Does anyone else get really annoyed with all these random sex scenes in movies? You're watching a movie, and a sex scene is thrown in, to "inhanse the plot" when just implying it happened would do just as well. It just seems unnecessary, and disturbing. Movies marketed as PG-13 have sex scenes in them... we just watched one in school today. *shudder* Can't we restrict it to the pornography industry, rather than putting it in every hollywood film possible?
I hate that too. Also, in the movie Babel (sp?) there was this japenense girl who, randomely for no plot reason whatsoever, walks around naked. For like, 10 minutes with nothing censored. I was like, WTF. WHY TEH RANDOM KEKIDNESS. Not necessary.

But it establishamentises the charact0r developments!!! Obviously when a character gets into bed with a person they've just met it shows the audience what an awesome hero/brilliant gun fighter/super secret spy/successful entrepreneur/free spirit/any other genre cliche/ they are. Obviously.

I think it's been around for awhile to. Didn't 80's horror films have a nudity quota they had to meet?

Common Tiffu. You know audiences don't want plot, or character interaction, or witty dialogue. They want teh n00ds. And sequels, lots of sequels.

Yes I hate that too. It gets to the point where it's just annoying especially if it's in the middle of an action. I mean, there's someone trying to hunt these two people down, so what's the best plan of action when you finally lose the person trying to kill you? Should you try to get further and further away? Nope, jumping in bed is the best plan of action!

I hate random nudity too, since it just seems to be thrown in there so every male in the theater can have something new to jerk off too, not because it actually has anything to do with the plot.

My silbings are going to see a movie.

This would be all fine and dandy if my parents didn't break their promise to me to take me to see "Nightmare Before Christmas" in 3-D.
Not that I would expect them too. They only broke their promises last year to let me see it. And the year before that.

And that my silbings saw a movie not that long ago, while the last time I was at the movies was to see transformers.

And Mom, just because you haven't been to the movies in 3 years doesn't make it my fault that your to lazy to get out of the house. You could have seen Grindhouse, or 300 or even transformers with us.

But you didn't.

And now I am grounded for trying to convince my parents they DID promise me they'd take me tomorrow. Not promise to take me last week.

Either way, I never got to go. -__-

I get really annoyed when everybody has to take things personally. Seems like I can't say anything to anyone without them feeling like I'm out to get 'em. This is why nothing ever gets done. People are too busy being offended over stupid shit. ¬_¬

You posted this because you're out to get me. Admit it.

XDD <3

Now for an annoyance of mine, having to do with my new job.

So i'm enjoying my new job...the people I work with are nice (especially upstairs in the tea room..It's a gift shop/tea room, and I work both areas), and I haven't had any sucky customers, really. The one thing that pisses me off a bit is their fucked up tipping system upstairs.

The upstairs manager (we shall call her T) is also basically the main server. Now, when the tea room is busy, I go upstairs and I serve, also. I do ALL of the things she does: take orders (which I was originally told I didn't need to do, but now I'm finding myself doing it), get/refill drinks, bring food, bus tables (which I actually do more than SHE does), and check people out.

HOWEVER.

When someone leaves a tip, for some reason she always ends up pocketing it. And it isn't like she does it on the sly...she's ALLOWED to keep all the tips. J, my boss and the owner, came up once to help us when we were particularly busy with a group of 25, and was fine with watching T take all the tips.

Why is it fair that I'm doing as much as she is (or in some cases, like today, MORE than she is), but yet I don't get any tips? It isn't like she's making a waitress's 2.50/hour wage..she's the manager. She makes more than I do. And yet, I get no part of the tips. Twice, i've gotten to keep tips.

Once, with the group of 25, J let me keep $5 becuase it was a huge group. Then, today, while T spent an HOUR visiting with her friends at a table, I busted my ass taking care of a table entirely by myself, completely cleaning/changing the linens and dishware on FOUR tables, and taking care of orders/check outs. So T I guess felt bad, so she let me keep the $2 some ladies left me. Gee, thanks.

Is it wrong that when I checked out a to-go order, I pocketed the $2 the lady handed me?

I don't think so.

And this is why I always wait until we've paid and are ready to go that I hand the tip directly to the waiter/waitress.

Right now I'm annoyed at my bank for a check, annoyed at my back, and happy that I can go back to work tomorrow.

The thing is, if they hand it to me, I still pretty much have to give it to her. It's bullshit.

Thats messed up Tiff, I hate the tip system in some places to. It seems like the people who truly bust their asses hardly ever see a share of the tips. And for you to work your tush off and still have to give the tip to someone who makes a decent wage already is bs. This T person sounds like someone who is too used to getting what she wants at the expense of others hard work.

I get annoyed when my father opens up my mail and looks at my bills and precedes to ask me questions about my finances. Uh, I'm an adult and I can pay my own bills, and my finanses are my business.

When my father tries to boss my older sister around when it comes to our own private squables. Most of the time he just makes it worse instead of majing things better because he comes at us like we are still ten years old when we are 23 and 28 :roll:

When my parents try to maninpulate my sisters and I by guilt tripping us and making us feel like we are rotten horriable daughters when we can't come through for some reason.

When my father parks his car in front of mine even though there is a whole space of drive way on the other side where he can park, and I have to end up asking him to move his car if I want to leave. And then he grumbles why I park in the place where he likes to park. Um...because that is where my older sister parks, and if she is not there I don't see why he has to block me instead of just taking up to free space. God! :x

I just love how I get cussed out for accidents. Like today, I cut my finger (My hand actually >__>), and ran into the closet to get a bandaid, and accidentally knocked my fathers suit to the floor, and I got a 10 minute lecture on how much of a "Fucking stupid bitch" I am.

Wow ya know I normally try to keep my opinions on your parents to myself considering I dont fully know the situation. But god lord man how is it helping you grow into a self confident person if your being cussed at as much as you say you are. I dont want to take sides since we are only getting your side to this but if even a tenth of what you put here is going on that screams red flags to me. I dont want to seem like im doubting ya or nothing so dont think that I just really think that something should be done if this is going on that is not a good situation for anyone to grow up in.

Or it's thrown in to bump the movie up to an R rating. See: Snakes on a Motherfucking Plane.

I get annoyed when people try to interfere with me doing my job at work. For whatever reason. Like what I posted in the other thread about the two people who came to help me. They aren't supervisors, and they shouldn't be telling me what to do, especially since I've been around long enough for them to know that I've been assessed on how to use a Stanley knife--it's a job requirement and I don't currently need training for something I've been doing for slightly more than two years. If my supervisor is fine with me doing the job, they should be too.

Also, there's this one co-worker that I'm fairly ambivalent about. Although she sometimes has interesting things to say, other times she gets extremely annoying. It is kinda funny when I try to convince her that TV existed before 1956. Now I shall watch what happens when I try to convince her that Star Trek was filmed in colour.

...people who have non-traditional/no spiritual beliefs go around and insult the beliefs of people who follow traditional religions, especially when their complaining because their own beliefs are being disrespected. Trust me, the whole "Do unto others" thing was NOT just espoused by Jesus, and you'd get a whole lot more respect from others if you didn't go around bashing Christianity just for the hell of it -_-
