    It's because they love them that they view them as having value low enough to warrant needing more.
    Personally this should be enough, it's not like the world is made of dollars and coins.

    In my opinion, you're wrong.

    All that stuff that was described in that example is waaay more than enough. I'd be happy with just a new phone. o:

    That's... not really a generalization of a group of people. It's more of a prediction of the future. I don't see how it's discriminating in any way.

    To say that given a constant age of people, over the course of time people of that age will want more and more things, though, would be a stereotype.

    I guess I misunderstood.
    I took it as "anyone born after a certain year is greedy".

    Considering how I am right now, I'd be happy with a new laptop, too. I don't really need a new phone, and I'm good in the video game department with my 3DS. (:

    Oh yes, I need a new computer badly. My current one has trouble loading five seconds of a video on youtube.

    The only real problem that I have with my computer right now is that it takes forever to start up. Oh yeah, and it's a bit too big for my tastes.

    But for right now, it'll do. I'll probably get a new computer before I go off to college (which is in like two and a half more years). I can wait. :P

    I hate it when I tap my laptop's touchpad to click something and the cursor moves over to the top right corner and almost closes the window.
    I know I can prevent this by hitting the actual left button (the touchpad and buttons are not all-in-one), but it just is less difficult to click that way.

    I don't like how whenever I'm selecting a rectangle in GIMP, and I hold the left mouse button slightly too softly and it registers as though I let go of the mouse button.

    I get that functionality is for gaming and whatnot, but still... D:

    You can't blame them, really... sometimes they just wouldn't get the joke and often it's just in their nature to correct spelling and grammar mistakes.

    Especially when they're irritated that day, or if they don't care whether or not it's a joke. :/

    The latter is the case for me. I just can't resist the urge to correct every single grammatical mistake I see, whether it's in my head or not.

    Anyway, one thing that's really grinding my gears right now is that half the stuff in one of my favourite fandoms - as in, subbed character songs, subbed episodes, fanfiction - is in Spanish. SPANISH. Why Spanish, out of all things? ;~;

    It annoys me when people treat their opinion as fact. I really just don't want to talk to a person after they do that.

    I got a bag of chips today and guess what? 3/4s OF THE BAG IS FILLED WITH AIR!!! WTF. I know air is needed to make sure the bag functions as needed, but when I get a bag of chips, I expect at least half the bag to have chips, NOT 1/4!!! I bought a bad of chips, NOT A BAG OF AIR!!!!!

    My two friends are always treating me like a six-year old who doesn't know anything. One of them says "You're too young to know this" then I glance at him to sort of remind him he's the same age as me, he then says "I'm more mature". How does he know hmm? I'm just as mature as him. In the past year one of them tried to change my life, he was like "Don't do this, don't do that." My friends are fun to chat with but they grind my gears sometimes.

    I saw a relevant text post on tumblr:
    "I used to think air was free, but then I bought a bag of chips."

    Also, I recommend always buying Pringles, they've got a good chip-to-air ratio.

    It's a fun way to learn Spanish.

    When people refuse to accept that they were incorrect.

    When people think you're complaining, even when you're not. I said "it would be nice if OP was more specific - I don't understand the question" and they said I was complaining.
