Top 5 Things That Irritate The Hell Out Of Me

I'm a nice person. Really.

But I'm a human too and there are things that just irritate the hell out of me! So, if you don't mind, let me share with you what they are.

OK, I'll just mention 5 most irritating things cos I don't want to irritate the hell out of you by mentioning 20. LOL!

So here are my Top 5 in no particular order....

1. Slow Internet Connection
I don't know about you but I think Streamyx broadband sucks. I have complained about this before last year (read here) and I think the problem remains. Sometimes the connection is so slow it reminds me of my dial-up Jaring days. Fortunately, it does not happen all the time, or else I will quit blogging!

Have you ever tried calling them? Try it! You will then know not only their internet connection sucks, their customer service sucks even more! Honestly, I think the Government should stop protecting them and give them the monopoly.

Please take a look at our neighbouring country Singapore. I'm so ashamed compared to them! OK, Singapore may be a small country but if Malaysia want to be a developed country by 2020, then I think it should really buck up especially where broadband connection is concerned.

2. Hot, Humid Weather
The last few days were really, really hot! You can even feel the burning sensation on your skin when you go out into the sun. It's that hot! But what makes it worse is Malaysia's humid weather. The equation goes like this:

Hot + Humid = Irritation

Now, I am a person who sweat a lot and easily too! So imagine what happens when it's hot and humid. My sweat does not get evaporated and it sticks to me like a magnet. I end up being sweaty and sticky all day long! Now if you want me to rate how uncomfortable that is, with 1 as most comfortable and 10 as most uncomfortable, I'll give it a 11!

I have tried taking frequent baths but that does not help at all! The minute I step out of the bathroom, I get all sweaty again! The only way is to switch on the air conditioner. Now that is bliss! Sorry to fans of Earth Hour, but I have to say the air conditioner is the single most important invention in human history! No wonder I like to "lepak" in shopping malls to enjoy the free air conditioning. Haha!

Of course there's an advantage to this hot humid weather. It makes you look younger. I'm not joking.

You know why we Malaysians look younger compared to Westerners of the same age? It's because the humid air here provides natural moisturising for our skin. Our skin don't get wrinkled as fast as those who stay in countries with dry weather.

This is one reason why you should not stay too long in air conditioned rooms because the air inside the room will be dry. But you can bet that this will not stop me from staying in one!

3. Traffic Jams
Anyone who likes being trapped in a massive traffic jam on the road, please hands up! I hate traffic jams! I will do everything and go all out to avoid them.

Traffic jams not only waste my time, they increase my car's petrol consumption, wear and tear and not to mention my blood pressure as well! I don't mind choosing an alternative jam-free road which is two or three times longer. It is easier on my car and at least wasting my petrol this way is more worth it!

Also, I sometimes rather pay toll than queuing at the alternative, toll free roads. What's the point of queuing when you lose more from increased petrol consumption? And don't forget, time is money! I'm not supporting tolls here, but I'm just saying, either way you still lose, so might as well pay the toll!

4. Long Queues
I dislike queues! Any kind of queues whether it is queuing at the post office, or the cinema ticket counters, or at the immigration department. And don't even mention about queuing at restaurants. Especially when I am hungry!

I will always avoid queues like the plague. So you won't see me queuing up to buy tickets for a cinema show. I rather booked it online and collect the tickets before the show. If I see a queue at a restaurant, you can be sure I will give it a pass no matter how good their food is!

5. Flu and Sore Throat
I dread the flu and I hate sore throat! And the combination of flu and sore throat just irritate the hell out of me!

I don't know how some people can have flu and sore throat and still be able to act as if they are not sick. I don't think I am able to do that. You see, when I am down with the flu, I not only suffer from blocked nose or runny nose (it's usually one or the other or both!), but also a plethora of other things from hell like sore throat, fever, headaches, stomach upset, nausea, anxiety and difficulty in breathing.

As such, I will do my utmost to prevent myself getting flu and sore throat. That includes not getting too close to people who are having the flu! So if you have the flu, please excuse me if I don't wish to meet up with you or even visit you! I'm not being rude here, I'm just being smart! Haha!

Well, there you have it! My Top 5 most irritating things. How about you? What are the 5 things that irritate the hell out of you?

    Slow internet connection can be such an irritant. I took sooo long just to upload some photos last nite...I almost fell asleep while waiting.

    April 3, 2009 at 12:26 PM
  2. Mei Teng said...

    Another thing that irritates me most are very slow drivers who drive below the minimum speed limit and still drive in the fast and second fastest lane. And same goes for those who not only drive super slow and but also can't seem to go over the speed bump like normal. They go over the bump in snail pace..as if at any given moment, the car's gonna break by going over the bump.

    These 2 categories of drivers should be banned from the roads. They are a MAJOR BANE to road users.

    3. The Malaysia Boleh tagline. A little less talk and more action please.

    4. Empty vessels that make the most noise..is indeed a fact.

    5. Pretentious people.

  4. HappySurfer said...

    Foong, you probably should live overseas where humidity is low (but growing old at a faster rate). Oops! LOL!

    Flu? Get a flu jab. It works - flu-free for one whole year!

    Don't get irrirated so easily. All the humidity in Malaysia will not slow down your growing old rate. haha... Also, mind your blood pressure..

    So, cool it, baby!

    Btw, it's gonna be another beautiful sunny day outside.. The weather started with 80degF this morning and is now at 87. There was one day, it recorded a 93degF! No wonder, you are sweating. Happy Friday..

    April 3, 2009 at 12:40 PM
  5. HappySurfer said...

    Mei Teng, slow drivers on fast lane -- yeah, I know this one. Can be frustrating if you are following one, eh? I don't know about you but 90km/hr on a highway is waaaaaaaayyy too slow, don't you think? Oh well, safety first. Still..

    April 3, 2009 at 12:46 PM
  6. Gallivanter said...

    It annoys basically everyone actually, except point 2 - foreigners LOVE that! LOL!

    April 3, 2009 at 1:12 PM
  7. Merryn said...

    1) ants
    2) sweat
    3) mozzies

    aiyo.. i can only think of 3! yeay! i am actually a jovial person that nothing much irritates me! hahahha..

    April 3, 2009 at 1:20 PM
  8. annant said...

  9. TZ said...

    Hey dude... we have the same top 5 things that irritated us... Errrr... no one wanna to make me pissed when i'm hungry... blek!

    April 3, 2009 at 2:03 PM
  10. lina said...

    I agree with Mei Teng on all counts. :)

    I don't hate long queues, but I hate people who don't seem to know what is a queue. Queue pushers and queue jumpers will feel my wrath!

    OK with traffic jam too, since I don't drive and I can sleep all through the jam. Not too sure about Hubby! LOL

    April 3, 2009 at 2:41 PM
  11. iamthewitch said...

    I hate sorethroat too! It's the disease that can spread the easiest! Just talking to a person with sorethroat will easily get you infected. Therefore, I always curse the person silently when I have chatted with him/her for a good half an hour, only to hear him/her complain later of sorethroat! Argh! Some heads up won't kill ok! :P

    April 3, 2009 at 2:44 PM
  12. lina said...

    foong so grumpy on Friday lah. LOL

    Got up the wrong side today, is it?

    April 3, 2009 at 2:49 PM
  13. kenwooi.com said...

    1) the internet connection in my uni hostel sucks, but i think i got used to it edy lol

    2) i dont like hotness too lol

    3) seldom experience traffic jams, but i'll wait.. unless i'm rushing for time, i dont mind..

    4) i'll just wait.. same as above, if im rushing for time, probably i'll get irritated..

    5) ahh.. who doesn't likes sickness? lol

    April 3, 2009 at 2:52 PM
  14. [SK] said...

    give me five!! and to add to your list.. long queue and THOSE BASTARD Q-JUMPERS!!!

    April 3, 2009 at 3:39 PM
  15. Nick Phillips said...

    You get irritated with the same things I do .. LOL!

    April 3, 2009 at 4:23 PM
  16. khengsiong said...

    Hmm... what irritate me?
    Mozzies, cockroaches, restaurant waiters / waitresses who make me wait...

    I think Asians generally look younger than Westerners, whether they live in humid tropical countries or in Japan with milder climate.

    Once a Western guy picked up a girl in Bangkok. He 'proudly' posted her photo on a forum. The forum members immediately blasted him for having sex with a minor. However, from the photo, I believe the Thai girl was over 20. Westerners somehow thought she was underage.

    Got up on the wrong side of the bed le?

    If given the choices of hot weather here and cold weather in Europe, I choose hot weather based on my experience there

  19. foongpc said...

    mei teng, congrats for being FC again! How come you always get to be FC? I notice you are FC in a lot of other blogs too. Do you stalk my blog? Haha!

    Oh yes, uploading photos always test my patience! I can go take a pee and come back and still the photo has not uploaded yet!

    Drivers who drive at snail pace in the fast lane will get the horn from me, that's for sure! Yes, I also notice some drivers go extra slow motion when driving over a bump. Maybe they love their cars more than their spouses. Haha!

    Malaysia Boleh is same as NATO to me ie. 'No Action All Talk' : )

    Empty vessels should keep quiet and pretentious people should be wiped out from the face of the earth! Gosh! Am I being too harsh? LOL!

  20. EastCoastLife said...

    Malaysia is a big country, so the internet connection might be a little slow. I'm sure it will catch up once the whole country is fully wired.

    April 3, 2009 at 6:10 PM
  21. EastCoastLife said...

    Singapore is getting traffic jams these days too. :(

    April 3, 2009 at 6:11 PM
  22. EastCoastLife said...

    Have a happy weekend!

    April 3, 2009 at 6:11 PM
  23. foongpc said...

    happysurfer, actually I think I like living in temperate countries! Never mind about getting old. I'll use botox. Haha!

    Flu jab? Maybe, but I prefer more natural ways to boost up my immune system to fight the flu virus!

    I'm cool now, not irritated cos I'm in an air-cond room. LOL!

    90km/hr is way too slow for you? Wow! You drive like a F1 racer is it? I don't drive above 90km/hr cos I tried before and found that my petrol got used up at a much faster rate! : )

    April 3, 2009 at 6:11 PM
  24. foongpc said...

    mei teng, oops! referring to my reply to your comment above, I realised I made a mistake.

    NATO stands for 'No Action Talk Only' : )

    April 3, 2009 at 6:13 PM
  25. foongpc said...

    gallivanter, yeah, the foreigners are so fed up with their sunless skies and cold freezing weather, I'm sure Malaysia is like heaven to them!

    merryn, only ants, sweat and mozzies? You like traffic jams and snail paced internet connection, is it? : )

    annant, I hope I don't ever block your way! *scary*

    Eh, why you get irritated with empty wallets? Just go to the nearest ATM or use plastic cards lah : )

    Btw, what is bo (no.2 on your list)?

    April 3, 2009 at 6:20 PM
  26. HappySurfer said...

    Foong, driving interstate at 90km/hr is really the pits! I drive a continental car so probably that's why I don't feel the speed. Anyway...

    You have a wonderful weekend.

    April 3, 2009 at 6:29 PM
  27. Mei Teng said...

    Yeah Foong, I 'stalk' ppl's blogs..haha...no lar. I just so happen to be there at the right moment ;)

    April 3, 2009 at 7:41 PM
  28. Mei Teng said...

    Haha..BO stand for body odour la! :)

    April 3, 2009 at 7:43 PM
  29. HappySurfer said...

    Such a coincidence! I just got a bathroom mat that smells just like that and I think I have to get rid of it. Eww.. Read what I wrote on Twitter. The subtle tweet is still on my site. Did you notice it? Go read it. LOL!

    April 3, 2009 at 8:24 PM
  30. foongpc said...

    TZ, really? Cool! What will you do the person who piss you off when you are hungry? : )

    lina, I dislike queue jumpers too! Wow, so lucky you have a chauffeur! But you know what, even if I am just a passenger in the car, I still cannot stand the traffic jam!

    Do I sound grumpy? No lah, I just want to share with you all about what irritates me. Maybe I got a bit over the top, but I'm really having a fine day! Haha!

    April 3, 2009 at 10:05 PM
  31. foongpc said...

    iamthewitch, yeah sore throat sucks! But some people just don't realize they are helping to spread the germs or virus when they are sick!

    kenwooi, get used to slow internet connnection? I guess if I have never tried broadband before, I can still survive with dial-up. But since I've already tasted broadband, I don't think I will ever get used to slow internet connection like dial-up.

    As for traffic jams and queuing, I get irritated even if I'm not rushing for time. LOL!

    April 3, 2009 at 10:22 PM
  32. JL said...

    Well, slow internet also irritates me a lot. But luckily I changed to P1 which is much better than you-know-who so not much issues on internet for now.

    Other than that the other 4 will be:
    2. Broken promises
    3. People who regard other people as mere tools
    4. Lies and false statements
    5. Hard-selling tactics - like those sales crew that keep pressuring you to register for that credit card *ahem*

    April 3, 2009 at 10:22 PM
  33. JL said...

    BTW my yahoo id is prince_caspian_86. Haha I very giler Narnia when I was making this id xP

    April 3, 2009 at 10:23 PM
  34. foongpc said...

    SK, yeah queue jumpers get on my nerves too! : )

    nick phillips, I guess I am not alone then! : )

    khengsiong, oh yeah, mozzies and cockroaches irritate me too. When I see them, I must kill them! It's already a built-in response in me. haha!

    Yes, I think we Asians are generally younger looking than the Westerners. It's in our genes, but I think the humid weather definitely helps too : )

    April 3, 2009 at 10:30 PM
  35. foongpc said...

    anton, I have never got up on the wrong side of my bed before, so it's nothing to do with that! Haha! Well, of course life has more positive things to offer, and one of them is the opportunity for me to blog about what irritates me. LOL!

    borneo falcon, I think I agree with you. I dislike hot weather, but I can't stand freezing weather! : )

    eastcoastlife, I really don't know when the whole country will be fully wired. At the current rate, it will take a long, long time!

    Even though Singapore have traffic jams, you can choose not to travel by car as the transportation system is so good!

    Happy weekend to you too! : )

    April 3, 2009 at 10:49 PM
  36. foongpc said...

    happysurfer, will check on your Twitter. Happy weekend!

    mei teng, thanks for letting me know what bo means! Haha! You must really be at the right place at the right moment to be FC on so many blogs. I still think you are a stalker. LOL!

    April 3, 2009 at 11:03 PM
  37. foongpc said...

    JL, very easy to get rid of those irritating salesman/woman, just give them a firm NO. That will stop them : )

    OK, will add you to my Yahoo Messenger.

  38. Merryn said...

    foongpc, i'm seldom on the road so rarely got stuck there..
    i've recently upgraded from dial-up to broadband.. so u figure out lah! dial-up man!!!

    but i forgot to mention.. i really hate cat's droppings in my neighbourhood!!!! arrrgghhh!!!!

  39. Che-Cheh said...

    Hmmm... still feels like reading a post written by a gal leh.

    Please replace the panda with your masculine pict la. :P

    Okay what irritates me?
    1. traffic jam
    2. backstabber
    3. road rage
    4. negativity
    5. boot licking

    April 4, 2009 at 12:10 AM
  40. Babette said...

    Foong, you should get that shirt with a built-in cooling fan. LOL I am not a fan of high humidity either. That's why whenever we're in Manila, we always use the AC. In all the malls in the Philippines, it's always crowded anytime of day because of people enjoying the cool temps from the AC. :o)

    April 4, 2009 at 12:22 AM
  41. foongpc said...

    merryn, oh no wonder! Just upgraded to broadband! So lucky seldom on the road. Cat droppings? That's surely irritating!

    che-cheh, no way! I love that cute panda! I'm also a private person, so no pics of me, thank you! You have a lot of people backstab you, is it? Check you sitting position in your workplace. Your back must not face the door. A little tip from feng shui expert Lillian Too : )

    babette, ha! So you understand my irritation with the humid weather here. I think that built in fan also does not work. You need an AC to dry up the sweat : )

    April 4, 2009 at 12:57 AM
  42. kenwooi.com said...

    lol i know why you have so many comments edy! coz you dont have a cbox here! =P

  48. Faisal Admar said...

    1st will be traffic jam.

    2nd slow internet connection.

    these 2 can drive me nut!

  49. HalfCrazy said...

    I'm a nice person too, haha! I hate having a slow internet connection. There are times I experience it but most of the time, I can surf without any problems. There was a time I tried calling my subscriber too, PLDT. PLDT is in the Philippines. Called to them about the slow internet connection, they give me shitty answers and solutions that doesn't work. They can just tell me, "It's normal, it happens all the time. It will be okay in a few days." - that's even more acceptable instead of "Do this and do that." which never works.

    You know what, Malaysia is so like my country, Philippines so I get what you mean about the weather. These past few days, it's raining so not complaints now. But I'm a little sick! That is a very interesting trivia about the humid thing why we appear younger than Westerners.

    DAMN IT, now your post irritated the hell out of me! if I would make a list like this too, we would totally be the same. I hate everything you said LOL.

    I hate traffic jams. But I love the way you write so I'm gonna follow you from now on. LOL I have a pretty short temper when it comes to these irritations! DAMN IT!

    geneva, migraine only? I have stomach ache, nausea, headaches, fever, and sore throat, and you only have migraine? Haha! Thanks for dropping by! : )

  51. foongpc said...

    dragon city, suffer from Monday blues? Haha! You are definitely not alone! : )

    borneo falcon, I think I will try to contact the organiser, but if no reply, I will take out the badge too : )

    faisal admar, looks like same as mine too! Haha!

    April 4, 2009 at 12:43 PM
  52. foongpc said...

    halfcrazy, looks like we have a lot of things in common, yes? Oh, your internet service provider also have the same kind of attitude like here in Malaysia? That sucks!

    Btw, thanks for your compliments and for following my blog. Really appreciate it!! : )

  60. Faisal Admar said...

    haha when it comes to driving + swearing and traffic jam + swearing... i really can't do as i preach. i always advise friends to be calm and patient when driving. its just to get from destination A to B. life is the priority after all, and anger just give you extra bonus for your high blood pressure.

    but 2 days ago... the same thing i heard from my friend to me! haha. damn!

  61. heidi said...

    You always make me laugh and laugh and laugh! I hate those things too and i must say that when I read that you said you were a girl my mouth literally dropped open in shock (then I saw the april fools day) and laughed even more. Always have so much fun stopping by!! Love that Jesse Mcartney song!

    April 5, 2009 at 12:35 PM
  62. keeyit said...

    "I'm a nice person"
    Hahaha. This sentence already make me laugh le..

    Not angry ar... You know that you are nice but seldom got people say it out one ma... :P

  63. foongpc said...

    molly, oh, I hate them too! : )

    bengbeng, I hope you are joking, no? : )

    monica, rats? I see them when I go to some mamak in SS2 and Uptown Damansara. But I think I hate cockroaches more! : )

    April 5, 2009 at 2:41 PM
  64. foongpc said...

    xin, I hate over crowded places too! : )

    synical, glad you agree with me! : )

    cashmere, no air con? Go get one! But good also if don't have, otherwise you age faster. LOL!
    You are still having the flu? You got to do something to boost your immune system. Last time I used to get flu for weeks and weeks! I hated it! But I learnt how to prevent it now - hmmm, maybe I will write a post on that, so stay tuned! : )

    April 5, 2009 at 2:45 PM
  65. foongpc said...

    life ramblings, same like bengbeng? You expect me to believe that not getting FC here is worse than the traffic jam or the slow internet connection? Haha! Won't believe it in a 100 years! : )

    faisal admar, giving advice is always easy. Practising your what you preach is a different matter altogether. Haha!

    heidi, glad you enjoy your stay here! Also glad that you fell for my April Fools joke! Haha! You also like the Jesse McCartney song? Cool! : )

    foong speaks her mind, oh yeah I know Bangkok is notorious for traffic jams. That's why you must sit tuk-tuk when you are there. They weave in and out of traffic like pros!

    Haha! That's Streamyx motto? Finish lah like this!

    I'm hired? But I prefer to be paid in $$$ : )

    bengbeng, I know : )

    You and I share the same list of irritating things.. except for one. I love our hot & humid weather. I love places that feels like it's summer all the time.

    But I can do without our rainy season. Getting stuck in the rain, and walking on the wet road after the rain, irritates me though...
