"Remix". Whenever I hear a song that's a "remix" it sounds like some sucky blend of Rap and Disco. I don't think the secret is in the proportions. It's gonna suck no matter how you mix it.
Hoping I am not in the third one already . I still have a way to go ,,,
Well, as my old Granddad used to say, "Two wrongs don't make a right, but three rights make a left."
My newest one is that age old practice of saying "bless you" whenever someone sneezes. Maybe my allergies are just bad enough that I get tired of hearing it all day or maybe I'm just getting old and cranky but I don't need blessed just because pollen got in my nose.
I'll have to go with my Rap loving neighbors. That said, they have been paying dearly for their poor taste in music and even poorer sound system. They've been getting the message loud and clear.
I was getting gas a few weeks ago. Some white boy pulls up in his jacked up truck blasting rap music. I proceeded to turn on Hank Williams, Sr. just as loud as I could to give him some competition. He left and there was a black guy beside me getting gas as well. He looked at me, laughed, and said "you're playing Hank Williams, the good stuff!"
Now this one aggravates me to no end. People (asswipes) who pull into a parking space and whip the door open and smash their door into the car next to them. I find more hacks on both sides of my car more and more almost everyday.
My pet peeve has got to be idiots going slow in the overtaking/fast lane OR doing the speed limit and refusing to move out of the overtaking lane because they won't allow you to go past them by "speeding".
Honestly it really makes my blood boil!
Another thing that ticks me off is the overuse of the word EPIC.
It's seems everything these days is EPIC. Another EPIC video of something or another bla bla bla.
Or an EPIC find of something as trivial as a common ebay item, an EPIC stunt, an EPIC spew, and EPIC burnout bla bla bla......
The true meaning of the word has been totally lost.
The word scroe..If I see it in a thread title. I won't bother reading the thread most of the time.
Cheesy locally produced commercials, especially those that use Godawful jingles instead of any sort of a meaningful message. They look and sound like they are made with dads old camcorder, and some very well may have been! Add a few kids and the family dog that do not add anything to the content and if feels like we are watching home movies of their kids grade school talent contest. Those lousy commercials are usually from local used car dealers or tire shops. What a waste of their money and my time.
Having to pay expensive rent at age 61, on a SS Disability Income check, with little money left over.
Scroe or score?
So us Cardinal fans aren't the only with a dislike for Joe? His dad was the consummate sports broadcaster, and we were blessed to have Jack Buck calling Cardinal games for years for us in this area. I don't know what Joe's issues are, but he's boring.
(And their kids are usually uglier than a mud fence!)
Nice one. Noted it in my insult notebook.
On a more serious note, and at least several notches above a pet peeve, uncooperative drama-queens that must get some sort of twisted satisfaction out of peeing on everyone else’s Cheerios at every opportunity. And who made the rule that there has to be one in every situation? I’m sure that we all know people like that. That s#it just wears a person down after a while, doesn’t it?
What ever happened to earbuds? Earbuds were nice; they kept the music to the one person that wanted to hear it. Now most seem to skip those and just use the "speaker" in the phone.
The number of people that walk around the office with their own personal soundtrack following them everywhere they go astounds me. We aren't in their house, it is a place of business and I didn't go into their work area they came into mine. Beyond the choice of music there is the painfully bad sound quality blaring out of a tiny speaker in their pocket. There is absolutely nothing that would be pleasing to listen to on that.
I guess it boils down to the standard 'screw everyone else, I do what I want' attitude that permeates what passes for society anymore.
