    The vuvuzela…FUCK the vuvuzela.
    I tried to watch a little USA soccer on Saturday (don’t know shit about soccer but figure I’d be open minded.)
    Couldn’t stand the sound of it, it was unbearable. Like a swarm of angry bees inside my brain.
    What a turn off, especially for someone new to the sport who was being openminded about checking it out. Fuck that shit.

    ugh. kinda like airhorns at MotoGP. don’t know why people think making some irrelevant, obnoxiously arbitrary noise somehow adds to the experience.

    Does this include people who scream, “woo?”

    Although, when people around you are screaming, “woo,” it makes you seem much smarter by comparison.

    “woo” isn’t so bad, it’s when you need mechanical assistance to amplify your “woo” to “WOOOOOOOO!!!!! that it gets annoying. and just comes out sounding like “heyeverybodylookatMEEEEEEE!!!!!”.

    i’m a grumpy old man these days though, so i suppose i should expect nothing different. /curmudgeon]

    People still insisting that microwave ovens cook from the inside out. This myth has somehow been propagated for 30 years.

    When “roof” is pronounced “ruf.”

    ex: “looks ok, but needs a new ruf.”

    AHHH!!!!

    Try avoiding Frisco when your last name is Francisco. It’s the zombie nickname from hell. ;)

    that’s an accent “problem.” i say “ruf”. not sure why that would annoy people though.

    when someone uses “Like” in a sentence, like, 10 times! a coworker did this today and it was all i could do to keep from ripping her lips off.

    When people misspell my name. C-L-A-R-E, NOT Claire/Clair/etc.

    That baby seems to have the most unnervingly adult expressions.

    Not a peeve at all, just an observation.
