    @Strog, off that, I can't stand when people feel the need to walk by themselves and blare their music at the loudest volume possible, for anyone in a 40 foot radius to hear. That's what headphones are for, for your own personal use; don't push your terrible taste in music on me.

    People who excessively grunt in the gym for every set regardless of the amount of weight they are lifting.

    People who listen to music so loud you can hear it through their headphones.

    Any kind of noise for the sake of noise with no consideration given to others I find distracting. I like this thread, I feel better already.

    70 year olds driving and voting scare me :-D

    On the plus side, a 70 year old can take three G's.

    (Was this Bond quoting bait or am I just a Bond quoting nut??)

    I hate when people on this forum make obscure or obtuse titles for their threads that are impossible to determine the meaning of without visiting said thread. ;)


    Being serious now, my biggest sinew-bursting pet peeves:

    *People who chew loudly or who actively try to speak with their mouths full of food.

    *People who finish their shopping and lazily leave their carts out in the open parking lot where they could hit other cars, often just feet from the cart corral. They do this, as if a five foot walk would kill them to put the cart where it actually belongs.

    *People in restaurants who speak so loud you can hear their entire conversation, like you're listening to a commentary track for a movie you never asked to see. In the same theme, people who bring their insolent children to restaurants, and nothing but screams and cries fill the establishment (this one happened to me this past weekend).

    *People who don't look up from their phones when they do anything. These experiences were an everyday pain in the arse for me at college, where my ignorant and dim upper and lowerclassmen didn't have the decency to watch where they were going as they opened the door with their eyes glued to their phones, not watching if the door was going to hit someone, and who ate with people at breakfast, lunch and dinner that they ignored in favor of texting another trivial person until their next class (and no doubt during that class as well). The incessant and cancerous habits of these cell phone addicts have run rampant in the outside world too, and every day is another headache watching them eradicate their brain cells and those of the people around them.

    *Touchy people who always have to grab you at some point in your conversation with them. The types you want to stare at, lift their arm off your shoulder and say, "It's called personal space. You're invading mine."

    *People who gossip and never actually discuss anything of any true relevance or importance. History, politics, philosophy, current events? Damn it all, let's talk about who divorced who or what two people are "seeing each other." These are individuals so focused on other's lives that you get the sense they don't have ones of their own, which is probably more true than anyone (including myself) would like to know. It's one thing to be ignorant and obsessive, but when that obsessiveness only focuses on the trivial, I must keep my distance from you.

    *Other general personality types and groups of people I try to avoid: cat people, heavy talkers, radical Catholics, fans of modern art, Game of Thrones binge-watchers, coffee drinkers, therapists, cryptozoologists, conspiracy theorists, people who use "like" as a comma, texters, tweeters, Facebookers, those that think movies were only made after 1980 and Irish women (not because I dislike them; quite the opposite).

    It's a dang good thing I'm not a radical then. I love having chats with you.

    And whilst I'm here The One Thing That Pisses Me Off more than anything else on this site
    Is that so many people ,not mentioning any names seem to be of the opinion that they know far better than Babs & MGW about how a Bond Film should be made .
    That's it for now end of rant.

    One time I was doing a little shopping and this woman was plowing through isles running as fast as she could with her shopping cart. She would have collided into me if I hadn't jumped out of the way. What the heck is wrong with people?

    I drink coffee. And I like modern art (seriously? All midern art; music, film, photography, paintings, architecture, sculptures etc?)

    Can we still be friends?
