Biggest pet peeves...

Recommended Posts

Keep it civil since the last thread died because pissing contests tend to arise;

 

-People who dislike when a defender doesn't pick any kind of blasts from the secondary power pool. This isn't WoW or Final Fantasy, healers/supports don't do insane amounts of dmg; either through raw output or DoT. Also, the game isn't even close to hard in general, compared to other MMO"s its a playground...made of sand. We have 9 other dmg dealing classes in the game, my dmg means nothing, also you know...play how I want so long as debuff/buffs/heals are coming in.

 

-Delusional IO set users, yes I also have a billion inf, I also park the enhancement ego, and realize that I'm only as strong as my wallet.  Saying general statements like "I tank Recluse easy" without mentioning your 1.5 billion inf toon is false advertising son. Your IO's tank Recluse easy, you just happen to press a few buttons.

Those little sticks that get put through sandwiches. You have to pull them out to eat the sandwich causing it to fall apart. What's the point other than presentation?

People. People really annoy me. What's the point of them, other than to amuse me and to provide garbage cans for my family to knock over?

Cold soggy donuts.

People on MY road in MY lane going below the speed limit when there are 4 other roads of varying speeds going the same place.  Pick your speed, get on that road, get outta my way.

Seeing the word "skyrocketing" in news and opinion pieces just drives me up a wall.

 

It's less common now, but a few years ago you couldn't read an article anywhere without that word showing up. It was like some sort of collective mind-virus had infected the entire journalistic community, demanding that "skyrocketing" show up AT LEAST once per article, no matter what the subject. Once I noticed the trend, it became impossible to NOT see.

 

It still makes me grumpy.

Don't get me started on how things went from being "tips" to "life hacks".  There's no life that has changed that much from one.

People who start threads to complain about other people, in a game community designed to be inclusive, are my biggest pet peeve.

Thankfully my thread is about pet peeves, and not directly people....cool right?

"irregardless" is now officially a word.

Its been a word for 100+ years...it just never caught on. Used to bother me, till I realize; Sprinklered, Specificity, and planification are words.

People who cannot spell the word Rouge correctly when referencing a thief-like/scoundrel character. I could care less about you're makeup, irregardless of how it may appear.

People who drag real-world politics or religion into a video game.  Seriously, shut the fuck up and let people have fun.  We've got real life for that shit.

This happens a lot, where a word or phrase seems to show up out of nowhere, is suddenly everywhere at once, and just as suddenly disappears.  

 

The nonsensical phrase "it is what it is" was like this, and in business, there was a dreadful period where everyone wanted to "delight (their) customers" and so on. 

 

I can't confirm it, but my theory is that these temporary vernacular blips spring up from trade shows/conventions, like, a keynote speaker uses it on a slide or something and all of the sudden it implants itself into the soft brains of the audience, only to wriggle out and plop down on the main conference room table back at work.

This is happens in corporations with great regularity; Marketing being possibly the worst offender? I could name off many examples, but this might sum it up best:

 

 

I'm always stunned that people can speak this gibberish with sincerity like it actually means something…

When my sister and I went to college, 'big ol' entered our vernacular as a description of size and drove my mom crazy.  When my kids were in elementary or junior high, 'what had happened was' became the way to describe events.  I still use it to drive the kids (grown) nuts 😀

That's at least two Weird Al drops in 3 pages.  Not bad!
