One of the threads that was deleted a couple of weeks back.

Let's kickstart things again. Vent your frustrations here.

- People using "gate" after any and every scandal that erupts. So damn annoying.
 
Cat.... They are irritating. I hate it when i goto my uncles house and the cats jump over on the bed! Dog mostly knows their limitations, cats don't!
 
Ultra-religious people who're persistently preachy, judgmental, support violence to promote their religious beliefs(this includes supporting the supposedly noble warriors, the Afghan Taliban) and believe in curbing people's civil liberties in the name of religion (supporters of the Iranian, Saudi, Pakistani state laws regarding drinking, adultery, acceptable attire etc).

That awful smell that's characteristic to Indian food. I had the misfortune of sharing a house with Indians for a month and I would literally have to smoke £20 of marijuana every day to overpower that unbearable smell, air freshener just doesn't work. Doesn't help that they tend to live three to a room so in a house intended for 5 people, you have food for 12 being cooked three times a day.

:)) weed to weed out bad smells. Brilliant.

Desperate times call for desperate measures. Living in a house with 12 Indians crammed into four rooms who're too cheap to get take out and cook all their meals there certainly qualifies as desperate.
 
I think smoking an eight a day corresponds with tanzeels ever so 'strange' posts.
 
Religious mullahs who have no argument and just go on saying stupid stuff.

They would bring in religion in arguments and discussion.

Just like one of the poster who made a thread about critisizing people, right after people start to crtisize his Favourite player Shoaib Malik.

Fully agree with Tanzeel.

Uncle, who migrated to USA 30 years back keep advicing you on what to do and what not to do in western world (Even if you have travelled more countries and seen more cultures than him).
 
People who repeat what you have just said: 'Yeah, and I couldn't see the presentation from all the way back so I got up and went to the front.' Friend's response: 'Oh, so you got up and went to the front?'

People who have sneezes which sound like an elephant's legs are being cut off.

People who spit.

Students who try to suck-up to the Prof in order to get a reference letter/research opportunity in their lab. Do it on your own time man, stop wasting lecture time.
 
Soccer.


I despise that word. Its FOOTBALL.

They call a sport primarily played with hands, and including some wrestling as football :)).
 
psuedo celebrity "reality" tv. i actually wouldnt mind if they got rid of all reality tv and showed a black screen instead.
 
Bollywood and their cheesy use of American phrases, or what they believe are American/Western phrases.

'Let's rock this'

'Looking cool dude'

'Hey man just chill yourself ok'

All said in very fake and desperate sounding American accents.

Here's one for you Bollywood, 'Shut up B!tch!'
 
^^^ one phrase that i always hate to hear in bollywood movies is, Best of Luck.......
 
Genuinely quick bowlers bouncing tailenders who are clearly bunnies.

Brett Lee did this way too much.
 
folks who show off to cover their complex. I am not a fan of fake life style.

materialistic and competitive people .... get together in a group and take turns telling each other what they've accomplished... often times it's just a bunch of lies and fabrications... you know the phrase "lambhi lambhi chor rahay hai"

This is exactly what I am saying. I don't enjoy such company and don't feel any urge to get social with such people.
 
When you fancy a girl and want to be able to chat with her alone but her friends refuse to sod off. Annoying.

Oh, and that juice which has pieces of fruit in it. It totally spoils the experience. I'd cut the fruit myself if I wanted pieces of it. >.<
 
Secularists who think they know the religion of the faithful better than him and ram their opinion/lifestyle down his throat

Hypocrites

Stereotypes

When I waste time like this..

Annoying as hell

Lol how did I miss this
 
the words "swag" and "hater"


Also dislike how people these days add "Like Like Like" to every word they say
 
The hi-fi life styles shown in bollywood, the dresses worn by female leads, the item song girls who randomly appear, the open culture etc etc.

Have seen some posh areas in big cities and none of that stuff happens. The wild Indan fantasy of making India look like USA or Euro country is pretty lame. India is exactly the opposite of what they show in Bollywood stupid movies.
 
People saying lol in real life.
 
When a person murders the person next to them for no apparent reason.

Absolutely hate it when that happens.
 
does that happen for real?

Yes, amongst the younger generation (23 years and younger).

My younger brother does it.

He is no longer considered part of the family.
 
Drivers and cyclists who don't stop for you when you stand on the Zebra crossing.

Or, having stopped for you, drive off when you are half way across, narrowly missing your heels!

i am yet to meet some one who says lol in real life

In this country if there's an animal on the road drivers slow down, if it's a human being they speed up.

People with short tempers. Nothing turns me off more quickly.

Rudeness and disrespect.

These are all excellent.

lol.
 
Building bridges out of bits of paper in corporate team building events. What a colossal waste of time and energy but everyone else seems to love it.
 
Aside from all of the outside world occurrences that I may mention in a few days, I'd like to state one of the most annoying things upon PakPassion is when people are posting using Tapatalk and hence you are not able to acknowledge if they have seen your reply or not. Genuinely irritating for me.
 
I loathe arrogance despite being full of it in real life.
 
Random singing.

People who chew loudly.

not saying salam, hello, hi, thank you, goodbye etc.

Doesn't take long at all.

Also people who didn't give up their seats for elderly people or females in a bus or a tube when there is no space available.
 
Not putting the cap back on the toothpaste.

Not closing the lid of a shampoo bottle.

When you lend your pen to someone and he starts chewing it.

When I return from college and Mum takes a full interview of how the day go etc etc.

Looks like you get peeved off very quickly. You have a bit if daryl in you.
 
Hate smokers. They stinks big time.

Absolutely agree; I loathe smokers (including those who do the 'unharmful' weed) not only because of the harmful effect and repuation of cigarettes/weed but also because of the tremendous extremely unpleasant smell they generate. Disgusting they truly are.

super religious hypocrites who give out to me for not being religious but then go around drinking,smoking and clubbing like its their passion...when i do none of the above.

This is something I can definitely comprehend. I hate individuals who preach religious opinions a consistent basis and aren't inclined to accpeting liberalist ideas but they themselves are prone to ignoring Islamic ideals (such as abstaining from smoking, flirting with women excessively etc).

people who gossip and backbite about other people...its one of the saddest things anybody can do...but it is prevelant amongst the pakistani community...

The complete truth has been spoken above, gossiping/backbiting is rampant within the Pakistani community, even amongst my own family members I dare say. Although it is a trait common with women (no offence), it runs especially rife amongst Pakistani women who also have this annoying habit of discussing so-and-so causing "nazar" or having harmful intentions (essentially committing "**** jadduu"). Hence, it is imperative that I state that one of the most annoying things is having these tribal, out-dated ideas which have never been proved (i.e beliefs which have only been shaped as a consequence of old wives' tales).

People who spit.

Absolutely sickening, and it coincides with the irritating custom of throwing litter on the floor even when a bin is located maybe a few hundred metres away. In addition, the primary aspect of litter which I find most debilitating is the prevalence of dog litter - it's your pet, and you should pick it up and in the process not cause the waste of taxpayers' money and the denegration of environments. I become enraged when I stand on dog/cat faeces by accident, why can't people just pick it up and place it in a bin!?
 
People who criticize you for staring at certain attractions, but then commit the same hypocrisy.

Don't get it. How can you tell of somebody has read your post?
 
People with limp handshakes or fingershakes. ***. Be a man. Get a firm grip handshake and look me in the eye when you're doing it. Ain't that hard.

People with limp hugs. If you're not going to put any effort in, may as well not do it at all.

People with the stupid bluetooth earpiece thinking they're in a movie. Yes. You are in a movie. From the 80s. Idiots.
 
I was in 5th grade when I asked this cute girl out. She said no. I was like okay fine. I didn't wanna impose. I was hurt but I shook it off. The girl then started being as cold as humanly possible and while I was there, she would not even dare to look up. Earlier, I found this ultra shyness of hers cute but then it started to grate. A lot.

That experience helped me in the long run though.

Lol I hate people who hurt your hand when shaking hands . Also it's hilarious to see people's reactions when someone is talking over Bluetooth but they can't see the ear piece .
 
I have only one pet hate (for now) and it is people who live on wellfare when they could either work or other revenue sources that they manage to get away with (husband, owning a house, foreign investments or owned by relatives, children living with parents but having a separate address,...). It is seen a lot in Pakistani community and it is akin to stealing from the poor to me, especially if it's to buy expensive clothes for kids that will grow out of it or eating out every week-end.

Such people give bad name to immigrants, when most of them have a positive influence, render the wellfare sysem flawed because of resentment among other people, take money from more deserving people and, on top of everything, are often religious self righteous people who will hound you for not praying or taking a loan when they are commiting one of the worst crimes possible.

On topic, dangerous animals and unconventional away that don't exist in the ecosystem naturally (in europe): wolfdogs (hybrid vigor makes them worse than wolves), spiders, snakes, even cats. Nourishing pigeons. The one concession I have is falcons. Traditional sport and keeps proliferation of pigeons in control.
 
Posters who use the word "groom" when referring to young players in the team!

By the above I meant that if one selects the User Profile of a particular poster, they are able to see which thread the poster is viewing and is even able to interpret whether they have acknowledged the existence of your new post, because it may state that they are 'Replying to ............... thread'. I understand this is not a foolproof method but at least it provides some insight (to a certain extent).

Understandable suggestion and something which is equally as annoying is posters who post without paragraphing/proper punctuation (the posts are often extremely difficult to read, regardless of the quality they may potentially be).

People who do not accept their mistakes. I just hate it.

This is an excellent post; people who commit the above rile me to an immense extent. Similarly, I am also annoyed by ignorant individuals who rather than listening to what one has to say (even if it is a viable reason), will just reply with a sarcastic "yeah" - in an attempt to say "whatever". My sister performs this act with great regularity, it really gets on my nerves when she just doesn't listen.

When people quote the whole OP here on PP.

Totally agree. Although it is acceptable when it is actually required (if a poster replies directly to the OP and with detail), it is generally uneccessary as I'm sure posters understand what a certain poster is referring to - more irritating when a simple, one-lined post is given.

Liking your own statuses and photos on facebook.

Does that genuinely occur? Surely, people would get lambasted for doing such a thing?

psuedo celebrity "reality" tv. i actually wouldnt mind if they got rid of all reality tv and showed a black screen instead.

Personally, I actually despise the increase in these reality shows, as much I hate the general decline in common knowledge and the thriving nature of interest in celebrity's lives. Why does it actually matter what these nonsense people are doing in their spare time - all they do is swan around thinking their special, with their fake, orange tans and exaggerated American accents. Ludicrous, especially when considering it is these same people who complain about the invasion of their private lives - live quietly, look in the mirror at your materialistic self and shut up!

Yes, I know how you have 20 plus tabs open 'stalking' user profiles etc. :snack:, although I check it as well, as you state it helps in identify which poster has viewed your thread or replying to one in which you might have commented in. As this forum doesn't have the option of being able to see who has viewed the thread, it's justified :moyo

This leads to another point which is a drawback. Sometimes (and it happens quite a lot), you check the user profile and it says 'replying to...' you think the poster who you've quoted is replying to you, and get ready to read the reply, only to see the reply was to another poster. :facepalm: :14:

The moral is don't expect too much and don't view the user profile that much as it's better and doesn't disappoint :46:

Actually, such a feature is available. By selecting the number located under the 'Replies' option and next to each respective thread, one is able to view the posters who have replied to a respective thread. Similarly, towards the bottom of the page is a scroll bar under the sub-heading of 'Forum Jump', where a poster is able to see what every poster present (including guests) on the forum at that particular time is viewing (i.e which particular thread). Muhaha...
