It annoys me when people just talk to at you about nothing. Literally nothing. They tell you things that no one would ever care about under any circumstances. Like what route the took to get to your house for dinner or wherever you see them. I think this can be blamed on social media. Where else would you get thirty people commenting on something as mundane as a picture of your food? Who the hell cares? I guess its fine if you really want to post a picture of everything you eat on the internet, but why carry that irrelevant bullshit into actual conversation?

My brother's ridiculously good looking friends coming to our house at unsocial hours and I always look like dead warmed up- today I wear the flattering combination of a Dalmatian pyjama shirt and purple pants with pink reindeer on them- my hair is also like a birds-nest….charming

Wow, where to start?

  • When there's a horizontal line of girls jabbering about nothing and walking as slow as sloths when I'm trying to get to class
  • When little kids (or sometimes teens) say, "I didn't do nothing," when they obviously have gone against the rules and don't even use the proper grammar to lie (*sigh* that's what I get for living in south Georgia).
  • When people leave their shopping carts in the parking lot (which I am terribly unused to, because I grew up where you had to insert a loonie into a shopping cart, and you would get your coin back once you put the cart back).
  • Asian problem: When people meet me, I have to introduce my nationality as well (I usually say, "Canadian" since I was born there to mess with their heads :))
  • When people snap their fingers in your face to get your attention. Always have hated that, always will.
  • When little five years olds are screaming in the bathroom and "singing" Fancy at the top of their little lung sacs (happened last week after I got sunburned at the beach).
  • When I realize I'm breathing and try to think of something else to involuntarily breathe but then I remember I'm trying to forget and then I am voluntarily breathing again (this ever happened to you?)

This

I have a similar problem, or I should say had (hopefully I won't encounter it again, I definitely had it in middle school a-hard-days-night-john-2), where people would stop to talk to their friends in the middle of the hallway. Every time I was at my locker and someone was going past and stopped to talk, I'd apologize and wave them on. It disrupts the entire flow of the hall, and the fact that we only got three minutes between classes didn't help. But yes, people (not just girls, but usually) walking EXTREMELY slow in the hallway bothers me to no end. I usually go at an average speed in the hallway, but when things got crazy like that, I'd have to ditch anyone trying to walk with me and just do my best to weave through the slow-moving lines (they almost always had a hole in them in my experience.)

People who don't bring their supplies to class every day.

I honestly get fed up when I hear someone say "Hey can I borrow your pencil? Hey can I borrow a sheet of graph paper? Hey can I borrow your water bottle?"

I have more school pet peeves than anything, I now realize. This as well as the hallway one annoys me. Sometimes I feel guys do this because it makes them look "manly" or something, because I really can't figure it out. Preps (and I use this term very loosely, as it was introduced to me being used as such – basically it was used to mean rich kids who hang in cliques) usually have money, yet the male ones are almost never prepared for class. I also never gave them pencils, on occasion I'd give paper, and that's it. If one asked me "got a pencil?" I would say 'no', even though I always had several spare pencils.

Which brings me to another school one – when you lend someone a pencil and they lose it. This seems like nothing, but I'm sure you can hold a pencil until the end of the day – I always asked the person I lent one to to have it back by the end of the school day. I had a sort of unspoken policy that if someone could lose a pencil in six hours, I couldn't trust them to hold anything else and I would stop lending them anything.

Keep bringing on the school-related ones, I'm sure I've got more to contribute.

If you're lonely, you can talk to me.

That does sound like a good policy to me. I mean, if they can't even keep a pencil for a few hours, what would they do with something bigger and of more importance?

People who put their bags on the seat next to them on public transport (especially when the bloody bus/train is full) Grrrr….

Also: 

Warning rant ahead- I have no problem with the vast majority of men, y'all are lovely but there are always creeps:

People (particularly men) full out creeper staring at me. I was in Germany for the last 2 weeks (hence why I wasn't online), I wasn't wearing anything reveling just boring dresses and everyday without a doubt loads of men would just gawk at me. a-hard-days-night-paul-3 I'm not a flipping animal in the zoo!

Another man (who looked about in his early 20s) came up to me when I was sitting in the shopping centre on my own and (me day-dreaming not paying much attention), said a chat-up line to me. I wasn't listening until the end but I distinctly heard "bed" and "together"…fucking creep a-hard-days-night-paul-11

Also men who beep at me when I'm walking around town, it feels bloody awful and these idiots think they're complimenting me by treating me as an object. 

I have far more stories like these-unfortunately.

ahdn_paul_06 There always seems to be something about that in foreign countries. Happened to my sister a lot.

Problem is, even with girls I'm close to, I think even just me approaching them is creepy, so I usually stay away. Talking, even worse. And I'm honestly scared to compliment girls TBH a-hard-days-night-paul-7

Yeah, this, really.

Hate the guys thing too, especially the beeping and whistling. I'm never sure if they're serious or sarcastic. I also hate it when people stare at you from head to toe, do you know what I mean? It always makes me feel so small, like they've grabbed a cauliflower and see if it looks fresh and good or something.

God I hate the staring so much. The other day I was eating lunch by myself in a coffee shop sort of place, and this guy just sat down next to me and started talking about all this weird shit about casinos and ended up suggesting that he and I "take a drive to Vegas in his van" a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

Usually it's just annoying, but doesn't it kind of actually scare you sometimes?

When I do a Google "Advanced Search" for something I know exists, but still can't find it.  Example: I was certain I posted a comment here at Beatles Bible about a piece of music called "The Carnival of Venice", but I didn't want to bother searching for it here at Beatles Bible (that's another pet peeve of mine; but I digress…).

So I go to Google "Advanced Search" and type in the phrase "carnival of venice" and specify the Beatles Bible website.  I got this:

"Your search – carnival of venice site:http://www.beatlesbible.com/forum/ – did not match any documents."

So now I have to go plowing through threads here at Beatles Bible.  After an hour, lo and behold, I find it:

http://www.beatlesbible.com/fo…..4/#p125557

Google can't have the excuse that my post was too recent -- it was June 25 for crying out loud!

I'm used to it now, been happening ever since I was about 14 a-hard-days-night-paul-10

Generally two words starting with "fuck" and ending with "off"* is the response that tells them I'm not interested- that is only if they talk to me though if you're generally staring I just give you a look which tells you in which general direction to go. 

@MrMoonlight I get it in Ireland as well, it's just more in the cities that I get men beeping their car horns at me, in my town** the men don't care so it's a win win a-hard-days-night-george-9 

It is an absolute pain in the arse though as I generally am not interested in your average 40 year old man a-hard-days-night-paul-10

*Also the phrase "my dad's a Garda (cop)" works ridiculously well .

** One of my friends was walking along with her cousin to the nearby swimming pool in my town. Whilst walking there they noticed a man was creeping up very closely behind them, they took a couple of weird turns just to make sure that he was following them and then my friend pretended to walk to our nearest police station and go inside- the man immediately turned and began walking (very fast might I add) in the other direction.

Hearing those type-of stories ^ kind of sobers you up right?

When it's 9:36 at night and the last time you ate was at lunch, only haven eaten a chicken sandwich, and you had swim practice for two hours later on. My poor little tum tum just can't handle it anymore.

Also, my mom made pot roast (so yammy!) so I want to save a little space for it (in my case right now, a lot of space). In fact, it's supper right now! I'll be back . . . with a bigger belly.
