Words, Phrases and Other Stuff that Annoys Me

Recommended Posts


Discussions about cards with "Chip & PIN" or "Chip & Signature" technology, which do not include a prominent statement about how horribly inconvenient they are to use compared to a card with a magnetic strip, a statement that the only real benefits are to the issuer, the payment network and/or the merchant, and a statement that if you don't travel internationally you don't need one.

 

Optionally, for the last item, it's also ok to suggest having a Chip & ____ card in the sock drawer, to be used for infrequent visits to other countries.

After giving a concise, accurate, and direct answer to a (usually ridiculous) question, hearing "So, what I'm hearing from you is..." followed by a completely inaccurate summary of whatever the stated answer was, often changed to represent whatever unrealistic, fantasy-land answer was actually desired by the person who wasted my time with the ridiculous inquiry in the first place.

  • irregardless
Oh, I REALLY can't stand that one.

 

 

 

  • interpretate
Oh wow...that's a fairly new one on me. How ridiculous is that? Edited by GetWisdom

Tourists in Hawaii who wear Hawaiian shirts.

 

Hint: You don't look like a local.

 

Also, further demerits if you are a couple and your Hawaiian shirts are identical.

 

Capital punishment is in order if you're doing this in any of the photos:

I've had family in Hawaii for years. Mostly true about the Hawaiian shirts but the local women often wear a muumuu, usually in the more muted prints. I hate them however!

Two that drive me nuts, usually in spoken form:

 

 

You ASK a question, you don't AXE one...

 

When you are giving more detail you are being SPECIFIC. The PACIFIC is an ocean.

 

 

Also:

 

Bumper stickers...and especially those stupid window stickers showing how many kids you have. I don't care that you're late night Budweiser fueled romps produced 3 future Walmart cashiers...

OMG, I know. Also, a new generation of d-bags are putting "Baby on Board" signs in the windows of their cars.

The Kardashians - always feel like throwing up when I hear about them...

Getting rid of my TV solved that problem... and several others.

Web sites that want me to download their %$@^$%^@ app, especially the ones that are relentless about it.

 

Web sites that will not let me view the full site on a tablet (or phone, if desired).

Agree with these 100%. Use my phone a lot during the day on websites. Always choose full site. A few of them force mobile/tablet...then make you go through a tweaks to make it work.

 

I don't like tapatalk, either :ph34r:
