Adjective Presents: The 2017 Ungrateful List

Now that 2017 is over and we've given thanks for all that we're grateful for this year, there were a few things we could have done without. So in reluctant acknowledgement of those things, Adjective & Co. presents a list of things from 2017 we really didn't need. 


Brittany Norris

  • "30 Rock" leaving Netflix. It’s the end of an era…and of my standard Saturday morning, Saturday evening, Sunday morning, Monday evening, and Wednesday mid-day routine.

  • The Unicorn Frappuccino® Blended Crème by Starbucks Coffee Company. What the hell was that mashup of ugly colors and fake flavors? Can Starbucks just admit to no longer selling coffee?

  • Hurricane Irma. I’d like to unsubscribe from future tropical events in the Atlantic. Who do I contact regarding this matter?


Kari Davidson

  • Chipotle's failed attempt at queso
  •  Taco Bell's clothing line
  •  Alex's removal of the mullet
  •  UNF parking


Kayla Beckmann Barnhart

  • Never being able to jam out to The Quiet Things That No One Ever Knows (Brand New, Deja Entendu) ever again, because, Jesse Lacey is a scumbag and dead to me
  • Breaking News Kardashian pregnancy alerts
  • Breaking News, in general
  • Starbucks unicorn drink

Alex Balosie

  • My stolen garden hose

  • The Bromper or Romphim. Which ever name you choose, no.

  • "Cash me ousside, how bow dah?"

  • Mile-high fight club

  • The federal government

  • Equifax

  • USA not going to the 2018 World Cup

  • James Bond and Batman died  (Roger Moore, Adam West, RIP.)


Kingsley Spencer

  • The fact that we don't live in Marty McFly's future we were promised. No flying cars (they can barely drive themselves), no Flux Capacitors (aka no time travel), no self-drying clothes, and no hoverboards. It's a bunch of crap. Spielberg was swinging for the fences with the Back to the Future timeline, and if evil Biff can become our current President, I really think we should get a microwave that can turn a bagel bite into a Hot-N-Ready at 5 seconds. Just sayin.


Courtney Dawson

  • Conspiracy theories coming out of the woodworks

  • Apple slowing down my iPhone before the release of a new one

  • Creepy old men



Mallory Turner

  • The A ⍰ OS 11.1 update.

  • Shooting after shooting after shooting. Can we not!?

  • The amount of natural disasters. Hurricanes, wildfires, and earthquakes, oh my!

  • Chris Pratt and Anna Faris divorce

  • Fidget Spinners


Jordon Kaplan

  • Episode 7 of Stranger Things Season 2

  • The announcement that the Heathers would be transformed into a TV show

  • Fri-yay

  • Deshaun Watson and JJ Watt out for the season  (Sports so hard)

  • Hurricanes and the subsequent 3 MONTHS it takes to get debris out of my yard


Danielle Bergh

  • Twitter upping the character count (more room for Trump to act a fool)
  • Apple changing the charger hook up, yet again
  • Halloween tire slashing spree in Jax Beach
  • Kevin Spacey


Taylor Harkey

  • The King's speeches in Walking Dead, Season 8

  • First four tiers of customer service representatives
  • My new MacBook Pro's assortment of wires and adapters that resemble a traveling ICU. 2018 says whut.
  • Comcast destroying my yard
  • Watching people who can't quite pull off the word "rad" but awkwardly try to use it anyway
  • Siri
