    People who say stuff like 'Can you borrow me some money?'
    It's 'Lend me' dumb ass.
    Using language like that grinds my gears.

    When people use 'then' instead of 'than', trivial i know but its moronic and i see it everywhere!' When people talk to me and use it wrongly i go along with the 'then' in the proper context, confuses the crap outa some folk!

    Then theres games and demos that load up and cant be minimised and/or fail to load properly so theres no way of getting back to the desktop, the only solution is a reset :mad:

    Yeah...somebody did that on our driveway as well....we got that car towed after an hour...I mean there's enough space for three cars next to each other, but you just can't park in someone's driveway...

    like that?
    I know what you're talking about...makes you want to explore sometimes...
    I usually just shut up and try to set my mind to standby, though...makes 'em happy...

    Oh I know exactly what you're talking about...
    English's not my mother tongue, but I think I am fairly good at it ;) - so people who should be able to speak/write their native language should be able to at least spell words right, right? :bang:
    Same problem: "should of"...

    Well what grinds my gears:
    People who are constantly complaining...I mean all the time (not like in this thread ;) sometimes things just grind your gears...). No matter if it's just sitting in university for an hour and a half and complaining a hundred times how boring it is (fcking get up and leave then!!) or complaining about...I don't know...the looks of people passing by...
    Why can't some people just shut up once in a while? I'm a very calm person and I have my thoughts about stuff as well, but there's no need to voice every little complaint about every little thing...

    things that grind my gears

    1. noise while sleeping or trying to sleep
    2. smelly people or lack of hygiene
    3. men who beat, rape or treat women like objects
    4. people born with a grin such as Tom Cruise who grins 24/7 even in his sleep

    Oh, don't get me started on temperatures. My work room constantly hits 25c these days, and I can't turn off the computer to make it cooler as I use it while studying. I've moved my desk to the window now, but it's windy outside, so papers fly everywhere. I hate hate hate hate this time of year, all because of exams. Blergh.

    can't you just buy a room fan or an air conditioner i mean you must have spent a fortune to cool your hardware yet you're not willing to spend on a simple room fan to cool yourself? if you're too lazy just take 3 120mm fans (6 for maximum benefit) glue them together then wire them and let them cool you off trust me it works or you can invest in one of these ;)

    cooling fan

    I live in Norway, there's no way I'm gonna waste money on an AC :p You're right about the cooling fan though. I have one but it's broken, but if this weather continues, I'm gonna buy a new one!
