2nd, weight loss machines....all of them.

3rd, the child safety tab on disposable lighters. The only people that thing confounds is the poor sap who's downed a few brewski's and can't get his smoke lit because the sweat from the bottle is making his thumb slippery and it won't allow him to put enough pressure on the stupid little $^#$&*%* tab to light the #$&Y*^$* lighter! :-°


You never learned how to remove those things? Ouch.

I've got Abercrombie & Fitch gear. !+)

I don't get the music thing... I never thought I'd have to shout over the in-store music at the mall 'till I went there. 'Tis very annoying, methinks. Same goes for those who pop the collar. That's just dumb lookin'.

...but they've still got some good stuff there. My favorite sweat-shirt is from A&F. It's comfy. :-D

Anyway, yeah - most of the ride-pimipin' gear annoys me. I think I'm one of the few 20-and-under people who don't get it. When I sold my 'ol beat-up car and upgraded to a nicer one, a lot of people told me I needed to lower it, get some cool rims, get the neon underglow, etc., etc. Eh.

I really hate it when people "pimp" their old cars. One of my buds spent more money "upgrading" his car than the actual car itself.

...let's see... that Code Red drink that Pepsi makes. Ew.

I also don't like dig the velcro adjustable-hats. Just don't.

There's probably a lot more products I don't dig. I'm easily annoyed by annoying things.

The whole "Gothic" ideal. Not really a product, but its so stupid. "Hey everyone look at me! Im different!" I freaking hate those people.

Not sure how much of this you guys get, but around here a lot of people "Rice out" their cars. A touch racist, but what else can I call it. Its almost like pimping your ride, but it usually involves a Mitsubishi or Civic with a big spoiler and graphics on the side. This makes me incredibley angry.

The Bowflex. It's nothing more than a place to hang your clothes. The ads are some of the most annoying trash I've ever seen, too. They get these ripped up guys to do the ads, guys who didn't get the way they are by using a Bowflex. Then the ads try to make the potential buyer believe that the machine will turn them into supermodels.

Or even better, when a pound of something (flour, whatever) costs 20 cents less than a half pound. Maybe I just don't understand basic economics, but I've never been able to figure that out... :-?
