Things that make you slightly mad...

We all have things that drive us mad - just a little. And I thought why not share them with the forum?

I'll start with "getting an answer to an easy and clear question that is more confusing than helpful".

My grandmother asked me to please clean the fridge. Now she has two of them. One is on the front of the kitchen, the other to the back. Both have an integrated freezer.

So I asked her, "Which one? The one to the front or the one to the back?"
She said, "The one with the freezer."
Confused I asked, "Well, which one? The one to the front or the one to the back?"
"Yes.", she answered.
"Yes... which one?", I tried to find out.
"Just clean both."
:joy:

The part I encounter the most is the "is it this or that" and people answer with "yes".
"Do you want the big or the small knife?"
"Yes."
Arrgghhhh! :astonished:

So... now I hope you will share something that drives you slightly mad - but try to keep it fun, please. ;)

    When someone tells me that Freddie Mercury wasn't the greatest singer of all times.


    Now seriously, what gets me triggered the most is simple every day things, when people are not being considerate of others living around them.

    Example: whenever people try to board onto the train/tube/bus before me and others get a chance to get off, or eating smelly fast foods on public transport or listening to crappy music out loud, dumping rubbish in the middle of the street, loud phone talking, keeping feet on the seats etc etc.

    Not even mentioning driving... Man that's a whole separate story.

    Overall: others being an ignorant bum hole, that's what gets me the most.

    It gets worse, when you tell someone excuse me why are you doing this and then they go tell you off, even if they did wrong. Just typing that gets me mad.

    When you walk past someone and say 'Hello' to which they respond 'How are you?'

    I stop, I say 'Thank you for ...' as I noticed they just kept walking.

    Why say "how are you", "how's your day" or any other version if you have no intention of listening to a response?

    Also the 'Have a great day' like its my choice? No ya poptart! I wanna have a shitty day!! ok, maybe that one is just me being silly. ;)

    When I’m playing NML on my phone, and I get a phone-call. Oh. Crap. How dare someone call me when I’m busy playing a mobile app game!

    Analogies on the forums.

    Baby clothes with pockets.

    People who type “should of” instead of “should’ve” or “should have”
    Everyone’s got two wolves inside them. One is anger, envy, pride. The other…truth, kindness. Every day they tear each other apart.
    But it’s not the better wolf that wins. It’s the one you feed.

    I couldn't agree more on all of that! (How did you know I had that song in my head when posting? :smiley: )

    Don't get me started on driving! That makes me more than just slightly mad... especially people not using the turn signal - come on, you paid for it. Use it! I can't read your mind... stop risking everyone's lives already! Arrrgh!

    Quit petting my peeves already!

    When I’m waiting for a text reply and those dots are moving and I get........ nothing....... alrighty then.

    When people block the middle of the aisle with their shopping cart. Hello! That’s the driving lane.

    When my daughter eats a “snack” before supper and promises she’ll eat her food that I cooked but she’s too full.

    When people judge you for drinking from the actual wine bottle because you don’t want to dirty any more dishes ( it’s just practical)

    Ah, just figured one for real though. Well, in truth I can make quite a list. Argh, the things that drive me mad. Zips lips, ties hands, kicks himself in the nuts, anything to keep from listing a million items right here and now...

    People saying zombies in a TWD forum. I mean, REALLY?

    I agree with @MadPuppy they are Biters, Not Zombies...

    Biters - Woodbury
    Cold Bodies - Terminus
    Creeper - Merle
    Dead Ones - Abe/Rosita/Eugene group
    Swimmer - Dale in the well scene
    Geek - Daryle season 2
    Monsters - Everyone's favorite comic relief (Andrea)
    Roamers - Alexandria
    Rotter - The hospital where Beth di.. di.. (it's so hard to even say...) Beth died!
    Walker - Rick the dick's coined phrase.

    Not sure if you're English primary language so if you are, disregard what I'll say cause you'll know that.

    To them, "how are you" or "you're alright?" doesn't actually mean that they want to know how are you doing, it's equivalent to hello or hi.

    I work with patient transport. It always gets me when someone's on the bed, ill as hell, connected to the oxygen, coughing and often finding it hard to breathe and many other possible conditions and then some comes up to them and says "you're alright mate?"

    I'm like geeeez really? That's not even funny man.

    Haha
    Well, not 'Queens English' but our version is considered my primary language, though I'm still learning it after over 40 years. Haha

    Trust me, I'd be on @Bill_ZRT's list of targets for the abbreviations I use.

    Now if all my neighbors had the same good taste in music or would at least keep the volume down. Anyone familiar with German Schlagermusik?

    If anyone really needs to listen to that, use headphones. For one you would not terrorize your neighbors... And it would also not let them actually know you're a moron instead of just suspecting you are...

    People in supermarkets who put their stuff on the conveyor belt and stand close to the end of it so others can't reach it and start putting their stuff on it.

    What are these people afraid of? That the people behind them will steal their wares so they can buy them instead?

    And why are they not even more afraid of the people on the other end that would be able to reach the stuff and grab it the exact moment the cashier and customer are busy with the payment transaction?
