1) People talking on cell phones while driving....poorly driving. They sell these cool little wireless headsets for your car at Best Buy, folks!

2) Pretty much the entire driving population of Michigan which sucks.

3) People who don't say thank you when you hold open a door for them

4) political correctness

5) People who are stupid enough to allow themselves to get offended by words

6) Al Sharpton

7) Al Franken

8) People who don't train their dogs (ie. jump all over you when you visit them, don't know how to heel)

9) These same people who then try to tell me I am "cruel" for trying to train my dog to sit or heel. :dang:

10) PETA for lacking reason and logic

11) That "church" that protests at soldiers funerals

12) I can buy a Miller Lite at a local bar for $1.25 but it costs $4.50 at a restaurant across the street.

13) People who think we are in Iraq only for oil.

14) College student protesters.

15) People who still write checks at the grocery store. Get in the fast lane, Grandma, the bingo game is about to roll! Debit cards are a wonderful advancement that saves time and cuts down on lines. Why write an obsolete check? And, why wait till YOU ARE IN LINE to START writing it??!!! And don't give me the BS about it being more secure...you have your address, phone number, checking account#, routing number and sometimes your drivers license number written on it!

16) The people at a casino Blackjack table that feel the need to tell you how to play, without being asked for help. I mean, Jesus lady, you're at a $5 table and I am having fun with my buddies and gambling. IF you are that worried about seriously trying to play with your welfare check, then go to a high stakes table or go get a job!!

17) On that note, Slot machines...what a waste of time.

18) The UAW

19) One uppers. You know, tell a story and this person always has a better one "if you think that's good, listen to this!"

20) People who join conversations in the middle and then proceed to take them over

21) The better it tastes, usually the more unhealthy it is. What the f*ck??!

22) Alcohol and cigarettes kill more people then anything else in this country yet both are legal. Marijuana, not linked to any fatalities is illegal. WTF?

23) Yinzers...you know, moronic Pittsburgh fans who seem to be perpetually drunk and retarded yet get on the radio and TV airwaves and unknowingly represent the city. (Usually these people call the Mark Madden show and get berated)

24) Guys from the hood who spend more on their rims then they do for their car. I can't tell you how many rusted out jalopies I see with crazy spinner rims in Detroit. People have weird priorities.

25) Some in the media talking about ILLEGAL immigrants as if they have constitutional rights. WTF? I am not against immigration, jackass media guy, I am against ILLEGAL immigration.

26) The Madden football video games still have shitty presentation values. Why aren't they using the ESPN license?????

27) People who are always on a diet but never lose weight or are getting fatter. You have to exercise too, jackass!

28) My wife moves things like my work badge and eye drops to places I would never think to look for them...then forgets she moved them. (love you honey! :hug:)

29) The obesity problem in this country. For those that say mind your own business, I say "Hey...my health care costs aren't outrageous for nothing!"

30) The two party system and partisan politics.

31) Politicians, for that matter.

32) Actors who think they know everything and don't have a high school or college education yet a media platform to voice their views. **cough** Spicoli **cough**

33) The builder of my subdivision...for hiring cheap Hispanic labor instead of hiring local contractors. Especially with the Michigan economy and lots of local folks looking for work.

34) People who schedule meetings at 8:00am or earlier...or between noon and 1:00pm. Can I at least get my coffee, please? (I work in Dilbertland)

35) People who say "We" when referring to their sports teams. Listen, I know your a fan and all, but it's "They"! Unless you collect a paycheck from the team in question, you shouldn't say "we" when referring to the team.

36) People in Detroit who say "Fords" instead of "Ford". As in "You work over at Fords?" and I always respond "Yes, I work at FORD."

37) Overly proud parents who think they have the smartest toddlers.

38) This generation of parents goes out of it's way to teach every child that they are unique and special. Isn't this setting up some kids for disappointment? I mean, once we get older we know that's not the case. I am your average "Joe" and I am quite content with that.

39) Why are some people so against sports teams, school grades and declaring winners and losers in competition? What are we teaching our kids? Losing is sometimes a part of life and teaches you to be a better winner. Come on parents!!!!!

ah...hell, I could go on but I digress. :wink02:

Or how about just turning the damn things off altogether? It torques me off when I'm in line at a grocery store, and the idiot in front of me in line is having a discussion on their cell with one hand with the thumb of their other hand being stuck firmly up their posterior, which in turn holds up the entire line. If you're not a doctor or some other kind of emergency or first responder type of person, you do not need to hold cell conversations 24/7/365! :mad:

17) People who criticize spanking a child
18) People who call DCF when witnessing a child getting a spanking
19) Idiots who talk about my Steelers but have no allegiance to anyone team (They just "love" the game)
20) Idiots who think that just because we have a new head coach and lost Joey Porter that the Steelers will suck!

People talking on their cell phones while driving is the #1 thing that pisses me off. You mean to tell me you can't pull over or into a parking lot to continue your conversation if it's so damn important? Or...maybe calling them back later when you aren't in danger of getting someone killed because you just can't ignore that ringtone? How's that for a novel idea, Mr. or Ms. Self-Important?

And while we're on the subject of cell phones...

25) Cell phones with walkie-talkies. Whose bright idea was this? Yeah, just what I want to hear - riding the bus on the way home after a long day at work and having to listen to some jackass having a full conversation with some other jackass, and getting to hear every single word of it. Listen up, slapnuts - nobody gives a shit about what you're talking about, so turn that damn thing off before it ends up at the bottom of the Mon River.

26) People who drive SUVs, then complain about the price of gas. There's one old saying that I think should apply here - if you're not part of the solution, then you're part of the problem. You, SUV driver, are part of the problem. Don't want to pay $75 to fill up that tank on wheels? Drive a smaller car. Simple as that. Until then, quit your bitching and open up your wallet.

27) People who feel the need to blast their car stereos. Will one of you please explain to me why you MUST share your music with everyone within a 10 mile radius? And most of the time, it's some young gangsta-wannabe whose stereo is worth more than the piece of crap hooptie they're driving. Unreal. I'd better invest in the companies who make hearing aids now, because in 25 years, I'll be filthy stinking rich.

15) I unfortunately go to school with some of these Teenagers. It's really annoying that teens like me who actually have level heads and work hard to earn what other teens think they are owed are getting a bad name because of those idiots.

16) This one I also find very annoying. I don't agree with some of the things my mom does, but that doesn't mean I should throw a fit over it. I just get over it, and do what she asks around the house as annoying as it is. All kids are going to have to learn one day that parents raise us they way they do because they feel it's best to do so that way.

19) Those people really have allegiances. It's to other teams that really hate the Steelers. If you say you have no allegiance to a team but are talking about the Steelers that way, you have an allegiance.

20) That's what everyone probably thought about the Steelers after we had to start Big Ben in 2004 once Tommy went down.

28) The term "soccer moms" Not even the most popular sport, let alone the ridculous notion these mom's all have a certain political view.

29) Verizon, for not requiring that customer service reps speak English in any intelligible manner.

30 People who start a sentence with: "no offence, but .... or don't take this the wrong way, but." Caveat, unless it is me who says it of course :wink02:

31) My Mechanic ... when he starts a sentence with: "I'm not sure how much money you want to put into it (the car) but........"

2) Pretty much the entire driving population of Michigan which sucks.

They suck here in NY as well. I was crossing the street in front of my apartment complex one time. An SUV coming down the road on my left stopped for me, and I started to cross. In the entrance to the parking lot on the other side of this street sat a car. Facing out, no blinkers, no indication at all that it was going to move. As I cross the middle line, the car peels out with a left turn at about 60 mph. We have a large sign in the middle of the road that says "Stop for Pedestrians," and people ignore it. Hell, I've had cops not stop when I'm crossing the road.

And yet the state of New York will not let me have my license (I have hydrocephalus, a form of cerebral palsy. And no, it's not contagious). It took me an entire summer just to get my permit, because the DMV kept "losing" the paperwork.

I could give you a whole list of things that piss me off that have to do with people's attitude towards me. Instead, I'll give you something else that pisses me off: the next person to tell me that Pink Floyd and everyone who listens to them are stoners is going to get a copy of Nick Schaffner's Saucerful of Secrets: The Pink Floyd Odyssey upside the head. Although I'm sure Nick Mason's book would hurt more. Schaffner's book's a great one, by the by.

I've also been told that Pink Floyd is goth, which...what the hell, you guys. :mallet:

Steeelpinstripe72:

I think the driving is bad in the whole middle and east northern states. Rude, tailgating, don't wave, etc.

Pittsburgh is actually pretty decent. But, if you drive south, say to Kentucky or the Carolina's, people are so much more laid back on the road, and polite. It has to be a cultural thing. But I have driven in LA, Chicago and NYC. Trust me when I say that Michigan is one of the worst.

Pick Floyd rules.

Maybe you should go on tour around the country and explain to groups of teenagers these two points. I ask two things of my older children - respect and obey. Respect the fact that I am older and know more than you do and have seen more than probably 98% of the teenage population. Obey when you are asked do something. There's one of two reasons why a parent asks a child to do something - 1) to help out around the house or 2) to make them learn how to do things on their own so they know how to do it later in life.

While I agree, that I never really understood why I had to do certain jobs as a child in my parent's household, I obeyed and respected my parents. Mostly because my father told me if I disrespected his wife (which yes was my mother) we would walk out back and only one of us would walk back in.

But I digress, SCM, if you are even close to the levelheadedness that you proclaim, then you could do those other kids a huge favor if you just shared your message with them.

I couldn't believe it tonight. I was eating dinner tonight with my Associate pastor and secretary. Sure enough... some guy had a walkie-talkie phone... talking on it in the middle of the restaurant.. talking as loudly as possible, using foul language. Every two seconds... BEEEEEEEEEEP

For those of you who think driving is bad in the states, believe me YOU GUYS HAVEN'T SEEN ANYTHING YET. Driving here in Mongolia sucks big time. Particularly in the capital it sucks worse. I've drove in quite many states when I was in the US so I know. :wink02: Though I think Chicago was the worst, out of the states I've been when it comes to driving.

It wasn't like this 8 years ago in here. Now many of these a-holes don't know nothing about DRIVING. You'll see some of the most impatient, rude, mean, blind and stupid people. :dang: For example, they'll start honking when you stop and try to let pedestrians cross. Heck, some will be honking to tell you to move even when the green light is not even on. :banging:

I have often said... if someone developed a cheap noise cancellation device that broadcasted for a few feet... they would be BILLIONAIRES.

Pull up to someone who has thier bass cranked. Next thing, they start looking around... what happened to my bass?

The answer, NOTHING. Someone else pulled up to him and turned on the noise cancel!!

That would be hilarious!

I just copied and pasted my response to a Pet Peeves thread that was started many moons ago. These things STILL torque me off. :mad:

Chewing food like you were born in a barnyard. Geez - if I wanted to wear what you were eating, I'd have ordered it my damned self - LOL!

People who blast their car radios with their windows wide open no matter what the season. I don't want to hear your shart stompin', head banging, fo shizzle poor excuse for music. I play back - I pop in my Johnny Cash tape and blast "I Walk the Line" as high as the volume will go - that usually earns me a hairy eyeball, a middle finger, a head shake or a quick roll up of the window.

People who use the excuse of walking their dog as an opportunity for Fido to shart in your nicely manicured lawn. Ughhhh. Chocolate Ex-Lax works great- dogs love it (and so do carpet cleaning companies)! Their owners, unfortunately, don't.

Those who bring their infants and toddlers to sporting events. Look - the thought is nice, your kid is really cute, but junior isn't going to understand what is going on, isn't going to remember it and why make our lives and experience miserable because you can spend $14.00 on two beers but can't spend $20.00 on a sitter? I love babies, but I don't enjoy their screaming when I'm trying to enjoy the game!

Sucking your own fingers when eating. My God - do you HAVE to get every single last drop?? I'd prefer you stick your face in the bowl and slurp it up rather than seeing (and hearing) you slurping your fingers - that's nasty! :yuck:

Putting your fingers in my plate and helping yourself to my food - damn it - ask and you shall receive! I'm a softie, honestly I am, but that could earn you a forked finger.

People who stand in the middle of an aisle at a store or sporting event to BS. (Usually happens to me in the candy aisle at the store. I'm on to them - while they're pretending to chit-chat, they're eyeing up the goodies and deciding which 10 bags they're going to hide in their cart so the hubby doesn't see it - LOL!) Moooooooove on over, please?

Drivers who tailgate and flash their lights at me while I'm in the right lane on an interstate, going the speed limit or a bit above, thinking it is going to make me risk getting a ticket so they can get to their bar or peep show or wherever the heck they're in such a hurry to get to. Sorry Bullwinkle - that usually has the opposite effect and hey - did you ever hear of the passing lane? :dang:

Going into a public restroom (this happens a lot at PNC and HF) and finding out after it's too late that the toilet paper dispenser is empty. I know, I know - look before you sit, but sometimes when you gotta go, you just gotta go and you assume that the ignoramus who used the last piece would have the common courtesy to let the attendant or someone know. I'm religious about that myself.

Okay, I work as a customer service rep at a gas station (it's a nice way of saying gas station attendant). So a lot of these have to do with my job.

1. People who don't get off of their phones when they get to the register. Come one, is it that painful to tell someone to hold on while I ring you up? Last night, some guy didn't hear the total and he was paying with his bank card. He got pissed at me because he was to engulfed in his telephone conversation to pay any attention. He just handed me the card, so I swiped it.

Turns out, he called my work today and asked if they could take the $40 overdraft fee out of my paycheck. My boss just hung up on him.

2. People with no common sense whatsoever. Seriously, if the sign says the car wash is closed, why do you buy one then come in and yell at me? If the light up sign is not lit up at night, guess what? THE CAR WAS IS CLOSED! It's not my fault you lack common sense.

3. Just about every damn teenager in my city. All the kids drive down my street when theya re going to/coming from school. So I get to sit in my driveway for 30-45 minutes while these kids drag race on my 25 MPH street in brand new cars that mommy and daddy bought them. They look down on me driving my 1992 Mazda Protege compared to their 2007 BMW. They don't understand the value of a dollar because most of the little bastards don't have to work for anything. And when they wreck their brand new vehicles because they have no respect for what they have...mommy and daddy buy them the BETTER MODEL of the car!

4. People who are at the checkout and wait until after they get their total to start getting money ready. I also hate the people that don't orginize their money and have it in a wadded ball in their pocket. These are the types of people, if you steal their money, they won't know how much you took because they had no clue how much they had.

People who cut you off in traffic and then flip you the bird or give you an evil look as though you were the one who was in the wrong...(have a lot of those here in Memphis)

Look in the TV Guide and see a movie that you like and look forward to watching it...only to find out it's replaced by something else.

People who call into radio talk shows and take forever and a day to make their point...say what you got to say or STHU!

People who berate their children in public...I have seen parents (if you can call them that) actually yell profanity at their kids to discipline them...I'm no fan of unruly kids, but that kind of behavior is inexcusable, not to mention ignorant.

Parents who don't use car seats (Stupid!)
