People who use emotional arguments, instead of rational arguments.

People who assume and refuse to question, at surface, their convictions and beliefs derived from such assumptions.

Ignorance. I have to qualify that however, because I define ignorance as an active process of avoiding information in an attempt to relinquish oneself from the responsibility of thinking for yourself. Not as a passive state of merely not-knowing, or even simply being "stupid."

I hate dhghickheads. Someone who deserves not to be alive, but choose not to die because they're a dijgkckhead (excuse the language, but there is no other word to describe them).
Oh and this

I have two rants on there.
I'm annoyed by loads. I could probably have a rant a day

Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

That's remarkably profound...and so true. You rarely see that on DDO

Being thrown into situations where i am expected to know exactly what to do and how to do it without ever being told how to do it and not having the time to learn on my own, and then people being frustrated because i am not meeting their unrealistic expectations.

And also when i'm looking for something for ages and i'm so frustrated that i can't find it, so i ask someone where it is and apparently it was right in front of my face the whole time.

A lot of people are talking about arguments and ignorance and confrontations. Do you guys really experience a lot of that in your daily lives? At no stage in my life has the intellectual incompetence of others been so constant or pervasive that I considered it a problem, let alone the most annoying thing I have to deal with.

People who believe in subjective morality but then complain about Pro-Lifers, Misogyny, or homophobia >.< Seriously.

Well I also get annoyed when my mom asks who left a dish out, without specifically asking me to clean it, since doing so would get it done faster. But. You know. We're all hear complain about those pesky atheists and Christians.

Ignorance annoys me because I see all of the world's biggest problems everyday paraded over the media, and I think of how if people used their minds for something other than "Getting money and f*cking b*tches" along with other aimless, self-indulgent behaviors, it would all become much more feasible to solve those problems. So yes, that does annoy me everyday.

If you still don't like that answer, take the fact that I can't see more than 12 inches in front of my face without squinting, wearing glasses that never fit my big head, or contacts that literally suffocate my eyeballs. Also, my front tooth is broken, it makes it difficult to speak and it's slightly pointy. Was that type of complaint more satisfying to you?

The tooth thing works for me, yeah.
