    What really grinds my gears:
    • Realizing I have a first world problem when I only want to play Wildstar and everything else bores me.
    • When people try to lay a finger on my Butterfinger.
    • Washington DC traffic.
    • The other people driving cars in Washington DC traffic.
    • Michael Bay.
    • People attacking others because they have a disagreement, physically or verbally.
    • What they did to Deadpool and Gambit (my favorite superhero) in X-men Origins: Wolverine.
    • People that put hashtags on Facebook.

    Bigotry in any form.
    Unconscious and Internalized Bigotry.
    A lack of a good lubricating agent to protect gears from grinding.
    People who use trochees as their guiding light in online interaction (Zombie, Ninja, Robot, Cyborg, Pirate, Monkey, Penguin, etc.)
    The dissing of Roleplay.
    The dissing of Intelligence/Thoughtfulness.
    The term "Dissing"
    When a beautiful clockwork mechanism remains unoiled long enough to be permanently damaged by gear-grinding.

    • People who beg for beta on Twitter, Facebook, etc. (The Beta thread here is okay).
    • People that only want to use the beta as a "try before you buy."
    • People who are in the beta, don't take the time to read the NDA, and violate it.
    • Gamers who consider themselves elite, look down on others, and generally have a toxic attitude.
    • People who threaten or go through with blocking any player who doesn't have a lore-appropriate character name that isn't considered offensive. Only applies on a non-RP server.
    • People who don't even try to have lore-appropriate names on an RP server.
    • That there are a lot of things that grind my gears, but I don't wanna make this post too long.

    • Raiding without rum.

    • MMOs that are really single player games online
    • People who are calling a fail for a game in dev before the thing is even complete

    My list is too long to put everything here, so here are the main ones.


    • People who consistently drive 10-15mph below the limit, and there's no way around them (this has happened to me every single work day for the past 1.5 months) aarg!

    • People who never let someone else finish a sentence.

    • People who spend more effort trying to get someone else to do their work for them yet still take credit and still get paid. (Fire them and give me their paycheck)

    • People who jump from beta to beta and do nothing but complain. I see the same names in many beta tests and they do nothing but whine about everything. Just get off the internet already.

    • People who think the whole MMO conecpt was invented by Blizzard.

    • People who just run around in a game inspecting others yelling "You suck!" (Really? Did that make you feel more like a man? What an insecure person that type must be). /ignore

    • People who feel it's ok to push their political/sexual preferences onto everyone else, but won't listen to anyone else's point of view. (Here's a tip....I don't care. I don't care about your politics. I don't care about whether your hetero or not, I don't care what color you are. What I care about is whether or not you're nice person. Nothing else matters).

      Ok...enough ranting...Now where's that cake?

    • Tech support, specifically; working for it and everything it stands for
    • Being stuck in the middle
    • Doing all the work, and then being blamed by those not doing any of it, only to realize the reason their mad at you in the first place is because you didn't let them do any of the work, which then repeats this vicious cycle

    • Cake.
    • Gas.
    • Cats.
    • People who beg for W* Beta Keys.
    • Cats. God I hate cats so much.
    • Birds. Why you gotta take your poops on my car? Why not my neighbors shiny new Benz?
    • Cats, I suppose I already said this, but I'm going to say it again. Cats.
    • People who mooch for money off of you, when the only bills they pay are their cellphone bills and still make 2-3x more spending money than you do.
    • Styrofoam.
    • Loose change.
    • People who dump buckets of perfume/cologne all over themselves.
    • PEOPLE WHO DON'T USE THEIR GOD DAMN BLINKERS WHEN DRIVING! :mad:
    • People who say "Lol" or " XD " at the end of EVERY sentence. Once is enough, we get it, you made a giggle. Move on.
    • Mail. I FREAKING HATE Mail so damn much, like... THERE IS NEVER A GOOD OUTCOME WITH MAIL! It's either someone trying to get you to buy something, or bills... THAT'S IT.
    • Cats.
    • Apple, I FREAKING HATE APPLE PRODUCTS. Like. I honestly think Steve Jobs was the Devil.
    • Kids man... they're absolute demons.
    • Fast food.
    • Cats.

    Watching a live stream and seeing the bumbling idiots in chat...... >.< The question has been answered 500 times already and you feel the need to ask it again.

    People who refer to The Doctor as Doctor Who.... Drives me absolutely insane

    A big one for me is people who shoot video on camera phones but cannot be bothered to flip the phone on its side. So instead we are subjected to that stupid narrow vertical image.

    People who blindly follow rules. ;)

    People, organizations, and everything else that relies on dogma.
    Dogma, the actual opiate of the masses.
