irritating things
« on: December 11, 2017, 09:58:05 PM »

1.  Customer service that does not service customers.

2.  While on hold  you have to listen to bad music that is interrupted by a voice that keeps asking you to keep holding because your call is important to them.  (Really?)

3.  Being transferred around a business and have to repeat your story each time

4.  Being transferred to a person who can help and all you get is voice mail that claims if you leave your number they will call you back but never do.

5.  Trying to complain about a product that does not work or does not work as described and the only thing they want to do is give you some more of the same product.

6.  Speaking to a person on the phone who most likely is much younger than yourself and you have no idea what they are saying because the speak at a very fast speed.  (What language is that anyway)

7.  Going to a local department store but can't find a check out register anywhere that is attended.

8.  Going to Walmart.  Does not matter for what or when, it is still irritating.  (Most likely the cause of shopping cart rage.)

9.  Unsubscribing from a spam advertisement but it still never stops

10.  Having to press 1 for english

11.  People who have moved to the South and complain that we don't do things they way they do back home.  (see ya)



I bet there are a lot of other things that you can add to this list.     ~c~ ~c~

  • Having to listen to foreign language recording crap before I find out what number to push to hear this countries Official language
  • Going through the automated responses answering name, last 4 digits of my SS#, and account # only to have to repeat this info to the next 3 foreign people who barely understand English much less speaks it.
  • People who drive slow in the passing lane
  • People who pull out in front of me (3/4 ton van pulling a loaded trailer) in their econobox doing 15mph when they could have waited 10 seconds and had a completely empty road to pull onto.
  • Having to stand in line behind some nasty POS with his pants sagging down so far its a miracle they haven't hit the floor.
  • The double standards for certain people (Hillary Clinton)
  • Winds blowing my boat around at the most inopportune time.
  • Speaking to someone and getting "Whatever" or silence for the response. Silence is the worst it drives me insane because I don't know if the person even heard me.
  • Hypochondriac, like the aunt at the funeral that is just fine until the entire chapel is watching and she goes off like a roman candle flailing on the casket.
  • Get 1/2 way to the back of the store and one buggy wheel turns out to be junk.

« Reply #3 on: December 12, 2017, 05:51:05 AM »

*People that don’t understand how a 4 way stop works.

*People that don’t understand that the merge lane does NOT have right of way. You are merging into another lane. It is your job to slow down or speed up and enter the other lane successfully without causing an accident or traffic jam.

*Dump trucks loaded with rocks.

*The fisherman that keeps getting closer to where you are fishing because you caught a fish

*Parents that take their kid to the park and go to the lake. Walk the entire bank with their kid throwing huge rocks along the entire bank you were going to fish.

*Redundant posts on a forum

*When I go to an online or brick and mortar tackle store and they never have anything I’m looking for.

*When my dog can’t figure out if she wants to be inside or outside. “Let me out dad” “ok let me back in” “wait no i want out” “you know I made a mistake I want to be inside I promise” “I lied...outside is wait wait wait. No I’m good in here thanks”

*Useless small talk. Like passing someone you know in the hall but aren’t friends and they ask “Hi how are you?” You have to answer really fast “I’m good and you?” But honestly I don’t care so why did I ask good and you? I’ve been conditioned.
I prefer a simple nod of the head and maybe fake a smile.

*High pitched sounds. Especially when it’s a persons voice and they are so extremely loud and high pitched in close range of me.

*Most Holidays. Especially Christmas (because they have been commercialized so much it’s all just a money grab.)

*Christmas music. Especially in the office for 8 hours. Someone turn that crap off before I rip out the speaker near me on the roof tile

6.  Speaking to a person on the phone who most likely is much younger than yourself and you have no idea what they are saying because the speak at a very fast speed.  (What language is that anyway)
.
That's a good one. I tell the person, "You have to speak slowly for me." They usually do.
.
Here's one -- Call a place, Person A answers, I ask to speak to Person B, and Person A asks if they can tell Person B who is calling them. Then you give your name to Person A and later Person B comes to the phone and says, "Hello, who's speaking please?" Last time someone said, "Can I tell them who is calling?" I replied, "No, I'll tell them myself." Boy that got a long silence. The above is an example of Person A just being nosy.

Stomping. There's tons more but Rick covered most of 'em.
I'm almost 260# and I can sneak up on a mouse on a wooden boat dock while wearing cowboy boots.
My son's about 150# and sounds like a herd of buffalo in the front yard while barefoot.

The opposite: dragging feet. When he ain't stompin, he's dragging.

Fraudulent telephone calls! I found a way to stop them.

This is the FBI hotline for fraudulent calls. If you wish to report a call press "2", if you are making the fraudulent call press "1".

I have caller ID. If it says, unknown number, invalid number or is from an area code such as 877, I don't pick up. All are risky. They only need a few words to copy your voice.

Same here.
But when not accepting the call it goes to VM and then you have to deal with deleting a VM that is nothing but a beep. Just irritating either way you look at it. lol

YOU TALKING TO ME?    SAID IN A high pitched scream  8) ;D

"Useless small talk. Like passing someone you know in the hall but aren’t friends and they ask “Hi how are you?”

I like to tell them EXACTLY how my day is going, STARTING WITH.......I stubbed my toe getting out of bed and my hemorrhoids are driving me crazy .........and ending with, "AND THEN FIRST THING WHEN I GET INTO THE OFFICE SOME IDIOT ASKS ME A STUPID QUESTION!"

If they are in front of me when asked....I step in front of them so they can't get by.
If not.....I'll follow them down the hall telling them my WHOLE DAY'S trauma!
( My FAVORITE, when it happens to me in the Grocery Store...........I'll follow them all the way down the isle.........and if I have time......ALL THE WAY TO THE CHECK OUT COUNTER!  ~shade
Most folks don't dare to even say HI to me ANYMORE!  ;D

Go into a jiffy type store to get one item. Just as the cashier takes the item from your hand they turn and start a conversation with a fellow worker. "What day are you off next week?" "Sally has two days off?" "Have you heard from Billy?" Yeah, he comes in today at 4." That's when I say in a loud voice, "Can I please be waited on."

Yeah, hate that one too. Heard some guys in another public works department yammering over the radio about who left a tractor with an empty tank and why. Apparently those two departments were sharing it while one's tractor was in the shop.
I picked up my handset (which I do maybe 3 times a year), and told them "Those are great summaries of the problem, but have either of you grown azz men tried to think of a solution?"

We don't have illegals here either if you ask a certain demographic.

The facts don't change just because there was no legal authority making English the "official" language.

English has been the language recognized in this country since the white man took over. Id say its been official by default if nothing else since the constitution and all of our laws and legal documents are in English. Maybe next year we can try Spanish or Arabic and see how well the country reads a foreign language.
