Oh Zig! That was hilarious. I was laughing out loud. Hope no one heard me.

My mom does that sentence thing too. It's actually quite obnoxious. When you're in a conversation with her she'll just go ''yeah I saw someperson the other day and eh…'' and then she'll just look at her phone or something and doesn't complete her sentence, and I'm just like ''FINISH YOUR GODDAMN SENTENCE!'' No but seriously, it's actually quite rude.

Oh, another one. It annoys me when someone is talking to me but I can't hear completely what they're saying so I ask them if they could just please repeat it and they just say ''oh, nevermind'', usually in a very annoyed tone. Seriously, is it that much work to repeat a sentence?

People who insist you look at pictures of their children when you did not ask to see them. "Oooh let me show you the pictures I took of little Johnny at the zoo!" Fuh-huh-huk you. 

People who let their sentences trail off into nothingness. There is a server who does this at a diner Zag & I go to frequently for breakfast on the weekends. Every time he serves us, he will ask "Are you ready to order or……". Or what? Spit it out!! Am I ready to order or perform brain surgery right here on this table using nothing but this soap film spotted butter knife? Am I ready to order or start reciting the Bill of Rights in flawless Klingon? Am I ready to order or start running amok about the diner licking everyone's faces?

 

Next time someone does that, you should retaliate with endless photos of your pet(s).

The second one makes me think of when people end a sentence with "… so." And they expect you to finish the rest.

My biggest pet peeve, though, is while you're having a conversation, someone interrupts, and rather than holding up a hand or telling that person to hold on, the person you were talking to starts talking to the other person and leaves you standing there. Sometimes I'll call out the interrupting person if that happens, it annoys me too much to let it go.

That one overused, annoying picture of John. You know which one I'm talking about. Especially when paired with the Imagine lyrics. I can't like that song anymore because its lyrics are so overused that they've become meaningless.

I like the picture still, but I've also stopped liking Imagine. Still love the music though, but the lyrics have become meaningless due to overuse.

Those both really bother me too, except in cases like what Zig said. While that was a hilarious post, I know they just have no other option so it doesn't bother me too much. I actually think I do that one a lot, so I apologize to anyone I may have bothered with that (lucky for you all I [usually] think out what I type). When it's a direct statement like that a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 it's REALLLY annoying.

Same here. Having the track shoved down my throat by Yoko on every damn release killed it for me.

When People Capitalize The First Letter Of Everything That They Type. That's always really bothered me. Why? You're just wasting your own time having to make sure every few letters is capitalized, and it bothers others (or at least me.) a-hard-days-night-john-7 It's probably just because it seems really… unnatural to read. (By the way, this may have been included in this thread already, but I don't feel like looking back through 33 pages to find out.)

Do people actually really do that themselves, the capitalizing thing? I've always suspected it was some kind of automatic internet thing. I likewise have no idea why anybody would want to take all that extra effort, especially if they're using phones or pads or something without regular shift keys. It doesn't bother me that much really. (UNLIKE THE PEOPLE WHO SHOUT IN ALL CAPS. THAT REALLY NEEDS TO STOP. )

I remember when Our #2 Poster Of All Time first started posting here, he'd capitalize Certain letters Almost At random in His posts (just look at how he spelled his display name!) and we all made fun of him for it until he stopped. Good times!

Similarly, I hate obnoxiously loud YouTube video titles, particularly used to garner views.

Or YouTube video titles that are just complete lies done to get views. The worst i've seen is supposedly a demo of Eleanor Rigby by Paul (before the 18 second excerpt was made available) – it was in reality some git who couldnt sing or play the guitar ruining the song.

Typing late at night when the room is mostly dark and the one small circumscribed lamp is not illuminating enough for me to see where my fingers are on the keyboard, and I keep making typos -- particularly hitting the caps lock instead of the shift key and other fun stuff.

My dog is in one of his moods where if you go outside he'll follow you for about a minute before wandering back inside on his own and sitting down. Come back inside and he starts whining about wanting to go out.blue-meanie
