People who call dog people 'egocentric'and 'stupid'. Isn't it ironic that you wrote about yourself, a cat person and called yourself intelligent? who's the egocentric one? Why are you on this forum anyway? People like you waste my time.
In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semi human. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog. ~Edward Hoagland
I'm with you on yours Heather! Good ones!! :) All except for the God Bless remark and the one about gay/lesbian marriages.....my beliefs are way different than yours but to avoid a massive heated discussion....we'll agree to dissagree on it!! :)
"How about this one...people who wait to get their money out of their purse or write a check until the very last minute. I work at a university bookstore and it happens all the time." O M G You read my mind, it happens constantly, People, you know your in line and you know your making a purchase, where is your money, your check, your charge? Oh, wait a minute, I know its right where you put it when you reached for your cell phone and decided to have a conversation instead of being ready. S C R E A M
IRISH thank heavens we all know your just being facetious!! LOL. Gee that felt good to get that off my mind!
"Blaming animals when the blame should be placed on humans."
I agree Pope it's not cat vs dog it's an irresponsible owner vs. responsible owner
Some other things that get me going are: -When people tell me they gave up a dog/cat due to having new baby/moving/or significant other didn't like animal(all weak yet common reasons) -People who judge a book by it's cover... not all Pit Bulls/Dobes/Rotts are monsters in fact some of them are just big baby's -How every product I buy has so much packaging now it feels like I am cutting & throwing away more than I am actually using. -When I buy something at one store only to go to the next and find it 1/2 off I could say more but I am a bit OCD so no use getting into all of it lol
It bothers me that companies/organizations are using the "buy our product and we'll donate so you don't have to" tactic so shamelessly.
If you want to give to a cause, write a check or volunteer. Donating directly (rather than funneling donations through corporations) means you are in control. You know how much of your money is going to the organization. And you get the tax deduction.
People who beg. I have zero toleration when being hounded for cigarettes, money, favors... Guilt trips. People who constantly talk. Circling sharks when you are trying to shop or even just look at something "Can I help you with something?", "Are you finding everything okay?" Not with you lodged in my rear, no. A little room please. The people who sell flowers at red lights.
And as of last night, the stupid woman "standing in line" at Best Buy. After looking at 4 different stores for one stupid adaptor, we finally found the last one they had in stock at Best Buy. We approach the cash register, look around at the Halloween DVDs they've got displayed for a few minutes and there is a woman standing there. She is about 20 feet away from the register, leaning on the shelves like a sorry sack. After about 3-4 minutes of browsing, I announced to my boyfriend "I'm ready when you are. Let's pay for this thing, and get the hell out of here." Walk past this woman toward the register, get just about to the register and I hear "Excuse me! EXCUSE ME! I am waiting in line." After a quick glance around, we can see she is the only person standing there.
So, not only did she hear that we were going to the register, she let us just about get to it (walking those 20 feet) before announcing that she was in line. Needless to say, we are not the type of people who would leave that scenario without giving her our opinion on it, let's just leave it at that. lol
Main Entry: ir·re·gard·less Listen to the pronunciation of irregardless Pronunciation: ˌir-i-ˈgärd-ləs Function: adverb Etymology: probably blend of irrespective and regardless Date: circa 1912
nonstandard : regardless usage Irregardless originated in dialectal American speech in the early 20th century. Its fairly widespread use in speech called it to the attention of usage commentators as early as 1927. The most frequently repeated remark about it is that “there is no such word.” There is such a word, however. It is still used primarily in speech, although it can be found from time to time in edited prose. Its reputation has not risen over the years, and it is still a long way from general acceptance. Use regardless instead.
Sorry, didn't get far enough to see that someone else had looked up irregardless also! One of my biggest pet peeves is when people use the phrase, "It isn't my job". Who cares if it's your job or job description. Sometimes, it is understandable and right that you use that phrase, but if it's just being used to get out of doig something, for shame!
