Things everybody loves but you HATE with passion

I'll start with my current #1: Guitar Hero... Good Lord! I really hate that game. I don't get how people spend that amount on money on that thing. Most ppl I know, buy it just to sell it a few days later. Meaning they didn't really like it that much in the first place. It just the "gotta have it" because "everybody has it". Bah!

#2 Veggies... specially on my pizza. I'm a carnivore! put meat on my pizzza... bacon, ham, sausage, etc not pickles, Meat!

#3 Expensive cars... I do appreciate new cars that doesn't brake, nor sound like they are gonna break apart. But I'm just as happy with the cheapest car on the dealer. If it runs, have radio and AC, I'm good to go.

#4 Napolitan IceCream... Most ppl I know buy it but only eat the chocolate part.. WTF, buy a chocolate one then, don't you think?

#5 Products with pieces of fruit... like most yogurts, some ice creams and others.

#6 Reguetton Music... Just because there is more to PR Music than Daddy Yankie

#7 Calling all MP3 Players "IPODS".

...that's it for me. The other ones are political/religious and belong to P&R.

Video game systems. I think people are spending way to much time sitting still on their asses and doing non productive things.

People that dilute the meaning of the words "love" and "hate".

VW's, overrated, a GTi is not fast, a TDi is not exactly the best thing for the environment, and Passat Wagons just plain suck.

Mercedes, I just hate them out of spite.

That new "Syncro-Rev" option for the new Nissan 370z, it is the most pointless thing since "Low speed ABS". Oh wait, there is no such thing as "low speed ABS"

Miata Haters- People who assume that people who drive Miatas are gay or women.

Vista- Wait, nevermind, everyone hates Vista.

People who drive too close to you and spool up their turbo and make revving noises like they have something to prove to me. If you are one, GTFO.

The proprietary-ness of apple products.

T-Pain

Lamborghini's, Nothing says "poseur" like driving a tinted up Gallardo through the streets of Bellevue with the stereo blasting.

Weightlifting- It is incredibly boring..

CVT, It's not like you are going to save more fuel the an automatic, just get a good old stick shift, you save more gas that way.

ABS, it is annoying.

Splenda

Dell laptops

That U3 function on the "SanDisk smart thumb drives"

Lil Wane, stupid "gangsta"

"Healthy food" at our school. With poorly made pizzas and fries..

Chrome

Chrome rims

SUVs

People who abbreviate anything over internet chat, it gives me a headache; guess what? "u r rtrded"

People who try to weave swear words into their sentences but fails to do so in a grammatically correct fashion.

Chrome is a biggie, it is gawky and ugly.

Street racer types that use after market exhaust systems. Sounds like they punched a hole in the manifold, mounted a remote microphone, and broadcast it on an amplifier

Pandora for asking me if I'm still listening every other song

Cell phones (and their bretheren like ipods, blackberrys, etc.).

When those things go off, why do owners HAVE to stop whatever they are doing to answer it? Use your voicemail!
And why does everyone EXPECT the person they are calling to answer immediately. They don't even think I might be doing something else more important?
