    The grinds my gears thread

    It's pretty simple, you post something that "grinds your gears", meaning something that ticks you off and you need to address it. It can be anything, even political, just as long as it doesn't offend anybody. I'll go first.

    What really grinds my gears is when someone wears a baseball cap, but has no knowledge of the cap's team.

    What grinds my gears is how people in sports ay that there needs to be more black head coaches (especially NFL). I think The best 32 Coaches should get the jobs, no matter what race or religion, if the 32 best coaches are black, then there should be 32 black head coaches if 10 are white 6 are asian and 16 are Latino, that's the way it should be, the best coaches should get the jobs.

    You know what really grinds my gears? No one's come up with a new priest and a rabbi joke in like 30 years. Ok, ok, uh, a priest and a rabbi go into..the supermarket. And the preist says, let's buy a ham. And the rabbi says, "Nope. Can't eat it. Not allowed. It's forbidden." Pigs are like super-heroes to them. Is it perfect? No! But I dont see you coming up with anything better. And that, people, is what grinds my gears.

    People who spell "definitely" as "definately"; those who spell "ridiculous" as "rediculous"; those who spell "Crissy Moran" as "Chrissy Moran" (i.e. Lynch); those who spell "should have" as "should of"; and those who say the time in "EST" when it's really "EDT".

    Also, people who like Eli Manning.

    DK must definately not like me. Its a little rediculous, but I guess my love for Eli Manning and not him did it. I should of kept it a secret, but I am not that kind of person.

    At least I still have Chrissy Morgan. Speaking of, I'm meeting her at 9 PM EST.

    Guys who do that bother me equally as much.

    And, while we're on the subject, sterotypes really grind my gears.

    I hate Asians, they drive so slow! J.K.

    I hate people who make fun of Jewish people (I'm not even Jewish). i.e. South Park. And put their religion down because it isn't their religion. Remember: Jesus Was a Jew

    another thing that grinds my gears is that nobody has apparantly caught on to the Family Guy reference of my first post in this thread.
