Post any moans and pet hates you have here! :)

NOTE: This is NOT an excuse to spam, you must have a valid moan or pet hate, or have a comment to someone elses.
- Spam WILL be removed.
- No moans/hating towards members of the forum both past and present.


Pleasant moaning/hating :P




I'll begin :P

Something that cropped up in a conversation earlier...

Battered sausages from the chippy!!!

I went into a chippy once and asked for sausage and chips, I was confronted with a newspaper of chips and some long thin strip of meat with batter on it. I wanted a SAUSAGE!!! NOT a strip of meat with batter on it!!! If I wanted a battered sausage I'd bloody well ask for one! I should have at least been given the choice shouldn't I?!

</rant> :)

I get angry at how americans try to butcher the english language. Its barbaric that they can drop the 'u' from colour just because they don't want to write the extra letter :x
I ALSO HATE IT WHEN PEOPLE WRITE THINGS WITH CAPS LOCK ON

Well.....
People who complain that its your fault that something is missing, and then they realise, once the item is found, that it was them all along.
Oh yeh, and the stick insect also known as Rachael Green, just the character, not the actress.

Oh yes - Me too. But I console myself that, however much they wish, they do not speak the English language - they speak American!

FIREFOX! LOL, not really, although I do use it.

What I really hate is when there is some sort of problem with computers/my computer/parents computer, etc... you know; just computer problems - that >I< have to fix...

I get the same thing, but its usually my sibling's computer, and they give me 5 minutes to do a 30 minute job, then get ticked because "I'm not working fast enough" :x

I'll add on to this: When you're finished, they always ask "What did you do?" Then, while explaining things you know they probably don't understand (and tying not to get frustrated about it), they grow bored and interrrupt you with a quick "m'kay, thanks!."

I hate technical support calls.
Tech: Do you see the DESKTOP??? It has small drawings on it that represent programs.
User: no
Tech: What's onscreen?
User: right now?
Tech: YES
User: hummmmm, let me see..... Nothing.
Tech: Do you mean, the screen has no images, no colors, no cursor?
User: no. It's not actually on. Should I turn it on?
Tech: (God?? What did I do on my other lives to deserve this??)
haha
Seen funny real life cases like...
User: So, when we have a power blackout the nobreak will stay on?
Tech: Yep
User: And what about the computer??

or another very common one:
Ring ring!!
Tech: Good morning, thanks for calling Technical support, what can I help you with?
User: Where am I calling?
Tech: Technical support sir. (just said sooooo...)

:)

Has this ever happened to anybody -

you get a virus from an "adult" web site (yes, I will be honest here, I look at that stuff, like most teenage guys do), and it just so happens that it HAS to be the only virus your anti-virus won't clean. Seriously, about 50% of the people on the internet must have contracted that thing, so you would think that the anti-virus company that you are paying yearly to keep your computer and over half of the world's computers safe would know about it by then... 8-)

I've had to wipe my computer twice because of that, and then I ditched Norton. Since I got AVG though, its been a lot better...

Because when I wanna look at that stuff, I use my Mac :wink:

The point of the story- I get ticked off when I get a virus because Windows Viruses Suck!

That's happened to me before, I woke up that most sights related to such, usually try to
screw you over in some way with spyware or virii.
Dump.com is probably the only one that wont.

I have a few.

Being British. It's bloody terrible! We're the only nation who will join a queue just for the sake of it, expect (and get excited) when things go wrong. We moan when asylum seekers sneak into the contry...then moan more when they all go back and leave us jobs to do! We really are a joke (and quite rightly imo) to the rest of the world. I was in France a couple of weeks ago watching the news, the final news story was titled "Les Anglais" and there was just a video of British politicians rolling babybell cheese down a hill...this was rather funny. But it does prove what a joke we are.

I heard a fantastic analogy about britain : We're like the small, spotty geeky kid who sticks to the playground bully (America). Whenever the bully threatens another country we show our face round and go "yeeerrrr" and wave our fists in a menacing manner - pathetic isn't it?

The worst bit is, I find myself "acting up" to these traits. I'm sure it is hardwired into us. I even find myself to have a strange liking for anything slightly patriotic - even though I'm completely against most of the things this country has "acheived".

</rant>

Oh, another thing. Why isn't the word "Phonetic" spelled phonetically?????

Hey, I like battered sausages!

Ones i can think of at the moment:

- Apple (as in the company) putting the letter "i" infront of everything they sell, iPhone, iPod, iShop, iSomeOtherPOS
- Microsoft putting the word "live" in everything they sell, Windows Live Mail, Windows Live Messenger, XBox Live, etc
- Harry potter+LOTR, whats the big f**king deal? Its just some crappy story.
- some of the tv adverts at the moment (UK):
-> green giant sweetcorn, with that kid who thinks hes going to turn into a giant so starts shovelling the corn into his face as fast as he can.
-> warburtons "probably does all his baking on a laptop"
-> the milk advert "if cows were meant to be indoors they would have been born with slippers" - no they f**king wouldnt! are babies born with slippers? NO!

there are plenty more, ill see what i can remember :P

When people sign on msn, say hi, you don't reply in 3 seconds of them sending their message, they start saying things like "fine, dont talk to me then" or "fine, ignore me" etc then sign off in a huff!!! Does my head in.

Hehe....

--------
"Hello"

(no answer for 5 seconds)

"Are you there?"

(no answer for another 5 seconds)

"Hello?"

User xxx logged off...
------

I mean for crying out loud, I got the "Hello" the first time, and I won't answer any quicker because they repeat it.... and if they really want an answer they can't go offline 10 seconds after they sent me a hello... idiots... Generally I just hate MSN because people can't use a proper nickname... instead of (in my case) just using "mrpijey" people have to use "Whoah i am so l33t today look at my homepage whee i am cool blah blah".... and they often change it like 5 times a day too. So if you use a real IM you will not know in hell who you got on your list. Same goes for everyone that writes a mini-biography as a nickname.... Geez, I could max out this forum ranting about what I hate :P.

My pet hate is along those lines, except it's when your status is set to 'Away'. But people IM you anyway and get then they get into huff, although your IM status clearly states that you are Away.

Idiots in BMW's on countryside roads. They annoy the hell out of me!!!

Today on the way back from a night camping, there was a lorry about 7 cars ahead of me slowing the traffic down a bit. Sure we were doing 40mph instead of 60mph but at least we were moving. Then, we come to a small stretch of road with a blind summit at the end and this idiotic BMW driver slams his foot down, overtakes all but 1 car behind the lorry, and he only didn't go for the last car and the lorry because he came up to the blind summit! He pulled in about 50 yards from the top of the summit. If something was coming it would have wiped him out for sure.

Bloody idiots. If my me or my mate would have got his registration number we would have reported him to the police for reckless driving. Seriously, these are the sorts of people that kill others due to their bad driving, and one day it might be that sort of person that hits you and kills you or your family.
