Disfavor

Fastweb, the national scholarship site that every high-school student tried. Remember it? The problem was that every other student in America knew about it too, making it impossible for anyone to win anything. This is a good example of something that people say "Well, it's better than nothing! How could it hurt?" But, unfortunately, it does. See, when there is something that provides trivial benefits but then makes you complacent about doing anything else, that's a net loss. For example, when students signed up for Fastweb, they would shrug and say "I'm SEARCHING for scholarships!! What else can I do!?" and then do nothing. And of course they would get no scholarships, and that was that. This phenomenon is also found everywhere in technology, like firewalls ("I installed a firewall, so I'm safe! --> Click on unsolicited .exe attachments). Sad.

People who use the wrong modes of communication. I was going to a friend's house and he told me to come at 5pm. So when I get there at 5:00pm and he's not there, I call him. "But I told you I'd be late!" Oh really? "Yeah, I sent you an email!" AT 4:50pm HE SENT AN EMAIL. WHYYY

Those cereal commercials on TV showing a "complete breakfast" that had THREE different types of drinks: Orange juice, milk (what about the milk in your cereal??), and coffee. When I was a kid, I was lucky if we got water to drink with our breakfast.

People who come up with business ideas, do no research, and then lose all their money. I know people who talk about opening up a franchise business because it's easy. Really! So the point of your business is to be easy! What's the failure rate of franchisees? What happens if you don't get the real estate you want? What about all the DATA AAAAARGH

Teenage angst, ugh

i dislike business books that the industry suggests you should read. tried starting innovater's dilemma, very dry and boring. hey fucking innovate yourself and make that book more interesting!

it would be better to read books that not everyone is reading so you can do your stuff in special ways. like my little pony or spongebob:)

I hate when I'm tired all night long, nod off during dinner, can barely muster the energy to make conversation - then when I actually attempt to go to sleep, I lie awake for hours. WTF.

People who think they know what's best for you. I swear, everyone in Monterey County is convinced that I should and will get a Ph.D in English - everyone, that is, except for me. Let's see - I'm bitter, lonely, and underemployed now. Why not ensure that I remain that way for life?

Waking up from a 20 minute nap feeling just as gross as if it had been an entire night's sleep.

When people say "tenants", meaning "tenets", or "for all intensive purposes" instead of "for all intents and purposes". While I'm at it, though, what difference is there between intents and purposes?

don't call pearl tea BOBA, i know that is authentic and the true way to call the drink with balls in it BUT it sounds way stupid. seriously listen to yourself. BOBA means nipple in chinese i think, so BOBA is like you are sucking a nipple, toolbox. no seriously, "oh dude i hella want BOBA" in crappy voice, that sounds awful. now listen to "hey friends lets grab a refreshing pearl tea drink and enjoy it at the park". which one sounds better?

if you are going to give me a pussy handshake just stop. don't even try it or i will make you shake my hand again or refuse from shaking anything of yours in the future
