Negative people drive me crazy. I am not always 'sister mary sunshine' but some people arent happy unless they're miserable.

People who complain about life but do nothing to change it.

Weak women.

In horses...

Eating when tacked...
Nipping and owners who tolerate it (or worse, think its 'cute)
The 'gadget' riders. Ie if I can just get him this bit, he will transform into a magic horse...if I buy a $100 rope halter, my horse will have ground manners...its not abuse if you do it with a crop...*sigh*

*Bossy people.

*People who treat their animals like children, pampering them and "protecting" them and making excuses for their bad behavior.

*People who correct people's improper grammar while using improper "grammer" themselves.

* Then it looks like it's about to rain, cancel your plans, and then it just holds out for hours. Sunny or rainy, sky! Make up your mind!

* Snoring. Any annoying, repetitive noise drives me into a screaming frenzy.

* Reliance on other people, especially young females relying too closely on boys.

In horses:

* Moving when tied. I can't STAND a horse swinging its butt around and knocking people down.

* Herd bound-ness.

* Head tossing.

This for example:

Me: slaughter is a good thing when used to eradicate abuse
Annoyee: how is killing an animal nice??
Me: a lot of times it's better than the suffering the horse goes through beforehand and bla bla bla and a ton of other sensible replies and all they do is ignore your points and make bullcrap excuses for whatever they can.

Oooo, I like this thread.

-Teenage girls #1 on my list anywhere, anytime
-Teenage boys
-Rude people
-Improper grammar in a situation in which it would be appropriate to use good grammar
-Spelling mistakes
-I'm not a feminist or anything, but I hate men who feel they are better than women, and I hate women who cower down and let them think it
-People who can't shut up, and feel that the situation is awkward when nobody's talking
-People who hold on to a horse that is too much for them, believing "we love each other!" and "we can work through our problems! The striking at me and bucking me off every time we ride is nothing!"
-Know-it-alls, because they certainly don't know it all
-I appreciate someone who is confident and self-assured, but I hate people who are self-centered and convinced they are a gift to god and everyone else is beneath them

There's probably more, but I can't think of anything else at the moment.

-people who act like they know how to ride even though the spent thousands on getting their horse profeesionaly trained and they just have to sit and be pretty
-those same people getting b*tchy with people like me who have inexperinced young horses who might not be perfect all the time
-those same people expecting perfection from their horses when they don't even know what they're doing
-those same people saying I should beat my horse when all he does is step forward a bit
-people who treat you like crap jus because you have to work to make money...not just sit around and act like your working
-those people who want a horse but don't want to do all the dirty work and make fun of me for doing the dirty work
-those people who want to bred thier mare and raise the foal...when your older horses don't even respect you, I think you should rethink that
-people in general lol

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

People who sit around and tell you had to ride and tell you certain things to not do , then they go and do it themselves . Or people who think they know everything about riding and talk to you like you know nothing , yet they do all those things to .

Oh yeah I suppose a more simple way of putting that , A HYPOCRITE ! Of course we are all guilty of this sometimes , but some people just over do it.

Guys who leave whisker hair caked in the sink after shaving *ewww*

Toilet paper put on the roll upside down


Horse-related: people who talk down to you. I don't like people who assume you are an idiot until proven otherwise. I don't hesitate to ask a question if I don't know something, because I'm a research junkie and I like to learn new things every day. But asking questions doesn't make me dumb.
