Things that upset you (in general)

Exactly. Or just hide the post, if you don't like it. Easier said than done. Unfollowing hurts no one and neither does post hiding on your own feed.

I just had a follower on Twitter not-so-subtly complain about me posting a certain kind of content, which brings me to this: why do people think that every single tweet must be catered to them?

If you don't like the stuff I'm posting, just unfollow and buzz off. It's that easy.

Some people get offended at the most ridiculous things ever. I saw someone get all offended and throw a hissy fit just because someone disagreed with them wanting keeping Pokémon a kids only franchise before on Facebook before. The other person was actually being polite and said that it should be for everyone and the original poster blew up. And this was in a Pokémon fan group.

So many women have suffered at the hands of Imperial Japan, especially the women tricked to be sex slaves. Despite all the hardship they've had to deal with, some are willing to forgive. Which is why it upsets me that there are disrespectful individuals who would call these victims as simply liars or prostitutes. That they would rather point the finger at someone else so they can seem less monstrous themselves. If that is not cowardice, I do not know what is.

Unfortunately that is true for a lot of cases involving sex crimes and victims forced to become sex workers. People like to blame the victim instead of trying to empathize with them and take the steps to end the practice of sex slaves.

Kids at school who equate my being left-leaning with being a socialist or a Communist. Really aggravates me to no end.
That and the constant barrage of negativity I get from reading the news. It’s depressing. This is why I like visiting the Pokémon forums here; it’s positive.

I wouldn't say this quite "upsets" me, per se, but I definitely have a pretty cool attitude towards it. And that is the existence of friend groups that aren't co-ed, or consist of mainly one gender. Girls really only wanting to hang with girls and guys really only wanting to hang with guys grinds my gears.

I remember posting stupid stories on this website when I was a kid and some people bullying me. The posts probably still exist! I’m not so bothered by it now as I have perspective but there is a weird messed up feeling thinking about how people could target someone like that and get enjoyment from it and how many other kids could have basically been their victims. It is unsettling to think of how many people could be out there and thriving off of bringing people down, especially when it seems like someone is going for younger kids for the vulnerability and ability to manipulate their feelings.

I really never liked how people try to making that lying is always wrong which it actually isn’t. Sure you shouldn’t do i5 all the time but there are times when it is necessary such as not spoiling a special surprise that everyone else had been working hard on for months and you ruin it because you didn’t want to lie to the recipient of the supposed surprise when they question you about it or if you know your safety or someone else’s safety is in danger and you know telling the truth could get you hurt or killed. There is a thing as being too honest and that can be even worse than lying. I was actually punished several times for being too honest and that really confused me to the point I was too afraid to tell people the truth but also knew that I shouldn’t lie. I ruined surprises and hurt people’s feelings many times because of the “never tell lies” rule. Stories such as Pinocchio try to make the dilemma of telling the truth as being black or white. Sometimes it isn’t that simple and the truth is far worse than telling a lie would be. For example, say you are kidnapped and being held at gunpoint. You are told that you won’t get hurt if you tell the kidnappers your bank account number and PIN. Your bank account is all the money that you have and you need it to pay for your college tuition. Do you tell the kidnappers what they want to know and lose everything and possibly become homeless because now you can’t pay for rent or do you lie and possibly get killed for it? Not so simple, now is it? This has always bothered me.

People who who don't have manners. They drive me up a wall sometimes.

I am fully convinced that Gwyneth Paltrow is most definitely an extortionist with her website and needs to be stopped. She’s selling things you could literally get at Walmart for ridiculous prices and the items aren’t even worth that much! I mean there’s the $40 for ten hangers, $77 on a 10.5 ounce candle, $155 on a plain white t-shirt, $295 pair of jeans, $495 wrap pants, $495 short sleeve knit tee shirt dress that is totally plain, and $158 jogging pants with the matching sweatshirt being sold individually also at $158. That is absolutely nauseating that she tricks people into buying these things and she gets a profit of the sale! She plays mind games with her victims by convincing them that they can only have a fulfilled life if they buy a pair of $500 jeans from her website.

Her audience is the wealthy. People who are more than willing to spend money on all the above, but for the most part are unwilling to tip fairly, let alone well for services. Any exceptions aside, a lot of them are absolute spendthrifting, pennypinching, cheapskates.

The strange thing is I blocked and muted her and others on Twitter yet I keep getting emails about what they’ve posted. I just want to shove a pair of those overpriced pants down her throat and duct tape her hands together just to shut her up and make her stop using Twitter.

Strange. Have you tried muting certain words and phrases to see if that helps any? Also, you can turn off notifications so you don't have to see them.

I'll double check to be sure on it though.

Where is there positivity? Most of the stuff I see in the forums are posts like Pokémon sucks, Game Freak doesn’t listen to the fans, the anime sucks, SWSH are the worst games in existence, Pokémon should be on the same level as Breath of the Wild, or how Goh’s the worst character in existence

Students who are very obviously cheating in the back of the room during exam time. Just makes my life harder when I get to kick the out my class. Of course, they'll yell gender and racial discrimination until I counter with threats to slap them with a subpoena.

Try to understand.
Modern day transphobia bothers me.

If a transphobic joke exists in a 90s movie, it sucks, but I could at least acknowledge it was during a less informed time.

However, in modern day times, we should know better, and it sickens me that people will make jabs at a group of people with their own identity.
There were some Facebook groups I quit because of this.

That same coworker made me pretty angry again last night at work and I’m definitely filing a complaint against her. For two weeks my knee has been hurting and I do not know why and I went to my PCP last Monday and he gave me some pills to take twice a day to ease the pain. Well I usually take a pill with me to work to take as soon as I feel my knee locking up but I forgot to bring one yesterday. I was up on my feet for two and a half hours and my knee started to hurt and I told the cook that I needed to rest for awhile because he knows my knee has been bothering me lately. Well this girl walks by and see me and says with an attitude, “Why are you in here slacking off instead of being in the dish room?” And then she kept walking by. I was on my phone only to set up reminders for the extra shift the cook wanted me to do 9n Sunday and about the time for my second Covid vaccine on Friday which is at a really odd time as it is nearly three hours before I typically come into to work which means I have to come in and leave only to return again a couple of hours later. So the girl then proceeds to tell the other girl I don’t like working with about how I was “slacking off” and I heard the conversation. That really made me angry and I was so close to going up to the first girl and screaming at her to mind her own (explicative) business while slapping her hard enough to leave a mark. My medical problem isn’t any of her business to begin with and how dare she call me a slacker when she spends more than half of the shift on her own phone?! What I do is none of her concern and I have had just about enough of her attitude. She’s lucky that I’m still showing up to work with a knee that’s been bothering me because I know how short staffed we are right now in the kitchen. None of us besides these two girls don’t even like this particular girl who has a serious attitude problem and we’ve all had enough of her behavior and rude comments. She actually told one of the new coworkers that he wasn’t needed and that he should just quit. I don’t even really need this job to be honest because my dad is financially secure enough to give me some money every now and then just to make it through the month and I get a monthly check from the government. I mainly keep this job for extra money to keep in the bank just in case I ever need something that is extremely pricey such as surgery or to save up to go on a small vacation and also because it gets me out of my apartment and gives me a sense of purpose and I enjoy helping out because I know that I am helping the elderly in my own small way and that to me is worth the frustration of wearing a mask and face shield that is both uncomfortable and hard to see out of. I am not going to quit because of that little witch but I am also not going to have her continue to say such rude things to me either. I am done putting up with her BS.
