Kate’s post on iRamble got me thinking….
It’s always intrigued me when people have an irrational hatred of something, what caused it? Some things are just downright irritating, for example I get really annoyed by blister packs for things… Alright I know the thieves can’t get into them and steal the product – but I can’t get into the damned things either!!!
So here’s the meme, list two things that irritate you for a reason (and list the reason!), and two things that irritate you for no apparent reason whatsoever!!
Things that irritate me, and why!
- Blister packs
(as I explained above) I know the thieves can’t get into them and steal the product – but I can’t get into the damned things either!!!
- Chain Letters, Forward this to five friends or else etc.
I have to fight my way through enough junk in my inbox in a day, without being told my leg will fall off if I don’t forward this to six friends, a dog and a chicken (just to annoy them and fill up their inbox as well!!).
And the interesting one, List two irrational annoyances that you can’t quite put your finger on.
- Jim Carey
Don’t ask me why – haven’t the foggiest!
- Mobile Phones
This isn’t mobile phones in general, heck I work for a company that makes them. It’s when I watch someone (usually a businessman in a suit), frantically scrabbling through his pockets for a mobile phone that’s ringing at full volume – playing the most annoying ringtone ever (usually Barbie Girl – or something equally daft). You put it in your pocket just a minute ago, for goodness sake – put it on vibrate then you’d be able to find it!!!!!
I may make a complete hash of this as I’ve not started one of these before, but lets give it a go!
- List two things that irritate you for a reason (and list the reason!), and two things that irritate you for no apparent reason whatsoever!!
