People who whine they are broke and really need extra money, but then refuse/make excuses not to work voluntary extra shifts or overtime.

This also applies to people who whine they don't have food or gas money, but just spent big bucks on fancy new gaming system/$300 shoes/super vacation and any other luxury item to be thought of.

Tell me about it.  I've known both types.

Chewing gum.  If you must chew, keep it IN your mouth and keep your mouth closed.  No cows chewing cud, please.

i cannot stand posts etc that dont use punctuation or capitalization or or or

Someone. On. Another. Forum. Who. Posts. Like. This. Every. Single. Time. And. It. Goes. On. For. Paragraph. After. Painful. Paragraph.

Apostrophe abuse

We had a chronic overeater in our small office.  When she was there, we got to listen to:  rustle, rustle, rustle (reaching in bag for snack), crunch, crunch, crunch all day long.  Sometimes, when my family is eating something crunchy, I have to leave the room.

OPPS instead of OOPS.

Small, wet pieces of paper near food.

A user on a FB group that I am a member of really loves commas.

Their posts look like this:

Blah blah blah,,,,,, Blah blah blah,,,,,, yackity,,,,,,,,smackity,,,,,,,blah blah.

It does my head in.  >:(

I was beginning to think I was the only person who ever noticed that.

Dh's computer keeps having this error message coming up telling me there's an error with the program and I need to install a new version.

Problem? They don't give any indication as to which program it is.  ::)

My tablet. I love my tablet, but right now it's driving me up the wall.

Every time it connects to the internet, it says to install the new update.
I *have* installed the update.
I've installed it three times.

And it is still telling me to install it.
Grrrrrr.

Getting the same "XXX sent you a request in FarmVille" or whatever from the same person over and over again.

I had a friend like that.  She would complain about how expensive things were and would always leave an embarrassingly small tip (I would throw in extra).  After a few times of her going out and complaining about not having much money, I was surprised to hear her mention something about her weekly manicure and how she and her DH like to go to the casino (and always seem to lose several hundred dollars when they go). 

I also hate putting the fitted sheets on DD's crib.  It is at the lowest setting now and because of safety issues the mattress is fitted very close to the edge of the crib.  It seems to pop off several times when I pull it to the other side and I always pinch my fingers.  It's even worse when DH isn't around to distract DD because she is in the room crying because I am not paying attention to her and getting in the way.

I knew people who would cry poor when their kid needed formula/diapers/etc. but then they'd go out and buy a carton of cigarettes or a bottle of pricey booze.

And then when you go to your zmc there's nothing there.. or the actual 15 requests because it was not going through on their end but made it through to you.

I'll just stick with whining about even having the zmc. I have over 300 neighbors and friends playing. No idea which of my neighbors are still playing because I can only see about 150 of them when I go to the neighbor tab.  Due to the zmc I miss out on gifts sent while I was sleeping being pushed out of the way by gifts sent 20 minutes before I logged in.

I liked it much better when as long as you grabbed your gifts within 3 days were good.

Or on the flip side, when you read the IMDb message board of a masterpiece and see threads saying "It's time they remade this."

No...no, you're not. I can't believe how many people type it that way and I still haven't figured out whether it's a really common typo or whether that's the way people think it's spelled.

Ya'll instead of y'all. It's a contraction for "you" "all".
