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!

My understanding is that in Japan a lot of the games the West knows as visual novels are called "adventure games", and that we don't typically use this term to describe them since adventure game refers to a different sort of game over here. Eroge, dating sims, and all kinds of things just sort of get dumped under the umbrella term visual novel, even though it doesn't technically apply. I know what you mean though, I start to grind my teeth whenever people refer to manga as "anime books".

What are they supposed to say? This show is impeccable? Unacceptable? Atrocious? There's a reason people don't use these words in casual speech.
>> No. 28119 [Edit]
I assume they're hoping for people to expand on their opinions on the subject matter a bit, rather than spitting out stock responses.
>> No. 28121 [Edit]
Nothing. Why bother communicating if you're divulging nothing of consequence?
>> No. 28122 [Edit]
Yeah, but there's nothing wrong with saying "this show is great because x, y, z."

So you're one of those people.

I do that when I don't want to talk to someone about something. Kind of like when someone asks you how you are and you say you're good, even if you're not and would rather vomit all over them.
>> No. 28128 [Edit]
I do that because I assume the person doesn't want to hear my verbose autistic rant on something they haven't experienced or know nothing about.

Does anyone actually cry when a celebrity dies, or is that just something normal people lie about on their facebook walls?
>> No. 28233 [Edit]
I remember a few months ago when a relatively newer VA who passed away, there were many threads mourning and reacting in an over-emotional way over her death despite most of them probably not knowing her name before the incident. I doubt most people cry over these sort of things, I get the feeling the majority of the time they need to overplay in order to show they care. There's nothing wrong with being sad over it, but the way the do it seems extremely superficial and fake.

Also I hate when people bring it up as a casual conversation topic. "Did you know that X died?" Why the fuck do you need to bring it up as if you're talking about the weather? Show some respect for the person who passed away, goddamn.

I can't stand the *****1 password shit. If someone has a keylogger installed on your device, that's not gonna be any help. Same if someone is watching you type the password in, they'll still see each character you enter. In fact here's a crazy idea; don't type out passwords while in front of people you don't trust. I also can't stand it when I log onto websites and can't find my account number anywhere, but "account ending in 5555" is everywhere. I get it's a security thing, but if strangers are logging into your accounts I think it's too little too late at that point.

I wish I had started getting serious about interest way earlier. I've wasted my middle school and high school years on 4chan and the likes when I could have gotten into so much shit that I have interest in right now. Anyway, this year will be different.

If I waste another year I will hang myself, mark those words
This oughta be enough motivation to do something.

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.
>> No. 29988 [Edit]
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. 30149 [Edit]
Agreed 100 fucking percent. This is one of the reasons I found interacting with females even on a friendly level to be a chore. They seem wholly incapable of honest social interaction.
>> 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.

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.
