"An elderly person warms the palms of his hands over a brazier and stretches out the wrinkles. No young man would dream of behaving in such fashion; old people can really be quite shameless." -- Sei Shōnagon

One occasionally finds elderly men using the hot air machines to dry their crotches after taking a shower. No young man would do this, for those machines are for drying hands. Oh, how hateful!


"The sound of dogs when they bark for a long time in chorus is ominous and hateful."

One is at the gym, listening to one's own music while exercising, when one's fellow patrons scream, in the manner of a woman in labor without painkillers, as they lift a weight, each time they lift it. What charmless behavior! "Hateful" is an understatement.


"I cannot stand people who leave without closing the panel behind them."

One opens a locker without a lock on it, expecting it to be empty, only to find someone's belongings already there. Most hateful!


"One has gone to bed and is about to doze off when a mosquito appears, announcing himself in a reedy voice. One can actually feel the wind made by his wings, and, slight though it is, one finds it hateful in the extreme."

A popular style of headphones are audible from some considerable distance, and their faint buzzing announces the lack of musical taste of their owners. Hateful!

You remind me how much I loved reading Sei Shonagon in college, and how much I also just wanted to shake her. :D

We should all do like Shonagon and keep lists like this. :)

Nothing about people who don't put their equipment back? That plagues my gym. This one dude and his friend were doing makeshift T-bar rows in a power cage using a barbell, a v-handle, and a 100-pound dumbbell holding the unweighted end of the barbell in place. There were 4 plates on the other end of the bar. They just left it all lying there when they were done. Hateful!
