Marc’s How To Column

30 09 2009

Today I am doing a how to column on how to annoy people. This is a fun thing to do and I thought I should read up on it more.

I am going to make a list of the 20 most annoying things that can happen to you or people around you.

20. Saying “Let there be light” every time any light switch is flipped on.

19. Greeting cards that throw sparkles, sequins or confetti on the hapless recipient.

18. The creepers at red lights. You know those people that start inching forward in their cars slowly until the light turns green.

17. People who give their kids weird names.

16. People that don’t list prices on websites, stores, and infomercials.

15. People who overuse quotes from movies or TV.

14. When something I’ve been into for a long time becomes popular.

13. Films censored and cut (for length) to be put on television.

12. Sticky keys on a keyboard that stop you writing fast.

11. How opening any cheap electronic item requires cutting up your finger with cheap impossible to open plastic molding covering.

10. Someone standing over my shoulder reading the computer screen.

9. When you open the DVD case and it is empty or a different movie is in it.

8. Chasing after a ping pong ball.

7. When you genuinely ask someone what’s wrong (when there obviously is something wrong) and they respond half-heartedly, “hmmm? oh nothing…”

6. People that interrupt you when you’re telling a story and then they continue to tell you their story and then ask you in an uninterested tone to continue on with your story when they are finished talking.

5. Cats and dogs that are inconsiderate of their human’s sleeping habits, and decide to romp, play, and destroy stuff at 4 AM.

4. People who read out loud what they’re typing in an email or letter.

3. The noise people make when they rub their fingers on balloons.

2. When you ask someone a simple, straightforward question and they spend ten solid minutes rambling on about everything in the world EXCEPT the answer to your simple, straightforward question.

1. In mini golf when you miss the hole three times in a row less than twenty centimeters away.

 This is the list of the things that annoy me the most. There are a lot more things that annoy me but this is the top twenty that I can remember right now. (There are almost definitely more.)
