- Conspiracy theories and wooly, uncritical thinking in general.

- Essentialism

- The level of political discourse amoung too many people i know, i.e. having to argue with people whose opinions are based on non-existent facts and PURE FUCKING IGNORANCE.

- Childishness in general.

My pathetic multi-tasking ability
Queues

My ambition/motivation imbalance
US/UK administrations

My home computer
Jaded/cynical/overeducated music and movie bores
People who play up to stereotypes

(OK, I'm going to practice my new anger management skills here)

I hate lots of things, I get frustrated really easily. But I'd just rather not dwell on them, and think about something relaxing instead.

((How was that. Was that OK, or was that totally lame and twee and stuff?))

- People who recline their seat backs flagrantly without first asking consent from their fellow passenger sitting behind them.
- People who talk in movie theatres during the movie.
- People oblivious to umbrella etiqutte.
- "Charity muggers"/clipboard-weilding solicitors
- People who charge onto the subway without first letting people off.
- People attempting to replicate a British accent when they're piss-poor at it.

Alex in NYC (vassifer), Wednesday, 21 July 2004 14:30 (seventeen years ago) link

Oh... Alex, People who charge onto the subway without first letting people off. is pretty much my biggest peeve in the world. On occasion I've used my arm to block people from entering before all the riders have exited.

I'll second all of Alex's (though the last one inspire pity rather than hate from me, really)

CeCe Peniston (Anthony Miccio), Wednesday, 21 July 2004 14:34 (seventeen years ago) link

Alex, I share a frighteningly large number of the same hates. In fact, the only one that doesn't bother me is the last one, gouvernor.

"Charity muggers"/clipboard-weilding solicitors

I've gotten really hostile to aggressive activists, as well, which I sometimes feel guilty about (since I usually agree with their causes). But why do there need to be eight Greenpeace kids all on different corners of the same intersection, two or three of them coming at me in a row (after I've already been hit up for change several times)? No I can't spare a minute for the environment. Fuck the environment, I have a lot to get done.

Rockist Scientist, Wednesday, 21 July 2004 14:38 (seventeen years ago) link

And the umbrella thing is a genuine hazard. I also hate people who wear huge back-packs and completely forget that their body now sticks out over a foot more than it normally does.

Blowhard bullies.

Colin Meeder (Mert), Wednesday, 21 July 2004 16:08 (seventeen years ago) link

Christian fundamentalism/evangelicalism (a boring choice but eternally irritating)

Extreme rationalistic/atheistic fundamentalism masquerading as 'skepticism', 'critical thinking', etc.

(Basically extreme philisophical and religious positions about things that are unknowable irritate the piss out of me.)

Having to get up to go to the bathroom.

Conservative politics.

'Tough love'

Sports (especially football)

The Protestant Work Ethic

Business and money-related things in general

Phones

Bugs

Acne (specifically, my acne)

The subculture surrounding Marijuana (the drug itself I'm indifferent to), especially those who can talk about nothing else.

The idea that not doing drugs makes you 'boring'.

Cars.

Fanboys.

Cliquishness.

Animal Rights extremists

Racism,homophobia, etc.

Commercials, ads, and advertising.

Advertising before movies.

Pop-up ads.

Puritanism/prudishness (though it's excusable with some people, usually relatives).

False modesty (to be more precise, false modesty in instances where it's not just being polite and civil but turns into passive- aggressiveness).

Cat-hating. (I can understand not liking cats, but going out of your way to actively hate them is silly).

People who brag about not watching TV.

People who whine about whining. Especially pertaining to musical artists/bands. (Sorry, but someone's song lyrics are going to end up address unhappiness in one way or another, it's useless to get upset about it).

My fucking piece of shit CD and DVD players.

People who think they're above everyone else because they just discovered jazz.

Vinyl fetishists who still claim that CD's are the modern 8-Track tape. (Actually in some ways this is more endearing than hate-inspiring, though it still can be irritating.)

Extreme ludditism/anti-technology thinking, the cult of 'realness', 'authenticity', etc. (rockism essentially).

'Political Incorrectness'.

Dennis Miller's gradual rightward shift.

Constipation and other digestion problems.

Bloody noses.

Myself (sometimes).

- people who ride the shoulder during stop-and-go traffic (if I'm next to a shoulder and I see someone doing this, I'll ease on over and block 'em)

- line-in-the-sand critical thinking/critical blanket statements/attempts to turn Big mediocrities into Rich-ly praised artistes!/dismissal of music or film or any art without bothering to understand it

- cowardice, at least when it comes to people who are unwilling to say something to your face or be honest with you

- sunny optimism or "everything is just wonderful!" attitude that is usually just masking a "don't bother me with bad stuff that happens in the world, all is okay with me, that's all that matters" attitude

- the entire concept and execution of jobs and modern employment

- strangely I don't hate anyone on ILX

I know yeah, but still, it's never that hard to see is it, a little more moving maybe. I just find the atmosphere of annoyance at gigs is often too palpable.

Ronan (Ronan), Friday, 6 August 2004 12:44 (sixteen years ago) link

I agree in principle that if you don't want to get jostled then don't bother going to a gig, but you do get arses at gigs who can be really inconsiderate. Oh & it IS that hard to see!

PinXor (Pinkpanther), Friday, 6 August 2004 12:46 (sixteen years ago) link

We've been over this a million times, but the thing that pisses me off about the pushing in front of other people at shows thing is that I'm one of those people that makes an effort to get to the show early to see opening bands and secure a spot near the front for the band I came to see. So when people get to the show 20 minutes into the headlining bands set, I fail to see what right they have to push in front of me. IF YOU WANT A GOOD SPOT, GET THERE EARLY. I know it's petty, and I'm annoyed at myself for saying this yet again and sounding like a cockfarmer, but that's my logic behind being annoyed.

St. Nicholas (Nick A.), Friday, 6 August 2004 12:48 (sixteen years ago) link

i hate people moving in front of me at shows, to hell with Ronan's sound logic. i don't mind if they don't then stop right there because they've realised they can't get more forward - next time that happens i'm just gonna move back in front of them

A few times at gigs someone has said "excuse me" as though trying to get past, so I would step back to let them through, and then they would stand in the place I just created. Damn that is annoying. We used to call that move the 'Glencoe Massacre'. Doesn't seem to happen much anymore though.

Super Cub, Friday, 19 September 2008 17:29 (twelve years ago) link

Sort of Rock Hardy's queue rage, but at the other end of the queue: I hate it when I'm at the back of the queue and the next person stands alongside me and edges a little further ahead of me whenever the queue moves. If you're on your own in a queue where most people are in groups (flights, big events, etc) and so not single file, someone WILL do this to you. HATE.

Also, the cyclist who nearly hit me by going full speed up the 20% of the pavement right between the bus and the bus stop. It's supposed to be illegal to cycle on the pavement here, but I know that's a losing battle. And I'm sure it's annoying that buses have to pull in across the cycle lane, but it does tend to mean that someone is about to walk across the pavement between the bus stop and the bus, and if nobody is standing at the stop then that somebody is probably on the bus and can't see you lurking behind it.

(I did look before I stepped out! I guess I was looking down at actual time of hitting ground, and there she was. It's really just that if she'd used the other 80% of the pavement or just gone slower I would have seen her, but she was right on the inside of the bus.)

And lately about 6000 other things besides.
