Online articles that give you tips to stay cool in the summer. Especially the "tip" about eating hot food because it makes you sweat, and thus cools you off. YOU SWEAT JUST BEING IN HOT WEATHER.

The winter version of these tips. How to avoid hangovers during New Years...DON'T DRINK LOLOLOLZ;FJASD;LKFJADS;LKFJ :mad:
They stopped giving tips in Texas years ago. I guess they got tired of the response "Its Texas. Its hot. Get used to it".

It hasn't gotten really cold in Texas since the Astros won the pennant.
Not sure if it's irrational, but everything about that whole state is a pet peeve of mine.

People that microwave popcorn in the office. Makes me want popcorn and empty calories that my no longer 20 metabolism doesn't do well with.

One thing I can agree with Texans on is they should secede.

Company intranet search fields that return zero results if you add an extra space after the number (used with account numbers).

Seems rational and poor SQL programming.

But this is why I wild card search damn near everything I can. So if something doesn't let me wild card search, then I get annoyed.

We also use dozens of applications, which require tons of approvals. HOWEVER, the app name is never the colloquial name used by the actual end users, so good luck finding the actual app, which uses codes and request numbers.

I just had one of those the other day.

One of the quality control managers that is located at a different plant emails me asking to get admin access to the tablets. I tell them that we don't give out admin access to any machine. So he copies the person over one of the apps they use on the tablet and asks her to help give out access. He literally said admin access to the tablet system. How was I supposed to know that meant the "quality traveler" program they use on the tablet and not the tablet itself.

So frustrating. Plus then they just act like why I didn't know what he was talking about.

The fact that the same person tends to inform you of every death, both celebrity and personal. My version goes by the name of Andrew C. and he just told me about someone who died who I barely had any connection to in high school.

Live performances by bands when they don't properly sing the 'hook' of their songs.

You've really revealed your age with that one. Unfortunately, I've revealed my age as well by knowing exactly what you're talking about.

Salt stigma in cooking. Salt has been unfairly demonized (remember when eating 12 servings of bread was highly recommended), and amateur cooks fear using it. SALT LIBERALLY PEOPLE

I think if you were around at the start of this game or during the Decipher years, then you would likely know who they are. Even if you weren't around for them, they were pretty much known for lip syncing by people that weren't around for their music.

This one is really irrational..

In any tv show/movie where they say the word 'truth', it usually makes me cringe. The actual word-sound of the pronunciation in a dramatic fashion irks me.

You must really hate A Few Good Men. You literally can't handle the truth.

Foils and WB cards. Man, I hate them. ESPECIALLY foils on GEMP - they look like garbage, and make gameplay more difficult because they are so distracting and blurry.

Airbnb properties that have cheap kitchen pans. Needs to be advertised.
