The victim mentality. It seems like everyone these days likes to act like they're in some kind of oppressed minority in whatever they follow.

Also "social justice warriors". I'm not often personally exposed to them, but when I am it's incredibly cringe-worthy. That rubbish can just go away forever.

To be fair some people are in an oppressed minority.

Oh there are so many...

* Selfies
* Photobombing
* People saying hashtag out loud.
* People who say "omg" "lol" or "SO" out loud.
* Scripted reality shows such as Made In Chelsea and TOWIE. It's just dumb people having sex with each other...jeez...
* Reality shows like the x factor. It's all rigged before hand anyway.
* Dramas that don't have an actual ending just in case they want to make a season two.
* Anti-feminism (sexism seems to be coming back into fashion. If it doesn't stop, we'll end up going backwards)
* American tv shows being cancelled part way through in the UK for no bloody reason
* Everyone talking about VR. I seriously hope it never happens.
* Twitter and facebook
* Dating apps like tindr
* Black Friday in the UK. It's not an english tradition, just no...
* Anime dvd's that say "complete collection" but there's OVA's missing


You know I agree with almost every point you've made...what's going on?

Except these two but I can't be assed to deal with feminism today. Why are you against VR though?

Funny how this is coming from a female. Beards symbolize high testosterone and fertility men who can't grow proper beards are likely weaker and more feminine lower t levels.

Exactly this. It irks me when a phrase takes on a euphemistic meaning, then starts to be used only to refer to that meaning. What do I say if I literally just want to watch Netflix and chill?

I'll see your "Every SINGLE danged YA-novel franchise going for those two-part Deathly Hallows finale dreams", and raise you "Every single YA-novel franchise thinking they have a 'right' to film the entire series from first book to last, Potter-envious two-part finale included".
Yes, we know you're grinding out a third movie anyway, Maze Runner, but don't even f***in' THINK about it.

(Some of us will, however, tolerate the two-part Marvel Avengers finale, since we know at least one of those two movies will be what Age of Ultron should have been.)

Getting caught in the hype to upgrade your cell phone when new model is released
Diagnosing every aliment known on planet for excuse that your kid is slow or blaming it on your own miss fortunes
piling on someone on the internet. Say the same thing to persons face if you got balls any one can type something on keyboard

People who post stuff like "Thoughts and Prayers going to..." after some tragedy when those people don't do a single thing to help. All they are saying is, "Don't forget about me during all this trouble, look how much I care." Annoying...



For reference, a comedian called Anthony Jesselnik does a bit about this that is spot on.
