I usually want to say... and what do you want me to do about it?

or people that think what you're doing is " boring", then when you ask them what they are doing they say " oh, nothing much."

also people that insist on being late or lazy, with no real/ valid excuse

and people that want the world given to them on a silver platter
This, too!!!!

Person: "Hi, I'm bored."
Me: *says absolutely nothing back*

AKA my life in retail. I have many, many people think I am their personal shopper, where they have a big list and need ME to find every item for them with absolutely no effort on their part...or...they'll ask where an item is, I'll tell them, then they'll come back to ask for the next item...five times!

Sometimes I'll try to give them hints like, "Hm, give me a moment to take a look at the giant SIGNS to see where you're item will be" and yet somehow they're annoyed with that, most likely because they knew they could have done that themselves.

As a sister whose brother is in the Marines, I'd love to just...
"Where can I find eye drops?"
"Letter to Garcia."

I'll second or third to the gum chewing. It's worse when their mouth is open and they're *smack* *smack* *smack* ARGH! It's definitely like watching a grazing cow.

The inevitable fate of the gum chewer:

Yes to the gum smacking!

Here's another few: people who drag their teeth across their forks and people who hold their forks backwards. Actually, any poor eating habit pretty much irks me. Nothing like sitting across from someone who seems to have learnt to eat in a stable. Knives AND forks people.

spoilers.

don't get me wrong, spoilers can be a lifesaver if I'm watching something a bit dark and I'm worried about possible triggers

but also people going around saying...

oh you know in this movie or this book the main character is the hero, or such and such happens to this character... shhut up and let me read/ watch it

pissed me off when someone decided it would be a good idea to talk about harry potter book 7 when I'd not even read it

I've read it now, but the point being.. I know the ending even before I got to the end.
