I think we had a thread sort of like this on here before.......I could be wrong. Oh well, I will just use the same response from that thread............

Sitting in my seats at Heinz and somebody decides to either come back up to their seats or leave their seats while play is going on. You would think commonsense would tell you that maybe, just maybe wait until play stops? Or there is that big screen that's called a jumbotron that states every quarter that you should wait until play is stopped before deciding to get up or return to your seat.

Generally in a business situation, when you call someone and because they are not in and you have something to tell that person, so you want to leave a message. The secretary puts you through to their voice mail. The phone rings 4 times to have him or her tell you they are not there (and you already know that). You have to go through all this to leave the idiot a message. Why doesn't he/she use common sense and let their phone ring ONE time. It would be much more considerate. Who has the time to sit and listen to a dang phone ring needlessly?

Little old ladies trying to give exact change to the cashier, but they can't even see well enough to know what coin it is. So the cashier tells them it's a quarter, and they have to check it to see if it's a state quarter, and if it is, is it one they already have? But of course they can't remember, so just to be safe, they start digging for another one, and the process starts all over again. Anyone else have this problem?

That is terrible. Not only is it bad enough using checks theses days, but why do you have to WAIT till you're in line to write the damn thing! Fill it out except for the your sig and the amount before you get to the damn checkout line!

Yeah man...that is "Women 101". The first thing you have to learn is that rational answers don't exist. If a woman makes a comment like "I am so/look so fat!" Leave it alone or console. Don't agree. it's called fishing and they do it a lot.

You know, there's an easy way to deal with that question, or any variation on the same theme.

Whenever you hear "Do I look (plug in bad thing) in this (article of clothing)?" You should simply say "That's a minefield I won't walk through". If you are lucky, she'll get it. Most guys aren't lucky. If you ARE lucky, you get to explain what a minefield is to your woman.

In the minefield, every step is death. If you say "Yes", you blow up instantly. If you say no, that only means you have to keep walking the same minefield. It won't be long before you hear "Do you like my hair this way?", or "Do these jeans make my ass look fat?" None of these questions make any sense. There is no logic to these questions, therefore, there are no logical answers.

Always answer "That is a minefield I will not cross tonight"

no no no no no

you NEVER tell her shes fat, agree with her that shes fat, say "i dont swant to walk in that minefield" because she'll interpret that as a yes, i am fat.

ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS say. you will great to me or you look fine

at worst she'll say "oh, you just love me"

We all have them. What are some of yours?

For me, some of them are.....

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! :blurp:

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. :smile:

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

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?? :sofunny: 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!

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. :busted:

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:

These come to mind.....

People who get up during play at a Steeler game. Wether your new to attending games or not, commonsense would tell you to wait until play is stopped. Also, the voice on the jumbrotron makes it very clear before the start of every game.

Since I'm on the topic, people who go to the games and are unable to hold their alcohol and end up getting up every five minutes in order to take a leak. If your going to get that drunk and get up that often, just stay home. Eitherway, your not going to remember the game.

Standing in line at a store and the person behind me is basically sitting on my shoulder like a parrot. In the words of Joe Pesci in "Goodfellas", hovering over me like "impending doom". BACK OFF. We are not conjoined twins.

That strip of tape on CD's/DVD's. One word........why?

I have more but those are the top four that come to mind at this point in time.

You have no idea. The worst one I ran into was during the Ravens game last season:

I get up at the half to hit the bathroom and grab a drink. Obviously the lines are fairly large, so when I get back the 3rd quarter already started, and I was in the middle of a play as I was ready to walk down the aisle. I walk down 1 or 2 steps, and sit down in the aisle so that I don't get in anyone's way trying to watch the game. The jackass behind me tells me to get up so he can get past me. I just ignored him until the play ended.

One more PP...

Going into a public restroom (this happens a lot at PNC Park) 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.
