What Do You Get Annoyed By?

I get annoyed when someone holds a grudge against an entire animal species because of a bad experience with a single individual one time. Like if someone is bitten by one dog and then goes on to hate all dogs from that point on. As if every dog, or whatever animal, in the world is going to be a copy of that one, so you're just going to pin whatever that one was responsible for on to the other thousands who had nothing to do with it.
Does that include misanthropes?

i guess it would depend on the reason why the person was misanthropic.
if someone were a misanthrope due to large-scale errors that humanity as a whole has made, or due to general shortcomings intrinsic to human life, i would find that more palatable than someone who became a misanthrope merely because they got mad at someone walking down the street one day or feel like other people are a burden

People who are too mentally sheltered to think before they argue about something. Usually something they have no understanding of aside from their own feelings and beliefs.

Streamers and content creators talking about science they don't even slightly understand primarily.

I get very annoyed when someone tries to answer a well-thought-out argument with a snappy "gotcha!".

It's like, do you really think you can topple my argument with something you just thought up on the spot?
Do you not think that, if it took you three seconds to think of that, that perhaps that very thing also occurred to me over the three months that I was refining that argument, and just maybe I have a provision for that, seeing that I wasn't defeated by your idea when I encountered it myself?

Basically, any time when someone values 'pop' rhetoric over a finely-wrought point of discussion. It's sad to see an audience laugh at a smart debater just because his opponent cracked a joke about his position.

People who claim they don't know how to do something without even trying. No, you're just a worthless lazy fuck.

Rude people at the supermarket who almost crash into your shopping cart because they pay no attention to their surroundings

Everything that bothers me stems from people who are oblivious to how their actions or lack of manners affect those around them. Self centered narcissistic tendencies. Essentially a lack of empathy.

People who eat with their mouth open. Its disgusting. Downright repulsive if they make slurping, sucking, smacking, or munching noises as well.

Bad breath. I dont care if you only gargle listening, never brush, never floss, and your teeth are butter yellow with plaque buildup. If your breath is nice then you're fine. But if your breath smells like you just ate lunch out of a toilet bowl stay away, just talk at me from the other side of the room.

Anyone who shits while on a plane. I did not pay money for a vacation to be locked in a flying can full of your intestinal perfume. Go before or in between flights on a layover. Do not make every single other passenger suffer through your recreation of a burning dumpster full of baby diapers at 30,000 feet with no escape.

Jumping back to the narcissism mentioned earlier. There are nearly 8,000,000,000 people in the world. You are only 1 of them. Take a shovel, go out back, dig a deep hole, and leave your grandiose sense of self importance in that grave. Altruism is far sexier than any job, material possessions, or amount of money you could ever brag about having. Could go on, but those are the biggest peeves I have.

Dude, this is an 18-hour flight.

Altruism? Last I checked plenty of women don't care about broke men. We don't see them lining up for the homeless man on the street but I do see them chasing men with Ferraris! 😂

I get annoyed when people say that just because we're not sure about something, then it's a free-for-all and any idea someone came up with while on acid has an equal chance of being the truth.
 
Clutter... I cannot stand clutter and disorganization. I literally have an anxiety attack if I walk in a room that's a mess. I've ended relationships based on the cleanliness of there houses/living space. I cant help it, always been OCD about that.

Sounds like every day as a supervisor.
I'm not exactly one myself, although I'm a little higher up on the corporate totem pole. I'm someone that really knows our systems in and out. But a lot of times it's basic "You really should have know better than that, you've been working here for 2.5 years. Now I have to spend over an hour fixing your screw up so our client isn't screwed out of thousands of dollars." kind of crap.

Yeaaaaah. I am supervisor, and my currently longest term associate has been in my department for maybe 5 months.

Honestly, when is the last time you were ever on an 18 hour flight? I've only been on 2 that lasted longer than 5 hours before stopping. This probably stems from knowing someone in the aviation industry for the last 25 years, and is currently the executive director at one of the largest airports in the world, who vehemently believes toilets should be removed from all commercial aircraft. I dont disagree.

A very minor annoyance would be when sites put "posted x days/months/years ago" instead of just saying the date something was posted.
The exact date would be so much simpler to give, and would give much more information at a glance. "1 year ago" could mean anywhere from 365 to 729 days ago.

I get annoyed when someone considers any amount of thinking to be 'overthinking'.
The type that would much rather be 'unthinking'.

Programming "quit" in a game to just return to the title screen. No! I want to fucking quit, as in close the fucking game. I don't want to sit through the damn title loading screen, then get asked if I really want to quit when I choose the quit command from the title.
