Or a group of people standing around chatting in the middle of the walkway, forcing me to go around or walk through.   

Another annoying thing - if they see that you're trying to get past them, yet they still don't move.

I'm somewhat annoyed at how it is often said that love cannot exist without hate. Usually, the argument goes like 'as there's no light without darkness, there's also no love without hate. They are both two opposite sides of a coin and one is needed to define the other.'

I totally agree about the bit on light and darkness but transferring this concept to love and hate simply doesn't work. Because darkness is the absence of light, so you have either light or no light which equals darkness. But hate is by no means the absence of love! The absence of love is indifference. Hatred may be the opposite of love but that doesn't mean that hate and love are two sides of a coin which define each other. To define love one only needs the absence of love, so indifference. This proves that there's no practical use for hate, it's a totally unnecessary and destructive feeling and its existence certainly shouldn't be justified by saying hate is crucial to define love as that's simply not true.

The Beatles got it right: All You Need Is Love , there's no place and no use for hate whatsoever.a-hard-days-night-ringo-10

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

@Martha Nathaniel Hawthorne once made a very similar observation in The Scarlet Letter:

It is a curious subject of observation and enquiry, whether hatred and love be not the same thing at bottom. Each, in its utmost development, supposes a high degree of intimacy and heart-knowledge; each renders one individual dependent for the food of his affections and spiritual life upon another; each leaves the passionate lover, or the no less passionate hater, forlorn and desolate by the withdrawal of his object.

I read that novel some years ago, and immediately thought of it when I read your post. I quite concur!

I'm convinced that digital cameras and camera phones are some of the worst things to ever happen to photography. We were better off when we were limited to twenty-four pictures per roll. Now it's become a habit for many people to take way too many pictures at the most insignificant occasions. Can't they just enjoy life without aggressively documenting the moment at every turn?

People who say the Beatles were over rated,confuse the Stone Roses with the Rolling Stones, and then, when you ask who they listen to,they reply Justin Bieber,Lady Gaga,or the latest pile of shite from the X Factor. 

That saddens me greatly. Oh, another annoying thing is people who are literally stuck to their mobile phones,or when you're on a bus, and the person on the phone talks unnecessarily loudly so that everyone hears their conversation

That is in line with one I may have already posted; people who either enter or exit a building and immediately stop, preventing others behind them from doing so.

Same with people suddenly stopping and blocking aisles, pavements etc.

Oh and another rare meanmistermustard post. I can relate, I might have already mentioned the time where two people deliberately blocked the stairs by going super slow.

Somebody knowing the Stone Roses and not knowing the The Rolling Stones is surprising to me. I never said anything about liking and I wasn’t talking about modern music in general.

Here's another Pet Peeve of mine:  when you're trying to sign onto a website and they require that you type in the distorted letters you see (so they can make sure you're not a bot), and:

1) they capitalize some of the letters so you panic and don't know if you have to type them in cap and the others not in cap

2) where you type in what you swear are the letters you see, and it still doesn't work.

They can put a man on the moon...paul-mccartney

I don't mind captchas, but I hate what they replaced them with. "Click all the pictures with cars," "click all the pictures with street signs," "click all the pictures with golden cheese graters." The pictures are so small and my eyes are so bad that it takes much longer than looking at funky text.

Me and my friend missed a flight to Newark where we had a connecting flight to Barcelona. It was not a fun experience. There was another flight to Newark an hour later and we didn't end up missing the flight to Spain, though, thankfully.

OMG YES. And I especially hate it when they ask me to click on things in Spanish that I don't know the Spanish word for. Like I just have to guess what they want me to click on.

Okay, it's rant time. 

A little while ago, I wanted to sign up for something and I found that - for some reason or other - none of the email addresses that I had would work. I tried to get a brand new one, but I found out something that pisses me right off. Basically all major email providers require you to attach a phone number nowadays. They require it! Look... if you want that extra account recovery option, fine. That's your right. But you should also have a right not to choose that option. The more data about you floating about on more sites, the more likely your information is to be stolen or abused. I don't want scammers finding my number and calling me at all hours of the day and night. Think it sounds far-fetched?  Remember when all Yahoo accounts were exposed to hackers? Yeah.

Now the Gmail accounts I had already have been pestering me to add a number to them. They are pretty much refusing to take no for an answer. Google, politely F off.
