7/28 - Throw'em the Heater

It's Friday and that means its time to hear from you. Let me know what you hate (and as always, I'm accepting bribes).

Last week's winner: Rev. Steve
(as a reminder, please post your own hate in addition to any commentary you might have about Steve's)

Without further ado, Steve's hate:
Why are there still people in this world who pay at the checkout line of a drug store or supermarket by writing a check right then and there?

I would expect this behavior out of old people who are 80 years old or older. But in both cases, these people looked to me to be in their 30's (and both looked like dorks in my mind).

With the advent of debit cards, no one should ever write a check in a checkout line again. It's not like a debit card is hard to get anymore. Checks should be reserved for bill payment through the mail or payroll checks or payment of contractors. There ought to be a law about using them to buy groceries.

I was especially mad in one case where a manager had to be called over. And there wasn't another line I could get in.

I'm thinking these peope still use passbooks at the bank. Does anyone use a passbook anymore?

People who write checks at a supermarket who are young enough to know better... I hate you"

Rev. Steve--You so get it with the check writing! What is with that when the youngins do that? Oh right, dorks.

As for my hate: I walk all over my city--on the sidewalks, in the crosswalks, with the light. Sense the pattern here--I walk to the rule! And everyday, I am almost killed by crazy bicyclists who zip along the sidewalks and almost mow me down, crazy aggressive drivers who think nudging me with their bumper while I am in the crosswalk will make me get out of their way faster, and other idiots driving a vehicle who think I am delaying them by 14 seconds as I make my way home on foot. People who should leave their wheels at home and walk more to know what it feels like to have their kind almost run them over: I hate you.

We were all set, made it to the airport on time, got thru security and actually found a seat in the terminal. That's where everything went down hill. We start boarding the plane to Hawaii and I notice that there are people with INFANTS boarding the plane. Oh you guessed it, the infant was seated one row to the right of us. LOVELY. I'd say 8 hrs out of the 8 1/2 hrs the baby cried. These parents didn't have ANYTHING for the kid... they just let the baby scream. SERIOUSLY. And, why do you get up and walk around and let everyone on the plane enjoy the screaming?
During the trip, we had ONE meal that was kid free. If I could pick lottery numbers....
It gets better, on the flight back-- We had THREE infants and one toddler. Why on earth do people travel with infants on a 9 hr flight? Are you insane? All of the babies cried and two parents should be in police custody for overdosing their children with too much Benadryl. Needless to say, we didn't get any sleep.

Stupid parents that travel with infants and toddlers, I hate you.

Congrats Rev. and that would piss me the hell off. My sis is prone to doing that and we're young...onto the hate.

I'm a divorced mom with an 11 year-old. Have a great job, salary, apt. the works. In sum, I am self-reliant. I by no means have money laying around say like, a rap star. My destitute ex-hub who is a great dad is a step away from eating garbage (i.e., he gets worker's comp). I get a call from him -- usually very lengthy which is a clear indicator I'm gonna get asked for a favor, asking for money. My money, which I worked hard for. I hang up and am left with guilt.

People Who Live Off the Fat of the Land and Guilt poor Jane's like me:


Oh, btw, TGIF.

I'm just glad I won a week.

My hate this week... how about neighbors in an apartment building who let their cat live in our common stairwell, don't fix the cat at all, and let it run outside our apartment building in the woods picking up god knows what, then let it back into the stairwell so it can howl outisde our door at night and piss in the stairs?

They even keep a feeder in the stairwell for the cat. Apparently the cat doesn't want to come inside the apartment.

Well, it ain't supposed to live in the stairs either.

Trashy neighbors... I hate you!

People who get paid on Monday might write a check today knowing that it'll be good by the time it hits the bank.

No haters, I don't do it - I use my check card.

i hate moving. dont get me wrong, i love the travel, the change, the new settings, the fresh start. but i hate all the hoops you have to jump through to detach yourself from your current and soon to be former abode. title transfers. 401k rollovers. closing of bank accounts. packing. moving shit around 20 times. giving proper notice to all concerned parties. knowing that no matter how much you plan and no matter what you do that on the day of the move, and for at least a month thereafter there is going to be mad shit that you forgot to do/pack/throw out, etc. fuckin hell!

period of time leading up to moving: i hate you.

people who live in apartments with 2 or more kids, who never take them outside, who always sound like they are going to come through the roof because they are playing basketball on the linoleum kitchen floor, who wake you up every day of the week. Who when you knock on their door say, "my kids aren't making any noise." That is, when they are actually home with their children.
Irresponsible breeders: I HATE YOU!

my hate today is dedicated to the roads which we drive on. actually, its mostly old people and maybe women. while men drive far too aggressively and on people's asses.. i wanna drop some hate on the people that stop 4 car lengths back at a light. yeah, you know what im talking about.. you gauge the stopping distance as you come up to a light, yet you have to lock em up cause some retarded asian lady slams em on as if she's on someone's bumper. listen biznitch, youre 40 feet back.. i think youre safe. old people do this too. theyre notorious for it. obviously this is cause they cant see (which is a whole 'nother Hate).. but people and their stupidity whilst driving..

i hate you.
