Hey, you want to hear the most annoying sound in the world?

What in this world do you find most annoying?

In college, I sublet with a guy who smoked unfiltered camels. After a short while, the sound of the Zippo flipping open would make me physically cringe.

People who do 5 miles per hour under the posted speed limit (or, on the freeway, 10-15mph under). If you don't like driving, don't drive.

MOST annoying? The thing that's annoying me a lot at the the moment is...
Swearing for no good reason.

Someone I work with swears. A lot. Don't get me wrong, she's a lovely, funny, intelligent person, but she can't let a sentence go by without cursing. I've always (well, since I became an adult, anyway) been of the mindset that swearing profusely is a sign of a limited vocabulary, and in this case I know it's not true, and it grates every time she curses.

Donald Trump's hair
Paris Hilton's face (hell, her existence in my world where I have to look at her face)
Bill Frist
Ann Coulter
Magazines that expect me to care about Brangelina and the rest of them

People who lack common courtesy. For example, holding the door open for someone immediately behind you or when a group of people are blocking the aisleway/doorway, slow drivers in the middle or left lanes, someone not saying thank you when you've done something for them (no matter how insignificant the act is), etc.

wow, how much space do i have??

i will limit myself and save the readers from a rant and say that for me, i think the most annoying sound in the world is the sound of a crying baby. nothing makes me want to engage in senseless violence more than a crying baby. it drives me absolutely insane.

it's a toss up between

ingrown hairs

(coincidentally, both of which, cover miss Hilton)

dan, i used to share your pain.

so, i have a secret which may very well help you my friend.

simply have yourself a baby.

(seriously, NOW, when I hear a baby cry, I become concerned. yes, spooky, i know)

I like Paris Hilton. I admit it.

She's a marketing genius. She can get people to pay her $1,000,000.00 to show up and wave. And, at least according to a friend of mine who's a line producer for an entertainment television show, up close and personal she's 1) absoltuely flawless, 2) very sweet and 3)actually a decent conversationalist.

Besides, since I've gotten cable again, I've watched a couple episodes of the simple. She's the next Jerry Lewis. And I've heard one or two profound things, such as, don't go out on Saturday night, it's so desperate. Go out Monday night and avoid the bridge and tunnel crowd. LOL.

Boo, so what you're saying is that in 50 years, she'll be hosting telethons?

I find Jerry Lewis's voice really annoying. He was (and probably still is), an excellent singer, however.

The thing I find most annoying is all the calories in the food I love to eat. How come calories taste so good?

At 7:27 PM , Blogger punky said...

amen to that sister ... in my perfect world vegetables would be fattening and ice cream would be good for you.

btw Mad, you looked beautiful at your wedding!! Congrats Mrs. Weasel. ;)

What about people who bring babies (not teeny infants, but at the age where they NEED attention) and ignore them to talk to their dinner companion while said baby screams and throws things and generally annoys the other diners who are trying to have a pleasant meal without listening to someone ELSE's screaming kid?

(Yes this happened to us last night.)

One more: two people eating in a restaurant, one obviously talking on her cellphone and ignoring her partner.

I find watching that annoying, so I can't imagine being the ignoree.

Boo, you need to get out more.

SOrry, that should have read bring baies to a restaurant

babies not "baies"

and obliviously not "obviously"

1) Ladies who drive their children to school and park in the fire lane or handicap spot because they're too lazy to walk their fat asses through the parking lot to drop-off their kids. Nice role models. The same goes for people who block the lane at the grocery store while they 'just run in' to drop off their drycleaning. Why do they deserve this luxury more than me?

2) When my dog eats her own scat.

3) People who park their shopping carts smack in the middle of the aisle so nobody can get by.

Inconsiderate fools. There are too many of them.

I'm sure I'll think of more.

Amen to that, Leetie.

Like people who empty their groceries into their car, then leave the cart blocking the lot or someone else's car because they are too lazy to walk 50 feet and put it back where it belongs.

Or people who park in the handicapped parking because they are too fat and lazy to walk from a regular spot.

Or people who park at a bus stop to run into Starbucks to get coffee, forcing the bus to block the street to discharge passengers.

I hate those guys.

4. My ignorant neighbors who let their ignorant dog (yes, I know, that's an oxymoron) bark ALL FREAKING DAY LONG!


At 9:12 PM , Anonymous insomniac the cranky said...

the neighbors two doors down who run a garage out of their back yard (for this is indeed West Virginia, the Land that Zoning Forgot), whose cars go VROOM VROOM all weekend...

At 3:05 AM , Blogger Kafaleni said...

*deletes rant*

Short version: I agree.

At 6:50 AM , Blogger Trillian DBB said...

or when a group of people are blocking the aisleway/doorway

I hate that too. If I weren't afraid of talking to strangers I'd say, " erm, excuse me, but I just need to get through that door, if that's ok, if it's not too much trouble." That'd tell em!

Yes, Leetie! My next door neighbor has a HUGE freaking dog and whenever she goes out and leaves it alone in her TINY apartment it will literally bark for hours!

I hate that bitch... and the dog annoys me too.

At 8:45 AM , Blogger Leetie said...

Hey! The idiot dog is barking again! Who'd a thunk?

The thing I can't get past is that the owners are home. Ignorant.

I find it annoying when ...

people talk during movies.

people talk on their cell phone in public quiet spaces.

strangers tell me to smile. Piss off.

people don't say thank you.

people dress their small dogs in doll clothes. That's just mean.

people complain about thier lives but refuse to do anything to chaneg their situation.

people don't use their blinker.

people are rude to wait staff or staff in general.

people pee on toilet seats and don't clean up after.

people take up two parking spots because they think their car is more valuable than everyone else's.

people cross a busy street when the light is green, the don't walk sign is illuminated and traffic is heavy and they stroll casually across the street while twenty cars lay on the horn and contemplate running him/her over.

that's all for now ;)

Ignorant, racist people annoy me intensely.

Also, if you want to instantly piss me off, call me stupid or dumb. I may be uninformed or out of the loop, but I am NOT stupid!
