Pet peeves

Yes, we've done it before but I have to say I hate movies supposedly set in the US but obviously filmed somewhere else. It never looks or feels quite "American".

People who are constantly on their phone in public and can't hang up the call to handle their business. If you are speaking to someone on the phone, then don't get in the checkout line, trash. Have a shred of decency. Hang up your call, so you can interact like a human.

Hookups who don't realize it's JUST A HOOKUP. We both came. You wiped up, now head out. This isn't a date. You got your load, end of conversation. See ya. We met on Grindr, not out on a date. This is about the fuckening, and it's done, show yourself out. Quit lingering.

Political threads taking over DL instead of threads like this. I'd infinitely rather read you bitches bitching about the things other people do in restaurants to piss you off, the foods you hate / love / hate someone for loving / hate someone for hating, or what makes your dick wilt in porn, than even one more word about Trump. That ugly man's image has all but taken over the Datalounge. I am so grateful to this OP for this humble little non-Trump thread.

Oh, and my pettest peeve is having to listen to anyone's smartphone for any reason whatsoever. I don't want to hear your songs, your conversation, your games, etc., on those tinny little shit speakers ever. USE YOUR HEADPHONES OR EARBUDS, BITCH!!!

R12 - totally agree with all those points. I see (saw) the lack of headphones a LOT in airports of all places. Put your fucking earbuds in, assholes!

[QUOTE]I hate movies supposedly set in the US but obviously filmed somewhere else.

In similar fashion, I laugh (not necessarily out loud) when I see a movie, usually a TV movie, that supposedly takes place in an eastern US city in which we see palm trees on, for example, the George Washington Parkway in DC/VA.

r13, I was in Nordstrom's men's shoe department last week. Two employees, one a supervisor, were attempting to talk—conversate?—with each other while the supervisor's phone was playing music on speaker. I don't know how the one without his phone going managed not to kill the bitch with the phone.

At one point, he gave me a "look what I have to put up with" eyeroll. I felt so bad for him. I'm ancient, and I remember when Nordstrom was the better place to shop for clothing. Now, just another bastion of pricey trash.

People who walk on sidewalks oblivious to the fact that others may want to get around them, or even share the sidewalk. The worst, in my neighborhood, are soccer moms who apparently don't have jobs. They walk 3 across the entire sidewalk and have no clue that someone might be walking toward them, needing 1/2 the sidewalk.

People at work who have to tell you their personal crap, what they did over the weekend, etc. It's work. The meeting starts at 8:00? By 8:01 we should be into the meeting contents, not still talking about people's weekend activities. I do not care. You are not my friend, you are my coworker.

by Anonymousreply 3510/05/2020

Narcissistic assholes like r32 who think they own the grocery store, or any other public venue, even if only at certain times of day / week. I'm sure you're equally insufferable in every area.

That said, I generally do shop in the morning on weekdays. But an "elder" friend still works, and can only shop on Saturdays. I'm sure he has no idea he is engendering the hatred of such a simpleton.

Newscasters who don't speak in complete sentences. Sometime during the past 10 years, it became fashionable for them to use gerunds instead of verbs, or omit verbs entirely. Just watch David Muir for more than 15 seconds. Where a normal person might say, "President Trump is back in the White House tonight after leaving the hospital. His doctors say he is doing well, but some medical experts are skeptical" , Muir might say, "Tonight, President Trump, back in the White House. Doctors saying he's doing well. Medical experts, not so sure."

They ALL do it on ABC now.

slurping noises (for food and drink). I was on a meditation retreat for 10 days and this Chinese dude would always sit next to me during lunch. We had to be almost completely silent during the whole retreat. He would constantly slurp his food as loud as possible. It was so disgusting.

People who never use turn signals. It's a real asshole move. There's no reason not to let people know you're either changing lanes or you're turning at the next intersection. "I do what I want when I want!" is the message it sends.

Pedestrians dragging their asses across crosswalks when cars are waiting to advance into an intersection. Unless you are elderly or injured, please move it along! Chafing is not considered an injury.

In general, displays of a lack of situational awareness are annoying. Look around, assess the situation and take other people's needs into consideration.
