Parodies of the 12 Days of Christmas
Now I'm glad I didn't do a LOTR 12 Days of Christmas parody...

Things that irritate me:

People that poke...poke... poke me when I'm trying to work. For no reason!

Teachers who try and trick students because they think it's funny to see students make mistakes.

People who make jokes that may or may not be jokes and I never know whether people are being serious or not.

People who have irrational and half-thought through beliefs or ideas.

1. Bad music/the radio. When I want it to be quiet, I want quiet.
2. Whistling. If it's off-key, it sends me into a murderous rage for no reason whatsoever.
3. Fidgeting, but only when it affects me in some way.
4. Avril Lavigne. AHGH.
5. Bad grammar/pronounciation.
6. Breaking things because I'm too lazy to clean.
7. Lately, my hallmates. There are just times when having any people around at all drives me up the wall.

*delurks*

People who misquote movies/plays/literature.

It's "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned"!

People who eat anything loudly in an otherwise quiet room.

People who are discourteous because they are oblivious to anything other than their own concerns.

Women who wear too little clothing and then complain about how cold they are--PUT SOME DARN CLOTHES ON, YOU FOOL!

I beg to differ. "Worked" implies effort expended. [Razz] I put in nowhere near the hours actual grammar obsessives/English language majors do. I just found a subtle 'o' in that particular item more than a little humorous. [Smile]

Do you think I'm self-righteous, katharina? I apologize. I do try to keep the snarky commentary down to manageable levels.

People who try to turn every subject into a political discussion.

County singers/bands who "steal" songs from great non-country artists. Can't they just write there own dang songs?

Yes, TTT. And worse. The sniff, clearance, and then lack of release. *cringe* My brother does that about 5 times a day *puke*

People who are crappy to waiters. Be nice. We choose your food, salad, and the utensils food and drink go into. [Wink]

People who, despite the lack of traffic behind me, turn right directly in front of me. Causing me to slow to 10 miles per hour and become even more late for work.

Christmas music; it should be restricted to no more than one week before Christmas. I heard "It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas" two days before Thanksgiving. Things are better appreciated in moderation.

Overheard in a chiropractor's office:
"I'm scared, I'm supposed to have my liscence renewed this year. I don't think I can pass."
I'm sorry, I love my elders. Truely, but this is not wisdom or good example. This is irresponsible. Get off the road!!

Viruses. Namely, the flu. 5 days [Grumble]

I will refrain from making this a landmark <censored>fest. More to come.

What about Bing Crosby's Christmas songs?

On thing that ticks me off to absolutely NO END is when people type "prolly" instead of probably here on the forums. That drives me absolutely nuts! I don't really know why. [Confused]

My dad used to tease about duct tape when I was a child. He said,
"Nick, if you don't stop babbling, I'm going to put duct tape on your mouth!"
My response:
"What's duck tape? Is it some special tape for ducks? Why would use that on me?"
I didn't know it was duct tape until later.

3 inches of snow in Portland for the first time in a gazillion years that keeps me from going out shopping now that I've finally gotten PAID.

And the fact that the city is so wimpy that it owns maybe one (1) snowplow.

My sister can't sing on key, so when she sings a song I like to listen to, it drives me nuts!

I find myself intentionally playing songs that she doesn't know the words to.

chewing.

Dining with someone else is agony if they (and there is always something about it) chew with the clicking, the mashing, the mouthful-view of half-masticated foodstuff.

'tis disgusting.

People who don't signal before changing lanes/turning.

Long lines at the cash register.

Obnoxious behavior.

Vegetarians who say it is wrong to eat meat because it is cruel to kill animals, and of course animals are never cruel, we should be more like the animals. (And preditors are not cruel to the animals they tear open and eat alive?)

Hot pink.

French.

When there is a long line-up in the lane to go straight at a light, and someone cruises up the virtually empty left-turn lane to get to the front, puts on their right turn signal, and noses into the front of the straight lane.

And the people who let them in.

People who only like half-read the thread topic, and consequently, for example, post things that are perfectly rational to be irked by in a thread that's dedicated to irrational annoyances.

Sample post:

Ohh! These things bug me pretty bad.

People who trample in my flower bed because I live on the corner
People who live upstairs and move furniture all night
The guy that blew up my last apartment
People who kill people
Osama bin Laden
Michael Moore
