Good one! I'd like to augment it by saying people who use any phrase to replace punctuation; 'like' is a bad one.

Wow, some people get annoyed really easily.

I get annoyed by stupid people. You know who you are...oh wait, no you don't.

That is one of the things that annoy me.
-Another is when I have to repeat my self more than once. I may say it a second time without attitude but the third, I want to cut you!
-When I offer someone chips from a bag I have and they stick their hand in without asking and without washing their hands! That is gross and I will not eat from it after that.
-People who hurt animals.
-Oh and people who step on others to get what they want.

--------------------
A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

There are people where I work who carry on cell phone conversations from stalls in the men's restroom.

It is incredibly tempting to carry on quite loudly half a conversation of my own, inspired by a particular scene from an Austin Powers movie; however, I have managed to restrain myself so far.

There are also people who want to interrogate me in there about their home computer problems, while I'm otherwise busy. Honestly, I don't want to hear about their home computers even when I'm not in the restroom!

Oh absolutely! People who automatically assume that being in a public place means the volume at which you speak into your cellphone must be 30dB louder than if you were at home.

I talk on my cell in public sometimes. I talk in a quiet, normal voice. Guess what? They can hear me JUST FINE! People are making sure they hear themselves when they talk into their cell, but that isn't necessary.

mormons. i live in suburban davis county, utah, which just happens to be filled to the gills with them. nothing against them personally, they're generally very nice.. but god damn do they believe some stupid crap. how gullible do you have to be to believe that stuff? oh well. enough momo bashing for today.

oh! i also hate those kids with emo haircuts. anyone else remember when if you were a boy and you looked like a girl, you got your ass beat? nowadays, if you don't look like a girl, you're unfashionable. dumbasses. get a haircut, and stop listening to whiny music.

i feel you. when microsoft released Service Pack 2 for XP, i was a tier 1 tech on the "Sp2 Cleanup Crew" as we liked to call it. Apparently, word got out that I, unlike most of the dumbasses I worked with, knew what I was doing. It was bad enough that I got hounded on smoke breaks and whilst I was trying to pee, but people started calling me on the phone, asking for questions. I was dead asleep one night, and a fellow I had barely met called me, asking for help as tho I were on call or something. Damnit, if you don't know about computers, etc, get a frickin book or read up online.

I know I'm not the only geek who feels this way. Lets hear it! How many times a day do you guys get asked tech questions?
