Default What Really Grinds Your Gears? II: The Reckoning

Well here we go again gents. We had this thread on Avatar-Forums, and being the pessimistic bunch of whingers we are, it did rather well. Basically, write about anything that annoys you or something bad you have personally experienced recently.

Grant me the honour of starting!

It grinds my gears when my favourite Avatar-based forum gets taken down from the internet. (No disrespect to this one )

^ I agree ma tsmukan most of my Avatar journey was centered there. It feels so weird and sad not to be able to go to AF everyday.

What grinds my gears? When people with no apparent heath issues try to relate with me when they aren't feeling well. Unless you have a severe or chronic medical condition you have no clue. You have a headache... I have a rare incurable condition that will kill me if it's not treated properly... It isn't the same so stop trying to make like it is.

Being unable to do anything while this country goes to s***. This isn't localized to the US, I suppose. Fascism seems to be en vogue in the eurozone (and the UK) too.

On a more general note, politics. Politics grind my gears.

I have seen no fascism over here thank you sir.
Our vote to leave the EU let a tiny minority of empty-headed lager-guzzling chavs think it acceptable to beat up some foreigners but they were swiftly caught and dealt with.


What grinds my gears is opening my first bottle of corked wine yesterday. I don't know how this happened, but it wasn't good.

What grinds my gears is people throwing common sense out the window when they are dared to do something dangerous and stupid. They want to prove how tough they are. They know what they're doing is likely to result in serious injury or worse. They just don't care.

I should mention that I've heard like 5 to 10 times 'Bad Blood' in 2-3 days in June 2015.
I've also been able to count the number of times Carly Rae Jepsen says ''really'' in the chorus of 'I really like you'.
That was a trial version, but still.

My hypothesis is that the company is paid by the frequency of plays or something, so they try to squeeze as many songs as possible.

When you are trying to socialize with new people but you can't have a conversation because the chosen venue has really loud music. And it isn't even good music.

celebrities who endorse products you know damn well they're never gonna use or own. case in point, Matthew McConnaughey and his Lincoln MKV. you seriously think that dude has a Lincoln on his estate grounds?! maybe the groundskeeper drives one. ironically, the other night on AMC after Walking Dead was over, i saw two commercials back to back, with McConnaughey in them, the first one was him drinking some Wild Turkey bourbon and telling you to drink up, and the second was him driving another fine SUV product from Lincoln. i think Matt was driving that car under the influence of some liquor, lol

My computer was full of malware after accidentally downloading something I shouldn't have. I couldn't access System Restore or install any anti-virus software. I couldn't even refresh or reset my computer. I was scared I had messed it up for good until I used Adware Cleaner presented by Malwarebytes to fix it. It resolved all the issues, and I managed to get System Restore and the ability to install anti-virus software back. I can refresh or reset my computer again. I used Malwarebytes to scan for the malware and found over two thousand five hundred pieces of it. I managed to delete every single one of them. Now, my computer is doing just fine.
