I hate it when... 1. People refer to 80-plus year olds as "young" men and women. 2. Women hyphenate their last names. 3. Men walk around bare-shirted outside of the gym/beach 4. Smokers congregate, even in designated smoking areas 5. People pretend to understand the ending of "Inception." 6. People lock their dogs in the car and roll up the windows, even when it's cool enough outside. 7. People believe that the deceased are "smiling down" on their loved ones. 8. College and pro football coaches shake hands at the end of games. 9. People pop gum 10. I use the fitting rooms to try on new clothes at the mall 11. My youtube videos start buffering 12. Women try to skip the line at Starbucks and ask the (male) stranger nearest the cashier to order their coffee. 13. I see women driving Hummers and Jeeps and motorcycles 14. Waiters are rude to me 15. Jennifer Lopez tries to endorse low-budget cars 16. Progressive commercials air 17. People laugh at South Park episodes 18. People tell me that they are staunch Republicans or Democrats 19. A woman on an online dating site features 25 photos, all of them with friends. 20. I go to the grocery store and the cashier is a slow talker type. 21. I have to ask for a key to use a public restroom. 22. People are speaking Spanish around me. 23. People who aren't crippled park in handicapped spots 24. People park in the non-parking zone and flash their hazards. 25. People drive below the speed limit 26. Women are talking on theor cell phone in the grocery store. 27. Motorists fail to use their blinkers. 28. I turn on the TV and there's an episode of Cops 29. I think of Casey Anthony signing a book deal 30. I think of people buying Casey Anthony's book 31. People deny that most of today's NFL athletes use steroids 32. Ever I see Lance Armstrong on TV. 33. People seek their parents' approval. 34. Kids are being groomed to become film and rock stars 35. Professional athletes give interviews--so fake!

Dear HPD, I never watch the TV News, I find that I am better off for it, It all seems like brainwashing to me, the way News is presented and the advertising. and I have found in the past having seen advertisments for their pharmacuetical drugs Hilarious when they have to very quickly explain the side effects, which are more numerous than the benifits.      ​        ​        ​       I do quite admire your Individuality as you are quite an unusual character, but somehow feel you have many different sides to you and somewhere you have a heart, which doesn't always show. I enjoy baiting you. as you do us. But truly there is no malice behind it.



Well, They list all of those side-effects because the FCC requires them to do so. Even though all of those drug commercials are exactly the same in content and stupidity, they must be working because they keep on advertising.

Dearest Litenbrite: You're disillusioned. Most people bore very easily with good news. Conflict, drama, violence SElL like hotcakes. Always have and always will. The next time you watch the national broadcast news, pay close attention to the advertising--it's mostly drug pharmaceutical companies--the corporations withe big bucks. They PAY the networks to broadcast doom and gloom because viewers watch it. If the networks decided to do nothing but "good news", they would quickly lose the money from the pharmaceutical companies because many viewers would simply stop watching. I am human and have my likes--but they're special to me only. I could care less if other people like what I like. I'm more interested in people who can accept me for my likes and dislikes. THAT is true "friend."

HPD, No it wouldnt be boring at all, because it would probably be off the wall, and would be so cool to know you as a REAL person, not the antagonist you portray. :))

It would make for a boring read. Why do think television news is 99.9% gloom and doom? If the advertisers knoew that people wanted to hear good news, they'd switch things up in a hearbeat.

HPD You seem to spend a lot of time thinking about what you don't like, What about what you do like,.....there must be something.
