Noise.


I'm sick to death of listening to toddlers who modify their vehicles/stereos in order to compensate for their obvious shortcomings. I'm tired of hearing the sounds of the muffler-less man-child, and I'm sick of hearing his boosted music.


I'm also tired of loud venues, especially restaurants. It turns out I'm not crazy, the restaurants are actually being designed for increased noise. This is apparently to ramp up alcohol sales, but the result is this old couple have closed our wallets and cook almost exclusively at home.


When I'm at the filling station and the Harley next to me is revving, the idiot aboard thinks he's showing the steely-eyed gaze of Bronson on his ride. All I see is the self-satisfied look of a toddler on a pot.

I'm less tolerant about spending time with people who are dysfunctional, negative, and have mental disorders. I'm not willing to be someone's unpaid therapist. I'm not talking about someone going through a rough patch. I'm talking about people who always have crazy, chaotic things going on in their lives. Such as moving to new apartments every few months, sleeping around, can't pay basic bills yet spends money on frills, cancels out on plans too often, can't get a job, possible drug or alcohol addiction, in heavy denial about health issues and unable to address ballooning weight but eats crap food, etc. I want to spend my valuable time left on earth on people who bring something positive to the table. However, I don't mean people who no fault of their own have troubles and difficulties. I WILL spend time on friends who are in a rough patch or helping bereaved or disabled people. I'm just not willing to help able people who refuse to address their own issues.

Not much really bothers me, but , as I age, I put up with BS a lot less. In the past, I might have bitten my tongue, but when someone says something that is out in left field today, I may call them out on it. Also, if someone is coming across as rude, I will ask them if I did something to offend them or not.

I just had to call our help center at work to solve a problem , and the guy was being very short with me. Finally, I said " You know, Jordan, normally you are great to get along with, but today you are treating me like I am a hinderance somehow !" He apologized and said they had lost some people in his dept and he was overwhelmed. Ok, but now he knows his behavior was unacceptable.

I guess, like most old people, I just blurt out stuff more these days !

What am I most intolerant of, as I've gotten older?

My #1 gripe: Unpleasant, angry, mean-spirited people at online forums who say ghastly things about you (and your comments) that they would never ever say to your face.

We're all doing our best and we're all just human beings with lots of problems and challenges. Why spew vitriol at a total stranger, when it's just as easy to show a little grace and compassion?

People who are rude to store employees. I'm sure the deli clerk has no idea why the price of something went up.

People who bring children into this world when they don't want all the responsiblilty that comes with raising them.

Adults who mooch off their parents and parents who enable them.
