Things That Annoy Me

Please note the title of this post. Once noted, please do try to keep said title in mind as you read the rest of this post. Otherwise, things may not make much sense. Also, keep in mind that this list is by no means final or all encompassing. It simply takes note of things that annoy me today.

And now, without further ado:

People who text message.
People who think comics are just for kids.
People who think comics are just for grownups.
People who IM throughout the workday.
People who hand out "healthy alternatives" on Halloween.
People who use acronyms like LOL, ROFL, and...well OK...acronyms, period.
People who are embarrassed to read a comic book in public.
DC Comics and their quite firm "no job for Alex" stance.
When this blog only receives one or two hits in a day.
When things I want to buy are way too expensive for me to afford.
Undecided voters.
Dirty or disorganized comic book shops.
Parents who are convinced their child will play for the Yankees.
When comics ship on a Thursday due to a holiday.
Building a new stadium when the old one is perfect.
Rain in Baltimore (true Exfanding fans will get that one!)
Late comics.
On-time comics that are of poor quality.
Mets fans.
When Congress bails out Wall Street.
When comics publishers are more concerned with having a "name" writer or artist on a book than they are with having a quality story.
Comics that don't strive to be more.
Complacency in any form.
Creators that fall back on their laurels.
People who think Kevin Smith is a hack.
Marvel Zombies, DC Fanboys, and Indie Snobs.
Comics shop owners who just don't care.
Comics publishers who only care about making movies and toys.
"Town Hall"-style "debates."

And, finally, lists.

"late comics" would be... Ultimate Hulk vs Wolverine?

"on-time comics that suck" would be... All-Star Batman and Robin?
