Come here to complain, about anything you want! (As long as it isn't anything super controversial that lands this thread in a shitstorm and it gets closed. C: )

I shall start;

Sundays. You can't stay up late or go out late since you have school the next day. All they're good for is sitting around, staring into space.

Back pains. I've had them since Friday afternoon, and they suck. I've been taking ibuprofen like a fiend...In fact I'm going to go eat and take two more. xC

Friend fights. Won't go into detail.

When friends don't text you back for no reason. Or lose their phone frequently. D: Dealing with this issue atm.

Siblings. >_> Mine are just annoying.

Fanfiction stories not getting posted quickly. Either it takes a long time for a 2,000 word story to appear, or some kind of technical shizz is going on. It's been about 2 or 3 hrs, I'm waiting for the 4 to roll around before I start freaking.

Oh yeah, also at the moment: My cat's litter box. Eww. *holds nose*

xD *has been checking back every 10 minutes* (mostly because it was my first time doing an adult [lemon] scene, so I want criticism on it. T_T) ARGHH. STILL NOT THERE. I BELIEVE IT HAS BEEN 4 HOURS. I CAN NOW RANT SHAMELESSLY.

To stay on track (I remembered a few more):

My sister's dog. That thing is getting on my nerves. >:C

Not being able to watch most anime at normal time on TV. (Naruto comes on at 10? If I'm not mistaken. And Inuyasha and all the 3am animes I've only seen once or twice.)

I'm working on a smut story, but I can't continue it because I don't know what I want them to do next!
I released a one shot a few days ago, I have four reviews. Each is telling me they love how I portrayed the characters, and then how I should continue.
NO. IT'S A ONE-SHOT. I will not revolve another one of my stories around rape! (Person one gets raped, person two helps person one through it.) T_T
But knowing me I will probably be doing it. Even though with my other one I need to update it NOW, and then I need to write the prequel to it.

I can review it! :'D

Mine was just one scene, what happened after that, and then it ended. And then I put in the A/N at the end that I will NOT do any more stories with the OC I used. He was a one-shot like the story. (But it kind of depresses me, because this was the first time an OC worked in a story. But it worked because it was one-shot. Rawr. :c)

And I need to work on TWO stories actually. One of them I just need to figure out what to drabble about so the story doesn't move too quickly, and the other I still have a bit of sorting out to do before I post it. >_<

Well, there is flirting before that, xD. But thanks for your enthusiasm.
Mine is difficult, I'm in a point where it starts out with a dramatic lost sibling OC, then it's like, "Ok, they just found a sibling they didn't know about. What now before they find out (spoiler) she's evil?"

It makes me rage. It makes me rage so hard.
ALSO being in a sewing class where my teacher has NO idea that I already know how to sew, and having to sit around listening to all the stupid girls in my class. One was bitching for like 15 minutes that her machine was retarded. I KNEW EXACTLY WHAT SHE WAS DOING WRONG IT WAS PAINFUL. And the day before that, a differrent girl had a problem with her machine. Do you know what the solution to it was? Do you? Can you guess?


SHE HADN'T PLUGGED HER DAMN MACHINE IN. OH. MY. GOD. She didn't even UNDERSTAND that that was her problem when someone was telling her! Someone had to come PLUG IT IN FOR HER before she understood! AHHH STUPID PEOPLE.

1. The flu. Specially since I'm allergic to flu medicines, so I have to just sleep it out and wait for my immune system to take care of it on it's own. MADNESS, I TELL YOU. D:
2. Lack of money. I'm debating between using what little money I have for either a cosplay, or a good camcorder for Youtube videos. Two hobbies I'd love to get into.
3. Neighbors. WHY do my neighbors feel the need to hammer stuff up on their walls at 2am? WHY?

People who automatically assume that I'm scared of [insert animal at the reptile house in the zoo] because I'm very femme-looking. Or who invite my boyfriend to go [insert manly activity here], but not me. He doesn't even like to do most "manly" things. I do, generally.

Also, Sarah Palin's rhetoric. (Though watching her backpedal now is almost funny, if not for the reason behind it.)

Anyways, my pet peeves has to be people thinking it's funny scaring the living daylight out of me x_x

When your in a rush through the hallway(I call it the highway 400, it's a busy road) and people decide they just need to walk so slow

When the person infront of you in line can't decide what to order by the time it took them to get there

So many drivers here just go without looking. I almost got hit twice with two different friends(they were both driving) because it was obvious we were going with nobody behind us but they became too damn impatient.

When people only know a good song because it is mixed in a crappy rapper's song.

Not seeing my boyfriend as much as I used to! :'(

Oh man, The Situation is actually 30 years old so it's real cute when I see him flirting with 14 year olds. Oh, and everyone they talk to on the show was not even on the beach at the time, they're actors paid to talk to them. Nobody can be in the stores they are in while they're filming. I have had the pleasure of telling them to go *beep* themselves and to leave. I'm pale, I know I how to apply makeup correctly, aghh. Really just annoys me.

(Yes, still depressed over it ._. sorry, it still gnaws hard on me)I'll read it if it's in English. And that's saying a lot b/c I never read anything. >.>

I use my blinkers! It annoys me when others don't too... But, it annoys me more when they are cruising along and then slow down quickly before a turn making me think they weren't turning and causing me to wait longer on them...

My biggest pet peeve and a very general one... Stupid people. It's not that I dislike people that are mentally handicapped, impaired, or have a learning disability... I dislike the people that have the potential to actually learn and just don't care. This peeve includes people that don't know the difference between your/you're, then/than, its/it's, etc.

It's kinda hard to believe for someone who's always lived on the American continent, but central heating in japan isn't something that's common (Does it exist at all?)

My sister who lives over there described it as follows : If it's -5 outside, it's -5 inside.

Kittens.

We all clutch kittens for warmth.

Seriously though:

pocketwarmers.

Not kidding. All winter we produce garbagebags full of personal waste every week by sticking disposable pocket-warmers all over our being so that we don't freeze in schools and office buildings which are often not heated.

The only places that are heated are shopping centers and all methods of public transportation. These places are kept at roughly 6,000 degrees so that everyone can wear bootyshorts comfortably.

If you're lucky, you buy a carpet that heats. Most people also have tables with heaters in them (the aforementioned kotatsu). Tiny kerosene heaters and halogen lamp heaters that warm up about 3 feet around your immediate person are also common.

My uncle makes such disgusting sounds when he eats, he sounds like a pig at a trough. Like NO ONE naturally makes these sounds when they eat, he does it because he wants people to pay attention to him. It's the most disgusting thing to see him hovering over his plate making these horribly disgusting slurping noises.

He eats ALONE because no one can stand looking at him, or listening, when he eats its so nasty.

I can't stand it when complete strangers come up to you to inquire of how "cute" their baby is supposed to be just because your a female. I mean seriously... and i also hate it when people baby talk little kids or babies and think it's cute.:eeek: I really don't think it's really appropriate, to me it just makes the adult or teens doing it look like total sub microbe simpletons with lower than qualified vocabulary. And yes while i understand on how it is supposed to be a type of "flattery"; and obvious flattery may i might add, i still on the whole find it really annoying and sometimes rather fake. But this is just me on how i view this.

Cashiers who judge you for whatever you're buying at the grocery store and then feel compelled to make a comment. Seriously, have you ever considered that I might give these six candy bars to my FRIENDS instead of eating them all by myself? (I know. It's a real stretch for some people to think that maybe, just maybe, a fat person actually HAS friends.)

Aghhh. This one grocery store was going out of business so I got some makeup that was on sale with food. She looked at me like I bought a friggen dead body. O.O

And also that even if you have a 16:9 widescreen TV, and you still get the little black bars for widescreen. Why can't then just make wider TV screens and then the widescreen format would technically be full screen?! Weird, man.

AGREEDAGREEDAGREED.
This happens all the time, mostly when I'm speaking to the only anime friend I have in RL, I'll be trying to quickly tell her about something anime-related, and one of my non-anime friends will butt in and try to discuss something else. (Mind you, I'm not trying to go into hour-long fangirl rants, maybe just max-5 minute discussions about a series.) Friend 1 will turn and answer her, then turn back to me. Then, Friend 2 will ask a deeper question about the same thing, rinse and repeat. I used to just put up with it and be all "Uwah I was talking...:blubber: Please let me finish one sentence..." But now it's just to the point that I go "I WAS TALKING, STOP INTERRUPTING ME, WE WILL FINISH TALKING IN A MOMENT. :untrust:" And then whenever I try to point out something, Friend 2 will stop me mid-way and point out the same thing. She's not a bad person, but GRRR. I'm totally NOT right here.

As many others have said, I hate this too. :/ Although I love my friend, she does this pretty much 95% of the time. I usually end up asking her 20 + questions about her, because she never asks anything about me and my life in general. :(

Although I must say, it is quite funny watching two people who like to talk about themselves all the time try to have a conversation with each other. :)

Other pet peeves:

-- When a group of people stand in front of an entrance or door, to the point where you can barely get through. Then they proceed to give you a nasty look, like your the one who is doing something wrong, when they're the ones who picked a stupid spot to Jabber with their friends.

-- dull pencils. This one maybe a little weird, but I hate writing with a pencil that is dull. I always have to keep it sharp and pointy. (which is probably why I use mechanical now)

-- People who like to constantly tap on tables, books etc.

-- When people are overly attached to their cellphones. I hate this when I am hanging out with someone, and they proceed to text and check their cellphone every 5 seconds. I miss the days when I could just hangout with a person and it would be only them and myself. :(

-- Lastly, people using LOOSE for LOSE. :angry: No, it's not LOOSE weight, it's LOSE!!!!!!!!!!!! I see this all the time and it bugs the crap out of me.

Me: Just one roommate, and i don't think she'd mind
Friend: Wait, where do you live!? I thought you lived on campus
Me: Yes?
Friend: Then i couldn't stay with you >_> Its against the rules
Me: ...who said?
Friend: Well, i guess no one.
Me: ...then you didn't know it was against the rules...

.....its like... he didn't just ASSUME it was against the rules. He decided it was against the rules on his own assumption then said it was fact. I HATE THAT SO MUCH. Its one thing if he had said "Isn't that against the rules?" But no. He said "Thats against the rules." as if he knew. But he didn't, obviously, and was wrong.

I hate that... so much. HUGE PEEVE EUHHH

People who absolutely MUST be "in the know" about everything.

No matter what the conversation is about or how little interest they have in it, they immediately jump into every conversation with "Oh! I know about that!" or "I've heard of that!"

They'll go on acting a part of the conversation unless you ask them ANY question about the subject at hand to reveal that they really have no idea what you're talking about.

ex. Friend 1: "I want to cosplay Celes this winter."
Me: "Oh, you'd be a great Celes."
Friend 2 (who has never played a FF game in her life): "Yeah, you would! I love her, she's so pretty!"
Me: "Do you even know who Celes is?"
Friend 2: "Yeah... she's from Final Fantasy, she's that one with the fancy costume."
Me: "Which Final Fantasy?"
Friend 2: ".... seven?"
Me: "What color is her hair?
Friend 2: "..."

My best friend does it constantly on everything ranging from wine to endangered species to games and comic books and it drives me up the dammned wall.

If you don't know -- don't act like you know. If you NEED to be part of every conversation, ask questions about things you know jack shit about, don't just assume everyone will think you're a goober for not knowing about and being interested in everything they do or are.

The list is utterly endless, but I'll highlight a few:

Written/Spoken

The constant misuse of you're/your and they're/their/there and two/too/to. I actually pronounce all of them differently except for two/too/to, so when I read what someone has written on a forum (not this one, because I've not been here long, just in general) I get a verbal stutter in my head and have to say, "Wait, that's not right, what?"

The constant misuse of idiomatic expressions and general phrases. Like, "Remotely close". That doesn't even make sense. You can't be remote and close. Remote is the opposite of close. Or, "Have your cake and eat it, too." The phrase is, "Eat your cake and have it, too". The first makes no sense, obviously you'd have the cake and then eat the cake. You can't eat the cake and then still have the same cake, though, unless you've got a TARDIS.

The term "irregardless". It's not a word. Saying it makes you sound like a twit, and the ONLY time people ever say it (to me) is when they're trying to get uppity, and that is such an argument nullification that I just tune them out and go the rest of my day with the notion that they're total toolsheds.

Habits

Nail biting, mouth-breathing, chewing with your mouth open (are we four?), constant tapping, rapping, leg-shaking, lip-smacking - repetitive noises that people make. But the worst of all:

SPACE INVADING

Why is it that some people feel the need to hover within three inches of me when they're talking to me? Do I smell like freesia or lilac, honey and sun (http://cleoland.pbworks.com/w/page/10373763/Twilight#Freesia)? I mean, what is the BFD? And it isn't just me - I see it happen to people all over the place. Look, I don't know you from Adam, so why you're within kissing distance, I'm really not sure of, but when I turn my body away and have to stick a damn knee out to keep you from getting closer? That's a hint, Chester.

I think I should've rather said 'people smoking', I have nothing against the people but I am very allergic to the smoke or asthmatic (they never find anything in hospital checks so I don't know), and whenever I have to inhale even a bit of cigarette smoke I get all shaky and can't breathe well, and that lasts for a long time. It's just the things it does to me that make me dislike it so much.

It's okay to tell a smoker they're wrong, ban them doing shit in public places, and constantly belittle them but it's not okay to tell someone to put down the fork and shut their pie-hole. Standards much? It's really no ones business if someones smoking 6 packs a day or eating nothing but cake, get over it. You don't need to put yourself into other peoples lives. They have the right to stand on the street and puff away or light up in the goddamn SMOKING SECTION at a restaurant.

500 pound people who eat 6 big macs a day are killing themselves just as fast as chain smokers, but smokers are easier to target because they're killing everyone else around them as well. that's why i don't feel so bad smoking around other smokers but generally refrain around those who don't... and i never smoke around my kid

When I make up words.
"Those are lies and blander!"
NO, I REALLY DON'T KNOW WHERE BLANDER CAME FROM.

When my father is in the bathroom for fifteen minutes, and I am waiting. Waiting in pain and fear that my bladder might explode.

Pee anxiety. I must pee before we leave ANYWHERE. Otherwise I am a nervous wreck and I can think about is that.

When I hop into the shower, and there is a spider staring right at me. I don't CARE if this is a warm sanctuary for you, meet your death of a shampoo bottle to the face while I scream like a little girl.

Extremely negative people. I understand, your life sucks and so does everything else in the world. COOL, stop ruining my happy mood.

When Stephen Colbert is upset. I saw his 11 o' clock show this evening (Reruns everyday) and in the first couple minutes he wasn't in character. He was paying his respects to the people who lost their lives in the Tucson shooting, and to the Congresswomen. Then he somewhat joked on how we shouldn't blame anyone but the crazy shooter, and it went to scenes of everyone blaming everybody. Afterwards he said, "Well, someone tell me who did it, because I feel like a fucking idiot." or something among those lines.... You could tell he felt disgusted that so soon people were quickly blaming others... And at the end of the show he just jumped out of his chair and went backstage quickly. Usually he stays and waves goodbye really cheerfully. You know you fucked up when Colbert is upset over this and not making any jokes.
...Just.... Really sad. :lost:

Republicans VS. Democrats
Can't we all just get along? Nothing EVER gets done because you two parties are at each other's throats so damn much! x_x I am so sick of it.

Tripping and falling on ice. Guilty of doing it this morning... I fell pretty hard too. I kinda hurt my left arm and I have scrapes all over my hand. Cars were slowing down to make sure I was standing back up. D'x

EDIT;

When people give me crazy looks when I say I love the smell of cigar smoke. You know the brand with the owls on it? I love that smell. My Grandpa would smoke it all the time when he was alive, and when I was smaller he baby sat me a lot. It's such a calming smell, but probably because it reminds me of my Grandpa, a lot.
Teehee, although I remember sometimes I would fake a cough so he would be like, "Are you okay, Sweety?" and put out his cigar or open a window... <333

Agreed on all of them. Though chewing gum doesn't tick me off, long as they're not making that cow face when they chew it.
But yeah. From age three I was reading and writing, and got correct English mercilessly drilled into me. Asa result, I DO NOT tolerate people who type like "OmFg Lolz u r 2 kyute"....
UGH. I've blocked people on msn for it.

And birds, ohhhhh yes. I just about belted a kid who did that to me in the park last summer. I love birds, birdwatch and have a big set of birdfeeders. And frequently feed birds and ducks in the park and such (the pigeons around here have gotten SO tame. They'll eat off your lap if you sprinle some crumbs around ^^. Lol, I drew a crowd once by getting a pigeon to perch on my lap and eat a bagel out of my hand)
It's obvious I'm feeding the birds, so why the hell do you feel the need to run through them and scare them off? Do I look at you eating and then run into your table, sending you flying and too freaked out to eat again? No. Don't do it to the damn animals.

1) Lip smacking. I hate, hate, HATE when people smack their lips while chewing. It's disgusting and a sign of bad manners. I have a co-worker who does this and I have to put in my earbuds whenever she's eating something, I just cannot stand the sound. You would think that a woman in her fifties would know better.
2) While driving, people who pull out in front of you, or cut you off, then drive reallllly sllloooowwww. Gah, this pisses me off! If you get in front of me, then speed it up!
3) Also while driving, people who don't use the effing turning lane. Yea, that middle lane that has the curvy arrows in it is there for a reason!!!
4) On a very personal level, it really bugs me when people assume that because I'm hispanic, I speak spanish. It's really frustrating because I work with the public, and have had co-workers ask me to act as translator. I've never once said I am fluent in spanish; quite the opposite. So why the hell do you automatically assume that I understand what the hell someone is saying when it just sounds like gibberish to me? I don't automatically assume that someone of german descent speaks german, so don't assume the same thing about me.

I think I'd better stop now, because I can feel my heart rate going up. Feels good to get all that off my chest though.

Got another one related to my prior post; when the neighborhood brats think it's a great sport to chuck mud and snowballs at my bird feeders. WITH BIRDS ON THEM.
They're lucky as hell I'd chucked out the dirty mopwater beforehand, or it would've come right back down on them. I swear, kids in this area have NO respect (I live in the bad neighborhood, where it's mostly welfare rats...).
(There's another pet peeve. I absolutely despise kids. Especially badly behaved and/or loud ones.)

My brother goes through the same stuff sometimes. He has a very light complexion, and actually had blonde-ish hair and gray eyes when he was born (though they both darkened as he got older). I can only imagine what my nephew will go through when he gets older. My sister-in-law is white and he inherited her blue eyes and dirty blonde hair. No way people are going to think he's half hispanic. Hell, my parents (both fairly "brown") already get strange looks when they babysit him and take him out to stores. A lot of "did you kidnap that baby" stares.

I have had people scream at me, because I wouldn't speak to them in Spanish. On the same scale, my mother has been told she's a horrible person and parent, because neither I, or my two siblings, speak Spanish, so she's obviously not teaching us to be proud of our culture and heritage. I'm Native American, and the only other blood I have is Norwegian and French/German. And yes, while I'd love for everyone to be color/race-blind, I'm proud of my heritage.

1.xbox live- lets face it, it sucks

2.when people mistake the "baby's changing room" for a "fitting room" at new york and company.

3. the jersey "poof" or the "bump it" ( can i say more, it looks straight out of mars attacks):alien:

4. when your in the bathroom fixing yourself up ( i.e your hair and makeup) and having strange people starring at you when they use the sink next to you, then when you notice that they are doing it they pretend that they weren't doing it in the first place. really.. you were just looking at me for the longest ever and then i return a glance at you and then you freak out....:eeek:

5. Shutter sun glasses in broad day light, it just look so weird if your at h.e.b with them on.

6. Unnecessary loud music that from 1967, i mean yea " i am the walrus" was cool long time ago but when played on a acoustic guitar at all hours it makes me want to go rouge.

7. i hate it when arcades are replaced by horrible cheap and tacky clothing stores. I love fashionable wear but its like insult to injury when a nice arcade is replaced by a not even decent clothing store boutique.

Adding to the recent race =/= language topic, I've had plenty of experiences where people tend to mistaken me as Chinese instead of Filipino. It's not necessarily a pet peeve of mine actually since I'm just naturally passive UNLESS if the people are clearly making a mockery of it. >___<; Thankfully, it was just that one time in France and I'm living in the liberal and more open-minded Bay Area so I'd be more surprised if I encounter something similar to what happened in France.

I do have a pet peeve on those who act very inappropriately within the environment they're in. And this mixes in with inappropriately loud people that don't seem to know and understand when to shut up and just be quiet so they wouldn't have a bad impression on people. (Double points if I happen to associate with them in anyway.) D:

Okay. I'm just going to say that I can't tell AT ALL what country of origin Asians are from. While I would never say something like that lady said, I can't tell the difference. So you can't get completely angry if people can't tell you apart from Chinese/Korean people and other countries that I am too lazy to name now.
I don't want to come off as rude, but growing up in a town of mostly white people and barely any variety of races... I don't see many Asians up close. ^^;; If there is a difference, I can't tell. c:
It's the same for white people. I can't tell if you're Russian or English. All you people look the same!

So you expect others to automatically understand your shortcomings?

How about this: don't bring up race at all when it's not a necessary part of a conversation. If you absolutely find yourself unable to do so, keep it broad. Try "Asian" and go no further than that unless instructed.

No, I wouldn't expect people to automatically understand me.
And of course, I never bring up race when I'm talking to someone. o_e I don't see why you ever would unless you were close to that person and they wouldn't mind. It's extremely rude to say that otherwise.
Anyway, I didn't mean it as I'll openly say that I don't know what race you are because I don't know. Or that it's right to just call someone Chinese, Korean, or Japanese because that's what you think they are.
I meant it as, don't get mad at everyone who can't tell what race you are. Because I can't, and I can't help it. It's not like I'm saying it to be rude. I just can't tell the difference. I'm ignorant, I can't tell apart anyones race except for White, African, Indian, or Asian. It's not like I'm like this with just Asians. It's the same with the Whities, and I am white.

If you go by Whedon 'verse, the "basic" language would be Chinese - and economically speaking, I'd daresay it's the closest to accurate. I do think it's pathetic that American public schooling stops at French and Spanish, and only requires a meager semester of it to complete your courses. I struggled to locate areas here where Russian and German were taught, and when I did the classes were incomprehensibly expensive. I ended up with college French and Spanish (Castellano) but compared to what I'd know if I'd been taking an alternate course since gradeschool, it's utterly pathetic.

And for what it's worth, I've been able to accurately differentiate between the Asian racial divisions for a while, but a lot of it came from working at a place that catered to the city's Vietnamese, Filipino, Japanese, and Chinese population. The Koreans not so much because where I lived didn't have a big concentration of them, but to me they actually do look different. My boss was Chinese and his best friend was Vietnamese; we had customers who literally couldn't tell them apart, and I could never see how. Their names alone were culturally different, but Christ, everything about their facial structure was different, too. And holy shit, I've never seen a Filipino person who could have been mistaken for a Japanese person.

I don't fault people for not being able to identify it, because you're absolutely right - it doesn't matter, it shouldn't matter, and for people who grow up in whitebread communities with very little cultural diversity, of course they've just never been around enough people to know. In polite conversation the issue of race shouldn't ever come up, but I can understand curiosity which shouldn't be mistaken for ignorance, but there are ways to ask without sounding like an asshat. (King of the Hill - "So are you Chinese or Japanese?" "We're LAOTION. WE'RE FROM A LAND-LOCKED COUNTRY IN SOUTHEAST ASIA!" "....so, are you Chinese or Japanese?")

Could I tell the difference between a Russian, Ukranian, Latvian, Estonian, or Lithuanian? Without at least a few months of exposure to the different people from the cultures, hell no. But on the map the countries are all super side-by-side, so I mean if I were the normal standard of person who didn't know and didn't care, I could definitely see myself making some ignorant comment.

I tend to use bad grammar while speaking ;A; But thats because English isn't my first language, and i don't have the best grasp on it. I can speak in mostly perfect grammar online, though, since i have a chance to look it over before i hit reply. But IRL, i tend to... grammar fail.

^ i guess getting old is not on your to-do list O x O", old people can't help but to have hands like that. hmm now that i think about it; i think there was a seinfield episode about that,except it involves a female with "man hands".

oh yea i wanted to add some more since this thread is going so well

1. People eating grapes at the super market that are not for samples.
-----adding to that--------
b. People opening up merchandise at the grocery store and eating it in plain sight. ( O x O") its so bold.......

2. Those one plain white beer shirts that have the typical female in a bikini that over aged orange bald tan men like to wear at a juice shop or the beach. Lets face it; its not cute and it just screams douche.

3. Babies that stare at you, (" O x O)-------(o x O) i think it can be pretty creepy especially when they look mad for some reason.

5. That one guy called "the situation" from the MTV show Jersey Shore. Hes like thirty or something right? Hes a little bit old acting like that don't you think. Kinda embarrassing to as he constantly refers to him self in third person.

6. People who walk too slow in a public place like the mall, its annoying. And its really funny when they know someones trying to get around them and when they eventually do get around them the people who were walking slow start to have a attitude problem.

In all honesty i feel sorry for the people who think anyone from jersey is like that. i mean i bet it sucks completely; its rather sad that it only had to take eight people who act crazy/trampish/and trifling twenty four seven to set a new "stigma/stereotype" of how people are there. But
*puts on devil advocate hat*- i still enjoy watching people make total asses of themselves. some times i wonder what are they thinking?

You should delete them as a friend and they shouldn't be able to tag you.
After all, if you have them blocked and don't want them to contact you, why keep them on your friends list?

um, she hasn't been on my friends list for 3 months now. like i said before, i think fb has a bug that doesn't let you actually delete people

Yes! Even worse when all they ramble about are internet memes (In *real life*, which makes it even worse than on the internet to begin with).

I entertain vague imagery of them jumping off the bridge over the local river, it makes me feel warm inside and blocks off the inanity.

That I am constantly being reminded I am sharing close proximity with my mother.

Not by other people but by the fact I wake up to her on the phone (she works from home) and go to bed to her snoring and telling me to turn out the light on my side of the room. That's fine, your trying to sleep and what not. Gravy.

However she goes to sleep at like, 8pm @___@ here I am all happy on my laptop playing some Clock Tower and BAM. There she is. 8pm. "Turn off the lights. Turn off the sound. I can hear the keyboard clicking. Is that light on low? Did you go use the bathroom,it was loud" After 3 months within 3 feet of each-other for most of the day I am starting to get quite agitated. Little things like her constantly dramatically sighing very loudly in the complete silence are starting to become things that piss me off. Even the sound of her voice has made me cringe lately.

I know it's not easy for her either, but sometimes I wish she'd get the hint and just kind of piss off for a little bit. Go work at the office for a few hours or something christ just go awwwaaaay. I'll go to my friends house, my boyfriends place, out with the home-slices, even my sisters and her husbands house and won't want to go back home just because I am getting so goddamn sick of not having privacy.

2. I am on the boat with correct spelling and grammar while texting. Poor punctuation gets abused and abandoned.

3. Lastly, I wish that I could do anything and not worry even slightly about the view of the public "eye." For example, I wish I could cosplay, but I would have to get over the fear of embarrasment.

The commercial will be effective because people will think if they have sex they're going to end up sounding like those two.

Speaking of Bristol and her lack of acting, did anyone see the clips from the Secret Life of an American Teenager or whatever it was she was on? Girl sounded like she was reading (poorly) from a line feed on a teleprompter off-camera.

^^ sorry for the double post

I guess your not a fan of larry david ,because he just about does everything on purpose when it comes to embarrassing people. He loves to "tap" or "mash" that button that everyone doesn't want pushed. Oh and i don't think you have to worry too much of what the "public eye" thinks when you go out and cosplay. Im not saying everywhere is a ok place to do it, but heck i saw a cosplayer at wall mart just a few weeks ago( and this is wal mart we are talking about) and he was pretty safe. Sure he got some awkward stares but those were stares of obvious curiosity really, not the stares of "i'm going to shank you and burn your polyfiber wig." Just go do it with a group of people if your really want too.

---back on topic about my pet peeves------

1. i can't stand it when people at subway mess up a simple order, especially when im right in front of them.

2. Juggalos- its more like jugga-no no's if you ask me; i saw some the other day at the most un-likely place; Olive Garden ( O x O). They actually let the people in even though one was in face paint. All i can say is that babies cried, women clutched their purses even more than usual, and i was slightly annoyed. They look freakin crazy with that face paint and their loud sailor talk.

3. peggy hill from "king of the hill". Not only does she butchers the Spanish language effortlessly but shes just plain weird to me, especially her enthusiasm. Where does grandma hair get this all from?

4. The fact that it's supposed to be weird if your a girl and you play bayonetta. I own, enjoyed, and played that game. It was a great game! The epic mythology looking statue monsters, the bird like angels, and the game play itself was excellent. Its not just purely fanservice, it's just a new creative way of getting things done like a true bad ass. And the game itself is not at the least bit easy; not unless you play on "Mummy Mode", otherwise can be really really hard in general. Ive still have yet to complete the game with pure platinum across the board.

5. Birds ( except owls)- i hate them, or shall i say "loathe" them. They're annoying with their tweeting and squawking day in and day out! Especially where i reside. It makes me want to shake that horrid tree of their's in till their nest falls and breaks apart.:miffed:

6. Gamestop customers and the people who are at the manga/ dungeons and dragons strategy guide section in Barnes and Nobles- I know this itself is weird, but it seems that if your dress nicely, a great looking female, and not exactly wearing "gamer or anime gear" you are looked at like a total menace to society if you come in. And they often go in total man bear pig mode. The glares only cease to continue when you have bought 12-14 games at gamestop or a hell of a lot of mangas at that section of barnes and noble. After that they have a total "what happened" look on their face.:untrust:

Boy: *Does salute*
Me: Dude, knock it off. Some people will find that offensive.
Boy: Oh yeah, well this is America, freedom of religion!
Me: And I have the right to to tell you that you should stop doing it.

Couldn't do that, our school is small and everyone knows everyone. I'm not Jewish and I don't have any family members that are Jewish.

Late to the party here, but you certainly should insist that something gets done. I was lucky to have a principal in high school that was zero-tolerance for bullying and racism; in history class for speaking basic German and taking an interest in the German perspective of history (and can I note, this wasn't even WWII history, but WWI?), I got one idiot who'd bullied me since elementary school yelling Heil Hitler and nazi-saluting me in the hallways.
...he made the mistake of doing that once when my boyfriend at the time was beside me, and he was lucky to get away without injury. But then the idiot tried to get HIM in trouble, and it basically went as "So you CALLED HER A NAZI, in FULL VIEW of the school and her boyfriend, HEIL-HITLERED, and expect to get away scott-free and have HIM in trouble? GET THE F*CK OUT OF MY OFFICE, AND YOU'RE OUT OF THIS SCHOOL IF YOU DO THAT AGAIN!"
Needless to say, I was very happy.
Principals strictness varies school to school, but you can certainly insist that something gets done. And worst comes to worst, deal with him yourself.

i notice that the people on the show "always" tend to "forget" everything when they're drinking that booze. I don't think the women in that show also really "understand" of how being like that can get them hurt. And we all know what i mean by getting "hurt".
Regardless*dons devil advocate Top hat <--yea i got me an upgrade* I still like seeing f.u.b.a.r.b.'ed sub human microbes tearing apart each other for some horrible made up cult they call a life style. And to me G.T.L ( great tan logic) is more like G.A.L( get a life)


oh and for that person that has that jerk off going around saying "heil hitler", you need to turn his ass in. You don't necessarily have to be Jewish to have the right to be "offended". Hes not a history advocate, and hes using that hail in a belligerent way. Its not funny to say the least.

Oh, and another pet peeve; when peopel call Chinese qipao kimono.
THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING IN COMMON WITH THEM AND A KIMONO.
The collar is high, tight and buttoned, not wrapped around, the sleeves are tight and short, not wide and long, there's fasteners down the front, not a wraparound, there's a slit up the side that kimono don't have, they're CHINESE (and I'm working in a Chinese store, that alone should be a tipoff), not Japanese, and for the love of god, we label them AS "Qipao" on the sign. Are people seriously that ignorant that suddenly hanbok, hanfu, qipao and all other asian clothing that has ABSOLUTELY NO SIMILARITY to a Japanese kimono is suddenly a kimono?

Rude is it might seem, I never let people walk by calling them "kimono" without correcting them abruptly and explaining the HUGE difference. I hate ignorance, especially when it's such a huge glaringly obvious difference that takes one about two seconds to notice.

In that case with hanfu, I WAS a little exaggerated. Hanfu were technically the origin o the kimono and have some similarity, but they're certainly not the same thing. Still, my pissery with people confusing vastly different clothing like a qipao/cheongsam with a kimono remains. Oh, and when people can't even pronounce kimono either when they do it. It rakes my nerves every time I hear people do it in this drawling "Key-mona" way. Sure, not all of us can nail a flawless japanese acent, but can you at LEAST say the "o" at the end?

That's odd. Why is it free there? Why is it free at all? 0_0Well the idea in Iran is transwoman = gay men. So they pay the costs for transwoman to have SRS so they become straight women.*

As for my statement of why it should be free or not as expensive as it because of the reoccurring cost of HRT, time invested to even transition, and I generally believe that SRS shouldn't always be labeled as an "optional" surgery therefore some or all of the costs of surgery can be picked by the insurance company or by a UHC system.

* = There's an article on this, but I need to dig for it.

Edit: Actually the Iran government pays half for the surgery, which is still more than the US does.

1. People who think they can get away with being an asshole by calling it "being an honest and blunt person". No. You're just an asshole.

2. Products that LIE. My wig i ordered for my Dollfie was supposed to have side swept bangs. Well, when i put it on her, the bangs wouldn't sweep to the side no matter how hard i tried :'| So i ended up cutting them bluntly. They look good, but its still like... rage DX And the socks... go up to her knees. Not over them :'| Stupid socks.

3. When i accidentally type ;p; instead of lol. That looks like a crying face XD;;

My cousins. They are from Jersey. They CONSTANTLY quote Jersey Shore like it's the damn bible. They say it's a "jersey thing" after everything, even when it DOES NOT make sense./ I accidentally hit one while I was backing out the truck. When I realized who it was, I rolled down the window and instead of apologizing, said

"It's a Connecticut thing." and drove off

Well, I somewhat do this. I have different levels of love for people.

Such as, my online friend i've known 6 years. I tell her i love her. Its not like... i'll marry her sort of love. Its a different level.

My current girlfriend, i say "I LOVE YOU!" when she does something cute, since its so cute its like... the kind of love for a small kitten. But i haven't like... told her i loved her in that 'romantic' sort of way.

^^ i guess me being a brutally honest person that i am makes me qualify for being a ass hole when it comes to what i think about things ( this is said especially when it comes to me around christmas time, i really dislike the whole idea of santa claus and not being honest to your kids about how the presents really got there); but if i may interject, i only think being an ass hole is appropriate if you really need to be an ass hole. So in other words theres a time and a place sorta speak. I think ; for example, if there's a person who's just spouting a type of confident ignorance , then i think they should be stoped, regardless if the person whos stopping them is a jerk ass or not. but thats just my opinion on this.

but i agree on you about the false advertisement, i once ordered a box set online. This to my understanding was supposed to be a box set that has never been opened, however when i received the product , i was peeved when i discovered that it was open and that one of the disk was missing. I think i cried that day > x < but i got over it.

No, i completely understand that. Sometimes theres a time and place to be bluntly honest, even if you come out as an asshole. What i hate is when people are always like this 100% of the time. It makes you wonder if being so negative and rude fuels them... i can't understand how anyone can do that.

Like, if you see someone draw a picture and they're proud of it... how hard is it to say "Good job"? Even if you think it sucks. I would say they did a good job, etc, because it really doesn't matter to me. One of the people who i'm talking about would probably tell said person it sucks, and they should give up art.

Assholes. Wtf.

Assholes. Wtf.Sometimes, the truth hurts? I'm all for people pursuing their passion. A stick figure drawing will likely not be very appealing artistically no matter how much effort was put into it. That being said, I'd never tell someone to stop doing something they're passionate about. I'm generally a very supportive person. =) I'd likely try to offer some constructive criticism or possible advice to improve whatever they're doing. (I'm a horrible artist, btw. XD I can barely draw stick figures.)

Also... Pet peeves... Along with my "stupid people" peeve... People that should not be using computers and insist on coming into the store for free tech support. I love helping people, but it gets kind of old seeing the same person over and over for simple stuff.

Pet peeve/Rant time.
It's not like I enjoy it when we put down our animal hospital's cats. Stop acting like I'm a horrible person or that my workplace is a horrible place too. I don't think you realize the situation. Chikita (The cat) was an evil monster. We couldn't pick her up and put her in her cage without her completely attacking us. She was de-clawed. If we let her go she'd be dead pretty soon in a worse way than being put to sleep. She hated people. No one wanted her. We had her for six months. She attacked our other cats for no reason. And it wouldn't make a damn difference if we gave her to a humane society around here, they'd kill her right away too. And no one is going to drive her 3+ hours away to take her to a humane society that is no kill. What, you want her to sit in a cage her entire life? She wouldn't be adopted, no one wants a cat that attacks you when you try to pet her.
I love cats, I love animals. It's fucking ridiculous when you say we didn't do enough to save her. SHE COULDN'T BE SAVED. We tried desperately for six months before we reluctantly called it quits. And then you say how we're horrible monsters. DO YOU REALIZED HOW HORRIBLE IT WAS FOR US?! My mom wouldn't go to work that day because she was going to be put down! We were all crying for a cat that hated us! We love animals, we want the best for animals. Her death was so sad for all us. HOW DARE you say we're monsters for doing it.
I could continue. But I'm going to ask a question. What's better? A cat that dies in a humane way so she doesn't suffer and falls "asleep", or a cat living in a cage for the rest of it's entire life?
I just hate it. It's always a lose/lose in these situations. We have to make a tough decision and no matter what decision we make we always look like monsters.
I've just heard so many people saying how horrible it was of us, and I'm so sick of it.

^From reading your situation it seems that there was nothing that could be done when it comes to that specific cat. It sounds like its feral because it refused any type of human contact, also the fact that it retaliates all the time belligerently just shows that the cat had to be put down. I think the people who confronted you ignorantly were wrong for that. People; in general tend to "humanize" animals, and when that happens they sometimes don't have a clear view of the problem ahead of them. This just goes to show how ignorant people can be.

T x T i will never be rid of them. the dish washer is my best friend in this sit.

ALso i hate it when people just talk out of their ass with no proven facts, its like they just elaborate and improvise in a conversation till the cows come home, when they are totally wrong about everything.

And i hate the crap betty white is getting now, i mean sure shes in just about every movie/sitcom however she still is a very accomplished actor that didn't seem to subcome to hollywood's pressure. I think people need to give her a break, shes a very funny witty lady.

And yeah, I can't sit for more than five minutes without crossing my legs. And I cross mine from ankle to knee most of the time, which requires a lotta legroom. Though I hate having to sit in a chair with no armrests even more.

- when people make judgements about you without knowing the situation you may be in.
- not using "your", "you're", "there", "their", and "they're" correctly.
- people who only use you because you have a vehicle.
- stupid people who think that it's okay for them to drive even though they're not really drunk, but they're still drunk.
- when websites lie about their products
- people who throw "i love you" around too freely
- being lactose intolerant, BUT I LOVE ICE CREAM TOO MUCH
- even though i'm an introvert and i love being alone a majority of the time, i would like to have more friends here who have the same interests as i do.
-lack of responsibility
- drivers who show off by revving their engine at the spot light
- misspelling of my name, EVEN THOUGH IT'S RIGHT IN FRONT OF THEM. it's Jasmine, not Jazmine, or Jasmin.
- people who dye their hair like 3-4 times a week and think that their hair is healthy and won't fall out.

oh! I hate liars. I don't people that lie every now and then to say...cover their ass. Take this somewhat friend of mine. He lies about EVERYTHING. And you can't tell him anything. If I went up to him and said: Hey Patrick! Did you know that a planck time is equal to roughly 1/1000000 ^5 of a second and that it's only ever used when detail the first 3-4 second of the big bang to help explain the expansion rate of our universe within those 3-4 seconds? And that in 1 plank time the universe expanded from the size of an atom to the size of a golf ball and that that expansion rate is the same as a golf ball expanding to the size of the Earth? And that that expansion rate means the universe expanded faster than the speed of light which contradicts Einstein's Theory of relativity?

His response would be: Oh yeah! I heard about that! (being 100% serious as if he himself believes he heard that) I know that this kid knows nothing about theoretical physics but he claims to.

His big thing is about girls...he's always meeting girls, always getting with girls. We went to GenCon and while we were together not a single female talked to him. We went our separate ways one afternoon there. When we got back together suddenly all he did was talk to girls...

People like that. They annoy me. >.<

To be honest I don't like the people that say "Good job!" when someone has drawn a stick figure. That may work for kinder gardeners in their little world, but whenever one of my cousins scribbles a drawing of a cat with a square head (the girl is 12) and her father says "Great job sweety!" I think, that is really sad :/

I would never tell someone the suck, because I don't want to crash someones hopes and dreams. But i'm not going to help them build up a false confidence. I don't consider that mean, but simply honest. When giving someone a compliment it should have meaning.

ooooh, that so much. I have one "friend" who I at first liked, but then every time I met her, she seemed to be lying about every little thing. What series/games/manga she'd seen and such when it was obvious she'd never heard of them, how she was an accomplished seamstress and cosplayer BUT I'd never seen a single one of her pieces of clothing or costumes and she never gave me any help with sewing technique if I threw out a "No idea how to do this" statement, all the places she'd apparently been to and worked at (with no proof to back it up, not even a cell phone snapshot), annnnd then she says how she's got like, 1/16th native heritage so she can get tax-exempt status and then apparently will also never have to work and will just go on disability because she also has cerebral palsy (She literally said "When I'm tired, my hands shake a bit." Uh, doesn't EVERYBODY'S? That's certainly not severe enough to keep you from working a regular job.)

So yeah. I've cut her out of my life pretty quick. Lazy, deluded liars on the fast track to a life of handouts are NOT my company.

This, people who back up said liars, and people who'd steal from family.

My uncle married a woman who already had two kids years ago, and one of them is a constant liar. No matter what it is, he's the best, and he knows everything. My aunt will back him up on everything, or make up excuses for him. She's even gone as far as calling the other person a liar, even if they have solid proof of their statement. :T Most of my extended family doesn't like him, or trust him around anything we own, as he steals things, and his mother covers him on that too.

Her daughter used to be a horrible liar, too, but unlike him, she's stopped. c: She's actually pretty pleasant to be around.

Just having the name of an anime character for their name on Facebook is enough to get me peeved. Especially if the person's using it for more personal uses too. (ex: *realname* L Lawliet *reallastname* or some variation) x_x;

I think this adds more to my decision of having a separate account JUST for my cosplay/fandom for the sake of not scaring away from those not interested. :/
