not impede the flow of traffic.

four or more Asian's in a group - way slower than average walking speed and generally block any normal traffic flow. It is generally very difficult to pass this group.

twelve or more: I have never actually seen a group moving. They just stand in one place talking and stuff. I believe they have to break into smaller groups in order to move.

This is hilarious. Especially the part about the one Asian jogging or speed walking, but I think this is especially true of Asian females with short hair. When my boyfriend and I are walking around near the university downtown, we've gotten into the habit of saying, "uh-oh, rapidly traveling Asian" every time one comes around the corner.

Ha. It just means that you've done everything you can to get rid of it....and you've gotten really close. but obviously there's still a little bit. So you've 'all but eliminated' it.

walmart. everything about it.

i hate that as a college student with almost no displosable income, walmart caters exactly to me since i can get food there for much less than anywhere else. a gallon of soymilk is less than four dollars there. that's insane.

i hate that they constantly inject this piece of common knowledge into the american public that they are the world's largest employer while they skillfully grace over the fact they've destroyed about 3 times as many jobs as they've created.

i hate going to walmart after a long day of work to do some grocery shopping and being surrounded by rude ass motherfuckers who decided to take all seven of their rude ass motherfucking kids to walmart with them at 11pm on a tuesday. they straddle the entire aisle making it impossible for me to get by. their stupid puerto rican children jump in front of my cart at any opportunity. they go into the self checkout line with four carts full of 200 items but only because the 20 items or less express lane has rejected them.

other things i hate:
slow walkers
people who don't know what a yeild sign is
people who drive through red lights
loud people who are not on a stage

I have no interest in the debate of evolution, but I had it when people think that their opinion or public opinion in general, or just some witty quip that makes them sound like they know what they're talking about suddenly constitutes actual FACT.

I am so bad about this. I try to let most people in, but if they don't wave or anything I start talking to them like "YES THANK YOU FOR THE HAND WAVE SINCE I WAS SO NICE TO LET YOU IN. YOU ARE SO CONSIDERATE! I KNEW I SHOULDN'T HAVE LET YOU IN!!" and then I feel like my nice deed has been cancelled out by my rude comments. But seriously. is it too much to ask for appreciation?
