The Top Ten

They're the ultimate source of frustration during Summer. They bite you, leave itchy bites, make that annoying buzz when flying, you can't get rid of them, they spread deadly diseases, kill livestock, lay lots of eggs, hatch within hours, and reproduce like they're going extinct.
I live in Georgia and these the** mosquitoes just HAVE to ruin my July cookout party. Quick get the repellent. Take that you west nile spreading bitches!
More than 130 bites when I went back to my beautiful country... Colombia... But it was because I was without a shirt most of the time... And I didn't used any repellent
[Newest]Why were bugs period ever even made? All they do is bite people, sting them, annoy them and scare little kids! The only animals necessary to the universe are humans, dogs, bunnies, horses, small birds, and maybe cows. I don't even care much for honey, so bees could just vanish and I won't care. Their lives are useless and miserable. They have wings, yet they could barely carry their stupid fat bodies around! Plus, they sting someone, they die. How hard is it not to hurt or harm someone who isn't bothering you?


2People who smoke around others
This is why someone invented a smoking area. If there is one USE IT! I don't want to choke over the scent of cigars while I'm eating my sandwich!
I hate that don't they realize second hand smoke causes lung cancer just as much as smoking does now nonsmokers will suffer and die because of smokers who can't smoke in a SMOKE area
I hate the cigarette smell it's disgusting and they always spit
[Newest]I hate the smell of smoking and the risk of secondhand smoke. I hate it so much that I hold my breath around a smoker. SMOKE ALONE we are not interested to smell your cancer device.

3People who walk really slow in front of you
Or worse... When they STOP right in front of you when you're trying to get somewhere... ARGH!


People do this in the school hallways and our school is TINY. It's so annoying! They just get in your way, it's like "Uhh, don't you have a class to get to? " I hate it!
It's so annoying when people do this!... It's like move! I want to go somewhere today, not in about a years time!
[Newest]Oh god, that sucks.

4Justin Bieber
I was looking and looking. I found it. The most annoying voice on the planet. It sounds like a terrified buffalo. I want to seriously get the chance to meet this... Thing, so I can tell it how much I hate its music and how it killed REAL music.
I have a daily ritual. I made a tombstone in memory of good music, and I dance to good music every day in front of it. And its all because of justin bieber
Ignore the stuff on the list that says bullies, mosquitos, etc. Justin Bieber is why the music industry sucks. If anyone would listen to Imagine Dragons's "Monster", The XX's "Tides", or old music like how 'bout "Tragedy" by Bee Gees I'd be so happy. Justin Bieber is like "I'm so cool" well guess what? You're an idiot who's desperate for girls. He should've gone to jail faster. It's like with Selena Gomez. I've hated her since the first episode of Wizards. She's so stupid and you would only like her because of how pretty she is! AND SHE'S UGLY! IT'S MAKE UP MORONS! And now, she's on drugs and drinking. Justin's fans are so stupid. I bet they are irresponsible teens who leave their house in a normal outfit, change into tiny shorts and a crop top (ugh kill me), and party. Like, wow, how about those grades of yours?

Justin Bieber pushes teens into become little idiots who you want to kill. This is coming from a 11 year old who has to walk by teens who curse all the time. I live in NY so the schools are different.


[Newest]It feels like a demon singing. HORROR1

The only one I know is really bad at it. I'm not sure if this makes him funny, or even more annoying


They ruined middle school for me. I can't even look at that building without having bad memories rushing back to me. They ruin people's lives for literally no reason besides that they're bored and jealous. There is nothing more annoying in life than dealing with one of these people. Even worse, millions of people have committed suicide because of nasty comments from bullies. There is absolutely no excuse for that.
Bullies push you around and do mean stuff and make fun of you. Bullies make you emberassed.


[Newest]Oh please, this has to go before Mosquitos! Bullies are awful people with the mere purpose of ruining your life and even making you question your value in this world. I know cause I've been through this. It sucks,

This should include all forms of behaviour that make other people life hard or harder! Any form of behaviour that makes it so that other people can't or don't enjoy their lives! Any form of behaviour that makes it so that other people don't feel safe or have difficulty or unwanted, unneeded, unneccessary distractions from going about their own lives!
Terrorists Hit The Twin Towers. Those People Ruined Peoples Lives! Those Basterds.
They kill innocent people. Because of them afghanistan, Somalia, pakistan and pretty much the middle east and africa are now killing zones. If you want Americans and Israelis out of you land killing your own people as well is not going to help.
Yes, that is right. However, there were American terrorists too. It isn't just limited to people from the Middle East, terrorists are everywhere
[Newest]They should just detonate themselves to be honest

I voted for this because of what the Republican party is turned into. If I had to draw a picture representing the Republican party, it would be a fat, 50-something, Southern, overly-religious, man, wearing a white cowboy hat and yelling crap about gay marriage and how Obama is the Antichrist. If Mitt Romney is elected, I swear I will move to Canada.
I'm a libertarian and I think republicans are even more annoying than democrats. Republicans just hypocritically babble about how they want to downsize the government, then they try to take control of marriage, attempt to ban abortion, continue a hopeless war against drugs, etc.. At least the democrats admit that they're going to inflate the government.
Bravo! Although I have to say I do think Democrats are just as annoying. Long story short, they both suck!


Way worse than terrorists... Way too much propaganda about them


[Newest]They don't want to move forward with anything and hold on to tradition

More comments about Republicans

8Email spam
I just hate them so much... They always take everyone's valuable time and many of them aren't useful.
I don't have an Email account but this sounds pretty annoying.


I have a friend that takes advantage that she can message me and is posting random subjects like 'i like tings' or'lines of death. '


Music is too subjective to be on this list, personally I am not a fan of the music however I have listened to enough of it to know that it is not all about violence and money - try again
Rap promotes violence and is about money and stuff that songs should not be written about. What happened to good musicians like the beatles and led zeppelin.
Yall say Rap is Bad. Country music Really sucks. Country singers just talking about girls and having sex and and getting drunk and their girl dumps them they throw beercans at both of her shadows. Luke Bryan Jason Aldean and those other male singers are nothing but trash they just talking about having sex and getting Drunk on girls. at least on Rap they talk about other stuff besides girls Go Rap.
Actually rap is way worse lyric wise. I never hear country singers cuss as much as rappers do.
[Newest]Have you heard lose yourself by Eminem or changes by Tupac. Haters

10Getting in a slow line at the bank/supermarket etc..
...and watching the others lines move forward.
Ugh! Especially when my mom forces me to come grocery shopping, and the line we are in seems to be the slowest one!


Ah...then you may want to check out my list: Top Ten Amusing Things to do to Break The Boredom in a Long Post Office Queue...


This is why I love self serve tills, less standing behind someone nattering on a mobile while being served at a checkout. In a slow line I feel like yelling "COME ON ALREADY"!
[Newest]I hate slow lines.

The Contenders

11Screaming Babies
They won't shut up, and every time you ignore them, they just scream louder. They don't know when to quit.
I love babies! They play and make cute noises, but when they cry... UGH I will get my belt and smack their butts.
What had babies done to you. They're babies, not rabies. It's so fun taking care of them. I know, adults hate it, but when a baby's happy, it radiates warmth and happiness around you.


[Newest]Babies are a menace! I'm so glad to be an only child.

Why are a lot of people racist? Why do some people only care about their own race? I hate racism! In fact, everyone should & it should be a crime. Let me tell you a few things that are so racist that they bother me. It's just two things, so basically I don't feel any racism around me. The first I'm going to talk about isn't that much of a big deal. I just feel like it might be a little overboard. Anyways, my younger brother & I are half Asian & half Hispanic people that were born in Texas. I'm not really racist, but my brother's friends & him, well, I feel like they're racist. Kids at school once like to make jokes about him because he's half Asian. They didn't really care about his Hispanic side. Not only did they make jokes about him because he's half Asian, they also made fun of each other. Apparently, they like to make fun of their own races, so that means my brother & kids from his school are racist. I feel like this should stop. If they keep it up with their racist jokes, a teacher might catch one. Now, for the other thing. I feel completely offended by this one. A lot of people say that Asians are "bad drivers". I even saw memes about how they make "horrible drivers". Why do a lot of people have to say that? If my father heard someone say that Asians are bad drivers, he'd feel offended because he's Asian & guess what? He can drive! What's wrong with you sick people saying that Asians are "bad drivers"? Asia is offended, my dad would be offended & I'm offended because I'm half Asian. The type of Asian I am is Vietnamese. Anyways, why must thing "Asians are bad drivers" thing be heard by many people? That's completely racist. My dad is Asian & he can drive like his brother. If they are Asians & can drive, I bet any other Asian can drive. Anybody can drive!

Asian people, African-American people, Mexican people, Canadian people, small people & big people all live on the same planet, and we need to get together & know that everyone on the planet is a part of it. Americans, Italians, and Canadians all live on the same planet, even if they have a different race. I feel humiliated to live with anybody that I don't know that is completely racist. So, let's spread the word & end racism forever & ever & ever & ever & ever & ever & ever! Don't be racist! Be like me & Mario. Mario is an Italian plumber created by Japanese video game developers. I'm a half Vietnamese, half Hispanic person born in Texas. No matter what race you are, please don't be racist. Martin Luther King Jr wanted black people to have freedom like us white people. If that's what he wanted, then we can do it & let's stop being racist. If anyone is listening to my words, then spread this.

There is a lot of evidence around them that they are wrong. UK, USA, China, Japan, Germany, Italy, Russia, India and many other countries are all very very different, but they are full of science, technology, music and many other aspects that are not that dissimilar! I know a lot of people of high abilities from many different places and of different religions. Racist arguments are inept, as they can see for themselves.


Racism is one of the worst characteristics at a person. People with so close-minded views are the reason why humanity cannot evolve and hold us back to perspectives of past centuries.
[Newest]I hate racist people they have a fatal flow where they want to be more powerful then other people.

13Non stop talkers
I have a friend that is talkative. I just hate that, she is like. "Hey, you know who I saw yesterday in the park? Erika. Remember her? She was my cousins girlfriend, that girl who used to be addicted to television. Television? I can't lose for a second time "American Idol". Janelle Arthur didn't win, can you believe that? Do you know who I think of when I see Janelle Arthur? She kinda looks like Marta. Remember Marta? She was my best friend in second grade. Remember second grade? I peed my pants once. I said my pants, I must not forget that I have to buy those amazing pants I saw on Marie Claire yesterday. Remember Marie Claire? It used to be my sisters' favourite magazine. Remember my sister? She's in New York now..." and blah blah blah.
No... I don't care about your views on politics. No... I don't care what the government does In Area 51. Yes, I do want you to stop talking. RIGHT NOW.
its almost like they are having a conversation with themselves, which I find annoying, but look at the positives in life... Right?!
[Newest]It's annoying when I told them my dog passed away they didn't care and kept on yapping

I suppose its annoying but it also all helps. Without war, the world would be over-packed with humans. Destructive humans. They cut down trees and make special animals extinct. After years and years, we'll finally make the atmosphere collapse and die. We need to cut down on humans in order for our species to live.
War is the worst thing it kills over millions of people, it is just horrible
Who made this one, hippies, there are reasons war happens
[Newest]It has also started on TheTopTens

... Reading this at 2 in the morning
I think it's actually worse when you wake up really early and can't go back to sleep.
If you are autistic then you have side-effects of insomnia, I can't sleep because of that.
[Newest]I have insomnia every night now, and it drives me crazy. '

16Lying politicians
This covers about all of them.


You might as well say, "politicians" because doesn't every politician lie?
This happend to me today. I was playing bowling with my friend and then my other friend came up so I put the pins up for her the way my friend did to me. Then she got all mad at me for no reason. I told her my friend set it up the same way I did then my other friend who I fist played with said that she diden't do that. I HATE LIE'S!
[Newest]Aren't all politicians lying politicians

They are annoying and they keep coming up in games
Especially when you're in school and the ad covers the part of the page you're trying to read, and the firewall blocks the part of the ad where you can exit out so I have to refresh the page a million times and read four words at a time.


They should ban all adverts that make you wait for something.


[Newest]This should be number 1

18Slow Internet Connection
Once (or sometimes), I waited 4 minutes to wait for a page because of this. I was really pissed. And when you play games, you either disconnect or have extremely high pings. Dammit man.


Sick of seeing that spiral rotating for hours on end just for something like a five minute YouTube video


It takes only 1 minute for it to upload but once I tried to get on but instead it took 20 minutes


[Newest]Wow. All you people are really materialistic. There are people voting for terrorism, war and death, and all you care about is how long a game takes to load? PERSPECTIVE!

19Over population
Too many people making too many problems.
Is that a lyric from genesis's land of confusion?
As soon we can travel to other planets, humans must rapidly spead out so earth won't end up like that city planet on star wars
GOOD NEWS: the uk average childrens per parent is not 1.7 down from 3.5 in the 1900s.


[Newest]This is becoming a huge issue

It's annoying when they call me to advertise stuff you don't need. They also stalk your email and call you like 24/7


It bugs the hell out of me when I pick up the phone and then they practically start yelling in your ear.


If you don't like this be like Seinfeld:
Answer yes when they ask you if you want the product, then hang up.
