So The Daily Post is asking it’s subscribers to comment upon which vices they simply cannot abide. Being a man who indulges his vices excessively (so much so that I’ve begun locking up certain cites), I’m not in much of a position to comment upon how other people handle their’s. For the sake of an interesting post though, I can name a few.
First and foremost: Bitching about a website or it’s users on the damn website.
You get this a lot on reddit, imgur, and facebook. And basically anywhere on the net I guess. Long term users will inevitably dislike some varying trend or paradigm shift and feel as though their ethos from being a long term user should grant them sometype of authorityor control over other people’s experiences.
But it doesn’t. So they bitch and moan. A lot. In wholly nonconstructive ways. But the thing is, they never leave. No one is forcing you to stay on the damn site, no one is forcing you to click content you don’t want to, and most of these places are actually (to a degree) democratic and give you just as much of a vote as everyone else.
Secondly: Blasting the music your personal playing so loud that it can be heard feet away.
I am attached at the ears to my big comfy headphones. I basically just wrote a whole damn post on the matter. And what I am listening to I’m usually listening to loudly enough that I don’t hear much of what’s going on around me. That being said, I could take my headphones off, lay them speaker up on my table, and I still wouldn’t be subjecting the girl on the next couch over to Mogwai’s squealy guitar and shrieking feedback.
Because that would be rude.
Basically, whatever you choose to listen to is what you choose to listen to. And if you are striving to achieve early deafness, well that’s your prerogative. The two combined in public, whether through a set of headphones or a ridiculously over priced car stereo or what have you, is inconsiderate to pretty much everyone you pass you might be trying to listen to peace and quiet.
Thirdly and finally: Disregarding the rules of the running track.
I know, I know, the net is already full of dudes who bitch and moan about gym edicute and most of them are huge assholes. But seriously, there’s like 2 rules on the running track and they hang them on banners from the ceiling. It’s impossible to stay ignorant of them for more than a lap or two.
1. Slower people to the inside, faster folks outside.
2. Clockwise odd days, counter-clockwise on even days.
It’s a simple set of rules, but somehow there is always someone walking the wrong way on the outside when I try to do a sprinting workout. Isn’t this a small/petty thing that isn’t really worth getting upset about?? Yes, but I kinda figured the petty things was what this daily prompt was all about. If you want to hear about the more complicated issues I have problems with, I’m happy to oblige you.
