      1.Racism and prejudice.
      2.Objectification of women as sexual objects instead of respect for the mind, intelligence, values, and soul of a person.
      4.Selfish people who only take and never give.
      5.People who have evil intent while pretending to be nice/religious.
      6.People who make excuses for their failures in life instead of doing what they need to do in order to make their lives better and take responsibility for their poor choices.
      7.People who have kids that don't love and cherish them, (by example) passing down morals and values, thus setting a foundation so they grow and develop into healthy adults.
      8.People who use other people.
      10. People who live a fake lifestyle (living above their means) and those who think designer clothing and materials make them someone important in life.

      It's a good thing you put #10 after #4 smile  On the other hand it might give you a good #8 if you didn't ?

  3. ChristinS profile image93
    ChristinSposted 2 years ago

    You know, I'm pretty mellow most times, so it's kind of hard for me to come up with a list of ten

    1. injustice to the helpless - I could divide this up into several more I suppose, but harming kids, animals, the elders, any kind of abuse really to those who can't defend themselves. If you have to pick on and brutalize people weaker than you, you are a waste of oxygen.

    2. Stalkers - been there done that and that behavior is ridiculous and there is very little law enforcement can do to stop it in many areas. 

    3. Discrimination.  Especially when it's masked in "righteousness" or "religion" This includes racism, sexism, and discrimination against the LGBT community, and ageism. - pretty much any ism I guess... Value people as individuals, even if they differ from you, everyone has something special inside them and it's a big old world out here with enough room for all of us.

    4. Margarine - hate it. Use real butter or go home. Same goes for fake eggs - nasty.  Eat a real one, seriously.

    5. Cold calls - I hate it when Skype is on and I get at least 3 calls a day trying to sell me some Google scam etc.

    6. Spammers - get a  life. Unfortunately, people must end up buying from them or there would be no incentive to keep doing it.

    7. Plagiarists - that's right.  I'll DMCA you in a heartbeat.  Steal my stuff, feel my wrath lol.

    8. Liars - now I'm not talking little white lies - like "does this dress make my butt look big".  liar: of course not dear, you look fantastic.  Those lies OK we all do it. I mean chronic, game playing lies when the truth would serve you better - nope, not for this girl. Keep your lies and drama and gossip to yourself. I get ostracized in my small town for not participating in gossip and saying very bluntly that I refuse to participate in it. go figure.  No busy body in this gal. nope. Gossip can harm people and I've been on the receiving end.  I choose the high road.

    9. Vanity sizing on clothes - they do it to men now too. I tried to buy the hubby a "Medium" T-shirt the other day which is what he wears.  he's long and lean.  I order it for him, it arrives and he could swim in it.  It's not "medium" if it's large.  Standard sizing should be standard!

    10. Gym rats.  I love exercise and getting fit.  I've been doing distance running for the first time at 40.  I lift heavy weights - and I will never do any of it in a gym.  Gyms are stinky, the people in the one near me are rather obnoxious and gossipy and just no.

    lying, cheating, jealousy the other 7 are still manageable

  6. Melissa Noon profile image92
    Melissa Noonposted 2 years ago

    I would say:

    1. Bullying- I cannot stand people who bully and I always feel I have to be the person to stand up for the person who is being bullied.

    2. Cheating-I understand that the world is a unfair place and sometimes we feel attracted to people we shouldn't but if you really love a person you wouldn't cheat on them.

    3. Murderers and rapists- I am sorry I find nothing redeeming about people who would do such cruel acts upon another people.

    4. Stealing-I don't mean people who steal a candy bar because they are starving but people who steal for the purpose of getting rich. I understand how it is like to have no money but stealing from others is not the way to go.

    5. Bragging- it is alright to say you got a new job or got your book published but if you are just going to keep rubbing it in people's faces you are going to start looking mean.

    6. People who are always negative-I don't mind hearing about your bad day once in a while but all you talk about is how the world has done you wrong and blame everybody else for your bad day, it gets tiring.

    7. Frozen- I am sorry but if I hear that song one more time I think I will go insane.

    8. People driving with cell phones-hello the light has been green for ten seconds and you are too busy looking at your phone to realize. Not to mention you have a greater chance at getting into a car accident.

    9. Animal abuse- a person who abuses a animal is not a person anybody should want to be around

    Same as...

    10. Child abuse

        They even have a hard rock version of the song. It is just awful. It wasn't even a good movie

      ChristinSposted 2 years ago in reply to this

      Oh look - a kindred spirit smile we might possibly be two of the maybe handful of people on Earth that don't blurt out the song constantly.  I have friends that "sing" it back and forth to each other on Facebook.  I just don't get it I guess.  I haven't even made it all the way through the movie yet.  My youngest son loves it though. Of course he's only 5 lol.

    1. Circumcision.
    2. When children are not taken out of abusive situations.
    3. Catfishing (the internet kind).
    4. The "dead baby card" that is used to force women into pregnancy/birth choices they don't want.
    5. Cutting the umbilical cord immediately after birth. 
    6. People who expect help but won't help themselves.
    7. Sex slave trade.
    8. People who think that personal experience is the equivalent of a peer reviewed study.
    9. People who pay for SEO.

      MORE THAN TOTALLY AGREE with #4 and #6, especially #6, we have so more people who can be classified as moochers or as my late father aptly stated, PARASITES who want the world to OWE them.  So many people have the rescue me and owe me mentality and I am getting sick of it!

    6: My husband peeing outside
    7: Stuffed animals that sing (I hate them so much!)
    8: People who are bullies
    9: Individuals who use unfair tactics to get status (sex, money, etc.)

      Brings back memories of youth. Thank you for posting this.
      Now for MY list:
      (1) Overprotective parents who refuse to let their children have any independence nor initiative.
      (2) Parents who abuse their children.
      (3) Pro-lifers who refuse to acknowledge a woman's right to reproductive freedom.
      (4) Parents who knowingly have large families thus putting their children in poverty and want, resulting in such children doing without the rudiments such as proper food, health care, and clothing.  This is SELFISH and CRUEL on the parents' part.
      (5) Parents who inculcate their children that their religion and lifestyle are the only acceptable ones and that others with different lifestyles are errant in their beliefs.
      (6) Insurality among racial and ethnic groups. There are those who believe that their particular race and/or ethnic group is superior to that of other racial and/or ethnic groups. They inculcate this insular and parochial thinking to their children, making them highly suspicious and mindset of other racial/ethnic groups. That's sad because we're ALL ONE. PEOPLE are PEOPLE.
      (7) Prejudice against LBGT people.   Uh UH, this is totally uncalled for.
      (8) Prejudice against childfree and 1-child families.Childfree and 1-child families are families too.  However in this pro-natalist society, families are thought of as families with 2 or 3 more children.
      (9) Agism.  Old people are oftentimes devalued in a youth oriented culture.   Age is viewed in our youth oriented culture as something diseased and abnormal.  That is a shameful attitude to have.

    1. Society. There's something quite wrong with it.
    2. Dog poo. Wish it didn't exist.
    3. Telemarketers. Wish they didn't exist.
    4. Crowds. I am a lone wolf, not a crowd person.
    5. Bad dining experiences you waste lots of money on.
    6. People who put others down all the time.
    7. The lack of utopian vision for humanity by governments.
    8. Sitting next to stinky people on public transport.
    9. People who drive too fast or too slow.
    10. Real dumbos who expect everything to be handed to them on a silver platter.
