Survey forms that ask you for your ethnicity and include both "Caucasian" and "Native American." I always mark "Native American". I figure I was born in the U.S. and you can't get any more "Native American" than that. Les|

The example you gave us about the spell check is very annoying indeed. But the smallest thing that really bugs me on this website is people who bail out early when they are losing on those game shows. |

People who look at fat people like me at McDonald's and whisper stuff like that's what you look like if you eat here all the time. First of all, I only eat at McDonald's 11 times a day and only 3 of those are supersized. So what I had to move in because I became too fat to fit out the door and I just sit at this computer playing trivia and eating McDonald's. |

Men who post using the word men when the word people is appropriate.|
I've just spotted two incidences of this in the last two minutes - both by men, both in Religion. Funny, that.

The most annoying thing that gets under my skin, is when I'm trying to make a point and I am interrupted by someone, just as I'm about to hit the peak of my opinion. |

Women I don't know grabbing me as a form of conversation. Who the heck made the rule that women could grab and pat men with impunity?|
If a man tried that, he'd be prosecuted for third-degree sexual assault.

Someone new has just posted a duplicate thread. I posted:|
and the nanny filter refused to post it because it "only took a few seconds" and therefore was not worth posting. So i had to add a load of filler to the sentence, just to get it accepted. Grrr.
Stu, I would never grab or pat a man without his express permission. :p

It's a classic, I know, but the thing that really sends me into a frenzy of exasperation is finding that the toothpaste tube has been squeezed in the middle...AGAIN!|

Gee Stu, I thought men would like that sort of treatment from women. Are they just being friendly or do they give you a little wink as well? |

I know that this might sound pretty dumb, but I always get annoyed when my one friend says the word wiff on the computer instead of with. I don't know why I do it just look so annoying when she says it. example- im hanging wiff my friends today. Another thing that annoys is when the same girl puts down z's after her words instead of s's. GRRR I CANT STAND THEM lol|

Yes Les - that used to offend me too! But then I began working for a non profit organization. Businesses and organizations that offer grants ask for that information - to make sure their monies are being "equally" distributed. Also, Social Services needs those stats since they must report to the government.|
I will not give my age - nobody's business but my own. But again, grants are offered based on the age of folks.
Why is is that almost every newspaper article - doesn't matter what the topic - always gives the age of the person answering.

Another is that when I am standing in a line at the supermarket check out - a new register opens - and instead of taking someone who is already waiting on line, a customer just walks right to the new cashier.|

Mosquitoes (and we're the mosquito capital of the world from June to September at least!); people who say 'less' when they mean 'fewer' or use reflexive pronouns incorrectly (the whole 'myself' thing when they mean 'me'); people who complain about not being able to use chatspeak on FunTrivia boards (thank God for that rule! In my opinion, chatspeak is a fashionable form of illiteracy); people who do not say 'please' or 'thank you'; people who chat interminably on cell phones in public places and, worse, when they're driving; people who don't seem to understand that every car comes equipped with turn signals; potholes (we're also the pothole capital of Canada. Once the snow disappears, we're faced with roads that look like the surface of the moon); bigotry (no such a small annoyance, though)...I could go on, but I just realized that I'm becoming a cranky old lady, and what could be more annyoing than that? |
