DeLarge Posted July 26, 2009 Share Posted July 26, 2009 [SIZE=1]We all try to be positive, uplifting people in life. We attempt to get through the days, brightening up those around us with our breezy charm and self-assured happiness. Or I do, at least. However, everyone has those things in life which irritate you to the point of violence. Whether it is bad drivers, or overly loud people in the cinema, we all make mountains out of molehills at certain points in our lives. This thread is the place to vent these petty little peeves, meaning you don't have to resort to murder in your everyday life. We're not looking for big things, so please don't say "world hunger and poverty annoys me," we're looking for tiny little things that niggle at you until you can't hold it in any more. For instance, I can't stand people doing other things in the room when I'm watching TV. My dad knows how much this irritates me, and yet he still insists on wandering around, folding washing and ironing while I'm trying to relax, constantly darting in front of the TV, thus interrupting my valuable free time. I also get intensely angry when people overtake me while driving. Mostly just on normal roads, which is reasonable, but also on the motorway, when it is actually socially acceptable to overtake other cars. I don't know what it is, it just makes me livid. The final, and possibly the most petty thing, is use of language. Not in general, just one very specific thing that some people do, and that is overuse of the words "literally" and "random" out of context. If anyone ever said the sentence "It would literally be so random" near me, then they shouldn't be surprised when my foot meets their face. I don't know if it's the use of language, or the kind of people who are typically guilty of this unbelievable murder of the English language. Well, I'm going to finish up before I get angry and punch through the computer screen. Let's hear how you guys make mountains out of molehills!
