Thread: My stupid pet peeves.

  1. #1

    My stupid pet peeves.

    Figured I'd put em out there and see if they drive anyone else nuts.

    Upsell pitches; especially ones that include the word "kicker".

    For example i was ordering some hot wings from Domino's. They come with a ranch sauce, the girl asked if that was all and i replied yes. And then she asks me "would you like to add a kicker ranch?"

    A brief pause ensued while i gathered my shit and i replied simply "no"

    What i wanted to say was. "No i dont.. As evident by me not asking you for it. If I wanted one I probably would have fucking asked. Right. Right.

    And what is up with the use of the word "kicker" to describe an additional product. Some upsell marketing bullshit thats not even being used in the correct manner. Kicker can be used to describe an additional outboard motor but not any product you so choose. What is wrong with the word extra, or additional.

    And it's everywhere, you go to a restaurant and order a margarita and the dumb shit blonde waitress ask you "do you want to add a kicker shot". Did I tell you to make it strong, did I ask you to also bring me a shot? No. How about I add a kick you in the pussy for asking me stupid questions with words that don't exist.

    And now even when you go to McDonalds and you're done with your order the person behind the counter asks you "do you want to add a 4 piece nugget". Holy shit you guys sell chicken nuggets!!? I had no idea! If I knew you guys sold chicken nuggets I probably would have ordered them. Thanks for asking. At least he didn't ask me "do you want to add a four piece kicker nugget"

    And it's getting so bad now they even do it at the drive thru with a pre recorded medsage " as soon as you pull up you get some incredibly professional sounding female voice that askes you "hi would you like to try one of our delicious chicken value meals" immediately followed by some shreck sounding mumbling bafoon saying "go ahead when you're ready." And I'm sitting there like, wait a minute, did I just have to listen to a fucking commercial before ordering my food.

    And why is this only acceptable in the food service industry. You don't go to sears and buy a saw and the person ask you "would you like to add some kicker blades to your saw purchase? Or. Do you want a socket wrench with that?

    Sheesh! Just stop it!

    How about the overuse of the word "right". Just because you draw the word out ten different ways doesn't make it different. You still sound like a complete dumbass! Am I right? I know, righhhht.

    I hear ya. However, Ive never heard the term kicker used in those types of places. Im guessing it will only be a matter of time. Ive noticed the commercial before ordering at drive thrus too. Weird.

    Songs recorded on cellphones at concerts and uploaded to youtube. Anyone who does this should be banned from youtube for life. They serve zero purpose as the audio and video is shit. Its just thousands of people screaming over a song nobody can hear or see. They serve no purpose but to say they were there and I could give a shit less if buttlicker43 went to a concert.

    I FUGGIN HATE ALL THE AUTO COMMERCIALS!!!!!

    They are 70% or more of the ads on TV. Yes, we know what makes and models y'all have and what is good and what is crap and if I want a damn vehicle I'll come to a lot near the house and kick a few tires and test drive something! How about saving yourself millions in advertising and dropping your fuggin prices so it's more affordable! I bet you sell a lot more vehicles and make a ton more money!

    If I see that fugger with his clipboard and stroking himself with Chevys coming up from the floor or behind wall after wall and trying to get "customers " to read award after award scrolling by at a speedreaders pace I'm gonna SCREAM!!!!


    There!!! I feel better.....rant over
    Carrying a shed or two for several hours while you continue to look for more early in a hunt is a burden but I'll try to work through it.....

I now answer sounding like a 100 year old man and make like they got the old age home... Sonny you know what today is?? Its BINGO day... You play bingo?? I go on and on till I hear bang...

    Camping a couple of weeks ago my daughter looks at her friend and says "bra"...I flipped my shit. First of all, the word is brother! Bra is something that holds your chi-chi's. I looked at my wife as she was laughing and said "sup underwear". Wtf

    Two girls calling each other undergarments thinking it's cool. You stupid asses, you ain't even brothers! I got a text from the little girls dad that following Monday. I'm glad he found the humor as it was bugging him. He said she won't say it anymore.

    Yuh, a lazy way of saying yeah. Which also grinds my gears. Yes is the word when kids are talking to adults. Even better would be yes sir or yes ma'am but that's asking too much of this generation. Or dumbasses like my sister YASSSSS! GTFO of here with that shit.
