Well, how fat is fat?

I tend to not be in a hurry in the grocery store. So, rather than just slow-moving people, the folks I REALLY get irritated with are the ones who make abrupt stops, or maneuvers that either result in me being hit, bumped, or blocked.




You've just highlighted one of my pet hates, people who walk around so oblivious to their surroundings and other people, they often stop dead in the middle of a store aisle and then give you dirty looks when YOU bump into THEM !
You almost expect them to say "Hey ! why don't you watch where I'M going ?"
I recently watched the original version of Dawn of the Dead and began to wonder if it was a horror film or a documentary about the majority of customers who frequent my local mall !

1. MY writer's block (not the writer's block of my competitors )
2. People who live their lives based on the music they listen to (especially the so-called "Hip Hop culture").
3. Collectivism

2.The whole hip-hop thing I can't stand it,it killed mtv,it makes people pretend to be what their not.I also can't stand people in their cars pumping their hip-hop music.
3.ignorant people that can never get a clue.I encounter this all the time wether it's asking someone a question or their opinion on something I can never get a straight answer

Ok.

All the things I should have said that I never said.

All the things I should have done that I never did.

All the things I should have given that I never gave.

This stupid song I can't get out of my head. Thank you Kate Bush. Oops I ran out of options.

Happy?

1 - The "singer" James Blunt (his name is now rhyming slang for...well I think thats obvious).
2 - Celebrity chef's - "I can cook a meal using fresh ingredients bow before me in awe and supplication mortal".
3 - Tom Cruise - uber idiot manchild, if a hollywood studio gives you the push for acting like a dick then truly you are a dick amongst men.

I want a bigger Room 101. 3 things to banish just isn't enough.

Blunt annoys me like nothing else, his voice grates on me nerves and makes me feel sick.
Cruise is the biggest moron to grace the celebrity pages. He is a wanker right down to the core, I can't stand the sight of him.

I don’t know if the original poster of this thread intended it to be a survey on this very phenomenon. But I have noticed that most people want to use the “room” to banish things that are completely avoidable and will bother them only if they WANT to bother by them.

I see people select annoying actors, singers, music styles, etc… to be locked forever in the mythical room.

Most of the people/things mentioned are such I have never heard about at all (perhaps because I watch little TV) Why should anyone be so disturbed by some piece of pop (poop?) culture than they want it to disappear, when it is perfectly easy to obtain the same results by simply keeping away from it?

You detest some singer? Don’t listen to him!
You hate some actor? Don’t watch his movies/interviews!
You loathe some kind of TV/Radio show? Turn off the receiver!

I agree 3 items of hatred just isn't enough.

If I was ever to appear on the Room 101 tv program they would have to turn it into a 24 hour charity telethon.

It isn't always so easy to refrain from seeing or hearing pop-culture gremlins. For example, I have a hard time shopping for groceries while staying at home.

Indeed.

I've managed to control my environment to an impressive degree, and I'd like to do it even better in the future. TiVo and XM, anyone?

But, yeah, I do choose to and have to go to various public places and deal with noise and annoyance. What's more, sometimes, I do like to watch a little TV or listen to the radio, because I like a little random, unexpected spontaneity.

Mostly, my third entry was a joke. If I had a real opportunity to banish something for all eternity, I wouldn't waste it on a song that's going to be gone in six months anyway .
