The Annual Festivus Airing of Grievances

Today is Festivus. Part of the joy of Festivus is the Airing of Grievances. I did my airing today one grievance at a time on Twitter, but it seemed like a good idea to record them here. Maybe next year I’ll be able to avoid some of these.

So here are the things that cause me or have caused me grief, as seen on Twitter:
  • People who will wait 10 minutes in the Taco Bell drive-through but complain about the cost of gas.
  • “Unnecessary” “quotation” “marks”
  • People who misuse comprise to try to sound smarter.
  • Tandem mountain bikes
  • I blame John McCain for Sarah Palin.
  • Movies made from 1980s TV shows
  • People who use SMS shorthand when they’re bloody speaking
  • No one recognizes my genius except my mother
  • Justin Bieber will make more money this year than I’ve made in the last 36.
  • People born into wealthy families who wrote books about how to become rich.
  • @BrnzBarbie wrote: People that think “conversate” is a real word annoy me. To which I added And “orientate.”
  • When people say “people that” instead of “people who”
  • It’s almost 2011! Weren’t we promised flying cars by now? Where are the flying cars?!
  • Still haven’t gotten my birthday presents from Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Jobs, and Bill Gates.
  • Indiana went back to being a red state.
  • Stupid gravity made my grandma fall down.
  • Still haven’t finished my naNoWrimo novel.
  • That beautiful woman would rather stay married to her handsome, rich, stupid husband than go out with me.
