    @FluffySandwich and @goddessheatherr
    People who sag their pants WITH A BELT ON!
    Ugh! I just want to walk up to them and yank their pants up. Unfortunately, that is considered assault in Texas.

    "Intentionally causing physical contact when the person knows such contact will be considered offensive." *sigh*

    @lilaclovebird - I try not to even discuss religion with my brother or sister... they're much more religious, while I'm much more spiritual. They would probably say my open mindedness makes them crazy, lol.

    @APeacefulWarrior Most likely. They might not call it 'open mindedness' though. My siblings call it a 'lack of knowledge of scripture' or a 'lack of religion' or just plain 'heathenism'.

    I call it 'I don't care what you think, feel, or believe about me. I am secure in my faith and I am open to other people and their faith but yours is overbearing, so STFU!' But that's me. :innocent::kissing_heart:

    So I DON'T have to get irrationally angry about this: When people say, "you look good for your age," I reply, Thank you, so do you."

    Badly dubbed tv adverts.
    Scripted 'reality' tv e.g. made in Chelsea. Actually all reality tv.
    Men in skinny jeans, especially if that's paired with smart shoes and no socks.
    Festival 'fashion' articles. L

    Automated Telephone things. "Say yes or no:" ... No.
    "I didn't hear your response, say yes or no": ....NOOOOO! "I didn't hear your response, ending call now, have a nice day"

    Size zero women who complain about how "fat" they are.

    What should my response be?
    1. "Yes, you are a horrible fat pig.".
    2. "No, you are size ZERO, SHUT THE F UP.".

    People who abuse or neglect animals and refuse to spay or neuter their animals! Idiots!

    Also when you go to an empty movie theater and the next people who come in have to sit right next to you, in front of you or behind you. WHY?

    Also, people who talk to themselves in grocery stores. Very annoying!

    Oh, and I hate when someone waves to you, you wave back, and then realize they were waving at the person behind you! Oops!

    Seeing the same topics show up over & over here on MFP as new people come aboard, but don't bother to use the
    search function or even read the #$)%(!@%& thread titles in some fora.
    Or they post in a completely unrelated forum.
    Or their intro post is one word: "hi".

    People who use "loose" instead of "lose". (Or pretty much any misspelling, really.)

    People who use "starvation mode" without understanding what it really is. Here's a really good article about the reality.

    People who say "fat weighs more than muscle".
    People who believe it.

    People who think anecdote outweighs scientific research.

    People who ignore or deliberately misread/misunderstand research. (I gave links to several studies saying that eating
    a large breakfast, medium lunch, and small dinner leads to more weight loss than the other way around, which is
    the typical US plan), and somebody said, "well, I guess I should gain back the 154 lb I lost!". Um, no, obviously what
    you did worked OK. What the research is saying is that it could have been faster, or easier.

    The phrase coming down the pike. I know it is valid, but i've always known it as coming down the pipe and whenever i hear the former i want to punch the person in the face.

    The use of the word retarded... in reference to someone who isn't.
    Just had a conversation about this a couple days ago.
    I wouldn't use it to describe a person, because that's seen a wrong & insensitive, not PC.
    I do use it to describe my phone, which is a fairly old model and its processing speed isn't speedy.
    In other words, it's slow.
    Retarded = slow.
    I'm using the word correctly.
    But I still wouldn't say it outside of a few people who know me & understand that I mean it it the
    literal sense of the word, and am using it correctly, and would not use it as an insult.

    Stupidity... So about 90% of human beings.
    Depends on the person's IQ.
    To someone in Mensa, 98% of the population is less smart.
    To someone in Intertel, 99% of the population is less smart.

    Dealing with someone of average intelligence would be like someone of average intelligenge dealing with
    someone who has an IQ of 70 or less... which is very frustrating. (That's about 2 SD above & below the median.)

    This thread annoys me now. People can't speak their minds without being categorized as sexist, racist, retarded or whatever.
