Petty irritants in life that get you way more furious than is justified?

Ads being WAAAAAAY louder than the programme they're ruining. There's a podcast I like called "Ridiculous History", but it has 2x ad breaks in a 40 minute podcast. Set the volume so you can listen to it at work without being too obnoxious, and the ads are WAY too loud. Set the volume so the ads don't dominate the room when they come on, and you can't hear the fucking podcast. Absolute bullshit. :bart

:hat

When HBO (RIP) or Showtime or Sky or ESPN or BoxNation switch to an advertisement between rounds, thus not allowing you to hear what the corner are telling the fighter.

If it's PPV I'm even more fucked off as I'm paying for this fight on top of my regular subscriptions.

The fact that books don't come in standardised sizes so my bookshelves end up looking like a schizophrenic mess.
Interesting way of looking at things (as I glance the rows and rows of books to my left).

Your're right about unwed mothers, but I cut widows much slack for this though. One of my best friends was widowed at 32 with three young children when her husband developed terminal colon cancer at 38. She's been carrying her family on her back ever since. She didn't bargain for this when she got married, then first became a mother at 22. She has no family support, and will now work until she dies for the next generation, when all she wanted was to be a full time mom.

After her husband died, her little girl developed and died of cystic fibrosis before she was even old enough for kindergarten. Her oldest son has been dying of polyarteritis nodosa since he was a teenager. She's going to lose yet another child. She angrily tells me, "I NEVER shoulda gotten married, NEVER shoulda had children!," but this is after the fact, and I remind her, "But Honey, there's no way you could have known!" She a terrific mother in a tragic situation. The birth rate would be ZERO if every wife was afraid of what marriage blindsided her with. She's allowed to complain ALL she wants.

Another friend of mine is a divorcee with two young boys whose asshole ex husband turned into an abusive alcoholic after his mother died. Again, I cut her full slack to complain all she wants. Single parenting is NOT what she signed on for when she got married. (Divorce came after he drunkenly assaulted a police officer when a concerned neighbor called the cops over his late night screaming at her, then the fucking shysters and damned courts screwed her in the divorce proceedings. Her right to complain about being a single mother is absolute and inviolate to me.

These two female friends of mine have never met, but are distantly related cousins whose ancestors were soldiers with William the Conqueror whose descendants later came over on the Mayflower. Just being of blue blooded heritage doesn't mean they were born affluent themselves though. Economically alone, they struggle through life.

Fuck all regulations and expenses which screw these formerly maried single mothers. They did it the right way, and got punished severely for it.

Have you shagged either of these slags yet?

The way New Years Eve has turned into November the 5th, twats nearby setting fireworks off since 7.
They started about 10 here Ant.

There should be laws on what days fireworks can be set off on, and at what times. Trouble is it'd be relatively unpoliceable.

The dog's been on edge all night
Mate, before I lost my old girl (Lillie, my old dog) she used to be the same. She used to shake like a leaf from about 5pm on Bonfire night/New Year's Eve. Dogs and fireworks just don't go.

From @Nigelbro 's post.

For me, there are many, but one thing I fucking HATE is watching ads during movies or PPVs. Motherfuckers, when I go to the movies I have paid for my ticket. Don't fucking tell me the movie starts at 7:30,and then give me half an hour of 3 stupid ads then a trailer then 3 more stupid ads then another trailer.

It's even worse with PPVs. Spend $50 on a fight card, then halfway through you have to sit and watch a fucking trailer for some stupid movie that you have absolutely zero interest in. Fuuuuuck, that annoys me.

I also get very upset when I walk into a supermarket and see a sign saying "Strawberry Punnet's $3 each." Makes me assume that the entire store is operated by total morons.

What are some tiny, trivial things that piss you off to an extent that is not really justified?

:hat
Shove it, cunt.

People who pay £3 for a cup of coffee in places like Costa or whatever those other fucking places are called.
Also, people who loiter in said places to cause a disturbance, resulting in legal action that's deemed RACIST, resulting in Starcucks giving two freeloaders seven figure paydays.

Folk ho leave their trolly in the middle of the aisle at the supermarket. I usually give a good hard shove right down the remainder of the aisle of boot it away into the person who left it or drop a few things into it. Some folk get road rage. I get supermarket rage.

Sometimes by the time I've got to the check out and it is self service only and the self service is working like an amputee child trying to make my new Nikes I just leave everything there and walk off like the bloke in Falling Down. Done that to the wife a few times which has been the closest we've ever come to ending it between us.
