Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

The FDA. WTF?!?!??!

Coke changing their formula to abide by stupid FDA rule:

When the state of California added the compound 4-methylimidazole, also known as 4-MI or 4-MEI, to its list of known carcinogens in 2011, it created a problem for the soda industry.

The caramel color they used to give colas that distinctive, brown hue contained levels of 4-MI that would have warranted a cancer warning label on every can sold in the state.

And this wasn't the industry's only challenge. The Center for Science in the Public Interest petitioned the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to ban ammonia-sulfite caramel color. It's a request the CSPI repeated this week after finding 4-MI in samples of Coke and Pepsi.


And:

FDA spokesman Douglas Karas wrote in a statement that the FDA is currently reviewing the CSPI petition, but "it is important to understand that a consumer would have to consume well over a thousand cans of soda a day to reach the doses administered in the studies that have shown links to cancer in rodents."

So why ban it? Gears ground.

You should bring this to the politically thread, this is more just for little things that annoy you.

Sir, this grinds my gears, it doesn't annoy me, like certain other topics I post do.

Good day!

It reminds me of a terrible American Idol audition. Or maybe a wax museum display that people do awful things to for the sake of a funny picture.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

People who leave time on the microwave clock. I think it's pretty inconsiderate. I always think, "No, actually, I don't need to heat my meal for 13 seconds, but thanks for making me push an extra button."

For some reason, everyone at my new office seems to do this. On a microwave, where the only way to accomplish it, is to actually open the door without pushing any buttons. Ugh

I hate that too! My wife does it all the time and the microwave is my go to clock in the kitchen.

"Oh look we have plenty of time it is only 13 seconds right now."

THIS THIS THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Every time I use the microwave at the office I have to clear someone else's laziness first.

I HATE THIS.

Pushing a button is not that hard, but it shows not only laziness, but a lack of courtesy for everyone else.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

How about leaving the work microwave a freaking disaster of a mess. I can't stand people that refuse to clean up after themselves.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

I constantly clean up the kitchen. I'm the only man there full-time, so it's the women who are being complete slobs. I'm never going to eat at one of their houses if they're this messy at work.

As any married man knows, it's the women who are the real slobs of society. Men gets accused by women all of the time, but when you move in with a woman (or work with them), you discovered that bathrooms and kitchens are like nuclear disaster areas when a woman leaves it. Plus, there is hair EVERYWHERE!

Women leave more urine AND BLOOD on toilet seats than any men do. I'm always finding that kind of mess and I know I'm not doing it.

Hair spray on the mirrors, feminine products and wrappers on the floor, toilet paper on the floor...yeah, men are the slobs...SURE!

These same women I work with also like to walk around the office barefoot. Disgusting.

You wanna see nasty I'll take a picture of the microwave at my job. I'mma see if I can take a picture and upload it at home. It's disgusting and I don't want to use it but I really don't have any other options.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

How about people that call you up and leave a message with 3 different phone numbers? You can call me on my cell, my work #, or my home #. Uh uh, leave me the best # to reach you at. I'm not writing down 3 different numbers and then calling you at all of them. Please.

I always offer free lunch to anyone who will scrap the sides of my work microwave and eat. I figure if that do it they will be puking for so long that they won't want the free lunch.

This. And I think we've talked about it before, but overall, I just can't get down with voicemails period. It drives me nuts to come into my office where I have a message when it's just as easy to email me, where it comes to my laptop, desktop and phone.

I only leave a voicemail when it's a known issue with that specific person and returning emails.
