    BMW drivers talking on the phone while taking up the whole fucking road and not looking where they are going.

    Cunts.

    Definitely a grumpy old man moment for me.

    I hate it when you take an Italian riot grrrl with a beehive to some pizza joint which is trying to be classy, and you each order "garlic bread" for starters, and then the bloke brings over two plates - each the size of a pizza - with doughy garlic bread discs that look like cowpats and each of which could feed a family of six. You feel like yelling, "For fuck's sake, why did you let us order two when one would have been too much? Couldn't you have just said "They're not like the stuff you get in Pizza Hut?"". Do I have to ask everything round here?

    The . in 'alt.country'. For fuck's sake, WHY? It's not part of a URL, is it? Sheesh.
    In fact, I'm going to nominated the very concept of 'alt.country' in its entirety.

    Also, you sometimes see a company described (historically, perhaps) as a '.dotcom'. Now say it out loud: dotdotcom. What the fuck is a dotdotcom? It's even worse than 'PIN number' (personal identification number number).

    AND ANOTHER THING: the phrase "both the same". How can one thing be 'the same'? The "both" is totally redundant. Gah.

    And don't get me fucking started on "could of"/"should of", misplaced apostrophes, 'definately', 'lazer', 'euthenasia'...

    uptight euro upper class rigid little rules for every social function - how to dress, what shoes to wear with what jacket in what season. especially when it comes to dining - why oh why are you horrified if i have another helping of pasta AFTER i finish my creme brule??!! there is a midnight sausage snack coming up in 20 minutes ANYWAY.

    in China everyone rich or poor slurps their noodles. and that's the way it should be!

    Does anyone outside of actual royal families still behave like that, though? Have you slipped through a timewarp into the 1920s?

    Also, people in China eat dog's-dick soup, doesn't mean it's a good thing...

    was at a fancy party last night and this girl was like "OK I don't know you" (half jokingly) after i took the post-desert pasta. i was also wearing an all white outfit, with light-beige jacket and hat, thinking it's a summer time party and everything -- but all other males in the room were weating dark suits (maybe white is strickly for brunches and afternoon tea and when it comes to dinner, no matter what season, guys should wear dark colors?), so i got a few funny looks.

    ettiquitte and decorum can be well elegant and fun, but sometimes it's a bit oppressive.

    re: dog dick in China - only a tiny little region of the country traditionally has dog and cat on the menu, as a delicasee, like bird's nest soup or shark fin, though now it's become more popular in the big cities because of tourism. and that's another western stupid: just because it's cute we shouldn't it? baby chickens, cows, pigs are all cute. hypocrites!

    (the japanese eating dolphins, how ever, is utterly abhorrent)

    You're surely not trying to tell us that there's no formal dining conventions among upper class society in the east... come on..

    I'm guessing that Mr Tea has a problem with eating dick, not the fact that dogs are cute.
