We were making bottle rockets at school today for STEM week (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths). No matter how hard you try to prevent it, 10 year-olds WILL get the lemon juice, vinegar and bicarbonate of soda all over you. I only polished my brogues at the weekend.

i know this is petty in the grand scheme of things and very American of me, but i really hate it when some clown in front of me in the fast food drive-thru, orders 42,386 things off the menu, and i just wanted a spicy chicken sandwich and that oh so damn delicious cookies n cream milkshake all lickety-split. go inside with your order from hell, you no-manners rude neanderthal jerkoff!!!

What grinds my gears is having a cold. *Sniff* I should have eaten my vegetables when my parents told me to.

What grinds my gears is conservatives demanding everyone boycott "Beauty and the Beast" starring Emma Watson because of a thirty-second scene that implies LeFou is gay. What really happens is he ends up accidentally dancing with another man during the Gaston song. Both men are shocked by this. It doesn't happen for the rest of the film. I honestly believe conservatives used this as an excuse to make noise. They're always accusing liberals of doing that, yet they are doing it themselves. Talk about hypocrisy.

steering-wheel holders who don't use their turn signals.

people who wear colored contact lenses and try to tell you their obviously brightly ridiculous pupil/irises are real.

speed demons who demonically drive 83 mph in a ****ing parking lot!

trash truck operator who always leaves your bins laying on their sides in the street. grrrr.

Hmm, British conservatives and American conservatives must be different. We have the Conservative party which I support and I do not feel anybody else can be trusted with the safety of my country.

What grinds my gears is having nothing to complain about. It grinds them most thoroughly.

In America (from my impression during the 2 years I've lived there, anyway), I've gotten the impression that things are very polarized - most people see themselves as either strictly conservative or strictly liberal, which is very different from the political system in Sweden. People tend to lump ideas together into one of these two groups and dismiss everything "conservative" if they see themselves as liberal and vice versa.

Conservative ideas in America tend to focus on traditionalism, family values, and independence from the government, all for better and for worse. I think there's a few core ideas among American conservatism that are sound, but also many concepts that I personally much disagree with. As usual it seems like the healthiest approach is a good middle-ground.

I'm aware this is of course simplifying and generalizing very strongly (and ironic seeing as I'm practicing the polarization I'm complaining about!), but nonetheless this is the general impression I've had.

Ah, well that makes sense. Things probably aren't quite as polarized here in the UK but when people talk about being conservatives, it is with regards to being a supporter of the Conservative party (the other main party being Labour).

I found something that grinds my gears anyway. I went to make a cup of coffee earlier and didn't shut the fridge properly after putting the milk back :/

What grinds my gears is having to go to college when I would rather sit at my computer and contribute nonsense to the internet.

windows 10, it is a cancer, period, hrh just because I move the cursor across the screen does not mean that I want to be pulled off the internet to look at all the ugly boxes with the "apps" inside them. Its like trying to navigate through honey. that and I broke my tablet, so as punishment I am sent to digital hell by using the family laptop which is powered by windows 10.

Windows 10 is nasty, the laptop is nice though, but hopefully I can get my tablet back soon.
