    What grinds my gears is sitting in my study hall writing this at school and not being able to go home and get on with my life.

    What grinds my gears is people CONTINUOUSLY having their minds in the goddamned gutter... You're ok, TB. At least you don't/didn't go to a school where guys had balls for brains (and girls with ovaries for brains). One girl, and myself were the only male and female student who weren't always horny, and only thought with their genitals.

    But, also, I read that wrong as well, TB. I was just at the gym; only a few things running through my mind... ;)

    Well... A few things.

    Girls asking me out even though they know I'm in a relationship. And, while single, not a single :censored: chance to go out with a female being for ages.

    Fat people that seem to think they're the most sexy thing on earth, both male and (especially) female. Seriously, if you're weighing in at 190lbs, don't try to wear a skin tight mini skirt, damn it!

    Somewhat related to the previous point: Fat/ugly people with way to much confidence.

    Being bored at work (especially considering that it's an apprenticeship).

    Gas prices in Germany: 5,70€ a gallon. That's roughly 7,50$, by the way.

    Trains being late for no good reason.

    A 30 miles trip taking three hours, because the train connection sucks so bad.

    Having to do said trip to get home from my girlfriends place. Getting their takes less than an hour, by the way. Stupid stuff, isn't it?

    And, something serious: Cancer. Multiple family members having cancer, to be precise.

    BAG-SMASH!

    Oh, so funny when you see that happen to someone else. Not so when you're the victim. Or happen to be in a queue waiting for that to clear.

    Grinds my gears? When a speedy car wants to go faster. But I cannot go faster than the speed limit. So the speedy car just sticks like a limpet on my tail. Well, hello insurance claim if I ever have to do an emergency stop....

    Another crap related annoyance. What really grinds my gears? When you hold in a crap so big that you can't hold it in any more than 10-15min but the toilet is already occupied by some toilet troll who you think is doing this purposely. Once the troll has cleared you bolt off as if the crap is NOS and slam your arse on the seat so hard that the ripple can be felt going up your neck and what happens?? Nothing comes out.. Seriously?

    I've seen a saying like that... "Skinny girls think their they're chubby, chubby girls think they're fat, fat girls think they're obese, and obese girls think they're supermodels" :irked:



    The friggin' Rugby World Cup is starting in September. And Auckland Transport sucks :censored:! On top of that, the prices are flying up :grumpy:



    Basically any illness that happens to someone who you'd least expect it to happen to.




    They're the same thing :dopey:

    You've hit the nail on the head there.
    The more beautiful the girl, the uglier she seems to think she is. Sadly, the uglier the girl, the more beautiful she seems to think she is, as well. :ouch:

    Furthermore:
    Eight o'clock in the morning, you're craving for a :censored: mug of coffee and some bloke broke the coffee dispenser.

    Being addicted to caffeine and not being able to think straight without at least one mug of coffee in the morning.

    Going to the bathroom to dump a big one, when it's only a fart. A nasty one, though.

    My second favourite TV show (Scrubs) only being on air while I'm at work.

    MY favourite TV show (How I Met Your Mother) only being on air while I'm at work. Or so late in the evening, that I'll be depriving myself of sleep when watching it. Which, incidently, happened yesterday, so my craving for coffee is even stronger than usual.

    My landlord increasing the rent yet again.

    Telling my girlfriend I'd get us a bottle of champagne for the weekend without checking the prices first. Dang, that stuff's even more expensive than I thought :indiff:

    Having to spend money on clothes I don't like because I need them for work.

    Having old people in front of you while getting your groceries. Seriously, getting your stuff together takes ages when someone, who's, like, totally blind, tries to count the pennies left in their wallet, when their supposed to just hand their cash over.

    I also hate it when my cat claws at me to get into my lap (sorry, just had to type that up :p)
    Mainly, I hate it when my school finds more ways to make us pay money for them. 8 years ago (when I wasn't there), it was a completely new uniform. Three years ago, it was a new hat. Two years ago, it was new P.E. gear. Last year, it was a new school jacket. And this year, it's ties for the juniors, and blazers for the seniors. And $48 :censored: dollers for a new House Shirt that I will hardly use in my lifetime :mad:

    What grinds my gears part 2....

    Waking up early.

    Not having cigarettes to smoke as soon as I wake up.

    Technology in general. Hating it but knowing I can't live a normal life without it.

    People with money but no class who by a Porshe Cayenne.

    The service at Mcdonalds or any other fast food place.

    People who smell but still don't bother to wash.

    56.com. Drives me insane when I get 20mins from the end of a movie and it stops streaming, every time.

    People who complain that I'm a complainer. How ironic.

    Hippies.

    Cold tea.

    Search engines like Google which open each page in a new window.

    Non-drinkers, except alcoholics.

    People who claim to have spiritual powers.

    People who try to be my friend on Facebook and don't know me.

    FACEBOOK!

    Rant part 2, over.

    What grinds my gears is seeing 15yr old chicks that look like they're 22!! I'm not meaning the little skanks that dress like that, I'm meaning the ones that developed really early and have breasts that would rival Kim Kardashian's and if we didn't know their age, would happily give them some "attention", some alcohol......you know where I'm going with this people. ;)

    I know. It's always kinda... Off-putting. You're flirting with a chick and all, and when you're asking her about her age, she's like "I'm 14!" and you're like "Damn, no way!" because you could've sworn she was at least 18.

    I wonder whether girls have become this way just recently or whether I've missed that kind of girls when I was in school. If I missed them... How the hell did I do that?!
    Seriously... Half the clubs and pubs and whatnot have turned into a jailbait galore.

    I'm guilty of that, because I've only been driving for half a month.

    At least we go the speed limit!

    Why this channel exists, I don't want to know/don't need to know/don't give a flying golden crap.

    --EDIT--

    [rant]This happened to me yesterday at the carnival at the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo... I was talking to a group of girls who were 1) my height, 2) REALLY well-endowed, and 3) flirting with me. while I am a bit on the chunky side, (totally not being narcisistic) I do look ok for my weight. I was chatting up a storm with them, but when they asked how old I was, I said 18, and they just FROZE. They could've made Kim Kardashian look uglier than Susan Boyle, and yet, their ages ranged from 11-15. HOW DOES AN 11-YEAR OLD LOOK LIKE A MODEL?! damn jailbait. get breast reduction surgery so we don't get confused. also, drink coffee to stunt your height, PLEEEEASE.

    I officially hate my own state.[/rant]

    Yeah, I'm 15. There was a girl I was going to ask out, but I asked what her age was, and she was 11. I was like like 'son of a :censored:.' That grinds my gears as well.

    It could be worse you could have taken a girl to bed and found she was a man.
