I hate when you come to look for something REALLY important that you absolutely NEED, cannot find it...turn the house upside-down looking for it, and it was there in your pocket all the fucking time.

I hate it when you decide to recarpet 3 rooms and book a carpeter before you decide where to put 3 rooms worth of junk.

I hate wasps. 'Nuff said.


I mean, what is their fucking purpose in the world? I know there's all the breeding and stuff, but what use do they serve for nature? To an extent I can understand blowfies, because they decompose shit...wasps dont even do that! They just sting everything.

lol well, I wouldn't like a connection like that either. But I'm not having problems with that atm and wasps will always be around. Having a large garden does have its cons :rolleyes:.

I have wild bees. And fly's as long as a thumb. Wasps don't bother me much.

I dislike wasps more than bees. I do dislike those very big ones, don't recall whether it was a wasp or bee, I think it was a wasp queen or something, we found it in the bakery house.

Turkey have it worse. They have two kinds of wasp: one of which is the same size as our common wasp, but slightly different pattern, the other is about four inches long, bright red in colour and you can see its legs dangling beneath its body at ten paces.

One of the guys who worked in a restaurant we went to killed one of the big bastards and said about a time one'd stung him and he ended up in hospital for three days.


Though we did catch one of the small ones in between the mosquito grid and the window itself (there's a grid on the outside of the window to stop those little fucks getting in). We came back an hour later and it was stone dead :rolleyes:

You mean, like my car keys? :p
Usually they're not in your pocket, which you have to check six or seven hundred times.

yeah that happens to me too much for comfort too (usually involves misplacing my glasses, and since I'm almost blind without them :dry: )


another thing I hate, and this might just be me, is when on forums for games people use these silly abreviations that really drive me nuts. Like calling a juggernaut a "juggie" or a dreadnought a "dready"...goddamn that gets on my nerves :p

I hate searching for keys or phone, I always have to ring it and find out where it is by the sound.

Luckily you can ring the phone, it's more annoying when you're looking for something you can't ring (like keys) :p.

Now, if your vision is as bad as you claim it is to me, then there's no way you couldn't notice...

My vision has never been that bad, really. I could get by quite easily without glasses or contacts. I have been known to not notice their absence or presence on occasion...I once went into swimmingpool with them on :p

Well, I kinda wasn't realising I was wearing them :p. I'd notice if they weren't there yeah, I don't know, happened some years ago, I don't recall what I was thinking :dry:. Just funny to think back of.
