Another guy that works at this place gets really offended when he suggests you buy something else and you refuse. He acts like you have told him to go fuck himself. Again, he's just doing his job and making an effort, but please don't be surprised when I choose not to spend money on something simply because you think I should.
Shit, I'm turning into a total grumpy asshole.
-my over-use of hyphens and poor grammar when posting on bluelight.
-people who hold irrational and paranoid assumptions against me.
People who insist upon adding an "s" to the word "mine" when denoting possession. As in "that's mines!" It's like nails on a chalkboard.
On the same note, having someone constantly make an "mm hm" noise the entire time someone is making a presentation. I kid you not...after every sentence of a 45 minute presentation. This was a work related seminar, and a co-worker and I were about to choke the offending party...I think only knowing someone else felt exactly the same way as I did made me refrain ....
^I went on a date with somebody who was doing the "mmm hmmm." It upset me so much I jumped off the train at a random stop 10 km from home.
Speaking. I have an accent. I can't open my mouth in this state without comments, stupid jokes, people quizzing me. I want to pay for groceries not be interrogated by a Wal-Mart check out person. I hate it. I might stop speaking.
^ Your written English is fine, I don't know why you'd have any troubles face-to-face? What is your ethnicity if you don't mind sharing?
Being micromanaged at work. Like, I wish my boss would just tell me my bloody job function, and leave me to my own devices to figure out how to do that, rather than prescribing a particular routine (telling me to do X for the first hour, Y for the second, forcing me to take my break at exactly 10:00 A.M., etc.).
Can also apply to schools / professors micromanaging my studies.
My spoken English is also fine, I just sound strongly unamerican. People are overly curious which becomes rude. I literally cannot open my mouth without being asked where I'm from, why I'm in this country/state...as nauseum. I'm white French. It's beyond irritating and reduces me to tears. I just want to be left alone, not interrogated.
Thanks hydro! Nice avatar, freaked me out when I realized she was actually blinking..
Seriously, if anyone talks to a polite but accented female, please don't ask why, where, how, and get her to say various words for your entertainment. I seriously am considering going mute. I don't care if they think in sound nice, I just want to be unharrassed!
When I'm on youtube and click on a video and then quickly notice another video that looks more interesting. Hit the back button and it isn't there anymore. It happens every time and it's really annoys the crap out of me.
Eeep I crack my neck all the time
I don't like people saying "retire" to mean "go to sleep."
I hate when people say "bless you" after sneezing. A, I'm not communicating, there is no need to 'reply' to me and, B, my soul is not going to exit my nostrils. I don't really require any reaction to my nasal cavity clearing itself.
Slow Walkers! Or people that occupy the center of the grocery store Isle when they see someone they know.
If you had that much to say you'd stay in better contact. Say hi and move it along....
Okay, my pp turned into a rant. I have no regrets!
^ I hate people who don't leave room for walkers on escalators. Even worse, they act all annoyed, or just simply don't take the hint and move aside, when I walk right up to them and indicate that I want to get past. Life if way too short to stand on escalators.
Imo escalators are to make walking up stairs faster!
Really hate the single text message spread over fucking five!! Just send one or call you prick.
People who sit like pricks in public places. They lean all over the place, move around, put their feet up, spread their legs too far, sit too close or face you when they should be the bar.
I was thinking about a sunset when it happened. Maybe that's the problem.
It sounds very Zen
I think he meant 'facing' the bar.
I hate people that stand and wait for you to finish a phonecall. Rude as fuck. I stare back.

People that whip out a thick envelope of coupons when they it's their turn to pay at the grocery store checkout...
" Wait a minute, don't you take double coupons on ******, the add said you take double coupons and the manager said last week blah, blah, blah"
