    Pet Hates

    Ok, so this has been annoying me for a while now.

    If ever I watch some TV program (don't watch TV much at all), it always starts off good, but then they have the opening credits. I mean, what's the point in them? Can't they just advertise the cast and crew during the episode, and have a very comprehensive list of everyone at the end of the show for the major buffs? It even annoys me in Scrubs and Lost, and the combined length of their credits is about 20 seconds! The only good reason for them that I can come up with is to give the viewer a brief time to get some tea/coffee/beer beforehand ... but any dedicated viewer should have their kettle hooked up to a weekly alarm system

    Anyways, anyone else have any obscure pet hates?

    Stupid people.

    I am working at a discount clothing store right now and I get asked probably 20-30 times a day where is the mens department and where are the shoes. The mens department was moved 8 months ago, there are signs everywhere pointing to where it is now, and still people insist on asking.

    Shoes haven't moved in like 7 years, and again many signs all around and still people can't find them.

    Is it too much to ask for people to look around for even 2 seconds before bugging me for where those things are?

    I am lazy on my days off... do my laundry then but that is about it. Anything else is just me relaxing and either gaming or programming(which is not relaxing half the time... damn you debuging!)

    Somehow these two statements don't quite go together....
    There is a difference between tedious and difficult.
