Predatory Bird Oculus
People who assume things about me, regardless as to if they are correct. You are not inside my head, you do not know what I am thinking, therefore you cannot assume anything about me.
Cancer. Cancer grinds my gears. I almost lost an uncle to it, and I have a favorite teacher who is scheduled to not wake up one morning in the next 5 or 6 years. It's just not fair....
Inconsiderate people. Whether it's a neighbor who doesn't give a that his dog is up at 3AM in the back yard barking, the idiot in line at the grocery store with 10 people behind him, who is digging for exact change or writing a check (usually followed by flipping to the recording section in the back of the book to record the purchase) even though they have like 2 things, or the idiot who decides because he got into the movie theatre late he's entitled to turn on his smartphone's flashlight and shine it everywhere looking for a place to sit. Really? The movie has been on for 20 minutes. You shouldn't have even been let through the door.

When people call my a spoiled brat because I have a good job, a car, nice things, and money to do things that a lot of kids don't get to do.
I call that being responsible and hard working, something stupidly rare with my generation.

Josh, all that is necessary is a little perspective. When others rail on you because of your toy collection, they assume a lot that you could correct! They assume that the Canon 7d that you shoot belongs to you, the video camera and all of the editing equipment belongs to you as well, not to mention the $2300.00 lens you just reviewed. There is another guy on MCB, much younger than you, even, who has owned some of the most sought after unicorns out there. You may recognize his screen name, Lechooch. This young guy has earned the respect and admiration of a lot of us old timers, because he is an open book about his life.
I think that a lot of what you hear comes out of resentment. People from less affluent families are expected to contribute their income towards family expenses, not spend it on toys. Another thing to remember is that these are just "First world problems."

People assuming because I have a lot of toys that my parents must buy them all for me.
Keep in mind, I'm out of college, living across the continent from them, and in the military.
Just because you blow all your money on booze and strippers doesn't mean everyone does.
On that note
People that blow there money on booze and strippers then complain about being broke.

Don't feel bad; if it was not for MCB the only reason I would be on the internet would be pornography. - breg

Sic Itur Ad Astra
People that have said I'm irresponsible because I have a kid and still manage to own a nice Alienware laptop, have a great PB marker collection a nice DSLR setup and some other toys of my own. What they forget is that a lot of that stuff was around BEFORE my kid and the stuff that wasn't I sold other stuff I owned so I could get the stuff I wanted so in now was the money I get for my parental leave touched for my own amusement. That money goes into formula,diapers,whipes etc things that are essential for my child. If I can still have nice things for myself and my child is well taken care of then who are others to judge me?

Bob long's mills grind my gears. Putting out a new G6r every 10 seconds is idiotic
When companies put out a new gun every year with one or two things changed
On that note, the people that BUY the new one every year for its 2 changes grinds my gears.
