  • Cleanliness of the Bathrooms - Though this is a really big problem for most people, it doesn't bother me too much because I don't use the bathrooms at school.  But in any case, they smell like ass (which would make complete sense) and people don't flush their toilets.  On top of that, many of the toilets are clogged with mounds of toilet paper.  That's why I try not to use the bathrooms at school.
  • Parking Lot Restriction - I can understand why the school wouldn't let you go out to your car during lunch if your intentions were to leave the campus.  It is entirely different when one is trying to just get something out of one's car.  If the security guard wanted to make sure that one was going to one's car to get something, then he or she should follow, but it doesn't make any sense to hassle him or her if he or she really does plan on getting something from his or her car.  I mean, the person could be forgetting homework and is probably not in a good mood, and it's not a really good idea to hassle them if they just want to complete a task that should be really simple.
  • Students that Come to School With Weapons - Some people bring weapons for self-defense.  Some bring them to trade with their friends or threaten people.  Regardless, weapons should not be brought to school.  I don't care if you keep it for self-defense because a school is a place for learning, and if someone threatens you on campus, then you should tell someone right away and make sure they get sent to hell because they are freakin' mutated sections of the gene pool and should be thrown in a sewage dump.
  • The Punk Attitude - Don't get me wrong, I like most skaters and punkers.  There are some that get on my nerves though, and those are the one's that claim to have a "punk" attitude.  This is supposed to mean that they are expressing their own selves and being who they are.  Too bad they are all wearing the same brands, making similar hairdos, and smoking the same drug.  All their actions are fine, except for the fact that they continuously repeat that they are being original.
  • Students that Flaunt Weapons - As I said before, I don't like it when people bring weapons to school.  It is even more stupid when those same people flaunt their weapons like they have much more power over you.  Yeah, it's great you have a weapon, and you know what?  I don't give a rat's ass.  Why don't you go stab yourself if you feel so inclined to show off its power?
  • Students that Don't Cooperate - When I am working in class and I have to do a group project, nothing is more annoying than a person that doesn't want to cooperate with others.  I like to get good grades on things, so I have to work much harder while I see the other person do nothing and receive the same grade as I do.  I'm not a violent person, but sometimes I would love to just shove a nail up their nose every now and then.
  • Braille Signs - I know that these are here for blind people to get around, but I still don't really understand how they are used.  Honestly, if the person is blind, how are they going to find the braille signs in the first place?  Are they just going to run into walls and then all of a sudden be like, "Wait, I think I ran into some Braille!"
  • Students that Don't Acknowledge Anyone Stupider than Them - There are some students out there that think that they are the shit when it comes to knowledge, so they believe that they don't need talk to anyone stupider than them.  This really annoys me because usually those people don't know everything and act like they do.  This is especially true when it comes to social skills.  It's funny; they have none.
  • Teachers that Treat Their Students Like Little Kids - So yeah, we're high schoolers now, and it's intolerable when a teacher is handing out candies and giving them pet names as if we were five.  And on top of that, it's just a little too childish to hand out stickers and animal stamps.  My gosh, just realize that we're a little older than a toddler.
  • The Belief that High School Means a lot - I hear it from guidance, I hear it from the front office, and I hear it from teachers and students, but the truth is that high school is minimal compared to the rest of your life.  Most of the people I have talked to that are past high school don't even remember what their grades were.  Okay, sure, grades, attitude and activites in high school can determine what college you go to, but in the same fashion, moderate grades aren't going to ruin you for the rest of your life.  The people that work hard in high school are not going to be successful because they worked hard in high school but because they used their high school knowledge to work hard for their time in the real world.
