Things that annoy you.

So I am on the phone with the cable company, wanting to upgrade my cable service.  I looked online before hand of what I would be eligible for, and made a list:

 

Keep DVR

Get NHL Center Ice

Take off HBO

Inquire about the Digital Starter pkg for more channels

 

16 minutes and 47 seconds later, we got no where.  The rep kept putting me on hold, and I had to explain what NHL Center Ice was, and he seemed overwhelmed. I was very polite, and said I would think about it. Reason being, I was put on hold many times, and did not have trust in the rep to make changes to my account.  I would have preferred to make the changes online, but it prompted for me to call in. I am annoyed, now I am going to see what the office hours are for the nearest store, and walk down there, and bring my list.

Teachers who act like teachers out in the real world.

:lol:

 

are you two so young you're in highschool?  

Considering some of the posters, who are correcting others spelling and grammar, or reminding them of posting rules, I would say we have some teachers here.  

 

Would teachers on CDC be the drunk ones, or just regular losers like the rest of us?  :lol:

 

if if you two are in highschool, stay away from the gym washroom.  B)

No. I graduated in '94.

 

what I meant was: teachers who when in the real world/general public/social setting still employ that teacher type tone of voice, inadvertently or on purpose, talk slightly down to "others", try to have control at all times, etc.

 

its usually subtle but when you discover that person is a teacher it's no surprise.

 

maybe it's a personality type and it a product of being surrounded by children day in and day out.

Yup, I've experienced the teacher control thing for sure.  I find they are the ones always looking at their watches.  I think one of the CDC posters said his wife's a teacher?  

 

'94 eh.  For me it was '68.   Grade 11 took me a couple extra years!  :lol:

Political correctness - people getting offended over some stupid meaningless crap I say that has no malice origin. 

 

Global warming - If Dinosaurs lived in Alberta, then I guess Alberta must have been hot enough to allow reptiles to survive at one time. Maybe it's not that hot after all. 

 

Socialism - if you wanna take care of everyone around you, do us all a favour. Shut the hell up and just take care of yourself. 

 

Human rights - If you have no direct impact on the outcome of my day. I don't care what you do or what you go through. I don't feel sorry for you either. 

 

Religion or Atheism - the only thing more annoying then a guy talking about God is a guy talking about how stupid you are for believing in God. You want something to believe in?! Believe me I DONT CARE.

Do you always keep your grumpy pants on? 

 

I like you LaBamba but the human rights part is pretty douchey.

Don't care, I'm so sick of everyone making a big deal about everything. I show respect for the humans around me by my actions, not by marching down the street at a gay pride parade or wearing a black lives matter T-shirt. If you wanna support human rights, just shut up and don't be a dick to people, it's easy.

Well when I was thinking human rights I had different issues in mind then the ones you listed. Those 2 I actually agree with you on.
