What gets your goat? Vent thread

I don't know if there is a topic for this already or not. So... What gets your goat?

For me it's a lot. I used to be the quiet type. Never said much. Always too shy to ask a girl out in high school. But now that I'm older there's a lot of stuff that just irks me. Oh and I voice it. There's nothing I won't say to anyone anywhere. And I don't care who I offend in the process. I've been very mild tempered on this here forum. Mostly because I like it and don't want to get into trouble with the mods.

I've been peeved all day because I ripped a hole in the sleeve of a brand new Carhartt shirt today.
Stupidity really gets my goat. I just can't take stupid.
Egotistical Jerks- I hate them too
People and how they drive. People in general. Not all but most. I think it's the change in society. Uppity types and their freakin' over priced foo foo coffee drinking, poetry reading in the coffee shop as if anyone cares, high class thinking ways of life with no regard to anyone but themselves.

Christmas erks me. Who the heck wants to shop at 4am the day after Thanksgiving? And people running people over to get some cheap, made in China piece of crap gizmo. That gets my goat.

Made in China gets my goat.
America haters get my goat.
Hollywood. pfffft. Let's not even go there.
There's too much to list. I'm kind of peaved tonight. Is it obvious? I need a drink...

Mean Harri, if you drink down some bitters I swear all your troubles will go away, LOL.
That or we need to get you into a yoga studio. You could use a few *oms* right now.
Sorry you had such a pissy day. Now I need to go think about what irks me...

I am too tired to think of everything that gets my goat, but I have to agree.....I dislike Hollywood too. I will post more as they come to my mind. Oh, the drug prescription commercials....especially the Viagra and Cialis ones. HATE IT! These are worse for those of us who have young children. Although, I would hate those anyway.

I hear you on the bad drivers and all that (blinkers people! USE THEM!) but Christmas?!?!? Maybe it's because I don't do a lot of in-store shopping (hooray for the internet, right?) but I love Christmas. The decor, the music, winter in general, the smells (pine and Russian tea are high on my list)...all good stuff if you ask me.

Here's a pet peeve of mine: texting when an actual phone conversation is completely possible. Sometimes someone will text me, then I start typing out a response and then think to myself, "what am I doing?!?!" and then just dial the number.

Hollywood doesn't bother me, either. I really like the current state of the movie industry. Big budget studios have the money they need to have really impressive special effects but at the same time low budget independent movies are still being made left and right and are profitable as well, if on a smaller scale.

I'm with Teddyzapper on the spelling. I did the edit (irk for erk) and I hope you don't mind that I did that, My Mean Mr. Harri.

The last poster just reminded me of one....can't stand when people text when they are talking with me. Once in awhile if it is an important call/text but when they keep grabbing the phone/IPod or whatever it is to see if they got another text and then text back, etc. etc. that really bugs me. It has just recently been happening....even a worker in a store!

Me too, I agree 100%. Movies are one of my favorite forms of entertainment! Oh, here's a HUGE pet peeve of mine. Those blasted IDIOTS who insist on talking in the movies, opening wrappers of candy during the movie, people kicking your chair, etc. Major pet peeves. That's probably why most of the time I just wait for the DVD release.

It is the immorality and the liberalism of Hollywood that I cannot deal with. It shows through in most movies as well. You can hardly go to much anymore without immorality/smut, overdone violence etc. showing up. There are still a few respectful actors/actresses and movie makers, but few and far between.
