bad attitude, not enjoying the moment, not enjoying the scenery, being a bump on a log, and the list goes on and on.

Women who dislike me for something or someone I may remind them of. At least get to know me first. I can give you plenty of reasons to hate me...or not.

I would say rudeness to a third party. Not that I'm never rude--it's just easier to notice in others and when someone I'm with is rude, I feel like I have to apologize for them, making it uncomfortable to be around them.

Ha, that's weird, I almost posted a thread asking the questions James Lipton asks on Inside the Actor's Studio:

1. What is your favorite word?
2. What is your least favorite word?
3. What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
4. What turns you off creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
5. What sound or noise do you love?
6. What sound or noise do you hate?
7. What is your favorite curse word?
8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
9. What profession would you not like to do?
10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?

Low quality ricers, which around here means Honda's, which are in a sickening abundance.

Turnoff? People who think they're better/smarter than me, yet need me to answer questions for them. People who think they can terrorize me off the road.

Now....
1. Can't print it here, but it starts with F (see Mr. Carlin for his onstage treatise on the word).
2. Religion
3. Riding my bike!
4. Family reunions
5. The sound of my daughter's & nephew's laughter, tied with either/both of them saying, "I love you."
6. Subwoofers in cars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
7. See #1
8. Architect
9. Wal-Mart manager!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
10. Heaven DOES exist; the "Pearly Gates" do NOT, and I would love to hear YHWH Elohim say, "Welcome home, faithful child."

Didn't mean to derail the thread, unless thread-God approves.

Painted toenails. I don't know what the deal is, maybe I'm just not facinated by feet and don't care to have my attention drawn to them, but I just can't stand to see a woman with bright red (or any other color) toenails. I can mildly tolerate the "French manicure" look on toenails.

Dingbats. I hate dingbats. Many of them have painted toenails.

I'm not sure Honda has ever equated to "low quality." If it's not your aesthetic taste, that's a different matter. Those cars are certainly superior to most American junk on the roads nowadays. Depressing but true.

Anyway, if you don't read books, I'm out the door. I have in my life met a couple of bizarre androids who didn't like listening to music, at all, and the same goes for that.

Sanctimony

Example: A few months ago while eating in a steak house I did not care to use the dumbo, child safety scissor-esque, restaurant knife. I used my pocket knife instead. A woman at a table across from us came over to say she had her children present and would rather I did not display my weapon at the table.

Oh, and {insert word here**.com dating website commercials.
