Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

This old lady that chewed me out a few minutes ago is giving old ladies a bad name. First she starts by saying we were intentionally trying to pass off used floormats as new, and then she finishes by saying the employee discount I'm giving her isn't good enough. I'm sure she has this notion in her head that all car dealerships are inherently evil, but there's no way we would build up a loyal customer base if all we did was try to pull one over on our customers all the time. People like her are the reason why nobody wants to work front counter in a car dealership. I mean, we waived the fee that we get charged to overnight your new floormats here, and we waived the shipping charge to have them direct shipped to your house, and we're also giving you employee prices on the new set of floormats (which is essentially giving her a discount off the old pair), honestly there's not much more I can do, and you're already raking me over the coals, and you're still not happy? F that noise.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

If one must be a religious bigot, as least be an intelligent one, unlike these folks:

Here, judge and police officers mistake a Sikh for a Muslim and then engage in illegal anti-islamic intolerance
https://www.aclu.org/blog/religion-b...rag-or-go-jail

And this Sikh was beaten up, once again because violent Islamophobes don't know their religions
Sikh professor beaten in possible hate crime in New York - CNN.com

Of course, the irony of the second story is that the professor's attackers committed an act of terrorism, all the while calling the victim a terrorist.

As to the thread itself: smug, condescending coworkers who think their sh** don't stink and that they are the only smart people in the room.

I thought I was the only one. I figured if I put that out there, nobody else would do it, leaving me in the clear.

People who vague-book.

Got something to say? Just say it. Don't fish for sympathy.

By "vague-book" do you mean a Facebook status saying just, "Well, that was annoying," thus implicitly forcing you to give them attention in a drawn-out way?

If so, yep, I agree.

Yeah exactly.

Unfortunately I have family members that do it. It's beyond annoying.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

I've been mesmerized by that guy for some reason. I think partially is because he's pretty damn gorgeous and the other reason is because that's still super f'ing creepy.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

What do you do when you have that one friend who comes over to your house to watch a movie and he leaves the place looking nasty? My friend comes over, we order some pies from Dominos, settle on watching Old School (still hilarious fyi), and by the end of the night he's single handedly demolished a slurpee, 2 bottles of water/mio, and a whole pie by himself. So after he leaves I notice that all my door handles that he touched are greasy, and he left his empty pizza box/big ass slurpee cup/bottled waters lying everywhere. WTF? I even gave him paper towels to wipe his hands so everything he touched wouldn't be greasy. Damnit.

Mooby, he sounds like a homeless person with a social life. Cut him loose.
