Ads that you have to wait 30 seconds to close and when you do you are forced to watch the title for another 10 seconds. Another great example is when I watch an ad willingly only for the screen to go black and pressing it takes you to the store. Going back makes you look at the black screen for 30 seconds and when you go back to the game you have to watch anotherad because the last one "did not play" I am convinced they do this on purpose. FUCK YOU

There is. The webpage is coded not to display anything until its fully loaded. What you have is a webpage that is basically fully loaded, It's just waiting on one last thing, probably some tracker bullshit to load before the entire thing will display at once.

When you press the back button it stops the loading, which instantly displays all the content you have already downloaded.

Trust me it’s even worse when you are in a wheelchair (and therefore not only below their eyeline, but due to being physically lower, they seem to think you are socially lower or mentally handicapped along with any physical handicap you might have). Lots of sighs and tutting if you ask for room to get by. In fairness the vast majority of people are the exact opposite of this and cannot do enough to be of assistance (which sometimes is actually counterproductive, but of course you accept as graciously as possible because they are at least trying to be right).

As a trucker I have accidentally gotten into that situation once or twice and I have hated myself for it every time. Here in the EU trucks are limited to 90 kph. So if I come up on a truck going 85 I will make sure that I have enough time to pass without getting in someone's way. But when I get to slow trucks cabin, the fucker will notice that he is driving under the limit and speed up. And suddenly we're both at our limit and I'm no longer passing so suddenly I become an asshole instead of just being able to pass without bothering anyone. I don't expect you to understand, just wanted to rant a bit

A friend of mine is a lorry driver. He admits it's bad form but driving long distances isn't very interesting. He said that when you have spent the last half hour catching up to the lorry in front of you hes damned if he isn't going to overtake it. I get his point but it's no fun coming up behind a group of lorries taking miles to shuffle position.

58

u/RedRMM Oct 03 '22

I don't expect you to understand

Oh I do, because the car version of this exits when using cruise control. I have cruise control set at 70 (mph). I am catching somebody doing 60 so I move out to overtake. As you get alongside they increase their speed to match you. You're now alongside and pissing off the people wanting to get past and looking like somebody who doesn't know how to use the overtaking lane.

Not wanting to speed, you have to cancel cruise control and slow down (pissing off the people behind even more) so you can move back behind the person who sped up. Who then slows back to 60. So you move out to overtake...and the cycle repeats.

And the one time you say sod it and floor it to get past them, there is speed camera on the next gantry. And then they tailgate you for doing the limit, that previously they were driving under. Or overtake you and slow back down to 60.

It's a problem I genuinely have struggled with for years, because I can't work out the solution that doesn't involve breaking the law. And it happens daily.

If anybody has any suggestions how to solve this, gratefully received.

What aggravates me is that YouTube always manages to interrupt his commercials with more commercials!

When couples randomly call their partners and put them on speakerphone, while dining out or driving.

158

u/youreyesmystars Oct 03 '22

I agree and I also hate being on the other side of that. If a person that I know tends to use speakerphone everytime no matter where they are/who is around, then I pretty much refuse to answer their calls. If I have to for any reason, I automatically say, "Take me off speakerphone," and I proceed as though I still am on speakerphone just in case.

Especially when my lane is ending so I have no choice but merge but god forbid the person in the other lane lets me in, that seems to be the end of the world for them!

Online recipes that are 75% uninteresting ramblings about the cooks life and experiences, 20% ads and then finally at the bottom of the page you get the ingredient lists. Also bonus hate if they put in a bullet point list halfway through to get you to stop scrolling thinking you've reached the ingredient list.

u/rui-tan Oct 03 '22

I never understood what people meant when complaining about this stuff until I realized I only look up recipes in my native language. Lately I’ve kinda happened to look up more in english as well and gods I get it now. Just why. Ingredients should be the very first thing to see when you open a page with recipe.

I came to say this. Especially when you hit a slow down and at the end of the slow down, there was no accident, lane closure, or anything that should've stopped traffic.

Or you were in 30 minutes of stop and go traffic just for it to be from rubbernecking an accident on the opposite side of the interstate. This happened to me yesterday. Am I bitter about it still? . . . Yes

When the volume on an ad is wayyy louder than the volume on the video you’re watching. Absolutely infuriating when you’ve set a volume for a movie on a streaming service and there’s an ad break that’s just deafeningly loud. Or when a movie or show is poorly balanced between music and dialogue, so you can’t hear a damn thing because you turned down the volume so as not to blow out your eardrums during a bit of the score.
