Irrational Hatred Thread

Post by ElementFreak »

What is something that you have an irrational hatred of?

Personally it's idiots who refer to their pets as "kids", "children" or "fur babies". Now these are mostly women who don't have kids but to me it doesn't make sense. You can't make the choice of not having children and then replacing that experience with animals and expect that they are the same experience.

The Paleo Diet.

Not because of the criticisms of it being unscientific or because of any reaction to crossfitters or other adherents to the diet. Simply because "Paleo" is a silly sounding word and saying "the Paleo diet" is like saying "the ninny ninny bong bong diet'.

I have a hatred of silly sounding things in general actually. There are bands that I simply refuse to ever listen to* based entirely on the fact that their name is silly, twee or just too f'ing tryhard. They could be amazing but I'll never know.

*for instance Death Cab for Cutie. Though I did hear them on the radio once and the singer had an annoying voice so I think I'm all good.

You'd call your pets "furbabies" too if your ovaries were as barren as a supermarket aisle the day before a zombie apocalypse.

For me it's people who don't say thank you when you hold the door open for them. Mainly middle aged women.

We have have some overlap here with your "irrational hatred" I need a Venn Diagram. Plz hold.

I once had an employee who asked for a day off to celebrate her fur child's birthday. Aside from the fact that I'd never heard of anyone taking leave for an actual child's birthday, I must admit I felt sad for her and her lonely existence. Didn't give the leave though, obviously.

People who are fucking inconsiderate and don't look where they're going, take up the entire footpath with their idiot friends/family, or refuse to adjust their strident gait one centimetre for the kind of give and take necessary in a civil society.

It makes me hanker for my rugby days when you had a free licence to run into, but preferably around, people.

That isn't irrational. There is a lot of rationality around that hatred.

My irrational hate is people, who at gigs, decide to go to the bar while the main act is playing meaning I need to concentrate on them going passed instead of the show.

I've started walking into those people who want to walk down the road with their nose in their phone or book. fudge them, they need to realise that 8am in the CBD next to a train station isn't the place to try and walk whilst doing something else.

No, she was a kindly, sad, middle aged spinster and it didn't merit a tongue lashing.

That is irrational alright. It's a rational decision for me to replenish my drinks at a gig. Given that I am considerate, unlike many people (see rant above), I often choose to stand near the bar though.

You'd really hate me then. My boy, a Jack Russel is the child I never had. Even more than that. My wife and I both calls him or child. As we did with his predecessor, a girl Foxterrier who we refer to as my boy's sister who passed at before he was born.

So it's not only women. I do it too. In fact I started it in our home. My wife and I both love kids, but can't have (I don't have lazy swimmers - the buggers can't swim at all. 0% count). Admittedly my current boy as well as his sister before him, we're the first I ever called my kids. I had a couple of dogs I was attached to as much as the two, but that was before I got married, and children, and found out I can't father children of my own.

And if you don't like that, I'll get my child to bite you.

Why would you even bother admitting that? Surely a sane person would call in 'sick' or say they had doctor's appointment for 'lady stuff' (that's always enough to make a man close shop and agree to whatever so long as he doesn't have to hear more). Sounds more like a cry for help. :?



I've been raging a lot against cyclists this week ... and while I'm, myself, cycling! Three cases of rule breakers that didn't cause me harm, but oh did a fiery hatred for them roll within my soul....

1. Two of us parked in tandem at a red light, off to the side so as not to block cars. Young, helmetless (I would be if it wasn't the law here) punk on a mountain bike slides up beside us. First guy takes off, he slides in front of me and procedes to go slower. I 'tail-gate' him for a few hundred metres to let him know I'm faster. Almost got my first taste of cyclist schadenfreude as the door of an SUV pops open right beside him, but the driver noticed and pulled it back within 5 cm of him getting hit.

2. Coming through the naval base there's a point where the road narrows because of construction and the flag man waves through a rather large pick-up truck and I slow down to tuck in behind. Just as the truck's about to enter a point of 'no quarter' where a chain-link fence runs alongside the road with nothing but inches to spare between in and said truck, a rather fat sailor on a road bike flies past me on the right and in between fence and truck without even looking. I actually said "What a dick!" but I think it was muffled due to all the construction. I wished that a senior officer was in that truck, to chew his ass out later, but they tend not to have such boss vehicles like that... ffs, I saw a Lt Commander riding a shitty moped today. Shook my head in shame.

3. This morning, just pulling away from a red light I see a shadow of a cyclist on my right again and - again - with a construction site on the right. This time it's the opposite of fat male sailor - reasonably hot woman in lyrca on a very expensive bike. Barely checks as she cuts in front of me, swerves onto the roadway to then pass the guy in front of me. I was hoping to catch up and burn past her on the hill coming up but she flew through the amber light at the base of it while I hit the brakes like the rule-abiding sap that I am. For the final 15 mins to work and the 25 home from work I kept thinking that I should have done my classic pinch-one-nostril nose clear into the direction of the shadow as soon as I saw it.

Fcuking cyclists! No wonder drivers hate the twunts!


(Me, I'm a friggin saint ... well, most of the time ... )

I have absolutely no concerns with me refilling my drink during the sets of bands I am not that interested in, but if the band I do like is on, then everyone needs to stay where they are. Plums.

Love it. Don't listen to the haters with kids - they're poor and are operating on 3 hours sleep.

Idiots and politicians. But then I'm repeating myself (to counter-phase Mark Twain). Also include lawyers in this category.

Snobbish people.
I don't even look down on hobos - in fact more often than not, I'd admire them (despite feeling sorry for those with addictions, more so those who became hobos BECAUSE of addiction).

People in restaurants, with a friend/s, partner, spouse or family,... and is then on their phone the whole time. Teenagers are especially bad - going out as a group of friends they like to hang out with, and then sit there and text the ones they didn't want to be with throughout the mail :x

Kids of today :x But only the 2-legged variety.

Why didn't you just let her take the day off and use a day from her annual leave?
Whether the reason was ridiculous or not, you said she was a kindly lady yet you said she couldn't take a day off. If she said she was going to visit her relatives, would you have done the same thing?

Nah, some people are just too fucking stupid and obtuse to notice


Mine is people at a reasonably decent restaurant who talk with a ridiculously loud voice. We had one such experience recently, one bloke and 3 noisy women (ugly ones too) who maintained the same overwhelmingly loud conversation for over an hour.
My wife got us to leave before we had finished our food as she realised I had reached the stage where I would willingly have buried a fork in the loud plum's skull and bugger the consequences.
