So!
what really annoys you in modern life? For me it has to be taxi drivers and motor cyclists. oh, and i hate texting on the phone. everyone does it, at the table while they're talking it's insidious!... What about you?!

hypocrites
Formula movies. Handsome, deep voiced, hot headed Hero + stern Father Figure + sexy, sassy Love Interest + snarling, shallow, incurably evil Villain + extended Action Scenes + Happy Ending = another shit, conveyer belt film churned out by a sweatshop of movie makers.
Admittedly we've been seeing these since the dawn of Hollywood, but whereas before some thought was put in to making the movies at least cohesive, with a few human traits the audience can grasp, now they've been stripped to their bare elements, so the formula above is pretty much ALL some productions consist of.
It reminds me of a scene from Mrs. McGinty's Dead by Agatha Christie, where Mrs. Ariadne Oliver, a detective novelist, is discussing a stage adaptation of one of her books with a theater producer, who wants to turn her effete and ageing, superior sleuth into a virile, Errol Flynn-like adventurer with a love interest. When Mrs. Oliver tells him that she doubts her sleuth really cares for women, he says something like: "But darling, he simply can't be a pansy!"

Haha oh god why is this true????

Hate how shallow/braindead/prejudiced/nasty/despicable human beings are populating the public consciousness and being lauded as pseudo-celebrities. Thanks, reality TV!

People who like to fart at social gatherings and thinking they are funny.
People who allow their children to become obnoxious in restaurants and shopping malls.
T.V commercials

can't argue with any of them either
i hate parents of obnoxious kids Angry

someone ripping one out doesn't really bother.

i detest people who think they're above everyone else.

thethingy; are we all a bit hypocritical? that said i hate the out and out hypocrite

i also hate tv soaps Angry they are truly atrocious
standing in line and somebody goes in front
yeah, queue jumping i hate that, when i used to go
to Europe for hols the Germans were well known for it. here in the Philippines it's rife. specially on the road. but anywhere there's a queue there's a Filipino pushing to the front.
yes here's the same,shopkeepers helping 3 people at the time is a good one too
Oh lord, those shopkeepers.Angry I've been to stores where the shop attendants move like snails, and when you come up to the counter they'll blatantly ignore you while chatting and laughing over the phone (yeah they definitely know you're waiting because you're standing two feet away)
i hate them almost as much as taxi drivers and bus drivers.

i hate people who take their job too seriously, when somewhere should be open at say 10am you're standing there at 1010am and they can see you through the glass and the look at their effin watch and turn around or worse yet, ask you what you want. AngryAngryAngry
