More accurately, things that I don't like
The word "panties"
When people don't correct things they've spelled wrong.
Any song sung by Christina Aguiliara since "Genie in a Bottle". Dirrty is...sttuppidd.
My cat crapped on the couch the other day.
There are more corn chips than anything else in Conn's Party Mix. Corn chips suck.
When I bite into a pit in an olive. Especially when the olive is on a pizza. Ruins my whole appetite because there's always that terrifying second when I think it could be someone's fingernail.
People who run redlights while driving 15mph above/below the speedlimit while talking on their cell phones and fixing their hair.
Professors who delight in intimidating their students.
That "I before E except after C" doesn't work for their or neighbor. I spell their wrong a lot.
Their, there, and they're are not the same word, and no one seems to know it but me.
No one has invented a caffeine drip IV. Who has the bladder to handle all the coffee and Mountain Dew a person needs to sit through their required computer science class?
People who litter.
Dirty, nasty, disgusting, rude, irritating, oh how I HATE semi truck drivers.
That "There's a hometown way of doing things" car commercial.
All the announcers on WHIZ radio who are sadly mistaken when they think they're funny with their stupid, not funny jokes.
The fact that you need to be on steriods and use a pair of vice grips to get into a jar of anything.
My pants are getting too tight.
My filtered water tastes like hose water.
I was one pin off of getting a triple in bowling the other night.
That fact that when you cook bacon, everything in your house, including the clothes you are wearing, reeks of bacon for the rest of the day.
People who have nothing better to do than bitch and moan about everything wrong in their lives. Especially when they are just spoiled, rich little brats
People who try to convert me. That bothers me a lot.
When I'm walking and all of a sudden I trip.
When I always get a kidney infection on Christmas break.
Those who chose not to cover their mouths when they cough and sneeze.
Horrible people who don't wash their hands after going to the bathroom!
That the tv won't play the one song I want to hear.
That I can no longer download that song and listen to it anytime I want.
The only present I got from my cousin last Christmas was a lovely (read: I thought I was going to die) bout of the flu.
When there aren't any new shows on for the whole month of December/March/June/July/August. DAMNIT!
