    had this experience at a Dylan show last summer. Anyone that's been to a Dylan show knows that singing along is just not a possibility. Yes, everyone knows the words to Tangled Up In Blue, but trying to predict how they lyrics will be phrased is anyone's guess. So obnoxious "I know the words guy", please shut up.

    i am really trying to not let what other people do at shows aggravate me. It's tough, because it seems like crowds are getting worse by the day. It's a challenge.

    Idiots with kids. Just saw a nice young couple walking through a parking lot that happens to be hosting a raging party... Dad's pushing a stroller with a sleeping infant, Mom's carrying the 12er and smoking a joint.

    People who don't know how to act around people they don't know. Seems there's a lot of this in CO... Walk into a room full of people you don't know and introduce yourself to someone only to be met with a blank stare and "uh..." I was just home for a funeral and met lots of people I didn't know. The correct response, which most east coasters seem to know already is "Oh hey, my name is..."

    WTF?

    In basketball there seems to be a permanent sympathy call for people that get their shot blocked. I'd say about a third of the time the defender hits the ball then the offensive player pushes the ball out of bounds.
    "One season per year, the gods open the skies, and releases a white, fluffy, pillow on top of the most forbidding mountain landscapes, allowing people to travel over them with ease and relative abandonment of concern for safety. It's incredible."

    When people referring to their favorite sports team, people who say "we," like they're apart of the goddamn team. "We" didn't win the game last night, a bunch of high skilled athletes did, you sat on your ass and watched it while drinking beer.

    I'm not talking about a bunch of hippies at a dead show singing along. I'm talking about the fool in the parking lot, apres skiing, that sings along with a Van Morrison tune. Your drunken buddy on a road trip that starts singing along with The Pretenders mystery achievement. We've all done it.

    No shit, going to an Alanis Morisette concert is fucking annoying to begin with.

    I think I blogged about this person in the annoying office habits thread, but I have an employee who has a lilting sing-songy way of speaking… every word, every sentence, every time, all the time.

    No exaggeration. It’s gotten to the point where I cringe when she comes in my office knowing she’s going to delight me with a little ditty about her work. She reports directly to me and I’ve stopped meeting with her regularly because she sings her reports. It’s like she’s in a musical 24/7.

    Plus, not only does she sing everything, but she can never answer a simple ‘yes’ or ‘no’… but has to answer with a musical number complete with characters, plot, personification, themes of good and evil, and old folksy sayings that I thought died a generation ago.

    For example, I asked her this morning if the summer content on our website was updated yet.

    "Yes indeedy” she starts to sing. “I told Mr. Computer this morning that he and I were going to spend some time together and update mean old Mr. Website and it was a struggle but by golly 3 hours and 4 cups of coffee later we have summer updated and it’s the bees knees!”

    Again, this is all communicated to me through the art of song.And I used to enjoy music.

    And she has a moustache so she’s difficult to look at.

    Can you fire someone just because they’re annoying?

    Well, if you're really into a team, and watch the game every night, and spend thousands of dollars a year on tickets and fan crap, have your whole house and car decked out, I think you can start to make that argument - just as much as some low level employee of the organization could.

    When people use only a players first name while watching a game.

    This has some obvious exceptions like Lebron or Peyton.

    Peyton who?

    Douchebag.

    If the game is actually on, and Jim so and so is hitting, dribbling, whatever, it's way more reasonable to refer to them by name than to assume that any athlete can go by their first name outside the game context.

    On a related note when did people insist on this way of speaking where they end every element in a list on an up note? Know what I mean? For example "I had a hectic day yesterday. First I had to take the kids to soccer, then I went to the store, then I had to cook dinner..." where the italicized word in each item is said in an up note and sort of drawn out. I swear people didn't used to do this, but now it's ubiquitous.

    Drives me apeshit.

    Also, ending a sentence with a trailing "so" as if I'm expected to infer what the speaker is implying. For example "The AD's birthday is coming up soon and he really likes cocaine and prostitutes, so..."

    And why is the word soccer getting hyperlinked?

    And, by the way, my birthday is coming up, so...

    my overly loud, perfume wearing disaster up front breaks into high pitched baby dog voice when she comes in my office and talks to my dogs. Every time. Now don't get me wrong, I talk in dog voice all the time, but her volume and tone...ugh, even the dogs hate her.

    What's the accepted statute of limitations on this anyway? I figure if someone is right there I'll hold the door. Let's say within ten feet or so.
