What ticks you off?

Kind of random but I was wondering what makes you tick? Could be anything not just horse related.

For me it is:
1. Coworkers who fail to do their job & someone else has to pick up the slack
2. The "It's all about Me" attitude
3. People who act as if they are the only person in the universe who "has knowledge"
4. Liars and Thieves..don't lie to me and don't take something from someone who has worked their tail off for.
5. Procrastinators
and finally
6. People who are not appreciative

Here's some pet peeves I have at the moment.

1. My open college things. I have to write 5 pages (typewritten) literature review. I have exactly two weeks to do it and I haven't even read the books yet + it's not the only job I have to do. I couldn't start to do it almost any earlier because the open college started in the last Friday.

2. My men issues.

3. The training course by the local employment office.

4. The joint application system for real colleges start in January is open now and I feel still a bit unsure about my future.

5. Well... I haven't a pet peeve number 5 just now. So seems that things are apparently ok .

If you ask my common, all the time pet peeves I'd say people who can't keep the safe distance but licks your tailgate while you're driving and know you drive the highest allowed speed. Also rude people, drunken people, common stress and hustle and bustle, unpleasant liabilities, ailments, fights... the list keeps going on. Just that kind of obnoxious stuff that most of people often hate.

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

Oh man, don't get me started...

1) People

2) People

3) People

4) People

5) People

To be safe, that's all I'm going to say.

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

1. People who learn about my OCD and then take advantage of it. I don't understand WHY people would do that! You mess with my OCD and the things I fear or obsess over, and I will go into a full out panic attack.

2. Again with the OCD, people who make NOISE when they eat! Oh my gawd I go insane when I hear clicking of forks against plates, smacking, or any other noise, I just want to pull my hair out.

3. When I go to the barn and my dad starts telling me what to do, like he has ANY idea about anything about horses.

4. People that can't stay organized. I am one of those weird people that will randomly walk up to your desk or other belongings and start organizing. Seriously. I don't feel like looking at your mess.

5. Kids that cry. I mean, for any reason. I will not make a good parent.

6. People that think I am a ***** just because all of my friends are boys, and because I am one of the two girls on the soccer team.

I could go on and on. But, I am sure that I have weirded out some people already, so I will stop.

1. People that approach and talk to me when I am in no mood.

2. People who cuddle my horse and hand feed him and then get mad at me when he nips them even when I tell them not to touch him and warn them. Stay away from my horse, it interferes with his training when you're an idiot around him.

3. Self-righteous religious people. You don't know that you are right so just chill.

4. People who are against abortion and gay marriage. If you don't like them, then don't have one and let people make their own decisions.

5. Anybody that is loud or whiny or complains excessively. Nobody cares about all the flaws in your life, seriously.

6. Bad weather and other obnoxious distractions (including stupid people who don't know arena manners, if I am canter leg-yielding you are not obligated to free-walk right in my line) when I am trying to ride.

7. Jeans that don't fit, I have at least 5 pairs in my closet that are too loose, too tight, or too short.

Thanks, Tiff. :p

So, Sunny pretty much stole my answer.

1. People. Stupidty, racist, stupidty, sexism (male and female), stupidty, ignorant, stupidty.

2.Well, it falls into category one, but I HATE people who don't know how to drive. Learn, or get the h*ll off the road.

3. People who preach God to me. Believe it and shut it.

4. Did I mention stupid people? :p

3. Fifteen-year-olds with self made tatoos. Wait till' you're eighteen you idiots. And don't tattoo "LAKESIDE" on your arm. You're a moron.

4. Kids who brag about the people they sleep with, while in class. Again, no one gives a crap that you got laid over the weekend. Loser.

6. Messy rooms

7. Stupid people

Lots of things but...

1. People with no or little motivations or aspirations

2. People who will not save themselves.


4. People who get angry at me for never answering my phone.

5. Not knowing the future.

6. Stupid essays with vague questions and limited available source material AND source material that is too difficult to understand for first years.

7. Money
