Default Random things that piss me off...

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.

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! )

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.

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!

No really, please do go on. I find this enjoyable and amusing. Besides I agree with them and want to see what else we have in common!!!

So here let me help...

15) Teenagers that think the world owes them something
16) Kids that disrespect their parents
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

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........"
