This is a question Irrational Hatred

People who say "less" when they mean "fewer" ought to be turned into soup, the soup fed to baboons and the baboons fired into an active volcano. What has you grinding your teeth with rage, and why?

Spiders used in advertising.
I'm not afraid of spiders but a lot of people are, so when I see one it makes me angry.

Not on behalf of arachnophobes - they can stick up for themselves, or run off, I don't care - but because the advertisers are being so darned stupid.

As arachnophobia is one of the two commonest fears, any product that's advertised with spidery imagery is going to repulse arachnophobes. So you can't sell that product to that quite large group of people. Seems pretty obvious to me.

(I have just one true phobia. When it was shown in my favourite TV series years ago I stopped watching there and then and have never seen it since, just in case. No, it wasn't a spider. I like spiders.)

I hate with a firey passion the sad, slack lipped, knuckle dragging morons whose only presence on any forum is to post a rude and belittling comment on every thread they can. Spittling bile and misplaced anger at the world, they vomit up a reeking stomachfull of ill directed hate at anyone who can claim to have even a smidgen of happiness in their lives.
Perhaps it's an attempt to make their own tormented existence less soul crushingly empty. Perhaps it's just a cry for attention with the premise that even being hated, despised, and reviled is better than being ignored. Perhaps it's even a misguided attempt to make contact with the rest of the human race.

Go fuck yourselves until you suffer rectal prolapse and die from the resulting peritonitis.

Product Placement in films
Be they subtle or obvious. Whenever I go to the cinema or watch a rental dvd, I spend the time ignoring the plot/characters/dialogue and looking for the product placements, just so I can be annoyed be about it.

Temporary chocolate bars.
How very dare you bring out the dark chocolate mars bar and then stop making it once I'd acquired a taste for its incredible richness and glucosey-without-sickly-cuddle.

Yes I know wispa gold [bleurrrr] has returned but it took much 'cyber-protest' and something I can't see happening for the pretentiously named 'Mars Noire'.

I was shouting boo-urns.

Women talking dirty.
I know - how IRRATIONAL is that?!?! I should be delighted to be so lucky as to have a woman talk dirty to me right?

However it was all ruined for me by an ex who upon about to receive some L'Oral Face Cream declared "That's it, shoot your spunky mess on my naughty face!"

Hardly the most horny turn of phrase I'm sure you'll agree. Or probably won't.

Our Government and European spaktards
I have an irrational hatred for our government and also all the european spackers who can't run their country properly.
Our government fucks up our economy and we have to pay more taxes and face huge cuts in everything to sort it out.
Other euro "cuntries" fuck up their economy and then ask for mahoosive amounts of money to sort it rather than impose all the shit we have in the uk.
Our fucking government knowing what a shit state our economy is in just say "yes have fuckwads of our cash, our minions will replace it for us with even higher taxes on fuel, ex fucking cetera". And we aren't even part of the twatting euro!!

Tell the bunch of money grabbing cunts to fuck right off.
Charity begins at home not on foreign shores!!

I can't think why i have this irrational hatred, its beyond me.
Sorry, rant over.

Reversed footage on TV shows
This is a really odd one. I don't know when I started noticing it, but occasionally on a TV show they will need a pan across some vista for a few seconds, usually outdoors, usually to set the scene. And the director says "You know, that 3-second establishing shot would work better if we panned left-to-right instead of right-to-left. Have we got any left-to-right pans in the can? No?"

At this point they can, presumably, pack up a vanload of camera equipment and tootle off back to the place they were filming it, wait days for identical weather conditions (for continuity purposes) and get the required footage of a 3 second left-to-right pan.

Or they can just reverse the film. Not reflect left-to-right, but run the whole thing backwards in time.

This is fine and dandy until there's a flag, or a fire, or some smoke, or a waterfall, or some clouds, or a bird moving in the scene.

And then it just looks weird for 3 seconds. Just long enough to notice. This then breaks the flow of the narrative and I'm spending my time looking out for another one rather than ogling Billie Piper (or whatever).

Self Service Checkouts in supermarkets

I know they are supposed to be quicker for people with a couple of items

They're not. They're annoying, badly made, and make a 1 minute transaction drag out 10 times as long

Unexpected item in the bagging area? Oh don't worry thats a hand grenade

There's even a law about it FFS
Apparently you cannot like both Science Fiction and Fantasy. This is because of an irreperable gulf between the two, because obviously one is based on real science and the other is all frippery-la-di-da witches and you're-a-wizard-Harry's.

Which is bollocks, because most sci-fi is just made up, plausibly scientific sounding nonsense that is just there so the author can show off. At best. Quite a lot of it seems to wilfully ignore the laws of physics in order to show something cool.

It's a bloody story, it's MADE UP either way.

Train companies!
Fucking train companies that take 8 FUCKING HOURS to use a dustpan and brush!!!


this delayed me getting home last night (at 5:30pm) despite the actual incident occurring in the morning! to say that I was "insensitive" whilst I was sitting on one of the only trains leaving Waterloo at 6:40pm is an understatement, although one girl did laugh when I said out loud "How long does it take for someone to use a shovel?"

on the upside - managed to get a couple of beers in at the Fire Station pub next door to Waterloo whilst I waited :)

Lollipop people using Pelican crossings.
Inspired by a post below:
This makes me positively fume! How dare the lollipop people take taxpayers money to press a bleedin' button? How dare they?! For the inflated wage they walk home with, I expect them to duel traffic armed only with their brightly coloured tabard and gaudy sign; not to hide behind the very technology that was designed to wipe out their kind.

Fucking leeches.

Even my process of thinking about irrationality was, itself, highly irrational...
Rantings of a madman, Part 356:

I quickly saw the Q.O.T.W. this week and, instantly, an incredibly long list of shit that I hate automatically popped up in my head. It was a long list because I make Victor Meldrew look like the very embodiment of tolerance.

It was only after browsing the latest Image Challenge that I looked back at the Q.O.T.W., re-read the title and saw that it was *irrational* hatred (I suppose it would help if I paid more attention sometimes). I may be a mental case, but most of the things that I hate have a rationale behind them. Indeed, many of the answers I've read this week seem very sensible things to get annoyed about. So I won't be talking about any of the stuff that I feel is justified (all forms of disrespect, people saying "different than" instead of "different from" [and there was me thinking that taking the second 'i' out of Aluminium was the worst thing the Yanks had done to our language], Clive Tyldesley being allowed anywhere near a microphone, noisy eaters, stuff like that), but instead proving beyond any doubt - if there is any, which there isn't - that I am indeed madder than a fanfiction story of The Joker in Wonderland off his tits on L.S.D.

The thing I irrationally hate are those awful false nails that a lot of women wear these days. See, I told you I was a nutter. I don't know why I hate them; I just do. I think they're repulsive, and it wouldn't surprise me if I was alone in thinking that. How anyone can think they look good, I have no idea, but they seem very popular.

I've never liked women to have nails that are too long, and I think it comes from not wanting to be circumcised while being wanked off (if I wanted to be sexually mutilated, I could always join judaism or islam instead, or maybe another movement that encourages and/or requires such an evil practice - plus I could then have my retarded beliefs protected by law rather than being laughed at).

Is it only me that hates these hard, sharp pieces of plastic?

Bands who do false finishes before the encore at concerts.
It's invariably the song that you're most famous for anyway. You haven't played it, the whole fucking audience know what's happening and you're fooling no-one. Lets just cut the bullshit, please?

To top it off, tonight I worked at a concert where the band did at least four false finishes with songs after each. Each one was followed with pyrotechnics, confetti and various other special effects which were wholly unnecessary. Bastards.

People who don't know what irrational means
If you have an irrational hatred of something, it doesn't require justification as that hatred is subjective rather than rational.

I hate people who don't understand irrationality because it makes me really angry.

Radio etiquette
I work as a minicab driver for a large London-based firm who use radios to communicate with their drivers. What really gets my goat is the number of people who seem to have absolutely no grasp of correct radio etiquette.

It should be something like the following:

Driver: 'Charlie Papa 1-9-1' (my callsign)
Controller: 'Charlie Papa 1-9-1'
D: '*insert message here*'
C: 'Roger/further instructions'
D: 'Roger'
(driver and controller parts are pretty much interchangeable depending on who needs to pass on information)

Instead you get drivers calling, then not giving the contoller a message; or drivers giving their callsign and their message all in one go without waiting for the controller to acknowledge them; or drivers trying to call over the top of other drivers; or drivers not responding to the controller when he's trying to get hold of them; or... You get the idea. It should be easy, but for some people the concept seems to be beyond them!

Apologies for nicheness and length, but I have to put up with this incompetence for 11 hours a day...

On Top Gear when they say 'Porsche'. It's not Porsche, it's Porsche. Porsche just sounds like something you'd call your cat. In fact, I don't think I ever recall anybody saying Porsche until Top Gear.

Conversely, it annoys me when people say Renault instead of Renault.

Piers Morgan, Jeremy Kyle and Simon Cowell
Cunts, every one of them.

Except that I've never met any of them.

My opinion is based purely on their public personas and how they are portrayed in the media. Yet, even though I know my perception is based on information that is 'spun' to garner ratings or fit the story the media wants to tell, I believe it.
