Astringency

People who get really offended when you compare someone to a famous person. "Did you just compare him to Jesus Christ?!" they say in an indignant tone. Yes, yes I did. IT'S JUST A COMPARISON. TAKE THE MAIN POINT AND MOVE ON

Rappers who hit me with so much of the same thing (saying "hit me" sounds cool, huh):

Male rappers: "I have hos, cristal, and thongs dropping all over the place"
Female rappers: "Your girl can't do it like i can, I'm so hot i reject guys left and right, don't you want me"

Frankly, my hip-hop brethren, these claims are so tired and old that when I hear them, I just want to take a nap in a rocking chair with a piece of straw in my mouth. Please. Give me something new. Tell me your business plan. Tell me your favorite breakfast restaurant. Tell me something!!!!

Video games because they're not fun any more. Ooh, MPGs!! Ooh FPS games!! Wow, I can spend 4893895231952 hours trying to figure out how to open this door! Please give me a god damned break and let me jump on some turtles' heads. The last fun game: Super Mario Kart on SNES

CALTRAIN I HATE YOU SO MUCH. What kind of POS transportation system has the most CONFUSING schedule on earth, a web page that obfuscates its own times, and trains that sporadically don't run at normal hourly times? Now I am an educated man, but one look at their schedule here made me question the dozens of years I have spent and thousands of dollars I have spent learning how to read. Is this a personal story? MAYBE LIKE LAST THURSDAY NIGHT WHEN I WAS STUCK IN SF THANKS TO THIS HORRIFICALLY POORLY RUN SERVICE

When you go to a restaurant and try to pour the crushed red pepper on your pizza, only the stupid bottle doesn't pour more than one flake out at a time. This means that I have to spend about 15 minutes furiously pouring the red pepper, while burning about 72,000 calories. I sincerely wish there was a dump truck full of crushed red pepper that unloaded its glorious cargo whenever I snapped my fingers. It's these moderate dreams that get me through the day.

Bagels. I don't how stupid Americans started liking bagels in the late 90s, but allow me to mock you and condemn the ABSURD ACT OF EATING PLAIN BREAD WITH NO TOPPING OR TOASTING. My favorite bagels are the 12-for-$2 bagels that you get in the grocery store--the ones you actually TOAST and put cream cheese on. Yet unbelievable amounts of people will go order plain bagels (or sesame, or whatever) and just EAT THEM PLAIN!!!!! Perhaps I'm blowing this out of proportion but I can't remember ever seeing someone walk into a Safeway, buy a loaf of bread, then casually eat it while walking around on the street, hands in pockets, whistling, all the while moaning in pleasure for how "mmmmmm good" it is. I hate you, bagels.

Registrars. What is it that draws the meanest, most anti-social people to this position--at any school? Or perhaps the position actually creates disgruntled, socially awkward people. Whatever the case, I will welcome the day when this job is offshored or computerized.

Puzzles, Sudoku, and any other "games" that are not fun

Waiters who ask, "Would you like to hear our specials?" and then proceed to list about 62 DIFFERENT SPECIALS WITHOUT STOPPING TO SEE IF WE CARE ANYMORE. How many times have you been at a table when this horrific monologue started, and you and your friends are just looking at each other embarrassedly? "Please stop," I whimper to myself. "Please stop." If I were a waiter and I saw 4 of my customers looking down at the table, inspecting the nearest fleck of microscopic dust, and slowly reaching for a screwdriver with which to kill themselves--aka NOBODY WAS LISTENING TO ME--I would probably stop, leave, and send free drinks for everyone to atone for my mortal error. Quick tip: If it looks like someone is going through the pain of giving birth while listening to you, you can safely assume TO STOP TALKING RIGHT NOW.

That stupid Josh Groban song, "You Raised Me Up," which every aspiring singer on TV apparently must try to reproduce. This is like me trying out for a cooking show and making an entire meal around Spam. Why not at least pick something good to copy?

People who go on Elimidate and then get sanctimonious about others' behavior. IT'S ELIMIDATE, NOT TRAINING FOR A NUNNERY. Girls will be like, "Ugh (rolling eyes), I can't believe she did that. That slut!" Dude, she's here to win and you are here to gain other female approval. Stop wasting my time. My favorite time was when an Indian girl went on Elimidate ("Indian girl" and "Elimidate" have never been uttered together before) and was the most prudish of all...of course. WHY DID SHE GO ON!? And the best part was that she said, "My parents and grandparents will be watching this." This is exactly the same reason why I would never go on TV to play in the World Series, NBA finals, Superbowl, or any other athletic event.

Anachronistic ad agencies. I will short you all

When you get into bed and are all comfortable, but then realize you're on TOP of the sheet, so you have to get up and readjust yourself. This is so nitpicky that it's a surprise I haven't had a heart attack yet.

The moronic tendency of people to pre-judge a jury verdict before it comes out. "Oh, I know OJ is guilty," many people said, to which I replied: Are you out of your god damned mind? How on earth do people purport to know (1) whether someone really did it and (2) what a jury will say when (a) THEY ARE NOT IN THE TRIAL, (b) THEY DIDN'T WATCH ANY OF THE TRIAL, and (c) EVEN IF YOU DID YOU STILL COULDN'T PREDICT IT WITH CERTAINTY. Yet these people will nod reassuringly and essentially pat themselves on the back, "knowing" that they know the right outcome. Will they ever be held accountable? No. Will they ignore disconfirming evidence if they're wrong? Yes.

People who get overly serious about recycling stuff:
Me: "Hey, where's the garbage can?" (Btw this is at a party where everyone is having fun)
Friend: "Oh, it's right over there."
Me: (Walks over to throw my coke can away)
Friend: PHYSICALLY STOPS ME AND LOOKS OUTRAGED. "Aren't you going to recycle?" he says in the same tone as if he'd found a body in the trunk of my car
Me: (Stares at friend, blinks)

Props to my brother for suggesting this one. Now, I'm all for saving the environment when it takes a few minutes of my time, but perhaps we can stop the global war on putting ONE COKE CAN IN THE GARBAGE CAN.

I have certainly been saving up a lot of hatred over the past few months. Take cover.

What is it with these stupid pedestrians who think the laws don't apply to them? Every morning when I'm trying to get towork, some jerkoff lazily waltzes right in front of my car, his back to me, as if cars weren't coming. And this with a crosswalk 30 feet away. Either that, or I get to the crosswalk, and as soon as the fleeting green light shows, a gaggle of teenage girls strolls across as thought it were their turn. I'm sorry, I guess it's always your turn if you're 16 and think the world revolves around you.

These horrendous San Francisco intersections, always on a steep hill, where cross traffic doesn't have to stop, even though you have no way of seeing if there's any cross traffic due to the phalanx of SUV's, garbage trucks, and street sweepers obscuring the view. Oh well, I suppose it's worthwhile to endanger everyone coming north/south, because it keeps the road clear for...

...Cable cars. What a lame way to deprive dumb tourists of $5. Meanwhile, I, who actually live in this city, have to wait for hours while cable cars block intersections, stop at green lights to let more maggot tourists on board, and hold on so people can take photos. I was behind a few cars behind a cable car last week, and it blocked the intersection for a good five minutes while a couple took about 50 pictures of themselves in various moronic poses next to the car. Finally I just pulled around the left and byspassed my timid fellow motorists, and the entire cable car. As a result, I got the last really good parking space near my building. It kind of reminds me of the great Winston Churchill quote: "History will be kind to me, for I intend to write it."

People who can't get it together to use proper punctuation in business communications. I'd hate to pay $1000 for a customized sign that says "_____ At It's Finest". I must see one of those every day.

Online ads that obscure the free content I'm trying to read and can't be closed, how I hate you.

about the environment issue "I'm all for saving the environment when it takes a few minutes of my time" you really are an idiot, arent you? Putting the coke can in the right garbage can doesnt even take a few minutes it actually doesnt take any time. just open one garbage can instead of another!

People should be more polite about their recycling beliefs. No reason to get all cranky about it if a guest of yours didn't know.

As for the pedestrian thing, yea I hate that, even though I stopped driving a while ago, and technically I am a pedestrian but still, it gets aggrivating since pedestrians shouldn't be abusing their "right-of-way" all the effing time.

I'm annoyed by Jettas. And I'm from SF so that gets really annoying after a while.

I severly dislike classes where the professor doesn't actually teach anything but just talks about themeselves or who just go off on a complete tangent. I don't like paying to listen to an old person talk for two hours at 7 in the morning.

I hate finding hair in my food; and then when the waiter asks if they can bring you a new plate of food and it's like, "No, I already know that this place is unsanitary, I just want to leave and throw up in the alley around the corner."

I hate when music that I originally really liked is ruined when it starts getting played as background music for some awful HBO show.

Oh and about the Indian Girl on Elimidate, I saw something similar: my roomate was watching Top Model and there was an Indian girl and a Catholic girl from Virginia on the show and both were really prude, especially when it came to doing a nude photoshoot. Why get yourself into something like that if you know that you are going to be ashamed afterward?

I hate when I go grocery shopping and Oreos are on sale or two-for-one and then produce or basically anything else some-what healthy costs twice as much. Goddamn fat Americans. Really, lets just help the addiction why don't we?

Compared to SF Muni, Caltrain is like the Tokyo subway system in its organization and punctuality. Try even finding a bus schedule on a muni bus or at a muni stop. Don't even think about asking the driver because he's on his own schedule. And don't even get me started on the super helpful and informative Muni employees who work the Muni Metro stations in downtown SF. They don't make change, they don't provide any directions, but they do probably rip through 4-5 mags on an average shift.

They look so trashy, and the pajama pants usually have Pooh Bear or 'Happy Bunny'. Maybe, if they REALLY wanted to dress-up, Tinkerbell.

I also can't stand those t-shirts that say, "I see dumb people reading my shirt". I have something to say buddy, You are the dumb person for wearing that God-forsaken thing!

Ramit, I think I might have a game just for you. I'm a game old-timer so to say, but I loved this game. It's a novel concept, something that got me attached to screen for a couple of hours, something new and refreshing.

And there's no killing in the game, though you do shoot a lot.

The game name is Portal:

As both a waitress and restaurant manager in my former life, I can tell you two points to the forced specials monologues. One, secret shoppers will bitch because they didn't hear the specials, in full, backwards, in Sanskrit, etc. Waitstaff live in fear (disgust) of the the self-important secret shopper. And two, no matter how much that a table will profess that they don't want to hear the specials, they will bitch because they will see a plate of "exactly what they wanted" and it would have been on the specials...that they didn't hear...that they declined to hear...that they will blame you for and leave you the appropriate tip showing their displeasure for your shortcomings.

Things I hate:
- People who use ridiculously large numbers or exaggerations to try to add some weight to whatever point they're trying to make. If it's a worthy argument, it won't need it.
- People who instantly hate other people for being quiet. Do you not realise that having this attitude usually makes things worse, and giving them a chance is all it might take to help a quiet person gain the confidence they want and need?
- People who expect people to be good at the things they themselves are.
- People who hate other people for not having perfect spelling and grammar when it's not important, or not using the most suitable words in sentences when speaking casually. Can you understand me? Then it's probably good enough.
- People who talk shit about their friends on blogs, usually by taking whatever small thing they did, completely exaggerating the point so it barely resembles what said friend actually did or did not do and then insulting the friend based on this.
- People who leave these blogs up for months afterwards so that the grating words are forever there for this friend and all mutual friends to read.
- People who present their opinions with such authority that others start believing it as fact.
- People who are completely closed minded and will not accept that different people have different opinions.
- People who spend their time thinking about the things they hate (yes, I include myself in this). Go and do something more productive with your life.

Does not it common sense that you let other party know when plan changes? And if you forget at least apologize, dude. This has happened more than once and with more than one people. Do i send a vibe?
more importantly, why am I friends with these people?

Dude, you sooooo need to continue this blog. I know you're all busy being awesome and fist-bumping VCs, but you are extremely funny.
