    What irritates you to no end.  Here is your opportunity to vent your frustrations/pet peeves!

    Do people do things that work your nerves? 

    My top irritation. When people feel a need to "urbanize" their speech around you. There you are communicating intelligently and someone is speaking to you ghetto, low-classed, thinking that's "cool."  You want to look like at that person and shake your head. That is not cool. It does not show "you're down" but it shows that you are incapable of viewing people as a unique individual and not a mirror of your misconceptions/stereotypes about people of color.   
    I can do nothing more than look at the person and think....Jack *ss!

    What bothers you?

    When individuals heatedly argue over religion and politics.  I was at a dinner party recently, and  voices grew louder and more heated as the discussion progressed.  I wanted to head for the door.

      Amen, LOL.  Religion and politics-the two topics that are most forbidden that allow the participants to become hostile, overbearing, and creates harsh feelings and assumptions about others. Way to keep conversation light at the dinner table.

    When couples have more children than they can take off financially, emotionally & psychologically.  Don't they realize by their selfish act that they are consigning their children to a childhood & youth of utter & total deprivation. Isn't it ironic that these "parents" state that their children are a gift; however these children are treated worse than rags-they have the worst quality of food, clothing, medical/dental care etc.  If these "parents" consider their children to be gifts, they will have the amount of children that they can give comfortable lives to with the best of food, clothing, medical/dental care & the best of opportunities.  However parents who have large families really don't care about their children's socioeconomic, emotional & psychological welfare at all; all they want is to have THAT family regardless of what irreparable damage to the family dynamic.  When I see & read of people who just instinctively have children w/o thinking, planning, & forethought of the children's future, I start to hiss, spitting venom!
