Got some more annoyances to

Got some more annoyances to share.

 

 

- Being grumpy for no real reason: Kinda hate getting into a mood where I'm grumpy but without any reason to really be grumpy. :I

 

 

- Redesign Fever: What I like to call the need to go through a few pages of my sketchbook because I am not as happy with a design/aspect of a design as I thought I was. Even moreso when I think I am happy with something, only to decide NOPE and start the process all over again. Then I settle on a design. And then a month or two down the line the cycle starts again. It never ends. 8I

This subject fills me with Determination

Oh, I got a good one!

 

- When people attack someone because of the way they draw a character

Lets say for example, someone draws Rose Quartz or Amethyst from Steven Universe skinnier, there's a very good chance that a bunch of SJWs are gonna attack the artist for it. Like, why do people make such a huge deal out of this? It's just a drawing, it's not like it's actually gonna harm people or anything.

Peace and love and complaining!

This is not a peeve, obviously XD

 

Can I just say I really appreciate the way this thread is going so far? It had the potential to turn into drama central, but all anyone has done so far is join in and sympathise ("OMG me too!") or very gently and politely disagree.

 

Well done, everyone. Wish it could be like this all the time.

 

Oh, there you go, I found another one: when the forum is not like this thread.

I made the thread with this in mind: If we have a thread specifically for mundane complaints and stuff like that, maybe everyone will be able to get along better in the other threads. 

 

Consider this a 'blowing off some steam' thead if you will. Free complaints about everything and anything in an area where it's completely fine to do so :þ

  • Installing printers on Linux. I can't imagine a more tedious Linux-related task.

 

  • Windows 10- yet again- is absolute trash of the highest trash tier.

 

  • When some company's support doesn't read the actual question and keeps c&ping the same irrelevant 'solution'. So infuriating! I recently read a support ticket to Microsoft and a dude went complete bat guano on the support guys. Good stuff.

 

  • Software that even though the boot process, services and tasks have been disabled, STILL shows up at boot. Get the hint.

 

  • When image-intensive websites use pngs and they don't interlace them. If your pngs are already too huge and not even optimised, who even cares about the slightly larger size. INTERLACE YOUR PNG.

Typos

A few more:

 

-People not using proper grammar/spelling in their posts on a massive scale. A few typos makes sense, but a full post of it makes me a little miffed, particularly if they're long because they get confusing. I'm sorry, I'm sorry! It's just exhausting to read! I do try to bury my grammar policewoman; she hasn't really reared her head on this forum, so I think I have it under control.

 

-When you spot a typo in your own post, but people already replied to it so you can't correct it.

YISSSSS.

Yes. Like you, I don't criticise, because there are lots of people here for whom English is a second language and they do a darn sight better at writing in English than I'd do if I attempted to write a post in their native language: plus you don't know who's got dyslexia or other things which make writing difficult for them.

 

But some posts are painful on the eyes. Sorry, but they are.

 

Also CURSE THE TYPOS. CURSE THEM TO THE DEPTHS OF WHEREVER BAD THINGS GO IN YOUR CHOSEN RELIGION OR MYTHOLOGY.

This absolute nonsense.

There's NO reason for the keys to be different all the dang time. What the heck. I just want to enter the BIOS, keep your stupid keys the same!

Also the model I need to fix is of course, not listed. Time to bash some keys!

 

Edit: Found it. A smol hidden button on the SIDE of the laptop next to the DC jack. Here's the kicker: You have to press it when the laptop is turned off in order for the thing to boot and open the BIOS.

 

Bonus: People who say 'literally' when they should be saying 'figuratively'.

-When people get "poison" and

-When people get "poison" and "venom" mixed up. This is a fairly minor peeve, but poisons are toxins that cause harm when you eat them, while venom must reach your blood directly to have an affect. I forget what it's called when it just has to touch you to hurt, though.

-"It's just a fish." Yes, it's just a fish, but that's no excuse for keeping a betta in a bare, cramped jar or a goldfish in a 1-gallon bowl only to throw away two weeks later. Fish aren't hard to care for, so you might as well do the best that you can for them.

Also, the comet goldfish that you buy at pet stores for a few cents each are actually feeder fish to give to other animals as food. They're babies, and under proper care can grow to be about a foot long (in a pond- living in a bowl tends to stunt their growth). If you have to replace your animals every few weeks, you're clearly doing something wrong.

-I very strongly dislike when people use "chat speak" outside of texting. Even when you're texting, you should have gotten the hang of typing by now, right? I use grammatically correct english even on the rare occasions that I do text, and I'm just as fast. It's incredibly censored my eyes to read all of that, especially when you've got several paragraphs of chat speak. I even have a hard time taking your post seriously and I won't even try to decode it.

-People. Who. Type. Like. This. To. Enforce. Their. Point. Are. Annoying.

Oh, my goodness, the fish-related stuff here, YES! People seem to think fish are expendable, like they aren't lives you need to take proper care of just like any animal. It makes my blood boil! Take proper care of your fish in a properly-sized tank, and they should live for many years!

 

I'm. Very. Sorry. I know I do that every now and then, but generally I'm being slightly tongue-in-cheek when I do. XD I'll stop.

Ribbon the betta splendens flared at my subject.

As silly as it sounds, I am emotionally attached to my betta fish. I'm not really sure what he's capable of, but he's aware of his surroundings both in and outside of his tank and he does a cute wiggle dance every time he sees something new. No matter how smart or stupid he is, I keep him in two and a half gallons of treated, filtered water with a cover to prevent him jumping to his death, complete with silk plants and a hidey hole. I even provide some form of stimulation every day- especially a laser pointer or loud, flashing videos on my tablet screen. (Motion and vibrations fascinate him, so he always comes to investigate.) He's also a fun pet to have, and other than about $100 for the initial setup he's pretty easy to care for. I'm getting a second betta later today, actually.

I hate all the myths associated with caring for them. They don't live in puddles in the wild, and a five gallon tank won't stress them out as long as there's plenty of places to hide and rest. I agree that all kinds of fish deserve the same standards of care as dogs and cats- no cutting corners to spend less money on your pets. Just because they're fish doesn't make them dumb (though some are and some aren't), and they should at least have something to do besides swim in circles.

Also. I. Don't. Pay. Attention. To. Who. Does. This. Stop. Saying. Sorry. I. Like. Egg. Toast.

Haha the poison vemom thing bothers me a bit as well. Most Dutch people do it wrong in English because we have one word for both of these things :þ

 

I feel that any animal should be properly cared for. I ditched the bowl when I was a kid once I learnt that bowls may be bad for fish. I immediately replaced it with a tank. Fish are so easy to care for! A decent filter does most of the work for you, and some fish hardly even need to be fed. Plus, lots of greenery in a tank == pretty aquascape, too.

I heard that most goldfish can live up to grow so very old, too! They just hidequickly because they're not properly cared for usually. It's sad ):

 

I use chatspeak a lot for multiple reasons. Sometimes I'm lazy, sometimes some conditions I have cause a lot of pain in my arms and hands so I tend to shorten down my stuff a lot. Sometimes it's just dumb surreal humour. Though when I'm actually having a normal conversation or something like that, I tend to write as clear as I can-- which isn't very clear to begin with LOL but whatever it seems like people understand me just fine-ish wwww

I also use chatspeak a lot in skype. Stuff's meant to be fast so I gotta be fast. Especially at work or when I'm quickly helping someone out with a thing.

Still, I'd hate to read a wall of text written in chatspeak. That'd be confusing!

*OpenSuse. Horrible distro. Awful everything, literally. There is no reason for anyone to choose Suse over ANY other distro. It's unclear, it hardly works, its shell is hideous, it uses the crappy commands instead of the good commands and it just looks so... kiddy?

 

*Virus scanners that automatically remove stuff. Go away, let ME choose whether I want to keep a thing or not.

 

*Clients who want me to transfer e-mail stuff to a new installation or PC, but leave absolutely NO detail regarding this. No account info, no passwords, no server into, they don't even tell me about the program they use. I have to figure everything out myself. Account info... Extracting passwords, wonder which one of the twenty-four programs they use, and sometiems it's not even software, it's stuff like Gmail... Thanks for wasting my time.

 

*When the boyfriend keeps stealing my clothes so I have to spend ages rummaging through the laundry to find old and gnasty clothes that are warm enough for my job, and then I end up being late for work. (the building is like 5 degrees) I don't really know /why/ he does it because he has enough clothes. 

He left a vest for me last night, but when I wanted to put it on this morning it was gone. I texted him asking where it was (he tends to misplace stuff) and he said he was wearing it because he thought I had something else.

son,

I have been wearing the same vest for a week because he took everything else. (minus 1 day when I used an OLDER laundry vest so my boss wouldn't notice). I'm going to buy a safe and lock up all my things. I'm not even kidding about this. It's so upsetting.

Here comes my peeves.

  • A messy room. Having an extreme case of OCD can already affect your life bad enough, especially if you have a messy room. I always clean it up and it takes an hour or so, and then someone ruffles through my stuff and it alone leaves my room messy.
  • English Anime Dubs. I personally hate English Anime Dubs because, for me, I think they take away the true spirit of animes. I cringe whenever I hear an English Anime Dub. For some reason, it just irks me to hear someone dubbing Anime into the English language. (The voice actors who dubs animes that do a good job are spared, though.)
  • When someone leaves the door to my room open. Must be self-explanatory to you by now.

Yeah, more peeves coming soon, I guess. It's getting pretty late here.

OCD is a weird thing. I personally always have a huge mess at home because of it. I just can't do some things in specific conditions, it's awful. My boyfriend doesn't understand, but he doesn't clean as often as he should because of his ADD so he just forgets LOL

OCD ruins stuff man, it's not normal and I hate it. Nothing good comes out of that stuff.

 

English anime dubs can be awful! Not even just the English ones, though. German dubs are the absolute worst, and Dutch dubs are just two or three famous people doing all the voices.

THOUGH. The Dragon Ball English dub. I watched it all. I couldn't stand Goku's grown up voice (which is the same as his kid voice) in the Japanese version, and I can say that the English dub isn't at all that bad. It's worth it just so I can avoid squeaky Goku.

What is this for we don't need this

More peeves:

 

Card stacks. 

I cannot stand them, especially if they're all messed up. When I see a card stack this is too high, I just hate it. Absolutely hate it. If they're all messed up like when you just kinda throw them onto the stack I just 

No 

Stop 

 

Unsharpened pencils.

I just wow. No, stop, if I'm going to use you, you better be sharp.

 

Antisocial people.

What I mean by antisocial isn't exactly freaking out when I come into physical contact, and I also don't mean preferring my Friday night to be calm and relaxed. Because admittedly, I'm more of an alone person. I mean for example in middle/highschool: When you let someone borrow your pens/pencils/markers whatever, then you ask them if you can borrow something of theirs and they just straight up say "no". I mean, rude? You can use mine, but I can't use yours? 

 

More probably coming soon, depends wether or not I feel like doing stuff.

>Discovering that your cat has pooped directly behind a closed door. And only discovering it by opening said door, and accidentally smearing said poop into the carpet. And then having to clean it up while the cat responsible sympathetically sits by your side, purring and occasionally meowing. Ugh...

 

>Hay fever. I've been sniffling and sneezing nonstop for the last 48 hours, and my usual tablets seem to have lost their effect. Great. Though not being able to smell anything was handy in the above situation XD

 

>People who just keep screaming incoherently in frustration instead of actually telling you what's wrong. Seriously, calm down mate. There's no need for that much noise. Use your words, so I can help you. The worst part though, is that they're usually yelling about simple issues that could be fixed in a matter of moments if they would actually stop and think about it :/

  • Loud parties by my house. I actually cannot sleep without a bit of noise like music or some other noise that calms me down. Loud parties are an exception. When I hear so many people talking over each other it feels as if each one of them has a microphone directly on their mouths. It agitates me beyond reason. And it really doesn't help that tens if thousandths of people live near our home.
  • Slapstick humor. I'm looking at you, Tom and Jerry and Oggy and the Cockroaches and media similar to them. While the way they execute it is quite mirthful, the whole concept is just horrible in my opinion. I mean, this horrible creature ruins a cat's life, and the cat is forced to abduct it. And then this horrible creature uses his or her antics just so the cat cannot reach him. It just, irks me horribly.
  • Gary Stus and Mary Stues. No offense to people who make these types of OCs. It just bothers me that people make such surreal, god-like, perfect characters with no originality whatsoever. (Well, maybe a little)

IDE cables. Disgusting. Horrible. Yuck. I'm so glad they replaced that stuff with SATA eventually.

The worst things are definitely laptop IDE drives. My boyfriend keeps misplacing my things so I'm cutting up the ouside of a hard disk with a stanley knife so I can plug it into my pc... I used to have a good tool for that...

 

When I google thing A and Google bolds thing B in the results like- those two are NOTHING alike and I seacrhed for A. I do not want B. Go away and let ME google the thing, not you.

Yet again, the loss of + syntax is a great one.

um, hi?

Well, I'm back with more.

  • When people on the forum use this huge text size and bold their text and use caps lock to yell at the admins (which only run the forum and not the game) because their game had a small glitch that already has lots of posts and is easily fixed. Like, dude. Chill. PLEASE.
  • Run-on sentences. That's what the semicolon and period are for people- to not have run-ons. Though of course, if English isn't their first language, it's somewhat understandable, especially if they're having trouble with the language. I can excuse that.
  • Grown adults whose first language is English who type like little kids. In fact, I've seen kids type better than some adults like that.
  • When my dad sends me a whole long paragraph in a text message, especially when it only needed a small sentence. Like, texts are supposed to be quick messages, not whole essays. Next time he does that, I'm going to say "tl;dr?" and see how he reacts, I swear.
  • Facebook moms (sorry mom...) "Why have whiny kids when you can just have a bottle of wine? LOL! Say hi to the kids for me, Helen!"
  • Minion quotes.

Like, um, okay? Just why?

  • When I'm typing a huge big wall of text (kinda like this, oops) and I accidently close the tab or refresh it. I'm just like NO NO NO.
  • When I'm working on a big art project and I forget to save and it force closes. I'm getting better at saving periodically, but this was a huge issue.

Minions. I don't get why people edit a picture of them and then put a nonsensical quote somewhere on the image. I mean, you can use images that actually makes sense. Besides, Minions aren't even that cute.

Game soundtrack remixes on youtube. 99,99% are super awful and I can instantly tell which premade garageband and fruity loops assets they picked. 

Sometimes I wish I could find a better 'incarnation' of a theme I already love but the remixed versions pretty much never manage to live up to the originals. Almost every single one of them is bad.

Got Another One

Here's a peeve I thought of while listening to some rock music:

 

When men - real or fictional - compare their girlfriend to a drug. I usually hear it in songs, but sometimes I see it in bad movies, too. I know it's meant to express how much he needs her but...it's really unattractive and just...ew. It's also a tiny bit concerning; not a good sign for how they view drugs and/or women. If the man I was dating ever sang me a song where he compared me to heroine or cocaine, we would need to have a talk and at the very least discuss why that is just not okay. Come up with a better metaphor, guys.

I feel u haha. Like "you're my heroin" or something stupid, and where they don't mean a heroric lady.

It's all so misinformed too. They probably don't even know what most drugs do but heeeeey. What if they took it all a bit more literally?

 

"you're my heroin. I take you because I hate life and whenever you're in my system if feels like I no longer exist".  - Good compliment!

"You're my cocaine. I am a lawyer with a lot of work to do and you're going to make sure I get it done. You make me feel tired afterwards."

"You're my ecstacy. You drain me of all the serotonin I had and you make me feel depressed for a week."

"You're my pot, you make me go to the snackbar at night because I really want a croquette."

 

good stuff. Where are the times when people compared others to foods? Like a cinnamon bun or something. or pizza.

Just a thought.

In fairness, most of the songs I've heard with other-person-as-drug metaphors seem to be implying that it's an unhealthy relationship. I actually can't think of one where it's like "You're my drug, yay, let's get married and settle down in a lovely house with roses and a white picket fence and have kiddies and a Labrador and teach them not to poo on the lawn and take them to ballet and piano classes". It's usually more like "you're my drug and this relationship is destroying us both".

 

Which goes back to the whole not-romanticising-stuff-that-is-bad-for-people peeve, I guess, but there's an undeniable connection between pain and art. Bad relationships often lead to good songs. :P

Yes, But Not This Time

While I do know what you're talking about and that is true, that wasn't the case with the song that inspired this peeve. I don't remember which song I was listening to when I decided to write this, but the artist (male) was comparing his lover to a drug to explain that he needs her and they should stay together. (I might have to go back through my YouTube history a bit to find it; I had autoplay on and this was a few days ago now.) There was definite angst in the song - the man needed to "fix himself" to be worthy of her, that sort of thing - but yeah, in the case where the drug comparison actually bothered me, it was played off as a positive thing.

Eeeeek.

Oh, that's not good. Songwriters don't seem to think about their metaphors somtimes: they think it sounds cool so they go with it without considering any other implications it might have. Oh, that leads me onto another song-related peeve, I'll post it down below :D

Small Peeve

Or when men use small words like 'hot' or 'sexy'. No, we are not just 'hot' or 'sexy'. We are radiant, we are dazzling, strong, a light to them, we are going to mess you up because we got demeaned to 'hot'

Small peeve related to Owl's small one above. Well.....actually....for me this one is really big.

 

When people (especially in commercials) use the word sexy for some random object like food, a car or cloths. I don't know why but it really annoys me. It also makes me want to punch someone when they do that "I'm coming on to you" face while eating a mint or something. I really really hate that. I hate it so much that I would probably get banned from the forum if I used the words that could properly show my utter contempt for such commercials. I also hate kissing scenes in movies with the same burning contempt. The more detail on the kissing or the more noise the kissing makes the more I want to do something something so violent that I'm not saying it on this forum. (A small short peck on the cheek does not annoy me nearly as much as full out making out) That or cuss up a storm ten pages long. Why does EVERY freaking movie feel the need to have a kiss scene somewhere?!!!  (Insert cuss here) you for making me watch that directors who must shove that in somewhere no mater what!!! (Insert flood of cussing here) 

 

 

 

....I don't even know why it annoys me to THIS extent but it does. I would never actually do what goes through my head when I see these scenes in movies but jeez if I fully explained what goes through my head right then I would sound like a psychopath.

He is very inconsiderate at times but he's always completely oblivious about it |D

He doesn't think much.
