The problem is that they are everywhere. I even recognize one of them because he's around in my area. Maybe Europe is different from here.

Yeah and the problem is that I forgot my wallet at home everytime they asked, despite of all. :P

What are they gonna do?

Send the cops after you for never carrying any cash with yourself?

Well, maybe they'll get the message.

I had better point out that I have never ever given any money to any of them. I'd rather throw my money into the rubbish bin than give it to them.

I just find their presence really annoying. It's a bit like having cockroaches around.

Getting sacked for using ad-blockers, I can honestly see a very dark future incoming in modern internet life if they manage to even do THIS type of stuff.

I actually don't mind non-intrusive ads. What ever happened to simple banner ads at the top or side of the screen? Now advertisers are forcing ads down your throat any way they can. The hijack method seems to be popular these days. The website won't load until the video ad has played, or the DVD won't go to the menu screen until the production company logo animation – or worse, the trailers – have played. The message is, "You're gonna sit there and watch this [email protected]#king crap or we're not gonna give you what you came here for." This is why people are willing to simply pay for content to make the ads go away. Unfortunately, some services, like Hulu Plus, give you ads even if you pay for their stuff.

We're heading closer and closer to this, and it terrifies me:

Telemarkerters who ring you when you're on the do not call register. :evil:
I have fixed them by having a answering machine and when they ring all they get is a message if I remember and don't pick the phone up. :D

I'm at that age when just about everything I eat gives me gas and/or heartburn.

Running to the nearest bathroom after I eat or drink something that gives me indigestion.

People who don't even give me the chance to say what I need to say and then judge me without really knowing me.

People who drive around and around parking lots, looking for a parking spot nearest the store. Sometimes these twits follow me when I leave the store, in the hope, I suppose, that I'm parked in one of the close spots. It is so &@%#* irritating to be walking to my car as another vehicle slooooowly creeps along behind me. Sometimes as i'm being followed this way,I walk up to a car that isn't mine, fumble with my keys, look up, 'realize' the car isn't mine, and head off into a different aisle so they can't follow me there. Or get into my car, start it, put it in reverse (so they see my brake and reverse lights come on), then pull out a map, unfold it, and pretend to study it intently. (Though in reality I'm just listening to the radio.)
