what really chaps my ass is seeing these lady drivers (95% of the time it's a lady) driving a $70,000 suv that you know has bluetooth, yet they are still flapping their skull with the phone to their ear and and driving like a bag of shit.

your car may be able to park itself, stay in its lane, brake when you're not paying attention, etc., but you need to learn how to drive the damn car, and quit looking at me when i yell at you at a stop light for coming into my lane without a turn signal and me having to hit the brakes because you're too concerned about being a chatty cathy on the phone with your sister talking about how big her 3 year old's shit was that day. i don't care so gtfo.

Two recent cases here:

1. Girl downloading ringtones while driving kills kid on bicycle. Ends up being charged with "Improper lane use" and gets 6 months probation.

2. Older guy has diabetic issues while driving, loses control and hits two students, killing one and badly injuring the other. Get 3-1/2 years behind bars.

Same DA in both cases.

Unreal...

I can only hope that the lady I saw reading her Kindle in her Jeep yesterday doesn't hurt anyone but herself...

People who have their phone ringers WAY too loud and it goes off more than once. One time I can understand, but if you're getting text after text and still have it on blast - you're an asshole.

Oh yea...

My boss actually corrected one of my peers for having his phone on vibrate but having it on the table in the conference room. It's like, why do that? It's still going to make this loud buzz that everyone will hear. Stuff it in a pocket or turn it on silent.

People who write out an entire request in the subject line of an email.

Only to copy and paste that same line in the body of the email.

I'm a female, but I swear I also loose my shit for this stuff once a day. If makeup is needed, DO IT IN THE FUCKING HOUSE NOT AT THE LIGHTS WHILE ON THE PHONE YOU DUMB FUCKS!!!

I have issues.

I have a Manager from Columbia. He would always say: if you need to reach me call me to my cell. That drives me absolutely insane.

"shut the lights"

Maybe it's a New Hampshire thing, but lots of people up there leave out "with" in many sentences.

Example: "Are you done the project?"

It makes my skin crawl.

Being on hold for 5+ minutes then you go through a shitty service area and your call drops.

ALSO, when dealing with a customer service rep and you explain your whole situation and they transfer you to another department and you have to explain it again.

Deciding to pull behind the one car in the left lane at a stoplight. Light turns green, and *then* the car in front of you signals that he's turning left. And there's no left turn arrow, so now you have to wait for the entire green light, can't move into the right lane because there's too much traffic, and the one car in front of you only turns left after the light has turned back red.

Amen , in our office area (built out old warehouse ******* there's no offices just bigger cubicles with high walls for managers. We have one guy that works for the other manager in the area who has the star trek phaser sound for his ring tone. Now he's new and going thru a divorce but that freaking phone goes off 15 times a day. I mentioned it in our managers meeting @ 4 weeks ago, so now when it goes off, still with volume up, he steps into the only conference room in our space and has his personal calls there(another pet peeve of mine). Said something to him today about and he was genuinely upset about my request to put it on vibrate and in his pocket, This should be fun going forward.

One other one, since our space is u shaped with bathrooms and a common kitchen area in the middle we have 2 thermostats. One each side of the U, well it's an all day battle, one side turns down other turns up, we alternate between gale force NorEaster winds and the freaking Scirocco's of the Sahara. Can't you just leave the thermstat at 75 or whatever.
