There are certain things that drive us all batty. We call them button pushers. What is your number one button pusher? I absolutely hate hearing the phrase "At the end of the day...". One more, just to get this threat rolling, I also hate it when you are talking to somebody and every other thing coming out of their mouth is the phrase "You know what I'm talking about?" These two things get on my nerves worst than somebody dragging finger nails down a chalk board. What's your biggest button pusher?

People like Edthecynic and drsmith1072 who don't have the wherewithal to defend their positions but can only fall back on the ever popular (for them) "you are a liar" defense of their ever so intelligent (in their minds) positions. Of course no one ever really knows what their positions are because the only statements they know how to make is "you are a liar".

A warm place with no memory.
The word "anyway" when it ends with the letter 'S'.

Anyways?

Grammar, spelling, sentence structure, phonics... it's all out the window these days.

Gutter talk, gangster slang, vernacular unbecoming of proper tongue.

Uneducated oral effluent.

Talking heads that say "look" when they want you to "listen."

People who say "ant" instead of "and."

People who write checks in a busy check out line.

I hate people who don't know how to drive, and chew gum with their mouth open.

I can't stand listening to Obama speak. You know what I'm talking about? But at the end of the day, he's just another corrupt politician.

Incompetent employees. I mean, really?

People who never, ever stop to consider how what they do will affect someone else. Shortened term: inconsiderate assholes.

Spiders. Ok, I just really don't like them.

Bad coffee in good restuarants.

Seriously, there's no excuse for it.

The word 'literally' used when the correct word is 'figuratively'.

Standing in line while the clerk takes a phone order rather than yours.

The utter lack of etiquette by cell phone users.

At the end of the day when all is said and done I literally make a figurative mess of looking at what people say while driving (talking on my cell phone in a very load voice) and chewing gum with my mouth open. Anyways, I like my bad coffee in good restaurants and interrupt my friends while arguing with the advice they're giving me as I play with my pet spiders. I drive sideways down the highway at a low rate of speed because, damn it, I pay my taxes and I own the road and of course all my trash goes right out the window. Obama's on the radio with the volume cranked in the shop I work at, purposely taking phone orders while dozens of customers wait in line but given that I don't know how to properly work the register or stock the store most throw their potential purchases on the floor and leave. Of course I never pick the stuff up off the floor, I didn't put it there. Anytime I go to an appointment I double park my car with the kids and pets in it, it's just easier for me and besides, I'm more important than anyone else.
