I have also posted about this in the "Quirks" thread......but I hate glasses and pop cans sitting on a table without a coaster or napkin under them. I don't even like them sitting on magazines either.

The wildly immodest clothing worn by mainly young women is also something I hate----knit shirts cut down to there and showing everything but the nipple, flabby belly fat hanging over the waistline of shorts and jeans; fat women wearing tight jeans and shorts.

Guys who won't take their baseball caps off while indoors. Guys who come out to greet people they barely know without a shirt. This didn't bother me when I was much younger but today it seems a bit disrespectful.

Excessive PDA's in public. (Holding hands or a modest greeting is fine but the hanging all over each other I don't.)

Not often do you find team work in an office setting anymore. There's always one or two who can't be team players.

When people baby talk to their kids and say things like You want NUM NUM? for food and You want ba-ba's? for baby bottle. Arrgh! Stop the cutesy baby talk!
I never used baby talk with my kids!

What's even worse is when adults use it with each other. ewwwww!

3) People that don't even realize they are part of the sheep mentality and claim to be an individual.

4) People that do nothing at all to help others in anyway (I'm talking about beyond their own family and friends), and there are a lot of them in this country.

5) Women that wear so much blush on their cheeks it looks like its a bruise. You got to know what I mean.

6) The rude and crude culture that is now the norm. If the masses hated it why is it so prevalent everywhere and so accepted today.
No Sweetie, you are NOT the only one!

You would think so, but never underestimate the neuroses and/or hidden agendas of co-workers, bosses, etc. One thing I want to discuss with my psychiatrist is the issue above and how it contrasts sharply to happy/sunny gameshows like "The Price Is Right", where everybody roots for everybody to win. In many offices, you'll find people rooting for their co-workers to lose. In the workplace, why oh why can't we root for each other to win? Why can't we be like "The Price Is Right" ? Maybe it's partly because a gameshow is only an hour but jobs in theory last a lifetime.

I love good whistlers, too. "The High And The Mighty" theme song has always been a favorite of mine. Good whistlers just are not appreciated anymore.

I hate orange and purple together. Those two colors CLASH!

A nasally, whiny voice--like the way Willy Nelson sings. Cher's singing voice. Ditto Madonna.
