    People that open up with "You don't have..." as the beginning to their query as to whether or not we have an item. Truly our educational systems are sinking ships if this is considered a proper way to phrase a question. I'd rather hear the people who come in and bemoan about how disgusting everything is, at least they are amusing to witness.

    Hey. You can just answer: "That is a keen observation my good sir!" and just leave it at that.

    There's a lot of sarcastic replies I could give, but the sad truth is half of them would likely go over their head and they would simply restate their imbecilic question. I could also throw them out of the store, but none of these things mentioned is appropriate behavior.

    Especially inconsistent or flaky people. I know my standards can be a bit high sometimes but even the barest modicum of reliability seems to elude some people. I give so much leeway and the benefit of the doubt and some still can't be arsed to try. The excuses I've gotten are always so...amusing.

    The only thing left that you can do in these situations is to exude some good old disdain for plebs
    You cannot believe how much it brightens your days

    On the contrary, I can.

    It's like they say they have something really interesting to say. Than they don't say what it is unless you give them all the attention they desire in the whole effin world.

    Utterly annoying.
    I have a friend who likes to start out a story with:

    "You wanna know something funny?"

    I sit there waiting through his looong story waiting for the "funny" part...
    And it never comes. Apparently it's just a thing he says, whether his story is funny or not. :T

    Another thing that annoys me is that the "story" is usually some drawn-out explanation of some YouTube video that's only funny if you actually watch it (and sometimes, not even then).

    Furry puns make me want to choke a penguin.

    Ah, that's one of the things I was forgetting... Agreed.

    Also, not really pun-related I suppose, but it kind of bugs me when furries refer to real people with animal words on a regular basis ("paws" instead of hands, "mates" when referring to partners/significant others... That sort of thing).

    So... are Australians furries then? Or people? I am confused, mates.
