Things that make you irrationally angry
« on: October 25, 2018, 10:28:23 am »
I'll get the ball rolling.


-Students smudging makeup all over the walls and mirrors in the classroom. (Why is there a mirror in every classroom in the first place?)
-The admin lady shout talking every time she answers or makes a phone call
-Students littering on the way to school.
-Waiting in line at a supermarket or store and someone cuts in front of you and the cashier pretends like they didn't see it and serve said ***hole.
-Roundabouts with giant signs at all entry/exits clearly stating that cars on the roundabout have right of way and every single Korean on the peninsula losing the ability to read Hanguel.
- PEOPLE TYPING in CAPS LOCK For NO REASON.

Stepping over things really increases my blood pressure.
Laundry, handbags, shoes...


Also, jars left open on the counter because "I might want more."


Just put stuff away!

Noisy eating. That isn't country-specific, either. My own father is a loud eater, and I can't stand it.

So many good things in life and especially in Korea, but these drive me nuts;

Spitting everywhere like camels (especially in covered bus station platforms, and inside schools!!! Yikes! Seems to be a male 'macho' thing. Also, megaphone trucks. English grammar nazi time! : mixing up "its vs it's", "Should have went / took / saw / did etc", again, open-mouth chewing. Just can't ever get used to that!!! Don't care about dangling participles or splitting infinitives or ending sentences with prepositions, though.

These days:

1) Smelling cigarette smoke in my bathroom
2) Students tearing up pieces of paper into tiny little bits and then stashing those bits in their desks or cubicles
3) Banks
4) Lack of reasonably priced pumpkin spice food
5) Sunlight sneaking into the classroom from somewhere unknown and fogging up the projector screen
6) Students scribbling outside of lines because they think this will get some point across but then complaining about their work getting displayed later DESPITE being told that this was going to happen so  :undecided:
7) Passive aggressive line cutters -- these are worse than normal line cutters



Also, jars left open on the counter because "I might want more."


That is alarmingly specific.

Spouses and family have a funny way of creating very specific peeves for people.

Like squeezing the toothpaste at the center of the tube and scrunching it all the way in, putting the toilet paper roll on the wrong way, never paying attention to where you stick your keys or wallet so that we have to go hunting for it before we leave for something (sometimes taking so long that you end up running late), drinking the rest of the milk but leaving about a tablespoon's worth of it in the carton so that you can stick it back into the fridge and not have to throw it away yourself, not closing the cereal bag all the way or leaving the bread bag open so that the next slice gets all stale because you don't see the point when you'll just have to reopen it again later, always carrying the TV remote around with you and leaving it in odd places so that no one ever know where it is at any given moment (I can't tell you the number of times I've found it in the fridge), and leaving the door wide open because you plan to leave again shortly ("shortly" sometimes turning into an hour).

When I see bad 'finishing' on something.  For example, when you go the bathroom, and the person who's done the grouting has done a shit job.  You have one job to do, do it properly.  If you're paid to do something, don't do a half-assed job.

...dad?

People who continually complain about sh*t but never bother to change. (Suck it up, or shut up)
People who ask your opinion but then get pissed because you GAVE your opinion, ya know, the one they asked for.   :rolleyes: 
Spillage all over counters, tables, floors.  For Gods sake, just wipe it the f*ck up!  I think it's the laziness that kills me.
Waiting on people.  Not as in traffic, some one walking across the street, bank/grocery lines... but when you tell someone you're leaving at such-and-such time but you receive the "give me a minute" which always turns into 20-30 min wait.

When I play the directions in Korean and my kids say they don't understand. When asked why, they said we don't understand English. This proved my point that it is not that they don't understand, they are not listening.

Luckily my CT got pissed off after the second class this happened in and let them all have it. She even said before we started that is was in Korean and she still got the English is too hard to understand. She screamed at those kids. See it is not me, they aren't even trying.

You're in the wrong country if this bothers you.

I relate so hard to this. My mom never failed to forget where her keys were 90% of the time (I wish I was exaggerating). I'd always tell her to find a place to always leave them, but that advice never got through.

As for what makes me irrationally angry:

- People (family members mainly) who tell you "You'll understand some day." when referring to something that's an OPINION.

- Being treated like a child

- Korea's "Education" System

Improper use of apostrophes and ellipses in stupid and obnoxious ways, respectively.
Ko fills half his luggage with instant noodles for his international business travels, a lesson he learned after assuming on his first trip that three packages would suffice for six days. “Man, was I wrong. Since then, I always make sure I pack enough.”

Littering.

I suppose it's the arrogance of the act that I can't stand.  I can't get my head around how someone thinks it's ok to just drop rubbish on the floor.  Or the people who take the last sip of their coffee and plop the cup on a nearby wall or something.

To make it country specific (sorry), I see it a lot more here than I did in the UK but that's because of the absence of bins.
