Small things you hate

Recommended Posts

This is Not a reference to a certain politician's body parts!

I hate it when I'm listening to music while driving the car and the idiot musician thought sirens in their song is A Good Thing, so I'm desperately searching for a fire truck or an ambulance or a police car and looking for a spot to pull over my car.

I hate the fact that almost nobody, including myself, changes their iPhone ringtone, so I'm regularly trying to find my phone when out shopping because somebody else's phone is ringing. I don't change mine because when I did before, I found the ringtone didn't register in my brain and I missed calls. Really. :blush:

People’s lack of spatial awareness. Unfortunately, this applies to so many aspects of everyday life.

I also hate when people repeat themselves just after telling you something.

May be dumb question, but did you mean spatial awareness?

It was auto-correct, right? :P 

Autocorrect is one of those things I hate. As for ring tones, I went through a list of the most popular ones and picked one from the bottom of the list.

Try to get over that one, because there is a high chance you will someday have an elderly relative or friend with dementia, and constantly repeating oneself -- and especially asking the same question over and over again -- is one of the main early signs of that problem.

Similar to this, I hate radio commercials that include car horns going off. 

It usually takes me a few seconds to realize it was the radio, during which time I'm looking around for the motorist who has the audacity to beep at my driving.

I loathe the way my light switches to the kitchen/pantry are laid out. They are side by side, one side lights the pantry and one side lights the kitchen. Nine times out of ten I guess incorrectly which switch lights which space. You'd think by the law of averages I'd guess the correct swith at least close to half the time. But Nooooooo, I guess wrong almost every time. The light switch has given me a complex, ive self trained to pick the wrong switch over and over and over. Im aware I do this, yet tommorow......I'll surely pick the wrong switch yet again!!

There is a rule how they should be assembled. The light that is more to the left should turn on from the left switch and vice versa. Does this help? :ph34r:

Wrong context. I have a 97 year old grandfather who suffers from dementia, and my late grandmother did as well. I’m talking about younger people who tell you the same story every day for a week. Or people who just repeat the same joke several times a day. Stuff like that.

I hate it when I switch cars with my wife and she a) changes the radio station and B) leaves the seat in a setting, where I can barely squeeze in without needing an extra joint in my legs.

I hate when I have to repeat myself multiple times to be understood. I have a soft voice.

Yes. What? What? Say again! Huh? Why don’t you just speak up?! Because damnit it takes a conscious effort to try and speak at a louder volume. Might as well ask me to improve my eyesight while you’re at it.

 

Loud eating noises are a serious challenge for me...

Your own or that of others? Because I didn't realize I was a loud eater until I was in a lecture hall in college eating a bag of Chex Mix.
