I figured it may do our bodies some good to purge things that annoy us... so tell me... what really grinds your gears... (must be said like Peter Griffin).


You know what really grinds my gears...

http://blogs.messiah.edu/wp-content/blogs/39/uploads//grinds-my-gears1.jpg

When I bust my butt at work, day in and day out, as well as helping OTHERS, and they are the ones that get the glory, credit, praise for a job well done, AND a raise... THAT really grinds my gears!!!!

All of this AND said person... wouldn't have been able to complete the project at hand without me fixing EVERYTHING about it!!!

I am secure that I will keep my job which is good in this trying economy... HOWEVER, sometimes just keeping the job isn't enough, where's my slice of the pie?!?!?

GAHHH! I feel a little better... now it's your turn!

When a food place I stop is out of the food I want. Example.

Last night I took the kids to KFC to pick up dinner to bring home. It was like 5:30pm. So I go in order the chicken and the sides and the guy looks at me and says "we are out of mac and cheese"

Right then I wanted to reach across the counter, grab the teenage punk by the scruff of the neck and scream in his face "WTF Do you mean you are out of Mac & Cheese! Its only 5:30 in the afternoon! You're open another 5 hours at least, How the HECK Did you Run out of a freaking Major Side Item you dumb mother effer!"

Of coarse I didn't, cause my daugthers were with me....but man, that really Grinds My Gears.

Well, that's the manager's fault, not the peon at the register.

When I was in college there was a fried chicken place in the University Center food court that was always out of chicken.

GAH - This really grinds my gears too!!! I know it isn't the cashier or serves fault, but I get this a lot at Chili's I go there for ONE THING... and ONE THING ONLY... Southwest Egg Rolls... and not once but three different occasions they've been out of them... HELLOOOO if they are THAT popular, keep them on back order and make sure you HAVE THEM!!! If they move that fast, you'll use them up... if not call me I'll come eat them... and they're FROZEN, it's not like they make it fresh each day!!! Give me a break! That really grinds my gears! (thank you for playing!)

People who think they 'KNOW IT ALL' , really chap my butt.

I see it constantly on these boards. I admit my knowledge of football is limited compared to some other members, and that is one reason why I come here... to gain more insight and to LEARN more about the game (esp. the draft..which I am not very astute on). But some of these people are so darn stubborn and never seem to listen, with an open mind, to any opinion that differs from their own. Is it really such an awful thing to admit that SOMETIMES, someone else might have a little more insight into the topic being discussed, than you do???? It all comes down to pride. It takes humility to admit things such as ....you are right and I am wrong..etc. Too many egos at war on these boards. *It doesn't just happen on these boards but in life in general..I am just using that as an example.

Btw..sorry for what is happening with you at work, kitten. I understand, all too well, what you are going through.

Ugh, I hate parking lot stalkers!!! I would rather walk from the end of the lot to avoid the hassle of waiting behind them, waiting for someone else, that's taking 5 minutes extra to put on lipstick or check out themselves in the mirror or choose a new CD before pulling out of the spot... blech!

The "cash check" at the Walmart check out line. That grinds me gears.

You know, you've found a line that doesn't seem so bad, you start putting your full cart worths of groceries on the belt and then the person in front of you pulls out either a Pay Check or a State Check and starts the process of cashing it and paying for the items they just bought.

Holy Crap....I just spent nearly an hour in this store, bumping carts, looking for food items you've moved again to make it more efficient, waiting in food aisles behind little ole ladies that park their cart in the middle of the lane and slowly read the ingrediants of canned veggies, had to battle for the last ripe bunch of bananas with a kid that just wanted to do monkey impressions, and now...at the end, you're Cashing Your Pay Check!

Dude! Get the FKC OUT OF LINE and get a mother EFFING BANK ACCOUNT Like the Rest of NORMAL PEOPLE!

I hate that so much. It really, Grinds My Gears!

What really burns my ass is after getting gas you run in to pay, trying to get in and out as quickly a possible. And some dip sh*t is at the counter with a fist full of scratched lottery tickets getting them checked for winners. Then they buy how ever many they can with the winnings and f'n stand there and scratch them off and start the whole process over. :mad:

1) People at work who sing out loud...but only know about 1/4 of the song. Nothing helps to make a good work enviroment like wanting to poke your eyeball out with a fork.

2) Drama Queens/Kings.....If you have to treat each breakup/tummy-ache/hurt feeling like you are a) dying...b) suicidal...c) both. Grow the EFF up!!!!!....When you REALLY do have the "Wolf of Problems" at your door...Noone is going to believe it...want to hear it ....or care!!!...so PRIORITIZE!!..and quit acting like its the end of the world when the you break up with "Mr. Youknewhimfortwoweeks."

UGHHHH I hate those commercials... honestly... I always say (and I get this from my father)... "He went to Jared... and paid WAY too much!!!!" - they over price everything there!!! :puke: is right!

UGH DINO!!! I feel you!!! Wal-mart is the bane of my grocery shopping days!!! We have less of that issue now that there's a money center in our wal-mart but still... it drives me crazy...

You know what really grinds my gears?
The people at walmart using coupons and lists from OTHER stores to get a great deal... I GET saving a buck... I GET using a few... but when it takes you 30 minutes to check out due to this... it's annoying as hell!!!! I think they need a specified line for this!!! OTHER STORE COUPON ISLE!

We try to avoid these at all costs - when I see a notebook in the buyers hand I know to run!!!

Oh, you are referring to using a Kmart coupon to get a better deal at Wal-mart for example?....when I first read your post I thought you were referring to people who use coupons in general..whew... :chuckle:. I was going to say....then you would HATE ME lol...because I use coupons ALL the time...at the grocery store especially.

You know what really grinds my gears? Is people just cruising in the fast/passing lane on the highway holding up traffic for miles. It is not a flipping cruising lane, it is a passing lane. Get the EFF over and get in the lane you belong. When I pass you, I will get the EFF over and let the people faster than me pass. I guess spending so much time in Germany/Europe has made me realize how idiotic American drivers are!

Hope I don't offend any fast lane hanger outers!

No no... Steelcitygal - COUPONS GOOD! Holding up the line with sale pages from another store... BADDDD!!! I love coupons! Usually they are quick and easy though... scan, type in something and DONE... usually the sale papers call the manager into play, the waiting for approval etc!!!

I AGREE 100% SCSTILLER... AND what else grinds my gears... PEOPLE THAT DON'T USE BLINKERS!!!!!!!!! And those that chat on their cell phones and drive slow and horribly as a result!!!

Speaking of which...I rarely go to Wal Mart but have to occasionally. One thing I have noticed is that a good portion of people that shop at those stores lack basic hygiene. You would think “Well, I’m running to the store, at least I will throw on a hat and use some deodorant”. I mean, I have done the disheveled 3:00am shopping trip before and looked worse for wear, but when your at Wal Mart with the family on a Saturday afternoon and you look like Tom Hanks after a year on that island in Cast Away.

People are slobs…

Buh! Tell me about it!!! Although I will say... it's nice to know I won't go noticed if I go to Walmart hung over, drunk, dirty, or fresh from a canoe run... some people at the walmarts in my neck of the woods may even begin to think I'm coming to them simply by walking by covered in creek water *shivers* :puke:

They definitely don't win any prizes for beauty in the Florence/Muscle Shoals Walmarts here in Alabama!

AHHHHH!!!! That used to be one of my daily complaints! I used to work in a little gas out in the sticks in high school and EVERY DAY I would have to kick this one guy out away from the counter because he would constantly do that exact thing. If you just let him do it, he would stand there for a half hour or so like he was the only person in the world. He would try this routine every day.

I had one other guy that would come in 2 days a week (at least) on his lunch break and get lottery tickets and then buy more with the winnings. He at least had the decency to take the tickets out to his car and scratch them off and then walk back in to get more.

because sometimes you just gotta suck it up and let 'er rip. you can only hold it for so long, and you know if you get up to go to the bathroom you will drop an aerosol ass bomb on somebodys lap.

oh well, its not like you will ever see the people again, and it softens the blow if you chuckle afterwards.

What really grinds my gears is when I go to get a glass of juice or tea from the fridge and there is none left in the carton/pitcher. My fiance has a HORRIBLE habit of leaving none/or a few drops of said liquid instead of just throwing it away or making more. My Dad would do the same thing growing up. He had both my Mom and I ragging on him about it constantly though and he still did it. I think it's has to be some kind of male conspiracy though.

what REALLY grinds my gears is...

when my shoe comes untied in public...

i get the hiccups for 4 hours straight...

i ask someone the time and someone replies with the time...yet, someone out of the blue correct them on the "real" time. example: "hey Joe, what time is it?" "well, Bob...it's 7:25." then Glen from out of nowhere says, "actually, it's 7:23!" i want to punch Glen in the neck! haha!

when there is always ONE person who hates the movie and tries to convince people it sucked by saying, "it was GAY!" i'm not a fan of passive agressive gay bashing..period.

people who SAY they guessed the ending to "The Sixth Sense."

people who act like they don't fart...come on idiot...you know the truth! haha!

when you are texting or talking to someone on the phone and the person you are with just HAS to know who it is you are texting/talking to and they won't stop until you tell them the entire conversation between you and this person! UGH!

when you have to explain your jokes to people...stupid!

when you have a hole in your sock and you didn't know it until you step in a puddle.

dog poop. that explains A LOT.

people who still think The Doors are amazing and the greatest band in the world. not true.

people who ask me stupid questions about my tattoos. they never go away and they ask the dumbest shit like, "does that ink in your skin keep you warm in the winter?" i said, "no moron...it's still skin!" (true story)

the worst is...people who ALWAYS have some stupid ass comment to say about the Steelers and it's out of sheer jealous and spite. if Ben throws a pick, there is always one guy saying, "how about that Ben interception!?" i say "how about you go f*ck hot tar you jag off!?"

the list can go on and on...

George Bush.

EX: "do you know a Clark Johnson?" they reply "no, but i know a Mark Jackson." i reply "you'r a waste of time."

when my girlfriend asks me "do i look fat in this?" and they are SWEATPANTS!!!

Thom Yorke from Radiohead...his lazy eye freaks me out.

people who didn't laugh at Joe Dirt or do nothing but quote Anchorman. ugh!

the name Donovan.

the penny.

people who put the f-word in the middle of a word. like, "the Holmes catch was incredible!" that just sounds dumb and very over the top.

it is Leonardo DiCaprio's ONE fault as an actor. i love every one of his movies, except Titanic. it was highly overrated and extremely boring. but it's special effects and it's epic nature was really good. other than that...eh. not a big deal. haha!

When a food place I stop is out of the food I want. Example.

Last night I took the kids to KFC to pick up dinner to bring home. It was like 5:30pm. So I go in order the chicken and the sides and the guy looks at me and says "we are out of mac and cheese"

Right then I wanted to reach across the counter, grab the teenage punk by the scruff of the neck and scream in his face "WTF Do you mean you are out of Mac & Cheese! Its only 5:30 in the afternoon! You're open another 5 hours at least, How the HECK Did you Run out of a freaking Major Side Item you dumb mother effer!"

Of coarse I didn't, cause my daugthers were with me....but man, that really Grinds My Gears.

Well, that's a lot of posts to read through...so if it's been said, I'll just have to accept the thrashing humbly.

When I'm watching a movie with someone and they ask what's getting ready to happen. Watch the movie and find out like THE REST OF US. It's one thing if you had to go to the bathroom and missed a scene, I'll catch you up. But what's going to happen next is going to happen NEXT.

When I'm reading a book and someone asks me what I'm reading....and then a number of other questions afterwards. If I wanted to have a conversation, I'd put the book away. If you are that interested in the book I'm reading, then go to your local library/book store and purchase the thing. There is always time to read in your day somewhere.

Last but not least...when I'm watching a movie I've not seen before and as we come up on the ending, someone "let's the cat out of the bag." Totally ruins the freaking movie for me...thanx and have a terrible day. I hope fleas from a thousand camels infest your hairy armpits. It happened while I was watching the Movie "Se7en" with Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman.

Yeah I never cared for this either. I understand wanting to have children, and I feel for women who struggle to have kids naturally, but all these hormone therapies are the reason we are seeing things like sextuplets and octuplets. It's not natural. You are endangering your own life and the childrens lives by having such a high risk pregnancy. Many of these children are born prematurely and with health problems. To me it would make more sense to adopt a child in need of a good home instead of playing the lottery with hormone therapy.

This is why I invested in a 60" 1080P HDTV, a Blu Ray player and a high end 7.1 surround system for my house.

Never again will I overpay for a theater experience again....plus, I can pause it to pee or pass out and rewind!

Im with you! I love my Man Cave! I cant remember the last time I was at the movies.

My biggest issue with her is that she already had what like 4-6 kids before this?!?! All were done through artificial insemination procedures! All were multi pregnancies... Seriously if you couldn't afford the first group why on EARTH do this again you're already a mom, and a mother to what I've heard is 3 kids with disabilities and she is already on public assistance for these kids with disabilities... now she's asking for donations... I'm sorry... that's crazy!!!

She'll have a book and lifetime movie out soon enough.. and be rich... *ROLLS EYES*

When I find a empty parking spot and I cant park in the F'er because some lazy sum bitch left thier freakin buggy in the damn parking space because they were to freakin lazy to push it to the buggy rack.

UGH I hate that too... and it's usually 10 feet from a buggy/cart return!!! A few weeks ago we parked at Wally World, and there were 4 abandon carts and I thought to myself if one of these rolls into my Jeep I'm going to be SO angry... low and behold we come out of Wally World and there is a buggy on my Jeep, it left a nice little mark but you would have thought it was a huge dent the way I went off on the slack jawed douches that shop there... not the actual person that did it just all of them in general... it TRULY grinds my gears... it's bad enough they can't put stuff where it goes, but the to have it ruin my personal property...

Or when I find an empty parking space and I cannot park in it 'cause the car next to it is taking up two spots.

Or, when I am in a space and the idiot who pulls in next to me parks so close I have to go through my hatch or the passengers side door to be able to get into my drivers seat.

Or, I remember when I first bought my car and was taking care of it I would park out in the boonies of the lot. I would have people, mind you there are 100's of empty spots around me, park next to me or just pull in front of me so I would have to back out. Somewhat humorous yes, but still flippin annoying!

Uggghhh....I have to get this out somehow, somewhere, but my neighbors really grind my gears.

We live in an apartment complex right now, and have lived here for a little over a year now. I might get loud occasionally when I'm really mad, but I know that doesn't happen to often or for too long. My neighbors on the other hand, it's day in and day out with her and the kids. I feel bad and angry at the same time. I know she's a single mom with 3 kids and a job, but I hear how she talks to her kids, and it's beyond upset, it's brutal.

Our walls are a little thin, so if someone is loud enough, you can hear every word they say. I've heard her tell her kids that she wishes she could just leave and never come back, I hear her swearing at them and telling them to just leave her alone and just all the screaming that goes on there day to day.

I hate it and wish I could just go over there and talk to her about it or do anything possible about it, but I know it's not my place. I cringe everytime I hear arguments coming from over there though.

It's just, I know how it feels to be a single mom, I was for a while before I met my fiance. I know how there are days when you feel like your head is going to burst with frustration and you just want to scream all the time. What I don't get is how someone can take out those frustrations on their children, like they are the ones responsible for you having a bad day.

I guess it boils down to how much I hate when adults act like they are children and cannot express their emotions rationally. People like that project that behavior onto their children and only add to the mounting problems our society as a whole faces.

I feel this one. When I was getting my bachelor's degree, I went to a certain small, Eastern Washington University (hint, hint), the available parking spaces were scarce, to say the least. Since I was driving almost two hours every morning to get there, I had to find parking every day. Some days, even the pay lots were full. But there was still metered parking on the street.

Anyway, these stupid people would pull up to where they were taking up two spaces, and leave four feet behind them between their car and the car behind them... enough that it made you want to throttle them, but not enough to park in.

The other thing was, I swear that some people would come back to campus on Sunday night and leave their cars parked in the free parking all damned week long. I so wanted to give those people parking tickets.

My kids already know what the answer is. It's the adults that upset me with their incessant questioning. My wife and her mom are on my "$hit list" when we watch movies from the time I press play. I tell them to shut up and watch as I'm pulling a movie out.

My ex-wife (yes, I had one of those unfortunate practice-marriages) is terrible about the books thing. She recently started asking me Harry Potter questions. Apparently, our 9 year old son is just like me. When she asks him questions, he hands her the book. GO SON!!!! So she'll call me. Freaking retarded....OK...must unclench my teeth...deep breath in...deep breath out.

Saw somewhere else about the parking spots occupied by buggies and people who drive without blinkers (or while on the cell phone and drive terribly because of it.)

Another Gear grinder for me is:

I'm driving down the interstate doing my typical 5 MPH over the speed limit. Someone comes flying by me. They get into my lane and slow down to less than what I was driving. So I get over and pass them...and then I get passed again. Pass me once and it might be because of an upcoming exit that you need to get to. Pass me a second time and you're an idiot who needs to have a little communication system implanted in my car so that I can curse you out directly explaining in the 213 different ways that you were just a moron.

I'll be driving through the typicaly "rush hour" traffic heading home. Sometimes one lane is really backed up (usually due to someone breaking down in their beater car or because some idiot wasn't paying attention and hit the guy in front of him)

I try to be nice and let one or two people through. What I hate is when I let them over and they don't give me the "wave of acknowledgement". I didn't have to slow down my lane of traffic to let you through...show some freaking respect. You are not "entitled" to being in my lane of traffic at that given point. I didn't owe you because you were either unlucky enough to be in that lane (or you weren't smart enough to notice traffic issues a mile or more down the road.) Wave your thanks and drive on.

Well, when you consider that my mother has been driving truck for Ryder for nearly 20 years now...yeah, you'll get some flack from me. I don't care what sex the driver is...stupid is stupid.

The guys who are stupid are easy to spot because they are typically very old...or very aggressively driving.

The women who are stupid are the ones who are "distracted" typically with a Cell phone in their ear, or trying to put makeup on...or do their hair...

Generally, while the numbers of stupid between the sexes might be similar, you'll "see" more dumb females, because the aggressive drivers pass you and move on...whereas you come upon the females who are slowing traffic down with their version of stupidity.

You know what really grinds my gears because I think it's completely moronic... (and I'm sorry if some of you have these... but you'll see why I hate it).

Parents that have magnets or stickers on their cars/vans/trucks proclaiming their children's names, and or sports they play (ie a baseball w/ the name Tommy and his # on it)... Or dance things w/ a girls name...

YOU DO REALIZE you're only fueling pedophiles interest with these right? All it takes is one look at your van... the number on your child's jersey, to match up Tommy... to walk up to Tommy when you're not around/watching... and take him off... It's NOT safe...

It's even worse when it's the ENTIRE FAMILY and the last name mentioned on the sticker... very unsafe for a woman driving alone... There are plenty of unmarked NON-cop cars that could pull you over and call you by your name... again... SNAGGED...

Lastly... Vanity tags that only make sense to the driver... they drive me crazy... but that's not really a safety issue... unless you're a woman... anything saying GRL, GIRL, YOUR NAME, SEXY, SASSY yada yada yada... makes you a target... for unwanted attention from crazies on the road, at rest stops (if you're crazy enough to stop at oe alone)... etc.

This is more of a warning but it really does GRIND MY GEARS!

1. When people don't use their turn signals

2. When people drive WAY below the speed limit (in good conditions) and then coast through a yellow/red light and leave YOU stranded at the stop light.

3. When things like cords, wires, coat hangers etc. get entangled or snagged in such a way that appears that it could only have been done on purpose.
