What are your irrational hatreds, things you hate and you know it makes no sense to hate them?
my irrational hatreds…
micro$oft and billy-boy gate$; for using anticompetitive practices, basing windoze off stolen Apple code (windoze 1.0 and all it’s decendants were based off code stolen from Apple’s Lisa computer (the predecessor to the Mac) ) and foisting buggy, unsecure, unstable crap on the consumer market (and for consumers being stupid enough to buy it), i’ll never own a m$ product, i hope they go out of business and expire (i know they probably won’t but i can dream, can’t i?)
automatic transmissions; the most boring, useless tranny design in exisence, barring medical neccesity, i don’t understand why anyone likes them, they must be too lazy to learn to drive properly, i’ll *never" own a vehicle with a slushbox
any vehicle made by the ford motor company, ford is the m$ of cars, they’re products suck, and they’re everywhere, my first “car” (the Murphy’s Lawmobile) was an '88 escort, the thing was the worst piece of shit i had ever had the misfortune of owning, you name it, it broke, i treated it well, never abused it, and it fell to pieces around me, it had an asthmatic 85 HP, and could barely get out of it’s own way.
my sister had a ford f-150 that was constantly breaking down (she used it to tow her horse trailer), heck, her first car, a VW golf, was more reliable, and she abused that thing like there was no tomorrow, running it on vapor, not changing the oil or coolant unless she was told to, i lost count of the number of times her coolant resivoir was bone dry, yet it still ran, the ford died if you looked at it funny
her husband’s contour was also a piece of shit, and he took car of it, the less said about the focus problems (bad brakes and other crap) the better
nothing will convince me ford is any good, they male crap and nothing will convince me otherwise
suits and ties (and the people who wear them);
the hangman’s noose is the most uncomfortable, useless piece of cosmetic embelleshment in existence, i was forced to wear that crap in high school (private college-prep school with a dress code) and when i graduated, i promised myself that i’d never wear that shit again as long as i live, they’re uncomfortable, stupid things, and i’ll never understand why anyone would wear that crap when they don’t have to, in fact, after my graduation ceremony from high school, in celebration of my freedom from the hangman’s noose, i had a cookout that evening, and the fire that cooked the food was fueled partially by the stupid hangmans nooses, burn, you symbol of corporate repression, burn!
it seems strange to me that suits and ties are considered “conservative”, in my opinion, “conservative” clothing is simple, non gaudy, non-pretentious clothing, a tie is a useless decoration, a piece of cloth that serves no practical purpose (other than to annoy me and be a useless piece of cosmetic embelleshment), that doesn’t seem to be “conservative” at all, to me, conservative clothing is a comfortable pair of jeans and a sweatshirt, simple, comfortable, and no cosmetic frippery
i don’t know why i react this way, but any time i see someone wearing a suit and tie “when they don’t have to” (i.e. just walking around in public, not at work, in a photo, etc…) i feel this surge of rage at someone being forced to wear that stupid piece of crap, or even worse, wearing it for no reason, i don’t know why, but i just get ticked off at the person/image and usually mutter to myself “stupid pencil-neck, wearing that shit when they don’t have to”
maybe it’s resentment from high school or something, i don’t know, i’m just glad my current job has an “anti-dress-code”, you are banned from wearing that crap, and if the boss catches you wearing it, he’ll cut the tie off
yes, these hatreds are stupid and irrational, i admit that, but i don’t care
