Title: Let's vent!
Post by: Slappy on July 12, 2010, 11:03:16 AM
Ever just feel the need to vent?  I sure as he** do!  So let's get a thread going with all of our pet peaves and frustrations.

I hate stupid drivers.  You know what I'm talking about...
They're going 10 under the speed limit until you try to pass them, then they speed up!
They're in the "fast" lane, but they're not even going the speed limit.
They're talking on their phone, eating a hamburger, doing their make-up, reading a book/map, and trying to drive.
They have no idea what the word YIELD means.
Green light = sit there, Yellow light = floor it to beat the red light, Red light = do whatever you want!

Okay, I feel better for now.  Anyone else?

Sweetheart, I think you have some anger issues...  ;D

However, I concur.  And wish to add to the list the fact that NO ONE seems to know what a turn signal is, let alone use it!  And when they do, they leave it on for 10 more miles cause they forgot they actually used it for once!! 

Also, just because there is no one coming from the opposite direction does not mean you can turn LEFT on red!!  Are you a moron?  This isn't England!! 

And last but not least, if you decide to tail me or ride my bumper, don't assume it will make me go any faster.  It won't.  More than likely, I will drive even slower, or possibly perform a brake check.  BACK THE **** OFF!!



This has nothing to do with driving, but why do people assume that they don't need to tip me after I groom their dog?  You tip your hairdresser, don't you?  I'm doing the same thing, except it's HARDER.  Tip me!  I'm broke!  Your dog was a pain in the ass!

Thank you for listening.   ;D

Nope, no anger issues here...   :-\

I'd like to add to my list...

The fact that people that DON'T work find it necessary to make their doctor/hair/proctologist appointments at the same time I'm trying to get to work! 
People that don't know to turn their headlights on at night.  Or people with daytime running lights that don't realize they need to turn their taillights on, too.
Rubberneckers (enough said).
And just because their isn't a double yellow line painted down the middle of the road does NOT mean you can drive down the middle of the road.  Stay on your own side!

Oh, and I work for Toyota.  Let me just say this, it's pronounced "Toy-0-ta".  It's not "Tie-o-da" or "Tee-o-da".

And why is it that the only people that ever get promoted are the ones most incompetent at their job?


Title: Re: Let's vent!
Post by: ~honey~ on July 12, 2010, 05:26:31 PM
Ooo, I forgot about the lights thing.  That's a good one.  What about turning them on when it's raining?  That's a rule, I'm pretty sure. 

Also, the day of the week is FRI-DAY, not Fri-da-day, or Fry-dye.

No, I don't want to mash the lights.

It is pronounced YOU'RE welcome, not YOU welcome. 

And I swear to god if one more person writes PODDLE instead of POODLE in my appointment book, I'm going to kill them.

What fun would a room be with you, Doctor?

Are "poddles" related to "Rock-welders" and "Datsuns"?

Oh My Goodness, you guys are too funny!

Doc, with all of this pent up anger and frustration, it sounds like they needed this opportunity so they could share a room.:-D


Title: Re: Let's vent!
Post by: Slappy on July 13, 2010, 11:46:44 AM
No one else ever gets road rage?  I deal with people all day every day, and sometimes I just get a bit frustrated. 

For instance, when people call in to make an appointment, but they don't know what day or time they want to or are able to come in.

Or people who go to McDonald's, and don't want this on their cheeseburger, but they do want this, blah blah blah.  If you want it your way, go to Burger King!

Or the people in Wal-Mart in the "20 Items or Less" lane with a whole cart full of stuff!!!

No one else on here ever runs into anything like this?


Title: Re: Let's vent!
Post by: ~honey~ on July 13, 2010, 03:57:01 PM
I always share the love with YOU Jonas!!   ;)

And yes, "poddles" are related to "lab-doddles", "datsuns", "doxsuns", "great pirinees", "rottwhylers", "sheperds", "beshons", "shitsus", "neufunlands", "schnouzers", and a whole host of other dogs I have never seen in my entire life.  I swear some days I work with morons.  Why, for the love of poop, do you work in a GROOMING SALON at a PET STORE if you have no idea what these basic dogs are???

In that order, the correct dogs are labradoodles, dachshunds, great Pyrenees, rottweilers, shepherds, bichons, shih-tzus, newfoundland, and schnauzers, FYI.  Seriously, ridiculous.  I'm sure there are more, that's just what I have seen recently. 

Oh, and if you don't have a handicap permit, THAT SPOT ISN'T FOR YOU!  Plus, being old should not count as handicap.

New vent...

When someone says they'll do something, you've reminded them countless times, they tell you that they've done it, but when you check...

Hasn't been touched!!!

 >:( I absolutely hate men and women who think that you need to dumb it down and show cleavage to get men to do what they are paid to do. I hate getting in back of a pick-up truck that has a driver in a baseball hat. Start watching, every time someone is driving a pick up truck and wearing a baseball hat they are going way under the speed limit. I also hate driver who do not use their signals. My gosh it takes moving just one finger, how freakin lazy is that. Boy, I feel better lol.

I hate the way society has dumbed-down in order to keep people constantly entertained.  Whatever happened to just using your imagination to keep yourself occupied?


Title: Re: Let's vent!
Post by: krb187 on July 15, 2010, 10:26:13 PM
I'm starting think imaginations aren't in the American DNA anymore except for a select few. All of whom seem to be on here funny enough haha.


Title: Re: Let's vent!
Post by: Slappy on July 16, 2010, 05:12:24 PM
I agree 100%.  I say this all the time.  I love the new horror movies.  Yes, gore is shocking, but I miss the imagination behind movies like the original Halloween, or Pet Semetary, or even Psycho.  Where you didn't necessarily see every gory detail, but what my mind filled in was usually far worse.


Title: Re: Let's vent!
Post by: krb187 on July 16, 2010, 09:48:20 PM
Yeah I feel the same way Slappy, but if they did that  nowadays 3/4 the audience would walk away going, "Well what the hell happened?" We live in a society where everything has to be given to us or else we don't know what to do with ourselves.

you left out the people who SEE you coming toward them, but pull out anyway only to drive 100 yards and turn left AFTER they wait for 17 cars to pass!


Title: Re: Let's vent!

I know what you mean, dang I just want to walk up to the idiot and slap them just because they are stupid,

Post by: Slappy on September 07, 2011, 07:34:27 PM
I love when you're stuck in traffic, and you're coming up to an area where it goes from 2 lanes to 1 lane.  You're nice and let someone over, and then they let 20 other people over in front of them!  WTF?!


Title: Re: Let's vent!
Post by: Cousin Levi Slaughter on September 07, 2011, 07:39:22 PM

I feel your pain Slaughter and Jonas.  I love when you're sitting in the movie theater, and someone's cell phone goes off.  Now, any normal person would hit a button to silence it.  But not this cornhole.  No!  He/she decides they need to take this call.  And for some reason, their phone has the brightest screen of any phone I've ever seen.  It literally blots out the sun.  And of course they have to virtually scream into the phone, and you get to hear the entire pointless conversation!


Title: Re: Let's vent!
Post by: Sissyhaunt on September 07, 2011, 07:53:35 PM
Um, yeah, Dr. Hacker sir, have I told you that I think you are a wonderful doctor?  I think you, Slappy, Spooky and the rest are so nice and uh sweet and such gentlemen. I am pretty sure you meant to mention someone else in your post earlier and uh got the name wrong. Yeah that's it.  ;D

No need for targets.  Remember its hard to catch a moving target anyway.

Or they get violent?  Those are the best!  That's when I know how much of a pansy you really are.

thats exactly right, but one night man it seemed like every group there was one guy like that and it started to get old


Title: Re: Let's vent!
Post by: Dr. Johnas Hacker on September 12, 2011, 06:32:54 PM
Those are the ones that will get nothing from me or their group..... In other words they might as well find the nearest exit.


Title: Re: Let's vent!
Post by: Sissyhaunt on September 13, 2011, 09:32:54 AM
I can't stand that! If you are going to a haunt expect to get scared and if you are going to talk smack, DON'T GO! The actors aren't there to be anyone's verbal or physical punching bag! I ended up with one of those types in our group one year and "accidentally"  ran him into walls or whatever was near several times. I got away with it because everyone knows I am a chicken lmao. Dumb jerk!


Title: Re: Let's vent!
Post by: Terrorizer on September 19, 2011, 05:20:10 PM
preach it Sis! Sometimes I feel like I never actually get truly scared, but I scream anyways. I'm not sure why, but I think it's because its just me having fun, playing along..


Title: Re: Let's vent!
Post by: Slappy on September 20, 2011, 07:21:34 AM
Scared, no.  Startled, sure!  And either one can get your blood pumping.  You'd have to do something pretty graphic and personal to actually scare me, but I have been startled at a few haunts in the past seasons.  And even that's hard to do.  So anyone that can get me to jump, I always pay a compliment to.  Believe me, any actor I know loves to hear you say, "that was awesome", "cool costume" or any other compliment in general.  Sure, we do it for the love of haunting, but who doesn't like a "good job" every now and then?

I grew up in Southern Oregon. While I loved the mountains and Pacific Ocean, Oregon seemed to attract a lot of cults. There were the Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh cult, Friends Landing, and in 1998 there were more than 200 cultic groups existing in Oregon and Southwest Washington. Every Halloween we would hear of places not to go near because of sacrifices and other weird activity. The hospitals there even post on the news to bring your kids candy in and let them x-ray it prior to the kids eating it. There were also a few serial killers that roamed the West Coast looking for victims. I guess it is one reason I love haunted attractions, you get the scare factor without the kill factor lol. I for one appreciate that, and all the effort the haunts and actors put into their attractions! Whether they scare me or not, they have hard uncomfortable jobs. We all need to appreciate their efforts.
