People who walk into your office, see you on the phone, start to listen to the conversation and then start talking to you too..so your head almost explodes trying to listen to them both…so annoying!

When people call about a minute before our service department closes and ask to be transferred to service, then when no one answer over there because they are gone for the day the customer calls back acting angry that no one answered.  I TOLD YOU THEY WERE CLOSING.

Pinterest.  I hate hate hate hate that site with a passion.

 

In theory, it sounds like a good idea.  But I really can’t justify spending that much time building up essentially a page of bookmarks that I will NEVER EVER USE.

 

When I need a recipe, I go to allrecipes.com or the Betty Crocker website.  

 

I guess the Pinterest phenomenon just goes over my head.

People who make the EXACT SAME MISTAKES over and over again.  After a point, there’s no excuse!

It gets me every single time when people say, “I’m sorry, but..” Not talking about apologizing, I’m talking about things like, “I’m sorry, but that shirt is ugly.” You’re not sorry. If you were remorseful, you wouldn’t say what you’re about to say. Anyone who says this, I immediately respect them less, not that it really means much.

Also, when my mother refuses to do some things. It isn’t the fact that she refuses to do them, it’s the excuses she gives. “Hyper, can you go do <enter menial task here> for me? I’m old.”

Mom, Grandma is twice your age and has survived breast cancer twice and had a double mastectomy. She plays football with the grandkids. I’m pretty sure she wouldn’t be using this excuse when you’re in perfectly good health. Go do <useless, menial task> yourself.

@JaneyDcat:  Good god I hate Pinterest too. My husband’s best friend’s wife is wicked into Pinterest and always posts stuff on facebook. My husband told me to try it out, that I might like it. Okay, whatever. I made an account and sat there.

“Now what?”

“You ‘pin’ things you like.” I stared at him like he had just asked me to shoot him up with heroin.

It’s the most pointless website ever, plus it makes finding original sources incredibly difficult because no one posts their original source. It’s a shame to the OP of the image, the photographer and whomever made the damn thing.

I hate Pinterest so, so, so much. I wish I could scorch it off of the internet with my sheer hatred alone.

@Nona99: My mother works for the county in California, she does Park & Rec and deals with the general public and also manages a cemetery. I can’t tell you how many times people have come in wanting to talk to her and she’s dealing with a family trying to bury their loved one and just start talking to her as if the other people don’t exist.

Phones apparently mean, “Just talk louder, I’ll be able to hear both conversations at once because hey, the world revolves around you, right?”

No wonder my mother wants to lock the doors and pretend they’re closed every day.

When people post on Facebook about how much that hate drama and ‘fakes’ when they are the ones starting the drama and being fake.

Oh, and hashtags. I don’t understand them.

Remember how much nicer life was BEFORE Facebook and Twitter?

 

It is VERY rare that I read a status update that even makes me smile or feel anything.  Maybe I’m emotionally numb or something.  I don’t need someone to post “TGIF” or “Mondays suck.”

 

Somehow, 21st century technology dictates otherwise…

@Nona99:  Ugh, this keeps happening to me: my boss asks me to forward the phones to the answering service, which requires me to be on the phone for about a minute.  Then he starts talking at me while I have the phone to my ear, and then when I start talking to the person on the phone, he apologizes and gets all flustered.  And this happens pretty much every day…

I also hate when people come into my area, say something that doesn’t need to be a conversation, then keep talking, and don’t understand that I am working even though I am typing and not really paying attention to them, just stand there awkwardly for awhile, and just generally don’t seem to understand social cues.  So glad that person is a former coworker, only because of that one personality quirk…  (yes, kind of horrible to say, but seriously.  Get a clue.)

People who keep trying to one-up me. Especially when they are older and have had their whole lives to accumulate wealth, whereas I am just starting out. Everything doesn’t have to be a competition!

@megz06:  I hope I don’t offend anyone with this, but I hate when male co-workers announce that “we’re pregnant.” HATE IT!!
