A woman driver and her mother/sister/best girlfriend in the passenger seat yakking away and not paying due care and attention, and showing precious little or no consideration for other road-users  mad 

Shoppers in a department store who use the escalator, then upon reaching the required floor stop dead in their tracks to get their bearings thus standing in the way of people behind them (me)  mad 

Carefree and clueless parents pushing those monstrous three-wheel baby buggies or strollers which seem to take up as much space as their SUV  mad 

And I wholeheartedly agree with most of what is told on the BBC 2 programme "Grumpy Old Men" (Arthur Smith just cracks me up)

Ugh tell me about it *roll-eyes*

I am just about to go do my weekly shopping at the supermarket now and I'm dreading it since Friday evening after work is the worst time to go.

With me it's just get in, do what I need to do, and get out! I am as fast as possible  Silly

Films that (seemingly nowadays) have to state that they contain varying levels of sex/bad language/violence, whatever. I saw a preview for a new animated flick that "contains mild peril". Mild peril? wtf is that?

Do people really have to know all the ways in which they could potentially be offended before they'll agree to buy a ticket to see a film?

None of the so called warnings contain "complete bollocks, don't bother watching" which would probably be the most helpful one.

Applying for a job that has been open 3 times in the past year, each time to be told: "your experience is not a match for what we are looking for"; when you meet all of the requirements except for one.

If anyone needs to rent a car, the ones who "pick you up" are the most expensive anyway. Pick someone else.  Angry

You know what really grinds my gears? This Lindsay Lohan. Lindsay Lohan with all those little outfits, jumping around there on stage, half-naked with your little outfits. Ya know? You're a...You're out there jumping around and I'm just sitting here with my beer. So, what am I supposed to do? What you want? You know, are we gonna go out? Is that what you're trying to - why why are you leaping around there, throwing those things all up in my, over there in my face? What do you want, Lindsay? Tell me what you want? Well, I'll tell you what you want, you want nothing. You want nothing. All right? Because we all know that no woman anywhere wants to have sex with anyone, and to titillate us with any thoughts otherwise is - is just bogus.

-People at school who insist on stopping IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FRIGGIN' HALL for a conversation during the 5 minutes we get to go to our next class.

-People who insist on talking on a cell phone while in an unfamiliar area, getting lost and then distrupting traffic.

-Places that show no interest in serving anyone is below 21. Electronics and Camera stores in peticular.

-Tall people ALWAYS sitting in front of you at a baseball game.

-People driving 55 in the left lane and NOT moving, no matter how many times they are being passed (big problem in CT).

-People who ask you a question just to have an excuse to be angry at you, regardless of your answer.

-People who talk about aviation and act like they are right.....although I hold my tongue until they start talking about the plane crashing and things of that nature.

-Philosophy class, because watching pointless arguments at 9:15 A.M., where fellow students just keep digging bigger holes for themselves, is getting old real quick.

-People who don't pay any attention to anything outside their own little world. For example, last fall one of my roommates brought his girlfriend over. He went into the bathroom, so she sat on the couch and tried to start a conversation with myself and a couple of my other roommates. We were watching the tsunami coverage on CNN, and she looks up at us with this confused look. And then she said, I kid you not,"Tsunami?.....isn't that like a country or something?"

I hate that too.. I like to open up a can of whoop-ass on th em.. Tell them how wrong they are and why.. They usually stop adn start feeling stupid about themselves..


ANOTHER THING:

When driving, you change lanes when there is tons of room behind and ahead of you. The guy who is at least 500 feet behind you doesn't like that you aren't going 20 MPH above the limit in the SLOW LANE, so he gets RIGHT on your ass. (Well, maybe September11 would like it) Then the guy goes to the next lane, speeds up till he's right next to you hoping to get your attention, and when he fails he swerves just enough to make you wonder if he's going to hit your car..

Bastards..
