A few, fast radio ads that make one veer off the road, scream or spit.


--ANYTHING Geico.

--Any ad with "I was diagnosed with...."

--"Let me show you how to flip homes...."

--Any ad stating  a phone # more than twice.  Some do it six times in sequence...like torture at times.

--"Quit your job and start making money in your spare time."

--Any ED pill supplement ads.

--'Tax relief' agency ads- this dude has over $100,000 in back taxes owed...yet he gets a refund of thousands.  huh??

--Major World - used car dealership, Queens NY.  Heard on 97 A.M. radio, NYC - hysterical, screaming announcer who makes one want throw something...or worse.

I agree; those Major World commercials are the worst. WHY IS THAT GUY SCREAMING AT ME?! It's not going to make me buy your crappy cars.

-- Almost any ad where the local business owner decides to do his own voice work to save a buck
-- ANY ad where they use a family member's kid who can't enunciate or modulate properly 
-- Ads that use car horns, sirens, screeching tires, or other road hazard noises
-- Same for any kind of eating, smacking, slurping, mmm-ing, or aaah-ing related to food or beverages
-- Mortgage refi and credit repair scams
-- Ads in Spanish on an English-only station

The 3+ repetitions of phone numbers makes me scream.
