Open Thread: Annoyances

(by chris the cynic)

From household pests to global thermal nuclear war, some things are just irritating.  Feel like sharing any of what annoys you?  If you need to vent, this is a good place.

Also, for any who don’t know, we have a space set aside for political discussion.  This is due to the current election cycle in the US being one particularly filled with things that some people need to get away from, and thus would not like in open threads.  That’s a perpetual political thread, and won’t be closed or replaced unless it gets overly full.

[As a reminder, open thread prompts are meant to inspire conversation, not stifle it. Have no fear of going off topic for there is no off topic here.]

    If your job isn’t writing, well, it’s a shame you’re bad at it but not the end of the world.

    If your job is writing, getting basic things wrong – I don’t mean “just” grammar that would be described as nitpicking by people other than me, but core ideas of English that mean your sentence ends up meaning the opposite of what you were apparently trying to say…


    A meta-irk: the fetishisation of incompetence (oh he’s doing his best, he can’t help it).
