Grumpy Old Crappers
January 21st 2004, 21:49 CET by Fragaday

I was heading through town the other day when I noticed some teenagers generally messing about and being rowdy, screaming and yelling. That sort of thing annoys me no end, and I found myself thinking "Kids today...". Which was a bit disturbing, considering I'm only 20 myself. This got me thinking about how annoying people younger than me seem nowadays, and then, onto the world in general, and the general cynicism that seems to be infecting the populace of the planet. Is this a recent thing, or have I just not noticed before? Has the Internet contributed to the madness?

So, what makes you incredibly mad? What events, people or things just make you angry, and amazed that the world could possibly be this way?

On the flipside, what restores/has restored you faith in humanity? What makes you smile?

Or instead, just talk about who you want to be President. And do you feel the need for speed?

Racists, homophobes, and Southern Baptists make me mad.  Wait, that's redundant.

People being younger than yourself being jerks is not new.  It's always been that way.  The internet hasn't made it worse per say, just exposed it more.  Kinda like picking up a rock and seeing all the bugs underneath.  Kids today are jerks, and when I was a kid they were jerks too.

I'm enjoying being a self-centered jerk in my twenties.

The list of things that annoy me is so long, it's unbelievable, but most of them really come down to a basic "not paying attention to the existence of other people" thing. An example: I don't come to a full-stop with no warning while walking in a crowded mall, then just stand there like a drooling retard debating if I want to enter the store or not. Why? Because I am aware that there are people behind me who would probably like to continue walking.

I'm honestly trying to think of recent examples of things that have reaffirmed my faith in humanity, but having a hard time. I'll get back to you.

Actually the older I've gotten, the more I've noticed that adults act like children as well. They just hide it better. Mostly.

Dubby gave his "tawk" last night.  He didn't mention his coke-inspired Mars invasion at all.  The reason is clear.

My oldest nephew is 5.  I'm thinking for his birthday to get him a GBA or something to play games.  His father is woeful in the department so I'll have to pick up the slack.  I did give his father the Atari 10-in-1 for Christmas, but neither (dad or son) care for it.

Also, ever since my nephew was born I've been waiting for him to get into the cool toys.  Those start around 8 years old though.  He has some good one now, I think the wooden Thomas the Tank engine track is the best.  I wonder when he his puberty if he'll still want to hang with his Uncle.

Chunkstyle -

Under six is okay as long as you can hand them off to their parents and get the hell away from them after about twenty minutes. Any more than that and the cuteness factor wears off and you realize you're basically dealing with a dog that walks on two legs and likes to grab random stuff and toss it around.

Teenagers at least are people. They're angsty people, but they're capable of having an actual conversation.

I'm a Big Brother who got matched with a kid who's 12.  He's really quite troubled and his behavior disorders are so severe that he may not be allowed to continue with the program.  I've worked with him for about a year and his attitude has just spiraled downward.  If I had to do it again I'm definitely going suggest a younger kid, say 8, who isn't so angry at the world yet.
#33 by Jibble
2004-01-21 22:30:51
Did you show him these message boards?  If so, that might have something to do with that rapid downward spiral...

Nosir.  

See, either way, you read all three threads.  Your suggestion has ME expending more time and effort that gains you nothing.

I'd be more than happy to do you a favor, but let's make sure it's worth something on the front end.

Far Cry demo is a lot of fun, its Project IGI meets Halo, alternative routes aplenty, variety of firearms, large explosions, nice open landscape, some vehicles to play around in and reasonably intelligent hostiles to shoot at.

It also, unlike Halo, runs extremely well.

The Far Cry demo is a sad sight. Looks great, runs great, but the gameplay is as old and tired as Doom.

I second what Chris said.  Babies are cute when they're happy, but when they're upset they want to ruin everyone else's day too.  There used to be a family living above me who had a cute girl in the 4-6 range.  She was quiet and friendly whenever I saw her, but inside her house she would throw screaming tantrums that ripped through the walls and ceiling like it was tafetta.  Also, her and her brother liked to play a game called "jump off the highest piece of furniture you can find."

Back to the original question "What makes you incredibly mad?", I can't think of anything.  Screaming children make me cringe, the Bush Administration makes me believe in evil, Canadian politics makes me apathetic (actually, a lot of things do that--I'm just giving one example), stupid people make me cynical and condescending, but nothing really makes me angry.

I guess I really am a grumpy old man, I notice more and more things that piss me off:

People who back into parking spaces drive me nuts.  Especially when they suck at it, and there are other people trying to get down the lane in the parking lot.  Inconsiderate bastards, they need good beatings.

Dentists.  They are way too full of themselves, and much meaner than other far more impressive types of doctors.

People who say "I can't do, that I've never been trained" while I am in the process of training them.  I'm very patient with those who are willing to learn, but if you're not, die.

There's more, of course.  And more every day I age.

Life is full of misery, loneliness, and suffering - and it's all over much too soon.
