people who answer statements with questions.

me: the sky is blue.
them: is that right ?

Or any of a dozen responses that are all questioning what you just said.
Damn that's annoying !

People who answer yes/no questions with a vague ambiguity.

Me: would you like a cup of coffee ?
them: are you having one ?

it's a bloody yes or no question, did I say: "would you like a cup of coffee, just be aware I won't actually make you one unless I want one myself and I had a cup about 10 minutes ago, so it's unlikely I will actually make you a cup of coffee. Not sure why I even bothered asking. "

I've more or less trained my mate to just say yes or no.
Anything else and I don't make him one Smiley

    Awards shows.  TV, music, and  movie people get all dressed up and tell each other how great they are for a couple of hours.  I'll pass.

And they'll shove the thing full of adverts. I've heard the Oscars as a show is dying and it doesn't surprise me at all. Anyone that does care can just check Twitter or some news website after the show is over and the thing itself is so long! Absolutely pointless waste of time and, as you said, just serves to stroke egos that are already massive.

   I live in a land of ignorant, lazy slobs. There is litter everywhere in New Jersey.  Other places not that far from here are nothing like this. I've been throughout New England and there is virtually no trash there.  Of course they have a deposit on bottles and cans there which helps but that's just a part of it.  I don't know why but people are just slobs around here. Every day I walk past the public trash cans around my little Lake Renee. Every day there is trash just a few feet from those cans thrown on the ground. It's like that all over the state. The wind almost always blows west to east here. Unfortunately we are on the east end of the lake.  There is always an endless supply of trash blown to our shore. I mean LOTS of trash. The little woods near me is full of trash.  There is trash all over our beautiful Pinelands. I could go on.
    I don't know why there are so many slobs per square mile here.  If you're heading south from New  England it seems to start as you approach New York City. From there south it's the Land of the Slobazoids. It doesn't seem to peter out until you get well into Maryland.  I have no theory as to why people are such pigs around here.  It certainly pisses me off.

    The water that initially comes out of squeeze bottles of mustard and catsup that gets all over your bread and makes it soggy.

I am with you on that one "Kick"
I don't mind it to much if given its correct French pronunciation.

Up in maine it's a ton of lazy people.  I just had a conversation about this at work last night with a coworker.  At home this locals are hard workers, but at their place of employment they are lazy. I work matience,  and am constantly cleanly up after grown adults. Not talking big spills, but little little shit, for example the employee breakroom.  Meets messy people

youtube videos and television shows that are people being filmed 'reacting' to things they are watching on the tv or youtube.

WHY ?????????????????

I think the best are  the elderly or children reacting to certain music.  I find it hilarious.  For example 80 yo people listening to heavy metal music, like slipknot. Facial expressions and reactions are classic.

When you're reduced to watching other people watch videos - you seriously need a hobby !

Is it much better to be having a discussion about reactions to people watching videos of people reacting to YouTube videos?
Slingers react to Youtubers React... it could be the next big hit on YouTube!  LOL
