How about the times where they SAY something to the tunes of "I don't care", then you blurt out a suggestion and THEN that's where best case, they object to the first thing you say, all the way to a HUGE debacle that lasts HOURS? The following actually happened to me once with me and a neighbor at 9PM (in some fairness he was a bit drunk):
* "Hey how about Chipotle?" "Nah, I'm not in the mood for Mexican food"
* "Sushi?" "I don't like raw fish" "You can get a teriyaki bowl..." "Not a big fan"
[after many minutes of deliberation covering just about every region of food and restaurant in the area, we finally agree on Denny's and I drive there, only to sit down and already order... To be canceled 2 minutes later in favor of pizza, then another debate on where we want to order from and what toppings. We settle on Papa John's... Then realize they've closed only 5 minutes ago. I gave up and had leftovers despite REALLY having my appetite prepped for a pizza]

NEFARIOUS,

spot on.

i love when i hear "you pick" and get that groan like "wtf would you pick that place?".

another great one is the "let's just start driving and stop some place we find on the road." ya that's fine but when gas is $4.45 for premium and it's raining (and i can't have the windows down in cruising mode), we are going somewhere close that isn't packed.

They just want to sit in your M3 ... I know the feeling all too well since I sometimes deal with younger people who have never sat in a BMW before.

That is always infuriating. If it's not your turn, then sit the f*ck down and wait to be called.

No doubt. In these cases, I'll then typically pick a place only to have someone complain about it once we're there. "Wait a second, I thought you said you didn't care where we eat?"

At one of my old jobs we made a random restaurant picker which we loaded with all the local places we would typically go to. If you didn't like what it picked, tough shit gtfo!

Chewing tobacco/spitting.

Ah so true! I recently hung out with some people and we were talking about traveling. So I brought up my recent trip to Europe. I got about a minute in when some guy cut me off and started talking about cars. He talked so much and in the end we veered off to a kazillion different topics. I figured I wasn't going to get to finish my story so I went along with the topics.

Oh, also people who order a cheap mixed drink like a vodka/cranberry and then complain that they can't taste the alcohol.

I always thought maximizing the ratio of (alcohol content) : (alcohol taste) was a virtue of high quality alcoholic beverages

When you're in traffic and the dude in front of you makes eye contact through his outside mirror and then you have to do all kinds of shit just to not make eye contact again like check you phone and change the radio but you just know that guy is still looking and its freaking weird. But it's traffic so you can't go around. I hate that.

It's always the stuff that you're REALLY happy or passionate about that gets left in the the dust...

This literally just happened to me last week. I went to Arby's and I didn't get my Curley Fries.

I asked the lady at the window if everything was in there, she said yes. Checked it while I was driving away from the drive thru window, damn fries weren't in there.

So I went back through the drive thru, I had to wait 10 minutes due to a long ass line. The food was cold.. I flipped bat shit on the lady at the window. She said that she was 100% sure the fries were in there, and I was trying to get an extra order of fries. I said "Don't even pull that sh*t! I pull up in a $60k car and you are accusing me of screwing you for FRIES?! are you serious!? Where's the Manager?" I got my whole meal replaced and got to keep the old one. (They prob spit in the replacement so I didn't eat it and ate the original. lol)

Please tell me you didn't actually say that

That reminds me, I don't understand why fast food workers are so intent on throwing away food perfectly good food if they screw up an order.

I was at Popeyes one day and I ordered a 3 piece dinner with 2 thighs and and a wing. I received, I think, 2 legs and a thigh or something, so I bring my box back up to the counter and politely bring this to their attention. They bring me another box with 2 thighs and a wing, but they also take the original box and throw it away. I'm thinking damnit at least let me give it to some poor homeless guy or something .

Granted, maybe I'm being unreasonably nit-picky for wanting my order to be exactly correct. However, in my defense, if I had known that they were just going to waste food by throwing my original order away I probably wouldn't have bothered fixing it. I would've just eaten the original, incorrect order (2 legs and a thigh).
