@cdncinnamongirl:  Totally agreed. LEGGINS ARE NOT PANTS!!!!!! I kid you not, I saw a girl wearing TIGHTS as pants a year ago. You could see her underwear and everything. WTH?!?! I was trying not to puke, seriously. When I saw her my eyes popped wide open like uhhhhhhhhhh does anyone else see that???

I hate tall knee socks that peak over boots. I just don’t get it! It looks sooo sloppy to me.

The only bumper sticker thing I hate is the one with the little boy peeing on something (usually a team’s logo) and flipping you off at the same time.  Also, I hate the truck nuts. 

Other useless things I hate:

  • When people drive around, refusing to get gas until they price check every gas station in the area.  I know gas prices are high.  But, when one station is $3.52 and the other one is $3.53, just stop and get your damn gas!  I’ve known people to literally run out of gas and be stranded because they thought they’d find some miraculously cheaper gas somewhere else.
  • When people turn every, tiny situation into a big, dramatic thing.  My Mother-In-Law is like this.  It’s almost as if she cannot function if something isn’t array.  Every. single. noise she hears, she jumps up and says, “What was that?!”  Last night Father-In-Law was washing his hands and hit the soap pump.  Mother-In-Law was in the next room and came in screaming, “Did (the dog) just throw up!?”  How does a soap pump sound like the dog throwing up?  She also freaks out if she doesn’t see one of her dogs for a few seconds.  If she’s leaving the house, she turns around and looks at them and if one of them isn’t in her line of sight she starts panicking.  Throws down her purse and runs through the house saying things like, “Oh God, I hope that hawk didn’t get him/her in the backyard!”  WHY would that be the FIRST thing somebody would come up with, in lieu of a more logical conclusion.  Like, maybe the dog is in his dog bed, or maybe you accidently shut him in a room somewhere? 
  • When someone makes a thousand requests at a fast food place, then gets mad when their order is messed up.
  • Valpaks.  They’re these envelopes full of loose coupons that come in the mail every week.  Wouldn’t be so bad if it were a book of coupons, but loose coupons just get scatttered.  Also, the coupons are for services that we’re likely never gonna use.  Mostly home remodeling. 
  • Almost everything the ILs have.  They’re hoarders.  The yard looks like Sanford and Son and the house is filled with useless crap that can never be used again.  It is so frustrating and sometimes it makes me cry.
  • These new fake-flipflop things.  They’re like elastic headbands but they’re for your feet and look like thong flip flops.  There is no bottom to them.  Why does anyone need these? 
  • Those commericals that come on before nearly every Youtube video now.  Wtf?
  • Facebook games and the million requests per day to play them.

I hate toilets with the motion detector that makes them flush.  The timing is NEVER right.

@Ashley_B:  Ugh, those damn Facebook pictures! Totally agree. Because nothing makes you a worse person than scrolling past a crying baby picture right? Honestly…

I also hate those FB “share” pictures, too.

Like:

“I am a mom.  That means I am a doctor, lawyer, rocket scientist… no, wait, I am FREAKING JESUS because I managed to figure out how to do to something that women before me have done for thousands of years!”

Lol, I have PMS today.

Cheap toilet paper.

I need to use 3 times as much of your 1 ply, sandpapery toilet paper that cost you $3 than I would some basic 2 ply TP that costs $5, so it’s actually NOT cheaper to buy the shitty stuff.  Why do people still skimp on such a necessity?!

I didn’t read through this whole thread, but I HATE people who are driving any regular car, truck, or SUV, who stop dead and then creeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeps over speedbumps.  Unless you are in an after-market LOWERED CAR, then fuck you and get moving!  Especially the soccer moms in the SUVs.  YOUR VEHICLE HAS 2 FEET OF MOTHERLOVING GROUND CLEARANCE.  GO!

ETA: I understand that speed bumps are not “useless”, but going a half a mile an hour over one while trying to, what, protect your tires that are desgined to handle bumps?  IS.

@UpstateCait:  I’m a little late to the party, but I LOVE that you not only yelled at the guy with the dogs in the truck cab, but followed him to yell some more. People are effing stupid. I get nervous when my dog’s nose barely fits out the window!

Can someone PLEASE explain to me this whole tampon with reusable wrapper thing?!?!  Why on earth would you need a reusable wrapper for a tampon?!?!?!

@RahlyRah:  If it’s a plastic applicator, you can wrap it in the wrapper, and then throw it in the trash so no one sees the, uh… soiled applicator after you’re done.
