Yeah, you got that right. At my workplace, I see people literally blowing hours a day texting. I've never 'gotten' it, either.

The human rece seems to have a severe addiction to chattering nonsense at each other.

Parents who act like their kids are a cross to be carried. People who chomp down garlic for their health and breathe out fumes with a smile. People with smelly shoes. Arrogant public servants. Liars. Neighbors who let their tom cats run loose so stuff under my carport gets sprayed. Animals dumped like trash out in the country. Spitters and/ hawkers decorating where I walk. Same for gum spitters. Full diapers left by a parking space especially if there's a trash can in sight. Supermarkets that sell food which has an expiration date of tomorrow. Sick people coughing near me, esp. a cashier who coughs into her hand before handing me my change. The worst is liars.

Oh yeah ... That is absolutely gross. I also feel like gagging when folks spit on the ground nearby me. Go find a bathroom if you must spit.

Yeah... That is abusive in my opinion.

YES! This absolutely is irksome and I often refrain from posting in threads where I have to view some clip or read some article to understand the gist of the thread.

Nope!
