May I? And please, I am not one to run ahead.
I hate (the) look on a person's face when you buy them a birthday gift or give them a Christmas present and they try so hard to fool you into believing that they like the gesture when you can tell by their facial impressions and fakery in their voice that they hate it.
I hate that.
Me too! I grew up in the UK and was always terrified of spiders. I had never seen a cockroach when I moved to Africa in my thirties. The first time I met a cockroach flying down the corridor towards me, I lost all fear of spiders or any other creepy crawly - they all paled into insignificance by comparison!!
I hate how little respect people show one another. I could give a long list of things, but I think most of them go to that lack of respect. This self-absorbed selfie society we are going to is something I just don’t like.
Earthquakes. I was born and raised in a city on the west coast that is well known for its “shaky ground.”
Here’s another one: People who smile in your face and stab you in the back.
Spiders! specially the ones that gallop towards you across the floor as though they are on steroids!
And two faced people!
Oh and beetroot!
Cilantro, internet trolls, people who tailgate, Facebook, tv screens with sports in every restaurant, holiday office parties
That cat-hair tumbleweed you find vacuuming under couches, when you have a cat. Although I suppose it would be even more annoying to find those when vacuuming if you didn't have a cat.
Drivers who, on a turn, go into the far lane immediately instead of going into the closest lane first. If enough of them do it, they make it impossible for you to change lanes if you are doing the correct thing and turning into the closest lane first. Which means you're forced to do what they do.
Also people who pass you in a parking lot. Have had it happen twice, always blows my mind. Also, giant trucks that block your view of traffic. Why such big trucks? Also the drivers of those trucks never know how to park them. They usually take up two parking spaces or park crooked so that you can't use the space next to them because there's no room for you to get out of your car.
I have an acronym for such drivers that also is the name of an auto manufacturer. F.I.A.T. (aka F**k In A Truck). Whenever I see one of these overcompensating for something idiots charging down a road, black smoke pouring out of the stacks coming out of the truck bed, trying to use their misused truck as an expression of their needless rage I just think to myself “just another FIAT.” (sorry about how dark and angry this was. I drive for a living, so I get to see the worst drivers Ohio has to offer.)
Social media/mobile device addiction. No one's talking about it. Everyone's too busy being a part of it. I do work and engage with people deeply here, online classrooms, and sometimes on Google+ communities. When someone walks by me on the sidewalk and whips out their phone in lieu of glancing up with some dignity, I want to take their phone and snap it over my knee. Wake up.
I would think that part of that is that people are too afraid to speak to one another in person without offending each other. Social Media eradicated civility but there still is this need for avoiding uncomfortable situations. People end up with this online ego that can’t be maintained in a real-world setting. When I get home my phone stays in the kitchen (when I get on my laptop and do the same darn thing that people do on their phones).
I also have issues with people who are addicted to their smartphones. The CBS affiliate here in Pittsburgh recently called “smartphone addiction” a “positive addiction.”
@gregory Not to mention the uninhibited behavior you find there. Facebook has become a repository for every angry person on the planet (even though this post may seem hypocritical, gmwilliams asked, lol) . I would imagine it's the same on Twitter. I left those platforms looking something that could only be found in places like this. I wasted so much time checking notifications. My productivity skyrocketed the moment I left. And my level of civility along with it.
Christmas commercials before Halloween.
People who walk behind your car in parking lots when they can see your backup lights are on. Or speed past you as you are backing out, without knowing how fast you will back up. It's dangerous.
Couples and families together in restaurants, who are all ignoring each other and reading their smartphones.
I dislike people who walk slow when I am trying to get by. It is one of the small things that frustrates me.
Shopping channels. I remember an old Mama’s Family show where Vicki Lawrence (a.k.a. Thelma Harper) became addicted to a shopping channel and ended up having a living room full of junk and a credit card bill a gazillion miles long.

An old woman dressed to the nines. A loving daddy. A beautiful woman who's humble. A man who stands up for the weak. A weak man who finds strength. What delights you?

Which is your most favorite and least favorite member of the Spice Girls?Scary, Sporty, Baby, Posh or Ginger ... My favorite is Baby. She not only has talent, she has a great stage persona. Least favorite is Posh. Not just because she's married to David Beckham, but because she often looks like her...
