Thread: What grinds my gears...

  1. #51
    People who don't pay attention in life. They are distracted by the things that don't matter and miss the things that really do.

    Which brings up a specific gear grinder for me - people who post questions on forums when it's obvious they haven't tried to find the answer themselves first. Research does not mean asking others to do the work for you, people...

    I don't know how I would survive in a supermarket for fifteen years. I can't even stand shopping in one for five minutes because no one knows how to maneuver their carts.

    DING

    That's another thing that bothers me. I only use baskets because I will knock someone over with my cart if I used one.

    Or people who ask questions on Facebook instead of Google.

    Oh man... when people cobble science together in with their wacked out perspectives, especially antiquated science like "nature vs. nuture" or equate pseudoscience like astrology or homeopathy as being real science. In order to correct the person, you have to wade through a string of non-sequitur ideas based on emotions and rarely thought out. Half the time you just want to shake them until their gears start lining up.

    You have so much negative energy built up, Guy. I know you don't believe in it, but your chakras are probably being blocked by an external force, which is probably causing you to feel unfulfilled and unbalanced. Buy some incense from your local health shop -- preferably Sandalwood, in your case -- and tell them Margarita sent you. You may laugh, but it is science; it's science of the soul -- the only kind you need.

    Good luck, and keep that Yin and Yang in check, you hear?

    People that ask for prayers on Facebook over every piddly problem. Quit whining and help yourself.

    I shouldn't be laughing..sighhhh...This young girl asked for prayer because she had not studied for a test. [She hated her Teacher]...
    She lost herself in the trees,
    among the ever-changing leaves.
    She wept beneath the wild sky
    as stars told stories of ancient times.
    The flowers grew toward her light,
    the river called her name at night.
    She could not live an ordinary life,
    with the mysteries of the universe
    hidden in her eyes....

    love leaves a memory no one can steal....
