    You know what really grins my gears?

    When people on TeamSpeak don't have the basic conversational decency to not talk over other people. ESPECIALLY when they interrupt someone to input some completely inane bullshit that has nothing to do with anything that's going on.

    It's also bullshit when people will come into a channel where people are carrying on a conversation just to ask one person a question over everyone else. Learn/Use the goddamned whisper feature, wait your goddamned turn, or just use a private text chat.

    Alternatively, if we leave a channel to start a game, don't follow us and start a tucking conversation when we are trying to communicate champion positions. And if you follow, and we finish a game, don't give us shit for telling you to shut the hell up when we start another game. We left so that we could communicate, we don't need to leave again if you were the asshole that followed us to the other channel.

    Know what slightly taps my privates just enough so that they hurt but not enough that I can punch them?

    Close family members that talk all cryptically like they believe you may or may not be a secret double agent for their most powerful enemies and refuse to just spit it out and tell you the root of their problems.

    Being given a 5 minute window in which to call in sick otherwise you get more points. And then when you call, they don't answer the fucking phone. Pricks.

    When a person calls into my work asking for information on another persons account and gets upset when they find that the other person hasn't authorized them to access the account and they still have the gall to get upset and call me useless after I have explained to them that I would be breaking the law by going ahead with their request, even for things as simple as payment history.

    That's a lot of personal information about another person, were the phone company, while falling just short of the government and google, we have more of your personal information than most other folks. Theirs a reason were dicks about making sure you are who you are... It's called the privacy act (at least that's what it's called in Canada)

    You know what nibbles on my nuggets?

    when I buy a game from Game stop and it doesn't work. Then I go over there and return the shit and find out that was the "last copy". Game stop be bullshitting

    They'd have to have another copy in the back. It'd be unlike a big gaming store to run out like that. I know Wal-Mart had like, over 100 boxes surplus of Black Ops 2 in the back when it came out, and even when they sold "Their Last Copy".

    I'm talking about Game stop. Like the ones in the mall or in a strip-mall it's not the size of a super wal-mart. But either way i think they have more in the back of the game I got from their store; it would be different if I got it online.

    They probably did have more in the back. Those blasted workers are too lazy. You always have to ask about if anything's in the back.

    When people drive ONE mile under the speed limit. I'm talking about you bastards who go 59 when everyone normally goes 60. Gaaaaaaaah! I set my cruise to 60, so it pisses me off knowing I eventually gotta slow down.

    You know what really grinds my gears? This fucking bullshit. "The Back" is not some mystical dimension where copies of CoD are generated at will. There are a FINITE amount of copies of a fucking game, and sometimes a place runs the fuck out. And if they check the back, and they just so happen to find something that someone's looking for, it only increases the perception of "oh, well, then I guess some lazy piece of shit wasn't doing their job." There's only so much storage space on a wall available.

    It also irritates me how people are like "man, fuck those assholes wanting to make me preorder something." Well, guess the fuck what? Preorders are how the fucking publisher knows how many copies of a game to send to each retailer, hence why EVERY retailer does preorders now. So, if X copies are preordered, then (X * 1.2) copies are sent to each retailer, where they are then divided up by preorder demand. If I had a dollar for every time someone came in asking for a game that fucking NO ONE preordered, and then got pissed off when we didn't have it, I'd be wealthy as fuck.

    tl;dr: stores run out of things sometimes, deal with it.

    Know what really segfaults my server?

    Group projects with assigned partners, and then people promising to do stuff and not delivering.
    If you promise/say you're gonna do something, DO IT.
    Or at least have the common decency to tell anyone involved in said project you can't with plenty of time to spare.
    Thanks for making everyone else scramble during an already hellish finals week and getting worse grades than they deserved, ya bitch.

    Or just group projects with people whose work habits you don't know/can't trust in general.

    I understand things run out; it doesn't mean I don't get annoyed when I return a game that I bought that didn't work, get half the money, and find out that I can't buy another copy.

    Want to know what grinds my gears? People who buy games from GameStop then complain when they get fucked over on returns... They aren't a new company and this isn't the first time this shit has happened. Its their company policy and to them it is all about the bottom line. Buy a game online or from some other retailer that won't fuck you over on returns

    Grinds my gears? Well, when I want to go home early for break and I find that I have that one class with that one quiz that just happens to be on the Monday before break and its importance is such that my grade will fluctuate from an A to a B if i do not take it. Not exactly earth shattering but damn it I could have been home 4 days ago :banghead

    You know what really grinds my gears?
    When someone posts a ban contest/request, and a ton of other users post in the goddamned thread.
    Are you the one being banned? Are you the banning admin? Are you staff?

    If you answered "no" to any/all of these, DON'T POST! your input is not necessary, NOR does it help your friend's case.

    When you get a big jar of peanut butter and it's almost empty and you have to reach really far down into it in order to get any peanut butter and even though you're using a knife it's still pretty much impossible to get the peanut butter at the bottom of the jar without taking your hand out covered in peanut butter which sucks because what are gonna do, lick it off?
    That grinds my gears.

    Y'know what really grinds my gears?
    When I'm ringing up a customer, and I ask for their discount card, but instead of giving me either the card or their phone number, they argue with me bout a goddamned sale price hat didn't come off because I haven't yet gotten their discount card...

    When your friends complain about a final that they have not prepared for adequately; also blame the teacher for teaching "too much" and them not learning enough, whatever the fuck that means.
