The way my boyfriend leaves dairy-based butter particles in the spreads we both use (like the peanut butter). I don't know if I have the energy to be so anal as to have my own designated peanut butter to avoid this. Maybe I should try suggesting a little louder that he just use my soya spread. But then I'd have to deal with an excess of toast crumbs and/or jam and peanut butter particles in the soya spread, whereas at least with my having my own spread now I can keep toast crumbs down to a minimum and I never use soya spread AND peanut butter (I don't think both are required) so the peanut butter never finds its way into the soya spread.

 

Also the way when he eats something and for some (imagined?) reason there's something "wrong" with it (texture of that particular mouthful is weird or tastes strange suddenly) he spits it out. Yeah. And I can't help getting offended, usually coz I've cooked the food. I find this very juvenile. If I ate a mouthful of something which I didn't like (suddenly, even though I'd been eating one forkful after another for the past five minutes) I'd just swallow it. Like an adult. You don't spit out food unless it's rotten. Sigh.

After pointing out that humans are animals, they claim that humans are a special type of animal, as if wearing clothes or using technology that was made by a small group of other humans and conditioned on to us makes every human on Earth equal to the individuals who made the thing they only use!

OH NO THEY DIDN'T!!!

 

Talk about rudeness in college life. 

 

I'm halfway done my laundry and I got back to move my clothes from the washer to the dryer and I find that someone had MOVED my laundry from the washer and into a dryer while they had their own stuff in that washer and had set it to cycle. @[email protected] Talk about f*cking rude. I just stood there for a minute like D=< . I couldn't even think straight as I started the dryer. I felt so disrespected and violated. I understand I was a bit late upon switching my clothes to the dryer, but it is in NO WAY acceptable to move anyone's clothes (I was even more offended because I had a ton of undergarments in that load) There have been times when I had to wait for an open washer for awhile even though some people's wash cycle was done, and yes,  it was annoying as some peoples' clothes hadn't moved even after an hour, but I knew that did not give me the right to move their clothes. I could wait or I could use the washers down in the other hall.  There are days when ALL the washers and dryers are open, so maybe people should be a bit more efficient and try to do their laundry during those days as well.

 

 I had to vent to my roomate and she told me she had something even worse happen to her. Someone took her clothes out of the dryer once and actually put them on top of the dryer where she could barely reach. She also told me how one of her friends saw someone put her clothes onto the floor.

 

It's just RUDE. Don't do it, or I may as well do it to you, though I won't because I don't believe the eye for an eye thing fixes anything. I was so offended that I wrote the politest sticky note I could saying "It is not appropriate to move someone's clothes. There are washers in the next hall over. Thank you." and stuck it to the washer they took over. I'm not just going to take that from people without a word. No one else should either. People will walk over you if you let them, and if you don't make a point with them, they will do the same to others.

I have to disagree with you about the washer/dryer thing. If there are no machines left, and someone is late coming to move their stuff out of a machine, then it's normal to move their stuff out of the way. I always give them time after their clothes are done in the machine to show up, but if they're more than half an hour late, then I'll move their stuff out.

Of course, I always make sure to put their stuff in a dryer (if it's coming from a washer) or on a clean countertop (if it's already dry). Putting it on the floor or where they might have trouble reaching it is pretty bad.

But insisting that nobody else can move your clothes when you're late coming to get them is like saying "I'm too lazy to finish doing my laundry, so nobody else is allowed to do theirs".

Lol, the washer/dryer saga. I've experienced this too and I have moved someone's washing once because I waited HOURS for them to come back to the laundry room and free the machine and they just never came. I kept coming back down from my flat to the communal laundry room and every time their laundry was just sitting there idle, festering in the machine, pointlessly.

 

Of course if there was an alternative machine to use, even a little distance away, I would rather have used that than touch someone else's wet knickers. Yigh.

People who refuse to park in the designated white lines in parking lots. I have never witnessed such consistent blatant disregard for common sense and decency with regards to parking as I have since living in Ireland. Maybe it's an Irish thing.

 

So what happens is some ass monkey parks over the white lines in a parking space thus rendering the parking space into which s/he has half parked unusable. This is very annoying when there is no parking and someone has used up two spaces for their one car.

 

What's even more befuddling (I find anyway) is the way people are incapable of parking in the white lines in an empty parking lot too. Like, no other cars, just that one car, straddled over two spaces. Why?! Why not just park in the lines. Nothing was obstructing you from doing it. Sheer laziness.

I hate it when people walk slow on purpose when they see a car coming. Same thing with kids playing in the street. In the grocery store when you politely ask someone to let you by especially after they have been staring at the same can of corn for minutes on end and they ignore you. I have had this happen a lot. Old people that think they still have the ability to drive and clearly don't since I have had so many times that their old asses have almost hit me. Also in my hick neighborhood there are a bunch of people that ride their 4 wheelers down the railroad tracks and around the power lines. They also ride the things down the streets. WTF. Not neighborhood streets, actual roads. Illegal and dangerous for them and the drivers.

I didn't know moving someone's clothes was considered so offensive. Is it a germs thing?

Guilty!

    I kind of have a grudge against cars in general, being a cyclist. I only really do that if I'm crossing the road and the motorist revs/speeds up to try and intimidate. Then I like to slow down.

Yep, like that saying goes, don't judge another man until you've walked a mile in their moccasins, similarly, don't judge a cyclist until you've cycled three miles on their bike. I used to find cyclists annoying, but then I cycled to work/wherever for a year and a half, and now I fully appreciate the inconsiderateness of motorists. So when I drive now I'm really nice to cyclists. I don't even really begrudge the group sports cyclists who rove around in gangs, blatantly taking up the whole lane, forcing everyone to go round them. Drivers kind of deserve that kind of disregard themselves from time to time...

That could give you some serious food poisoning. If he's leaving butter in the PB, if it sits, it can grow mold. That's why it's so important to use separate knives for everything and not double dipping. Vegan or not.

I never considered that. I double dip between the peanut butter and the jelly with the same knife all the time.

I'm more concerned about the jelly getting with the PB, especially if you don't refrigerate the PB.

Yuck, that's disgusting. I'll tell him about that, because he has an epic fear of mould since he saw some documentary where a guy inhaled blue mould from bread and it supposedly ate away at his face (I think this sounds like nonsense, but he believes it, so...). Mind you, the peanut butter never lasts long in our house anyway, so the butter wouldn't get much chance to go mouldy coz the peanut butter is consumed in a week usually.

I agree with Fromper here.

 

I used to live in student accommodation with about 200 people and only 3 washers and 3 dryers. I found it very inconsiderate to leave washing in the machines when there was clearly gonna be someone waiting for it pretty much. 

 

I definitely don't agree with putting it somewhere dirty or inappropriate though.

So do they give up all meat (other than fish) for the entire time period, or only on Fridays? I've heard of meat free Fridays, but I wasn't sure what the deal was. Not being Catholic, I've never figured out what all their traditions are.

Actually, I was surprised when I saw someone with the ash on their forehead on the way to work today. I didn't remember that Ash Wednesday was coming up until it's here. Nor do I really know what it means. Of course, if I cared, I'd look it up on Wikipedia or something.

They just give it up on Fridays. And ash wendsday of course. They don't have to give up meat but that's a common thing for people to give up.

Second gripe of the day: I was looking at my news feed on Facebook and randomly a guy that used to work at my place of work, whom I thought was a really nice down to earth accepting guy, randomly posted "I hate hippies and animals are delicious"
He wasn't saying it to me but I really just want to go on his wall and be like wtf. My opinion of him has completely changed now.

When i was a youngster we used to get food from the schwan man ( its like a food delivery service and they drive big yellow trucks) and it brings back memories from my childhod, so i was thinking about ordering stuff from them. They dont have one vegetarian dish. They sell crabcakes for godsakes but no vegetarian entrees. Wth
