I hate s'mores.

You would not believe how many people freak out over this.

Never had that happen.

I like S'mores, but yes they are way overrated and people freak about them.

I am weird. In addition to candy corn, I also love Smarties.

AND black licorice.

My ex-wife got me some licorice from Iceland and it was AMAZING! SO FREAKING STRONG FLAVOR!

I dislike black licorice, but I love me some Ouzo.

Now Drambuie is disgusting, but my Gran cant get enough...


Drambie (honey + scotch) is great in a drink called a Rusty Nail (Drambuie + scotch over ice). I'm just telling you this so that I can point out that the solution to your problem is more scotch.

I'll remember that next time I visit my Gran. She makes some tea and then pours a shot from the bottle. Its like drinking Vick's cough syrup. Now if it had NyQuil's green death flavor...

I don't eat turkey (I used to help my dad with the butchering).

People also freak out about this.


I dont have a mobile phone, smart or otherwise, and people lose their damn minds when they find out.

I used to work with someone who refused to accept that reality about me. She would text my landline and then get really, REALLY angry that I didn’t respond. Like it was my fault. This general blaming of reality for failing her was, it turned out, a prominent character trait. Glad I don’t work there any more.

lol. In my early 20's during college, I decided that having internet was more important than having a phone. I instructed my family that they could email me whenever they wanted to get a hold of me. I would find a phone when I needed it to call. They hated it.

Now, when I call them they are like "WTF did you call me for? Why u no text?"

1/2 shot of Drambuie, full shot of scotch (usually a blander "mixing" scotch -- I use Cutty Sark), stirred on the rocks

That's not weird at all. That's a perfectly logical annoyance.

I went to look for it and couldn't find it, so I guess the mods beat me to it.

I can't stand s'mores.

I'mma be honest - I'm not discerning when it comes to sweets. If it has sugar and/or high fructose corn syrup in it, I'll eat and enjoy it.

If you could buy s'mores premade... You wouldn't.

They're just fun to cook. By a campfire I'll say 20 raw marshmallows to keep myself fueled while cooking a couple s'mores.

MageHunter gets it! It might just be my childhood nostalgia speaking, or my pyromania, but s'mores hold a special place in my heart and stomach.

When you tell your brother and his wife "Oh sure, our daughter would love to babysit your kids" and they immediately conflate that into watching their kids overnight so they can go out binge drinking.

A) since when did babysitting turn into an overnight, watching kids overnight is way more intensive and difficult then watching them for a few hours while you go out to dinner or a movie.

I dont have kids but I think I would differentiate a few hours from a sleepover...

This isn't really weird but its a big pet peeve: when someone says or does something really cruel and then says the victim should just "toughen up" or some other thing to blame them. Such people are scum in my book.

I appreciate the rebuttal of people who say "Life's not fair" and tell people to get used to it. When they say it isn't fair, tell them "Then MAKE it fair!"

Same. Though I might be irrationally bitter about it due to a similar conversation from my childhood where my response protesting the lack of fairness just got me more abuse and more berating for daring to suggest the system could be made better. -_-

I think I remember the phrase "that sounds like Commie talk" or something similar being involved.

You should hear my son go off on a tirade of Commie talk. He hates the current system.

I don't think it's irrationally bitter - personal experience shapes us, and it'd be kind of weird if it didn't.

People who preface asking a question with the word "Question."

Or someone greeting me with "Havin' fun yet?" no matter what my day is like. I just want to grind their bones and make my bread.

I say "Have fun!" as a parting, I can't help myself.

Crookshanks always hated it when family would ask her "Do you like having a younger brother?" after Tiny T-Rex was born.

It was then she asked us "Do I have to answer stupid questions?" on the way to the Christmas party "Of course not" we told her.

The last holiday season I worked at a former job, I kept getting asked this by the same person every f!cking day I'd bump into him. The last time he asked me, I said "Not yet, the knives are all still in the car." I musta smiled a little too convincingly or had a gleam in my eye or the burn-out was starting to bleed through, because about a half-hour later the head of HR popped by my cubicle to walk me into the stairwell for a brief chat.

HR: "Yes, I can see how getting asked that repeatedly would be irritating. Yes, we all know you weren't serious. But you still can't say that."

I'm awkward situations I'll probably say the following: "Have fun! Or Good Luck... Normally one or the other I suppose."

Probably when they are about to see the dentist or something.

What if they say "I have a question for you," before they ask the question?

So does my best friend. Has as long as I can remember. That doesn't bother me at all. It's when it's used to open a conversation.

People who ask how you're doing when they're fishing for "fine/great."

Don't ask me how I'm doing unless you want to know.

When people ask me how I'm doing but then just flat-out don't answer me when I say, "<Answer> thanks, how about you?"

I can spot exactly when I'm in a conversation and my brothers stop listening to me and begin working on their next monologue in their head for when I'm done speaking.

People who ask your opinion about something and then get mad when you answer in a way they disagree with.

So you didn't really want my opinion. You wanted me to validate yours.

I feel like I would be A) smarter and / or B) fatter, if I went to a school that handed out candy for good performance...

Oh yeah, every day at work, someone who is walking by me at full pace says, "How are you doing?" and keeps going.

There are plenty of visual cues that you are going to have to slow down if you want an honest answer that isn't, "Still alive."

This is irritating (but not particularly unusual I imagine)... I was tired of reboots losing unsaved work, and for the last year Microsoft has seemingly relaxed their QA testing on updates that they keep regularly borking up people's computers much more than usual. So, I normally keep my Internet/WiFi properties configured in Windows 10 to have a little control over the updates. I practice pretty tight/borderline paranoid security over my PC, so waiting a little bit for an "essential" fix isn't a problem, at least until I can read up on a delayed update(s) to verify that it isn't borking other people's PCs up or they've fixed it/released a patch for the patch for the patch for the patch...

But dang it, when I've set aside time to install updates, give me a Go Like A Bat Outta Hell button to download and install them. Don't make me wait and keep checking the status to see that Microsoft Updates is just sitting there, not downloading, not installing, not doing anything. I have the time now, so lets do it now and get it done, so I can go back to doing what I need to be doing.
