Drivers who wait until you are about 3 inches away from them before they decide to pull out in front of you...and then proceed to drive at a rate of speed that would make a snail snicker.

I won't go into gory details, but every single day, the bathrooms at school lead me to question if most of the student body was raised by wolves.

Our bathrooms are disgusting. Our school hasn't received much money from the council so we can't afford things like toilet paper or soap.... absolutely horrible.

I'd complain. I dont know where you live or attend school emily but surely basic hygiene requirements such as toilet paper and soap are  a standard requirement so it would cause quite a fuss if folks knew. If the council do nothing then i'd be having a word with my local councillor or person from the press.

The bathrooms at my old school were disgusting too. We did have soap and toilet paper and even a tampon dispenser, but it looked as if no one ever cleaned them and everyone just walked around naked and did their needs on the floor. I've heard disgusting stories about the men's bathrooms. Well, the ladies' bathrooms are certainly almost as bad. Blood on the floor and everything. That always made me wonder what the fuck people were doing when on their periods. Walking around naked?

Also made me wonder what's so difficult about going to the toilet. Just do your friggin thing, wipe your ass, wash your hands and leave! No need to make such a mess.

I always tried to avoid going there as much as possible.

We've tried to complain about it but they just say that it's not their fault because they've got no money to pay for it. Everyone tends to take their own tissues and soap, I try to avoid going in there as much as possible. I'm moving to a new, better school in September so it won't be a problem for much longer.

Another pet peeve, when you get really excited about celebrating your friend's birthday party and three girls completely ruin it by throwing up everywhere and just generally being drunk. I was so angry. There's nothing wrong with drinking but when you know that you get that way in no time, stop before you do. Because otherwise, you ruin it for everyone else, including for my best friend (who's party it was). I left early, I don't feel like mothering them when they're like that, they've ony got themselves to blame.

Glad that didn't happen on your birthday, Emily!

On the bathroom thing, isn't that a Health and Safety thing? I'd report them as I walked out the gates for the last time!

^ I know. I feel reallly sorry for my friend though, especially 'cause she can't even drink herself.

And I might just do that, not until I leave though.

That made no sense. If you know people using the word overrated when talking about a band is always objective, then why do you get offended? People say it like it is objective because there is no need to use "I believe," or "in my opinion" every time you say something that is an opinion. They're the ones saying it, so it's implied that what they're saying is their opinion. There is no band or artist who is loved by everyone, so just because you like a band doesn't mean every one else in the world should too. I'm sure you've never said anything negative about any band or artist, right? Everybody has their own opinions, and they can voice their opinions on any band they like. How is that a problem?

A lot of times people do say negative, rude things, which is why I get offended. If they can provide an unbiased argument, that's fine; but that's rare these days. Nobody is capable of providing an opinion without sounding like a douchebag, and that's also annoying. Much of what my read was to the effect of "Nothing they made was new, lucky, spoiled brats, Queen is perfection" You could tell them it took them several years to get a recording contract, and another year and a half to get famous, but they don't seem easy to convince, at all.  I also don't like fanboys.

I don't like that I have the tendency to edit all my posts 20 times before deciding it's good enough.. I used to be on forums that couldn't stand double posting, so maybe it's just an old habit, but I hate that I do it so much. I just always feel something has to be added, because the post is incomplete; or I regret saying something.

Ok, this one really bothers me.

So the weather has gotten much warmer where I am, on average 25 degrees Celsius, which is warm for May.  I like the weather to be more like 20 degrees, when it gets over 25 I don't like it as much, just too warm for my liking.  I'm sure it's ok if you can play in water and hang out on a beach all day, but like most adults I have to work full time.  Heat isn't much fun when you are working.  Basically I like it in the spring but I'm not a HUGE fan of summer, unless the weather is cooler.  Also I take a medication that dehydrates me so it gets much worse when the weather is hot.  

My pet peeve is how people have this thing where everyone HAS to like the hot weather, and you don't you are a gothic freak.   It drives me crazy. This lady was in my store the other day and I commented that it was warm, not even complaining, just commenting, and she says "You're not complaining are you??".  What if I am?  What is it to you, Lady?  Ugh.  a-hard-days-night-paul-11

"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!"

25 degrees Celsius would be nice, living in a tropical country we get 32 degrees during the wet season and 36 degrees during the dry season. You have to pay $10 to experience a temperature of -15 degrees Celsius for 10 minutes, that's just the entrance fee and not the cost to travel to the actual place which could probably cost $30 over-all. But you can always go for a 4 hour trip up a mountain to experience 13 degrees Celsius during the wet season, but still you have to pay $25 for the gas, $150 for the lodging, not counting the food and etc.

The bathroom thing reminds me when I work at McDonald's as a teenager. The women's bathrooms were so nasty I would not even allow my pets to go in there. It wasn't that we didn't clean, cause I was one of the ones that cleaned the bathrooms while on lobby duty when I wasn't at the register, women and kids were just filthy. The men's on the other hand was clean, which is weird cause you always hear about men's bathrooms being dirty. 

List of things: pads or tampon everywhere.

Feces,piss, or blood on the seats

underwear, diapers in the garbage. Really why are you throwing your underwear away at McDonald's.

Alcohol bottles 

Toilet paper strung everwhere

People not flushing toilets! Clogging up toilets! 

I once walked in a stalk where someone completely missed the toilet and threw up on the wall, the garbage can, and the floor. Seriously at least try to aim. 

Men's bathroom:

Strung toilet paper

occasional piss on floor

Thats it. :/

And it doesn't stop at the bathroom, oh no. 

People loved to stuff the garbage cans

Leave trays every where with junk

100 packs of ketchup really?

Did you need that many napkins?

People taking there kids to play in the place in hot weather.  You don't that. Why? Cause then the kid pukes and they expect us to clean it up. 

And after the management treats people, I vowed to myself never to work at McDonald's again unless I have disparately have to.

I hate cold and hot weather. My favorite seasons are Spring and Autumn, not too hot and too cold.

I get you completely. I adore the winter, I adore staying inside when it's freezing outside, going for walks in the park when there's almost no on else out apart from the people that have to walk their dogs. I love the sound of the rain at night. I love it when it goes dark at 4 o´clock. And I can't stand the summer. I just hate it. I hate getting so hot that you can't really get into anything. And I get lots of migraines when it's hot.

I've all of those kind of comments, everyone I know seems to love the summer.

It depends on where you are in the world.  Some places, some times, have summer days that are in the high 70s -- perfect.

As for hotter days in the 80s or 90s (sorry, I don't do metric), I like them once in a while.  Ideally, I'd have a hot day once a week, on the weekend.
