What are things that happen at college that bother you like nothing else?

- People who shave in the bathroom and fail to rinse out the sink
- When you're depending on the bus to get you to class and it ends up being full
- When your roommate locks his key in the room and you have to come to the rescue

    - people who can't sit still for an hour, and shift around a lot... resulting in them kicking my seat 30 times in an hour.

    (seriously. almost turned around and smacked the girl behind me today)

    - When people try to get on an already crowded bus. Seriously, there is clearly no room left. So the bus is stalled there for a minute or two because people are so determined to squeeze in but the doors can't close.
    - When the bus ticker at the bus stop says that a specific bus will be arriving in 2 minutes and then a few seconds later it switches to 12 minutes. What the heck?
    - People who talk in lecture hall when you are trying to hear the teacher speaking.

    -People who fail to shower or brush their teeth before an 8 am class
    -People who are lazy and lack ambition then wonder why they are failing
    -Roomate crying all night long and acting like your crazy when you ask if she is okay
    -People who just run by when you are holding the door to be polite

    College is not what i expected. There are some disturbed people out there.

    -when a bus waits for 5 minutes, nobody is there. then when the bus is about to leave people chase after it and want to get on, when clearly another bus will come in a few minutes.
    -the occasional person who sleeps through their alarm and the whole floor can hear it

    How about when a kid who is distracted on the phone decides when the bus driver closes the door "Oh crap! This is my stop!" and starts banging the door for the bus driver to open it up to let them out.

    Or when a kid is running towards the bus because they are going to be late for class and the bus driver closes it on their face and drives off. Or when a bus never comes!!!! Or after waiting 30 minutes in the bitter cold, the bus comes, goes to one stop, and decides to go "Out of Service" when you are desperately trying to get back to your dorm at 12:30 at night so now you have to wait another 20 minutes for a bus.

    Actually, most of the things that peeve me in college is the transportation. The buses suck and they keep getting worse each year :(

    Ahh this annoys me. My chem exams are always on livingston campus until 11:40 pm and at least 3 buses come past and are out of service :( then it takes forever for the actual bus to come lol

    People who are on Facebook on their laptops for the entire duration of a lecture. Why bother going in the first place?
    Bikers who think that they have right of way and get ****ed whenever someone crosses their path. You're on a BIKE, not in a car, chill out.
    People who take forever at the salad bar in the dining hall.
    Online homework.
    Rude people on busses who see that the bus is clearly filling up yet they place their backpack on the empty seat next to them.

    Know it alls (this is especially pervasive in the humanities) who don't bother to raise their hand and blurt out their "earth-shattering," new synopsis on what Milton meant in the poem, but clearly they are wrong.

    There's a girl in my class who interrupts the professor at least three times a day to "refine" whatever point he is trying to conceptualize. Students like that, I would just love to say: "You know what, since you're such an expert, why don't you teach the class?"

    ^There were like six kids like that in my international relations class at CC. It got to the point where the professor would just stare around helplessly waiting for them to **** so he could actually teach the class. It drove me nuts. Even if what they were saying was true, if the professor either didn't know or chose not to mention it it's obviously NOT going to be on the test, so let's all just shut up and let the man prepare us for the exam himself. XD

    I've never had that happen now that I am at my university. Maybe people are too intimidated. I hope so, they should be.

    helplessly waiting for them to ... what? O_O?
    edit: oh wait i know what you mean now i kinda thought of **** as an actual word... eehehe

    anyways,
    #1 - people who DON'T WASH THEIR HANDS after peeing holy **** i always have to paper towel open doors because i at least rinse with water after everytime i pee and man what's the point of washing if you're just gonna get ***** fingers again
    #2 - people on bikes who don't yield for pedestrians at crosswalks, people on bikes who ride at >15 mph on sidewalks and always shave right past you so many opportunities for hurt there, people on bikes that can't coast
    #3 - public/communal bathrooms in general - after ~20 years of practice, you would've thought guys would learn how to aim, huh? :/
    #4 - people who smoke and kill my brain cells because i suffocate having to hold my breath

    I had said the abbreviation for shut the eff up. lol. it bleeped it out.

    People who are loud at night in the dorms is probably my biggest pet peeve. Usually they arent, there arent parties in here or anything, but people don't seem to realize when they are walking down the hall at 4am that there is a person sleeping four feet away from them just on the other side of the door, so, you know, it would be the non *******ish thing to do to talk quietly. Or I live next to the lounge with the piano in it and people play the piano late at night.

    ^ I lived in a very small dorm last semester. So small that you could hear the piano on the first floor being played.

    I wouldn't have mind the piano playing at night if the person didn't play the SAME FREAKIN' SONG OVER AND OVER AGAIN. Jeez Christmas! I wasn't crazy about the song "Don't Stop Believin'", but now I truly hate it -_-
