So I guess you got the email,
What gets on my nerves;
Users who start a thread and say that this will probably get deleted.
What really get on my nerves, a customer will ring and say I need a part for something, we sell electronics. So conversation might be I need a part for a Radar, and you ask what brand and they say JRC and you ask them which model and they say I don't know I don't remember that bit,
or a customer will ring and ask for the phone number of one of our salesman, and we give it to them and then they realise they haven't got any way of writing down the number you are about to give them.

Quote: People driving around with not only lights on their cars when it's daylight
FYI: I believe in Canada (or at least in Ontario) its the law to drive with headlights on during day-time. Here state-side, it is highly recommended (depending on where you live). The rationale is better visibility for on-coming traffic particularly in haze, fog, twilight etc. During the day, I always drive with lights on.

- People who interrupt you when you're trying to make a statement. The ultimate dissrespect. If you disagree, fine...but WAIT until the person has finished before offering your thoughts/critique.
- People who drive in the left lane BELOW the speed limit. The left lane is for passing only, gang...be it the Autobahn or I-5 or I-75 or whatever. Don't want to drive the speed limit + 10mph? Get over to the middle lane or the slow lane. Stop being a "self-appointed speed regulator" as my Dad would say.
Re: headlights: 7pm to 7am is required in most places. Most, if not all, new cars have daytime running lights for safety that are always on. I used to be a critic of this, but depending on where you're driving, the lighting situation can always change, and as long as you have your headlights on, it makes it tougher for the other person who potentially crashes into you that they couldn't see you, if you had your headlights or daytime running lights on.

Quoting Alcregular (Reply 2): People driving around with not only lights on their cars when it's daylight, but having fog lights on during the day, then the sun is cracking the pavements, ggrrrr.
DRL's (daytime running lights) are required in Canada and many European countries. Many (if not most) cars sold in the USA have DRL's. I use front fog lights on clear nights to help illuminate the ditches...they help to prevent a deer collision. I agree that rear fog lights shouldn't be used unless there's heavy fog, rain, or snow.

- A-holes that refuse to use directional signals, especially for lane changing ( death penalty offense: "breaking with the wheel" is the perfect method )
- People with no 1st-hand knowledge ( much less experience ) on a subject/situation who nonetheless spout declaritive opinions in an authoritative manner.
- People who take advantage of other's good nature
- Sanctimonious hypocrites who go through the week as a cheating, lying opportunist ( or take advantage of other's good nature ) yet aver their virtuousness when it's convenient ( grandstand ) or just because they have a two-arc fish on their decklid or that they regularly attend church on sunday
There are others, but the world would go 'round much much better ridded of these people.
