20 things that grinds my gears


Have you ever thought of those things that people do that really makes you feel like throwing them to another planet, but you can't really figure out why they keep doing it? Yea that's what I want to talk about 'cause these things really grind my gears.

Point 1: Cat calls and lousy pick-up lines: “The color combination you have on would make good wedding colors.”  I also hate it when the first thing a guy says to me before he says hi is 'I don't see a ring on your finger or why are you single?' That's just a lame line, it doesn't work for me, at least try a common courtesy.

Point 2:I hate it when strangers or acquaintances ring me on yahoo messenger without asking if can I answer their call. I find it absolutely rude especially when your status reads 'busy'.

Point 3:I hate it when I answer so much question in class and my lecturer gives me the same mark as someone who doesn't know the topic for the class or when my classmates asks me for a question and I say I don't know and the next thing he or she says is 'why don't you know, you should know it'...I feel like screaming out 'THEN YOU SHOULD KNOW IT TOO'

Point 4:I hate it when people see me and ask if we have cars in my country or if I live in a hut?..It makes me wonder if all their brain could process when they see a black person is THE JUNGLE.

Point 5: It really grinds my gears when I get to a website and it takes 15 seconds for the website to load only to see a flash intro that has no content.

Point 6: People who stop in the middle of an aisle to chat and don't move when they see you coming.

Point 7: Facebook weirdoes! I don't know who you are...I don't want to be friends...Even if you request 40/11 more times!

Point 8: People that are invited to dinner , accept the invite and come late!!!

Point 9:  Anyone who cannot say 'Please' or 'Thank you' or hold a door open when you are clearly right behind them.

Point 10: People who patronize me and smile while doing their best to make me seem stupid

Point 11: People who will not admit that they made a mistake

Point 12 : Bodybuilders. Shocked? Now I’m not saying this about ALL bodybuilders. But it’s the attitude of some guys that just gets on my nerves.

Point 13: People taking up computers in the library to play Farmville. There are thousands of students and not nearly enough computers. I would bring my laptop but I don’t want to lug it around and the lack of a decent Wi-Fi signal makes it a waste of time. I find it incredibly frustrating that I cannot finish my work on a paper because 50% of the people using the computer are watching YouTube videos or harvesting their crops.

Point 14: People texting while walking down the road, I completely understand that everyone has a busy life. With that said, I think we should have a "Don’t text and walk" rule. If you have to text maybe you should pull it over on the side, text away and get back on the freeway. I have yet to see someone walk into a wall while texting, which I might find a little humorous. I have seen people slam into other people and it’s a little embarrassing.

Point 15: Hollywood’s recent obsession with shooting films in 3D that don’t need it! Why the heck is Justin Bieber's movie in 3D?

Point 16: Humidity. I’m a Black girl with Black girl hair. The end.

Point 17: Dirty Old men, Nothing worse than walking down the street while a 65 year old man oggles you. It just makes my skin crawl. They act like they’ve never seen a woman! Ewwww.

Point 18: Drunks who get within inches of your face while talking to you.They feel the need to stand toe to toe with you and talk about all this sentimental garbage that you have no clue about, all the while they are inches from your face and you are getting drunk off of the fumes that are coming out of their mouth.

Point 19: Not flushing the toilet.

Point 20: Lady Gaga. Fans take no offence, I simply do not get her.

So, that's just basically some of the things that totally grind my gears...
