Using half my income to pay all the different insurances i hope to never use:mad:

tedanderson 02-09-2012 08:37 PM

I hate misplacing tools while I am working and spending 5 to 10 minutes every hour looking for them.

I hate cutting the same board twice and wondering why it's STILL too short.

I hate having to use the public restroom for #2 purposes when the previous user made a total mess all over the seat.

I hate being stuck in the fast food drive thru when the person in the car ahead of me wants to get into a fight with the girl at the window.

I hate when someone parks right next to me in the middle of a nearly empty parking lot when there are several spaces close to the building.

I hate doing the "in the way" dance when I come face to face with someone walking in the opposite direction.

I hate HIGH BEAMS.

I hate having to dig through a pile of twisted lumber.

I hate having to wait for the saw operator at Home Depot.

I hate seeing when coiled telephone handset cords for landline phones get stretched out of shape.

You either googled things to hate, or need medication.

we buy them from an old dude who makes them in his free time.

$10 a pop if you buy multiples.

I shot the air hose with the roofing nailer once. Lost my balance trying to get up and BAM nailed the damn hose to the roof. I suppose I could say I hate that.

That is terrible. How can you call yourself a carpenter?
I judge guys on what kind of sawhorses they build.

FramingPro 02-09-2012 08:57 PM

I hate subs that don't clean up their mess and claim it's not in their price!

Set up for a cut and "click"...someone unplugged you and took your power.

Not if some fackball changing lanes that's too busy texting, applying makeup or reading the newspaper doesn't see me.

With that attitude, people in small cars should die in an accident with a larger vehicle. What? We should all be driving SUVs? :rolleyes:

People who say, "do you need any help???" when they really can't do much to help me.

Infomercials that make simple tasks look complicated so that they can sell you their product. E.g. "you have to pull that tab on the soda can..what a hassle! But if you get the tab puller...blah blah blah..."

people who drive 55 (or slower) in the left lane.

When cashiers don't know how to properly count back my change. Rather than counting up to the bill that i gave them, they actually count out what they are giving me or just give it to me in one big pile.

When young parents do nothing about their crying baby in a public setting.

Shopping carts with messed up wheels.

Loud motorcycles.

I worked with a crew in Memphis that the first thing they did on a new saw is take it out of he box then cut the cord and tape it together. Serious, they said it's gonna get cut anyway.
