    I had this discussion with a friend this morning. I think for me it's hypocrisy. I find it more irksome even than malevolence or dishonesty. Maybe because it's so prevalent.

    Making your children sick to get attention. Man, I hate that.


    No props at all? I've been waiting for this opening for months.

    Snobbery! the idea that someone due to a selective breeding program is better than you due to their class, money and school they went to. Fucking wankers the lot of em.

    A bit better than yesterday, all day vomiting for
    Dishonesty. I can work around most other traits in people, but if they are dishonest then the relationship lacks a base to build upon.

    Most of the other traits listed in this thread are just irritations IMO.


    I'm with Mr. Smith. Liars are the worst.

    People who have no concept of loyalty. People who are extremely uptight and easily offended. People who are hard core religious and can't stop talking about God.

    People who think their own character flaws are cute.

    Well that's kind of hard to get around, since everyone lies one way or another.

    This is extremely specific, but people are into conspiracy theories. It just takes over their lives, all they can talk about is whatever retarded conspiracy they read about recently, and it's impossible to have a conversation with them because of the intrinsic illogic in conspiracies.

    Piety.

    Seriously, if you believe something stupid, don't make a show of it. We're not impressed.


    Preening arrogance rooted in ignorance.

    One of my earliest good friends was a compulsive liar. It sort of makes the whole relationship irrelevant.

    Also, if someone can't make me laugh, I don't really see the point either.

    People who look down on other people (particularly not to their face),
    people who take opinions purely for the sake of it,
    people who think the world owes them a living,
    people who don't listen and are thick as pig shit,
    people who don't pay their way.

    And I forgot people who bang on about religion so much they turn non-conformist, independent thinking atheism into an organised religion in itself. If you don't believe why does it bother you that other people do?

    That special mixture of ignorance and arrogance that some elderly people develop. I refuse to be one of those elderly people that pushes into queues and gets pissed off when something they buy/order is wrong because they have no fucking idea what the product was in the first place but expect people to know exactly what they're thinking. Ignorance in the rest of the population is also disgusting.
