Things That Annoy You!


Recommended Posts

I don't know if we had one of these threads but I feel like venting so here we go:


Things that annoy me:


People who show up with 75lb bags and get pissed when I tell them to load them themsevles.


People who think they are going to sit right behind me and talk loudly on their cell phone for the 182 mile ride from Providence to New York


People who get pissed that we arrived 15 mins late into New York on a Friday afternoon.


Co workers who have a skewed sense of what's important. Write up that a reading light is not working, but slow brakes are A-OK!


The company for cutting a schedule but still selling tickets for it, causing my schedule to leave 25 people behind Fri,Sat and Sun.


The company for governing the new eqiupment to 65mph for "fuel consevation". Give me back my 70-75mph please!


The moron that approved 6 street fairs in Manhatten for yesterday. Thanks for the extra hour of OT that I didn't want.


The Yankees for having 705pm games all this week.....I won't get home on time all week long!

I hate when people take tools out of the tool room and they don't put them back.


I hate when someone leans the 2x4 up that holds the barn doors closed...and then the bar falls on my head.


I hate when people leave the boom on the crane dead-center, making it impossible to get the pole on the wire.


...last but not least...I hate when trolley poles lift motors.

1. People ... Just not of any sort, the ones that just look plain stupid.


1a. People who sag their pants, girls included.

1b. People who think life is all about getting laid, gangs, violence, etc. I hate it.


2. People who run up to the bus / train expecting for the doors to be re-opened and then cursing out whomever for it.


3. People who do not move all the way, up the stairs to the dead back of the bus and the operator who give in to it and then skip stops because of it.


4. Parents who buy or generously accept those Spongebob bookbag leashes for their babies and then use it ... Why are you degrading your image?


5. Mothers (and it is always the black people I see) who curse at their children, hit them and stuff. That is annoying.


6. The kids of the neighborhood... My neighborhood, who never go to school, hang out on the corner, pants low... if not gone.


7. People who look at you and automatically assume "terrorist!"


8. Fakes.


9. Strangers who jump in front of my camera for a picture and then ask me to email it to them. How bout no!


10. People who just are all up in your relationship business with the number 1 question being asked, "You do her yet?"


11. Whoever is in charge of Apple and Microsoft.

Okay I'm exaggerating, but I am pissed off at the following diversity of annoyances:


1. loud-mouthed obnoxious smartass females in 8-10th grade

2. waiting a long time for the perfect photo shot and THAT'S when a person or car gets in the way

3. people who think an interest in transit is retarded

4. couples who make out in public

5. movies that make it look so easy to fall on love when in real life (in my case) it's nearly impossible

6. hypocrites (i'm guilty of that sometimes too)

7. idiots who crowd the front of the bus when there is room for an elephant in the rear

8. crying babies on the bus/train

9. fighting HS kids

10. parents cursing at their toddlers

11. people who eat HUGE fast-food open meals on the bus/train

12. jehovah's witnesses (no offense to the ones on this board if there are any)

13. my own SEPTA raps

14. people who like to make dirty jokes out of anything I do/say

15. people who turn my verbal mistakes into excuses for them to call me gay

16. Apple gadgets

17. girls who get hype way too fast way too much at way-too-little matters

18. people who never give solid straight answers to questions (I ask a yes-or-no question and I get anything BUT yes or no)

19. the doors closing announcements in the Broad Street Subway in :septa:

20. threats

Speaking of which, I saw an old photo of 1689 with a "this is a no-foaming zone" ad in the ad holder behind one of the cabs...that would be a nice gag for RT weekends next year.

I am going to throw this thread on the third rail, pick it up and throw it in front of an express bus on an empty LIE, throw it in front of a (J) train on the Willy B, then drop it in a partially full CNG tank and light it on fire.


-Teenagers that take the senior/disabled seats and don't move for them if a person who is such gets on, or teenage moms that let their kids do anything

-teenagers that blare crappy music from this decade (especially from the last 4 years) through their headphones

-anyone that thinks they're Phil or Graham Hill and drives a 4,000 lb. sedan like it's a racecar, cutting people (especially buses) off

-People that talk loudly in buses in different f**king languages

-girls doing stupid shit (texting while driving, etc.)

-couples online or IRL having a moment, or having any indication that they are related on their person (clan tags, similar names, PDAs)

-crying babies

-and their deaf ass f**king parents that don't silence them, especially on buses... OR IN f**kING CHURCH

-Anyone that is still attached to post-2005 Nintendo

-Religious preachers on the bus that hold people up with their annoucements of the end times before getting off

-spoiled ass bitches/douchebags in brand new BMWs, Infinitis, or Mercs. Porsches do not apply because 70% of that marque's drivers are in their midlife crises.

-the wealthy



-political correctness

Couple more things:


*Fat people who walk up to McDonalds, saying "I would like large fries, large soda, 2 angus third pounders, both deluxe and 20 mcnuggets.


*Don Mattingly

*Fat people who take up 2 seats on the train


people that think PCs are the best gaming platforms


Well they are :P. You could modify anything you want, theres endless possibilities with how much RAM and the power of your CPU, and theres more things to do. You try to do that on a PS3 all your gonna do is brick it. At least you can't brick PCs. Plus you dont need any of that Xbox live crap

Stole what I was going to say :(


To add onto that


People/Foamers who remove people / stop being friends with people just because of a stupid subway line they are not against.


People who takes the transitfanning hobby to a personal level.


People who always wants to know your business, friends are fine but people that I dont know/barely know, you can step away or get stomped on.


Certain people who tend to be Know-It-Alls


People who start untrue/fake gossip about other people.








So much more.
