what are some things that really bug you?
things that genuinely piss you off?

I thought it would be nice to have a thread to vent about any little annoyance, no mater how big or small.
Any and all complains about the world around you are welcome here!

Sometimes I read posts on here and can't remember if it was me who wrote them. My memory is really bad and I don't remember anything, and I share a lot of opinions with the people here.

Anyway. I went to this chat on discord that's allegedly for NEETs and hikkis and other outcats or whatever, but it's just like pretty much any chat I've seen. Maybe it's as some guy said, "The medium is the message", in that by their choice of platform, they're telling lots about themselves, and it's nothing good. All those chatrooms just end up being inane circlejerks about nothing in particular between a couple of the most persistent posters. The reason I was attracted to it in the first place is not because I'm attached to the idea of "a NEET identity" or whatever, but because it's yet another attempt to find some common ground with other people. And that has been increasingly hard, with more and more people learning about the whole "hikkikomori" thing and being drawn to it. It's a case of "no true hikksman", but I really think that most of the people there don't really belong, and would be better off somewhere else.

I just want someone interesting to talk to, someone with whom I would have more than nothing in common, and who would be equally interested in talking to me. I'm not even sure what I'm looking for. There was a guy I met on /jp/ in 2011 and we spoke for a year, and it was really nice, but then he just dropped off the face off the earth. It doesn't seem like I'm asking for much, but all the people I meet seem to fall into the same 3-4 categories or personalities that I'm just sick of. It's a bit lonely.
>> No. 29944 [Edit]
It just seems like the only people I want to talk to are the ones that don't really want to talk to anyone at all, or are fine with just talking on anonymous imageboards. The other ones are annoying and obnoxious people that I get tired of really quickly. It's catch 22 of sorts.
>> No. 29947 [Edit]
Same. As soon as offline people open their mouth I just want them to shut up.
>> No. 29949 [Edit]
Finding people you can relate to is hard, specially in this day and age where everyone tries to be as cancerous a possible.
>> No. 29950 [Edit]
What I find oddly ironic about normies is how backwards they are. Try talking to an "educated" and "tolerant" person about anything and all you get back is barking about how moral/strong they are. "Trashy" people you can at least hold a conversation with because they're not obsessed with the status game of appearing 100% right 100% of the time.

It's sort of like in high school when I started hanging around the goths. I never really fit in with them either but I preferred them by far to the jockey/preppy type of shithead.
>> No. 29951 [Edit]
There are decent people going undercover among the normies. You'd have to catch them alone, because they can't take the mask off before their other friends, but those people usually seek exactly that kind of one-on-one conversation. Drop some hints and see if they drop some too. Even though they try to "integrate", they are probably just as bored and lonely.

Having actual conversations shouldn't work like a secret society. I'm guessing the problem is it's not "acceptable" to tell a poor conversant to shut up or leave.

Truth. I'd take an honest asshole over a dishonest one (ie: someone that's so self-righteous that they don't realize how much of a prick they are) any day.

I can't stand people/businesses that tape flowers to their pens. I fucking hate using those things. Is it supposed to be a punishment for not bringing your own? The Fuck ever happened to being professional? Every time I go to a doctor/dentist and get handed one of those retarded flower pens, I get the overwhelming urge to plant those flowers in their eye sockets.

File 14883191312.jpg - (8.35KB , 191x126 , 1457129929434.jpg )

they do that so people don't steal their pens.

the flower is used because it's not stupidly out of place with a bundle of them sticking out of a jar, and if you try to put it in your pocket it takes up much more room than it otherwise would and gets your attention (most pen thefts are muscle memory from using your own pen that you don't realize until a while later).

The reason the people never change out the pens when they run out of ink is to fuck with the morons who didn't think to bring a damned pen with them to sign or fill out paperwork when they ought to have known that they would be doing so once they got there.

How much time I waste on the internet. There's so many things I'd rather be doing but I just don't. That includes this post, mind you.

If I spent as much time writing, reading, and watching anime as I do writing posts like these and scouring youtube I'd get so much more done.
>> No. 30046 [Edit]
Oh god this so much. I always struggle to figure out what I want to eat on top of taking too much time eating the food in the first place, that's why I love eating bite size foods like rice, nuts, granola bars, etc.
>> No. 30047 [Edit]
I'm thinking of going with the soylent route to solve exactly that problem. I've had it before and actually kinda like the taste, and I also like the idea of turning food into something to spend less time and effort on.
>> No. 30048 [Edit]
I know what you fucking mean. Lately I've been wasting two to four hours just watching youtube videos, sometimes I even just watch the ones I've already watched before.
>> No. 30049 [Edit]
Glad I'm not the only one. Sometimes I'll be dicking around on YouTube and reading random crap on the internet just to realize 2 hours have gone by and I haven't done anything productive even from a lazy hikikomori's perspective. It's time that would even be better spent playing video games or watching anime rather than idling away.
>> No. 30050 [Edit]
For someone like me who is underweight, soylent is not only inefficient but cost more than just buying cheap ingredients separately. It's a very cool idea though.
>> No. 30146 [Edit]
All the cryptic bullshit that people do and say in social interactions. No, I don't want to play mind games and figure out what you REALLY mean by such and such action and phrase, say what you fucking mean or shut the fuck up. Unless you've got to talk in code because someone is about to kill you, don't fucking do that.
>> No. 30147 [Edit]
>say what you fucking mean or shut the fuck up
I know what you mean and I wish people would. Unfortunately people are petty and get bitter extremely easily so playing games with speech and tiptoeing around what you mean is a necessity. One wrong word and the next thing you know someone is trying to make your life hell. I myself got fired once for asking a teen hopping around with his bike to stop acting like an idiot.
>> No. 30148 [Edit]
I know what you mean! I try to be as honest and direct to people as possible when I say things so as to not confuse them, but sometimes they'll just piss around the issue instead of talking about it or just outright lying.

I'm glad that I'm practically a shut-in NEET that doesn't need to interact with others all that much because I greatly dislike doing so.
>> No. 30152 [Edit]
Maybe people should stop being so fucking sensitive. Words really can't hurt you, and I'd much rather hear someone tell me honestly that they hate my guts and find me an annoyance than for them to lie or avoid the subject, trying to get rid of me some other way that only wastes both of our time. What's true is true, there's no point to getting upset about just knowing the truth. If someone hates me, or find something I do annoying, they aren't helping either of us by not saying it. And this goes even more if it was someone I was close to, if I had them. I'd much rather them tell me honestly if something was bothering them, then even if we don't work it out, we would at least be aware of how each other felt about it. And if the truth threatens to disrupt or destroy a system, that system isn't entitled to it's continued stability. I don't know, maybe I'm not making sense, but I can't see any downside to just saying what you really think unless you can't handle knowing that other people don't agree with you or think things you don't like. I'd honestly rather be shot in the face by someone who hated me than for someone who found me annoying to try to fuck me over in an underhand way.

"Word, that invisible dagger"
>> No. 30165 [Edit]
As a pretty sensitive person, I agree. It's better to be direct than beat around the bush. Sometimes more offensive than to not be direct.

Also it's possible to tell the truth and not be a dick about it, people seem to forget that.

Non-normals do this too, so far I've seen. At the very least failed normals.

Yeah, it's quite gross. It's even worse when you stumble upon someone who does it non-stop with zero regard to the rules of a board / channel / server / game / etc. I'm usually torn between pity and disgust for them.

Daylight savings time is fucking stupid. There's no reason why it should even exist. Clocks should be calibrated to automatically adjust to the changing time gradually rather than all at once by running slower or faster as need be. Or we could just not change the clocks at all. Fuck farmers, all their shit is automated these days anyway.
>> No. 30831 [Edit]
Couldn't one create a time system that slowly changes depending on the time of year so that sun rise and sun down are always at the same time on the clock?
>> No. 30837 [Edit]
It's not only about farmers but everyone who works in the day. It not only saves A LOT of electricity due to it, but it's also important having the amount of sunlight available coincide with the regular working hours, specially construction work.
Seems extremely complex and would obliterate any database available. Massive headache for everyone but recluses.
>> No. 30842 [Edit]
At what latitudes does it work as intended?
In my country it might be abolished next year because it never saved us any energy. More power and fuel is being wasted every time by this countrywide case of hiccups than gained by supposed energy conservation which was estimated at hilarious optimistic maximum of 0.3% and never even proven. It was a pointless illogical fad and people here are glad it's going to end.

I hate shaking hands with people.
Just this morning one of my mom's friends moved in to shake my hand while ignoring that I was slowly backing away and holding food I was obviously about to go eat. Thanks asshole for making me go wash my hands again.
I hate that not wanting to shake hands makes me seem like a rude douche more so than the guy trying to touch someone who clearly doesn't like physical contact with others. Fuck that retarded custom, why can't we just say hi or something without trading germs and dirt?

Leave well enough alone.
I can't stand how damn never every website is run by people who think websites need to be made fashionable and overhaul their layouts to match popular trends every few years. Every time these sites get major updates it's almost always for the worse with this garbage minimalist/metro shit. They remove options for the sake of a clean look. They hide menus and buttons behind other hidden menus and buttons like you're solving a puzzle box. They replace unmistakable images, text, or icons with vague rudimentary shapes shapes. I hate that the internet and much else out there is starting to look like it's designed by fisher-price. As if to say everything's being oversimplified and dumbed down for people who have the mental capacity of children.
>> No. 30890 [Edit]
Yeah, it's getting increasingly annoying, specially in the last few months where sites have "upgraded" to even more minimalism, to the point where it does a 180° and looks messy and disorganized. I find it particularly noticeable in the new youtube, dailymotion and humble bundle. It's obnoxious.
>> No. 30894 [Edit]
they had it with win7. then they went too far.
>> No. 30895 [Edit]
New Youtube is so bad. It can take up to 20 seconds sometimes for the page to load where it used to be almost instant. The weird thing is that the bloat destroys all those animations they use anyway because they freeze up, and then they rush through and you don't see them anyway. I mean the search bar causes a nonresponsive script half the time I try and use it nowadays even. It's ridiculous and I don't know how they haven't reverted already.
>> No. 30898 [Edit]
I have an older laptop, so I thought the clogging was just me. What annoys me the most is, I open a video, the video box loads before everything else, I hit play and full-screen, and then when everything else loads it pulls me out from full-screen over and over. Sometimes I hit pause, it obeys, and then rebels and starts playing again. It seems so messy that I don't understand how they released it like that.
>> No. 30907 [Edit]
This is just a mild annoyance, but it bugs me when I try to Google for terms and phrases to get definitions but instead all the results are related to some movie or song or celebrity.

The close mindedness and stupidity of Americans and the west. Some European countries are cool, but I just really fucking hate the US. There are so many shitty things they've done throughout history that they either think was a good thing, or they just don't know about it. I hate how they actually believe that the US is the best country of all time, and how they still think the world sees them as the good guys. They also fear when a different country starts to rise up in power and ALWAYS feel the need to put a stop to them before it's too late. Every single country the US gets it's hands on, they fucking ruin it! And I haven't even mentioned American culture! The youth thinks its so cool to be bad, to do drugs, to steal, ect. and the media they consume does nothing but fuel this belief. It's pretty much why I watch anime, because I can't stand American entertainment. Their most popular tv shows is garbage like "It's always sunny in Philadelhphia", and their cartoons (while some decent) is for the most part just crap made to squeeze as much money as possible! When I watch anime, I feel for these characters. I cry with them, I laugh with them, but this does not happen with garbage like... Family Guy. A bunch of pop references and fart jokes is enough to make every 12 year old piss their pants and think Family Guy is in any way a "clever" show. Bottom line is, FUCK Americans!

Yes yes I know. Grass is always greener on the other side. No country is perfect. Every country has its flaws, but come on! Everything I said about the US is true!
>> No. 31653 [Edit]
While I'm not going to go defending each and every action the american government has taken in its past, nor will I defend "culture", I will defend the principles america was founded on, which I truly believe to be a good basis for government. Of course, the current state of it is not ideal. One great thing about it is, each state has its own laws and regulations, allowing for a lot of variance throughout the country. Of course, the federal government has been ever growing throughout the last 100-150 years, and corruption is not unheard of. Mass media culture is of course horrible and only has a negative influence, but where isn't it? I don't think that culture properly reflects every single person living in any country, be it America or whatever other place. I live there, and I don't hate it where I am, although it would be better to live in a place with less people. Cities are usually garbage with some exceptions that I do like a bit.

I can't stress how much I hate hand shaking.
I found out one of my mom's friends apparently think I'm an asshole for avoiding shaking their hand. Skip ahead a bit and I came across someone at work who wanted to shake hands, I did it, found out latter he was sick, then got the feeling I was coming down with something myself soon after.
I got over it quick enough, but it's a really shitty custom

Aside from spreading germs, you're simply dirtying people's hands. I mean if I'm about to eat and your asshole self wants to shake hands, that means what I gotta wait till you leave to go wash my hands and now eat cold food because you'd be offended if I didn't shake your hands, and more offended if I washed my hands right after shaking them? I've had this exact scenario happen a few times too.
Secondly, why would you assume someone wants to touch you in the first place? Some people don't like being touched, just leave them the fuck alone and don't guilt trip them into doing something
Then there's douchbags with something to prove who try to crush your hand. What the fuck's up with that? Just don't fucking touch me you cunt bitch whore fag dick shits. Is that so much to ask for?
>> No. 32304 [Edit]
I understand this one. Do you ever sit and watch other people eat anything with their hands? A lot of people just wipe their hands and leave the restaurant. I can't prove that they don't wash them soon after, but somehow I doubt it. They must walk around with their hands smelling like fried chicken, etc. all day and not be bothered in the slightest. So I understand not wanting to shake someone's hand.
