People who tell you what collective nouns of animals are. No one cares. No one ever uses them in any other context other than telling you they exist and even then, who decided they exist in the first place? You might get it in a quiz or something, like "what's a group of owls called?" Well what the hell is wrong with the word group. Can't all groups of animals be called groups instead of trying to come up with stupid names that don't even help differentiate since you have to say the animal anyway.

People who wear wedges. That "filled in" heel look is the most disgusting footwear I've ever seen. I was under the impression that a higher heel was for aesthetics rather than comfort so why you would choose both uncomfortable and ugly shoes is beyond me.

Wedges were very hip in the seventies.
I stick to potato wedges now
