Default What incomprehensibly ‘irks’ you?

So, I’ve asked what ‘weirds you out,’ and received some terrific replies but this is a wholly different question.

I’m asking what, incomprehensibly, ‘irks’ you? What annoys you, gets under your skin, but there is no reasonable explanation as to why you should be so damned irritated?

I’ll go first.

I feel a jolt of anger when I read ‘Sad!’ in a paragraph or on it’s own. I know that sad can mean ‘bad’ but when the word is used by those of notorious improbity, I feel anger/ill. No, when it’s used by anyone who believes that the word inspires a kind of pitiful badness.

It really irks me. But I needn’t think it through, as above. That’s what makes it so very incomprehensible!

We got fall, Halloween and thanksgiving things at work today. I get that it’s some sort of marketing strategy, but it irks me. It’s way too early for Halloween and Thanksgiving. I’ll give them fall.

When people drag their feet on the ground while walking instead of picking them up.

People who chew gum like cows.

That’s wrong. Morally wrong, all sorts of wrong.

Just wrong.

I have never understood why people — okay, adults — chew gum?

I chewed bubblegum, on occasion, as a kid, but haven’t chewed any sort of gum since a pre-teen.

I accused my wife of loping like a lumberjack because, um, because she did when younger. She was a long-skirted, barefoot, hippie-chick with a long mane of glistening blonde hair. She was the most beautiful girl that I’ve ever known. The most interesting girl that I’ve ever known. By far, the brightest.

A loper certainly doesn’t drag their feet!

People who put not an ounce of thought into being properly prepared. Like the job fair I went to recently. There were people who brought their kids and young adults who brought their parents and people wearing attire more appropriate for a day at the beach, a night on the town, or an evening standing on a street corner. I just can't figure this stuff out. Why?! How easy would it have been think, "How shall I make a first impression?" Apparently the thing to do must be to drag mommy and daddy into the screening interview with you. really.

Which segways into the very topic of helicopter parenting. There is no excuse for a parent of a 25 year old to call me and tell me it is unfair their adult child be forced to wash dishes and clean bathrooms. We ALL have to do it. It is part of the job. Let them live their life. There is no excuse for this. Waa waa waa. Grow up.

I hate it when drivers ride the brake. How in the world do you know a sudden stop might be ahead (especially if you drive a small car and can't see over them)?

The current state of zombification of obsessive phone use and the people who "can't live" without their phone, people who talk on the phone in line, people who browse their phones at a sit-down restaurant, kids who smash their phones to get a new one, people (including a friend or two of mine) who has to constantly take pictures on their phone and constantly talk on the phone, having to constantly listen to people's conversation on the phone, constant ringing and dinging of phones wherever you go, there's not a single place you can go without someone being on their phones and it drives me up the wall! Read a BOOK and TALK TO SOMEONE FACE TO FACE IF YOU KNOW HOW TO DO THAT and LEARN HOW TO FUNCTION IN THE REAL WORLD!
