People that burn my butt….

  • Websites for major US networks that don’t allow anyone outside the US to watch videos, on their website, of their programs, even when you can get their network on cable. Hellooo… Do you WANT people to watch your shows?
  • People who pay good money to go and see a movie/show and then talk all the way through it… Worse. People who pay good money to go and see a musician play, sit right up front… and then proceed to have very loud conversations instead of listening to the music. AND THEN DON’T APPLAUD at the end of songs. If you are going to be an asshole, do it at the back of the room and leave the seats up front for people who appreciate the music.
  • People who are in such a damn hurry that they can’t wait for the red light to change and start edging into the intersection and then, when the light DOES change, don’t notice that it changed and just sit there.
  • People who buy cars with standard transmissions, can’t change gears smoothly and as a result come to two almost complete stops while gearing up through intersections. Yeesh… Mario Andretti… learn to drive it or buy an automatic before someone rear-ends you!
  • “Photographers” who show up for live music shows and use their flash. Fine if you were asked to by the musician/band to take photos but if not and you didn’t ask, it’s just damn impolite to use your flash while they are trying to sing…. AND it is just as annoying to the audience that also gets assaulted by your flash. NEWSFLASH… You can usually take perfectly good photos without using a flash and if you can’t, too bad. The world does not revolve around you and your camera.
