You die and go to hell, but it’s not full on Hell. Just like a watered down version for people who were bad but not entirely evil. What’s happening there?

For me, you’re driving in a downtown setting and you only have <1 mile to your destination but the estimated time of arrival is still 15 minutes. You don’t know why until you realize there’s a million cars and stoplights in front of you. This happened to me in Indianapolis years ago.

You turn on the TV and every channel is the Jardiance commercial with the fat chick singing and dancing about diabetes.

Great thread.

I'm forever sitting at a dining table eating with loud eaters (remember my old co-worker?).

As a fan of horror, mob and other sorts of violent and profanity-laden films, I get to watch all of them I want...but cut down to run on broadcast TV where I have to deal with regular commercial breaks and the movies are edited to hell.

Mine would be constantly driving behind someone with an "In Memory Of" sticker on their back window.  


Less of a minor inconvenience, but more of an annoyance.

^^ mine would be mostly driving related too.


Getting stuck behind people driving/walking too slow, utilizing all roundabouts as a four-way stop, etc.

Good point. Being a Jets fan is my hell.

Definitely all of these. Also someone is riding my ass in traffic, but not super aggressively, they're just right in that spot where you start to get annoyed.

My real life one would be I’m stuck in an airport, walking with purpose wherever I need to go, and people just constantly stop in the middle of the terminal.

Every day in MIH (minor inconvenience hell) your neighbor is having a tree cut down and all day all you hear is chainsaws and woodchippers running. The next day the tree grew back and it’s being cut down again.

And they happen to start doing the work roughly 45 minutes before you plan to wake up.

Your roommate in hell is a person who interrupts every conversation by bringing the discussion back to himself/herself and segues into a story from his or her life that is bigger and better than the original teller’s.


Example:


PERSON A: I just attended a lecture by Phil Knight, the founder of Nike, and he….

ROOMMATE IN HELL: (Interrupting) I just saw Air, that movie about how Nike signed Jordan. I actually met Jordan once at a golf outing at Pebble Beach.  Fucking beautiful course.  I only played it because my company picked up my greens fee so I could network…


You get the drift.

Tiernan is unbanned. I was actually thinking about his bullshit the other day.

Tiernan: I was at the OSU national championship game

Us: prove it. Post pics.

Him: no why should I. I didn’t take any. My phone was dead. I don’t have to prove anything to you guys.

I'm at a trade show that's a neverending circle jerk.

I’m attending one next week.  Would rather stick needles in my eyes.

I’m in the process of interviewing and I’m contemplating giving a hard no to trade shows. Not sure if that will hurt me or not, but I’m willing to role the dice. 

I’ve done my time.
