You know what really grinds my gears?

When a lunch rush ends, and it's calming down at work, but then one person, ONE PERSON comes through the drive-thru and orders, and a hundred other people see it and decide they're hungry, so they drive through and get the same ******* order as the first customer...almost always an item that takes forever to cook and which has to be made to order, which drives up our drive-thru timer and lowers our quality rating during inspections.

And that is what really grinds my gears.

Mine is crickets in the field downstairs, they make this buzzing sound at night and in the morning, but I'm pretty much used to it.

What really grinds my gears as a student at a university:

-People who are enrolled in the Early Childhood Education/Elementary Education major, yet NEVER refer to their major as anything but "elementary ed."
-The elementary education majors who manage to lock up 90% of the computers in the lab before 10 AM EVERY SINGLE DAY!
-People in the anthropology major solely because they want to be Crime Scene Investigators (CSI).
-People who drive trucks with ridiculously loud engines and dangerously high lift-kits.
-People who text message in class.
-People who text message in class even though the syllabus clearly states NOT to text message.
-People who text message in class even though the syllabus clearly states NOT to text message, and then complain about how unreasonable the professor is for politely asking them to follow the rules of conduct.
-Professors who allow students to text message in class.
-Text messaging.
-Plagiarism. This REALLY grinds my gears! Especially when the professor makes a big deal about how badly any offenders will be punished but when presented with a clear case of plagiarism, refrains from exacting the appropriate punishment (i.e: EXPULSION!).

What really grinds my gears is whenever I go to Autozone to buy a light bulb for my car and they assume I want to buy the bulb grease so they politely add it to my ticket....or when they assume I wanted to purchase the warranty with my shocks so they charge me $1.90 for each shock and never mention it to me.....something has to be done with these con-men.

What really grinds my gears...

- People who create multi-accounts to cheat in games that clearly state you can only create one account.
- Automobile companies who cheat their own injured customers even though they have a duty to treat their customers in good faith.
- Spammers
- Messy freeloaders who stay in your house for long periods and are too tired to even put their own plates in the kitchen. Perhaps it is magic that they suddenly have lots of energy when it it's party time.

Sometimes if you say things the bot can't understand, they redirect you to an operator. Just leave your phone up to the TV, and wait.

Rofl. What is your limit? Some say for the 65 MPH freeway, that 70 MPH is what the fast lane is. But some will say you should go 75 in the fast lane on a 65 freeway. Goofy

Telemarketers calling you back after you immediately hung up for the 3rd time. Or saying it's a quick survey and ask 30 questions. Hate them!

Same about telemarketers, except I never pick up, and they never leave a message.

It is always some odd number calling. Sometimes while I sleep and forget to set my phone to Silent. I will probably never forget to set it to Silent again...because if I forget, I will pay for it.

RT @ DragonMaster Jay: The speed limit on highways is anywhere from 65 to 75. Some people on a 45 mph stretch in town will drive 35 in the fast lane.

Calls during dinner time from telemarketers or political candidates (even when you are on the "Do Not Call" list). (Gunsmoke)

Y'know what really grinds my gears?

People who complain about books they haven't read, shows they haven't watched, or music they haven't listened to.

People whose entire opinions come from the AVGN or TGWTG. I don't mind you listening to Internet reviewers, but THEY ARE NOT INFALLIBLE PEOPLE.

People who complain about how "unrealistic" crime shows are. They'er TV SHOWS.

People who try to shove their opinions down your throat.
