    You know what really grinds my gears as of late?

    Me not listening to myself. I've been trying to render videos when I sleep, that way I can wake up to a finished video...and instead I'm now rendering the video and I can't do anything fun. =(

    When my friend asks if I'll be up between 2:30AM and 4AM. Dude...that's a decent sized window during the time where I am getting very damned tired. Know what tends to happen? It hits 3AM or so and I fall asleep. I'll wake up to find he called 30 minutes after I fell asleep.

    SHORTEN THE WINDOW! I hate it.

    My friend posting facebook shit that is FALSE. Yes, I look things up every now and then. Like this one he posted:

    "It would seem that Liberals and Atheists are giving A&E problems because of the Duck Dynasty family dinner prayer. They want that part taken off the air. My understanding is A&E went to Phil and ask if they would not do that again. Phil Told them if we can't pray to God on the show, we will not do the show.
    ~ Judy"

    Looking it up...this is a fucking rumor.

    http://www.snopes.com/politics/religion/duckdynasty.asp

    He likes to post things constantly without checking on ANYTHING which pisses me off. No one on facebook checks on anything. This was one I had to check because I can't imagine anyone actually sending in a complain about people on a SHOW praying. That's fucking beyond stupid.

    Edit: Just found another person posting something wrong too. I've seen this before. A repost of a picture of someone who is "missing". oh hey, a quick google search shows me that she was found early January of 2013, dead. She isn't missing anymore. Seriously...GOOGLE people. It's our best tool.

    Try having a father and aunt that get into post wars over politics, that makes it 10x better.

    When I am called an "angry kid". First off, me saying "fuck" or "fucking" does not make me angry. I don't know why people assume that. Second, assuming I'm a fucking kid is beyond annoying itself. But yeah, when you die to a small camp...then die to the enemy a minute later...and then let ME die because you were typing something...I'm slightly annoyed and getting close to mad.

    Thankfully, when it comes to smite, I don't get pissed off. I just stop caring and I'll go and farm.

    My friend (who lives in Texas) keeps sending me invites to see his band live. I live in Michigan. Yeah, go ahead, check how far that is. I've turned down his invites repeatedly. I mean, he knows I don't live anywhere close to him.

    When someone is actually so busy that they can't text me back, but instead of saying "Hey, I'm busy so I can't text back", they reply every 2-3 hours. At least then I don't feel like I'm being ignored. >_<

    Where I work, everyone thinks that they're the hardest worker. Nobody else works as hard as them, and everyone is inferior. That's not what grinds my gears the most though...I realized yesterday that I've been falling into that mindset as well. Fuck it's hard to change your thought process once it's latched onto something.

    I should work there. I'll know for a fact that I don't work that hard. =P

    That brings up the question, what do you do that has everyone thinking that?

    I work in a family owned, small town grocery store with a load of narcissistic employees and a crazy fucking owner.

    And it gets really annoying when the cashiers even think they work the hardest...

    The fact that I was given Borderlands 2 as a gift (4 pack ftw) and we've played TWICE since then. First time we played, we rushed through the first area and when we got to the boss, my friend's brother said this is where he is done because he has work. Fair enough.

    Second time is what pissed me off. Took a couple days before we even played (4 days since I got the game) and we played for maybe 1 1/2 hours before they took a "small break". Apparently someone brought cake or something. I decided to wait ingame because starting the game up takes too long.

    40 minutes later, my friend tells me "Their guest is still there, they probably won't be back on". FORTY FUCKING MINUTES I waited. Thanks for wasting my time.

    Looking at Steam, I last played Monday. My friend told me it took them 2 months to complete the first game because of how little they were on. I'm thankful he let me have the game to play with them, especially since I can run the game sooo smooth, but for fuck sake I want to play.
