As weird as it sounds, I hate it when people automatically assume that I'm some kind of genius because of my grades. I honestly don't think they're a good indicator of how intelligent someone is. I also have a college reading level but that by no means means I actually can read that sort of thing. Most of the other kids in my grade think of me as some sort of genius but I'm really not. I'm just a good test taker with a photographic memory.

That was long enough to be a rant...

I've got few...

I absolutely hate text language. Well, in general.

And shopping for clothes and shoes, especially when it's for me. I used to throw tantrums when I was a kid when my parents wanted to bring me clothes and shoe shopping. CDs and books are fine, though. a-hard-days-night-paul-11

And... I hate it when people are happy ALL THE TIME. It just get's on my nerves,  a lot. Like how they're always laughing. And smiling. It pisses me off.

When you are pretty much forced to go to an event that you would much rather miss and then people arent happy that you dont want to be there when you are. Also when its encouraged to be different is good but when you are they complain that you are. Basically you dont have to be what youre not but it would be much better if you were.

I hate when people who post their recipes for veggie dishes try to sneak in chicken broth as one of the ingredients. I know you can use veggie broth instead, but it is kind of disheartening that someone would make a veggie dish but not think of  vegetarians.

The corollary to this: people who put meat into a perfectly good rice and beans dish "to make it a meal." It already was. :P

This page is pissing me off (well, not the last one, but still). Believe me, I'd much rather people think I'm smarter then I am then have people underestimating my intelligence. I speak from personal experience as well - I know my stuff. It makes me wonder.

I mean at first I enjoyed it, but it can be pretty annoying, especially when people get cheeky with it.

So you want people thinking you're a doofus?

I've thought of another: automatic spell check. It automatically says that I've misspelled something when I'm really only trying to use the British spelling. Also, my spellcheck is in love with apostrophes and tries to sneak them in when I'm not paying attention.

On a side note, setting my Mom's iPhone to use automatic Polish spellcheck was one of the best April Fool's pranks ever a-hard-days-night-john-6

Because the wind is high, it blows my mind.

Now that's something that really annoys me.

I really hate when this happens:

 

Me: Do you like The Beatles?

Person: (singing) We all live in a yellow submarine...

Me: (getting excited) What other Beatles songs do you like?

Person: (singing) Hey Jude, don't make it bad...

Me: (getting more excited) What other Beatles songs do you like?

Person: Hmm... Those are the only ones I know.

Me: Grrr... (walks away angrily)

Instead of walking away angrily maybe

You: How about (singing) She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah...

Person: Ooo, I didn't know that was The Beatles!

You: Or (singing) Here Comes The Sun, Here Comes The Sun, and I say...

Person: That's The Beatles?!

You: Yeah, and (singing) Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away...

Person: Oh God! I didn't know! Seems I need to find out more...

I just remember I knew lots of Beatles songs before I knew they were Beatles songs. Sadly, I got to realise they were Beatles songs listening to the radio in the aftermath of John's assassination.

I hate when my 32 year old sister acts like we're still 5 on Facebook.  I changed my cover photo this morning to Paul during the "All You Need Is Love" recording.  This one to be specific:

Now, I always have a Paul or Beatles photo on my cover.  I change it pretty often, probably about once a week.  I have a ton of photos on my computer and I like to use them.  It's my business, right?  Well not according to my sister.  She commented and said "I'm getting worried about you".  Trying to not make a big deal of it I just said "Don't be :P ".  Then she goes further and says "You're becoming obsessed lol".  Yeah, she adds the LOL in there to try to counteract the fact that she's just being a bully.  So at that point I just deleted the three comments because she was just being rude.   I wrote her and said "If you want to bug me, please do it in my inbox."  She ended up deleting me, which was fine with me. a-hard-days-night-john-1

 

The other day she made some comment on my status, which was Beatles lyrics, and said something like "Wait..  do you like the Beatles?????"  Yes, she uses that many question marks.  And again, she is 32 years old!

 

Seriously, can people just mind their own business when it come to this shit?  Am I really bothering anybody by changing my cover photo to Paul McCartney?  If you don't like it, you don't have to look!  This is why I prefer this message board and tumblr.  I can relate to people way more.  

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

Silliness from your sister! I'm not keen on your sig, but I'd never delete you over it!

I updated it!  But it still has that annoying gif.  I'm sorry, I'm just not tired of it yet!  a-hard-days-night-paul-7

Thanks!  a-hard-days-night-george-9  Probably my favourite John line.  I like using that term, "tuned in", but I try not to use it too much, on the risk of sounding totally pretentious.  There is a really ditzy girl I work with, she's clueless when it comes to music (among lots of other things).  The other day "I Want You (She's So Heavy)" came on the radio, and of course me and my musician co-worker buddy were all happy about it, and when he said what the song was called she acted all appalled and said "She's so heavy?  That's not very nice!"  We explained to her what it meant and that it's not literal and I said "You're not tuned in!"  lol. 

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"
