I have 2 starters that "piss" me off:
1. Asinine commercials that beg for money for "troubled animals!" In some countries they eat those cats and dogs to stave off starvation!
If begging is necessary, do it for the "human animal!"
2.To see billions of dollars being wasted to build or add onto buildings used to praise a mythical god!
That money could be better used to improve the lives of hurting human beings!
Preach myth and superstition in a galvanized iron building or in a field on a nice day!
People who put up threads about serious issues like freedom, integrity, love - and then comment on each post as though they are the arbiter of such things, as though they have any idea of the answer, in a god-like hectoring manner that betrays their intention as much as it illuminates their own narrow mindedness.
People that preach kindness and giving-but get to the top, by stepping on others so they can have their preachings heard,
People that keep getting pregnant and having children, but have no job- no want for a job or to better themselves-just live off of welfare and complain that it is society that is keeping them down or even worse, blaming their children for ruining their lives.
People on a cell phone when standing in line or at a cash register.
People who are deliberately obtuse, or purposefully misunderstand a statement or gesture just to provoke an argument.
People who pick at every mistake to make you sound stupid.
People who refuse to have open minds about anything.
people who judge, without having a clue about who they are judging
people that are so quick to say what you are doing wrong-rather than help you do what is right
cant stand when people are stupid to the reality of their lives
the salvation army...
i had to stay there for a while due to my mental disabilities. i was greatful to them. but one month after i signed in they changed their program. they told me i would have to start attending their church sessions and bible classes or be kicked out. i asked them what happened to my freedom of religion?
they said i gave it up when i signed the paper for their help. so i left and was homeless for a while. to this day i'm still angry at them for taking away the few rights i had.
I hate it when Hubbers leave Hub Pages. I may not always spend all my time here, I may get a job, or something better. But here, to leave is just like cutting off a limb.
I am broken enough as it is.
Toilet seats in the upright position and hair in the plughole!
Hypocrisy drives me insane!
(Like when someone calls someone else out for being "rude" or for "attacking," when they themselves are frequently rude and the attacker.) That sort of thing really is annoying!
The thought behind the 'Tit for Tat' way of doing things. If you dont do this for me, then I wont do this or be this or help you in any way. If you do this for me-then I will TRY to help you out at some point in time. I really hate that!
Why cant anyone just do things to be nice, and not want anything in return for it?
Why cant we help out-because we want to make life easier/rather than harder for someone?
Why are there so few people in this world that one can call on for support-and know that if they receive any type of support or help/ it wont come back and bite you on the a** to repay them for that help-when you may not be in a position to pay them back the way that they are requesting???
People who judge rather than understand
Abso-effing-lutely! Defense, I'm claiming your list as my list, too! Perfect! Well done!!!
Ignorance. Actually its not so much the ignorance but people spouting it off, for example today I was surfing the web and came upon the forums for the movie Avatar and I started reading a thread about why the human military should have won.
The guy who started the thread complained about how the Na'vi should not have been able to go through the bullet proof glass of military vehicles. The people arguing against him were saying that the arrows could go through bulletproof glass because of the force of gravity aiding them. That argument made me want to bash my head through a wall.
I hate when kids cuss. I can understand once they reach high school, but if they're younger than freshman it drives me nuts. And if they smoke, I just want to dump a bucket of water on their head.
People who take things too seriously -- like on HubPages. This is just a forum to express one's personal opinions. Yet, it seems swords are drawn at the slightest provocation. This is a good place for learning. But nobody's point of view on here will be changed regardless of how rational the opposing argument.
stupidity, not ignorance, but stupidity.
people who think they're better than others.
people who say "i love jesus" and haven't got a damned clue what they're talking about.
tattle-tales who can't handle things on their own.
farmville, mafia wars, hearts, hugs and drinks-on-me.
Mordots that vote for politicians because they are 'cute' or are a movie star or because of their race or their gender or their religion.
I don't mean people with disabilities... I mean the lazy, ignorant, screwed up wasted spaces that clearly dropped too much acid or escaped from reality and always seem to want to demonstrate how incredibly thick they are
No call-backs when promised.
Words not backed up by actions.
Rude customer service.
Being left 'hanging'.
Someone disappearing from your life for no apparant reason after reassuring.
double talking back-talk
Cheaters who drive to the of a line and try to cut in!
Gum cracking or popping drives me nuts, especially from a retail clerk.
When someone asks me a question and then argues with my answer. Why the EFF did you ask?!
repeating myself, when the dresser drawers get left open, when the shower curtain is not closed all the way.
When you go up to a pretty stranger during lunch, ask them nicely for some sex, and they slap you so hard that you have go back to work with a big red mark on your face
I'm peeved at commercials that ask one to buy gold at the highest price it has ever reached by telling you that they bought gold ten years ago and it's tripled in price.
What fool would buy gold at it's peak price?
I'm peeved by the legal, so-called "prescription drug industry" that claims to have a pill for everything...and I mean an asinine pill for every aspect of life. Oh, did you sneeze; here, take this pill... Absolutely, utterly sickening!
People who talk on the phone while in the bathroom... and then you can hear them flush.
When someone leaves bread crumbs on the counter or worse. After saying, 'can you please clean your bread crumbs off the counter', he wipes them off onto the floor. errr! lol
People who are too uptight over what other people believe.
When walking my dog, if she doesn't want to walk she sits and wont budge.
Being put on hold by an automated answering machine.
When I go to the store and forget to buy what I went there for in the first place.
Customers that will not stop talking on the phone while at the check out counter in my store.
Cashiers that will not bag purchases in any store.
My husbands nurse.
Kids that just saunter across the road with no concern for tyeing up traffic.
My cat when he bites my toes while I am sleeping.

There are people who HATE to see others succeed & improve their lives. These people have a crab in the barrel mentality. They feel that if they made bad choices & didn't succeed, others SHOULDN'T either. They seem to rationalize their poor lifestyle choices. ...

Hey hubbers,What's your issue that you want to get off your chest.No holds barred. No offense is to be taken from any statement.This forum is a venting area for whatever issues. The release of negative energy will be warmed to a comfortable natural lift of weight off your shoulder.If you think I'm...

Is there anyone that lives off of their Hubpages earnings exclusively?I was thinking about writing for Hubpages exclusively and I wanted to know if anyone can actually live off of their Hubpages earnings.
