    When every romantic line/phase I ever "think" I am being original in saying (to my gf) has already been spoken in some movie or sang in some song prior to me saying it.

    That really grinds me gears!

    I sheared the camshaft in two on my Honda Civic.

    When I ask a patron (I'm a server) "How are you doing?" And they reply. "Iced tea."
    That's a strange way to be doing I think.

    When someone decides that they should take a catchphrase from a popular culture cartoon and make it the basis for a thread for people to whine in.

    That really grinds my gears.

    People who say "my friend and I," even though "my friend and me" is gramatically correct.

    And people who actually like Family Guy.

    Uhm, you do know that depends on the sentence though, if it's grammatically right or wrong?
    In essence, both "my friend and I" and "me and my friend" are right when used correctly.

    when i have an itch on my balls in public that i keep scratching on the sly yet refuses to go away unless i blatently stick my hand down my pants and scratch it, which ultimatly looks as if im jacking off (im not).

    that grinds my gears.

    also people in cars that have more plastic stuck on then the weight of their engine.

    Well, given that the car has over 250K miles on it, I assume it's just showing it's age.

    Also, I drive it like hell.

    Plus one for that! I feel your pain, I really do.

    Probably the most common one i experience nowadays is when at work. I work on a chicken counter, and so cook all sorts of sizes and flavours of chickens. These are all on display, with the label right in front of them so that customers can see what they are and what is in them.

    And then some idiot comes along and asks "Can I have a chicken please?"

    WELL WHICH ****ING ONE?!

    A close second is "What flavour is this chicken?" whilst pointing at a chicken about an inch away from it's label.

    Also had a guy come up to me and ask "What does it mean by half a chicken?"

    I guess you could say people grind my gears -_-

    Things that have an annoying beep to try and get my attention piss me off... like a phone that's going flat. **** off phone. I'll charge you when I feel like it. Stop flashing and beeping and you won't go flat as fast anyway!

    Stupid phones.


    Don't scratch.. pinch skin. Gets rid of any itch and can be done through clothing. Tip of the day folks.

    Humanising machines, I don't need my freaking DVD player to say 'hello' and 'goodbye' when I turn it off and on. What's worse is this greeting b*llocks takes up time which could be better used opening the disc drawer so I can put the DVD in.

    People who talk on the cell phone while paying for something at a store.... or namely a Wine & Spirits shop, since that's where i work. Seriously.... rude as hell. I could see if it's like.... mission critical... possibly lose your job or not kinda talk..... but not talking with your friend/wife/child about what you want for dinner, or just random pointless chatter about crap that NOBODY cares about. Seriously.... pretty sure it can wait a minute till you buy your sh*t and get the hell out.

    And in the same line as Curtimus..... when someone walks up to the register, i say "Hello", and they reply with "Credit" or "Debit". i mean... wtf are we? Amazon.com?

    Is that the official term for it?

    Damn do I hate them.

    This is where girls get it easy. There is nothing physical that would suggest they aroused (at least nothing to be found without a bit of "probing"). They can hide it easily.

    Yeah, I meant that I'm only annoyed when they use it wrong. I guess it annoys me because I feel as if they are going to say "someone and me," but then they change it to "someone and I," even though they may have been right the first time.

    Also, people who refer to game consoles that have been out for over a year as "next-gen" are just plain annoying. Can't believe I forgot that one.
