I work in a grocery store, and I hate it when people just shove stuff anywhere, especially when it is refrigerated stuff. I know that when I find things that can spoil, I out them in the disposal pile, but I wonder just how many people don't, ant they just put them back on the shelf? Ick!
I hate it when drivers don't yield to emergency vehicles.
I really get irritated when to go to a drive through, get all the way home, just to realize they messed up your order
Paying 3-4$ for an espresso that takes like mud!
People that chat all the way through a movie.
Mothers that don't take care of their whiny children in public.
Driving all the way to the campground, just to realize that your husband has forgotten the tent.(LOL)
Little kids that turn around and stare at church. and pick their nose!(I do love kids though!)
Not getting a thank you card for a wedding present you spent a ton of money on and invested a lot of time in getting it just perfect.
people that file bankruptcy, only to go out and get themselves right back into doubt.
teenage girls with no respect for themselves.
trolls that roam these threads, looking for a fight.
There's many more, but I have to save some for y'all!

I hear ya on that! Didn't the hours upon hours of Anna Nicole (so called news) drive you insane? I was ready to throw my television out the window! That reminds me of one of my biggest pet peeves, don't know how I forgot it in the first place
Telemarketers and junk mail. I started sending the mail back to them shredded! Maybe if enough people do it they'll stop! Now how to get rid of the telemarketers?

#1. Idiots driving in traffic talking on their cell phones and not paying attention to driving.
#2. Idiots swerving in and out of traffic with no concern for other drivers.
#3. Freaking LOUD music.
#4. Annoying religious people.
#5. People feeling the need to mind other's business.
And that's just the top 5!

Did you wake up on the wrong side of the bed, or did someone just piss in you cornflakes? That is so uncool! I would never wish such harm to someone, regardless of how I felt about them!

Damn, honey, have you thought about anger management?! You're going through life totally pissed off. Rule #1 - don't sweat the small stuff. Rule #2 - almost everything is "small stuff" (especially those things you itemized).

Tamara: Ditto on the Expresso!(I don't have room to put an espresso machine anyhere, a full blown one is big and expensive; I'm thinking of ordering one of those stovetop espresso gadgets, dunno if they work that well).

Ditto re: Emergency Vehicles. Also related - people that do not show respect for funerals, when a car caravan passes on the road. At least in small towns; they should know better.

Ditto on the trolls.

At present, my personal pet peeve is the VA (Veterans Administration). SOME good people may work there, but in my view most of them should be fired, the VA should be 'recycled'(based on personal experience, in addition to the news items).

Thanks, I'll take that into consideration!=) Valid points!
I am not angry though, just like to vent!

I really dislike cab drivers who show a blatant disregard at intersections and on curbs.

I am actually guilty of singling out cab drivers for traffic infractions. I try not to be racist, but I really think cab drivers are sometimes an annoying distinct race of people sent here to frustrate normal drivers.

I'm being facetious here, but feel my pain.

1. Being stuck in traffic.

2. People that make typos in the actual topics of the threads that they start.

3. Liberals, or anyone who bashes the current administration without offering any solutions (I think we have one on this thread).

1.People who claim to know it all or they've been there done that in every conversation.
2. Trolls
3. Agree with Tam.People who don't control their kids in public especially in a place where kids shouldn't be.
4. Eating at a restaurant and someone ison the cell phone talking so loud everyone can hear them. Don't need or want to hear their business.
5.Long wait in the doctors office. Don't tell me to be there at 1;30 and take me in at 2:30, put me in a little room where I sit for another half hour.
5.Calling acoustomer service number and have to listen to a recording and push all kinds of numbers to get the department you want and they put you on hold.
I could go on forever but I think these are my worst.

People who talk on cell phones while in a line to pay somewhere and therefore don't notice it's time to pay or the cashier has a question!

People who talk on cell phones while driving.(It's now illegal in Washington state)

Drivers who feel the need to endanger themselves and you by swerving in and out of traffic only to end up one car length in front of you!

Drivers who have their music so loud it makes your car vibrate.

People who let doors slam in your face

The guy in front of you at the checkout who fels the need to press out all his money and turn it all the same way and sloooooooowly put it in his wallet and then sort through all the coins, look at them all, then slooooooly pull out his coin purse and put them away, one at a time, all while you're waiting for him to move so the checker can begin scanning your stuff.

run on sentences...such as the one above :)

Not even when they have proven they deserve it? Perhaps Pol Pot, Hitler, Jeffery Dahmer?

Maria - "Cowboys in little cars" ?? Hehehe - I'm in Abilene, can't say I've seen (or noticed)'cowboys in little cars'.

For some reason, that image espouses a lot of merriment - IE a gut busting laugh.

Whew! Good thing I didn't write what I was originally going to: That I wished each one of them would wake up tomorrow with terminal testicular cancer.

Of course, only one of those four has the physical equipment required to GET testicular cancer, but that's between Condi and her love-practicin' ob-gyn.
