What annoys me is people that do not annunciate properly.

(ie)

1. Saying words that end with the letter "g" by using the letter "n"

Swim-een
Bikeen
Golfeen
Skate-een
Ski-een

People that substitute an incorrect letter in the middle of the word, or people that add an extra letter which does not pertain to the word:

1. Sektember - not September

2. Acrosst - not Across.
What about people who can't spell? They seem pretty uneducated to me.

People who don't use their turn signals annoy me. So do people who don't accelerate when getting on the freeway. Office humor drives me nuts, like when someone asks if it's Friday yet and people genuinely laugh.

I like to walk around the office on Thursday telling everybody that it's mini-Friday.

In August, a political call center moved in next to my (photo) studio. Drumming and loud music are not allowed from 9am to 9pm, 7 days a week. :mad:

I was so annoyed I began looking for a new studio space (a royal PITA).

Then I began my practice sessions at 7am instead of whenever I felt like it. To my continuing surprise, my practices were more productive and focused (pun intended).

But I'm still annoyed.

You got that right! I have type 2 diabetes because I drank so much in the past, but I drink Keystone Ice.....5.9%, and only 7 carbs per 12 ounces! I don't know how they do it!
Light beer has less alcohol! Fills you up, but doesn't "do" it for you! Real men don't drink light beer!

I had type 2.. you can beat it. i went on a zero carb diet and started working out like a madman (cardio..) and got it under control and have never needed meds or anything again... just mentioning it since most people think once you have it you have it forever.

Employees who use their personal cell phones in a customer service setting while oblivious to the customer standing in front of them.

Fired an employee for that once.. ignored a customer cause he was busy texting.. yeah.. bye bye...

P.S. going to a concert for the first time in about 20 years.. but i couldn't pass it up (st paul and the broken bones) so i'm sure i will have a new list of 1000 reasons of why people annoy me :)
 
Nice to see an attempt to make friends with many of our forum members...

PS I live in Louisiana but was born and raised in Massachusetts. I know all about to dialect deviations!

The South comment had nothing to do with the residents and their dialect. It was addressed to the person that said they live in California, and was somehow calling it "The South"

My living was made because of "The South", but it does not mean that its a sin to take up Learnin.

I never called So Cal "the South". We are the "Southwest".

It annoys me that many snare drums are still being sold with those stiff plastic bands attaching the snare wires, when they could use grosgrain ribbon just as cheaply (and it works better).

Folks who use "Porn" in their thread title.
Cymbal Porn
Snare Porn


WTF, do ya'll know what porn is? It's definitely nothing do with drumming or products of drumming, unless you are doing some very weird sh*t. And I'm definitely not gonna look.... now.

I guess it's a way to get your attention or go over the top, like when people over use the word awesome or epic for stuff that's not awesome or epic.

I'm not a prude. I love porn. That stuff is not porn.
I don't understand.

So that's my latest snare thread on the rocks then ;)

It's just a somewhat humorous glib term used to describe something others may secretly lust over - a guilty gear pleasure. Harmless IMO.

I don't feel the least bit guilty over pleasuring myself with gear. :)

Modern use of the word 'Hacks'.

To me a hack is an alternate way of doing or fixing something when you don't have the correct tools available. Like McGuyver.

Most of rdavidr's drum hacks qualify, because he makes O rings out of old heads, or uses ketchup to clean cymbals, etc.

But social media is full of videos of so called 'life hacks' which are either useless craft projects or just advertising for a product. Not a 'hack' and nothing to do with 'life'.
