I went for a quick cheap dinner last night at McDonalds and I get 3 Double-Cheeseburgers all the time with ketchup only.

I don't know if it's only the bright people that work at my McDonalds but I kid you not I got...last night...3 sandwich buns with just chesse and ketchup in them.

But besides this incident, what really grinds my gears is when you ask more only something and they slather it on, or put too little on.

What really grinds your gears...?

When sportscasters are telling a score and they say, "So and so won BY A SCORE of ... "

Of course it's a score. What else would it be, a betting line? Why can't they just say, "So and so beat So and so xx-xx"?

I was watching the SEC Women's basketball tournament last night and I realized that I really really dislike female announcers. I don't know who the lady was, but she kept saying "in the paint." The game was played in Little Rock, Arkansas and there is no paint in the lane. I know, I know... that's nitpicky. I was just looking for some reason to complain.

bad driving, and specifically when the car in front of you goes into a turn lane that you don't plan on getting into. But they don't get all the way in it. They go like half in the turn lane and half out of the turn lane, so instead of speeding right by like you intended to. You have to slow down, there by defeating the entire purpose of even having a turn lane.

Hey, there are some Canadians on the boards and possibly some "Frenchies". So don't put them down! :cursing:

What grinds my gears is people who judge to quicky and racist people.

P.S. For all you Canadians out here :flagcanada:

You know what really grinds my gears?

Where in the bible does it say a guy can't fist out some knuckle children in his neighbors living room while his neighbors at work because I cna't afford a DVD Player? Well I don't know where it says it because the bible is way to long to read.

when relatives come over, and they wanna see what I'm doin online...none of your damn business!
back in high school, there was this guy who always wanted to listen to whatever the hell I was hearin on my CD player. I hate to be mean, but to that guy: get your own, joto! :cursing:
people who don't put their dogs on leashes when they're walkin em. partly due to the fact that me and canines don't mix too well.
girls who wear summer clothes in the winter and then whine about being cold...and by extension, the wankstas who wear heavy parkas in the summer and whine about being hot (well take off the damn parka you halfwit)
that jackass who signaled left but turned right when leaving Target last year, almost running me and another guy over. oddly enough, we both came into the store laughin our asses off :hockeysmiley:
having to shop for anything in December...to say it's hellish is to understate it.
that jackhole who rides down my street every other night bumpin hiz muzik...homes, i'm trynna sleep. the song's probably hot, but i don't wanna hear your bass thumpin at 2 AM. and I definitely don't want your bass wakin me up at 7:30.
People who hide behind religion to wrong others. al-qaeda, hamas, teh KKK, that crazy woman who was "told by God" to kill her children, King Bush...Allah shall strike you down, God told me to wipe out the terrorists...yeesh. I'd just sit back and forget about it.
