Things that annoy you that really shouldn't annoy you
I'll start! I get annoyed when people call a tv show a spinoff just because it has the same actor as a previous show....

Wow, I could write a book about things that annoy me. Blush

I see the world through a different pair of glasses than most people do, so I'll keep my opinions to myself.....well, most of the time. Big Grin

When I get in queue at the bank and it seems to move much slower than the other queue. So I decide to switch queues and the one I just left starts to move. Angry

RE: Things that annoy you that really shouldn't annoy you
idiotic commercials.

I have no problem with companies trying to sell me a product. However, marketing seems to be nothing more than a competition over who can more flagrantly insult their customers' intelligence.

I think it stems from my enjoyment of a good debate, because my brain picks up on every logical fallacy in commercials. I have shouted "FALSE CHOICE" at my radio and TV on more than one occasion.

The other thing that really gets to me is when the customer is portrayed as a complete idiot. Insinuating that users of your product are below average intelligence certainly does not make me want to rush out and use it.

Exhibit A:



When I first saw this commercial, it made me want to never go to Little Caesars ever again.

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

Warning: If I rule the world post ....

Advertisements should not be allowed to feature actors masquerading as non-actors.
Actors should not be allowed to talk on behalf of the company - unless they also own the company and use its products.

I think these rules would help tremendously.

Girly don't get annoyed. Girly can't be annoyed. Tongue

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

RE: Things that annoy you that really shouldn't annoy you
I can't stand hearing people eat. Normally the TV is on, or music is playing, but when it's quiet? I'm not talking about smacking either! Closed mouth, everything. Weird muffled grunt/slithering noise Sad
And hiccups! Someone gets hiccups that won't stop, I almost want to force a lack of oxygen on them Dodgy ! I never would, ofcourse, but it's like "drink some salt water, now, dayum"!

[edit] I was always told to gargle with salt water = cures hiccups. Sometimes did, sometimes didn't.

Vinegar is the only surefire shit I've found for hiccups and I've had some nasty hours long bouts with it. Vinegar says "Sit your silly fucking diaphragm ass down now bitch!" Nothing else has ever worked.
