As you have seen on this site in the past, “punk rockers” hate everything. That’s right. If I do a review, and they agree with the review there won’t be a single comment, but if I accurately diss their beloved Beatles . . . they will light up the comments for that article. So, after my thorough investigation . . . I have concluded punks love to hate. So, I decided to cater to your hatred and come up with the top 10 things I hate. Enjoy hating this!
10. Seeking The Perfect Parking Spot
Now I’m simple like this, I pull into a parking lot. Things look full; I go to the end of the parking lot park, and walk to the store. My Wife will circle for 20 minutes looking for a spot up front. Makes me crazy. By the time we park, I could’ve already got what I wanted and been in line.
9. My Exes
Nothing is worse than a bitter SOB. I have known women (a few guys, too), that after a decade or more they are still hung-up on shit they claim you did or said to them. Women don’t forget, so this is their forte. Years ago, before I was married, one of my exes called wanted to go out for a drink. I said sure what the hell. We go out, and now . . . I haven’t seen her in five or six years. She proceeds to tell me everything I did wrong in our relationship. Lucky me. There has to be an expiration date on this shit.
7. David Carradine
6. Hip Jargon
Over the years I have found, when dealing with people, that proper English seems to put a lot of people on edge. So, I tend to work a lot of slang into my day-to-day jargon. But I hate it when a word or phrase that I previously hated works it’s way into my lingo. Such as, Back In The Day. I never liked this phrase, it’s stupid, but six months back somebody was asking me about the old song by The Members, Working Girl, I responded with I saw that video back in the day. Damn.
5. Music Debates
It used to be the first thing out of my mouth when I met some, “what kind of music do you like?” Now, I never ask, because I will hate their music, and eventually be asked my taste in music, which they will hate. On this site and a few others I have been involved in a few MAJOR debates over vintage long-hair bands that on occasion have been known to blow donkeys, and after pulling facts, figures, and an occasional pie-chart, people are going like who they like. You can’t win, so let’s talk about less confrontational things like politics and religion.
4. Rape of The Culture
I stole this line from a Sopranos episode. Pauly and Big Pussy go into a coffee house and Pauly starts complaining, how all this coffee stuff was stolen from Italy, and Big Puss says “Again with the rape of the culture.” In 1981 a band called Godhead release a seven inch EP on Bemisbrain Records; in 2009 a band called No Friends released a CD on No Idea Records, again with the rape of the culture. I won’t even get into the ass-clowns who stole my old bands name, Cold War.
3. Distorted Views of Self
Without pointing fingers at specific people . . . I know many people, thieves, junkies, liars, and I have noticed they will always be the first to point out your flaws, and give advice. Try to take advice from someone who just got out of jail, smells of cheap wine, wine they just stole. See if that doesn’t pepper a little hate into your life.
2. Solitaire Issues
As petty as it seems, I can’t stand people standing over my shoulder while I attempt any kind of video, or computer game. They will always see which move you should be doing before you do.
1. Food Court Seating
Now I don’t know why this irritates me, but I hate it when I go to a food court, or any type of restaurant, where you seat yourself, and the place is dead empty. So, I stroll over to the corner, sit down, and guess what? The next dildo to walk into the place will automatically sit next to me! Why?
