It drives me completely insane when people do the habit I call "semantic sprinkling", i.e., when people bury their sentences in enormous mounds of empty words (usually "like" and an uncreative selection of swear words) that add absolutely nothing to the meaning and prevent me from parsing or understanding anything they say.
Unfortunately, I have to deal with that every day here... >:(

Aside from things like animal abuse, I have a few specific ones.

Automotive lights. Use them properly. Adjust your headlights so they don't blind oncoming traffic, turn signals, etc. PLEASE, it's dangerous, inconsiderate, and illegal. Most people seem to not even know that headlights need to / can be adjusted. Also people who put HID lights in incandescent light housings, that is the worst of all.

People who ALWAYS make me late when I am helping them out. An example is I helped a friend out moving to a new apartment. He made me wait outside his place with the trailer for half hour when he had told me the day before I needed to be there on time. I had also called him as I left.

There are a few more, but those are the big ones. Mainly they bother me because I need to deal with them on a daily basis.

you should have seen what my brother did to our pitbull.... he was luck that she was a nice dog, i mean not only is it not a nice thing to beat up a dog, but when the dog is about 2 times as big as you and is a pitbull.... really dumb idea.

my brother would literately walk up to her when she was sleeping and kick her right in the stomach and she would jump up and just stare at him not even with a mean face, then try to walk away with my brother still kicking/hitting her.

it's good he doesn't do the same thing to our dog since we have chowhahas now and he could easily kill one in one move. it's just sad that I have become his new target... well the good thing is that even tho he may have more physical strength his method off attacking is really unorganized, and in his swings he loses a lot of power since he doesn't know how to hit correctly. in the past fights i can say that i won them  ;) he may get a bunch of hits into me but i get a few good hits, and he always backs off first. tho the funny thing is when ever he says he can beat me up till i cant move around his friends i bring up those fights and he completely twists the story to make it sound like i he beat the crap out of me... such a fail ^^

my dog is part pitbull but is very jumpy :)
there are so many time i just want to beat him up
if i beat him up then i get in trouble
if i dont beat him up he mocks me and i tell him to shup the fu#% up but he just laughs
if i tell on him then my parents just dont see my reasoning and he just laughs and says im a snitch
i just want to get out out of here i just want to be left alone but he just keeps follwing me
my parents say i should not treat him bad cause they say "he's your bro hes your friend that will love you for life" but i just say "well if he is my friend i chose him as an enemy"

ps you think its odd to have a dog and have a fursona that is a wolf?

sounds exactly like my brother.... but anyway don't let his insults get to you. and your parents sound just like mine.... my mom always talks about how we need to work together and listens to some lies my brother says, my dad just doesnt want to deal with the fights and tells us to work it out. another annoying thing about my mom is that she says i annoy my brother sometimes, which i don't. she always walks in on the middle of a fight with me insulting my brother, then thinks i started it. im being honest here not exaggerating.... i have not started a single fight with my brother for years, he has always been the one who starts them....

my way of dealing with my brother is mostly on the defensive. i try as much as i can to not even talk to him. if he tells me to do something i dont listen since he is not in charge of me. i rarely insult him, i only insult him sometimes after he insults me but most of the time i just say some thing around "sure..." my favorite insult from him is when he says something like this "no one will ever like you, you will die alone, and will never find someone" which is pretty ironic since i all ready found that special person ^^ <3 you Sciex ^^

and if that is not a rhetorical question, i don't find it weird at all to have a fursona who is a wolf and you have dog/s. my mom, me, and brother own 9 dogs in total. (sad that my brother has a dog)

Discourteous driving. Are turn signals optional equipment on certain models?  >:(

Well.. idk.. Is it odd for my Fursona to be a Wolf but I get along really well with my cat (at the moment at least. He hasn't tried to kill me recently and he's actually been a bit more affectionate)

anyway.. my response is no. It's not weird, because allot of people who have canine fursonas like canines so therefore allot of them have dogs (or some. I'm not sure what the statistics are for this).

That my skin is so white that I can light up walls if light gets on my arm or anywhere else really.  :P I'm not kidding...

That people automatically assume they're right about every little thing.  >:(

And that it's like they purposefully make chocolate almost too delicious.  :D

This stuff grinds my gears every damn day!  :goldpissed: :goldbloody: :goldpissed: :goldbloody:

1. The bus is not a damn restaurant! If you bring food or drinks on the bus, then wait till you get home to finish them! There's a reason why eating and drinking isn't allowed on the bus. It's to prevent food and beverages from spilling and making a mess.

2. USE CORRECT CHANGE! Bus drivers do not carry change!

3. The very front seats are for the eldery and handicapped. If you are not eldery and handicapped, then you are not entitled to sit in those seats!

4. Bus drivers are not an encyclopedia nor are they Google. Nearly every day, I see a passenger who gets on the bus and asks "Where is so and so address?" It's the passenger's own responsibility to learn where places are. Not the driver's.
