People Who Can’t Read

You know what grinds my gears? It’s people that can’t read.

Actually I should rephrase that – it’s people that refuse to read.

I’m a fairly technical person. I run a small IT help-desk site. I work for a company doing IT support. I am IT support for my friends and family. I try to make things as easy as possible for people – almost all of the directions are clearly laid out with pictures and small words. Unfortunately, too many people refuse to read and cause me to want to rip out my hair.

I sent an email to one of my coworkers telling him to install a program so we can work together on a shared server screen. The next day, plus 5 hours, I ask him if he’s installed it yet. Guess what? A BIG FUCKING NO. LOL. Bitch.

I like to skim over material as much as the next person, but if I have steps 1 through 3 written down for you to accomplish, and you only do step 1 and 3… guess what? You’re now a “fucktard.”

And that’s what grinds my gears.


People Who Can’t Flush

You know what grinds my gears? It’s people who can’t flush a toilet.


Being a guy, this is completely a guy’s perspective – so if you have any qualms keep that in mind. The men’s room is a dirty place. Guys pee. Everywhere. We rarely clean up. It’s gross.


There is the mentality of “if it’s already dirty, why should I make [i]any[/i] effort in maintaining a clean standard?” Well, perhaps it’s because you need to lead by example.


I went to the men’s room today and there was someone talking on their cell phone in a toilet stall. I won’t even go into how absurd it is to talk on the phone while in the bathroom, but this guy did the following:

Pissed in the toilet
Walked to the sink
Ran the water over his hands for 3 seconds with no soap
Opened the door to the bathroom with his wet hand

Am I the only one disgusted by that? Flush the God-Damned toilet!

And that’s what grinds my gears.
