The worst thing was that he though he was a computer expert and he thought he could make viruses ( with one of 10 gazilion stupid apps ). Oh man my veins were filled with anger! So i guess you could say, dumbasses annoy me.
Evidently he still is using an Intel 286 and no RAM.
His floppy drive is defective. An upgrade would be useless.
Brain transplant maybe.

What annoyed me with my "car shop" were positions on the bill that they charge for without doing anything. Granted it's only a few bucks but generally a sign for bad business. Makes you wonder where else you've been ripped off.

Example: I made sure I filled the Window washer yet they tried to charge me for washer fluid.
or instead of changing the (marked) oil filter they just wiped it clean.
Needless to say they've never seen me again.

Hah what makes me laugh well not laugh is they do what you say yet put a nice Castrol paper mat in the footwell and give you a car wash voucher.

Common sense will never prevail anymore

Every week we stand in line waiting to put our food shopping through the Marks & Spencer checkouts.

Every week the checkout staff thank us for waiting.

Which part of "we ain't got a flaming choice except wait" don't they understand? Grrrrrrrrrrrr.

Yapping Dogs

I rather like dogs...except the kind that tends to yap a lot. You know the kind...mostly those little lap dogs, that unfortunately my apt. complex permits. Even they aren't too bad outdoors, but there is one female tenant at the far end of the hall, that takes her mutt out several times a day, and every time, the dog yips all the way down the hall, then all the way back up a few minutes later, apparently after the dogs has done his thing along the fence.

As annoying as it is to me, it bothers another neighbor across the hall even more, because a couple of weeks ago, after she and her dog made a return trip, he came into the hallway, and yelled at the top of his lungs, that he would kill the mutt, if she didn't keep him quiet.

That had a little effect, for about a week, because you could hear her trying to control the dog on their daily pilgrimages. But soon, it returned to the old routine. A few days ago, that irate neighbor didn't bother with complaining, he simply yelled AAARG! as loud as he could, before slamming the door loud enough to wake the dead.

Speaking of the dead, maybe that is what he is barking at...the ghosts walking the hallway (they say that dogs sees those things). Though I know that animals do have spirits, I'm guessing that they all have their own heavens, because I've never heard of an animal ghost haunting anyone here on Earth. Maybe if God had chosen to combine the animal and human spirit dimensions, there wouldn't be so many restless souls scaring people here.

On the downside, if there weren't any restless spirits, we would loose our elevator operator, and there would be fewer eerie noises in the attic to give us something to muse about.

Given all of that, I'd vote to ban all pets that bark, and if tenants insisted on having dogs, they would have to get themselves Basenjis.

One thing that gets up my nose too are those moving walkways or escalators in shopping centres where I always seem to get behind people who just stand there and go all the way up and then race off when they reach the top.

Ok if they are old but I get the fat couples and gas bagging (sorry geeklettes) women who are oblivious to what is going on around them. who are holding hands and the irritate the insides out of me. Just bone lazy.

Always remember that when you are cursing the idiot driver in front of you, the one behind you may be doing exactly the same.

Kill the HP welcome/poppup screen. It annoys me.
When I boot my computer, (a HP) , screen pops up, (picture of a hand and HP.) I don't want that. It annoys me. It is not necessary. I want to kill it. I don't want to hear how difficult it is, to remove. Merely, I want it not. mmm, someone must know how to get rid of it.
